Terrible picture. It was nighttime and the kitchen lighting is not that great at all. We love our yogurt here. I realized it’s been a long time since I’ve had strawberry-banana yogurt, so I made up a strawberry-banana sauce and stirred it into some yogurt I’ve had sitting in the fridge for awhile. Yummy.   […]
