Oh my god, Sarra is coming to visit me from Seattle!! OH MY GOD! I'm so ecstatic that I actually “OMG”ed. That should tell you how excited I am! We're going to swim in the lake and drink cocktails and explore and all sorts of awesome stuff. Oh man, so excited I can't think straight. Eeeeee!
I made tofu for the first time! I squished out all the liquid and then let it soak in a mixture of soy sauce, olive oil, vinegar, garlic salt, and red pepper flakes. Then I cut it into quarters and baked it at 375F for...15 minutes, maybe? I think my oven bakes hot. Either that or I panic at the possibility of burning things and yank them out early. Anyway, it tastes amazing. I ate my first chunk with some pasta tossed with a little olive oil, shredded parmesan, and red pepper flakes.
My photos are suck due to bad lighting and the fact I don't actually have any real bowls. But! You get the rough idea, if nothing else.
Carter: Also, if Ellie is D'Artagnan, we need to pick out our Musketeer names! So we can refer to each other as such.
Mel: You're Athos, the mom.
Mel: I'm Porthos, the gullible one.
Carter: So Heidi is Aramis?
Mel: And Heidi is Aramis...loves and intrigues women!
So, I was like, I need to Photoshop that!
I'm already thinking about Halloween. I'm going to decorate and dress up for the first time! Yay! I'm already super excited. If Amanda is able to help me out in the way she's offered, my costume will be fabulous.
