I guess great minds think alike. We had quiche here, as well. Mine was made with an almond flour crust and has asparagus, sausage, and goat cheese. I also had some mixed salad greens and a nice, crisp glass of homemade Sauvignon Blanc.

It's definitely feeling like fall today!

Earlier in the week Glenn commented that he sure would enjoy a nice big sandwich...like the ones we enjoyed at Central Grocery in New Orleans. Muffaletta? Yep!

So while I was marketing on Tuesday I picked up the meats and cheeses and made the bread yesterday. We still had a nice-sized portion of the olive salad we bought at Central Grocery when we were there, so we were good to go.

Omigosh, are we stuffed...but in a good and tasty way!! Now I want to go back to New Orleans. At least there's still enough of everything so we can have a repeat for dinner tomorrow. Yeah!!!!

Good seeing you, Katie! I wondered where you've been lately. I'm hoping I can see New Orleans someday. Himself was there on business a couple ages ago, so we keep hoping to make a trip together someday.

Steve, that quiche looks yummy, almond crust and all. I want to let you know I made our fauxtatoes tonight with the food processor - what a difference! The first fail was using a potato masher on the cauliflower, the second fail was using a stick blender. Third time with FP? The charm! This was just the push I needed to finally take my FP for its maiden whirl...I've had it in the basement for far too long, trying to drum up the courage to take on an appliance that intimidates me. I'm clumsy and can cut myself with a plastic knife. BTW, I didn't have gravy tonight, so I added about 1/4 cup grated Parma cheese. Just the right touch.

Thanks, Steve! The funny thing is, when Himself went to plate his food, I mentioned something about "cauliflower". He said "I don't see it". When I told him the white stuff was NOT mashed potato, he was surprised. You know, with a pour of beef gravy it, I bet it's really hard to tell the difference. My Mom really hated cauliflower, but would fix it since it's "good for you". She served it only when she made roast beef. She would so have loved this!

Thanks again for sharing your technique.

Great dinner pics, Steve and CG!

OK - it's decided. Steve's cauliflower/cream cheese dish is going to be added to this year's Thanksgiving menu. I'm sure it'll be a hit.
Everyone's dinners sound especially appealing tonight!
