Cauliflower and Cheese

Monday 31 March
Marian left this morning, so we were only two again.  To fight off that empty-nest feeling, we figured we'd finish off that giant cauliflower whose first half we had last Tuesday. 
We just boiled the florets until crisp-tender and made a gratin by whipping up a bechamel and cheesing it up with what we had, i.e. the remains of the so-ripe-it's-soupy whole brie we got at the Greenmarket, and some choicer Cotswold gloucester cheese from the Summertown Farmers.  Mixed, topped with breadcrumbs and parmesan, and baked until bubbly.

Sometimes you just want one a one-dish dinner, especially if it's (originally) bigger than your head.
