Try it Tuesday: Creamy Cauliflower Garlic Rice

Every Tuesday we're going to scour Pinterest and the interwebs to bring you a new recipe direct from our kitchens (settle down now!) The other night I went to my food pinterest board and picked out this recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Garlic Rice from Pinch of Yum. Actually, I'm lying. I picked this out LAST Wednesday because I knew I was going to be going to the grocery store ALONE on Saturday so I made sure to plan ahead what we were going to have for dinner this week. If you're wondering, it was as glorious as it sounds.

Ratings (1-10):

Will my kid trash my house in the amount of time it takes to make this recipe? 8
This takes a lot of time for a dish of rice. Then again, this is coming from the person who buys Trader Joe's frozen rice that takes 3 minutes from freezer to table.

Will I need a bottle of wine and/or shots to get through this recipe? 4
This recipe is not really difficult, but at the same time it's not a quick 5 minute side. 

Will my sink be overflowing with dirty dishes? 3
I only used 6 things that needed to be cleaned to make this dish: Cutting board, colander, knife, skillet, spoon, dish to hold rice, which in the grand scheme of thing is nothing. My problem with cooking (aside from thinking about what to make, how I'm going obtain the ingredients without my toddler throwing himself on the floor of the grocery store, etc) is how much of an F-in mess it makes. Luckily for me I worked out a little deal with the hubby where I plan and buy the ingredients to make the mess meal and he cleans it up. I'm not SOULESLESS (see: http://foodfashfamfun.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-most-dramatic-rose-ceremony-everbut.html) so I try to keep the amount of dishes to a minimum.

Is this edible? 5
It was definitely edible, but nothing outstanding. It's nice that the vegetables are part of the recipe but it wasn't anything I'd make again in the foreseeable future.

F-IT! Go to any grocery store and get frozen rice. Microwave and enjoy.

The finished product. Meh.
