I found a new favorite! I had oven roasted cauliflower for dinner and it was scrumptious! Also it was very easy to make. I wish I could have used fresh cauliflower but I had a bag of frozen in the freezer & wanted to do something different. First I put the cauliflower in the microwave for 2 minutes and then spread them out on to a baking sheet I had covered with tin foil & sprayed with EVOO spray. I then seasoned them with dry grated parmesan, garlic sea salt, black pepper & cayenne pepper. Last but not least I drizzled a little bit of EVOO over the top and popped them in the oven for 25 minutes on 425, stirring occasionally. Very satisfying and was only 191 calories for the whole bowl. I chose to dip them in a little bit of ranch. YUM!
I went for my first walk of the year yesterday! It was 40 degrees out and I just felt like getting out and about. It started to mist and then snow a little bit but I kept on going. I actually jogged part of the way to warm up! I didn't realize how much I needed the fresh air. I can't wait for it to get warmer and warmer. Yesterday I also did a workout in the basement and came upstairs to Michael cooking bacon! I was very good and resisted the urge to have some. He even offered me a piece & I said no. I am proud of myself for resisting. Got to keep that will-power muscle strong!
I am in the middle of my 4 day Birthday weekend! I had Friday off of work and have Monday off too. So far I have been relaxing, exercising, wedding planning and anticipating my dress fitting on Monday! I can't wait!
Also tomorrow I will be 25, YIKES! :-)
