Today’s Menu: Swiss and Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

Swiss and Chicken Sandwich w Baked Potato Puffs 007
I toasted a couple of Eggo’s and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Then outside did the daily sweeping of the wooden deck and driveway. This morning it was 54 degrees, a little taste of Fall there! Another nice day out. A little warmer but still low humidity but the warmer temps and high humidity are on the way back. Had everything done for the day so I got the cart out and rode around the neighborhood for a while. For Dinner tonight it’s a Swiss and Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Perdue Crispy Chicken Strips
It just felt like a Swiss/Chicken kind of day. I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips, which I just had the night before. To prepare it I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious!

I served them on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun and topped the Chicken with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese and some Hidden Valley Ranch/Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

 

 

Alexia Potato Puffs
Then for a side dish for my Sandwich I prepared some Alexia Potato Puffs. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. And we have another Keeper Potato Product! Browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. Perfect Potato side dish. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Beans

 

 

Crispy Chicken Strips w Mashed Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Bea 001
For Breakfast I baked a small can of Pillsbury Grand Biscuits. I made a Breakfast Sandwich out of them using Boar’s Head Deluxe Ham and a 1/2 slice of Kraft Sharp Cheddar. Very good, just wish there was some lower calorie and lower carb Biscuits out there. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry for Mom. Then some outside sprucing up! Got the trusty leaf blower out and cleaned out around the house. Got the cart out and went around the house spraying for weeds. Then repaired the Flag stand we have of the wooden deck, and got the American Flag out and displayed. Then I trimmed up the vines alongside the driveway. Nice day to be out, about 82 and sunny with lower humidity! For dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Beans.

For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Then for another side I prepared some Bush’s Reduced Sodium Vegetarian Baked Beans. I had tried these a while back and fell in love with the flavor and taste of the Vegetarian Beans! Only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving. To prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Beans! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Life Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Chicken w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese

 

 
For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and lightly buttered it with Chicken w Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese 011I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still raining here, and hard from time to time. It’s been raining so much the past few days we have local flooding in the area, nothing like what’s going on in Louisiana though. Did some cleaning around the house and stained some base board wood trim I had replaced a while back. Then did a little cleaning on the computer, deleting old files and running the virus scan. For dinner tonight I prepared Chicken w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese.

 

 
For the Chicken part of the dish I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts (2 of them). I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love the Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. Always taste fresh and Chicken w Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese 001nice size. Good for recipes like tonight’s or to serve by their self. To prepare; removed them from the package and seasoned them with Sea Salt and Litehouse Freeze Dried Poultry Herb Blend. Then I sprinkled them with a light dusting of Flour. Cooked them in a medium skillet that was sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Fried them on medium high heat for about 10 minutes, flipping it over 3 times. Removed from the heat and set aside. Before serving them with the Pasta I sliced the Chicken Breasts up.

 

 
I’ve prepared this a few times now, Pasta Roni Parmesan Cheese. A product of Rice – A – Roni, Pasta Roni is an Angel Hair Pasta in a Parmesan Sauce with other natural flavors. It comes with the Pasta and Parm Sauce and I Pulled Chicken w Pasta Roni - Parmesan Cheese 001added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some fresh Shaved Parmesan Cheese and the Chicken. Too good, this makes one delicious Chicken and Pasta Dish! For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Bar.
