Cauliflower Rice

I am all about the shredded cauliflower.  

1. Grate a head of cauliflower in a Cuisinart with the shredder disc.
2. Put olive oil in a pan + some minced garlic + green onions.
3. Add grated cauliflower and stir until lightly browned.
4. Add seasonings to taste (I add some mixed herbs plus 2 Tbs. butter)

For more flavor try the recipe from the picture.

Here is a snapshot of what moving in looked like yesterday.  
The moving truck should be arriving anytime now!

I am seriously thinking of buying a trampoline for our backyard.  I was researching different brands online and came across this picture.  This almost seems cruel to those poor chickies and I hope the kids are very small in that family!

Silly Family

E + D + N

Ellen, David, and Nick are moving to Seattle next week!  Grandparents here we come.  Oh, the free date nights.  Oh, how my kids will love having family nearby.  Oh, how we will love having family nearby.

We took the kids to the empty rental tonight to check on a few things.  The kids are so excited they can hardly wait for five more days to pass:

LFL Therapy

Seattle Mist here we come.
I just bought our first set of tickets to watch Seattle's own Legends Football League team.
There are only three home games in the season and I wanted to buy tickets to all three, but I decided I should watch a game before buying them out.
I can't wait until May.

P.S. The mourning around here is unbearable.  My neighbor and I talked with heads hung low and lots of moments of silence.  The picture of Wilson shaking airport staff's hands with his tail between his legs was heart wrenching.  I am still flying those Seahawks flags with pride and I can't believe I am saying "we'll get them next year" to anyone who will listen.

A Story

It was like I was reading a book.  The beginning and middle a usual journey of ups and downs.  Then, the author ends it.  A bad ending.  One that leaves you slamming the book down, shaking your head, and saying, "It shouldn't have ended that way."  Kind of like Little Women or The Great Gatsby.

They should have given it to Lynch.

I will never get to see how that would have played out and my brain just can't let that one go.

Defeat.  I will be crabby now.
