Homemade takeout for Missy

Missy and I have plans for tonight that leave little time for cooking. So I made takeout Chinese to take her! The chopsticks are just a prop to remind you of the Asian flavor profile. Yes, that is whole wheat spaghetti… Fred Meyer didn’t have soba noodles (which are supposed to be the healthier, higher protein option). This dish required three pots going at once – one for the pasta, one for the tofu and another for the sweet potato. Once the sweet potato was done, I threw it in with the tofu (which was frying in peanut oil and soy sauce) and used its pan for onion, garlic and ginger. Once THAT was done, I added water chestnuts and mushrooms. From there it’s a free-for-all, and everything gets mixed together with random splashes of sesame oil, rice vinegar, sriracha, soy sauce, and chili sauce. Dash, dash, dash until it tastes like you like it. Beward of the saltiness getting out of hand.

I think she will like.

Lots of spinning so far this week… hoping to reverse some of the damage from the past two weeks. Weigh-in Wednesday tomorrow!
