Today’s Menu: The Kitchen is closed, it’s Izzy’s Tonight!

 

 

Izzy's Lean
To start my morning off I prepared 1 medium size Egg (Scrambled), toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good Breakfast! Today was cleaning day. Dusting, vacuuming, swept off the deck and driveway area, and straightened up the shed. Later in the afternoon got the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight, “the kitchen is shutdown for the night” Dinner tonight is from Izzy’s, Izzy’s Lean Sandwich.

 
So tonight it’s Izzy’s. Izzy’s is home of some the best Corned Beef there is! All their Sandwiches are delicious and they own the market on the Corned Beef. I always get their Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich. The “Lean” version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier than most. The sandwich contains 170 calories and 16 carbs per serving (1/2 Sandwich) and 340 calories and 32 carbs for a Full Sandwich. I had the Full Sandwich along with a side of small Pasta Salad and Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Chips. To go along with it all I had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper, 0 calories and 0 carbs. Love putting a small bottle of Dr. Pepper in the freezer for a bit, just enough to get a layer of ice forming on it! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookie and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Izzy’s Lean
Like Izzy’s famous corned beef, but not all the fixings that come piled high on a Reuben? Craving that delicious lean- cut corned beef but counting calories? Looking for something light to hold you over in between holiday feasts? The Izzy’s Lean is your answer. It’s simple: Izzy’s renowned deli meat on toast, with a side of pasta salad. Add as many pickles and condiments as you like, or enjoy it plain. Yum!

It’s Nuts I tell you!

I have a great site to pass along to everyone, Nuts.com (https://nuts.com/) A fantastic site that features recipes, healthy eating and snacks tips, and an incredible selection of items to purchase online. All kinds of nuts, sunflower NUTS2 LOGOseeds, dried fruit, coffee, and teas. That’s just some of selection of healthy items that you’ll find here! Below is the history of the company, just to give you a little background on them. Starting with this post and every Thursday I’ll be featuring a recipe or product of Nuts.com ( https://nuts.com/ ) Eat and snack the HEALTHY way!

 
About us
In 1929, on the brink of the Depression, our father and grandfather “Poppy” Sol took a bold step. 22 years old, he had already worked full time for 10 years to support his family. Yet he was ambitious, and wanted to live the American Dream and make the lives of everyone around him better. So, donning his best of suits and an assured smile on his face, Sol walked away from the bank with a loan to start his own business, the Newark Nut Company. The rest is history. Let us tell you all about it:

OUR STORY
As mentioned above, the vision and determination of our Poppy Sol is what launched the Newark Nut Company.nuts ad

He began selling premium bulk nuts and dried fruit at the popular Mulberry Street open-air market. Sol quickly developed a reputation for providing the very finest and freshest nuts available. Sol believed in choosing only the highest quality super colossal nuts from the world’s best growers. He would then roast the nuts to perfection for a fresh, delicious flavor.

Now, 87 years later, my cousin David and I represent the third generation of our family business. Although much has changed, our basic philosophy has not, and we continue the family tradition of providing the same superb quality and service as in the past. Our customers, some in their 80’s and 90’s, still rave about the splendid quality and luscious flavor of the products that have made our company famous throughout the years. A visit to the shop today will make your mouth water as the aroma of the freshly roasted peanuts and corn kernels popping tempt your taste buds. We love when customers come to our new location in Cranford to pick up orders and say hello. However, please keep in mind it is a warehouse location and you are unable to walk around and shop.

In 1999, we launched NutsOnline to bring our savory selection of more than 2,000 items right to your door. By 2011, NutsOnline became pretty well known across North America for great quality and service across a growing product offering. Our slogan, “We’re more than just nuts,” continued to ring true.

That being said, I can’t tell you the number of times I would make new friends and, before saying goodbye, they would say, “I’m excited to check you guys out. Nuts.com, right?” Even Rachael Ray made this mistake on her show! So, in January 2012, we decided to officially change our nuts to Nuts.com. Despite the name change, we are still the same – the same family, the same values, the same quality, and the same level of care. We buy directly from growers, so whether you want one pound or 1,000 pounds, we will gladly accommodate any of your needs, including wholesale. You can order online through our secure server, over the phone, or via fax or e-mail.

https://nuts.com/

 

 

We roast our nuts and pop our corn the same day we ship so they reach you deliciously fresh as if you bought them NUTS1from our shop. We do it the “Old Fashioned Way.” One taste and you will know the difference. My grandfather began building our reputation back in 1929 and, 87 years later, we continue to make sure that every product we sell is second to none. That’s a promise. 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to contact us!

Thanks and enjoy!
– Jeffrey (third generation) along with my dad, Kenny, my uncle, Sandy, my cousin, David, and the rest of the Nuts.com Family!!

Today’s Menu: Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

Jennie -O Recipe of the Week - Mouth-Watering Turkey Patty Melts 004
For Breakfast I had one of my favorites, Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Just love this skillet meal! And Dad is finally back home and it’s one of his favorite meals also! We had bought Dad an Easy Chair that lifts up to help you get of the chair, and he loves it. Did some things around the house, not a lot to do today. For Dinner I prepared Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I used our favorite, the frozen Kroger Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp So it’s Shrimp tonight. Easy to prepare I just Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w Mac and Cheese 006preheated the oven to 450 degrees. Grabbed a large baking sheet, lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I baked the Shrimp for 12 minutes, turning them over after 6 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve. These were fantastic, really nice size Shrimp and lightly breaded to give a nice crunch but not too much to make it mushy as some breading. Great product to have in the freezer. Served them with Heinz Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Louisiana Remoulade Sauce for dipping.

 

 

Seasoned Haddock w Mac and Cheese 001
For the Mac and Cheese I used the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese – Triple Cheese again. Used this for the first time last week and using it again. It comes in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.
