Tofu in Garlic Sauce |

You know those mornings when you wake up and suddenly realize that:

… have a long list of things to do and things to buy but not a piece of a thing to wear???

….you have one business e-mail…ONE! that you failed to send last night because you fell asleep right on the keyboard..

….and you wake up and find out you have keyboard marks all-over your face..

…and that you only slept for four hours last night…

…and aside from the fact that you have lots of things to do, you are running late for work.

You remember having one of those days?

I’m having one of them except I don’t have those keyboard marks on my face, hee. I made that one up.

I did fail to send an e-mail which is really important.

Oh well,

I usually eat a bag of cookies or m&m’s to turn these kinds of days around

but I don’t have a m&m’s and I have no time to make cookies…

Thank God for easy recipes like this which you can whip up in 15 minutes flat.
