Today I’ve got a special treat for you guys. I have a DIY project that comes from a very close friend of mine. She was working on it this weekend and she was kind enough to send me some pictures so I could share it with you guys.
Hello, my darlings and welcome to another Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid. This time I was really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Do you ever have those weeks where you think you have a full fridge and then you turn around and there’s NOTHING in there? How does that even happen? I guess it doesn’t help when your husband is a voracious eating machine. I try and make enough dinner to serve four so there will be enough for lunch the next day and he eats it all. No matter how much I make, he will eat it. I think I’ll start hiding lunch portions in the back of the fridge where he won’t find it.
I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW AMAZING THIS IS. I honestly can’t. It’s incredible. Maybe I loved it so much because my expectations were so low. I don’t know why but I never really liked the idea of tofu. I’ll admit it, I was prejudiced against it. I only ever had it in miso soup and pad thai and I felt like it was squishy and didn’t taste like anything. I didn’t hate it and I didn’t like it; it was completely neutral. So I was hesitant to make a whole alfredo sauce out of the stuff. But this is a kitchen raid and it’s all I had. And it was a-freaking-mazing. So delicious! Dare I say, better than the real thing? I dare. Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
As per #1 on yesterday’s post I needed to make something healthy for dinner or risk feeling like a fraud. So I did. And it was delicious! It was also very easy and fast. I got home late from work last night so this was the perfect, throw together meal. Another bonus – it looks amazing. Talk about presentations that sell.
As you may have guessed from some of my previous posts, I have a pizza problem. It is my number one, go-to cheat food. If I’m going to treat myself after a couple weeks of eating clean and being healthy, I dial the local pizza place. So tonight, I decided to take my beloved pizza and give it a healthy (or healthier than regular pizza) spin. The only things about this recipe that isn’t strictly healthy is the BBQ sauce and the cheese. If you have an issue with gluten, then the crust is a no-no as well but you are saving a tremendous amount of calories when you go this route. To put the cherry on top, this just happens to be delicious. I knew it would taste good but I didn’t know that it would taste this good.
