Soy far, soy good

So I have a thrift store soy milk maker and one thing led to another and now I have a 60 lb. sack of dried soy beans. What can I do, besides soy milk? Tofu is an easy answer, but what else?

To fu, or not tofu?

I'm working on making a few changes to the way I cook to emphasize vegetables and grains, and minimize the animal products which I totally love but need to cut back on.

Less packaging, more deliciousness?

I drink nondairy milks (mostly almond, some soy) and eat tofu. When I have made these things in the past, I have enjoyed the results but ended up with a lot of dirty dishes. A friend recommended the Soyajoy G3, which is a countertop electric appliance that heats and grinds the nuts/beans (previously in 2005, about an earlier model). Does anyone have experience with electric soy/nut-milk makers?

Tofu, so sweet and tasty. Tofu, don't be too hasty. Tofu...tofu tofu tofu!

What is the best time and temperature for baked tofu? Every recipe I read seems to differ wildly on those factors. I've made some that has worked, and some that hasn't. The one time I got it just right I forgot to make a note of which recipe I used. I like it crispy on the outside but still a bit soft inside. Thoughts?

Where can I buy pork-and-tofu brats?
