Just not hungry tonight

February 10, 2007

I’m not hungry, but since I haven’t eaten much of anything healthy all day, I knew I better put something in my stomach or I was going to regret it.

The reason for the absence of hunger? I did a taste testing this afternoon – Pamela’s Irresistable Chocolate Brownie Mix. And I added chocolate chips to the batter. I ate too many.

Pretty good, but I felt that there was a chalky aftertaste. Maybe it was just me. It didn’t stop me from eating 3 big pieces, though.

Anyway, I needed something light. And I had a new-to-me product in the fridge – Greek yogurt.

Greek Yogurt with Fig and Honey Swirl
Adapted from a recipe by Tyler Florence

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1 cinnamon stick
1 orange, juiced
12 dried figs, chopped into quarters
1 small container Greek yogurt
A small handful of almonds

In a saucepan, combine the honey, water, orange juice, cinnamon stick, and figs over medium heat. Simmer until figs are soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, take out the cinnamon stick, and let cool.

In a dry frying pan, toast the almonds until golden.

Take the container of yogurt and divide between 2 serving dishes. Pour the cooled fig and honey sauce over the yogurt, top with almonds, and serve.

Oohh….this sounds delicious. I discovered the Trader Joe’s Greek style yogurt and it is fantastic. I will definitely have to try this!
