When Your Human Fannie Pack Betrays You + Roasted Shaved Brussels Sprouts
Rule #99: Sometimes you’ve just gotta channel Miss Jan and get ‘er done.
I don’t know that I can claim that I’m a “Bathroom Selfie” type of gal. I’m more of the “Look Ma! I showered for the first time in 2 weeks, AND I’m wearing pants that zip” kinda selfie gal. I decided to document this moment, well, really the moment about 30 seconds before, because it was a monumental one for me. And for Brooke.

Rule #113: Sometimes we all need a little break to drink wine out of a Pringles can and drive around the Walmart parking lot in a motorized cart.
Rule #74: Bake it twice, and it’ll be nice.
Continuing with the low carb theme around these here parts, I decided to try some Twice Baked Cauliflower to change it up a bit. I’m not lying when I say that I genuinely don’t miss the potato in this one. I loooooove me some taters, too. Don’t get me wrong. The Spud and I go way back. But, it sure is nice to have a low carb option that doesn’t leave me missing my ole buddy. It’s cheesy, creamy, bacon-y, and can be ready in a snap (or even made ahead)!
Rule #123: A few ingredients can go a long way.
Cauliflower rice is becoming a serious staple at our house. It’s fast and easy to cook, it’s low-carb, and it takes on the flavor of whatever you throw its way. It’s the perfect little make-it-your-own side dish. We love our Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice with all kinds of our favorite Mexican dishes!
Rule #275: Tahiti can sometimes look like the inside of a bar.
I actually showered a few times in the past couple of weeks. You’re welcome, John Q. Public. It’s amazing what a little conditioner, 10 lbs. of makeup, and some accessories can do for a girl.
I also got to ‘sneak’ away for a margarita. By myself. At a bar.
