Our First Attempt At Water Kefir

I got my live organic water kefir in the mail today. I am so excited!

I rinsed a clean quart jar with filtered water.

Boiled about 2/3 cup filtered water. Then added it to the jar.

Added 1/3 cup raw sugar to the hot water, and mixed it until dissolved.

Added cool filteted water until about 1 inch from the 4 cup line.

Added 1/4 cup kefir grains.

Covered jar with coffee filter (to allow air flow, but keep dirt, bugs, and other stuff out) and put screw band over it to hold it on.

It's now in the cupboard eating and doing it's job.

We shall see how it is doing tomorrow.

Moses Turns 4

Last Tuesday my little Moses turned 4. How do they grow up so fast?

He had a good day. He got a spaghetti dinner, and then we had cake. Brent had a vision of a volcano cake. It was a super chocolate cake, with chocolate chips, hot fudge for the icing, and in the middle was a pyroclastic flow of chocolate milk and dry ice.

He loved it!
