Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Cut Green Beans & Potatoes and Sliced Carrots


Baked Salmon w Cut Green Beans & Potatoes and Sliced Carrots 012
A cool and cloudy morning and day around here again. Had rain showers on and off throughout the day. Had a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter for Breakfast. After that I went to Kroger for a few items and then on to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. All caught up on everything so I did some cleaning and updating on the computer. Then it was an afternoon of NFL Football. For dinner tonight it’s a Baked Salmon w/ Cut Green Beans & Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.



Baked Salmon w Cut Green Beans & Potatoes and Sliced Carrots 002

So from the freezer I grabbed a Salmon Fillet last night and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Rinsed it with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist.


For my side dishes it was all Del Monte. For one side I had a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans & Potatoes. One of my favorite Del Monte Products, nice combo of the Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes. Then for another side it was a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Turkey Sausage Pizza on a Cauliflower CrustTurkey Sausage Pizza on a Cauliflower Crust

cooking spray
½ head cauliflower
2 garlic cloves
¾ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten or ¼ cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 JENNIE-O® Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages
3 crimini or white button mushrooms, sliced
1 cup shredded kale
⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
pinch of freshly ground pepper
5 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1 medium heirloom tomato or beefsteak tomato, sliced
¼ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
4 basil leaves

Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

Line pizza pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.

Cut cauliflower into florets. Add cauliflower florets and 2 garlic cloves to food processor and pulse until the cauliflower turns into rice-sized pieces.

Spread cauliflower and garlic across baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes until cooked through; set aside to cool.

Make the cauliflower crust dough:
In bowl, combine cooked cauliflower, ¾ cup mozzarella cheese, egg, and oregano; mix well until a dough-like texture forms.

Form and bake crust:
Spread mixture onto the parchment paper-coated 10-inch pizza pan and create a circular crust.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Allow crust to cool 10 minutes before removing the parchment paper and placing the toppings on it.

While the crust is cooling, prepare the toppings.Jennie O Make the Switch

Prepare your toppings:
Remove turkey sausages from their casings. In medium size pan on medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. To heated oil, add turkey sausage. As it cooks, break apart with wooden spoon. Cook the turkey until done, approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Always cook turkey until well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer.

To turkey, add mushrooms, kale, salt and pepper. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until mushrooms have softened and the kale is wilted down.

Assemble your pizza:
Layer sausage mixture, tomatoes, ¼ cup cheese and basil over the slightly cooled pizza crust.

Bake your pizza:
Bake 5 to 6 minutes or until pizza is hot and bubbly.

* Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.

Today’s Menu: Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers


Skyline Chili Spaghetti 012
Rain, rain, and more rain today! Made some French Toast for breakfast this morning. First time in a while I’ve had any. Made it with using Egg Beater’s for the Eggs and Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread and used maple Grove Sugarless Maple Syrup for the topping. After breakfast did some laundry for Mom and that was about it for me today. This afternoon it was the easy chair, remote, and watching The Ohio State Buckeyes Football. For dinner tonight it’s Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers.

One of those days where nothing sounded good. Finally decided to go with a Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers. What better way to beat those rainy day blues!

As always I used my favorite, the Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti. They sell it packaged for the microwave, a bit Skyline Chili Spaghetti Hot dog 001smaller size than what you get at a Skyline but just right for those still watching calories and carbs. It comes with Spaghetti topped with Skyline Chili. I added a few dashes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to kick it up a bit and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese to make it a 3 Way. The Chili Spaghetti is 270 calories and 20 net carbs. I also had a side of Skyline Oyster Crackers. And if you’re having Oyster Crackers, then Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is a must! Just add a few drops on top of the Crackers, local way to have your Oyster Crackers. Also had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper that I had sat in the freezer a few minutes. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

SKYLINE CHILI & SPAGHETTI Microwavable PackageSkyline Chili Spaghetti 001

19 health benefits to drinking green tea

I do feel drinking green tea has had a positive impact on my health. Drinking green tea in the mornings before eating or drinking anything else did make my body feel good.

For me it wasn’t the least bit addictive. I actually forced myself to drink it because I could feel the benefits.

There are so many good quality green teabags available these days. So not is it only healthy, but easy to get.

When I go to my favorite Japanese restaurant I always order green tea.

Do you drink green tea or believe in its benefits? If so, what kind do you prefer?

Thank you to Kimmy for passing this Hint along……

Instead of throwing out the last of the contents from jars and shakers of dried herbs, put what’s left into a separate one and add more of your leftover herbs each time you have some. You will end up with an interesting jar of mixed herbs for your dishes. Careful what you throw together if you have spices though, do a separate jar for those!
