Chili and Cauliflower

Thank you for the support! I have been enjoying your comments and emails! You, my readers are so kind!!! Thank you for your support! :)

Like I said yesterday, hubby was out of town this past weekend and out the door was my diet. I ate grains and I had dairy and my elbows broke out and my body ached and I got sick. It is hard cutting out such BIG ingredients. Pasta dinners are quick and easy and you can make them colorful with vegetables. Casseroles are delicious and easy, too! I am still learning and I am still making mistakes. 


Back on track! 
 Lunch - tuna, celery and avocado, olive oil and pepper on top of lettuce

I am learning to have my meals planned out for the week and on the calendar. I am learning to stick with my plan. I like just looking in my fridge and creating. My fridge is stocked, again and I am ready to go!

  1. What a neat idea! I've not ever thought to sub cauliflower for the beans in my chili! I will have to give this a go next time I whip up a pot. Thank you for sharing at Monday Mania! :)

  2. I've never seen someone put cauliflower in chili, but it looks like a really good idea! I always love to find ways to add extra veggies to things...

  3. I have never thought about putting cali with chili- interesting, I'll give it a try! This recipe is perfect for my Beat the Winter Blues party- come link up!

  4. Well, I love soup and chile of all kinds and yours looks great. I wish I could stick with my menu planning! I am terrible at wanting what I have planned...ha. I found you on Monday Mania.
    I have a blog link-up and I would love it if you would share your recipe. Here is the link, if you are interested:

  5. I was thinking about making chili tonight and thought hmmm wonder how cauliflower would work in chili. And then I found your blog/recipe! I'm excited to try it out. I started a 30 day challenge (I'm now more than 80 days in because I stuck with it) to use leftovers, give in to impulse items less, and save money on groceries.

  6. Hi there! Nice stuff, do keep me posted when you post again something like this!
