Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Mixed Chili Bean

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 64 degrees and rain showers most of the day. I had to be at Kroger to pick up a food order I had placed yesterday. I had to pick them early so to try to get a few Meat Items. They say the later in the day your order is the less chance you have of getting Meat, Milk, and Eggs. There was already quite a few in line to Pick Up. I could go to the store but i can’t take a chance of catching something and bringing home and Mom catch it, she’s 92! So I just have to play it safe and stay in Isolation. So for dinner tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 4 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had!

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner.

 

 

 

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 Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak

Famous for their flavor, these juicy steaks are perfect for the grill. The steaks are cut from the middle and upper part of the primal sirloin and their smaller size makes a great meal for one. 5 oz.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well Isolation continues. Both me and Mom are fine but Mom being 92 its not a good idea for her to be out, but most everything is shutdown around here anyway but a few Grocery Stores. Then its hard for me to go out and possibly pick up something and then she gets it. Just best to in for a couple of weeks. We’ll sure be glad when this virus finally passes! Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the sweeper. For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

We love our Turkey Tacos, great Comfort food for us! When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have an okay selection of it. So 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, Bush’s Beans, and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

 

For the rest of my 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. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

For Breakfast on this Chilly Friday Morning I had a Poached Egg that I served on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A rainy morning and then a cloudy afternoon, high of 57 degrees.

I prepared them in a 3-quart saucepan. Sprayed the skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Cooked them for about 21 minutes until cooked through. They browned up perfect, one good tasting Brat! I served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hot Dog Bun, topping it with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

For a side I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans! Brats and Beans Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Red Beans, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Rice

Today’s Menu: Red Beans, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some French Toast. I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Cinnamon, and Ground Nutmeg. I topped the Pancakes with Log Cabin Sugarless Maple Syrup and i Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 64 degrees and partly cloudy out. Got the cart out of the shade and did some more work outside around the house. So good to be able to get outdoors again! For Dinner tonight I prepared Red Beans, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Rice.

 

 

What better way to start your week of than with Red Beans, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Rice. To make mine I’ll need a can of Bush’s Chili Beans – Red Beans, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, Uncle Ben’s Original Long Grain Rice, Litehouse Spring Onion, and Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

To prepare the Bush’s Red Beans was the easiest part. Just opened the can, got a small sauce pan, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, emptied the can of Beans in the pan and heated on medium till it started to boil and turned the heat to low and simmered till heated through. Took the pan off the burner and let it set until needed.

 

 

I got a skillet out as the Beans was cooking, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Sliced the Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage into bite size slices and added them to the heated skillet until heated through. Removed them from the heat and set aside until needed.

 

 

 

On a third burner as the Beans and Sausage was finishing I cooked my Rice. Combined the Rice, Water and Butter in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat medium low, simmer covered for 20 minutes. Then remove from the heat. Let stand covered 5 minutes until the water is absorbed. Fluffed it with a fork and served!

 

 

 

To serve I made a bed of the Rice in a bowl. Topped the Rice with some of the Red Beans. Added the sliced Smoked Sausage. Then added a few shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce and a sprinkle of the Spring Onions. This turned out to be a true Comfort Food Meal! Really Enjoyed it. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for a couple of lunches! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks with a Sprite Zero to drink.

3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigeloe Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After my Tea I headed out to Meijer for a few items, didn’t need much just wanted to get out a bit. Mostly sunny and 41 degrees out today. On the way back home I picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Headed back out and went to the ATM, stopped and got gas, and then took Mom’s car up and had it washed. Not a lot going on today, just did a few things around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread.

 

 

I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili from last night’s Dinner in the fridge. If I was making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. With toppings of Sargento Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Oyster Crackers. I just added the leftover Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside as my Pasta was cooking. For the full recipe and cooking instructions of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili just click the link, (https://beatcancer2010.wordpress.com/2020/02/18/3-bean-turkey-chili-w-cornbread-2/)

 

For my Elbow Pasta I used DereamFields Elbows. It’s tough finding Whole Grain Pastas, at least around here where I live. Used to be I could find it at most any Grocery Store. The DreamFields is all I could find at Meijer earlier. It’s 190 calories and 36 net carbs per serving, cooks up great, and good taste. Filled a large pot up 1/2 way with water and added salt. Heated the water on high until boiling and added the Pasta. Cooked it for 7 minutes.

