I love fancy words. Instead of saying "I am having a great day" I would rather say "I am having a marvelous (stupendous or extraordinary) day." If any of you have little girls, you are probably familiar with the Fancy Nancy series, where a little red head girl loves to use fancy words, and of course she especially feels fancy when she is speaking in french. Such a great way for children to expand their vocabulary!

First ingredient...Cauliflower. One of my favorite vegetables. I love how versatile it is! It is easy to puree or blend into other foods, like mashed potatoes. Or it can be the main attraction like Cauliflower soup.
I had the most overwhelming day this past week. I'm a planner by nature. I have a calendar that hangs up in the kitchen, and everything from doctor appointments to birthday parties and BBQ with friends are written down. So, when things come up that are unexpected and last minute, I can get a little overwhelmed because...they weren't on the calendar! That might be a good thing for me to work on...going with the flow and not freaking out when things don't go exactly as planned.
