Today’s Menu: Blackberry Glazed Roasted Applewood Smoke Flavor Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Turkey Stuffing

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared a package of Tennessee Pride Turkey Sausage and Biscuit. They come 2 to a package and are frozen. Just microwave the package for 50 seconds and done. they are 200 calories and 26 carbs for the 2 snack size sandwiches. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 58 degrees to start the morning off and had a high of 75 degrees! 2nd day in a row of Spring like weather temperatures. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry and then went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Afterward I went to pick up some Prescriptions at Kroger for Dad. Then on to the Post Office and Bank. Good to be out in this weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackberry Glazed Roasted Applewood Smoke Flavor Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Stove Top Stuffing.

 

I had purchased the Jennie – O Applewood Smoke Flavor Turkey Breast Tenderloin from Meijer and had it in the freezer. Sat it in fridge to thaw overnight. Meijer is the only store that carries this and most of the other Jennie – O Turkey Products. The Turkey Tenderloin comes pre-seasoned and is 100 calories, 4 carbs, and 99% fat free. Besides this beautiful Tenderloin all I’ll need to prepare it is some McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Blackberry Glaze, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon.

 

 

First I mixed my Blackberry Glaze and set it aside until ready to use. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post. To prepare the Tenderloin I’ll be baking it. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Next sprayed a shallow baking pan with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and add a tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil to it. Then place the Tenderloins in the baking pan. With about 10 minutes of cooking time left I Glazed on of the Tenderloins. Bake until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of the meat reaches 165°F, approximately 62 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover and let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.

 

 


Started slicing it and it’s so very tender and moist. It has a fantastic taste. The Applewood Smoke and combination of Spices it was marinated in was perfect! Good job Jennie- O. For the added Blackberry Glaze , it was perfect! It went with the Turkey perfectly.

 

 

 

 

To go with the Turkey Tenderloin I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also made a box of Kraft Stove Top Lower Sodium Chicken Stuffing. Mom loves Stuffing so I made some for her. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Beef Cubed Steak w/ Peppered White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Peppered White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. One delicious Breakfast!

 

 

 

Outside cloudy and a high of 50 degrees! After Breakfast went to Kroger for Mom and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Back home did a load of laundry and then after Lunch headed to the ATM at the Bank, got gas, and had the car a much needed wash. Huge line with people getting their car washed, took about 20 minutes to get through. For Dinner tonight I prepared Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Peppered White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans.

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a couple of packages of the Meijer Beef Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two. They are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Normally I use Buffalo but as far as I know no one makes Cubed Bison Steak, at least not yet!

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy Mix. Topped the Cubed Steak and Mashed Potatoes with it.

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

Then I heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cube Steak
Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Diced New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some more of the Turkey Spam. I lightly fried a couple of slices along with some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outside a lot colder, 19 degrees this morning and 36 degrees for a high with snow flurries and a mix of snow and rain later in the day. I drove to the Dayton, Ohio Airport to pick a friend of mine that was flying in a couple of days to see his parents. His Mom is in the Hospital with the flu and his Dad isn’t much better. The Flu has really hit this are hard. My family has been real lucky so far, none of us has had it. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Diced New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

I purchased the Yellow Lake Perch from Meijer. I rinsed the Fillets in cold water then patted them dry and put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and on into the freezer. Last night I laid the bag in the fridge to thaw overnight. I love using Lake Perch, fries up a beautiful golden brown and like most fresh water fish has a fantastic taste.

 

 

 

 

I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and rolled the fillets in my favorite Breading Mix, Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, 3 minutes per side. They came out with a golden brown crust and delicious! My Mom has always said that I get my love of Fish from my Great Grandfather. Mom said they always knew he was coming to visit because my Grandmother would always fry up a big batch of Fish and a cast iron skillet of Cornbread, and doesn’t get any better than that!

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I boiled them until heated and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Finally I baked a loaf of River Road BakeHouse Artisan Multigrain Bread. It’s a new Multigrain Loaf Bread that I’ve had a couple of times now and really like having. I purchase it at Meijer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

To start the day I prepared a Poached Egg that I served on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Cloudy with a high of 28 degrees and snow flurries. Finished cleaning the house after Lunch and cleaned the fridge. For dinner tonight I prepared Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Meijer the other day. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty. You can bake Catfish but for me you just can’t beat frying Catfish.

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, which I always use when making Hash Browns. Fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. Just love Potatoes with Fish. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. For Dessert later a Del Monte Sugar Free Diced Peach Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Ingredients:Simply Pot
Potatoes, Dextrose, Disodium Dihydrogen Pyrophosphate (Added to Maintain Color), Potassium Sorbate And Sodium Bisulfite (Added to Maintain Freshness).

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Prime Rib w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

 

 

I had to fast over night and skip Breakfast this morning. I had my 4 month checkup at the Family Doctor for my for my cholesterol, sugar and etc. Really great timing to have to have this done. Fasting on Christmas Night with everything to eat and snack on. This will be the last time I let them schedule this around a Holiday! Anyway I had to be at the Doctor at 8:15. It’s one COLD morning out there today! A low of 14 degrees and a high of only 24 along with one cold breeze. I guess our mild Winter is over. Back home gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then after Lunch I cleaned the house, vacuum and dusted. For Dinner tonight it’s Christmas Dinner leftovers! I reheated the Prime Rib w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread.

 

I reheated the Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes in the microwave. We had used Del Monte Cut Green Beans along with Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

 

 

Then to reheat the Prime Rib I heated the oven on 350 degrees. Sliced off my Prime Rib from the remaining Roast and put the slice into a small baking pan. Covered the pan with Foil and reheated it for about 15 minutes. It reheated perfectly, and tasted just as delicious! You got to leftovers especially when its Prime Ribs and Sides! As I said I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack tonight I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

Prime Rib

A slice of prime rib from a standing rib roast, topped (on the right side) with mushrooms

A standing rib roast, also known as prime rib, is a cut of beef from the primal rib, one of the nine primal cuts of beef. While the entire rib section comprises ribs six through 12, a standing rib roast may contain anywhere from two to seven ribs.

