Dinner From The Garden

“How about squash cakes for dinner,” I said to  Jon after picking two yellow squash, an onion, peppers, tomatoes, and a cauliflower from the garden.

“And roasted cauliflower too?”  I could hardly believe he asked.

When I planted the cauliflower, I thought Jon would eat most of it raw as part of the veggies I cut up for him every morning to snack on. But the cauliflower would rot in the garden before he got to eat it all.

I don’t really like to cook, but I like wasting vegetables, especially the ones I grow in my garden even more.

So I found an easy recipe for roasted cauliflower.  When I mentioned it to Jon earlier in the week, he made an icky face.  I told him he could have his cauliflower raw and I’d eat my roasted.

But it turned out he liked the roasted cauliflower as much as I did.  It’s kind of hot to be turning on the oven so I’m going to try cooking the cauliflower on the barbeque like I do zucchini.

I simply toss the cauliflower in olive oil then sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and a half teaspoon of Tumeric and cumin. Then roast and yummy.

  1. This so made me smile! When my grandkids were little and older I always made faces with their breakfast foods and snacks. I like your added teeth. The other day I sent a photo of my snack face to my grandsons, 23 and 18, they both sent back text with a thumbs up! It’s just another example “ the little acts of kindness and good” so valuable to all. Thanks for all you and Jon efforts in this regard~ so valuable in itself , particlarily to those you reach, your community, the mansion, the school, the farm workers down the road. The monies you collect yes; even more valuable is your passion for and time ! A flower bouquet, an art class, a meditation , the sharing, Zinnia Bud Fate
