Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 62 degrees and mostly sunny today, very windy out again. I had Phantom Pains start around 3:00 this morning and continue until about 1:00 this afternoon! These are so painful and frustrating. So I did very little today but catch up on some sleep and relaxation. Phantom pains just drain you. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a package of Ground Chicken while at Meijer earlier yesterday. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, Hoffman’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Butter Leaf Lettuce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, finally found these Buns at Walmart. I keep them in the freezer and get one out when needed.

 

 

To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and Lettuce. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French 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 Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

Today’s Menu: Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 74 degrees and sunny outside! Beautiful weather to be November! Did some yard work, did a repair on deck, and the kept the cart out and rode around the neighborhood, enjoying this weather! For Dinner tonight it’s Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used my favorite, the healthy and delicious Jennie O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages. I bought a package of them at Meijer the other day. First time I’ve found them in stock for quite some time! I prepared 3 of them and froze the rest. I pan fried them, using Pam w/ Olive Oil Cooking Spray and no oil needed. Heated the pan on medium and cooked a total of about 17 minutes, turning the Sausages occasionally. They fry up plump and brown, as always Jennie – O Products always have that fresh taste to them. The Sausages have 160 calories and 0 carbs per Sausage. I served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Love these!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very windy with rain showers in the morning. 51degrees and cloudy for the afternoon. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later I wiped down the entire house with Clorox Disinfectant Wipes and sprayed Lysol Spray. The house is clean! Not much else going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

Mom had been wanting to try Omaha Steaks for some time and I finally broke down and purchased a few types for us. I purchased a Fully Cooked Pot Roast, Omaha Steaks Burgers, and Fully Cooked Tri-Tip Sandwich Steaks. We are having the Fully Cooked Tri-Tip Sandwich Steaks for Dinner tonight for the second time. And Yes, I’m having Beef again!

They come frozen, 6 – 4 oz. Steaks per box. So I got 2 of the Tri-Tips and sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. They come Seasoned and fully cooked, nice size Tri-Tips. So all I have to is heat them up, and ready to serve! I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet added a little of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the Skillet on medium heat. With the Skillet heated I added the Steaks. Cooked the Steaks until they heated up, flipping them once.

As the Steaks were cooking I heated up some Mushrooms, for a topping for the Steaks. I heated those up in a small Skillet. So I’ll be serving them on a Kroger 100% Whole Wheat Hoagie Roll. I love these Hoagie Buns, they are always so fresh! Topped the Steaks with some of the Sauteed Mushrooms. These Steaks are so good! Excellent Seasoning, Tender, and just flat out Delicious! I’m glad Mom wanted to try them, great choice Mom! These are the most Tender Beef Steaks I have ever had, makes me want Beef a bit more!

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and American Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a couple Eggo’s Nurti Grain Waffles. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. It’s a Chilly Morning out there this morning, 39 degrees! But the rain has finally stopped and it was cloudy, very windy, and 48 degrees for the day. I went to Meijer after Breakfast, Mom needed a few items. Stopped by McDonald’s on the way back home and picked up Breakfast for her. Well our new drainage system that I had installed along the side of driveway works great! Good flow and no flooding. After Lunch I got the rake and leaf blower out cleaned off the deck and driveway. Then did a little yard work in the front yard. For Dinner tonight a Chicken Bacon and American Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I had bought Mom some Omaha Steaks Burgers, yes I’m using Beef! I rarely use Beef but Mom had tried these a while back so I purchased a box for her. They come frozen 6 (4 oz.) burgers. So I laid a couple of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’ll be needing the Burgers, Extra Light Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper, al fresco Chicken Bacon, Kraft Deli Style American Cheese, and Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Buns. The Bacon was already cooked I just heated it up a bit.

 

To prepare the Burgers I preheat a small amount of the Olive Oil in non-stick pan over medium heat. Add burgers, pan frying for 6-8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 160°F., checked by a meat thermometer. After 4 minutes I flipped the Burgers and with 1 minute of cooking time left I added a 1/2 slice of the American Cheese.

 

I served the Burgers on the Healthy Life Buns. I topped the Burgers with the al fresco Chicken Bacon and served! The Burger was delicious! Nicely seasoned and juicy! The Bacon and Cheese worked perfect. I guess I’ll have to have Beef a bit more often, good job Omaha Steaks!

 

 

I also baked our favorite, Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees and partly cloudy today. More like a Spring Day instead of a Fall Day out there. Did a few light chores around the house and then headed outside to enjoy the beautiful Fall day. Got the cart out for most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots.

