Today’s Menu: Fried Oyster Mini Po’ Boy w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit hotter out there today, 88 degrees and humid. I guess our mild August days have ended, at least for now. After Breakfast i took my car up to get it washed and vacuumed on the inside. Laid back day, all caught up on cleaning. I did do a load of laundry and after Lunch I straightened up the Pantry. For Dinner tonight its a Fried Oyster Mini Po’ Boy w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I love Fried Oysters, just can’t have them enough! To prepare them I’ll need; 1 container of Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, 1 tablespoon Flour, 1/4 cup Egg Beaters, 1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste), 2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil. Louisiana Remoulade Sauce, Louisiana Tarter Sauce, Lettuce, and Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Hot Dog Buns. I’m making my Oysters the same way i usually do except I’m making a Mini Po’ Boy Sandwich out of them.

 

 

I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each Oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the Oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add Egg-dipped Oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

 

 

Next, heat Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry Oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Fry Oysters until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and make your Po’Boy!

 

 

 

I took an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Hot Dog Bun and split it open, length wise. On the bottom bun I spread a small amount of the Tarter Sauce on it. Next I layered my Fried Oysters, followed by the Shredded Lettuce, and then on the bottom of the top bun I spread the Remoulade Sauce. Just another way to serve these mouth-watering delicious Fried Oysters! The Oysters cam out delicious as always and the 2 Louisiana Sauces combined perfectly to kick this Po’ Boy up another notch! Excellent Sandwich.

 

 

To go with the Fried Oyster Po’ Boy 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.

Today’s Menu: Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

It was Toast and Gravy along with Turkey Sausage Links for Breakfast. I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, my favorite. Then I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good Breakfast to start my day! After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Outside its mostly sunny and a high of 82 degrees low humidity. After Lunch I got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work. For dinner tonight I prepared a Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

When it’s Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches it’s always Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest BBQ food anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger. So when it’s Pulled Pork I almost always use the Montgomery Inn brand. Anyway you just heat it in a medium sauce pan until it’s warmed and you have BBQ. It’s the perfect combination of the Pork and the mouth watering Montgomery Inn Sauce that makes this so delicious! Plus it’s only 110 calories and 8 carbs per serving. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

For the 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 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: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 

 

For Breakfast on this Thursday morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 54 degrees out but the humidity was up a bit. Started the laundry after Breakfast. Outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned of the deck area and the driveway. After Lunch went over to see Dad for the afternoon. He’s doing good one day and not so good the next day. Hope he starts improving soon! So for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dog 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

 

 

Restless night of sleep last night, just couldn’t get comfortable. For Breakfast I had a Poached Egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Started a load of laundry for Mom and I’m done for the day. Caught up some sleep and relaxed for most of the Afternoon. After Lunch went over to see Dad, who is improving. 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, for the Fries.

 

 

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.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a 2 Egg Cheese Omelet along with 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Patties, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Delicious way to start my day! Outside it’s in the mid 80’s, humid, and a showers around the area. I needed a few things from the store so I went to Meijer. As I was coming out to the car, just as I put the bags in the back seat it started pouring the rain. It came down hard for about 15 minutes, I was drenched by the time I got into the car. Back home just cleaned up around the house. For Dinner tonight I satisfy my Buffalo Burger craving. I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I’m way over due for a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger! I just love these Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

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

Today’s Menu: Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, topped them with some cooked diced Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, and finally a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. Also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love this Breakfast Skillet! After Breakfast I went to see Dad at the rehab center. He seems to be doing good. Hopefully he’ll be home in a couple of weeks. Back home, I got the cart out and finished up some yard work and took a spin around the neighborhood. It’s a little hotter and the humidity was a tad worse. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

I used the healthy and delicious Jennie O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages. I had bought a package at Meijer the other day. I pan fried them, using Pam w/ Olive Oil Cooking Spray and no oil needed. Heated the pan on medium and cooked a total of about 17 minutes, turning the Sausages occasionally. They fry up plump and brown, as always Jennie – O Products always have that fresh taste to them. The Sausages have 160 calories and 0 carbs per Sausage.

