And a few other photos of the stamp room in case you didn't see them on Facebook last week....

Most of my stamps are stored in the white cubes above and below. If you click on the photos, you should be able to see what all is in them in better detail.

And you knew there had to be book storage there somewhere right? These shelves are all 2 books deep. The bottom shelf is my To-Be-Read pile. *eeks*

Happy birthday!! Great layout. Maybe I can help with #18- I made this yesterday- make it everytime my husband travels because I love it, my son likes it, my husband doesn't.
Slice/squash/drain 1 box firm tofu. Cube into bite-sized pieces.
Saute 1T minced ginger/2 garlic cloves in a bit of oil for 1min.
Add 1 can (I use lite) coconut milk, 1-2T Thai red curry paste, 2T soy sauce. Add tofu. Simmer until warm throughout. Add a bit of fresh basil. I tend to add a few Roma tomatoes that I cut up when I add the tofu. This time I sauteed green beans and Thai eggplant pieces so they were cooked first and just added to the mix at the end. The recipe also calls for a few green onions but I'm not an onion fan.
