I Now Get the Greek Yogurt Hype

Cravings

My first breakfast in Santorini consisted of fruit, some type of bread, and a small dollop of yogurt. I’m not a huge yogurt fan, but I had to try it right? Each day after, my spoonfuls of yogurt became bigger and bigger. It was addictively delicious. ‘Real’ greek yogurt has a whipped creamy texture with a tart finish. So began my search here at home to find this same thing.

The closest I’ve found is Chobani natural flavor. The texture is very similar to what I had in Santorini, but the tart taste is missing. And while I could eat ‘real’ greek yogurt on it’s own, Chobani requires a sweetener of some kind.

If anybody knows of an authentic greek yogurt that can be found at the supermarket, let me know.

Stovetop Potpourri is Kind of Stupid

HOME

I made a potpourri for the stove yesterday. You know the kind where you put different things in a pot of boiling water and it’s supposed to fill the room with aromatic wonders.

I chose lemon, rosemary, and vanilla mainly because I had them all in the house.

After about an hour, I could only smell it in the kitchen. And guess what? It wasn’t that great of a smell either.

My opinion on stovetop potpourri’s: Why bother? Just buy a candle or light an incense stick.

Scary Movie Month is Here

Culture

I love scary movies and I make it a point to watch a lot of them in October, always at night for the full effect. The downside of scary movie month is that there are a lot of bad ones out there. Here are some decent ones that I’ve seen recently.

Veronica

This is a Spanish movie loosely based on a true story. Girls summoning spirits with Ouija boards…never a good idea.

 

The Visit

Sending your kids off to visit their grandparents. They’ll be safe…maybe.

 

Eden Lake

A young couple spending time at a lake and a group of troublemaking boys on bikes. Not a good combo.

 

The Nightmare

This is a documentary of people who have sleep paralysis and see the shadow man. I can vouch for these people. I’ve seen him too…honest.

 

Cargo

A zombie movie done right. I was impressed with this one.
