Craaaazy Day

Today was soooo long. I had several admissions and a recertification which take about 1-2 hours each, then a crazy run around with doctors. Bleh. I am exhausted. Friday is going to be another long day...I cannot WAIT for the weekend!!!

Anyway since today is a crazy one, I am going to do another delicious crock pot recipe! YUM!

Lovin' the cool down. Last night we had explosive thunderstorms the likes of which I have never seen. I'm talking lightning every second, thunderboomers that were shaking my house and the sky sounding like it was cracking and falling down. WOW. It woke me up out of a dead sleep and I watched a bit of its beauty...at 2am.

How am I still going? I don't know.

Anyway, ENJOY! Today's recipe!

  1. This recipe looks really good. On someone's blog a WHILE back and of course I can't give proper credit because I don't remember...... Anyhow, they posted a recipe for turkey stroganoff but they used rough chopped - mashed-ish cauliflower vs. noodles! I made the recipe that was posted (it was freakin' awesome!) and the cauli had just the right texture and lended some peppery flavor so could probably use less of other flavors with the sodium content. Give it a whirl with your next crock pot recipe, I think you'll like it! Just cook the rough chopped cauli and plate it up with the sauce as though it were rice - it's lovely! :)
