Chobani, I Miss You!!! *tear*
So, yes...I forgot my yogurt today, which is making me extremely sad. I know that might sound silly to some people, but my Sparkies know what a good snack is like. We rely upon it. We trust in it. We don't have to think about how many calori... Read more

Day 2 Reflection: Prepared to Fresh Foods
