Today’s Menu: Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Didn’t get a lot of sleep last night, Phantom Pains kept me up. They weren’t that painful but just annoying enough to keep waking me up. After I had my Tea I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Then later I drove Mom over to spend the afternoon with Dad. I didn’t stay long, too tired. I went back home and caught up on some sleep. Then later went back to pick her up. For Dinner tonight its Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese.

 

 


For the Shrimp I prepared a box of SeaPak Jumbo Shrimp. I preheated the oven on 425°f. I then got a small baking sheet, covered with aluminum foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I arranged the frozen shrimp in single layer on the baking sheet. Then baked at 425 degrees for 13-14 minutes turning over once after 6 minutes. They came out Golden Brown and delicious. Hard to beat these always great tasting. I served them with a side of Heinz Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

 

 


While at Meijer the other day and picked up a 4 pack of the Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Egg Sandwich and Hash Browns

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 45 degrees for a high outside today. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items. On the way back I stopped by the ATM and stopped and got gas. Back home I was all caught up on everything. Did some work on the computer for a while. 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.

 

 

 


I heated 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 Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese on top of it. Cook until done, and it’s ready! You can toast the Bread if you like, I didn’t toast mine.

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

To go with my Egg Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, which I love having any meal. 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 a Diet Dr. Pepper 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Onions………

If you need only half an onion, use the top half first, because the root half will store longer in the refrigerator (it won’t sprout).

Today’s Menu: Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

 

For Breakfast on this cold Sunday Morning I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I then got out the Egg Beater’s Egg Whites and Scrambled a 1/2 cup of it, 1/2 equals 2 Eggs. Next I fried some al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon and I also used a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Put it all together and I had one delicious Breakfast Sandwich! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon I used is some of the best Bacon I’ve come across in a while. It fries up so crisp and has an excellent taste! As I said its cold, 15 degrees and a wind chill of 10 degrees. It was mostly sunny but only got up to 25 degrees. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then after Lunch I cleaned the house, vacuum and dusted. Not much else going on so I kicked back and watched some College Basketball. So for Dinner tonight I’m having Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 

Nothing like a easily made Comfort Food Dinner! Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I’m using one of my favorite Soups, Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix. I really love using all the Bear Creek Products! So delicious and easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare a package of it; In a 2 quart sauce pan bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisk in the soup mix. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste and serve! Perfect seasoning, thickened up just right, plenty of Diced Potato and a fantastic Potato flavor. The package makes 8 cups and very easy to prepare and makes one delicious Potato Soup.

 

 

 

 

To make my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. For Dessert a Jello Sugarfree Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

 

To start my day off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another beautiful Fall Day outside, 79 degrees and sunny! All caught up on inside cleaning so it was all outside work today, and a gorgeous day to do it! First got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, lot of leaves already blowing around. Next took the leaf blower and cleaned the floor of the shed and got rid of a few things no longer needed. Later I got the chairs off the deck and washed them off and stored them for the year in the shed. Done for the day so I took a ride around the neighborhood and down by the lake. For Dinner tonight another one of those Comfort Foods Dinner, Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Today’s Menu: Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg Suunyside Up, reheated the remaining piece of pork Chop, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then after Lunch I took Mom’s car to have the oil changed and then took it to washed and the inside vacuumed. Another hot and humid day out. Looks pretty good for an older car. For Dinner tonight its a Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a 1 lb. package of Ground Meijer Chicken while there the other day. I had no t had a ground Chicken Burger in a long time and it just sounded good! To make the Burger I’ll need; Pam Cooking Spray, Extra Light Olive Oil, Ground Chicken, Dried Sage (just a pinch), Sea salt, Ground Black Pepper, Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing, Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Buns.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I was able to make 4 Burgers out the package of Ground Chicken. I added just a pinch of Rubbed Dried Sage to the Chicken and formed it into 4 Chicken Patties. I got a 10″ skillet that I lightly coated with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil also. I then preheated the skillet on medium heat. I then fried the patties, 2 at a time. I fried them until the juices ran clear and I had an internal temperature reading of 165 degrees. Flipping the Burgers one time. After flipping it, with about 1 minute of frying time left I added my Cheese on it. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Bun and topped the Burger with Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing. Love the Chicken Burger! Came moist and delicious, nice flavor to it and the Sharp Cheddar and Thousand Island Dressing was perfect with it.

