Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green Beans

 

To start my day off I toasted a Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Black berry Jam. I also cooked up a couple of Buffalo Sausage Patties. I used Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage that I made into a couple of Sausage Patties. Then I also had a cup of Bigelow Deacf Green Tea. One Delicious way to start the day! 70 degrees, sunny and breezy outside today. We have had beautiful weather now for a couple of weeks but that is ending this weekend, they say. Wind Chills in the mid 30’s and possible snow flurries coming. Mpm’s Basal Skin Cancer has cleared up on her face. She goes back the Doctor later this month to see if they got it all this time. Hopefully they did! Anyway I went and raked the front and side yards. For Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

For the Chicken; I started at Noon today I grabbed a large Hefty Bag and added a 1/2 Pint of Buttermilk to the bag. I then added several shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and shook the bag to blend it together. I then add my Chicken Breasts and let it Marinate in the fridge until it was time to use. I used Katie’s Best Chicken.

 

 

To prepare the Thin Sliced Chicken Breast I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed with a coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then I started heating the skillet on medium heat. Next I added a tablespoon and a half of Olive Oil Cooking Oil. As the skillet heated I got the Chicken out of the fridge and removed it from the bag of Marinade, shaking off the excess. Then I grabbed a pie pan and added Flour to it and seasoned the Flour with Paprika. Took the Chicken Breast and rolled them in the Seasoned Flour until well covered.

 

Added the Chicken Breasts to the heated Skillet. I cooked the Chicken for 4 minutes and then flipped them over and cooked them for 4 more minutes, until golden brown and the meat thermometer read 165 degrees. The Chicken turned out so very good! Cooked up perfect, nice crust, and love the seasoning! Served it with Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce for dipping.

 

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

For another side I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! For Dessert/Snack later a 90 Calorie Breyer’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Cup.

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

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. After that I was off to Kroger for some early grocery shopping. Cool morning, 41 degrees. But the wind all day made it seem colder. Windy, Sunny and 60 degrees out for the day. They say Sunday only a high of 38 degrees! So later in the day I got the 74 wheel cart out and did some yard work. I hope all of you got out and voted today. I placed an absentee ballot in last week. So for Dinner tonight we had a 5oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast.

 

I prepared one of our favorite Steaks, a Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas 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 to 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 I 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!

 

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!

 

 

 

I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink. Stay Safe and Take Care all!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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: Leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a cool Fall morning out there, 44 degrees and windy. The rain stopped and the skies cleared. For the Afternoon it was sunny and 58 degrees. I took Mom to her Treatment Appointment then back home to a yard full of leaves. Tis the Fall Season! My Pepper Plants are still producing like crazy, everyone in the neighborhood has plenty of Green Bell Peppers. Cool Fall Day deserves Chili, 3 Bean Turkey Chili! That was my last container in the freezer. Which means I’ll be cooking up a new batch soon. Below I left the original post from last night for recipe directions and ingredients. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I love making a batch of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! 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, a tablespoon of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, 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, 2Tbsps Jif Smooth Peanut Butter, 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 Ground Turkey and Bean Mix last night and had it in the fridge. 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 aside and mixed my Beans. I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed.

 

This morning I turned the Slow Cooker on Low, sprayed the cooker liner with Pam Non Stick Spray, and added a 1/2 cup of Water to it. Let heat for about 20 minutes and I added everything to the Crock Pot. I’ll be cooking my Chili for 6 – 7 hours. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after a couple of hours 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 meals , can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day! The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. For Dessert latera Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Enjoying that Dinner…..

Slow Down! Take time out to enjoy eating, away from screens and other distractions, and eat with others when you can. You are less likely to overeat if you eat slowly and savour every mouthful. And remember small changes, big impact. Making small, gradual changes to your diet (rather than restrictive eating or crash diets) will help you adopt healthy eating habits for life.

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Summer Crisp Corn

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well it’s been a while since I’ve made a Dinner Post. But now I’m fully recovered from the fall I took. It took a while but I’m 100% again. I never want to go through that again! It’s a beautiful Fall day outside, we’ve had about beautiful Fall Days in a row! Sunny and 68 degrees out. Did some raking leaves and took care of remaining Pepper Plants. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Summer Crisp Corn.

 

I had this trio of Oysters, Cauliflower, and Corn a while back, it was so good that I’m having it again! As usual I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander, rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained Oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry for at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

Next, heat I heat some Cooking Olive Oil in a skillet. Then fry the Oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in the frying pan. Remove from the frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing.

 

Then for another side I opened a can of Del Monte Summer Crisp White Shoepeg Corn. It comes in a can, just heat it up in a small saucepan and serve. It’s tough finding this, Meijer finally had some on the shelf. Enjoyed this Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder Pretzels with a diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe:
Ingredients:

12 large-medium Oysters, shucked
1 tablespoon Flour
1 Eggs, beaten or 1/4 cup egg Beater’s
1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges, optional
Hot sauce, optional
Seafood Cocktail Sauce, optional

Preparation:

Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.

1 – Dip drained oysters in flour, then beaten eggs, shake off excess, and in panko crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: An easy way to coat the oysters with the panko crumbs is to place the crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

2 – Heat canola oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.

3 – Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately.

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’ve said it before but I’m almost back to 100%. Of all the Medications and feeling a lot better. Plus I’m back to my normal sleeping. I had been having trouble getting any sleep but all good now! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with the Fish I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good, it’s been a while since I’ve had any. Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. I also fixed Mom a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer White Pepper Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart Wheat Bread, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice start to the day! 84 degrees, mostly sunny, and no humidity. Not bad at all outside. Well it’s been a while since I’ve done a Dinner Post but finally after a lot of pain and 6 weeks of healing I’m almost at 100%. I’ve had a few setbacks along the way but I’m almost there! Word of warning bruised tail bone is No Fun! So I got out and did some yard work. My garden except for 3 plants are done for the year. Feels so good to be out and about pain free! For Dinner tonight it’s Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys.

 

So as usual I used Ball Park Smoked White Meat Turkey Franks, an excellent Turkey Frank! I boiled them, it took about 6 minutes and they were ready, plump, and delicious. Plus they are lower in calories and carbs than most other Hot Dogs, 45 calories and 5 carbs!

 

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 Live Carb Smart 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/ Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and mostly sunny outside. Feeling a bit better today. Each day it seems to heal a little better. Just over 4 weeks since I fell. I pulled up the last of the Tomato Plants. They produced all kinds of Tomatoes for us and the neighbors! Later I washed down the deck. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Dinner Rolls.

 

Chicken Strips always sound good for Dinner, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! I also had some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips
This fully cooked meal makes for a great ready-to-cook entrée that tastes as good as it is easy to make! Serve Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips with your favorite sauce or marinade to bring out their incredibly savory flavor.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 81 degrees, mostly sunny, and no humidity. Not bad at all outside. I had to have Mom over to Miracle Ear at 12:30 this afternoon. They cleaned it and made some minor adjustments. It’s been a slow process but I’m feeling a lot better, still a bit to go. Anyway I got a little yard work done today. For Dinner tonight it’s Turkey Frank Cincinnati Style Cheese Coneys.

We love our Chili, Chili Dogs, Chili Spaghetti, and Hot Sauce here in the Cincinnati area. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
