I noticed you have tofu on your grocery list. I haven't brought myself to try the stuff yet. But I've been told it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it or use it with. So, do you have a favorite tofu recipe that is really, truly good? If so, would you mind sharing it with me? I'm willing to try tofu and so is my husband so I'd like to find a recipe somebody has made and knows it's good.

Hope you have a great week!

Stir fry sounds yummy, and pizza night sounds fun! I should try that - I always just end up making "pizza" using tortillas :) Laziness at its best.

Pizza nights are so fun - everyone loves picking out their own toppings! I'm having one this week, too. :)

Ok, I'm going to try to plan this week. I already know in my head what I'm making but I'm going to write it down this time! I finally remembered to take something out of the freezer today! Loaded potatoes sound good!
