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

 

For Breakfast I reheated the leftover Skillet Potatoes and Ham I had for Breakfast yesterday. 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. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain and more Rain outside again, high of 51 degrees. I believe I have a Sinus Infection. Hope this passes quickly, out of it today. Thank goodness for leftovers! Tonight its Leftover: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs and Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. I left yesterday’s post below for Dinner details.

 

 

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 cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt. 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! Had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding for Dessert later.

Outside today its cloudy and 70 degrees with rain showers and passing thunderstorms. Every time it starts to dry out where I can get the 4 wheel cart out and get started on some Spring yard work, the rains move back in! Way behind on Spring Cleaning the yard. But it gives me a chance to start the Spring Cleaning inside. I was going to see Dad today but the rain kept me in. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine,Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

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

 

 

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast we went up to see Dad for a while this morning. He seems as if he’s adjusted to his new surroundings but he’s still having a panic attack every now and then. Back home cleaned the house today, vacuum and dusted. Later relaxed and caught up on some programs I had recorded. For dinner tonight I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs w/ Texas Toast. Spaghetti and Meatballs really sounded good for Dinner tonight!

 

 

It’s Comfort Food tonight with Spaghetti and Meatballs! And you can make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large Meatballs.

 

 

 


I’ll be cooking them 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 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 about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 


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 my New York Bakery Light Texas Toast.

 


To serve I used a bowl and made a bed with Spaghetti. added a little Morton’s Lite Salt and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I then topped with Sauce and Meatballs. Wow this was so good, I’m very glad Kroger started stocking the Honeysuckle White Meatballs again. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce

Today’s Menu: Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I then lightly fried a few slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham and got a slice of Boar’s Head Sliced Gouda Cheese and made my Sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside had some sunshine early and a high of 45 degrees. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Not much else going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce.

 

 

For my Dinner tonight I’m preparing Chicken Topped with Mozzarella w/ Chive Pappardelle and Marinara Sauce. For the Chicken I purchased a package of Katie’s Best Thin Cut Chicken Breasts then for Seasoning I’ll need; Flour, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Litehouse Poultry Seasoning, Buitoni Marinara Sauce, Boar’s Head Deli Sliced Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

To prepare everything I grabbed a Large Sauce Pan and a Skillet. Sprayed each with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I filled the Sauce Pan with 4 quarts Water and a couple of shakes of Morton’s Light Salt. Turned it on medium heat. I’ll be using this to cook my Pappardelle Pasta with.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Water was heating up I Seasoned the Chicken. I Seasoned it with the Sea Salt, Peppercorns, Poultry Seasoning, and then rolled the Chicken Breasts in Flour. Next I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the Skillet on medium high heat. When the Skillet was ready I fried the Chicken, turning it occasionally, 18-20 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature. Uncovered the last 2 minutes of cooking. I then topped each Chicken Breast with a slice of the Mozzarella Cheese. Then a spoonful of the Marinara Sauce and finished cooking. The Chicken came out great! Browned up good, moist, and excellent flavor with the added Mozzarella Cheese and Marinara Sauce. I put the lid on the Skillet and set it aside while the Pasta finished.

 


To prepare the Buitoni Roasted Garlic and Chive Pappardelle; As the Chicken was cooking I had already started boiling the Water. When it was a full boil I added the Pasta. Reduced the heat for a gentle boil of the Pasta, stirred frequently with a pair of tongs to separate the Pasta. Drained the Water and served.

 

 

 

 

To serve it I got a plate and made a bed of the Pasta and added a spoonful of the Marinara Sauce. Then topped that with one of the Mozzarella Chicken Breasts. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Everything turned out delicious! First time I had the Buitoni Roasted Garlic and Chive Pappardelle in quite a while. The Pappardelle and Chicken combo worked great, Excellent dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

Buitoni Roasted Garlic and Chive Pappardelle

Developed together with our chefs at Casa Buitoni, these wide cut, flat pasta ribbons are freshly made with no GMO ingredients and real roasted garlic and chives infused into the pasta dough. How about enjoying with a freshly made Buitoni sauce?

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped 1/2 the Muffin with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and the other 1/2 with Nutella. If your not sure what Nutella is, Nutella is a brand of sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread. I’ll buy a small jar of this from time to time. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside more rain! There’s heavy flooding in a lot of places, especially in Cincinnati along the Ohio River. A lot of roads and businesses are under water. Plus heavy rain up until Sunday so it will get worse. Not feeling real good again today. So I took it easy still fighting with my Sinuses. For Dinner tonight its Leftover – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese. And thank goodness for Leftovers, sure didn’t feel like cooking today. I left the post from yesterday below for the Dish description and directions.

Almost done….

