Today’s Menu: Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 
Rolled out to grab the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out, about 26 degrees with a breeze. The day turned out sunny and in the 40’s. Started the morning off with Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, Eckrich Turkey Breakfast SausageSkillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w Hardwood Smoked 003 Links, 1 slice Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Bad day with Dad today, did Mom’s laundry for her she had her hands full today. Dad’s health is getting worse every day. For lunch I made everybody Pot Roast Sandwiches for lunch, used the delicious leftovers from last night’s dinner. That’s one fine recipe to keep! Did some light cleaning around the house and cleaned both our cutting boards. Used a combo of Course Sea Salt and a Lemon, works great as a cleaner on cutting boards. For dinner tonight I prepared Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked French Bread.

 

Wanted a good Comfort Food Dinner tonight and what better combination than a Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage Dinner. I love Mac and Cheese but don’t have it a lot due to the carbs and calories, I have Diabetes 2. But every now and then I give in to the craving and fix a bowl. I do always try to use Whole Grain or Whole Wheat Pastas.

 

Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w Hardwood Smoked 001

For the Pasta I used Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. I don’t use a lot of mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. Just follow the easy instructions on the box and you are set. It’s just a flat out Pasta and Cheese Comfort Food Heaven! Excellent tasting Rotini Pasta and with the Cheese, perfect. Put the lid on Sauce Pan and removed it from the heat.

 

 

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 003
Then for the Turkey Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I took one of the Sausages and cut it in to bite size pieces. I took a medium size skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. Added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated up I added the Turkey Sausage pieces. I cooked them about 12 minutes, stirring them frequently until browned and heated through. When the Sausage was ready I then added it to my pan of Pasta, gently stirring till mixed.

 

 

Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w Hardwood Smoked 006
Served it in a bowl and added a few shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce. The pasta and sausage are a perfect pairing, and the Hot Sauce just kicks it up a bit! Comfort Food Deluxe tonight, I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Breaded Chicken Wings w/ Mac and Cheese

 

Breaded Chicken Wings w Mac and Cheese 010

My dad is back in the hospital. He’s having some internal bleeding and they are running a series of exams to see if they can trace it down. Hoping for the best but at 93 years old it could be anything. I was up at the hospital a couple of times today. Back at home cleaned the house for Mom and did a couple of loads of laundry for her. Another very hot and humid day out again. Even worse than yesterday, about 93 today. For dinner tonight I prepared Breaded Chicken Wings w/ Mac and Cheese (2 Comfort Foods).

 

 

Breaded Chicken Wings w Mac and Cheese 002

I had not made Chicken Wings in a long time. While at Kroger yesterday I browsing the Meat Department and I had grabbed a package of Simple Truth Thin Cut Chicken Breasts when I seen the Chicken Wings, so I got a package of Simple Truth Chicken Wings also. I really like the Simple Truth Brand Pork and Chicken Products. Then last night I scanned the internet for a Baked Chicken Wing recipe and came across one off one of my favorite sites, Taste of Home, Breaded Chicken Wings.

 

 
To make these I’ll need the following; 2/3 cup dry Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 1 teaspoon Onion Powder, 1 teaspoon dried Basil, 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 1 Egg, 1 tablespoon Water, Blue Cheese or your Dipping Sauce, and 10 whole Chicken Wings (I used 6 Whole Wings).

To prepare them In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the Bread Crumbs, Onion Powder, Basil, Garlic Salt and Breaded Chicken Wings w Mac and Cheese 001Paprika. In a small bowl, whisk the Egg and Water. Cut Chicken Wings into three sections; discard Wing tips. My Mom likes her Wings whole so I didn’t cut them up. Dip Wings in Egg, then place in bag and shake to coat. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear, turning once. Yield: 6-8 servings. I baked them a total of 37 minutes. And we got us a winning Wing Recipe! The Wings came out with a nice crust, moist, and great flavor. Have to add this one to the “Keeper Recipes” collection. I had a side of Litehouse Lite Bleu Cheese Dressing for dipping my Wings.

