Thrown-together dinner 4/18/2006

Baby spinach with fresh lemon juice, fried Italian tofu and red bell pepper, and garlic toast.
The tofu was marinaded for a couple days in organic balsamic viniagarette and bragg's. I fried it in olive oil and fresh crushed garlic and added the bell pepper towards the end.
Marinading is the perfect thing to do with the extra 1/2 or 1/4 (as seen here) block of tofu or so that you don't want going entirely to another dinner, so fridge it in a random marinade and use it for for a solo dinner, as seen here, though this was my max of tofu for one dinner.
I have 3/4 of a block sitting in chipotle bbq sauce for tommorow night, and I decided to throw the rest in the Italian fixings to toss on pasta or a salad. Tofu two nights in a row is little much, but I'll lay off for a few days, maybe a week, after that.
Thomas and I made two more calzones for him, one was dinner and one's in the fridge for another day.
Also, the best thing about Celebrity Cooking Showdown is Alan Thicke, and no offense, that's not saying much. This is the only cooking show I can watch without cable when I'm home, though.

This must be yummy. Sometimes thrown-together meals are a lot more tasty than the ones you prepare wasting a lot of time ;)

We can never eat all the tofu so that is a good tip for us. Your dish looks marvelous...even to me. I'm not much of a tofu eater.

ok I'm gonna try this one.. I just have to get the marinating part correct this time around :-)

I saw a bit of that Celebrity Showdown the other day? Is it just me, or does Allen Thick look a little more plastic-like than he did in the Growing Pains days?
