Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 

 

For Breakfast  Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 86 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry and then I went to Meijer to buy some new Bed Sheets, picked up a couple more items while there. Back home I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight it’s an Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I had not had this in quite a while. I Wanted something light today and a Pasta Salad sounded perfect! For my Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bite size pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. 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 for about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! These go great with anything.

 

Then to go with the Turkey Sausage I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always tastes even better after chilling for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

 

To serve, I made a bed of the Pasta in a bowl and topped it with the sliced Turkey Sausage, and chowed down! The Pasta Salad and Turkey Sausage are a perfect combination. And the Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor! I also had a slice of the some leftover Garlic Bread Loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Rain and a high of 40 degrees out today. Very windy though and wind chill factor made it feel in the 30’s. Lazy day today. I was all caught up on all the work. So I cleaned up the computer today, ran scans and deleted old files. Then I kicked back the rest of the day. So for Dinner tonight its a Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I love these Naan Bread Pizzas so much! These are so easy to fix and so delicious! I had a package of Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. For my toppings for the Pizza I’m using Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausage, Black Olives, Green Olives, Oscar Mayer Hickory Smoked Bacon Bits, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Traditional Pizza Sauce. I love this Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread, it tastes so fresh and bakes up perfect!

 

I first Preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam No Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I opened up a roll of the Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausage. I cut off a slice of it and crumbled up. Added it to the heated skillet and fried Sausage Crumbles. When they were browned and heated through, removed them from the skillet into a small bowl until ready to use.

 

With the oven preheated I lined the Naan Bread to the baking sheet and baked it for 2 minutes. When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the Ragu Pizza Sauce. Next slices of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni. Then the Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Crumbles, next the Black and Green Sliced Olives, Lite House Dried Oregano, Oscar Mayer Bacon Bits, and finally the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

 

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 8 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pull the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. With the first bite you’ll know the Naan Bread is the perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust has excellent taste and bakes up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizzas. Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. I keep a couple of packs of the Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread and keep them in the freezer. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Stay Safe and Take Care All!

Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken

 

 

To start this Sunday morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a hot one out there today! We had a heat index of 107 degrees. Light Rain and high winds came through in the late afternoon and cooled it off a bit. Not much going on today, did laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken.

I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always taste even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning.

Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in!

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up a Kroger Rotisserie Whole Chicken. We love Rotisserie Chicken, delicious and easy to prepare. When it was time for Dinner I heated the oven on 325 degrees. Got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Took the Chicken out of the package and into the baking pan. Reheat it for 30 minutes. After the Chicken cooled a bit I pulled all the Chicken from the bones and it was ready to serve!

To serve made a bed of the Pasta and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and some more of the Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing. The Pasta Salad and Rotisserie Chicken are a perfect combination. The Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor for the Pasta and the Rotisserie Chicken was seasoned perfectly!

Fried Oysters w/ Italian Pasta Salad

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Italian Pasta Salad

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 74 degrees and partly sunny out today. After Breakfast I went to Walmart, stopped by a local Lawn and Garden Center, and had the car washed. Mom went back to Church this morning, first time in a couple of months. She was so happy to see all her friends! Not a lot going on, just kicked around the house doing a few things. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Italian Pasta Salad. (Camera stopped working, again. So no plate shot.)

 

As usual I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. 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 the bag, and then shake.

 

Next, heat the Extra Light Olive 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 Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from the frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some McCormick’s Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

Then to go with the Oysters I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always tastes even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in! Oysters and Italian Pasta Salad makes a good combo! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe:
Ingredients:

12 large-medium Oysters, shucked
1 tablespoon Flour
1 Eggs, beaten or 1/4 cup egg Beater’s
1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges, optional
Hot sauce, optional
Seafood Cocktail Sauce, optional

Preparation:

Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.

1 – Dip drained oysters in flour, then beaten eggs, shake off excess, and in panko crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: 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.

2 – Heat canola oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.

3 – 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 oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately.

Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce.

Makes 2 servings.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 


Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Not much of an appetite when the weather is this hot and humid. Went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s; Sausage, Egg and Cheese McMuffin and a Coffee. Mom went on to Church afterward. Humid and 90 degrees out today. Got the cart out of the shed and cleaned up around the yard. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway. That was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight Leftover Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. Just couldn’t let these leftovers go to waste, they are so good! Something light to eat through this heat we have. I’ve left the original post from last night for descriptions and recipe. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

For my Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bite size pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. 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.

For Breakfast on this sunny Saturday Morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Humid and a high of 88 degrees. Same old weather around here! Rain moving in this evening. Went to Meijer after Breakfast for a few items. Back home did a couple of loads of laundry and cleaned the house today. For Dinner tonight its an Italian Pasta Salad w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage.

 

 

 

 


For my Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bite size pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. 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! These go great with anything.

 

 

 


Then to go with the Turkey Sausage I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always taste even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

 

 

 

 


To serve made a bed of the Pasta in a bowl and topped it with the sliced Turkey Sausage, and chowed down! The Pasta Salad and Turkey Sausage are a perfect combination. And the Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor! I also had a slice of the some left over Garlic Bread Loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
