Today’s Menu: Thanksgiving Day Dinner!

 

Thanksgiving Day Dinner 008
First a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It’s been a mostly cloudy day around here, high in the 50’s. The finger I had surgery on is looking good, go next week to have the stitches removed. Not a lot going on today. It was just me, Mom, and Dad for Thanksgiving Dinner with others stopping by later in the day and evening. Spent the day as Mom’s sous chef, she wanted to make dinner. For dinner tonight it’s Thanksgiving Dinner!

 

 

Thanksgiving Day Dinner 003
We got the Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Whole Turkey out of the freezer and into the oven today! Jennie – O sent me this 13 lb. Bird about a month ago and we’ve been waiting to break it out! Jennie sends me one every year for being a member of their Switch Club, so a big thank you again to Jennie – O Turkey!

 

 
It couldn’t be any easier to prepare the Turkey. It goes straight from the freezer into the oven. It comes in a Oven Ready Bag. Preheat the oven on 375°F. Just remove it from the outer package, but leaving it in the cooking bag. Make a few of slits in the bag, place in the roasting pan, and your set. Then roast the Turkey until a meat thermometer reaches 165°F. in the breast and 180°F. in the thigh, about 4 hours. Let it rest out of the oven for 15 minutes and then let the feast begin! The Turkey, as always, came out mouth-watering delicious! Fantastic flavor, moist, juicy, and it browns up perfectly in the heating bag. So thank you agin to Jennie – O for our free Turkey! Below is the rest of our Thanksgiving Menu, my Mom went over board again but she loves making Thanksgiving dinner. I kept an eye on the Bird and helped and Mom out. Enjoy everyone!

Today’s Menu: BBQ Country Style Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

 

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 007
After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. As I was leaving McDonald’s I was coming to a red light and started slowing down and my brake line busted. I wasn’t going very fast so it was easy to stop, and I was close to home. Called a tow truck when I got home and had it towed to the mechanic I always use. My car has 148,000 miles on it and I’m replacing a few things on now and then but still cheaper than a car payment. Just hope my run of car problems don’t continue! Anyway for dinner tonight it’s all comfort food! I prepared BBQ Country Style Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread.

 

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 001
While in Kroger yesterday I noticed they had Country Style Pork Ribs on sale so I picked a package up. So tonight I’m preparing BBQ Country Style Ribs. A simple and easy recipe to prepare. I’ll need: 1 package Country Style Pork Ribs, Minced Garlic, Sea Salt, JB”s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce, and JB’s Fat Boy Premium All Purpose Rub.

Then to prepare them I preheated the oven to 250 degrees F. In a shallow baking pan I placed the ribs in a single layer; salted and applied the Rub. Spread the garlic on the ribs. Bake in a preheated oven for 2 hours – the ribs should be tender. Drained the grease and liquid. Poured the BBQ sauce over the ribs. Returned to oven and bake one more hour at 200 to 250 degrees F. And let’s eat! Fantastic BBQ flavor and the ribs were so moist and tender! We have a good “Keeper Recipe” for Country Style Ribs!

 
For one side I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better.

Then I opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned in the Summer of 2013. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread, Mom’s favorite. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Frozen Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Roasted Chicken Panini w/ Mash Potatoes and Green Beans

 

Roasted Chicken Panini w Mash Potatoes and Green Beans 012
A light Breakfast and then off to an early Dermatologist appointment. My yearly checkup, nothing new and everything looked good! From there I took Mom to Kroger and stopped by the bank for her. Back home did a few things around the house and then did some cleaning outside. Had the cart for a while after getting everything done. Another gorgeous day, and it’s the first day of Fall! Fall is my favorite season. For dinner tonight it’s all leftovers, Roasted Chicken Panini w/ Mash Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

Love those Leftovers!That’s my dinner tonight, leftovers from last night’s dinner. I used the PERDUE® OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, and the Canned Green Beans. Everything was so good last night I wasn’t going to let the leftovers go to waste.

 

I made the leftover Chicken into a Panini Chicken Sandwich. For the bread I used Klosterman Wheat Bread and Roasted Chicken Panini w Mash Potatoes and Green Beans 003Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard for seasoning. I got my Panini Grill out, been a while since I’ve used it. Sprayed the the Press with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and plugged it up to heat it up. I used 2 slices of the Bread and put a light layer of the Stone Ground Mustard on the bottom slice. Layered the Chicken on top of that. Then added more of the Mustard on the top half slice. I then put the sandwich into the Press and let it heat up for about 4 minutes. This is one good Sandwich! The Panini Press grilled it perfectly. The Chicken was delicious as it was last night and the Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard was perfect on the Chicken.

