...And I've been hearing all of these great things about tofu.
I've never had tofu.
Jerk Face claims to have tried it.
He never wanted to try it again.
Too bad, too sad.
I was determined to make it.
So, I scoured the Internet.
(Not really. I just went to my favorite food site: Allrecipes.com)
Searching for an amazing tofu recipe.
I found one.
all of the reviews that I read said that it was amazing.
It tasted like chicken.
"Carnivorous Husband couldn't find the tofu amongst all of the chicken"
That sounded perfect!
I decided to do it.
But I wasn't going to tell Jerk Face that it was tofu.
I knew he wouldn't even give it a chance.
So I told him that I was going to make
"That Parmesan Stuff"
knowing full well that he would assume Chicken Parmesan.
I'm so sneaky.
I wouldn't let him in the kitchen whilst making it.
Which should have been his first clue...
I followed the directions (almost) to a T.
I was in such a hurry I didn't see the part where I had to flip the tofu over and cook it for 15 more minutes..
When it was finished, it looked and smelled pretty good.
I dished it out, not wanting Jerk Face to see that the chicken was 'weird looking'...
I took a bite and immediately thought:
Jerk Face took a bite:
"Do you have a place where you keep really good recipes?"
"Yes. I think, somewhere.."
"You should. This could be something that you make over and over and over again..."
...Maybe the recipe reviews were right?
...and then he took a second bite...
My tofu dreams were squashed.
He just looked at me with disgust.
And then I burst out laughing.
But I did feel bad.
..I didn't really care for it either..
I did this a few years ago with eggplant.
That didn't go over to well, either...
maybe I should learn my lesson?
He said he felt
Our marriage may be over due to tofu.
Would you like the recipe?
Be careful.. It could end marital bliss.
