The fun forum. Discuss anything here.
I have been buying the large packs of the plain Chobani and adding my own fruit in the form of the light pie filling.
It ends up being less sugar, half the price, in the portions I want, and the I feel the comstock pie filling fruit is much more pastry-like and familiar to me. Plus...apple pie yogurt works well.
Not sure what youre paying for large packs, but I believe Tops has Chobani on sale this week 10 for $10.
Hmmm......you've given me an idea. I'll get the plain and add garlic to it. For a softer, gentler garlic flavor than what I've been preparing.
Everyone around me is sneezing and hacking up a lung, so I've been throwing about 6 cloves of garlic into whatever I eat. Not only will it fight off the virus, it will keep everyone far enough away from me that I won't be within range of being sneezed on, coughed on or otherwise infected.
So far, so good. (insert dragon breath smilie here)
I have been adding some clover honey I bought at the public market to plain chobani and that has gotten me off of the fake fruit altogether. I love it.
Added a lot more honey, mixed well and used it as a fruit dip at a party. Works with apple, melons, strawberries (especially), but not pineapple. It was a hit and no one thought it was yogurt.
I need more local gift ideas!
One note on gift cards... which I hate giving... most people pick up those chain store cards that you can easily buy at any chain supermarket. Try to stay away from giving those this year. Why buy a card for Olive Garden or Famous Dave's when you can get a card to a local place like Dinosaur/Sticky Lips BBQ or Basil. There are so many great local places.
I wish Seneca Farms was not closed for the season. I know someone who would love a gift card to it.
$12 plus shipping (if not local)
Order by contacting JPaige
Another great idea for gifts (especially for out-of-staters_:
http://www.maplelandfarms.com/shopping/ ... gories.asp
I brought a lot of these to china and they were very intrigued by the flavor and origin of maple.
mentioned in the other topic:
I don't buy trees anymore, but when I did, I bought from Pete's Tree Farm, which was considerably more expensive than buying from Home Depot, but considering these trees are grown in upstate (vs most trees, which are in shipped form Canada) they are fresher and I'm supporting a local business.
The website is certainly worth a look for the design alone.
The Holley Location is cheaper and has more trees.
If your intent is to buy a locally grown tree, be careful as a lot of farm markets will just resell Canadian trees. Look for an actual tree farm that specializes in trees.
Love this idea
