Tofu chocolate pudding

I've resisted making this for a long time for some reason. Tonight I was looking through so recipes and came across it again. I had all the ingredients on hand so I decided to make it. I'm so glad I did because it was supper yummy! It is very rich so I wasn't sure what the boys would say but Patrick loved it. Charlie not so much but he ate a bit. So here's the recipe.

1 pkg silken tofu
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate

Put all this in the blender and blend until combined.

How easy is that?!?
My only suggestions are to use the larger plastic tub package of silken tofu, not the one in the box. It will help with the richness. Of course if you want it rich use the smaller box. I used Ghirdelli semi-sweet chips. The package does say "may contain milk" but I've been using them with no problem for quite awhile.

So that's it! It really is great. Almost like a mouse. I think next time I make it I'll put some dairy free whipped cream and a strawberry on top. Yummmm!

It's been FOREVER!

It's been soooo long since I've posted anything. As always, life's been crazy. The Army moved us up to Fort Drum, which is in Watertown, NY, pretty much Canada, and we've just been getting settled in and figuring everything out. A lot of the things that needed to get figured out had to do with Pat's allergies. He started preschool in September. He had been in a two day a week school in Kansas but this is everyday and it's public school so, with that, comes rules about allergies and lots of them.
We've also had to figure out where we can buy all the different foods we need. We have been pleasantly surprised to find everything we Need and want. We have to do a bit more running around but if we can get it that's ok.
I am going to start posting more regularly, hopefully. My plan is to post my meal plan for the week on Sunday nights with notes on where the recipes are from. Each night I'll post a picture of the meal and whatever nondairy switches I made. So that's the plan. I'm really going to try to stick to it. Talk more Sunday! :)
