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.

Well my Dad’s getting much stronger, he’s able to walk without a walker now. Spent the afternoon at the rehab center with him. After getting home I fired up the grill and gathered everything left in the fridge from the other days grill out; Grilled Brats, Italian Turkey Sausages, Hot Dogs and Pork Sandwich Patties. i thought I would grill everything left and I would have my lunch for the next few days also.
I used Queen City Brats, Honeysuckle White Italian Turkey Sausages, Ball Park White Turkey Franks, and Bob Evans Pork Sausage Patties. For my dinner I had an Italian Turkey Sausage and a Pork Sausage Pattie. I served them on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Buns. Topped the Italian Turkey Sausage with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard and the Pork Pattie with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Cheddar/Jack Cheese and an Ice Cold Peach Diet Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

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!

Has Spring actually arrived and staying? 80 degrees and sunny out today, a perfect day! We”ll wait and see if drops back down to chilly in a day or so. On to tonight’s dinner; It was Turkey Taco Night along with a side of Fat Free Refried Beans.
Tonight’s meal was almost all Old El Paso. I used Old El Paso Stand Up Taco Shells, Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans, Old El Paso, Sliced Green Chilies, and Old El Paso Original Taco Seasoning. OLE! The Ground Turkey I used was Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey (99/1). I browned the Turkey in Canola Oil, seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Roasted Cumin, Dried Cilantro, and the Old El Paso Taco Seasoning. I almost always substitute Ground Turkey or Ground Buffalo for Ground Beef, all around healthier for you (See the end of the post).
My toppings for the Tacos include Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Chilies, Shredded Lettuce, Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, and Old El Paso Taco Sauce (Medium). As I said Earlier I used Old El Paso Stand Up Taco Shells and I had a small side of Refried Beans topped with Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. Can’t wait to make some Ground Buffalo Tacos here in the next week or so! For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice cream topped with some sliced Mangos.
Ground Turkey vs Ground Beef
A 100-g serving of ground turkey contains 148 calories, while the same-sized serving of ground beef contains 192 calories.
Ground turkey contains much less fat than ground beef, which is generally considered to be a benefit. Each 100-g serving of ground turkey contains 7.7 g of fat, while 100 g of ground beef contains 12.7 g.
Both ground beef and ground turkey can be appropriate for carbohydrate-restricted diets, as both are carbohydrate-free.
Ground beef and ground turkey are both good sources of protein. Ground turkey contains slightly more protein, 19.7 g, than ground beef, which contains 19.4 g. This difference is unlikely to affect your overall health.

Today’s Menu: Velveeta/Kraft Dinners Chili Cheese Mac Velveeta Cheesy Skillets w/ Whole Grain Bread
With Dad in rehab and Mom staying there the biggest part of the day I’ve been taking over all the daily house work, still looking for an easier way to vacuum while in a wheelchair! I’ve scanned the net but nothing out there. As hey say you gotta do what you have to do! Anyway for dinner I prepared Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinner Chili Cheese Mac, using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey and added 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. This is has become one of my favorite comfort foods. 1 pan so easy clean up, has, cheese, pasta, and for a meat it has ground turkey, and you can add a can of kidney beans to make it that much heartier!
As in all the Chessy Skillet Dinners the kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 2 cups of water, the seasoning and pasta. Simmer for 10 – 12 minutes and add the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above. The Ultimate Cheeseburger Dinner is very good but i think this is my new favorite. I really like the Chili Seasoning! Another one pan quick, easy, and delicious Velveeta/Kraft Dinner! I also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
Kraft Dinners Chili Cheese Mac Velveeta Cheesy Skillets features creamy cheese sauce with pasta and premium seasonings. Make your family smile with ooey gooey Velveeta Cheesy Skillets.

I was making a light Breakfast this morning around 6:30 and it was 64 degrees. At noon it was 40 degrees and by nightfall they say around 35 degrees with a frost warning for in the morning. A very odd Spring this year. I spent the afternoon at the hospital visiting my Dad who is getting a lot better but will have to spend some time in rehab to regain his strength. So after that I really didn’t want to cook so once again the kitchen was closed and it was Subway to the rescue! I had a 6″ Black Forest Ham and Turkey Sub on a 9 grain Wheat Bun w/ Black Olives, Lettuce while Mom had a Subway Club. The total calories for the sub is 320 calories and 44 carbs. I added Hellman’s Light Mayo and French’s Yellow mustard to the Sandwich when I got home. I also had a side of Ruffle’s Light Fat Free Potato Chips, 80 calories and 17 carbs per serving (15 Chips). For dessert/snack later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

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.

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.
