Hand-Chopped Steak Burgers with Caramelized Fennel
Chopping steak instead of using ground beef to make these healthy burgers gives them a more toothsome texture. Come summer, give this a cooler spin by tossing the raw fennel with 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil to serve alongside………

Puttanesca Pork Chops
This flavorful pork chop dinner recipe is proof that bold Neapolitan puttanesca sauce can liven up more than just spaghetti. Unlike brined olives like Kalamatas, oil-cured olives have a meatier bite because they’re coated in salt then macerated in oil. Look for them on olive bars or with other Italian products. Serve with sautéed broccoli rabe and whole-wheat orzo……….

Slow-Cooker Braised Beef with Carrots and Turnips
The spice blend in this healthy beef stew recipe—cinnamon, allspice and cloves—may conjure images of apple pie, but the combo is a great fit in savory applications too. Serve over creamy polenta or buttered whole-wheat egg noodles…………

Beef Pot Roast with Gravy w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Beef Pot Roast with Gravy w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes

 

 

Went out to grab the Morning Papers and it is COLD out there this morning. It’s 20 degrees with a wind chill in the teens, COLD! Partly sunny and 37 degrees but the wind chill kept it at below freezing most of the day. So for Breakfast I prepared one of my favorites, Hash Browns and Ham topped with an Egg and Cheese. I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, topped them with some cooked diced Ham, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today. Then watched some Football for the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight a Beef Pot Roast with Gravy w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

While at Costco the other day I came across a Morton’s of Omaha Beef Pot Roast with Gravy. It sounded and look delicious so I bought a container of it. It’s precooked so all you have to do is heat it up. There’s 2 ways you can prepare it, by the microwave or by boiling the bag in water. I went with the microwave preparation. To prepare it; Remove the outer sleeve and the tray seal. Leave the reheat bag with the Beef Pot Roast in the tray. Cut 4 small holes in the top of the reheat bag for ventilation. Place the tray with the reheat bag into the microwave. Microwave on high for 10 minutes. Cut end of bag with scissors and empty into tray for serving. Very easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

For one side I roasted some Carrots. I bought a bag of Whole Carrots from Kroger. Washed the Carrots off and then sliced them up. I grabbed a medium-sized sauce pan and filed it with water. Heated it on high bringing it to a boil. Added the sliced Carrots and boiled until almost for tender. Drained the water and set the Carrots aside. For the Potatoes I used a bag of Petite Red Gourmet Potatoes. Gave them a quick wash with water and the cut them in half. Put them in a bowl and seasoned them with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, and Extra Light Olive Oil. Mixed them in a bowl until seasoned. I had already preheated the oven on 425 degrees. I got a baking sheet and covered it with foil. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I then added the sliced Carrots and Red Potatoes to the pan. Seasoned them with Dried Rosemary and Dried Thyme then mixed them together in the pan. Put the pan in the oven and baked until fork tender.

 

 

 

 

With everything done I grabbed a large serving bowl and added the Carrots and Red Potatoes. Then I topped them with Beef Pot Roast. I saved the gravy that was with the Roast in another bowl and added that to top the Roast with when serving.This is the 1st time I tried the Morton’s of Omaha Beef Pot Roast with Gravy and it was delicious! The Beef was tender and flavorful and the Gravy was seasoned just right! The Carrots and Potatoes were perfect with the Beef Roast. Fantastic Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Recipes Fresh from the Farmers’ Market

From the EatingWell website and Magazine its Recipes Fresh from the Farmers’ Market. Delicious Recipes Fresh from the Farmers’ Market with recipes like; Grilled Chicken Ratatouille, Juniper-Marinated Bison Flank Steak, and Peach and Blueberry Cobbler. Find these recipes and more all at the EatingWell website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy throughout the Holiday Seasons! http://www.eatingwell.com/

Recipes Fresh from the Farmers’ Market
Summer is the season to take advantage of your local farmers’ market. Are you inspired by the piles of colorful, juicy tomatoes, fresh ears of sweet corn and shiny peppers in every color of the rainbow? Trade in your plain corn on the cob and tossed salad for these recipes that showcase your healthy haul in all its fragrant, colorful glory.

Grilled Chicken Ratatouille
We gave this classic Provençal dish a taste of summer by grilling the vegetables traditionally used in ratatouille (bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, tomato). Topped with grilled chicken, it makes an easy main course for summer entertaining. We like fresh marjoram and basil to compliment the flavors, but any fresh herb will work. Serve with polenta and a glass of Pinot Noir…….

