I am a true food lover and I happen to be a vegetarian too. I want to share fun food facts and recipes with you and I love creating new recipes. I enjoy knowing about what I put into my body each day. The food that fuels my life is amazing.
I hope I can convince you that food isn't just something you have to eat everyday. It's fun too!

LA tofu festival 2007
Yesterday was my second year at the annual Tofu Festival in Little Tokyo, LA. This year I was accompanied by the lovely and always adorable Cara :)
Festivities began a little on the wild side with a "tofu margarita". I'm not sure how we ending up sampling this one.
Tofu margarita? Not so much unfortunately.
However, the tofu tostadas were very flavorful. Cara and I have decided that we must learn how to replicate them :)
The orange flavored tofu was good but not very memorable. I would have enjoyed this more with a little rice served with it. But for 1 buck, can't really complain can you?
I had to have at least ONE picture of my nerdy, food loving self chowing down at the tofu festival. Wow I must have enjoyed that orange tofu more than I remembered :)
To deal with the stifling heat we meandered into a tented area with a refreshment.
We got these strawberry slushies made with REAL strawberries in them and cooled off for a bit.
Little did we know we walked right into the TOFU EATING CONTEST. We just had to stay and watch the insanity.
Feeling quite refreshed after watching half an hour of tofu eating madness, we headed back out into the eat in venture of more foods.
My final dish was a safe pick- Pad See Ew. This is one of my favorite thai dishes and I was excited that they offered it this year.
I am so happy that I decided to make the trek to LA a 2nd year for this event. I've officially decided that this is something I must do every year- a new tradition per say :).
