valentine's day.

Today is Thursday. And I didn't realize it was Valentine's Day until like yesterday. The whole Vincent-asked-me-if-he-could-go-to-a-handball-game makes more sense in this context. Yes, that's right. He forfeited a valentine-filled night with me for a handball game with his brother and father. French people.

Anyhoo.

I had a pretty big cauliflower in my fridge. And I wanted to make it into something delicious and awesome.

So, I had a quick meeting with my cook's companion (thank you oh so dear friend) and decided to give some middle eastern cauliflower fritters a go. I mean how can cauliflower + fritter + middle eastern be bad, am I right?

And yes, that's a beer. Not a Leffe, but something as equally satisfying. Stop judging. 
I got to use my mortar pestle; I got to shred some vegetables. I got to use chili powder. Where has this recipe been all my life?!

I made these bad boys and accompanied them with a bit of m√Ęche and a lovely yogurt sauce. And some more beer. 



Like I said. Happy Valentine's Day.
