Greek Yogurt

We are still very much on the comfort food diet around here and while this post is not a recipe, it certainly is comfort food. I recently discovered Greek yogurt. After a conversation with my sister-in-law about where to find it in my grocery store, I picked some up this past weekend (I found it in the organic section, even though it's technically not organic). Yesterday I ate it for lunch and thought I'd share my indulgence with you, even if it is only a picture. If you've never indulged, you should.

I bought the 2 percent variety -- my sister-in-law did not recommend (highly discouraged) the fat free. The 2 percent was very thick and creamy, and I probably won't vary for future purchases.

I sugared some strawberries yesterday morning in anticipation, and then at lunch time I spooned some yogurt in a bowl, topped it with strawberries and some of the juice, and a big handful of Brown Sugar Granola. I used real sugar in my strawberries because I'm trying to stop using sugar substitutes. You could use honey, but I figure a little sugar doesn't hurt. The result is really yummy -- the Greek yogurt is much thicker than regular, and while still tangy like regular, the texture difference makes it much more of a treat.

After I took the picture, I stirred it all up and ate it like a little kid eating a hot fudge sundae!
