VeganMoFo day #12 - Like totally tacos all the time

Yet another day of sun and tacos. Recipe for shells here. These shells need to be eaten within a few hours after you make them - they taste best that way. You might be able to revive them by putting a damp towel over them and microwaving them for 10 seconds, but I don't know.

Andy made the shells. He adds more water to the shells batter and so he gets thinner taco shells. Good either way.

I made teriyaki tofu. The marinade contains sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic powder, powdered ginger (lazy), Blazing Saddles hot sauce and agave. I marinate for about 5 minutes on each side, then fry them up. I don't have measurements because I wing it.

We filled the shells with the teriyaki tofu, refried black beans, fake cheese, avacado, lettuce, salsa, and red onion. This is the prefolded state. They were really great tasting - the traditional taco taste went well w/ teriyaki. I'd say it took about 10 minutes to prepare.

At some point today, I'm going to make some stuff for Canadian Thanksgiving and a big slop pot of soup for the week.

Here is a pic I took of Kobie today. It looks like he has on a fishnet bodysuit. He likes to carry that toy when he is barking at the really loud squirrels as they chirp in the cedar trees. I gotta get a pic of these squirrels some day. I don't see them very often, but I hear them all the time.
