I think my legs have been oriented to Charlottesville’s hills – I had my best (read: easiest not necessarily fastest) run to date today.
We took Andrew 4.25 miles all through UVA, winding in and out of parents, futons, Greeters and SUVs. College orientation is so fun! I hope I can spend some time on the campus pretending I’m a student this fall 🙂
Karen had fun being the Queen of Summer on our porch – she loves to swing!
Once home, hydrated and showered, we assembled lunch.
Karen and Matt discovered Twin Oaks tofu on a trip this winter. It’s made at a co-op in central Virginia and it’s the best tofu I’ve ever had!
It’s firm and dry (no pressing needed to get a great sauté) and this flavor – Italian Herb – had all kinds of wonderful seasonings embedded IN the tofu – something you can’t really do at home unless you make your own.
We seared some up in Garlic Gold (walk away and let them brown!)
Also on our salads, Caromont Farm smoked goat cheese from the farmer’s market.
All I gotta say is ….oh my word. Paprika and spices, it was incredible.
Combined with avocado, squash, green pepper and spinach dressed in Garlic Gold
On the side, Great Harvest Cinnamon Raisin Walnut drizzled in honey
For dessert, we polished off the Gail Ambrosias. The Cinnamon Cayenne was my fav!!
