Today was all about experimentation.
Using healthier ingredients, I decided to make something new for dinner and something old.
The new was cauliflower rice.
While I think it’s a creative way to have a “rice”, I completely overused the coconut oil and the entire dish tasted of little else. Even my husband, who loves coconut, thought it was too much.
The old was something called panelli.
They’re a Sicilian dish I grew up eating – fried garbanzo bean dough – and absolutely delicious. Well…. when made right. Which I failed to do this evening. I’m still experimenting with recipes passed down and also from a cookbook and though they didn’t come out that bad, they weren’t anywhere like my mother’s and grandmother’s.
And then, I accidentally overcooked my shrimp.
It was not my night in the kitchen.
But you know what, that’s okay.
Experimenting is part of the equation when making changes and not everything is going to be like hitting a ball out of the park.
And tomorrow is another day.
Make healthy a habit. #makehealthyahabit
