Our weekly family friendly menu plan including a review of The Biscoff Cookie and Spread Cookbook and a recipe for Biscoff Pancakes!
This was my first official week on Weight Watchers and I’m so excited to share that I was down 5.6 pounds! I know not to expect that big of a loss every week, but it sure was a great way to motivate me to keep this up! Seeing a lower number makes going to the gym at 4:40am and tracking every last bite I put into my mouth all the more worth it. I’m hoping I continue to see results as a reflection of the effort I’m putting into it.
Today I’m sharing our menu plan for the week as well as an inside look at my friend, Katrina’s, new and awesome cookbook The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook. Ironic that I talk about Weight Watchers and this book in the same post, isn’t it? Luckily with Weight Watchers, every food is an ok food, as long as it’s in moderation! I’ll get to Katrina’s book in a second, but first, here’s what’s on our menu for the week!
- Monday, November 17th Chicken & Fennel in White Wine Broth (changing out the fennel)
- Tuesday, November 18th Slow Cooker Beans and Beef from Taste of Home
- Wednesday, November 19th Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup
- Thursday, November 20th Mediterranean Chicken Pasta from Chef in Training
- Friday, November 21st French Onion Pork Chops from Bake Your Day
- Saturday, November 22nd Pepper Jack Portabella Mushroom Sandwiches from Weight Watchers
- Sunday, November 23rd Breakfast for Dinner (Buttermilk Biscoff Pancakes – recipe below)
Sunday is going to be a special Breakfast for Dinner day… I love breakfast for dinner, and I especially love it when dinner includes pancakes made with creamy Biscoff spread! Katrina has this recipe and so many other fantastic, indulgent, oh so good recipes made with one of my favorite food products…Biscoff Spread…in her new cookbook!
If you aren’t familiar with the famous Biscoff Cookies or Spread, now is the time for you to become acquainted. (You can even buy both products on Amazon if your local store doesn’t carry it!) They are two food items that I know will be gone in a hot minute if I have them stocked in my pantry… I just can’t resist the stuff!
Katrina’s cookbook uses Biscoff Cookies and Spread in unique, fun, ways! Any cookbook that even includes breakfast items with Biscoff is my kind of cookbook.
The recipes are simple, yet indulgent and Katrina’s photographs are beautiful! This is a cookbook that I’m sure if you make recipes out of and take the food places, everyone will be asking for the recipe! With all the baking I’m sure that’s coming your way this holiday season, use the Biscoff Cookie and Spread Cookbook for unique treats to share.
You can buy the Biscoff Cookie and Spread Cookbook on Amazon or at any major book retailer near you. I highly recommend it!
Now, here is Katrina’s Buttermilk Biscoff Pancake Recipe! Enjoy!
