Tonight I made a very pretty dinner. I learned that very pretty does not always mean very tasty. I like to make hearty meals on Sundays. So, I made a roasted chicken and twice baked mashed cauliflower.
|Doesn't it look pretty?|
My husband did something awful today. And it was not insulting the mashed cauliflower. It was the most awful thing someone could ever do. I was enjoying a nice hot shower and he came into the bathroom and said “Hey! Have you ever been shower pranked?!” Before I could answer, he was dumping ice cold water over me. Imagine enjoying a nice hot rain shower and then it turns into an ice cold waterfall. I was mad and stunned all at the same time so I just started laughing. He explained to me later that this was not a trick unique to himself. He learned this trick from his dad. (He is a replica of his father, which is usually a great thing, except when he does his dad’s pranks on me.) So, thanks Shayne, for dumping ice cold water on me while I was taking a nice hot shower today. I’ll be getting you and Jonathan back, eventually.
I don’t have a recipe post tonight. It was going to be the twice baked mashed cauliflower but I’m not going to give y’all a recipe for something I don’t eat. On the positive note: I did lots of fun fermented things this weekend. I’ve got three new kombucha flavors brewing right now. Citrus, Strawberry Mint, and Mint. I am so excited to give them a try. (For those of you who aren’t familiar with flavoring kombucha, you brew your batch per usual then you take out what you want to flavor. Next, store it in an airtight container for 3-5 days while a “second fermentation” happens and the bucha is flavored and carbonated at this point.)
|We use Sodastream bottles to flavor our bucha. From what I've tried so far, these hold in the carbonation best.|
|Yep, that's an old pickle jar.|
