  • Great ideas Goldie. I could use cornbread for the stuffing - better than wheat I'm thinking. How much garlic do you use with the cauliflower? I love garlic. No one in the family are big gravy fans so the mash has to stand up to taste good alone.

    • Kathi, check out this thread for ---> Primal Stuffing --I saw a recipe for sausage/apple stuffing that looked promising!

      For one head of cauliflower, I used two (fresh minced) cloves of garlic. I made sure to drain the cauliflower well before I mashed it, and I added a little almond milk and plenty of butter to get the right consistency. Hubby agreed that mashed cauli is LOTS better than potato mash!

      • Thread is great. Will get cauliflower and try mash, sounds yummy.

        So for trip next week, I got a mini crock pot. Room comes with microwave and refrigerator. I can do chicken in the crock pot and serve plain with a sweet potato or on a salad or shredded with eggs. I will not have to count on eating out, which is great!

        • Slept great. No headache this morning. have got to write the 1-page review today, as its due by midnight. I'm such a procrastinator. I need to figure out what I'm going to pack clothes wise tomorrow. I've got a list of school and eating stuff going already. Hair appointment this afternoon to cover the grey. Set out grass fed NY steaks for dinner. Got to use up the kale and I've got some fingerling potatoes for the boys and a sweet potato for me. So I get to be lazy for another hour, then I need to get moving.

          Did laundry......

          Made GYN appointment.

                • Neiborhood night out was fun. Met many new people. There was a lot of food and I managed to avoid it all! I took deviled eggs and they were a hit. It got cool (down to 69) and breezy. I had the rest of my sweet potato before I went. Mostly packed - need to pack my clothes (they are set out) in the morning.

                  • Sitting in Phoenix waiting for my connection to SLC. Glad I ate a big egg and bacon breakfast. Have about an hour before I leave. Crossing all kind of time zones today!

                    • In Provo. Checked into hotel, groceries bought, chicken started in mini crock pot, dinner of steak, beet salad, cauliflower. Case studies graded for my students.

                      Salad fixings prepped. Tomorrow I need to put it all together with chicken and I will get some hard boiled eggs from breakfast spread. I got some chicken-apple sausages and Greek yogurt too, so I should be good for all meals, including some dinners!

                      • I was up about 3 hours last night. Hotel, not my bed were both factors, I'm sure! Salad with crock pot chicken was great for lunch. A long 8 hours of stats today and another 8 tomorrow. I'm getting ready to heat up some chicken/apple sausage for dinner.

                        • It always atakes me a night or two to adjust to sleeping well in a hotel. Hilton properties always have nice mattresses IMO and I seem to sleep better there than anywhere else. I always crank up the AC so I can use the big comforter they always have and I get rid of all but two of the 19 pillows they put on nowadays.

                          • I like eating pureed pumpkin or acorn squash with garlic, apple, and butter as a nice mashed potato substitute.

                            You can thicken gravy with arrowroot or tapioca flour. Yes, it's starch, for sure, but it's not grains at least.

                              I stay at Marriott hotels (I've traveled so much I'm platinum! ) yup,I crank up the AC too. I was up at 4 this morning, read a bit and then showered and got ready for the day. Some meditation time, organization time, cottage cheese and peaches for breakfast. Lunch crock pot chicken, tomatoes, green olives. Lots of water. I'm thinking about the rest of the chicken sausage and a salad for dinner.

                                Thanks, Judg. Boy you've been busy reading the journals! I like acorn squash, but the boys don't. May just make smashed potatoes and avoid them.
