Today’s Menu: Buffalo Stir – Fry


To start my day off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 56 degrees and windy, but the sun was out most of the day. I had to get out and rake some leaves, which isn’t going to do a lot of good. The leaves are falling all over the street and piling up quickly . I raked what I could in our yard and I got an elderly neighbor’s yard also. At least I got rid of the first wave of leaves, raked to large yard bags full. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Stir – Fry.


To make my Stir – Fry I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo – Stir – Fry Slices, Ka Me Udon Stir-Fry Noodles, La Choy Bean Sprouts, Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Del Monte Sliced Carrots, Reese Sliced Water Chestnuts, Polar Shiitake Sliced Mushrooms, Kikkoman Stir – Fry Sauce, and La Choy Asian Style Crunchy Noodles. I can’t wait to have this!


To start I prepared the Wild Idea Buffalo – Stir – Fry Strips. These are so easy to prepare, and so delicious! These just cook for a couple of minutes, they are so lean. So I seasoned them with some Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt. Then grabbed a small Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and a tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. The lightly fried the strips. Flipping them once. Removed them from the heat and set aside until I added them to the Stir – Fry.


I started by opening the cans of Cut Green Beans, Sliced Carrots, Bean Sprouts, Sliced Water Chestnuts and Mushrooms. Next I got a large Skillet, sprayed it with Pam Spray and added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Cooking Olive Oil. Heated the Skillet on Medium High heat. When the Skillet was heated I added some of the Stir – Fry Sauce, I just eyed this because I wasn’t sure on how much to add. I then added the Udon Stir – Fry Noodles, Cut Green Beans, Sliced Carrots, Bean Sprouts, and Sliced Water Chestnuts. Stirred them a few times and then added the Buffalo Stir – Fry Strips. Continued cooking until everything was heated. The aroma was incredible!


Removed the Skillet from the heat. I then got a large serving bowl and added the Stir -Fry. I topped everything with the La Choy Asian Style Crunchy Noodles and served.




It came out so good! Everything worked together so good. The Kikkoman Stir Fry Sauce tied everything together, excellent Sauce! I have to start having Stir – Fry more often! There’s so many different ways and ingredients you can prepare it with. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care All!









Wild Idea Buffalo – STIR-FRY STRIPS
Stir things up with our pre-seasoned Buffalo Stir-Fry Strips! Super convenient and cooks up in a jiffy! And, the best part – they are super delicious too! Available in an 8 oz. package.








Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt
Omnivore Salt is a fantastic blend of natural sea salt, harvested from the salt beds off the coast of Northern California, and organic spices. Omnivore Salt is a must have for cooking or to finish seasoning meats! Jill won’t cook without it!







Kikkoman Stir- Fry Sauce
Stir-Fry Sauce
It’s easy to make authentic Chinese-style stir-fries with Kikkoman Stir-Fry Sauce. Pre-seasoned and pre-thickened, you can use it right from the bottle for meat, poultry, seafood or vegetable stir-fries. Kikkoman Stir-Fry Sauce is a blend of Kikkoman Soy Sauce, garlic, oyster sauce and Asian seasonings. It is a versatile recipe ingredient that’s ideal for seasoning Chinese fried rice and chow mein, as well as American favorites such as meatloaf and stew.

Today’s Menu: Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread


Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. High of 76 degrees, mostly sunny and windy out today. A beautiful day to start this 4th of July Weekend! I went to Kroger for Mom after my Tea. Then I stopped by the bank for her and picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for her. Back home I did a little yard work and then just enjoyed this beautiful day! Rode the cart around the neighborhood. Later gave a neighbor a hand painting his deck. I’m starting a new tradition, Meatless Friday. At least for this Friday! I prepared Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread.


When we went to Jungle Jim’s last week we loaded up on Vegetables and Fruits. So Mom had prepared some of the 1/2 Runner Green Beans yesterday. So I’m heating up the leftovers for my Dinner tonight.



For the Corn, we purchased a dozen Ears of Yellow and White Sweetcorn. For that I boiled an Ear of it until done. Then when ready to eat I sliced the Kernels of Corn off and served it like that.








