adventures in tofu
so i decided to be an adult. i've always been a bit afraid of tofu, but you can't really say you don't like it unless you've tried it, right? well, i found it on sale really cheap and now i've tried it.
the result: two skinny bovine thumbs down! yuck! i even marinated it ahead and it was still slimy and gooey and icky. it may look pretty yummy below, but don't let it fool you.
disclaimer: i don't claim to be an expert on cooking, weight loss or even healthy eating, but i do love to cook, find healthy, taste bud-friendly tricks and most of all, i love to eat!
qualifications: what qualifies me to blog on cooking healthy on a small budget? well, as my husband is still a student, my budget is not what you'd call large. and as for the healthy part, when i was 10 i was diagnosed with pancreatitus - a disease that doesn't effect me much anymore unless i eat food that is too greasy or has too much fat (in which case, well, let's just say i get really sick). this had steered my experience and limited cooking expertise in a health-conscious direction.
please feel free to comment, criticise, rate recipes, try ideas and make requests for future posts!
