Cutting down on Salt…..

Instead of salt add a splash of olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice close to the end of cooking time or to cooked vegetables – it can enhance flavors in the same way as salt.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg, 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a cold morning! It was 8 degrees with a wind chill at 1 degree! We had a high of 29 degrees and partly sunny out. I’m feeling a lot better today, my stomach is still a little upset but bad. Did some computer work today. I deleted a lot files and updated a few things and ran scans. Not much else to do today. For Dinner tonight we had a 5oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast.

 

I prepared one of our favorite Steaks, a Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Toast. I’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then I moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 5 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

 

 

I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Raspberry Snapple to drink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak

Famous for their flavor, these juicy steaks are perfect for the grill. The steaks are cut from the middle and upper part of the primal sirloin and their smaller size makes a great meal for one. 5 oz.

Don’t waste your time flipping…..

You don’t always have to flip your food. When roasting items such as French fries and veggies, preheat your cookie sheet in the oven. This eliminates the need to flip halfway through.

Scoop it out…..

Remove seeds from vegetables like squash and pumpkin with an ice cream scoop. Because the edge of the scoop is sharp, it cuts through the fibrous, gooey stuff inside the squash better than your hand or a regular spoon.

Chocolate-Fudge Pudding Cake
When you have a craving for a comforting dessert, try this pudding cake, which forms its own rich-tasting sauce as it bakes. The coffee flavor is subtle, but it adds complex depth to the cake’s flavor……

The Best Vanilla Custard
Calling this “the best” custard recipe may seem like a bold statement, but it’s true. In this healthy dessert recipe, the rich eggy custard is silky-smooth and infused with loads of vanilla, making it worthy of its name……

Sweet Potato Pudding Cake
This cake was inspired by the one of the most popular Jamaican desserts, sweet potato pudding. Traditionally, raw shredded sweet potatoes are used, but we found that sweet potatoes sold in the U.S. don’t provide the same texture as those in Jamaica. Instead, we mix mashed sweet potato with eggs and flour to get a slightly different, but equally delicious, cheesecake-like result……
