Today’s Menu: Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg

 

 

I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 41 degrees outside today. Had a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner! Everything was so good. Mom even made a Apple Pie made with Splenda and it was just incredible! But shortly after Dinner I had to deal with some extremely painful Phantom Pains! They continued through out the night into the morning. The finally let up around noon today and I was drained. These took about everything out of me. So I tried to catch up on some sleep and relaxation. Still hoping for a cure to Phantom Pains! On some good news I went for my exam and blood work to my Oncologist Wednesday. Everything came back completely clean! So now I just have to go for a yearly exam instead of twice and no more scans and x-rays! Really pleased over that. For Dinner it’s Thanksgiving Dinner Leftovers. I made a Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg.

 

Plenty of leftovers from the Thanksgiving Dinner Feast! And thank goodness for leftovers because after my night and I really didn’t feel like cooking. We almost always use Cook’s Ham when we bake a Ham. So with the Ham we baked yesterday, we made some into Ham Sandwiches. Just took a few slices and serving it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is so delicious and moist. And as always with Cook’s Ham, perfect seasoning! We’ll have quite a few Breakfasts and Lunches out of this. To make the Sandwich I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped it with a bit Kraft Light Mayo with Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and a slice of Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese. Love this Sandwich!

 

For a side I heated up the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and I had a leftover Deviled Eggs. Just love these leftovers! It’s sometimes better the second time around! For Dessert/Snack a bowl of Chex Mix with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Cook’s Hams

Semi-Boneless Hams
Classic Reduced Sodium Half (Serves: 15-20)
Half (Serves: 15-20)
Whole (Serves: 30-40)
Semi-Boneless Hams
Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are now fully cooked! This means they may be eaten cold or heated. The ham only needs to be heated through if serving warm.
With fewer bones and less fat, Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are a great value. With two of the three bones removed, carving and serving are much easier. With only the center bone remaining, your family can still can enjoy the great taste and flavor that only a Cook’s bone-in ham can offer, plus the added value of more lean meat and the convenience of less bone.

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

 

 

For Breakfast on this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Afterward I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Mostly sunny and 86 degrees out, low Humidity but high Pollen count out today. Mom went on to Church and I got a few things done around the house. Did a load of laundry and as that was finishing I went out and raked the front yard. Everything done just in time to settle back and watch a day of NFL Football! So for Dinner tonight I’m heating up the Leftover Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

This was too good from the night before to go to waste! So I’m having the Leftovers tonight for Dinner. Have a great evening every one! I left the orignal post from the night before for directions and ingredients.

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. I always look 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. 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. When done I drained what little fat from the skillet. 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. With 5 minutes of cooking time left I added the Sausage back to the skillet, stirring well to mix with Rice.

 

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 Diet 1/2 and 1/2 Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink. I love my Snapple!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After my Tea I stated a load of laundry and then headed out to Walmart. Didn’t need much, just something to do. After Lunch I got the cart out and grabbed a rake and leaf blower and raked the back yard. Sprayed for weeds along the back along the woods. I love the warm weather and getting out and doing things around the yard! It was mostly Sunny and 91 degrees out, a bit more humid out.

For Dinner tonight its leftovers! Had a container of the Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. Come Dinner time I heated up the leftover Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. I reheat in a small sauce pan. I’ve left the original post below for description. Enjoy!

 

 

 

The Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta has two of my favorites in it, pasta and pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta. I also added a few slices of Turkey Pepperoni and sliced Portabello Mushrooms to the mix. For the preparation you can bake it or prepare it on the stove top, which is how I prepared it. Add 1 cup of water, stir and mix, and simmer and you have your dinner! This came out fantastic! Really had a good Pizza flavor to it and excellent Sauce! The Sauce with the Mushrooms, Sausage, and Pepperoni provides the great flavoring. Easily prepared and makes a hearty and delicious meal. I know it’s a boxed meal, I can’t help it. It’s always been a favorite of mine since the first time I tried it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along with the Pizza Pasta I had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Scattered thunderstorms in the area, 89 degrees, and humid out today. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. They came today and measured for the carpet in the bedroom and bathroom. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight its Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta w/ French Bread.

