Fun with yogurt day

Yesterday I spent mostly reading. Today, since it was relatively cool (~86°F) in my apartment, I ventured out of my living room to experiment with some cooking. I keep meaning to try out new recipes, but for most of my vacation period it's either too hot or too cold to spend any amount of time in the kitchen, and most of the rest of the time I'm working and too tired to experiment.

First, I tried a recipe for fruity frozen yogurt that was distributed at my supermarket.
4 T jam
2 T sugar
1 T lemon juice
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup cream

Mix all ingredients together until smooth, pour into an ice cube tray, and freeze.

I had some yogurt left over after this, so I decided to try something else. On the Itou-ke show, it suggested mixing together two parts yogurt with one part miso paste. If you put vegetable slices into this mixture, cover, and leave it in the refrigerator for a day, supposedly the vegetables turn into Japanese-style pickles. (I haven't tried it, so I don't know how well it works.) It's also supposed to be a good sauce for cooked vegetables (or meat, if you're into that kind of thing).

So, I fried up a batch of potatoes, mushrooms, and onions, and put the yogurt/miso mix over it. I added a bit of pepper to give it some kick. It tasted kind of vaguely tangy, not bad at all. In fact, it tasted almost as if I had thrown some tomato into the mix. I kind of felt like I was eating pizza, without the crust.

And I still have yogurt left...what to do...
