No, really! So I've managed to move to Denver. I didn't eat for two days because I was on the road and so eager to get the driving done. I subsisted on coffee, water, grape juice, and a single bag of Chex Mix. That's no way to live!

So the day after I arrived in Denver, I went to Wild Oats and purchased some food. Oh, it felt so good to eat home cooking again!

This was just simple brown rice, sauteéd before cooking with some sliced ginger and garlic and then steamed with vegetable bullion along with baby carrots and brussels sprouts. The tofu was baked with some Annie's Naturals papaya poppy seed dressing while the rest of the meal was steaming. The rice was a bit chewier than I'm used to, but rice is harder to cook at this altitude. I do attempt pre-soaking for a good while before activating the steamer. I find that helps quite a bit with the thicker grains.