 

 

 

 


For the Chicken I used the leftover Kirkland – Costco Rotisserie Chicken. I put the Chicken in a bowl and I seasoned it with a shake of Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Set aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Next I prepared the Sauteed Mushrooms. I used a small package of Baby Bella Mushrooms that I had purchased at Meijer the other day. Cooked them in a small skillet. I added a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the skillet on medium heat. I sliced up the Mushrooms and added them to the heated skillet. Seasoned them with Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Roasted Cumin, Dried Thyme, and Dried Rosemary. Sauteed for about 5 minutes stirring them often. Removed the skillet from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Mushrooms were cooking I started cooking the Rotini Pasta. For the Pasta I used Ronzoni Smart taste Rotini. For some reason finding Rozini Pasta Products in this are is getting harder and harder to find. I found this at Walmart. To prepare it I got a sauce pan out and added about 1 1/2 quarts Water and Salt. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the pasta and stirred; returned it to a rapid boil. Cooked it for 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 9 minutes removed it from the heat, drained it. Added it to a bowl, seasoning it with a bit more Salt and a 1/2 a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then added the Chicken and Mushrooms. Stirred until well mixed. The trio of Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta combine together to make one delicious Dinner! Served it in a bowl and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I also had a slice of Pillsbury French Bread leftover from last night. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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!

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off! One delicious Breakfast! We were fogged in this morning! Heavy fog until about 11:00 this morning. But then it turned sunny and a high of 46 degrees. The snow is melting! After Breakfast I went to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. I was at the Kroger up the road from us yesterday but their prices are so much higher than Meijer or Walmart! So after Meijer I stopped and got gas and then to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Later on went outside and cleaned up around the driveway and deck. Then kicked back the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight Leftover: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I wasn’t going to let these leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from yesterday for details of the dish, Enjoy!

 

 

 

One of my favorite meals tonight, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta 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.

 

 

 

 

 


The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced the 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 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 Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too! Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites and topped those with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. More rain today, heavy at times. High of 47 degrees. Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Caught up on everything so I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. I’ve left the original post from yesterday for the dish preparation and description.

 

 

 

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

 

 


I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Baked Ham/Swiss and Turkey /Cheddar Sliders w/ Thanksgiving Leftovers

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I heated up the leftover Diced Potatoes and Diced Ham that I had prepared yesterday. Not a bad day out today, 54 degrees and mostly cloudy. After Lunch I took Mom’s car up to have it washed and then I cleaned all of the inside windows and vacuumed it out for her. Later on I entered a Scrabble Tournament online. I love Scrabble! For Dinner tonight I used the Leftovers from Thanksgiving. I prepared Baked Ham/Swiss and Turkey /Cheddar Sliders w/ Thanksgiving Side Leftovers.

 

 

 

 

For Dinner its Baked Ham and Swiss Sliders along with Turkey and Vermont Cheddar Sliders. To make them I’ll need; King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (Cut in half), leftover Ham, leftover Turkey Breast, Sargento Swiss Cheese, Boar’s Head Vermont Yellow Cheddar, Blue Bonnet Light Butter – 4 Tbsp (original recipe called for 8), 2 tsp. Dried Onion Powder, 1 1/2 tsp. Worchestershire Sauce, 1 1/2 tsp. Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and 1/2 tsp. French’s Yellow Mustard.

 

 

 

 

Next I made my Bun Topping Sauce. I grabbed a medium size bowl to mix my ingredients in. I then mixed the Butter, Onion Powder, Worchestershire Sauce, Ken’s Light Poppyseed Dressing, and French’s Yellow Mustard together. Stirred until well mixed and sit it aside until ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

 

Then to prepare the Sliders; preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then I got an 11 x 14 baking pan that I lined with foil and sprayed with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I placed the bottom half of the Slider Buns in the bottom of the baking pan. Next I placed the Sweet Sliced Ham and Sliced Turkey Breast on top of each Bun. You can put as much of the Ham or Turkey you want on each. I then placed a 1/2 a slice of the Swiss on the Ham and Cheddar cheese on top of the Turkey. Then added the the top 1/2 of each bun to each Slider. Then topped all the Sliders with Topping Sauce Mixture. Covered the baking pan with foil and baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Removed the foil and baked an additional 15 minutes to allow the rolls to crisp. Remove from oven to cool and serve.

 

 

 

These Baked Ham Sliders are incredible! The Ham, Turkey, Cheese, and Buns are all great but the Topping Sauce makes the Dish. The Sauce gives it such great flavor, love these Sliders! Plus a great way to use those Thanksgiving Leftovers!

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated the leftover Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. Those Canned Green Beans are so delicious! We had canned these during Summer and broke out the first jar for Thanksgiving, so good! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs and Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

For Breakfast I toasted a slice of Aunt Millies Light Whole Grain Bread and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Windy, humid, and mostly cloudy out with a high of 89 degrees. After Breakfast I headed to Menard’s, I needed a new Leaf Blower. Back home got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work and then used the new Leaf Blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight, always one of my favorite Meals – Leftovers! I heated up the Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. Whenever I prepare this meal I make sure any leftovers never go to waste! I’ve left the original post below for the ingredients and directions. Have a good night all!

 

 


For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Love this Bread! For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.