For the Potatoes, they were Russet Potatoes that we purchased at Jungle Jim’s also. Mom had already prepared those by peeling them, slicing, and boiling. I just reheat them and serve. Seasoned with Salt, Pepper, and Butter.



Finally for the Cornbread, Mom had prepared that yesterday. So I just heated that up and cut a slice of it, added Butter and ready to eat. So I got off pretty easy, I just heated everything up and served! I like going Meatless on a Friday, at least this Friday1 For Dessert later a 90 Calorie Cup of Breyer’s Chocolate Ice Cream. Stay Safe Everyone!









Fresh green beans – For the best source of nutrients and lowest sodium, choose fresh or frozen greens beans for cooking. Green beans also contain folate, thiamin, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, and potassium.






Sweet corn – Sweet corn is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Wikipedia

Tonight’s Menu: Chicken Stir -Fry w/ Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms




For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Eggo Waffles (Low Fat Nutrigrain) and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I had ordered a Rotisserie Chicken from Kroger yesterday and after Lunch I went to pick up. Using as part of my Dinner tonight. Had a thunderstorm come through early this morning and then partly cloudy and 92 degrees out, and VERY humid. Don’t like this humidity at all. I seen the Wild Turkey again this morning in the back yard, second time I’ve seen them recently. We have the Turrkey, a couple of Deer, and assorted other critters running around. We also have somehow been adopted by a large yellow cat that now stays around the house outside. He sleeps a lot and that’s about it. For Dinner tonight its Chicken Stir -Fry w/ Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms.



To make the Stir – Fry I’ll need; 1 Whole Rotisserie Chicken (Kroger Deli), 1 package Hakubaku Organic Japanese Wheat Noodles, 1 can Whole Baby Carrots (drained), 1 small can Del Monte Cut Green Beans (drained), Sliced Water Chestnuts (drained), 1 can of Bean Sprouts (drained), 1 can Stir-Fry Mushrooms (drained), Chow Mein Noodles, Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and Extra Light Olive Oil.





I went to Kroger earlier today and picked up a Whole Rotisserie Chicken. Pulled all the meat and this was my Chicken for the Stir-Fry. Next I grabbed a large nonstick skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the pan on medium heat. When heated I added my Pulled Chicken, Carrots, Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms. Stirred until mixed then added the Kikkoman Soy Sauce, you add this according to your taste. Stirred and heated everything until heated through. Removed it from the heat and covered it.



Next I boiled my Udon Noodles. I used a large pot and filled it 1/2 way with water. Heated the water to boiling and added my Noodles. Stirring, and cooked for 4 minutes. Drained them and added them to the Stir – Fry Skillet. Stirred until mixed and served! This hit the spot for Dinner! Topped a bowl of the Sir – Fry with some Chow Mein Noodles. Had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Trop A Rocka Snapple.






Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce
Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce is brewed exactly the same way as all-purpose Kikkoman Soy Sauce. However, after the fermentation process is completed, approximately 40% of the salt is removed. Although there is less sodium in Less Sodium Soy Sauce, all the flavor and quality characteristics remain because it is aged before extracting the salt. However, to maintain this full flavor, we recommend using it during the latter stage of cooking in braising sauces, soups and stews, vegetables or stir-frys.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper, Baked Clam Strips, and Harvest Vegetables



For Breakfast on this second day of 2017 I’m having a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, topped withseasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-baked-clam-strips-and-harvest-vege-011 Smucker’s Sugar-free Blackberry Jam, and as every morning, a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and the morning workout I headed off to Meijer. They had several sale items that we use so I went to cash in on them and I also needed to pick up a couple of packages of Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I’m making some 3 Bean Turkey Chili sometime this week. Not a bad at all out here today, cloudy but 54 degrees! Back home I did some light cleaning around the house. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper, Baked Clam Strips, and Harvest Vegetables.


I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 004Florida! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish, Love Seafood!



Clam Strips and Baked Fries 003
I used a box of SeaPak Clam Strips. Preheat the oven on 400 degrees. I then lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with a shot of Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the Clam Strips in a single layer on the sheet and baked them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 7 minutes. These come out so delicious. Love these, very meaty strips, well seasoned, and easy to prepare. Had a side of McCormick’s Tarter Sauce, for dipping.




