One of my favorite things to do with my Dad is eat at a hole-in-the-wall BBQ place. You know, some creepy shack off a desolate highway? They always have the BEST BBQ.
(I ate at this place for a pre-race mealâ€¦ insanity. What was I thinking?!).
But, itâ€™s hard to eat BBQ when youâ€™re a vegetarian. Tonight, I made my own version of Southern goodness at home!
I had corn on the cobâ€¦.
With roasted Ruby Gold Potatoes and organic ketchupâ€¦
This is the kind of potatoes I used. I chopped them up and rubbed them with salt, pepper, parsley, and EVOO before cooking at 425 until golden.
And tofu, which I rubbed with Anneâ€™s Natural Organic BBQ sauce before baking.
My tofu trick for minimizing dishes? Marinate in the corner the tofu comes it â€“ just cut off the top and add the sauce! I buy pre-cubed extra firm Nasoya tofu, which doesnâ€™t need to be pressed.
Iâ€™m going to have a Clementine for dessert. 🙂
Other snacks of the afternoon included a banana and Stacyâ€™s pita chips and salsa:
Well, night class is officially over for the Fall! Iâ€™m relieved. Anatomy class stressed me out! Since Iâ€™ve deferred my entrance to physical therapist graduate school (because of the book), Iâ€™m not taking classes next semester. Iâ€™m thrilled! 🙂
Iâ€™m thinking about volunteering with Girls on the Run in the Spring. GOTR is a non-profit prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Sounds right up my alley, right?!
Do you volunteer your time for a charity?
