On Saturday we attended a surprise 50th birthday party for a family friend and were able to catch up with some old friends we don't get to see very often. We had a good meal and then enjoyed eating cake, which my sister-in-law had decorated so nicely (she is very talented at cake decorating and party planning!)
Then Sunday we went to Sunday School and attended church. After church, we had lunch and an afternoon of fellowship with some friends, and we played Settlers of Catan (my first time playing it). We then came home for the evening and had our friends/family over for a few rounds of Rook (card game) and munchies.
It was such an awesome weekend! I am SO excited for more weekends like these now that the nasty winter/roads are hopefully finished.
*As I finish writing this up Tuesday morning, it is currently snowing. sigh.*
Here's our menu plan for this week. I am going to attempt to keep my S & E meals on separate days. I will be eating lots of leftovers/similar meals, though, to keep it simple. Last week was not so great THM-wise. I haven't really lost any weight since the very first week I started, so I'm going to try my best to stick very much on plan this week and try full S days and full E days.
Sunday: Friends' house for lunch, out for supper
Monday: B - Steel Cut Oats & Cottage Berry Whip (E)
L - Veggie Pizza on Artisan Bread (E) Cottage Berry Whip for dessert
S - Leftover Artisan Pizza (I also made a "normal" pizza for rest of family). I had some Greek lemon yogurt and a few off-plan tortilla chips & salsa for snack)
Tuesday: B - 3 Eggs (S)
L - Low Carb Pancakes topped with whipped cream and strawberries (try adding 1 tsp flax meal and 1 tsp baking powder to recipe) (S)...these were just okay...prob wouldn't make again. I didn't care for the cream cheese taste in the pancakes.
