i did it! i made what i planned out, which was steak and tofu stir fry. (i don’t eat pork/beef, but my boyfriend does.) when i arrived at home after work, i preheated the oven for 400 degrees, lightly basted them in olive oil, and baked the tofu for 30 minutes (flipping them after 15 minutes). while the tofu was baking, i diced up the steak and marinated it in a soy ginger chili garlic marinade. i let the steak sit in the marinade while i cooked the brown rice and diced up the veggies. when there was approximately 10 minutes left of baking the tofu, i started cooking the steak and veggies.
it was easier than i thought it was going to be. and while i was making dinner, i popped in some edamame into the microwave to snack on. i get home late and needed a snack while dinner was en route.
overall it was simple. i liked the fact that i knew what to prepare and had all the ingredients. we’ll see how the rest of the week pans out!
