Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees, humid, and rain showers outside today. After Breakfast I picked a friend of mine up and we went out to Ross, Ohio back out to the produce markets there. We got 1/2 Runner Green Beans, White Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, and Watermelons. Back home started to do some yard work but it started raining again. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

So it’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s 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 Non Stick 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 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

As I said 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 the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack tonight I’m having a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken

 

 

To start this Sunday morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a hot one out there today! We had a heat index of 107 degrees. Light Rain and high winds came through in the late afternoon and cooled it off a bit. Not much going on today, did laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken.

I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always taste even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in!

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up a Kroger Rotisserie Whole Chicken. We love Rotisserie Chicken, delicious and easy to prepare. When it was time for Dinner I heated the oven on 325 degrees. Got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Took the Chicken out of the package and into the baking pan. Reheat it for 30 minutes. After the Chicken cooled a bit I pulled all the Chicken from the bones and it was ready to serve!

To serve made a bed of the Pasta and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and some more of the Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing. The Pasta Salad and Rotisserie Chicken are a perfect combination. The Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor for the Pasta and the Rotisserie Chicken was seasoned perfectly! I enjoy Simple and Delicious Meals so much! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 81 degrees and partly cloudy outside today. After Breakfast I tried going to see my Uncle in the hospital but they are only letting direct family members in. They need to get back to the normal soon. Got the cart out and did a little yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

Fried Oysters w/ Italian Pasta Salad

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Italian Pasta Salad

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 74 degrees and partly sunny out today. After Breakfast I went to Walmart, stopped by a local Lawn and Garden Center, and had the car washed. Mom went back to Church this morning, first time in a couple of months. She was so happy to see all her friends! Not a lot going on, just kicked around the house doing a few things. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Italian Pasta Salad. (Camera stopped working, again. So no plate shot.)

 

As usual 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 the bag, and then shake.

 

Next, heat the Extra Light Olive 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 Oyster 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 the frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some McCormick’s Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

Then to go with the Oysters I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always tastes even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in! Oysters and Italian Pasta Salad makes a good combo! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe:
Ingredients:

12 large-medium Oysters, shucked
1 tablespoon Flour
1 Eggs, beaten or 1/4 cup egg Beater’s
1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges, optional
Hot sauce, optional
Seafood Cocktail Sauce, optional

Preparation:

Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.

1 – Dip drained oysters in flour, then beaten eggs, shake off excess, and in panko crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: 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.

2 – Heat canola oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.

3 – 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.

Makes 2 servings.

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a freeze warning for this morning, 29 degrees out. 52 degrees and cloudy with showers moving in late. My Sinuses have let up a little so I was able to function better! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later on I got the vacuum out and attached the long hose to it. Then I went around to all the heating vents and removed them from the floor. I then got the sweeper and used the long hose to vacuum the dust out of them. I was amazed at all the dust that came out of the vents. I’ll have to start doing this more often. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

We love Spaghetti and Meatballs! So it’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs.

Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken and Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. It was a snowy morning around here today. It was windy and we had about 1/2 inch on the ground. By noon it had quit snowing and the sun came out. Still windy but most of the snow melted away, good thing there! I took Mom up to Kroger, she just needed a few things. Back home did laundry and cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken and Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always taste even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

 

Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in!

 

 

 

 

While at Kroger I had Mom pick up a Kroger Rotisserie Whole Chicken. We love Rotisserie Chicken, delicious and easy to prepare. When it was time for Dinner I heated the oven on 325 degrees. Got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Took the Chicken out of the package and into the baking pan. Reheat it for 30 minutes and served.

 

 

 

 

To serve made a bed of the Pasta and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and some more of the Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing. The Pasta Salad and Rotisserie Chicken are a perfect combination. The Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor for the Pasta and the Rotisserie Chicken was seasoned perfectly! I also had a slice of the some Garlic Bread Loaf left over from last night’s Dinner. I enjoy simple and Delicious Meals so much!

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I microwaved a Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Back to cloudy and 40 degrees outside today. We need a few days of Sunshine! After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer, needed quite a few items. Back home it was freezer purge day. We have a stand up freezer that Mom uses and she wanted me to go through it and get rid of any items that were outdated. Had everything done so I took a late afternoon nap, my sinuses are running wild today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

 

Wasn’t sure what to have for Dinner till I came across the Meatballs in the freezer. So it’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 37 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. After I had my Tea I headed out to the Grocery Store. I first went to Kroger for Mom and then on to Meijer for a few items. Back home cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Spent the rest of the day watching NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I didn’t want the leftovers to go to waste from Thursday night’s Dinner so I reheat the Meatball Pasta Bake. Just as good the 2nd time! I left the original post from the other night for directions and description. Enjoy!

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 425 degrees. To prepare it was easy! I used the Leftover Meijer Turkey Meatballs in the LaRosa’s Sauce. I put those in a sauce pan and reheated them on medium low, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Meatballs and Sauce was heating I made my Pasta. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it 3/4 full of water, added the Salt to the water. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and stirred; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. I removed the Pasta just before it was done. It will finish in the oven without getting over cooked. Drain well.

 

 

 

I added the Pasta to casserole glass dish. Reseason with the Salt and added the Oregano and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Stirred until well mixed. Next I added Meatballs and Sauce and stirred until the Pasta was well coated with the Sauce and the Meatballs mixed in.

 

 

 

Topped everything with the Mozzarella Cheese and Oregano. Popped it in the preheated oven. and baked for about 20 minutes. I really wanted all those flavors to marry together. Before removing from the oven I switched it on to the broiler and left it in the oven another 3 minutes to get the Cheese a little brown on top. Done and ready to serve!

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl, I topped it with a sprinkle of the Grated Parmesan Cheese. One delicious dish! By making extra Meatballs in Sauce I got 2 delicious meals out of it. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish, especially Pasta Dishes!

Today’s Menu: Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 3 slices of Glier’s Turkey Goetta, fried 1 medium Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Finally found the Glier’s Turkey Goetta on my last visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love Goetta! Cloudy with rain showers late in the afternoon, high of 44 degrees. Went to Kroger for Mom after Breakfast. When I got to Kroger it was busy but the time I left it was packed. I’ll be glad when the Holidays are over and stores get back to normal. Gave Mom a hand in making Chocolate Fudge, Buckeyes, and Chex Mix. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 425 degrees. To prepare it was easy! I used the Leftover Meijer Turkey Meatballs in the LaRosa’s Sauce. I put those in a sauce pan and reheated them on medium low, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Meatballs and Sauce was heating I made my Pasta. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it 3/4 full of water, added the Salt to the water. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and stirred; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. I removed the Pasta just before it was done. It will finish in the oven without getting over cooked. Drain well.

 

 

 

 

I added the Pasta to casserole glass dish. Season again with the Salt and added the Oregano and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Stirred until well mixed. Next I added Meatballs and Sauce and stirred until the Pasta was well coated with the Sauce and the Meatballs mixed in.

 

 

 

 

 

Topped everything with the Mozzarella Cheese and Oregano. Popped it in the preheated oven. and baked for about 20 minutes. I really wanted all those flavors to marry together. Before removing from the oven I switched it on to the broiler and left it in the oven another 3 minutes to get the Cheese a little brown on top. Done and ready to serve!

 

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl, I topped it with a sprinkle of the Grated Parmesan Cheese. One delicious dish! By making extra Meatballs in Sauce I got 2 delicious meals out of it. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish, especially Pasta Dishes! This made one excellent Dish. The Penne Rigate Pasta along with Turkey Meatballs, Sauce, and the Mozzarella Cheese all come together to make this dish so delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple.
