CHEESECAKE!! Yummy!! The cheesecake I asked you about last week (yes, it took me till last night to finally make it) turned out WONDERFUL!!!!! :p I had a slice of cheesecake with a couple strawberries on top aaaaannnnnndddd REAL Whipped Cream!!
I'm on a DIET...hahahahahaha....A DIET....that cracks me up! :p
BTW, I also made "fake" mashed potatos last night....cauliflower, butter, and pepper. I don't even LIKE cauliflower and I LOVED these fake tatos. I added a little sour cream and garlic....YUMMY! DH even suggested, after boiling, to bake them with chedder cheese on top for a baked tato effect! WOWZA!
Keep trying new things, gang...it really lifts your spirits and keeps you motivated! ;)

I have a few things I've been enjoying with Cauliflower. First is mashing them like you did with a potatoe masher. I usually use heavy cream, butter, salt & pepper.
Second is cooking until tender and then smashing with a fork on my plate. I then top it with any topping I would have put on a baked potatoe in the past ---- sour cream, butter, S&P, chives, cheddar cheese, broccoli, bacon, etc.
Third is cooking in chicken broth until tender. Puree the cauliflower in a blender with some of the chicken broth and cream cheese until it is the consistency of a cream based soup. Then add cheddar cheese and broccoli for a wonderful cream of broccoli soup. You can substitute the broccoli for other veggies to vary the 'cream soup'. Using cauliflower, asparagus, etc.

Good for you, Terri. Variety is, <i>indeed</i>, the spice of life. Great ideas. All sound yummy.
I'm making a beef pot roast right now. I sautee garlic and onions and brown the roast then cover with water and simmer most of the afternoon. When the meat is tender, I add frozen cauliflower and let it cook until the cauliflower is very soft. Scoop it up, add butter etc and yummy, I like to add a little of the broth to the mased "faux tatos".
Has anyone tried turnips this way? I think I'm going to try that today, just to see if it would be any good.
And where the heck can I find fresh rutabaga? I want to try those rutabaga fries. I suppose I'm going to have to break down and go to Meijers. I hate going to Meijers.

That sounds wonderful, Kath! I'll have to try that this weekend. I LOVE roast...it's what I always have for my birthday. Used to be roast with potatos and corn and rolls and CAKE! Yummy! Now it will be roast with fauxtatos and cheesecake!! Still Yummy!
BTW, I love the Meijers in Okemos. I used to do all my shopping there when I worked in Okemos...now I'm stuck with the little Meijers in Corunna. Just not as nice. But they do have good produce.
Good luck with your turnips!
WW - I've gotta try that soup. It sounds delicious! I love broccoli and cheese soup....yummy!! Thanks so much for the idea!! ;)
