Today’s Menu: Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Garlic Bread Loaf

 

Just a Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 82 degrees, humid and mostly cloudy out today. I got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work. Our grass is all coming in where I had sown the grass seed. Had to work on the trim in the rear of the shed again. I think a groundhog is what is tearing it up. Just not much of an appetite tonight. So I prepared a light and easy to prepare Dinner. For Dinner tonight its Baked Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

 

For the Shrimp I prepared a box of SeaPak Jumbo Shrimp. I preheated the oven on 425°f. I then got a small baking sheet, covered with aluminum foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I arranged the frozen shrimp in a single layer on the baking sheet. Then baked at 425 degrees for 13-14 minutes turning over once after 6 minutes. They came out Golden Brown and were delicious. Hard to beat these always great tasting. I served them with a side of Heinz Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

 

 

To go with the Shrimp another easy thing but delicious to prepare, a loaf of New York Bakery Mamma Bella’s® Recipe Pre-Sliced Garlic Bread. To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 325F. Open both ends of bag for venting. Place the bread in bag on foil-lined baking sheet. Heat for 18 minutes, remove bread from bag and serve. So good! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. The day started off rainy but gradually stopped and we had of 75 degrees and partly cloudy out. After the rain stopped I went to Meijer, I needed a few items and one of my neighbors needed a few items. On the way back I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home I did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

To make this Delicious Mini Sub I’ll be using a Meijer Boneless Pork Tenderloin, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, and Perfection Mini Sub White Roll.
 

 

I had not had a Pork Tenderloin in a while so I purchased Pork Tenderloin from Meijer the other day, just over 1 1/2 lbs. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it, preheat the oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

 

This is the first time, and why I have no clue, that I sliced one for Sandwiches. Anyway I let the Pork rest for 5 minutes or so before slicing. I then sliced the Tenderloin into thin slices. After I finished slicing it I let it marinate in its own juices until ready to use. Wow, what a Pork Tenderloin! It was so tender and juicy with flavor that was incredible.

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries that I served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Breyer’s Vanilla Bean 90 Calorie Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Tenderloin….

Pork tenderloin is one of the leanest, most tender cuts of meat on the market, so it can also be a little spendy. Pork loin, on the other hand, can often be a bargain choice if you’re looking for a tender cut of meat that cooks well for a crowd. Pork tenderloin and other loin cuts are excellent sources of protein, thiamine, vitamin B6, phosphorus and niacin and good sources of potassium, riboflavin and zinc.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees, humid and mostly sunny out today. I had a very bad night as I struggled with Phantom Pains all last night until around 10:00 this morning. So all I wanted was peace and quiet and to get caught up on sleep. So that was my day! For Dinner tonight it’s a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip.

 

 

After a very restless and sleepless night I wanted something easy to prepare, and what can be easier than making a Sandwich and having some Potato Chips! I had purchased some of the Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef from Kroger. It was a beautiful cooked medium rare and too good to sit in the fridge for long! 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 Live Carb Smart Wheat 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 Mike Sell’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips with some Lay’s Ranch Dip. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef

Hand-trimmed and carefully seasoned with pepper, garlic, onion and a hint of lemon for tartness, this cut is then slow-roasted to tender perfection. Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roasted Beef packs classic meaty flavor in each rich and savory slice.

Today’s Menu: Boneless Pork Ribeye w/ Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees and humid outside today. We need rain bad here, everything drying up again! Not a lot going on today. I took an elderly neighbor to Kroger, he no longer has a drivers license. Back home took care of small jobs around the house. For Dinner tonight it’s a Boneless Pork Ribeye w/ Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I purchased a 2 Chop package of the AdapTable Pork Products on my last visit to Meijer. The Chophouse Seasoned Boneless Pork Ribeye, Seasoned with the Chophouse – Garlic, Onion and Bell Pepper. I’m so happy that Meijer started carrying the AdapTable Products!

 

I’ll be preparing them on the stove in a Cast Ron Skillet. To prepare them I heated one tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium-high. Cooked the Chops in a covered skillet for 8-9 minutes per side until product reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer. Removed them from heat, and let them rest for 3 minutes. And serve!

 

 

 

 

I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Salt Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

I also boiled a couple of Ears of the Sweet Corn I purchased at Jungle Jim’s last weekend. I had purchased 4 Ears of Yellow and White Sweetcorn. To prepare it I boiled the Ear of it until done. Then when ready to eat I sliced the Kernels of Corn off and served it like that. I also had a couple Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Take Care all!

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

 

For Breakfast morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green. It’s a little warmer out there today. It’s 91 degrees, sunny, and a bit more humid. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a few items and stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. I went back out to the ATM and then went and filled Mom’s car up with gas. Got the cart out and did some yard work and then rode around the neighborhood and enjoyed the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

My last visit to Meijer I picked up a Walleye Fillets that they had on sale. I kept a couple of the Fillets out and froze the other 2. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. Then I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

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 Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea this morning for Breakfast. 77 degrees, sunny and beautiful out today! Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. Then I did a load of laundry. After Lunch it was outside to do some work. Got the leaf blower, rake, and cart out of the shed. It’s a perfect day to be outdoors! I enjoy doing yard work, good exercise and you get to be outside. For Dinner tonight it’s Leftover Turkey Chili Macaroni. Another one of those delicious One Pot Meals that is too good to not use the Leftovers! I’ve left the original post from last night below for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I tried something new for Dinner tonight, Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper. Instead of using Ground Hamburger I chose to use Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Turkey has less Calories, Carbs, and Fat, healthier and more delicious. To go along with the Chili Macaroni I had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light.

 

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, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

As I started the Ground Turkey was finishing I got the Chili Macaroni ready to add to the Turkey. I started by adding 2 3/4 cups of Hot Water to the Turkey Skillet. Stirred the Water and Ground Turkey and added the Chili Macaroni Pasta Packet. Stirred it all together and increased the heat to medium high, heated until boiling. Covered and reduced the heat to simmer, cooking for 11 minutes. Stirred several times as it cooked. Removed the Skillet from the heat and took the lid off and let it cool for 3 minutes.

 

Fantastic Dish, it was Seasoned perfect, the Pasta was tender and the Ground Turkey and Black Beans were perfect with the Macaroni. Then I also had the slice of Buttered Bread. It made a really good Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyders Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Macaroni

 

To start this Thursday Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 75 degrees, sunny and a little humid out today. After Lunch I took my friend out to Ross, Ohio, to the Produce Stands.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

To start the morning off I had a Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees, mostly sunny and low humidity outside today. Went to Kroger for Mom, she wanted me to buy some items for baking for the upcoming Holidays. She was worried as scarce as some items can be at times she might not find them later. Back home just did a few things around the yard. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, one of our favorites! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

As I said I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack tonight a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Sunny and 84 degrees , with low humidity. Another beautiful day out there! Watered all my plants and lawn early.

For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food and Mom’s favorite, Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

So we love Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos! So Nachos it is tonight! To make them I’ll need: Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as a snack, they bake and hold their shape better than most chips. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, sliced up some Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. Put all that together and it’s nothing but good Nachos! I especially love the Jalapenos, nice mild heat!

 

To prepare I preheated the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I first opened up 2 cans of the Hormel Chili with Beans and heated them up in a saucepan, as it was heating I added about 6 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and mixed. After the Chili was ready I added 4 tablespoons of Chili to the baking dish, then I added my Scoops (Chips). I then added the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything with the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven for 10 minutes or until the Cheese has started to melt and everything is heated. We love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper.
