Second Time’s a CharmMarch 14, 2009 at 12:50 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments
Hello!! SO glad that it’s Friday! I went for another swim after work today and tomorrow I am going to attempt to run. My goal is to get through 3 miles pain free. I’m so nervous!! I am going to ease back into my running. For this week I plan on running only ever other day and I am hoping to do a run of 10 miles next weekend. Hopefully then I will be ready for the half marathon in 2 weeks. Gah I’m so nervous!!
Tonight I made my second attempt at baked tofu AND kale chips. I had tried both before and they did not turn out well. The tofu was rubbery and not tasty at all. When we made kale chips, we didn’t take the leaves off their thick stems (oops) and then they were salted too much (double oops). It was not so pleasant. I kind of felt like I was eating the ocean.
BUT tonight was a success! It’s the little things….
So I used the infamous Gliding Calm tofu as my inspiration! I put some honey, sesame oil, BBQ sauce and garlic pepper all over the slices of extra firm tofu. Then I roasted it in the oven at 425* for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
I also threw some kale in the oven for the last fifteen minutes – this time removed from stem, sprayed with olive oil and LIGHTLY sprinkled with salt. Perfecto!
Note the bite out of the first piece of tofu 🙂 I had to make sure it was blog worthy.
Lovely mountain of green crispy goodness!
And my night just kept getting better! James surprised me by buying some VitaTops VitaMuffins!! I have been eyeing these for months but couldn’t justify spending $5 on 4 little muffins. Yay for surprises!
I popped this baby in the toasted and the spread some TJ smooth unsalted PB on top.
Oh.my.gosh. This was HEAVENLY! I told James we were in trouble now..because I was going to have to get these again. Then he told me there are vita-brownies…oh it just keeps getting better!! Check out those oozey chocolate chips. It was like eating a piece of cake with peanut butter on top. I would use more words to describe that but I believe you all know how amazing that concept is 🙂
Now I am going watch Rachel Getting Married. I love Anne Hathaway and have heard great things about this move. Hopefully it lives up to the hype!
What’s your favorite food splurge?
I love going out for sushi! Thankfully we’ve learned how to make our own so I can have yummy sushi more often!
