Mashed cheddar cauliflower is yummy.  It’s sooo hot here the last couple days, and somehow I can’t stop roasting veggies.  Mark and Jay invited me to come along to Haymarket this morning.  They are wonderful, and it truly has been a pleasure to spend quality time with my cousin and family.  I was able to procure two heads of cheddar cauliflower, two bunches of asparagus, 4 golden pluots, and a case of mangos for $6.  Crazy!  The food is all ready to eat and if you aren’t, it will be too ripe before you know it.  But I am ready to eat.  I gotta remember that my camera’s battery has only the life of a fly before I arrange my plate.  Only got two off-color snaps, slightly out of focus, before it went.  Anyway, I wanted to make this dish at Alice’s one night, but didn’t get the chance to mash.  So here we are.  To make the mashed cauliflower, roast head of cheddar cauliflower with several chopped cloves of garlic and half a diced onion.  When tender, use a blender to mix (I added a bit of water) until nearly smooth.  Enjoy!
