I feel like I've been glued to homework for days. In reality, it's only been about 48 hours on and off (mostly on). Just a few more days and I'll be free of learning. Hopefully.
Ryan went off his juice fast, which means I'm back to thinking I should prepare meals again. When I was pondering the whole dinner event earlier (and the amount of time I didn't want to devote to it), my girl E reminded me of something quick and simple...grilled tofu with vegetables.
It's easy. Make a marinade with a little olive oil, fresh pressed garlic, lemon juice and whatever herbs you have growing. I used rosemary, tarragon, basil and thyme. Cube up a block of tofu. You can press it if you want. I didn't. Coat the tofu with the marinade. Chop up a bunch of vegetables...whatever you have...and throw them in the bowl. GENTLY stir it all up so marinade is on all. You can cook it right away, I suppose, but I kind of walked off and left it for a few hours.
I use my cheater grill. It's one of those contraptions you just plug into the wall in the kitchen. In my defense, I was going to buy Ryan a new grill for outside on Father's Day, because something is wrong with the one we have. But he said "WHAT? WHY? We don't eat meat." He had a point.
Oh, I grill on foil. Because I'm not washing that thing.
Remember quick and simple? It's more like "simple". You can't just grill all of that at once. I think I had to split it up in 4 batches on the grill which meant I was just standing around doing nothing while all that was happening.
Oh. I did try to cut up a mango. Was going to cut up 3 of them and call them "dessert". But...if there's one thing I suck at it's cutting up mangos (mangoes?). After the first one, which turned out horribly by the way, I gave up and resumed standing around doing nothing.
And then I remembered hummus. We didn't have any. Well, we do now...because I made some while I was standing around doing nothing. If you are going to be making hummus, you might just as well double it up so you can make a little "hummus delivery" to someone you know who likes it.
And now I should get back to homework. I wonder if they even read all that stuff. Perhaps I'll turn in a paper written in the style I write here...all grammatically incorrect with sentence fragments and whatnot...just to see. Or, maybe not.
