Ah, Valentine's. Roses. Chocolates. Jewelry. All the things that make me puke. I know I sound bitter, but I was never into that stuff even when I was in a relationship. Haha. I just find actual mental connection with a person more romantic than a card and some candy hearts. So, this is the V-day I always wanted to throw with my friends but never got around to it.

|we got the beet, we got the beet, we got the beet|
For the tofu, I just did this basic thing. But I marinated the tofu (in four chunks) in pickled beet juice. Then, I sliced it up. I was lazy and have come to realize that boiling the tofu in salted water does pretty much jack...so I just sprinkled both sides liberally with black salt. I also used fresh dill. It was pretty good! And it looked all fancy!
