Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Cut Italian Beans and Baked Fingerling Potatoes

 
For Breakfast I reheated a couple of Pork Tenderloin Medallions I had leftover from dinner the other night. With the Fried Walleye w Cut Italian Beans and Baked Fingerling Potatoes 002Pork I scrambled 1 medium size Egg and toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain Muffin. It was in the 40’s early this morning but the temps started dropping after that, snow flurries in the late afternoon. Had to head to Home Depot, needed to buy a new faucet for the kitchen sink. It started leaking around the base. Then later in the day our local repairman come by and installed it. Another minor job that’s tough to get to from a wheelchair unfortunately, just a little frustrating sometimes. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Walleye w/ Cut Italian Beans and Baked Fingerling Potatoes.

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Risotto and Cut Green Beans 001
While at Costco last week I just couldn’t pass up the beautiful Walleye Fillets they had. So I’m having one for dinner tonight. I rinsed them off in cold water and patted dry with paper towel. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till all fillets were well coated. I then fried them in Canola Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 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. Along with Crappie their my favorite Fresh Water Fish to eat.

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 002

For one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans every day and never get tired of having them.

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Asian Wings fingerling fries 001
Then for another side I prepared some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. I had the Italian Beans and Fingerling Potatoes just the other night, so good I paired it up again for tonight’s dinner! For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Chocolate Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Italian Beans

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w Roasted Fingerling Potatoes an 008
Not quite as cold this morning, sunny and about 27 degrees. For Breakfast I scrambled a couple of medium size Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. After Breakfast I helped Mom out with a couple of loads of laundry and did a little house work. About Noon or so a friend of mine came over and helped replace the hard drive on my computer. Bit of a pain, had to transfer all the files to the new hard drive and reinstall Windows. When I bought the computer it came with Windows 7 already installed so I had to purchase a Windows 7 disc to reinstall. If this happens again I think I’ll just buy a new computer! Anyway long afternoon, thankfully I had help. For dinner tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Italian Beans.

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions
While at Costco the other day I came across a package of Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions. it was a good size package with 24 slices. I kept 4 slices out and froze the remaining 20 pieces.

 

 

 

 
I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare them I used a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w Roasted Fingerling Potatoes an 003Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. I then lightly Salted the Pork with Sea Salt and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Parsley. Added the Pork to the skillet and cooked it for 2 minutes a side, just started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillets! I then backed them to a medium rare, 145 degrees in the center of the medallions using a meat thermometer. Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorites and this one ranked way up the chart! The Pork was so tender and flavorful. Seasoned just right and very moist. Can’t wait to prepare the other pieces in the freezer!

 

Sweet Asian Wings fingerling fries 001
For a side I had some Fingerling Potatoes left so I used them tonight, prepared Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, Parsley, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area, only 1 store around here locally that sells them (Thank you Jungle Jim’s).

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003
Then for one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans every day and never get tired of having them.

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 011
The overnight skies were lit up last night, one impressive thunderstorm moved through. A lot of heavy rain with some local flooding, and more on the way. Very humid this morning and cloudy. For breakfast had a couple of Jennie -O Turkey Breakfast Sausages, Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Add the Sunday Paper to that and it’s a good way to start the day. Did a load of laundry for Mom and swept up outside and done for the day. Sofa city for the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/ Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003

For one side dish, something new. My Mom’s cousin gave her some Roma Beans, a type of Pole Green Bean. It’s a large pod with flat beans in it. I left a little info on the Roma at the end of the post. We cleaned them and broke them up like regular Green Beans. Then just boiled them in water until fork tender. Drained and seasoned them with Sea Salt and a very light pour of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. And wow what a fantastic Bean! I love these, the only challenge will be trying to find a store that sells them! I’ll call Jungle Jim’s International Market next week, they’ll have them if anyone does.

 
Then for another side I prepared some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with.

COOKING HINT: blanch, then saute‚ in olive oil with a few sprigs of summer savory. Excellent for freezing. Good disease resistance and needs no support.

