I love anything with coconut milk and I have cauliflower, so I'm going
to try that. I've never used frozen coconut milk, would you say that
equaled a regular can of coconut milk or less - does it matter? What
kind of chili did you use, fresh or dried? If dried was it ground?

The leaves and thick stems from cauliflower make a wonderful
vegetable; many of the leaves are tender and mild enough for inclusion
in a garden salad, can be minimally cooked like spinach, or finely
sliced and made into slaw. The stems/ribs and tougher leaves can be
diced and are excellent in soups. Long Island farms grew a lot of
cauliflower, in season (now) they are at market in full leaf... since
they are sold by the head (not weight) I would always choose those
with the most greenery. I don't know why people trim away the
greenery and toss it, that's the most nutritious part of the
cauliflower. At market I often see a huge pile of leaves that
shoppers ripped off and left, sometimes I'll ask the produce manager
for a bag and I can have all I want for the picking, makes excellent
cabbage soup... whatever I don't use the deer and rabbits love. I see
folks discard the just picked beautiful beet tops now too, aiiiii!
Even the produce manager shakes his head in disbelief.

Default PICs: Roasted Cauliflower

Well, the original post got me wondering, and as I had a whole cauliflower
that I'd just bought I decided to try the Cauliflower 'Steaks'.

It was a bit fiddly, but the SO seemed to like the flavour.

I did the same with some large heads of broccoli.

I only used salt, pepper and parmesan....... no garlic as the SO doesn't
like any garlic dishes during the working week :-)


I also had a hankering for some beer battered fish, but it ended up being
some beer battered vegetables instead, including some Oyster mushrooms.

The beer was from a couple nights ago when I had the 'urge' to see if
things had changed and I can stand a beer now, and failed :-(

I've more hair than your scraggly thin wisps, and nicer... I just
don't have tresses hanging to my ass like a friggin' fag boy... and
unlike you I don't need to have a bikini wax facial and gargle with
Summer's Eve... I have nicer pubic hair than your facial hair. I usta
be a platinum blond with gorgeous curls but that was while I was still
at my mommy's breast. Then over time my hair darkened and for most of
my adult life my hair was brown streaked with blond and not from a
bottle, girls would die for my hair... now I'm back to platinum, thick
and luxurious. I have nice manly chest hair, not like a baboon
assface, just enough curls that the gals enjoy it tickling their
nipples, and other sensitive parts depending on position... normal
women don't like to feel like they're getting boinked by a women with
a strap on or a gorrilla.

Good question! According to the USDA database, raw cauliflower contains
about 2% sugar. I know it turns brown, but is that the sugar, or
something else?

You can brown cheese but that's not caramelized.

When you go out into the sun you burn... when I go into the sun I
caramelize, because I'm sweet! LOL

With a comma like that you must have a speech impediment... with all
that startin' n' stoppin' you probably take three times longer to
orgasm than normal women but you give great head!
