Today’s Menu: Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Baked Potato

 

 

To start my morning off I had Steak and Eggs. I love these SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon! To prepare it I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. It came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also as usual, had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 


32 degrees out to start the morning and had a high of 50 degrees with partly cloudy skies. Went to Kroger after Breakfast, just needed a couple of items. Then to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Mom went on to Church and I stayed home and kept an eye on Dad. Dad and the Dementia is getting worse with each passing day and nothing we can do about it. So for Dinner it was a Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast.

 

 

 

For Dinner tonight it’s the always delicious SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. I love this Chopped Steak. To start I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare it I’ll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, McCormick Crushed Rosemary, and McCormick Thyme Leaves (all seasoning to taste). I got the Cast Iron Skillet out to prepare it. I first sprayed it with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the pan was heated I added the Chopped Steak. I cooked each side 2 minutes.Then finished it in the oven, at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. It cooked up beautifully, perfect medium rare! Had a nice little char on the outside and moist and juicy inside. These are so tender you could slice them with a spoon and have an excellent taste to them. Another very good item from SayersBrook Ranch! I topped the Chopped Steak with some A-1 Sauce Thick/Hardy. Also cooked up some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Garlic Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Stuffed Clams w/ Sliced Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and Baked Crescent Rolls

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared my favorite Breakfast; Hash Browns, Diced Ham, and a Egg. 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. It’s above zero to start the day, 40 degrees! For the day its cloudy and a high near 60. They say 60 degrees tomorrow also but we have a chance of getting between 6-10 inches of snow Friday and Saturday. It just depends on how the storm comes in. We usually miss the big amounts of snow through this part of the Ohio Valley, wait and see. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Did a few things around the house and that was it for my day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Stuffed Clam w/ Sliced Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and Baked Crescent Rolls.

 

I purchased The Stuffed Clams from the Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they carry in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often and love having them! For the Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right, with a side of Louisiana Remoulade Sauce. It’s the perfect dip for all Seafood.

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of the Del Monte Products, always delicious and they store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them; boiled until heated and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes.

 

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams

Set Sail for Something Different for Dinner Tonight!
It’s the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Instead of reaching for another steak, pork chop, or that old standby, chicken nuggets for the kids, set sail for something different:
a bounty of delicious options from under the sea.

With families today looking for healthier and more flavorful meal options than ever before, seafood lovers young and old will enjoy discovering new items in the frozen seafood section that are convenient, affordable and tasty. That’s why, Matlaw’s, creator of America’s #1 Seafood Appetizer, has introduced a full line of products that the whole family will love.

From classic New England Style, Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo or Chili Lime Stuffed Clams served in a natural clam shell; to Crispy Original, Barbecue, or Coconut Popcorn Shrimp; and Southwest Tortilla Breaded Cod, Jalapeño Breaded Cod, or Pubstyle Battered Cod, these exciting new flavor combinations are sure to have family members asking for more every night of the week.

For many families the Stuffed Clams have become a favorite. Each natural clamshell is filled with a delectable matlaws breadcrumb stuffing with clams, green and red peppers, and delicate spices, and individually frozen to insure freshness and flavor. They’re great on the grill and so easy to prepare. Instead of turning on the oven and heating up the kitchen, simply wrap in a foil “boat” and place right on the grill on medium heat for 25 minutes. Pair with a crunchy green salad and top with butter and lemon, (or a dash of hot sauce for the truly adventurous), is all it takes to satisfy the family.

Today’s Menu: Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Fire – Roasted Corn Blend, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we had a high around 44 degrees today! Mostly cloudy along with a light shower, beats below zero and snow! Most of the ice and snow melted but now we have more coming in Friday and Saturday. I took advantage of the warm-up and went to Meijer and Kroger, feels so good to get out! I purchased most of my items from Meijer and stopped Kroger for Mom but ended up buying some Seafood and tonight’s Dinner of Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Fire – Roasted Corn Blend, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

I know all the guys in the Kroger Meat Department and they told me I had to try the Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts. And they did look great so I bought 3 of them for our Dinner tonight. Nice looking Breasts, split and stuffed with Asparagus Spears and a slice of Cheddar Cheese. All I did was season them with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, I also sprayed the tops with a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray.

