Today’s Menu: Cilantro Lime Buffalo Skirt Steak Pita Bread Wrap w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice


Dreary and rainy day today, and turning cooler! A while back I had ordered a 16 oz. Cilantro Lime Skirt Steak from Wild Idea Buffalo and I’ve finally got around to prepare it. For dinner tonight a Cilantro Lime Buffalo Skirt Steak Pita Bread Wrap w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.


Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak Pita Bread 002
First time I’ve used the Wild Idea Buffalo Cilantro Lime Skirt Steak. It’s a 16 oz. Skirt Steak and it comes marinated in a Cilantro Lime Marinade that’s made up with Tomatillo, Lime Juice, Cilantro, Garlic, Olive Oil, Salt, Cumin, Cardamon, Cayenne Pepper, and Black Pepper. Which all combines into one fine Marinade. it was sliced thin into several pieces. I pan fried it in Extar Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with a couple of shakes of Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Being cut so thin it fried up really quick, about 2 or 3 minutes per side. It really browned up nice and the flavor was incredible! The Marinade is a perfect one from Wild Idea Buffalo. After it was done I then sliced it into thin strips for the Pita Bread.

I used Joseph’s Flax Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Pita Bread, my favorite by far with 60 calories and 4 net carbs. To assemble, besides my Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak, I used Shredded Lettuce, fresh grated Monterey Jack Cheese, Sliced Black Olives, and a Freestone Peach and Mango Salsa. The Salsa was a Kroger Brand Private Selection, 20 calories and 4 carbs. Layered everything on the Pita Bread, which I folded into a Wrap. To go with the Wrap I heated a bag of Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Ready Rice. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa

Wow I tried Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa for the first time and I’m going to have to make room for another Salsa! My favorite is still Newman's Own Pineapple SalsaNewman’s Own Black Bean and Corn Salsa but the Pineapple is awfully close! It’s a completely different Salsa than the Black Bean and Corn. It’s got a little heat from the Jalapenos and then you have the sweetness from the Pineapple, it ends up a perfect match for a Salsa. This would go good over your Eggs at Breakfast or at dinner for a topping for your Baked Potato. I’ll be adding this to the Pantry Stock for sure.

Aloha-peno! A little sweet with a bit of heat.

Today’s Menu: Glazed Grilled Chicken Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Grilled Asparagus Spears, and Whole Grain Bread

A perfect day outside and fired the grill up! i grilled Miller Amish Boneless Chicken Breast with a Heinz 57 Sauce/Honey Glaze. You think it sounds good, it tastes even better! Grilled the Breasts about 30 minutes and after flipping the Breasts after 15 minutes brushed the Glaze on with about 10 minutes left. The Glaze recipe is just two ingredients, Honey and Heinz 57 Sauce (the recipe is at the nd of the post). Along with the Chicken I had sides of Grilled Asparagus Spears and Idahoan Homestyle Mashed Potatoes along with Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Sauce really set the Chicken off, give it a try. For dessert/snack later some Fiesta Salsa along with Chip‘ins Pop Corn Chips.

Today’s Menu: Broiled Mahi Mahi w/   Long Grain and Wild Rice,  Mango/Pineapple Salsa, Cut Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

What a dinner! I bought a huge Mahi Mahi fillet and cut it into three fillets for myself and my Mom and Dad. I seasoned the fillets with Sea Salt and Pepper and drizzled them with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I broiled the fillets for 5 minutes per side. They turned out perfect! I used Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Rice. At the end of the post I’ll leave the Mango/Pineapple Salsa recipe and instructions. A really easy and tasty recipe that goes great with Seafood or Pork recipes. The Green Beans were leftover from last night’s dinner and I also had Healthy life Whole Grain Bread. Dessert later tonight a cup of Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.


Mango/Pineapple Salsa


2 Cups Chunked or diced Mango. I used Dole Mango Chunks
1 Cup Pineapple diced
Juice of a 1/4 Lime, Use a fresh Lime if you can if not Lime Juice will work
2 Tbsp Finely Chopped Cilantro
Salt, to taste

* Combine all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving
* This goes good over a Sugar Free Angel Food Cake also.
