And the Hubby of the Year Is…..

Mine.  Hands down.  At least to me.

I am incredibly blessed to have the single most patient, understanding, and supportive husband in the whole world.  He’s always there for me, supporting without pushing, encouraging without making a big deal out of everything, and just generally being ok with who I am, no matter what.

That makes this whole Weight Watchers journey soooo much easier.  He happily eats whatever I serve.  He always has, but he never complains that there’s something missing.  He doesn’t bemoan the lack of gravy, doesn’t whine about the low-fat cheese, doesn’t ever say “let’s just cheat and go to DQ”.  He does have some pounds he wants to drop, but he could easily make me feel like this process is somehow depriving him.  And he doesn’t.  EVER.

He also loves my Smashed Cauliflower.  Now he’s a real meat-and-potatoes type of guy.  He loves steak and prime rib and thinks Emeril’s right and “Pork Fat Rules”.  He’ll eat potatoes baked, mashed, scalloped, au gratin, steamed, grilled, roasted and fried.  He’ll eat instant potatoes with that Kraft Cheese powder that’s a shade of orange just short of radioactive.  And yet, Smashed Cauliflower has risen to the top of his Potato-list, even though he knows there’s not a single iota of potato in it.

Smashed Cauliflower, adapted from the South Beach Diet:

Try this in place of mashed potatoes.  Heck, try it in place of any kind of potatoes.  It’s positively yummy.  Just ask my hubby…..he loves this stuff.  He’s also lost 16 pounds.  Yay Rick!!!

Weekly loss:  0.8 lbs   Total loss:  8.4 lbs     Yay me too!