Juniper-Marinated Bison Flank Steak
Rich, lean bison meat takes to the juniper-infused marinade in this easy flank steak recipe. Look for juniper berries in well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find bison, beef flank steak is an ideal substitute………….

Peach and Blueberry Cobbler
This is a healthier version of a traditional cobbler, with canola oil in place of some of the butter and whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. Unlike more classic biscuit-topped cobblers, the peaches and blueberries are nestled into a tender batter that swells around the fruit as it bakes. Other fruits may be substituted. It’s especially beautiful when baked in and served right from a cast-iron skillet………….

Lunch Meat of the Week -Pepperoni

November 8, 2018 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Lunch Meat of the Week | Leave a comment

Packaged pepperoni

Pepperoni is an American variety of salami, made from cured pork and beef mixed together and seasoned with paprika or other chili pepper.

Pepperoni is characteristically soft, slightly smoky, and bright red in color. Thinly sliced pepperoni is a popular pizza topping in American-style pizzerias and is used as filling in the West Virginia pepperoni roll.

The term “pepperoni” is a borrowing of peperoni, the plural of peperone, the Italian word for bell pepper. The first use of “pepperoni” to refer to a sausage dates to 1919. In Italian, the word peperoncino (diminutive of peperone) refers to hot and spicy peppers.

Pepperoni is a cured dry sausage similar to the spicy salamis of southern Italy, such as salsiccia Napoletana piccante, a spicy dry sausage from Naples, or the soppressata from Calabria. The main differences are that pepperoni has a finer grain (akin to salami of Milan, a spiceless regional variant of salami), is usually softer, and is produced with the use of an artificial casing (instead Italian salami are produced using natural gut for casing and are made of pure pork). Pepperoni is mass-produced to meet the demand for the sausage. In most of Italy pepperoni would be considered a type of salamino piccante.

Pepperoni is usually made from a mixture of pork and beef. Turkey meat is also commonly used as a substitute, but the use of poultry in pepperoni must be appropriately labeled in the United

States.

Curing, with nitrates or nitrites (usually used in modern curing agents, to protect against botulism and other forms of microbiological decay) also contributes to pepperoni’s reddish color, by reacting with heme in the myoglobin of the proteinaceous components of the meat.

According to Convenience Store Decisions, Americans annually consume 251.7 million pounds of pepperoni on 36% of all pizzas produced nationally. Pepperoni has a tendency to curl up from the edges in the heat of a pizza oven. Some pepperoni is produced in thicker slices, so that the edges curl intentionally.

Pepperoni can also be found accompanying different types of cheeses as a cheap snack food in convenience stores or gas stations.

In Nova Scotia, deep-fried pepperoni served on its own (usually with a honey mustard dipping sauce) is common pub food.

 

Healthy Mexican Recipes for Weeknights

Enjoy Healthy Mexican Recipes for Weeknights with recipes like; Vegetarian Spinach Enchiladas, Vegetarian Spinach Enchiladas, and Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake. Find these recipes and more all at the EatingWell website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! http://www.eatingwell.com/

Healthy Mexican Recipes for Weeknights
We love Mexican cuisine, but often going out for Mexican food means extra calories, fat and salt. It doesn’t have to be that way, because the key ingredients that make Mexican recipes naturally healthy—beans, rice, salsa, avocados—are so delicious. Stock up on these healthy foods and whip up a mouthwatering Mexican meal at home any night of the week.

Vegetarian Spinach Enchiladas
This vegetarian enchilada recipe is weeknight-fast when you skip the step of filling and rolling the enchiladas and make a stacked enchilada casserole instead. Just layer the tortillas, sauce and cheesy spinach filling the way you would lasagna and have the casserole in the oven in 20 minutes…….

Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake
Shrimp enchiladas offer a taste of coastal Mexican cuisine but some versions contain so much cheese, butter and sour cream that they can pack a whopping 50 grams of fat per serving. Our version has vibrant flavor and only half the calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, plus we use precooked peeled shrimp so you can get the dish on your table fast enough for a weeknight supper. The addition of refried beans helps makes these enchiladas an excellent source of fiber as well……………..

Chilaquiles Casserole
Our version of this enchilada-style chilaquiles casserole is packed with nutritious beans and vegetables. Canned prepared enchilada sauce has great flavor and keeps the prep time quick. It can vary in heat level so find one that suits your taste. If you want to eliminate the heat altogether, try a green enchilada sauce (which is often milder than red) or substitute two 8-ounce cans of plain tomato sauce……………….
