Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge

Slightly more than anticipated, as yesterday whilst out grabbing some extra milk, I impulse purchased some Tzatziki and pitta bread

And can you see the Greek yoghurt sitting on the middle shelf?

It’s one world week at school. The Kids’ have been food-tasting.

It transpires my 4-year-old isn’t too keen on frogs legs.

However my  giaourtiophobic 8-year-old seems to have conquered her fears.

(Yes, there is a specific term for the fear of yoghurt!)

So pleased was I, that 2 pots of greek yoghurt with honey just popped into my basket. Along with Tzatziki – which also coincidentally is yoghurt. I’m hoping that this new found confidence continues into trying other international dairy products. I’m thinking raita etc… oh the options are endless!

Coincidentally I have been craving greek yoghurt myself since watching this TV advert.

The track the ad agency chose was very apt. I could not get it out of my head.

Being on the 6&6 allows a treat a day. And rather than indulge in  nutritionally deficient chocolate or a.n.other satan-endorsed-snack – I’ve decided to go sugar and fat crazy on real food.

So good and tasty – it hurts.

But back to No Waste Tastes Great.

Confession time.

I’m so rubbish some weeks. It’s slow-cooked ham. That’s not clever.

How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…and don’t forget to drop a link in the comments if you’ve blogged about it!

No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.

    I’m a big supporter of full fat et al over ‘fake’ low fat stuff. Can’t go wrong with real food I say!

    Fear of yogurt. Now that’s interesting. It wasn’t just that she didn’t like the taste or texture?

      Think I may be slightly building her part here 😉
      However saying that she will not enter a room if yoghurt is being eaten. Maybe one day I’ll be posting she has won an oscar?

    Wonderful that kids get to taste food from different cultures at school! My Food Rescue this week also involves yogurt!

    Full-fat food for the win! Good stuff.
    Here we wasted some leftovers from the lunches the kids took to school, also my partner just threw out some perfectly good couscous (WHY?!). A friend gave me some loquats yesterday but they were already rotting this afternoon.

    Too bad about your ham – have you ever heard the saying, “Eternity is two people and a ham”? It can be hard to eat day after day!

    Greek yogurt … mmmm

    • simplybeingmum May 27, 2013, 7:05 pm

      What a great saying. Expect to see it blatantly plagarised here on the blog from here till… you guessed it…eternity!
