My brother and I just split Guitar Hero: World Tour for his Xbox 360, and so...we clearly have to play that for the rest of the night.
I will come back and edit the nutrition info tomorrow (edit, I updated it!! I told you!), but I didn't want to get too behind.
First, I did go out for lunch with my mom's friends, and my friend (who was one of my bridesmaids, and I almost ran over with my car when I dropped her off, but that's a story I don't have time for right now...oh, wait I do. I hit the gas HARD instead of the brakes. Oops.).
I had pizza with a whole wheat crust, pizza sauce, artichokes, broccoli, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes. I brought these leftovers home, but by the time I went to the grocery store, almost ran over my friend, and got home, I was hungry again, so it is all finished :) It was really really good. And I was glad to be able to order some awesome looking vegan food instead of a salad.
It was funny too, I totally recognized our waiter from somewhere, and figured I had just seen him there before. But after coming over to our table a few times he goes "Are you my gym friend?" Haha, I have been saying hi to this guy at the gym for 2 years, and didn't know his name (he didn't know mine either). In my defense, he wasn't wearing the a hat, like he usually does. In fact, I actually even saw him there this morning. Speaking of the gym this morning...I was totally there for two hours, ugh. I had to make up for the day I missed from the snow on Wednesday. It was a lot of lifting, chest and leg day right after one another (with a banana in between), but I'm glad I did it and didn't have another weird behind week. I like being on schedule.
So much for being short, right? I can't help myself!
I am currently recipe testing for Robin Robertson's new book Vegan on the Cheap. I am so excited about it! Tonight we had one of the recipes I was given along with the Chile Cornmeal Crusted Tofu from Veganomicon.
I actually think this is the first thing I have made from V'con? I really liked them! I don't have kids either, but it seemed like they would be pretty kid friendly. Kind of like chicken fingers...but with tofu.

If you're wondering how I figured this out, because you dredge the tofu and have a lot of cornmeal mixture left over, I actually measured everything before and after. Yep...I'm a nut like that.
This is a separate shot of the Orange-Chipotle Dressed Salad with Black Bean Salsa

This was SPICY. I was really surprised that my mom ate it, actually. She has zero tolerance for anything spicy. But she was good as long as she had the orange every couple of bites. Everyone liked it, and, seriously, it was really cheap! I had intentions of calculating the price, but I lost my receipt.
I know I only got 5 recipes to test, but from getting a peek at the whole list, I personally can't wait to get the book.
Okay, so I'm being yelled at by my bandmates. I'll be back tomorrow to update this crappy post at the very least!
