Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and partly cloudy out today, a bit cooler and low humidity. After my Tea I headed to Kroger for Mom. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home I did a load of laundry and then outside to do some yard work. Got the cart, rake, shovel, and Leaf Blower out of the shed. Pulled up a couple of dead bushes on the side of the house. Then cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting 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. 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 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the 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!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet sprayed it the Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 14 minutes flipping it several times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo, you have to try it! I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise on the last Turkey Burger and loved it! It’s nice and Creamy with excellent flavor and a nice little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a few slices of a Honeycrisp Apple.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a 2 Egg Cheese Omelet and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees and sunny outside today. After Breakfast did a couple of loads of laundry. Then on outside to get some yard work done. Got my cart out of the shed and finished raking the back yard. Then sprayed for weeds around the house and deck. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food, Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

I didn’t have much of an appetite tonight and Mom didn’t want anything heavy. So Mom loves Chili and Cheese Nachos, as I do! So Nachos it is tonight! To make them I’ll need: Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack, they bake and hold their shape better than most chips. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, sliced up some Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. Put all that together and it’s nothing but good Nachos! I especially love the Jalapenos, nice mild heat!

To prepare I preheated the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I first opened up 2 cans of the Hormel Chili with Beans and heated them up in a sauce pan, as it was heating I added about 6 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and mixed. After the Chili was ready I added 4 tablespoons of Chili to the baking dish, then I added my Scoops (Chips). I then added the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. We love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! For Dessert later a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take care and Stay safe all!

Today’s Menu: Mozzarella and Mushroom Bison Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and partly sunny, had a light shower move through in late afternoon. I grabbed my Mask and I went to Kroger for Mom for a few items and then stopped by Wendy’s and picked up her Breakfast. A friend of mine came over after Lunch and I gave him a hand replacing the living room and dining room window blinds. The ones up were so old the slats were breaking in half, much needed new ones! That was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Mozzarella and Mushroom Bison Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

To make my Bison Steak Sandwich I used SayersBrook Bison Ranch Ground Bison Sirloin. I used a meat tenderizer to get it a bit finer and then formed them into patties. I had them in the freezer so I set them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Steak Sandwich I’ll using the Bison with seasonings of McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and McCormick Italian Seasoning. For toppings I’m going to Sautee some Mushrooms, Ragu Pizza Sauce, a slice of Kroger Mozzarella Cheese, and served on a Aunt Millie’s Deli Whole Grain Mini Sub Bun. I had 2 of the Steak Patties, I fried both of the them.

 

Then to prepare them I took a medium size skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heated it on medium heat. As it heated I added a tablespoon on Extra Light Olive Oil. Next I seasoned the Steaks. I started with a light rub of the Extra Light Olive Oil on both sides then I seasoned them with the Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley and the Italian Seasoning. With the skillet ready I added both Steaks I fried them a total of 6 minutes, 3 minutes per side. After flipping the Patties I added a slice of Mozzarella Cheese with a minute of cooking time left. As these were cooking I added some sliced Mushrooms to a small skillet that I heated it on medium heat. Seasoned them and Sauteed them, set aside when done till needed.

I took the finished Steaks and put them on the bottom half of the Mini Sub Bun. Topped them with the Pizza Sauce and with the Sauteed Mushrooms. ready to serve! These turned out really good, excellent flavor! I didn’t have a small sirloin to pound out but I’m going to purchase some just to make a Steak Sandwich with. Really enjoyed these!

