Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

I like simple recipes. I’ve been eating a lot of this lately:

Frozen fruit
Yogurt
Granola (optional)

I started out trying to make smoothies, but my smoothie blender is pretty sad, and I had to add lots of fluid to make it actually blend fruit and yogurt up. Plus there was a lot of waste left on the sides of the blender.

So I just started putting it in a bowl. I really like the frozen mixed berries or just straight up raspberries. They have recently been the least expensive options. Fresh berries would probably work fine, but I like the convenience of keeping packages of frozen fruit available.

For the yogurt I’ve mostly stuck with plain Greek yogurt, but I’ve tried vanilla and regular yogurt. The berries are usually sweet enough for me.

I’ve occasionally added granola. When I do I like this Coconut Almond Curry granola. The curry really adds an interesting flavor.

A great editorial on Payday Loans, and Lotteries

from the Washington Post

In a place where government has utterly failed to provide adequate education and public services, government is using advertising to exploit the desperation of poor people in order to raise revenue that funds other people’s public services. This is often called a “regressive” form of taxation. The word does not adequately capture the cruelty and crookedness of selling a lie to vulnerable people in order to bilk them.

This is a justice thing, it shouldn’t be political.
