Gliding Calm Would Be Proud

It has been raining all day long. Although it’s pretty gross outside, it was nice to have a relaxing day inside today. I got most of the laundry finished, dinner made, and am about to make that dish for church tomorrow – don’t worry – I’ll have the recipe  :)

 

My snack during the heartbreaking Hokie game was a slice of my bread with almond butter and a few chocolate chips

Dinner tonight was my first try at Baked Tofu, a la Gliding Calm!

My tofu marinade was:

  • 1.5 Tbsp bbq sauce
  • 2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne

Bake at 425 for 30 minutes. It was perfect! I’m sad I’ve waiting this long to try it! I loved the texture and the kick from the cayenne – I will definitely be making this again.

On the side, I had some mashed sweet potato topped with salt and cinnamon and some roasted zucchini.

Of course, we had to tie in the POM juice in some way – what better than a POMtini?

I used Bobby Flay’s recipe, but we used vodka instead of gin.

So, this was a mix of POM juice, vodka, fresh lemon and fresh orange juice. It was actually a little strong for me, so I poured it into a different glass and added a bit more orange juice. Perfect - the tart pomegranate and the sweet orange juice was  a good combination of flavors.

 

We’re starting a movie right now and then I’m off to cook the couscous really fast so I can get back to it  :)

 

I have a feeling the last of my TJ’s Candy Cane Jo Jo’s will be my snack tonight - just letting you know in case I don’t get a picture!

Oh – and just in case you were wondering, the Heart Health series will resume on Monday! I’m taking a break this weekend, but make sure to tune in for the next installment!

    Your tofu looked like it turned out beautifully, but I liked your snack even better. Lovely close-up shot…just look at that almond butter!

    Enjoy the rest of your evening. Hope you enjoyed a little Jo Jo’s action. :)

    I just saw that TJ’s had another flavor of JoJo’s when I was there the other day, YUM! I need to try that recipe for Gliding Calm’s tofu, I think I would enjoy it! Your Pomtini is so pretty, I think that is what I like about the juice, more than the flavor, is the color!
