Today’s Menu: Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Green Beans

 

 

 


This morning for Breakfast I had a Poached egg, 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Links, toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit warmer out today and less windy, high of 57 degrees. Did a few things around the house then after Lunch went outside and got a few things out of storage from the shed. Pulled out some of the outdoor chairs and table and cleaned them up and also repaired a couple of the chairs. Back inside finished some laundry up for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Green Beans.

 

 

It’s very seldom that I have Beef but when I was at Walmart the other day this just looked good and I had not had this in quite some time, a package of Hormel Slow Simmered Beef Roast Au Jus. And made into a an Open Face Roast Beef sounded real good! It comes packaged in a sealed microwave container and easy to prepare. Start by removing it from the outer sleeve and place the tray in microwave, do not pierce or vent film. Heat on high for 4 minutes or until hot. the self-venting film expands as it heats, forming a bubble to lock in flavor and juiciness. Let it stand for 2 minutes. Peel back and serve. Can’t get much easier and it’s really delicious. Plenty of Beef with excellent flavor. All I added was a bit Sea Salt to it. I lightly toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and served the Beef on top of the Toast. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Mushroom Gravy that I topped it with.

 

 

 

For a side I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Topped them with some of the Mushroom Gravy.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I could have Beans every meal, love them! For Dessert later tonight I’ll be having a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread

 

 

 
I had this for Breakfast yesterday and enjoyed it so much I’m having it again! I Scrambled 2 Eggs and toasted 2 Slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cooler outside today, high of 41 and windy. It was house cleaning day today, inside and outside. After cleaning inside I went outside and trimmed the vines along the driveway. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway off. Back inside I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Had everything done and went to Walmart, needed some Bigelow Green Tea and few other things. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I reheated the Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

 

I’m reheating the leftover Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Lasagna Complete Meal Kit. As it says, its a Complete Meal Kit. All I added was a 1/2 cup of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, and some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. To prepare it is real easy and reheating it even easier. Below is yesterday’s post on how to prepare it. Enjoy!

 

 

To prepare it you can bake it in the oven or cook it in a skillet on the stove top. I’m baking mine. Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F. Stir together both cans of sauce and 1/2 cup water in 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Stir in the pasta until well coated. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, until pasta is tender. Carefully uncover. Stir until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes; sauce will thicken. Ready to serve!

 

 

 

 

Came out hot and delicious. Nothing fancy, just good and hearty Dinner. I also reheated the Pillsbury French Bread, perfect with Pasta Dishes. Another great item to have in the pantry! For Dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

A roast with the bone in will cook faster than a boneless roast – the bone carries the heat to the inside of the roast quicker.

For Breakfast on this second day of Spring I Scrambled 2 Eggs and toasted 2 Slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy out today and it hit about 60 degrees. After Lunch I went over to see Dad and took him a big bowl of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili I made yesterday. We signed the Release papers today. He comes home Saturday Morning. I just hope he remains strong enough to remain here. Back home for Dinner tonight its Baked Lasagna and Baked French Bread.

 

 

 


I’m trying the Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Lasagna Complete Meal Kit. I have Banquet Pizza Pasta quite often, so I thought I would give this one a try. As it says, it’s a Complete Meal Kit. All I added was a 1/2 cup of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, and some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. To prepare it is real easy.
