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.

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!
