i wanna talk about yogurt. it’s true.
Us Greeks love our yogurt. we put it on everything…rice, eggplant…tzatziki hello!!
i remember being in my mid 20’s when someone brought it to my attention that putting yogurt on my rice was “weird”.
i think this was someone i was actually courting…seeking out as a potential mate.
Pfft…decision made. bye bye!
Seriously…it’s true. i love yogurt on rice. not that i eat rice anymore…but it just goes together.
that’s how this greek goddess was raised…
But its gotta be greek yogurt. not any other yogurt would suffice. I currently buy the Astro – Balkan Style (ohhhh, i just gave Astro a free shout out…any chance they will give me a free life time supply?)
But – and this is weird….
the other day…i had just washed my day right outta my hair…got in to my fat pants and was ready to call it a night…
when i got a craving.
the most unusual craving to date.
I raided my cupboards and realized i didn’t have the one thing i wanted. (isn’t that always the way)
So it’s late at night..i am in my jammies…i throw on my shoes and head to the store.
i wanted honey and apparently i wanted it right now!!!
Us Greeks also eat yogurt with honey. throw in a few walnut pieces and you have heaven in a bowl.
Since i have been adding the odd, good for you carb back in to my life i don’t feel so guilty about the honey.
oh honey how i have missed you.
It’s not actually sugar and it’s all natural…so i don’t feel too bad
But where did this craving come from????? i kid you not when i say the last time i ever ate yogurt and honey…i was under 10 years old.
i have not had it since.
so where did this need come from?? why did i have to leave my house just to make this simple little dessert?
i mean i understand leaving the house for…oh…a peanut buster parfait
but honey and yogurt…really???
anyways that’s my story. you should try it…seriously…it’s quite the yum yum.
on my way in this morning i took out my Sara CD (i know, for shame) and i threw in my Beth Hart. Sometimes this goddess feels like listening to something angry and rough 🙂
i got a whole lot of singing and chair dancing in today folks.

Have an awesome Friday!!
