Today was rough…with a savory ending. Little #2 is being weaned and is not happy about the change of schedule. He is already a mama’s boy through and through, which I love! I would have just barely survived my day if it weren’t for cannabis. Had I not taken the small amount of time to smoke and adjust my perspective I would be crying right now. Little #2 has needed extra attention and affirmation of my love for him today, which means he followed me constantly crying for me to hold him. I am not able to tune out anything, let alone crying.
So, I stepped outside and found relief in the form of beautiful green flowers. Upon my return, I do not leave my children alone FYI, I was able to address his needs with lots of hugs, games, reading, and of course food. He cried a lot when I had to put him down, but the cannabis helped me get my son through this stage. It also allowed me to concentrate on making a kick ass and healthy dinner!
I made mashed garlic and rosemary cauliflower accompanied with a herb and honey glazed lamb. Though the lamb recipe is not mine, the mashed cauliflower was done upon inspiration. The last time I made mashed cauliflower, it was watery, overcooked, and flavorless. This time I made a few adjustments in my cooking method and cook time. Also, instead of mashing the cauliflower by hand, I used my Ninja mixer.
Garlic and Rosemary Mashed Cauliflower
1 head cauliflower broken apart
4 cloves garlic
½ sprig of fresh rosemary
2 Tbs butter (or Cannabutter for an elevated meal)
- Boil water in a pot (hehe, pot!) and add your cauliflower. Boil until just fork tender. If you overcook the cauliflower it will retain more water and you will need a cheesecloth to get rid of the excess water. Once the cauliflower is cooked, about 10 minutes, drain the water.
- Blend the cooked cauliflower, garlic, rosemary, butter, salt, and pepper until smooth.
- Plate and enjoy once cooled.
I wish I had a picture of the completed lamb and plating, but it was too delicious to let sit enough for a nice picture. All in all, I had another great day as a Cannamommy.
