Potatoes and Yogurt. Yogurt and Potatoes.

 


This is not a cooking blog, but every now and then I will post something about food. Saturday I came into 4-32 oz containers of non-fat plain yogurt that is good till June. They also gave us, 2 10lb sacks of Idaho potatoes. I had just bought a 5 lb sack so I gave Char the 5 lb sack and we are left with 20lbs of potatoes. I made a potato soup and tomorrow I will make a potato salad. Tonight we're having fried chicken, (that I will marinate in yogurt) mashed potatoes, and homemade pan gravy. 

I also made a yogurt cake up above. It has a really unique taste - I like it. Not too sweet. You load up half the batter and then top it with walnut, brown sugar and cinnamon crumble - add the final layer and top with the remaining crumble. 

You can't freeze yogurt - it changes the texture. So I have till June. It's plain yogurt - while I don't care for fruit ladened yogurt due to its just too sweet for me, I did get some frozen strawberries. That was good  - and also we can add some honey to it. 

I have a feeling I may be sick of potatoes and yogurt in the not-so-distant future...

  1. Add to having a surplus of potatoes is you don't eat as much as you get older. Even my older brother has slowed in his eating. However, we eat a lot of potatoes. I would have to work at eating the yogurt. I wonder how yogurt would be with cereal as opposed to milk?

    1. Back in the 70's I adored yogurt. I guess I ate too much of it because now I can hardly stand it. It's too sweet if you buy it with the fruit flavoring which really defeats the purpose. It is good for you if you have a bad gut -

  3. When I buy plain yogurt to make my chicken salad, I eat the rest of the yogurt with honey and fruit. But potatoes are not one of my favorites and I can't imagine what I would do with 20 pounds of them.
