Tofu Pot Pie

I’ve made Hungry Girl’s chicken pot pie recipe before, but I attempted to make a tofu version of it tonight.  I was determined to make tofu a little more edible this time, and cooked it until it was nice and crispy.  I also cooked it in a little bit of olive oil and ground pepper.

I think it turned out much better tonight.  I defrosted 3 cups of veggies.  I use the Kroger frozen vegetable mixes.  Tonight’s included onion, corn, red pepper, okra, green beans, potatoes, and celery.  I wish I could get rid of the okra and green beans.  Confession:  I tossed some of the okra – it was taking over my veggie bowl and I didn’t like the looks of it!  I mixed the veggies and tofu together with 98% fat-free cream of celery soup.  The whole mixture goes into a round pan.

Since I didn’t think the tofu would need as much time in the oven as chicken (and the veggies were already warm from being defrosted in the microwave), I only put the pan in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.  I then added some Pillsbury crescent rolls and baked it all for another 10 minutes.  Pat likes his crust a little more cooked than I do, so I always serve myself and then put it back in the oven for a few more minutes.

It turned out great!  This was always one of my favorite recipes when I made it with chicken – easy, and very few ingredients.  I’m happy I can add this one back into our regular mix!

We went to see Toy Story 3 in 3D this afternoon.  It was the first 3D movie I’ve been to (aside from rides at amusement parks), and it definitely grew on me.  At first I didn’t like the glasses because they were too big.  Note to self:  ask for children’s size glasses next time.  I felt a little sick at first with all the movement in 3D – but by the end of the movie, I got used to it.

Toy Story 3 was great.  I was reluctant to go see it at first, but Pat and I had heard such great things about it, I’m glad we went.  It was hilarious and thrilling at the same time.  At one point a kid in the theater yelled out in fear, and I realized how tense I was in suspense of what would happen next.  Also, I enjoyed the previews for other kid’s movies that are coming out soon – now I really want to see Despicable Me!
