And here is another obsession of mine -- Cooking!
The boy is currently in the midst of a low-carb kick, and carbs are pretty much my chocolate so we found an awesome recipe online that made the lack of carbs obsolete. Enter, Cauliflower Mac N Cheese with Bacon! The process below --
First, chop and boil 2 heads of cauliflower until crisp and tender, about 5 minutes.
Grate 2-3 cups of cheese. We chose cheddar and gruyere, with a dash of parmesan.
In a sauce pan, bring 1 c of heavy cream to a simmer then add 2 ounces of cream cheese. Once melted, add 1 tbsp of dijon mustard, and salt, pepper, and garlic powder (amount as you prefer). Once combined and smooth, add cheese (remember to leave about 1/2 c or so for the top!) Melt.
Put the cauliflower in a casserole dish, and pour the melted cheese all over, shake to cover. Next, sprinkle the solid cheese on top, along with bacon (we fried up about 5 pieces) Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
Check out that gorgeous cheesy goodness!
And you wouldnt even know it was missing the "Mac"!
