Dad’s Foil Burger

I was very excited to try out a “new to me” flavor of Lemon Chobani yogurt for breakfast.  I normally eat my Chobani topped with granola but I wanted to enjoy the lemon flavor so I opted to consume it straight up.

I was a bit concerned when I opened the yogurt and saw little chunks all throughout the container.  People at work agreed that it did not look right.  It wasn’t expired so I didn’t know what was going on.  I opted not to eat it because I didn’t want to risk the chance of getting sick from eating bad yogurt 🙁

For those of you who have had the Lemon Chobani … Did you notice any little “chunks” in your yogurt?  Could it have been lemon rind?


I was in the mood for soup but didn’t want any of the canned variety so I headed to Freshii to “build my own soup”.  I decided on chicken broth with rice noodles, corn, celery and carrots.  I was surprised to see the huge container of soup I got for $5.99!

Delicious.  I absolutely love that I can create my own soup based on all the ingredients Freshii has to offer!

The soup kept me warm throughout the afternoon which was a good thing since Chicago got more snow.  Can you see the little doggie paw prints in the snow?


Patrick cooked us up a couple pizza rolls for us to split while dinner was in the oven.  These are the combination flavor which is peperoni and sausage.  My personal favorite.

I decided to do a play on a dish my dad used to grill when we would go camping in the summer.  It’s a really easy recipe and always tastes good.  He would wrap a hamburger patty loaded with veggies in foil and grill until the burger was done.

I just used the veggies we had on hand and it turned out really good.

Foil Burger

  • Hamburger
  • Worcestershire
  • Cayenne
  • White pepper
  • Salt
  • Onion (cut)
  • Potato (chopped)
  • Corn
  • Foil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grab a piece of foil large enough to wrap all the ingredients in.  Place the hamburger patty in the center of the foil.  Season with a couple shakes of worcestershire sauce, cayenne, white pepper and salt.  Place onion, corn and potatoes on top of hamburger and wrap foil so all ingredients are sealed in.  Place on cookie sheet in oven and cook for 30 – 50 minutes or until hamburger is completely cooked.


We had a repeat of yesterday with some Edy’s Touchdown Ice Cream.  So freakin’ good!


When was the last time you were disappointed by a meal?  What was it?

I was big time bummed about my yogurt this morning.  I was REALLY looking forward to eating that lemon yogurt.

  1. Before you get too saddened by your yoghurt experience, just think about this: in Australia, there is no such thing as Chobani, Fage, or Oikos yoghurt. And no Aussie equivalents, either. It makes me horribly miserable.

    There, now, don’t you feel better? 🙂

  2. hmm, I wonder if the lemon made it curdle? Either way, yuck. I remember one time at work I brought a packet of oatmeal for lunch and had been looking forward to it all day. Who knows why I was so excited for this packet of oatmeal, but I never got to eat it because the whole thing exploded all over the microwave. I was so bummed!

  3. hey girlie!

  6. im about to eat a lemon chobani now!!! yes this flavor does have lumps/chunks in it but ive had several of them, never gotten sick.. “knock on wood”. i think it’s because the acidic lemon makes it curdle, nothing to worry about. everyone i’ve opened has had little lumps in it.

  7. The lemon Chobani (as well as the blood orange) always have little chunks in it. I think it’s two fold: 1) the acidity in the lemon makes it curdle a bit, and 2) there is actual pulp in the yogurt as well.

    It’s still delicious and not bad for you in any way. 🙂
