That looks delicious, Steve. What is the 'spice' in your oven roasted cauliflower? I love roast cauliflower, and yours looks like it has so much flavor.

I'm doing my French Pork Tenderloin, with baked potatoes, and spinach salad.

Thanks Cheryl!

The spice blend I use is:
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

I just cut up a large head of cauliflower and toss it in 2 tablespoons of olive oil along with the spices. Then spread it on a baking sheet and roast in a 500F oven for about 20-25 minutes. I usually give it a stir about halfway through.

guys! Steve, I'll have to try your roasted cauli blend.

We went to a friend's restaurant, and since DH has been jonesin' for a nice thick chewy piece of fish, we split an order of Mahimahi with mango salsa and roasted cauliflower along with one of our favorite salads with candied walnuts and feta with balsamic dressing.

Oh that sounds good, Dawg.

Change of plans for tonight's dinner - I didn't have enough lump charcoal. The Ortega burger will have to wait till tomorrow. I ended up with a fried egg sandwich and cucumbers with ranch dressing.

What really had my mouth watering was Addie's fresh bucatini pasta and steamed clams. OMGosh - that sounds so good. I'd love to be able to get fresh clams here, but we're too far inland. How was your dinner, Addie? Please share!

Chow Time for 7/7/15

Thanks Cheryl! I too am curious about Addie's meal, and the quahog clams. I don't think I've ever had them.
