On the menu: Tofu, or “toadfood” as my sons call it. Usually noses turn upward as soon as they see me slicing the white milky rectangle into cubes for a stirfry. Tonight I celebrated small victories: no smart remarks and they actually ate the stirfry without complaint. (Well, I did see a few cubes of tofu parked on the rim of the dinner plate.)
I like tofu – it’s clean, simple, healthy. A nice break from those rich lamb shanks from the night before. And I particularly like this easy recipe from Epicurious.com. Nothing fancy, but the water chestnuts add a nice crunch.
