Dry Erase Marker Bouquet {Teacher Appreciation Gift}

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and Tuesday the 7th is Teacher Appreciation Day. My daughter loves her teacher and we wanted to thank her for all the work she has done for my daughter's class this year. I wanted the gift to be something her teacher could use, but still be cute. I came across this adorable idea for a Dry Erase Marker Bouquet from The Happy Scraps, and decided to make my own spin on it.

I picked up a pack of Expo Markers and a Gift Card from Target. I had everything else left over from my daughter's Lalaloopsy Birthday Party.

I used a fine tip Sharpie to draw around the edges of the foam flowers (from Oriental Trading Company), and just placed the tip of the markers through pre-cut holes in the flowers. I used tissue paper to hold the markers in place, and taped a wooden skewer (with the tip cut off) to the gift card.

I hope this little gesture lets her teacher know how grateful we are for all that she does!

Baked Cauliflower

Lately the only vegetable my daughter wants to eat is cauliflower. I am kind of getting tired of steamed cauliflower so I went to my fail proof way of cooking vegetables and the cauliflower was delicious. My family actually ate an entire head of cauliflower for dinner.

Baked Cauliflower

1 head cauliflower, cleaned and chopped
olive oil

1. Clean and chop your cauliflower.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
3. Place the cauliflower in a large bowl and drizzle with just enough olive oil to coat the cauliflower.
4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
5. Toss the cauliflower until evenly coated.
6. Spread the cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or non-stick foil.
7. Bake the cauliflower for 30-40 minutes, turning part way through.

Serve as a side or a snack. My kids like dipping it in ketchup, but I like it just as it is.
