I was doing laundry yesterday when I found a little friend on my arm. He was still very sleepy, so I carefully brought him upstairs and put him on one of my Christmas cacti (or is it cactuses?).
He's not there anymore, so I assume he found another place to nap until spring arrives.
Last night was vegetarian night again. I made baked tofu. I've never cooked with it before, so this idea of ours has really made me expand my food horizons and try new things. I have no idea what actually goes with tofu, so I made a bunch of other finger foods and salads. It was probably the most successful vegetarian night yet! We were actually full after dinner! Whoa! The tofu wasn't really the highlight, though. It tasted like taste-less egg (if that makes any sense). I tried marinating it with Greek seasonings and either they didn't take, or they needed to marinate a lot longer than 2 hours. Strangely enough, it tasted really good dipped in tzatziki (or the tzatziki was just really good -- it should be! It's mine!) so we were both pretty happy overall. I also had a sweet potato that was starting to grow leaves, so I made some fries. Sweet potatoes are the best, aren't they? I never eat regular ones anymore.
It looks like some strange horned animal, doesn't it?
