Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Salmon Patties w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese

 
It was a full day of leftovers for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner! For Breakfast I reheated some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, reheated 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Mom and Dad went on to Church this morning so I gave the house a good cleaning today. Ran the vacuum, dusted, and did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Outside, what a beautiful day! Sunny and in the 60’s! But they say cooler weather and possible light snow moving back in by mid-week. Went outside and cleaned and swept the deck and driveway. Even got the 4 wheel cart out for a spin this afternoon. Beautiful day out. For Lunch I reheated a Ball Park Turkey Frank and served on a Flax Seed Pita Bread. Then for dinner it was leftover Salmon Patties w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese.

I reheated the leftover Salmon Patties w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese that I had prepared the day before. Reheated both items in the microwave. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink with dinner. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar. The original post for the Salmon and Pasta is below.

Golden Brown

I’m using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Egg Beater’s (1/4 cup), a couple of shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce, Dried Parsley, and Kroger Low Fat Saltine Crackers. To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved a total of 20 calories and 2 full grams of fat. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. I’m starting to have to have these more often, they came out golden brown and delicious!

For the Pasta I used Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. I don’t use a lot of Mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. To prepare it; Boil 6 cups water. Stir in shell pasta. Cook 8-10 min., Stirring occasionally. Drain pasta, don’t rinse. Return it to pan. Add cheese sauce; stir. And you have some creamy and cheesy Mac and Cheese! It’s just a flat out Pasta and Cheese Comfort Food Heaven! Excellent tasting Rotini Pasta and with the Cheese, perfect.
