Another beautiful sunny day outside again! I fired the grill up for myself and some friends who were in town. I grilled up some Bratts, Turkey Franks, Italian Turkey Sausage, and Pork Patties.
I used Queen City brand Bratts, Ball Park Turkey Franks, Honeysuckle White Italian Turkey Sausage, and Bob Evans Original Pork Sandwich Patties. I made a side of Tossed salad and also had Ruffles Light Potato Chips. Love these Chips only 80 calories and 17 carbs per serving! I made some Chip Dip using Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream and Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix. For dessert later tonight for myself, Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Well I’m off to catch up with some old friends. Have a great weekend!

Well my original plan was to have a new recipe with Chicken Tenders that had Honey in the recipe. I thought I had plenty of Honey onhand but as I was gathering my ingredients I found I just had a small amount and it had turned to Sugar. I’ll learn to check ahead! So with that put on hold I went with Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder and Hearty Potatoes w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
The Clam Chowder was easy to prepare; just empty the can into a small sauce pan and stir and heat. It’s a very good tasting Chowder that’s nice and thick. I served it with a side of Skyline Oyster Crackers. To go with the Chowder I made a Grilled Cheese Sandwich using Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar Jack Cheese. Everything simple but filling and delicious. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwich w/ Creamy Tomato Soup
Another dreary day out today, a lot of rain. Not much of an appetite today so I went with a Soup and Sandwich. Dinner tonight, Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwich w/ Creamy Tomato Soup.
For the Sandwich I used Kroger Brand private Selection Smokehouse Hickory Ham, Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. I just heated the Ham up a bit in a skillet and it was ready. I used Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup, one of my favorites! Ric and creamy Soup and it’s only 110 calories and 19 carbs per serving. There’s 2 servings per can so I always have my lunch the next day when I fix this. Served it with a side of Skyline Oyster Crackers. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Del Monte No Sugar Added Sliced Peaches.
Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup

Nasty day out today, dark, gloomy, light rain, and waiting for up to 5 – 6 inches of snow. BLAH! Well to warm it up on the inside I made everybody’s favorite, Cincinnati Style Chili & Cheese Coneys! For dinner I prepared Cincinnati Style Chili & Cheese Coneys w/ Oyster Crackers and Baked Crinkle Fries.
To make the Coneys I used Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, Skyline Chili, Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar, French’s Yellow Mustard, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (Optional), Chopped Onions (Optional), and Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. To assemble a Coney is easy; Bun, Frank, Mustard, Chili, Hot Sauce, and to top it all off Cheese! What is not to like! I served them on Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns with some Oyster Crackers on the side. My parents wanted some fries also so I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Tags: Cheese, cook, Griddle, Ham, Ham and cheese sandwich, Home, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, Sargento Cheese
I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, Sargento Ultra Thin Colby/Jack Cheese, and Kroger Brand Private Selection Smokehouse Hickory Ham. I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to coat the grill. As I said it’s quick, easy and delicious. The Smokehouse Ham is some of the best packaged Ham there is, very flavorful! The Sargento Cheese is only 120 calories and 1 carb for 3 slices. Ah the Cheese.
I’ve been using Kraft Cheese products my entire life. But in the past couple of years the size and amount of the various Kraft Cheese has been getting smaller and smaller with the price remaining the same or in some instances increasing. I’m a huge fan of their Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheese (Block). That has shrunk from 540g down to 500g (was 600g in 2007). Plus I’ve noticed that the local stores around here are carrying less Kraft Cheese Products and the 2% Cheese products are real hard to find. So with all that I’ve almost completely switched over to Sargento Cheese. The prices are somewhat cheaper most of the time and they have a fantastic selection of Reduced Fat and Ultra Thin Cheese products. So it’s goodbye Kraft, hello Sargento!
Quite a shift in our weather here in good ole Ohio. From near record highs near 70 degrees over the weekend to 28 degrees with a cold wind here on Monday! Got to keep thinking warm and sunny! Anyway for dinner one of my favorites a Smoked Cheddar and Mushroom Bison Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries! I used the last of my Buffalo Gal 1/3 Bison Patties. Their a really good looking plump Burger but overall I think I prefer Wild Idea or Great Range Brand bison, in fact I just placed an order with Wild Idea Buffalo.
I pan fried the Burger on medium heat in Canola Oil about 4 minutes per side. The Burger came out moist and juicy with that fantastic Bison taste. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun topped with Sauteed Mushrooms and a slice of Borden Smoked Cheddar. I left the Buffalo Gal product info and web site link at the bottom of the post. For a side I had a serving of Baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Suggested Cooking Tips:
Bison burger is lean (ranging from 93-96% lean) so when grilling or pan frying the burger – place it on medium heat – COVER. Allow the burger to do its cooking on one side. Don’t poke, smash or continually flip the burger because you want to maintain all of the moisture and fat in the meat. When burger appears mostly cooked – flip one time and in 30-45 seconds it should be ready to serve. You might find that using a meat thermometer is helpful when first cooking the burger. It should reach 160 degrees internal temp.

I’ve still been fighting the end of the flu but finally about up to full strength again! I’ll have a bug for a day or two at most but this one’s been a pain to rid of, but I hear it’s bad all over. I had no clue what to prepare so I hit the local Kroger early this morning and scanned the aisles till I came across the Perdue Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and I added Baked Crinkle Fries for the dinner.
First time I used Perdue Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage. Their 150 calories and 1 carb. Easy to prepare; Just brown them on all sides in a skillet then add about a 1/2″ of water to pan and cover and cook till done. They came plump and juicy! These are as good as The Honeysuckle White Brand Sweet Italian turkey Sausages, which are my favorite! i served them on a Healthy Life Whiole Grain Bun and topped them with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping.
For dessert/snack later something new. I had purchased a California Sourdough Square Bread at the Kroger Bakery. I cut a hole out on the top and hollowed the inside out, leaving about a 1/4″ inch of Bread around the inside. Earlier I had taken some 3 Bean Turkey Chili I had frozen and set it out to thaw. To prepare it I warmed the Chili up and when heated poured it into the hollowed out Bread Square. I topped with a bit of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I then served it with the Bread that I pulled from the center of the Bread and also some Tostito’s Whole Grain Scoops.
PERDUE® Ground Chicken and Turkey as well as Burger and Sausage varieties are the perfect fit for consumers seeking healthier lifestyles. These items are made from the highest quality boneless, skinless chicken or turkey.

I had skimpped on Breakfast the last few mornings, in hurry to get a few things done early. So I was really wanting a good Breakfast so what better time than Dinner Time! I prepared One Egg Sunnyside Up, Turkey Breakfast Patties, Hash Browns, and Toast. This sounds good enough for any meal!
I prepared the Egg and Turkey Patties on a griddle and the Hash Browns in a small skillet. I really like using the griddle when possible. All you have to do is give it a light spray of Pam and your ready to cook. No Oil needed which means less fat and calories. Scrambled Eggs and Sunnyside Up are my favorite ways to prepare Eggs, I went with Sunnyside Up. I used Jennie – O Lean Turkey Breakfast Sausage. Comes in a roll, just slice and form the size of Patties you want. For my Hash Browns I used Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Then to top everything off I toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. To drink a nice cold glass of 2% Milk. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.
