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.
Dip and Drag Curl
Side Lunge with Teacup Raise
Lower Half Lift
I went through these exercises twice. My favorite was the kickstand. Holy cow was my ars burning! I have a feeling I'll be sore tomorrow. I have my last dress fitting tomorrow night and our invitations are in the mail!!!
