baked goods? NO ingredients.

i am dying for some sort of baked good. i cannot go to the store (literally no money. none, not exaggerating.), and the only ingredients i have on hand are whole wheat pastry flour, baby food, powdered soy milk, a tiny bit of quick (not instant) oats, peanut butter, and cinnamon. very minimal sugar. am i out of luck? i have SO MUCH FLOUR and i want to use it...i'm hungry. just not sure what i could do with it. any savory dishes i could use, too. i have frozen veggies and some canned stuff, too.

is it hopeless?

Spicy cajun nuggets.

Believe it or not, this was the first time I've tried making tofu nuggets. I can't believe I've been spending almost five bucks on a box of those vegan 'chicken' nuggets. I'm sure most of you know the drill... I just cut up the extra firm tofu into rectangle shapes, pressed the water out of them, rolled them in vegan mayonaise, rolled them in plain bread crumbs, generously sprinkled both sides with cajun seasoning, and baked them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes on both sides.

This is the cajun seasoning I use:

It's the best cajun seasoning I've ever had, and it tastes good on EVERYTHING! I'm so excited about how great these nuggets taste and how easy they are to make. My roommate really loves them as well; she's not vegan, but she's from Japan and loves tofu.

TVP and Muesli

I bought some TVP for the first time tonight and I'm not sure what to do with it. I checked the FAQ/Memories section and really all I came up with that sounded good was a no-meatloaf. Any other creative suggestions? I saw a lot of taco, sloppy joe, and lasagne recipes.

On a sidenote, I also picked up some muesli and it is absolutely delicious with soymilk!
