It’s snowing here, so pretty and quiet, and oh soooooo cold!!! I began daydreaming about our ride to Bali a number of years ago, which now, while I appear back, truly replaced our life in a sure direction. It was throughout that ride we learned that we might be “ok”, dwelling a additional easy life, with tons less “things”, in a smaller house, so as to work tons less (catering) and spend additional time doing issues that truly fed our souls.
We have been in Bali a month, and while we got area we placed our area for sale, got rid of two-thirds of our “stuff” and moved into our apartment area that was half of the size. We eventually stopped catering ( I had essential burnout) over the subsequent year.
This morning, I appear out my huge window today, in my tiny house, on the pretty falling snow and truly sense highly content. It turns out, it doesn’t take a lot to make my coronary middle completely glad – food, shelter, and an enormous window wherein to look at nature work its magic. So it’s what I suppose about, while I suppose about Bali. How completely glad of us appeared there, dwelling so simply. Oh… and of course, the Peanut Sauce!!!
It is so yummy! And especially nice baked over tofu.
While the Peanut tofu and candy potatoes are baking, make the black rice and prep the recent veggies! Shredding cabbage on a mandolin is nice, match stick carrots, grated beets, sliced snap peas – use what ever raw crunchy veggies you like.
And sprouts! Nutty flavored sunflower sprouts make everything happy. They grown proper proper here locally in greenhouses, even in mid-winter, and are simply learned at our mainstream grocery shops so appear for them!
The tofu will pop out flavorful and reasonably crispy!
Then gather the bowls! I desire to region the peanut sauce proper within the middle…but do as you please.
Add recent radishes for crunch and avocado for additional heartiness should you like.
Such a easy meal that makes my physique truly sense alive and energized. Give it a pass this week and permit me understand what you think!!!
