Today’s Menu: Buffalo Strips w/ Mushrooms, Potato Pancakes and Sugar Snap Peas

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Only 49 degrees and cloudy out today, a good day to stay in. And I did after I picked up a grocery order from Kroger. With the increase of the China Flu I thought I would start to pick my groceries up. I just order online and schedule a time to pick them up. Did a load of laundry and a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Strips w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Potato Pancakes and Sugar Snap Peas.

 

To prepare them; I first Rinsed the Wild Idea Bison Steak Strips and pat them dry. I then added a light amount of Extra Light Olive Oil to them, making sure the Strips were completely covered on all sides. Then I seasoned them with Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt. The Omnivore Salt is a blend of Natural Sea Salt and Organic Spices. Then I left the Strips rest. Next I got a Cast Iron Skillet and added 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on Medium High Heat.

 

Over Medium High heat, I cooked the Bison Strips for about 4 minutes, tossing to turn occasionally. I removed the Strips from the skillet into a bowl. I turned the Heat to Medium and then using the same Skillet I Sauteed some Mushrooms. I seasoned those with Ground Roast Cumin, Dried Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Turning and tossing the Mushrooms often and for about 4 minutes. I removed them from the Skillet into a bowl. I used the same Skillet and Sauteed the Mushrooms.

 

For one side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family love’s these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers.

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Only a high of 47 degrees today, big change! After my Tea I headed out to Meijer. First time in a long time that they had a lot of items that had been out of stock of back on the shelves! They even had Disinfectant Spray. Very good Beef, Chicken, Pork, and Seafood selections also. Back home did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans. I have left the original post from last night for the recipe and directions. Take Care Al!

 

We had these about a week ago but Mom loves them! So if this is what she wants, that’s what I’m fixing! When making my Turkey Tacos I always use my favorite, Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie –O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have a good selection of it. So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O, Bush’s Beans, and Mission Tacos together make one fine Taco!

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, and Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. These Tortilla are so good and taste so fresh. Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees with a couple of rain showers. Well in between the showers I raked the front yard again. I’m fighting a losing battle as neighbors on both sides of me never rake their yards1 So when the wind blows I get one theirs yards leaves. Some people take no pride in their yards or houses! For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans.

We had these about a week ago but Mom loves them! So if this is what she wants, that’s what I’m fixing! When making my Turkey Tacos I always use my favorite, Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb.

White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots

Today’s Menu: White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees and partly cloudy today. More like a Spring Day instead of a Fall Day out there. Did a few light chores around the house and then headed outside to enjoy the beautiful Fall day. Got the cart out for most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots.

 

I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had a bag in the freezer. Sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I’ll be seasoning them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix. First Salted them and then put the Fillets in a plastic bag and added the Breading. Shook the bag until the Fillets were covered.

 

Then added a few of them to the preheated skillet. I fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out a golden brown! The Perch was delicious, just love fresh water fish as I do all Fish. Meijer is about the only store that carries the White Perch and they also will have Yellow Lake Perch from time to time.

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Tater Tots as I was cooking the Fish. Just baked at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good way to start the day off. Cloudy, windy, and a high of 72 degrees. I had a headache most of the day. Rested a lot. For Dinner tonight Subway Black Forest Ham and Turkey Sub and a Subway Club Subway Club.

 

Just didn’t feel like cooking tonight and I hadn’t had Subway in a while so it just sounded good for dinner!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still raining early this morning and stopped about 10:00 this morning. Cloudy and a high of 60 degrees out. After Lunch I spent most of the day helping Mom clean out her walk in closet. We pitched a lot of stuff. Later I took some clothes she no longer wanted to the Good Will Store. So for Dinner tonight I reheat the Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo leftover from last night’s Dinner. I never let these leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from last night for the recipe description and recipe. Enjoy and Stay Safe!

 

Always one of my favorite meals tonight, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too! Then for Dessert later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Baked Ham and Swiss Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 61 degrees and cloudy, and rain out today. Did laundry after Breakfast. Then cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then wiped down all the Kitchen Counters and the microwave. All work done! Sat back and caught up on some shows I had recorded and some Cooking Magazines I hadn’t read. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Ham and Swiss Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

A Baked Ham and Swiss Sub sounded good on this rainy day! So for my Sub I’ll need; Perfection Mini Sub Buns, Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, 2 Slices Kroger Brand Swiss Cheese, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, Kraft Light Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Kraft Fat Free Zesty Italian Dressing.

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on 400 degrees. To make my Sub I took the bottom half of the Bun and added the Kraft Mayo, next I added the Ham, topped that with the 2 slices of Swiss Cheese, And topped it with the top half of the Bun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then laid the Sub on a small baking sheet and topped the Sub with the Kraft Italian Dressing. And then it baked it for about 12 minutes. Took it out and the Sub was a light golden brown and the Cheese was melted. Love these Baked Ham and Swiss Subs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Hoagie I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 39 degrees out this morning, a bit chilly out there! We had a high 58 degrees and sunny, beautiful Fall day! So after Tea I headed out to Meijer. With this Virus starting to get worse I thought I would go to Meijer and get a few stock items like Canned Goods, Frozen Items, Cleaning Supplies and Paper Products. Meijer was packed this morning, I guess everyone had the same Idea. Stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home Me and Mom both went to Walgreen’s and got our first Flu Shots! First one me or Mom had ever gotten. Love our local Walgreen’s, so friendly and helpful! Back home raked the front and side lawns. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet sprayed it the Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 14 minutes flipping it several times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo, you have to try it! I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise on the last Turkey Burger and loved it! It’s nice and Creamy with excellent flavor and a nice little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. 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 Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 62 degrees and cloudy out today, with rain showers moving in late afternoon. I went out to get the morning papers and it was your typical Autumn Morning out there. The East skies were orange, yellow, and blue then to the West and North the skies were grey and black. Bit of breeze that was rustling the leaves, and there is a ton of leaves on the ground. Fall has set in here in Ohio! After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then later I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuum. Done for the day. For Dinner tonight I got the last 2 containers of the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili out of the freezer and heated that up. So it’s 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes. I’ve left a previous post for the ingredients and directions. I’ll be making a new Batch soon! I also made some Johnny Cakes to go with the Chili Take care all!

 

I had not made my Chili in a while, and it was long over due! To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey, 2 – 1lb. packages. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans),4 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 tsp Ground Anchio Chile Pepper, 2 tsp Ground Paprika, 1 Tbs. Ground Chile Seasoning, 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 tbsp of Cilantro Leaves and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Grated Smoked Gouda Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

To prepare Johnny Cakes all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your 3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 004ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. To serve I placed mine on a plate and topped it with my 3 Bean Chili and Shredded Cheese. And now it’s Comfort Food Heaven! Chili and Cornbread are meant to be together! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
