Breaded tofu strips recipe

One of my cat cups has a chip in its base (very sad), so I don't want to risk using it for food. And, it's me, so I doubt you're surprised that it's new life's purpose is being used as a plant pot. I had originally planned to plant a cactus but when I was outside... Continue Reading →
