But first tofu. Yes, I can make dishes without meat. Since I have been consistently grossing out all the vegetarians out there, today I am showing you a meatless dish. I LOVE tofu. But I hate the jelly, bouncy brands available. I am not a gadget person. I find that most gadgets don't work very well. A few months ago I saw a tofu press advertised and it looked like it had potential. They were on back order and I kept getting updates on shipping where they gave me the chance to cancel the order. I almost canceled several times but didn't and I sure am glad that I hung in there and waited for it.
This is it...the Tofu Express. I can't say enough about it. This can be used with spinach, yogurt, cheese, eggplant and you can use it to make pressed rice. And it is dishwasher safe. You can find it at: www.TofuXpress.com
It squeezes all the liquid out and is so easy to use.
Remember several months ago I made my own vanilla extract. Here it is, ready to use!
Ok...this is what no one EVER sees. My basement pantry and craft area otherwise known as the cave of embarrassment! I decided to organize it a bit and I thought it was time to come out the closet, so to speak. There are 5 of these units that hold all of my pantry items.
This is part of my craft area.
After I finished organizing it, I hung sheer panels to keep dust away. You may never see this again!
Teddy was patrolling the kitchen again this morning.
It is a tiring job. So, one big yawn and.....
a standing nap.
I ran out to a few thrift stores this morning. I found this signed pot by L. Toya which is from the Jemez pueblo in New Mexico. SCORE!!! I paid 1.95 for it.
And I got this tiny casserole that matches my new Le Creuset. It cost 1.95 and is brand new.
I found 2 of these black glass cats.
They are candle holders and they were 95 cents.
I found this set of plates for 50 cents each. I will use them in my mosaics.
Here is another tip for all you thrifters out there. If scraping labels drives you as crazy as it does me, buy one of these pens. They are nothing short of miraculous.
Here is a short video of Teddy.
