Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

Grace is picky. I don’t actually call her picky (in my head or out loud). I would like to believe this is just a phase, and she’s going to grow out of it soon. At least, that’s what I tell myself. We aren’t desperate, but we do play tricks to coax her out of this picky eating business. One such trick is to allow her to plan our meals. Skeptical? It works.

Joe and I have been discussing our summer plans. We are going to minimize our dependence on grocery stores in favor of smaller, more local, and more sustainable options. We’re also going to decrease our meat intake, instead focusing on the wealth of summer veggies. Joe suggested a summer stir fry like the one we had for dinner tonight. I could eat this (or some variation of it) every … Read more
