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: 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, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Love this Breakfast to start my day! It was already 80 degrees by 9:00 this morning and humid. Had a high of 90 degrees. After Lunch I did some more cleaning of the shed, I’m almost done finally! Got the Cart out and did a few things around the yard. We’re having trouble with our grass Cutting Service, I guess we’ll have to make a change. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine,Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

I was going to prepare Ribs for Memorial Day but Mom wanted to go to a grill out with friends so we’ll have the Ribs later. 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 a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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.

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.

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.

 

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 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 – 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’ll be having the leftovers for my Dinner tomorrow night! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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

 

 

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. For Dinner tonight its Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

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.

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

 

For my Breakfast this morning I had purchased a package of Thin Cut Pork Cops from Meijer yesterday and having them this morning. I just prepared the whole package for myself and Mom and dad. Their cut real thin so they aren’t very big at all. 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.
