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

 

 

For Breakfast to start this Wednesday off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. Had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to drink. 48 degrees out today but rain on and off all day. But that’s a good thing, it’s melting the snow! Not a lot going on today so I did a few things around the house and grabbed a push broom and swept the driveway. We used a lot of salt out there due to the ice. For dinner tonight I prepared “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Sloppy Joe Night tonight for dinner! We haven’t had these in a long time, and they really sounded good! 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 Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calories Whole GrainHamburger Buns. Using Buffalo, or Bison, instead of Beef will give your Sloppy Joe a deeper and richer flavor.

 

 

 

 

 

Used 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 on the Kroger Wheat Bun. Another delicious dish using Wild Idea Buffalo. For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for the Fries. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

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.

Pulled Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Pulled Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I had a Poached Egg and served it on a slice of toasted Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, passing light shower, and 44 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Later after Lunch I went to Kroger to pick up a couple of things for tonight’s Dinner. Back home cleaned the Kitchen and the fridge. For Dinner tonight, Pulled Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

 

 

 

I picked a Kroger small Rotisserie Chicken at Kroger earlier. I pulled all the Meat of the Chicken to make the Sandwiches. The Kroger Rotisserie Chicken is about 1/2 the size of the Simple Truth Rotisserie Chickens, but just as good!

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Sandwiches I’ll need; 1 Kroger Rotisserie Chicken, Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese, Jack Daniel’s Hickory Barbecue Sauce, Butter Lettuce, Kroger Bakery White Slider Rolls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Pulling the Chicken Meat I seasoned it with just a bit of Morton’s Light Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I then heated it up in a skillet for about 4 minutes. Then to make the Sandwiches; I took a couple of the Slider Rolls and cut them in half. Next I took a leaf of the Lettuce and placed it on the bottom bun. Next a 1/2 slice of Swiss Cheese. Next the Pulled Chicken and topped all off the Jack Daniel’s Hickory Barbecue Sauce. And this is one great tasting Sandwich! I love Rotisserie Chicken, you can use it in so many different ways. Then the Jack Daniel’s Hickory Barbecue Sauce just adds that extra flavor. First time using the Kroger Bakery Slider Rolls. They are only 90 calories per roll, so not too bad. Excellent Sandwiches.

 

 

 

 


I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Jack Daniel’s® Honey Smokehouse™
Known for its attention to detail and unrelenting quality, Jack Daniel’s® slow cooks its Honey Smokehouse™ Barbecue Sauce using a blend of real honey and spices to ensure the perfect balance of sweet smokey flavor for all your grilling and baking occasions. Brush on meat during last 10 to 15 minutes of cooking for delicious flavor.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning it was Gravy, Toast, and Sausage. I made the gravy using a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. As that cooking I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. One Comfort Food Breakfast to start morning off. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a couple of items and then to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Finished a couple of things around the house then I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription and some stamps. Caught up on some shows I had recorded the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I had picked up a couple of Orange Roughy Fillet at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier in the week. I sliced the Fillet in 1/2, rinsed them in cold water, and put them in Hefty Plastic Freezer Bags and froze them. So I put 1 of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need; the Orange Roughy Fillet, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Flour, Egg Beater’s (1/2 cup), Hungarian Paprika, and Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. I’ll also need An Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I first Seasoned the Fillet with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika. Then rolled the Fillet in the Flour, next to the Egg Beater’s, and finally in the Panko Bread Crumbs.

 

 

 

 

I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added my Fillet. I fried it for 3 minutes per side. It fried up perfect! Golden Brown on the outside and a moist center. I served it on the Aunt Millie’s Bun. Orange Roughy has such a good taste to it, it’s a very mild Fish. Makes the perfect Fish Sandwich!

 

 

 

 

 

 


As my Orange Roughy was cooking I turned the oven up to 425 degrees and baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. 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 and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange Roughy Fillet

Orange Roughy
The orange roughy, also known as the red roughy, slimehead and deep sea perch, is a relatively large deep-sea fish belonging to the slimehead family. The UK Marine Conservation Society has categorized orange roughy as “vulnerable to exploitation”. Wikipedia

Protein. Orange roughy and tilapia serve as a rich source of protein, although tilapia provides slightly more; tilapia has 45.5 grams per serving and orange roughy has 38.9 grams per serving. The protein in these varieties of fish is considered complete, meaning that they contain all nine essential amino acids.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast

 

 


It’s one foggy morning out there this morning. I can see the house next door and that’s about it. For Breakfast this morning I heated up a Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage, Egg White, and Cheddar Cheese Breakfast Scramble Cup. Also had a cup of of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to the Kroger up the road to pick up a Prescription for Mom and a few items she needed. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her, she loves those McDonald’s Breakfasts! Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then spent most of the afternoon on the phone with a computer problem, finally got it fixed but it took a while! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast.

