Friday

At the Asian markets this morning, buying ingredients for the one-pot meals my husband has been inspired to make this week. Unfortunately, these noodles (while delicious) were not nearly as purple as they appear in the picture.
 Q inspecting the produce.
 She has a way of finding everything in the store that's pink. Even the cellophane noodles she found in a pink net bag.
Q has been on a huge tofu kick lately. It's really the only thing that she'll eat in massive quantity (everything else she picks at like a baby bird). 
We're very much looking forward to crispy tofu in miso butter. Yum!

 And then there's the Pocky aisle...very pink indeed!

Aw, Q is such a darling, she looks like she was having as much in the grocery store as going to an amusement park!

Sounds like a very tasty meal ahead! if you are looking for pink/purple pasta I know a very good simple Italian recipe which uses beets and has just that effect!

Juniper, pass it on, please! Q has just recently entered her "pink phase", and I have so far learned to make both pancakes and macaroni rendered bright pink with beet juice. It delights Q no end! Mike and I are on a major root vegetable kick this year, so it works out well, since we eat lots of beets. I'd love to have your recipe!

well tofu isn't the worst thing she can have a kick on, it could have been chocolate ;)

how cute. she loves pink! I only went once to this market, it's in downtown Denver right? It was a shame we only learned of it during our last month in Colorado.

C-L: I think the one downtown you're thinking of might be the Pacific Mercantile in Sakura Square? We love that one but it's been a while since I was there. This one is actually in the Asia center down on south Federal Blvd. I don't know the name of it. It's in a whole complex of restaurants, banh mi sandwich places and gift shops.
