Today’s Menu: Bacon and Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Shredded Hash Browns

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Having a hard time with my allergies here the last 2 or 3 days. So I’m not quite up to par today with a bad headache. But after I had my Tea I went to the local Kroger here up the road for a few items. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I ran the vacuum and dusted. Then took it easy the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Bacon and Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Shredded Hash Browns.

 

 

I’m having another one of the Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER. I tried this for the first time a while back and loved them! It comes frozen and there’s 3 – 1/3 lb. Burger Patties. The Premium Ground Buffalo is mixed with Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese, and seasoning. I’ll be preparing it as I do all Wild Idea Buffalo Burger. I’m dressing it up a bit this time. To prepare I’ll need; Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese, 1 slice of Boar’s Head Bacon, Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam, and a toasted Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin.

 

 


To start it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, lightly seasoned. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. And as all the Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers it cooked up perfect!

 

 

 

As the Burger was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. By using the Muffin instead of Burger Bun I saved on Calories, Fat, and carbs. I also microwaved a slice of Boar’s Head Bacon.

 

 

 

 

 

To assemble the Burger I took the bottom slice of the Muffin and added some of the Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Next I added the Burger, Bacon Slice, Crumbled Blue Cheese, and the top half slice of the Muffin. And I had one incredible Burger! The Burger its self has bits of Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon in it along with Blue Cheese. Then the added Maytag Blue Cheese, Bacon slice, and Blackberry Jam just put this Burger over the top! That was my last Wild Idea Bacon Blue Burger that I had in the freezer. I’ll be ordering more but right now Wild Idea is out of stock on them.

 

 

The Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese I used is hard to find. I used to buy it at the Kroger Cheese Shop but they no longer carry it. So now I have order it DIRECT from Maytag Dairy Farms (https://www.maytagdairyfarms.com/) I also ordered some of their Cheddar Cheese Spread. Both are so good, the best Blue Cheese that I have ever found!

 

 

 


Then for a side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich w/ Hash Browns

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was one of those long nights dealing with Phantom Pains. They started last night around 10:00 and didn’t finally let up till around 9:00 this morning. I had to be up early anyway I had to have Mom to the Eye Doctor for a follow up on her cataracts removal. She’s already seeing better and the Doc said everything looked fine! The heat wave has started back up! 92 degrees and humid, the heat index is around 101 degrees! I was going to start the touch-up painting on the shed and shutters but just too tired to do it today. Spent the the day catching up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight its a Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sandwich w/ Hash Browns.

 

It’s my 3rd day of Breakfast for Dinner Meals. I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and lightly fried a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty. I topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Chicken Sausage Patty; The Patties are fully cooked so all you have to do is reheat them. I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. Added the Patty to the heated skillet and cooked it for 6 minutes a side. Easy to prepare and delicious! These have such a good taste to them. They’re seasoned with Sage and Thyme. They also have some that are Maple Flavored but these are my favorites!

 

 

 

As the Sausage was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I love using these by their self, Breakfast Sandwiches, Muffin Pizzas, and much more! They’re 100 calories and 16 net carbs per Muffin. I served the Chicken Sausage Patty on the Muffin and topped it with a 1/2 slice of Cheese.

 

 

 

 

To go with my Dinner/Breakfast Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. To prepare these I took a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet. Add potatoes to skillet; Cook 6-7 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Drizzle with an additional 1/4 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. Turn potatoes over with a spatula. Continue to cook 6-8 minutes, and done! I sprinkled some Sargeto Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheese over top of them to serve. Really enjoy these Breakfast/Dinners! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Skillet Potatoes and Ham with a Sunny Side Up Egg

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried an al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty, And had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Menard’s to pick up a small can of Black Paint and then to Kroger and picked up a couple of Donuts for Mom, she wanted Coffee and Donuts for her Breakfast. I needed the paint to touch up the trim of the shed and to touch up a couple of the shutters around the house. A bit hotter and more humid today, 88 degrees and sunny. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Skillet Potatoes and Ham with a Sunny Side Up Egg.

