Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts

 

 

For Breakfast this morning for me and Mom I heated up some Ekrich Smoky Turkey Breakfast Sausages, fried some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Scrambled some Eggs, and I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea and Mom some Coffee. A bit cooler out today, 67 degrees and a passing thunderstorm. Did some house cleaning today, vacuum and dusted. Then did some laundry for Mom. I made some Bear Creek Potato Soup and took Dad a couple of bowls over to him at rehab. He’s gaining strength, hopefully he’ll be home before long. For Dinner tonight Leftovers – Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts.

 

 

The meal from last night, Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts, was too good to let those leftovers go to waste! So tonight it’s Leftovers. Everything heated up great and tasted just as good the 2nd time around. I’m really glad I read about the Bear Creek Products! All of them make some good meals. Below is the original post from last night which has the description and cooking instructions for the meal. Later!

 

 

 

Well I’m trying the Bear Creek Alfredo Pasta Mix tonight for Dinner. Love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far so I’m trying the Alfredo Pasta tonight. Comes packaged with the Pasta and Sauce Mix.

 

 

 

To prepare it; I added 4 cups of water to a 2 1/2 quart saucepan and brought to a rolling boil. Whisked in the Pasta and Sauce Mix. Brought it back up to a rolling boil. then reduced the heat to a medium boil. Cooked for 15 minutes, stirring often. Removed it from the heat and let it sit for 8 minutes. The sauce thickened up perfectly. I like my sauces on the thick side and this one turned out great.The Pasta was good size with good taste and as I said the Alfredo Sauce was spot on! Another great dish from Bear Creek to have in the Pantry.

 

 

For the Chicken I used Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts – Italian Style. I love using these, just keep them in the freezer until needed. To prepare them; Lightly coat a skillet with Pam Cooking Spray. Heat the pan over medium-high heat, add breasts and brown 1 minute per side. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 10 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature, turning frequently. Fried and done! These also bake up perfectly also.

 

 

 

 

 

To serve everything I took a bowl and made a bed of the Alfredo Pasta, sliced up 1 of the Chicken Breasts and added them to the top of the Pasta. And topped everything off with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Excellent dish! Past and Chicken is a natural. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts

 

 
To start this sunny morning off I prepared Scrambled Eggs, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not a bad way to start the morning! After Breakfast, Mom had bought some flowers for some pots on the deck so I got them all potted. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the deck and driveway. After Lunch did some light house cleaning then back outside. It’s our warmest day out there today, 85 and mostly sunny. Took a spin on the cart around the neighborhood and got the mail while out. Tried to relax a bit, my back is giving me some problems. Spending too much time lately in cart and wheelchair. For Dinner tonight Alfredo Pasta w/ Chicken Breasts.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

Started my Sunday morning off by toasting a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Then I headed to Meijer for groceries. In the low 40’s this morning but sunny all day and had a high around 75 degrees! Beautiful day out. After Lunch went over to see Dad. I was hoping Dad would get stronger but he seems as though he’s giving up. Can only hope and pray for the best for him. Back home I got the cart out for a while. Did some yard work and got a couple of tables out of storage and put them on the deck. So nice out today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips. To prepare it I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious! Really enjoy these and so easy to prepare and our favorite by far!

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Then for another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Wild Mushroom Ravioli

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went up to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Another overcast day but not as windy out and a high of 51 degrees. Finished up some cleaning today, cleaned the oven and fridge. Still having problems with my thumb, wish this would hurry up and heal! For Dinner tonight I prepared a new item, Three Bridges Wild Mushroom Ravioli. Tonight its Chicken and Wild Mushroom Ravioli.

 

Chicken and Wild Mushroom Ravioli for Dinner. Had this a while back and really liked it. For the Chicken I used Perdue Perfect Portions Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love the Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. Always taste fresh and nice size. To prepare; removed them from the package and seasoned them with Sea Salt and Litehouse Freeze Dried Poultry Herb Blend, my favorite seasoning for Chicken. Then I sprinkled them with a light dusting of Flour. Cooked them in a medium size skillet that was sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried them on medium high heat for about 11 minutes, flipping it over 3 times. Removed from the heat and set aside.As the Chicken was cooking I sliced up some Mushrooms and Sauteed them in the skillet also. Removed from the heat and set aside. After they had cooled I sliced the Chicken Breasts up.

 

 

 

As the Chicken was finishing I prepared the Three Bridges Wild Mushroom Ravioli. First time preparing this and its very easy to prepare. Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil. Add ravioli and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the pot from heat and strain the Ravioli.

