1 quart milk
1tb plain yogurt

Heat milk to 180°, stirring often. Cool to 115°. Pour into mason jar, stir in yogurt. Cover. Incubate in Excalibur dehydrator for 5 hours at 115°.

Or you can incubate in a cooler or a crockpot, etc.

Yay! I finally have delicious yogurt that I can make at home. Thank you excalibur!

Fish tacos

Marinate fish in paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and lime juice for 20 minutes. Then saute until cooked thru.

Make coleslaw dressing with sour cream, mayo, chili powder, salt, and fresh lime juice.

Warm corn tortillas and top with fish, coleslaw, avocado and peach salsa. Yum!

Chicken Divan

A little soupy tonight, but really good!

Cooked brown rice, frozen ahead
Frozen broccoli
Leftover rotisserie chicken
White sauce
Sharp cheddar cheese

Oven to 375°. Heat frozen rice and broccoli in oven. Shred chicken. Make white sauce with 2c. milk, 1/3 c. flour, 1tsp salt. Stir with whisk until thick. Remove from heat. Add half of shredded cheese. Stir in chicken. Pour over hot broccoli and rice and stir. Top with cheese. Return to oven until hot. Then broil 2~3 minutes until cheese is browned.

Note: my rice was a wild rice/brown rice blend and I really liked it in this.
