Speed cooking?

OK, so I have a unique situation. I can zip (on my scooter) home for lunch and I'm home in 5 minutes flat. I know that's not realistic for most, but it doesn't take away from the fact that you can make these types of dishes in the morning and bring them in for lunch. This particular lunch took me 17 minutes to make. (and just 1 to eat ;-) it was so delicious)
Mashed cauliflower with wasabi and grass fed ground beef with celery, onions, garlic and tamari.
Boil the cauliflower for about 7 minutes (once boiling), in some butter saute the garlic, onion and celery. Add the ground beef, cook and add some tamari at the end.
Drain the cauliflower, put it in a blender add some butter and a splash of half and half. you need very little. Add wasabi and blend together.
Again, I really don't know the measurements that I cook with. I liberally use organic butter and olive oil.
If helpful, I will start documenting it more clearly. Just let me know.

CREATE a great day!

How about moving to Corpus Christi and cook for me! :-) Your stuff sounds (and looks) so good!


P.S. I seriously considering a scooter as well. It probably wouldn't take all that long to pay for itself in gas these days.

Thanks Dave!
What if I opened a little deli and cooked like this? Do you think people would eat there? I often wonder about it, as I just enjoy the heck out of it.

Scooter: I'll post a pic soon. I really enjoy getting gas. I actually save change in a little change purse ;-)
It costs about $4.00 to fill her up and thats 93 super. I get about 100 miles out of it. I can't even start my SUV for $4.00. ;-)

I live less than a mile from my office (next neighborhood over), so coming home for lunch is very common. Certainly makes it easier to eat well considering the choices for restaurants here, and it's cheaper & less hassle.

I had one part time job where I couldn't go home, so either had to pack or go out for something. I started out packing lunch all the time, but as the weeks went by it became easier to just say "screw it" and get a burger & steak fries at Dairy Queen. I miss that job, but not the daily temptation.

Can't wait to see pics of your scooter, that's gotta be so fun. Scooters aren't practical here, I have a little Outback Sport, but wish I didn't *need* a car to go everywhere. We lack sidewalks here.

The scooter is fun.
I feel like a little kid every time I ride it.

Now that I know you are close to more excuses allowed ;-)
