From my desk: 01/13/2020

I am hoping that now that the holidays have passed I can get myself back into a routine, especially with my writing. I’m sure most people don’t pay that much attention, but I used to write much more frequently and in more volume. I enjoy writing and realize how much I miss it when I haven’t given myself the time.

My “A Name A Day” challenge isn’t really getting a response. I had one blogger ask for a name to be used but that was it. I have now used over forty names and although I am sure I will never run out of names, I am running out of ideas for using the names. I have a name set for tomorrow but I am thinking I might just end it there. I get quite a few “likes” on these posts, but I don’t think it is really appealing to anyone. That being said, it is okay, I am okay with it. This was something I wanted to do to promote positivity and although it didn’t seem to work in this fashion, I will find something new!

Last Sunday and this past Sunday we had showings on our house. We have not received any feedback, positive or negative, regarding the house. I suppose when it is right the perfect buyer will come and love it. I just wish it would happen. I am anxious to move closer to my father and into an area where there is more sunshine!

I used to be a health coach. Haha, yeah I know, if you saw me now I am not exactly the epitome of health, but I am trying to get back to eating better and exercising. It is difficult in the Northeast, as it is cold, it gets dark early, and I live on a wooded street with few houses that is super scary to walk in the dark. Again, laugh if you must, but I do get spooked easily. I am known for imagining that serial killers live in the woods near my home. Too much television in my younger years perhaps? Anyhow, there is a point to this! I used to make, and have begun making again, cauliflower crusts for pizza. The recipe is super easy and you can make them ahead of time, pop them in the freezer and then thaw as you need them. How do you make them?

I use a food processor and buy two heads of cauliflower. You can use already “riced” cauliflower but the one in the freezer at the supermarket has a lot of water and the crust have to be baked for longer.

1. rice cauliflower
2. In a bowl, mix 1 cup of the riced cauliflower, 1 egg, and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Mix them then poor the mixture out onto a greased piece of parchment paper. Spread out and form into a crust.
3. Bake at 425 degrees (Farenheit) for 25 minutes.

One head of cauliflower usually makes 3 to 4 crusts.
You can use 1/4 cup of egg whites instead of the whole egg if you want to cut calories.
It is best to use lower fat cheese, also for calories, but I use whatever I have.

Peace to all and enjoy the week ahead!