Today’s Menu: Cube Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

 
This morning I started off with Ham and Scrambled Egg on a Healthy Choice Whole Grain English Muffin. Along Cube Steak Sandwich w Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes 003with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After breakfast got a couple of loads of laundry done for Mom. Outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned around the house. We have a wooden ramp leading into the kitchen door and under the ramp we have a Mama Rabbit with 5 little ones, they peek out from time to time. After cleaning had some free time and got the 4 wheel cart out to enjoy another beautiful day out there again. Very hot weather moving in though with high humidity, 3 or more days where the highs will be mid 90’s and the heat index well over 100 degrees. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Cube Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.

 

 

I used my absolute favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two, it’s the best Cubed Steak I have ever found or had. It’s about the only Beef I ever have, normally I have Buffalo, Fish, Chicken, or Pork. They’re good size patties so I was able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out 1 pattie. To prepare them I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then rolled them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Canola Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy.

 
For a side I had some Fingerling Potatoes left so I used them tonight, prepared Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started Sweet Asian Wings fingerling fries 001by washing the Potatoes off in cold water.

Cube Steak

Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or Cubed Steak Sandwich Beef 002use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.
In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

Today’s Menu: Bacon Cheese Turkey Spamburger Hamburger w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges

 

Bacon Cheese Turkey Spamburger Hamburger 011
Another rainy and dreary day out today. Things have settled down somewhat in the house today, a lot calmer. Had a Poached Egg on a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread for my Breakfast. Mom went o Breakfast with some members of her Church and I was going to prepare Dad something but as usual he wanted McDonald’s! Puttered around the house doing some odds and ends for the day. Spammed it for dinner tonight! I prepared a Bacon Cheese Turkey Spamburger Hamburger w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges.

 

 

Forgive me, for I have Spammed! I wanted something a little different for dinner tonight so I dug around the pantry Bacon Cheese Turkey Spamburger Hamburger 002and found a can of Turkey Spam. Then went to the Spam website, clicked on to recipes and found this one – Bacon Cheese Spamburger Hamburger. I made mine with Turkey Spam, less 100 fewer calories and 5 less grams of fat per serving than normal Spam! Not a bad trade-off! So to make this Turkey Spamburger I’ll need; 1 Can Oven Roasted Turkey Spam, 1 Slice of Bordon Sharp Cheddar Sliced Cheese, Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (2 Slices), Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Buns. To prepare it; In medium skillet (Sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray), cook the Turkey Spam over medium heat, turning once, 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. How easy is that! What an excellent Burger. The Oven Roasted Turkey Spam has great flavor and the trimmings and you have that excellent Burger. There’s a Hawaiian Spam Burger I’m going to give a try here soon also.

 
For a side, I had bought some Fingerling Potatoes at Jungle Jim’s yesterday. Preheated the oven at 400 degrees. So IBacon Cheese Turkey Spamburger Hamburger 003 took a few of them and sliced them into wedges. Put them in a bowl, added some Extra Virgin Olive Oil to them (just enough for a light coat). Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Ground Garlic Powder, and Chili Powder. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam Spray and added the Wedges. Baked them until fork tender, about 18 minutes. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. I love Fingerling Potatoes but we can only find them at Jungle Jim’s International Market, Why? Anyway for dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Lean Turkey Pastrami Sandwich w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges

 

 

What a beautiful Morning Sky this morning! Bright Red, Orange, and Pink just filled the east Horizon. Started my Mom's Pineys 002day off with a new Breakfast Item, Eggo Bacon, Cheese, and Egg Sandwich. Just microwave for 1 minute and it’s ready. Nice tasting Breakfast Sandwich. It’s 210 calories and 21 net carbs, so not too bad. My Mom has a strain of Pineys (Flower) that were from my Grandmothers Flowers. So every Spring when they are in full bloom it brings back memories of my Grandmother. She always had a green thumb with anything she grew. Got the cordless leaf blower working, makes it a lot easier than sweeping around the outside. For dinner tonight I prepared a Lean Turkey Pastrami Sandwich w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges.

