Today’s Menu; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Started the day below zero again at minus 3. We only had a high of 15 degrees. After Lunch went to bank and post office and back home. Very cold out but it feels good to get out of the house! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

To prepare the Sandwiches I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

 

 

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! What a Sandwich, Sour Dough Bread just makes everything that much better!

 

 

I had already preheated the oven, so as the griddle was heating I baked my Fries, I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Enjoy the exceptional flavor of a traditional bone-in ham without the bone. Available in the Deli retail case as a center of the plate item or at the Service Deli sliced by the pound for a sandwich of note.

Today’s Menu: Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this Morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. This morning it was cloudy and 28 degrees. As the day went on we seen some sunshine and a high of 51 degrees. Did a few things around the house and then starting at Noon I watched College Football for the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight some Breakfast! I prepared Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast.

 

 

Breakfast for Dinner sounded perfect for Dinner tonight! I sliced up the rest of our Thanksgiving Ham off the bone. The Ham, as it is most years, was moist and delicious! We used Cook’s Bone In Ham. To prepare it I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I then took a few slices of it and reheated it i tin the skillet for about 5 minutes. I love this Ham! It has such good flavor, perfect for Breakfast or Dinner.

 

 

 

Next I used the same skillet and I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg. Fried it on medium low, seasoned with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

As the the Ham and Egg were cooking, in another skillet I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I love these, I could have them every day! Again I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. i fried these for 14 minutes. When done I sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped them with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Had a glass of 2% White Milk to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Kitchen Closed today

 
We had to call 911 and have Dad taken back to the Hospital. He was so weak he couldn’t even get up from chair. It ham-swiss-on-sourdough-bread-004looks as though they are going to keep him there for 1-2 days and then move him to a Rehab and Assisted Living Center to see if they can build his strength back up, hopefully it’s not a permanent move. So its been a very long day for all of us. I picked up a Salad at the Hospital Cafeteria for a late Lunch. I returned home about 5:00 this afternoon. Too tired to cook! I just made a Ham Sandwich with a few Potato Chips for Dinner. I used Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kroger Bakery Sour Dough Bread, Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips, Helluva French Onion Dip. Not a bad last-minute Dinner! Kitchen will reopen tomorrow!

Arby's Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries 009

Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market so this morning after i prepared us Breakfast that’s where we went. I love shopping at Jungle Jim’s! There’s always some different items every time you shop here. I picked up some Deli Meats and Cheese, Polenta, and some Seafood. Back home finished up some laundry for Mom and went to the rehab center to see Dad for a while. They told us at rehab that they tested his memory and he’s lost about 50% of his memory. Only going to get worse with dementia. For dinner tonight Arby’s Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

 

 

Arby's Ham and Cheese Sliders and Baked Crinkle Fries 001
Another one of those days where I had dinner planned out and it just didn’t work out. I was at the rehab with Dad longer than I thought I was going to be and when I left to come home I just didn’t feel like cooking. So I had heard that Arby’s Sliders were very good so I stopped there and picked up 2 of the Ham and Cheese Sliders. I opted to go with the Ham Slider over the Roast Beef, fewer calories. First time I tried these and really like them! Fantastic Slider Bun and excellent Ham. I’ve always loved the Arby’s Ham sandwiches, just don’t eat out often.

 

 
Then I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. These have a lot fewer calories, carbs, and fat than Arby’s or any take-out Fries. I had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping also. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Ham, Cheese, and Fried Egg Biscuit w/ Hash Browns

 

Ham, Cheese, and Fried Egg Biscuit 009

Another night and day of heavy rain on and off. Had some excitement here in the neighborhood, just down the street and around the corner from where I live. The Police answered a domestic disturbance call and when they got there a man had barricaded himself in and was armed. So we had the West Chester Police Department and a Swat Team all here from 6:30 yesterday evening until about 10:00 this morning. He finally came out on his own and was arrested. It’s usually a real quiet neighborhood, but not last night! Did some chores around the house and ran to Kroger for Mom. For dinner tonight it’s a Breakfast Menu! I prepared a Ham, Cheese, and Fried Egg Biscuit w/ Hash Browns.

