diversityinya:

To celebrate the (approximate) 1-year anniversary of Diversity in YA’s launch on tumblr, we’re giving away all these books! Thank you for celebrating diversity in young adult books with us and continuing to engage in dialogue and increasing awareness!

(To view a document listing all the titles, click here.)

Here’s how this is going to work:

  1. We’ve divided these books into 4-packs of diverse awesomeness. Don’t worry, series titles will all be kept together, so you won’t end up getting a middle book or a third book in a trilogy without the others.
  2. We have multiple copies of some titles, so some of them will go into several prize packs.
  3. We’ll select 17 winners, each of whom will receive a prize pack of 4 books!
  4. Because of the large number of titles and the cost of international shipping, we’re only able to ship to U.S. mailing addresses. International folks may enter as long as they have a U.S. mailing address.
  5. Teachers and librarians get an extra entry!
  6. The deadline to enter is March 31, 2014.

Thank you so much to the following publishers for donating books to our Anniversary Giveaway:

I made a tofu marinade with yumberry jam, soy sauce, & sriracha. I melted it in the microwave & then marinated some pressed tofu. It turned purple & was very tasty. I had it with steamed rice & steamed veggies. Very simple meal & tasty. :)

I have been having the worst week. I haven’t been cooking anything new. I hope to relax soon & get back to the yummy food.

Dinner tonight was tofu delight! There’s a restaurant that I used to frequent that recently went on Facebook & misrepresented a non vegan dish as a vegan dish. When I commented on how I had asked about that dish just a few days before the post was made & I was told that chicken broth was used, they didn’t reply nor correct their post. Needless to say I won’t be going back. Anyway, the point to that story is that they made tofu delight & I loved it. I decided to make my own. This was my version. I fried garlic, fresh grated ginger in olive oil for a few minutes. I added vegetable bouillon cube crumbled & a small amount of water, lime juice, & a splash of soy sauce. I added carrots, celery, snow peas, broccoli, &, green onions. I added a bit more soy sauce, lime juice, & a little more crumpled bouillon cube. After it cooked for a bit & the carrots were tender I added pressed cubed tofu. I let it cook until the tofu was done. I had sticky steamed rice & I served it on the side. It was very close to the tofu delight I’ve had in the past. It was tasty. :)

Last night I made a super easy & tasty potato salad & cabbage soup. The potato salad was Yukon potatoes (any potato will be just as tasty) olive oil, green onions, Basil, parsley, garlic, & salt. I boiled the potatoes & mixed everything together. I cut the potatoes into chunks & it was delicious! The cabbage soup was garlic yukon potatoes cooked in olive oil & then I added bouillon broth, cabbage, corn, & parsley. Once everything was cooked, I put it all in the blender & pureed. Once creamy, I poured it back into the pot & added some salt! It was all very tasty!
