Back to the grind, how do you use Blue Cheese?!

A bit of a cold spell yesterday and this morning caused me to turn on my Mr. Buddy during breakfast. Oh well, back to 70s tomorrow and hopefully I can put it away underneath my bed for the summer.

This week has flown by! We got back from TX on Tuesday, I slept for a bit, did some laundry and then went to Treman State Park to scout out some trails for this next segment. It was a beautiful day and I treated myself to one of the new non-dairy Halo Top ice creams. I tried the candy bar flavor and TBH it’s not as good as the salted caramel. Good thing it was on sale. I also think that maybe I’m not an ice cream person. I enjoy it I guess, but I don’t crave it like most people, or even get super excited for it. I think I should feel that way (especially after a hot marathon) but I got it and was like meh, it’s fine but whatever. Maybe it just needed sprinkles.

The rest of the week I spent getting back into my groove with work and catching up on such things for Agava. We’ve got a whole new menu that I need to get online, and photos to take to promote it. The new stuff is pretty bomb if I don’t say so myself. Chef really did a great job.

Yesterday was my day off from CTB in which I work at the gym in the morning, and usually hit Agava for photos later that night. In between I took myself out for lunch at Greenstar. I got Spicy Garlic Tofu and Pad Thai. Both were tasty! I enjoy the different ways tofu can be incorporated into things and the versatility of it. Makes me wish I had a kitchen to cook it for myself.

I also got the new Daiya Blue Cheese dressing to try. It is very reminiscent of blue cheese, but besides buffalo sauce stuff, I have no idea what to use it for. Considering I don’t have buffalo tofu or hot sauce very often, I need some ideas or ways to use it. Help a sister out!

After that I went to my parent’s house to visit (haha they weren’t home) and pick up my mail. I had a bill from the gynecologist that I knew I needed to pay, but also came home to a lovely package from Emily containing peanut butter from Naturally Nutty. What a kind gift! I cannot wait to try it.

Then I went to Agava, caught up on work there and took photos. I ended the night with dinner and a crossword in my van. Oh, and I tried to get 10 hours of sleep. It was wonderful.

Breakfast: peaches and cream (yup, from the box) oatmeal with raspberries, nuts and almond butter

Running: 78 minutes

  1. Can’t help you out on the blue cheese dilemma… I wouldn’t touch that stuff with a foot long pole.

    Tofu though. I was just having a conversation with a friend last night about tofu, and how we love getting it out in restaurants (or even packaged items) because of the texture they seem to be able to grasp – nothing like I can ever do at home. Texture is such a big part of it for me. And the sauces. Just never the same at home. You’ve made seitan before right? That’s still on my list.