 

 

 

Ham, Cheese, and Fried Egg Biscuit 001
I got the basic idea for this sandwich watching an episode of American Diner Revival , love that show. Chef Amanda Freitag spices the menus of small diners being renovated. I simplified my version of her recipe and added a Fried Egg on top of the Ham. To make the Sandwich I’ll be using the following; Smithfield Anytime Hickory Smoked Boneless Sliced Ham, 1 Egg (Medium Size), 1 Slice Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard, 1 Grands Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuit. This sounds delicious just writing the ingredients down!

 

Ham, Cheese, and Fried Egg Biscuit 007
For A side dish; I cooked the Hash Browns, as I said on medium high heat, in Extra Virgin Olive Oil for about 16 minutes. I used Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, my favorite packaged Potatoes. Always fresh and so easy to prepare. Wow, one delicious Breakfast/Dinner Sandwich and side. Really enjoyed this meal. For dessert later a healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Baked Ham, Pepperoni, and Swiss Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

Baked Ham, Pepperoni, and Swiss Mini Sub 014
I’d like to start off by saying congratulation to my Mom and Dad, today is their 67th Wedding Anniversary! Wow, 67 years! Love you both and hope you have many more. We have another humid day out again. They say we’ll have this humidity around for several more days before it ends. Lot of heavy rain again with more on the way. I went to Kroger early this morning for a few items and then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Mom and Dad’s favorite Breakfast Sandwiches. For dinner tonight I prepared Baked Ham, Pepperoni, and Swiss Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries for everyone.

 

 

Baked Ham, Pepperoni, and Swiss Mini Sub 001
Bummed around the kitchen and pantry and nothing sounded good. Finally settled on a Baked Ham, Pepperoni, and Swiss Mini Subs. I used Smithfield Anytime Hickory Smoked Boneless Sliced Ham. The Ham is precooked so it’s a breeze to prepare. Heat it up for 30 seconds and it’s ready! Then I also used Kroger Brand Private Selection Old World Deli Sliced Pepperoni, Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese, LaRosa Sauce, and a Perfection Deli Mini Wheat Sub Bun.

 

 

Ready for the oven!

Ready for the oven!

To assemble the Sub I started by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. I grabbed a small cookie sheet and lined it with foil. I wrapped the Sub Bun in foil and heated it up in the oven for 5 minutes, just to get it a bit crispy. To start I spread LaRosa Sauce on the bottom bun. Then I layered 3 slices of the Pepperoni, followed by the Sliced Ham, and the Swiss Cheese and top Bun. Put the Sub on the pan and baked it for about 8 minutes. One good Sub Sandwich! Both Meats were perfect, then the LaRosa Sauce added the fantastic flavor, and topped with that melted Swiss Cheese! Sometimes it’s a good thing to have no dinner plans and then throw something together!

Findlay Market Parade

Findlay Market Parade

 

Well today is a Holiday here in the Cincinnati area! It’s Opening Day here in Cincinnati. Opening Day here is like no other Opening Day in Baseball. The day starts off with annual Findlay Market Parade, this is the 96th annual Parade this year. It’s the only day where skipping school and calling in sick to work is accepted. As long time Manager of the Reds said “It’s a holiday—a baseball holiday! Ain’t no other place in America got that!” — Sparky Anderson. So Play Ball!

