Ridiculously Good

by Courtney on February 16, 2013

Howdy, howdy! Happy Saturday!

Did everyone have an awesome Friday night? I know we sure did…partially, thanks to this delicious meal.


Both Jay and I had some things to do after work yesterday, but we planned ahead to have him pick up some dinner for us on his way home. Our timing worked out pretty perfectly, both getting in around the same time, so we dug right into our sandwiches.

These lovely things came courtesy of Terry’s Kitchen, a big time favorite of ours. I ordered the Capri Primavera sandwich, once again, with some of their balsamic mayo on the side. Deeeeeelish.


Jay also picked up some of their macaroni salad, per my request. Winking smile


I just can’t help it…the stuff is ridiculously good.

Yesterday I also came home to a very fun shipment from my friends at Chobani.

The new banana and pear flavors! Woooo Hoooo!

Of course, I had to try one ASAP, so I tried out the banana flavor in this morning’s yogurt bowl breakfast.


Now I’m gonna be honest with you guys…typically, banana flavored things are NOT my thing. I love bananas, but the flavor of banana usually grosses me out. So I figured hey, if I try it at home and don’t like it, I’ll just go for another one. BUT…

The banana flavor is SOOOOO good!


I paired it with some strawberries, raspberries, and cereal (Special K, I think?) and I was good to go.

Speaking of good to go…I’ve got to get goin’! I have a mani/pedi date with my gal Kelsey this morning. Smile

Too funny, I JUST saw both the pear and banana Chobani’s at the store yesterday and got all excited. I usually don’t like banana either, so I got the pear. Have yet to try it. Happy Saturday!

That sandwich looks so good! I’ve been hearing about the new flavors but haven’t found them yet! I bet the pear is awesome!

Have a great weekend!

I love the new banana flavor! It’s quickly become one of my favorites. The pear is really good as well.

I feel the same exact way with banana flavored things, so I was a little hesitant with the banana Chobani too. Like you, I loved it though!!! It didn’t taste artificial at all which is why it sold me I think.

That sandwich looks so good!! It reminds me of the mediterranean veggie sandwich from Panera, which I’m craving now ;)

Sounds fun! I normally just stick to Oikos, but I really want to try Chobani. From all the raves I hear about it, it sounds wonderful!


10 Elizabeth @ My Neon Running Shoes February 16, 2013 at 10:12 am

Please let us know how the pear is also! I have been loving the champagne pear dressing from TJ and pears in general, so I’m definitely interested to see how it it :-)

11 Nicole @ Fruit 'N' Fitness February 16, 2013 at 10:23 am

I agree with you on the fake banana flavoring, I hate it! Loved Chobani’s new banana… I actually think I liked it more than the pear. Hope you have a good weekend! p.s. banana Chobani is great in banana oatmeal choc chip cookies :) Cookies freeze well so you could store them while your on vacation too!

Awww mani pedi dates are the best! I’m a sucker for good bread and the bread on that sandwich looks absolutely amazing. Have a great weekend!

I loved the pear flavor, but I actually wasn’t a huge banana fan. I like bananas but I felt like I could barely taste the flavor! Haha I wanted MORE banana!

It’s funny – I love bananas (one of my favorite fruits), but I’m like you and am not a huge banana-flavor fan. If these get your stamp of approval, though, I think I may need to try ‘em out :)

That sandwich looks awesome! Deli style sandwiches are definitely something that I’ve been missing and I had a huge craving for a turkey sandwich from Panera the other day- I guess it will just have to wait a few more months! ;) I need a mani/pedi in a bad way but I always feel like I should save it for a special occasion and yet one never seems to come up. I guess I should just go for it!

Wow, nothing sounds better than a delicious chewy sandwich right now! The bread is so key!
Glad you had a great start to the weekend. Hoping the rest of it is wonderful for you hun!


18 theresa @ aspoonfulofsunshine February 16, 2013 at 11:46 am

I usually shy away from banana flavored things too, so I have tried some of Chobani’s other flavors, but not this one yet. I’m glad to hear that is gets the approval from another banana skeptic!

P.S. your sandwich looks killer!

I’ve seen a lot of posts lately about this banana yogurt and I think I’m gonna have to try it! I love bananas in the first place though. I desperately need both a manicure and pedicure, so have fun!


21 Ashley @ Life and Fitness February 16, 2013 at 12:16 pm

I’m not a big fan of banana either so I might just have to try this one. The apple cinnamon Chobani are my favorite. SOOOOO good.

That is one tasty looking sandwich! I absolutely love sandwiches served on chiabatta bread. Yum!

I just recently saw the banana Chobani flavor in the grocery store last weekend and was awfully curious about it…I am glad to hear that it is good!

The new Cho flavors are huge hits in our house – the pear is tasty [but reminds me a bit of the apple cinnamon, not a bad thing since I like that one too, just nothing too new] and the banana is fabulous! But really, I cannot stop eating the Cho Bites [especially the coffee chocolate chip] – YUM!

I wish I could find those flavors of Chobani at my grocery store – they still don’t even carry the chocolate chunk. Do you know if you can order online?

Love getting things in the mail! I am very jealous of your fresh looking berries. I live on Vancouver Island and sadly live on frozen berries for the winter months, they’re still good but nothing like fresh berries.

That sandwich looks SOOOOOOO good. Seriously – salivating over here!!!


32 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More February 16, 2013 at 8:51 pm

I am LOVING the new Chobani flavors! I’m thinking I may need to pick up some other flavors so I don’t burn out on Pear & banana as I still have several left in my fridge but they’re honestly so freaking delicious!!


33 Katie @ SKinny MInnie Moves February 16, 2013 at 10:05 pm

I agree on the banana thing. I love bananas but anything flavored with it tastes too artificial! That sandwich looks yummy, especially the pickle!


34 Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health February 16, 2013 at 11:23 pm

I just had the pear chobani yesterday morning and it was really good! I can’t wait to try the banana…

I need a Mani/ pedi so bad. Sounds relaxing! I’m not a banana flavored kind of person but I do love pear which I need to try. I just got some of the chobani bites yesterday!


36 Sara@fitcupcaker February 17, 2013 at 8:27 am

Is it a fake banana flavored yogurt or pretty natural?

The new pear flavor is easily one of my favorites. its so good!
