Sweet chili Tofu Donburi

Unfortunately it was a so bad day today.  I don't know why but I really missed Japan and felt like I could live in Boston no longer.  No no, be strong and cheer up!!  My strong point is that I am a really simple person so I though maybe I could be fine when I had nice food.  I was trying to make some hearty meal.  Actually I wanted to have some meat!

But the bad news again.  I didn't have any meat in the fridge and there were only one pack of tofu and some vegetable in the fridge.  But I had no energy to go to grocery shopping.  So I tried to make some food with only really healthy ingredients.

I was kind of nervous because I even felt like if I couldn't make good food, it had to make me feel so sad and I couldn't get over...
