Happy Monday everyone! I’m sure everyone is ready for a wonderful new week. I know I am! It always helps that I have a week full of delicious foods already planned out to look forward to.
Last Week’s Results
Last week we managed to stick to the menu every single day. It was a small miracle! And surprisingly, the Ultimate Keto Buns I made on Sunday held up. They were just as tasty on Friday for our tuna salad sandwiches as they were on our Sunday cheeseburgers.
When I made the Deconstructed Pizza Casserole, I used some sliced baby portabella mushrooms to one half (for Mamacita and me). Yum! I sauteed them as instructed in the recipe and they definitely added to the flavour. The mister isn’t fond of mushrooms, so I made sure his portion didn’t have any in it. However, the next time we make it, I think I’m going to add in another package of sausage. There just never seems to be enough to go around, especially since we don’t have sides with most meals.
Any Progress Last Week?
I know, I didn’t write a progress post this week. We had a rather busy weekend, and honestly, the only thing to report was a minor gain in weight for both of us. I’m just back to where I was the week before. I’m not discouraged! We are going to have our ups and downs. As long as the overall trend continues downward, then I will remain a happy camper.
So what’s for dinner this week?
A few of our favourites are hitting my menu this week, and we decided to break out the slow-cooker for two of them. One of the benefits of the weather getting cooler is the influx of filling, hot dishes to make in the slow cooker, like roasts, soups, stews and chili. Over the next few days I’ll be researching some new recipes to review that will hopefully make even picky eaters happy.
