Cauliflower Bites

The key to making these cauliflower bites is to get them into the oven as soon as they are shaped. I did not do that, hence the cheese ‘leaking’ out. That in no way detracted from the taste. Or from the fact that we devoured this entire batch for lunch.

It has been more than 5 years at least since I bought myself a new wallet. I replaced my old one when it was completely worn out. And I chose something that would do dual ‘work’ for both being at home, and on holiday. For the past couple of years, I have been setting off the security alarms entering or leaving certain shops. It has not been consistent, and merely an inconvenience proving I have not stolen anything. I turned my entire handbag inside out and cleaned it, thinking a security strip had come off something I had bought. When I could not find anything, I did the same for my bag that I take into the shops that holds all my shopping bags. And I checked each and every shopping bag. I then decided it had to be my keys.

Last month when I went shopping I forgot to buy fruit. I went back on the Sunday and as I opened my wallet I realized my store card was missing. I knew it had to be at the shop as I had used it there last two days before hand. While I was waiting for the manager to go and get it out of the safe I started cleaning out my wallet. And lo and behold, there was a security strip in the one section. It was not hidden away, and I am not sure how on earth I have never seen it. So, it was fortuitous that I had forgotten my card at the store as now I knew what had been setting the shops alarm systems off. I took it out, tossed it away, and have had no issues since then.
