I was short on time for lunch today and ran in the door to make this delicious Tofu Salad Sandwich.. basically, I used THIS recipe, but sub'd tofu for the chickpeas. I love it both ways. If you are looking to kick your sandwich up a notch, then definitely try give this a try!
I used Ezekial bread, organic baby collards, tomato and my super simple white bean mayo (based on this recipe, just leave out the lecithin and water for a super cheap and yummy soy free mayo... I am going to be making more tomorrow, so I'll post the revamped recipe in the next couple of days!)
So, I TOTALLY splurged today at Trader Joes (it's only a half mile walk from my apt!).. I think that thanks to Fair Foods , I will still be able to manage my $3.33 a day this month even though I have already spent $33.34 at Trader Joes and $2 yesterday ...
Here's what I got at Trader Joes:
- Corn Tortillas 1.49
- Ezekial Bread 3.99
- 2 jars marinara sauce @ 1.99 each (I was going to make my own, but canned tomatoes are really expensive in Boston, so it was cheaper to buy the sauce)
- 2 lbs frozen organic broccoli @ 2.49 each
- Pickles 2.29
- 3 packages extra firm tofu @ 1.79 each
- 4 organic avocados 4.99
- garlic 1.29
- ginger 1.39
- 2 limes @ .29 each
This getting used to sharing a TINY kitchen with a room mate has been interesting... and challenging.. I am starting to change how I'm doing things a bit and I'll be interested to see how I morph a new system. I am still cooking beans and utilizing the freezer, but on a VERY small scale compared to how I used to.
Yesterday morning I made a big pot of Split Pea Soup (based on this recipe ) and I have been enjoying that. This morning, I added some baby collards and a tablespoon of quinoa to it while it was re-heating and had it for breakfast.
All in all, life is good. I am starting to figure out a small routine and am getting used to things.
My son Andrew is coming home on Saturday from Alasaka!.. I haven't seen him for over 5 months, so I am VERY VERY excited! My younger son is coming home from college for the weekend and I'll be up in Portsmouth on Saturday with them.... I can't wait to have both of my kids and dog in the same room. That is bliss.
