I love three-day weekends, really I do. Even when I have a lot of studying to do-(orgo test tomorrow and three next week) they're just so pleasant!
Tried two new foods today which was very exciting! For lunch I made a soy-noodle stirfry. I love wandering around the Asian grocery stores and finding new (sometimes crazy) foods to try! Last week I snagged a pouch of soy-noodles, which is basically just tofu formed into noodle shapes.
It packs a huge protein punch (50g in the entire package??!!) but tastes quite bland. So I heated it with tamarind paste, Thai chilis, a bit of Braggs liquid aminos (it goes on everything I eat) and beet juice. Random, but quite tasty!! I don't know if the "noodles" were good enough to garner a second purchase, but they were fun to try!
This evening I met with the rest of the Slow Food planning committee, and since I picked up Brown-Rice Mochi at Whole Foods today, (Its been catching my eye) I thought I'd share! We tried the Cinnamon-Raisin flavor (because I LOVE raisins and sweet things). The only ingredients are Organic Sweet Brown Rice, raisins, cinnamon and sea salt! According to the package they are "delicious, easy and fun to prepare!" I'd have to agree with all three! They are fool-proof- all you have to do is cut the sheet into little squares, pop them in the oven for 10 minutes and they puff right up! I was quite shocked!

So adorable! Ok enough food rambling, and back to studying!
