Blog Recipe Night

I got home from physical therapy last night around 7, starving and exhausted. I didn’t want to eat any of the leftovers in the fridge (most of which weren’t Claire-friendly anyway). I had sprouted TJ’s tofu and had purchased rice noodles earlier in the week, so I figured it was as good a time as any to try Iowa Girls Eats’s Thai Peanut Noodles that Kristin had linked to earlier this week. Of course I changed a few things – added garlic powder, used lemon juice instead of water, no chicken or egg, and different veggies (just whatever I had on hand).
I broiled my tofu (1 of the packages from the 2 pack) with some of the sauce from her recipe.
Stir-fried the veggies with sesame oil and cooking spray:
The cooked rice noodles freaked me out — too much like jellyfish tentacles!
Tossed it all together….
Totally worth the 20 minutes of prep that this dish took!
Dessert? Homemade granola, based on Julie’s recipe, with Courtney’s genius idea of the sunflower seed butter (because I like it but not on its own and didn’t feel bad using it up), and subbing sugar free maple syrup for the honey.
Didn’t get as many clusters as I’d hoped – but the ones that did turn out didn’t last long!
Still craving something cool and creamy, I turned 1/2 a frozen banana + 1/2 cup of pitted cherries + almond milk + stevia into a simple smoothie.
It was almost overly sweet – and I have an extremely high sweet tolerance! 😉
I still STINK at blogging this week – my Google Reader now simply reads 1000+ – but I will be catching up! And I get to guest post for my girl Jessica while she’s on vacation, which I’m excited about!
Happy weekend all!
