In a Valentine Mood

I kind of feel like making dinner with Valentine's Day in mind, since it's Tuesday. I also have been thinking about what I already have in the house that I can make. Well, I'm going to end up going to the grocery even though it's really cold outside and I really was hoping to avoid going out. Oh well...

I've decided to make the Tofu Parmigiana that I made just about a year ago. I don't know why, but a parmigiana (or Parmesan) just seems to be a Valentine's-type recipe to me. So, we'll have the tofu, and that's what I have to go to the grocery for. I may also pick up some dried porcini mushrooms to adapt a Porcini Crusted Tofu recipe into the parmigiano. I think the mushrooms might give the dish a little more pizzazz.

Then, I think I'll also make some Mrs. T's Pierogies that I have in the freezer. I'm inspired by the Pesto Pierogies recipe, but I'm going to use a jarred pesto that I already have on hand. I'm not really sure though, again I'm thinking about it. If I don't do the pesto pierogies, I might do Pierogy Primavera. Either way I'm pretty sure we'll have pierogies too.

Hmm, such a dilemma. I guess it'll depend on what I feel like tomorrow. But, I still need to go to the grocery to pick up some tofu. I'll be sure to let you know how it all turns out.

  1. That was delicious! We REALLY like tofu Parmesan. I cooked it following Emeril's directions again, but prepared it with the porcini mushrooms. The mushrooms created a really rich flavor profile that we all enjoyed. I highly recommend this dish. It's good and easy.
