    Not something I cooked myself, I ate it at a restaurant on Friday, but I'd love to learn to make it: an entire roasted cauliflower. :D I thought that'd be too hardcore for me, but it was actually reeeeally yummy. It was the first meal I insta'ed, so that should say something. :p

    I'm thinking of trying the recipe above. I don't think of cauliflower as being very interesting but 5 stars with over 3,000 reviews must be good. With vegetables, I think the spices are everything, really. I think I'll omit or cut back on the oil, though. A whole cup of it sounds excessive.

    Bit depressed about this evening. Leftover mince from Friday and a Yorkshire pudding and old peas from Friday.

    It’s dead cow night at my place. A couple nice thick sirloins, with those miniature red potatoes, and mixed veggies. (I’d do the sauteed mushrooms and onions too, but the wife doesn’t like ‘shrooms.)

    Sirloin is such an odd word.

    Sounds kinda like a knight, Sir Loin.

    Or in a more macabre sense, a high society fellow (top hat wearing chap with a fancy cane),
    has had his buttocks cut off. :p

    Food names are weird...

    Oh, I love whole roasted cauliflower. I just core it, plop it on a baking tray after rubbing with olive oil, salt and pepper, then bake for 30-40 minutes. When it's done I pour 1/4 cup of melted butter over it and shake on some Parmesan cheese - delicious!

    Dinner tonight will be whatever I can rustle up under my roof. We're apparently getting all the snow/ice/sleet this weekend that we managed to avoid over the winter, and I'm not leaving the house today for anything. Even the grocery store delivery service has been suspended until tomorrow!

    Assuming my power's on (good so far, but we got over a foot of snow yesterday and now the ice is just starting...) I think I'm having a stir fry. It feels so retro, somehow. I used to eat them all the time when I was in school and I loved them, but they seem to have sort of faded out of fashion?

    But they're yummy, easy, and healthy, so... I'm bringing stir-fry back!

    When it comes to driving in the snow, it's non-existent. ;) However, I have discovered that Amazon Prime will deliver groceries to my house today, so tonight for dinner it's flat iron steak, buttermilk mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans.

    Does anyone else only cook every second or even third night? With just two of us living here now (and being lazy, of course) that's how it usually works out.

    I would if I had someone to take out and dine with.
    Otherwise no, I do not go out to eat period.

    Yup, Mrs. A and I eat out far too often, kills the budget, but that's where we seem to be as a couple, so...

    I eat out too much also. Is it just me though or does eating out start to lose its harm after a while? I think home cooked meals are generally(with exceptions) better.

    I didn't mean we eat out the other nights, I meant I cook enough for a couple of nights at a time.

    We did eat out a lot until recently though and yes, I think eating out a lot makes it lose its appeal. The cost adds up too.

    For my birthday in 1876 - we visited a farmhouse in the middle of the moors for 'real homecooked farmer's wife etcetera' - I suppose it was a word of mouth fad.

    So, she - the farm wife - worked really hard at the cooking - and sat us down [meanwhile] in the sitting room with our drinks. But then there were other guests - these 85 yr old firemen and their wives - and we were kind of yuppies at the time - and we all really disliked each other. And afterward we had to eat the food [together], it was horrible, grandma's meat and grey vegetables.

    But most social interaction is painful. When we moved up here - the third night my wife dragged me to the Slaughtered Lamb pub at the corner, people all talking Yarkshiire and dominoes. I wandered in with my monocle/plus fours. Wife saying 'what is wrong with you?' at the top of her voice...everybody looking...

    'Shut up or I'll leave you, and never talk to you again, I hate you.' I lost my edge, y'know, happens v. rarely.

    Roasting brings out the nutty flavor in cauliflower and gets rid of the bitter flavors. Makes it a whole other thing. Warning: It smells God-awful while it's roasting, though, so air out the place as it's cooking.

    Tossing leftovers in the crockpot. I have chopped kale, onions and cooked black beans. Guess I'll add some garlic, tomatoes, carrots, jalapeno and spices and serve it over brown rice since that's what I have and I'm too lazy to go to the store. It doesn't matter anyway because anything tastes great with garlic salt. :p
