Tofu, Or Not Tofu?

Posted Apr 28 2011 6:13pm

I have to say, it has been a long and challenging two days.  I suppose the first bad thing to happen was when I ran water all over my pizza dough which turned into a huge mess.  By the end of the long series of ordeals, I had a suspended car license and a court date.  You see, after work on Wednesday I got pulled over (right outside my place of employment, which is a middle school no less).  The reason I had gotten pulled over was that my registration sticker was old.  Well, the police officer informed me that my license was suspended and that I needed to “find a phone” because I wasn’t allowed to drive.  My cell phone had died, and the businesses within walking distance of me were all without long distance capabilities.  To add onto that, my wife was waiting for me at the grocery store five miles away with no way of getting a hold of me.

SO, once I finally got home (won’t say how I did it), I went to charge my phone and realized I had lost my cell phone.  When Michelle got home, she was upset to say the least. 

Anyway, to make this short(er), my license was suspended over a citation I got about a burnt out headlight, and I got it all taken care of.  it only ended up costing me a total boatload of cash.  Then I had a second melt down.

HOWEVER, amidst the chaos, I manage to pull out some sweet glories to share with you.  I couldn’t sleep, so I cleaned the house all night and in the morning, I made delicious French toast on some of the bread I got from Jeff’s Breads in Lewisburg:

For lunch, after all the ordeal was over, I decided that I wanted some tofu.  The lady at the health food store had given us some for free!  So, I made fried apples and tofu with garam masala, served over a bed of couscous:

*drum roll* and then… it came time for pizza round two.  I decided to keep the dough AWAY from the sink, this time.  Here are the final results:

This is my fake meat pizza.  I have chunks of veggie burger, green onions, a little couscous bed, and eggplant slices topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  What can I say, it was an experiment, and an enjoyable one at that!

The next pizza had tomatoes, red chard, goat cheese, and a drizzle of my orange delicious tofu dressing I had made the other day.  I wish I had a good picture of it but my cam fragged up a little bit.  I did, however, get this photo of what it looked like before it went in:

Yes, I know the camera strap is in the picture.  Oh, well.  Anyway, I’m happy to say that my bad trials are behind me and I have moved on to win the day, yet again!
