I tried something a little different for lunch today.
Yes, Pinterest has gotten to me again and the allure of a cauliflower pizza crust was rather intriguing. I mean, why not give it a shot?
I followed the recipe I had pinned from HERE. It was really simple – grate the cauliflower, cook it, mix it with egg and cheese, then bake it.
The “crust” wasn’t your typical pizza crust. There was no slicing of individual slices or picking pieces up with your hands. It was more spongy, almost like an extra thin frittata, and you had to eat it with a fork. I wouldn’t say it was bad, it was pretty good actually just on it’s own.
I did a Mexican themed “pizza” and added salsa as the base, then leftover chicken, mushrooms, olives, and avocado. I placed it under the broiler for a few minutes, then ate the “pizza” hot with a fork.
Like I said, it was pretty good. I’m honestly not sure I would make it again (maybe if I had 1/2 of a cauliflower randomly sitting in my fridge like I had today), but I’m still glad I tried it.
One of my neighbors asked me about my wristband on my walk with Maddie this morning.
Yes, it’s been three days since my half ironman and I still can’t bring myself to take the wristband off. I like having it there, sort of like a reminder of what I can accomplish. I know it won’t stay there forever, but I’m not quite ready to take it off anytime soon.
I’m the same way with d-tags for races. I’ll usually leave them on my shoes as a little piece of motivation until I absolutely need to take them off . Plus, I know that once I take the d-tags/ wristband off that the race is really over. Whomp. Whomp.
Do you keep race memorabilia? How long do you usually wait before removing wristbands or d-tags?
I keep race bibs too. I have three race books filled with race bibs from every race I’ve done since 2009. I treasure them.
