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

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A high of 79 degrees and rain in the morning and partly sunny for the afternoon. I had a rough night last night dealing with Phantom Pains all night into the morning. They were bad ones so I got little to no sleep. So I spent most of the day catching up on some sleep. Luckily I had an easy Dinner to prepare, Leftovers! I heated up the leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. I left the original post from yesterday below for instructions and description. Stay Safe and Take Care All!

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen 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, leftovers coming tomorrow. 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 easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausages, prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees with passing rain showers. Went to Menard’s after Breakfast. I was checking to see if their outdoor runway carpet came in yet, it didn’t. We are going to put it on the ramp outside leading to the kitchen. Hopefully it will work and it will save us from having to touch up the ramp twice a year. Taking my Hoveround Mobility Chair up it many times a day it wears it out. Took care of a few things in and around the house. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Lasagna w/ Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,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 and served.And had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 86 degrees, very humid, windy, and thunderstorms moving through during the morning. Took it easy as my allergies were running wild, again! Just did a few chores around the house today. For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Lasagna and Texas Toast (Light).

 

I’ve always been a huge fan of Chef Boyardee products and love their Chef Boyardee Lasagna, Ravioli, and Spaghetti and Meatballs. To prepare it; the easy part! Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan, put the lid on, and heat on medium until heated through. Just stir it occasionally and your done. The Pasta Lasagna is excellent and the Tomato and Beef Sauce it comes in is very good. I know there’s better stuff out there but from time to time I love having Chef Boyardee.

 

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink. Take Care all!

Today’s Menu: Chicken Tenders and Butter/Herb Fettuccine and Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 86 degrees and sunny, with a lot less humid today! After my Tea I grabbed my face mask and headed to Kroger for a few items. On the way back home I got Mom’s car washed for her, filled it with gas, and stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Later on I took my car up and had it washed and got gas. Back home I vacuumed both cars interiors and cleaned the windows. Took it easy the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight its Chicken Tenders and Butter/Herb Fettuccine and Garlic Loaf Bread.

I grabbed a 1/2 package of Simple Truth Chicken Tenderloins (Tenders) that I had in the freezer and I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I’ll need McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Poultry Herb Blend, Garlic Salt, Flour, Pam Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

I seasoned and Floured the Tenders and set then aside. I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Spray and heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet heated I added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. When the skillet was heated I added the Tenders, I cooked them in 2 batches so not to over crowd the skillet. I cooked them for about 5 minutes and flipped them over to continue cooking them another 4 minutes. I checked the Tenders with a meat thermometer and I had the correct reading of 165 degrees F. Removed the first batch on to a paper towel lined plate and cooked the next batch.

 

They came out excellent! Good Seasoning and the Flour gave it a good crust. Served these with sides of LiteHouse Lite Blue Cheese and Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my Pasta I used a package of Knorr Pasta Sides – Butter and Herb Fettuccine. I love these Knorr Pasta Sides. I’ve tried 2 or 3 of them and they all make delicious Pasta Dishes! To prepare it; In medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water and 1 Tbsp. of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to a boil. Stir in contents of package and return to a boil. Reduce heat and continue boiling gently for 7 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally. Let stand at least 2 minutes. Stir and serve. Easy to prepare and delicious! Excellent Pasta with good Butter and Herb Seasoning! I also baked a loaf of the LaBrea Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Light Rain and 48 degrees out today. Caught up on most everything, so not much to do. So I cleaned the Microwave, scrubbed all the Kitchen Counters, and straightened up the Pantry. That was it for the day. Well things are finally going to start opening up. Doctors Offices reopened Thursday. Churches, Retail Stores, Barbershops, and Beauty Salons are open next week. Hope all goes well and this virus goes away! For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

Today’s Menu: Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was a cold way to start the day outside today, 14 degrees! For the day it was cloudy and a high of 27 degrees. I had to replace the screws around both my wheel chair wheels that I keep out in the car. Then I cleaned and did some minor repairs to my Hoveround Mobility Chair, wish they had snow tires I could put on this! For Dinner tonight I prepared Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread.

 

I Love this Pizza Pasta from Banquet and haven’t had it in a while! This is one of my favorite boxed foods, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. Nothing like a quick, easy and delicious comfort food. I can only find it at Walmart or online now.

 

 

 

 

Anyway it’s got 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 also prepared some Baked Cheesy Bread. I’ll be using Healthy Life Sour Dough Bread, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Just Butter the Bread and add your Cheese on top. Then bake on 400 degrees until the Bread is toasted and Cheese is melted. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta

When only comfort food will do, Banquet Homestyle Bakes are the perfect choice. Each comes complete with everything you need to make a delicious and hearty straight-from-the-oven meal. So you’ll spend less time worrying about your meal—and more time enjoying it.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 42 degrees outside today. I had to go to Meijer to pick up a few things for Mom and myself and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home got the cart out of the shed and raked the back yard. We have a Mole problem in the backyards of most of the homes on our side of street. I ordered some Mole Stop off Amazon, see if that works! For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

 

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

 

As I said I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert tonight a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made French Toast and Turkey Sausage. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Cinnamon, and Ground Nutmeg. For toppings I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. For my Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 49 degrees outside today. Cleaned out the fridge, cleaned the stove and oven, and cleaned the microwave today. Later got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas and then raked the front yard. For dinner tonight I reheat Leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Ileft the original post from the other day for description and instructions below. Enjoy!

 

I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the freezer. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. If I was making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. With toppings of Sargento Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Oyster Crackers. I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside as my Pasta was cooking. For the full recipe and cooking instructions of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili just click the link. (https://beatcancer2010.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/3-bean-turkey-chili-12/) I emptied the container into a small sauce pan and heated it on medium low, stirring often until heated through.

