In an effort to use up some of the leftovers from this week, I am pushing back the snack action until tomorrow. Okay. Truthfully, it's also because I'm a huge procrastinator. I planned to make stuff all week so all I'd have to do is upload photos, but the day is here and I have nothing to show for it. Boo to that.
Instead I made tofu migas with ingredients I had on hand. Ain't no party like a pantry raid party, cuz a pantry raid party don't stop! Also...brinner! I had potatoes from Sunday's brunch, beans from last night's dinner, and corn tortillas that I bought...honestly, I don't know how long ago. Migas are pretty much a throw all the leftovers into one pot and make with the eating type of thing. In Texas we traditionally have corn tortilla strips, jalapeno, onion, tomato, cilantro, and eggs. Sometimes there's pico de gallo in place of the tomatoes and cilantro. You can put whatever veggies you want in there, though.
For my tofu, I sauteed onion and corn tortilla strips in some oil. When the tortillas were starting to brown and crisp, I threw in the tofu. Then added garlic, black salt, sea salt, pepper, and cumin. Finally, I put the tomatoes in to heat through and mixed in the cilantro.
I've never seen migas served alone. Anytime I see them on a menu the plate usually contains refried beans, potatoes, and flour tortillas. I am Texan to the core and I love me some flour tortillas! Corn and whole wheat are all good and fine, but give me the unbleached AP flour kind. Mmm. Tortillas. Sorry, I'm getting off topic. So I made Eddie G's veganized version of his grandma's tortillas because I love those things.
My plate starting at 12 o'clock: tofu migas, flour tortillas, potatoes with ketchup and hot sauce (didn't have Tapatio so Crystal's had to do), refried beans with teese, and mashed avocado.
This was free because I had everything on hand. If you had to purchase all the ingredients, it wouldn't be a big deal. So this is definitely cheap eats!
Now it's SUPER HAPPY REVIEW TIME*!
World Market Chili and Lime Dark Chocolate Bar-For once, the lime flavor doesn't overwhelm. It kinda underwhelms. I could barely taste it. It was subtle enough to make the bar taste a little like plastic. I can't explain it. The only way I'd be able to eat this is in a cookie and only if the flavor was deeply masked.
World Market Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bar-I had my doubts, but this was so good! The salt isn't just in the background. It works equally with the chocolate. It's like eating a chocolate covered pretzel...but without all that pretzel action getting in the way. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
So Delicious Coconut Milk Original Flavor-It's super creamy, but it tastes...gummy...to me. It's also so thick that it reminds me of real milk so I don't really like it. I think it would make amazing ice cream and be great in place of cream, but I can't justify paying over 4 dollars for something that I couldn't just drink.
Whole Soy & Co Frozen Yogurt Vanilla Bean Flavor-I just happened upon this in the store the other day. They make my favorite yogurt so I was very intrigued when I saw the ice cream. It wasn't until I got it home that I realized it was frozen yogurt. My initial impression was that it tasted too much like soy, but it grew on me. It was like crack! I blame the vanilla beans. It doesn't firm up too much in the freezer either. I'd definitely try it again with another flavor to see if I like it.

Well, that's all I have. I'm going to bed. So tired.
