My favorite snack
I am all out of words today, so instead I will write down a recipe:

Grilled tofu:

Take 2 firm tofu cakes
Cut it in slices the width of your finger. If you have big man-hands, make your slices a bit smaller. If you have waify bone-fingers, allow for more width. (do not cut your finger. This is a vegetarian recipe).

make a marinade with the following:
A tbsp lemon zest (if lemon is not organic,wash the lemon with soap and rinse it first. Lemons have loads of bug spray on them.)

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp grated ginger

lots of tamari--enough to cover bottom of container, but not enough so that you have to run out tomorrow and buy a new bottle (or soy sauce in a pinch, but less of it, and water it down with a bit).

Chinese chili sauce or cayenne pepper to taste (every recipe book says that. I dunno what "to taste" means, exactly)

Fill a wide bowl or flat pan with the marinade.

lay down the tofu slices in pan. Turn after a few minutes. in total, marinade for at least 20 minutes.

grill, broil, or bbq until crispy layer forms on outside.

This is really good in a salad or on rice noodles with stir-fry veggies. or plain as a snack. Yum.