 

 

It’s been partly cloudy all day but it’s in the 60’s. They are calling for rain later tonight and most of the upcoming week. After a light Breakfast went to Kroger for a few items I needed for tomorrow’s dinner, figured I would get it now while it’s not raining. Had a mid – afternoon doctors appointment at the Oncologist, just my normal 6 month check-up. For dinner tonight some delicious leftovers; Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

It was leftover Heaven tonight for dinner! I used slices of the Baked Glazed Ham (Cumberland Gap Premium Boneless and Semi-Boneless Hams) that I prepared for yesterday’s dinner. I heated up a medium

Grilled Ham and Cheese Squash 004 size skillet on medium heat, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. As that was heating I sliced some off of yesterday’s Baked Ham. Along with the Ham I used Klosterman Wheat Bread and Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese to make my sandwich with. To make the sandwich I buttered one side of both slices of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and then on the unbuttered sides layered the Ham and then the Cheese. I then grilled the sandwich in my preheated pan. Grilling both sides until golden brown. I love a Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich, but made with this ham it was even better! The Cumberland Gap Premium Boneless and Semi-Boneless Hams are incredible, moist and so flavorful!

 

 

 

For a side dish I reheated the Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash. I love this dish, it turned me into a huge fan of Butternut Squash. It does take a little time and effort to make this dish but the reward is truly one of my Grilled Ham and Cheese Squash 005favorite side dishes! To make it I’ll need; 6 pieces of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, 5 cups peeled and cubed Butternut Squash, 1 cup Pecans, roughly chopped, ¼ cup Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Syrup, 2-3 tablespoons Bacon Fat (rendered from cooking bacon), ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, and ¼ teaspoon Sea Salt. I used Turkey Bacon instead of the regular Bacon, Sugar Free Maple Syrup, and added the dash of Nutmeg. Which varies from the other recipes I found, I always try to cut calories and carbs from all recipes. With these ingredients you know how delicious this is going to be! I’ve the complete recipe at the end of the post, this is one you’ll want to try! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Baked Glazed Ham w Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash 014

Happy Easter to everyone! And what a beautiful Easter Day outside. It started out in the 30’s but we ended with a high in the 60’s and sunny all day! I wanted to make Mom and Dad a special Easter Dinner, and I think it turned out really well! I prepared a Baked Glazed Ham w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans,Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash, and Baked Crescent Rolls

 
I used a Cumberland Gap Semi-Boneless Ham, I purchased it at Kroger the other day. I used the Baked Glazed Ham w Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash 006Cumberland Gap Hams once before but it’s been a few years back. Very easy to prepare; start by preheating the oven to 325 Degrees. I scored the Ham 1/4 inch with sharp knife and then placed several Pineapple Slices across the Ham. Placed the Ham in baking dish and lightly covered with foil. As it started to bake Mom made her Ham Brown Sugar Glaze, using Splenda Brown Sugar. We baked, per the instructions at 10-15 minutes per pound. In the last 1/2 hour of baking I removed the foil to add the Glaze. Continued to bake until we had an internal temperature of 150 Degrees Fahrenheit. What a Ham! Absolutely delicious, so moist and flavorful! We have plenty leftover to make some Ham Sandwiches and for some Ham and Eggs for Breakfast.

 

 

Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash

Butternut Squash

I’m always happy with just a side or two, but Mom and Dad love side dishes! So for one side I made some Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash. I made this one other time and the whole family loved it. So it seemed like a perfect time to make it again, pairs perfectly with Ham. To make it I’ll need; 6 pieces of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, 5 cups peeled and cubed Butternut Squash, 1 cup Pecans, roughly chopped, ¼ cup Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Syrup, 2-3 tablespoons Bacon Fat (rendered from cooking bacon), ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, and ¼ teaspoon Sea Salt. I used Turkey Bacon instead of the regular Bacon, Sugar Free Maple Syrup, and added the dash of Nutmeg. Which varies from the other recipes I found, I always try to cut calories and carbs from all recipes.

