Roasted Cauliflower Laptop Lunchbox #19

This past week has been a crazy one!
Full of exams, projects, and perfect 21st birthday festivities!
But, more importantly I am so blessed to have such great people
in my life to help me celebrate another birthday!
Seriously my friends are perfect!
& of course so is this boy! <3
Okay, enough mushiness back to food!
Today's delicious breakfast was some cooked,
warm apple oatmeal! Can you tell I'm so happy it's Fall?!

Cooked Cinnamon Sugar Apple Oatmeal

1 1/2 Cups Water
1 TBS Sugar
2 TSP Brown Sugar
1/2 Honey Crisp Apple
Cinnamon To Taste
1/2 Cup Of Dry Oats
Water For Desired Texture

Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add in sugars, stirring
constantly until completely dissolved. Add in apples and cinnamon
to taste and let cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes stirring
every once in a while so the sugars don't stick and burn on the
bottom.Turn down heat to about 3 and let cook for an additional
20 minutes without stirring until apples are cooked to desired softness.
So, for some reason lately, allll I've been wanting
is some warm, roasted vegetables! I think it's probably
because here in Texas it's still in the upper 80s in October!
So late last night , after realizing I still hadn't made my lunch
for today I decided I would use the head of cauliflower sitting in my fridge!

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Calories: 424
1 Medium Head Of Cauliflower
2 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
~4 TBS Of Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese
*Garlic Powder, Onion Powder,
Salt & Pepper To Taste!

Start by preheating your oven to 350. Place your washed
cauliflower florets into a 9x13 casserole dish, and top with your EVOO,
parmesan cheese and *desired seasonings. Cover with foil (or a lid)
& bake for 25 minutes. My cauliflower was not tender enough for me,
so I then put it up to 400 degrees for an additional 20 minutes.
I also wanted a nice color to them, so I took off the foil, and
put them back in for 5-10 minutes with the broil on high!
