Ok, it’s a cheap joke but look at the lengths I will go to sell it!

So I went to the Tofu Festival yesterday. JustJenn was less than thrilled by it and SnarkyDork was completely uninterested but I had a really nice time and I ate some excellent tofu based food. And I really enjoyed it all. I had fried tofu, tofu pate, tofu tuna poke, soy ice cream, soy whipped cream with strawberries…and I liked it all. And if you have any lactose issues, I think I can safely recommend the Soyatoo whipped cream and the Woo City WooFu. Good stuff.

I actually really like tofu and I am not sure why. You know how they say that chocolate releases endolphins or something in your brain and they make you all happy-like? Well, I think I have that same thing with tofu and I don’t know why. Tofu is not something I really ate as a kid. In fact, I don’t think that I ever had it until I was an adult and I am sure it was always one of those “Yeah, yeah, tofu, ok, whatever” kind of foods. But somewhere along the way it became one of my very favorite foods. Thus I have been wanting to go to the Tofu Festival for a while now and I finally got to go. And it was good.

Ah, you've never been before. Now I get it. I've been every year and it hasn't changed, right down to the vendors. The food was good, just the same. I was looking for something different.

Since I have eaten tofu every week of my life, I guess I wasn't as impressed. Oh well.

Well, I wouldn't eat any kind of pate or poke, so I guess the tofu versions wouldn't do much for me either.

The important thing is that you enjoyed it! Yay!

hi ren, i love your artwork! and thanks for posting a comment on my blog the other day sorry it took me so long to say thanks. hi back! as for tofu, i think it's ok. that type of festival would only work in oklahoma if you deep fried everything and added corn syrup.

Give me good old red meat anytime. Soy products are being linked with way to many estrogen-related diseases--including breast cancer. Think I'll go kill me a cow.

I'm sorry if this is inappropriate, but my buddies told me last week that a diet high in tofu/soy will make a man's jizz "hit the wall". And is good for the prostate.

You're welcome for my very useful two cents. =)

hmmm...i guess there are some benefits to the soy diet....if that's a benefit... i don't...really...yeah.

thanks, purrrl.
