Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Had another bout with Phantom Pains. It made for a sleepless and very long night! The Phantom Pains finally let up around 11:00 this morning. Oh how I wish there was a cure for these. Here’s a little on Phantom Pains – Phantom pain is pain that feels like it’s coming from a body part that’s no longer there. Doctors once believed this post-amputation phenomenon was a psychological problem, but experts now recognize that these real sensations originate in the spinal cord and brain. And I can tell you the pain is as if my left leg was really there, very painful. So anyway I didn’t do much of anything today. Outside its showers and thunderstorms on and off through out the day and 88 degrees. Good day to catch up on some rest and sleep, and that was my day. For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread.

 

I wanted a hot meal but one that was easy to prepare. The Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli doesn’t get much easier and at the same time a very tasty meal. It comes in a can and to prepare it; just empty contents into medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot. And it’s done! Doesn’t get much easier than that. Delicious, easy to prepare, and 1 sauce pan to clean. Nice size Ravioli, good tasting Tomato and Cheese Sauce, and love the Cheese that’s in the Ravioli. Makes a good hot meal. And it’s only 180 calories and 28 net carbs per serving. I topped it with a sprinkle of Basil and Shaved Parmesan Cheese. It’s 210 calories and 36 net carbs per serving.

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta

 

To start this morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and made the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Walgreen’s and picked up a Prescription and then to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. It really hasn’t rained a lot of late and the yards are starting to turn brown. Outside today it’s 87 degrees and sunny. After Lunch got the cart out and did some yard work. Later took a spin around the neighborhood. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Haddock w/ Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta.

 

 

I had purchased a Haddock fillet from Kroger a while back and had it in the freezer. I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I sliced it in half. So to prepare it I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until both pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.

 

To go with my Seasoned Haddock I prepared a new dish, Knorr Pasta Sides Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta. I had heard of the Knorr Products but had never tried them until now. To prepare it; In medium saucepan, bring 1-1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup 2% milk and 1 Tbsp. of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Stir in contents of package and return to a boil. Reduce heat and continue boiling gently for 10 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 Cheese flavor. I also baked a loaf of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Parmigiana and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

To start this July 5th morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’ve had the Garlic and Herb Hash Browns a few times now and really like them. After eating and doing the dishes I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Later on finished touching up a couple of the shutters outside. Then a high school Friend of mine that owns a Land Scape Business came over and gave me an estimate on some new land scape for our front yard. I’m wanting to take out all the old Knockout Roses in the front flower bed and the side bed. Replace them with some type of bushes. Still thinking it over but he gave us an estimate so we’ll see. For Dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Parmigiana and Texas Toast (Light).

 

Well I’m trying something new I cam across at Meijer yesterday, Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmigiana. I was browsing through the Meijer Frozen Foods Department, looking for something new. And I came across the Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmigiana. The picture on the box along with the description of the dish had me sold!

 

 

 

 

To prepare it you either bake it or microwave it, as most times I’m baking it. To start I preheat the oven to 400°F. Removed the tray from the carton. Placed the tray on a cookie sheet. Cooked with the film on for 50 minutes. Removed it from the oven and removed the film, let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s surprising just how delicious this is! The Breaded Chicken is fantastic, the Breading of the Chicken was excellent,  the Seasoning is spot on, and Spaghetti came out tender. Put all that together and you have one delicious Chicken Parmigiana! They have 13 different Family Dinners and I’m looking forward to trying them!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Parmigiana and baked us some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I made some 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. Love this Breakfast to start my day! We have an excessive heat warning out for the 2nd straight day. 94 degrees out but the heat index is at 108 degrees. After Breakfast I went grocery shopping at Meijer. On the way back I picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for Mom. Back home I painted a couple of shelves out in the shed. I’ve got 3 more to paint but it got too hot in the shed to finish, I’ll finish tomorrow. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine,Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

 

So 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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Green Tea Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church and I went to the Cemetary to put flowers on Dad’s Grave for Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there! I decided to take a ride over to our old house in Ross, Ohio. When we left Ross back in the early 80’s it was just starting to grow. And now it’s still growing! A ton of changes compared to how it was back then. Still a beautiful small town though! Back home did a couple of loads of laundry and did a little cleaning outside. But it is hot and humid out. 99 degrees and a heat index well over 100 degrees today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

A section of the Jungle Jim’s Deli

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I came across on a WordPress Blog (The Cooking Diaries) and it sounded and looked delicious. Plus it looked light and fresh, which is how I like hot weather dishes! I needed a few items to make the dish so I went to Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday. They are the only store in area anymore that carries the Ronzoni Smart or Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta Products. I love shopping at Jungle Jim’s! They carry Anything and Everything, I’m serious! You could spend an entire day in there. The Deli, Produce, and Seafood Departments are my favorites.

 

 

 

So to make the Dish I’ll need; 1 can Pink Salmon (Fresh or Canned), Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, Ronzoni Garden Delight Trio Italiano Pasta, Sliced Black Olives, a few small Anchovy Slices in Olive Oil, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and 1 tube Just Add Basil Pesto. I added a few Ingredients and dropped an Ingredient from the original recipe, the original recipe and the web link are at the end of the post.

 

 

To prepare it; I first made my Pasta. Boil the Pasta according to the box; drain the Pasta and let it cool. Once cooled add the Pasta to a large bowl and add all the ingredients and fold in everything including the can of Pink Salmon. You can warm the Salmon if you prefer before adding it. Put the Pasta Salad in a large plastic bowl with a lid and set it in the fridge until your ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

The Pasta, Salmon, and Pest went great together! Everything tasted light and fresh. Excellent Dish. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I first toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Then I lightly fried a few thin-cut slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham. As the Ham was finishing cooking I added a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Then I also I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it was sunny and 59 degrees, nice day out. They say the 70’s and low 80’s starting Monday, hope they are right! Anyway after Breakfast I went to Kroger for a couple of items then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church after Breakfast. I did a couple of loads of laundry for her then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. Later on got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Before I made Dinner I went to see Dad for a bit. He has good days and bad days, was doing good today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 


I tried something a little different tonight, Buffalo Italian Sausage Lasagna. I used a 1 lb. package of Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage and a box of Hamburger Helper Lasagna. Using the Buffalo Italian Sausage in place of the Hamburger. To prepare it I just followed the instructions on the Lasagna box to prepare it. The box contained the Sauce Mix and Pasta and I added 1 lb. of Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage, 2 3/4 cups of hot Water, and 1/2 cup of 2% White Milk.

 

 

I just browned the Ground Sausage, drained and removed from heat. Then stirred in the Sauce Mix and hot water until dissolved. Stir in the Milk and Pasta. Returned to heat , and heated until boiling. Reduced the heat. Cover, and simmer about 12 minutes (Stirring occasionally). When the Pasta got tender removed from the heat and served! Came out really tasty! Good flavor and seasoning.

 

 

 

The Pasta came out tender and went perfect with the Ground Buffalo Italian Sausage substitute.I topped it with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Cheese and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. It made 5 servings so plenty of leftovers for Dinner tomorrow. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. It turned out to be a Comfort Food Dinner, can’t wait to have it again. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

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.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast I had 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. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 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.

 

 

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.

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.
