Hey guys! I hope you are all enjoying your Friday evening.
I had a very long day at work today, and I’m not really feeling 100%. I’m not sure if it is stress or actually just feeling a bit under the weather. Needless to say, after this post, I am going to lay on the couch and completely veg out :).
Mike is at an alumni event for his fraternity tonight, so I was all by myself for dinner. Fine by me, because that means tofu! Guys, I think I seriously perfected my tofu skills. I now know that I wasn’t cooking the tofu properly at all before. Don’t get my wrong, the two times I’ve made tofu in the past few weeks, it was good. But this time it was dammmmn good.
Ohhh yea. Look at how crispy the outside is. So what did I do you ask in order to get the tofu so perfect?
I mixed up a rub of one tablespoon oil, maple syrup and ‘Suicidal Buffalo Wing Sauce’. This sauce definitely makes your eyes water, but I loved the spicy/sweet combo that was going on. I baked the tofu at 400 degrees for 15 minutes on each side.
Along side, I had some cajun sweet potato fries with ketchup and a jazzed up mayo. I added some pesto and parmesan cheese to the mayo and mixed it all together. A spin on an aioli, which is often served with sweet potato fries.
Lastly, some calcium in the form of blueberry yogurt.
I’m on a cereal kick lately as late night snack, so I will most likely have a small bowl before bed. I may just have a small glass of red wine to help me come down from the long and blood pressure raising work day.
If I am feeling better, I’m going to hit the gym for a run in the morning. I am also going to check out the new fall class schedule. I heard that new classes start tomorrow. Yippppie!
Do you try to maintain your eating habits on the weekend, or do you give yourself a little bit more freedom to splurge?
I always give myself a little wiggle room on the weekend to enjoy a few of the more ‘indulgent’ foods out there. To me, it is a time where I am mostly with friends, family and Mike. Food to me is something that should be shared and should be an experience, so I would rather loosen my belt a bit and have good food and wine to make my weekend even more enjoyable. Cheers!
