Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

I really liked this weekend. I did....ummmm....nothing. I slept 20+ hours, ate A LOT of food, and watched Disney movies. And movies about love. Terrible idea. I hate Hollywood love. It's unrealistic. And bullsh*t. I'm not bitter.

Moving on. I've been sad lately. You know why? Because the latest season of Jersey Shore ended. Oh stop judging me. That show is like a car accident, you slam on your breaks just to get a peek. If I want to feel better about myself, that show is the perfect fix. If I ever have a drunken fail, I watch that show, and don't feel like a drunk. And if I ever think my outfit is inappropriate, that show reassures me that I could be far more disrespectful in the way I dress. Maybe I'll try that. They seem to really attract the classiest of dudes with the lack of underwear and extremely short dresses they sport at the clubs. Lord, that show is a joy.

One more reason I'm sad...I tried going jeans shopping (once again) this past weekend. I don't know why I do this to myself on a regular basis. Well, I mainly do it so I will go out on a Friday night and be social, and having regular people clothes helps with that. I seriously should have taken pictures in the dressing room. It would have been humiliating for me, but at least you would have had a good laugh on this Tuesday morning. My thighs and ass barely fit into the jeans, so once I have them on, it looks like I'm wearing a diaper. I think I need to buy extreme bell bottom jeans to make my thighs look smaller. In the old days (meaning 2 years ago) I used to sport some pretty intense flare jeans. I say intense flare, some people would say bell bottoms. TomAto, Tomato. Know what I'm sayin? Me neither.

What you need:
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons canned coconut milk
  • salt and pepper
What you do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Chop up your cauliflower into smaller florets and place in a large baking dish to roast.
  3. You'll also need to roast your garlic, so cut off the end of your head of garlic to show the clover. Sprinkle a bit of olive oil on the head of garlic then wrap foil around it.
  4. Place your cauliflower and foil packet in the oven to bake for about 30-35 minutes.
  5. Once everything is roasted away, remove from oven.
  6. Place roasted cauliflower in your wonderful food processor along with roasted garlic cloves. To get the cloves from the head of garlic, just squeeze them out of use a fork to pull them out. I just took the head of garlic and squeezed the sh*t out of it, into my food processor.
  7. Turn food processor on, pulse until garlic and cauliflower begin to become a paste, then add olive oil and coconut milk to help form your preferred texture. If you want it a bit smoother, add a little more coconut milk. Just play it by ear. 
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Consume. I ate mine with a bacon wrapped deer steak. Fantastic.
I love roasting anything. And everything.

Extremely good photography. You're welcome.