 
Then for a side dish I had some of the goes good with anything side dish, Mac and Cheese. I used the easy prepared Breaded Chicken Wings w Mac and Cheese 005one, Velveeta Shells and Cheese – 2% Milk Cheese. It’s a single serving of Shells and Cheese and it comes in a microwavable container. Just add water to the container, stir, and microwave for 3 1/2 minutes. Remove it from the microwave add the Velveeta Cheese packet and stir, and let stand for 3 minutes to thicken. Makes an easily prepared good Mac and Cheese! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Chili Cheese Mac
Happy Christmas Eve all! Hope all of you are having a good one today! Cloudy and rain on and off with a high in the 50’s. Finished wrapping some gifts earlier today. Then helped clean the house, with my new cordless Hoover Vac, which I love using. Had some friends and family stop by throughout the day, good to see everyone. For dinner tonight it’s Buffalo Chili Cheese Mac.

 

 

 

Buffalo Chili Mac 007
A while back I had made some Buffalo Chili Mac and Cheese and froze the leftovers. So I set the container in the fridge overnight to thaw. A winning dinner combo of Wild Idea Buffalo and Velveeta Cheesy Skillets – Chili Cheese Mac. I used a 1 lb. package of Wild idea Buffalo Ground Round, 99% Lean. I love using Buffalo when ever I can, Buffalo over Beef. Below is the original post on how I prepared it. Merry Christmas everyone!

 

 

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 010
The Cheesy Skillet Dinners kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Buffalo, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. Using the Extra Lean Ground Buffalo instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 40–50 calories! When I last made this last week I used Extra Lean Ground Turkey. As I browned the Buffalo I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 9 minutes. I then added 1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans, 2 cups of water, the seasoning and the pasta. Simmered for 10 – 12 minutes and added the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Buffalo or Ground Turkey as stated above. Love these one pan, quick, easy, and delicious dinners! I also had a couple of slices of Baked Sour Dough Mini Boule Bread. For dessert later, all Fruit, a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup and some Honey Crisp Apple Slices.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fillet w/ Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese

 

 

Panko Crusted orange Roughy and mac 003
It’s been a cool, cloudy, and rainy day out today. Did some laundry early this morning and then had a doctor’s appointment late afternoon. The paper work for my new Hovaround was filled out incorrectly, so now I have to go again so they can verify I’m still an amputee! I’ll be quiet, I don’t want to get started on this. For dinner tonight, Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fillet w/ Kraft Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese.

 

 
I used the other half of the Orange Roughy from last nights dinner for my dinner tonight. To prepare the Fillet, I rinsed the fillet and pat dry and then seasoned it with Sea Salt and Pepper. Combine flour and Hungarian Sweet Paprika mix well, then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dip floured fillets into Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Then roll the fillets in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko. Meanwhile, heated a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in skillet and place the fillet in the oil and fry 4 minutes each side. It comes out a beautiful golden brown on the outside and a moist flavorful fillet on the inside! Fantastic recipe for Fish.

 

 

 
Then to go with my fillet I made some Kraft/Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. Love Mac and Cheese but just don’t eat too often anymore due to a higher calorie and carb count than most sides I eat anymore. But every now and then is ok. So I used a box of the Kraft/Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese, first time I’ve used this one in quite a while. To prepare it; Boil 6 cups water. Stir in shell pasta. Cook 8-10 min., Stirring occasionally. Note: don’t overcook pasta. Drain pasta, don’t rinse. Return it to pan. Add cheese sauce; stir. This makes some of the best Pasta and Cheese you’ll have. The sauce is thick and cheesy, just add Sea Salt and Pepper to taste. Fish with Mac and Cheese is just a natural combo! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Baked Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

Panko Baked Shrimp Mac and Cheese 007

 

Started with a Breakfast of Turkey Goetta and Hash Brown Skillet! I love using Goetta in any Breakfast Dish. It was a little bit hotter and more humid out today. Still working on cleaning out the shed and worked on the computer today. Had to purchase a new mouse for the computer, the old one kept conking out on me. For dinner tonight I prepared Panko Crusted Baked Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 
I found the Shrimp recipe on the back of a box of Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. I’m a Shrimp lover so why not make as healthy as you can. Baking over frying, to save on those calories and carbs. I needed the following to prepare the Shrimp; 16 oz jumbo shrimp (peeled and deveined), sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup egg substitute (Egg Beaters), 1 packet of Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs, 1 tbsp Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Pam Cooking Spray. The original recipe didn’t call for the Parm Cheese, I added that.

