Last night I was reading through some of my old blog posts while the construction crew were working. I was told unequivocally that I was not to help.
And not surprisingly, I read several posts where I put myself down because either I had an impromptu dinner out and didn’t make the best choice. Or I hadn’t been to the gym in a week.
If someone told me they went out with friends and had a burger, would I tell them they have no self control and just give up?
So I am going to try to treat myself as I would anybody else. As my friend Lynne said, it’s time to say goodbye to the struggle bus and jump on the self-love bus. I hear the seats are much nicer on that bus 🤣👍🏻
I had a breakfast parfait yesterday and when I went to put it in my stemless wine glass, I pulled it out of my desk drawer and it was broken 😞 so I give you a parfait …bowl. One cup plain Chobani (4) 2 tablespoons of granola, craisins and slivered almonds (4) with mango and kiwi.
My sister had to stick around her office so I was on my own for my lunch time walk. I walked north, found a giant Jewel on Ohio and State street (good to know), and picked up a cup of tomato soup at Potbelly’s.
I lucked out last night – no one signed up for night secretary so I got to leave at 5:00. Show of hands how many times you pin a recipe, look at it every time you see your boards, and never make it?! 🙋🏻
I’ve seen buffalo cauliflower bites for a while. This recipe finally happened because I took the easy route and bought cut cauliflower at Trader Joe’s.
I just cleaned out my deep fryer so I had fresh oil. I made this batter for one cup of cauliflower: 1/8 cup flour, 1/8 cup seltzer, 1/2 t. Garlic powder, 1 teaspoon everything but the bagel seasoning. I didn’t add salt to the batter, nor did I salt the cauliflower when it came out of the fryer, because the Frank’s buffalo sauce has plenty of sodium.
Dip cauliflower into batter to coat. Deep fry for 4 minutes at 350 degrees. Then toss in buffalo sauce. The batter is 2 points, the oil is 1 and my Chobani ranch dressing made with Hidden Valley packaged ranch dressing mix came in at another point.
Four points for this whole plate 🙌🏻👊
The dogs have been beside themselves with all the clutter and construction mess and noise – I feel like telling them “I get it!” Roman sat on my lap for a good 30 minutes, which is unusual for him, he’s always on the move when not sleeping.
I am happy to report that the floor has been installed! Only thing left is the trim and the steps which they will do tonight.
I truly am grateful for all their hard work. The only room left to do will be my kitchen, but that will have to wait a bit. Let’s first clean up the mess before making another one. 🤣
I am on my way to weigh in. Jenn is meeting me there. She’s also doing a giveaway on her blog with the G.H. Cretors popcorn – just leave a comment for a chance to win. 👍🏻
Happy Thursday – make it a great day!
