Okay - so I had a rebate offer on Checkout 51 for the 35 oz carton of Fage strained nonfat Greek yogurt. I looked at several stores and finally found it at Walmart. Not a big fan of plain yogurt but I figured I could eat it on fruit or something. I opened it last week and had some over fruit with a little honey oat granola on top - and a little stevia sprinkled on it. It was okay but not something I would want to eat every morning.
Yesterday I noticed the side of the carton said "Use within 5 days of opening" - what the heck! ?!?!? How am I going to eat almost 4 cups of yogurt in 2 -3 days?
So searched for some yogurt recipes. Found a couple chicken recipes and plan to use one of those tomorrow for supper. Chicken enchiladas - the yogurt is combined with cream of chicken condensed soup and cheese to make the sauce - or a baked chicken - the chicken is coated with a yogurt mixture and then baked. But that still left about 3 cups of yogurt.
Chocolate Chip Cookies - yogurt in the batter but no eggs. Now that would be perfect for Tom since he loves raw cookie dough. So I mixed up a double batch and the dough tasted pretty good. Baked a couple dozen cookies and they were okay, sort of dense. Put most of the dough in a container in the freezer for Tom and another smaller batch for Bekah.
Another recipe was for a cake but we definitely did not need cake in the house. I was planning to make some sweet corn bread for supper to go with some soup so tried the yogurt in that recipe. About 3/4 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup milk in place of the 1 cup milk. The batter was thicker than usual but it baked up nice. Tom said he really liked it.
That left about 1/2 cup of yogurt so I added some vanilla and sweetener and will take that to work tomorrow with some pineapple tidbits, banana and granola for my breakfast.
