Big Z: 7 Months.

Seriously? Seven Months has come and gone. I can't tell you where the time went.  All I know is that everyday, I love her more and more.  Everyday, her personality grows, along with her curiosity, beauty and mind.

Baked Tofu (and Chicken)

So, I was watching "The Chew" last week (I have discovered this thing called daytime TV!!!) and they featured a chicken recipe that looked tasty... so I modified it, and made both chicken & tofu!!

I added equal amounts of mayonnaise & sour cream, covered the chicken/tofu in it then covered with fresh grated Parmesan,  Japanese breadcrumbs, fresh garlic and some herbs from my garden.
Baked @ 350 for 45 mins.

Served with steamed asparagus and brown rice.
