I am happy to report that the fourth installment from the Pubbelly group is absolutely delicious!

- Beef-Scallion Skewers
- Thai Crumbled Beef in Lettuce Wraps
- Jasmine Rice (A Taste of Thai Jasmine Rice, from the box)
- Sorbet from The Frieze with ginger pecans on the side (recipe to come)

What initially caught my attention were the words caramelized cauliflower. I love both of them individually, so I was excited to see them together! Continue reading