For Breakfast this morning I got the Waffle Grill out but instead of normal Waffles I made Hash Brown Waffles. I seen these made in Cooking Magazines and on TV but never tried them until this morning. Just spray the Griddle with Cooking Spray, add your Simply Potatoes Shredded Hashbrowns, season with Salt and Pepper, shut the lid of the Waffle Griddle, and cook. Quite easy to make and something different for Breakfast! I love Hash Browns, I could have them twice a day, and preparing them this was turned out great! I topped the Hash Brown Waffles with an Egg I fried Sunnyside Up and I toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also, as always, I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

Yesterday a record high of 80 degrees and Sunny. Today our high was 62 degrees at Midnight and fell through the day to about 42 degrees and Rain! Welcome to Ohio Weather! It’s like Forest Gump’s box of Chocolate, you never know what you’ll get! Not a lot going today so I took it easy still fighting with my Sinuses.

To go with the Chops Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Started out a cold morning, in the 20’s. The afternoon was mostly sunny and a high of 40 degrees. Finished up some cleaning around the house and did a load of laundry. Outside I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, not a lot of leaves left! After Lunch I gave Mom a hand in the kitchen. She was baking a couple of Pies for Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow, made a Pumpkin and an Apple Pie! For Dinner tonight its Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, and finally made my the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After I had Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Did a few things around the house and cleaned up outside. Done for the day! Partly cloudy and a high of 77 degrees out. With everything done for the day I kicked back and watched some programs I had recorded and some College Football. For dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

To make the dish I’ll need; 1 Box Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper and 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper. I’ve tried a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. This really turns out delicious and an easy meal to prepare! The Rotini and Cheese Sauce is excellent and the Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor for the Chicken is one of the better Crumb Coatings I’ve had for Chicken. To prepare it first go ahead and make the Pasta, by the box directions. Just boil, stir, and season.

 

 

As the Pasta was cooking I prepared the Chicken, I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. I cut each Breast into 3 pieces. Coated each piece with the provided Seasoned Crumbs and fried until done. The full instructions are at the end of the post. The Chicken Helper box contains Rotini Pasta with Naturally Flavored Cheesy Sauce Mix and Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor. I added the Chicken, Water, 2% Milk, Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper.

 

 

 

It all comes together for one easily made and delicious dinner. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Had a high of 60 degrees and mostly cloudy. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a few items and stopped by the Post Office and mailed a couple of letters and stopped by the Bank before heading home. Back at home I had to repair the Wheel Chair I keep in the trunk of my car, replaced some bolts and screws. Then got the sweeper out and cleaned the rotating brush on it. For Dinner tonight its Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Baked Whole Grain Penne Rigate, I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread.

 

I had been wanting some type of a Comfort Food Pasta Bake. Sort of a cool Fall day out so what better than to have a Comfort Food Pasta Bake! I prepared a Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Baked Whole Grain Penne Rigate. I’m using 2 of my favorites, Jennie – O Turkey and Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta. I’ll be using Jennie – O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage along with Ronzoni Healthy Harvest 100% Whole Grain Penne Rigate. I’ll also be needing; 1 jar La Rosa Sauce, 16 ounces fresh Mozzarella (sliced), ¼ cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and sliced Mushrooms. I’ll also be baking a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread.

 

To start I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F, to bake the Bread. After the Bread was done I raised the temperature to 375 degrees F, to bake my dish.

 

 

 

 

Next I cooked the Pasta according to package directions. Boiling Water for 9 minutes. Drain; set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the Pasta was cooking I got out the Jennie – O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and removed the casing on the Sausage. Then in a large skillet I sauteed the Sausage and the sliced Mushrooms. Cooked it until the Sausage is no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet.

 

 

 

 

Added the cooked Pasta, La Rosa Sauce, and Parmesan Cheese to skillet and stir to combine. Next I poured half of the Pasta mixture into a 13×9-inch baking dish coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Layer half of the Mozzarella slices on top. Then bake at 375 degrees F, uncovered, for about 40 minutes or until heated through and Mozzarella is melted. Let cool and chow down!

 

 

 

 

Well the wait for my Comfort Food Pasta Bake was well worth it! The Turkey, Mushrooms, Sauce, and Pasta was just so good. Then the fresh slices of Mozzarella sealed the deal! I love that fresh Mozzarella! Also had the baked French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and an Ice-Cold Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain E English Muffin, fried several slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, and a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Colby Longhorn Cheese. Build your Sandwich and Eat! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. When I went out to grab the morning paper we had a light rain and about 58 degrees. The light rain turned into some heavy showers and a high in the mid 70’s. After Breakfast I started doing the laundry for Mom. After Lunch I was going to go see Dad but the rains kept me in. Tough getting out when it rains hard, I get drenched by the time I get my wheelchair out of the trunk. So did some cleaning around the house. For Dinner tonight its Leftover – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese and Italian Round Loaf Bread.

 

As usual when I make the Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese dish I have the leftovers the next day. So for Dinner tonight its Leftovers! Below is the original post of Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese and La Brea Multi Grain Bread, which contains ingredients and directions.

 

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger 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 cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

I’ve prepared this many times now, sometimes I make it using Chicken but Shrimp is my favorite. Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese. It comes with the Pasta Parm Sauce 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! Love these Semi-Homemade Meals! I also reheated a couple of slices of La Brea Multi Grain Bread.
