"Onions again?" was the first question asked by Jennifer Ramos-Quinones as we started taking out the ingredients for this weeks meal.  She was quickly reminded how she didn't taste the onions in last weeks veggie pitas.  Students were excited to try something new this week, as everyone, has never had cauliflower before.  The aroma of the rosemary spread throughout the kitchen, making the anticipation of eating the drumsticks increase.  Although the cauliflower was not a favorite to some, everyone tried the dish with no complaints.  Overall, students left with smiling faces as Ta'Von Johnson states, "I'm going to ask my mom if we can make this for dinner tonight."
