Since getting home from my trip to Virginia late Monday morning I have been exhausted. I did not get much sleep on this trip. Between the drive and the late nights with my family I really did not get my normal restful sleep. I am spoiled I normally get 8 to 9 hours of sleep per night. So this week I have just tried to make up for the lack of sleep by going to bed early and keeping my to-do list short. That is hard  to do when I am so totally excited about the Blend Retreat this weekend. The packing for the retreat has been easy, workout cloths, hiking cloths, a cute outfit for dinner and a pair of jeans.

I’m attending Blend Retreat 2012.

I am like a kid ready for Disney, I can not think straight, I am so excited and I keep obsessing about the trip details.

Pressed for time I kept dinner easy and went with a tofu and noodles dish.

When I bought my Tofu Press it was a game changer, being able to press out all the water tofu is packaged in and them marinate it really made a difference with the end result. Pressing the tofu allows it to then absorb all the flavors in your marinate.

This is my favorite combo, right now. I’m on a tangy lime kick.

I marinated this brick overnight.

Bake on 425 degrees for 25 minutes.

Made a Kung Pao noodle bowl.

Thew on some edamame beans.

Dinner is done. The Kung Pao really has a kick to it. Loved it.

So now I just have to try and keep calm until I fly out to Boulder. I always get crazy excited before every trip, but for some reason this trip has really got me pumped up. I just can not wait to go hiking, have some fun and meet some amazing bloggers.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite way to make tofu?
