Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

 

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 a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a couple of items and then picked up Breakfast for Mom. Outside 79 degrees with rain showers early then clearing up for the day. After Lunch I got the cart out and sprayed for weeds around the house and shed. Everything done, I kicked back and took a short nap. I’m not sure what’s wrong, just feeling bad. Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food, Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

 


We love Chili and Cheese Nachos around here! To make them I’ll need: Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their selves, 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! Especially love the Jalapenos, nice mild heat!

 

To prepare I preheat 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 sauce pan, 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 the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. I love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and an Ice Water to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 


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 a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We have a high of 41 degrees and cloudy out today. I drove Mom and Dad to the Doctor’s, Dad had a check-up. He’s to the point where we can barely get him in and out of the car. All we can do is try to keep him comfortable here at home. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food, Chili and Cheese Nachos.

Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage Pizza

Today’s Menu: Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I then served the Poached Egg on top of the English Muffin. 61 degrees and sunny today! But the rain is moving back in overnight and for the next 2 days. Certain parts of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are flooded from the Ohio River. I live North of Cincinnati and we’ve had a lot of rain but not a whole lot of flooding. So after Breakfast I went Menard’s and Home Depot to price some outdoor yard items, getting ready for Spring! For Dinner tonight; Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Lean Turkey Sausage.

 

I had picked up a package of Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread at Meijer and the package in the freezer along with the Jennie – O Sausage Roll. I laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. For my toppings for the Pizza I’m using Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausages, Black Olives, Green Olives, Oscar Mayer Hickory Smoked Bacon Bits, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Traditional Pizza Sauce.

 

 

 

I first Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam No Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I opened up a roll of the Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausage. I cut off a slice of it and crumbled up. Added it to the heated skillet and fried Sausage Crumbles. When they were browned and heated through removed them from the skillet into a small bowl until ready to use.

 

 

 


The oven was heated up and I got the Naan Bread ready. I used a small baking sheet, lined it with foil, and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. I lined the 4 Naan Breads up on the baking sheet. I then brushed a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive oil on the top of them. I then baked then for about 2 minutes. Pulled the sheet out of the oven and let the Naan Bread cool for 5 minutes.

 

 

 

When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the Ragu Pizza Sauce. Next slices of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni. Then the Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Crumbles, next the Black and Green Sliced Olives, Oscar Mayer Bacon Bits, and finally the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

 

 

 

 

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 8 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pulled the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. With the first bite I knew the Naan Bread was a perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust had excellent taste and baked up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizzas. Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. I’ll have to get a couple of packs of the Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread and keep them in the freezer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

Ancient Grain Mini Naan

Made with ancient grains, quinoa, spelt, buckwheat, kamut and a touch of honey! These sweeter, smaller naan are sized just right to fit in your toaster. Perfect for breakfast and snack time. 4 per pack.

Today’s Menu: Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg, fried a few slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a rainy Thursday morning! It started raining overnight and a few showers this morning. Cloudy and 51 degrees for a high. Stayed in most of the day and got some things done around the house. For Dinner tonight; Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I picked up a package of Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread at Meijer earlier in the week. And I’m using them to make some Mini Pizzas. For my toppings I’m using Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages, Mushrooms, Black Olives, Green Olives, Oscar Mayer Hickory Smoked Bacon Bits, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Traditional Pizza Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a medium size skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got 2 Jennie – O Sweet Italian Sausages and cut the end off each Sausage . Then squeezed the Sausage Meat out of the casing and formed that into small chunks. With the skillet heated I fried the Sausage pieces. When they were browned and heated through removed them from the skillet into a small bowl until ready to use.

 

The oven was heated up and I got the Naan Bread ready. I used a small baking sheet, lined it with foil, and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. I lined the 4 Naan Breads up on the baking sheet. I then brushed a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive oil on the top of them. I then baked then for about 2 minutes. Pulled the sheet out of the oven and let the Naan Bread cool for 5 minutes.

