Today’s Menu: Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg Suunyside Up, reheated the remaining piece of pork Chop, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then after Lunch I took Mom’s car to have the oil changed and then took it to washed and the inside vacuumed. Another hot and humid day out. Looks pretty good for an older car. For Dinner tonight its a Thousand Island Ground Chicken Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased a 1 lb. package of Ground Meijer Chicken while there the other day. I had no t had a ground Chicken Burger in a long time and it just sounded good! To make the Burger I’ll need; Pam Cooking Spray, Extra Light Olive Oil, Ground Chicken, Dried Sage (just a pinch), Sea salt, Ground Black Pepper, Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing, Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Buns.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I was able to make 4 Burgers out the package of Ground Chicken. I added just a pinch of Rubbed Dried Sage to the Chicken and formed it into 4 Chicken Patties. I got a 10″ skillet that I lightly coated with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil also. I then preheated the skillet on medium heat. I then fried the patties, 2 at a time. I fried them until the juices ran clear and I had an internal temperature reading of 165 degrees. Flipping the Burgers one time. After flipping it, with about 1 minute of frying time left I added my Cheese on it. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Bun and topped the Burger with Litehouse Thousand Island Dressing. Love the Chicken Burger! Came moist and delicious, nice flavor to it and the Sharp Cheddar and Thousand Island Dressing was perfect with it.

 

To go with my Burger, what else but Baked Fries. I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Bacon and Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and all of the Dads out there! To start our Sunday morning off I prepared a Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast for everyone. 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. Just love this Skillet Breakfast! Outside it’s a rainy and humid Fater’s Day out there! A bit cooler at 83 degrees but heavy rains at times. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry and that was about it for the day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. Not much else going on. So for Dinner tonight a I’m preparing a Bacon and Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries. For Father’s day I went to Outback Steakhouse for Mom and Dad and brought back Dinner for them.

 

I had a few of the Honeysuckle White Lightly Seasoned Turkey Patties left in the freezer so I grabbed one and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. They are 1/4 lb. patties (4 to a package) and 170 calories per burger.

 

 

 

 

For the Bacon I’m using the Kroger Simple Truth Turkey Bacon. It fries or bakes up real easy and has excellent taste.I was going to use more of the Wild Boar Bacon but forgot to lay the package out to thaw from the freezer.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Turkey Burger, I’m using a medium size skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium. When the skillet was ready I added the Turkey Burger. I fried it about 6 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I topped it with a slice of Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with a bout 1 minute of cooking time left. I served the Burgers on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. Topped the Turkey Burger with some Heinz 57 Sauce and the Turkey Bacon. The Burgers fried up great and the toppings all worked well together.

 

 

 

For a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my day off I had a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another rainy day outside again. We have several areas that had flooding from yesterday’s rains. So more on top of that, 85 degrees and muggy. So I stayed in and cleaned the house today. Started by getting a couple of loads of laundry started. Then dusted and vacuumed. Next into the kitchen and laundry room. Cleaned the oven, self-cleaning oven. Then dusted and cleaned around the washer and dryer. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger yesterday and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender. A special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier!

 

 

 

Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. This is a Sandwich! I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch the next few days.

 

 

To go with the Pulled Pork Sandwiches I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out and cleaned up around the deck and driveway areas. It’s another beautiful day out here, 82 degrees and mostly sunny! Headed out to Meijer, they had some items on sale I needed. Dad did good his first day back home. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

Time to satisfy that Buffalo Burger craving! I used the Wild Idea Buffalo Buffalo Burgers. I always have a couple of packages of them in the freezer so I grabbed one of the patties and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. 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. After I flipped it, I topped it with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. Lean and delicious, love these Buffalo Burgers!

 

 

 

Then for a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes.

Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I tried a new Breakfast Sausage, al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patties. It’s a precooked Chicken Sausage Patty, it’s already seasoned also. I heated it up in a small skillet for a total of 6 minutes a side. Heated up quick and seasoned perfect. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I toasted. The Sausages are only 80 calories and 1 carb, I’ll have to keep these in stock! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well the rains have finally let up. We’ve had close to 2 inches of rain here the past 2 days. A cool morning out, 39 degrees this morning. After Breakfast i went up to the local Kroger and bought Mom a Mother’s Day Card and Roses for Mother’s Day. Back home did some laundry and cleaned the oven and cleaned the fridge out. After Lunch went over to see Dad for a while. He seems to be doing better so we’ll wait and see. For Dinner tonight a Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 


It just felt like a Bison Burger type of day! And a Bacon and Cheese Bison Burger sounded even better! I normally use Wild Idea Buffalo Patties for my Burgers but I’m trying a new one this time from SayersBrook Bison Ranch, 3 oz Bison Patties. I’ve tried a lot of the other SayersBrook items and all were great so I thought I would give their Bison Patties a try. So I’m using the SayersBrook Bison Patties, for the Bacon I’m using SayersBrook Wild Boar Uncured Bacon, Kraft Deli Sharp Cheddar, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 

 

I first prepared the Wild Boar Uncured Bacon. The slices were not as long as most Bacon Slices, perfect size to use on Burgers. It fried up as normal Bacon and tasted great! Wild Boar Bacon has a richer taste and is leaner than Pork. As usual when preparing Bacon, you have to use Bacon Math to calculate how many slices you need to prepare. If you need to use 3 slices you should fry at 5 slices, 3 to use and 2 to munch on while you’re preparing Dinner. Bacon Math!

