Catching Up

Hi everyone!

Can you tell I’ve been busy? I have been neglecting poor TFG, but I never stop documenting. So here we go with a little bit of a “catch up” post, if you will. The last 11 days have been filled with working, catching up with friends, spending time with my fiance, cooking, eating, yoga-ing, eating…and the list goes on.

Let’s start with (our) first snow of the season:

snow dayNot a whole lot, but it’s snow in Dallas. I woke up at 6:30 am and jumped out of bed excited to watch the big flakes pour down. I wish I was that excited to wake up every morning.

That morning I should have been in the mood for oatmeal or pancakes. Something warm, right? Wrong. I have just now discovered Fage (where have I been?) and it was screaming my name from my fridge…

fageI ate it while I was warm in my bed. Plain Fage with honey on the side and a bowl of finely chopped honeycrisp apples. Because apples are more fun to eat like that. This is the best snack/breakfast ever.

Speaking of yogurt! The nice people over at Chobani sent me a 12-pack of assorted flavors so I could review them here at That Foodie Girl. The review will come. But for now, you can see how excited I was to get my Chobani package!

packageThe inside of the package was so well-designed and trendy, I can’t wait to show you all. Here’s what my refrigerator looked like after I ripped into that box.

chobaniI’m really a plain Greek yogurt kind of girl, but it’s been fun to have a “different” snack. My favorite so far is the blood orange.

I’ve also been cooking a lot. Ryan and I received a new stainless steel Le Creuset in the mail as one of our wedding/engagement gifts. To say I was excited would be an understatement.

le creusetFirst thing I cooked in it was baby potatoes. And I also learned you have to be very careful not to burn the pan…just took a (lot) bit of scrubbing.

Another recent meal? Quick and easy: spelt spaghetti with homemade vodka sauce (plain Chobani + marinara + garlic + sea salt), sliced pesto garlic chicken topped with fresh parmesan. Side spinach sala. This was delicious.

italian nightThe pasta sauce was even man approved. (I told him about the Greek yogurt after he commented on how good the dish was).

And I will leave you with a photo of my new favorite hard cider. If I feel like drinking a jolly rancher, I will reach for this bottle again.

  1. Let us know which Chobani flavor is your favorite? Considering how much I love greek yogurt, I surprisingly have only tried Cho’s plain flavor.

    Mmm love tiny purple potatoes! For some reason the colored ones are much more tasty than plain white.
