Lynn – you are a genius!!

Brr – It sure has gotten colder here in the past few days!! This morning was so bright and sunny so I just wore my cardicoat but on the drive in to work I saw many people bundled up outside and was worried I wouldn’t be warm enough.  It was chilly but I made it! :)

I can’t remember the last time we went grocery shopping.  Our fridge and cupboards are bare bones!  Yesterday I made some spaghetti & meat sauce with some lean ground beef that’s been in the freezer for a while, which made for a yummy lunch today.  I had no idea what I wanted to eat for supper today so I browsed through Lynn’s food blog for some inspiration since she *always* has such delicious looking eats!  She Tweeted me the suggestion to make Cauliflower Soup.  What a WONDERFUL idea!!

It was so hearty and delicious!  We had it with rolls but I think next time we’ll eat it with Naan. mmmm.  I loved the recipe but I feel it’s missing one thing that I can’t pinpoint.  It was so good but just needed something!

Sauteeing some onions… Let me tell you… this is probably one of my favorite smells in the WORLD!  Reminds me of when my grandmother made perogies… butter & cooked onions would always be drizzled on top.. Mmmmmmmmmm

Next up some yummy medium spiced (ahem, I am a spice wuss) curry powder to mix with the onions:

Chicken broth + water + onions + cauliflower set to boil

Cauliflour soup 007

After it boiled I blended it all up then served in our un-trendy, un-cool bowls.  (We REALLY need more hip and cool dishware!)  I drizzled what remaining honey we had in the house, and topped it with some roasted yellow peppers.  (We heart peppers in this household!)

You and Lynn have totally inspired me to make this this weekend! I'll keep in mind that it needs something else . . . a bit of cream? Cinnamon? Tomatoes?

Mmm, love it and its healthy and yummy. Cream or plain yogourt would go well I think.
