Today’s Menu: Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, topped them with some cooked diced Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, and finally a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. Also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love this Breakfast Skillet! After Breakfast I went to see Dad at the rehab center. He seems to be doing good. Hopefully he’ll be home in a couple of weeks. Back home, I got the cart out and finished up some yard work and took a spin around the neighborhood. It’s a little hotter and the humidity was a tad worse. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

I used the healthy and delicious Jennie O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages. I had bought a package at Meijer the other day. I pan fried them, using Pam w/ Olive Oil Cooking Spray and no oil needed. Heated the pan on medium and cooked a total of about 17 minutes, turning the Sausages occasionally. They fry up plump and brown, as always Jennie – O Products always have that fresh taste to them. The Sausages have 160 calories and 0 carbs per Sausage.

 

 

 

 

I served it on a new Aunt Millie’s Hot Dog Bun, the Aunt Millie’s New England Style Potato Hot Dog Bun. It’s a bit higher in calories and carbs than the Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calories Buns I normally buy, but these looked so good I had to try them! The buns are a top loaded bun. Plus they have a Potato flavor to them. After trying them I really like them, jut wish they were a bit lower in calories and carbs. I topped Sausage with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Love these Sweet Italian Sausages, thank you Jennie – O! I made 2 of them having one tonight and the other for Lunch tomorrow.

 

 

Then for a side I baked some 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 Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Hamburger Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Happy 4th of July to everyone out there! Please, as always, remember those out there serving our Country so we can enjoy Holidays like this. For Breakfast this morning I had purchased a package of Smithfield Anytime Favorites Sliced Ham. Just heat up for 1 minute in a skillet and it’s ready! I then toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped the Ham with a slice of Sargento Reduced Calorie Swiss Cheese and served it on the Muffin. Made a delicious Breakfast sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Hot and muggy with a passing shower outside today. Not a lot going on today, very laid back. I cleaned up around the house and then spent the afternoon watching a couple of movies I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s Sliders again! I prepared Hamburger Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

It’s 2 days of Sliders for me. yesterday it was Crabcake Sliders and tonight Beef Sliders. Well it doesn’t happen often, rarely ever, but I’m having Beef tonight! I was at Kroger yesterday and I came across a bag of Kroger Ground Beef Sliders – Mini Beef Burgers. They looked good and I had just bought a package of Pepperidge Whole Wheat Slider Buns so I had a perfect pairing. I switched from Beef to Bison, or Buffalo, several years ago when i was diagnosed with Diabetes 2. Healthier, leaner, less fat, and tastes better so the switch was easy. But these looked good and Mom and Dad would really like them! They come frozen and there are 16 2 oz. Slider Patties per package.

 

 

To prepare them; You prepare them frozen, no need to thaw. Just place the Patties in a preheated skillet, preheated on medium heat. Heat on the first side until the juices start to flow. Flip it over and cook till done with about 1 minute of frying time left I added a 1/2 slice of Arla Gouda Cheese. First time trying the Arla Gouda Cheese also. Very good Gouda, smooth, nice flavor, and only 80 calories per slice. The Burgers fry up perfect, I seasoned them with some Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I served them on Pepperidge Wheat Slider Buns. I still prefer my Buffalo but these were pretty good!

 

 

And as usual when having any type of Burger you must have fries! I I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries, I used Ore Ida yesterday. 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.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this beautiful Sunday Morning I reheated 3 of the Potato Pancakes leftover from last night’s Dinner, love these things! I also toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another gorgeous day out there again. Sunny and 75 degrees, and no humidity. It’s unusual for this area to have weather like this at the end of June. Usually the high humidity has set in for the Summer and high temps. After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad at McDonald’s for them. Did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning, not a lot going on after that. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish.

 

Then for a side dish I prepared I had some Alexia Potato Puffs, that I had leftover in the freezer. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Excellent Potato Product, browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream Cup that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping.

Today’s Menu: Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg Suunyside Up, reheated the remaining piece of pork Chop, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then after Lunch I took Mom’s car to have the oil changed and then took it to washed and the inside vacuumed. Another hot and humid day out. Looks pretty good for an older car. For Dinner tonight its a Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a 1 lb. package of Ground Meijer Chicken while there the other day. I had no t had a ground Chicken Burger in a long time and it just sounded good! To make the Burger I’ll need; Pam Cooking Spray, Extra Light Olive Oil, Ground Chicken, Dried Sage (just a pinch), Sea salt, Ground Black Pepper, Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing, Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Buns.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I was able to make 4 Burgers out the package of Ground Chicken. I added just a pinch of Rubbed Dried Sage to the Chicken and formed it into 4 Chicken Patties. I got a 10″ skillet that I lightly coated with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil also. I then preheated the skillet on medium heat. I then fried the patties, 2 at a time. I fried them until the juices ran clear and I had an internal temperature reading of 165 degrees. Flipping the Burgers one time. After flipping it, with about 1 minute of frying time left I added my Cheese on it. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Bun and topped the Burger with Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing. Love the Chicken Burger! Came moist and delicious, nice flavor to it and the Sharp Cheddar and Thousand Island Dressing was perfect with it.

