I tend to go through phases in my dinner making. The comfort food phase (food from my youth), the easy food phase (tried and true, most of the family likes it), new food (trying out some of the endless recipes that I have clipped and saved) and the OH.My.Goodness is it already dinner time? (panic at 6:00). Last night I was in the “new food” phase. I started reading a blog called This Miss Cooks and have saved some of her recipes.
I decided to try the Mexican Chopped Salad with Avocado, Black Beans and Quinoa. This salad is DELICIOUS!! It’s also really easy to make and goes together quickly. We had some leftovers and I’ll edit when I’ve eaten them to let you know if this salad saves well.
My husband likes tofu and I had bought some at Costco two weeks ago and wanted to use it up. I tried Fried Tofu Cubes from the website listed on the packaging and they came out pretty good. I think I fried them a little too long as they were a bit more crunchy than we like, but overall pretty good. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal as well as two of the kids. The other two tried the meal and then opted for leftover pizza. Oh, well…you can’t please everyone all the time!
