Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. –  Ralph Waldo Emerson


So I had an accident in my kitchen last night, it really upset me and kinda scared the heck out of me. My cooking spray is in the cabinet above my stove and when I went to reach for it to spray a pan to heat up some tortillas, it slipped and it hit my Glass Stove top and smashed it. I was sick instantly. After I had a pity party, I went online to see if I could get a replacement piece, I realized that they are about $350.00. So I guess I’m going to get a new stove. That is what makes me so mad about this I broke something that should break on its own. So I’m on the hunt for a new stove.

I can still use the two right burners and the stove, so I’m really glad about that, but to prevent it from happening again, I will be moving my cooking spray. Lesson Learned.

Meatless Monday is here, and I tried a new recipe tonight. I used a basic lasagna recipe and replaced the ricotta with tofu. I really love cheese and I really love tofu so this recipe was a winner.

Tofu Lasagna

Just a few ingredients is all that is needed for this dish.

  • 1 Jar Pasta Sauce
  • 6 No Bake Lasagna Pasta Noodles
  • 1 Tofu Brick, drained and crumbled
  • 1 Bag Frozen Spinach
  • Mozzarella Cheese Ball Sliced or Shredded
Pasta sauce lines the bottom of the 9×9 pan, then I added 2 strips of no bake noodles. Then add the crumbled tofu and a thin layer of spinach. To top off that layer I used 4 or 5 thin slices of the mozzarella ball, but you can shredded cheese if you prefer, then repeat all layers 2 more times. I like to use a 9×9 pan because it’s just enough for two meals. If I’m feeding more people I just use a 13×9 pan and double the ingredients. That’s the great thing about lasagna, you can add as many layers as you want and change it to add different ingredients.

With a side of baked kale chips and a slice of garlic cheese bread, this meatless Monday was a hit.

Kale chips are a favorite of mine, I love the way they crisp up and add texture to a meal. I toss them with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake on 350 degree for 12 minutes.

Today I completed 45 minutes on the elliptical. I was crunched for time tonight. I wanted to do some weights today, but I will have more time to get that done tomorrow.

Question of the day: Have you ever broke an appliance?
