It is Monday once again! You know what that means? It’s time for another edition of Mimi’s Monday Menu! I have a lot of deliciousness on the menu this week, but first, we need to talk results from last week.
Last Week’s Results
We got a little off track last week, but only on Friday. Unfortunately, I decided it would be a good idea to freeze the chicken thighs since we weren’t using them until Friday. It didn’t seem like such a good idea on Friday morning when I needed to cut them up. Given that I had ten minutes to get everything together, we decided we would do Jambalaya this week instead. So we hit Chick-Fil-A for supper on Friday night.
We each still saw a pound lost on Friday night, so that was a big plus. We try to eat light on Friday night just so we don’t have anything too heavy that skews our results on Saturday morning. Chick-Fil-A wasn’t exactly the best choice for that. Hopefully, if we stick to the plan this week, we will see even better results.
Now, I have to tell you, I was skeptical about the skillet pizza and the taco bake on our menu last week. The taco thing looked good, but pizza with no crust? I had my doubts. They were unfounded. Both of the new meals last week came from Cooking Keto with Kristie on YouTube. The skillet pizza was recommended to us by a friend who is on the keto plan, and man did he know what he was talking about. I followed the instructions, but added a spoonful of pizza sauce, and used colby-jack as the base. YUM. It was so flipping good. That’s going to be a new staple, I’m sure.
But let’s talk about the Taco Skillet Bake. You all don’t even know. It’s so good that when I sheepishly asked the mister, “Can I make it again this week?” He gave me an enthusiastic yes. I’m not sad to say that this dish has probably replaced our Old El Paso soft taco bake. I thought I would miss it not having tortillas in it…I didn’t. Not at all.
We are making one new recipe this week. We’re going to have some breakfast for dinner one night. And I’m going to try my hand at some low-carb pancakes. Because we are not sure how they will turn out, we’ve got back-up in the form of bacon and eggs, which everyone loves.
What’s on the Monday Menu this week?
So we’ve got some breakfast for dinner, some Tex-Mex taco skillet bake, some bar-be-que, some Cajun-inspired jambalaya, and instead of going out on Thursday, we’re adding in a fourth stay-at-home meal. What?! Four night at home? Have we lost our minds? Nah, we just saw some Italian meat rolls at Sam’s club that we really wanted to try out for a meal. We’re all over the place this week as far as the origins of our meals! At least we won’t be bored this week.
