Today’s Menu: Grilled Turkey Bratwursts and Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 81 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Walmart Garden Center looking for a few things. We have a real problem with flies this year. It’s worse this year than we have ever seen. They are so bad that it makes it tough to even use the grill. I bought a couple of the Citrusnella Candles to see that could help.  Sunny, 89 degrees, and the humidity has returned! For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Brats, Baked Fries and Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

Having the new Brats I came across at Meijer a couple of months ago, Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Premium Original Bratwurst. They are so delicious fresh! They are natural meat color instead of the usual white colored Brats.

 

 

 

 

 


I went out and started the grill. Back inside I got the Bratwursts out of the fridge and sprayed them with Pam Non Stick Spray. With the grill ready I added the Brats and shut the lid of the grill. Grilled them for about 18 minutes, turning links often.

 

 

 

 

 

The Brats came out incredible again! These are excellent Brats. Grilled up great, great tasting, and stayed firm after cooking. All good traits of Bratwursts. I’ve got a couple of packages in the freezer! Served them on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Bun and topped them with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

 

 

 


To go with my Brats I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries for us. 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 bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Turkey Bratwursts and Baked Fries

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow decaf Green Tea. Hot, humid, and rain on and off all day. After I ate I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Later on I took Mom with me out to our home in Ross, Ohio. Nice going out there from time to time, we really miss living out there. Lot of farm land but not too far out from different parts of Hamilton, Fairfield, and Colerain. They actually some how got their corn crop out and it should be producing before too long. Amazing they were able to plant with all the rain we have had all year. Stopped at a couple of Farmer’s Markets while out there and Mom picked up some Sweet Corn and Tomatoes. Sure was nice going back home! So back home for Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Brats and Baked Fries.

Italian Gnocchi in Pasta Sauce w/ Turkey Italian Sausages

Today’s Menu: Italian Gnocchi in Pasta Sauce w/ Turkey Italian Sausages

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with Ortega Chipotle Taco Sauce and a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees and humid outside, rain showers moving in later. I had to have the gutters cleaned out today. They needed it bad! I had bought a small can of Black Paint and I started repainting the trim of the shed. I’ll get the areas I can get to and my neighbor is coming over to get the higher parts that I can’t reach. Just certain things that out of your reach in a wheelchair. For Dinner tonight its Italian Gnocchi in Pasta Sauce w/ Turkey Italian Sausages.

 

 

 

I started preparing the Sausage first. The Gnocchi is done in a few minutes. I used Johnsonville Turkey Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. I used these for the first time a couple of weeks ago and love them! Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in a 3-quart saucepan. When done I removed them from the skillet to a plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces and sit aside until the Gnocchi was ready.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Gnocchi I’m using Kroger Private Selection Italian Gnocchi with Potato (Northern Italian Dumplings crafted with Potatoes and W heat). For my Pasta Sauce I’m using my favorite, LaRosa’s Family Recipe Original Pasta Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Gnocchi is super easy to prepare. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it with about 3/4 full of water, Salted the water with Morton’s Lite Salt. Heated the water on high to a boil. Then added the package of Gnocchi. Boiled for 3 minutes until the Gnocchi floated to the top. Removed from the heat, then into a strainer. From the strainer to a large bowl where I salted it and added the Larosa’s Sauce. Stirred until well mixed and the added the sliced Italian Sausages.

 

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl topped with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and a sprinkle of Dried Oregano. The Gnocchi was nice and firm and tender. Plus that Johnsonville Italian Sausage is just incredible! Just so many dishes that this goes with or just to have the Sausage by itself! So glad they have come out with this line Turkey Sausages. One delicious and hearty meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 


I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. More rain and thunderstorms with a high of 78 degrees and humid. Mom needed a few things from Jungle Jim’s International Market so we went there about 8:00 this morning. It gets crowded there and being in a mobilty cart it pays to get there early to get a cart and parking spot! As always I’m like a small child in a candy store when I go! They have my favorite Deli, Produce, Meat and Seafood departments. There’s always something new at that store. We went at the right time, as we got home a monsoon hit! Timing is everything! For Dinner tonight it’s Leftovers, I’m heating up the Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread leftover from last night. No way I was going to let these leftovers go to waste! I’ll be having this again before long. I’ve left the post from last night for the description and cooking directions. Enjoy!