 

 

 

 

I served it on a new Aunt Millie’s Hot Dog Bun, the Aunt Millie’s New England Style Potato Hot Dog Bun. It’s a bit higher in calories and carbs than the Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calories Buns I normally buy, but these looked so good I had to try them! The buns are a top loaded bun. Plus they have a Potato flavor to them. After trying them I really like them, jut wish they were a bit lower in calories and carbs. I topped Sausage with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Love these Sweet Italian Sausages, thank you Jennie – O! I made 2 of them having one tonight and the other for Lunch tomorrow.

 

 

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. 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: Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

I wanted something a little different for Breakfast this morning so I went with a Breakfast Burrito for Breakfast this morning. You can prepare them so many different ingredients. For this one I used 2 medium size Eggs (Scrambled), Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Crumbled), sliced Black and Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce, and Old El Paso 6 – Inch Flour Tortillas. Eggs and Bacon are just a natural pairing and the Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce can’t be beat. It just gives everything an unbelievable flavor, nice heat but not over powering.

 

 

 

Another hot and humid day out there! Did some cleaning outside early to avoid the heat and humidity. Not a whole lot to do today, all caught up on everything. Did some work on the computer, ran the scans, deleted some old files and such. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I hadn’t had a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger in a while now! I just love these Bad Boys of Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries leftover so I prepared them to go with my Burger.Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley.

Today’s Menu: Hamburger Sliders w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Happy 4th of July to everyone out there! Please, as always, remember those out there serving our Country so we can enjoy Holidays like this. For Breakfast this morning I had purchased a package of Smithfield Anytime Favorites Sliced Ham. Just heat up for 1 minute in a skillet and it’s ready! I then toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped the Ham with a slice of Sargento Reduced Calorie Swiss Cheese and served it on the Muffin. Made a delicious Breakfast sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Hot and muggy with a passing shower outside today. Not a lot going on today, very laid back. I cleaned up around the house and then spent the afternoon watching a couple of movies I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s Sliders again! I prepared Hamburger Sliders w/ Baked Fries.

 

It’s 2 days of Sliders for me. yesterday it was Crabcake Sliders and tonight Beef Sliders. Well it doesn’t happen often, rarely ever, but I’m having Beef tonight! I was at Kroger yesterday and I came across a bag of Kroger Ground Beef Sliders – Mini Beef Burgers. They looked good and I had just bought a package of Pepperidge Whole Wheat Slider Buns so I had a perfect pairing. I switched from Beef to Bison, or Buffalo, several years ago when i was diagnosed with Diabetes 2. Healthier, leaner, less fat, and tastes better so the switch was easy. But these looked good and Mom and Dad would really like them! They come frozen and there are 16 2 oz. Slider Patties per package.

 

 

To prepare them; You prepare them frozen, no need to thaw. Just place the Patties in a preheated skillet, preheated on medium heat. Heat on the first side until the juices start to flow. Flip it over and cook till done with about 1 minute of frying time left I added a 1/2 slice of Arla Gouda Cheese. First time trying the Arla Gouda Cheese also. Very good Gouda, smooth, nice flavor, and only 80 calories per slice. The Burgers fry up perfect, I seasoned them with some Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I served them on Pepperidge Wheat Slider Buns. I still prefer my Buffalo but these were pretty good!

 

 

And as usual when having any type of Burger you must have fries! I I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries, I used Ore Ida yesterday. 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; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

One of those long and sleepless nights for me last night. I was fighting with a real case of the Phantom Pains throughout the night. Had a Poached Egg on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread. Started a load of laundry for Mom and I’m done for the day. The Phantom Pains continued till almost Noon. Caught up some sleep and relaxed for most of the Afternoon. 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, for the Fries.

 

 

 

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.

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.
