Hey Ho!

No, I'm not calling you a Ho! I just liked that title for some reason!

Spring is finally springing around these parts! It's 63 out right now with beautiful sunshine! It's supposed to hit 68 degrees. All the trees are finally starting to turn green and all the bushes have buds on them! Come on Spring! Love it!

Let's see what's been going on lately.

I made a pizza dough with ground cauliflower last weekend. It actually turned out pretty good. You ground cauliflower until you have 4 cups. Then mix in one egg, a cup of mozzarella cheese and some Italian seasoning. It's pretty thick and you just press it out on a pan. The recipe said to use parchment paper but I didn't have any so I just sprayed the pan really good. In retrospect I should have used parchment paper.It stuck pretty good!!

Anyway, here it is before cooking.



Here it is after cooking for 15 minutes at 450. Slightly burnt around the edges but looks pretty good.


And finally the finished product with turkey pepperoni, onion and cheese.


It tasted just like a pizza with a cauliflower crust! I liked it a lot...Rich did too but I'm not so sure he would want to substitute it for a regular pizza all of the time!  Anyway, when you can't eat wheat it's nice to know you can still find some good substitutes!

Speaking of my wheat free diet! I've lost 17 pounds since starting the diet the Saturday after Christmas. Slow but steady!

Of course at work they never make things easy! This was a huge basket of candy to celebrate National Laboratory Week! It was sitting right by me too!


I grabbed a few pieces to take home to Rich but did not eat any myself. Luckily it didn't last very long!

Well best go try to get some housework done! It will be nice to get the windows open later today!

Until the next time..

Well, Hey to you also; happy to see you.

(I could be a HO, but you'll never know for sure!) :)

That pizza looks really good. It's funny you mentioned cauliflower; I cooked some Friday after not having it in forever. I don't know why I can't remember to buy it. I love it especially with cheese.

GIRL! Good for you on the weight loss. That's awesome, buddy. Proud of you!!!!

I'm going to have to check out the "not eating wheat" since several of y'all have mentioned it.

Have a blessed day!
