You know what I did tonight? I country-fried tofu and it was pretty freaking amazing…..
I had to tell y’all because I’m just so proud of myself for how damn good it came out! I’ve never been able to country-fry ANYTHING successfully. Years ago, when I was living with my brother and still eating meat, he made me promise to NEVER EVER try to cook chicken-fried steak ever again because twice I turned his kitchen into an oil and flour-covered chaotic mess and neither time did I produce anything that was even close to edible. Who woulda’ thought that I’d actually succeed at dredging and deep-frying tofu?!
And then, because country-frying tofu wasn’t nearly unhealthy enough, I did this….
Not the best picture in the world..but hey, I never claimed to be a photographer…
The macaroni and cheese was actually a far second to the tofu which is surprising because I really love cheese and I absolutely ADORE pasta. But to tell you the truth, I’ve never made home-made mac n cheese that ever tasted that great. I guess it’s kind of along the lines of how I never learned how to properly fry an egg without absolutely destroying it or how to do an actual cartwheel (when I was little I remember thinking that I was less of a girl because I was pretty much the ONLY girl I knew at my age who just couldn’t manage that little gymnastic feat).
But hey…here I am talking about things I CAN’T do and tonight I actually succeeded at something I’ve never been able to do before. Maybe it’s time to try a cartwheel again.
In case anyone out there is interested, here is the link to the website where I found the country-fried tofu recipe. For once I did not deviate but followed the recipe to a T (is that the correct use of that phrase…it sounds weird).
You know what else I did tonight besides country-fry tofu and throw it in a big cheesy bowl of pasta?
I took a pregnancy test. Mainly because I actually have cleavage for the first time EVER in my life without putting on a push-up bra. My boobies are growing, y’all. Also, I’ve got a little bit of a round belly that I never had before. Rather than think of how sometimes I don’t make the best dietary choices, I went straight to thinking There’s a baby in there.
There isn’t. I’m not pregnant.
I’m just putting on a bit of weight because sometimes I cook things like deep-fried tofu.
Who would have guessed.