 

To go with my Steak Sandwiches I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, my favorites. Served with some Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


SayersBrook Ground Bison
Most times a recipe using ground meat cautions you to drain it as part of the preparation instructions. This is because of the fat content of the meat. In addition to being unhealthy, what you are draining is uneconomical. You’re pouring money down the drain, literally. With Ground Bison Meat from SayersBrook Bison Ranch, you won’t have this problem. In fact, we recommend that you spray your fry pan or skillet with a non-stick spray. It’s the good old American custom of getting what you pay for. Conveniently packaged in 1 lb units, Ground Bison Meat can be used in any recipe calling for beef. Now, you can make chili, lasagna, or your favorite casserole with delicious bison ground meat. One serving (1/3 lb) of ground bison contains 11 g fat, 270 calories, 0 g carbs and 31 g of protein.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese and Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 47 degrees out on this St. Patrick’s Day Morning. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s and stopped and got gas for her car. Mom didn’t go to Church. She’s feeling a lot better today but still not up to par. I did a load of laundry and it was house cleaning today. Had everything done and watched College Basketball for the afternoon. Dinner tonight another one of those Comfort Foods Dinner, Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

I heated up a can of Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup. My favorite Tomato Soup by far. I’ve been using for quite some time now. So creamy with a fantastic flavor and it’s 110 calories and 19 carbs. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan and heat on medium, stirring often, until heated. And it’s ready to go!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then for 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. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip

 

 

For Breakfast this morning it was Ham and Eggs. I had purchased a small Meijer Sliced Pepper Ham. So I sliced several pieces up and fried them in a small skillet until heated through. Then in another skillet I fried a Sunny Side Up Egg. Then I toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good Breakfast to start an Icy and Cold morning. We got freezing rain overnight and snow on top of it, about 1/2 an itch. It all made for some slick roads out there, a lot of wrecks. It got to 40 degrees later and cloudy for the afternoon. I’m usually up by 6:00 am. or so but I slept in till 8:00 this morning! It felt good to get that extra sleep. Not much going on outside today so I did things around the house today. Cleaned the house and then some repairs. I replaced some of the lower wall trim around the house. I run into it sometimes in my Hoveround Mobility Chair and damage it. So a while back I bought a long strip of the wood trim at Home Depot. That way I have it on hand to replace it from time to time. So I stayed busy inside all day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip.

 

 


Just seemed like a good day for a Sandwich for Dinner! For my Sandwich I’ll be using the Boar’s Head Roast Beef, a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and served on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Now this is a Sandwich! I Can’t even describe how delicious the Boar’s Head Rare Roast Beef and Cheese is. It’s just so tender and flavorful. And of course Cheese, which makes anything better, with the Mayo and Mustard makes this the perfect Sandwich! To go with the Sandwich I’m having some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips with some Dean’s Ranch Dressing Dip. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Boar’s Head Deluxe Low Sodium Oven Roasted Beef – Cap-Off Top Round

Simply seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic, this tender cut is then roasted to delicious perfection. Boar’s Head Deluxe Low Sodium Oven Roasted Beef is a healthier take on a classic that is sensibly spiced for big roast beef flavor in each slice.

All You Need is Cheese!
It’s all about cheese at Jungle Jim’s Big Cheese Festival. With over 1,400 cheeses offered everyday in our amazing Cheese Shop, it’s no surprise that we have enough to dedicate an entire festival to celebrate its deliciousness. Experience a world of cheese featuring 40+ booths from over 80 companies, sharing their goods across a range of styles and flavors. We’ll have local, artisan, and international cheeses as well as charcuterie and more, all under one roof!

Life is Great But Cheese Makes it Better
Cheese is good when served alone, but you will excite your taste buds even more with the delectable selection of meats, olives, breads, and a variety of condiments including spreads, jams, and fruits we’ll have throughout. So be on the lookout for a variety of food booths amongst the tables of cheese.

Where There’s Wine, There’s a Whey!
Nothing goes better with cheese than a cold beer or glass of wine – the flavors are enhanced when they’re paired together. There will be multiple stations throughout the festival, all placed by region so finding the perfect pair will be easy as possible. Wine and beer will be available for purchase at the event by the glass, or get a VIP or drinking wristband and enjoy samples throughout the day.

Say Cheese!
This is a family friendly show, with exciting things planned for all ages! There will be lively music to complement the experience, and there will be several entertaining photo opportunities available throughout the day. Be sure to vote for some of your favorite cheeses, as well. You can help crown Best in Show or, if you’re up to the task, the Stinkiest Cheese! This show is bursting with all types of fun to see, try, and experience.

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!
