Bang Bang Cauliflower
Yesterday I let the ugly worry monster rear his head and disrupt what should have been a joyful and peaceful Sunday. I had a dentist appointment today. Little Man had to come to the dentist with me so I began to worry that he wouldn’t be happy sitting in his stroller that long and would throw a fit. I was overdue for my dental check up and only really floss after I’ve eaten some sweet corn so I envisioned receiving a stern reprimand. And I had recently noticed some dark areas on one of my teeth so I was sure I had an enormous cavern of decay from eating too much of this.
I will admit that I let all of these thoughts occupy way too much real estate in my head yesterday and this morning. When will I learn. Not one of the scenarios I had played out in my head came to fruition. Little Man melted the hearts of everyone in the office. He batted his baby blues and flashed his toothy grin and had them all eating out of his hand. Ok, he was really the only one eating (Cheerios are a great distraction tool).
I was reprimanded only slightly about my prolonged absence and the dark spot on my tooth? Merely a stain (note, brush better after drinking tea.)
Lesson learned for today? Don’t waste your time worrying!!!
If you really want something to do, make this cauliflower. The first time I made this I used Michelle’s recipe. It was fantastic but I wasn’t crazy about the use of eggs or the frying. So I adjusted the recipe a bit by eliminating the egg and baking instead of frying. It is still mind blowingly awesome. This is a great way to sneak in some extra veggies to your unsuspecting family.
Don’t forget to floss!
