Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 89 degrees, partly cloudy, and less humid outside today. After Breakfast I got my Ribs in the Crock Pot and got them going. Got the cart out later and did some yard work. I’ve been working on the back yard flower bed. I tilled the dirt and added some fresh soil. Put down some weed prevention also on it. Hopefully next year I’m going to add some plants and put down some dark wood chips. Tonight its Mom’s favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

Mom loves Ribs so I always try to have them from time to time for her. I purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday evening and couldn’t wait to have them! Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Half and Half Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Today’s Menu: Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 85 degrees outside. After Lunch a High School friend of mine came over and he helped me do some work on my Hoveround. I had to replace the whole joy stick component. And you might know we had to dis assemble half the chair to change it! It took most of the afternoon but we finally got changed. I’m so lucky to have a good friend like him! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

I had picked up a box of Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce at Meijer and had it in the freezer. I purchased the Large Size, about 2 1/2 servings. I’m also baking a few slices of the New York Bakery Texas Toast – Lite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it s very easy. It comes frozen and to prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Leave the film on tray, but do not vent. Place the tray on a baking sheet on the center rack of the oven. Cook 56 Minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Let stand 1 Minute and Dinner is ready. I really enjoy this Lasagna! Plenty of Sauce and Meat and the Noodles are good size and tender. One easy way to have a Lasagna Dinner! The Lasagna is 260 calories and 25 net carbs per serving.

 

 

 

 


I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast on this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Afterward I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Mostly sunny and 86 degrees out, low Humidity but high Pollen count out today. Mom went on to Church and I got a few things done around the house. Did a load of laundry and as that was finishing I went out and raked the front yard. Everything done just in time to settle back and watch a day of NFL Football! So for Dinner tonight I’m heating up the Leftover Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

This was too good from the night before to go to waste! So I’m having the Leftovers tonight for Dinner. Have a great evening every one! I left the orignal post from the night before for directions and ingredients.

For the Dirty Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice. The Mix includes a Long Grain Rice Mix with Vegetables and Spices. I added the Sausage. I always look forward to this meal!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I first prepared the Turkey Sausage. I used Johnsonville Turkey Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in a 3-quart saucepan. Removed them from the skillet to plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces. When done I drained what little fat from the skillet. Stirred in 2 1/2 cups of Water and the Rice Mix into the saucepan until it was well blended. Brought it to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and covered. Simmered for 25 minutes until the Rice was tender. With 5 minutes of cooking time left I added the Sausage back to the skillet, stirring well to mix with Rice.

 

Removed the sauce pan from the heat. Let it stand for 5 minutes, fluffed the Rice up and served! Delicious, the Sausage is so good and Rice and Mix all made some fantastic Dirty Rice and Sausage! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet 1/2 and 1/2 Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink. I love my Snapple!

Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam, love that stuff! Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 80 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom and then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Very high Pollen count out so I was inside most of the day. Got the leaf blower out early evening and cleaned off the deck and drive way areas. Spent the the afternoon watching College Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Ready for the skillet!

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

 

 

 

Golden Brown!

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

For a side I heated up a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I like using these because there’s one serving in each cup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Canned Salmon
Both canned and fresh fish are a good source of protein and other important nutrients, and one isn’t necessarily healthier than the other. … In fact, a USDA study found slightly higher levels of two omega-3s in canned pink and red salmon than it found in fresh. Canned salmon has other merits, too. Canned salmon is also rich in protein, vitamin D, calcium (from the bones) and healthy omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats are heart healthy fats. They also promote healthy brain development in babies.

Today’s Menu: Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

For Breakfast on this morning I Fried 3 Fresh Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, as always! Mostly sunny and a high of 93 degrees. But with the high humidity the heat index makes it feel like 98-100 degrees. I got some yard work done early before it was too hot. Went to Kroger for Mom later to pick up a prescription. So for Dinner tonight I’m preparing Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Mettwursts

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, Scrambled 2 Eggs, fried 2 Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy, 95 degrees and humid out there today. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Later took Mom’s car over and had it washed and I vacuumed the insides. Then back home cleaned the inside of the windows and dash. Looks pretty good! Too hot and humid to be outside too long. For Dinner I prepared a couple of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Mettwursts for Dinner tonight.

