Popped My Tofu Cherry

I did it! I cooked with tofu for the first time.  I don't know why it scared me so much before, because I'm weird.  I purchased the extra firm tofu and planned to use it in a coconut curry.  First I cut up the tofu and cooked it on the stovetop so it would be nice and crispy on the outside.

Then I cooked the remainder of my meal following the recipe for my Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp just replacing the shrimp with tofu and lots of veggies. I cut up some broccoli, carrots, peppers and brussel sprouts. 
I cooked up my veggies with my red curry paste and garlic.  Then I added the cocount milk and tofu and let it simmer for a couple minutes
I served it over brown rice.
So good. I'm having the leftovers tmorrow for lunch!

I also snuck in a good at home workout today. I started out with a 35 minute walk around the neighborhood with Champ. We covered about 2 miles with Champ dragging me for about 1.5 of them until he finally started to get a little warn out.

Then I moved on to doing this workout from Fitness Magazine's website. It's a great workout to do when you are crunched for time.  You only need some 3-8lb dumbbells and a weight bench or stability ball.  I actually ended up using my couch instead of the weight bench.
