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; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start the morning of I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. After Breakfast I had to go to Kroger to pick for a couple of items for Mom. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad.For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries. We ended up with about 2 or 3 inches of snow. But most of it already melted, 44 degrees for a high today! Hospice is going to help us with Dad from here on out. So we’ll be looking for an assisted living center with their help. Sure hate that we have to do it but it’s for his safety also as has fallen 5 times the last month. So it’s for the best. For Dinner tonight its a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

To prepare the Sandwiches I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

 

 


While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

 

 


I had already preheated the oven, so as the Sandwich was finishing cooking I baked 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. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I had a Cheese Omelet. Made it with 2 medium size eggs, a splash of 2% milk, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold morning and day out there today. 22 degrees in the morning with one cold wind blowing. Had a high of 39 degrees, keep thinking Spring is Coming! Did some house cleaning today; ran the vacuum, dusted, and cleaned the kitchen. 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. 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 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 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. 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 a while back and really loved the taste. It melts perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. My Cheese of choice lately!

 

 

 

 

 


To go with my Buffalo 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 a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I then lightly fried a few slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham and got a slice of Boar’s Head Sliced Gouda Cheese and made my Sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside had some sunshine early and a high of 45 degrees. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Not much else going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce.

 

 

For my Dinner tonight I’m preparing Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce. For the Chicken I purchased a package of Katie’s Best Thin Cut Chicken Breasts then for Seasoning I’ll need; Flour, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Litehouse Poultry Seasoning, Buitoni Marinara Sauce, Boar’s Head Deli Sliced Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

To prepare everything I grabbed a Large Sauce Pan and a Skillet. Sprayed each with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I filled the Sauce Pan with 4 quarts Water and a couple of shakes of Morton’s Light Salt. Turned it on medium heat. I’ll be using this to cook my Pappardelle Pasta with.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Water was heating up I Seasoned the Chicken. I Seasoned it with the Sea Salt, Peppercorns, Poultry Seasoning, and then rolled the Chicken Breasts in Flour. Next I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the Skillet on medium high heat. When the Skillet was ready I fried the Chicken, turning it occasionally, 18-20 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature. Uncovered the last 2 minutes of cooking. I then topped each Chicken Breast with a slice of the Mozzarella Cheese. Then a spoonful of the Marinara Sauce and finished cooking. The Chicken came out great! Browned up good, moist, and excellent flavor with the added Mozzarella Cheese and Marinara Sauce. I put the lid on the Skillet and set it aside while the Pasta finished.

 


To prepare the Buitoni Roasted Garlic and Chive Pappardelle; As the Chicken was cooking I had already started boiling the Water. When it was a full boil I added the Pasta. Reduced the heat for a gentle boil of the Pasta, stirred frequently with a pair of tongs to separate the Pasta. Drained the Water and served.

 

 

 

 

To serve it I got a plate and made a bed of the Pasta and added a spoonful of the Marinara Sauce. Then topped that with one of the Mozzarella Chicken Breasts. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Everything turned out delicious! First time I had the Buitoni Roasted Garlic and Chive Pappardelle in quite a while. The Pappardelle and Chicken combo worked great, Excellent dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

Buitoni Roasted Garlic and Chive Pappardelle

Developed together with our chefs at Casa Buitoni, these wide cut, flat pasta ribbons are freshly made with no GMO ingredients and real roasted garlic and chives infused into the pasta dough. How about enjoying with a freshly made Buitoni sauce?

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: Baked Ham and Swiss Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I made my Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cooked the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a Fried Egg Sunnyside Up. And Breakfast is served! Had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A little better day out there than yesterday, high of 32 degrees and partly sunny. After Lunch I headed up to a local rehab center to see a friend of mine’s father. He had lost part of his foot to Diabetes and was having a rough time. It was good seeing everyone, just under better circumstances next time! For Dinner tonight, a Baked Ham and Swiss Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

For my Sub I’ll need; Aunt Millie’s Deli Style Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns, Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, 2 slices of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese, Kraft Light Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Kraft Fat Free Zesty Italian Dressing.

 

 

 

 

 


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! Sit the Bacon aside until ready to use.