 

I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had a bag in the freezer. Sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I’ll be seasoning them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix. First Salted them and then put the Fillets in a plastic bag and added the Breading. Shook the bag until the Fillets were covered.

 

Then added a few of them to the preheated skillet. I fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out a golden brown! The Perch was delicious, just love fresh water fish as I do all Fish. Meijer is about the only store that carries the White Perch and they also will have Yellow Lake Perch from time to time.

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Tater Tots as I was cooking the Fish. Just baked at 425 degrees for about 20 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.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 39 degrees out this morning, a bit chilly out there! We had a high 58 degrees and sunny, beautiful Fall day! So after Tea I headed out to Meijer. With this Virus starting to get worse I thought I would go to Meijer and get a few stock items like Canned Goods, Frozen Items, Cleaning Supplies and Paper Products. Meijer was packed this morning, I guess everyone had the same Idea. Stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home Me and Mom both went to Walgreen’s and got our first Flu Shots! First one me or Mom had ever gotten. Love our local Walgreen’s, so friendly and helpful! Back home raked the front and side lawns. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet sprayed it the Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 14 minutes flipping it several times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo, you have to try it! I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise on the last Turkey Burger and loved it! It’s nice and Creamy with excellent flavor and a nice little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Steak Strips Hoagie and Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the the Block 4 State Cheddar. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 70 degrees out today. With the rain and wind that came in overnight my yard and deck were full of leaves! So I got my cart, rake, and leaf blower out of the shed. I ended up filling up 2 1/2 large garbage bags with leaves. Then gave a neighbor a hand raking his yard. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Steak Strips Hoagie and Baked Fries.

 

To make my Hoagie I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo – Premium Steak Strips, Extra Light Olive Oil, Wild Idea Omnivore Salt, Meijer Perfection Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns, Hellman’s Organic Mayonnaise- Spicy Chipotle, and Pennsylvania Dutchman Sliced Mushrooms. I was going through the freezer looking for something for upcoming Dinner and came across a package of Wild Idea Buffalo – Premium Steak Strips. I had forgot that I had purchased them a while back and had them in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. The package contains pre-cut strips from the Tenderloin, New York Strip, Ribeye and Sirloin. I had some a quite a while back and they are just flat out delicious!

 

To prepare them; I first Rinsed the Wild Idea Bison Steak Strips and pat them dry. I then added a light amount of Extra Light Olive Oil to them, making sure the Strips were completely covered on all sides. Then I seasoned them with Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt. The Omnivore Salt is a blend of Natural Sea Salt and Organic Spices. Then I left the Strips rest. Next I got a Cast Iron Skillet and added 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on Medium High Heat.

 

Over Medium High heat, I cooked the Bison Strips for about 4 minutes, tossing to turn occasionally. I removed the Strips into a bowl. I turned the Heat to Medium and then using the same Skillet I Sauteed some Mushrooms. I seasoned those with Ground Roast Cumin, Dried Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Turning and tossing the Mushrooms often and for about 4 minutes. I removed them from the Skillet into a bowl.

 

To serve I got one of the Hoagie Rolls and added some of the Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise to the bottom half of the roll, I put on nice and thick. I have fallen in love with this Mayo! Nice Spice, a little heat but nothing overpowering. Then I added my Buffalo Steak Strips, topped that with the Sauteed Mushrooms and it’s ready to eat! Those Steak Strips are nothing less than incredible! So tender and flavorful. The Chipotle Mayo and Sauteed Mushrooms are perfect with the Steak Strips. One very delicious Steak Hoagie!

 

To go with the Hoagie I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, my favorites. I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 82 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. After Breakfast I took my car up and had it washed and I vacuumed out the inside. Back home raked some leaves before the grass mower showed up. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

I picked up a loaf the Goldminer California Sourdough Bread at Kroger on my last visit and had it in the freezer. I laid 4 slices in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love this Bread especially grilled! But don’t have too often because of the calories and carbs. To prepare the Sandwich I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 3 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 64 degrees and cloudy, rain showers moving in late. Did laundry after Breakfast. Not a lot going on today. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, lot of leaves. Did a few things on the inside. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a package of Ground Chicken from Meijer my last visit there. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, Hoffman’s Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Butter Leaf Lettuce and served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, finally found these Buns at Walmart. I keep them in the freezer and get one out when needed.

 

To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and Lettuce. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French 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 Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 82 degrees and mostly sunny. This is our warmest day in a while. Went to Home Depot after Breakfast. Then on the way back stopped at the ATM, got gas, and got the car washed. Back home did a little yard work. Boy we really need a good rain, everything is turning brown. 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 a while back and had it in the freezer. I sat a bag 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 serve it on a 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 the added 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 on 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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
