Well, I finally remembered that I wanted to try out my own version and this is what it came out as. Not too bad. It’s basically soy sauce, water, tofu, cilantro, lime, onion and garlic powder. Even with the Lite Soy Sauce and diluting it with water, the sodium is pretty high so you’ve got to make sure that you budget it into your daily intake but it’s just so yummy, it’s worth it!
I’m not even the biggest fan of eating tofu just like that…but somehow it’s ok in this meal.
Noticed that Love and Olive Oil did something along the same taste buds: Spicy Lime and Herbed Tofu Lettuce Wraps. Definitely will have to try that!
Jim came up with a great idea for cutting out plastic grocery bags. We have some canvas bags that we use if we’re only getting a few things but since we both hate grocery shopping, we usually try to buy enough stuff to last us two weeks at a time (not including veggies, those we usually have to buy every week).
It’d be a different story if we lived in a great metro city with little fruit and veggie stands just down the block but that just isn’t so. As with many of you, we would need at least 10 canvas bags to cover all our grocery needs. Storing 10+ reusable bags in a car can get bulky.
So Jim came up with the idea of making two large bags that would snap onto the edges of a grocery cart. You would just put all your groceries in these two large sacks and lift the entire thing out to put in the back of your trunk. I would sew straps onto the edges for easier mobility of course.
Then you would only need two or three of these large bags instead of 10 small canvas bags!
Wouldn’t work for people who have to walk home with their groceries but it’d be great for the majority of those who drive to the store, right?
I should get working on it…we have grocery shopping this weekend.
