I hope you’ve had a good day. I woke up bright and early for work this morning, and then decided to hit the trail for a brisk 3 mile run. Except it didn’t work out that way. Do you ever feel like you’re just not into exercising? I mean, my mind was set on running, but my legs just did not want to cooperate. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow.
Anyway onto the tasty:
Baked Sesame Tofu:
16 oz brick of firm tofu
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs.
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.
Take the tofu and wrap it in several layers of paper towels. Gently squeeze the water from the tofu.
Cut the tofu into 4 even pieces.
Combine the panko, sesame seeds, chili powder, salt and pepper, and mix thoroughly.
Press the tofu into the bread crumb mixture, making sure to coat all of the sides of the tofu.
Place the tofu on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, and serve with your favorite roasted veggie. I used asparagus because it was in season at the time, but any veggie you’re craving will do.

Honestly, I love tofu. I wasn’t a huge fan at first but I keep finding new and interesting ways to eat it. And this recipe is great for the tofu novice. Don’t be shy! I promise you’ll like it.
Okay, and now for the sinful.
I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of this. But, they were just way too delicious, and I couldn’t stop myself from eating them long enough to take a picture.
Are you ready for this?
It’s so ridiculously simple, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been stuffing random things into crescent rolls for years now.
All you need is:
1 tube of reduced fat crescent rolls
4 tbsp Nutella
Unroll the crescent rolls and place a generous dollop of the Nutella in the center.
Roll up the crescent roll, making sure to seal the ends. Mine ended up looking like little bundles.
Bake at 375 for 15 to 18 minutes.

Try not to burn your mouth on these delicious little morsels when they come out of the oven.
I know that it’s not the healthiest treat in the world. But sometimes you need to live a little. Variety is the spice of life you know.
Well, I’m off to relax and spend some time with the Bear before hitting the hay.
