joy in the little things...

...like finally finding Fage Greek yogurt in Zurich. Since I cook almost every night I have been scoping out all of the grocery stores in an effort to find the nicest/most reasonable shopping experience. After almost three weeks I had yet to find Fage yogurt, until yesterday when I went to the fancy Globus market. There are two major grocery store chains here, Coop and Migros, and I have settled on a Coop store located in the basement of their main department store on Bahnhofstrasse - imagine Target arranged vertically into five floors and having a full fledge grocery store in the basement. Full-fledge is a bit of an exaggeration since there is absolutely no comparison between US stores and Swiss stores. I've also found there is no comparison between US appliances and my teeny weeny cute-as-a-button Swiss appliances. Anyway I figured I am living in the land of dairy and there had to be at least one grocery store that had what I was looking for, and I was right - the exact grocery store I have been avoiding because it is known for being super expensive. C'est la vie.
