    This evening I might be accused of cooking the most expensive idea of a cauliflower accompaniment to a meal imaginable, but in the circumstances it wasn't so bad. To start off, when my beloved ordered the shopping this week, Tesco were offering 2 large cauliflowers for the price of one, so I used some of the free one in this recipe.
    I like cauliflower a bit, but it's always struck me that it needs something else to make it a star. I'll often cook cauliflower cheese, but not as a meal in itself, instead as an accompaniment to a roast. I save any leftover cauliflower cheese and mix it with other leftover veg to freeze into patties that can later be baked or grilled as a quick addition to another meal.
    So tonight, I invented spicy saffron cauliflower which worked rather well. I added the remaining 1/3rd of a packet of saffron and a decent pinch of dried chili to the water I cooked the cauliflower in, turned it off long before the cauliflower was completely cooked and let the favours infuse. It certainly took the cauliflower to another level.
    I saved the cooking liquid on this occasion so I can try it out again tomorrow for completely free.
  2. You seem to think you invent things.
    You don't.

    Bad time of the month again? I can truely say that if you and I were married I'd be suggesting you had a lie down and be warming hot water bottles for you.
    Maybe TES needs a misanthrophy forum as well as a cookery forum. Maybe it needs a misogionist forum too?

  4. Nah, never have that. And you cannae provoke me with that kinda stuff.
    I think we would kill each other - or be so on one wavelength as to know when to shut up as to never have problems - I am never quite sure with you.
    I think we polarise but you can't do really happy without me, and I miss you when you are not being bolshy.
    It is like a *** comedy show.

    I've got a Jeff Beck haircut. You either live with it or accept you can't deal with stuff that confronts the normal expectations the world has of people in my age group.
    As a by the by, it was interesting to read the story todat about Brian May alowing his home to also become home to a disabled hedgehog. Did you see the photo? He's gone as grey as a bagful of grey things.
