Today’s Menu: Roasted Chicken w/ Stuffing, Garlic and Herb Hash Browns, and Corn on the CobRoasted Chick Stuffing Hasf Brw 002

 

 

 

It was one of those nights and days, dealing with the painful Phantom Pains! Oh how I wish they would find a cure or the reasons these exist for amputees. But being an amputee I just have to deal with it but it’s so darn aggravating and painful. For dinner I went to the local Kroger and picked up a Savory Roasted Chicken. I prepared a Roasted Chicken w/ Stuffing, Garlic and Herb Hash Browns, and Corn on the Cob.

 

 

I had planned on Roasting a Chicken myself but with dealing with the Phantom Pains it was the easier, the better! t o prepare the Chicken I just reheated it in the oven on 325 degrees for 30 minutes. It’s hard to beat these for not only taste but convince also.

Roasted Chick Stuffing Hasf Brw 001

 

For side dishes I prepared a box of Stove Top Lower Sodium Chicken Stuffing Mix. Stove Top has several different kinds but the Chicken is my favorite. I never was a Stuffing fan until this past year, and now I love it. I also prepared some of Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns and boiled a couple of ears of Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. If you like Sweet Corn and never tried the Green Giant frozen Ears of Corn give them a try! Every bit as good as fresh and some of the sweeter Corn I’ve ever had. For dessert/snack tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn and a night of the new Survivor Show.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Chicken Thighs w/ Cut Green Beans, Mini Ears of Corn on the Cob, and Whole Grain BreadGrilled Chicken Thighs 004

 

 

Spent the morning working on and cleaning the grill again. Finally got it working again! It’s the 4th day of August and it was 60 degrees this morning and a high of 77 degrees, Incredible Weather! For dinner with the grill up and working I decided to grill some Chicken Thighs. I prepared Grilled Chicken Thighs w/ Cut Green Beans, Mini Ears of Corn on the Cob, and Sliced Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

I put the Thighs in a Hefty Zip Bag and seasoned the Chicken Thighs with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and Marinated them in JB‘s Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce in the fridge for a couple of hours. At grill time took them out of the bag and shook off the excess marinade. Grilled them for about 16 minutes, turning them frequently. I checked their temperature and it was at 165 and done. I had extra BBQ Sauce on the side for dipping. Chicken came out bursting with flavor and moist. Love that JB’s Fat Boy BBQ Sauce!

 

 

To go with the Chicken I heated up a can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans along with some boiled Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. If you’ve never tried the Green Giant Corn you need to! It’s frozen Mini Ears of sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! I also had a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Weight Watchers Ice Cream Sandwich.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Filet w/ Corn on the Cob and Baked PotatoBuffalo Teris Major Filet 004

 

 
Whew-whee it’s humid out! Really bad out. My parents went to a Church Picnic and it was outdoors at a local Park. They lasted about an hour before they packed up and came back home. Me I opted to stay in where the air conditioner was feeling real good! For dinner I prepared a Buffalo Terres Major Filet w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Boiled Corn on the Cob and a Baked Potato.

 
I used another of the Wild Idea Buffalo 8oz. Buffalo Terres Major Filets. Beyond any doubts one of the most tender cuts of any steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had. I didn’t even attempt to fire the grill up so I pan fried it in Canola Oil. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I fried it 4 minutes on one side and about 3 minutes on the other side, it gets done very quickly because it’s so lean. The Filet came out medium rare, moist and just full of flavor! I topped it with Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms.

 
For side dishes I prepared 2 Mini Ears of Green Giant Corn. I keep this in stock in my freezer now. Never goes bad, stores very easy, and prepares in 10 minutes. If you like Sweet Corn on the Cob you’ll have to try this out. I also had a Baked Potato that I topped with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice cream topped with Mango Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatloaf w/ Corn on the Cob and Mashed Potatoes

 

Bacon wrapped Turkey Meatloaf 002

 

 

 
A really perfect day out today! It’s about 77 degrees and sunny. Beautiful day but it was a very, very, long night. My parents had made some friends for dinner at a Ponderosa Steak House. they didn’t order from the menu instead chose the Buffet, BIG MISTAKE!! After coming home about an 1 hour or so they both became very sick, Mom worse than my Dad. Upset stomach, nausea and everything that goes with food poisoning. My Mom was so bad I called her family doctor on call service. He said the best cure is to let it run its course, which it eventually did. I won’t go in to detail but I was still doing laundry at 1:00 am. But both are fine now with no after effects. I’m not big on Buffets and that’s the main reason! For dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatloaf w/ Corn on the Cob and Mashed Potatoes.

 
I had prepared Turkey Meatloaf before but not wrapped with Bacon, Low Sodium Turkey Bacon. I had the idea off a cooking show. They said by adding the Bacon it gave your Meatloaf an even better taste. They had used Pork Bacon but I’m using Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon instead. To make the Meatloaf I’ll need the following; 2 Tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter, 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced, 1 1/4 lbs Jennie O Extra Lean Ground Turkey, 3-4 Slices of uncooked Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon, 1/2 Cup Progesso Italian Style Breadcrumbs, 1/4 Cup Egg Substitute (Egg Beaters), 1 1/4 Cups Hunt’s Catsup, 4 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce, 3 Tablespoons Heinz 57 Sauce, 2 Teaspoons Smoked Cumin, 2 Teaspoons Onion Powder, 2 Teaspoons Ground Thyme, 2 Teaspoons Parsley, 3/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then melt the butter in a skillet and add the Garlic in melted butter for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place the mixture in a large bowl to cool for 5 minutes. Combine turkey, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup of the catsup, 1 table spoon Worcestershire sauce, spices, and garlic mixture. Press meatloaf into an 8×4-inch loaf pan. Wrap 4 slices of Turkey Bacon over the top and down on to the sides of the meatloaf. Take the remaining catsup and add 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce and 3 Tablespoons Heinz 57 Sauce, and stir to well mixed. Add as a topping for the meatloaf. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes or until Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. The Turkey Meatloaf was delicious before but with the added Bacon it gave it that much more flavor! I’ll add Turkey Bacon to it from now on!

