Things That Make Me Say Yeay + Skinny Pumpkin "Risotto" Recipe

Friday, November 16, 2012


This beautiful bracelet c/o  Danique Jewelry with both of my boys initials engraved.  I absolutely love it. I think every Mom/lover needs one.  The one I have can be found here.  The sweet shop owner is giving all Delighted Momma readers a discount towards anything you would like.  You can use the code delightedmomma15 to receive 15% off.

Instead of baking holidays treats I can not eat, my thoughtful friend made me homemade hummus with carrots and included the carb count on a little sticky note. So sweet.


My happy carefree two year old jolting off to the park.  This picture makes my heart happy.


A fridge full of insulin.  I am so thankful that insulin even exists. It's crazy to think that I simply could not survive without it.

Skinny pumpkin "risotto"  that I made with cauliflower rice.  I used the shredder blade on my food processor and pulsed the cauliflower until it resembled rice.  I cooked the "rice" in a large saucepan with coconut oil for about 7 minutes and slowly added the sauce.  For the sauce I used a can of organic pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk, cinnamon, nutmeg salt & pepper.  It was amazing.

Have a wonderful weekend! We are getting Ronin baptized and getting all of our Christmas decorations out.  Time to get festive!

The pic of your son running so too adorable. Also love your bracelet...what a talented artist! How long will the delightedmomma15 promotion be going on? I'm thinking Christmas gifts!

My bracelet came yesterday! I had to look at it before handing it over to Jon to wrap... :)

Not sure if you are into lattes at all, but I noticed the So Delicious brand had pumpkin spice coconut milk at Whole Foods for the holidays. I bought some in that and the mint chocolate they have and have added both to my coffee (mostly milk, little coffee) and it's almost like I have my beloved lattes back. The pumpkin risotto reminded me of that since I'm in the mindset of all things pumpkin right now ;)

Hi L!

Just wanted to thank you for the rec about the jewelry...i ordered a necklace for myself and I also ordered the bracelet for a mom in a domestic abuse shelter that I am sponsoring for the holiday. I really think she will like it and it will hopefully be a reminder to be strong for her 2 kids. i was searching for something special for her in addition to her "wish list" items that she asked for, and this was perfect. thank you so much!

Lindsay, thanks so much for the bracelet post. I just ordered a bracelet for myself (I rarely do anything for myself) with the initials of me & my husband. Can't wait to get it and put it on.
