Stir-fry tofu with udon noodles
I start by cutting the tofu into bite-size pieces, coating with sesame oil (YUM!!) and putting them in a 350 degree preheated oven and letting them bake for about 30 minutes. Then I saute my veggies, Onions, garlic, red and yellow peppers, add my green beans after about 10 minutes. Once veggies are cooked I'll add my udon and tofu. Add more sesame oil and soy sauce for taste.

If you haven't noticed, I love food and books. I follow many food and book related blogs, podcasts, and social media...you get the picture. I follow the Library of Congress on Facebook. A few months ago the library announced that they digitized Rosa Parks papers. What does a pioneer of the Civil Rights have to do with food? Guess what? Quite a lot. Ms. Parks recipes are digitized. One that's making its way around the internet (Both NPR and Food52 had stories) is Ms Parks recipe for "Featherlight" Peanut butter Pancakes. Peanut butter Pancakes! Yes! Ms Parks would not down her recipes on any readily available scrap of paper. In this case, a bank deposit envelope. Yes, the envelope has been digitized. I found the complete recipe and method via Food52 and decided to whip up a batch. As you can see, I made a wee pancake for Marley. She was most pleased. I topped my pancakes with cinnamon and bananas. I'm a rebel myself, see? I'm also sharing the photo of the original envelope on which Ms Parks wrote the recipe. Kendall Jenner has Pepsi, I have Rosa Parks pancakes..

First....who came up with this day? National-Eat-Anything-You-Want Day. It's a crying shame that it landed on a Thursday -a school night, soccer tryouts, and work night. What I really wanted was a chargrilled steak, medium rare with A1 sauce and a big sweet potato! But given the circumstances and levels of exhaustion from the day's activities, we ate goat cheese stuffed ravioli. Mind you, it was frozen from a box, so don't ask me for the recipe. But I did top it off with Homemade Alfredo Sauce and served it with homegrown tomatoes and a garnish of parsley. Side note: Matt harvested about 10 maters. They are the best!! It was so delicious that I had seconds which rarely happens. 😉

This past Thursday was "National Eat Whatever You Want" day.. Seriously.. So the challenge was make whatever you want Thursday.
Randy and I are rounding the corner to our big move. So I am still using what is in the freezer and/or pantry.
Thank you to these lovelies for keeping things exciting on here for me.
Next week is Angie's week and she was having a little mercy on me. Our food challenge is to take a photo of our favorite pastry, bakery item. Bought.. Not made.. Which is fabulous because the rest of the kitchen will be packed this week.
Georgia, Angie, Amy and Nikita.. And let's not forget Amy's new sidekick Marley!!