 
To make my Sandwich I’ll need; Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Pastrami, Klosterman Wheat Bread, Simple Life Grilled Turkey Pastrami Sandwich and Fingerling Potatoes 006Muenster Cheese, and Litehouse Lite Thousand Island Dressing. I’ll be using my Flat Griddle Pan to prepare it. To start I got the griddle out, put a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it, and heated it up on medium heat. To prepare it; on one bread slice I layered the Cheese, Turkey Pastrami,and Dressing. Cover with remaining bread slice. Place Sandwich on the Griddle. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until the bread was toasted and golden brown, turning once. Wow, One delicious Sandwich! The Muenster Cheese and Litehouse Lite Thousand Island Dressing works perfect with the Pastrami.

 
For a side to go with the Sandwich I prepared some fresh-cut Fingerling Wedges. I sliced the Potatoes into wedges Baked Fingerling Potato Wedgesand seasoned them with a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Dried Thyme, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Spread them out on a small Cookie Sheet and baked at 400 degrees until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Put a light sprinkle of fresh shredded Sargento Asiago Cheese over top and served. I wonder why Fingerling Potatoes are so hard to find? Jungle Jim’s International Market is the only one to carry them around here, at least the only one that I have found. For dessert/snack later tonight some fresh sliced Smoked Mozzarella Cheese, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni Slices, on top of Ritz Wheat Crackers.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak w/ Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 
Wow, what a beautiful morning and day out today! Some heavy rain moved through last night and took the humid Buffalo Petite Sirloin Steak Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Green B 007weather with it as it was headed out! Sunny and a high around 70, with no humidity. As I was preparing Breakfast this morning the toaster died. Mom had it for a lot of years. After Breakfast ran up to Kroger and bought a new one. Had about an 8 hour fight with Phantom Pains yesterday evening and into the morning, glad they are over they were very painful! Got the cart out and just enjoyed the day. For dinner tonight it’s a 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak w/ Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 
I rarely use Beef anymore, instead I use Wild Idea Buffalo whenever possible. For tonight’s dinner I’m using 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 a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had. And this one is no exception!

 

 

For one side dish I prepared some Fingerling Potatoes. I boiled them until fork tender, smashed them up a bit and seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Topped them with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Crumbled Mayfair Blue Cheese. For another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, a small 2 serving can. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread and a Bottle of Half and Half Diet Snapple. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

 
Greetings from West Chester! After Breakfast and my morning workout I started with laundry, 2 loads. Then I got Smoked Turkey Sausage Dog Roasted Fingerling Potatoes 002the vacuum out and hooked up the hose attachment and went to every window and vacuumed the window sills and the blinds, this was job now! Add on doing it from a wheelchair, it was a job! Not a bad day out partly cloudy and in the low 70’s. Went to the bank for Mom later in the afternoon. My Moms not feeling up to par today, she’s been having a lot of trouble sleeping at night. Made sure she took it easy today. For dinner tonight I prepared Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.

 

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage for tonight’s meal tonight. I cut the Sausage into to 2 pieces to give me a couple of Sausage Dogs. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! For the Buns I used Kroger Lite Wheat Hot Dog Buns. I then topped the Sausage with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, love these things!

 
Then to go with the sausage Dog I made some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. I cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, Sweet Asian Wings fingerling fries 001lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a large cookie sheet I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area, only 1 store around here locally that sells them. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Slices.

Today’s Menu:Toasted Ham and Cheese w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

 

 

Grilled Ham and Cheese Fingerling Potatoes 009
Winter has kicked in big time here in West Chester! I went out to get the paper this morning and it was freezing. The morning news said it was 9 degrees with a wind chill ranging from -5 to -10 degrees, and that was our high as it going to continue to drop throughout the day. Not a good day to be working outdoors. Cleaned house today and that was about it. For dinner tonight Toasted Ham and Cheese w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes.

 

 

 

Grilled Ham and Cheese just sounded good for dinner tonight! I used my new favorite Ham, Boar’s Head Smoked Honey Coated Ham. I started using this a few weeks ago and have been hooked on it ever since! With the Ham I used Boar’s Head Colby Longhorn Cheese, Kroger Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Klosterman Wheat Bread.

