Do you smell any testosterone?
Just womanly smells of perfume, potpourri, and Aveda candle!
Karen and I had a dinner party tonight without Matt, who is still playing cowboy up in Montana. [It’s almost scary to think about how many miles separate us!]
We cracked open some merlot for the occasion
And dined on a Tofu Parm with Quinoa and Kale
Karen brought over the tofu, which was inspired by this recipe: Tofu Parmigiana.
She pan-fried some sliced Twin Oaks tofu that was dredged in egg and herby panko bread crumbs. Then she layered it with tomato sauce, mushrooms and mozzarella and baked it at 400* for 25 minutes until the cheese started to brown. Serves 4. It was delicious!!
I made the kale by lightly steaming it and tossing in soy sauce, salt, Worcestershire and garlic gold. It was a wee bit salty though. Red quinoa was cooked plain and served under the parm.
We’re about to watch Eat, Pray, Love and sip minty Numi tea!
When I was in college, I read all of Lavyrle Spencer romance novels. Cheesy or not, they were fabulous. Having been inspired by Montana, A River Runs Through It, and Legends of the Fall, I’m itching to read a Western romance again. Do you guys have any recommendations for fabulously written ones? [Is there such a thing!?].
Or just a good cheeseball. Because a good romance is a good romance.
