foodie friday!

it's been many moons since i've done a foodie friday post. perhaps i can play the prego card? we had friends over recently and decided to grill up some chicken sandwiches. my friend also happens to be a vegetarian, so i thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try grilling tofu. i love tofu and usually just pan fry it. but my grilled tofu did not disappoint.

for those interested:
buy extra firm tofu
soak between paper towels for at least 20 minutes [i rung out the paper towels a couple times] i also put a couple plates on top of the tofu to apply pressure.
marinate the tofu just as you would marinate chicken
grill the tofu just as you would grill chicken

for all the carnivores:
marinate the chicken in bbq sauce or your favorite marinade, then grill
lightly toast ciabatta bread on the grill
top with chipotle mayo, spinach, cheese [we used muenster & colby jack]
[for the chipotle mayo i threw some garlic & chipotle's in adobo sauce in the food processor with mayo, very yummy though my bearded man thought it was a tad spicy.]
[forgive the iphone photo, but my photographer's been rather busy. i forgive him. he has adorable dimples under that beard.]
