Dishes on the Side


I'm wondering what some of your favorite side dishes are. I get a little tired of steamed veggies and salads all the time.

To start it off, here's one of our favorites. I take extra firm tofu and cube it into 1/2 squares, then toss with soy sauce (shoyu for Sica) and crushed ginger. I let it sit for about 10 minutes or so before dinner to let the flavor soak in. SO tasty, very easy and quite healthy.

I'd love to hear what you all make!

Yeah, I aslo go to the salon to get m y stuff done.. Here in Spain they have no good places. Can You believe they dont have the fancy chairs with the bubbles and the massage??? in NYC any place has these but here only upper crust spas have it. If you go to any nail salon they will lay you down and o it with a bucket of water!! This country is the sh1tz!

Jenna, I should have done that this time around. But, nail salons freak me out, ever since my toenail got infected. I really need to get over it.

I am lazy AND clumsy and must go to the salon to get my nails done. I don't have fake ones so it's pretty cheap...like $12 plus tip.

I just get them done at a salon, which reminds me I'm so EFFING p'd off at that place because they have been over charging me by like 15-20 bucks here and there. I don't realize how much it is, I just hand them my card, so when the hubby is going thru the statement he's noticing that I'm spending alot at the salon, and I get yelled at. :ninja:

The more you do it, the better they'll get Layla. And the faster you'll get. If I'm in a hurry, I stick to a more shimmery color. The flat colors are way harder to get looking nice.

JennaV, Glad I caught your comment. They usually take me 4 to 6 hours. I know it is insane, and drives everyone I know crazy. But, I refuse to go to a salon anymore. Also, I'm a freakin perfectionist when it comes to my nails. My husband HATES it. Oh, well. :D
jennifer76 jennifer76 7 years 48 weeks
HEY! lol I'm glad you feel better!! :D

LOL! BeachB, how long have you been working on your nails? I thought I read an hour ago that you were doing your nails and reading sugar rush :P Have a nice family weekend!
BeachBarbie BeachBarbie 7 years 48 weeks
Layla, your welcome. I had know idea your were sick, and I was wondering were you've been. To my fellow sugars: My family is visiting tomorrow thru Sun., so if I'm not around much, you know why. I hope everyone has a great weekend! :) Right now, I'm still working on my nails and doing laundry. So, I have it on rush.

It was definitely a 24 hour virus or something, because I :barf: until 2 or so in the morning. Then when I woke up I was sooo weak. But I'm A-ok now. :)
