Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made Breakfast for everyone. Mom and Dad usually have McDonald’s but this morning I’m making Breakfast. I prepared a package of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausages, made Scrambled Eggs for everyone, made some packages of Instant Grits, toasted 2 types of Bread – Raisin Bread and Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread. Mom and Dad wanted the Raisin Bread, not a big fan of it myself. I also made Coffee for the Folks and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for myself. Outside it’s in the 90’s, very humid, and rain on and off. So between the rain and humidity there wasn’t a lot going on outside. So I did some cleaning inside, vacuum and dusted. Then took the brushes out of the vacuum and cleaned them and washed out the vacuum filter. Moved on to the Pantry and straightened it up. Full day today. For Dinner tonight its Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans.

 

I used Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat, not bad at all for Brats. To prepare them; Just add the Brats to a large skillet and add water, until the Brats are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately turn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get a nice crispy finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Kroger Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I also had some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips. Then for dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar. Love these, only 80 calories and 12 net carbs per bar!

 

Then for a side I prepared some Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar. Not sure if I’ve had these before or not, but they sure are good! As all Bush Beans are. I just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated them until they started to simmer. For Dessert/Snack later I’m having a 100 Calorie Mini Bag Jolly Time Pop Corn. I hadn’t been able to find this anywhere until I found some at Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday.

Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Mettwursts

 

 

To start the 28th day of June off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had to have dad at the Doctor’s office at 10:00 this morning for a checkup. The Doc said he was doing okay nothing new. But he did tell us that lungs are getting weaker every visit though. Not much anyone can do. Outside it’s a bit more humid, windier, and 83 degrees. I went to Kroger for Mom to pick up a prescription for Dad and stopped by the bank for her. A pretty simple Dinner tonight, I prepared a couple of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Mettwursts.

 

 

I had purchased a couple of packages of the Bluegrass Lean Mettwurst while at Jungle Jim’s Market. I had kept one package out that I had been having for Lunch and froze the remaining package. Which I had laid in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I used a medium size skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added the Metts. I then added water to the pan, just enough water to cover about a 1/4 of Mett. Turned the heat on medium and covered the pan. I turned the Metts frequently to get a nice even cook on them. When the water had boiled down I cooked them an extra 3 minutes to brown them. They turned out fantastic, nice and meaty! I served them on Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. A couple of Metts was plenty for Dinner tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Mettwurst on Bun w/ Spaetzle with Sage

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I a alfresco Apple Maple Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty. I found more of these at Meijer the other day and picked a few of the packages up. I love making these and making them into a Breakfast Sandwich. I fried the patty for 8 minutes and as that was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with my Breakfast Sandwich I had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny with a passing shower, 77 degrees. After I had Breakfast I went up to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Later in the day I went to Home Depot, I’m still getting estimates and picking out back splash tiles for the kitchen. Back home did a few things around the house. For dinner tonight a little German Cuisine flair tonight, Mettwurst on Bun w/ Spaetzle with Sage.

 

 

 

I came across some Bluegrass Lean Mettwurst while at Jungle Jim’s Market and grabbed a couple of packages of it. I froze one package and kept the other one in the fridge, and having them for Dinner tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I used a medium size skillet and added the Metts. I then added water to the pan, just enough water to cover about a 1/4 of Mett. Turned the heat on medium and covered the pan. I turned the Metts frequently to get a nice even cook on them. When the water had boiled down I cooked them an extra 3 minutes to brown them. They turned out fantastic, nice and meaty! I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

 

 

To go with my Mett I prepared some Maggi Spaetzle (Authentic German Dumplings). I make these from time to time, really enjoy them. To prepare them I followed the package cooking instructions; brought 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Stirred in the Spaetzle; boiled uncovered, for about 27 minutes (until tender). Drained it and set aside. Then melted 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter over medium heat. Added 2 tablespoons of Dried Rubbed Sage and 1 Clove Minced Garlic. Added that to the finished Spaetzle and stirred until well mixed. Seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Pepper and served. Comes out so flavorful and Dumplings are so tender. Makes one excellent side dish. Something a little different, a very good dinner tonight!

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 headed to Meijer for a few items, stopped and got gas, then stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. High of 75 degrees with showers on and off. Made Dad a couple of small loaves of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread, his favorite. Then later in the afternoon took them over to him. It looks as though he’s got a couple more weeks of rehab before possibly coming home. Back home did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Baked Vegetarian Beans.

 

 

It’s Brats and Beans for Dinner! Last time I was at Jungle Jim’s I picked up a couple of packages of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Bratwurst.

Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

Then for a side I prepared some Bush’s Reduced Sodium Vegetarian Baked Beans. Love these Beans, great flavor! Plus they are only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving.

Another product I love having every day. Big change in the weather out there today! Mostly sunny, a high of 79 degrees, and the big thing low or no humidity! About time.

While at Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday I picked up a couple of packages of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Bratwurst.

Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Ruffle's Chips 009
It was one of those long and sleepless nights for me as I battled with a very bad case of Phantom Pains. They started last night around 8:00 and continued through most of today. So little to no sleep last night. About 4:30 this morning I had just managed to doze off and we got hit by one strong thunderstorm, and I mean strong! The thunder was so loud it was rattling pictures and the China in Mom’s China Cabinet. We had to well over 1-2 inches of rain. Then through the day we had rain on and off. Good day to stay in and get caught up on some sleep and relaxation. For dinner tonight I prepared a couple of Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Baked Ruffle’s Potato Chips

 

 

I used Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. To prepare them; Just add the Brats to a large skillet and add water, until the Brats are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately turn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get a nice crispy char and finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Also had a few slices of Jalapeno and a few Baked Ruffle’s Potato Chips. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ BBQ Baked Beans

 

Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w BBQ Baked Beans 001
Started my morning off with some Waffles. I used Bisquick Heart Healthy Mix to make them. I also had a couple of Eckrich Smoked Turkey Sausage Links and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cleaning today, vacuum, dusting, and such. Out in our backyard we have 2 different Rabbit nests, 1 nest is already gone it had about 6 or 7 babies in it. Mostly cloudy out had a high of 78 degrees, a bit cooler. Had the cart out later in the day. For dinner tonight Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ BBQ Baked Beans.

 

 

I used Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. To prepare them; Just add the Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w BBQ Baked Beans 004Brats to a large skillet and add water, until the Brats are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately turn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get a nice crispy char and finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Also had a few slices of Jalapeno and a few Ruffle’s Wavy Potato Chips.

 
For a side to go with my Brats I prepared some BBQ Baked Beans. I made a very small amount, I used a 2 Serving Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w BBQ Baked Beans 002can of Bush’s Original Baked Beans Seasoned with Bacon and Brown Sugar. Just the right size if cooking for one. I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. I added 3 tablespoons of Jack Daniels Honey Smoked BBQ Sauce to it, stirred until well mixed. Simmered for about 8 minutes and it’s done. The BBQ Sauce gives it a nice Smokey Flavor. Makes a nice little side, easily made and easy clean-up. Brats and Beans on a Saturday! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Love these Sugarless Pudding Cups, only 60 calories and 10 net carbs per cup.
