Outdoor Dinner


Ate dinner outdoors tonight under a tree and it was a dinner for two! Our lil one went to visit family for the evening. Before that I took the lil one to get his haircut, which he loved! Oh he looks so cute with his new haircut :) We ended up basically spending the day together at home because it was just to hot and humid here :( We would have been sick if we had gone hiking in this kind of weather, plus I worry about the lil one dealing with the heat.

Dinner was pretty good. I'm not the biggest fan of cauliflower mash, but i'm trying out different recipes to get it to my liking.

Marinated veggies with cauliflower mash and rustic vegan bread :) I included the links to the recipes, which i've posted in the past. As for the cauliflower mash...

1 head of Cauliflower
1/4 cup of Olive Oil (you may want to use less)
1 clove of minced Garlic or garlic powder
1 handful of fresh dill (chopped)
Dash of salt and pepper

Place all ingredients in the blender and puree until it's a smooth and creamy like texture. I found it to be quite a strong cauliflower taste in it's raw form. I think next time i'm going to cook the cauliflower so that it's not as strong in flavor. It makes about 4 servings.

Well i'm off to enjoy a movie and visit with the family. Hope you enjoyed my three posts a day adventure. I'm not to sure I could do it everyday, considering some days get so busy and it can be hard to concentrate. It was fun today though!

I found that if you steam the cauliflower, blend it with a little bit of plain unsweetened plant milk and then add some seasonings/garlic it tastes just like mashed potatoes!

Glad you had a great time and had dinner for two...not three!
The hubs isn't too much of a fan of cauliflower but I think this way he would love it!
Thank you for sharing and enjoy the movie

Awesome thanks Meggie! That sounds delicious! I had a feeling that if I softened the cauliflower it might work out better :)

Melissa, you'll have to give it try for the husband by softening the cauliflower so it's not as strong in flavor :D