 

 

 

To prepare them I first preheated the oven on 350 degrees. Next I got a glass baking dish and sprayed it with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. Lined the Chicken Breasts up in the dish and when the oven was ready I baked them. Baked them until they had an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about minutes.

 

 

 

 

They came out of the oven looking incredible! And what a Chicken Dish! The Chicken was moist and tender. Then the Stuffed Asparagus and Cheddar Cheese was a perfect stuffing. As I had said it was the first time I tried these and not the last, they make an excellent meal.

 

 

 

 

 


For one side dish I prepared the Little Potato Co. Savory Herb Potatoes. We love these! The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a can of Del Monte Fire-Roasted Corn Blend. Just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated it on medium heat, stirring often until heated through. First time trying this also. The Corn was mixed with Onion, Garlic, and Sea Salt. Makes a very good Corn side dish. I also baked a loaf of LaBrea Multi Grain Bread Loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Del Monte Whole Kernel Fire-Roasted Corn Blend
Whole Kernel Fire-Roasted Corn Blend Perfectly Seasoned Our perfectly prepared Golden Super Sweet Corn is combined with smoky fire-roasted corn and seasoned with onion, garlic and a dash of sea salt for a simply delicious side dish.

Peppercorn and Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans

Today’s Menu: Peppercorn and Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this morning i toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped it with a Poached Egg and I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Yesterday morning was cold and this morning its even colder! It’s a minus 8 degrees. It was sunny out today but only a high of 18 degrees. So with the cold weather outside I stayed indoors. Today was computer cleanup day. Cleaned off the desk and did some rearranging. Then I did some computer cleaning and maintenance. Ran all the scans, deleted old files, and up dated some passwords. Then I unhooked everything and cleaned the inside of the processor. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Peppercorn and Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans.

 

 

 

I purchased the Pork Tenderloin at our local Kroger up the road. It’s a Smithfield Pork Tenderloin. Usually I use my Cumin Spiced Rub when having a Pork Tenderloin so I thought I would give the Peppercorn and Herb Rub a try. To prepare it I’ll need; the Pork Tenderloin, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, and Dried Thyme.

 

 

 

To prepare it; preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients, except the Peppercorn, in a small bowl. Next rub a light coat of Extra Light Olive Oil all over the Pork. Then rub the combined ingredients on all sides of the Pork. I then got a plate, and got the McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley and ground the Peppercorn on to the plate. Took the Pork Tenderloin and rolled in the Peppercorn. I then let the Pork rest for 5 minutes. As that was resting I got a Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the Skillet on medium high heat. Add the Pork to the skillet and cook 2 minutes per side. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. That’s one excellent Pork Tenderloin! Moist, juicy, and love the seasoning. The Peppercorn Medley gives it great flavor and a nice crust. Served it with Horseradish Sauce and baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread.

 


For one side I prepared Potatoes; the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

For another side I heated up a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a few of cans of this at a nearby Walmart, they carry a good selection of a lot of the Margaret Holmes Products. To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. And I have delicious side dish! I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are delicious, love the Seasoning. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread. So easy to prepare and no clean up. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Purple Asparagus and Diced New Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this Monday morning I prepared a Potato and Ham Skillet. I prepared a bag of the Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes. Midway through the cooking time I added a 1/2 bag of Kroger Brand Diced Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit cooler out there this morning, 26 degrees and cloudy. But as the day went on we finally got some sunshine and 44 degrees for a high. After Lunch I made a few Christmas Candy drop offs to some friends. That was about it for my day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Purple Asparagus and Diced New Potatoes.

 

 

I picked a Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chops at Meijer yesterday. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. They have some of the finest Pork Chops you can find.

 

 

 

 

 

So to prepare my Chop I’ll need my favorite Pork Rub; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist!