 

 

The 2nd day of Breakfast for Dinner tonight. Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast, I mean Dinner! I’ll need; 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, a package of Meijer Diced Ham, 1 Egg, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

To start I got a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the package of the Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes. I lightly seasoned them with the Salt and stirred. Put the lid on the skillet and let them cook. Using a spatula, I turned them several times so they would cook evenly. Cooked a total of 15 minutes. With about 3 minutes of cooking time left I added the package of Meijer Diced Ham. Stirred and finished the cooking of the Potatoes. When done put them in a large bowl and set it aside.

 

 

As the Potatoes and Ham were finishing I got a small skillet sprayed it with Pam and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Egg. Seasoned it with Salt and Pepper. I grabbed a teaspoon and scooped up some of the Olive Oil and poured it on top of the Yolk. Then put a lid over the skillet and cooked my Egg. Sunny Side Eggs always cook better with a lid over the skillet and a bit of the Oil over them when cooking them. It gives the Yolk a good finish.

 

 

To put the dish together I used a bowl and made a bed of the Potatoes and Ham, seasoned them with a little of the Salt. Sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese on top and then added the Sunny Side Egg. Time to Eat! I love the combo of Potatoes and Ham! Then with Egg topping it off it gave great flavor and tied the dish together. Excellent Dinner tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Tropa – Rock – A Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Sliced Mushrooms, Baked Fingerling Potatoes, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

To start the morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 93 degrees and still humid. Spent the day at the Eye Doctor with Mom. She had cataracts removed from her right eye. She has the left one done in 2 weeks. Ling day, but worth it! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak along with Sliced Mushrooms, O’Brian Shredded Hashbrowns, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400°. In a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to, I heated it over medium high heat. When ready I added my Steaks to it. I cooked the Steaks 1 minute each side. I just wanted a light sear on both sides. Then I moved the Skillet on to the preheated Oven and Roasted it for about 4 minutes. Removed the Skillet from the Oven and placed the Steaks on a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting. The Tri -Tip Steak was super tender and juicy. I had cooked to a medium rare and it came perfect!

 

 

I also prepared some Portabella Mushroom Slices. The slices were thick sliced extra large Portabella Mushrooms.I seasoned with Ground Smoked Cumin, Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Pepper.

Today’s Menu: Bison Steak, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast Breakfast

 

 

To start my Sunday off I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After my Tea I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Finished up some light cleaning around the house. Then after Lunch went and got gas and went to the ATM. On the way home I stopped by a friend of mine I hadn’t seen in a while, good catching up! Lot of rain on and off throughout the day. Felt like having a Big Breakfast for Dinner tonight. I prepared a Bison Fillet, an Egg Sunny Side Up, Hash Browns, and Toast!

 

 

For my Steak I fried up a SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Fillet Mignon. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat.

When done I sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

Today’s Menu: Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast

 

 


For Breakfast this Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. At 10:30 this morning we had to be over at the office of where Dad is staying. We are applying for Medicade for Dad. They seem to want everything you have but your first-born children. Hope we get it worked out, very stressful! Rain showers this morning and very windy. There’s a lot of flooding all over the area, even had a Tornado watch last night. Very windy and a of 40 today, but the wind chill made it about 30. For Dinner tonight I wanted some Breakfast! So Breakfast it is, I prepared Ham, Eggs, Hash Browns, and Toast.

 

 

Breakfast for Dinner sounded perfect for Dinner tonight! I sliced up the rest of our Ham off the bone, I had prepared the Ham the day before. The Ham is so moist and delicious! We used Cook’s Bone In Ham. To prepare it I used a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I then took a few slices of it and reheated it i tin the skillet for about 5 minutes. I love this Ham! It has such good flavor, perfect for Breakfast or Dinner.

 

 

 

Next I used the same skillet and I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg. Fried it on medium low, seasoned with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper.

 

 

 

As the the Ham and Egg were cooking, in another skillet I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I love these, I could have them every day!

Today’s Menu: Egg Sandwich and Hash Browns

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a sleepless night dealing with those Phantom Pains! These are so aggravating. They hurt so bad and not a thing you can do! Outside we got a little over an inch of new snow and 16 degrees. We had a high of 30 degrees and more snow this afternoon. Can’t do anything outside so I tried catching up on some sleep after the Phantom Pains stopped around noon. For Dinner tonight it’s an Egg Sandwich and Hash Browns.

