Good recipes to share with friends.
This recipe has been a long-time potluck standby for me. I’m actually surprised that I haven’t posted it yet. The marinated tofu has a lovely, punchy flavour and all the veggies make for a great party of colour and taste.
It’s kind of like autumn, isn’t it? The colours of the salad are like all the colourful leaves blanketing the ground and crunching underfoot while walking through the crisp air. I always swoon over the change of seasons, as a new and exhilarating time of year unveils itself.
I was marvelling just the other day at autumn’s bookends. At the beginning, every single place on earth experiences a day that is nearly as long as its night. Everywhere. But at the other end, certain places have weeks of darkness and others weeks of light, while the more equatorial regions have the same even division of the two extremes. I mean, if you think about it, it’s kind of neat.
What’s even more remarkable is how we humans have managed to spread out all around this Earth and adapted to these challenging and practically inhospitable places. I guess we can’t all have homes in the tropics. Plus, we’d miss out on neat things, like Christmas trees, reindeers and Saskatoon berries.
But, because of the magics of the Internet, we don’t need to miss out on a single thing, especially cool music. Bad Cop are a cool group of guys just making some really sweet tunes. They’re cool, and you can pick up on some of that vibe with their video for “Animal”.
