Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea this morning for Breakfast. 77 degrees, sunny and beautiful out today! Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Then I did a load of laundry. After Lunch it was outside to do some work. Got the leaf blower, rake, and cart out of the shed. It’s a perfect day to be outdoors! I enjoy doing yard work, good exercise and you get to be outside. For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni. Another one of those delicious One Pot Meals that is too good to not use the Leftovers! I’ve left the original post from last night below for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Turkey has less Calories, Carbs, and Fat, healthier and more delicious. To go along with the Chili Macaroni I had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light.

 

So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

As I started the Ground Turkey was finishing I got the Chili Macaroni ready to add to the Turkey. I started by adding 2 3/4 cups of Hot Water to the Turkey Skillet. Stirred the Water and Ground Turkey and added the Chili Macaroni Pasta Packet. Stirred it all together and increased the heat to medium high, heated until boiling. Covered and reduced the heat to simmer, cooking for 11 minutes. Stirred several times as it cooked. Removed the Skillet from the heat and took the lid off and let it cool for 3 minutes.

 

Fantastic Dish, it was Seasoned perfect, the Pasta was tender and the Ground Turkey and Black Beans were perfect with the Macaroni. Then I also had the slice of Buttered Bread. It made a really good Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyders Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

To start this Thursday Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 75 degrees, sunny and a little humid out today. After Lunch I took my friend out to Ross, Ohio, to the Produce Stands. I bought Mom a couple of Hanging Baskets of Mums. My friend purchased some Flowers and Pumpkins. I love going out to Ross! A small town with tons of Farms and Fields. It will always be my home out there. For Dinner tonight it’s Turkey Chili Macaroni.

Toady’s Menu: Dirty Rice and Ground Turkey w/ Baked French Bread

 

For Breakfast I prepared 3 slices of Bacon, a Sunny Side Up Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’m ready to face the day, I think! Started a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then it was outside. I watered my Pepper Plants and my Tomato Plants. Now that the weather has stayed hot my Plants are getting loaded with Peppers and Tomatoes. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the driveway area. Well hopefully the Cicadas are dying out, not nearly as many so far today! Before heading in, the garbage trucks ran this morning and went around and got 8 of them and moved them up to their house for them. Inside finished up the laundry. Then I dug out some large Plastic Tubs out of the shed. Cleaned them up and used them to pack stuff out of the spare room. I’m getting it straightened up for when they install the new flooring later in July. For Dinner tonight I prepared Dirty Rice and Ground Turkey w/ Baked French Bread.

 

For the Dirty Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice. The Mix includes a Long Grain Rice Mix with Vegetables and Spices. I added the Ground Turkey Sausage and 1 can of Bush’s Chili Black Beans. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread Loaf.

 

I first got a skillet and cooked the the Jennie – O Lean Ground Turkey. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. Seasoned the Turkey with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Cumin and Dried Cilantro. About half way through I added a can of Drained Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans. Stirred until well mixed and continued cooking until the Turkey was almost done. I didn’t want to over cook the Turkey or Beans because I was going to add them to the Dirty Rice as it was cooking.

 

As the Ground Turkey was cooking I grabbed another skillet and prepared the Dirty Rice. Stirred in 2 1/2 cups of Water and the Rice Mix into the saucepan until it was well blended. Brought it to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and covered. Simmered for 25 minutes until the Rice was tender. With about 5 minutes of cooking time left I added the Turkey and Black Bean Mix. I stirred that in until it was well mixed and finished out the cooking time.

 

 

I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Loaf Bread. Very Good Meal tonight! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey and Black Beans worked perfect with the Zatarain’s Dirty Rice! Excellent Meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
