Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Chili Mac w/ Baked Crescent Rolls

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Rolled out to get the papers this morning and the cars and grass areas had snow on them, not a lot but slightly covered. For the day it was 38 degrees, partly cloudy and very windy that took the wind chill to around 33 degrees. Not such a great day for Opening Day here for the Cincinnati Reds. This was the only day that Mom and Dad would let me stay home from school back when I was in Elementary School. They knew how Baseball crazy I was! Opening Day around this area is like a National Holiday. So I had another bad day with my sinuses and sinus headache. If the weather would just stay warm or cold I would be fine but as long as our weather flips back and forth between the 2 my sinuses will continue to be bad. I wanted a hot meal and something easy to prepare. So I settled on Chef Boyardee Chili Mac w/ Baked Crescent Rolls.

 

First time I’ve had this in many of a year. As all Chef Boyardee products it’s easy to prepare and delicious! The Chili Mac is as it describes, Macaroni with Beef in Chili Gravy. To prepare it just empty the contents into saucepan. Heat over medium heat until warm, stirring occasionally. Ready to serve! Plenty of Macaroni along with plenty of Beef. And that Chili Gravy is so good, seasoned just right. There’s 270 calories and 23 net carbs per serving.

 

I also baked a small roll of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I just love these, they go great with any meal. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very windy and a high of 44 degrees. After my Tea I headed to Meijer. They had Cook’s Hams on sale at 89 cents a pound. I wanted to get one before they were picked over, for an Easter Dinner Ham. They had some great looking Half Shank Bone In Hams! Meijer had a big crowd to be so early and most were grabbing a Ham. Back home I didn’t get outside, just too windy and cold. So I was Couch Potato all day! For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food and Mom’s favorite, Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

So Mom loves Baked 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 a 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 saucepan, 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 with the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven for 10 minutes or until the Cheese has started to melt and everything is heated. We love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 25 degrees, snow flurries and cloudy out all day. Possible 1-2 inches of more snow coming in later tonight. Went and picked up Breakfast for Mom and stopped by the Bank for her. Not a lot going today, caught up on everything. And like yesterday, what a better way than Chili to heat up this cold Winter’s day! For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread. We thought one more day of Chili would be great. I’m freezing the rest. I left yesterday’s post below for ingredients and directions. Stay Safe and Enjoy!

 

I love making a batch of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey, 2 – 1lb. packages. 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),4 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 tsp Ground Anchio Chile Pepper, 2 tsp Ground Paprika, 1 Tbs. Ground Chile Seasoning, 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 tbsp of Cilantro Leaves 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.

 

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 aside and mixed my Beans. I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed.

 

Next I turned the Slow Cooker on Low, sprayed the cooker liner with Pam Non Stick Spray, and added a 1/2 cup of Water to it. Let heat for about 20 minutes and I added everything to the Crock Pot. I’ll be cooking my Chili for 6 – 7 hours. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, 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 meals , can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day! The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post.

 

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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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

 

 

To start this morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. We got our biggest snowfall sine 1992. Some areas have 10 inches. We have about 8-9 inches with more on the way tonight, Wednesday, and the weekend! My neighbor cleared most of our driveway with his snow blower/plow. Then I hit it with the Salt. By 1:00 the driveway was almost cleared and I was able to use the snow shovel to clear the rest out. I’ll salt it again later tonight. It’s a pain to shovel snow from a wheelchair but you have to get things done. What a better way than Chili to heat up this cold Winter’s day! For Dinner tonight it’s my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread. I prepared the Chili yesterday afternoon. So it was ready to be heated up for Dinner tonight.

For Breakfast this morning I lightly fried some Turkey Spam, had a Sunny Side Up Egg, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s one cold morning out there today! The temperature was at 9 degrees and the wind chill was Below Zero! 23 for a high and sunny, but the winds kept it in the single digits. Good day to stay in. Just did a few chores around the house and then relaxed and watched a few shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food and Mom’s favorite, Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos.

Today’s Menu: Omaha Steakhouse Chili

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas English Muffin and topped it with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One cold morning out there, 17 degrees with a wind chill at 12 degrees! For the day we had a high of 34 degrees and mostly sunny. After Breakfast I wiped the Kitchen down with some Lysol Disinfectant Wipes. Got the counters, cabinets, microwave, stove and fridge. Next it was Pantry and Freezers. Cleaned and straightened both. For Dinner tonight another new Omaha Steak product, Omaha Steakhouse Chili.

 

 

One of the other 1st time items I ordered from Omaha Steaks is their Omaha Steakhouse Chili. As the other Omaha items it comes frozen, packaged in plastic bags you can boil or heat in the microwave. It’s made using Premium Ground Beef, Chili Seasoning, Spices, Black Beans, and Red and Green Peppers.