Then I also heated up the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and the leftover Canned Green Beans. I love Green Beans and the Canned Green Beans we canned from last Summer are amazing! Just as good as fresh Green Beans and so easy to prepare. As I said, “I love those Leftovers”

 

 

 

 
The Panini Press

A panini press or grill is a type of contact grill designed specifically for heating sandwiches, meat products, Panini Pressvegetables, or specialty menu items. Almost exclusively powered by electric elements, it comprises a heated bottom plate that is fixed, with a heated top plate that closes on, and comes in contact with the food. The function of the Panini grill is to heat food to an appropriate internal temperature with desirable external characteristics (i.e. food safe, melted cheese, crisp finish, grill marks).

Designed for countertop use, these appliances meet the operational need for fast, consistent production of a la carte or small batch cooked products. Commercial Panini grills are a system of three main characteristics: Platen Geometry and Material Electrical Power, and Hinge Mechanism and Contact. The various combinations of these individual aspects affect the performance of the grill. Performance is defined by such aspects as cooking time, finish of the cooked product, ease of operation & maintenance, and durability.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Terris Major Steak w/ Mushrooms, Baked Potato, and Green Beans

 

 

 

Grilled Buffalo Terris Major Steak 003

A chilly start to a Spring Day here today, 36 degrees early this morning! It was sunny out all day but a cool breeze blowing and in the 50’s. Went to one of my favorite grocery stores this morning, Jungle Jim’s International Market. You can spend hours in that store and still not see everything. They had some samples of Bleu Cheese that would just melt in your mouth! Love that store. For dinner tonight it was my favorite Meat, Buffalo or Bison if you prefer. I prepared a Grilled Buffalo Terris Major Steak w/ Sauteed Steak Cut Mushrooms, Baked Potato, and Green Beans.

 

 
I prepared one of my favorite cuts of Steak, the Wild Idea Buffalo Terris Major Steak. It’s come on of my favorite cuts of Buffalo because it just always so tender. I started by seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn then brushing it lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Fired the grill up and let it get nice and hot, and grilled! Buffalo Meat is very lean and gets done a lot quicker than other Meats. It only takes about 3 1/2 minutes of grilling per side and it’s ready. This one was no exception, it came out medium rare and juicy! I just love the incredible sweet and wild flavor of the Wild Idea Buffalo Meats. I love any Bison or Buffalo but Wild Idea Buffalo is my favorite. Topped it with some Sautéed Steak Cut Mushrooms.

 

 

 
For one side I had a Baked Potato, a Steak’s natural companion. Seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I heated some leftover Canned Green Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Easter Dinner – Roasted Veal Shoulder w/ Canned Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

Easter Veal Shoulder 2014 004
First I’d like to wish each and every one of you, and your families, a Happy Easter! I was up about 6:30 this morning, went out to get the Sunday Papers. Grabbed my neighbors papers first and dropped it off at their door’s and couldn’t help but admire what an absolutely gorgeous Sunrise! The Eastern sky was just lit up with color, a beautiful Easter Morning! Came in made Breakfast, had a cup of fresh brewed Green Tea, and it’s a fantastic start to a beautiful day. For Easter Dinner I prepared a Roasted Veal Shoulder w/ Canned Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

Easter Veal Shoulder 2014 003
We had Veal Clod Boneless Roast for the first time a few weeks ago. It was so tender, moist, and delicious we decided right that we were going to have this for our Easter Dinner. I purchase it from Kroger, which so far is the only place I’ve seen it sold. This one weighed 2.20 lbs. It comes with instructions on how to prepare it and a pop up thermometer already inserted in it. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinders Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Thyme, and Rosemary. Instructions were very easy I just placed the Roast on a rack in a shallow pan. Roasted at 325 degrees for about 72 minutes. Meat thermometer should read 145 degrees for medium rare, 160 degrees for medium and 170 degrees for well done. I prepared our’s at 150 degrees for a shade under medium. When done I let it sit for about 5 minutes before slicing. The Roast came out just as incredible as it did the first time! Juicy and moist and just packed with flavor, and so very tender.

 

 

 

Easter Veal Shoulder 2014 002
I had made some Italian Pasta Salad, yesterday, for an Appetizer for today. It always tastes better after it refrigerates overnight. Made it with Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, fresh Shredded Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, and McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning. For one side I opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer. Then I also prepared our favorite household Mashed Potato, Bob Evan’s Original Mashed Potatoes. Finally reheated the Pillsbury Rustic French Bread I baked yesterday. Quite an Easter Feast! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Place Roast on a rack in a shallow pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in the thickest part of Veal, not in fat. Roast at 325 degrees for 31 – 34 minutes per pound for medium doneness. Meat thermometer should read 145 degrees for medium rare, 160 degrees for medium and 170 degrees for well done.