 

 
To prepare it I preheated oven to 350 degrees. Placed the Jennie – O Turkey strips of bacon on a foil lined baking sheet. Cooked the bacon for 20 minutes. The bacon should still be slightly soft (not crispy) wheBaked Glazed Ham w Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash 009_cropn you pull it out of the oven. Removed from baking sheet to cool on a paper towel lined plate. Chopped the bacon into small pieces once cooled and placed what little there was of the rendered bacon fat in a large bowl to use later. Before cutting and dicing the Squash, make sure you have a thick bladed and sharp knife. Add the cubed butternut squash, pecans, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to the large bowl with the bacon fat. Mix together to coat the squash well. Add pieces of bacon to the mixture and mix well. Add mixture to a 9×11 glass baking dish. Increased the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Placed the dish in the oven to bake for 35-40 minutes (depending on size of cubed butternut squash) or until squash is soft. It takes a little time and effort to prepare but well worth it! The Squash combined with everything is flat-out delicious! The Turkey Bacon, Pecans, and the Syrup combine to make this dish the “Bomb”. A definite keeper recipe. A perfect dish for the Holidays or any Special Dinner.

 

 

Baked Glazed Ham w Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash 004

Then for the other sides I heated up some of our favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Microwave a total of 6 minutes and serve. Then I grabbed a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, what’s a Holiday Meal without Green Beans! Our last batch of the Canned Green Beans has been one of our better batches, and still have plenty left. Then I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. Wow quite an Easter Dinner. Mom and Dad loved it and that what counts! Hope everyone has a had a great Easter! For dessert later a Jello Black Cherry Sugar Free Jello.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich w/ Chunky Baked Potato & Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup

 

Grilled Ham and Cheese Potato Soup 001

A lot of sunshine but one cold wind blowing out there today. I woke up feeling so much better today, looks like I’m shaking the flu off. So many people with it right now. Went to Kroger for a few items and the bank and back home. Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom and ran the vacuum for her. For dinner tonight nothing but a Comfort Food!, I prepared a Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich w/ Chunky Baked Potato & Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup.

 

 

Just seemed like a Comfort Food Day and what better to have than a Grilled Ham and Cheese Grilled Ham and Cheese Potato Soup 003Sandwich w/ Chunky Baked Potato & Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup. Always a hearty, quick and easy dinner! I used Boar’s Head Smoked Honey Ham, Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Litehouse Lite Thousand Island Dressing, and Klosterman Wheat Bread to make my sandwich with. Thousand Island Dressing is a great way to liven up any sandwich, especially when you can find a great tasting Lite or Reduced Fat one. The Litehouse Lite is only 70 calories and 4 carbs per serving. To make the sandwich I buttered both pieces of the bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and then on the unbuttered sides I spread the Thousand Island Dressing, then layered the Ham, and then the Cheese. I heated a small frying pan and grilled the Sandwich on both sides until they are golden brown and the Cheese is just starting to melt. A Grilled Cheese is good anytime of the day but one with added Ham and the Thousand Island Dressing gives it that extra kick.

 

 

Grilled Ham and Cheese Potato Soup 005
Along with the sandwich I had a bowl of Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup, 190 calories and 19 net carbs per serving. One of Campbell’s Better Soups. Very good tasty, thick and hearty Soup. I topped with a some Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. A warm and hearty meal! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

 

 

 

 

 

Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup

Today’s Special Christmas Menu: Baked Half Ham, Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Deviled Eggs, and much more!

Christmas Dinner 2014 007

 

Christmas Dinner should always be special and ours was! Everything was so delicious and aromas throughout the house that just made your mouth water. For dinner it just myself and Mom and Dad. Some of our relation stopped over at various times during the day and evening. I prepared the meal along with Mom. And as usual she made enough for three families. For our Ham we used an Aldi Appleton Farms Half Ham. You can these Hams at Aldi Stores. These are the best tasting Hams we have ever come across. It’s our third year using them and they are just incredible! We had the Ham, Mashed Potatoes Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Beans, Deviled Eggs, Baked Rolls, Cranberry Sauce, Baked Beans, Pecan Pie, Chocolate Pie, need I say more! Enough for three families. Everything was so delicious. I’m keeping it short today, as we had visitors on and off throughout the day and night.
