Just catching up

The Mrs. caught a deal on Greek Yogurt at the store the other day. The brand was Chobani
While Fage is pretty much the standard around this part of the country, Chobani is made in NY state, so I don't know why I haven't seen it before.
On sale, it was a buck per 6 oz container, so I can't afford to have it every day. Regular price is probably about double that.
Greek yogurt is so much, I guess one could say, richer, than regular yogurt. It is really thick and creamy. It nearly reminds me of a cream cheese/yogurt hybrid. I've heard it is possible to replicate the process at home with regular cheap yogurt, but I've never done it. Back to the Chobani product. I had the strawberry yesterday, and peach today. Each was very good, not too sweet, and the fruit tasted fresh. It has zero fat, which is amazing considering how thick it is. The calorie total was 140 for the 6 oz cup. And it was worth every single one. It delivers 14 grams of protein, and 20 grams of carbs, of which 19 are sugar.
The Mrs. picked up peaches while at the grocery, and I was, to say the least, disappointed. I've become used to the great ones from the farm market, and these were hard, and the taste was more peachy, than peach. She did get some nice strawberries, so it wasn't a total loss as far as fresh foods. But this weekend, I'm going to really whine until she gets to the local farmers market. I want my sweet and juicy peaches. And the corn should be in. I need some sweet white corn. 'tis the season.

Greek yogurt? Have to try that with my white eggplant. Looking for a good recipe--have one?

corn has been in for at least a month...so I guess you lose...

@ plantbuddy: No, I wish I had one. Sounds like they would go together well, though.

@ anonymous: How did I lose? And just now it's showing up in NJ. I try to buy locally only.

Funny seeing you here. Since you've decided to curb my daily intake of "...yells at cars", though I'd pay you a visit here. I really like. Don't know how you balance peaches and all of your blogs.

Ok, so now I'm going to have to keep an eye out for greek yogurt.

Were you a salesman in a former life?

@ Don: I'm all over the place. Kind of like --ya know.

@ Beamer: Yes. One of the many jobs in my very checkered career.
