This is my favorite picture from April. These are two seats at the new Yankees Stadium. I love heading to baseball games with my husband and baseball season means summer is just around the corner. As an added bonus, the new stadium as cup holders at every seat - even the nose-bleed section!
Participate in your favorite free activity and take a picture. I've got a lot of favorite activities and many of them are free. My favorite April activity? Riding my new bike! Luckily, for this challenge free is defined as “things you don’t spend money on to participate in right then,” so the cost of my new bike doesn't count!
April Food Challenge: Favorite Recipe
For the April Food Challenge on That Wife, you just have to make your favorite dish, take a picture, and share the recipe with the readers at That Wife.
There are many meals that I love to make but one of my favorites is "Sam's Tofu Bean Salad." We made this recipe up based on a cold bean salad that Sam had at Caribou Coffee in the Minneapolis Airport. We adapt the recipe based on what we have in the house at the time. Sometimes we use chick peas instead of black beans, sometimes we add different vegetables.
Sam's Tofu Bean Salad
1 package extra firm tofu
2 cans diced tomatoes (15 oz)
2 cans black beans (15 oz)
corn (2-3 ears of fresh corn is best)
red and green bell peppers
seasonings (salt, pepper, Italian blend, garlic, Tabasco sauce)
Chop of the veggies and the tofu and poor everything into a pot. Mix together and let it simmer for 20 - 40 minutes and add additional seasoning as desired. The longer you cook it the thicker it will get. When the taste and consistency is to your liking then you're done! I love this meal because it is super versatile. It can be eaten hot or cold, as an entree or a side dish. Plus, its full of protein, fiber and fresh veggies! As Rachel Ray would say, Yum-mo!
