Dear Friends,

When the night looks like this:
(Does it look cold? Not really? Well trust me. . .brrr.)

You should definitely consider making this for dinner:

It's the Pioneer Woman's cauliflower soup and heavens was it good. I think you should try it even if you don't love cauliflower. Because Joe claims to hate cauliflower, but he certainly polished off a big bowl of this. And he didn't even resort to the "I'm just really hungry." He admitted that it was, in fact, delicious. In spite of that dreaded vegetable. Well of course, the sour cream and butter and half and half mean that it doesn't taste so much like cauliflower. More like, um, butterfat. But don't be scared. I made a half recipe, and then I still cut the butter in half again (and used light sour cream, and 1% milk instead of the whole milk that the recipe suggests), and it was still perfectly rich and delicious, but not overpowering or heavy. And the half recipe was enough for two meals for our little family.
So like I said. When it's a cold night and soup sounds good, give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.
*This was last night's homemade dinner. Tonight? Tonight was leftover soup for Mom, and grilled cheese sandwiches for Joe and Mia, before Joe headed out to class.