 

I love Egg Sandwiches! hadn’t made these in years until a while back and enjoyed it so much I’m going to have it more often. To make it all I’ll need is 2 Eggs, Salt and Pepper, a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar, a bit of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Just get a mixing cup or coffee cup and crack open both Eggs into it. Season it with the Salt and Pepper and whisk it all together.

 

 

 

 

Heat a small skillet on medium heat, I sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I added the Butter, and when heated added the Egg Mixture. Fry it till the bottom browns and flip it. I then added my slice of Cheese on top of it. Cook until dome, and it’s ready! You can toast the Bread if you like, I didn’t toast mine.

 

 

 

 

To go with my Egg Sandwich I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, which I love having anytime. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

To start the day I prepared a Poached Egg that I served on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Cloudy with a high of 28 degrees and snow flurries. Finished cleaning the house after Lunch and cleaned the fridge. For dinner tonight I prepared Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Meijer the other day. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty. You can bake Catfish but for me you just can’t beat frying Catfish.

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, which I always use when making Hash Browns. Fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. Just love Potatoes with Fish. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. For Dessert later a Del Monte Sugar Free Diced Peach Cup.

Today’s Menu: Subway 6″ Sub and Chips

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Skillet Diced Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse 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. Topped it off with a Sunnyside Up Egg and also made that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. In the 20’s this morning and a cold wind blowing! We only had a high of 36 degrees. So not a lot going on outside. Cleaned the fridge out, then the stove and oven, then on to the pantry. Took the brushes out of the vacuum and cleaned them. Well I got everything done so I watched some TV and read a couple of Food Magazines. Tonight I’m having a Subway 6″ Sub on 9 Grain Bun w/ Turkey and Black Forest Ham.

 

 

Didn’t feel like cooking tonight and I hadn’t had Subway in a while so it just sounded good for dinner! I had a 6″ Black Forest Ham and Turkey Sub on a 9 grain Wheat Bun w/ Black Olives, Lettuce. The total calories for the sub is 270 calories and 41 net carbs. I added Hellman’s Light Mayo and French’s Yellow mustard to the Sandwich when I got home. I also had a side of Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

Subway – Turkey Breast & Black Forest Ham
A sandwich so deliciously hearty, you won’t know you’re eating low fat. Enjoy the flavor of tender sliced turkey breast and Black Forest ham with your favorite veggies from juicy tomatoes to sweet red onions served on your favorite freshly baked bread.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Sliced Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tips

 

 

To start this 8th day of November off I prepared a Scrambled Egg and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. About 30 degrees this morning. Had a high of 50 degrees and partly cloudy out. Spent most of the day house cleaning today. Later in the afternoon I went to Bank for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Sliced Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tips.

 

 

I purchased the Tilapia while Jungle Jim’s International Market the other day. I had already rinsed it in cold water and had it in plastic bag the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge and let it thaw overnight. To prepare it I’ll need; the Tilapia, McCormick Grinder Sea salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. To start I heated Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet was ready I cooked the Tilapia in the hot Oil until Golden Brown, about 4 minutes per side. I had not had Tilapia in a while and it tasted great! Moist with excellent seasoning. Love hitting the Seafood Dept. at Jungle Jim’s. They have about anything, they even have tanks of live Tilapia and Trout!

 

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Homestyle Sliced Potatoes , first time having these. Again Jungle Jim’s is the only place around here that I seen carries this product from Simply Potatoes. To prepare them; Heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a skillet until hot. Add potatoes. Cover with lid. Cook 5–6 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Turn and cook an additional 4–5 minutes. According to the package instructions – During cooking, potatoes must reach a temperature of 165degrees F for 2 minutes. Wow what an easy way to have Fried Sliced potatoes! These came out so good and were so easy to prepare! You can use these for several different Potato Recipes including Scalloped Potatoes. I’ll have to buy more of these!

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Asparagus Cuts and Tips. Partially drained some of the can’s liquid. Then added the contents to a small sauce pan and cooked on medium high to a boil and then reduced the heat to simmer. Cooked about 7 minutes. Really enjoyed Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
