Miscellany

I’ve been needing to catch up on a couple of fun things.  The first is my recipe for the week.  It’s a side dish–though it’s all I had for dinner…like 4 servings of it!.  The second is an award that I was given a couple of weeks ago (I’ve just been too busy to post about it).

Tomato, Cucumber, and Tofu Salad:
Makes 10 servings

This is a really tasty and simple recipe.  I’d recommend it be consumed the same day, as both the tomatoes and cucumbers lose liquid over time–and the dish gets really watery. 

Ingredients:
2 containers Lift Extra Firm Tofu, drained and chopped into chunks
3 large red ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 large english cucumber, chopped
2 cups thawed frozen peas
1 package dill
1 small container Fage 2% plain Greek Yogurt
2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt & Pepper to taste

Instructions:
Drain and press the tofu, then chop and add to bowl
Add chopped tomatoes and cucumbers to bowl
Puree thawed Peas, Greek Yogurt, Dill, Lemon Juice, and salt/pepper
Pour blended mixture onto other ingredients & stir

What would you change about your life?
Honestly, this question always get me.  Yes, there are things I wish I did differently, btu I firmly believe that every choice I made and every path I took made me who I am.  I have a wonderful wife, I’m living a healthy(ish) lifestyle, and am part of a wonderful family.  Who knows where or who I’d be without all of my life’s experiences?  So no, I don’t think I’d change anything…

  1. I certainly think the five words describe your blog, Beej.I was more intrigued, however, by the "what would you change" question. Like you, there are things in my life I regret – one in particular. That one mistake has had impacts on my life that resonate to this day, and I am sure will resonate my whole life, yet, without the lessons I learned at that point in my life (as well as, and moreso because of God's grace), I would not be where I am today professionally. Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

  2. Whoa, numbers 8 and 9 are…eerily impressive, esp the latter. But I'm glad you don't do them anymore!

  3. Bubba says:

    Beej, we might have to talk about that spice/sauce company. As weird as it is, I have a spice rub/sauce company too.

  4. Bubba, Beej's spices are the BOMB!Love the list beej. I had never considered living in a shipping container, but got a kick out of seeing some of those designs! Neat.
