For lunch today, Jason and I went to Thaicoon, a Thai and Sushi restaurant next door to our house. He’d read that on Sunday’s they have an authentic Thai menu. Jason ordered two things from the special menu – bbq chicken and a seafood soup. I was not as adventurous and just went with sashimi and seaweed salad from the regular menu. (I realize that calling sashimi and seaweed salad not adventurous is somewhat ironic.) I wish I had brought my camera because Jason’s food was well, interesting looking. The soup was pink. I know that this is completely un-PC to say, but it really grossed me out! He asked the waitress about the color and she said it was from the marinated tofu, which looked like gelatinous blobs to me! I’ll fully admit it, I like Americanized Asian food. I do not have an adventurous palate at all. What about you? Do you prefer the Americanized version of ethnic food or do you for the real thing?
For dinner tonight, I made Italian Style Tofu Bake from the South Beach Diet cookbook.
I pressed the tofu while I went to Kroger to get spinach, so it probably was under a book for a good half hour or more. I only used half the spinach that the recipe called for because I didn’t realize that it needed 10 oz. The tubs of spinach that I buy, which I think of as large, are only 5 ounces. And I used an undetermined amount of sun-dried tomatoes because they were already cut and I wasn’t sure what constituted as four.
I liked this meal. The tofu was a tad bit bland, but the flavor was like a pizza and you all know that I like to make pizza type stuff at home.
They posted the chip times for yesterday’s race. Mine was 58:52! A PR by a little over a minute. Yay.
