One of my go-to weekday meals is stir fry. It's a bit old school, I know; but being such a quick + healthful meal with limitless versatility, it has stayed with me through the years.

And tofu is a great protien, particularly if you find it hard to completely omit meat from your diet. Due to the similarities in texture, it's a great substitute. And tofu takes on whatever flavors it's cooked with; so, if you're stir fry does include a meat, it's a good extender.

Draining your tofu is key to stir frying.

I simply place my block of tofu in a lined collander and place a couple of large cans on top. Let it sit for 30 minutes to allow the liquid to drain.

I then cut my tofu into 1" cubes and stir fry in peanut oil. Once golden, add a little toasted sesame oil, a chopped garlic clove, & a tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds. Cook and aditional minute then set aside. Next, stir fry whatever fresh vege's you have on hand in the same manner. Lastly, I like to add a dash of soy for flavoring.

So quick & easy!

And see how I stored my leftovers?

With my Bee's Wrap! 

On Wednesday I shared with you my love/hate relationship with plastic storage containers in the kitchen and my search for a food-safe alternative (The Bee's Knees - A Natural Alternative to Plastic Wrap). This product is such an amazing alternative.

I love the sweet smell of the beeswax and how the cloth conforms just by the warmth of my hands. I love that Bee's Wraps are a natural food-safe alternative; and I love that they can be re-used over & over again. Sarah says it so perfectly, "Bee's Wrap is an old fashioned solution that feels miraculous in the modern world!" So true. Before the advent of plastic wrap, this process of storing perishables was what our ancestors used.

And today I'm excited to announce that Bee's Wrap is offering a chance for you to win a set of  wraps for your very own! Yay! One lucky winner will receive the popular three-size set (one 7 x 8", one 10 x 11", and one 13 x 14" wrap). This set is the perfect start from which to build your collection - of which I am sure you will once you try them!
