We are already getting some humid weather, not bad just enough to make it a little uncomfortable. On top of that I’m battling my Spring sinus problems. Happens every Spring and Winter like clockwork! Passes in about a week after the sinuses adjust. Because of that I really didn’t feel like putting a lot of effort into dinner so I made simple preparing a couple of Chili Dogs.
I used Ball Park White Smoked Turkey Franks that boiled. Just boiled in hot water for about 5 minutes and their done. Served them on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Buns. I topped them with Hormel Turkey With Beans. Comes in a can just heat it up in a small sauce pan and it’s ready. I also topped them with a bit of French’s Yellow Mustard and Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. For dessert later a Jello sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free Topping.
Ball Park Turkey Franks are so packed full of classic Ball Park satisfaction, don’t be surprised if he thinks he’s eating an original Ball Park.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili
Made a batch of the 3Bean Turkey Chili! Love this stuff. Not only is it delicious and healthy it’s easy to make and it’s a 1 pot meal! Just “Set it and forget it”, my favorite info commercial saying. About 5-6 hours on low in your crock pot and you’ll have some great tasting chili! This is great to freeze so you can have it anytime. I left the recipe at the end of the post. I topped the chili with some fresh grated Smoked Dutch Gouda Cheese and a side of Oyster Crackers.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Cheese Coneys
I wanted some Cheese Coneys for dinner and I wanted them hearty! So I used Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans, Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. Boil the Franks 4 -5 minutes and while the dogs are boiling warm up your Turkey Chili in a small sauce pan. To assemble place the Hot Dog in the Bun top with the Turkey Chili, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, add chopped Onions or Jalenpenos (Optional), a squirt of Yellow Mustard, and top with the Shredded Cheese. I also had a 1/2 a serving of Oyster Crackers. Now chow down on some delicious Dogs! For dessert later a Yoplait Delight 100 Calorie Chocolate Eclair Parfait.
One of my many favorites for dinner tonight Cheese Coneys, Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys! I used Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, Hormel turkey Chili w/ Beans, Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. Boil the Franks 4 -5 minutes and then assemble those Coneys! Open the Hot dog Buns up and sprinkle some Shredded Cheese in the Bun, then your Frank, spread the Chili on top of the Frank, add a little Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (Yellow Mustard optional), Shredded Cheese and ENJOY! You can also add some diced Onions or an Jalanpeno slices in there also.
Today’s Menu: Cincinnati Style Cheese Coney Casserole.
If you’re a fan of Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys like myself you’re going to love this easy recipe, a Crescent-topped casserole ready in only 30 minutes. Got the idea from a Pillsbury food recipe site but it was over 500 calories so it sounded delicious but I had to lighten up so I did. It’s an easy recipe to make with the original calling for Chili w/ Beans, Hot Dogs, Shredded American Cheese and Crescent Rolls. I lightened it up by using Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans, Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, Kraft 2% Shredded American Cheese, and Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. Comparing those 4 items from the original recipe to the lightened up recipe there was a calorie savings of 245 calories and 2 carbs. That’s the individual count among those ingredients. So this is just one recipe example of the calories and carbs you can cut by using healthier ingredients. I also added in a few dashes of Ground Cinnamon and frank’s Hot Sauce. I always try to add Cinnamon, a great natural for controlling diabetes. My lighter recipe version for this follows.
Prep Time: 15 Min
Total Time: 30 Min
2 Cans (15 oz each) Hormel Turkey Chili With Beans
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, (Optional)
3 Dashes Frank’s Hot Sauce, (Optional)
8 Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, Sliced
1 1/2 Cups Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese (6 oz)
1 Can (8 oz) Pillsbury Refrigerated Reduced Fat Crescent Dinner Rolls
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seed
* In 2-quart saucepan, mix Chili, Cinnamon, Frank’s Hot Sauce, and sliced Turkey Franks. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Spoon chili mixture into ungreased 13×9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish; sprinkle with cheese.
* Separate or cut dough into 4 long rectangles (if using crescent rolls, press perforations to seal). Place on top of chili mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seed.
* Bake at 375°F 15 to 20 minutes.
Today’s Menu: Cincinnati Style Chili Spaghetti 4 Way w/ Hearth Whole Grain Bread
Nothing like a Chili Spaghetti 4 Way especially when I can make it lower in calories and carbs. I used the Dixie Carb Counter Skinni Spaghetti, at 143 calories and 14 carbs. I used Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans and a half a serving of Kraft 2% Shredded Cheese. I seasoned everything with McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning and McCormick Perfect Pinch Parmesan Herb Seasoning. I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Hearth Whole Grain Bread. For dessert a bit later I’ll have a bowl of Breyers Carb Smart Ice Cream and it’s only 90 calories and 13 carbs.
I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti. I topped it Cincinnati Style! Seasoned with McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning and topped with Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans and Kraft Parmesan Shredded Cheese and Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheese.
