VIDEO: Which One of us is The Bad Influence? + Soy Free Tofu Recipe

For the first time in a LONG time, I had time to just noodle around and play in the studio this weekend. I chose not to spend ANY of that time on household chores, and I will defend that decision. If you know me, it's pretty weird for me not to spend my days off work cooking for the next week, but I just didn't. The freezer is going to need to provide for us this week.

Also, speaking of food, I was looking on Instacart last night, now that the weather is better and grilling sounds good, and I thought maybe ribs might be fun, now that I found a new BBQ sauce I like almost as much as my own.

And you will not believe what I saw. A SINGLE rack of ribs is THIRTY DOLLARS AT HEB. Food is getting crazy. Needless to say, we will not be having ribs any time soon. Time to eat some beans. To that end, I'm including a recipe I'll be trying later in the week. Perfect if you're allergic to soy, like I am, but miss tofu.

When I was in pre-school, I had a little friend named Scarlet. We were so tight. And, as a result, we got in trouble OFTEN. Not anything bad, just talking and laughing too much. God knows we can't have that. She was one of the very few people in my life I was willing to share food with - that has always grossed me out. I'm not one of those people who will eat off someone else's plate, or have them eat off mine. I know too much haha. But very frequently, Scarlet and I would split our lunches with each other. Back then, everyone packed a lunch, and the status symbol was your lunchbox - metal lunchboxes with images from popular TV shows, mostly. And they got rusty! And our thermoses had glass liners and frequently that glass broke, because kids. GenX realities. We mostly ate soup and sandwiches on the playground, specifically on the merry-go-round - I actually don't remember a picnic table there - we all just sat wherever. VERY rarely did we eat inside - only if it was raining. 

So Scarlet and I would scheme about various things and be highly wound up when we headed back in for the nap time that followed lunch. That was NOT a good combo, because we were not nearly done giggling and chattering. Hence, the trouble. I haven't forgotten you, Scarlet Coy - wherever you are! So today's card is for her. 

The background was created with this stencil and some gel printing, which you will see in a video in a few weeks. 

For the foreground, I stamped the pig in no-line coloring ink, and colored the pig image with markers, which you'll see in the video - nothing fancy, easy way to do reverse shading. 

Then I stamped and die cut the sentiments in the set. As you'll see in the video, I was going to go a different direction, but I didn't. The complementary colors are perfect for each other! A few sequins for garnish. I love how it looks like this piggy friend has been out doing graffiti in alleys with his bad influence friend :).

So here is the magical soy-free tofu I'll be trying this week. After I make it, I'm going to try a crispy peanut tofu recipe I've been eyeing. If it works out, I'll share it after I try it!

Hope you have a great week! Loveyameanitbye.
