Hello there. How are you? It is Friday. Yippee! I have been busy baking cupcakes for upcoming parties. I also am excited to say that a recipe from Two Vegan Boys is featured in the current issue of Meatout Mondays .
In other news, we are a winner winner tofu dinner. No really. Happy Herbivore had a question one day that said, “Do you tofu?” I mentioned that we especially liked to make and eat tofu jerky. Our suggestion along with another was chosen. We won a Nasoya tofu gift pack. Insert Snoopy dance here. By the way, have you checked out Happy Herbivore lately? Tomorrow starts the 30 WHOLE Days Challenge. A challenge in which you only eat whole, unprocessed foods for the next 30 days.

Last night I made a quick and tasty meal using the last of our CSA veggies. I made sauteed beets and greens with white beans and broccoli over a bed of couscous topped with a ginger orange sauce. And balsalmic baked tofu on the side. It was a lite and refreshing meal. The greens used were from the beets and some arugula from our CSA.
Last night I made a treat for the guys in my life. Strawberry cupcakes. Heavenly!
Well I am about to leave to go pick up our weekly CSA. I can’t wait to see what lovely vegetables are in store for us this week.
