What about Chickpeas…………..

As a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber, chickpeas may offer a variety of health benefits, such as improving digestion, aiding weight management and reducing the risk of several diseases. Additionally, chickpeas are high in protein and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets.

Today’s Menu: Penn Station Subs

 

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the morning. Only 35 degrees out there this morning. We had a high of 47 degrees and sunny for the afternoon. Went to Meijer after my Tea about 7:00 this morning. I wanted to get there early, get what I needed and get out before it got crowded. With this Virus running wild it’s best to go early before a lot of people get there. I have 3 friends, 1 cousin, and Aunt and an Uncle all with the Virus. So I just stay in with my Mom. She’s 92 so I really can’t get out much and take a chance of passing something along to her. But she is in excellent health so that’s a plus for her. Anyway did some work around the house and watched some College Football. Kitchen Closed Again, Penn Station tonight!

 

 

I ordered a couple of Subs for us. Mom had the Reuben Footlong with Fresh Cut Fries and I had the Dagwood on Multi Grain Bun with Turkey, Salami, Ham, and American Cheese. First time in a very long time we had Penn Station. We’ll have to go back more often, they were Delicious! Mom’s Fresh Cut Fries were good too! Great Job Penn Station!

Making a Quesadilla………………..

Cheddar, Monterey Jack, goat cheese, or Oaxaca cheese are all good options—choose one, or combine two for a creamy, melty mashup. Grate your cheese if it needs to be grated, crumble if not. In a pinch, you can certainly use pre-sliced cheese. You could stop here and make a cheese-only quesadilla. Other Ingredients often include a variety of vegetables like onions, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and some type of protein such as diced chicken or steak.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. It started off Cool and cloudy but the sun came out later and a high of 57 degrees.

Put out a couple of things outside and then gave a neighbor a hand and put up some lights on his shrubs. It’s Thanksgiving Leftovers for Dinner tonight. I’ve left part of the post from yesterday for item descriptions. Enjoy and take care everyone!

Leftover Turkey……………

Cooked turkey is safe in the fridge for up to three to four days, so you can get creative with some recipes over the next few days. Remember, if you’re heating up the leftover turkey, ensure it is piping hot throughout. Do not reheat meat more than once.

The Health Benefits of Apples


Core Benefits

The old cliché exists for a reason: An apple a day benefits your whole body in multiple ways. One of the most widely grown and eaten fruits in the world, they come in more than 7,500 varieties. They are healthiest when you eat them fresh and whole (as opposed to pre-sliced, juiced, or as applesauce). A medium one has about 80 calories, 1 gram of protein, 19 grams of natural sugar, and zero fat, sodium, or cholesterol……………….
