This afternoon, Mal and I received the best anniversary card in the mail from my mom. It pretty much sums up our marriage! 😉
Inside, it says: “Making faces behind the back of whoever’s acting childish helps, too.”
Mal and I are always acting childish and goofy together. I swear, we act like we’re 5-years-old most of the time! 😉 But, hey, lots of laugher makes for a great marriage, right?
I tried something new for lunch today: Buffalo Tofu. I could have sworn I saw a recipe on Mama Pea’s blog for it, but maybe it was on a someone else’s blog? I searched a few of the likely suspects (Healthy Tipping Point, Fitnessista, How Sweet It Is), but came up with nothing. In the end, I just winged-it and did my own thing.
I pressed my tofu overnight, sliced it into half-inch slabs, poured some buffalo sauce on it, and let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes before pan-frying the pieces in olive oil. It seemed to work pretty well! 😉 (If anyone knows what recipe I am talking about, feel free to send it my way!)
I added the Buffalo Tofu to an arugula salad with carrots, tomatoes, celery, scallions, and crumbled Athenos feta.
For “dessert,” I enjoyed a very ripe peach. It was now or never with this baby! It was definitely on its last day. The skin was all wrinkly.
I’m heading to the gym next. My hip is pretty sore from yesterday, so I’m planning to keep my workout low-key with time on the elliptical and some serious stretching afterward.
P.S. I have a fun surprise coming this evening! I’m finally going to reveal what I was doing in New York City a few weeks ago!
my husband and i are SUCH KIDS. now that everyone we know has babies, we’re acting more childish than ever!
My mom does the same thing with our cards–labels the boy my husband and the girl me. As if I needed help figuring that out! Ha ha.
Kath has a great BBQ tofu recipe that I’ve used a bunch of times. Maybe that’s what you were thinking of. I <3 tofu!
Perfect card for you two. 🙂
I think the website might be Iowagirleats.com
SUCH a cute card!
I hate it when I don’t know where a recipe or an idea is from. I always want to give the person credit. Looks like you found your suspect though 🙂
awww that card is too cute!!!!
And love that lunch….YUM!
Laughter makes every marriage better. If you can’t laugh with each other then your not doing it right.
I’m seriously in love with your food ideas!
I’ll be trying this soon.
yes definitely laughter is the key! Except when you start fighting over who’s funnier . . . it’s not much of a fight though, since I’m the hilarious one, hahahaha 🙂

Australian unknowingness here – what is buffalo sauce?? The tofu looks darn tasty, but I have no idea how I could replicate it as I’ve never heard of that sauce before!
That card is adorable! I love that there was even a little Murphy dog on it! Too fun!
Yay, I’m reading the NYC post right now! That card is just WAY too cute. I love the little Murphy on it – did she stick it on herself?!
