Thursday Morning

Last night’s spin class was fantastic! I got there for a full half hour of biking before class and then did 42 minutes of class (I always leave early to get home and fix dinner) for a good 72 minutes of spinning! I felt great and strong which is always nice in class and I did 26.2 miles (a marathon!) and burned 539 calories.

Once home I only had to throw dinner together since all the prep-work had been done at nap-time. I made Hash Browns with Italian Seasoned Tofu from “Way to Cook Vegetarian”. This was a pretty simple dish that seems like it took more work than it did. 🙂

  • In a large skillet heat oil and saute diced carrots, onion and garlic for several minutes
  • Add potatoes (the recipe calls for a bag of Simply Potatoes refrigerated diced potatoes with onion-takes some of the work out!) and saute until browned
  • Add red pepper, salt, pepper and tofu and cook 4 minutes more
  • Serve and sprinkle with fresh parsley

The recipe wants you to buy a specific type of italian-seasoned tofu but I already had regular on hand so I made my own. After my tofu was drained and cubed I tossed it in a bag with EVOO and some italian seasoning and left it in the fridge until cooking, that seemed to work just fine!

This was pretty good and Zach and I both agreed it would make an awesome breakfast dish with a runny egg on top. Perhaps that will be in the plans soon…


Broke out my giant bag of oats from the amish store for my oatmeal this morning! This should last me quite some time I imagine. 🙂
