So I had a crappy day yesterday and forgot to post Tuesdays dinner
bad Kelsey!
I know
I'm sorry

But I am going to post it today along with todays dinner so don't worry!

So on the menu for Tuesday we have

Teriyaki tofu with rice noodles and veggies
and for desert Saki fruit salad!

shopping list:
1 package of rice noodles (I like the fettuccine style that are flat)
snow peas
shredded carrots
1 green onion
1 package of firm tofu
fresh mixed berries (Shaw's normally has like fruit cup sized packs of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, that will be enough)
1 bottle of Saki (or plum Saki)

things you should have at home:
teriyaki sauce
minced garlic
sesame seeds
soy sauce
vegetable oil or peanut oil

Start by draining your tofu really well! Cut the tofu into slices about 1/2 inch thick, then smother it with teriyaki sauce and let sit for a few minutes wile you start the noodles. Boil about half the package of noodles according to the package instructions. drain the noodles and get 2 medium frying pans, one for noodles and one for tofu (if you want to use less dishes cook tofu first and put it in a warm oven and re use the same pan for the noodles). Place tofu in a lightly oiled pan over medium heat (if you have peanut oil it add a nice flavor to the dish if not vegetable oil will work). Cook tofu until the sauce becomes a little crispy about 3 minutes on each side. After draining the noodles rinse them with cold cold water, and let then sit in the strainer for a minute, in the other pan over medium heat saute the chopped green onion (leave about 2 tbs for garnish), 1 tsp of minced garlic in 3 tbs of oil for 3 or 4 minutes then add the noodles snow peas and carrots. Stir the noodles with everything in the pan and add about 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce, stirring constantly cook for another 4 to 5 minutes when everything is done plate it, sprinkling everything with sesame seeds and the noodles with chopped green onion!

Enjoy your dinner! Desert is super easy, fill a 3 oz juice glass or cocktail glass 3/4 of the way with mixed berries and then fill the rest with Saki at room temp.

I normally cook 2 pieces of tofu per person and put the rest in a baggie in the fridge, for another night or smoothies or something, you can buy small packs of tofu depending on the selection your local store has. My boy isn't big on tofu but once in a while it's a good meet free dinner that he doesn't complain too much about, I think mostly however to avoid my "benefits of soy products" lecture. HA!
