All about food.

I leaned in the meantime that tofu must be marinated in watery things, but not in oil. Oil prevents the tofu from absorbing the spices. So I'll find some sauces or whatever - there was nothing in the fridge...
Fried the left-over tofu and put it in a beetroot salad. Very nice!
Chris, even though I'm not into tofu, your recipe does sound good.
Daniel's stir fry meal with soy sauce gives me a plan for tomorrow's supper. (Tonight's is already set--cooked pasta over a tomato based mixture.)
I'm not much of a cook but I started marinating tofu, in a little water, garlic, soy sauce and some left-over vindaloo paste. That was rather good. Any ideas about this are welcome!
Tonight we had stir fry with tomatoes, red bell and mildly hot peppers, onion, garlic, and two pods of okra so far. stir fried, mixed with scrambled eggs, and topped onto rice. Nice spicy meal.
I started tomorrow's sourdough starter. This one is another attempt at whole-wheat sourdough. I let the last attempt go too long, and it turned into a log the consistency of wood. Then I made a loaf with unbleached white bread flour to rebuild my confidence.
Randy, I'm not aiming to lose weight, and kind of nonplussed that I have. It's not return of cancer - the last scan was still NED (No Evidence of Disease). Just loss of that workplace situation, cortisol stress response, and the good fortune to like gardening and cooking. I would be happy to get to my pre-medical school weight, and we're not far from it.
Oh wow, peach pie! I DO have a peach tree with lots of fruit. Almost ripe. There's a thought!
I bet there are apricots in the store. Apricot pie is heaven!
Watch out, Daniel--you're gonna get as thin as I am! And if you continue to eat "out of the garden", you shouldn't gain weight in the winter. Freezer foods (or canned) and root veggies should replace store bought items. Next year, you must grow sweet potatoes.
I can't remember what kind of peach tree I planted years ago, but the peaches made a marvelous pie!
Daniel, thanks so much for posting the Michael Pollan vid. I was not familiar with him, and he's an amazing guy. It was very encouraging since we cook all our meals and haven't eaten fast food for 30 some years. I immediately ordered his book Food Rules. One thing he said that really struck me was this:
Quick + Easy Meal From The Yard
From Abundant Permaculture A nice meal for a busy family
Pollan is "The Man". My SIL worships him.
