Many vegetables taste great with a dip or dressing. Try a low-fat salad dressing with raw broccoli, red and green peppers, celery sticks or cauliflower.

Today’s Menu: Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef!

 

French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links 001
It was French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links for my Breakfast this morning! For the French Toast I used Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, Ground Cinnamon, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Just mix the first three ingredients together, amount depends on how many slices you are making. Preheat a skillet, add butter, and preheat on medium. Dip your bread in the mixture and grill in the pan until done, flipping once. I love the combo of the Nutmeg and Cinnamon for his! Topped it with some Maple Groves Sugarless Maple Syrup. For the Links I used Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef! 003

After Breakfast Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market, which was fine by me! Love shopping there! The store is so huge and just packed with items from Ground Kangaroo to Quail Eggs. The best Deli, Produce, Meat, and Seafood Departments you can find. We ended up the rest of the morning there! Still fairly hot and humid but we have some days coming in the 70’s and no humidity! Can’t wait. So for Dinner tonight – Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef!

 

 

 

Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef! 002

So tonight I kept it light and simple. A Roast Beef Sandwich along with Chips and Dips sounded good for Dinner. To make the Sandwich I’ll be using; Boar’s Head Deluxe Low Sodium Oven Roasted Beef – Cap-Off Top Round, Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Roast Beef is always so fresh and the Beef is cooked to a perfect Rare and seasoned just right. I picked up the Boar’s Head Roast Beef while at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier today. The Deli Department carries every Boar’s Head Meat and Cheese that’s available. Love that store!

For the Chips I used Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and for the Dip I used Heluva Good Dip – Bacon Horseradish Dip. I don’t have a lot of Chips and Dips but when I do I try to have Reduced Chips and keep it light on the Dips. To drink I had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
