An actual food post!

I had dinner last Sunday and had kevin and janet over. The dinner was Coconut Rice from VWAV, a medley of squash and Horseradish-Coriander crusted tofu.

it was delish.

I wanted to visit when everyone arrived so i prepared everything in advance. All i had to do was turn on the heat.
I started with the coconut rice which was made with coconut milk, lime zest and a cinnamon stick.

when the rice is done, you top it with toasted coconut...yum!

Then i prepared the crust which is also from VWAV and is made with Panko bread crumbs, crushed mint & garlic, ground coriander & horseradish. It called for freshly grated horseradish but I used my bloody mary horseradish and i think that's a no no.

Here are the tofu squares. I coulnd't get the coating to stick, so i just laid the tofu in the pan and topped it instead. still tasted intereting - in a good way.


then i chopped zucchini and yellow squash in my amazing Vidalia Onion Chop Wizard...5 squashes in less than one minute. God i love that thing....
VIOLA! the finished product!
and just because he's so damn good looking...

If I had never visited your blog, and saw this for the first time- It looks like your dog was the main course! I bet he watches you 24/7 to make sure you don't go "Carno" on him....
