This and That

I haven't been cooking much this weekend. At least nothing too memorable. I did get a valentine package in the mail from my mother-in-law. Besides all the goodies for the grand kids, it had some fun baking stuff for me. She is the best at getting me all that fun baking stuff that I would never buy for myself.
Here is what I got:

A baking pan to make car shaped cakes--my 3 year old is going to love this. A fun monkey spatula. And a family baking kit that includes a little rolling pin, cookie cutters and cookie mix.

I made a tofu scramble the other day. It had broccoli, peas, fingerling potatoes and tofu--Bryanna's Breast of Tofu to be exact. I love making this tofu. It is an easy marinade to mix up and then you can keep the tofu in the fridge to be used for all kinds of things. I usually pan fry the tofu slices and make sandwiches or put it on a salad. For some reason this time when I made it the tofu slices did not stay together. I either sliced them too thin or the tofu I bought was softer then what I usually get. So I figured it would be best to just make it into a scramble.

I stuffed the tofu scramble into some potato rolls. It was a fun idea and nice and portable, but I have to say I really prefer it with toast. Something about the soft tofu with the crunchy bread is so good.

I'll try to get to cooking this week.
