TeachEatRepeat Recipe: Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

We think cauliflower is quite possibly the world’s most versatile vegetable. What can’t it do? We haven’t answered that question yet because the other night we decided we wanted an entirely grilled meal, but the only veggie in the house was cauliflower. Knowing its superhero-like powers, we decided to give it a go. And as per the usual, cauliflower won. Salty, tangy, hefty, and charred, this new recipe may take the cake as our favorite cauliflower creation yet!

OGPS’s first graders created a music video called “Watch Me Whip…Watch Me Learn” to the tune of Silento’s “Watch Me.” We are not worthy. Check out the full video below.

Anyone who says teachers have summers off has probably never met a teacher. While their work year is technically September to June (or August to May in the warmer states—I’m looking at you, Arizona), teachers’ brains don’t take a summer vacation. Summers are filled with lesson plan prep, curriculum designing, professional development seminars, and reading, reading, reading.
