Smoky Corn and Black Bean Pizza
The secret to a grilled pizza is having all your ingredients ready to go before you head out to the grill. Make it a meal: Toss the extra black beans, diced tomato and some avocado with prewashed salad greens and a tangy vinaigrette and dinner is on the table in no time…..

Black Bean Nacho Pizza
Break out the napkins! This pie is an over-the-top, vegetarian concoction with black-bean spread, Jack cheese, tomatoes, scallions, olives and pickled jalapenos; it’s part nacho, part pizza. For an even more decadent treat, serve with low-fat sour cream. Beer pairing: Spicy foods need spicy beers—go for an India Pale Ale (IPA). If you’re not a hop-head, the malty sweetness of brown ales work well with the sweeter elements on the pizza…..

Grilled Pizza with Pesto, Tomatoes & Feta
Dazzle your guests, and keep the kitchen cool, by baking pizza on the backyard grill. For convenience, this recipe uses prepared pizza dough, found in most supermarkets, and pesto from a jar……

Grill cleaning hint…..


Save on expensive grill cleaners by simply using WD-40 instead. Get rid of charred food by removing the grates from the barbecue and spraying them with the oil. Let sit for five to ten minutes, then wipe off and clean with soap and water.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Baked Crinkle Fries



Grilled Ham and Cheese w Baked Crinkle Fries 004
For Breakfast this morning I fried up some slices Glier’s Turkey Goetta and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i headed up to our local Kroger and picked up a few items for Mom and myself. Then on the way back I took the car through the car wash and back home. The heat and humidity has returned, blah! It does beat zero and snow though!! Did some cleaning outside. Back inside I had to repair a wheel on the vacuum again. The Hoover Cordless Vacuum is one of the best buys I’ve made, It makes sweeping so much easier without dealing with cord. Wanted to keep it simple and light for Dinner, tonight its a Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.


Grilled Ham and Cheese w Baked Crinkle Fries 002

I used Boar’s Head Deluxe Ham, Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I had purchased the Boar’s Head Deluxe Ham at Kroger, on sale the other day. I love all the Boar’s Head Meats and Cheese. Always fresh and lower in calories and sodium. To make the sandwich I buttered one side of both slices of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and then on the unbuttered sides layered the Ham and then the Cheese. I then grilled the sandwich in a preheated pan that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Grilling both sides until golden brown. I love a Grilled Cheese Sandwich, but the Boar’s Head Ham kicks it up another notch!


Ore Ida Crinkle Fries4_crop (1)
For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.






Boar’s Head Meats and Cheese

Branded Deluxe Ham
Water added.
It all started with Branded Deluxe Ham. Slow cooked for a tender taste, this was our very first product and continues to be a favorite today.
