If you use a Starbucks card and don’t have it registered, you should be ashamed.  I get a free drink every 15 visits!

Don’t worry about how often I go – that’s my problem, not yours. ;)

But a Venti Italian Roast with 2 pumps sugar free vanilla, 2 pumps sugar free caramel and steamed soymilk tastes a lot better for free than for over $4!

I had half yesterday and half this morning.

And even more fabulous treat – Chobani on my doorstep! 

Unfortunately there is some added sugar in the delicious new flavors, but they don’t expire until May – so I’ll be loving my plain until after Easter – if I can hide any from my husband. ;)

Last night’s dinner was inspired by my Sweet Garlic Soba Noodles & Peanut Noodles and the fact that Thai stir-fries are everywhere recently!

Peanut flour sauce

  • 1/2 cup peanut flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp liquid aminos
  • 1 packet Splenda (or 1 Tbsp sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp granualted garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ground red pepper

I used a random mixture of veggies from the fridge.  You really can’t go wrong with a stir fry – red bell pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, onion – sauteed in cooking spray.

I broiled my tofu after pressing it and slicing it in to small squares.  I burshed it with a bit of sesame oil to help it get crispy, and it ended up getting way TOO crispy – more like tofu chips.  But that’s okay.  The meal was still delicious.

I sauteed the veggies, then stirred in the noodels and 3/4 of the sauce.  I drizzled a bit more sauce over the top.  Looking forward to leftovers for lunch!

What’s the best thing you’ve gotten for free recently?
