It's the last day of the year and the year past by so quick. There's happened a lot: lost my job, the childeren have grown too fast, started with my meadow, with french fridays with dorie, we've laughed, we've cried, we've been very mad and very happy. And optimistical about 2012. Also because of the sweet words I got from you. From this blog I want to wish everyone a happy 2012.
As for Dorie, she suprised us this day of the year with cauliflower-bacon gratin. Not quite what I'm used to do with my cauliflower. I usually cook it or stirfry it. But as a gratin it was a whole new experience. But that's part of the fun offcourse.
I've made this one on a day my sister in law eats with us, so that's a risk (someone out of my family which I can't hide anything from), but she took twice (and that doesn't happen very often).
It was really very nice. A nice variation on my normal recipe and I'm sure that we are going to make this more often. The only minor comment, personally, is that I would take an extra few minutes to cook the cauliflower. It was somewhat to crunchy for me. But that is a minority.
Do you want to know what the other dorista's made. Look at:
