I store tofu in dishes all the time with no problem. If it isn't cooked (like if I only use half a block), I usually put the leftovers in a plastic bag and freeze it. It changes the texture but works well in stews and such.
The main reason to keep it in water is to keep it from drying out. Once it's cooked, it shouldn't be a problem.

I know that once you open the tofu you have to store it in water and change the water everyday. But what if I make a stirfry and I have leftovers? Can I just store the whole thing in the fridge or do I have to toss the unused, cooked tofu in the trash?
