Tasty Tuesday!

“Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn't eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Suess inspired me to try cauliflower.”
-Jim Carrey


Hello! As much as I love to cook, making dinner daily has become a chore. Sadly, we have started to eat out more and more - I need to put a stop to that! After all, I post so many of our favorite recipes I don't have an excuse. (Except for caring for my boys, washing the clothes, cleaning my home, running my business, etc.....) Starting today I vow to be better and only eat out two days a week, not four! Care to join me?

“Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.”
-Mark Twain

This is something I will have to try. Being vegetarian I'm always on the lookout for dishes that are substantial and interesting. We love roasted vegetables, though I've never considered doing cauliflower that way. This combo looks and sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing this gourmet meal!
