We eat a lot of tofu! I use it in both sweet and savory dishes. That means I’m doing a lot of pressing, to squeeze the water out of the block of tofu. You probably saw the post here about the standard, low-tech way of pressing it. It works, but it’s messy and leaves me with a lot of stuff to wash. It also uses a lot of paper towels.
We love The Uprooted Kitchen Trailer (food truck?)!!! This is a family owned business, based in a 1968 vintage Avion trailer that specializes in vegetarian cuisine. It is owned by Chad and Erin Romanoff. Chad is a pediatric occupational therapist and Erin is a pastry chef. Their menu includes breakfast, lunch and any time fare. On Saturday’s they are at the Gilbert Farmer’s Market, which is where we discovered them. We had gone to the market to see what all was there, and, of course, looking at food makes you hungry!
The Kitchen Angel must have heard my plea last Friday! (See post here!) This has appeared in my kitchen. I received a brand new Vitamix 6300 with a 64 oz container! It came from Costco. Vitamix is doing demos of this new model in Costco Stores around the country. The savings is significant when purchased at the demo. Check the Costco schedule for your area to see if there will be one soon near you and save the date!
We attended the Gluten Free Foodie Tour at Nourish 123 Restaurant in Scottsdale! The event was organized by the restaurant and by Ken Scheer of Rock A Healthy Lifestyle. His website is a go-to location for living dairy and gluten free in the Phoenix Metro area. We started the evening with drinks. From left to right: Pear Cider, Crispin Apple Cider, and Cucumber Water. Crispin’s Hard Ciders are naturally fermented in the USA from fresh pressed apple-juice.
