Easy Shrimp Stir-Fry with Green Pepper, Pineapple and Bacon
This sweet, spicy and super-easy shrimp-and-vegetable stir-fry starts with a very small amount of bacon in the wok, which creates drippings that add tons of smoky flavor to the vegetables and shrimp that go in next. Keep the salt in check by using reduced-sodium tamari sauce. To complete this easy healthy dinner, add cooked brown rice……………….

Grilled Blackened Shrimp Tacos

Today’s Menu: Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

To start this Monday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom had the same for a change, no McDonald’s! Mostly sunny and 49 degrees out today. So after Breakfast I went to Kroger for a few items and back home. Then later, after Lunch, I took my car and had it washed and then to bank. Back home got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

 

 

I had picked up a box of Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce at Kroger’s earlier and having it tonight. I purchased the Large Size, about 2 1/2 servings. I’m also baking a few slices of the New York Bakery Texas Toast – Lite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it s very easy. It comes frozen and to prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Leave the film on tray, but do not vent. Place the tray on a baking sheet on the center rack of the oven. Cook 56 Minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Let stand 1 Minute and Dinner is ready. I really enjoy this Lasagna! Plenty of Sauce and Meat and the Noodles are good size and tender. One easy way to have a Lasagna Dinner! The Lasagna is 260 calories and 25 net carbs per serving.

 

 

 

 

 


I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Sprite to drink.

One of America’s Favorites – Quesadillas

March 11, 2019 at 5:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment

Three quesadilla halves

A quesadilla’ or sometimes specifically a cheese quesadilla, is a Mexican dish, consisting of a tortilla that is filled primarily with cheese, and sometimes meats, beans, vegetables, and spices, and then cooked on a griddle. Traditionally, a corn tortilla is used, but it can also be made with a flour tortilla, particularly in northern Mexico and the United States.

A full quesadilla is made with two tortillas that hold a layer of cheese between them. A half is a single tortilla that has been filled with cheese and folded into a half-moon shape. A quick version of the quesadilla, the cheese tortilla, is microwaved and often served to kids.

The quesadilla has its origins in colonial Mexico. The quesadilla as a food has changed and evolved over many years as people experimented with different variations of it. Quesadillas are frequently sold at Mexican restaurants all over the world.

Types:

Original Mexican quesadilla

Quesadillas

In the central and southern regions of Mexico, a quesadilla is a flat circle of cooked corn masa, called a tortilla, warmed to soften it enough to be folded in half, and then filled. They are typically filled with Oaxaca cheese (queso Oaxaca), a stringy Mexican cheese made by the pasta filata (stretched-curd) method. The quesadilla is then cooked on a comal until the cheese has completely melted. They are usually cooked without the addition of any oil. Often the quesadillas are served with green or red salsa, chopped onion, and guacamole. While Oaxaca (or string) cheese is the most common filling, other ingredients are also used in addition to, or even substituting for, the cheese. These can include cooked vegetables, such as potatoes with chorizo, squash blossoms, mushrooms, epazote, huitlacoche, and different types of cooked meat, such as chicharron, tinga made of chicken or beef, or cooked pork. In some places, quesadillas are also topped with other ingredients, in addition to the fillings they already have. Avocado or guacamole, chopped onion, tomato, serrano chiles, and cilantro are the most common. Salsas may also be added as a topping.

Mexican quesadillas are traditionally cooked on a comal, which is also used to prepare tortillas. As a variation, the quesadillas can be fried in oil to make quesadillas fritas. The main difference is that, while the traditional ones are prepared by filling the partially cooked tortillas, then cooked until the cheese melts, the fried ones are prepared like a pastry, preparing the uncooked masa in small circles, then topping with the filling and finally folding the quesadilla to form the pastry. It is then immersed into hot oil until the exterior looks golden and crispy.

Other variations include the use of wheat flour tortillas instead, especially in northeastern Mexico. Wheat dough is most commonly used in place of corn masa. In this case, the flour tortilla is prepared, folded and filled with cheese, exactly as the corn.

Sometimes, cheese and ham are sandwiched between two flour tortillas, then cut into wedges to serve what is commonly known as sincronizada (Spanish for “synchronized”) in Mexico. Despite appearing almost the same as a quesadilla, it is considered a completely different dish. Tourists frequently confuse the sincronizada with the quesadilla because it is typically called a quesadilla in most Mexican restaurants outside of Mexico.

U.S.

Blue corn quesadillas

Quesadillas served at a Friendly’s restaurant in New Jersey
The quesadilla is a regional favorite in the southwestern U.S. where it is similar to a ‘grilled cheese sandwich’. It is prepared in a similar manner except for the inclusion of local ingredients. A flour tortilla is heated on a griddle, then flipped and sprinkled with a grated, melting cheese (queso quesadilla), such as Monterey Jack, Cheddar cheese, or Colby Jack. Once the cheese melts, other ingredients; such as shredded meat, peppers, onions, or guacamole may be added, and it is then folded and served.

Another preparation involves cheese and other ingredients sandwiched between two flour tortillas, with the whole package grilled on an oiled griddle and flipped so both sides are cooked and the cheese is melted. This version is often cut into wedges to serve. A home appliance (quesadilla maker) is sold to produce this kind of quesadilla, although it does not use oil and cooks both sides at once. This type is similar to the Mexican sincronizada; but in the United States, they often also have fajita beef or chicken or other ingredients instead of ham. That kind of quesadilla is also Mexican, and it is called “gringa” (the name varies in some regions in Mexico, there’s also a type of quesadilla called “chavindeca”).

There is a lot of regional variation to specific recipes throughout the Southwest.

Variations
Quesadillas have been adapted to many different styles. In the United States, many restaurants serve them as appetizers, after adding their own twist. Some variations use goat cheese, black beans, spinach, zucchini, or tofu.

Even dessert quesadillas are made, using ingredients such as chocolate, butterscotch, caramel and different fruits.

Slow-Cooker “Corned Beef” and Cabbage
This warming slow-cooker stew has all the flavors of corned beef and cabbage but with much less sodium, plus it’s ready in half the time of traditional corned beef and cabbage.

Vegetarian Pressed Italian Sandwich
Typically, pressed sandwiches are a celebration of many meats. Here, we’ve opted for grilled eggplant slices, artichokes and arugula to make a satisfying vegetarian version. Giardiniera, a type of Italian relish typically made from bell peppers, celery, carrots, cauliflower, olives, vinegar and spices, perks up the flavors of any sandwich. You can use convenient prepared giardiniera or homemade. Choose a hot or mild version, depending on your preference for heat………

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Don’t add the herbs yet………

When making homemade Pizza keep this in mind – Once the pizza comes out of the oven toss on some fresh herbs, fresh tomatoes, parmesan or cracked peppers. The residual heat will partially cook fresh herbs, bringing their flavor to the pizza without losing some of their more delicate flavors and aromas.