Then for a side I prepared a package of Pict’sweet Harvest Vegetables with Roasted Red Potatoes and Herb and Garlic Seasoning. Another item that’s easy to prepare. Just microwave them in their steamable bag they come in on high for 5 minutes an d you have some steaming hot delicious vegetables. Pict’sweet has several different vegetable products but this is my favorite. It contains sugar snap peas, carrots and robust roasted red potatoes in a garlic seasoning.



Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Here’s a Mushroom Veggie Burger to go with those Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries!


Mushroom Veggie Burger

2 tablespoons light olive oil
3 (8 ounce) packages sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
2 tablespoons light olive oil
1 – Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms, onion, and garlic to the hot oil and season with salt, black pepper,oregano, thyme, and nutmeg. Cook and stir mushroom mixture until mushrooms have given up their juice and the juice has almost evaporated, about 10 minutes. Transfer cooked mushrooms to a cutting board and chop into small chunks with a knife.
2 – Transfer mushrooms to a large bowl. Mix in rolled oats and bread crumbs; taste for salt and black pepper and add more to taste. Stir Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese into the mixture, followed by eggs. Let mixture stand for the crumbs to soak up excess liquid, about 15 minutes. (At this point you can refrigerate the mixture to cook later if desired.) Moisten hands with a little vegetable oil or water, pick up about 1/4 cup of mixture, and form into burgers.
3 – Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and pan-fry burgers until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.

Today’s Menu: Stir-Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles



stir-fry-shrimp-with-udon-noodles-009 (1)

Started my day with a light Breakfast of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After that I went to Kroger for Mom, just needed a fe items. Back home helped Mom with some laundry and got the leaf blower out to blow out a lot of leaves and small limbs. They are tearing down the woods behind us and it’s giving us a mess to clean up! Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared a Stir – Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles.




Stir-Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles 001

I had been wanting some Stir-Fry for a while now and today just felt like the day to have it! To make this dish I’ll need; 1 – 7oz. pouch Udon Noodles (KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles), 1 lb. bag of Large Shrimp, Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snap Peas, LaChoy Sliced Water Chestnuts, 1 tsp minced Garlic, 1 tbsp butter (Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter), 1 tsp sugar (Splenda Sugar), and Light Soy Sauce (Kikkoman Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce).




To prepare it, I started by preparing the Baby Carrots. I boiled them in a small sauce pan, boiling them until they were not quite fork tender. I parboiled them because Carrots take a bit to cook and by boiling them first they will get done in the wok with the other ingredients. As the Carrots were boiling I also prepared the Shrimp. In a bowl mix the shrimp with 1 tsp Splenda Sugar and a dash of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley . Marinate for 15 minutes. Next cooked them in a bit of butter just until pink. Remove Shrimp from the skillet and set aside along with Baby Carrots.





In a separate skillet I prepared the Udon Noodles. Using a medium size skillet, I added 1/2 Tbsp. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated on medium high. I added the Noodles and the Soy Sauce, stirred and cooked for 2 minutes. Removed from the heat and set aside.



Using the same skillet as the Shrimp was cooked I added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (cooking on medium high) along with the Butter, Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snap Peas, Water Chestnuts and 1 tsp minced Garlic. Stir-Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles 005Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and the Peppercorn Medley. Cooked it 2 minutes and then added 2 tablespoons of water and the cooked Carrots, Shrimp, and Noodles. Continued to cook everything for an additional 1 1/2 minutes, stirring it often. Remove from heat and serve! Love this dish, everything spot on! The Noodles, Shrimp, Vegetables, along with the seasoning and Soy Sauce combine to make one delicious dish. Really like the KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles, they taste so fresh! For dessert/snack later some Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops and Newman’s Own Black Bean and Corn Salsa.







Udon noodles are thick, white Japanese noodles. They can be eaten cold or hot. Udon noodles are often served in a mild fish broth, flavored with soy sauce and mirin (sweetened sake) and topped with thinly sliced scallions.
KA-ME Stir-Fry noodles are easy to prepare: Heat 1 tbsp KA-ME Sesame Oil in a wok; add thinly sliced vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add KA-ME Udon noodles, 1 tbsp KA-ME Soy Sauce, 1 tbp sugar and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
