My doctor put me on a low-carb diet because I’m unbelievably hefty. Like, a charging hippopotamus would bounce off me and go crying to his mama. Like, Moby Dick would bitch-slap me and dislocate his tail. Like, if the Earth’s gravity ever failed, nobody would notice, because I would make up for it.
So I’m off pasta, white bread, and potatoes, which is a painful trio for me to lose.
ANYWAY, everybody’s all about cauliflower, and we like cauliflower, so I made this Italian cauliflower thing.
Cut the core out of a cauliflower and compost it. Put the cauliflower head on a plate, cover it with a big bowl, and microwave it for seven minutes. When it’s cool enough to handle, cut thick slices off it or just pull off some florets. Whatevs.
Put the cauliflower into an oven-proof dish. Top with spaghetti sauce or tomato sauce mixed with Italian seasonings, cooked mushrooms, and cheese. Bake until the sauce is bubbly or microwave, covered, for three minutes.
The green-and-red stuff on the side is Panchocado Salad (see Alligator Sandwiches) with smoked paprika on.
The black thing underneath is the black one of these:
The brown one was made by #4 Daughter and the black one was made by #3 Daughter when they were wee. They’re both grown wimmin now. Oh, my heart! Love never ends.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone still uses something from decades ago.