 

 

 

When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the Ragu Pizza Sauce. Next slices of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni. Then the Jennie – O Turkey Sweet Italian Sausage pieces, next the Black and Green Sliced Olives, sliced Mushrooms, Oscar Mayer Bacon Bits, and finally the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

 

 

 

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 8 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pulled the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. With the first bite I knew the Naan Bread was a perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust had excellent taste and baked up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizzas. Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. I’ll have to get a couple of packs of the Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread and keep them in the freezer.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

 

To start my day off I toasted a couple of Eggo Nutrigrain Waffles. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not quite as cold this morning, 30 degrees. Had a high of 45 degrees and mostly sunny, not bad for this time of year. Mom went to Church and stayed home and watched Dad. So I cleaned the house and did a load of laundry. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway off, still a lot of leaves blowing around. Had everything done and caught up on some programs I had recorded. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food, Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

 

We love Chili and Cheese Nachos around here! It’s been a while since I’ve made any and they sure sounded good for Dinner tonight. To make them I’ll need: Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their selves, 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! Especially love the Jalapenos, nice mild heat!

 

To prepare I preheat 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 sauce pan, 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 the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. I love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu Hormel Turkey Chili w/Beans

 

I had a Dinner planned out but due to a Family Emergency I had to go with something quick and easy. My Dad fell last night around 8:30 and we were at the Hospital until 2:00 this morning. He’s doing fine and they sent him back home with us. The time I finally got to bed was around 4:00 this morning. So something quick and easy was Dinner tonight. I prepared a can of Hormel Turkey Chili w/Beans. Topped it with some Sargento Reduced Calorie Shredded Sharp Cheddar and a side of Oyster Crackers. See everyone tomorrow, take care!

Today’s Menu: “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning something a little different, Wild Boar Bacon! I had ordered some from SayersBrook Bison Ranch and just received my order yesterday afternoon. Couldn’t wait to try it so I’m having it now. The slices were not as long as most Bacon Slices, but it made no difference. It fried up as normal Bacon and tasted great! Wild Boar Bacon has a richer taste and is leaner than Pork Bacon. Really enjoyed this and will have it again. Along with the Bacon I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and my usual cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

 

After Breakfast did a few chores around the house and finished up a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch I went out to the shed and pulled out the rest of the deck furniture and cleaned it up. Rain moved back in again, a high in the 60’s. For dinner tonight I prepared “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

It’s Sloppy Joe Night tonight for dinner! A delicious and a super easy meal to make. To make the Sloppy Joes I used a 1 lb. package of Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round, 1 jar of Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce, and Kroger Lite Wheat Buns. Using Buffalo, or Bison, instead of Beef will give your Sloppy Joe a deeper and richer flavor. Really looking forward to tonight’s Dinner, been a while since I’ve had these!

 

 

 

 

Using a large skillet to brown the Buffalo in I seasoned it with Morton’s Salt Substitute, Ground Black Pepper, and Roasted Ground Cumin. After the Buffalo was browned and no longer pink I added the jar of Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce stirring and making sure the Sauce and Buffalo was well mixed. Simmer until it’s warm, and served. I love the Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce. It’s a good thick sauce well seasoned with Spices, Onions, Green Peppers among other ingredients (70 calories and 15 carbs per serving). I served them this time on Kroger 100% Whole Wheat Sliders Mini Buns. Sloppy Joes make a perfect Slider! Another delicious dish using Wild Idea Buffalo.

 

For a side I baked some 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. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn.

 

 

 

 

 
Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce

Richer and Thicker and Far From Ordinary

Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce is as distinctive as its name. Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce has a hint of barbecue flavor and is richer and thicker than other sloppy joe sauces.

Since its beginning in 1985, there’s been one very graphic way to show the thick and rich texture of Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce: the “drip test.” When you hold up a sloppy joe made with Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce, there are no drips. It’s that rich and thick.

Wild Boar Uncured Bacon

Wild Boar
A European delicacy enjoyed for centuries for its unique flavor

Wild Boar is sometimes referred to as “the wild version of the other white meat.” Replacing traditional ground pork with ground wild boar can greatly increase the flavour of almost any dish. Wild Boar meat tastes slightly sweet and nutty due to its diet of foraged nuts and other foods from the forest.

