i like cauliflower, raw, pickled, or hot, but not cooked then cold. i really don't like the way it smells when cooking, and especially a few hours later. i've made the mistake of giving my birds some leftover cooked cauliflower and didn't take it out of theior cages until the next morning. peeeee-U!
our dinner tonight was thanks to my boy. after signing him up for little league baseball today (and myself to be a coach again
), he mentioned to dw that he had a craving for escargot, lol. i don't know of too many 8 year olds that would crave it, let alone even try it, so we obliged.
we went to a favourite little italian place for their 4 course, $14 early bird special: Giovanni's Restaurant - Home
this is one of those italian american joints that puts lots of garlic in just about everything. fortunately, they do it well.
we all started with the escargot fra diavolo (garlic) :yum, then had house salads with lemon pepper and garlic
dw had the potato and garlic crusted sole, roasted spuds and veggies. my boy had chicken parm and pasta, and i had veal pizzaola and pasta, all with a garlic-y tomato sauce.
desserts were chocolate cake, carrot cake, vanilla ice cream, and coffee. decaf for the little man.
and no garlic.
