A - Z Monday - Yummy foods - The letter C

Here we have the lovely Patrick posing with an enormous chip.
This was one gigantic corn chip.
You can see we were captivated by it by the number
of photographs I took of it.
Yup, here it is again. They had some real honker corn chips here. For my other C words: Cauliflower and Curry Chicken. Yumerooskie!! These aren't the best photos, but this is the best cauliflower I have ever made or eaten!!
I can not believe how many yummy foods start with the letter C. I had to shorten my list or I'd just go on and on. Last week while we were in Prescott with our dogs we stopped for a bite at Garcia's. They serve fresh out of the oven corn chips and those babies were big. Not just big, they were huGE!

On Wednesday I decided to make curry chicken breasts and cauliflower. The curry chicken was actually all done for me, all I had to do was put it in a pan and fry it. Thanks Trader Joe's! Well any way, last Monday KBL 2 ORD,etc had posted a recipe for Brussel sprouts that sounded so delish (AND un-stinky!!) that I decided to try it on fresh cauliflower. So, following her instructions, I:

coated my cauliflower with olive oil (in a plastic bag) and

spread them out in a single layer on my baking sheet.

Then I just sprinkled them with Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Put them in the oven at 400degrees for 20 minutes and you would not believe how absolutely D, yes, capital Delicious these things were. Patrick and I scarfed them down and I put another batch in the oven! There were a few left over, and believe it or not I ate them cold the next day and and they were scrumptious too.

Thanks to sweet KBL for the roasting tips and Jen for A - Z Mondays! Jen's blog has a list of A to Z foodies on her sidebar so just click on her name here or on my sidebar so you can go visit.

Have a food filled, er, fun filled week everyone! Lots of blessings!

love, Cassie

Happy Monday Cassie!
good C food not from the ocean. ha!
I will have to try that on cauliflower too, instead of just steaming it.

Hi Cassie,
Thanks for this post! It reminded me that everything doesn't have to be fried to be good. I'll try the roasted cauliflower (and brussels sprouts) A.S.A.P.

Margaret said...

I can't wait to try your recipe for cauliflower, Cassie! My family complains all the time when I cook it because the whole house stinks!

Enjoy your Monday!

That is one giant chip, Cassie! Happy "C" week to you and "the lovely Patrick." HA! :D

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Cassie, YES---that is one huge chip!!!! Wow!

I have never fixed cauliflower like that. I think I'll try that sometime. It sounds good. Wonder if it would be good with Parmesan cheese on it???? Hmmmmm...

Great "C" words.
Hugs,
Betsy

My favorite way to cauliflower. Yumm... I saw your pup icon on http://kbl2ord2san2luv.blogspot.com/ and had to stop by. We had a welsh and recently a lakeland terrier, both have crossed over the rainbow. Your sweet ones added a smile to my day.

Holy Guacamole! As in, I'd need a tub of guacamole for those chips. Awesome. I'm hungry just thinking of it. I love corn chips. Who am I kidding? I love ALL chips. Tee hee.

Ok, I am absolutely beyond FLATTERED that you liked my BS recipe enough to try it with cauliflower. Wahoo! I believe that most vegetables taste best when roasted or grilled. Mmmm. I make my CF the same way, and I almost used it for my "C" word but then decided that it was too similar to the BS recipe. About 5 minutes before pulling them out, I mix in chopped fresh parsley. When they're done I shave fresh parmesan on top and some more fresh ground black pepper. Soooo good!