 

 

For the Dirty Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice. The Mix includes a Long Grain Rice Mix with Vegetables and Spices. I added the Sausage. Really looking forward to this meal!

 

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; I first prepared the Turkey Sausage. I used Johnsonville Turkey Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. First time using these, and they look delicious! Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in a 3-quart saucepan. Removed them from the skillet to plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces and returned them to the skillet. When done I drained the fat. Stirred in 2 1/2 cups of Water and the Rice Mix into the saucepan until it was well blended. Brought it to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and covered. Simmered for 25 minutes until the Rice was tender.

 

 

 


Removed the sauce pan from the heat. Let it stand for 5 minutes, fluffed the Rice up and served! Delicious, the Sausage is so good and Rice and Mix all made some fantastic Dirty Rice and Sausage! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I toasted a couple of Eggo’s – Nutri Grain Waffles. I also fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Had my morning cup of bigelow Decaf Green Tea, as always! More rain and thunderstorms also gusty winds, high of 83 degrees. They are saying we are in for a lot of rain the next 3 – 4 days, about 3-5 inches! They were saying due to all the rains we’ve had this Spring that none of the Farmers have been able to get their crops out and it’s too late now for some crops to be planted. What a shame! So for Dinner tonight I’m preparing Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

Partly cloudy and 81 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a couple of items for Mom and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Cleaned the house and did laundry. Had to stick close to the house today. Mom is really sore from the fall she took. But we are very thankful she didn’t break anything! For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Brats, Baked Fries and Beans.

Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links

Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links

 

 

To start my morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites that I topped with a few shakes of Ortega Chipotle Taco Sauce and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom had the cataract taken off her left eye this morning. Mom’s cousin went with her for this one. So after Breakfast I headed off to Kroger for a few items for myself and Mom. Back home I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Later did a load of laundry and cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight its Breakfast! I prepared Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links.

 

I think I’m going with a Breakfast Menu for the next 2 or 3 Dinners, it just sounds good! Time to mix it up a bit for Dinner. I’ll be using Pioneer Peppered White Gravy Mix, Pillsbury Grands Junior Biscuits, and Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also had a glass of Kroger 2% White Milk to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered White Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! To prepare it I get a small sauce pan and give it a light spray of Pam non Stick Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. I add a 1 1/2 cups of Cold Water to the pan and heat it on high to rolling boil. As that is heating up I preheated the oven for the Pillsbury Biscuits and I mixed the Gravy. In a measuring cup I added a 1/2 cup of Cold Water and then added the Gravy Mix to the Water and stirred until it smooth. When the Water was boiling I added the Gravy Mix. Turned down the heat a notch or two and started stirring the Mix and Water. Continued stirring until it started to thicken. Removed it from the heat and continued to stir it for about 30 seconds. I put the lid on the sauce pan and set it aside until I was ready to use it.

 

Time to bake the Pillsbury Grands Junior Biscuits! Took a small baking pan and sprayed a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray on it. Added the Biscuits and popped the pan in the oven. I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

 

 

 

Finally as the Biscuits were baking I prepared the Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Another delicious and easily prepared item. I buy these all the time, my favorite. I took a small skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Cooking Spray. Heated it on medium heat. Cooked them for 9 minutes, turning them several times. I love these Sausage Links! I prepared the whole package, Mom is having the Breakfast Dinner with me. Her surgery went great, now both eyes are done!

 

 

 

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good, Mom really enjoyed it she had not had Breakfast or Lunch. Also had a glass of 2% White Milk. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w/ White Rice

 

 

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w White Rice 010
To start my day I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with a Poached Egg, I love Poached Eggs! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not quite as hot but the high humidity is still there! Having some yard work done today. Wish I was able to get out there and do it but sometimes you are limited in a wheel chair. I stayed in and did some housecleaning, dusting, vacuum, and such. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w/ White Rice.

 

 
Came across a new item at Meijer a while back and prepared it for the first time and loved it! Tonight I’m having the Johnsonville Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs. Meijer has 3 different kinds but I wanted to give the Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs again. You can grill them or bake them, so I’m baking mine. The Kabobs come fresh and in a sealed package of 4 seasoned and skewered Kabobs.

