Freezing Tofu!

Hi there,

I'd first like to thank everyone for all the cupcake recipes from my last post. I tried one and they were a hit, I plan on trying a bunch of them :)

I have a question about tofu. I don't often buy it because i'm not a huge fan.. partly because I'm not very creative... anyhow.. I bought a couple of flavored packages when it was on for $0.99 and froze it. It's just in a plastic package with some water in it.
(always scan the soy section.. there's often stuff marked down to $1 Yay!)

I made two stews a couple of weeks ago, one veggie for me and one beef for the BF, I took out the herb tofu and let it thaw in the fridge over night. My mom thought I should use plain so I bought some and tossed the herb bak in the freezer. My parents always told me never to freeze something twice (as in freeze, thaw and then refreeze).. I was just wondering if this was suggested for tofu aswell. I asked Mom but she has never used tofu :P

Thanks for any help!

Cookie Swap?

Does anybody know of any cookie swaps being run at the moment? I'd really like to get something other than bills in my mail :(

ps I'm in Australia so if there's anyone out there who can't participate in cookie swaps because of our customs laws, let me know and maybe we can start one up here.

**EDIT**
Thanks for the feedback, I've just PM'd the moderator from vgn_cookie_swap to see if they are happy for the comm to be handed over to someone to start it back up again. I'll let you know what happens :)

**EDIT #2**
After much thought and consideration, I decided that the best option would be to start up an Australian-based cookie swap community. If you haven't seen it already, go head over to aus_cookie_swap and sign up now to be notified when the first June swap starts!
