How are we this fine Tuesday morning? I’m not doing too shabby! A little behind schedule, due to some laziness of last night, but you’ll have that every once in a while, right? That’s OK, though, because I’m counteracting my rushedness with a nice, relaxing cup of French Pressed Kona coffee from Fresh Market:
Ain’t nuttin’ better
Ah Tuesday. I’m pretty jealous of Shane today – he’s taking some time off to get some things done around the house. I wish I had today off! However…I’m not jealous of the 60+ hours he worked last week…ick! At least he’ll be home to tend to the animal children!
Last night after I posted, I got three loads of laundry done, cleaned the downstairs bathroom, and then got to making a his-and-hers dinner for the hubski and myself. If you presumed I made tofu for dinner last night, you presumed right.
Luckily, the meal consisted of three parts:
- baked tofu (hers) and baked chicken (his)
- roasted acorn squash
- fresh vegetable medley (alll mine)
Then things got a little saucy. Barbeque was the sauce of the night.
Annie’s Barbeque to be exact.
Into the hot box went the seasoned tofu, seasoned chicken, and squash.
I wasn’t quite sure how everything would cook in there all at the same time, so after about 20 minutes passed, I took the squash out and finished it off by nuking it into the microwave for a couple minutes. I think this was a great idea because the tofu turned out to be baked just perfectly.
I think. Does tofu taste like crap when baked perfectly?
Is tofu an acquired taste? Am I just a bad vegetarian? hehe
After the squash was done, I served it with a little butter and brown sugar, per usual.
And per usual, it was filled with deliciousness
And lastly, I peeled some zucchini, carrots, and cut up a tomato for a refreshing salad in olive oil and vinegar.
The veggies were the star of my show, man!
I definitely went back for seconds of these bad boys. Good thing Shane hates zucchini, carrots, and tomatos
All in all, it was a great meal – but the tofu left something to be desired. Perhaps I’ll try it again in a different recipe. I love it in the dips I’ve made, but I just can’t force myself to chew it up like a piece of chicken. I guess it’ might be like Quinoa for me. Although, I have to admit, I bought some more this weekend. I’m just not ready to admit to myself that I just don’t like it!
After some studying and One Tree Hill watching, dessert was in order.
See that cute little pilgrim boy (girl?) ?
Well, that just wasn’t any chocolate pilgrim boy, oh no. That buddy was filled with none other than…pumpkin pie filling! It’s OK to be jealous He, along with the other chocolates on my plate, were bought from the cute little chocolate shoppe in Oak Park on Saturday.
Well everyone, have a wonderful Tuesday, and come back after work for an Educational Exercise post!
