Snow Day!

Why call it a snowpacalpse when you can call it a blizzard?

Snow Coma
Post lunch nap

Last Friday, both our offices closed, and the snow coming down, we hunkered down and only ventured out for some provisions. Aaron got it into his head that he wanted some Vietnamese "Hoagies" He can say that having lived in Philly for a while. So we made homemade pickles and toasted up some bread. They came out pretty decent!

Vietnamese Sandwiches

1 package Extra firm tofu, sliced thin and fried
2 hero rolls
Cucumbers, sliced
Siracha Hot Sauce

For the pickles:
1/4 cup white or rice vinegar
2 tablespoons, give or take, sugar
2 carrots grated
daikon, grated if you can find it, we just had carrots

Combine the grated veggies with the vinegar and sugar and let sit for at least 2 hours.

Toast the heroes. Put butter on both sides and let melt. Put on mayonnaise to taste, add layer up your other ingredients. Enjoy!

Lasagna Coma
That was pretty good, I will try to stay awake.

Making a huge lasagna on a Sunday is a great way to get ready for the week and save money on lunch. Especially for me, midtown lunches are not cheap! My lasagna is just a mess of veggies and cheeses.


Half a box of Lasagna Noodles, boiled
1 container ricotta
1 package mozzarella
1 jar of tomato sauce
Basil leaves
Stuff to put in it: I use mushrooms sauteed with cumin, zucchini, spinach, eggplant, fennel, and onions

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Layer it all up! Bake for 45min - 60 min or until the cheeses are melted and browned on top and the sauce is bubbling. Let sit for 15 minutes. Cut and Serve!