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 004
To prepare them I preheated the oven to 425°F. Placed the Kabobs on foil-lined backing pan, coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Baked for 15 minutes, turning once. And done! How easy is this, a one pan cleanup. Johnsonville has it’s self another winning dish! The Chicken is moist and so tender with nice seasoning. The easiest Kabob I’ve ever prepared and one of the tastiest!

 

 

 

Spicy Baked Buttermilk Chicken Tenders w White Rice and Asparagu 014
Then for the a side I prepared some Uncle Ben’s White Rice. I usually have Brown Rice but the White Rice just sounded good! Easy to prepare; Just bring Water and Rice to a boil. Reduce heat and cover for 20 minutes and done! Rice is so good! Really like White Rice, just wish it was lower in the carbs. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte Cling Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice

 
Went outside last night about 10:00 and was able to watch several Fireworks Shows around the area. A lot of the Firework Shows were moved up because of heavy rain prediction for the 4th of July (Monday). Mom went to ChurchSweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 013 this morning and I stayed home to keep an eye on Dad and it was house cleaning day today. I made some Pancakes for Breakfast this morning. Made them with Bisquick Heart Smart. Also fried up 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon. After Lunch went over to see a friend of mine, he had bought a new car and he wanted me to stop by and check it out. Amazing what the new cars are equipped with now! For dinner tonight staying with the Chicken. So last night it Chicken and Fries and tonight It’s Chicken in a different way, tonight it’s Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice.

 

 

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 002

Came across a new item at Meijer yesterday and couldn’t wait to give it a try! Tonight I’m trying the new Johnsonville Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs. Meijer had 3 different kinds but I wanted to give the Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs first. You can grill them or bake them, so I’m baking mine. Our grill died and I haven’t replaced it. So the Kabobs come fresh and in a sealed package of 4 seasoned and skewered Kabobs.

 

 

 

 

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 004
To prepare them I preheated the oven to 425°F. Placed the Kabobs on foil-lined backing pan coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Baked for 15 minutes, turning once. And done! How easy is this, a one pan cleanup. Johnsonville has it’s self another winning dish! The Chicken is moist and so tender with nice seasoning. The easiest Kabob I’ve ever prepared! These would be great for parties or grilling out for the family. Looking forward to trying the other types.

To go with the Kabobs I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Whole Grain Brown Rice. To prepare it just microwave. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat for 90 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy.

 

 

 

 

I wanted something else to go with everything, something light and fresh. So I went with a Fruit Medley. So out of the pantry I grabbed a can of Del Monte Diced Mango and a can of Dole Pineapple Chunks. I then I chopped up someSweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 001 Cilantro. I opened the cans of Mango and Pineapples up and drained the Juice from each one in separate bowl. I’m going to use juices to flavor the dish. Place the Mango, Pineapple, and Cilantro in a mixing bowl. Stir in the Juice of 1 of the fruits or combinations of all the Juices, no certain amount just adjust it to your own tastes. Stir, and cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. Turned out great, it hit the spot! Fresh and Fruity, nice side. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Wheat Bread

 

 

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 008
We had avoided the freezing rain they had predicted but about 8:00 this morning it started getting foggy and the fog mist started freezing on the roads. Did’t last long though, we ended up getting some rain later. Not having a lot of luck with my car. Just got it back from a small hose leak and now there’s a leak on the other side of the engine, guess it happens when the car has well over 140,000 miles on it. I need a new car or good used one, and SUV type so I can get my wheelchair in and out of the car easily by myself. But it costs money, which is tough to save when your on a fixed income. Anyway I had planned a new Chicken Dish for dinner but I failed to lay the Chicken out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge overnight. Good job Mark! But no problem because I have some incredible leftovers to reheat! Tonight it’s Leftover Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo w/ Wheat Bread.

 

 

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gumbo 003

This is the post from last night’s dinner on how to prepare this dish. To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, Johnsonville Andouille Sausage, and a bag of Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. Very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, sliced the Johnsonville Andouille Sausage into bite size pieces and added them to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for 10-15 minutes. Then I added Extra Large Shrimp and simmered another 3-6 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turned out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Enough leftover for my dinner tonight! I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Frozen Greek Yogurt.
