Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken

 

 

To start this Sunday morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a hot one out there today! We had a heat index of 107 degrees. Light Rain and high winds came through in the late afternoon and cooled it off a bit. Not much going on today, did laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken.

I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always taste even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.

Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in!

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up a Kroger Rotisserie Whole Chicken. We love Rotisserie Chicken, delicious and easy to prepare. When it was time for Dinner I heated the oven on 325 degrees. Got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Took the Chicken out of the package and into the baking pan. Reheat it for 30 minutes. After the Chicken cooled a bit I pulled all the Chicken from the bones and it was ready to serve!

To serve made a bed of the Pasta and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and some more of the Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing. The Pasta Salad and Rotisserie Chicken are a perfect combination. The Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor for the Pasta and the Rotisserie Chicken was seasoned perfectly! I enjoy Simple and Delicious Meals so much! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Dinner Tonight: Grilled Pastrami and Swiss Sandwich w/ Italian Pasta Salad

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I didn’t want anything too heavy I had to be at the Hospital for a EMG/Nerve test at 8:30 this morning. They want to make sure my Diabetes 2 isn’t creating any nerve damage. I also had blood work done. Beautiful day out today, mostly sunny and 65 degrees. Got the cart out and did some yard work and later took a spin in the cart around the neighborhood. So good to be able to get out again without having to bundle up! For Dinner tonight its a Grilled Pastrami and Swiss Sandwich w/ Italian Pasta Salad.

 

 

 

 

 

To make my Grilled Pastrami and Swiss Sandwich I’ll be using; French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, Boar’s Head Top Round Pastrami, Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Klosterman Rye Bread to make my Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of the Rye Bread. Next spread the Mayo on the bottom slice of Bread, next layered the Pastrami, spread the Brown Mustard, and added a slice of the Swiss. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a large skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Swiss Cheese melted. Love these Grilled Sandwiches!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Grilled Sandwich I had prepared some Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Smart Taste Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Green Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovy Paste, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and topped with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. Boiled the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use. Really enjoyed the Dinner tonight of a Grilled Pastrami and Swiss Sandwich along with some Italian Pasta Salad. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 


Boar’s Head Cap-Off Top Round Pastrami
This hand-trimmed top round is rich and smokey and is generously coated with spices, including black pepper, ginger, cloves and coriander, then patiently smoked. Boar’s Head Top Round Pastrami is bursting with classic New York.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had something a little different, Grilled Cheese and Egg Spam Sandwich. Came across this recipe on Spam’s Facebook page. The Sandwich turned out fantastic! Very good combination of ingredients and easily prepared. Your using; 2 slices Turkey SPAM® , 2 slices Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, 1 slice Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and 1 large Egg. Mom even had one and loved it, so its Parent Approved! I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed over to the rehab center to see Dad. I went with him for his morning therapy. He did real good today, proud of him! Still up in the air whether or not he can back home, hope so! Back home did a few things around the house. Outside it’s mostly cloudy, windy, and a high of 53 degrees. For Dinner tonight I prepared Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos.

 


I wanted something light and delicious so what better than some Soft Tacos, haven’t had any in a while and it sounded good. To make these I’ll need the following; Old El Paso Flour Tortillas, 1 Rotisserie Chicken (Pulled Chicken), various Spices (to season the Chicken), 1 can Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans in Mild Chili Sauce), 1 can Green Giant Steam Crisp Nibblets (Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, sliced Black Olives, chopped Lettuce, Daisy Light Sour Cream, and Old El Paso Taco Sauce (Smoky Chipotle). The makings of something good!

 

 

I had purchased the Rotisserie Whole Chicken from Kroger yesterday afternoon. After getting it home I pulled all the meat and stored it in a plastic container in the fridge until today when it was time to make the Tacos. I put the Chicken in a skillet and reheated it on medium heat. As the Chicken was heating I seasoned it with Ground Cumin, Dried Cilantro, Chili Seasoning, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

As the Chicken was heating I got my other ingredients ready. I opened up a can of Early California Whole Large Black Olives (Reduced Salt) and sliced them up. Then I got 2 small sauce pans; 1 for the Chili Beans and 1 for the Corn. Heated both until heated through.

 

 

 

 

With all the ingredients heated and ready I got the Soft Tortillas ready. I wrapped the Tortillas in paper towels and microwaved them for 40 seconds. Now to make the Soft Tacos. I first layered in the Chicken, followed by the Taco Sauce, Chili Beans, Corn Kernels, Taco Sauce, Lettuce, and topped with a dab of Light Sour Cream. Loaded and ready to eat! Love these Soft Tacos. All the ingredients just come together to make one flavorful meal. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Simple Grilled Cheese and Egg SPAM® Sandwich

This SPAM® sandwich recipe calls for eggs. But we’re not going to use all kinds of silly made-up egg words to describe it. Like, for example, we could say the taste is “eggscellent” or “eggstraordinary.” And that it’ll fill you with “eggscitement.” But that just feels too “eggspected” and there’s no “eggspletive” way we’re going to go there.
http://www.spam.com/recipes

 

Ingredients

2 slices SPAM® Single Classic
2 slices bread
1 slice cheese
1 large egg

 

1.In small skillet, fry SPAM® Singles over medium-high heat, turning once, about 15 mintues.
2.In separate small skillet, cook egg to desired doneness.
3.Spread 1 side of each slice bread with butter. Place in skillet, butter-side-down; top 1 slice with cheese. Cook until cheese starts to melt and bread is toasted. Top cheese with SPAM® and egg. Cover with top slice bread.