 

 

 

Then tossed with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmasen Cheese, 1 tablespoon of Light Olive Oil, and some Buitoni Marinara Sauce. To serve I made a bed of the Ravioli in a bowl and topped it with the sliced Chicken Breast, Sauteed Sliced Mushrooms, and a bit more of the remaining Sauce and a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. The Ravioli is very tender and an excellent Mushroom taste! The Chicken and sauce worked perfect with it. Another very good item I came across at Meijer. I’m always finding new products to try at Meijer. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes crispy-chicken-strips-mashed-potatoesd-cut-italian-green-be-002Steakhouse 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 everything with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar and a fried Sunny Side Up Egg. Very good way to start this chilly Saturday morning. We broke a record high yesterday, 76 degrees, and overnight rain and cold front moves in. Some places actually seen snow flurries! Cold and windy today, even had a chill factor today. Oh this Ohio Weather! So today was a good day to get some laundry and house cleaning done followed by an afternoon of College Football! For Dinner tonight its Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Green Beans.

For Dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Chicken and Parmesan Gnocchi

 

 

 

seasoned-chicken-and-parmesan-gnocchi-015
For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly buttered, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a cold morning today, 31 degrees with ha cold breeze. Had a pretty good frost on the roof tops and low areas. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items. Stopped and got gas on the way home, $1.80 a gallon. Haven’t seen that in a while! Back home ran the vacuum and outside gathered up some leaves around the deck and driveway. Then had to work on the vacuum , guess I’m going to have to take it to be repaired tomorrow. For Dinner tonight I’m trying a new product, Three Bridges Parmesan Gnocchi. Tonight I prepared Seasoned Chicken and Parmesan Gnocchi.

 

Seasoned Chicken Breast w Whole Grain Rotini and Baked Mozzarell 003

For the Chicken I’m using Perdue Perfect Portions Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love the Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. Always taste fresh and nice size. To prepare; removed them from the package and seasoned them with Sea Salt and Litehouse Freeze Dried Poultry Herb Blend. Then I sprinkled them with a light dusting of Flour. Cooked them in a medium skillet that was sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Fried them on medium high heat for about 10 minutes, flipping it over 3 times. Removed from the heat and set aside.

 

seasoned-chicken-and-parmesan-gnocchi-002
As my Chicken was cooking I prepared the Three Bridges Parmesan Gnocchi. I came across this at Meijer the other day and looked good so I bought a package. Its Potato Gnocchi blended with aged Parmesan Cheese. It comes in a sealed plastic box already seasoned with the Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

seasoned-chicken-and-parmesan-gnocchi-011

To prepare I used a medium size pot, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Filled it half way with water and heated it on high till it started to boil and reduced the heat to gentle boil and added the Gnocchi. Cooking it for 3 minutes, stirring often. Removed it from the heat and drained the water. Put it in a large bowl and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Light Olive Oil and added a shake of Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and tossed it in the bowl. A Pesto Sauce would be good but Pestos are high in calories and carbs so I stuck with Olive Oil and Parmesan Cheese.

 

seasoned-chicken-and-parmesan-gnocchi-013
To serve I made a bed of the Gnocchi in a bowl. Then took 1 of the Chicken Breasts and sliced it up and topped the Gnocchi with the Chicken. I really enjoyed this Dinner! The Three Bridges Parmesan Gnocchi was fantastic! Excellent flavor and the Chicken was perfect with it. As I had said I found the Three Bridges Parmesan Gnocchi at Meijer, I’ll be buying more of this. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watchers Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Then for another side I prepared some Bush’s Reduced Sodium Vegetarian Baked Beans. I had tried these a while back and fell in love with the flavor and taste of the Vegetarian Beans! Only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving. To prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Beans! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

crispy-chicken-strips-w-mashed-potatoes-and-cut-green-beans-001
Monday morning! Started the morning off by Scrambling 2 Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom. Then went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Later on ran a couple of errands and then headed up to the hospital to check on a friend of mine. Back home finished up a couple of things around the house. For Dinner tonight I reheated the leftovers from last night, Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 
Had plenty of Leftovers from last night’s Dinner of Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans. Everything was just too good to let it go to waste! Just love the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips. I used think Pilgrims had the best, and it’s still good Chicken, but Perdue has the best now. So an easy prepared Dinner tonight and just as good as the first time. Had a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar for Dessert later. I’ve left the original post from last night below for preparation and description, Enjoy!

 

 

Perdue Crispy Chicken Strips
I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips. To prepare it I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious! Really enjoy these and so easy to prepare!

 

 

 

Mashed Potatoes
For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Then for another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans.
