Today’s Menu: Velveeta/Kraft Dinners Chili Cheese Mac Velveeta Cheesy Skillets w/ Whole Grain BreadVelveeta Turkey Chili Mac 003

 

 

 

I was up around 6:00 this morning and went out to get the paper and what a beautiful morning! I sat outside for a while, enjoying the peace and quiet of the early morning and read part of the morning paper. I don’t know if it’s a sign of an early Fall approaching or not but there sure are signs of it. As I sat outside I watched 3 different flocks of Geese in their V – Formation flying South, and I’ve been seeing a lot them here the past few days. For dinner I prepared the 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!

 

 

The Chessy Skillet Dinners 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 1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans, 2 cups of water, the seasoning and the pasta. Simmered for 10 – 12 minutes and added 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.Another one pan quick, easy, and delicious 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.

  1. A meal made easy.

    • They have several different kinds of these dinners.

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful and peaceful morning, Mark. I was astounded that the Velveeta boxed meals are actually quite good. I generally hate any boxed helper-meals, but these are really tasty. Glad you featured one on your blog!

    • I really enjoy them for a change of pace. Quick to prepare, delicious, and easy clean up!
