Mmm… Food

Beef Stroganoff with Greek Yogurt and Dill

We had my parents over for dinner this past Saturday. We decided to make Beef Stroganoff with Greek Yogurt and Dill featured in the February 2009 issue of Real Simple. As repped on the recipe page this version employs greek yogurt instead of the standard sour cream and butter, significantly reducing the amount of fat intake. Awesome. And served over a whole wheat garlic fettuccine I ordered on-line from Pappardelle’s (seriously some of the tastiest and unique flavoured pasta) we added fiber and made this meal even more nutritious. Of course in what at times can be a whirlwind of entertaining, I forget to get out my camera and have no documented proof of how delicious this meal was. However, I do have the fact that my mother asked for “A Doggie Bag” as proof that it was tasty. I used sirloin for the meat and my parents rarely ever eat hamburgers let alone steak, so I felt pretty good when this request was made. I though, can’t take any credit for the cooking of this meal though. April executed everything, from salad greens with blackberries and a fig balsamic vinaigrette, the creamed spinach(which was also in Real Simple) and her version of Banana Chocolate Walnut muffins with a Cream Cheese frosting. Mmm… sooo tasty!!! And once again good for you. Whole wheat flour, no butter, splenda just all around goodness. Props to April!!! Perhaps I’ll remember to pull my camera out again for our next cooking adventure this week!!!

so, it turns out i have, in fact, had FAGE greek yogurt! it’s what rene always uses for indian food, but i had never thought of employing it to mimic red mango yogurt. we had some left over from last week’s indian adventure so i added splenda and covered it with berries and black cherries. YUM-O (as april once said.) i picked up a larger container at the store yesterday!
