Some days you have to do things you don’t want to do. Today I had to spend 3 hours in traffic to deliver the bad news of a layoff to a friend and co-worker. I know she will land on her feet, just like my kitties, but when you think you’re not ready to leave a position it’s hard to hear that you not being given the choice to stay or go. Does a closed door really always mean another will open…I think it does. Sometimes we’re just afraid to step out of our cozy little realm until we’re forced with a prod to our backsides. Anyway…this was not something I wanted to do and the fact that I had to drive 45 miles one way to deliver the message didn’t help. So what does one eat for dinner when one has had a grumpy day??? Well I don’t know what one eats but I barbecued. Sliced up peppers, zuke, asparagus, and for protein a little grilled tofu. No seasoning other than a little salt and pepper to let the vibrant veggie flavors shine through. Everything was served atop a bed of baby arugula with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It mellowed me out considerably!
Lined up like little veggie soldiers on the grill
Then the tofu…from package
To perfection…ok so I don’t have the cross-hatch thing going on, I’ll learn
Veggies all resting before chopping. That sounds so brutal, doesn’t it?
A lotta lovin’ in a bowl.