 

To go with my Burger, what else but Baked Fries. I baked some 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.

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and all of the Dads out there! To start our Sunday morning off I prepared a Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast for everyone. 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. Topped it off with a Sunnyside Up Egg and also made that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Just love this Skillet Breakfast! Outside it’s a rainy and humid Fater’s Day out there! A bit cooler at 83 degrees but heavy rains at times. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry and that was about it for the day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded.

For Father’s day I went to Outback Steakhouse for Mom and Dad and brought back Dinner for them.

For the Bacon I’m using the Kroger Simple Truth Turkey Bacon. It fries or bakes up real easy and has excellent taste.I was going to use more of the Wild Boar Bacon but forgot to lay the package out to thaw from the freezer.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Turkey Burger, I’m using a medium size skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium. When the skillet was ready I added the Turkey Burger. I fried it about 6 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I topped it with a slice of Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with a bout 1 minute of cooking time left. I served the Burgers on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. Topped the Turkey Burger with some Heinz 57 Sauce and the Turkey Bacon. The Burgers fried up great and the toppings all worked well together.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my day off I had a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another rainy day outside again. We have several areas that had flooding from yesterday’s rains. So more on top of that, 85 degrees and muggy. So I stayed in and cleaned the house today. Started by getting a couple of loads of laundry started. Then dusted and vacuumed. Next into the kitchen and laundry room. Cleaned the oven, self-cleaning oven. Then dusted and cleaned around the washer and dryer. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger yesterday and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender. A special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier!

 

 

 

Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. This is a Sandwich! I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch the next few days.

 

 

To go with the Pulled Pork Sandwiches I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I 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 Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

 

For Breakfast I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 82 degrees. More rain moving back in tonight. Along with that the pollen and spore count is high today, and I can tell it with my allergies! We had to have Dad at the optometrist at 9:00 this morning, he needs new glasses. Back home did a few things around the yard and shed and then took the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined the flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love having Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish.

 

I had some of the Alexia Potato Puffs leftover so I decided to have them as a side. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. They bake up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out and cleaned up around the deck and driveway areas. It’s another beautiful day out here, 82 degrees and mostly sunny! Headed out to Meijer, they had some items on sale I needed. Dad did good his first day back home. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

Time to satisfy that Buffalo Burger craving! I used the Wild Idea Buffalo Buffalo Burgers. I always 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, on medium heat, in Extra Light 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 then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. Lean and delicious, love these Buffalo Burgers!

 

 

 

Then for a side I baked some 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.

Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I tried a new Breakfast Sausage, al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patties. It’s a precooked Chicken Sausage Patty, it’s already seasoned also. I heated it up in a small skillet for a total of 6 minutes a side. Heated up quick and seasoned perfect. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I toasted. The Sausages are only 80 calories and 1 carb, I’ll have to keep these in stock! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well the rains have finally let up. We’ve had close to 2 inches of rain here the past 2 days. A cool morning out, 39 degrees this morning. After Breakfast i went up to the local Kroger and bought Mom a Mother’s Day Card and Roses for Mother’s Day. Back home did some laundry and cleaned the oven and cleaned the fridge out. After Lunch went over to see Dad for a while. He seems to be doing better so we’ll wait and see. For Dinner tonight a Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 


It just felt like a Bison Burger type of day! And a Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger sounded even better! I normally use Wild Idea Buffalo Patties for my Burgers but I’m trying a new one this time from SayersBrook Bison Ranch, 3 oz Bison Patties. I’ve tried a lot of the other SayersBrook items and all were great so I thought I would give their Bison Patties a try. So I’m using the SayersBrook Bison Patties, for the Bacon I’m using SayersBrook Wild Boar Uncured Bacon, Kraft Deli Sharp Cheddar, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 

 

I first prepared the Wild Boar Uncured Bacon. The slices were not as long as most Bacon Slices, perfect size to use on Burgers. It fried up as normal Bacon and tasted great! Wild Boar Bacon has a richer taste and is leaner than Pork. As usual when preparing Bacon, you have to use Bacon Math to calculate how many slices you need to prepare. If you need to use 3 slices you should fry at 5 slices, 3 to use and 2 to munch on while you’re preparing Dinner. Bacon Math!

 

 

 

Next I preheated the oven to 425 degrees to bake my fries and on to the Burger. I prepared it as I do the Wild Idea Buffalo Burger.I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. All 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. I then topped it with Wild Boar Bacon and then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. The Burger was excellent! It fried up great and its a very tasty Bison Burger.

 

 

The oven was preheated and I baked the 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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn. We really enjoy the Skinny Pop – Pop Corn!