 

 

 


Why not an American Favorite Food on Labor Day! For the Wings I’m using Kroger Oven Roasted Chicken Wings. I started by heating the oven on 425 degrees F., same temperature I’ll need for my Fries and Texas Toast. I took a small Baking Sheet and lined it with foil. Then sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Spread the Wings out across the sheet and baked them for 33 minutes, turning them once after 17 minutes. I love Wings, and these are excellent Wings! Served them with Dipping Sauces of Hidden Valley Buffalo/Ranch Dressing and Litehouse Light Blue Cheese Dressing.

 

 

 

 


With the oven already heated I baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also baked up some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 

 

To start this rainy Friday morning off I prepared one of my favorites, Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. Well the rains have finally eased up! Had a light sprinkle and then cloudy and 50 degrees. Went Kroger for Mom after Lunch and stopped by the Bank for her. Not a lot going on today. For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

 


I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. I had a couple small fillets of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. This is the last bag of Grouper I have left that my friends bring me back from Florida’s Gulf Coast, hope they do some fishing soon! So 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.

 

 

 

As my Grouper was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Happy Labor Day to everyone out there! Outside it’s mostly sunny and 94 degrees. The pollen count and mold count was high so I didn’t get out much today. Really suffering with the allergies today! Got some cleaning done and that was about it for this Labor Day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Thomas Light 100 Calorie Multi Grain English Muffin. Then I lightly fried some slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, and topped it all with a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Longhorn Colby Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny, 86 degrees, and not quite as humid out today. So good to see the sunshine again! After I had Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. She went on to Church afterward. I stayed home and did a load of laundry. Then got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work this afternoon. Feels great to get out. For Dinner tonight a Fish Sandwich! I prepared a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had picked a New Zealand Orange Roughy Fillet at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier in the week. I sliced the Fillet in 1/2, rinsed them in cold water, and put them in Hefty Plastic Freezer Bags and froze them. So I put 1 of them in the fridge overnight to thaw.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin English Muffin. I normally use Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffins but Kroger is the only store to carry them and they haven’t had any in stock for over a month. Time to switch! The Thomas Muffins are comparable to the Healthy Life, both are 100 calories and 17 net carbs. Anyway I topped the Muffin with a Poached Egg. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny, hot, and very humid outside today! The normal August weather has returned! After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Too humid to be outside for me. Took it easy the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast.

 

For the Wings I’m using Kroger Oven Roasted Chicken Wings. I started by heating the oven on 425 degrees F., same temperature I’ll need for my Fries and Texas Toast. I took a small Baking Sheet and lined it with foil. Then sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Spread the Wings out across the sheet and baked them for 33 minutes, turning them once after 17 minutes. I love Wings, and these are excellent Wings!

Pastrami and Swiss Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

Today’s Menu: Pastrami and Swiss Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

 

To start my morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Weather wise its about the same Hot and Humid. They say our hottest days will be Wednesday and Thursday. So after Breakfast I started touching up the shutters outside. Nothing major, just a few places on them needed some paint. I’m having the ramp leading to the Kitchen revarnished Tuesday, my neighbor is doing it for me. Anyway I got everything done outside before it became too hot and humid. For Dinner tonight I tried something new. I prepared a Pastrami and Swiss Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

This recipe was inspired from one of the Diners, Drive-Ins, ans Dives, one of my favorite shows! I’ve come across so many recipes watching this show. It’s sort of a strange combo but it looked great on TV and thought I would give it a try. For my Burger I’ll need; the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burger, Boar’s Head Pastrami and Boar’s Head Imported Switzerland Swiss Cheese (That I purchased at Kroger yesterday), French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, and Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Buns.

 

 

 

As always I’m using the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Burgers. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and done. After I flipped the Burger I added a slice of Swiss Cheese on top.

 

 

 

 

As my Burger was cooking I got a small skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. Then heated the pan on medium heat. With the pan heated I added the Pastrami and heated it up. I flipped several times. I just wanted to warm it up being sure not to over cook it.

 

 

 

 

 

To put the Buffalo Burger together I used a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. I served the Swiss and Buffalo Burger on the Bun. Topped it with Pastrami. I then took the Spicy Brown Mustard and added to the backside of the top Bun., and done! A delicious change of pace for my Wild Idea Burger. As usual the Burger came out a beautiful medium rare. The added Pastrami, Swiss, and Spicy Brown Mustard worked great! Gave it another depth of flavor to an already delicious Burger. I’ll have this again!

 

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Diet Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe w/ Baked Steak Fries

Today’s Menu: Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe w/ Baked Steak Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl 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. After Breakfast we headed up to see Dad. Dad isn’t going to be around for much longer it looks like. He’s stopped eating and he’s down to 122 lbs. All they can do now is make him comfortable as the can. My heart is breaking but I have to be strong for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe w/ Baked Steak Fries and a Slice of Texas Toast.

 


It’s a favorite of mine for Dinner, Fried Oysters. So anyway to prepare my Fried Oysters I’ll need; 1 can of large-medium Oysters (shucked), 1 tablespoon Flour, 1/4 cup Egg Beaters, 1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste), 2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil. Hot sauce, Seafood Cocktail Sauce are all optional.

 

 

 


I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

 


Next, heat Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown, and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 


For a side I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries and had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping.Also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.