 

For my Elbow Pasta I used DereamFields Elbows. It’s tough finding Whole Grain Pastas, at least around here where I live. Used to be I could find it at most any Grocery Store. The DreamFields is all I could find at Meijer yesterday. It’s 190 calories and 36 net carbs per serving, cooks up great, and good taste. Filled a large pot up 1/2 way with water and added salt. Heated the water on high until boiling and addded the Pasta. Cooked it for 7 minutes.

 

 

 

 

When done removed it from the pot and drained. Add it back to the pot and add the heated 3 Bean Turkey Chili and mix with a large spoon, heat on low and mix well. And it’s ready to serve! You can top it with Cheese, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream, or Diced Onions. I just always use the Cheese and Hot Sauce for my toppings. To serve just grab a bowl and scoop out the amount that you want. Add your toppings, if any, and enjoy! The 3 Bean Turkey Chili works perfect with Elbow Pasta. Such a good Comfort Food Dish!

 

 

 

To go with the Chili Mac I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fettuccine and Sea Scallops

 

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 44 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Meijer and bought a couple of bags of Rock Salt that they had on sale. Yesterday after I went to the Doctor then we went to Kroger. I went to check out and every self scan was lined up and 4 were not even working. So I got in line for the check out with a cashier and I was third in line. The two ahead of me had full carts plus and the cashier was very slow. Behind me 14 other people lined up. Finally another line opened up and they took me first. The cashier told me they had 3 cashiers call in sick and she came in on her off day. Businesses in this area can not find people to work. A Panera Bread across from Kroger had to shutdown a week because they couldn’t find anyone to work! Sure wish these jobs across the area would have been there when I was working. Sorry for the ranting.  So for Dinner tonight I prepared Fettuccine and Sea Scallops.

 

I used Buitoni Fettuccine for my Past a for the dish. I love using all the Buitoni Products, always fresh and delicious! As all their product the Fettuccine is very easy to prepare. Just open package and add pasta with 1 tablespoon olive oil to 4 quarts boiling water. Reduce heat and boil gently for 2 minutes, stir frequently. Drain the water and serve. Season and add any Sauces before serving. For my Seasoning I just used Morton’s Light Salt, Dried Oregano, a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter and a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil.

 

 

I purchased the Sea Scallops at Kroger yesterday. I washed the Scallops and had them in a Hefty Zip Bag in the fridge. As my Pasta was cooking I prepared the Scallops. The Scallops were in a plastic bag and added them to a bowl. I added a 1/4 cup of McCormick Lemon Butter Dill Sauce to the bowl and stirred until the Scallops were coated. I’ve used the Dill sauce before and really love the flavor it gives Seafood, especially good on Orange Roughy and Grouper.

 

 

 

I got a medium size skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray and added a i/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to it, heated it on medium low heat. Removed the Scallops and shook off the excess Sauce and added them to the heated skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes and flipped them over and cooked another 2 minutes. They came out beautiful, it was tough not to eat them coming out of the skillet!

 

 

 

Added the Scallops to the Pasta bowl and lightly tossed them with the Fettuccine. I could not wait to dig in to this dish! The Fettuccine and Scallops work perfect with each other, a pair made to be together! With the added Lemon Butter Dill Sauce adding the perfect flavor for both. Really enjoyed this Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink. Take care all!

Sea Scallops
Scallops are mollusks that have two beautiful convexly ridged, or scalloped, shells. They consist of two shells hinged at one end which is why they are known to marine biologists as bi-valve mollusks. The edible portion of the scallop is the white muscle that opens and closes the two shells and is called the “nut.”

Similar to oysters and clams, scallops are filter feeding bivalves (two shells) that can be influenced by the contents of the surrounding waters. Certain plankton and the presence of scallop roe can influence the color of some scallop meats.

Why they’re healthy: Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. “One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories,” says Bowden. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium. (Clams and oysters provide similar benefits.)

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

No Tea or food this morning. I had to fast overnight and until after my doctor’s appointment at 8:00 this morning. I went to my Family Doctor for blood and sugar tests. Hopefully all is good, waiting on the results to come in next week. 39 degrees and sunny out today. After the Doctor I took Mom to Kroger, she needed a few things and then stopped and picked up Breakfast for her at McDonald’s. Back home I had to make Lunch, I was starved! Afterward I took the car up and had it washed, it was covered with salt. Later got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For dinner tonight I prepared 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread.

 

 

I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the freezer. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. If I was making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. With toppings of Sargento Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Oyster Crackers. I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside as my Pasta was cooking. For the full recipe and cooking instructions of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili just click the link. (https://beatcancer2010.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/3-bean-turkey-chili-12/) I emptied the container into a small sauce pan and heated it on medium low, stirring often until heated through.

 

For my Elbow Pasta I used DereamFields Elbows. It’s tough finding Whole Grain Pastas, at least around here where I live. Used to be I could find it at most any Grocery Store. The DreamFields is all I could find at Meijer yesterday. It’s 190 calories and 36 net carbs per serving, cooks up great, and good taste. Filled a large pot up 1/2 way with water and added salt. Heated the water on high until boiling and addded the Pasta. Cooked it for 7 minutes.

 

 

 

 

When done removed it from the pot and drained. Add it back to the pot and add the heated 3 Bean Turkey Chili and mix with a large spoon, heat on low and mix well. And it’s ready to serve! You can top it with Cheese, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream, or Diced Onions. I just always use the Cheese and Hot Sauce for my toppings. To serve just grab a bowl and scoop out the amount that you want. Add your toppings, if any, and enjoy! The 3 Bean Turkey Chili works perfect with Elbow Pasta. Such a good Comfort Food Dish!

 

 

 

To go with the Chili Mac I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
