Today’s Menu: Bacon and Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Shredded Hash Browns

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Having a hard time with my allergies here the last 2 or 3 days. So I’m not quite up to par today with a bad headache. But after I had my Tea I went to the local Kroger here up the road for a few items. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I ran the vacuum and dusted. Then took it easy the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Bacon and Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Shredded Hash Browns.

 

 

I’m having another one of the Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER. I tried this for the first time a while back and loved them! It comes frozen and there’s 3 – 1/3 lb. Burger Patties. The Premium Ground Buffalo is mixed with Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese, and seasoning. I’ll be preparing it as I do all Wild Idea Buffalo Burger. I’m dressing it up a bit this time. To prepare I’ll need; Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese, 1 slice of Boar’s Head Bacon, Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam, and a toasted Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin.

 

 


To start it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, lightly seasoned. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. And as all the Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers it cooked up perfect!

 

 

 

As the Burger was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. By using the Muffin instead of Burger Bun I saved on Calories, Fat, and carbs. I also microwaved a slice of Boar’s Head Bacon.

 

 

 

 

 

To assemble the Burger I took the bottom slice of the Muffin and added some of the Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Next I added the Burger, Bacon Slice, Crumbled Blue Cheese, and the top half slice of the Muffin. And I had one incredible Burger! The Burger its self has bits of Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon in it along with Blue Cheese. Then the added Maytag Blue Cheese, Bacon slice, and Blackberry Jam just put this Burger over the top! That was my last Wild Idea Bacon Blue Burger that I had in the freezer. I’ll be ordering more but right now Wild Idea is out of stock on them.

 

 

The Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese I used is hard to find. I used to buy it at the Kroger Cheese Shop but they no longer carry it. So now I have order it DIRECT from Maytag Dairy Farms (https://www.maytagdairyfarms.com/) I also ordered some of their Cheddar Cheese Spread. Both are so good, the best Blue Cheese that I have ever found!

 

 

 


Then for a side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich w/ Hash Browns

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was one of those long nights dealing with Phantom Pains. They started last night around 10:00 and didn’t finally let up till around 9:00 this morning. I had to be up early anyway I had to have Mom to the Eye Doctor for a follow up on her cataracts removal. She’s already seeing better and the Doc said everything looked fine! The heat wave has started back up! 92 degrees and humid, the heat index is around 101 degrees! I was going to start the touch-up painting on the shed and shutters but just too tired to do it today. Spent the the day catching up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight its a Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich w/ Hash Browns.

 

It’s my 3rd day of Breakfast for Dinner Meals. I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and lightly fried a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty. I topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Chicken Sausage Patty; The Patties are fully cooked so all you have to do is reheat them. I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. Added the Patty to the heated skillet and cooked it for 6 minutes a side. Easy to prepare and delicious! These have such a good taste to them. They’re seasoned with Sage and Thyme. They also have some that are Maple Flavored but these are my favorites!

 

 

 

As the Sausage was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I love using these by their self, Breakfast Sandwiches, Muffin Pizzas, and much more! They’re 100 calories and 16 net carbs per Muffin. I served the Chicken Sausage Patty on the Muffin and topped it with a 1/2 slice of Cheese.

 

 

 

 

To go with my Dinner/Breakfast Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. To prepare these I took a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet. Add potatoes to skillet; Cook 6-7 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Drizzle with an additional 1/4 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. Turn potatoes over with a spatula. Continue to cook 6-8 minutes, and done! I sprinkled some Sargeto Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheese over top of them to serve. Really enjoy these Breakfast/Dinners! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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

 

 


For Breakfast this Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. At 10:30 this morning we had to be over at the office of where Dad is staying. We are applying for Medicade for Dad. They seem to want everything you have but your first-born children. Hope we get it worked out, very stressful! Rain showers this morning and very windy. There’s a lot of flooding all over the area, even had a Tornado watch last night. Very windy and a of 40 today, but the wind chill made it about 30. For Dinner tonight I wanted some Breakfast! So Breakfast it is, I prepared Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast.

 

 

Breakfast for Dinner sounded perfect for Dinner tonight! I sliced up the rest of our Ham off the bone, I had prepared the Ham the day before. The Ham is so 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.

 

 

 

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. I had one hearty Comfort Food Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Egg Sandwich and Hash Browns

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a sleepless night dealing with those Phantom Pains! These are so aggravating. They hurt so bad and not a thing you can do! Outside we got a little over an inch of new snow and 16 degrees. We had a high of 30 degrees and more snow this afternoon. Can’t do anything outside so I tried catching up on some sleep after the Phantom Pains stopped around noon. For Dinner tonight it’s an Egg Sandwich and Hash Browns.

 

I love Egg Sandwiches! hadn’t made these in years until a while back and enjoyed it so much I’m going to have it more often. To make it all I’ll need is 2 Eggs, Salt and Pepper, a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar, a bit of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Just get a mixing cup or coffee cup and crack open both Eggs into it. Season it with the Salt and Pepper and whisk it all together.

 

 

 

 

Heat a small skillet on medium heat, I sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I added the Butter, and when heated added the Egg Mixture. Fry it till the bottom browns and flip it. I then added my slice of Cheese on top of it. Cook until dome, and it’s ready! You can toast the Bread if you like, I didn’t toast mine.

 

 

 

 

To go with my Egg Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, which I love having anytime. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

How healthy are Eggs…..

Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.

