More food...

I am sorry for all of the food posts, but everything is so beautiful at this time of year. Am I the only one who stares at all of the fresh produce? Above are the honeycrisp apples I bought last weekend. Below is the bright chard.

The chard was just wilted in olive oil and garlic and then served with steamed salmon.

I also happened to buy an enormous head of cauliflower. I measure the head and it has a diameter of 1o inches. I told you it was huge. I had a reason for purchasing it other than its freakishness.

I had been in Whole Foods and picked up their flyer. In it there was this recipe for cauliflower. I decided to try it one night. It was really good and incredibly easy. (It must have been for me to buy a huge cauliflower for one person). You should try it. I did not eat it with the pita pockets. I just ate it as a side dish.
