P’s birthday weekend + Raleigh reunion with the bestie + oodles of window shopping = fun times!
There was also the fabulous addition of Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and a Pit BBQ joint that served the best tofu of my life! Oh yes, you heard me right! This meat-centric restaurant turned out some BALLER barbecue tofu. I was pretty shocked when the boys each grabbed a bite off my plate because it “looked like chicken” and subsequently did not run for the door =)
Speaking of tofu, I managed to eat it a total of three times over the course of the weekend… Crazy coincidence! Usually I have it about once a month, but when presented with yummy options [tofu scramble, bbq tofu, and tofu stroganoff] I can’t deny the YUM!
scrambled eggs, tofu scramble, sauteed mushrooms spinach + onion, baked cinnamon apples
onion rings, bbq fries, + fruity sangria
The Pit’s famous barbecue tofu
grilled sweet potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, + tomatoes
a biscuit + some hush puppies
a light beer while curled up watching Forrest Gump w/ my boys
The BBQ Tofu rocked my socks… and made for a pretty plate of leftovers too!
It looked and tasted like chicken but its noooot! <3 Epic trickery if I do say so myself! The tofu was shredded and then made into patties, grilled, and doused with molasses based and vinegar based barbecue sauces. Sooooo Goooood! If you’re ever in Raleigh, North Carolina check out The Pit. And don’t pass on the onion rings =) They’re sinfully delicious.
