Balsamic Roasted Cauliflower and Mushroom

30 Nov

Another good winter activity is playing with food.  With the icky weather over Thanksgiving break, I decided to try something new.  I went with Balsamic Roasted Cauliflower and Mushroom.

Because the cauliflower requires a longer roasting time, I did prepare it and the mushrooms separately.  I used a one pound container of mushrooms and then used the container to get about the same amount of cauliflower.

Mix the sauce in a measuring cup.

2 Tbsp. olive oil
6Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/4 Cup soy sauce
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder

Mix it and pour half (or just over) onto the cauliflower.  I had mine already in the glass roasting dish.  Throw it in a 400*F (204.4 *C) oven for 15 minutes.

While it’s baking, you can pour the rest of the sauce on the mushrooms and toss.

After the cauliflower has roasted 15 minutes, stir it and add the mushrooms. Put it bake in the oven to bake for 10 minutes.

Then take it out to stir again and then generously sprinkle it with parmesan cheese.  Throw it back in to bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Take it out and serve.  Yummy!

It does make a big pan full.  I tried freezing a small amount to see how it worked, and I must say it was still delicious.

Seriously, I cannot get enough of this stuff!

That’s My Milk!

That’s my milk, Athena!

Cinnamon and Athena

I still cannot convine Cinnamon and Athena that I should get all of Cinnamon’s milk.

And since Athena is much more efficient at milking than I am, she gets all the day milk.  I do still get milk from Cinnamon in the morning.

All three of the girls I’m milking are drying up though.

I am getting less than a quart a day.  I’m thinking I might quit soon.  Like today might be my last day.
