Today’s Menu: Turkey and Ham, w/ all the Trimmings

 

 

thanksgiving-day-dinner-2016-011
I wish you all a “Happy Thanksgiving” today! To start my morning off I fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a cloudy Thanksgiving Day around here but had a high in the 50’s. Spent most of the morning prepping dishes to prepare for our Thanksgiving Day Feast. For Dinner we are having Turkey and Ham with all the trimmings.

 

 

thanksgiving-day-dinner-2016-004
For the Turkey we are using a Jennie – O Oven Ready Boneless Turkey Breast. I’m saving the 13 lb. Turkey Jennie – O recently sent me for Christmas. With just Mom and Dad and myself the smaller Turkey Breast will be plenty along with a Ham we purchased. For side Dishes we’ll be having; Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, homemade Dressing, my Mom’s World Famous Deviled Eggs, and I baked some Rolls for Mom and Dad. Along with the Turkey Breast I purchased a small Cumberland Gap Semi Boneless Ham.

 

 

thanksgiving-day-dinner-2016-008
As I said we are using the Jennie – O Oven Ready Skinless Boneless Turkey Breast. Such an easy way to have a moist and fantastic tasting Turkey, along with very little clean-up! Comes in a Jennie O Turkey Breast Oven Ready Bag, that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 165 degrees. It also now has a pop up inserted in the breast that pops up when done. The Turkey comes out moist, juicy and delicious, and browns up beautifully! Cooking for just myself and my parents, it’s just the right size (2-3 lbs.). Enough leftover for some great Turkey Leftover Recipes, which I can’t wait to try!

 

thanksgiving-day-dinner-2016-001
We baked the Cumberland Gap Ham last night so it was ready to go. Mom made the Deviled Eggs and Dressing and I made the rest of the side dishes and baked the Rolls. Everything turned out so good and the aroma coming from the kitchen was just incredible! Excellent Thanksgiving Day Dinner!

 

 

 

 

thanksgiving-day-dinner-2016-015

Mom also baked a Pumpkin Pie and my favorite an Apple Pie! The Apple Pie is made using Splenda. So my for my Dessert later tonight I’m having a slice of Apple Pie! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

From the EatingWell website its Healthy Summer Potluck Side Dishes and Desserts. What’s a entree without some delicious sides and a dessert! Now you can have your sides and desserts and eat healthy also. Recipes including; Deviled Eggs, Raspberry Bars, and Almond Butter-Quinoa Blondies. Find them all at the EatingWell website. http://www.eatingwell.com/

 

 

Healthy Summer Potluck Side Dishes and DessertsEatingWell2

Summer brings lots of invitations to potluck cookouts, so you’ll need an arsenal of side dishes and desserts to share. Whether your al fresco meal is around a grill, on a sandy beach or under a shady tree, our favorite summer potluck sides and desserts will round out your meal. So say “yes” to all those invitations, whip up some of these fresh, healthy recipes and enjoy the best of the outdoors!

 

 

EatingWell Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs are a perennial potluck favorite. Our recipe replaces some of the egg yolks with nonfat cottage cheese—keeping the filling velvety and rich while reducing some of the fat. No one will know the difference…..

 
Raspberry Bars
Tart raspberry filling is swirled into a low-fat cream filling in these beautiful bars. They’re a festive treat for a summer picnic or party……

 
Almond Butter-Quinoa Blondies
People likely won’t even notice that these delicately nutty, just a little chocolaty, blondies are gluten-free. They use quinoa flour, which you can find in well-stocked supermarkets and natural-foods stores, in place of all-purpose flour. To make your own quinoa flour, grind raw quinoa into a powder in a clean coffee grinder. (Adapted from Quinoa Revolution by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming.)…..

First a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It’s been a mostly cloudy day around here, high in the 50’s. The finger I had surgery on is looking good, go next week to have the stitches removed.

For dinner tonight it’s Thanksgiving Dinner!

 

 

Thanksgiving Day Dinner 003
We got the Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Whole Turkey out of the freezer and into the oven today! Jennie – O sent me this 13 lb. Bird about a month ago and we’ve been waiting to break it out! Jennie sends me one every year for being a member of their Switch Club, so a big thank you again to Jennie – O Turkey!

 

 
It couldn’t be any easier to prepare the Turkey. It goes straight from the freezer into the oven. It comes in a Oven Ready Bag. Preheat the oven on 375°F. Just remove it from the outer package, but leaving it in the cooking bag. Make a few of slits in the bag, place in the roasting pan, and your set. Then roast the Turkey until a meat thermometer reaches 165°F. in the breast and 180°F. in the thigh, about 4 hours. Let it rest out of the oven for 15 minutes and then let the feast begin! The Turkey, as always, came out mouth-watering delicious! Fantastic flavor, moist, juicy, and it browns up perfectly in the heating bag. So thank you agin to Jennie – O for our free Turkey! Below is the rest of our Thanksgiving Menu, my Mom went over board again but she loves making Thanksgiving dinner. I kept an eye on the Bird and helped and Mom out. Enjoy everyone!

