Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 68 degrees and partly sunny. After my Tea I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home I got the cart and yard tools out and worked on the back yard. It’s a mess between the hard Winter and Moles! Later I ordered new Wood Chips from the local Boy Scouts. I order every year from them. They’ll deliver it in late April. For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

Didn’t feel like making a big meal but I wanted a hot meal but one that was easy to prepare. The Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli doesn’t get much easier and at the same time a very tasty meal. It comes in a can and to prepare it; just empty contents into medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot. And it’s done! Doesn’t get much easier than that. Delicious, easy to prepare, and 1 sauce pan to clean. Nice size Ravioli, good tasting Tomato and Cheese Sauce, and love the Cheese that’s in the Ravioli. Makes a good hot meal. And it’s only 180 calories and 28 net carbs per serving. I topped it with a sprinkle of Basil and Shaved Parmesan Cheese. It’s 210 calories and 36 net carbs per serving.

 

I also Baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Loaf Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.
