I can't believe it's Thanksgiving next week! Whaaattt?
I know I'm not alone feeling this way because so many of us have talked about how it really does feel like the end of the year crept up on us so suddenly.
I confess I just finalized my grocery list sitting in front of the TV last night & this year instead of having a girl's night out trying to catch up, my gal pal Beth & I are going to meet up at the grocery store and shop together for Thanksgiving!
If you're not a foodie, this would be totally weird but if you are, you'd get this...it's culinary girl bonding at it's very best!
Peet's coffee to top it off is always a good idea too!
So, I meant to get this incredible crostini recipe out to you well in advance but a late night Saturday is just going to have to do. Hopefully some of you are still trolling the web for amazing appetizers. This one channels everything I love about Sicilian cuisine - roasted cauliflower which is celebrated with the sweetness of raisins, parsley and is just wonderful.
I created it for my small plates class and was so loved! I must say if you try searching the web for cauliflower crostinis most of them have you boiling the cauliflower (yuck) and turning into goop (uber yuck!) - who want's baby food on their appetizer! But then again, maybe that's just me.
Give this a go, and turn it into vegetarian by just skipping the proscuitto or serve it on the side and folks can dig in as they want.
