Disclaimer: I am not super great at cooking but I TRY and that has to count for something. I had a meeting this evening, but as I’d done weights earlier today, I wanted to make a proteiny dinner when I got home. I’d just bought all the stuff for tofu stir fry, and since that generally turns out okay, I rolled up my sleeves and set to it.
I went through my fridge and grabbed all the vegetables I thought would work. (Please forgive the iPod photos, they were faster.)
In the process, I ended up overestimated the amount of veggies I needed—which I had previously though impossible—and ended up having to cook more pasta to compensating, resulting in just far too much of everything, which was ridiculous.
I drained my tofu and cooked my veggies, dropping boiling olive oil on my foot in the process (A+ kitchen safety) in addition to making a massive amount of mess…
I almost burned the veggies, then ended up having to pull out a separate pan for the noodles, which had been in a colander so long that they were all stuck together, so I poured an excessive amount of sauce on them in an attempt to fix the problem, then dumped the veggies and tofu in the pasta.
The veggies didn’t cook down enough and as I’d put the sauce in before them, it all soaked into the noodles and didn’t get on the veggies or the tofu, and nothing really mixed—the result looked like this.
Speaking of good for me, I’m determined to get back on my bedtime schedule after bending it slightly over the past couple days to read and watch Sherlock (I’m so glad it’s back!), so I’m going to head off and get ready for that.
