Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For my Bread for the French Toast I used a new Bread from Aunt Millie’s I recently came across at Meijer, Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart 1 Net Carb Wheat Bread. For my Syrup I used Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. More on this Bread in a post later. Anyway, for my Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Now that’s a Breakfast! 70 degrees with rain showers out today. Got the cart out this morning before the rains moved in and sprayed for weeds, we have a lot of them. I had also bought some Mole Bait. Everyone has a problem with Moles this year. Cleaned the cart up before putting it away. For Dinner tonight Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans.

 

Wanted to grill again today. So I had picked up a package of Katie’s Best Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts at Meijer and had it in the freezer, laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. For the BBQ Sauce I’m using Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce. I’m seasoning it with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I went out and fired the grill up first. Next I sprayed the Chicken with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chicken Breast, then seasoned them with the Salt and Pepper and waited for the Grill to heat.

 

With the Grill ready I started. Added the Chicken and shut the lid on the grill. I let the chicken cook for 7 minutes, then used the tongs to flip the breasts over. Grilled for another 7 minutes longer. With about 1 minute of cooking time left I basted the Chicken with the Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce and finished cooking. Checked temperature of the Chicken with a thermometer reads it read just a tad over 165°. The Chicken came out fantastic! Moist and flavorful. First time using the Kraft Sauce and it was excellent!

 

As the Chicken was cooking I prepared the side dishes. For one side to go with the Chicken I prepared A can of Meijer Sliced Potatoes. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through and done!

 

Then for another 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! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. And Dinner is served! The Chicken was spot on and the Potatoes and Beans work perfect with the BBQ Chicken. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Raspberry/Tea Snapple to drink. Take care and stay safe everyone!

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries

 

To start the day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and sunny out today. It was about 53 degrees this morning when I rolled out to grab the morning papers. Got some yard work done today, a beautiful day just to be outside! Later cleaned up the grill a bit to use for Dinner. For Dinner tonight Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries.

 

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! I had the Burger in the freezer so I laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. Used a Paper Towel and rubbed it in some Extra Light Olive Oil. Then rubbed the Grill Grate down with it. Then fired up the Grill! Seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. With the Grill heated I started grilling. I grilled the Buffalo Burger and Brat and Mett for Mom. I grilled the Burger about 3 minutes and flipped it over. After 2 minutes I added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar and cooked it another 1 minute and done! Served the Burger on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Products are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger! Plus that added flavor by grilling it.

To go with my Burger I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Hash Brown and Diced Ham Skillet. I used Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and then topped it all with the Sunny Side Egg. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Partly Cloudy and 65 drees out today. Gave the grill a good cleaning. Took it apart and cleaned the burners and cleaned the shell.

Today’s Menu: Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Mom and Dads T-Bone

Mom and Dads T-Bone

A Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and all the other Fathers out there! Another sunny day out again, bit warmer and more humid though. Went to Jungle Jim’s International Market this morning, they had T-Bones on sale and I wanted to prepare them for Mom and Dad for dinner. I’ve been wanting some BBQ so for my dinner I prepared Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ 001

For Mom and Dad I prepared grilled the T-Bone Steaks, Baked Potato, Three Bean Salad, and Baked up some Texas Toast. For my BBQ I used the Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork w/ Barbecue Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest food, love them Ribs, anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger. So when it’s Pulled Pork I almost always use the Montgomery Inn brand. Anyway you just heat it in a medium sauce pan until it’s warmed and you have BBQ. It’s the perfect combination of the Pork and the mouth watering Montgomery Inn Sauce that makes this so delicious! Plus it’s only 110 calories and 8 carbs per serving. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I also baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup and also had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
