Is it wrong....

to eat this for breakfast? I swear, if you had been at my house this morning you would have eaten it too.

Something woke me up at exactly 5:38 this morning. Then I couldn't go back to sleep because I had to wait for my friends and their dog to show up to convince me everything was okay. By then I was wide awake so I fired up the oven to roast the cauliflower. It looked and smelled so good I just had to have a plate for breakfast. It's Roasted Cauliflower in Lemon-Tahini Sauce and I got the recipe a while ago from one of you, I don't remember from whom, but you can find the recipe here.  I've made this a few times and I always wonder why I don't make it more. Again, super easy and oh, so tasty.

A blooming Cyclamen in my house tells me we're well on our way to Spring. Not too close, but the days are noticibly longer and brighter.

By the way, I finished purging one whole room in my house. Holy cow! It's hard to do. I might post some before and after pics, but I dunno.....there are so many things I want to post about that this might have to wait for a big post when I'm finished with the house. Just know that I was successful in one room so far. Fortunately, I did a major purge in my bedroom, the bathroom and the hall closet last year or I might feel like I'll never get done.


  1. I think you've inspired me to reduce my own clutter! Of course, I have to wait till summer to really make a dent but I can start with my bedroom at school at least :)

    Also, can't wait for dinner Friday! :)

  2. roasted cauliflower - or any roasted veggie - is amazing and should be eaten all day long. have fun with the purging - i'm fine with the rest of the house but can't seem to clean out my sewing room - i can't possibly need all that stuff!

  3. not wrong at all, but i admit, with a title like that, i was ready to drool over a decadent sweet!

    can you come do my house next? or play with my kids so i can?
