Some weeks go off without a hitch. Some weeks go off the rails completely. As far as my Monday menu, last week was somewhere in between. And that’s okay! There will be days and weeks when you’re not going to be able to stick to your schedule of meals. It’s important to know when it’s okay to let it go and allow yourself some wiggle room.
Last Week’s Results
I had high hopes for last week’s menu, and it started off well. The mister and I had plans to try a new recipe on Wednesday, and a few favorites throughout the week. Unfortunately, life (and my clumsiness) had other thoughts on that. On Wednesday morning, I got the cauliflower and the ground beef ready for the casserole that I planned to put together when I got home that evening, but it ended up sitting in the fridge.
After taking that tumble on Wednesday morning, there was no way I was going to stand in the kitchen and make food. So we decided to switch our meals from Wednesday and Thursday, and we went out. However, on Thursday I was not feeling anymore like cooking. So we went out again. Friday, thankfully, we got back on track.
Unfortunately, the beef and cauliflower didn’t fare very well in the fridge, and I really didn’t feel like trying to salvage it, so we made the soft taco bake that was on the menu for Friday. I’m okay with that decision. It was delicious.
That doesn’t mean there won’t be any recipe reviews this week! On the contrary, I am trying out a new recipe tonight, and I’ll be documenting it for review tomorrow. The bacon cheeseburger cauliflower casserole will be reviewed either later in the week, or next week, since it is back on the menu this week for Wednesday.
The mister has strictly forbidden me from falling over anything else, so we shouldn’t have to worry about that.
Speaking of new, I found a new work out program that we started to try last week. We only got two workouts in before I was forced into rest mode, but we restarted last night, and I’m looking forward to giving it a shot. If you’re interested, all of the workouts can be found on HasFit.com. Best of all…they are all FREE. Yes, free. All of them. I’ll be reviewing the Beginner’s workout once we try a few more of them.
What’s on the menu this week?
As I mentioned, I’ll be making two new recipes this week. The Bacon Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole will be on Wednesday. Tonight, I’m trying out a new keto buffalo chicken tender recipe that the mister found for us. I love it when he picks out a new recipe. I’m always worried that when I try a new one, it’s going to be something he hates. So when he has input into my experiments, it alleviates some of that pressure for me.
We also have our favorite places and some jambalaya for the end of the week. It will be nice to have some hot meals, especially since this week is supposed to be so chilly.
Without further ado, here is the menu for this week.
Mimi’s Monday Menu:
Tuesday: Dickies (My stamp card is almost full!)
Wednesday: Bacon Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole
Friday: Low-Carb Slow-Cooker Jambalaya
Saturday: Cheat Day!
Sunday: Nathan’s Hot Dogs with Chili
