Hello, hello readers! This post is filled with cuteness, but hopefully, the heart of a winner. I haven’t gotten as much done today as I would like, but I took a 3hour nap with the bear and am feeling very refreshed.
After my nap (and some school work!!!) I made myself a fiji apple with sunflower seed butter and some raisins.
I also might have eaten 3Triscuits and 1Newman’s O off of A’s lunch plate.
For my real lunch, I made my BSI entry. This week’s contest is strawberry, hosted by Hey What’s For Dinner Mom? I’m a huge fan of the savory/sweet combo, so as soon as I read strawberries I knew I’d be doing something savory. My final idea? The Strawberry Club.
I started by taking the 1/2 block of firm tofu leftover from yesterday out of the freezer. You could just drain and press your tofu, but I do think that the freeze helped the texture for a quick cook. After preheating the oven to 450*, foil/spraying a baking sheet, and cutting my slightly defrosted tofu into 4 slices and giving them a quick sprinkle of salt, I was ready. I slathered it was strawberry jelly (specifically the homemade jelly from my m-i-l). Then I stuck it in the oven for 20minutes. Once my beauties were out I placed them on some Ezequiel bread.
Then I topped them with a slice of veggie cheese and 2 slices of fakin’ bacon.
Finally I gave my sammie a quick nuke in the microwave to make the “cheese” all melty.
Perfection! It had the perfect balance of flavors that I like, and was filling without being heavy. I used “fake” bacon and cheese because of the vegan challenge, but this would be just as good with “real” bacon and cheese.
It’s almost 4, so I’ve got to run. I would like to get my nails done (my fingers are so ugly right now I’m almost embarrassed to meet new people, straightening the bookshelves is not pretty work), and A and I are going to walk around the city a bit before I go to the blogger meet up. See you for a fun-filled post this PM!
Do you like savory/sweet, or does the combo make you gag? My favorite combo seems to be turkey bacon and maple syrup. Which do you prefer, savory or sweet?
