Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Image

I was so excited when I saw this cauliflower in my vegetable bin. I had bought it for Kyle and I to eat over the weekend, but had completely forgot about it! On Monday when I opened up the fridge, wondering what I was going to eat this week I found my beautiful, lovely cauliflower! Who knew vegetables would one day make me so excited?

I had tried a recipe like this before and didn’t love it. There was too much breading and sauce. However, after playing around with it, I think I’ve found the perfect combination. As someone who loves wings, but tries to eat healthy, this stuff is delicious! Image

I had an amazing weekend with Kyle and my Aunt Kathy. I wasn’t able to go home for Easter (always a difficult thing), but Kyle came to visit and we drove up to Indy to spend the day with my Aunt. We went to a delicious Indian restaurant and then spent the day at the zoo. It felt amazing to be outside and focusing on something besides academics and applications. I’m always a bit sad after a fun weekend and cooking is the perfect cure to blues.

And with that, I’m going to bed. It’s 10 pm and I’m sleepy. I had a great day. I went to the Children’s Museum to explore their curation facilities. (My job is amazing!!) Before I go, a couple shots from the zoo:
