Peanutty Noodles

Another hot day, so I made cold Spicy Peanut Noodles with whole wheat spaghetti, microwaved broccoli, and microwaved tofu, tossed with the last of the Spicy Peanut Sauce.

Zucchini Salad

I also microwaved some zucchini and summer squash, cooled them off under tap water and tossed them with the last of the Mustard Vinaigrette.

I made a tossed salad with lettuce, cuke, shredded raw beet, and chopped mini sweet peppers, and for a dressing I used up the tofu leftover from the Ice Cream and added olive oil, a little white vinegar (that might have been a mistake), a little brown sugar (that was definitely a mistake), and some fresh basil, oregano, and chives, and salt and pepper.  I ground that up in a blender, needed to add some water, and it was pretty good.  The sugar seemed like a weird idea but I was sort of vaguely following a Veganomicon recipe that called for it – I was able to cover it up with salt and save the day.

Everything was very good, and nice and cool.
