An Ironic Meal

Don’t worry, I’ll get to the Wednesday in Numbers… but tonight’s dinner really kind of made me laugh.

When I went to Whole Paycheck Foods on Monday, I bought (finally) some more tofu to bake a la Gliding Calm for at least one meal this week. I was quite excited to make it again, came home and immediately set to work pressing as much water out of the tofu as possible. While it was pressing, I started thinking about a side dish. Usually, I’ll do vegetables and/or noodles of some sort with it.

Vegetables… I had lots of those! Leftover baby tomatoes and red pepper from Monday, spinach that wasn’t getting used fast enough, and thought it would all make a lovely side dish. When I opened the fridge to get the spinach, I noticed a few slices of bacon sitting there (properly wrapped of course). “How about bacon in the spinach?” I asked Adam. “OOOH yes!” Bacon makes everything (well, most things) better!

I ended up making Gliding Calm tofu and spinach with bacon… tofu. And bacon. I’m a strange one. The spinach, tomato, red pepper, and bacon side dish though, was quite fantastic! I simply sauteed 2 diced pieces of bacon, then added a diced red bell pepper, halved baby tomatoes, about a pound of spinach, and some adobo. Then I took this photo out on our patio:

  8. Hi! Just found your blog, love it! I love the idea of bacon and tofu. My boyfriend won’t come near a 10 ft radius of any tofu, but he loves bacon. Maybe he will like tofu if it had bacon in it…
