this is not your mother’s tofu

Action Hero Melissa and I did the Race for the Cure Sunday morning. The Portland race is something like the fifth largest in the world! There were tens of thousands of people there, all united in supporting the cause. There was also a lot of swag. After we ran, Melissa and I went from table to table, gathering up Sun Chips, Yoplait yogurt and smoothies, Propel fitness water, cheddar cheese, and tofu. Yes, tofu. There was a Mori-Nu table there, and they were giving away boxes of soy milk and tofu, as well as packets of pudding mix.

On the package of pudding mix, there was a recipe for dream pie. I found the idea of a chocolate pie made of tofu rather intriguing, maybe even a little disgusting, so I decided to make it. In general, I am against creative experimentation with Japanese cuisine. It’s just too deviant for me, since I am such a traditionalist, ha ha. Anyway, the pie was actually pretty good, though it would have benefited from a stronger chocolate flavor.
And look for a superbuzzy update this week! We got in a fantastic shipment, and my head is spinning with crafting possibilities! The shipment included quite a few trims. Would you like a sneak peek?
Now don’t bother Kelly, cuz she has to get all the stuff on the site!

    This tofu-chocolate pie is pretty chocolatey, and you can make it vegan, if you check ingredients:
    Melt one bag of chocolate chips in a double boiler. Blend it with one block silken tofu until really creamy. Add one tsp vanilla. Pour into graham cracker crust. Chill.

    OOh, the trims are going to do me in.
    I like to make the tofu pie in a blender with a whole bag of chocolate chips (melted), the silken tofu, and a whole banana. Also sometimes some peanut butter. And chill a long time. Mmmmmmmm.

    My sister did the Portland walk too on Sunday, and the second thing she told me (beyond how many ppl were there) was how much free stuff there was – she even got free underwear from one stand – we don’t get anything like that at the Buffalo one! I’ll have to let her know about the tofu pie, I know she was looking for recipes =)

    I was at an open workshop night at Collage last week and all the other ladies were doing the walk. They even got a bunch of different pink wigs. I looked for on the news coverage but didn’t see them (which makes sense considering how HUGE the walk is.)
