Easy Cauliflower Curry

After coming back home this afternoon, I resisted the urge to sit on my couch and watch some tivo’d CSI:NY, and instead headed out for a walk around my neighborhood. I ambled over the hill to Glen Park, an adorable little neighborhood filled with cute restaurants and shops.

I popped into Bird and Beckett , one of my favorite bookstores to check things out. Even on the days I’m not working at the bookstore, I end up looking at books. Apparently it’s a common syndrome of people who work in the field. I ended up leaving with a copy of their new literary review, which, I’ll admit, I purchased because of how great it looks! They tell you not to judge a book by it’s cover, but I find that books that have great covers tend to have good content in between. I’ve been flipping through it, and I’m pretty glad I took it home with me.

I walked through Canyon Market (another great independent grocery store), and then headed over to Perch, a little store that has the most carefully selected home-ware, stationary, bags, children’s clothes, jewelry, and other curiosities.

I was actually on a mission – I’m looking for a really perfect ceramic tea mug, to add a little something to my tea drinking routine. Perch didn’t quite have what I was looking for today, but I had to seriously restrain myself buying the entire store.

By the time I got home, I checked my pedometer and I had gotten in my 10,000 steps!

Because I had a pretty rich lunch, I decided to go on the light side for dinner.

Devon also has a long Wednesday night, so it’s me-time and I can eat a bowl full of vegetables without having to worry that the meal isn’t quite rounded enough.

I made a simple cauliflower curry, heating a can of Thai Kitchen Light Coconut milk on medium heat with a few slices of fresh ginger, adding a heaping tablespoon of curry powder, and then adding in about two cups of cauliflower. I covered the pot with the lid and turned it down to low, letting the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, and seasoned it with a bit of sea salt. This would have been good with a small handful of cashews added in, but I didn’t have any on hand. I topped it with cilantro, and it was a really satisfying meal.

We are watching some basketball, and then to bed!!

Goodnight everyone!
