Snow Day & Roasted Tofu





Remember when it snowed in March and it made people grumpy and nervous as they drove to work but by the evening time it was completely melted and the next day was sunny and gorgeous?

We remember. So does Santi.

No, he forgot already. So we took lots of pictures so he can remember for years to come.




 


I just imagined showing him these photos when he is 5 year old and heard him say, "I don't remember that!"

Silly rabbit. You better remember. It was the greatest day known to man here in the chilly Northwest!

PS: snow leaves everything looking absolutely stunning. I remember, and will never forget, what a friend once said about snow. She said it was God's way of making everything beautiful. Garbage looks perfect as it sparkles, dead plants glimmer and shine, everywhere you look resembles a breath-taking painting.

Love it, so much. The Lord is so kind to give us such a gorgeous day to enjoy.




On a chilly day, I want food from the oven. This chilly day called for the recipe. It is so simple, and surprisingly uhhhmazing tasting. Something about glazed sweet potato n' tofu cubes that just sings! 



Balsamic Roasted Tofu and Sweet Taters
Serves 4-5 as a side.

1 20oz block of your favorite firm tofu
2 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 date, mashed with a fork.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, cut your tofu and sweet taters in cubes, a little bigger than the size of a dice. Pour the balsamic vinegar in a small pot and bring to a simmer. Add your mashed date to the vinegar and whisk, then lower the heat. Once the dates are well incorporated into the vinegar, remove from heat and set aside (you will want it to cool off completely.) Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine sweet potato and tofu cubes in a large bowl, and drizzle the balsamic glaze on top. If it is cool enough, use your hands to coat the cubes completely. Or have fun with a kitchen brush and try to cover everything evenly. Bake 20 minutes, give the trays a shake and shake another 10-15, or until sweet potato is cooked and golden. Serve with a plate of greens, or whatever your taste buds desire!



Nehemiah 9:6 “You are the only Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, with all the stars. You made the earth and everything on it, the seas and everything in them; You give life to everything. The heavenly army worships You.”
