Kentucky Fried Tofu Bowl

What if the colonel had a pink haired grandaughter that took over the company and changed it to Kentucky Fried Tofu and instead of commercial featuring flying pieces of dead birds they had flying pieces of tofu. Would people still protest the company but for different reasons? Would the food still be gross?

These are the topics that we could have discussed while eating my version of KFC’s bowls. Actually, the inspiration came from something we used to eat at summer camp, fried fish mixed with mashed potatoes and corn. I didn’t feel like cooking and this seemed like an easy and hilarious meal to replicate.  I bought popcorn tofu and canned corn from Wheatsville, made some mashed potatoes with sauted garlicky kale so I wouldn’t feel totally deprived of any nutrition, and leftover gravy. Everyone really liked their bowls but who doesn’t like popcorn tofu?

Spinashed Potatoes

Did you know that you can add spinach to your mashed potatoes and then eat them with smug superiority knowing that they are more nutritious than their plain white brethren? They are really yummy, colorful, and easy. Imagine how excited people will be if you serve these for St. Patricks Day! Just add a few handfulls of chopped spinach or baby spinach to your cooking water when your potatoes have another minute to go, drain and mash as usual making sure that spinach gets incorporated.
