Roasted Tofu

20Jul11

A new Buffalo Wild Wings opened up near where I live, and I stopped by with a friend on the way home from camping last weekend for lunch. I had forgotten what a guilty pleasure the food is there! You’d have thought I’d had enough of it after working there in college, but I ended […]
