10-minute Tofu Salad & 10-minute of Motherly Bragging


Today was Audrey’s karate tournament in Foster City.  We left the house at 6 am for her to help set up the arena. I was ambitious in wanting to support her and stayed until 9 when I called Peter to tell him that I am coming home because of boredom. He said the traffic would be awful because of Bay to Breaker road closures and I should avoid highway 101 and use 280 instead. Well, I got turned around on the freeway and the GPS took me to 101. It was bumper to bumper after I exited and I didn’t get home until 11:10. After an hour of rest, we drove back to see Audrey compete. She won the sparring competition, and the championship point was scored with a spinning hook kick, which was described as “awesome” by the 2 judges. She also won 1st place in form and 2nd place for open kata.  When we finally arrived home at about 4:30pm, she was exhausted but giddy with happiness. 


Angela didn’t get back until 1:30 am this morning.  I took it to be a good sign that she had enjoyed her first prom.  She was quite anxiety ridden when she left the house, saying she was not this enough or that enough, or she was too this or too that.  In reality, she was beautiful.


Needless to say that going back to doing homework after all the excitement was worse than no fun for either of them.

For food, I made the 10 minute tofu salad.  It is my go-to food when I am too busy or tired or both, for it is truly simple and easy, AND DELICIOUS.


Tofu Salad


1 box of organic silken firm tofu, diced

1 tablespoon minced green onion

1 tablespoon minced cilantro

1 radish, finely sliced

1 teaspoon roast sesame seeds

A dash of red pepper flakes

2 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon 100% pure sesame oil

P1110913   P1110917


Open the box of tofu and slice it into desired shape

Sprinkle the green onion, cilantro, radish, red pepper flakes and sesame seed on the tofu.  Pour the soy sauce and sesame oil on top. 

Roast seaweed strips are also good with this dish, but I don’t have it in the pantry today. If you don’t like radish, you can use a little cucumber instead.  I prefer the radish because it not only gives the salad a bit crunch, it also gives it a little kick.

  1. 我特别喜欢豆腐,各种形式的豆腐,借口健康减肥,能一口气吃掉好多😅😅所以最后反而会又重了许多。😥😥这个食谱我打算去试试。但我是特别不喜欢葱姜蒜,尤其是生的,我打算把葱换成香菜…😛😛

  2. Hi Joan, you sure add a lot about your childrens’ personal lives! Are you sure they are okay with it? Are you sure they aren’t super angry about it? Just a thought.


  3. I agree, I’m sure Audrey’s friends would love to hear about those “tears streaming down her face” I’m sure Audrey approved of that, I’m sure you had her consent, otherwise I, an average reader, would feel like I am intruding on her personal life.


  4. Thank you for your concern. My girls read the blog. I certainly wouldn’t post anything that they don’t want me to. Angela helped to create the blog and manages it for me.
