    *big hugs* Sorry it’s still rough for you. I wish I could wave a magic chocolate wand and make it all better. I think you should share the tofu concoction. I would definitely eat that!

    I hear you on the dinner front! It’s only the fact that The Sparky has a physically exerting job that makes me/us ensure something more than vegemite on english muffin gets eaten most nights!

    A – the size of the universe makes me nauseous if I think about it too much …

  3. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Sometimes, sprinkles are just what one needs, far more than elaborate dinners or new recipes or dishes that need washing up. Actually, always more than dishes that need washing up. My heart hurts for you still, but I feel a little better knowing you have yoghurt and sprinkles and coconut. Keep them up 🙂 And let me know if there is anything I can do xox

    (Also, I don’t think Chobani is in WA yet! I can’t find it anywhere, Woolworths included.)

    Sorry you are still suffering so, good to know that you at least have some good yoghurt to keep you company. Your tofu snack sounds like a very intriguing mix of flavours, you should make it for me if we ever meet. 😀

    Bituminous! A word that is not well-known here, but makes me smile every time I hear it:)

    I’ve been eating a lot of peanut butter, sunflower seeds and honey on toast. Each spread in a delightfully thick layer resulting in about a 1 pound snack. SERIOUS SNACKING.

    Just like that serious salad, man that thing looks large!

    I freak out about existential issues all the time, and then feel dizzy, but they’re so far from cheery that I’d rather not mention them, because then I’d feel the dizzy, and have to go outside, and look at every newly-sprouted plant in my yard to calm myself down. I could also chant bituminous to myself. Hmm. Emma out.

    I think the spinkle/coconut yogurt recipe is genius. 🙂

    I get flustered as soon as I get out of bed.. sometimes I have to smack myself in the face to try to focus… *sigh*… life’s too hard as it is, let’s be a bit lighter on ourselves eh? Easier said than done 🙂

    yep – love the colours of sprinkles and love the texture of coconut so though it seems crazy I might just love this – sorry to hear life is being tough on you – some days existence makes me sigh – probably just tiredness with me though!

  9. Sarah

    Maybe you need some time to wallow in your sadness? It’s an okay thing to do.

  10. juniakk @ mis pensamientos

    mmm i do that all the time, get a spoon and a jar of nut/seed butter and eat my heart away. it does make me feel better for the moment, but my stomach tells me that it isn’t happy, so i must stop this emotional eating. i go through many spurts of pondering my life too – lately it’s been pretty frequent, so i know what you are going through. chobani rocks. i love that stuff. and i also love the idea of tahini with tofu! yum. i read recently how tahini is the unroasted version while sesame paste is the roasted version!

    You are as usual ingenius! This yoghurt is so delicious and with sprinkles, who can ever complain 😀

    Sounds to me like you need a big hug, brought to you by Leah, Little G and Chucky. What better way to make you smile, at least for a moment.
    Anxiety and I go way back Hannah. If you ever need to chat please feel free to vent with me.

  13. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Um, your tofu-tahini concoction sounds kind of amazing.

    To your question: yes. Yes I do. Especially when pondering quantum physics. It’s mentally delicious.

  14. Hotly Spiced

    Sprinkles are very cheery and they can definitely provide a lift to a bowl of very plain looking yoghurt as well as a lift to the heart-broken soul stirring them in! Better days are coming! xx

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe so how is the yogurt with the peanut butter? 😛 And I’m relieved to see the jar of PB come out because otherwise I would have really wondered what was wrong 😛

  16. New Epicurean

    My grown-up brain says I should be scared of sprinkles in yogurt, but the rest of me really, really wants to try this now.

    I am quite impressed with the Chobani yogurts, though I am still annoyed by the idea of importing fresh food. I overcome my irritation if I see Chobani on special, mind.

    You can get Bounce balls at Woolworths. The peanut version is exceedingly good. I keep them in my locker at university for emergencies.

    I really wish, every now and then, that I could get away with having something like cold tofu & condiments for dinner. Some days when you’re tired in the head, it isn’t just laziness that makes those foods appealing, but something about them is actually really delicious. But with two people, it’s not really an option unless I’m home alone!

    I was discussing sprinkles with friends on Friday night (as you do after a wine or 5). Were yours hundreds and thousands? They seem to be quite hard to track down these days, but are the only acceptable topping for fairy bread as far as I am concerned. Those little rectangle long ones just aren’t the same.
    Chobani sent me a pack of their flavoured yoghurt. I found it a little too acidic for my liking.

    Love your blog – so heartfelt, hilarious and expressive..
    Definitely sharing the love for the tofu/nooch/ tahini/ sambal olek combo. I’d probably go for lentils/ kale/ broccoli/ avocado/ nori topped by several tonnes or litres of nooch and hot sauce.. I could tip whole bags of nooch down my throat in one go. Oh dear, what an admission..

    I am so jealous. Over in the UK we can only buy this delight in 100g tubs. Sad as I am I got a big thrill recently from being able to buy 6 of these a month on Amazon’s subscribe and save deals.. It’s nice to be so easily pleased by the small things in life (though a lack of nooch can hardly be described as small…).

    Do you write professionally, Hannah? You really should. You write with such poignancy and a flair for the small details that make up life, and your bubbly character really shines through your words. (Being English, I am now hoping that I have not embarrassed you too much with my comments. Forgive me!)

    Looking forward to part 2 of your inadvertent family lunch piss up!

    I hate to admit it but I am intrigued by the yoghurt, coconut, sprinkles concoction. I would have to wait until the boys were out of the house, I can see them going crazy- and not in the good way. I am equally intrigued and repulsed by the notion of the peanut butter, white chocolate. I really don’t like pb and chocolate as you know. I would try this I think- although I suspect it might be like the time I bought some balsamic vinegar and sea salt chips because that sounded nice- bit into the first one and went “bah, it’s only salt and vinegar! But the backwards fancy name fooled me anyway!”. Somewhere you asked me about sources for Zotter chocolates- I can’t find where that was to reply in a sensible way- so let me tell you here that if you hang about in fancy providores in Pott’s Point you can find all manner of things.

  24. Oatmeal Cherry Yoghurt Cookies with Cacao Nibs - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] Chobani folk sent me as filling work snacks (I’ve gone wild this past week, adding not just sprinkles and coconut but poppy seeds too), I made sure to save a few tubs to bake […]
