Today’s Menu: Grilled Cheese Sandwich w/ Portobello Mushroom and Madeira Bisque

 

Grilled Cheese and Mushroom Bisque 003
Heavy rain on and off all day. We are on a tornado and high wind warning till about 9:00 tonight. Hope we avoid that weather! Well they finished my new ramp into the house. They did a great job, it looks fantastic. Paid for the new ramp and our Microwave goes out, when it rains it pours! Hopefully get a new one sometime tomorrow. Kept it simple for dinner tonight preparing a Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a Portobello Mushroom and Madeira Bisque.

 

 
A Grilled Cheese and a Soup (Bisque) just sounded good! For my Grilled Cheese I used Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Klosterman Wheat Bread. Buttered the top and bottom of the Bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and put my Cheese in between the slices and Grilled it on a flat-top griddle. Made sure both sides were browned and then served it.

 

 

Grilled Cheese and Mushroom Bisque 005
For the Bisque or Soup I used a new one that I haven’t tried before, Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Portobello Mushroom and Madeira Bisque. It comes in a microwavable container but since our microwave has died I went with heating it up in a sauce pan. Just heated it on medium heat until it started to simmer. Campbell’s has a winner with this one! Nice chunks of Mushrooms with excellent seasoning. Served it with a side of Oyster Crackers. Fantastic Comfort Food Dinner tonight! For dessert/snack later tonight some slices of Cracker Barrel 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese on Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

Today’s Menu: Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup w/ Grilled Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

 

Grilled Ham and Swiss Pot Soup 001
A cool day today but I wanted to get out and take a look at some of the beautiful trees that have all turned to their Autumn colors. So I broke out the Sweat Shirt and got the 4 wheel mobility scooter out. The trees are beautiful, especially on our main road here in the community and down around the lake and clubhouse. I just love this time of year! For dinner a simple but warming and hearty dinner, Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup w/ a Grilled Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich.

 

 

 
For my Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich I used Kroger Private Selection Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham (Deli Sliced). I’ve been using this ham for a while now. Fantastic taste and sliced real thin. It’s 70 calories and 1 carb per serving (3 Slices). For the Cheese I used 2 slices of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss. My Cheese Brand of choice for about any dish or sandwich. The Swiss is only 40 calories a slice. For a topping spread I used Litehouse Lite Thousand Island Dressing and Dip (70 calories and 4 carbs per serving). Incredibly flavorful dressing and it’s the Lite version. I served it on a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread (70 calories and 13 net carbs). To prepare just layer you Ham and Cheese on the Bread and then Butter the top and bottom of sandwich, with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I grilled it on a flat top grill sheet till each side was toasted a golden Brown.

 

 

 

Grilled Ham and Swiss Pot Soup 004
I also used my favorite Potato Soup, Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits. Love this Soup, it’s nice and thick with some big chunks of Potato with just the right amount of Cheddar and Bacon Bits. Plus it can’t be much easier to prepare, just open the can and heat it up in a small sauce pan. Love the taste and it’s only 190 calories and 19 net carbs. A good meal for an Autumn Day or any Day for that matter. For dessert/snack later I think I’ll have some Pringle’s Fat Free Potato Chips with some Hidden Valley Smoked Bacon Dressing and Dip.

Today’s Menu: Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 
Well my original plan was to have a new recipe with Chicken Tenders that had Honey in the recipe. I thought I had plenty of Honey onCampbells New England clam Chowder 006hand but as I was gathering my ingredients I found I just had a small amount and it had turned to Sugar. I’ll learn to check ahead! So with that put on hold I went with Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder and Hearty Potatoes w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 
The Clam Chowder was easy to prepare; just empty the can into a small sauce pan and stir and heat. It’s a very good tasting Chowder that’s nice and thick. I served it with a side of Skyline Oyster Crackers. To go with the Chowder I made a Grilled Cheese Sandwich using Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar Jack Cheese. Everything simple but filling and delicious. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos w/ Side of Celery and Sliced Carrot Sticks

 

 

 

 

Chili and Cheese Nachos 002

It’s been an afternoon of March Maddness (College Basketball) and it’s going to be an evening of the same. So what better than some Chili and Cheese Nachos to eat while watching the games this evening. Quick and easy to prepare so I won’t miss any action and delicious and filling for a meal sometimes.

 

 
I used Tostito’s Whole Grain Scoops for the chips, 2 can Campbells Firehouse Chili w/ Beans, 1 small can of Sliced Black Olives, sliced Jalapenos, and Kraft 2% Pizza Cheese. Just layer in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees until the chips are warmed and cheese is melted. I think the Campbell’s Firehouse Chili makes the Nachos. It’s a seasoned just right, thick and just enough heat to make it perfect! I also sliced up some Celery Sticks and Carrots along with some Litehouse Lite ranch Vegetable Dip. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

It was laid back day today. The biggest effort of the day was changing the batteries in the remote! So needless to say there wasn’t going to be any huge dinner prepared tonight. I wanted something light and easy to prepare so I went with Chili and Cheese Nachos. I used Tostito’s Whole Grain Scoops for the chips, 2 can Campbells Firehouse Chili w/ Beans, 1 small can of Sliced Black Olives, sliced Jalapenos, and Kraft 2% Pizza Cheese. Just layer in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees until the chips are warmed and cheese is melted. I think the Campbell’s Firehouse Chili makes the Nachos. It’s a seasoned just right, thick and just enough heat to make it perfect! For dessert later a bowl of Blue Bunny Vanilla/Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: New England Clam Chowder w/ Oyster Crackers and a Hot Hammy Cheese

 

A simple but flat out lip smacking good dinner tonight! New England Clam Chowder w/ Oyster Crackers and a Hot Hammy Cheese, Sounds good but tasted even better! My Clam Chowder wasn’t home made but was every bit as good. I used Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder with Hearty Potatoes. If you have a craving for Clam Chowder but don’t have the time or just want a simple way to prepare it give Campbells a try. Great taste, plenty of Clams and Potatoes, and in a nice thick stock. It has 210 calories and 23 carbs per serving. I topped with just a sprinkle of fresh grated Dutch Smoked Gouda and some Skyline brand Oyster Crackers, I could make a meal out of the Cheese and Crackers!

 

I also prepared a Hot Hammy and Cheese Sandwich. I used Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham, Sargento Ultra Light Swiss Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. In a small skillet I heated the slices of Ham and while that was heating I split the Muffin in half and toasted it in the toaster. To assemble just put the Ham on one of the Muffin halves and top the Ham with the Sargento Swiss and add the other half of the Muffin, the Swiss will start melting immediately. A simple but quite hearty dinner! For dessert later a fresh baked Pillsbury Apple Turnover, a nice way to end the day.
