8/14-8/20

This week has been mostly just ‘alright’; there were a couple of successes, and a couple of flops.

Of note, the bacon cheeseburger casserole was something of a flop; it was like … meat loaf? But mushy and bland and watery. I messed up by forgetting to add almond flour/psyllium husk, that might have made a difference, but overall I just wasn’t very impressed with it. Same thing with the cauliflower potato salad. I guess I just don’t like potato salad well enough to crave it.

The jalapeno popper chicken, while a good concept, didn’t really work for me either.

With that being said, the caramel frosted cheesecake bites were to DIE for, the bacon and zucchini eggs in a nest were awesome and we re-made them a few times throughout the week for breakfasts, and making Wings at home was FANTASTIC!

I misplaced my cell phone, so no crappy cell phone pictures this week, but here’s next week’s plan. We’re going to do a few snack-foods for eating throughout the week, to shove in the fridge and eat as we’re hungry.
