Today’s Menu: Blackened Turkey and Salami Mini Sub Hogie w/ Baked Fries
Another beautiful Spring Day out again. I think everyone is thankful that it’s finally arrived! Spent part of the day riding around on the 4 wheel mobility cart and down around the lake, its beautiful out. For dinner I wanted something light so I prepared a Blackened Turkey and Salami Mini Sub Hogie w/ Baked Fries.
I used an Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Mini Sub Bun. Then for my toppings I used Boar’s Head Blackened Turkey, one of my new favorite Boar’s Head Meat Selections. It has a fantastic flavor with some nice heat. Along with the Turkey I also had Kroger Brand Private Selection Hard Salami and a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. For a side I Baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries topped with a little Hunt’s Ketchup. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Turkey on Whole Grain w/ Potato Bacon Chowder
Gorgeous day out today, 79 and sunny! Well while at Kroger early this morning shopping for some ingredients for the Potato Bacon Chowder I was going to prepare later for dinner I came across a new item, Boar’s Head Blackened Turkey. I asked the lady behind the counter if she had tried it and she said they had just put it in the Deli Case very early this morning. So she sliced us both off a piece to try it and its a winner! You taste the Blackened and there’s a nice hint of heat to it. I checked on Boar’s Head web site and it’s not even listed yet. So I ended getting a 1/3 of a pound for sandwiches. For dinner tonight, Blackened Turkey on Whole Grain w/ Potato Bacon Chowder.
For the Sandwich I used the Boar’s Head Blackened Turkey, Hellman’s Light Mayo, French’s Yellow Mustard, Bibb Lettuce, a slice of Sargento Muenster Cheese, and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun. You have to try this Boar’s Head Blackened Turkey, it’s delicious!
Now for the Chowder. The Potato Bacon Chowder came from Mrs. City Boy. I’ve left the original recipe and her web link at the bottom of the post. Thank you Becky, great recipe! I made mine a bit different from the original recipe. I used Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon, Green Onions, Del Monte Diced New Potatoes, Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Chicken, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, 2% White Milk, and Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley for seasoning. I omitted the cup of chopped Onions and used Green Onions to give it that Onion taste. I’m just not real big on Onions. To prepare it fry the Turkey Bacon, add Green Onions and saute’ 2-3 minutes. Pour off fat. Add Diced Potatoes and Water. Bring to boil; cover and simmer 10-15 minutes until Potatoes are tender. Stir in Soup and Sour Cream. Gradually add Milk. Add Salt, Pepper and Parsley. Continue heating for a few minutes to allow flavors to mix. There you have it one nice Chowder! Fantastic flavor and it’s got good thickness to it, which I love thick Chowders, Chili and such. this would a good Clam Chowder also. Thank you again Becky! For dessert/snack later Thin Sliced Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna, sliced Cracker Barrel 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and a serving of Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.
8 slices bacon, cut
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups cubed potatoes
1 cup water
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1-3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons parsley
Fry bacon, add onion and saute’ 2-3 minutes. Pour off fat. Add potatoes and water.
Bring to boil; cover and simmer 10-15 minutes until potatoes are tender. Stir in soup and sour cream.
Gradually add milk. Add salt, pepper and parsley.
Continue heating for a few minutes to allow flavors to mix.
When I cut my bacon I cut each slice into eighths, but it can be cut bigger or smaller depending on how much you like it dispersed into the soup.
Since I used dried parsley, I used about 1 or 1-1/2 tablespoons rather than the whole 2 the recipe calls for, but again, it’s a matter of taste preference.

Started the day off by going to my bi-monthly visit to Jungle Jim’s Market. As usual when going there it’s an adventure in grocery shiopping! There are deli’s and then there is Jungle Jim’s Deli, which is incredible! They carry every known Boar’s Head product there is. The produce and meat’s is second to none. I picked up some Purple Potatoes, Polenta, Rainbow Trout and stock up on some Snapple among other things. I also loaded some of that delicious Boar’s Head Meats. Needless to say guess what’s for dinner!
