Warmer this morning than it’s been in a while, 47 degrees. But showers most of the day and into the mid 50’s. Did a few chores around the house and then went up to spend the afternoon with Dad. Back home, for dinner tonight I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs.

Today’s Menu: Egg Maccheroncini w/ Turkey Meatballs

 

egg-maccheroncini-w-turkey-meatballs-012
I went out to fetch the morning papers this morning around 7 am. and it’s a bit chilly out there this morning, about 40 degrees. Scampered back inside to cook up some Breakfast. This morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered), fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage, Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs (topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar), and a cup of the Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a high in the 60’s and partly sunny. Went to McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts to pick up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast for them. Dropped their Breakfast off and ran a couple of errands and up to the assisted living center to see a friend of mine. Still not doing very good, not sure if he’s going to recover. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Egg Maccheroncini w/ Turkey Meatballs.

 

egg-maccheroncini-w-turkey-meatballs-002
Kroger has been featuring Italian Foods for the past few weeks. An item I ran across and decided to try was Egg Maccheroncini Pasta Panarese. I haven’t found a lot of information or history of this product but here’s what I did find; Made using the traditional methods of bronze drawing and slow-drying, Pasta Panarese has a rough texture that will help the absorption of water whilst boiling, and will allow a better adherence of the sauce. The result is an evenly cooked, full flavored product much different from the industrial pasta production. It comes in lovely transparent packaging and is the ideal present for a foodie friend … It The Pasta is produced from top quality Durum Wheat Semolina grown in Tuscany. It’s made with 30% Egg. It looked good and only contains 160 calories and 30 net carbs per serving which isn’t too bad for Pasta.

 

egg-maccheroncini-w-turkey-meatballs-008
For the meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs. I’ve been using the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs for quite a few years now. The Meatballs are good size, always fresh, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. I heated them up in a sauce pan in a jar of Ragu Super Chunky Mushroom Sauce.

 

 

 

egg-maccheroncini-w-turkey-meatballs-010
To prepare Pasta all I’ll need is McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Italian Seasoning. According to the package instructions it said to cook the Pasta 7-9 minutes. So I used a large sauce pot, filled half way with water. I brought the water to a rolling boil and seasoned the water with the Sea Salt. The Pasta itself is a flat Noodle and comes in, what looks like, small haystack bundles. There was 6 of the bundles in the package and I prepared 3 of them. Added the 3 bundles to the pot and cooked them for 9 minutes, gently stirring them frequently. After 9 minutes removed the pot from heat and drained the Pasta. Put the Pasta into a large bowl and seasoned it with a bit more of the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Italian Seasoning. to serve I topped with Ragu Mushroom Pasta Sauce, Fresh Shaved, Turkey Meatballs, and Parmesan Cheese. Some of the best Pasta I’ve ever had! It tasted so fresh and the Seasoning, Meatballs, and Sauce worked great with it. I purchased a couple of packages of it, I’m not sure if it’s limited time product at Kroger. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w Baked Crinkle Fries 007
To start the morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger and picked up a few items for Mom and then went to McDonald’s and picked up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. Had a thunderstorm about dawn and rain on and off during the day, so not a whole lot going on outside. Finished up some chores herein the house and then kicked back for afternoon of College Football. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

 

Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w Baked Crinkle Fries 001
I had used Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs yesterday for my Spaghetti and Meatballs. I’ve been using the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs for quite a few years now. The Meatballs are good size, always fresh, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. Plus they’re a perfect size for Hoagie or Hot Dog Buns, I used the Hot Dog Buns.

For my Pasta Sauce I used the LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and mine, it’s got a perfect combination of a robust sauce with a hint of sweetness to it. To prepare it I took a medium size sauce pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Emptied the can of Sauce in the pan and turned the heat on medium. Then I added my Turkey Meatballs and covered the pan and let it simmer until both the Sauce and Meatballs were heated through.

 

 

 

Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w Baked Crinkle Fries 003
For my Cheese I used a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Provolone Cheese and for the Bun I used a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun. You can use Hoagie Buns but to save on calories and carbs I usually just use Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. To assemble; open the Bun up, put the slice of Provolone Cheese on it, the Meatballs and Sauce, and top it with a few shakes of McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Love these Meatball Sandwiches! The Larosa’s Sauce just seems to bring the Sandwich together! Sauce is incredible, Turkey Meatballs flavorful and meaty, and the Provolone is perfect with Pasta sauces.

 

 

Ore Ida Crinkle Fries4_crop
For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries and had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 

 

Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs 003
I only had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning, not much of an appetite this morning. After my Tea I went to Meijer for a few items I needed. A bit warmer today, 86 degrees with some humidity later in the afternoon. Took my car up to the local car wash and had it cleaned, much needed. Then stopped by the bank and got gas before coming home. Not a whole lot to do today so I caught up on some little jobs in and around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs.

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghetti

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?

People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and ronzonidiabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.

Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.

Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.

Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.

Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 
To jump start my day I made one our favorites, Skillet Potatoes and Ham 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 Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs 004Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Beautiful morning out, and NO RAIN! Sunny with a high near 70 degrees. I stayed home all day and caught up on some house cleaning and yard work. It was dusting and ran the vacuum inside and outside got the cart out pulled some weeds out of Mom’s flower beds and got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the house. I don’t know how we always end up with all the leaves, limbs, and blowing trash. Everything done took a ride on the cart around the neighborhood and enjoyed the sunshine! For dinner tonight its Spaghetti and Meatballs with a fresh baked Italian Bread Loaf.

Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w Baked Crinkle Fries 007
I had a Simple Truth Breakfast Sandwich w/ Canadian Bacon for Breakfast and then I had an early Dermatologist appointment. My 6 month check up. Not a bad check up but now I have to back in next Thursday and have a mole removed he was concerned about, hopefully it will come back negative for any type cancer. I always panic a bit when they find something, especially with my past history of Melanoma Cancer. Hoping for the best! Back home finished up some laundry for Mom and then I went to the hospital to see a friend of mine. He had a series of Mini Strokes and he’s not doing too good. So I spent most of the afternoon with him and his family. For dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

Today’s Menu: Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice

 

 

After a light breakfast I took Mom up to Kroger so she could pick up a few items and while there they had Coffee Makers on sale so I picked one up for Mom and Dad for Christmas. They’ve needed a new for a long time. I’ve never Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 010been a Coffee drinker, Green Tea is about it. I also stopped by McDonald’s so she could pick their Breakfast up. Outside it was in the 50’s and cloudy early, as day went on rain moved in. We have cooler weather moving in for the weekend they say, high in the 30’s Saturday. The hospital called and I going Tuesday morning for my finger surgery. Shouldn’t been in there but about 20 minutes. I’m having the cyst removed and they have to do it at the Hospital due to possible infection. Anyway not much else going on today. For dinner tonight something new, I prepared Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice.

 

 
Wanted something different tonight so it’s Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 002Chestnuts, and White Rice. I had seen the Sweet and Sour Meatballs on an episode of Pioneer Woman so I thought I would do a version of that for dinner. Wasn’t sure what to have with it so I raided the pantry and came out with the Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice. I had the Sugar Snap Peas in a container in the fridge. I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs, La Choy Sweet Sour Sauce, Kroger fresh Sugar Snap Peas, 1 can of Dole Pineapple Tidbits, 1 can of Sliced water Chestnuts, and Uncle Ben’s White Rice.

 

 

Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 003
To prepare the Meatballs; I heated up a medium size skillet on medium heat (sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray). Added the Turkey Meatballs. The meatballs are precooked so all you have to do is reheat them. So I added then to the skillet and topped them with La Choy Sweet Sour Sauce. I let them simmer, turning them several times, for 15 minutes; until they were heated through. Se the skillet aside, putting the lid on the skillet.

I then took another medium size skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Heated this on medium heat also. As the skillet was heating I opened up the Sliced Water Chestnuts, draining the can of all the liquid. I then opened up the can of Dole Pineapple Tidbits, I drained the juice from the can and reserving it in a small bowl. The Sugar Snap Peas come in a sealed plastic container, just cut it open and gave the Peas a quick wash with water.

 

 
So the skillet is heated and I first add the Water Chestnuts, they take the longest to get done. Cooked them for aboutSweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 006 10 minutes, stirring often. I then added Sugar Snap Peas, these don’t take long at all. Stirring the Peas and Chestnuts together. I turned the heat down to low and added the Pineapple Tidbits and the reserved Pineapple Juice. The amount of juice you add is up to your preference. I added about 1/4 of the juice. Continued cooking for another 5 minutes; turned the heat off and put the lid on the skillet. To prepare the Uncle Ben’s White Rice is the easy part. It comes in a microwavable package; just heat for 90 seconds and serve! I love Uncle Ben’s Rice, I don’t care if you boil it or microwave it always turns out perfect.

 

 
So to serve this, in a bowl, I made a bed of the White Rice. Topped it with Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, and Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 011Pineapple Tidbits. The topped that with the Turkey Meatballs, and chow down! This made one delicious dish! The Turkey Meatballs were incredible. The Meatballs absorbed all that Sweet and Sour Sauce and just made the Meatballs pop with flavor. Then you have a mixture of Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, and Pineapple Tidbits. All just had such a fantastic flavor, the Pineapple Juice just tied all 3 ingredients together. With the bed of White Rice it made everything perfect, Rice is good with any dish! I’ll have to add this to the “Keeper Recipes” I had a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 

Spaghetti and Meatballs 004

We have a mostly overcast day here in West Chester today, high around 70 degrees. Cooler temps and rain moving in for the weekend. Had Breakfast and the morning workout and then headed out to Costco. If you use their electric mobility chairs, like myself, you learn to go shopping early so you can grab a fully charged chair. Mom needed a few Pharmacy items and needed some Naturemade Supplements. I also picked up 4 cases of canned goods for our Church, they have meals for the homeless once a week. Also picked up a couple of cases for the local Free Food Center here in West Chester. I also bought 2 48 pack snack boxes for the Cancer Treatment Center here in West Chester. I went through Cancer Treatment there and to have a small snack during the treatment seems to take your mind off it and provides taste, sometimes certain treatments leaves a bad taste so the snacks help. It would be so nice to heat one of the lotteries and just see how much good you can do with it and how many lives you could change. Maybe one day! For dinner tonight it was comfort food, Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs.

 

Spaghetti and Meatballs 002

 

I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti, my favorite Pasta. Cooks up great and an excellent tasting Pasta. It’s 180 calories and 35 net carbs per serving. Then for my Meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are good size, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and their 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. For my Pasta Sauce I used Ragu Mushroom Sauce and topped with some Kroger Private Selection Shaved Parmesan Cheese. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread.

 

 
To prepare the dish; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. In a sauce pan I add my Meatballs and Ragu Sauce, heated on medium low until heated through. In a large bowl I added the finished Spaghetti, the Sauce and Meatballs and mixed and served. Topped the Spaghetti with he Shaved Parmesan Cheese. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghetti

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?

People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and ronzonidiabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.

Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.

Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.

Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.
