Easter Menu

Menu for Easter Sunday

- Unpotato salad*
- Open faced sloppy joes on oopsie rolls with hot pepper jack cheese
- Some hot pepper jack cheese
- 12 saltines with natural peanut butter**
- Meatloaf
- 3 frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup English walnuts

*I used Nancy's recipe and it's incredible. If you like potato salad, you will love this. It's just mustardy enough, if you ask me. I find a lot of the pre-made salads in the store MUCH too mustardy (and not to mention, don't even think about how long they have been on the shelf!) I especially love the ones that say they are Amish. Trust me, I live amongst the Amish and they did not make that potato salad, lol.

To get on with it, I used green onions and regular vinegar, just like did in her recipe and it's sooo good! The only thing I changed was I used frozen cauliflower instead of fresh and I cooked it for 7 minutes and 77 seconds in the microwave ahead of time.

**The saltines were not low carb, but at least incorporating in the healthy protein of the natural peanut butter surely helped my blood sugar not to spike (as much). I do not know this to be true, but I swear, I heard somewhere that incorporating a protein with a refined carbohydrate can help lessen the blow to blood sugar? I do not have a glucometer, so I cannot say for sure!

I hope that you all had a lovely Easter! Even if you are not particularly religious, this time of year is certainly time to celebrate new beginnings.


  1. Nancy is awesome. I already love her recipes, and I can't wait to learn to make them.

    My Easter was missing a few things, you and Daisy. Other than that, it was good.

    It's important to not let little stuff put a pause in your step. Have available foods for when you get back on plan. But there will be days that you will want to be off plan and be ok with that decision. Not hate yourself for it.

    I love you so much. I'm always here to support you.
