Greek-Nasty (Updated)

To start... that title is deceiving

Charlie has been wanting me to write about my revelation for a little while now..
 but the constant complaining about being pregnant still takes ALL MY TIME!

 I am a (flavored) Greek Yogurt convert.

There, I said it.

I had been, and still use nasty plain Greek Yogurt in place of sour cream, where it belongs. As a condiment.

The beginning of the end was when were having dinner with sweet sweet Dani at Speaking of the Speights and her beyond funny husband Carson at Isn't that Random. Dani was telling me that Carson had accidentally thrown away her large tub of Plain Greek Yogurt (rightfully) because he thought it was "normal" yogurt that had gone bad.

I'm not sure why I included that part... but anyway Dani vowed to make me try her honey/Greek yogurt concoction that night. Thankfully, I made it outta there without the torture. But told her I would try the "honey at the bottom" kind when we went to the store next.

She badgered me about it for a good week...

Then, like the good, honest to my word, person I am, I kept my word and picked up the honey and blueberry flavors.

UPDATE: Ty Paul Monroe does have a very real hand in this come-to-Greek conversation. I was semi-forced to try the pre-mixed Greek yogurt variety at his house weeks before the Speight confrontation. I do need to give credit where it is due.

I hate to admit it. She was right. They are good. ::hangs head in shame::

I immediately went and got 6 more of the Blueberry (admit it. The honey isn't as good as the blueberry). 

I then made the commitment and got a whole buncha them from Costco... and then gave away the pineapple to my other Greek yogurt loving friend Meredith ... not feeling that one either, man I'm picky...

Anyway... Point being, I'm now hooked. Charlie isn't a convert just yet (I just force feed him some when I make my little parfait at home) but I feel it may be soon... maybe not. I don't know.

That yellow thing is a pencil... I keep a hyper clean desk and work. Not.
It's also not in the yogurt, just really close to it.

I'm not a minimalist anything, I still have to put AT LEAST a serving of Kashi Go-Lean Crunch (cereal of choice for the last 10 years) in to the weird smelling cup-o-joy before I eat it.


  1. Hahaha! I LOVE it! I'm so honored to get a mention in this hilarious post! I'm so glad you tried it - even if it was to get me off your back! :) Now, what you NEED to do is put the yogurt in your smoothies...trust me, you'll thank me (again!) ;).
