day 30: much ado about cauliflower

I have my grocery list … I’ve had the talk with myself … “Nothing that’s not on the list, Shamille” … I enter the store … but there’s a SALE on cauliflower. 2 for $4 … what, what? I’ll take both. Every single time … this is the chat I have with myself and every time I loose the list game.

So since I’ve procured both of these ever-elusive sale cauliflower heads … I’ve had cauliflower with yogurt dip, cauliflower in curry, mashed cauliflower, cauliflower salad, cauliflower soup … What now? Roast it!