 

I started by toasting the Bread. As that was toasting I added my Ham to a small skillet and heated up the Ham, on medium high heat, for about 5 minutes. Grabbed the Toast from the toaster I spread the Mayo on the bottom slice of Bread, the Ham, Longhorn Cheese, and the Stone Ground Mustard on the top slice of Bread. And I now have one delicious Sandwich! The Boar’s Head Ham can’t be beat, as all their products, and I think I could have the Kroger Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard on any meat and make it taste even better.

I also had baked some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. I cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Crumbled Bleu Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a large cookie sheet I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. For dessert later a new one, Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream in a Waffle Bowl topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Chocolate Topping. Came across the Keebler Waffle Bowls at Kroger the other day. They’re Waffle Cones shaped into a bowl, you can eat the bowl as your eating the Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

Oven-Roasted Fingerling Potato Fries

Ingredients:

Fingerling Potatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Garlic Powder
Sea Salt
Pepper
Chili Powder
Crumbled Bleu Cheese

Directions:

1.) Thoroughly clean and scrub the potatoes.

2.) Cut the potatoes in half. This will allow the fingerlings to cook faster and also gives them a nice crisp.

3.) Toss in olive oil. I used about 1 tablespoons, but this will vary by how many potatoes you use. Just use enough oil to give the potatoes a nice coat. Add your seasonings.

4.) Put on a baking sheet.

5.) Roast in the oven for 25-35 minutes at 450 degrees. The potatoes should be tender in the middle when done. Sprinkle with Crumbled Bleu Cheese when done.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Skillet Roasted Herb Carrots and Fingerling Potatoes

 

 

Panko Crusted Veal Roasted Veggies 011
It’s been one rainy day around here today. It started last night and continued throughout today, about 40 degrees out. But we got some real cold weather moving in, which means some freezing rain or snow. Not much happening around the house today. Went to Kroger to pick up a prescription for Dad and a few items I needed. Big easy chair and Tv day this afternoon! For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Skillet Roasted Herb Carrots and Fingerling Potatoes.

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday I purchased some Veal Cutlets, Mushrooms, and Fingerling Potatoes. They have the best Veal anywhere around our area, so I always pick some up when I’m there. To prepare it I got the big three out to bread these beautiful Veal Cutlets; Flour, Egg Beaters, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Veal with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I then rolled them in Flour. I then took some Panko Crusted Veal Roasted Veggies 002Hungarian Paprika and Seasoned the Egg Beater’s with it, and dipped the veal Cutlets in it shaking off any excess. For the last coating I rolled the in Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko, pressing them in the Crumbs firmly to make sure the Cutlets were completely covered. These were thick cutlets so I had to fry them a little bit longer than you would normally would fry Veal. I fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 5 minutes per side. The coatings gave it a fantastic golden brown coating and the cutlet was tender and moist, and seasoned just right. You could cut by using a fork! Using the same pan I quartered some Button Mushrooms and Sauteed them for one side dish.

 

 

 

Then for my other sides I prepare Skillet Roasted Herb Carrots and Fingerling Potatoes. I washed and patted dry the Carrots and Fingerling Potatoes. I cut the Carrots into bite size pieces *parboiled them in water for about 5 minutes, drained the water and set the Carrots aside in a bowl. I did this to soften them up a bit before Roasting them. Then I cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Carrots and Potatoes in a large bowl aPanko Crusted Veal Roasted Veggies 003nd seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Dried Thyme, Dried Rosemary, a sprinkle of Garlic salt, and a pinch of Rubbed Sage. Tossed everything in the bowl until all pieces were coated with the seasoning. Using a large cookie sheet I spread the Carrots and Potatoes out on the sheet . Then transferred it to the oven and Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. I love Carrots and Fingerling Potatoes, but with the Herbs and Seasoning it makes just them that more delicious! It’s been one delicious Comfort Food Dinner! For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Topping Sauce.

 

 

 

* Parboil – The food items are added to boiling water and cooked until they start to soften, then removed before they are fully cooked. Parboiling is usually used to partially cook an item which will then be cooked another way such as braising, grilling, or stir-frying.

Veal
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Veal is the meat of young cattle (calves), as opposed to meat from older cattle. Though veal can be produced from a calf of either sex and any breed, most veal comes from male calves (bull calves) of dairy cattle breeds.
