I was eating a Stonyfield Farms yogurt this morning (Maple Vanilla flavor -- it sounds weird but it's really good), and on the lid there was a message about a contest they're having. Something like: "Send us a healthy version of your favorite recipe, that includes Stonyfield Farms yogurt, and you can win a trip to a cooking school somewhere." Which, of course, as I sat down in Constitutional Law class, got me thinking about the worst possible recipes I could think of that would incorporate yogurt. A few ideas:

1. Veal Parmesan & Yogurt. Cover the veal with cheese, tomato sauce, and three cups of yogurt, preferably strawberry-flavored, although lemon will work as well. Bake in an oven until the yogurt turns brown.

2. Yogurt Shrimp Fried Rice. In a wok, mix white rice, soy sauce, bits of scrambled egg, assorted vegetables, shrimp bits, and lots and lots of yogurt. Stir-fry until well-mixed. Add soy sauce to taste.

3. KFC+Y. Buy a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Pour yogurt (again, fruit flavors work best) over the top. Enjoy.

4. Tuna Salad, Yogurt-style. Mix tuna salad as you might normally. Instead of mayonnaise, use coffee-flavored yogurt. Spread onto un-rolled fruit roll-ups. Makes a delicious lunch.

5. Yogurt Cheez Doodles. Dip Cheez Doodles in yogurt. Enjoy.

Perhaps someone else has some better ideas.
