Today’s Menu: Breakfast

Egg Hash Browns Sausage Links 001
If there was any doubts about Fall being here, there aren’t now! It was about 36 degrees this morning when I fetched the morning paper. The high was supposed to be in the 50’s but I don’t even think we hit 50, plus a really cold breeze. I’m always comparing local grocery prices and always amazed at people who buy Kroger only items! Yesterday at Meijer was a perfect example. While there I picked up some fresh slice Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna from their Deli. I paid $4.19 per pound for it. When I got home and started putting items away I noticed my Mom had purchased some from Kroger. The price difference was amazing, $4.99 at Kroger and $4.19 from Meijer! Same product but huge price difference. Be aware of what you’re paying for per item and where from! For dinner tonight Mom and Dad wanted a Pizza so I ordered them one from Dominos, I wanted something with a little fewer calories and carbs tonight so I prepared Breakfast for Dinner!

I prepared an Egg Sunnyside Up, seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and pan fried in Canola Oil. I then prepared a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Just as delicious as Pork Sausage but healthier. While the Sausage Links were cooking in another skillet I prepared some Hashbrowns that I topped with a bit of fresh shredded Monterey Jack Cheese. I used Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, the only brand other than Bob Evans that I use for Hash Browns. I like Simply Potatoes Hashbrowns over Bob Evans because they have fewer calories and seem to fry up better. The last item for my Breakfast Dinner was what else but Toast! I toasted up a couple of slices of the new Bread I’ve been using, Klosterman Wheat Bread. Since I’ve started using Pita Bread so often my full loaf of Bread had been going stale on me before using it all (Healthy Life Whole Grain). I started using Klosterman because you can purchase it in 1/2 loaves! Plus it’s a better tasting and fresher Bread than Healthy Life, the calories and net carbs are similar. So I toasted 2 slices and buttered them with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cold glass of 2% White Milk. For dessert/snack later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Scalloped Red Potatoes and Green BeansCrock Pot Ribs 002



Sunday afternoon and Football is back! Opening week of the NFL and it was couch potato heaven! College football started last week and now the big boys have fired it up. Nice relaxing day of football most of the day. For dinner tonight my Mom bought some Ribs yesterday so today it was Ribs! I prepared Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Scalloped Red Potatoes and Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of Sourdough Bread for Mom and Dad.



The ribs came from Kroger, they always have top quality Pork. Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then covered the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy Hawg Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low,e. for about 8 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, intoxicating! After 8 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For all of us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time.



For one side dish I prepared Idahoan Premium Steakhouse Scalloped Red Potatoes. As all the Idahoan Potato Products the Scalloped Red Potatoes are easy to fix and a delicious Potato Dish. The box contains the Potatoes, Sauce, and Topping. I added 2 Tbsp. of Butter, 1/2 cup 2% Milk, and Water. Just mix all the ingredients, pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees, and bake uncovered for about 25 minutes. Let it set for 5 minutes before serving, that lets the Sauce thicken up. I also heated up some Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I baked a loaf of Sour Dough Bread for Mom and Dad, I passed on the Bread to save on the carbs and calories. One fine meal that everyone enjoyed! For dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Provolone Buffalo Burger w/ Reduced fat Potato Chips and a side of Peaches



A beautiful day out today! About 71 degrees and sunny , a perfect day. I was able to get the 4 wheeler out for a while and got around to cleaning the shed , finally! For dinner I went light, not much of an appetite today. I prepared a 1/4 lb. buffalo Burger topped with Provolone Cheese with sides of Light Potato Chips and Sliced Peaches.

I used my favorite burger, Wild Idea Buffalo 1/4 Buffalo Burger. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. IBuffalo burger 001 then pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. I topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Provolone Cheese and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun.

For sides for my Buffalo Burger I had some Ruffles Light Wavy Chips, 80 calories and 17 carbs per serving and I had a small bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Sliced Peaches. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of jolly Time Pop Corn.