It is increasingly sought after by chefs and consumers looking for a unique flavor. although you may expect it to resemble pork wild boar is a dark red meat. Unlike its domestic cousin, wild boar is also very lean and low in cholesterol. The meat is darker in color with a distinct, with a flavorful taste but not gamey. Wild boar is an easy alternative to beef and pork for those who want food that is good for them without sacrificing taste and quality

Wild boar is not prone to illness or disease. Our wild boar meat is chemical free without any added hormones. No antibiotics, No steroids, All natural wholesome meat.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Shredded Pork Sandwiches w/ Potato Chips

 

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Lot of rain out there today. Showers on and off all day, had a high of 55 degrees. Good day to stay in and I did! So today I cleaned the house, vacuum and dusted. Then cleaned the fridge and oven in the Kitchen. Later on caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight i prepared BBQ Shredded Pork Sandwiches w/ Potato Chips.

 

 

 

I had used the Hormel Slow Simmered Pork Roast Au Jus but it had been a while since I’ve used it. It comes fully cooked in a sealed microwavable plastic tray. To prepare it first remove the outer sleeve and place vacuum-sealed tray in microwave, do not pierce or vent film. Then heat on high for 4 minutes. Self-venting film expands as it heats, forming a bubble to lock in flavor and juiciness. Let stand for 2 minutes. Peel back film and serve! Excellent Pork!

 

 


I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I topped the Pork with some Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. For a side I had some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips. Also had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Vanilla Ice Cream Cup.

Today’s Menu: Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast on this 1st day of April I had a Poached Egg that I served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. They moved Dad from the hospital back over to the Rehab Center he was just at last week. They are going to try more therapy and if that doesn’t work he will have to stay in an assisted living center, hope it doesn’t come to that. So after Breakfast I went to Kroger and picked up a few snacks that Dad likes. Then after Lunch I went on over to see Dad. Back home took it easy and watched a few shows that I had recorded. For my dinner tonight I’m preparing a Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza.

 

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s Market the other day I picked up a package of Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread. I had used these once before and really liked the way they came out. It’s pregrilled so it’s ready to eat or reheat. What I liked about it was they were the perfect size to make mini Pizzas with, plus they’re only 140 calories and 24 net carbs for a whole one (one serving)!

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Pizzas I’ll need; the Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, Sliced Black and Green Olives, Ragu Pizza Sauce, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

 

 

 


To prepare it I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. The Johnsonville Turkey Sausage is precooked so all I had to do was heat up in a small skillet for 5 minutes on medium heat. Removed from the heat and sliced the Links up into small bite pieces. I then got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I then took one of the Flatbreads and brushed a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the top of them.

 

 

 

 

Next I made my Pizza! I started by spreading 2 tablespoons of the Ragu Pizza Sauce across the top of the Flatbread. Then added the sliced Olives, Turkey sausage, Mozzarella Cheese, and topped it all with Turkey Pepperoni. Then I made a second one the same way. Laid the Flatbreads on the baking sheet and put it in the oven. I baked them for about 8 minutes, until the Cheese was melted and all items heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

The Flatbread provides a perfect Crust (Pizza Pie). It browned up great and had a fantastic flavor with a nice crunch! I’ll have to try different toppings, like Ham or Chicken, using the Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread. I’ve found a good Pizza Pie Crust and it’s only 140 calories per serving! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Green Beans

 

 

 


This morning for Breakfast I had a Poached egg, 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Links, toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit warmer out today and less windy, high of 57 degrees. Did a few things around the house then after Lunch went outside and got a few things out of storage from the shed. Pulled out some of the outdoor chairs and table and cleaned them up and also repaired a couple of the chairs. Back inside finished some laundry up for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Green Beans.

 

 

It’s very seldom that I have Beef but when I was at Walmart the other day this just looked good and I had not had this in quite some time, a package of Hormel Slow Simmered Beef Roast Au Jus. And made into a an Open Face Roast Beef sounded real good! It comes packaged in a sealed microwave container and easy to prepare. Start by removing it from the outer sleeve and place the tray in microwave, do not pierce or vent film. Heat on high for 4 minutes or until hot. the self-venting film expands as it heats, forming a bubble to lock in flavor and juiciness. Let it stand for 2 minutes. Peel back and serve. Can’t get much easier and it’s really delicious. Plenty of Beef with excellent flavor. All I added was a bit Sea Salt to it. I lightly toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and served the Beef on top of the Toast. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Mushroom Gravy that I topped it with.

 

 

 

For a side I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Topped them with some of the Mushroom Gravy.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I could have Beans every meal, love them! For Dessert later tonight I’ll be having a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