 

 

 


I had purchased a couple of packages of the Bluegrass Lean Mettwurst while at Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday. I kept one package out and froze the other. I also bought a package of Blue Grass Brats for Mom.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I used a medium size skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added the Metts. I then added water to the pan, just enough water to cover about a 1/4 of Metts. Turned the heat on medium and covered the pan. I turned the Metts frequently to get a nice even cook on them. When the water had boiled down I cooked them an extra 3 minutes to brown them. They turned out fantastic, nice and meaty! Plus being the Bluegrass Lean type , just 1/2 the calories of other Metts. I served them on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I also had made some Italian Pasta Salad the other day, so I had a small bowl of that. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. After Breakfast I went with Mom to Jungle Jim’s International Market in near by Fairfield, Ohio. Love shopping there. The biggest grocery store around! Picked some Boar’s Head Cold Cuts, Snapple, Half Runner Green Beans, 2 small Lobster Tails, and a Haddock Fillet. Too hot and humid to do a lot outside today, stayed in with the A.C.! For Dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Haddock w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

Had not had Haddock in a while and it sounded good! I had purchased the Haddock from Jungle Jim’s earlier. I had already rinsed the fillets off in cold water and cut the fillet into 4 pieces. So to prepare them I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love this Haddock it cooks up so nice and easy and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.

 

 

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Buffalo Flat Iron Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Baked Potato, and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Flat Iron Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Baked Potato, and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a couple of Scrambled Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 94 degrees, and very humid outside today. Summer has returned! Not a lot going on. Caught up on some little jobs around and outside the house. Too hot and humid to do a lot outside. For Dinner tonight, Buffalo Flat Iron Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Baked Potato, and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I was ready for a Steak tonight! I had a Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 oz. Flat Iron Steak in the freezer, I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’m preparing it using a Cast Iron Skillet, my favorite way to prepare these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks! I love the Cast Irons, from the stove straight into the oven! I love these Flat Iron Steaks, as I do all of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products. These are hand cut with no fat and so easy to prepare. I’ll need Extra Light Olive Oil, Dried Thyme, and McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I first rubbed the Steak with Olive Oil and then Seasoned it with the Thyme, Sea Salt, and Peppercorn Medley. I then cut the Steak in half, 1/2 for Dinner and the other 1/2 for Lunch tomorrow.

 

 

It’s a beautiful, lean, cut of Buffalo. I started by rubbing it with a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoning it with Dried Rosemary, Dried Thyme, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I pan fried it in a Cast Iron Skillet on medium high heat for about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Came out a perfect medium rare, nice outside char with a moist and juicy pink center!This was an awesome tasting Steak! A huge difference between the Beef Flat iron Steaks and Buffalo Flat Iron Steaks is how much more tender the Buffalo is. At times Flat Iron Beef can be tough, not the Wild Idea Buffalo Flat Irons! Served it with Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. I also had a couple of slices of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread that was leftover. For Dessert/Snack a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo – FLAT-IRON STEAK 8 OZ.

We carefully fillet our flat irons from the upper shoulder blade of the primal chuck. The flat iron has recently become a favorite on restaurant menus due to its high quality and flavor. The flat iron steak is what many chefs consider a best-kept secret of steak cuts. 8 oz.

Today’s Menu: Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Breakfast sandwich. I heated up a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty. As that was heating I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. I took the Patty put it between the Muffin halves and topped the Patty with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Love a good Breakfast Sandwich to start the day. Not bad out today, sunny and 85 degrees out today. I had to stay around the house to wait for the Carpet Installer to show up. They had to put in a new brass strip where the carpet and wood flooring butted together. They didn’t have one when they installed the new carpet. After Lunch I got the cart out of shed took a spin around the neighborhood, just out enjoying the day! For Dinner tonight its a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip.

 

 

 

I had purchased some of the Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef from Kroger the other day and it was a beautiful cooked medium rare and too good too sit in the fridge any longer! So for my Sandwich I’ll be using the Boar’s Head Roast Beef, a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and served on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Now this is a Sandwich! I Can’t even describe how delicious the Boar’s Head Rare Roast Beef and Cheese is. It’s just so tender and flavorful. And of course Cheese, which makes anything better, with the Mayo and Mustard makes this the perfect Sandwich! To go with the Sandwich I’m having some Meijer Reduced Fat Potato Chips with some Lay’s Ranch Dip. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. After Breakfast started a couple of loads of laundry. Did some light house cleaning. Then outside for some yard work. I had everything gone and settled in the easy chair and spent the day watching NFL Football! Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

I used the always delicious Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I love these Smoked Sausages.

 

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Light.
