get yer rayaya's out (vegan mofo day 8)
this was my second time making rayaya's tofu cutlets from table for two. for all my love of fried foods, i kind of suck at frying, go figure. these turned out better than last time, when i think i used too much oil and didn't coat the pieces well enough. third time will be a charm i guess, but i do prefer the crispy tofu sticks on the opposite page. it's still a bit too hot to use the oven, hopefully we get a break soon.
since someone was wonderful enough to recall the copy of bless me ultima i had checked out, i stopped by the library after work to return it. i was a bit peeved since i had barely started it, but then realized with all of the mo-foolery i would probably not read it in the next three weeks even if i had been able to renew it. i'll pick up another copy when my cookbook hold harvest comes in and hopefully that is soon. i did get caramelo, the vegetarian family cookbook, and williams-sonoma thanksgiving entertaining, woo!
after that, i decided to do a few laps around the "regular" supermarket and i saw this. they had blueberry, plain and strawberry banana, which are only half of the flavors (raspberry, vanilla, passionate mango). i almost got the blueberry one, but it was almost three dollars for one teeny yogurt so i put it back. hopefully i find it again in another store for less because it sounded really good. i'm probably late to the game as usual, but at least i got there.
