I love all Cheese……..

Cheese Health Benefits – Calcium, Protein and More. Like all dairy foods, cheese provides calcium and protein, as well as some vitamin A, B12, riboflavin, zinc and phosphorus. And it’s a source of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a fat that may have anti-cancer, weight-reducing, and heart-protective effects.

Healthy Chorizo Sausage Recipes
Find healthy, delicious chorizo sausage recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Slow-Cooker Pork Tinga Tacos
Saucy tinga is most often made with chicken, but we opted for pork shoulder, which becomes meltingly tender in the slow cooker. Either way, it features a smoky chipotle-laced tomato sauce and a crispy chorizo topping. Serve with Greek yogurt or sour cream, if desired……..

Chorizo-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
This mouthwatering pork tenderloin is stuffed with chorizo, cheese and spinach. Once you master stuffing a pork tenderloin—you just cut the tenderloin almost in half lengthwise, pound it, fill it and tie it closed with kitchen string—you won’t want it any other way. Serve with sautéed red peppers tossed with capers, parsley and sherry vinegar and roasted potatoes. To double this recipe, use 2 skillets or brown the tenderloins one at a time………

Chickpea and Chorizo Fideos
This quick, one-pot version of fideos, a toasted pasta recipe served in Spain, gets a smoky flavor from delicious chorizo. If you can’t find Spanish chorizo, pepperoni works well in its place. Serve with a green salad drizzled with sherry vinaigrette…………….

Dinner Tonight: Leftover: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

 

For Breakfast this morning to start my Saturday off I prepared a Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Sunny, hot, and humid out today. Summer like weather has returned! Got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work before it got too hot and humid out. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas also. Then it was an afternoon of College Football. For dinner tonight Leftovers: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

Made an easy Dinner tonight, warmed up leftovers! I had the leftover Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta from last night. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

To make the dish I’ll need; 1 Box Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper and 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts.

 

 

 

 

 

I love the Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper. I’ve tried a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. This really turns out delicious and an easy meal to prepare! The Rotini and Cheese Sauce is excellent and the Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor for the Chicken is one of the better Crumb Coatings I’ve had for Chicken. To prepare it first go ahead and make the Pasta, by the box directions. Just boil, stir, and season.

 

 

 

As the Pasta was cooking I prepared the Chicken, I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. I cut each Breast into 3 pieces. Coated each piece with the provided Seasoned Crumbs and fried until done. The full instructions are at the end of the post. The Chicken Helper box contains Rotini Pasta with Naturally Flavored Cheesy Sauce Mix and Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor. I added the Chicken, Water, 2% Milk, Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper.

 

 

 


I also baked a loaf of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Diet Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

 

 

To start this Friday morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. First time I’ve the Healthy Life Brand in a while. Kroger is the only store that carries them around here and they had not had them in stock for a couple of months. I topped it with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 85 degrees out today, more humid also. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer for a few items and then by their Lawn and Garden. I’m looking for some Fall Mums, a bit early for the good ones to be out yet. For dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

 

To make the dish I’ll need; 1 Box Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper and 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts.

Asian Chicken Salad
Crunchy vegetables and tender chicken breasts tossed in a tangy vinaigrette make a refreshing main-dish salad. If you poach the chicken yourself, reserve ¾ cup of the cooking liquid to make the dressing…….

Creamy Buffalo Chicken Salad
In this Buffalo wings-inspired chicken salad, Greek yogurt replaces more than half of the mayonnaise. We like the flavor of Frank’s RedHot hot sauce, but Sriracha and Tabasco are delicious options too. Serve this healthy chicken salad as an open-face sandwich or scoop it on top of fresh salad greens………

Apple and Grilled Chicken Salad with Cheddar Toasts
This hearty grilled chicken salad recipe highlights the classic combination of sharp Cheddar and sweet crunchy apples. For a fabulous starter anytime you entertain, simply skip the chicken……..

Today’s Menu: Kitchen Closed, Pizza Hut tonight!

 

 

To start my morning off I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Restless night, still sore from the fall I had. Still raining out. We’ve had about 3″ inches or more with the heavy rains moving in this morning. Lot of local flooding here in the area. Good chance of more rain coming in tomorrow. So not a lot going on, had everything done. So I kicked back and watched Football all day!

 

 

 

 

I was ready to prepare Dinner tonight but Mom wanted Pizza. And we all know, “What Mom wants Mom gets”. We normally order from Domino’s but she wanted Pizza Hut tonight. I ordered a medium Pizza. First one I’ve had in a very, very long time! I must admit, it was great! Plenty of toppings with Mushrooms, Pepperoni, Black Olives, Italian Sausage, Green Olives. The Pizza arrived on time and steaming hot! As I said plenty of toppings, sauce was great and cheese, well I love all cheese! Back to healthier eating tomorrow as the Kitchen reopens! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Peach Diet Snapple to drink. Take care all!

Oven-Fried Chicken on a Stick
Here’s a fun way to serve oven-fried chicken for a picnic: put it on a stick. It’s fabulous served with this homemade Vidalia onion and honey-mustard sauce, but it’s also great with barbecue sauce or Frank’s hot sauce. This is an easy recipe to double if you’re serving a crowd….

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork–and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw……….

8-Layer Taco Salad
This gorgeous and colorful 8-layer taco salad recipe is made healthier by using ground turkey in place of beef, adding Greek yogurt and bumping up the amount of vegetables. Serve this salad in a clear glass bowl and you’ll have an eye-catching party-worthy dinner or potluck side in just 30 minutes………..
