Tofu Fun

The other day I bought some marinated tofu at the Farmers’ Market for an easy dinner. I sautéed some onions, garlic, mini sweet peppers, mushrooms, carrots, & celery for a few minutes and then added the tofu until it was heated through. I seasoned the stir fry with just a bit of low sodium soy sauce, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. I served the tofu over brown rice.

The toddler was busy “sorting” his food: tofu in one bowl, everything else in another.

And then he swirled the pepper rings around his fingers.

After he was done exploring his food a bit, he finished every last bite and had another bowl (which he sorted again…).

Well, this is a short week, so I’m not planning a lot of meals:

Tuesday: Garlic pasta with creamy mushroom sauce & a salad.

Wednesday: Kabocha soup.

Questions: What are your strategies to keep Thanksgiving healthy? What’s your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal? I like mashed potatoes, gravy, & stuffing. And, you haven’t forgotten about the flossing, have you?

Be well,
