There’s a long standing argument, on whom credit is given, New Zealand or Australia, for creating this beautiful dessert. This dessert was named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, who …

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Buffalo Cheese Burger w Baked Fries 010
Had some Phantom Pains last night, but not to painful and they didn’t last long. For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and fried up some Thin-Sliced Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna. Which made up a delicious Breakfast Sandwich. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did some house cleaning today, vacuumed, dusted, etc. Then later I cleaned and straightened our big stand-up freezer, and it needed it! Mom’s a bit of pack rat. She buys a lot of stuff, freezes it, and then it’s forgotten about. So I finally got that taken care of and kicked back and watched the NASCAR Race. For dinner tonight, it’s time to satisfy my Burger Craving! I prepared a Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

Buffalo Cheese Burger w Baked Fries 001
When I have that Burger craving I use the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3 lb. Buffalo Burger. I have a couple of packages of them in the freezer so I grabbed one of the patties and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. After I flipped it, I topped it with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. For me its Burger Heaven! Lean and delicious, love these Burgers!

Then for a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I normally have Ore Ida Crinkle Fries but I wanted to change it up a bit so I’m going with the Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries again. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

This week’s Soup Special of the Day is – Creamy Buffalo and Mushroom Soup. Made using Wild Idea Premium Ground Buffalo, along with Cremini Mushrooms, Onions, Cream Cheese, and Spices! This one is sure to please. It comes from the Wild Idea Buffalo website. The Wild Idea site is loaded with delicious and healthy recipes and you can purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo cuts of meat.  http://wildideabuffalo.com/

 
Creamy Buffalo and Mushroom Soup

I am just going to come right out and tell you that this recipe is super delicious! It has an earthy, elegant flavor, and you will love the texture. (Serves 6 or 12 as a first course)

Ingredients:

5 – tablespoons butter
10 – ounces Cremini mushrooms, stemmed & chopped (reserve 3)
1 – tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped + 1 small sprig
3 to 5 – garlic cloves, chopped
½ – onion, chopped, about half a cup
3 – cups buffalo or organic beef broth
8 – ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 – pound package Wild Idea Premium Ground Buffalo
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon pepper
2 – tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Preparation:

1) In a heavy bottom stockpot over medium high heat, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter. Add chopped mushrooms, rosemary, onions, and garlic and sauté until tender, about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2) Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.Wild Idea

3) Add cream cheese cubes and transfer all of the ingredients into a blender.

4) Return pot to the stove over medium high heat and melt another tablespoon of butter. Crumble the ground buffalo in the hot pan breaking up further with a spatula end, stirring continuously until lightly browned. Do not overcook or allow the meat to become hard.

5) Add browned meat to the blender or food processor and puree until smooth. *For a silkier texture I process the soup again in my “smoothy”, or smaller blender.

6) Return soup to pot and re-warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

7) Take remaining 3 mushrooms and finely dice them. Mince one short sprig or head of a rosemary sprig. In a small sauté pan over medium high heat, melt remaining tablespoon of butter. Add mushrooms and sauté until dark brown, adding the rosemary right at the end. Drain onto a paper towel.

8) Add lemon right before serving. To serve, ladle desired portions into bowl and sprinkle with crunchy mushroom bits. Accompany with crusty bread. So good!

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Italian Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

 

Cumin Spiced Turkey Breast Tenderloin w Mashed Potatoes, Cut Ita 013

 

For Breakfast it was just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did a few things around the house and after lunch went to see a long time friend of mine that’s in town for a few days. Always great catching up with him! For Dinner tonight I prepared a new item, Jennie – O All Natural Turkey Breast Tenderloin. Tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Italian Beans, and Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

 

Cumin Spiced Turkey Breast Tenderloin w Mashed Potatoes, Cut Ita 002
Tonight I’m using the Jennie – O All Natural Turkey Breast Tenderloin that Jennie – O had sent to me the day before, and I couldn’t wait to try it! It’s a new item out by Jennie – O, 99% Fat Free and only 100 Calories per serving.

 

 

 

 

 

Cumin Spiced Turkey Breast Tenderloin w Mashed Potatoes, Cut Ita 005
To prepare it I’m using a Rub I normally use for Pork Tenderloin. It’s so good on the Pork I thought it would work with Turkey, like they say”Whats Good for the Pork is good for the Turkey” (sorry about that one). The Cumin Spice Rub consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. I’ll make this by increasing the recipe by 5x, that way I always have some handy.

 

 

 

Cumin Spiced Turkey Breast Tenderloin w Mashed Potatoes, Cut Ita 006
To prepare it I preheated oven to 350°F. Placed the tenderloins in a shallow baking pan. Baked until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of the meat reached 165°F, it was approximately 60-70 minutes. Removed from heat, cover and let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Hey Jennie – O, you got yourself a new winning product! Tender, moist, juicy, and flavorful, one delicious Turkey Breast Tenderloin! Baked up perfectly and Cumin Spice Rub works great with Turkey. This is a Mom and Dad approved item, both loved it! This is a new item and I haven’t seen it at local stores yet, I’ll everyone know when and what store I find it.

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003
To go with the Turkey Tenderloin I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I also heated up a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Then for dessert I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
