Happy Monday! Boy, that weekend flew by so quickly, I can’t believe another new week is here already! Let’s get started off on the right foot with a menu plan so that we don’t have to worry about meal time 🙂
The warm, spring-like weather we had last week was such a treat! We were actually able to grill outside twice…London Broil one night, and hamburgers one night. Having that nice grill flavor on the meat was so good, but because the sun goes down so much earlier in the winter, I ended up having to use a flashlight to check the doneness of the meat 😉
With our hamburgers this week, we finally got to try the new SmartBun rolls (not an affiliate link). They’ve actually been around for at least a few months, but I finally ordered some to try this week, along with a sample pack of the SmartCakes.
The buns were just meh, a little dry with a funny flavor (like a muffins made with baking blend), but the cakes were REALLY good!
The cakes are about the size of a small muffin-in-a-mug, which was a perfect portion to eat alongside a scoop of Breyer’s CarbSmart ice cream. I’ve tried both the coconut and the cinnamon so far, and liked both. I’m saving the chocolate flavor for tonight’s dessert 🙂
As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook and the Food for Life Cookbook (affiliate links). We’ve been using the THM cookbook for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.
