The Pedant and I have not been neglecting our blog but we have been preoccupied (basically, we added a third queue to our netflix subscription). Dinners haven't been extraordinary recently, tasty, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Monday, after TP had a run to a local Asian Grocery, we made Vegetarian Monte Cristos which were interesting. It was slices of tofu (cut horizontally) with a Dijon-thyme spread, cheddar cheese and crumbled soy bacon (it also called for tomato slices but I didn't put it on mine because tomatoes are icky). After you assemble the sandwich you brush the top with water and drizzle bread crumbs. Broil for 2 minutes, flip drizzle bread crumbs, broil for 2 minutes, eat. It was an interesting taste - the tofu worked well and the soy bacon was, as usual, amazing. We did notice that the tops of the bread crumbs were burning before the cheese melted, but that's probably our broiler. Next time we've vowed to make them in the toaster oven.

Tonight is bok choy (from the Asian grocery) with tofu. Not sure how we'll do it yet. My new favorite go-to book, How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman had many good suggestions (as did The Best Vegetable Recipes).
