Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links

 

 

To start this Wednesday Morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, humid and 82 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Home Depot with gloves and a mask on. I guess we’ll have to get used to it for a while, as they say the masks are the new norm! Back home I did some yard work. For Dinner tonight, Breakfast! I’m having Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links. I love Biscuits and Gravy!

I love Gravy! To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! To prepare it I get a small sauce pan and give it a light spray of Pam non Stick Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. I add a 1 1/2 cups of Cold Water to the pan and heat it on high to rolling boil. As that is heating up I preheated the oven for the Pillsbury Biscuits and I mixed the Gravy. In a measuring cup I added a 1/2 cup of Cold Water and then added the Gravy Mix to the Water and stirred until it smooth. When the Water was boiling I added the Gravy Mix. Turned down the heat a notch or two and started stirring the Mix and Water. Continued stirring until it started to thicken. Removed it from the heat and continued to stir it for about 30 seconds. I put the lid on the sauce pan and set it aside until I was ready to use it.

Time to bake the Pillsbury Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits! Took a small baking pan and sprayed a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray on it. Added the Biscuits and popped the pan in the oven. I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

So as the Biscuits were baking I fried my Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Original Breakfast Sausage. I came across a package of these in the freezer. I laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Breakfast Links that Johnsonville has come out with! To prepare them I coated a skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heat the skillet to medium-low. Added the Sausage and cooked for 11 minutes, turning often, until the Sausage was browned. I love these Sausages! They cook up perfect and are delicious.

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good. Breakfast for Dinner is fantastic! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Mini Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny, humid, passing thunderstorms and 87 degrees out. Our weather seems to be in a holding pattern. Beats cold weather though! Allergies were a huge problem today, bad headache most of the day. Nothing sounded good for Dinner so I went to a Classic Dish, Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 

I wanted something light tonight so what better than Creamy Tomato Soup with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I heated up a can of Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup. My favorite Tomato Soup by far. I’ve been using for quite some time now. So creamy with a fantastic flavor and it’s 110 calories and 19 carbs. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan and heat on medium, stirring often, until heated. And it’s ready to go and so good!

 

Then for my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. For Dessert later a Jello Dark Cherry Sugar Free Jello.

Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A repeat of weather outside, 88 degrees, humid and rain showers. I want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I had purchased the Tilapia at Kroger and had them in the freezer. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillets down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and blackened flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. Served it on a Kroger Whole Wheat Mini Sub Bun.

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a SO Delicious Dairy Free Minis Vanilla Sandwich, I haven’t had these in a while!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tilapia……………
Tilapia is a pretty impressive source of protein. In 3.5 ounces (100 grams), it packs 26 grams of protein and only 128 calories (3). Even more impressive is the amount of vitamins and minerals in this fish. Tilapia is rich in niacin, vitamin B12, phosphorus, selenium and potassium.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning

This spicy seasoning blend is rubbed on the outside of fish (or chicken, steak or other meats) for blackening. Also great as a seasoning rub for the grill or broiler.
Ingredients:
SALT, PAPRIKA, CAYENNE PEPPER, BLACK PEPPER, WHITE PEPPER, CHILI POWDER, MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE, ONION, GARLIC, SPICES.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries

 

 

To start the day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees, humid and thunderstorms late afternoon. The humidity was bad out there today! After Lunch me and Mom went to the Cemetery and placed flowers on Dad’s, Brother, Grandparents, Uncle, and Aunt graves. Always a sad time. Really miss them all. It’s just too humid to be outside much. For Dinner tonight Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries.

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! I had the Burger in the freezer so I laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. Used a Paper Towel and rubbed it in some Extra Light Olive Oil. Then rubbed the Grill Grate down with it. Then fired up the Grill! Seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. With the Grill heated I started grilling. I grilled the Buffalo Burger and Brat and Mett for Mom. I grilled the Burger about 3 minutes and flipped it over. After 2 minutes I added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar and cooked it another 1 minute and done! Served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger! Plus that added flavor by grilling it. Mom’s Grilled Brats turned out great also!


