Cauliflower and Pop.. unders.

Evening, ladies! Thank you all for your advice on dealing with my dad. I've had a bad relationship with my dad since I was about ten. There's so much wrong between us, I don't want to get into any of it. It's hard to just blow a comment he made off, or "just talk" to him about how he offended/triggered me. I wish it was that simple. Your comments were much appreciated though, and made me feel a lot better.

Pretty boring day, food-wise. Until dinner, that is. I made Cauliflower Gratin with Goat Cheese Topping. Except I replaced the goat cheese with feta, since my sister objected to goat cheese, and feta is my favorite!

It was so freaking good! It should be a crime to make veggies taste so delicious. I never realized it before, but cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables. I'm so happy it's in season. Arg, now I can't stop thinking about eating it! Favorite cheese+favorite veggie+bread= match made in heaven!

I also attempted to make Whole Wheat Popovers that I've made before with great success. Something went wrong this time. I put them in cups last time but just put them in a sprayed muffin tin this time, so they stuck. They deflated, and ripped when I tried to pull them out of the tins. I was left with bread cups :[ Delicious, airy bread cups though.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, but I've been busy today. Finals start next week, eek! I've been studying. To make it up to you, I took another picture of my kitten mitten muffin Shadow!
Now I'm off to study more, then to watch *Gossip Girl*! Chace Crawford! Ed Westwick! My future husbands, both of them. Ha. G'night!

hey girl! I'm so sorry - I actually missed the comments about your dad in your last post! I'm sorry to hear you struggle so much with that relationship but one thing you do have to remember is that he is a MALE (yuck ;)!!) and men really tend to just not be as sensitive or understand EDs. I'm sure he didn't think this comment would offend you or trigger certain emotions but I am so sorry that it did!!

Good luck studying and enjoy GG! I can't wait :)!!! <3

Anyway soz about your popovers, but as long as they still tasted good, who cares right!
Yeah i'm uber-ecited bout GG!!!