 

 
To prepare start by preheating the oven to 400°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Put the egg beaters in one bowl, and the breadcrumbs, panko and parmesan cheese in another bowl. Wash and dry the shrimp. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, then put a few at a time in the bowl with the egg beaters to coat. Put a few pieces of shrimp at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on a baking sheet. Spray the top of the shrimp with baking spray then bake in the middle rack for about 6-7 minutes. Turn shrimp over then cook another 3 minutes or until cooked though. Remove from oven and serve right away. These Shrimp are the bomb! You have that delicious taste of the Shrimp, the tangy sharpness of the Parm Cheese and the crunch of the Panko. Another one of those keeper recipes! For a side I prepared a Microwavable Bowl of Kraft Cheese and Shells, made with 2% Milk. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Chocolate Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Ham and Cheese Panini w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese

 

 

Ham Panini mac and cheese 007
Breezy but at least it’s sunny out today, a high in the low 50’s. Went to bank and on to Walmart and Kroger. I picked up a few items at walmart for myself and then Mom had a small list of items she wanted from Kroger that I picked up for her. Then a lot of computer updates and virus scans. In case you haven’t heard there was a big security breach that could affect a lot of on-line users. Everyone should check their on-line accounts. For dinner tonight I prepared a Ham and Cheese Panini w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Ham Panini mac and cheese 004
For my Panini I used Kroger Brand Private Selection Off- the Bone Smoked Ham. One of my favorite packaged sliced Hams. It has a really great taste to it. I also used Sargento Ultra Thin Pepper-Jack Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo, and a Flatout Foldit 100% Whole Wheat with Flax Flatbread. Used my Panini Sandwich Press. I love using this, I make a lot of Panini for Lunch. Made the Sandwich and put it in the Press for about 4 minutes and it was ready! The Ham, Pepper-Jack, and Mayo are a great combination for a Panini.

 

 

 
I had been wanting some Mac and Cheese for a while now so tonight my side with the Panini was Mac and Cheese. I used Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. I don’t use a lot of mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. I left all the product info on the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese at the end of the post. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

I was up around 6:00 this morning and went out to get the paper and what a beautiful morning! I sat outside for a while, enjoying the peace and quiet of the early morning and read part of the morning paper. I don’t know if it’s a sign of an early Fall approaching or not but there sure are signs of it. As I sat outside I watched 3 different flocks of Geese in their V – Formation flying South, and I’ve been seeing a lot them here the past few days. For dinner I prepared the Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinner Chili Cheese Mac, using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey and added 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. This is has become one of my favorite comfort foods. 1 pan so easy clean up, has, cheese, pasta, and for a meat it has ground turkey, and you can add a can of kidney beans to make it that much heartier!

 

 

The Chessy Skillet Dinners kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans, 2 cups of water, the seasoning and the pasta. Simmered for 10 – 12 minutes and added the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above.Another one pan quick, easy, and delicious dinner! I also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Velveeta/Kraft Dinners Chili Cheese Mac Velveeta Cheesy Skillets w/ Whole Grain Bread

 

With Dad in rehab and Mom staying there the biggest part of the day I’ve been taking over all the daily house work, still looking for an Velveeta Turkey Chiloi Mac 001easier way to vacuum while in a wheelchair! I’ve scanned the net but nothing out there. As hey say you gotta do what you have to do! Anyway for dinner I prepared Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinner Chili Cheese Mac, using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey and added 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. This is has become one of my favorite comfort foods. 1 pan so easy clean up, has, cheese, pasta, and for a meat it has ground turkey, and you can add a can of kidney beans to make it that much heartier!

 

 

As in all the Chessy Skillet Dinners the kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories!

It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above. The Ultimate Cheeseburger Dinner is very good but i think this is my new favorite. I really like the Chili Seasoning! Another one pan quick, easy, and delicious Velveeta/Kraft Dinner! I also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
