Sugar High

It’s been a pretty hectic day over here and to be honest, I really didn’t even feel like cooking tonight but I knew I needed a good, filling meal because I have to close tonight at work and won’t get home probably til 11:30. I defrosted a block of tofu a few days ago and had yet to use it, so tonight I made the Cornmeal-Lime Crusted Tofu out of Veganomicon again. I made this before and LOVED it…but last time I fried it and since I fried my tempeh sticks last night and basically ate my weight in frosting today, I decided to be healthy and bake the little guy instead. I dipped in leftover balsamic-maple sauce from last night, of course! I also stir fried some kale in a little toasted sesame oil, red pepper flakes and garlic and had a plain sweet potato for sides.


My cake turned out FABULOUS!!!! And, oh my god, that frosting is amazing. Like, seriously amazing. Like, my roommate and I couldn’t get our little hands out of it! I didn’t even eat a snack today because I feel full just licking the spoon so many times. I can’t wait to present this gorgeous cake to my family tomorrow!


And….I’m off to work. I’m bringing half a clif bar to eat later on and hoping I won’t get out too late because this day has just exhausted me. I hope that if you all are traveling this afternoon/tonight you are safe and enjoy a wonderful Saturday night!

    Your tofu looks delicious. I’ve always had a lot of trouble cooking tofu, I’ve never tried baking it though. Maybe its time for another shot.

    Caitlin, I read your post like 5 times and still thought you said you ate A dandilion. Couldn’t wrap my head around that one.

    You should have tried to convince stoner guy that you already paid him and could have gotten free food. I bet he just ate half your meal. Those munchies, they’re a killer.

    Hilarious, Kelly T – I thought the exact same thing about Caitlin eating a dandalion! I thought, hmm, how interesting. Edible flowers.
