Grilled Marinated Tofu

Grilled Marinated Tofu

Today’s recipe is as simple as you can see in the title, Grilled Marinated Tofu.

The key is in the marinade and after it’s grilled the taste and aroma are just perfect balance of very satisfying, delicious and I must say easy side dish.

Well, I really loved the spiciness of the marinad. However, it is always optional to use and how much you add to satisfy your taste buds. I love spicy, but I know it’s not everybody’s cup of tea so you can always adjust.


Yesterday, I found out that school here starts on August 1st, due to the expansion of Spring break. As much as I am happy that kids are getting one extra week over Spring break, I am that much sad because the summer break is shortened.

They are just starting to have fun when they will be soon waking up early in the morning carrying heavy backpacks.

I don’t even know how my oldest one can carry that heavy backpack. Seriously, that weighed tone last school year, plus his saxophone. I always feel sorry for his shoulders and back.

This year I will have 7th, 4th and 1st graders. Also, I cannot believe that my girl will be done with Elementary this school year. It feels like yesterday when she started Kindergarten.

If you have a child just now starting with Elementary, please cherish every single moment while they are there. Join them for lunch, help them with homework and lock those memories forever because they do grow up so fast.

Ok! I am a bit on the emotional side. I have always been that way, but I know that every parent that have kids out of Elementary school feels the same way, and yes those are precious moments even when I shed the crocodile tears while watching them enter every school year.
