Día de los Niños is a celebration of children, families, and reading that culminates yearly on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. San Diego County Library extends its celebration of Día throughout April.
At 19 parks throughout the county, you can read stories and enjoy nature at San Diego County Library Story Trails! These original stories were written and designed by library staff and we are so excited to share them with you. Choose your location, choose your Story Trail! Each site has two stories for your enjoyment. To find the park closest to you, click here.
And kids and teens 18 and under can stop by your local County Library location any time in April and pick up a Dia de los Ninos activity pack! I’m taking the kids to get theirs this week!
I’ve seen this kind of recipe before and I had never made it because it’s really hard to pick decent fresh cauliflower, and honestly, frozen cauliflower is always kinda… soggy (?) when you defrost it and cook it.
We’ve been getting a lot of cauliflower in our Yasukochi Family Farms CSA box over the past 5 weeks, so I figured it was time to give it a shot.
This recipe is easy. And tasty. It does not duplicate potato skins. I don’t care what any low carb/potato hating website tells you.
Loaded Roasted Cauliflower
2 heads of cauliflower, leaves and stem removed, cut into bite sized pieces
2 T. Olive oil or your favorite cooking oil
salt and pepper
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup bacon crumbles (use real bacon, not baco’s)
4 green onions, chopped
Sour Cream (optional, but tasty)
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place cookie sheets lined with foil into oven to heat up with the oven.
While oven/pan is heating, toss cauliflower in oil, salt & pepper.
Once oven is heated to 450, remove pan, spread cauliflower out in a single, well spaced layer.
Bake for 8 minutes, then turn veggies to roast evenly.
Return to oven and bake for another 8 minutes.
Remove from oven. Top with cheese and bacon. Broil for 2-4 minutes, until cheese is melty and bacon is hot.
After removing from broiler, top with green onions and eat up ASAP.
Serve with sour cream, or salsa. Or both.
This serves 2-4 people as a side dish, or be greedy and eat the whole recipe as a main dish. I won’t tell anyone. I make this at least once a week.
This recipe is gluten free. You can make it vegetarian by omitting the bacon.
