Downsizing Food to Fit Smaller Budgets (CNN)

After seeing a number of people sing the praises of Greek Yogurt I picked some up a couple of times. The first round I used in sauces. The verdict good but I don't understand the fuss. Over the last couple of days I used some as a substitute for sour cream -- Very, Very good. Then I tried the idea of stirring in some honey and walnuts -- very, very, very good and the mixture would be amazing spooned over fresh berries. I am a convert. The link above is to a version from Stonyfield Farms which isn't the brand I had but I am on the look out for this organic version.

This post made me smile. I wish I lived where a combination of walking and public transit would get me to and from work. This post has a similar theme: the joy of connecting to community and place.
