Today’s Menu: Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar on Whole Grain w/ Tossed Salad

 

 

It was a very long evening and morning for me. As I battled Phantom Pains throughout that time. I didn’t get much sleep if any overnight as the pains were very intense. Why can’t they come up with something to control them. But for now all I can do is grit my teeth and hope they pass. When they finally slowed and stopped I didn’t do a whole lot of anything today but try to catch up on some sleep and relaxation. For Dinner I wanted something that didn’t take a lot of effort to prepare so I went with a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar on Whole Grain with a Tossed Salad.

 

 

On our visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market I picked up a few Boar’s Head items from the Deli, Boar’s Head, Deluxe Roast Beef, Honey Smoked Turkey, Sweet Sliced Ham, and Vermont Cheddar Cheese (Yellow). I’m using the Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar. I served it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, topped it with some French’s Yellow Mustard. I also had a small side of Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips.

 

 

 

I also had a Tossed Salad. I had a bag of Dole Greener Selection Salad. For the Salad Dressing I used Kraft Fat Free Classic Catalina Dressing along with a sprinkle of Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Pieces. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast

 

 


For Breakfast this Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. At 10:30 this morning we had to be over at the office of where Dad is staying. We are applying for Medicade for Dad. They seem to want everything you have but your first-born children. Hope we get it worked out, very stressful! Rain showers this morning and very windy. There’s a lot of flooding all over the area, even had a Tornado watch last night. Very windy and a of 40 today, but the wind chill made it about 30. For Dinner tonight I wanted some Breakfast! So Breakfast it is, I prepared Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast.

 

 

Breakfast for Dinner sounded perfect for Dinner tonight! I sliced up the rest of our Ham off the bone, I had prepared the Ham the day before. The Ham is so moist and delicious! We used Cook’s Bone In Ham. To prepare it I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I then took a few slices of it and reheated it i tin the skillet for about 5 minutes. I love this Ham! It has such good flavor, perfect for Breakfast or Dinner.

 

 

 

Next I used the same skillet and I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg. Fried it on medium low, seasoned with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

 

 

 

As the the Ham and Egg were cooking, in another skillet I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I love these, I could have them every day! Again I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. I fried these for 14 minutes. When done I sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped them with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Had a glass of 2% White Milk to drink. I had one hearty Comfort Food Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Today’s Menu: Ham Sandwich w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole

 

 

For Breakfast this I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Love that Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well Winter just will not go away! Overnight a snow system moved through and gave us over an inch of snow. It melted pretty quick though as we had a of 52 degrees for the day. After Breakfast I went up to Kroger, they had Hams on sale and Bought a Cook’s Semi-Boneless Ham. It was close to 7 3/4 lbs. and got it for $6.21. We usually have a Ham for Easter but went to Easter Dinner at a Family member. I love a good baked Ham and to me the leftovers are the best part! Ham Sandwiches like tonight and fried Ham for Breakfast. Dad is doing a lot better today, he’s getting to know everyone and adjusting to it. We sure do miss him here at home! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ham Sandwich w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole.

 

We almost always use Cook’s Ham when we bake a Ham. So with the Ham I baked earlier, we made some into Ham Sandwiches. Just took a few slices and serving it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is so delicious and moist. And as always with Cook’s Ham, perfect seasoning! We’ll have quite a few Breakfasts and Lunches out of this.

 

 

 

 

I served the Ham on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I was going to add Mayo or Mustard but I just wanted the taste of that delicious Ham!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Ham I prepared a box of Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole. Like the other Idahoan dishes their a breeze to prepare and a delicious Potato Dish. And like the others this turned out fantastic! Very well seasoned, and you can taste that Applewood bacon flavor. I love my Potatoes! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

* Last minute add was Del Monte Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

Cook’s Hams

Semi-Boneless Hams
Classic Reduced Sodium Half (Serves: 15-20)
Half (Serves: 15-20)
Whole (Serves: 30-40)
Semi-Boneless Hams
Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are now fully cooked! This means they may be eaten cold or heated. The ham only needs to be heated through if serving warm.
With fewer bones and less fat, Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are a great value. With two of the three bones removed, carving and serving are much easier. With only the center bone remaining, your family can still can enjoy the great taste and flavor that only a Cook’s bone-in ham can offer, plus the added value of more lean meat and the convenience of less bone.

Ingredients
CURED WITH: Water, Dextrose, Salt, Sodium Phosphate, Sodium Nitrite.

Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole
The saying is “everything is better with bacon” and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we incorporated Applewood Smoked Bacon in with our rich cheesy sauce for this homestyle casserole that is sure to become a family favorite.

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: Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Scrambled a couple of Eggs, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast sausage Links, and made my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 49 degrees today. So the few inches of snow we got yesterday is quickly melting. Hospice came at 11:00 today and took Dad over to a rehab center here in West Chester for 5 days. Hospice suggested we do this so as to give us a bit of break. We are currently looking for a center for Dad too stay in. His Dementia and overall health has become so bad we can no longer keep him here. It breaks are heart but it’s for the best. For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys.

 


I wasn’t in the mood to put a lot of effort in to cooking a big meal. Mom said Cheese Coneys sounded good so that’s what I prepared for us. I love my Cheese Coneys! Living here all my life here in the Cincinnati area you are raised on Cheese Coneys, Chili Spaghetti, and such. From all the classic Chili Parlors; Skyline Chili, Gold Star Chili, Camp Washington Chili, just to name a few. But having Diabetes 2 I have to watch my carbs and calories so I make mine a little healthier but keeping the incredible flavors.

 

I used Ball Park Smoked White Meat Turkey Franks, an excellent Turkey Frank! I boiled them, it took about 5 minutes and they were ready, plump, and delicious. I heated the can of Skyline Chili for my topping. I served everything on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Buns. Put the Frank in the Bun then topped it with French’s Yellow Mustard, the Chili, and Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese. Had a small side of some Skyline Oyster Crackers with a few drops of Frank’s Hot Sauce on them, which is a common way to have them here in the Cincinnati area. We love our Chili, Chili Dogs, Chili Spaghetti, and Hot Sauce here in the Cincinnati area. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

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.

 

 

 

 

Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese

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

 

 

To start my Sunday morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried a couple of slices of al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a dreary Sunday Morning. Outside it’s a mix of light rain and snow and like this most of the day. We need some sunshine above freezing weather! Gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. After Lunch I laid back down for a while. I’ve had a Sinus Headache since yesterday. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Buff 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. If you’ve never tried this Bacon you need to give it a try. 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 Dinner tonight I’m having a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger but not my normal 1/3 lb. Buffalo Burger. I’m having the Wild Idea Buffalo Buff Burgers. I’ve these several times but usually I have them for Lunch. The Buff Burger is a 6 oz., seasoned, handcrafted Buffalo Burger.

 

 

 

 

 

Next I sprayed another skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium low heat. I then fried it 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. I love buffalo or Bison if you prefer.

 

 

For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I tried a sample of it at Kroger and really loved the taste. First time trying it. It melted perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. I’ll have to buy some more of this.

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Burger I baked some 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, while watching the Super Bowl, a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

 

To start the Sunday morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Next I prepared some Ekrich Smoked Turkey Sausage Links. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger and picked up a few items then went to Burger King and picked up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. They normally have McDonald’s but I switched it up a bit and picked up the Burger King Breakfast items. And they really enjoyed them! Cloudy out all day and a high of 42 degrees. Rain Showers moved in the afternoon. Cleaned the house and kept an eye on Dad while Mom was at Church. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had used the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs leftover from yesterday meal. I’ve been using the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs for quite a few years now. So thank goodness Kroger finally started carrying them again! The Meatballs are good size, always fresh, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. Plus they’re a perfect size for Hoagie or Hot Dog Buns, I used Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns.

 

 

For my Pasta Sauce I had used the LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and mine also, it’s got a perfect combination of a robust sauce with a hint of sweetness to it. To prepare it I took a medium size sauce pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Emptied the can of Sauce in the pan and turned the heat on medium. Then I added my Turkey Meatballs and covered the pan and let it simmer until both the Sauce and Meatballs were heated through.

 

 

 

I’m using Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese as a topping for the Sub. You can use Hoagie Buns but to save on calories and carbs I usually just use Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. To assemble; open the Bun up, put the Meatballs and Sauce in the Bun , top it with a few shakes of McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and top it with the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Love these Meatball Sandwiches! The Larosa’s Sauce just seems to bring the Sandwich together! Sauce is incredible, Turkey Meatballs flavorful and meaty, and the Mozzarella is perfect with Pasta and Sauces.

 

For 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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Breakfast for Dinner sounded perfect for Dinner tonight! I sliced up the rest of our Thanksgiving Ham off the bone. The Ham, as it is most years, was moist and delicious! We used Cook’s Bone In Ham. To prepare it I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I then took a few slices of it and reheated it i tin the skillet for about 5 minutes. I love this Ham! It has such good flavor, perfect for Breakfast or Dinner.

 

 

 

Next I used the same skillet and I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg. Fried it on medium low, seasoned with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

As the the Ham and Egg were cooking, in another skillet I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I love these, I could have them every day! Again I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. i fried these for 14 minutes. When done I sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped them with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Had a glass of 2% White Milk to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Cheerios’s Cereal and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I had to get the hedge clippers and leaf blower out. I had to trim back Mom’s Rose Bushes they growing up over on to the wooden deck out front. Then used the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. 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 Aunt Millie’s New England Style Potato Hot Dog Bun. Second time we’ve used these Buns. They’re a bit higher in calories and carbs than the Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calories Buns I normally buy. The buns are a top loaded bun. Plus they have a Potato flavor to them. I topped the 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 topped with Cool Whip Free.
