With Mom and Dad both still under the weather I wanted to fix them a hot and hearty dinner. I went to Meijer early this morning and purchased a Jennie – O Oven Ready Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast. They both love Turkey so I knew they would enjoy this meal. I prepared; a Roasted Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Garlic Knot Rolls.
I love using the Jennie – O Oven Ready Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast. It’s an easy and delicious way to get your Turkey on! Comes in an Oven Ready Bag that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 170 degrees. It also now has a pop up inserted in the breast that pops up when done. The Turkey came out juicy and delicious, excellent flavor!
To go with the Turkey Breast I prepared a side of Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. My favorite Mashed Potatoes over any other or homemade. Just heat for a total of 6 minutes in the microwave and their ready! I also heated up a can of Del Monte Green Beans along with baking some Walmart Marketside Garlic Knot Rolls. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
Get all the great benefits of Oven Ready™ in a smaller-sized boneless and skinless turkey breast; this delicious home-cooked turkey breast is the perfect dinner to serve year-round.Goes directly from your freezer to your oven with no thawing.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Tenders w/ Rice, Sweet Peppers, Mushrooms, and Garlic Bread
Chicken Tenders w/ Rice, Sweet Peppers, Mushrooms, and Garlic Bread tonight for dinner. As I said I tried a couple of new ingredients to prepare dinner tonight. The Chicken Tenders were Weight Watchers Chicken Tenders. I purchased them at Walmart and haven’t seen them elsewhere yet. They come frozen and preweighed at 2 oz. Each tender is 99% fat-free and only 60 calories and 0 carbs. You can bake them or prepare them by stove top, which is how I made them. To prepare them I seasoned the chicken with sea salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heated 1 tablespoons of the oil. Then sautéed the chicken over medium-high heat, turning once, until gold on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Transferred the Chicken to a plate.
Now to prepare the rest of meal I needed 1 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 cups thinly sliced mixed Red, Yellow, Orange and/or Green Bell Peppers, Small Package of Baby Bella Sliced Mushrooms, 1 large garlic cloves, finely chopped, 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, 1 tablespoons high-quality Balsamic Vinegar, and 1 Serving of Rice A Roni (Chicken Flavor).
Using the same skillet as the Chicken was fried in add the remaining 1 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook the bell peppers, stirring often, until just softened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, Stir in about half of the basil and the vinegar. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the sliced mushrooms. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining basil and season with salt and pepper. As this was finishing I prepared the Rice A Roni, microwaved for 3 1/2 minutes and served. I also baked some Walmart Bakery Garlic Knot Bread. This makes one delicious chicken dish! The sweet peppers and Balsamic Vinegar are a great pairing with the chicken. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

An extra tasty dinner tonight, Baked and Glazed Pork Chop in Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce w/ Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas. I was at Jungle Jim’s Market last week and came across the JB’s Fatboy Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce. First time I’ve ever seen this Sauce from JB’s Fat Boy and it looked too good to pass up. Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce, it just sounds like it was meant for Pork!
First I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I then rolled my Chops in flour that was seasoned with Sea Salt and Black Pepper. I placed the Chops in a small broiler pan with a wire rack and baked until the temperature of the Chops reached 165 degrees. I turned the Chops over after 15 minutes of baking and with a small basting brush basted on the Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce. Continued baking until done. The Chops came out moist and full of great flavor. The Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce is a perfect Glaze or Dipping Sauce for Pork! Love this Sauce like the rest of the JB’s Fat Boy sauces. The Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce is a great combo, you can taste the Mustard and the Apple Cider and then there’s a sneaky hint of heat to it. Great Sauce! I think it would go well for Chicken also, I’ll find out soon.
For sides to go with my pork Chops i prepared Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. First time making the Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes. The recipe came from the Simply Potatoes web site but I’m not really a fan of their Mashed Potatoes, love their other Potato products, so I used Bob Evans “Down on the Farm” Mashed Potatoes. I microwaved the Mashed Potatoes for a total of 5 minutes and when done added a 1/ teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper and 1/2 cup of freshly shredded Murray’s Light White Cheddar. Stirred until well mixed and served. I love Potatoes and this Potato recipe is fantastic!! The Cayenne and white Cheddar really lights the Mashed Potatoes up! You have to give this one a try. I left the original recipe and web link at the end of the post. I also had Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas and Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later some Breyers Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Hot Fudge Topping.
JB’s Fat Boy uses the finest quality, all natural ingredients to create products that will enhance the taste of each prepared meat product, so that each meal will be a pleasured, memorable experience.
Give the crowd something to buzz about when you add Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce to all your meat products. Serve directly as a condiment or coat on grilled meats during the last few minutes of cooking time. Also works great as a ‘Dip’ for any meat or chicken strips. 12 oz.
Ingredients: Brown Sugar, Apple Cider Vinegar, Vinegar, Apple Puree, Mustard, Honey, Habanero Pepper, Salt, Natural Smoke Flavor, Onion, Garlic, Spices, Filtered Water
Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes
Cheesy, peppery mashed potatoes pair well with roasted chicken for a great weeknight meal. An easy 5-minute mashed potato recipe.

