Today’s Menu: Cold Cut Trio Baked Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

Waffles2

 

Made another thing I haven’t had for Breakfast in quite a while, Waffles. I used the leftover batter from the Pancakes from yesterday, got my Waffle Griddle out and made Waffles. Then along with the Waffle I had some Jimmy Dean Applewood Smoked Chicken Sausage. If you’ve never given these a try you need to, delicious! For dinner tonight, a Cold Cut Baked Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

Baked Cold Cut Trio Mini Sub 008

I used Kroger Private Selection Smoked Off the Bone Sliced Ham, Boar’s Head Honey Smoked Turkey Breast, and Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna for my Baked Mini Sub. I had picked the Turkey up while at Jungle Jim’s Market yesterday. Then I used a Meijer Wheat Mini Sub Bun. Layered the Meats on the Bun and topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil and Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard and a thin slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. I brushed some Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the top bun, which makes it brown up better. I baked it in a shallow baking pan at 400 degrees until the Cheese started to melt and the Meats were heated. I love using these Meijer Wheat Mini Sub Buns, their just the right size and they toast up fantastic! I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries, served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

 

 

 

 

Boar's Head HONEY SMOKED TURKEY BREAST
Boar’s Head HONEY SMOKED TURKEY BREAST
An all white turkey breast, lightly smoked and dipped in golden honey for a smoky, sweet flavor that is sure to be a favorite. Wonderful on Sourdough bread with lettuce, tomato, and our Vermont Cheddar Cheese for a lunchtime treat.

Today’s Menu: Baked Cold Cut Trio Mini Sub w/ Creamy Tomato Soup

 

 

 

Cold Cut Baked Mini Sub 002
Our warmest day of the year so far, 80 degrees! It was even a bit humid (blah) and partly sunny. Went to the grocery early this morning and then back home. Then I worked on cleaning the shed out a bit. Mom and Dad has boxes packed with stuff they haven’t seen in 5 years or more, so it’s out with the old. I barely made a dent in all the boxes, this will take a while. For dinner something a little different, I prepared a Baked Cold Cut Trio Mini Sub w/ Creamy Tomato Soup.

 

 

 
I used a Trio of Cold Cuts for my Baked Mini Sub; Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna, Kroger Private Selection Off – the Bone Smokehouse Ham, and Private Selection Roasted Turkey. For toppings Boar’s Head Sliced Muenster Cheese and Kraft Reduced fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil. For the Bun I used Perfection Deli Mini Wheat Sub Buns, I buy these at Meijer. To prepare it I spread the Mayo on the bottom bun and layered my Cold Cuts on top of that. Topped that with Cheese and spread more Mayo on the bottom of the top bun. To help the bun brown a bit I brushed the top with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I had already preheated the oven to 400 degrees, I then laid the Sub on a small baking sheet and baked it for about 12 minutes. Took it out and the Sub was a light golden brown and the Cheese was melted. I love using Muenster Cheese for when I melt Cheese on Sandwiches, it melts perfect for that. The Sub tasted great, all the Cold Cuts worked great together, then the with the Muenster Cheese and Mayo give it a perfect taste!

 

 

 

Cold Cut Baked Mini Sub 008
Then I also heated up some Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup. My favorite Tomato Soup by far. I’ve been using this a couple of years now. Creamy with a fantastic flavor and it’s 110 calories and 19 carbs. I also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos

 

 

 

This morning it was about 54 degrees, but I guess that was our high for the day as it’s been dropping ever since. rain on and off and windy, blowing in our winter storm I guess. We’re supposed to get 2″-4″, we’ll see though. Got my tests results back and my sugar looked real good they said as did everything else except for my thyroid, which it was a little off. I just have to adjust my medicine. As most former Cancer patients, you usually have a Thyroid trouble depending on your type of Cancer and treatment. For dinner tonight; it’s Turkey Tacos Night!

 

 

Turkey Tacos w Jim. Dean Crumbles 004

For the Turkey I used Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles. Kroger had the bags on sale so I thought I would give it a try! It comes pre-cooked so all you have to do is heat it up for about 8 minutes. As it was heating I added Sea Salt, Cilantro Flakes, and a 1/2 packet of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. I really liked this! Great taste and real easy to heat up and use. I’ll buy another bag and keep it in the freezer.

 

 

 

 

I used Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Their a good size Taco Shell with 110 calories and 12 Net carbs per serving (2 Shells). Then for my other Taco ingredients I used 2 tablespoons of Del Monte Summer Crisp Sweet Corn Kernels, sliced Black Olives, Shredded Lettuce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican 4 Cheese. I topped them with Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream and Old El Paso Original Taco Sauce. When building my Tacos I always use the Shredded Lettuce as the first layer. The Lettuce helps soak up any moisture so the bottom of your Taco doesn’t get soggy. I love Tacos, easy to make and always delicious! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Our Thanksgiving Meal

 

 

Thanksgiving Dinner 2013 003

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! We had a quiet day and dinner, just Mom, Dad, and myself. There will be more later in the day and evening coming over. The wind that we’ve had has died down finally but it’s only a high in the low 30’s but it’s sunny out. For dinner tonight; Our Thanksgiving Meal.

 

 

 

 

 

We had Turkey, Ham, Stuffing, and Beans with all the other trimmings in between! I prepared a Jennie – O Oven Ready Turkey Breast. This is the easiest Turkey Breast there is to prepare! Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and remove the frozen Turkey from the outer package. Keep the Turkey in it’s cooking bag and place it in a roasting pan. Roast it for 2 1/2 to 3 hours making sure the Turkey reads at least 170 degrees. You have your Thanksgiving Gobbler! Simple, easy, and delicious.

 

 

 

 

For the Ham we used a Cook’s Bone-In Ham (1/2 Ham). My Mom prepared that last night so it was ready for today’s feast. Then for our side dishes we had; Mashed Potatoes, Brown Gravy, Green Beans (a quart of the Greens Beans we canned earlier in the year), Home Made Stuffing (Mom prepared this), Deviled Eggs, and Baked Rolls. Plus for dessert my Mom baked a couple of pies, a Pumpkin Pie and an Apple Pie. Both were made by using Splenda. I’m not big on Pumpkin Pie but that Apple Pie won’t stand a chance later this evening! For dessert later a slice of Apple Pie with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream! Only one way to describe this, “It was a feast!” Once again Happy Thanksgiving to you all and say a prayer later for our Country and all Military Men and Women serving our country!

We all do it, feast on Turkey and all the trimmings and asleep on the couch before the second football game of the day is on. I had always heard it was the Turkey, well maybe it’s not. Find out, good article on the Turkey Effects from Huffington Post web site. I left the link at the bottom of the page so you can read it all.

 

 

Tryptophan Making You Sleepy Is A Big Fat Lie

 

The Huffington Post | By Carey Polis

 
It feels like there is a simultaneous conversation happening at Thanksgiving tables across the country. You eat a big meal — which includes a generous helping of turkey — and all of a sudden you’re feeling like you really want to lie down and take a nap. “It’s the tryptophan,” says Aunt Doris or Grandma Peggy or that cousin who always makes a big point of announcing that she’s watching her weight this year. Everyone nods in agreement, as if the tryptophan is a perfectly reasonable excuse. Unfortunately, the reality is that you just ate way too much.

It’s high time that we set the record straight. Tryptophan does not make you sleepy. You do not feel like this on Thanksgiving because of tryptophan:…..
