Menu Plan Monday: Week of Slow Cooking

Why is it men don’t eat for a day they lose 5 pounds? Women don’t eat for a week and only lose 1 pound. LOL. Yup, that is my first week total.

1 week = 1 pound πŸ™

I think you’re right, peeps, going to need to implement the exercise factor. I am going to add in 2 days of walking 1.5 miles and 1 day of serious stair climing – 12 flights of stairs! Well, the first two tries on those stairs, I may not make that climb. But after the 3rd time it should be no prob. I am expecting some serious gluteal maximus pain, but it will result in extra nice form in a pair of jeans. πŸ˜‰

This week: Now that my husband has been working overtime and I get home late, it has proved extra hard to get a homecooked dinner on the table (want to eat at 7-8pm?). I have decided to implement a week of slowcooking. Put the ingredients in the crockpot during morning and wha la!, a delicious dinner at night.

Here is this week’s meal plan with delicious recipes from A Year of Slowcooking (they really are delicious):

Well, I am off to start week 2 of my portion controlled, exercise happy, kick off the weight week! πŸ˜‰

      Hi Debbie, Thank you for stopping by! And yes, I would love to check out the Crock Pot Wednesday. Have you ever tried the Hirino Pork Roast? Yum! Highly recommend it!

      I do, too. Why I don’t cook with it more often is beyond me! I love how Stephanie has her ‘verdict’ ratings. So far, my verdicts match hers pretty close. So, if it says the recipe is good. It probably is worth making. πŸ™‚

    Great menu! And congrats on the lb! I know it may not seem like much but it’s a start and with determination they’ll shed off in no time. I love the idea of enchilada chili.

      Thank you, Crystal! I saw that recipe the other day… have to make it! Paired up with some cornbread, I think it will be real good. πŸ˜‰

    You are SO right! Men always lose weight so quickly & easily!! SO not fair! lol! But a pound lost is better than a pound found right? πŸ˜‰ Your meals sound wonderful, I do love my crockpot too! A definite lifesaver!!

      I hear my aunt complain about it all the time – husband lost 15 pounds, she lost 5-7. LOL. Just totally unfair! But a pound is a pound. And if it momentums like my debt pay down, then we are doing okay.

      Try some of A Year of Slow Cooking’s recipes. They are so yummy!
