Bonnie got her first bunny.
There is currently a lively debate going on chez nous, as to whether or not that is a good thing.
The person who was sitting quietly in the warm house at his computer (who shall remain nameless) thinks it's wonderful and lavished Bonnie with much praise.
The person who was racing through the wet, muddy field, in the dark, in her stocking feet (having been knocked out of her shoes in the fray) trying to get Bonnie to release the bunny, has a different opinion on the matter.
Bonnie, the self-appointed Bunny-Catcher, doesn't give a rat's ass about either opinion.
She wants to get back out there, find the bunny and finish the job….. Although I don't think she's quite sure what that entails. Is she supposed to kill it? Eat it? Play with it? Give it to me as her contribution to the family coffers?
We left it huddling, thoroughly terrified and likely close to death, by the side of the house as we, torch in my teeth, trying to get my shoes on with one hand and hang on to Bonnie with the other, fought (that would be me) our way back to the gate and into the fenced yard.
(After getting Bonnie to release the bunny I lost my grip on her collar – at which point she promptly fetched the rapidly fleeing bunny back to me.
At which point I made her let it go again.
It was then I realized I was no longer wearing shoes.)
The reason I was walking the puppies in the dark was that we were late getting home. We had been scouring the département for cranberries.
But, for now, I'm exhausted…..
I'll have the cranberry story next time….
This time let's get to the cauliflower.
Mon mari assures me that thus us one of the best cauliflower dishes I've made – and he loves cauliflower!
The base recipe came for Kalyn's Kitchen: 'Twice-Baked Cauliflower'.
This was truly delicious – thanks Kalyn!
1/3 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1.5oz (45gr) bacon, chopped
2 tsp olive oil
3 tbs Greek yogurt
2oz (60gr) white cheddar cheese, shredded
Steam cauliflower until very tender.
Sauté onion, garlic and bacon in olive oil until bacon is crisp and onion starting to brown.
When cauliflower is done, put into a bowl, add yogurt and lightly mash. Add bacon, onion and mix well. Spoon into 2 small gratin dishes (or 1 larger one) and top with cheese. Bake, 400F (200C) for 20 minutes, until nicely browned.
I love it when good stuff is easy.
Rabbit for dinner anyone?
