Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church and I went to the Cemetary to put flowers on Dad’s Grave for Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there! I decided to take a ride over to our old house in Ross, Ohio. When we left Ross back in the early 80’s it was just starting to grow. And now it’s still growing! A ton of changes compared to how it was back then. Still a beautiful small town though! Back home did a couple of loads of laundry and did a little cleaning outside. But it is hot and humid out. 99 degrees and a heat index well over 100 degrees today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Salmon Pesto Pasta and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

A section of the Jungle Jim’s Deli

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I came across on a WordPress Blog (The Cooking Diaries) and it sounded and looked delicious. Plus it looked light and fresh, which is how I like hot weather dishes! I needed a few items to make the dish so I went to Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday. They are the only store in area anymore that carries the Ronzoni Smart or Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta Products. I love shopping at Jungle Jim’s! They carry Anything and Everything, I’m serious! You could spend an entire day in there. The Deli, Produce, and Seafood Departments are my favorites.

 

 

 

So to make the Dish I’ll need; 1 can Pink Salmon (Fresh or Canned), Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, Ronzoni Garden Delight Trio Italiano Pasta, Sliced Black Olives, a few small Anchovy Slices in Olive Oil, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and 1 tube Just Add Basil Pesto. I added a few Ingredients and dropped an Ingredient from the original recipe, the original recipe and the web link are at the end of the post.

 

 

To prepare it; I first made my Pasta. Boil the Pasta according to the box; drain the Pasta and let it cool. Once cooled add the Pasta to a large bowl and add all the ingredients and fold in everything including the can of Pink Salmon. You can warm the Salmon if you prefer before adding it. Put the Pasta Salad in a large plastic bowl with a lid and set it in the fridge until your ready to use it.

 

 

 

 

The Pasta, Salmon, and Pest went great together! Everything tasted light and fresh. Excellent Dish. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Ronzoni Garden Delight Trio Italiano Pasta

Trio Italiano from Ronzoni Garden Delight
Trio Italiano is a combination of three shapes in one box: Rotini, Penne & Shells. With three shapes in three colors RONZONI GARDEN DELIGHT Trio Italiano is perfect for showcasing the vegetables in any meal, but is especially appealing in cold salads.

Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Cooler out and cloudy today, mid 50’s. Finished up the yard work and we have the yard looking good! A lot of hard work but well worth it. Later in the day went up to see Dad for a while. For Dinner tonight it’s Steak and Potato! I prepared an 8oz. Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast.

 

This is one of several Buffalo Steaks I ordered from Wild Idea Buffalo a while back. And this one is one my favorites, the Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 OZ. TERES MAJOR FILET. The Steak is so flavorful and perhaps the most tender cuts of Buffalo. Of course all the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are this way! I had the Steak in the freezer so I sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

I pan fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned it with a bit of Crushed Dry Thyme along with McCormick Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I fried it about 4 minutes on one side and about 3 1/2 minutes on the other side, it gets done very quickly because it’s so lean. The Fillet came out medium rare with a beautiful char on it! These Wild Idea Buffalo Teres Major Steaks are tender and delicious, love them! I also prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms to go with my Steak along with a sprinkle of Blue Cheese. I seasoned them with a Basil Pesto. I don’t think there’s a better partner for Steak than Mushrooms, except maybe a Baked Potato!

 


To go with the Steak I prepared a Baked Potato. I took a medium-sized Russet Potato and took a small knife and made small punctures all around the Potato. Put the Potato in a Microwavable Bowl and cooked for 7 minutes and 20 seconds on high heat. Served the Potato Seasoned with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Love a good Potato! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 OZ. TERES MAJOR FILET

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.
