I’m all moved in and I am still trying to find lost kitchen boxes that never made their way here and are still at my parents’ place being held hostage. Things like my mixing bowls, my scale, and my candy thermometer. A very necessary box!
We don’t have a lot of kitchen space and we’re in the process of still buying things so we don’t have a toaster, good knives (or any knife other than a butter knife), and salt and pepper shakers. The George Foreman grill is actually getting some good use and buttered grilled bread in the morning is fabulous. Maybe we won’t need the toaster after all!
Baking has been non-existent. My plan for when I moved in was that I would clean for a little bit, make time to walk down to get some beer, bake a little something, and perhaps make a meal for Movie Man. I was under the impression that all my kitchen things would fit in one trip with the car. Meals haven’t been extravagant as I just recently got a table to help with the 2 feet of counterspace I have. I’m trying to find storage solutions for all my kitchen wares and food. It seems one cabinet for all our food belongings just isn’t enough.
My first homemade meal was a delicious scrambled egg sandwich:
Tonight I was finally able to use the Christmas gift our friends gave us when I made Asian Marinated tofu:
This is from Vegan with a Vengeance and it also makes a repeat appearance in Veganomicon. It is also one of my fave dishes to make because I love the sauce so much. I save the sauce and add a thickener such as flour or cornstarch and cook it on the stove top to thicken.by
