Today’s Menu: Pizza Three Ways – Pepperoni, Turkey Sausage, and Ham & Pineapple

I had three of the  Meijer Wheat Pita Bread’s left so I used them to make three different Pizzas for everyone for dinner tonight. I made a Turkey Pepperoni, Turkey Sausage, and a Ham & Pineapple Pizza. The Pita Bread is only 80 calories and 17 carbs per serving which is half the Pita. At that the whole Pita Bread is only 160 calories. Pita Bread is agreat alternative for your Pizza Crust, being lower in calories and carbs. I used Ragu Pizza Sauce, Kraft 2% Shredded Mozzarella Cheese for all 3 Pizzas.  I brushed each Pita Bread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and  baked them at 385 degrees for about 9 minutes.

On the Pepperoni Pizza I used Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Mushrooms and Sliced Black Olives.
For the Turkey Sausage Pizza I used Jennie – O Italian Turkey Sausage, Sliced Black Olives, and Mushrooms. I precooked the Turkey Italian Sausage before adding it as a topping.
For the last Pizza I used Mushrooms, Sarah Lee Thin Sliced Honey Baked Ham along with Dole Pineapple Chunks.

It was unanimous I needed to make more of the Ham & Pineapple. What a great flavor combination! The hint of Salt from the Ham and Sweetness from the Pineapple makes a delicious Pizza. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with some Dole Pineapple Chunks that were leftover from dinner.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Twas the Night before Christmas Poem

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

“Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”

Today’s Menu: Bison Pattie Melt w/ Turkey Chili Spud

Cool and windy day outside today so I wanted a healthy and hearty, stick to your ribs comfort food dinner! I had a Bison Pattie Melt w/ Turkey Chili Spud. I used Ground Bison Sirloin that I flattened out a bit. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I fried it in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. After I flipped the burger I topped it with a slice of Hardwood Smoked Gouda Cheese. I served it on Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread that I toasted. I had a Turkey Chili Spud as a side. I baked a Russet Potato and topped it with Hormel Turkey Chili With Beans! It tasted even better than it sounds! For a dessert/snack later tonight I’ll be trying something new Tostitos artisan Roasted Garlic & Black Bean Tortilla Chips. I had heard how good they were so I decided it was time to try them out. The chips are 140 calories and 18 carbs per serving. I’ll have them with Kroger Brand Organic Black Bean & Corn Salsa.

Today’s Menu: Bison Sirloin & Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Green Beans & Carrots and Harvest Grain Bread

Back to the Bison for dinner tonight. I had a Bison Sirloin that I seasoned with McCormick Grinder Steakhouse Seasoning. I pan fried it in a a 1/2 a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. Topped it with Sauteed Mushrooms that were seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Smoked Ground Cumin, and Parsly. Then lightly sauteed in Extra Virgin Olive oil and a pat of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

For sides I had Kroger Bakery Harvest Grain Bread and the leftover Pero Family Farms Green Beans & Carrots I had the other night. The Green Beans & Carrots was something I picked up earlier in the week at Meijer. Easy to fix, microwave in the bag or boil in 3 cups of water for 7 minutes which is what I did. They came out crisp and delicious. For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Woke up hungry and ready to eat this morning. So I put together a filling and healthy breakfast. I had French Toast w/ Turkey Bacon. I used a flat griddle pan to make everything. I used Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon and for the toast I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I then used 2 servings of Egg Beaters and added Ground Cinnamon and Nutmeg and mixed well. I dipped 2 slices of bread in the mixture, coating on both sides. I started grilling the Bacon first and then added the toast after flipping the Bacon, this way they were both done at the same time. I topped the French Toast with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Joseph’s Sugar Free Maple Syrup. I love this Syrup tastes just as good as Syrup with all the Sugar. A serving which is a 1/4 Cup is only 35 calories and 9 carbs! I order the Syrup on-line from josephslitecookies.com  They have a great selection of sugarless products check it out sometime. Love starting the day off with a great Breakfast!
