Dr. Paul, my naturopath, told me he hates vegetables just as I do. He told me to roast the veg in a terracotta pot, and they taste so good, they’re like candy.

The terracotta pots I looked at on-line seemed so expensive! I was thrilled when I found a $25 glazed pot at the Renaissance Festival that the potter’s saleswoman said could be used for steaming or roasting veg.

I tried it the other night. I chopped up some broccoli, tossed it in olive oil, and seasoned it with salt and pepper. I roasted it in the magic veg pot for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.

It was awful. Maybe the broccoli was too old.

I got some fresh cauliflower the next night and tried again. This time I put half the veg in the magic pot, and half in a pie tin to see if there was a difference in taste. They tasted exactly alike. And the cauliflower still tasted like, I dunno, cauliflower. No candy. How very disappointing.

cauliflower and cheeses

There’s only one way to save this cauliflower. Cheeses.

Stay tuned…

p.s. I made $8 extra in September by selling one stamp set. Woohoo!
