The day after vacation…

is so wicked hard. Back to schedules and cooking and cleaning. Back to regular life and bills. It feels so awesome to sleep in your own bed again that you just want to stay there. 

All black seemed appropriate for today

I let myself scroll FB for a while to catch up on what I missed in my friends’ feeds while I was away. Then I made myself get up and face the music. Make the bed. Weigh in. Get dressed to work out. Take preworkout. Write out goals for the month while it kicks in. 

  • No spend month – I don’t usually put things in the negative but I need to remind myself to cut back on stupid expenses. Unsubscribing from stupid clothes emails will help. I really don’t need that outfit you’re trying to sell me. 
  • No dairy, gluten or sugar – no, I don’t have celiac officially. I just know that these 3 really do a job on my GI tract and I’m better off without them. 
  • Take the time to tidy KM way. I have started KonMari a couple times but haven’t made it all the way through. The areas I’ve done have stayed awesome. I want my whole house to spark joy. It will also help with #1. So often I’ll buy stuff I already have because I forgot I got it (ask hubby about Phantom of the Opera sometime. He loves to tease me about it.)

Wonderful Wednesday

We dropped Grampy off at the Greyhound then came home to COOK!  It’s cauliflower cooking day since we found amazing cauliflower rice at Costco this week. 

Go KOP Costco!!!!

First we made some FixAte cookbook Grandma Calabrese tomato sauce. 

I always double the recipe and use good drinking wine and cheese

Then we made some Nom Nom Paleo meatballs. These are in her cookbook only so go get it! Dairy free, gluten free, egg free and kid approved. 


A byproduct is amazing mashed cauliflower. I love it with some ghee or nutritional yeast. 


After we ate the yummy meatballs, it was time to make some Autumn Calabrese gluten free cauliflower breadsticks. They were delicious. 


It was a very productive day full of yummy cauliflower food.
