grilled tofu with red curry peanut sauce




This Grilled Tofu with Red Curry Peanut Sauce is so healthy and great tasting. Taste like it came from a Thai restuarant. Trust me on this one!

While taking this picture, I was once again reminded of the disastrous tidal wave that struck Thailand. The ocean reseeds and within seconds comes charging towards you at full speed with so much power that you barely have seconds to escape. And to think, the wave in front of me was only two feet. I get chills thinking about the terror brought onto the Thailand people by the tsunami. I pray that we will never experience something like that in Malibu.
