Weekly Menu Plan #24

Last week I tried several new recipes that have won their way into my cook book binder to be pulled out and used again.  The most miraculous dish was the truffled cauliflower mash.  Cauliflower is one of those veggies I have a really hard time with.  I keep trying new recipes with it every time I get them in our produce box, but they still make me want to gag.  Then the cauliflower mash entered my life and everything changed.  I find myself craving it as I write of it's wonders and for the first time, I'm sad we aren't getting one in this week's produce box.  So now, it's on to more new recipes for another new week.  I'll let you know what a favorites pop up this week on next week's menu.  Let's dig in!

  1. So, do you have a recipe for those yummy deviled eggs you have pictured? :)

  2. Does the cauliflower mash taste somewhat like garlic/herb mashed potatoes? I've never heard of truffle oil; is it hard to find or really expensive? It looks intriguing, a must-try!


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
