Food Stuff

I just got done grocery shopping at HEB and I thought I'd do a product review. Brandi has her book review and I have my food review.


This is one of the things I bought today because I love the brand Kashi and the pizza just looked really good. Let me tell you, it was good, but the picture was a little deceiving. See all those yummy bell peppers and that good-looking grilled chicken? Well, take four of those bell pepper slivers and about six pieces of grilled chicken and put them on a pizza and that's really what it looks like. I'll be letting the folks at Kashi know how I feel about their veggie and chicken rationing as soon as I'm done here.

I also thought I'd share a little tip that probably one or two of you, at the most, will be interested in. My kids love yogurt. In the past, my mother-in-law has sent home those little individual cups of fruit-flavored yogurt with brightly colored cartoons on the label and more ingredients than I can read in one sitting. I let the kids eat them once, but threw the rest away and told her she didn't need to buy yogurt because I always have it on hand. Here's what I have started making for the kids that they really love. It doesn't have a catchy name, it's still just yogurt, but the kids make it different every time. I start with this from HEB.

Then I add preserves and whatever we have that the kids request. Sometimes it's strawberry preserves and coconut. Sometimes blackberry preserves and walnuts. Elliott and I like ours with the works. Preserves, coconut, walnuts or pecans, dark chocolate chips and granola. It has great flavor and the only preservatives in it are the ones, if any, in your preserves or toppings. You can also buy plain yogurt but it takes a little more of the preserves to flavor it.

I think I'll have some right now!

I like stonyfield too. I am addicted to adding blueberries to my yogurt. Don't know what it is but it works magic in my mouth! I would like to be so hippie to make my own yogurt. Lets open a hippie cool shop in downtown clyde with organic coffee and tea and yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies and fresh juice and whatever we feel like making that day to eat. Clyde Natural Bistro!

My favorite is the full-fat yogurt. Have you ever gotten it? It has a layer of thick, rich cream at the top.....sigh....so delicious. You should really consider it. It rocks.

Great idea! We do something similar. We start with plain vanilla yogurt and add in jam or fresh fruit...or we use it as a "dip" for fruit slices and pretzels (my toddler loves dipping!). :)

Yogurt is so underrated. Have you tried the banilla flavor? If you like bananas, and maybe even if you don't, it is oh. so. good.
