Hi there!
Today was 70 degrees and BEAUTIFUL! Also, I was in a climate controlled office all day. It was tragic! At least there was enough daylight for me to pull some weeds when I got home. Well, today I thawed a whole roasting chicken only to discover that it was actually a turkey breast! What? I know! How does that even happen! Oh well, we ate tofu instead! Fried italian tofu over a mater salad. Delish! Here's what you need:

Firm tofu
Garlic seasoning
Mozzarella cheese
Olive Oil
Balsamic vinegar

Drain and blot your tofu dry. Slice it how you like it! In a bowl combine the herbs (about 1 TBS each), 1/2 TSP garlic seasoning, flour and a pinch of salt. Dredge your tofu in the flour mixture and slap those puppies in a hot oiled frying pan. It wont take long for these to cook, a couple minutes on each side depending on their thickness. Make sure your oil isn't too hot or they'll be toasty on the outside and cold on the inside. The same thing goes for oil that's too cold, they'll end up really mooshy and oily, ew. I digress, while your tofu is frying, go ahead and chop up your basil, oregano, maters and cheese. Combine with a nice olive oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt. I like to let this marry for a few minutes before serving. Once your tofu is nice and golden, blot 'em, salt 'em and serve 'em! The end!
