Happy Monday to you!
I woke up to another snow blower alarm clock this morning at 5am – we got some of the white stuff overnight! Not a ton, mind you, my neighbor just feels the need to snow blow his driveway after the accumulation of 4 flakes. No lie. Hmmm…
Here’s what we’ve got goin’ on for the rest of the week…semi bleak…
Someone that lives in the South – spin me some tales of warmer weather where you live!!!!!!
Made the same way as usual, except I used unsweetened vanilla almond breeze instead of skim milk, and nixed the butter in the topping. Just almonds and ~1/2 teaspoon of brown sugahhhhh.
Baked at 375 degrees for ~18 minutes (almond and sugar toppings added half way through) cooled, refrigerated and reheated for this mornings gloooorious breakfast! Who needs warm weather when you’ve got pumpkin pie oatmeal for breakfast? What’s your favorite “make ahead” breakfast?
Last night I also whipped up a lunch I am SO excited for – Baked Tofu, Rice & Roasted Veggies. omg.
All I did was cube up some extra firm tofu, and marinated the cubes for literally 1 minute in:
- soy sauce
- garlic powder
- sesame oil
I laid my cubes out on a non-stick sprayed, foil lined baking sheet, and baked for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
Firm, chewy and with a perfect crust on the bottom. YUM-E.
For lunch today, I added my tofu to some brown rice (to which I added some of the tofu marinade while it was cooking) and roasted chicken and veggies from Friday night.
I snuck some tofu cubes last night – SO GOOD! It’s amazing how one minute in a marinade is really all it takes to totally flavor tofu. Plus the marinade in the rice was bomb – no extra sauce needed after it was done!
For freshness, I’m packing a rather unfortunate looking Pink Lady apple. She’s got bumps galore – but I can look past it and see the true beauty inside.
I am praying that I will be game for it least a light workout tonight – we’re talking walking on the treadmill and some light weight lifting. Physically I feel fine, I just get short of breath even walking up the stairs and my nose and cough don’t seem to want to quit. Ay dios mio.
On that note, and after hearing the cold wind whipping outside, I do believe it’s a Starbucks kind of morning. A no foam skinny vanilla latte kind of morning, to be specific. Happy Monday!
What’s your coffee shop drink?
