One of my favorite things about going grocery shopping is picking up fresh flowers – anyone else? I typically go to Central Market to get all my produce for the week and end up taking home a couple dozen blooms to display around the house. Last week I snagged a particularly gorgeous bouquet of roses. The outer edges were tinged green, fading into a subtle, pale pink on the inside. These blooms lasted 8 days. I kid you not. I’ve never had fresh-cut flowers last that long. Maybe I’m just super talented at killing plants (I do NOT have a green thumb!) or I never pick the best ones when I go to the store, but I was very impressed with this set.

Speaking of grocery shopping… While Mara has been here this week, we’ve obviously done our fair share of hitting up yummy restaurants, but we also stayed in one night so we could both get some blog work done and eat healthy before the weekend. I cooked up one of my favorite recipes of late, cauliflower “pasta”. I cook it at least twice a week these days and it seriously is so delicious. I even made it for Easter for my family to try and my step brothers and stepdad all loved it! If those picky eaters like it, I know you will! First, chop up a head or two of (rinsed off) cauliflower. Throw it in a big bowl and toss it with some olive oil til it’s all coated. Throw it in the oven on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 400 degrees, stirring it up halfway through so the florets cook evenly. During the last 5 or so minutes the cauliflower is cooking, heat up some marinara (or other kind of tomato sauce) in a saucepan and get out some parmesan cheese. Once the cauliflower is done cooking and the marinara is hot, pour the two together in a big bowl and sprinkle cheese. Stir it up so the cauliflower is all covered in the sauce, add some salt, and eat! Since I’ve cut out carbs pretty much completely, this dish has been a go-to for those nights I’m craving pasta or anything Italian! If you make it, let me know how it goes/if you like it!