 

To go with my Burger, what else but Baked Fries. 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 later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Lightly seasoned with sea salt, these Julienne Fries make your everyday French fry wonder where it went wrong.

Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Hush Puppies and Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Hush Puppies and Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Nutri Grain Low Fat Eggo Waffles and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and my morning workout I started a load of laundry for Mom and then headed to Marsh and Kroger. I needed quite a few things from Meijer and then stopped by Kroger to pick up a few things for Mom. Back home, after Lunch I got out the leaf blower and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. Trimmed the vine along the driveway and then picked some Basil and Cilantro for tonight’s meal. This is the best my Herb Plants have ever grown, nice size plants. Love watching stuff grow. As a child growing up my Grandparents always live on a farm with huge fields of Vegetables. Lucky to get to see all that while growing up. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Hush Puppies and Mac and Cheese.

 

I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Florida! It’s good to have friends that also own a house off the Florida Gulf side. I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish and Love this Grouper!

 

For one side for my Grouper I prepared a box of the McCormick Hush Puppy Corn Meal Mix. First time I’ve made these and they turned out great! Just followed the easy instructions and served. I left the full instructions at the end of the post. First time I’ve had Hush Puppies in a long time, really enjoyed these!

 

 

 

 

Also to go with the Grouper prepared some Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. I normally have the regular Mac and Cheese but I seen the 50% Whole Grain at Meijer and picked up a 4 pack of them. It comes in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! Seafood and Mac and Cheese are just a natural pairing. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out and cleaned up around the deck and driveway areas. It’s another beautiful day out here, 82 degrees and mostly sunny! Headed out to Meijer, they had some items on sale I needed. Dad did good his first day back home. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

Time to satisfy that Buffalo Burger craving! I used the Wild Idea Buffalo Buffalo Burgers. I always have a couple of packages of them in the freezer so I grabbed one of the patties and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. 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. After I flipped it, I topped it with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. Lean and delicious, love these Buffalo Burgers!

 

 

 

Then 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 later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

Today’s Menu: Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 
Foggy morning out there today. So for Breakfast I made a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it started of foggy and from there a cloudy and dreary day, a high in the 40’s with rain on and off with a little sleet. My thumb I burnt is a mess, burned it pretty good. I have to change the dressing twice a day. Hope it heals up good but I think it will be scared up. Stayed home all day and caught up on some house cleaning. Also did a load of laundry for Mom. Everything done, spent the rest of the day watching the NCAA March Madness Basketball. For Dinner tonight I’m having Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 

 

It’s a Comfort Food Dinner tonight, Creamy Potato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich! I’m using one of my favorite new foods, Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix. I really love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far. So delicious and easy to prepare. I had made a package of this for Lunch the day before, this is how I got my thumb burned. I had a container of it in the fridge so I just reheated it on medium heat in a small sauce pan.

 

 

 


To prepare a package of it; In a 2 quart sauce pan bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisk in the soup mix. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste and serve! Perfect seasoning, thickened up just right, plenty of Diced Potato and a fantastic Potato flavor. The package makes 8 cups and very easy to prepare. I have several in my pantry now, trying a Minestrone Soup next.

 

 

 

To make my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. A perfect meal for a dreary day! For Dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Diced Mangos.

 

 


Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix
A favorite original Bear Creek® soup. Very creamy and delicious with a delicate blend of parsley, herbs and spices to give it a little kick.

Yields about 8 one-cup servings.
Try adding crumbled bacon, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese for variety.
While they simmer on the stove, you can smell the hearty goodness of Bear Creek® soups. They’re quick and easy to make and come in 15 delicious varieties. These soups have a homemade taste that will satisfy every appetite.