 

 

 

When done removed it from the pot and drained. Add it back to the pot and add the heated 3 Bean Turkey Chili and mix with a large spoon, heat on low and mix well. And it’s ready to serve! You can top it with Cheese, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream, or Diced Onions. I just always use the Cheese and Hot Sauce for my toppings. To serve just grab a bowl and scoop out the amount that you want. Add your toppings, if any, and enjoy! The 3 Bean Turkey Chili works perfect with Elbow Pasta. Such a good Comfort Food Dish!

 

 

 

To go with the Chili Mac I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. We had showers in the morning and cloudy later on, high of 51 degrees but dropping during the afternoon. Cleaned House, did some laundry, and made some Chili for the day! For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins.

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after a couple of hours 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. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

I also prepared a small batch of Cornbread Muffins. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start my day off I Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its cloudy and rain showers. Later it was mostly cloudy and 50 degrees out. Not feeling too good today, my sinuses are driving me crazy! The weather needs to get cold and stay cold so my sinuses can adjust. As long as our temperatures keep going up and down I suffer. So not a lot going on for me today. For Dinner a Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve had a Loaded Baked Potato, and long over due! To make my Loaded Potato I’ll need a large Russet Potato, my 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Daisy Light Sour Cream.

 

 

 

 

To start I got a small Sauce Pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray. Then added my Chili that I had prepared yesterday and heated it on medium low until heated through. Set aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

 

I first turned the stove on at 400 degrees for my Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Garlic Salt, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Rinse cleaned the Asparagus and cut the tough ends off of the Asparagus before Seasoning. Laid the Asparagus Spears out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. First put some Extra Light Olive Oil across the Asparagus and then my Seasonings. Placed the pan in oven and cook for approximately 8 minutes. Topped it with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese before serving.

 

 

Finally I prepared the Potato. I first washed the Potato off and dried it with a paper towel. I grabbed a paring knife and I made small slits on all sides of the Potato. Next I got a bowl for the Potato. I then microwaved it for 6:00 minutes. Pulled it out of the microwave and gave it the fork test. I used the same paring knife and checked to make sure the Potato was done all the way through. Just jabbed the knife in the Potato and if it goes all the way through its done. Times will vary depending on the size of the Potato. I didn’t split the Potato open until I was ready to top it.

 

 

To serve it I split the Potato open, seasoned it with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I added my 3 Bean Turkey Chili, then the Sargento Cheese, and finally a dab of the Daisy Light Sour Cream. Wow, now this a Stuffed Potato! The Turkey Chili and Beans combined with the Cheese and a Sour Cream makes one delicious Potato! Served the Potato with the Roasted Asparagus and a slice of Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. I had baked a loaf earlier today. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Russet Potatoes……

Russet potatoes offer a higher fiber content than white potatoes, which helps improve gut health, Friedman continues. Russets are also a good source of iron, which supports healthy blood, and magnesium, which is needed for heart, nerve and immune system function.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to drop my car off over to the Auto Shop for an Oil Change, Tire Rotation and to repair a leak in Wind Shield Wiper Fluid Reserve. Had Mom’s Winterized last week and had mine done today. After I got back I loaded the Crock Pot up with all the ingredients for my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! Chili just seems to taste better this time of the year! Did a load of laundry and cleaned the Kitchen today, Fridge, Microwave, and Floor. For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread.

 

 

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.

 

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.

 

 

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, 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. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

 

I also prepared a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Kroger up the road for a couple of items. Then stopped by a ATM and then picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for Mom. Sunny and 73 degrees out, a perfect Autumn Day! Did some things around the house and then a little yard work. For Dinner tonight, Turkey and Black Bean Street Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use my favorite, Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have an okay selection of it. So 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, Bush’s Beans, and Mission Tacos together make one fine Taco!

 

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, and Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. These Tortilla are so good and taste so fresh. Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.
