Dinner Date

Last night I had a dinner date with Rebecca.  Liz was also supposed to join us, but she wasn't feeling well.  We missed her.  Rebecca and I decided that we would cook for our dinner date instead of going out.  I am glad we did!  If you have not met the wonder that is cauliflower with laughing cow cheese, let me introduce you!

Cheesy Cauliflower

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 6 wedges of light laughing cow Swiss cheese
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Core your cauliflower and steam until tender.

Rebecca has this cool steamer that allows you to put herbs in the steamer to add flavor.  We added fresh rosemary and it added an awesome taste to the cauliflower.  Yum!  Don't worry, this recipe is also delicious without the bonus rosemary.  :)

Add the hot cauliflower to a large bowl and combine with cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  The cauliflower will fall apart and you almost end up with a mashed potato type consistency.  The recipe made 6 servings which tallied to one weight watchers point + per serving.  It seemed a too good to be just one point, so I logged it as two.

Dinner on a Christmas plate :)

Yum!  We baked chicken drumsticks that Rebecca had seasoned in Allegro (you can read about Allegro in this post) and steamed green beans that we tossed with seasoned salt and a little olive oil cooking spray.  Delicious.

And of course there was a little wine.

I got to drink out of Rebecca's cute new wine glass.  She and some friends did a Christmas exchange of glasses, everyone brought a glass and they did a white elephant exchange.  What a great idea!  Do you have any cool Christmas traditions with your friends?


  1. everything looks great! I think I need to revisit the cauliflower-instead-of-potatoes thing again!

  2. It is delicious! I like the substitution especially with a little cheese! :)


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments make my day and I do my very best to respond to each and every one of them.
