Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees and 7unny out, high humidity. Well my morning didn’t start off very good. I went out at 7:10 this morning to get the paper. I wasn’t thinking and started to pick the paper up while facing downhill, bad choice. The chair lunged forward and I cam out of the chair and rolled down the hill a bit. My neighbor seen it and called 911 and the came out and helped me back up to the chair. I had a lot of blood from my arm, elbow and knee. My Knee was busted real good. But they patched me up and I was almost fine. I’m really sore right now though. Dumb mistake on my part, I know better than to do that! Anyway to sore to put out a lot of effort so it’s Leftovers tonight! For my Dinner tonight I reheat the Leftover Shrimp and Tukey Sausage Gumbo from the other night. I’ve left the original post from the other night for description. Take Care and Stay Safe, not like me!

 

Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, the Rice, Spices, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage makes the perfect Gumbo! Plus the leftovers are just as good if not better! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

It’s very easy to prepare, it takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered for another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Rice, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches also. I love this Gumbo! Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Penn Station Subs

 

Nothing for Breakfast. I had to be at the Hospital at 7:00 this morning for my Scans. They injected me with the dye then they took the Scans. They said they should have the results at the Doctor’s Office by tomorrow, we’ll see. Praying for nothing serious. 91 degrees and sunny out today, somewhat humid out. Back home I trimmed some vines for an elderly neighbor of ours. They started growing all over her driveway. Then I sprayed for weeds at our house and a couple of neighbors. Did a few chores around the house. So the Kitchen is closed again. And with the Kitchen shutdown it’s Penn Station Dagwood and Reuben tonight Leftovers!

 

Lazy this afternoon so I had to order out. We really enjoy Penn Station Subs, so Subs it is! I ordered a couple of Subs for us.

The Fresh Cut Fries were good too! Great Job as always Penn Station! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Breyers Carb Smart Vanilla Icecream. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 78 degrees and cloudy out today. Rain moving in later. I watered all the Flowers and the Garden Boxes. My Tomatoes and Peppers both look great, buds on all of them. I bought a Hanging Strawberry Plan and it’s been producing all kinds of Strawberries! For Dinner tonight I prepared the Leftover Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries. I’ll never let these Leftovers go to waste! Way too Delicious to waste. I just heated the Leftovers in a skillet on low heat. I’ve left the original post from last night below for description and instructions. Enjoy! Take Care and Stay Safe out there.

 

To make this Delicious Mini Sub I’ll be using a Meijer Boneless Pork Tenderloin, Pennsylvania Dutchman Sliced Mushrooms, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, and Perfection Mini Sub White Roll.

 

I love Pork Tenderloin! I purchased Pork Tenderloin from Meijer the yesterday. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it, preheat the oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

I let the Pork rest for 5 minutes or so before slicing. I then sliced the Tenderloin into thin slices. After I finished slicing it I let it marinate in its own juices until ready to use. Wow, what a Pork Tenderloin! It was so tender and juicy with flavor that was incredible.

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries that I served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Tenderloin….
Pork tenderloin is one of the leanest, most tender cuts of meat on the market, so it can also be a little spendy. Pork loin, on the other hand, can often be a bargain choice if you’re looking for a tender cut of meat that cooks well for a crowd. Pork tenderloin and other loin cuts are excellent sources of protein, thiamine, vitamin B6, phosphorus and niacin and good sources of potassium, riboflavin and zinc.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

To start our morning off I baked a small roll of Pillsbury Buttery Biscuits, fried up some Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Patties, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love these as a Breakfast Sandwich, the Patties are the perfect size for Biscuits. Mostly Sunny and 70 degrees out today! I had to have Mom at the Doctors to see if they were able to rid of the Basal Skin Cancer. Her face looks good and all the scars have healed. Well they w3ere real pleased with Mom and they said it looks as though all of it was removed. They are watching one spot on the side of her face. We go back in 2 months just to be sure. I’ll have to cover my Pepper and Tomato Plants for overnight. The low will be 30 degrees or colder. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. As always I never let Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo go to waste. I just put it all in a sauce pan and reheat it on low heat. For Dessert later I had a Dole Sliced Peaches Cup. I left the original post from the other night below for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

Today’s Menu: Slow Cooker Whole Chicken w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Dinner Roll

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up some Cook’s Ham Steak, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, an Over Easy Egg, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 26 degrees this morning and had a high of 29 degrees, but the wind kept it in the teens. After Lunch I took Mom’s car up to the car wash and vacuumed it out. Then stopped and filled it with gas at our local UDF Store. Went around and put up garbage cans for 5 of my neighbors after the trash ran. Just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Slow Cooker Whole Chicken w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Dinner Roll.

 

We had a Katie’s Best Whole Chicken Roaster in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. It weighed about 3 3/4 lb. I decided to cook it in the Crockpot. I used a small Crockpot. I lined it with a Crockpot Liner and sprayed it with Pam and 2 tablespoons of Cooking Olive Oil. Added a 1/4 cup of water and heated it on high heat. As the Pot was heating I then seasoned it with a mixture of Salt, Pepper, Smoked Paprika, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder and Cumin. I mixed up all the Spices in a small bowl. Then seasoned all sides of the Roaster and on the inside. Then added it to the Crockpot.

 

Cooked for 4 hours and done! It turned out as good if not better than any Rotisserie Chicken you could buy! Tender and so moist with great flavor from the Spices. Katie’s Chicken does it again!

 

 

 

 

 

Then for sides I heat up the leftover Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans from a night ago. Also had an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Roll. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Dinner Rolls

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and a high of 34 degrees, one dreary day out there. Also not a good day if you have sinus problems like me. These shifting temperatures are not good for me. Had a headache all day. Did a few things around the house and laid down for a while. Easy Dinner tonight, Leftovers! I heated up the Leftovers from our Dinner last night. So it’s Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Dinner Rolls. I’ve left the post from last night for description and directions. Enjoy, Stay Safe Everyone!

 

For the Turkey I used the Jennie – O Oven Ready Skinless Boneless Turkey Breast. Such an easy way to have a moist and fantastic tasting Turkey, along with little to clean-up! Comes in a Jennie O Turkey Breast Oven Ready Bag, that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 165 degrees. The Turkey comes out moist, juicy and delicious, with an excellent flavor! So cooking usually for just myself and Mom, it’s just the right size (2-3 lbs.). Enough leftovers for Dinner tomorrow. I also prepared a Blackberry Glaze, which works great on Turkey or Pork! To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good, it’s been a while since I’ve had any. Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. I also heated up some of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. These are great for those of us with Diabetes 2, or for anyone who loves good rolls. The Rolls are only 35 calories and 1 carb per roll! That’s right 1 net Carb per roll! So a big thank you to Aunt Millie’s for these! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink. .

Today’s Menu: Prime Rib Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Another cloudy and gloomy day out. But a lot cooler. We had a high of 32 degrees but the wind chill made it feel like the low twenties! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. That was it for me today! It’s Leftovers tonight. For Dinner tonight I reheated the Prime Rib and made Sandwiches with it. Also heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes.

 

I wrapped the Prime Rib in foil and reheated it at 250 degrees. After heating it I let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing. I served it on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Buns. The Prime Rib came out Delicious! Tender and flavorful.

 

For a side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. I’ve left the post description of the Prime Rib from yesterday below. Take Care and Stay Safe all!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at GFS (Gordon Food Service). It’s a 6 1/4 lb. Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a baking pan for 3 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. Removed it from the oven when done and let it rest for 15 minutes.

 

The Prime Rib turned out perfect! So very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from GFS again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.
