Tofu Fried Rice

Grr. For the first time since I’ve been blogging, I lost a whole entry. It was this entry.

I had to be mad for 2 hours (and do school work) before I attempted it again.

Ok, let’s see what I remember. I know I started it off talking about last night’s dinner. The vegetarian stuffed peppers. They turned out very well. They were spicy, flavorful, and filling. They tasted great with the mashed potatoes I served them with, and there was plenty leftover.
I was able to have one for lunch today, and my husband will be able to have one tomorrow night when I am working at my part time job.

Tonight I made this Fried Rice that I make often, with every vegetable I have in the house in a pan with fresh garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce and a bit of brown sugar. Then, I add brown rice. BUT, today, I added tiny cubes of extra firm tofu.
This is my 4th attempt at cooking tofu, and my most successful.
Since I am getting used to the texture, I think the tiny cubes helped a LOT. I wish I would’ve done that to start with. I think it helps the adjustment period with tofu.

Anyway, it felt good to eat so many veggies and fruits today, and I had way more energy. I also stayed in my WW points plus, which is the first time since I went to Vegas.
I’ve been a total wreck loose since then, and I am already feeling better with a day of success behind me.
Now, I just have to get back to the gym.
Cross your fingers I make it tomorrow night after tutoring.

Well, I will leave you with a picture of tonight’s dinner. Yummmmy.