 

I picked up more of the Purple Asparagus at Mejier, of course. It tastes like Green Asparagus but it’s less fibrous and sweeter due to a higher sugar content. I prepared it the same way as the Roasted Asparagus I’ve made before. I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the bacon, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and olive oil and toss to coat. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and that slight sweet taste to it. Really like the Purple Asparagus over the Green Asparagus!

 

For another side it was Del Monte Diced New Potatoes. I’ve had these many times and as always, delicious! To prepare these; empty the Potatoes into a small sauce pan and heat on medium heat until heated through. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Sliced Potatoes

 

 

To start this cloudy Monday morning off I prepared a Thin Cut Breakfast Pork Chop. Seasoned it with Salt and Pepper then rolled it in flour. Fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 minutes per side. Then I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What better way to start a Gloomy Monday morning! Cloudy and 48 degrees outside, and a passing shower. Gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry and that about it for the day. I had a Sinus Headache that would not quit all day. So it was a lot of rest today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Sliced Potatoes.

 

Nothing like a Wild Idea Buffalo Steak! So tonight I’m having a Wild Idea 6 oz. Fine Cut Buffalo Sirloin. I had the Sirloin in the freezer so I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the it I rubbed the Steak with a teaspoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated a Skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender.

 

For one side I heated up a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a few of cans of this at a nearby Walmart, they carry a good selection of a lot of the Margaret Holmes Products. To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. And I have delicious side dish! I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are delicious, love the Seasoning.

 

 

 

For another side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Products, always delicious and they store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them; boiled until heated and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Texas Toast Light. For Dessert later a Weight watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast on this Saturday Morning I prepared a Hash Brown Turkey Sausage Crumble Skillet with Toast and that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. And as cold as it is out there this morning that hot cup of Tea tastes pretty good! On to the skillet. I picked up a bag of Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Crumbles while at Kroger yesterday. I’ve used these before but it’s been a while. I first started by preparing some Simply Potatoes. If I ever stop eating the Simply Potato Products their stock value will drop like a rock! Halfway through the cooking time I added a 1/4 cup of the Turkey Crumbles. Stirred them into the Hashbrowns and continued cooking until both were heated through and ready to serve. Served them with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Wheat Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another cold start to the day at 20 degrees. Spent most of the day straightening up Mom’s Junk closet for her, it was a mess! Did a few other things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Mac and Cheese

 


To prepare my Fried Oysters I’ll need; 1 can Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, 1 tablespoon Flour, 1/4 cup Egg Beaters, 1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste), 2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil. Hot sauce, Seafood Cocktail Sauce are all optional.

 

 

 

 

I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

 

Next, heat Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. I don’t know why I don’t have these more often! They’re so delicious, golden brown, and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

 

To go with the Oysters I prepared a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup, one of my favorites. Just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Zesty Herbs and Spice Fire Grilled Wings w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made what’s become my favorite Breakfast. I fried 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. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 54 degrees out, some rain showers moving in for tomorrow. Cleaned the house today, vacuum and dusted. Then did some work on the computer. Dusted and cleaned then ran all the scans and deleted old files. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Zesty Herbs and Spice Fire Grilled Wings w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Texas Toast (Light).

 

I had tried the Cooked Perfect Buffalo Wings last week and loved them. So this week I’m trying the Cooked Perfect Zesty Herbs and Spice Fire Grilled Wings. They come Seasoned in Thyme, Sage, and Peppers. They come frozen so you can prepare them in the microwave or in the oven, I went with the oven method.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 375° F.Grab a baking sheet, line with Foil, and spray it with with Pam Cooking Spray. Place the Wings on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes, turn the Wings, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes before serving. These are just as good as the Buffalo Wings, if not better! Served with some Litehouse Lite Blue Cheese Dressing.

 

 

 

I could just have the Wings but Mom and Dad always have to have at least one side dish so I prepared a carton of the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. A favorite I always pick while at Meijer are the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. We have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up. I also boiled some Green Giant Mini Eras of Sweet Corn. You can’t beat this corn, best there is! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
