Aw, ya baked!

I have been sick for the past week or so, and today I thought I'd take it easy in hopes that I will be well before Friday (my birthday celebration!). So when it came to feeding myself, I really did not want to go anywhere or spend any money.

I found extra firm tofu (which I bought for the cleanse & subsequently did not eat) and decided I'd try cooking it. After googling things like "How to make tofu taste good" and realizing I didn't have enough ingredients for anything, I decided on this recipe from AllRecipes.com.

Of the ingredient list, I was missing: ginger, curry powder, chile paste, tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, fresh basil and bok choy.

I improvised.

I used hot pepper jelly (why this was in my parents' fridge, I have no idea), ground cumin, red pepper flakes, minced garlic, spinach, frozen veggies-in-a-bag (randomly found in the freezer) and a ridiculous amount of powdered basil (I thought it had a salt shaker-like top, but no).





It actually turned out pretty well! Considering I am by no means a cook, I was beyond excited. I poured that bad boy over rice-in-a-bag and ate it up.
