Entrée 1 - Pureed Chickpea Pasta on soba noodles from Vive. This was delicious and so easy to put together.
Entrée 2 - baked tofu. Always great.
Side 1 - stirfried veggies: broccoli, carrots, sprouts, onions, red and green peppers, lots of ginger. (Somehow I let that d**n mandolin take a chunk off my right thumb knuckle. I also burned my right ring finger on the tray of baked tofu. Maybe I’m not supposed to work so hard on a Friday night.)
Side 2 - zucchini fries and herb dip. The fries are breaded with panko and cornmeal, and the dip is silken tofu with lemon juice and lots of spices and fresh herbs. The dip turned out really good.
How did Diann get her fries so uniform? She cheated! With this gadget…..
Put the veggie in, push down on the handle......
and out come the little slices!
I don’t use it that often because I actually love to chop. I’ve used it for sweet potato fries, but it honestly takes all my strength to get a piece of potato to go through that grate.
I did manage to get a quick shot of my plate.
I was worried that I was just throwing together a bunch of food, but it actually all went together nicely.
Dessert 1 - Peanut Butter Muffins from Peanut Butter Planet. These are not my normal healthy muffins. They have white flour (which you almost have to use for peanut butter, right?) brown sugar, pb, chocolate chips, and raisins. Oh, well. They were meant to be treats, not health food. Yum!
I just got sad thinking about my old trainer. I worked out on Mondays with him and would always take him a sample of treats I made on Sunday :(
Dessert 2 – I finally made Fronch Toast, on spelt bread with fresh strawberries, powdered sugar, and maple syrup for some of us. Personally, I would rather eat plain strawberries, but it was very good and a nice change of pace.
Chase is working at one of our outdoor festivals all weekend. He wanted to take his own food and since we didn’t leave much in the way of leftovers from this meal, he basically cleaned out my refrigerator. (Laura, I even gave him my leftover Refried Lentils! That was quite a sacrifice!) I did pick up a few things from the farmers market this morning, so I need to get cooking and restock!