 

 

I’ll be boiling ours tonight. Another Do Not Thaw item. To prepare it on the Stove Top: In a large Sauce pan bring enough water to a boil in a pot to submerge the Chili Bag. I placed the bag in the water. Reduced heat to medium and let simmer 30 minutes. Removed bag with tongs and cut open corner using scissors. Poured into bowls and served!

 

 

 

 

 

I served it topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a side of Oyster Crackers. I also added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce. I’ve found some Delicious Chili here! Nice Seasonings with plenty of Ground Beef, BlackBeans, and Peppers! If your looking for a Delicious and super quick way to have Chili, look no further! Plus it’s a very easy clean up since all you used a sauce pan and boiled water in it. I’ll purchase more of this, good item for the freezer! For Dessert/Snack later a small bowl of Chex Mix with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Omaha Steakhouse® Chili
Omaha Steakhouse® Chili is a hearty meal brimming with perfectly seasoned ground beef and loaded with black beans and red and green peppers. It comes portioned in convenient bags you just boil, or heat in the microwave.


* Packed with premium ground beef
* Authentic chili seasoning with black beans, and red and green peppers
* Packaged in convenient bags you can boil or heat in the microwave
* 100% guaranteed delicious

Description
It’s the first thing you notice as you start to ladle the simmering chili into your bowl: the deep, rich aroma of a perfectly cooked steak. “How is that possible? This is chili,” you tell yourself. But this isn’t just any chili – it’s chili created by America’s Original Butcher.

Loaded with ground beef that’s nicely seasoned with chili powder, garlic, salt, and pepper, our chefs then added hearty black beans along with red and green bell peppers to impart a layer of natural sweetness that harmonizes wonderfully with the beef.

One bite and you’ll agree – this is real good, feel-good-food at its finest.

Preparation
Do Not Thaw

Stove-Top: Bring enough water to a boil in a pot to submerge soup bag. Place bag of chili in water. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer 30 minutes. Remove bag with tongs and carefully cut open corner using scissors. Pour into serving bowl and serve.

Microwave (1100-watt): Place unopened bag in microwave. Microwave on defrost for 6-8 minutes. Carefully cut open corner of bag and pour into a microwave safe dish. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir well before serving or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Stir well before serving.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Diced Potatoes and Ham Skillet for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Snow Showers and Light Rain out today, high of 35 degrees. Cleaned and straightened the pantry and both freezers today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys.

 

We love our Cheese Coneys around here! Living here all my life here in Cincinnati you are raised on Cheese Coneys and Chili! I used Ball Park Smoked White Meat Turkey Franks, an excellent Turkey Frank! I boiled them, it took about 5 minutes and they were ready, plump, and delicious. Plus they are lower in calories and carbs than most other Hot Dogs, 45 calories and 5 carbs!

 

I heated a can of Skyline Chili with Beans for my topping. We prefer the Chili with Beans over the Chili with no Beans. It just gives the Coneys even more flavor with the added Beans! I served everything on a Healthy Life Wheat Hot Dog Buns. Put the Frank in the Bun then topped it with French’s Yellow Mustard, the Chili, and Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese. Had a small side of some Skyline Oyster Crackers with a few drops of Frank’s Hot Sauce on them, which is a common way to have them here in the Cincinnati area. We love our Chili, Chili Dogs, Chili Spaghetti, and Hot Sauce here in the Cincinnati area. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and a high of 53 degrees! Not bad for the end of December. I took advantage of the nice weather and got my cart out of the shed. I did a few things around the yard and picked up a lot of boxes and trash that had landed in our yard from the heavy winds the night before. It had knocked over quite a few garbage cans that had been set by the curb for pick up. Good to get out before the weather turns on Christmas Day, wind chill near zero! ‘Tis the Season! So for Dinner tonight I got the last container of the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili out of the freezer and heated that up. So it’s 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes. I’ve left a previous post for the ingredients and directions. I’ll be making a new Batch soon! I also made some Johnny Cakes to go with the Chili Take care all and Stay Safe!

 

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!

 

 

To prepare Johnny Cakes all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra 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 3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 004ingredients 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. To serve I placed mine on a plate and topped it with my 3 Bean Chili and Shredded Cheese. And now it’s Comfort Food Heaven! Chili and Cornbread are meant to be together!

Today’s Menu: Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up some om favorite Glier’s Goetta. I also cooked up some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I have been having Goetta for quite a few years. I normally use the Glier’s Turkey Goetta but right now you can only find the regular Goetta. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. After that did some chores around the house. Our neighborhood on our street has it’s first Covid Virus household. Both the husband and wife has tested positive. So glad I stay over 8 feet from people around here. I just hope the upcoming vaccines work and we try to get back to normal. For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys.

 

We love our Cheese Coneys around here! Living here all my life here in Cincinnati you are raised on Cheese Coneys and Chili! I used Ball Park Smoked White Meat Turkey Franks, an excellent Turkey Frank! I boiled them, it took about 5 minutes and they were ready, plump, and delicious.
