Mushroom and Asparagus Fettuccine
Mushrooms add flavor and a meaty texture to this vegetarian pasta dinner. Evaporated fat-free milk makes a rich sauce that’s lower in fat than the traditional recipe so you can feel good indulging in this creamy fettuccine recipe…………..

Pan-Seared Scallops with Tomato, Olives, and Fresh Basil
This Italian-inspired dish is full of flavor. Use whole grain or multigrain fettuccine to make it a healthier option………

Fettuccine Alfredo
Alfredo di Lello, the Roman restaurateur who created his signature sauce in the 1920s, might be startled to find this streamlined version that still tastes rich enough to satisfy those deep creamy-pasta cravings. The addition of zucchini boosts the nutritional profile. And when cut into thin strands, it can be twirled gracefully on a fork…………….

Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Breakfast Sandwich. I made it with al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty, a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Style Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and served on a toasted Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. Also made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s after I ate and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Somewhat cooler out today, high of 55 degrees and mostly cloudy. Did a few things around the yard and pulled the rest of the outdoor furniture out of the shed. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I had a package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans has become our favorite Dinner!

 

 

 

 

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

I grabbed a plate and put paper towel on it and removed the Chicken Thighs from the skillet to the lined plate. Paper towel absorbs any of the excess oil. Just love the crust on the Chicken provided by the Flour Coating! The Flour and cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet. So moist and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Potatoes were cooking I had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and had them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! Quite a Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Cheeseburger Macaroni Hamburger Helper

Hamburger Helper is a packaged food product from General Mills and is sold as a part of the Betty Crocker brand. It consists of boxed pasta bundled with packets of powdered sauce and seasonings.

The contents of each box are combined with browned ground beef, water, and occasionally milk to create a complete dish. There are also variations using other meats, such as tuna and chicken, named “Tuna Helper” and “Chicken Helper”. The product line also features products with other starches, such as rice or potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

The pasta brand “Hamburger Helper” was first introduced in 1971. In 2005, Food Network rated Hamburger Helper third on its list of “Top Five Fad Foods of 1970”.

Prepared beef Hamburger Helper

In 2013, the company shortened the brand’s name to “Helper”.

The Hamburger Helper mascot is the “Helping Hand” or “Lefty”: a four-fingered, left-hand white glove, with a face on it and red spherical nose. It often appears in the product’s television commercials and on their packaged products.

The basic and most popular version of Hamburger Helper is a box of dried pasta with seasoning, to be cooked with ground beef. Hamburger Helper offers a variety of flavors that include Lasagne, Cheeseburger Macaroni, Bacon Cheeseburger, Philly Cheesesteak, and others. There are also variations using other foods, such as tuna and chicken, named “Tuna Helper” and “Chicken Helper”.

 

* Tuna Helper was the second variety to appear on the market, in 1972.

Tuna Helper Creamy Pasta

* Fruit Helper was introduced in 1973. These were dessert products made with canned or fresh fruit. The Fruit Helper line has since been discontinued.

* Chicken Helper was first introduced in 1984 in response to the wide availability of inexpensive boneless and skinless chicken breasts.

* Asian Helper is a selection of four main Asian-American-style dishes, three made with chicken and one with beef.

* Whole Grain Helper options include Lemon & Herb Chicken, Honey Mustard Chicken, Cheeseburger Mac, and beef Stroganoff flavors made with whole-wheat pasta.

* Pork Helper was introduced in 2003. Varieties included pork fried rice and pork chops with stuffing. The product was discontinued shortly after its introduction.

* Hamburger Helper Microwave Singles were introduced in 2006. This product requires water and brief cooking in the microwave to produce a single serving portion of some of the most popular flavors. Chicken Helper flavors were added in 2007 despite the brand being discontinued shortly thereafter. It returned in 2013 as Chicken and Chili Helper.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Baked Fries

 

To start this day off I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Love these, so easy to prepare and only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving (1 cup). Well the heavy rain has finally stopped but we went fro the the 60’s to 23 degrees this morning. We had a high of 38 degrees and partly cloudy. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for myself and then by Kroger for Mom for a few items. Not much else going on today. My Sinus Headache had finally eased up also. For Dinner tonight its Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I love the Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips, it’s always a great go to when you want that easy to prepare meal that still delicious! To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the Chicken Strip . And Chicken is served! It’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Chicken I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
