Secret Recipe Club. A favorite time of the month, comes in three very separate sections. First I receive my new assignment. This month I got Bklyn Locavore. , I read possibly every recipe on the site, pinning my favorites on a secret board as I go along. Second step, I make the “winner”, the chosen, the most desired of the recipes that I have saved. Thirdly, I get to see who had me and what they picked from my blog right here, right now on revile day. It’s fun stuff. Usually I hum, I haw, I go back and forth trying to decide what I want most. Not this month, this month I saw the recipe for Cool Yogurt Salad, and immediately added the ingredients to my grocery list and made it A.S.A.P. It is possible that I just sat in my seat at dinner, devouring yogurty goodness, it is possible a few words escaped my lips as I ate, probably something along the lines of yummy, yummy, yummy. Anyways, it’s good. Very good, serve with Naan bread, or pita chips, or just scoop into your mouth using extra-large spoon. Your choice.
