First and foremost, No. I am not any type of Vegetarian. Nope. Never. I love bacon and steak and meat wayyyyyy to much to give that up. But I am bored with some of the standard sides I have been making. Potatoes or plain rice are boring. Not to mention meat can be crazy expensive. So can a metric ton of veggies during the off season.
Today I try Tofu. Its something I have wanted to try for a long time and I'm willing to NOT SUBJECT the Husband and Kid to it for a full meal. Some of my friends say stay away from it. Others offered some wonderful ideas. I've only had Tofu cleverly disguised as Chocolate Cheesecake and I ate it. I completely understand the magical properties of Tofu where its all about the flavor. There is a brick of the Wegmans Extra Firm tofu sitting in my fridge. I will fry some and bake some. An open mind is what I really need right now. I had tried Quinoa and it was ok. I love Hummus and some veggie spring rolls are really good. So my taste pallet is going to expand damn it. I will learn to like More food.
