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!
