There are a few things that I have strong beliefs in –

  1. Football is stupid.
  2. Dogs are way better than humans.
  3. You should be eating vegetables with every single meal.

There are I said it. Sure, most of these beliefs won’t be well
liked by most people, but they should be. BECAUSE THEY ARE FACTS.
Facts by Juli. But before people get all upset about the football
comment, let’s just quickly get on to the belief 3 –
vegetables. Vegetables are the best. And we should be eating them
all the time. They are demonized in the media from an early age
(i.e. – Arthur not wanting to eat boiled brussels
sprouts…because WHO BOILS BRUSSELS SPROUTS?!), but we should
really change that. Because vegetable are f*cking bomb. Especially
when they are crispy, topped with a sauce, and full of flavor. And
this cauliflower is exactly that. This cauliflower is a bomb ass
b*tch. Sure, it may smell like farts when you’re cutting it, but
luckily it doesn’t taste like it.

What I love about cauliflower is that it will take on any flavor
you throw at it. And I also love that it’s somehow become
tortillas, rice, tater tots, biscuits, and pizza. Favorite quote
maybe ever – “If cauliflower can somehow become pizza, you my
friend can be anything.” So you know what I need from you today?
I need you to make this cauliflower side dish and afterwards, I
need you to become whoever you want to be. That’s all I ask of
you today. It’s a small request, ok? Make cauliflower, eat
veggies at every meal, stop watching football, get a dog, and be
the best version of yourself. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? Can you tell
that I didn’t sleep much last night? I’m feeling like I can
conquer the world…then will crash by 10am.

Since I’ve pushed cauliflower down your throat like Michael
forced Kevin to eat broccoli for his New Years resolution, let’s
take a step back. Give you a breather. Let you relax for a moment.
Instead, let me only slightly complain for a moment…OUR BATHROOM
RENOVATION STILL ISN’T DONE. This bathroom start April 1st which
means it will most likely be a 3 month job. When it was suppose to
be a month and a half. It’s insanity. And it all came down to a
fabricator who took our money then wouldn’t take our phone calls.
At one point, my husband was calling his 10x a day. He hit ignore
every time. So finally we got fed up and I sent him a super angry
email letting him know that I would be calling the police and
taking him to small claims court. He placed a check in my mailbox
the next day. And to make sure it cleared, I cashed it.
Miraculously, we got our money back!!! But that meant we had to
find a new fabricator, get our vanity measured and get on their
schedule, which added more time.

Moral of the story – when you’re doing a renovation, always
double or triple the timeframe that they give you. Contractors
don’t like to overestimate probably because they are nervous you
won’t work with them given the lengthy timeframe. So overestimate
since they won’t. And trust no one. Ever.

However, there is an end is sight, which is lovely. Once our
bathroom is done, I may just sleep in there for a couple weeks so I
can fully enjoy the time that was spent creating it. The only thing
that sucks now is I want to redo the other bathrooms, which is now
impossible knowing what renovations are actually like. This isn’t
some Chip & Joanna sh*t. How their marriage lasts with
thousands of children and a renovation business makes absolutely no
sense to me. Are they robots? Maybe lizard people? Probably just
good people, huh? Too bad they don’t show the fights. I would
watch that.

Ok, I have cauliflower to eat and another veggie dish to create
for you guys, so I must go. Don’t forget – EAT YOUR VEGGIES

And stop watching football.
