    We eat a lot of tofu at our house, and I overlooked a brick of it recently.

    It went past the use-by date, and I thought: I could use it anyway, toss it, or feed it to the pullets. It's protein, right?? Delish!

    So I put it in a bowl and drizzled honey over it, because I spoil my girls rotten, and then DD and I took it out to them...I got mobbed.

    They not only ate it with the same ferocity reserved for the homemade yogurt, but even MORE enthusiasm. I guess it's a new fave they will have to wait a long time for, but I'll know next time, right?

    It was a duck-and-cover situation, for all interested- the flicking of the beak that occurs every time they eat something sticky or gummy was worse than ever. It was worth watching!

    Of course, I've eaten tofu that's months past the use-by date and it was perfectly good, especially the aseptically packaged type.
