What's For Dinner? Pork with Cauliflower Puree

When I first read about cauliflower puree it was someone raving about how much it tasted just like mashed potatoes. While it's good, if someone thinks it tastes just like mashed potatoes they have no taste buds, seriously. Making it is simple - steam or boil cauliflower, throw half of it in the food processor with a minimal amount of cooking liquid or broth and process until smooth. Add the remaining cauliflower, a bit of butter, salt, pepper, and a tablespoon or two of parmesan cheese if desired. Pulse a couple times so that the second batch of cauliflower is still a tiny bit chunky. That's it.

The pork tonight was  a repeat - the tenderloin with pomegranate sauce (hey - coming up with a new recipe every night is difficult!).

I upped my workout today - went to level 3 on the PowerSculpt DVD - lots of push-up like work, which is tough. My upper body strength was never great, so it's definitely wobbly arms during those sections.
