Yum. I'm not a macaroni salad fan, but I am a chicken salad fan, and made the same discovery you did: yoghurt is so much better than mayo. (We also use yoghurt instead of sour cream on our tacos, and baked potatoes.)

That stuffing is the stuffing I grew up with, and she's not exaggerating; blood has been shed in our household over that stuffing. One year there was an entire family revolt when mom tried to sneak the giblets into it and we discovered them before dinner started. And she's also correct about the sweet potatoes. My favourite part of Thanksgiving is a bowl of that stuffing mixed with the baked sweet potatoes. Heaven. Since moving to a country that's never heard of Jimmy Dean or Pepperidge Farm, I've had to improvise, but I've figured out how to make it all from scratch. It's a massive project, but oh, so worth it. :)

Those mints are fabulous!

Same here actually. I prefer yoghurt to mayo, too. I do prefer sour cream where it calls for it but... I'm more likely to have yoghurt at home when inspiration might strike and it is a perfectly fine substitute. I also use yoghurt to make my own salad dressing - way cheaper and way tastier than dressing out of a bottle. (And I'm likely to use up the yoghurt for other stuff, too, so I won't have to remember how long it has been in the fridge.)

I like sour cream myself, but MT doesn't, and now I'm so used to the yoghurt I don't bother with my own tub of sour cream. I actually used yoghurt on toast the other day, as a layer underneath my fig jam. It worked! :)
Sweet potatoes are a hill I would die on. Stuffing I could take or leave but the bf is obsessed. Making it from scratch wouldn't be happening for me, you deserve a medal.

It's simply a measure of my own obsession for stuffing. No medal, but if we could bottle self-restraint and serve it with the wine, that would be good. :)
