Greek is king
Greek yogurt is creamy, slightly tart, thick goodness. I tried it for the first time a couple years ago and have been hooked ever since. Regular yogurt now seems runny and weak and I am very uninterested in its fruit-on-the-bottom offerings; I must state for the record, though, that in the case where Greek style is not available, I still pick up Yoplait for nostalgia's sake. I'm not sure how nutritious it is (especially considering their flavors like Key Lime Pie), but I used to eat a ton of Cherry Orchard and Strawberry Banana growing up, so it takes me back a bit.
Anyway, back to the above. This bowl of fruit and yogurt was a pristine way to start my day compared to last night's spicy dinner (of which no pictures because while it tasted great, its monochromatic look did not photograph well). I was inspired by Heather's Squid, Chickpea and Chorizo Salad post, but leaving the red peppers and parsley out was a mistake. Also, mine was less a salad as a quick stew of sorts on top of which I added Tabasco hot sauce. I'm sure I'll make it again and hopefully put up a photo then.
