There is still time!….
Make Spring Break more memorable this year! You don’t have to go on a fancy vacation or take the entire week off for the kids to have a great break. Just take one afternoon off, pack a picnic with a meal they’re unfamiliar with, grab a kite (and maybe some vino for yourself) and get some fresh air!
It’s Picnic time! My meal recommendation:
Roasted Garlic Cauliflower mash
Preheat oven to 375
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 pounds cauliflower, coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
Place garlic in a pan, drizzle with olive oil. Roast garlic in the oven until tender and fragrant (about 15 to 20 minutes) Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and reduce heat to medium. Cook cauliflower until tender, (about 10 minutes); drain (remove as much water as possible) Blend drained cauliflower, roasted garlic and heavy cream in a blender until smooth; transfer to a pot over low heat. Stir Parmesan cheese, butter, cream cheese
Vonnie’s Favorite Salad
- 1 Large tomato, diced
- 1 Cucumber, diced
- 1 Onion, chopped
- Sprouts (optional)
Combine tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions in a salad bowl. Whisk 1 tablespoon of olive oil with
1 tablespoon of lemon juice salt and pepper, add to salad ingredients. Chill.
Baked chicken wings
Preheat oven 375
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons of chili powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 20 chicken wings
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken wings; coat. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking sheet.
Cook in preheated oven 1 hour, or until crisp and cooked through.
I can smell the fresh air.
