So, what’s the difference between a scone and a biscuit? The answer generally boils down to one ingredient: eggs. Scones have them, biscuits don’t.
Other than that, the ingredients and process are pretty much the same. Both scones and biscuits are usually made with some combination of flour, baking powder or baking soda (or a combination of both), salt, sugar, milk or buttermilk, eggs (if you’re making scones) and a fat (butter, Crisco, lard). The dry ingredients are mixed together, the fat is “cut in” with a pastry cutter, two knives or your fingers, and the liquid is added until the dough just comes together. The dough is gently kneaded very briefly then cut into circles or triangles and baked………

Marinara Meat Sauce Topped Baked Potato
Break out of your pasta routine by subbing in a baked potato in this simple and satisfying dinner for one……

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers
Why put the cheese on top of the burger when half of it just melts off? Instead, form the burger around the cheese so you can char the meat and safeguard the more delicate flavors. Use any mixture of hard or semihard cheeses—Emmentaler and Gouda or Asiago and Parmigiano-Reggiano also pair well…….

Oven-Fried Beef Taquitos for Two
This healthy beef taquitos recipe for two calls for baking instead of deep-frying, making the taquitos substantially healthier than what you’d get at a restaurant. One order of these little deep-fried, rolled-up tacos at a restaurant can set you back almost 1,000 calories and 60 grams of fat! Don’t worry if some of the taquitos crack open while baking—they’re still crispy and delicious. Serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole and reduced-fat sour cream……

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Scrambled 1 Egg, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I still struggled a bit with the Phantom Pains but nothing like the night before. I’ll sure be glad when these stop! Had a lot of rain overnight but the bad weather went around us. Some places had tornado touchdowns. Cooler out today, high of 54 degrees and partly cloudy. After Breakfast me and Mom went to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love going to this store, anything and more you want they have it! Back home not a lot going on. I’m still resting up from the Phantom Pains, it really took it out of me this time. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. Thanks again to my friends that keep bringing me the Grouper. I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 


To go with Fish Sandwich I prepared a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup, one of my favorites. Just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

For Breakfast on this Chilly Monday morning I fried up some Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also fried a Sunnyside Up Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. As I mentioned it’s Chilli out there. Went out to get the morning paper and it was 30 degrees with a cold breeze, 53 degrees and cloudy out for the day. Did some house cleaning after Lunch and finished up some laundry for Mom. Pretty quiet Monday today. A good day to make a Slow Cooker 3 Bean Turkey Chili! Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

 

When I prepare my Chili I prepare the Ground Turkey and mix the Beans the night before. So the morning I’m making it everything is ready! I had the Crock Pot set up also. To make the Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in a 1/2 a Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it and it turns out delicious.

 

The first thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

 

The Beans and Ground Turkey were prepared last night. I started by opening all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Then in the morning, I added the Beans to Crock Pot. 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. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours.

 

Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

 

To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. I love the combimation of Chili and Cornbread! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. I love this Breakfast trio more and more! No McDonald’s for Mom and Dad today, I made Breakfast for them also. I prepared a couple of Poached Eggs, fried some Bob Evan’s Breakfast sausage Links, made some Hash Browns, and baked some Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits. Now this beats their usual McDonald’s Breakfast anytime!

 

 

Mom went on to Church and stayed home and watched Dad. He’s to the point now where he can not be left alone so it’s up to us to take care of him. After Mom left I did a couple of loads of laundry. Then it was on to house cleaning, dusted and vacuumed. We have wooden flooring in the Dining Room and Hallway. So I used a dust mop on it and then a light wood floor wax. Done with cleaning inside I cleaned up outside after Lunch. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the wooden deck and driveway areas. The leaves are all turning and falling. It’s 78 degrees and cloudy out. It looks like our last warm day, cooler weather moving in with rain tomorrow. Anyway everything all done and just relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. For dinner tonight t was leftovers, reheated the I Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta. As always when I make this dish, it’s leftovers the next day. This so good there’s no way I’ll let the leftovers go to waste! Below I’ve left the original post from yesterday, for description and instructions on how to prepare it. See you tomorrow!

 

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.

 

 

 

It all comes together for one easily made and delicious dinner. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
