Today’s Menu: Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread

 

 

Started the morning off with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The high humidity has finally moved out of our area. Sunny and 79 degrees out. I headed out early to Meijer, I needed a few items for Dinner tonight. One item I needed was Fresh Sea Scallops. I was told that Meijer was no longer carrying Fresh Scallops, only frozen. So I left there and headed for Kroger. Kroger had Fresh Sea and Bay Scallops, so I bought some of Both. Anymore Kroger is better stocked than Meijer! Back home I got the cart out and cleaned around the yard and flower beds. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread.

 

For the Linguine I used Barilla Whole Grain Linguine. To prepare it I got a medium sized pot and added water to fill just over 1/2 of it. Added Salt and brought it to a boil. When it was a rolling boil Added the Linguine. Boiled for 8 minutes and removed it from the heat and seasoned it again with a bit of Sea Salt and some dried Oregano.

 

As I said, I purchased the Sea Scallops at Kroger earlier. I washed the Scallops and had them in a Hefty Zip Bag in the fridge. As my Linguine was cooking I prepared the Scallops. The Scallops were in a plastic bag and added to a bowl. I then 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 with 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 for 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!

 

To serve the Dish, in a bowl I made a bed of the just cooked Linguine. Sprinkled some Sea Salt and Grated Parmesan Cheese to the   Linguine. Then I added those Delicious Scallops to top it off! Oh what  Dish! The  Linguine was so good and the Sweet Meat taste of the Scallops, the perfect match! I had also baked a loaf of Garlic Bread, great with any meal! For Dessert/Snack later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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

Today’s Menu: Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up one of my favorites, Glier’s Turkey Goetta. I love Turkey Goetta, to me it’s just so Delicious and perfect for Breakfast. Every Time I go to Jungle Jim’s I pick up a couple of rolls of it. Jungle Jim’s is the only store that carries it around here. They also had Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns. Again Jungle Jim’s is the only one that has them in stock. Anyway, the perfect Breakfast! 78 degrees yesterday in the mid forties with one cold wind blowing. Did a few things around the house and that was it for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread.

 

For the Linguine I used Barilla Whole Grain Linguine. It’s been a awhile since I’ve had this. To prepare it I got a medium sized pot and added water to fill just over 1/2 of it. Added Salt and brought it to a boil. When it was a rolling boil Added the Linguine.

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

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 68 degrees and partly sunny. After my Tea I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home I got the cart and yard tools out and worked on the back yard. It’s a mess between the hard Winter and Moles! Later I ordered new Wood Chips from the local Boy Scouts. I order every year from them. They’ll deliver it in late April. For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

Didn’t feel like making a big meal but 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 Baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Loaf Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

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

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Started off at 55 degrees but it fell through out the day to around 45 degrees, rain on and off all day. Not up to par today, Sinus Headache most of the day. Did a few things around the house and took a couple of naps. Hopefully up to par tomorrow. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

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 for Lunch. Nice seasoning, the Pasta is so tender, 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 bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another perfect Fall Day outside today! 67 degrees and sunny out. Spent the day outside working on the yard. I got my cart out and the yard tools. I had a guy till part of our backyard the other day. So I bought some grass seed and a couple of bales of hay. I first watered the area and then got the grass seed down. I then spread the hay over the area. Then I finished cleaning the shed and getting items stored for the upcoming Winter. It felt good to be out all day. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. 58 degrees, sunny and windy out today. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the Kitchen today.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea this morning for Breakfast. 77 degrees, sunny and beautiful out today! Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Then I did a load of laundry. After Lunch it was outside to do some work. Got the leaf blower, rake, and cart out of the shed. It’s a perfect day to be outdoors! I enjoy doing yard work, good exercise and you get to be outside. For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni. Another one of those delicious One Pot Meals that is too good to not use the Leftovers! I’ve left the original post from last night below for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Turkey has less Calories, Carbs, and Fat, healthier and more delicious. To go along with the Chili Macaroni I had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light.

 

So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

As I started the Ground Turkey was finishing I got the Chili Macaroni ready to add to the Turkey. I started by adding 2 3/4 cups of Hot Water to the Turkey Skillet. Stirred the Water and Ground Turkey and added the Chili Macaroni Pasta Packet. Stirred it all together and increased the heat to medium high, heated until boiling. Covered and reduced the heat to simmer, cooking for 11 minutes. Stirred several times as it cooked. Removed the Skillet from the heat and took the lid off and let it cool for 3 minutes.

 

Fantastic Dish, it was Seasoned perfect, the Pasta was tender and the Ground Turkey and Black Beans were perfect with the Macaroni. Then I also had the slice of Buttered Bread. It made a really good Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyders Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

To start this Thursday Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 75 degrees, sunny and a little humid out today. After Lunch I took my friend out to Ross, Ohio, to the Produce Stands. I bought Mom a couple of Hanging Baskets of Mums. My friend purchased some Flowers and Pumpkins. I love going out to Ross! A small town with tons of Farms and Fields. It will always be my home out there. For Dinner tonight it’s Turkey Chili Macaroni.

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Turkey has less Calories, Carbs, and Fat, healthier and more delicious. To go along with the Chili Macaroni I had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light.

 

So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

As I started the Ground Turkey was finishing I got the Chili Macaroni ready to add to the Turkey. I started by adding 2 3/4 cups of Hot Water to the Turkey Skillet. Stirred the Water  and Ground Turkey and added the Chili Macaroni Pasta Packet. Stirred it all together and increased the heat to medium high, heated until boiling. Covered and reduced the heat to simmer, cooking for 11 minutes. Stirred several times as it cooked. Removed the Skillet from the heat and took the lid off and let it cool for 3 minutes.

 

Fantastic Dish, it was Seasoned perfect, the Pasta was tender and the Ground Turkey and Black Beans were perfect with the Macaroni. Then I also had the slice of Buttered Bread. It made a really good Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees, humid and partly cloudy outside. Did some yard work early before the humidity got bad. Then at 1:00 I had to take Mom over for some new hearing aids. From there we stopped by the Cemetery and put flowers on my Brother’s Grave. Back home swept up outside and the deck. For Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Large Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. 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.

 

To prepare the Buitoni Fettuccine; I filled a large Sauce Pan with 4 quarts Water and a couple of shakes of Morton’s Light Salt. Turned it on high heat. When it was a full boil I added the Fettuccine. Reduced the heat for a gentle boil of the Pasta for 2 minutes, stirred frequently. Removed from the heat and drained the water. Seasoned the Pasta with Extra Light Olive Oil, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Morton’s Light Salt, and Dried Oregano.

 

 

 

To serve, in a bowl, I made a bed of the Fettuccine and topped it with the Shrimp. I love Shrimp and Pasta! The Fettuccine was tender and so delicious. Then with the added Shrimp it just made that much better! I topped it with some Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