Today’s Menu: Egg Sandwich and Hash Browns

 

 

Just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Didn’t get a lot of sleep again due to the Sinus Infection. My left ear started swelling up so I had to go back to the Family Doctor. I have infected inner ear, and it is extremely painful! They have me on 3 prescriptions and if it swells anymore I have to go to the hospital for treatment, trying to avoid that! It does feel somewhat better and the swelling isn’t quite as bad. I still have very limited hearing in my right ear though. I go back to the Doctor’s on Monday to see if I need further work done on it at the hospital. For Dinner tonight I made a Fried Egg Sandwich along with some Hash Browns.

 

Wanted something Light, Easy to Chew, and a hot meal tonight. So I made an Egg Sandwich. I haven’t made these in years! To make it all I’ll need is 2 Eggs, Salt and Pepper, a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar, a bit of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Just get a mixing cup or coffee cup and crack open both Eggs into it. Season it with the Salt and Pepper and whisk it all together.

 

 

 

Heat a small skillet on medium heat, I sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I added the Butter, and when heated added the Egg Mixture. Fry it till the bottom browns and flip it. I then added my slice of Cheese on top of it. Cook until dome, and it’s ready! You can toast the Bread if you like, I didn’t toast mine.

 

 

 

 

To go with my Egg Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Hopefully I can a full night’s sleep tonight and feeling better tomorrow.

Today’s Menu: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions w/ Hash Browns and Bush’s Grillin’ Beans (Smokehouse Tradition Beans)

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions 006
I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Went to Kroger for Mom and got some gas before coming back home. Another cool morning about 34 degrees. At least it quit raining for a while during the day. Rain moved back in later though. If its true that “April showers make May flowers” is true, we are going to be loaded with flowers! Gave Mom a hand on her Spring Cleaning the rest of the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions w/ Hash Browns and Bush’s Grillin’ Beans.

 

 

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions

 

I’m using my last package of the Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions.I had purchased a package with 24 slices. So I got the bag of 4 medallions out and let them thaw in the fridge oversight.

 

 

 

 
To prepare them I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare them I used a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated itTuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w Cut Italian Beans, Whole Potat 002 on medium heat. I then lightly Salted the Pork with Sea Salt and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Parsley. Added the Pork to the skillet and cooked it for 2 minutes a side, just started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillets! I then baked them to a medium rare, 145 degrees in the center of the medallions using a meat thermometer. Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorites. The Pork was so tender and flavorful. Seasoned just right and very moist. I’ll have to buy another package next visit to Costco I really enjoy these!

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, I always use Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley.

Then for a second side I heated up a can of Bush’s Grillin’ Smokehouse Tradition Beans. First time using these, the beans come in a sweet and smoky sauce. To prepare them just emptied the contents into a sauce pan. Heat to simmer and serve! As all the Bush’s Beans they were fantastic! I like the sauce they are in, as it says sweet and smoky. Another Bush’s product to have in the pantry. I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread

 

Fried Okeechobee Crappie w Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and 002

It’s been a rainy, windy, cool day here in West Chester, almost feels like an early Winter’s day instead of Fall! Not much going on outside in this weather. Went to see dad in rehab for a while, he’s getting a lot stronger and wanting to come home. He should be released by next Friday they told us. Back at home did some light cleaning and then hit my easy chair with the remote for an afternoon of College Football. For dinner tonight it’s my favorite fish, Crappie. I prepared Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread.

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
It’s been too long between Crappie Dinners! So I got in the freezer and grabbed a couple of bags of Okeechobee Crappie, or Specks as they call them in Florida, and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To start I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side. As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie, especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie.

 

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

To go with the Crappie I prepared some Hash Browns, Potatoes are perfect with Fish. I always use Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. Then I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Green Beans go well with any meal as far as I’m concerned. Green Beans was my favorite Vegetable growing up even.

 

 

 

I also baked a small skillet of Martha White Cornbread. Cornbread is something I think I could eat every meal. I like Cornbreada nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Crappie and Hash Browns 008

 

 

Went out this morning around 6:50 this morning to get the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out! The wind was howling, with snow flurries, and the wind chill made it feel like the mid 20’s. The high is only going up to around 40 but with the wind chill will having it feel like the 30’s. And Winter begins! Did some laundry and settled in for a day of College Football. For dinner tonight Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
I love my Fish, all Fish, but my favorite eating Fish has to be Crappie, Lake Okeechobee Crappie! But my stock of the Crappie has now ran out. Very sad when the year’s supply is gone. So I laid my last 2 bags of the Crappie out of the freezer and in to the fridge overnight to thaw. To start I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie. especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie. All out of Crappie until next year!

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout Hash Browns 006
Had the three H’s going today for our weather, Hot – Hazy – Humid. Mom picked Dad up this morning at the rehab center and brought him home for the day. We had to take him back about 3:00 though. He’s still not ready to come back home, still really weak. Went to the Kroger up the road for Mom and over in the produce they were just putting out my favorite Apple, the Honeycrisp Apple! Love these Apples, flavor packed and a good crisp Apple. They have been out of season for a while now and been buying Fuji Apples, good but nearly the size of the Honeycrisp. For dinner tonight I prepared Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout Hash Browns 001
While at Kroger the day before I noticed they had some beautiful Rainbow Trout Fillets, I knew I my dinner! First time I’ve tried it Cajun and I love Cajun so why not Cajun Rainbow Trout. To prepare it all I’ll need is; 1 Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Cajun Seasoning, and 2 Teaspoons chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 4-5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Cajun Seasoning! An easy Keeper Recipe.

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
