Hair and cauliflower cheese!

 Dreary morning but it's supposed to clear up this afternoon.....I hope so because....I'm having my hair cut this afternoon.  After reading Happy Hooker's comment about nearly scalping herself with the trimmer, I've bottled out, I just don't think I could do it myself properly.  And I don't trust husband - he'll probably scalp me.  Or slice my ears off ๐Ÿ˜‚

So my lovely hairdresser neighbour/friend has agreed to cut my hair.  We won't be using her little home salon, we'll be in her garden....hence hoping the weather improves, although she does have a big garden parasol thing.  We'll both be wearing masks and gowns, she'll just be cutting my hair, not blow drying it, and I won't stay for coffee or a chat.  So thank you for the suggestion, Mrs LH.

Cheryl from the US asked about cauliflower cheese (fancy you never hearing of it before, we have it regularly).  I've frozen it both cooked and uncooked (just assembled), it works both ways.  I would just say if you've frozen it cooked, when you come to reheat it, put some foil over the top if you put it in the oven, so it doesn't burn.  Or you could heat it up in the microwave.  We sometimes have it as a main meal rather than a side that case, I use broccoli as well as cauli, and add diced bacon or sliced sausage and onion (which I quickly fry off first), and some cooked pasta mixed in with it too, so it becomes a sort of cauli mac n cheese with extras.  I also add mushrooms, peas, diced peppers, or any other veg that needs using up.  Let's face it, anything tastes good with a cheese sauce over the top.  I sometimes sprinkle the top with a mixture of breadcrumbs, herbs or smoked paprika and grated cheese before putting in the oven.  Or croutons rather than breadcrumbs - they give a nice textural crunch.  Experiment, using what you've got - I do it all the time.

Oh good....the sun's just come out ๐Ÿ˜


  1. Sorry I scared you about the hair trimmer! It was probably user error. I think I panicked when I saw all this hair falling to the ground. I'm sure if I'd carried on it would have been OK, just a bit shorter than I like! I certainly wouldn't let my hubby do it though. I would be bald! xx

  2. Cauliflower cheese is one of those dishes that we both love but for some reason don't eat that often. I've just had a cauli delivered so am going to set to and make one.

  3. I allowed hubby to cut the back of my hair only because it was so scruffy. He will not allow me near his...I wonder why๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. There is your cooking mojo coming really know what to do.

  5. I'm glad you got your hair situation sorted! I wish one of my neighbours was a hairdresser. I bet you feel better for a good cut.

  6. Thanks for the reply, yes never heard of it until YouTube.
