Real Life, Real Menu~ 4/13/20

How is everyone holding up these days?  As we go through life right now, I am trying to  live in gratitude. It is possible to live with joy and grief at the same time, and it is important to recognize both. Something that I have found in life is recognizing and embracing both joy and grief.  Click here if you want to see my post about how we are dealing with stressful times.

This past week I did some extra baking & thought I would share with you!

These are super, super easy & here is what you need~


  • Chicken Thighs
  • 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Taco seasoning packet (or click here for a homemade version)
  • 1 Ranch seasoning packet (or use a homemade version-1T dried parsley, 1tsp garlic powder, 1tsp onion powder, 1tsp dried onion flakes, 3/4tsp dill, 1/2tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt)

Cauliflower Crust Pizza & Salad

  • Riced Cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp basil
  • spaghetti sauce
  • hamburger
  • cheese

Cook the riced cauliflower according to package

Drain the cauliflower rice really well. The more water you can get out, the crispier the crust will be!

Add in the egg

Put on a cookie sheet on aluminum foil & flatten it out

Cover with an egg wash and then seasonings

Bake for 16 min at 450 , then flipped and baked for another 5 min

Put desired sauce & toppings on the top and bake for another 8 min or so
