I haven't forgotten about the drawing for my Google Friend Connect Peeps. I've been busy, busy, with my mother in law in town. As far as mothers-in-law go, she's a good one, but I'm not sure there is such a thing as a stress free m-i-l visit.
Sooooooo, I was in Target today meandering aimlessly in the food section. We didn't really need anything, it was just an outing for my mother in law, so I was just kinda wandering around. Picking up this, reading that, audibly gasping at the price of that!?....I finally made my way to the dairy section and my nosy eyes kept a-moving until they happened upon the Greek yogurt.
I've tried it before, and I wasn't something that made my tastebuds tingle. Well, it did, but not in a good way. To me, it tasted like eating spoonfuls of sour cream............. Wait! ding! ding! ding! ding!......... That's when a lightbulb went off!
I said to myself, "Self, you don't dislike sour cream just cause you can't eat it by the spoonful. You like it in dips, on your tacos. Self, you've got to look at Greek yogurt in a different way!"
You don't hate mustard cause it sucks as a pasta sauce and you don't hate KY, wait you do hate KY, its Astroglide that you love. Anyway, back to the dairy section...You know what I'm getting at.
So I picked up the 2%, cause you know ya girl don't do fat free. Not my dairy, not my meat, not my anything. The only thing I do fat free is fruit. Anyway, the 7 ounce portion size was just enough that it wouldn't be a waste if I decided to give it a flying scissor kick right up outta my kitchen AND at 99 cents, I didn't have to dip into my bbq fund to get it.
So tonight, I sliced up a Pink Lady apple, the best apple ever created and dipped it into the yogurt. I've got to say, it was pretty freaking good.! The apple was just sweet enough and the yogurt was just tart enough and the marriage of the two was as wonderful as Kim and Kris. Well maybe marriage isn't the best term. But to make a short story even shorter, if you don't like Greek yogurt, try it with something else. You might be surprised.
