Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday!

This morning, Van thought it would be best to wear his “fishing” shorts.

I’d say they are more like ” a shark bit my legs off” shorts, but whatever!

I finally downloaded photoshop on my laptop and brought home a card reader. Let’s see if that helps with the blogging. I’m pretty slow without a Wacom tablet and 30 inch monitor, but I’m trying. I’m trying!

In the last post, I showed you a bowl full of my current favorite meal: Kale with onions and bacon! Served with a side of mashed Cauliflower. Yummmmm!


1. In a large skillet, brown a pack of nitrate free bacon.

(Yes, a whole pack. You could use less if you want, but let’s be honest, the bacon makes it!)

2. Add one large chopped onion and cook until onions are tender and yummy.

3. Eat all the bacon and onions out of the pan. 

3. Add one batch red kale and one batch green kale. I just cut it up. It overflows the skillet so you have to just add in handfuls and let it cook down, then add more.

(No need to remove the vein. It is not thick and bitter like collards or chard.)

Mashed Cauliflower

1. Cut up one head of cauliflower

2. Steam until tender

3. Place in food processor

4. Add:

1 tablespoon butter (I use kerrygold)

6 ounces of greek yogurt or sour cream. I use whatever I have in fridge at the time.

Salt and Pepper to taste.

4. Blend until smooth.

5. Enjoy.

6. Remind yourself that this is not really mashed potatoes and then eat some more :)

    Had to report back after trying out this great meal idea…O M G!! this was SO GOOD! the mashed cauliflower was just- to- die- for. I made it first but could not stop eating it, there was almost none left by the time I got the greens/bacon done. Glad I saved a little mashed to go with the greens though because the taste of each really complimented the other…WONDERFUL! this is definitely going to be a regular in my house.

  3. first … congrats on sweet sonny! just precious! second … trying these this week. curious if the mashed cauliflower keeps in the fridge (thinking of making a double batch).
