Another healthy meal. Once I peeled off the skin this chicken was great. I know that chicken breast is better for you(less fat), but these legs are only $1 per pound. Veggies are never too expensive, but the protein source kills me. Luckily I am discovering that Tofu is a great source of lean protein and it is about $2 a pound.
Today I experimented further with cubed tofu. I diced up some firm tofu up and marinated it in ranch powder, pepper and liquid smoke. I baked it at 350 for almost an hour, turning halfway thru. They came out delicious! Liquid smoke was the secret. What a great healthy meal, now if I can just do this more regularly I will be be in better shape. Tofu continues to amaze me.
My second attempt at cooking tofu was a success! I experimented with two different marinades, one with Ranch powder and the other was heavy with Chacheres. Both versions were tasty. I think the grill is the key to good tofu. Next attempt I will use the oven and see what happens. Broccoli, green beans, and tofu squares...A healthy lunch!
So I stopped into Rosa Ritas in Needville, TX yesterday afternoon with a craving for a burrito. I sat down at the bar and without using a menu asked for a tortilla wrapped delicacy to quench my hunger. The waiter asked me if I wanted the big burrito, I asked how much it was and after learning it was $10.99 I said why not. As I was munching on some chips and salsa the waiter brought out a timer with my silverware, I asked what it was for and he said the challenge you just accepted! "The Big Burrito Challenge!" He then explained if I ate the entire burrito and sides, in any amount of time, I would gain instant fame with a picture on the wall. My immediate thought was of the Man vs. Food episodes. With only eight pictures adorning the burrito wall, I was excited to see what I had gotten into. Then they brought out the Monstrosity! It must have weighed 4 pounds! My tail instantly curled between my legs when I realized what I was against. I almost immediately decided today would not be the day to conquer the burrito! I know that's weak, but I was just not in the mindset for conquering the Mexican Sequoia Trunk that laid before me. I ate what I could comfortably and managed to take down a third of the beast. I left feeling defeated and in a state of awe after encountering the mythical burrito. I will return! This is not over!
The key to success! Raw, healthy, nutritious