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.

Another rainy and gloomy day outside around here again. From what the news says we have about 3 or 4 more days of this, Blah! Oh well just hunker down and make the best of it. So there’s nothing better to beat the blahs than a good meal!
So for dinner I prepared a Smoked Cheddar & Mushroom Bison Burger w/ Crinkle Fries! I used Great Range Ground Bison Sirloin. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Steakhouse Seasoning, then pan fried it in Canola Oil about 4 minutes per side to medium rare. Served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun topped with Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms and a slice of Bordon Smoked Cheddar. LOVE BISON and Bison Burgers!
For a side I baked some Alexia Crinkle Fries. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with some fresh sliced Peaches!

Still using up some of those great leftovers from the Thanksgiving Day Feast! I used slices of the Thanksgiving Bird and pan fried them just to warm them up and brown them up a bit. I served it on toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread with a little bit of Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil and a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese.
For my Soup I used Amy’s Organic Light in Sodium – Cream of Tomato Soup. This might be the creamiest and best tasting can Tomato Soup there is! Plus it’s only 110 calories, 2.5 grams fat, and 19 carbs. I served with a dab of Daisy Light Sour Cream. For dessert later a slice of my Mom’s Splenda made Apple Pie!

Today’s Menu: Top Sirloin & Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Sliced New Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread
It was 70 degrees and sunny yesterday and it started out at 55 this morning and it’s been falling temperatures all day. Parents are both down with the flu so I’ve been busy all day. For dinner I couldn’t wait to break out those Top Sirloin Steaks from Costco I purchased yesterday. I believe Costco has some of the most tender and flavorful Steaks and Chops around! The first Steak I got out was huge! I cut into thirds and each Steak was more than enough for one person.
I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and then pan fried it in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I would have loved to grill these but the weather prevented that, blowing rain and even a little bit of sleet. The Steaks were so thick I had to fry them longer than normal to get these at medium rare. I flipped them over a couple of times and then even had to lay them on their sides for 2 or 3 minutes. They came out great! Tender, moist and just flat out delicious. It would be hard to find a better steak than Costco’s.
For side dishes I had Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas, a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Whole Grain Bread
A beautiful sunny but crisp Fall Day out today! So for dinner tonight I wanted something hot and hearty so I went with Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken ‘n’Noodles Fixins’. It comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, For the Chicken I purchased a Roasted Chicken from Walmart earlier in the day and pulled all the meat off the bone. I first started the Noodles and Sauce and heated it until the Sauce was bubbling and heated throughout. I then added the Chicken that I had pulled off the bone and stirred until the chicken was mixed in and heated and served. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. I left the info and web site link to Margaret Holmes at the end of the post. I had sides of Walmart Market Side Sugar Snap Peas and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
Chicken n’ Noodles will become a comfort-food favorite in any household. Add boneless, skinless chicken breast to a can of Simple Suppers Chicken n’ Noodles, which is filled with plump noodle dumplings and special seasonings.