It is most often roasted “standing” on the rib bones so that the meat does not touch the pan. An alternative cut removes the top end of the ribs for easier carving.

Rib eye steaks are cut from a standing rib, boned with most of the fat and lesser muscles removed.

While often referred to as “prime rib”, the USDA does not require the cut to be derived from USDA Prime grade beef.

Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steak w/ Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

Today’s Menu: Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steak w/ Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a couple Eggo Nutrigrain Waffles and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 57 degrees and Sunny, not too bad for December 3rd! Feels more like an early Spring day than December. I went to Kroger after Breakfast and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad at McDonald’s. Not a whole going on today. Mom went to Church and I stayed home and kept an eye on Dad. Dad is going down hill fast, not sure how much longer he’s going to be around. The Dementia is getting worse every passing week. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steak w/ Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

 

I placed an order with Wild Idea Buffalo earlier this week and it was delivered on Friday afternoon and I’m having the Wild Idea Buffalo – FINE CUT SIRLOIN STEAK 6 OZ. for Dinner tonight. I absolutely love all the Wild Idea Buffalo Products, never have received a Steak that wasn’t delicious!

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1/2 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, cooked it 5 minutes on one side then flipped it over and cooked the other side for 4 minutes. It came out a beautiful medium rare. Nice crust on the outside and pink in the center. Rare to Medium Rare is the only way to have Buffalo Steaks as far as I’m concerned. The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender, juicy, and the best flavor of any Steak. I topped the Steak with a bit of A-1 Sauce Thick and Hearty.

 

I prepared some Bob Evan’s Oven Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I hadn’t had these in quite a while so I picked up a package while at Meijer.

Today’s Menu: Chopped Bison Sirloin Steak w/ Cut Green Beans, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it’s sunny and 61 degrees, not bad weather for a November 27th! After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer to do some grocery shopping and then swung by Kroger for a couple of items. Stopped by the ATM and got gas before heading home. Got the cart out of the shed after Lunch. Went around the outside of the house and gathered up some leaves. Then took the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway. Really a nice day out today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chopped Bison Sirloin Steak w/ Cut Green Beans, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast.

 

 

For Dinner tonight it’s one of my favorites, SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. I love this Chopped Steak. To start I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare it I’ll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, McCormick Crushed Rosemary, and McCormick Thyme Leaves (all seasoning to taste). I got the Cast Iron Skillet out to prepare it. I first sprayed it with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the pan was heated I added the Chopped Steak. I cooked each side 2 minutes.Then finished it in the oven, at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. It cooked up beautifully, perfect medium rare! Had a nice little char on the outside and moist and juicy inside. These are so tender you could slice them with a spoon and have an excellent taste to them.

 

For a side I heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I love all Beans but Green Beans are my favorite along with the Seasoned Pinto Beans.

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still having Sinus Headache problems. This Ohio weather is the worst for Sinuses and Allergies. So another day of taking it easy. I have to fast starting at 11:00 tonight. I have to be at the Hospital for my yearly scans for Melanoma Cancer. Even after all these years it still makes me nervous. I went through so much before becoming Cancer Free. I’ve been Cancer Free since June of 2004. So it’s been over 13 years but it still brings back a whole lot of bad memories. I’ll have the results back next week when I go to my Oncologist for my 6 month check up. Be glad to get this out of the way and things back to normal! For Dinner tonight it’s one of Mom and dad’s favorites Shrimp! I prepared Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

While at Kroger earlier I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

 

 

Poured about 1 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning!

 


A favorite I always pick up at Meijer are the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread. So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

Then I heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

McCormick Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix

Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix adds extra crunchiness to fried and baked foods. All ingredients have been specially selected to provide a superior coating that seals in natural juices for fish, seafood, poultry, meats and vegetables.

Ingredients
Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, And Folic Acid), Whey (Milk), Dextrose, And Soybean Oil.

Serving size
1/4 cup Mix

All You Need
1/2 cup Cracker Meal
1 lb. Fish or Seafood*
Water or Milk
Vegetable Oil
Directions
1. POUR Cracker Meal into shallow dish or large plastic bag. Moisten fish, cut into serving-size pieces, or seafood with water or milk. Shake off excess.
2. COAT fish, several pieces at a time, evenly with Cracker Meal. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard any remaining Cracker Meal. Fry as directed below. Serve with McCormick® Cocktail Sauce or Tartar Sauce. Use the entire package to coat 4 lbs. fish or seafood.

*Best with tilapia, trout, catfish, shrimp, or scallops. Also try with shucked oysters and clams, or soft-shell crabs (pierce several times before coating).

Pan Fry: Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a large skillet; heat to 350°F on medium heat. Fry fish, in batches, 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels.

Oven Fry: Cover bottom of shallow baking pan with melted butter. Arrange fish or seafood in a single layer in pan; turn to coat with butter. Bake in preheated 425ºF oven 10 to 20 minutes until golden brown around edges and fish flakes easily with a fork.

Flavorful Tips:
• For a thicker coating, dip fish in a mixture of 3 tbsp. milk and 2 beaten eggs before coating with Cracker Meal.
• Coat boneless skinless chicken breast halves or chicken parts as directed. Bake in 400ºF oven 20 to 30 minutes for chicken breast halves or 45 to 50 minutes for chicken parts.
• Use Cracker Meal instead of bread crumbs when making meat loaf or meat balls.
