We did awesome with our eating today. We even had a vegetarian dinner that everyone ate so well - even Justin who had 2 helpings!! We had whole wheat pasta with sun dried tomatoes, zucchini, and beans. It really was delicious, and even I was a tad skeptical. We also had a salad and roasted cauliflower. I want to pass this cauliflower recipe along because it is so easy and I seriously love it. I got it from Stacey Snacks. I am always looking for a new, healthy way to cook veggies and roasting is my new fave.

Take your cauliflower florets and spread it out on a baking sheet. Lightly drizzle it with olive oil. Then I toss it around so that it all gets lightly coated in the olive oil. Then sprinkle it with kosher salt and pepper. Pop it in the oven at 425 degrees for around 20-30 minutes. You want it to start to brown on the top. I really like mine to be really roasted, so I leave it in closer to 30 minutes. When you get it out, add some capers to it, and lightly sprinkle it with grated parmesan and red pepper flakes. This is DELISH! If it is too dry when you get it out of the oven, you could add a little more olive oil, but I never need to . One week ago I would have told you that I HATED cauliflower. But now I crave this because it is so good!

Still cold, dark, and dreary here. Yuck. Ready for some sun. I had Bible study this morning. Love it. My goal of reading the Bible is going so well. I have spent devoted time focusing on it every day since I started and I am still doing two days worth of reading each day until I am caught up to where I am supposed to be for the year. It has kind of surprised me how focused I can get. I have always been worried that I would be bored and unable to pay attention while reading the Bible, but that has not at all been the case.

OK all you healthy little pumpkins!! Good work! I finished the book, now to try to implement all this good information!

I sure hope all my kids win the photo contest with Regis and Kelly. (not possible for all, but sure would be fun!)

Off to take the dogs out and hit the hay! Get some rest yourself! Love and kisses, LeeLee

Sounds yummy!!! I will have to try that cauliflower, capers are my favorite!

I love mother daughter pictures and that is a great one of you and Lucy.

Ronja said...

That really is a beautiful picture of you and Lucy! It could easily be in a magazine.

I love that you talk about food and healthy options. We do eat too much meat, so we will give that up for Lent and see how it goes. I'll try that recipe!

unbelieveable images!!

Love the pictures! That coat is way too cute. The recipe sounds yummy...I don't think I like cauliflower either, so I will definitely give it a try. That is the way we cook broccoli,brussel sprouts and squash (minus the parm for squash). I made the mustard crusted salmon last week and it was a huge hit. Also made the carmelized onion with anchovies on puff pastry for our Ladies Night In, and it was amazing...gotta be ok with anchovies for that one!

Nicki said...

such great great photos today!!

We make asparagus, green beans and cauliflower all using this exact same method. It has made us into awesome veggie eaters. We also make carrots this way except we add (real) maple syrup. Yummm-o!

I read your post a few weeks ago about the Bible project and I went to B&N the next day and bought this: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/One-Year-Bible-for-Women/Tyndale/e/9781414314129/?itm=27&USRI=one+year+study+bible

I've been playing catch-up, but have really enjoyed it so far. Thanks for the inspiration!
