Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry

I have a new addiction.

Watching makeup tutorial videos. One of my best friends showed me this one and then I recently found this one. They areso addicting! And a perfect 5-10 minute break from the horrors wonders of studying Advanced Nutrition for 4 days straight.

And now, every morning when I put on my makeup, I think about those people. How they contour their noses and how they do the “3 shape” on their cheekbones, and how they have the defined brow and all these things. So the people in my classes probably think I’m a crazy person because I come in with light smokey eyes or massively long lashes. Just, go with it, people.

I mean, who wants to start their trial and error and learning process the NIGHT OF going out?? No way! You look like a clown. These are the practice periods. During class, when I have to run to the market [speaking of: Walmart now has a market, hence “Walmarket”], and just the usual day-to-day activities. Basically, I’m just gracing you with my beauty (HAH!).

Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry
Adapted from Vegetarian Times

7 oz extra firm tofu (1/2 carton), drained, pressed, and cubed.
3 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of black pepper and ginger
1 c brown rice
1 medium-sized red onion, roughly chopped
1 bell pepper, julienned
1 c sugar snap peas
2 scallions, diced
1/4 c raw cashews

Sauce:
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 orange

1. Over medium high heat, add oil and tofu to skillet and cook, stirring and turning over, until brown on all sides. Depending on the temperature, this can take anywhere from 10-20 minute (also depending on how brown and crispy you want it).
2. Cook brown rice according to directions.
3. For the stir fry, make the sauce by combining it in a bowl. Pour onto skillet over medium high heat, then add vegetables. Cook until softened but still crunchy, stirring frequently, about 5-10 minutes.
4. Add tofu back into stir fry pan, then serve all over brown rice and top with scallions and cashews.

    Ahaha you are hilarious and I want to eat this. I’ve been craving tofu nonstop lately. Speaking of videos and completely related to nothing else, I just watched this and couldn’t stop laughing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqebEymqFS8&feature=player_embedded Maybe it’s not supposed to be that funny? He seems like he has a good sense of humor.

    Anyhoo DO YOU READ FASHION BLOGS?! I’ve been trying to get into some but I only know a handful. Also remember that one time we had brunch? I thought your make up looked awesome. Gracing your classmates with your beauty? True story!

      Hah! Just watched that video. Love it. And I don’t read fashion blogs… I have given up on ever being fashionable. The extent of my fashion viewing is on Pinterest haha. And I do remember that brunch! Casual. And thanks! That was pre-experimental makeup, so hopefully I will continue to broaden my knowledge and expertise. If you find any fashion blogs, keep me posted!
