Chile Cornmeal-Crusted Tofu (and glee!!!)

I just got the V-Con!!!!!!!!

I rode the bus home with this silly stupid grin on my face, poring over everything like a kid at christmas, and within 2 seconds I found the perfect recipe for a quick after-school dinner that would pair with a fiesta grapefruit/bell pepper/lime salad I'd made the day before. So I whipped up the Chile Cornmeal-Crusted Tofu in about 2 minutes (the only snag being my oven deciding to die - alas I had to pan-fry), and had the best dinner I've had in a while. I'll admit I've been craving just those kinds of flavours, but the breading is so light, and paired with some limeade (and extra hot sauce) I was totally at a picnic table watching a june afternoon go by (never mind that it's freezing outside).

This is my first Isa/Terry book! I feel like dancing! *dances all over kitchen*



......now I just have to somehow forget about reading it cover to cover tonight, and work on things that are due tomorrow. Phooey. (You won't be seeing the last of me, beautiful V-Con! I'll probably cave and make cookies from your pages, in oh, about 3 hours of boring drawing. mwahahaha!)

Hi Liz,
Congratulations! I can't even remember how long ago we ordered our copy of the Veganomicon, and knowing how slow the US post is, it can literally take months until it reaches Finland... Maybe by Christmas?

yay for Veganomicon!! I have yet to bake/cook the recipes from that book, but I plan on doing so, after the Thanksgiving holiday here has passed (I have so much cooking and baking to do for that event, that I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the recipes! haha). that tofu looks perfect to me! :0)

I know what you mean! I've been reading it every spare chance I get and there are still huge parts I haven't gotten to yet ("they have biscotti recipes in here??!" :o)

Okay, I take back everything bad I said about the US post: we received our book today, and it only took one month!
