Oh God, it's the cauliflower that ate Van Nuys!

This is the first year we've had a place with a yard big enough to grow produce. I pooh-poohed the people who said "only plant two of each thing", because as any good East Coast gardener knows, half your plants will die or need to be thinned for the good of the herd.

Not so in Southern California. They ALL sprouted.

So I just picked the first of our cauliflowers out of the garden (we got started late, thank God it's been a cool spring).

It weighs thirteen pounds.

I have seven others in development that are headed toward that size.

What on EARTH do I do with that much cauliflower, besides give it away? I already have plans for low-carb-type "mashed potatoes", and of course orecchiette with cauliflower, oil and garlic, but beyond just steaming it and eating it with cheese sauce or butter, what do I do with a hundred pounds of cauliflower?!
