Color me lucky

After the week we've had (and yes, it's only Tuesday), there is something rewarding about coming home to a dinner that looks like this:
Yes mom, you see? We are eating our veggies! Those beautiful purple cauliflower maintain their color when roasted. They are a bit more mild and softer than their white counterparts and are truly delicious roasted at 350 with some good olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper...


Doesn't this just make the most delicious side dish to some roasted leg of lamb? I'm drooling from memory :)


Out of the oven, these guys maintain their vibrant color and get tossed with a bit more seasoning and some fresh parsley or cilantro and viola! Dinner is served.

I had to be ``actively encouraged'' to eat vegies as a kid - and can't get enough of them now!!!

veggies are known as the "royal foods", especially when they are PURPLE, just like royalty!
you make everything look beautiful and delicious, and, yes, you make your mother proud, again!
