The package looked fine, no bulging. My Mom is the type of person who will throw anything out if it's more than 20 minutes old. It's a joke between my boyfriend and I. I'm the only one who cleans out the fridge, but when I point out that her leftovers haven't been touched in 3 days (she doesn't even eat leftovers), she immediately attacks me: "Your soup has been in there for over a week!" Me: "Mom, I put that in last night."
I've tried cooking tofu many times, many different ways, and I just can't seem to like it. I've had it at Thai places both deep fried and steamed... yuck! Actually, there is one way I'll eat it... in Hot and Sour soup. That's because it's in tiny pieces and really soft from the broth. It doesn't have a taste. I know it's supposed to take on the taste of whatever you put it in, but I still taste the pumpkin-likeness in any other type of recipe. I usually don't care for the texture either. I think I'll just give up on trying to prepare it... it just sets me up for disappointment. I do have some left in the fridge, maybe I'll try making soup out of it... last time.
