Today’s Menu: Grilled Turkey Franks and Bratwurst w/ Boiled Corn on the Cob and Honey Smokehouse BBQ Chili Beans


Solved a neighborhood mystery last night around 8:00 pm. I was in the kitchen fixing a cup of Green Tea when something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye, a Doe Deer! We have a small strip of woods that runs parallel with the backs of all the homes along our street so apparently the Deer had been coming out and feasting on everyone’s gardens and flowers! Something had eaten my Mom’s flowers and a few of her cucumber plants that she had growing, and the neighbors had said something had been eating various plants and flowers of theirs. Mystery solved! As I watched her she headed straight for our next door neighbors petunias. As I opened the door she turned back into the woods. She was a good size Doe. That’s the first one spotted in our part of neighborhood. For dinner I was able to fire the grill up in between showers. I prepared Grilled Turkey Franks and Bratwurst w/ Boiled Corn on the Cob and Honey Smokehouse BBQ Chili Beans.


As usual I used Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, 45 calories and 5 carbs per Frank. Their Turkey, low cal, low carb, and taste Brats, deviled eggs, corn on the cob 002great! They grill up nice too. I also grilled up some Bratwurst, Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. Served them all on Healthy Life Whole Grain Buns, 70 calories and 18 carbs per bun.


I also boiled some Mini Corn Ears. I used Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. They come frozen and all you do is boil them in water for about 12 minutes. Their 50 calories and 9 calories per mini ear. My Mom made some Deviled Eggs, which are the best I ever had! Plus Mom wanted some BBQ Beans so I prepared some Honey Smokehouse BBQ Chili Beans. I used Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 teaspoon Gound Mustard, and a couple of pinches of Splenda Brown Sugar. Mix it all together and heat it in a medium sauce pan. We had all the ingredients for a picnic, in this case an indoor picnic as it started raining just as the Brats and Hot Dogs were ready. For dessert later tonight a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with a scoop of Breyer’s carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
