My second post for a chance for myself (and for you by clicking here!) to win a trip to Greece also incorporates some more yummy Fage Greek yogurt. I love this recipe because it reminds me exactly of some "good living" in my past. Growing up, Thanksgiving at my house, at times, had to revolve around my performances in The Nutcracker. I knew I couldn't eat a ton because then I would have to go and perform. However, I always enjoyed the side potato dishes so much that I had to have seconds! When I look back to my childhood, I realize I've been on this great ride of trying to bring "good living" to my life. Even though I had to perform on those days I never deprived myself of a little second helping. I may never have been the skinniest ballerina in the Nutcracker but I sure was a happy one!
Now that I'm older, I've even more conscious of what I put into my body. Those recipes that are healthier recreations of classic recipes always catch my eye. Thanks to one of my favorite magazines, Cooking Light has come to the rescue again! They recreated this popular dish but made it a bit healthier so you can go back for seconds! The original recipe was made with canned soup, sour cream, and potato chips. Wow, a lot of not very healthy things...........BUT: In this recipe the Greek yogurt gets a standing ovation because it has the perfect starring role in replacing that unhealthy sour cream!

I only got one picture of this dish and now it's already been eaten! While most of you already probably have your Thanksgiving menus down, this is a great dish to make for potlucks and other holidays! In fact, I'm already planning to make this one again very soon.....and I'll be sure to have seconds!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!!
