Where I've Been and Scrambled Tofu

I saw this map over at Molly's and Michelle's place. It's a map of all the states that I have visited so far. I thought Molly's and Michelle's was cool, so I just had to go do one of my own. If you would like to do a map of all the places that you have traveled go here. Looks like I have visited 20 states so far. Some we just basically drove thru. How cool would it be to be able to go visit each state? That's something that I would love to do. I wonder if I could get a years worth of paid vacation to do

Maggie wanted to say Hi to everyone! This is how she sits every night while I am cooking supper. She is staring into the kitchen as I cook. Do you suppose she is hungry? It seems like as more time passes she ends up sitting mostly on her back. She gets spasms in her back legs and they will just pop up in the air. Poor baby! The vet said the spasms are because the nerve around her tail bone is getting pinched and as it becomes more inflamed it causes spasms. :(

Last night for dinner I made some scrambled tofu and it was yummy! I sauteed 1/2 bell pepper (chopped), 1 celery stalk (minced), 1/2 onion (chopped), and 2 cloves of garlic (minced) in some olive oil for about 10 minutes. After about 10 minutes, I added a portobello mushroom (chopped), drained firm tofu, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric, 1/4 teaspoon of cumin, and enough salt and pepper to taste. After that had cooked for about 10 minutes I added a little nutritional yeast and cooked it a little longer. I can't get over how much it actually looks like scrambled eggs. :o)

Tomorrow is the big announcement for the winner of the Country Bob's sauce....YAY. You still have time to get in the drawing if you would like to do so. Just go here, and tell me what you would like to put the sauce on.

There's another giveaway that you can get in on too over at LaceyLovesFood. She is giving away a copy of The Happy Herbivore. I've heard it's a great cookbook. It's actually the next cookbook that I hope to get. :o)



  1. You've been around! It's so much fun seeing everyone's maps. Hopefully we both get to all the states eventually!

    Poor Maggie. :( Did the vet suggest anything that you can do to relieve her discomfort?

    The scramble looks delicious!

  2. That scrambled tofu looks gooooooood! <3 yum!

    Hello maggie! feel better little cutie!! <3

  3. You've got the southern states covered, and well on your way to all 50!

    Give cute Maggie a big hug from me. Your scramble looks delish.

  4. Oh, I'm so sorry Maggie has to be in such pain to be so darn cute. By the way, what is the dark green veggie in your scramble?

  5. Looks delicious. I find that exercise is the best remedy for pinched nerves/spasms.

  6. I'm missing NC from my southern states map, too. And I hope as you learn what's paining Maggie you can help her feel better.

    I love scrambled tofu for supper! Yours looks great with all those veggies mixed in.

  7. Molly, the vet has Maggie on Rimadyl for the inflammation. I also give her pet health. The winter months seem to be harder because she's not outside to get much exercise. She doesn't like the cold. :o)

    Blessedmama, the dark green veggie is frozen spinach...I was all out of fresh. :(
