Freeze fresh herbs……….

If you’re still not able to use up all your fresh herbs before they go bad, here’s a hint on what to do. Chop them up and throw them in the freezer. Try freezing them in an ice cube tray. Once frozen, remove the cubes and place them in a freezer-safe bag. This way you can pull out just what you need the next time you cook.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 63 degrees and partly sunny out today. I took Mom over to Jungle Jim’s Market this morning. She went in and grabbed a couple of items and put them in my cart. Then she headed back out to the car. She’s having a lot of trouble walking for a long length of time. So I finished the shopping up, I love Jungle Jim’s! As I have said before it has everything from Quail Eggs to Ground Ostrich. Plus older U.S. Grocery Items you can no longer find anywhere else. Anyway back home, I took Mom’s car up and had it washed and then stopped and filled it with gas. Then cleaned up a little outside. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise (my favorite Mayo) and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo. The Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is nice and creamy with excellent flavor, with a little kick to it!

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I baked them for 19 minutes and done. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Is that chicken done grilling?……………

The perfect internal temperature is 165 degrees for dark meat, 160 degrees for white. If you don’t have an instant-read thermometer, you can always do a little cut into the middle to check that it’s just about opaque in the center.

Healthy Dessert Recipes with Fruit

Find healthy, delicious fruit desserts. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Pineapple Nice Cream
All-fruit, dairy-free and with no added sugar–these are the hallmarks of nice cream, a healthy alternative to ice cream. This pineapple nice cream has tropical flavors, thanks to a hit of mango and lime. It takes just minutes to make this naturally sweet frozen dessert in the food processor or a blender. Enjoy it alone, or top with fresh fruit and toasted coconut……..

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler with Granola Streusel
Tart rhubarb and sweet strawberries turn tender in their own juices beneath a brown sugar and oat crumble topping. This spring-inspired dessert comes together quickly without pie crusts to unroll; the tender fruit cooks quickly to make this a great last-minute dessert option too. Serve warm for the most luscious texture…………..

Apricot-Strawberry Tart
In this healthy one-bowl dessert recipe, strawberries and apricots are a sweet-tart combination for the filling, but you can use 3 cups of any sliced summer fruit or berries that inspire you. Although this is technically a tart, it bakes best in (and is easiest to serve from) a springform pan instead of a classic tart pan. Serve with whipped cream, if desired…………..

Strawberry storage hint……….

Remove the berries from their original container, and store them whole and unwashed in a partially-closed container lined with paper towels to absorb any excess moisture, preferably in a single layer so they don’t get crushed. They should last up to five to seven days.

Sweet Potato-Black Bean Burgers
These vegan sweet potato-black bean burgers spiced with curry powder are easy to make. Blending the mixture with your hands gives you a soft, uniform texture then the outside gets crispy by cooking in a cast-iron pan. To make this recipe gluten-free too, use gluten-free oats and serve the patty in a lettuce wrap, omitting the bun…………….

Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Curry Soup
In this healthy cauliflower soup recipe, roasting the cauliflower first adds depth and prevents the florets from turning to mush. A little tomato sauce and coconut milk give the broth a rich, silky texture. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, if desired……………….

Slow-Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows
The genius hack in this recipe: topping sweet potatoes with marshmallows while they’re still piping hot from the slow cooker yields a baked marshmallow topping that’s typical with baked sweet potato casseroles……………….

Oh those Sweet Taters

Look for small to medium sweet potatoes, which are sweet and creamy. (The larger ones tend to be starchier.) The skin should be firm, smooth, and even-toned. The deeper the color of the potato, in general, the richer it is in the antioxidant beta-carotene. The best way to store raw cut sweet potatoes is in a cool, dark, dry place. You should refrain from refrigerating them as a temperature that is too cold and even too hot can ruin them. In a cool, dry storage space, raw cut sweet potatoes can last up to two months.
