Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Started my morning off by toasting 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared a Sunnyside Up Egg, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 53 degrees and cloudy out today. Well Dad is in a rehab center here in West Chester until Friday. We love dad but we really needed the break, we are totally exhausted. We went up for a couple hours this afternoon to be with him. He’s doing real good but his health is quickly getting worse. After Breakfast I went Walmart for printing ink and copy paper. I stopped by the ATM, got gas, and picked up Breakfast for Mom before coming home. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet, on medium heat, that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I added a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar with about 1 minute of cook time left. Topped with the Chicken Bacon and served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. Just love a good Buffalo Burger!

 

 


For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I tried a sample of it at Kroger a while back and really loved the taste. It melts perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. Our Cheese of choice lately!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Burger I baked some of my favorite Fries – Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Bacon Double Cheddar Chicken Sandwich w/ Tater Tots

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of Cherrio’s along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed to the local Kroger up the road. Needed a few things for tonight’s Dinner. Usually when I go early to Kroger there’s hardly anyone there. But not today, I forgot it was Valentine’s Day! I was luck to find a handicap parking space, someone happened to be pulling out and they left their electric cart ou also. Kroger made a fortune on Cars, Flowers, and Candy sales! I got what I needed and headed back home. I’m glad I did go early though as it started pouring the rain as I got back home. Not much else going on today. I did put a Pork Loin Roast in the Crock Pot and let it cook on low for 7 hours for tomorrow’s Dinner. For my Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon Double Cheddar Chicken Sandwich w/ Tater Tots.

 

I purchased a package of Tyson Thin Cut Boneless Chicken Breasts at Kroger. I’ll also need the following to make the Dish; al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, Boar’s Head Deli Sliced Yellow Cheddar and White Cheddar Cheese, Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, Lettuce, and Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns.

 

 

 

 

I first fried the al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. This Bacon fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

 

Next I fried the Thin Cut Chicken Breasts. I’m using the Tyson Thin Cut Boneless Chicken Breasts. I got a large skillet that I sprayed with pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I then heated the skillet on medium heat. I seasoned the Chicken with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Pepper. Then rolled the Chicken in seasoned Flour. I had seasoned the Flour with Ground Smoked Paprika. With the skillet heated I added the Chicken. I fried it 2 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes and flipped it back again. Cooked it until the Chicken had an internal temperature of 165°. Cooked it a total of 15 minutes. With about 1 minute or so of cooking time left I topped the Chicken Breasts with a slice of Yellow and slice of White Cheddar Cheese. The Chicken came out perfect. Nice browning on the outside moist and juicy inside, and the Cheese melted beautifully!

 

As my Chicken was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Tater Tots.I used Ore Ida Golden Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup.

 

 

 

 

 


As the Tater Tots were finishing up I made my Sandwich. I got the Mini Sub Buns and took the bottom half and put Lettuce down, added the Chicken Breast, topped that with the Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce, the Bacon, and the top half of the Sub Bun. Quite a sandwich! I’ll have to start having this more often! With the Tater Tots it came out one delicious Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: The Kitchen is closed!……..LaRosa’s MEAT DELUXE Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I tries a new Bacon I cam across at Meijer yesterday, al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fried up good and was crispy after frying. It had good taste, I’ll have this more often! So for Breakfast I had the Chicken Bacon, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, 2 toasted slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another morning of below zero temperatures, minus 2 degrees. Mostly cloudy and 18 degrees for a high. It was good to get out for a while yesterday. I had a case of cabin fever! I’ll be glad when this weather breaks and we have days with sunshine and above freezing temperatures! So anyway I cleaned the, vacuum and dusted. Then later a load of laundry. For Dinner tonight I shut down the Kitchen and ordered a Pizza. Tonight it’s a LaRosa’s MEAT DELUXE Pizza.

 

It has been a very long time since I’ve had a Pizza from LaRosa’s Pizzeria! My Cousin’s son was selling LaRosa’s Gift Cards to earn money for their Football Team so I bought 1 for Mom and 1 for my neighbor next door. Mom and Dad wanted a Pizza so we’re using her LaRosa’s Gift Card. We ordered a LaRosa’s MEAT DELUXE Pizza.

 

 

 

 

We ordered a large Pizza. It comes with toppings of LaRosa’s Family Recipe Pizza Sauce and Provolone, topped with lots of Pepperoni, Sausage, Ground Beef, Capocolla Ham, and Bacon. We added Mushrooms and Olives to it also. The Pizza arrived right on time and piping hot! I forgot just how good the Pizza is at LaRosa’s. The Crust, LaRosa’s Sauce, and all the toppings make for one delicious Pizza and Meal! We really enjoyed this! More calories and carbs than I’m used to having but worth it. I make my Pizza, Lasagna, and Spaghetti Sauce all using the LaRosa’s Sauce. For Dessert later a Dole No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup. Well the Kitchen will reopen tomorrow, later!

A little LaRosa’s History……

LaRosa’s Pizzeria

LaRosa’s Pizzeria is a chain of pizzerias serving neighborhoods in Cincinnati, Greater Dayton, Central Ohio, Northern Kentucky, Southeast Indiana and central Tennessee. It was founded in 1954 by Donald “Buddy” LaRosa, along with partners Richard “Muzzie” Minella, Mike Soldano and Frank “Head” Serraino. Originally called Papa Gino’s, LaRosa later bought out his partners, and changed the name to LaRosa’s.

In addition to serving guests in its pizzerias, LaRosa’s is also the exclusive pizza served at the Kings Island and Coney Island amusement parks, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, Riverbend Music Center, Perfect North Slopes and the Great American Ball Park (home of the Cincinnati Reds).

Beginning with just one location on Boudinot Avenue in the Westwood area of Cincinnati, the family and franchise owners now operate more than 60 pizzerias, with total annual sales of over $130 million.

In 1991, LaRosa’s invested heavily in the implementation and marketing of a single number call distribution center for delivery and carry out orders. Its phone number is prominently featured in advertising. LaRosa’s is very popular in Greater Cincinnati, exceeding Domino’s, Donatos PizzaPizza Hut and Papa John’s in consumer reported purchase frequency.

LaRosa’s has always been active in the neighborhoods it serves, sponsoring local youth sports programs. On February 27, 2008, Michael Larosa became CEO of LaRosa’s, Inc., succeeding T.D. Hughes (CEO, LaRosa’s 1990-2007).

LaRosa’s signature pizza is a thin crust variety made with a distinctive thick, sweet sauce (a family recipe created by Buddy’s Aunt Dena) and topped with provolone cheese. Their menu also includes subs or “hoagys” with a variety of fillings and condiments, as well as calzones, salads, and pastas. LaRosa’s also offers its pasta sauce and other selections from its menu at

I really enjoyed a new Bacon I tried this morning, al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. I came across it at Meijer yesterday. I also found a Turkey Bacon that I’m going to try also. The Chicken Bacon looked to be real lean. It’s 30 calories and 1 carb per slice. It fries up great and crispy! Excellent flavor. I’ll be purchasing more of this, give it a try! – al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon
