Today’s Menu: Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Foggy morning out there today. So for Breakfast I made a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it started of foggy and from there a cloudy and dreary day, a high in the 40’s with rain on and off with a little sleet. My thumb I burnt is a mess, burned it pretty good. I have to change the dressing twice a day. Hope it heals up good but I think it will be scared up. Stayed home all day and caught up on some house cleaning. Also did a load of laundry for Mom. Everything done, spent the rest of the day watching the NCAA March Madness Basketball. For Dinner tonight I’m having Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.



It’s a Comfort Food Dinner tonight, Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich! I’m using one of my favorite new foods, Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix. I really love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far. So delicious and easy to prepare. I had made a package of this for Lunch the day before, this is how I got my thumb burned. I had a container of it in the fridge so I just reheated it on medium heat in a small sauce pan.




To prepare a package of it; In a 2 quart sauce pan bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisk in the soup mix. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste and serve! Perfect seasoning, thickened up just right, plenty of Diced Potato and a fantastic Potato flavor. The package makes 8 cups and very easy to prepare. I have several in my pantry now, trying a Minestrone Soup next.




To make my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. A perfect meal for a dreary day! For Dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Diced Mangos.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Creamy Cheddar Pasta



To start this snowy morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and made the daily morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It started snowing late yesterday but the ground was to warm and it didn’t stick, at first. Eventually though it started sticking. We’ve had snow flurries on and off most of the day. It was 16 degrees this morning and we had a high of only 31. What happened to our early Spring! The cold looks as though it’s killed all the early flowers that had come out. The cold is here for a few days they say. Sure be glad for warmer weather! Dad is doing better. They thought he had shingles but it turned out to be a rash from an anti biotic they had given him. Not sure when he’s coming home. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Haddock w/ Creamy Cheddar Pasta.


I had purchased 2 Haddock fillets from Kroger a while back. I had rinsed both fillets and cut into smaller pieces. I ended up with 3 bags, I had one the day I purchased them and froze the other 2. So I grabbed one of the plastic bags and laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. So to prepare them I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.



To go with my Seasoned Haddock I prepared a new dish, Bear Creek Creamy Cheddar Pasta Mix. I had tried the Bear Creek Potato Soup Mix and Creamy Chicken Pasta, which both were excellent! To prepare it; Grabbed a 2 quart sauce pan, added 4 cups of water. Heated to a rolling boil. Whisked in the Pasta and Sauce Mix. Brought the mixture back to a rolling boil. Reduced the heat to a medium boil and cooked for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.




Removed from the heat and let it sit for 8 minutes. The Sauce thickened up beautifully as it cooled. Another excellent product from Bear Creek. Really enjoy these all these Products! I seasoned the Pasta with just a little sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. The Pasta and Haddock make a perfect pairing! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.
