Today's Spending & Eating

April 7th, 2012 at 04:26 pm

April 7

$140.80 - CAT scan
$62.00 - State tax

Breakfast - Cherry almond granola with skim milk
French Vanilla iced coffee

Snack - Toast & jelly

Lunch - Sloppy Joe on English muffin
Cauliflower Parmesan soup
Celery sticks
Peach ice tea

Snack - Carmel ice cream with added walnuts

Dinner - Chicken & egg salad sandwich

Last night's dinner - which I didn't record - was a slice of DiGiorno Supreme pizza, raw cauliflower & celery, and wine.

Today was pretty uneventful. I did a few things I didn't want to do, but I'm glad I did -- like finishing my state taxes, changing the printer cartridges, and mopping the kitchen floor. And I did some things I wanted to do -- like making the sloppy joes and cauliflower soup (yummy!) and taking a long walk. And I did a lot of reading.

I also prepared my grandsons' Easter baskets and I'll be heading up there tomorrow. Each of them is getting Star Wars Legos, chocolate eggs, a Reese's pieces "carrot" and a box of animal crackers.

Happy Easter everyone!

    I had to tell you, we're having cauliflower this week solely because I saw it on your shopping list and it made me crave it! Our favorite preparation is to oven roast it with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then it's good with tahini sauce (tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt), though I usually don't bother because it's just so darn delicious plain and oven roasted!

    I'm going to try oven roasting it! I'd never thought of that!

    I don't have a written-down recipe for the soup, but here is how I made it:

    Boiled about two cups of cut-up cauliflower till soft. Set aside, then made 2 cups of white sauce (1 Tbsp flour & butter to one cup milk). Added a couple of spoonfuls of chicken bouillon. When the white sauce thickened, I added the cauliflower, took it off the heat and stirred in about 1/2 cup Parmesan. I adjusted the seasoning with a little salt and pepper.

    You could probably use any cheese you have on hand -- Parmesan is what I had, but it seems to go well with cauliflower!