One of America’s Favorites – Deviled Egg

A plate of deviled eggs

A plate of deviled eggs

Deviled eggs (US) or devilled eggs (UK) are hard-boiled eggs, shelled, cut in half, and filled with the hard-boiled egg’s yolk mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard, but many other variants exist internationally. Deviled eggs are usually served cold. They are served as a side dish, appetizer or a main course, and are a common holiday or party food.

 

 

The term “deviled”, in reference to food, was in use in the 18th century, with the first known print reference appearing in 1786. In the 19th century, it came to be used most often with spicy or zesty food, including eggs prepared with mustard, pepper or other ingredients stuffed in the yolk cavity.

In parts of the Southern and Midwestern United States, the terms “stuffed eggs”, “salad eggs”, “dressed eggs”, or “angel eggs” are also used, particularly when served in connection with church functions, avoiding the name “Devil.” The term “angel eggs” is also used in association with deviled eggs stuffed with “healthier” alternatives.

 

 

Cool hard-boiled eggs are peeled and halved lengthwise, and the yolks are removed. The yolks are then mashed and mixed with a variety of other ingredients, such as mayonnaise and mustard. Tartar sauce or Worcestershire sauce are also frequently used. Other common flavorings include: diced pickle or pickle relish, salt, ground black pepper, powdered cayenne pepper or chipotle chillies, turmeric, vinegar, green olives, pimentos, poppyseed, thyme, cilantro, minced onion, pickle brine, caviar, cream, capers, and sour cream. The yolk mixture is then scooped with a spoon and piped back into each egg “cup”. Old Bay, paprika, curry powder, cayenne, chives, and dill may then be sprinkled on top as a garnish. It may be further decorated with dollops of caviar, anchovy, bacon, shrimp or herring.

 

 

Contemporary versions of deviled eggs tend to include a wider range of seasonings and added foods, such as garlic, horseradish, wasabi, sliced jalapeños, cheese, chutney, capers, salsa, hot sauce, ham, mushrooms, spinach, sour cream, caviar, shrimp, smoked salmon or other seafood, and sardines.

 

Deviled egg plate

Deviled egg plate

The deviled egg can be seen in recipes as far back as ancient Rome, where they were traditionally served as a first course. It is still popular across the continent of Europe. In France it is called œuf mimosa; in Hungary, töltött tojás (“stuffed egg”) or kaszinótojás (“casino egg”); in Romania, ouă umplute (“stuffed eggs”); in the Netherlands gevuld ei (“stuffed egg”); in Sweden fyllda ägg (“stuffed eggs”); in Malta it is called bajd mimli (“stuffed eggs”). In many European countries, especially Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Germany, a variation is served known as “Russian eggs”. This consists of eggs cut in half, served with vegetable macédoine and garnished with mayonnaise, parsley and tomato. Contrary to what the name might suggest, the dish does not originate in Russia: its name derives from the fact that the eggs are served on a bed of macédoine, which is sometimes called Russian salad. In the Black Forest region of Germany, Russian eggs may be garnished with caviar. In Sweden, the deviled egg is a traditional dish on the Easter Smörgåsbord, where the yolk is mixed with caviar, cream or sour cream, optionally chopped red onion, and decorated with chopped chives or dill, perhaps with a piece of anchovy or pickled herring. Deviled eggs are a common dish in the United States. In the Midwestern and Southern U.S., they are commonly served as hors d’oeuvres before a full meal is served, often during the summer months. Deviled eggs are so popular in the United States that special carrying trays are sold for them. Prepared and packaged deviled eggs are now available in some U.S. supermarkets.

In French cuisine, the other ingredients are most likely to be pepper and parsley. In Hungarian cuisine the yolks are mashed and mixed with white bread soaked in milk, mustard and parsley, often served as an appetizer in mayonnaise or as a main course baked in the oven with Hungarian sour cream topping and served with French fries. Other common flavorings of the yolks in the German cuisine are anchovy, cheese and caper.

Christmas Dinner 2014 007

 

Christmas Dinner should always be special and ours was! Everything was so delicious and aromas throughout the house that just made your mouth water. For dinner it just myself and Mom and Dad. Some of our relation stopped over at various times during the day and evening. I prepared the meal along with Mom. And as usual she made enough for three families. For our Ham we used an Aldi Appleton Farms Half Ham. You can these Hams at Aldi Stores. These are the best tasting Hams we have ever come across. It’s our third year using them and they are just incredible! We had the Ham, Mashed Potatoes Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Beans, Deviled Eggs, Baked Rolls, Cranberry Sauce, Baked Beans, Pecan Pie, Chocolate Pie, need I say more! Enough for three families. Everything was so delicious. I’m keeping it short today, as we had visitors on and off throughout the day and night.

Christmas Dinner 2014 005

 

 

Well I hope your Christmas was a special one! Merry Christmas from my family to yours, and to all a good night!
