Pretty sneaky, Sis!

Ok, so, usually I do not condone lying about what a recipe or food I’m preparing contains but I really wanted my husband to give tofu a chance. I knew that if I told him ahead of time that the Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Chili I was cooking had tofu in it, he wouldn’t eat it.  I, myself, was unsure about tofu as I have horrible childhood memories of the tofu dogs my mother tried to get us to eat. Fortunately, tofu seems to have come a long way.

I got the chili piping hot and made sure to throw out the cans before he had a chance to see them.  I had mine with a big dollop of sour cream and it was delish!  I asked my husband what he thought and he said he would definitely eat it again.  A glowing endorsement from a man who swore he “would not try anything with tofu so do not bring it home”.  Of course, this is the same guy who told me that hummus was so gross it wasn’t even fit for scrubbing the bottom of his feet with.  I got him to try that a couple of weeks ago and although he isn’t addicted like I am, he does like it and has asked for me to get many different flavors.

I still have not told him that there was tofu in the chili but I will.  Or will I?  Duh duh duhhhhhhh!

  1. Yes, the dreaded Tofu Pups, which, along with the egglant parm, ended up in my plant pots! I’m glad you’re finally conquering your fear of healthy food! Don’t tell him. Just keep up the good work!