 

 

 

Next I preheated the oven to 425 degrees to bake my fries and on to the Burger. I prepared it as I do the Wild Idea Buffalo Burger.I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. All Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. After I flipped it, I topped it with a slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I then topped it with Wild Boar Bacon and then served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. The Burger was excellent! It fried up great and its a very tasty Bison Burger.

 

 

The oven was preheated and I baked the Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn. We really enjoy the Skinny Pop – Pop Corn!

Today’s Menu: “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning something a little different, Wild Boar Bacon! I had ordered some from SayersBrook Bison Ranch and just received my order yesterday afternoon. Couldn’t wait to try it so I’m having it now. The slices were not as long as most Bacon Slices, but it made no difference. It fried up as normal Bacon and tasted great! Wild Boar Bacon has a richer taste and is leaner than Pork Bacon. Really enjoyed this and will have it again. Along with the Bacon I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and my usual cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

 

After Breakfast did a few chores around the house and finished up a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch I went out to the shed and pulled out the rest of the deck furniture and cleaned it up. Rain moved back in again, a high in the 60’s. For dinner tonight I prepared “Not So Sloppy” Buffalo Joes Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

It’s Sloppy Joe Night tonight for dinner! A delicious and a super easy meal to make. To make the Sloppy Joes I used a 1 lb. package of Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round, 1 jar of Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce, and Kroger Lite Wheat Buns. Using Buffalo, or Bison, instead of Beef will give your Sloppy Joe a deeper and richer flavor. Really looking forward to tonight’s Dinner, been a while since I’ve had these!

 

 

 

 

Using a large skillet to brown the Buffalo in I seasoned it with Morton’s Salt Substitute, Ground Black Pepper, and Roasted Ground Cumin. After the Buffalo was browned and no longer pink I added the jar of Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce stirring and making sure the Sauce and Buffalo was well mixed. Simmer until it’s warm, and served. I love the Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce. It’s a good thick sauce well seasoned with Spices, Onions, Green Peppers among other ingredients (70 calories and 15 carbs per serving). I served them this time on Kroger 100% Whole Wheat Sliders Mini Buns. Sloppy Joes make a perfect Slider! Another delicious dish using Wild Idea Buffalo.

 

For a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn.

 

 

 

 

 
Hormel Not So Sloppy Joe Sauce

Richer and Thicker and Far From Ordinary

Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce is as distinctive as its name. Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce has a hint of barbecue flavor and is richer and thicker than other sloppy joe sauces.

Since its beginning in 1985, there’s been one very graphic way to show the thick and rich texture of Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce: the “drip test.” When you hold up a sloppy joe made with Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce, there are no drips. It’s that rich and thick.

Wild Boar Uncured Bacon

Wild Boar
A European delicacy enjoyed for centuries for its unique flavor

Wild Boar is sometimes referred to as “the wild version of the other white meat.” Replacing traditional ground pork with ground wild boar can greatly increase the flavour of almost any dish. Wild Boar meat tastes slightly sweet and nutty due to its diet of foraged nuts and other foods from the forest.

It is increasingly sought after by chefs and consumers looking for a unique flavor. although you may expect it to resemble pork wild boar is a dark red meat. Unlike its domestic cousin, wild boar is also very lean and low in cholesterol. The meat is darker in color with a distinct, with a flavorful taste but not gamey. Wild boar is an easy alternative to beef and pork for those who want food that is good for them without sacrificing taste and quality

Wild boar is not prone to illness or disease. Our wild boar meat is chemical free without any added hormones. No antibiotics, No steroids, All natural wholesome meat.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 
To start the morning I toasted a Thomas Bagel Thin. These toast up great and make very good Breakfast Sandwich. Then I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites and took one slice of Sargeto Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese to top the Egg Whites. And I have my Breakfast Sandwich! I was at Kroger yesterday and they had the Thomas Bagel thins on sale, buy 1 get one free. These are 110 calories and 21 net carbs. I froze one package so we’ll see how they hold up. We had about 1 1/2 inches of rain overnight, lot of local flooding down in Cincinnati. After Breakfast I took Mom’s car in to have the oil changed at a local Car Repair we go to. Then after Lunch I went over to spend some time with Dad. Back home did a load of laundry for Mom. So for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. I had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar, love these things!

Today’s Menu; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, not much of an appetite this morning. Started the laundry up for Mom after that. About an hour later we headed up to Home Depot. Needed paint, to paint the wooden deck, bought some new plants for outside, potting soil, grass seed, and checked out the back splash for the Kitchen. Mostly sunny and 80 degrees out today! Our new grill arrived so I spent some of the day putting that together. It is one pain in the rear putting that together while in a wheelchair! Finally got it together. Also planted a couple of new shrubs in the back of the house. I’m one tired man tonight. For Dinner tonight its Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 


To prepare the Sandwich I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Kroger Bakery Sour Dough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees.

 

 

 


While the griddle was heating I prepared the Sandwich. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! What a Sandwich, Sour Dough Bread just makes everything that much better!

 


I had already preheated the oven, so as the griddle was heating I baked my fries, I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a Weight watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
