Happy Friday blogging world! Why am I in such a good mood? Well, as previously stated it is FRIDAY and I was able to get out of the office early. However, the big thing is that I am meeting a friend for drinks later that I haven’t seen in ages. It felt surreal but this morning I woke up and found a message on my phone from someone I haven’t talked to in years. She and I were very close at one time but then she fell in love and our time together decreased more and more until before I realized it we had gone months without talking. The really tragic thing is that I was so busy with work and my silly interests that I barely noticed when the communication stopped. I was acutely aware when things started to decline but I was happy for her and just trusted that when the honeymoon phase ended we would reconnect again. We didn’t and I didn’t reach out like I should have. How many other great people have I let just slowly leave my life because I either assumed things would work themselves out or I let myself get too busy or it was just too hard to try and stay in touch when it felt like I was doing all of the work? I hope not too many but I suspect it has been more people that I want to admit. But for today I am happy to spend a little time with an old friend.
Since I am leaving in a couple of hours I have decided to make a quick little dinner of spring rolls with spaghetti squash. An odd combination I’m sure but so were Kelly and I at one time
1 slice extra firm tofu cut into match sticks
1 cup roasted spaghetti squash
2 teaspoons agave nectar
1 tablespoon tamari
8 Spring Roll Wraps
1/3 cucumber cut into thick match sticks
½ avacado cut into slices
½ cup carrots cut into match sticks
1. Sautee tofu in agar nectar and tamari until a caramelized glaze covers the tofu
2. After the tofu and roasted spaghetti squash have cooked, prepare the wraps by dipping in very warm water. I use two wraps per roll, most people use one but for me I don’t like the look of just one.
3. Add a little of the tofu, squash, avacad, and carrots to a couple of rolls and wrap
4. Eat with a little sweet and sour or peanut sauce. Yummy.
