Happy Friday night, everyone! Hopefully none of you are home reading this! I hope you’re out doing something fun (like i should be!)
Anyways, before going on what ended up being a 50 minute run, my mom came home a surprised me with a little mood-lifter- a tub of natural peanut butter!
I used it to make a quick pre-run snack:
The run went well and I ended with 25 minutes of abs.
- medicine ball twists
- leg lifts
- other random exercises
My brother and I made our way to the market for tonight’s dinner ingredients. Can I just say that I love supermarkets? I could honestly spend hours just looking at the products and thinking of things to make…
We made a large salad and Tofu Parmesan:
It was not vegan, however, all of the dairy ingredients can easily be changed for vegan! I haven’t gotten my family on the vegan cheese bandwagon…yet…
Tofu Parmesan (This is not my recipe. It was printed offline)
- 1 block tofu, soft or firm
- tomato sauce (we mixed it with a bag of steamed veggies)
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 5 Tbs. (vegan) parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- (vegan) mozzarella cheese
Step 1: mix the breadcrumbs, 2 Tbs parmesan cheese, oregano and salt and pepper in a small bowl.
My phone died before I could upload the picture.
Step 2: cut the tofu into 1/4 inch slices and dip each piece into a bowl of water and then into the breadcrumbs to evenly coat each piece.
Step 3: get your sauce ready. We used Ragu and included some steamed veggies.
Step 4: heat a medium sized skillet with a table spoon of olive oil. Brown the tofu slices on one side and then flip them. (some bread crumbs will come off-that’s fine)
Step 5: coat the bottom of a baking dish in sauce, layer the tofu on top, pour the rest of the sauce mixture. Then coat it with 3 Tbs. parmesan cheese, some mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of leftover bread crumbs.
Step 6: bake at 400* for 20 minutes and let it set for a few minutes.
Step 7: enjoy! Share it with friends and family…or eat it all yourself!
I tried a small bite and it was so good! My family loved it, even my mom…she isn’t completely sold on the totally meatless thing. We’ll get her there soon 😉
Anyways, I’m staying in tonight while my friends and my entire grade are at a party. The girl who is having a party has been holding a grudge against me for three years. I really just want to be friends with her, but she isn’t having it. Oh well, I tried, right?
Have a good night!!
- Do you know anyone who is holding a grudge against you over something small? How do you deal with it?
