Today’s Menu: Meatballs in Marinara Sauce on Bun w/ Baked Fries


Meatball Sub Fries 005
A cool but sunny and beautiful Autumn Day out again. Got the 4 wheel mobility scooter out and helped with the yard work, raking leaves. Then took it out for a spin through the neighborhood and on down to the lake area. Then some College Football for the afternoon! For dinner, Meatballs in Marinara Sauce on Bun w/ Baked Fries.


A Meatball Sandwich on a cool Autumn Day just sounded right! I used Hormel Sandwich Makers Meatballs in Marinara Sauce. I came across this at Walmart yesterday and thought I would give it a try. It comes in a plastic microwavable container. To,prepare it just puncture the plastic film and microwave for 60 seconds. Let it cool for a minute or so and it’s ready! The Meatballs were good tasting and an excellent Marinara Sauce! There’s 2 servings per package, so I have my lunch for tomorrow. I served them on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hotdog Bun. Topped it with some Sargento Reduced fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. I also baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. For dessert/snack later some slices of Cracker Barrel 2% Sharp Cheddar on Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa

Wow I tried Newman’s Own Pineapple Salsa for the first time and I’m going to have to make room for another Salsa! My favorite is still Newman's Own Pineapple SalsaNewman’s Own Black Bean and Corn Salsa but the Pineapple is awfully close! It’s a completely different Salsa than the Black Bean and Corn. It’s got a little heat from the Jalapenos and then you have the sweetness from the Pineapple, it ends up a perfect match for a Salsa. This would go good over your Eggs at Breakfast or at dinner for a topping for your Baked Potato. I’ll be adding this to the Pantry Stock for sure.

Today’s Menu: Whole Grain Penne Pasta and Turkey Sausage w/ Mushrooms, Sockarooni Sauce, and Whole Grain BreadPenne whole grain pasta 002
Whole Grain Penne Pasta and Turkey Sausage tonight, healthy and a true comfort food! I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta. For the sauce I used Newman’s own Sockarooni Pasta Sauce and then for the Turkey Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Sausage. The sausage is 110 calories and 0 carbs.

I had precooked and sliced the Turkey Sausage earlier. I then boiled the pasta and while it was boiling I heated the pasta sauce and added the Turkey Sausage, that I had sliced up into bite size pieces and sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms. After boiling and draining the pasta I added the pasta back to pot and added the sauce and sausage to it and mixed until the pasta was well coated. I Seasoned the Pasta with McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, Parsley and Sea Salt. The Sockarooni is a Pasta Sauce made by Newman’s Own. It’s a fantastic thick sauce with great seasoning with Red and Green Bell Peppers and Mushrooms.I topped it with Kraft 2% Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Served it with slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later some Apple slices and a Mini Banana.
