No tofu fo me. Can you guess what I had for dinner last night? 😉

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! 😀
