Today’s Menu: Roasted Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes, Mixed Chili Beans, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well another rainy day out again. Rain Showers and 59 degrees. Beats Cold and Snow, I’m just looking for something positive! We have had a lot rain. After Breakfast I started a couple of loads of laundry. Then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Roasted Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes, Mixed Chili Beans, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. We took Dad a plate of this for his Dinner at the Retirement Center

 


I had purchased the Jennie – O Applewood Smoke Flavor Turkey Breast Tenderloin from Meijer and had it in the freezer. Sat it in fridge to thaw overnight. Meijer is the only store that carries this and most of the other Jennie – O Turkey Products. The Turkey Tenderloin comes pre-seasoned and is 100 calories, 4 carbs, and 99% fat-free. Besides this beautiful Tenderloin all I’ll need to prepare it is some McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Blackberry Glaze, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon.

 

 

First I mixed my Blackberry Glaze and set it aside until ready to use. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post. To prepare the Tenderloin I’ll be baking it. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Next sprayed a shallow baking pan with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and add a tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil to it. Then place the Tenderloins in the baking pan. With about 10 minutes of cooking time left I Glazed on of the Tenderloins. Bake until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of the meat reaches 165°F, approximately 62 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover and let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.

 

 

Started slicing it and it’s so very tender and moist. It has a fantastic taste. The Applewood Smoke and combination of Spices it was marinated in was perfect! Good job Jennie- O. For the added Blackberry Glaze , it was perfect! It went with the Turkey perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I prepared a box of the Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes. As all the Idahoan Potato Products it’s easy to prepare and delicious! To prepare it; In 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, combine potatoes, contents of sauce pouch, 2 Tbsp butter, and 1 3/4 cups boiling water. Next add 3/4 cup milk and stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 425°F for 30 minutes. Sprinkle bacon on top of potatoes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve! I’ve had these a couple of times now and love them. Good Potato Dish to go with about anything.

 

 

For another side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a couple of times now and really like them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! Being new they are sort of hard to find. The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not feeling up to par today. I’ve been having continuing problems with Phantom Pains. It’s real unusual to have them on consecutive days, now 3 days in a row. I’ve really been uncomfortable the last few days. Hope it passes. Didn’t do a lot today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.
 

 

 

I had picked a Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chop at Meijer and had it in the freezer. I laid the Chop in the fridge overnight to thaw. They have some of the finest Pork Products you can buy at Meijer.

 

 

 

 

 

So to prepare my Chop I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 


For one side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a couple of times now and really like them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! Being new they are sort of hard to find. The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 


Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.

 

 

Bush’s Best Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce

TWO BEANS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

MIXED CHILI BEANS
For the first time ever, we’ve combined two chili favorites—kidney beans and pinto beans—to create BUSH’S® Mixed Chili Beans. They’re slow-simmered to perfection in a mild sauce flavored with garlic, onion, and spices. They’re a great addition that’ll bring a little variety and a lot of flavor to your next batch of chili.
There’s a lot to love about BUSH’S® Mixed Chili Beans—like the 7g of protein and fiber in every serving. And with no cholesterol or trans fat, there’s goodness in every bite!

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up some of the Baked Ham I had prepared yesterday. Then I also fried up an Egg Sunnyside Up, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 48 degrees and not quite as windy. The winds yesterday were strong and down right freezing! Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market, which I’m always ready to go to! The most incredible Market that I’ve ever seen or been to. The Deli, Meat, Produce, and Seafood Departments are 2nd to none. Love shopping there. Back home I put everything away. Then after Lunch we went up to spend the afternoon with Dad. So I’m making my 3 Bean Turkey Chili for Dinner! I prepared the Turkey and mixed the Beans last night. So this morning I already had the Crock Pot set up and ready along having the Turkey and Beans. So its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili and I made some Johnny Cakes for Dinner tonight.

 

To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it and it turns out delicious.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post.

 

 

 

Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. The Cornbread works perfect with Chili! I had a Diet Peach Snapple to go with my Dinner. I took some of the Johnny Cakes and 3 Bean Turkey Chili over to Dad at the rehab center, which he loved. For Dessrt tonight a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Wow, we have had so much rain , and more coming! Today we had a high of 60 and dry in the morning but rain moving in for the evening. Anyway after Breakfast I went grocery shopping at Meijer. It’s getting tougher and tougher to keep your grocery bill down, stuff just keeps going up! Really have to do some smart shopping and coupons. On the way back in I stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Dad seems to be adjusting to his new home at the assisted living center. Still wish he was home with us. But as they say “Life goes on”, and we will but its tough. For Dinner tonight, It’s a Taco Night! I prepared Turkey Tacos and a side of Refried Beans.

