I came home to a surprise package sticking out of my mailbox today – from the Peanut Butter Boy!!! I mailed him a jar of EarthFare PB to review a few weeks ago and he thanked me with a jar of a BUTTER TOFFEE PB!!
Of course I tasted it immediately (luckily I was ready for a snack too )
Followed by the official snack on some new homemade bread, plus a swig of hemp milk.
I was really hungry from 4-6 today. While my snack ranked high in taste, it was low in hunger satiety. I really need wet heavy things like yogurt, cereal, fruit for afternoon snack and this was so light in weight (but way more calorie dense than you’d ever think!). I was planning to try my Coconut LaraBar today but totally forgot when I walked in the door!! The suspense is killing me, but since I only have one I want to savor it when it’s a perfect LaraBar occasion.
Surprisingly Delicious Dinner
The husband brought home a surprise 24 oz beer tonight – I had a Hers version
Dinner tonight was a “use of the fridge” experiment that turned out fabulous!!
I cut up our block of TJ’s tofu and marinated it in a BBQ-sauce-like mixture of:
- Apple cider vinegar (1/4 cup?)
- 4 dashes Worcestershire
- Sprinkle garlic powder, red pepper flakes, S+P
- 2-3 tbsp ketchup
Baked at 425 for 40 minutes = perfection!
We served the tofu over a pile of frozen/thawed pineapple polenta I made a while back (mystery recipe anyone!?). The sweet/savory combo was awesome. Plus some sauteed CSA beans and lastly, some chewy feta cheese.
I don’t watch many TV shows, but the husband got us hooked on The Office last spring and I think it’s hilarious. Exactly my sense of humor. I thought it was on at 8 tonight and was all excited about watching it until I found out it’s at 9, which will be too late for my early AM cycle class bedtime Guess I’ll have to watch it tomorrow.
This weekend is Davidson Homecoming. None of our friends are coming this year, but my sister is flying in from Boston tomorrow and I’ll be picking her up at the airport around lunchtime, then we’re heading uptown for a night out tomorrow. Saturday will be spent up at Davidson (tailgate, football, oyster roast @ SAE), and on Sunday my parents are driving down for a lunch with all of us. It’s a big weekend and I wish I’d gotten more studying done today! And I REALLY wish there wasn’t rain in the forecast!!!
