I feel very lucky that I was able to spend a week in Puerto Vallarta with my mother! It was a very hot week though … 32 – 34 C in fact with the humidity reaching up to 75%!

I was going to make a Scrambled Tofu, and it turned into a Tofu-Vegy Stir-Fry…. 🙂 It doesn’t really matter does it…. either way, it tasted delicious, scrumptious!