 
To go with the Meatloaf I prepared some more of the boiled Mini Corn Ears. I used Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. They come frozen and all you do is boil them in water for about 12 minutes. Their 50 calories and 9 calories per mini ear. These are actually better than a lot of the fresh Corn on the cob I’ve had, nice job Green Giant! I also prepared Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. You have to have Mashed Potatoes when you have Meatloaf, I think it’s an unwritten rule! One good comfort food dinner! For dessert later, just sticking with some fruit. A Banana and maybe a few slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Turkey Franks and Bratwurst w/ Boiled Corn on the Cob and Honey Smokehouse BBQ Chili Beans

 

 
Solved a neighborhood mystery last night around 8:00 pm. I was in the kitchen fixing a cup of Green Tea when something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye, a Doe Deer! We have a small strip of woods that runs parallel with the backs of all the homes along our street so apparently the Deer had been coming out and feasting on everyone’s gardens and flowers! Something had eaten my Mom’s flowers and a few of her cucumber plants that she had growing, and the neighbors had said something had been eating various plants and flowers of theirs. Mystery solved! As I watched her she headed straight for our next door neighbors petunias. As I opened the door she turned back into the woods. She was a good size Doe. That’s the first one spotted in our part of neighborhood. For dinner I was able to fire the grill up in between showers. I prepared Grilled Turkey Franks and Bratwurst w/ Boiled Corn on the Cob and Honey Smokehouse BBQ Chili Beans.

 

 
As usual I used Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, 45 calories and 5 carbs per Frank. Their Turkey, low cal, low carb, and taste Brats, deviled eggs, corn on the cob 002great! They grill up nice too. I also grilled up some Bratwurst, Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. Served them all on Healthy Life Whole Grain Buns, 70 calories and 18 carbs per bun.

 

 
I also boiled some Mini Corn Ears. I used Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. They come frozen and all you do is boil them in water for about 12 minutes. Their 50 calories and 9 calories per mini ear. My Mom made some Deviled Eggs, which are the best I ever had! Plus Mom wanted some BBQ Beans so I prepared some Honey Smokehouse BBQ Chili Beans. I used Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 teaspoon Gound Mustard, and a couple of pinches of Splenda Brown Sugar. Mix it all together and heat it in a medium sauce pan. We had all the ingredients for a picnic, in this case an indoor picnic as it started raining just as the Brats and Hot Dogs were ready. For dessert later tonight a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with a scoop of Breyer’s carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Blackened Tilapia w/ Grilled Corn on the Cob and Grilled Potatoes

 

 

It was a little taste of Summer around here as it was 89 degrees today! After a couple of mornings in the low 30’s, wild weather! Speaking of taste in about 2 weeks it will be time for the areas largest food festival, The Taste of Cincinnati, more updates on that as it gets closer. For dinner it was a grill fest; Grilled Blackened Tilapia w/ Grilled Corn on the Cob and Grilled Potatoes. As good as this sounds, it tasted even better!

 

Yesterday I received my new Fish Basket I had ordered off Amazon and couldn’t wait to try it!Went to Kroger early this morning and Grilled Blackened Tilapia 001bought some Tilapia Fillets, Red Potatoes, and Corn on the Cob and Grill Fest was on! Along with the Tilapia I’ll need a tablespoon or so of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter and Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. After firing the grill up on high I rinsed the Tilapia of and patted dry. Melted the 1 T butter in a microwave. About 15 seconds and brushed both sides of Tilapia with the melted butter. I coated both sides of the Tilapia with a generous amount of the rub. Then I got my Fish Basket out and sprayed it with Pam Grill Spray. Loaded the tilapia in the grill basket. If you’re using a griddle then add a tablespoon or so of vegetable oil to grill. Do not use olive oil since it smokes at high temperatures. Placed my Tilapia on preheated grill and closed the lid. Grilled for only 2 minutes and then flipped it and grilled another 2 minutes. Use a watch with a second-hand and do not over cook! The result some beautifully delicious Blackened Tilapia! You had the heat of the Blackened Seasoning and grilling it with the lid shut gave it a nice smoked taste also. It’s soooo good, you can have it with just the fillet or have a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich, either way your going to love it! This Blackened Tilapia would go great with some Black Beans and Rice or Cajun Rice.

 

To go with the Tilapia I grilled up some Grilled Potatoes and Grilled Corn on the Cob. For the Potatoes all I needed was the Red Potatoes, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Quarter the Potatoes and toss the potatoes with Olive Oil and add the Sea Salt, and pepper to your taste. I used a wire grilling basket for the Potatoes, I sprayed it with Pam with Olive Oil to prevent them from sticking. Then just roast them until golden brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Then you have some fine tatters.

 

For the Corn on the Cob, I roasted a couple of ears of it. To prep I needed 2 ears of Corn, 2 tablespoons of softened Butter ( Blue Bonnet Light Butter), and Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Peel back the corn husks and remove the silk. Place 1 tablespoon butter, salt and pepper on each piece of corn. Close husks. Wrap each ear of corn tightly in aluminum foil. Place on the prepared grill. Cook approximately 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until corn is tender. 2 delicious grilled side dishes along with Grilled Blackened Tilapia, love that grill! For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Double Chocolate Pudding.
