still cookin’

Chef Bobby

This kid – 46 years after this photo was snapped – is a VERY good cook!

It took a man to help us understand cooking is not a woman’s drudgery.

It took a man to show us that it could be fulfilling and wonderful.

cooking . . . while learning a second language

I was always last clarinet in orchestra (there could have been two clarinets – or twenty – I was ALWAYS last clarinet – no musical talent whatsoever).

Now, I am LAST chair in Conversational Spanish.  However, I am very determined.  I will learn to say something other than “Hola!” in Spanish.

I love to cook (when there are no other pressing obligations – and I can cook, bake, and dream  – with no  interruptions – in the kitchen).

Sooo, it seemed logical to combine my love of cooking with my desire to learn Spanish.

But – where are the subtitles???!!!  What on earth will I be cooking??

Me ayudan!

I am so lucky!

I am sooooo lucky!

Hubby is comfortable (and good!) in the kitchen . . .

how fortunate can I be??!!

I never had it so good!

Came home from a Volunteer Job yesterday – a bit weary – and Bless His Heart! – Dear Hubby had plates of Super Nachos prepared as a snack.

A very Welcome Snack and so thoughtful of him.

I never had it so good!

The nachos were delicious – especially after adding  jalapeños on the top of each.

Yum yum!!

Roasted Cauliflower and Grapes

Roasted Cauliflower and Grapes

There are only three ingredients in this delicious vegetable dish (plus the olive oil and Kosher salt).

Cut up a head of cauliflower into florets and toss them on a baking sheet with red or black seedless grapes and big slices of red onion.

Sprinkle liberally with Kosher salt and olive oil.

Roast in a 425 degree F. oven for about 20-30 minutes until cauliflower is turning a nice caramel color, shaking the pan a few times during cooking period.

We really liked this dish!!!  Of course, we like cauliflower . . .

Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
