Creamy Tofu on Tuesday

Cardio Tuesday
Wow, Monday's are a piece of cake compared to coming back to work after an amazing 3-day weekend. I think we should have been allowed to just work a half day to sort ease back into things. Anyone else agree?

Needless to day, there was most definitely no morning workout. It was about 90 degrees by 11:15, so no lunchtime run either. I ended up doing part of of Cathe's Cardio Fusion though. I wasn't super excited about a step workout, so I compromised with this one as it includes a variety of step workouts, "blasts," and boot camp style exercises. I was only able to do about 45 minutes of it though as I had to get back to work. It was hard making myself stop, because I was actually having a lot of fun and time was flying by.

More Creamy Tofu
I was really indecisive about dinner. I feel a bit scattered to be honest. We leave Saturday morning for the beach, and I feel like I have so much to do to get ready: running errands, packing, cleaning, using up fresh produce, etc. I am making list after list. Just call me The List Queen.

Jason, however, was not indecisive about dinner. He requested the Rotini with Creamy Lemon Sauce for dinner (or lemon pasta as he calls it). I had half a package of silken tofu open from the potato salad, so this worked out well. Only problem...no rotini or penne. All I had was whole-wheat angel hair past, so dinner was Angel Hair with Creamy Lemon Sauce (original recipe here).

This is really a super simple recipe. You can add in or trade out veggies easily. I think asparagus would be really great and possibly roasted red bell peppers too.
