When the cat's away the mice will play...

...with tofu! Actually to be grammatically correct, the cats were away (no apostrophe). By cats I mean Mom and Dad, who were moving our little Molly into college. I'm not sure what is harder to believe - that Molly is a college freshman or that I am a senior? Let's not ponder that too long.

Anyways, Mom + Dad's absence seemed like a good time to cook something I'm pretty sure they wouldn't love, tofu. I wasn't in love, but I was in like with it. My method came from a favorite blog, Kath Eats Real Food. First I sliced and pressed the tofu for about twenty minutes beneath a few dusty cookbooks. 

Then I marinated the tofu in a homemade BBQ sauce, the recipe accompanied KERF's baked tofu method. Twenty minutes in the oven at 350 after marinating for a bit and your done.

I ate my tofu with a few (like two) salad greens, farmers market tomatoes, cantaloupe and corn anadama bread from the Bread Man, with the company of a Food & Wine magazine.

Oh summer, don't leave. 


  1. Mmm, I might actually like tofu if it looks like that! (And boy, that issue of "Food & Wine" looks familiar!)
