Well, I haven't been too busy to eat so much as too busy to cook fun things. The holiday rush at the store is keeping us on our toes, which is a great thing. But we have barely had time to do anything else! That's okay, though. We'll be back to normal in a few weeks, I'm sure.
Since we have been relying mostly on convenience-type foods for sustenance the past few weeks, I've only made a couple of dinners worth noting. The first is a fast meal, and one of our new favorites. Spinach stir-fry from Don't Have a Cow #3. I normally don't follow recipes for stir-fry because...well, I can usually figure out stir-fry on my own. And this one is very simple, but the sauce is so tasty that it reminds us of chinese restaurant food. In addition to fresh spinach, I threw in some walnuts and "chicken" strips. The rice looks yellowish because I like to cook brown rice with vegetable broth rather than water. As usual, here's the blurry photo that does no justice to the dish:
On Friday night, I made the tofu quiche from Garden of Vegan. I've made this often, and it's always great. This one is made with broccoli & onions. Sometimes I make my own pie crust, and sometimes I don't. This one is a pre-made Wholly Wholesome whole wheat crust. They're pretty inexpensive, and a real time saver.
Alright! There is some more cooking over the horizon, since I have to make a potluck dish for work on Tuesday. I'm bringing stuffed shells, which will be funny since they're stuffed with tofu. "These are great! What's in them?" Tofu. "Ew, I thought they tasted funny." Ha.
