For Breakfast on this last day of February I prepared Scrambled Eggs and toasted a 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Lunch headed over to spend some time with Dad at the rehab center. He’s doing good but has to work on his leg strength. For Dinner tonight its Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

The family is hooked on these Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread Sandwiches. To prepare the Sandwich I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Kroger Bakery Sour Dough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees.

 

While the griddle was heating I prepared the Sandwich. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with grilled-ham-and-swiss-on-sour-dough-bread-w-baked-fries-004some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! What a Sandwich, Sour Dough Bread just makes everything that much better!

 

 

Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries 003

I had already preheated the oven, so as the griddle was heating I baked my fries, I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 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 Weight watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

French Onion Beef Tenderloin for Two

Pacific Sole with Oranges and Pecans
Dover sole meant an overcooked fillet swimming in butter, dotted with tasteless dried herbs and soaked in too much lemon juice. But sole deserves a comeback: it can become a satisfying, sophisticated, one-skillet dinner with very little effort. The recipe can easily be doubled……
