First of all, I can’t thank you enough for all your wonderful comments on my Fitness Palooza post. You are all WAY to kind and I feel kind of silly that I shared that on here. I was just so excited because seriously, I have NEVER won an award before. So, I really don’t deserve it, but I will cherish it forever, hang it high (so the boys can’t get to it) and let it serve as my inspiration to keep learning and growing as an instructor and trainer.
Okay, now on to the coo coo business.
Last week looked a little like this.
We just didn’t know what to do with ourselves.
Earlier in the week I bought some cauliflower to try to amend things. I had forgotten about my little white flowered friend since my latest obsession with the broccoli slaw.
Cauliflower saved the day and made a couple appearances for dinner.
First appearance was for the tots.
Quickie Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese
I just took a packet of Trader Joe’s single serving mac and cheese and added some cut up cauliflower to the noodles before microwaving. I also added a little extra water (about 2-4 tablespoons).
After microwaving for 3 and a half minutes I added the cheese mix and an extra Laughing Cow light cheese wedge.
It was glorious and the boys loved it!
Second appearance was for mama.
I decided to roast it in the oven.
Parmesan Garlic Roasted Cauliflower
1 head of cauliflower
olive oil cooking spray
Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Spread cauliflower evenly over cookie sheet. Spray cooking spray and then sprinkle on seasonings, salt and parmesan to taste.
Roast in oven at 425 for 15-20 minutes.
Notes- I didn’t write exact measurements because I just sprinkle it on to taste. I figured serving sizes are different and so are taste preferences.
This is great just on it’s own as a side dish.
I like to eat it with a side of marinara.
Or pretend it’s pasta and top it with marinara (and some red pepper).
Okay, see you tomorrow. My burritos are done and my jalapeño and habanero peppers need to be cut. He he!
There may also be a little show called Dancing With the Stars waiting for me on the DVR. See you tomorrow!