 

 

We had Tacos last week and they were so good, we’re having them again. When making Turkey Tacos I love using Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

 

 


For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom and Dad. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather out there. 24 degrees, snow flurries, and windy, which makes it feel a lot colder out there! Had a high of 40 degrees but it sure felt colder. Had a good nights sleep last night, no Phantom Pains! Did some house cleaning and that was about it. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Comfort Food tonight, Good Ole Beans and Weenies!

 

 

Been a while since I’ve prepared Sausage and Beans. So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 

I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

 

 

Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Applegate No Sugar Added Uncured Bacon, actually I fried 5 slices. Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. First time I’ve tried the Applegate Bacon. I normaly use Turkey or Chicken Bacon but this looked like an excellent Bacon. It fried up perfect and very good flavor to it. Plus it’s only 60 calories for 2 slices. As I said it fried up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

 


I love dishes that you can set and let them simmer, to me it seems to give food a much richer and deeper flavor. After a couple of hours I added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven and 1 skillet to clean. Also reheated the leftover Bakehouse Multigrain Bread. For Dessert later a So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice Cream Sandwich.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Filet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy out all day and a high of 36 degrees. After Breakfast I went to the Kroger up the road for a few things and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. We are starting to have a lot of trouble with Dad. We would like to keep him here at home but as his dementia gets worse the harder it is to take care of him. Just hoping and praying for the best. Later on did some house cleaning and straightened up the Pantry. For Dinner tonight its a Buffalo Terres Major Filet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

I prepared one of my favorite cuts of Steak, the Wild Idea Buffalo Terris Major Steak. I started by brushing it lightly with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I’m using a Cast iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat and also turned the oven on to 400 degrees. With the Steak Seasoned and Skillet heated i added the Steak to the Cast Iron. Cooked it about 1 1/2 minutes a side and then put into the oven to finish. That’s a reason I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven! I want to get it to 145 degree internal temperature. Then I pulled it out of the oven and let it set for 5 minutes, to finish cooking and let that delicious juice return to the Steak. Came out a perfect medium rare, moist and delicious!

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer until heated. Easy and delicious Potato Side Dish.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans. Just heat the Beans in a small sauce pan to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cooked until heated. Then I also baked a loaf of Bakehouse Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Terres Major Filet

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a another of the delicious SayersBrook Bison Ranch Filet Mignon! I love these they’re so tender and fry up so easy. So I had Steak and Egg. I had Bison Filet Mignon in the freezer, I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I fried it like last time. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. And like last time it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast Combo! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 


We had snow showers on and off all night, none of it stuck to the ground though. Another cool day out, a high of 33 degrees and sunny out. After I had Breakfast I prepared Breakfast for Mom and Dad. I prepared Scrambled Eggs, sausage Patties, Buttery Grits, Toast, and made a pot of Coffee. Gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Comfort Food tonight!

 

 

I’ve been wanting some more of the Sausage and Beans for a while now. So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 


I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

 

Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, actually I fried 5 slices.  Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. I fried it up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

 

 

 

I love dishes that you can set and let them simmer, to me it seems to give food a much richer and deeper flavor. After a couple of hours I added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven and 1 skillet to clean. Also reheated the leftover Bakehouse Multigrain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

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

 

 

 

Sort of pressed for time, some family problems. For Dinner tonight I prepared some 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.

 


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, and serve. 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!

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this Monday morning I Poached an Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s quite a weather day out there today. When I got up this morning it was snowing. After Breakfast it was sleeting. Then by 11:00 it was freezing rain! So we’ve had it all today. We had a high of 38 degrees, which is the highest we’ve had in 3 weeks. They say 40’s tomorrow and 50’s by Wednesday, hope they have it right! It’s a good day to have some Slow Cooker 3 Bean Turkey Chili! So for Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

I had the 3 Bean Chili in the freezer. So I sat a container of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. The Chili freezes and reheats so easy. I’ll have to make some more, it’s my last container! To reheat the Chili; I’ll use a small sauce pan, spray it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, add the Chili to the pan, and heat slowly on medium low heat until heated through. The Chili is just as good as it was when it was made! To go with the Chili I made some Johnny Cakes. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread! I’ve left the original post which gives the ingredients and directions on making the Chili. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.

 

When I prepare my Chili I prepare the Ground Turkey and mix the Beans the night before. So the morning I’m making it everything is ready! I had the Crock Pot set up also. To make the Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in a 1/2 a Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it and it turns out delicious.

 

The first thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

 

 

The Beans and Ground Turkey were prepared last night. I started by opening all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Then in the morning, I added the Beans to Crock Pot. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours.

 

Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

 


To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread!
