Mimi’s Monday Menu

Since the new year is starting on a Monday, I’m excited to post a brand new dinner menu for the week! But first…


Happy New Year! I feel like 2017 just flew right by. It’s hard to believe that 2018 is already here.

Last Week’s Results

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is so odd. It doesn’t feel like a real week at all. It’s some kind of strange limbo in the middle of two holidays. We had a great time on Christmas day, using it as a second cheat day, and not paying any mind to our carb count. Tuesday, we hit Dickies, and then on Wednesday, we deviated from our plan and ended up going out. That’s what happens when you go in early and work a 10-hour day.

Thursday we were back on track and had dinner at home, but when they called and said we could come get our computer on Friday, we decided to grab Cane’s on the way home. So it was a bad week for the waistline, overall.


However, there were moments of success! For instance, I had an appointment with a nurse to check my blood pressure, and the medication is definitely helping! I was back in the normal range. Now, I just have to keep working to get off the medication altogether.

I started out making a new recipe on Thursday, but I ended up changing it so much that I decided to write my own recipe. So keep an eye out for that this week!

Anything new?

Tonight, the mister and I are expanding the recipes we have tried by giving this Low-carb Pizza Burger a shot. Last night, we tried out fathead pizza dough for the first time and we were both impressed, so hopefully, these turn out good. I’ll be doing a review of the dough in a coming post as well. We’ve been trying a lot of new things lately and I’ve been taking a lot of pictures. I’m looking forward to giving my thoughts on the recipes we’ve been trying out.

What’s on the menu this week?

As I mentioned, we are trying out Low-carb pizza burgers tonight, but the rest of the week is going to be comfort food. When I do cook, I’ll be utilizing the crockpot instead of the oven or stove, mostly because of the time-saving aspect.

We’re definitely having jambalaya this week, but we’re going to mix it up by adding a bit of cauliflower “rice”. I’ll keep you posted on how that turns out.

We’re back to our usual three days of eating dinner out rather than four or more. I’m looking forward to cleaning up our diet again!

On the menu for exercise, we’re continuing the beginner’s program through HasFit.com.

Now, without further ado, here is the dinner menu for this week.

Mimi’s Monday Menu:

Monday: Low Carb Pizza Burgers

Tuesday: Dickies (Where else?)

Wednesday: Jambalaya

Thursday: Grillin’ Wings and Things

Friday: Chicken in Alfredo Sauce

Saturday: Cheat Day!

Sunday: Chili Dogs
