“We are old ladies” was a common theme throughout the day. After my exam in wellness today my friends and I decided to go to antique stores and to St. Vincent de Paul’s. We were not shopping for any particular reason, we hoped to maybe find a cool decorative piece for the apartment or possibly a book. Our shopping excursion was far more successful than we had planned. We found books, puzzles and boardgames! [I couldn’t help but chuckle as I typed that.] It’s undecided, are we 7 years old or 70? The puzzle is an awesome history puzzle 600+ pieces with a time line from 1900-1940 and names of the important persons’ on the board. We are nerds. Our other great finds include Taboo and the book Tabloid Love (sure to be a guilty pleasure).We had planned to go to Bootcamp today, but we were too engrossed in the books and clothing at St. Vincent’s and lost track of time.
For dinner, an old friend from HS that I ran into on campus came over to the apartment. We cooked up a quick vegetarian dinner. Other than a few issues with the rice boiling over (I never make rice! I though it was easier) and the broiler automatically turning off we had a great dinner. The tofu was marinated with soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sauteed with onions. We had originally planned to roast the cauliflower, but the oven had other plans for us. The cauliflower was then thrown in a pan and we also sauteed the cauliflower. Dinner was ready in 30 minutes.It wasn’t the most colorful, but if we’d been prepared with more vegetables and a satiated appetite; the presentation could have greatly improved. Despite lacking in presentation, the flavor was well accounted for.
After dinner we played a few rounds of Taboo and then later on in the evening it was back to assembling the puzzle. Simple Pleasures.
What do you do for fun in the evening?
Have you ever cooked tofu?
