1 serving of cooked spaghettini (if you are making it for 2, double accordingly.)
If you are lucky enough to live within a decent distance from a Chinese/Asian market, you can purchase a take out order of stir fried tofu in a rich spicy tomato sauce. If not, you can stir fry a package of medium -firm tofu, then toss it in a cup or more of spiced tomato sauce , canned is fine, unless you want to make up a batch of salsa on your own.
The green you see is fresh garlic leek sprouts that I either cook with the pasta, or dice it cold. Then toss with great gusto.. and delve in
Simple, easy and satisfying. You can eat it cold, or as a hot dish. In the summer I go for cold, with a nice green salad on the side.
Seasoning in the dish, ginger, garlic, and Japanese red pepper/chilli.. (fish sauce optional)
A change was made for about a week. instead of my solitary eggs.. (poached) I added fruit. I had a hankering for persimmons and indulged myself. Didn’t help that at T & T ( Asian grocery story,) they were only being sold by the crate. During the Chinese New Year, this fruit is much in demand.
Lesson learned. I am not a big fruit eater, love blueberries, (in season) and will have the odd apple over the course of the year, but fruit is not part of my daily diet. The lesson, one should do things in moderation…. this is a lesson, I seem to have to revisit more than I would like to.
Meet Oskar, his human sent me this picture the other day. I have yet to meet Oskar in person, he is such a charmer. A morning smile is always the best way to start the day.
Merci Oskar, than you Oskar for the smile..
Blessings everyone, have a happy productive day, service is at 10 tomorrow, see you then.
