I just saw this your Ogreness. I am so sorry to hear you are down with it again. No fun at all. Take good care of yourself. Would you like me to make a batch of my curried coconut cauliflower soup? It cures what ails ya!

Oh, One of the questions (answers) on Jeopardy included the Missoula! I correctly identified the state as Minnesota (just kidding! ). TB thought I was nuts as I shouted out that's where my favourite Ogres live!

I promise I'll get better so I don't HAVE to eat cauliflower anything! Thanks anyway, feeling much better. Not as nauseous and the light-headedness is fading.

Poor TB, now he knows he's married to a crazy lady who has ogres as friends.

I knew the thought of avoiding cauliflower would make you better!

And as for TB, he knew he was marrying a crazy lady long before I knew any Ogres!

I went to bed early last night as I wasn't feeling the best. Now, here I am up at 2:30 a.m. munching on cheese & crackers & cannot go back to sleep.There are just to many things running through my head of things that I need to get done.

what is the primary objection to cauliflower for you, andy? hearing your vehemence against it, and so frequently, has me curious. to me, cauliflower seems such a mild tasting veggie-- on its own, bland, even. is it the texture? do you equally dislike raw cauliflower? or do you and pf just have too much fun trashing it?

I don't care for the smell or the taste. My parents used to include it in pickles and that was fine. Typically, when people are trying to convince me to like it they tell me about this fantastic recipe for cauliflower made with melted cheese and a dozen other ingredients. In that recipe you can't even taste the veggie. Why bother.

I was thinking about asking if they disliked it raw. Stirling likes it raw; can tolerate it steamed or lightly stir-fried, and detests it thoroughly cooked. I'm easier going about how long it can be cooked, but the idea of it being cooked in a soup... Same goes for broccoli.
