What a day!

Well today went from good, to bad!  I got up, kicked Shawn T's butt in Insanity.  I owned him this morning.  I was dripping in sweat and it felt SO good. My daughter was coughing last night and when she woke up this morning she was a bit warm and said that her head hurt and she didn't feel good. LOVELY.  Good thing is there wasn't school today.  Bad thing is that I had to work, and she was looking forward to spending the day at my sisters house.  I showered and got ready for the day thinking that she probably was just coming down with a little cold, I could drug her up and she would be good to go for a few hours so I could get some work done.  Nope.  She started throwing up.  Poor little thing.  She has literally spent the day just laying around, and puking.  She ate around 1:30 and kept it down for a few hours but it didn't last long.  I am hoping that she will feel all better tomorrow and no one else will get it.  Needless to say work had to live without me today.  I am sure they survived ;)

A recipe that I MUST share.  It is to die for amazing.  I have made it twice now, I will post the most recent way because it was a little healthier.  Original recipe I got from here but I changed it up a bit.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Preheat oven to 450
First thing you want to do is take a half a head of cauliflower and "rice it".  This is super easy.  I used a cheese grater (a little messy) just grate it up, throw it in the microwave for 8 minutes.  No water, just the cauliflower.

 Next thing is to season it up a bit.  I used these ingredients.  You could basically add whatever you want, I omitted the cheese the original recipe called for because I didn't feel like I needed it in the crust but I might "need" some on top :)  Pick your battles.  Along with seasonings I added one whole egg.  Mix it up real good.

 I covered my pizza dish with foil and sprayed it with PAM, then pressed the "crust" onto the pan.  It will look like this. Place in preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Take a photo of your kid.  Make sure he looks as excited as you are about the yummy pizza you are about to make, while enjoying his morning waffles!

Chop up some veggies (these were my toppings of choice) 

I sauteed them while the crust was baking.  I like them better this way.  To each their own.  

Once crust is done, turn on your broiler to high.  While that is heating up top it with whatever sauce you would like.  I chose to use no salt added tomato sauce.

I threw on the veggies and used about 1/4 C of reduced fat cheddar cheese and reduced fat mozzerella cheese to top it with.

Put it under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.  It gets all melty and gooey!  Mmmmm!

And that my friends is my new favorite meal.  It tastes NOTHING like what you would think it would taste like.
