In case you haven't heard me say it before, Two Peas and Their Pod is one of my favorite blogs! Maria and Josh are always cooking/baking up something amazing. I keep encouraging them to open a restaurant!! Any who, they recently posted about their adventures with making Gnocchi. You may recall that I have made gnocchi once before, but I did it using forks to mash the potatoes because I didn't have one of these babies:
Yes! I used my new ricer to prep my gnocchi tonight and freeze it so it can be eaten later in the week. I used Maria and Josh's recipe that you can find here.

Thank you Maria and Josh! I cannot wait to eat this later in the week.
For dinner tonight I made some fiestaflower mash:
I have seen colored cauliflower on K's blog and have been interested in making it ever since. The Taproduce website notes the following about fiestaflower:
"Fiestaflower™ has 25 times more vitamin A than white cauliflower and contains so much beta-carotene it actually causes the cauliflower to take on the orange color. Orange cauliflower contains approximately 320 micrograms of beta-carotene per 100 grams making it much more nutritious than the traditional white cauliflower."
I took my fiestaflower and boiled it up until soft, I then drained the pot and added in 1 tablespoon smart balance, a little bit of cheddar cheese and some milk and mashed it all up. I had my caulimash with a big salad and Josh enjoyed some steak (which accidentally got a little well done since neither of us was paying close attention ;) :
I'm off to go through the bills and our files with Josh (fun, fun!). What are you up to tonight?