 

 

To make the Sub I took the bottom half of the Bun and layered it the Mayo and a slice of Swiss Cheese. Then layered it with the Ham, 2 slices of Swiss Cheese, Chicken Bacon, a drizzle of the Italian Dressing, and topped it with the top half of the Sub Bun. Last, I drizzled more of the Italian Dressing over to of it.

 

 

 

 

I had already preheated the oven to 400 degrees, I then laid the Sub on a small baking sheet and baked it for about 12 minutes. Took it out and the Sub was a light golden brown and the Cheese was melted. Love these Baked Ham and Swiss Subs!

 

 

 

 

 


I also 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.

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.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham, Bacon, and Muenster Cheese Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I broke out a can of Turkey Spam. First time I used Turkey Spam in quite a while. It’s another one of those items I love but never seem to use often. I sliced off a couple of pieces to fry. I lightly sprayed a small skillet with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated the skillet on medium heat. Since they’re already fully cooked while still in the can, so you only need to brown them slightly. About two minutes on each side. As the Spam cooked I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I then used the same skillet I fried the Spam and fried 1 Egg Sunnyside Up. Put it all together and I had one delicious Turkey Spam and Fried Egg Breakfast Sandwich! I’ve been dealing with a Sinus Headache the last couple of days so being caught up on all the house work I rested and caught up on some shows I recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham, Bacon, and Muenster Cheese Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

When I went to Kroger the other day I picked up some Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham and Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese. Which means it’s time again for Grilled Sandwiches! So for tonight Grilled Sandwich I’m making a Grilled Ham, Bacon, and Muenster Cheese Sandwich! I’ll be using Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon, Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese, French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread. I’ll be preparing the Sandwich on my flat top griddle so I’ll also need some Blue Bonnet Light for the griddle to grill my Sandwich. That’s the ingredients for another delicious Grilled Sandwich! I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

I first prepared my Bacon. Again, I used Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon. It fries up great and love the flavor. But AS always when preparing Bacon you have to use Bacon Math to figure out how much Bacon to fry. I needed 3 slices so by my Bacon Math that totals out 6 slices! When making Bacon always multiply the amount by 2. Because you know you’ll always eat as much as you making! Laid the Bacon on a Paper Towel lined plate until needed.

 

 

 

 

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Aunt Millie’s Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo. Then layered the Boar’s Head Ham, the Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese, the Bacon, French’s Brown Spicy Mustard, and added the top slice of the Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! What a Sandwich, Boar’s Head Gone Wild! The Ham ,as always, was delicious and the Muenster Cheese with it’s melted creaminess made the sandwich. And of course Bacon on anything makes it better! The Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon has slowly become my favorite Bacon. Last week I used Boar’s Head Gouda Cheese and I switched it up using the Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese. Both melt beautifully on Sandwiches and have that rich creamy taste. I love either one!

 

As my Grill was heating I baked 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. Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Muenster cheese (Wiki)
Muenster (English: /ˈmʌnstər/ or /ˈmʊnstər/) or munster is a semi-soft cheese from the United States. It is thought to be an imitation of the Alsatian washed-rind Munster cheese, introduced by German immigrants. It is distinct from the processed dairy food Sweet Muenster Cheese. Its name is unrelated to the German city of Münster or the Irish province of Munster but to the French city of Munster in Alsace.

In contrast, “Munster”, or “Munster Gerome”, is made from unpasteurized cow’s milk in the Alsatian Vosges region and the Franche-Comté regions in France. The name Munster-Géromé is a protected A.O.C. and is strictly regulated in its production technique and source geography. The American “muenster” name distinguishes these cheeses.

Its taste varies from bland, like a white American cheese, to sharp, like a Monterey Jack cheese.

Muenster is pale in color and smooth in texture with an orange rind. The cheese is made from cow’s milk. The rind’s orange color is from annatto, a sweet and nutty seasoning used to add flavor and color to cheeses such as Cheddar, Colby, Red Leicester, and Mimolette. Muenster usually has a very mild flavor and smooth, soft texture. In some cases, when properly aged, it can develop a strong flavor with a pungent aroma. This cheese is commonly served as an appetizer. Because it melts well, it is also often used in dishes such as grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna melts, quesadillas, cheeseburgers, macaroni and cheese, and pizza.
