WIAW: disclaimer, busyness is 2015 for me so far, but i’m trying to dedicate more time for things I love and enjoy thus WIAW enters….so by gosh I’m going to try my hardest to stick around every week ya’ll!
Check out Jenn’s site to see what everyone else is up to as well!
There is simply no other way to put it, but I am falling more in love with my husband every single day. I can’t help but to shamelessly exclaim that my husband and I are loving this time in our lives and I am absolutely enjoying every moment, laugh, smile, and word we get to exchange!
So when I think about WIAW and my posts upcoming I want to reflect the joy, exuberance, and encouragement to other newlyweds or people in general out there. I’ve been thinking in which direction to take this blog and as I think ahead to my journey this year that I forsee coming up. I am overjoyed by the events we already have in the books and those unplanned ventures to come. I want to relay those events here to you all, to help you see what WE are learning throughout it all. Of course to laugh and feel joy with us along the way as well!
So without further ado, I bring to you a WIAW…
What does a NEWLYWED couple really eat…well hang tight you’re about to find out.
My friend celebrated her son’s third birthday and she celebrated well, with authentic Mexican food homemade tortillas and fajita meat as well as some rolled up dough with mashed potatoes in it, wow. Not to mention the homemade guacamole and salsa that I didn’t get photos of because the party was bouncing’ and my taste buds were partying’ just as hard. WHOOOO…
Next up we have our morning beauty of protein waffles, err day if we could of course we eat these treats. So good and they really don’t take me any time at all, whilst eating them we enjoy conversation and some days a little Bible reading.
My husband has recently gotten into making chemex coffee and it is so good! We love our coffee over here and it is keeping up fueling us on a daily basis…I must admit that while making good coffee the chemex does appeal to the eye as well…very fancy.
So it is almost functioning as a pour over if anyone has ever heard of that except well fancier. =)
Date’s have also included trips to coffee bars and my traditional order of a sugar free skinny vanilla latte, there is a place in town that serves up a AWESOME one!
I myself have been experimenting with deer meat as my parents have unloaded over 15 pounds of it on us, yahoo, I just really love how it picks up any flavor so I haven’t been to crazy with my experimentation of it just loving the simple taste of a few ingredients added…and it’s really good with spinach!
Theres more to our story though, as we lately have been having cooking date nights, idk why the cold weather brings it out in us but I have to admit I really love it. Cooking with my husband as I have said in previous posts is just so much fun. Not to mention he’s very hott to watch in the kitchen. 😉
Enter the making of cauliflower pizza, this is where you all come in if anyone has a excellent and EASY cauliflower crust recipe please impart your wisdom upon us, we simply do this about once a year because the crust is just something that takes us a while to do.
Ingredients for the pizza are very important to me, I like fresh ingredients and so we went with all fresh items except for one!:
Fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh parmesan and skim shredded blend of cheeses, green peppers, onion blend (this was the only frozen item I used and I sautéed them before placing them on the pizzas), tomatoes, and mushrooms. Of course cauliflower but that is what we used to make the crust with…
Prep work of the ingredients was relatively easy compared to these bad boys…
That photo was taken only after I food precessed the cauliflower and laid it out on a paper towel smashing it between two dry sheets to bring out as much moisture as possible then mixing it with egg whites spices and more cheese (can’t get too much cheese for pizza right?)
Despite the struggle, it’s real folks, we managed two nice crusts of which to have a variety for our pizza selection, so that was fun…
Making them both a little different was a fun way to switch it up and try different flavors while still using all the ingredients…
Then of course we had to soup it up.
I then baked em’ up not for very long at all and ta da….
So we definitely aren’t professionals but we can make some pretty good pizzas, we followed them up with home made ice cream from our Cuisinart ice cream maker vanilla with xylitol instead of sugar of course (better for your teeth!)
It was a tasty meal and so much fun to make together, being married to your best friend helps to make for some pretty great times making just about anything a fun adventure…even cauliflower pizza.
Enjoy the photos guys and let me know if YOU have ever made a cauliflower pizza crust and if you have suggestions for easier making for our future!
