purple things

I ate mashed cauliflower last night. <<Words I never thought I would say. Ever.
Correction: I ate mashed purple cauliflower last night, and I didn't hate it. I'd even go as far as to say I kinda liked it. A lot. Toeing the line of maybe loved it. 

That's the funny things about marriage, isn't it? (just go with me here...) You do all sorts of things you never thought you would do. All because you have this other person around shoving things in your face saying, Come on! Try it! Try it. I'm serious. Try it. I'm not kissing again you until you try it. Nope. How do you know you won't like it? Oh, you say you've had it before? When? Name the exact place. You can't because you've never had it. Eeeeeemmmmiiiiilllllyyyyy. 

^^word for word what goes down in our household on a daily basis. Especially with food. Especially with green food. I have this thing about green foods and it's all green beans' fault because gross.

As I sat there last night. eating this bright purple mash, I couldn't help but think of all the things I have tried (eating and doing) just to appease this person with whom I vowed to spend forever (side note: my vows said nothing about trying weird new things. I'm just nice like that).

  • Dragonfruit (ew)
  • Lychee (ew)
  • Brussel Sprouts (okay then no thanks)
  • Call Of Duty (Dear God, why?)
  • Any and all card games (aside from Go Fish)
  • Mango (Why are you not feeding me chocolate?)
  • Long bike rides (bye bye, crotch and legs)
  • Zoodles (um, yum! Game changer)
  • Avocado (give me all the avocados you have)
  • Scallops (also give me all the scallops you have)
  • Soda water (this and wine are the only two things I really ever drink. #yesplz)
  • Calling offices to make appointments (No, Emily. I am not calling for you) (ugh)
  • Watching Dexter and Lost (two shows that made me love them and then destroyed me with their horrible endings) (Still not over it) (And never will be)
  • Country music (I still kind of hate myself for knowing all the words for all the songs now)
  • Pretty much anything good in life (<<Freddie's words when I asked for his blog input)
He's still working on lamb, golf, camping, coffee, and more bike riding (no, not really, only if it's glamping, double no, and ouch). 

I've successfully gotten Freddie to try...watching dance performances. Doing Pilates. And...that's probably about it. 

Wait! One time he listened to Justin Bieber's Baby with me. Go team!

Sigh. Time to go eat roasted sweet potatoes with a fried egg on top for breakfast and actually enjoy it all because of Freddie.

I like cauliflower mash! I was so skeptical about it too though. A big one for me is I was always AWFUL and running and was like, "Nope, I'll never run ever unless a murderer is chasing me (and I'll die because I suck at running)" and Michael convinced me we should start running this year. I actually like it now!

Umm sorry, but cauliflower mash? ewwww. Isn't it crazy the things marriage does to us? Now I want to make a list like this haha!

This looks like the stuff I feed baby Crew!! Haha!

I don't like calling and making appointments either! Ross and I are on Episode Two of Dexter right now...interested to see what I think. And you go with the mashed cauliflower...I tried it with cream colored cauli and my brain saw mashed potatoes but tasted cauliflower and I couldn't do it.

Doesn't look appetizing, but we tried it too with regular cauliflower. So good!

I have definitely tried a lot of new foods because of Jared haha. I am generally not very adventurous in that department. I'm confused by the mashed cauli though- is it supposed to be like mashed potatoes?
