The one thing I love about cooking dinner at home each night is LEFTOVERS for lunch the next day. This past year I have finally realized how much money I save by not eating lunch out each day – if you aren’t doing it, hop on the train and enjoy a huge infusion of $$$ in your wallet. Since Jason works from home, I get to grab up each night’s left overs.
Last night we made a tofu, veggie and rice stirfry. Stirfrys are by far my favorite meal to make and eat as leftovers. It’s such a simple meal. We did make a homemade marinade for the tofu which was dang good.
Jason’s Special Tofu Marinade:
3 tbsp Water
3 tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tbsp for fresh ginger (minced very fine)
3 cloves of garlic (minced very fine)
1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (or rice wine vinegar would work)
2 scallions finely chopped
Mix all this together and then marinade tofu for at least 30 minutes. I poured excess marinade on the veggies and tofu while they were stir frying as well.
