Friday Night Din-Din


Hello to all! Hope everyone had a good Sunday. Mine was good with some grocery shopping for the 1/2 week (heading home on Thursday), hot yoga, and spending time with Joey! Now i am currently watching the Academy Awards, OF COURSE, and winding down for the evening. First I’ll share my favorite dresses of the evening and then on to the meal πŸ™‚

My best dressed. Miley looks STUNNING!

Cameron looked the best I've seen her in years!

Ok, now on to the recipe! Since I don’t really eat meat and it’s Lent for Joey, we were having a no-meat meal. And I wanted something fun, so I found this AWESOME tofu nugget recipe on Cara’s Cravings.

Ingredients:

1 block tofu

1/4 cup liquid egg whites

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

A few squirts of lime juice (ok so the recipe calls for lime zest, apparently thats not juice, haha, but it still turned out so you can use either)

Instructions:

1)Press the tofu in between paper towels to get the water out

2) Preheat oven to 375

3) Cut tofu into 6 rectangles and then each in half, into little triangles

4) Pour liquid egg whites into a shallow bowl

5) Mix together bread crumbs, coconut, and lime juice/zest and put on a plate

*Side note do not mix ALL the ingredients together, haha

not the same effect. haha

6) Season tofu wedges with salt and pepper, then dip in egg whites and dredge in the breadcrumb mix

7) Place a cooling rack on a a cookie sheet and put wedges on the cooling rack

8 ) Cook for 25-30 minutes; until crisped and browned. *I think mine were about 27 minutes.

9) Enjoy!!

I also made a side of roasted brussels sprouts, following my girl Ina Garten’s recipe to a T.

It was an easy and DELICIOUS meal. Oh and we dipped the nugs in Bone Suckin’ BBQ Sauce, YUM!!

Well that’s it for me! Hope you enjoy the recipe and thanks for the love on my purchases πŸ™‚

  2. I actually didn’t catch the oscars, but have already seen a good amount of red carpet styles- and I really loved Cameron Diaz! So pretty! And I usually don’t like her style…

    Have fun with your short week. πŸ™‚

    • I went through this INSANE cameron obsession when I was in grade school and then it seemed like she never grew up to me, so I really stopped liking her. I’m not into the “pretend im still a twenty-something surfer girl act” But last night she has redeemed herself!

  3. i was disappointed by the oscars! but the dresses were sooo lovely.

    enjoy the day πŸ™‚

  5. I didn’t watch the oscars, but totally agree about cameron!! She looks amazing!! Your tofu looks soooo good!! How creative!! πŸ™‚

  6. Roasted brussies – yum!
    Live from Mars really is such a quality album. Some live records are just so-so, but there are a few artists that I think are BETTER live – Ben being one of ’em!

  7. I loved Cameron Diaz too! I don’t think she’s ever looked so pretty! There were so many beautiful dresses this year. Tofu scares me. I think it’s a texture issue. Plus I have no idea what to do with it! 😦

  8. Cameron Diaz was glowing in that dress, she looked beautiful! I also thought Sandra Bullock looked A-mazing, and I was so happy to see her win πŸ™‚
