Aaaahhh... the Power Couple Grande. Quit posting and get the man another drink before he realises you're shirking your duties...

Enjoy your lovely soy bugers and organic tofu loaf tomorrow...


Yeah, they're both 6'2, blond(e) and blue-eyed - she was a member of the Atlanta Olympic Team . . . and I'm -- - - well, not blond!

Mrs 'Cluses sister came to Sing for a few days (also a vegie) and cooked up a storm, so now we have masses of tofu-this and tofu-that plus lots of tofu-those.

Ain't life grand!?

Having said that - it's amazing what can be done with the old tofu nowadays. Still, give me my prawns, salmon and crabs to crunch through!

(I should have mentioned the Olympic swimming Team)

But they do have the positive side of drinking quite happily - especially Champagne - so they are almost lushes . . . hmm, who else like the odd glass of Champers?

So do you only eat veggies and seafood then, V?

As an alternative have you tried tempeh? Made from soya beans and originating from Indonesia I believe, it comes in a square brownish like patty and is available in most wet markets. Nutty in texture and nutritious to boot, it can be used in sambal goreng with french beans etc and is quite delicious when cooked in this way and the Malays often utilise it in cooking. http://www.tempeh.info/

Another option is Paneer (Indian cheese). Similar to tofu in appearance it is whitish and firm like in texture. Paneer is made from cow's milk but I have to admit, I'm not a big fan myself and will take tofu over it any day.

I enjoy the odd glass of champagne or two but am not a huge fan.

Mary, what is pesco-vegetarian?

Edited to add link and correct typo.

GC: A pesco-vegeterian is one of a few terms for an individual who is a vegeterian but still eats fish.

I like tofu, don't get me wong. There is a restaurant at home -- a chinese restaurant run by an Ang Mo who studied in China -- he makes a dish: salt & pepper tofu. Well, it's sex on a stick, I swear.

Regarding Champagne. Perhaps my all time favorite. I like champagne cocktails as well. belinis, mimosas, I like 'em all. But not all at once :-|

"Get on the floor! This is a stick up!"...gives new meaning to that term.
