~Fun Food Friday...Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower~

Thank you for each of your sweet comments and your prayers!  Well, I've been dying to blog, but have been kept busy with an assortment of things. (I'll post about some of those things later!=)  Oh, how I wish that I had some of my beautiful fall decor with me [that I got at Hobby Lobby for 80% off]...but alas that is in our house in the USA.  So, I decided to add some fun touches to my real pumpkin and butternut squash.   [Am I calling it the right name?  This yummy squash is my source of "pumpkin" for making all of my Fall recipes both in Colombia and here in Argentina. =) ]
~Here's the BEFORE pic......... ~
~And Here's the AFTER pic.  =).~
~Thank the Lord that I brought these Fall ribbons with me...and I hot glued them onto the pumpkin. (Obviously I can't get a fake pumpkin here, so used the real one that Jesus helped me to find. After I bought this one, I 've not seen anymore pumpkins like this here in Argentina!)~
~Then my wonderful sweetheart who is an artist did some calligraphy on the butternut squash for me.  Thank you, Phillip, you are the best!=)~
 ~I'm happy with my "new" fall decor.~
I wanted to share a recipe with you.  I made it for our Sunday dinner and it was yummy.  I've eaten cauliflower with cheese all of my life, but it's hard to get the cheese to stay on every piece.  But this way makes it easier to get cheese in every bite!
~Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower~ ]
Cook 3 med. heads of cauliflower broken into florets in 1" of boiling water until tender.
Mash with 1/3 cup milk, 1 Tab. of minced fresh rosemary {which I didn't have}, and 1/2 teas. salt.
Stir in 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Serves 6.  (our Sunday dinner of a fresh green salad, cooked carrots, baked chicken, Cheddar Mashed Cauliflower, and my fresh homemade bread. =)~
And as always...ENJOY!

Love, Love, Love your pumpkin! And that squash is Darling! Way to go Phillip! Been missing hearing from ya. So glad to know it was just that you were busy running, and not that you had internet troubles! Sounds like your friends from Argentina do the "siesta" thing with their stores, huh?! Neat, but no doubt frustrating til you learn that part of their culture!

Love your creativity with making what you are able to find looks so cute in your new home. I too use butternut squash when making all my pumpkin recipes. I love them!!

To answer your question....I've never hand-sewn a pillow, but am sure it is very do-able provided you can find some fabric. Maybe think outside of the box if you can't find yardage. Look for pillowcases, sheets, etc....those can provide wonderful fabric to turn into crafty things!! :) I have been praying that you will find or be able to make the pillows that you are dreaming of.

Love your "new" Fall decorations!! So pretty. Today in a restaurant we had cauliflower cheese soup. It was delicious! No lumps of cauliflower at all. I've got to go online and find a recipe for it!