To go with my Burger I 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 bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

Today’s Menu: Domino Pizza Night

 

 

 

To start my morning off I made a Fried Egg Sandwich. Cracked a couple of Eggs and fried it till the bottom browns and flip it. I then added my slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese on top of it. As the Eggs were cooking I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, served the Eggs on the toast. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 86 degrees out to today. Got the cart out of the shed after Lunch and did a few things around the house and yard. Mom wanted Pizza tonight! So the Kitchen is closed and Domino delivered us a Pizza!

 

So what Mom wants, Mom gets! So I ordered our favorite Pizza, Domino Pizza. I ordered Mom’s favorite, Domino’s Hand Tossed Pizza Large with Cheese, Sauce, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Black Olives, Green Olives. As always the Pizza arrived on time, hot and delicious! I had a Coke Zero to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. The Kitchen will reopen tomorrow. Take care all and have a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!

Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread!

Today’s Menu: Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 74 degrees outside today, 80 degree weather and dry on the way! I had to stick close to the phone and house. We are having trouble with our phone and cable TV and I had to wait around for the repairman to call and arrive. It was finally dry enough for them to mow our grass, and it needs it! It’s been so wet out that you couldn’t mow it. Did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Leftover Chicken and Dumplings! No way these leftovers were going to go to waste! Mom makes the best Chicken and Dumplings there is! I have many an old room mate through the years that will back that up. I left the original post from yesterday for recipe and intsruction. Take care all!

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made the Cornbread. I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat everymeal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Sprite Zero to drink.

Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers on and off and 64 degrees outside. I got out my mask and gloves and headed off to Home Depot. I was going to buy a battery weed trimmer but they were already sold out. I’ll try again some time. Did a few things around the house. Anyway a real Dinner treat tonight!

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Lite Toast

 

 

For Breakfast I had Poached Egg that I served on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers early, not quite as heavy as the last 2 days. We ended up getting just over 4 inches of rain the last 2 days. High of 60 degrees and windy also. I did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Did a few small jobs around the house, not much going on. The Ohio Gov. lifted the Stay at Home orders. Now it’s just a a Recommendation to stay in. We have to wear a face mask to go to any stores or such. Plus there seems to be a bit more selections in the grocery stores now. For dinner tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Lite Toast.

 

I’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 5 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

 

For another side we had a Salad. I used a bag of Dole Greener Selections Salad Mix. For the Dressing I used Kraft Classic Catalina Lite Dressing. I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Waffle Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper To drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak

Famous for their flavor, these juicy steaks are perfect for the grill. The steaks are cut from the middle and upper part of the primal sirloin and their smaller size makes a great meal for one. 5 oz.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain and more rain out again, a high of 64 degrees. We had just over an inch of rain yesterday and another 1 1/2 inch today. There’s a lot local flooding all through our area. There are having to evacuate businesses here in West Chester, bringing people out by boat. I’ve never seen it rain so hard for so long! It was raining so hard this morning for about 5 hours that you could hardly see the other side of the street. So more things are being opened up again here in Ohio. They are asking no matter where we go to always be wearing a mask. Also for seniors to remain indoors for a bit longer. We sure hope it gets back to normal very soon! For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys.

 

We love our Cheese Coneys around here! Living here all my life here in the Cincinnati area you are raised on Cheese Coneys and Chili! I used Ball Park Smoked White Meat Turkey Franks, an excellent Turkey Frank! I boiled them, it took about 5 minutes and they were ready, plump, and delicious.

 

 

I heated a can of Skyline Chili with Beans for my topping. We prefer the Chili with Beans over the Chili with no Beans. It just gives the Coneys even more flavor with the added Beans! I served everything on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Buns. Put the Frank in the Bun then topped it with French’s Yellow Mustard, the Chili, and Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese. Had a small side of some Skyline Oyster Crackers with a few drops of Frank’s Hot Sauce on them, which is a common way to have them here in the Cincinnati area. We love our Chili, Chili Dogs, Chili Spaghetti, and Hot Sauce here in the Cincinnati area. For Dessert later I had a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.
