Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and as usual I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went Kroger for a few items and then stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. 31 degrees out this morning and 55 degrees and sunny for the afternoon. The Flu is going around and Mom has it! So I’m playing Doctor today also. Got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work for most of the day. For Dinner tonight it’s a Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a Comfort Food Dinner tonight for me, Grilled Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup. I’ve had this combo before and it just keep getting better! To make my Grilled Ham Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo, French’s Yellow Mustard, Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread to make my Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Next spread the Mayo on the bottom slice of Bread, next layered the Ham, spread the Mustard, and added the slice of the Swiss. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a large 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. Love these Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches.

 

 

 

 

 


For the Soup I’m using a favorite of mine, Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix. I had not prepared this in a while and was ready for some. To prepare a package of it; In a 2 quart sauce pan bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisk in the soup mix. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste and serve! Perfect seasoning, thickened up just right, plenty of Diced Potato and a fantastic Potato flavor. The package makes 8 cups and very easy to prepare. I really love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far. So delicious and easy to prepare. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Boneless Smoked Ham

Enjoy the exceptional flavor of a traditional bone-in ham without the bone. Available in the Deli retail case as a center of the plate item or at the Service Deli sliced by the pound for a sandwich of note.

Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix
A favorite original Bear Creek® soup. Very creamy and delicious with a delicate blend of parsley, herbs and spices to give it a little kick.

Yields about 8 one-cup servings.
Try adding crumbled bacon, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese for variety.
While they simmer on the stove, you can smell the hearty goodness of Bear Creek® soups. They’re quick and easy to make and come in 15 delicious varieties. These soups have a homemade taste that will satisfy every appetite.

Collard Greens
Collard greens are meltingly tender when cooked for a long period of time. Smoked turkey in place of bacon adds the traditional smoky taste………..

Blackberry BBQ Pork Chops with Collards and Corn
Steaming corn right on top of the collards saves time and dirties fewer pots in this easy dinner recipe. Skip bottled BBQ sauce and mash blackberries with some pantry staples to yield a finger-licking-good barbecue sauce for the juicy pork chops. To make it even faster, grab a bag of prechopped collards from the produce section…………

Sweet Spicy Steam-Fried Collard Greens
In a departure from typical Southern-style all-day stewed greens, these collards are sautéed first with a small amount of fat and then steamed, meaning tender-crisp healthy greens on the table in under a half hour.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 


For Breakfast to start off this chilly Monday morning I Poached an Egg and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 31 degrees out there to start the day, had a good frost out there. Sunny and 54 degrees for the afternoon, not bad. Spent the afternoon still trying to figure out all the functions to Windows 10 and a new Computer. i really dread major changes, but not much choice in this one. Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 


I love the Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips, it’s always a great go to when you want that easy to prepare meal! To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the Chicken Strip . And Chicken is served! It’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 


For one side I heated up the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes from last night. Just microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes. I also some leftover Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes with.

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips

Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips evoke memories of growing up in a sleepy southern town.

One of America’s Favorites – Shoofly Pie

Shoofly pie

Shoofly pie

Shoofly pie (or shoo-fly pie) is a molasses pie or cake that developed its traditional form among the Pennsylvania Dutch in the 1880s, who ate it with strong black coffee for breakfast. It is called Melassich Riwwelboi or Melassichriwwelkuche (molasses crumb cake) in the Pennsylvania Dutch language.

Shoofly pie is a molasses crumb cake that was baked in a pie crust. The addition of a pie crust made it easier for people to hold a piece in the hand while eating it.

It comes in two different versions: wet-bottom and dry-bottom. The dry-bottom version is baked until fully set and results in a more cake-like consistency throughout. The wet-bottom version is set like cake at the top where it was mixed in with the crumbs, but the very bottom is a stickier, gooier custard-like consistency.

A Montgomery pie is similar to a shoofly pie, except lemon juice is usually added to the bottom layer and buttermilk to the topping. Treacle tart is a pie with a filling made from light treacle.

Shoofly pie began as a crust-less molasses cake called Centennial cake in 1876, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. In the 1880s, home bakers added a crust to make it easier to eat alongside a cup of coffee in the morning, without plates and forks. Precursors include Jenny Lind cake, a gingerbread cake from the middle of the 19th century.

Because the cake contains molasses but no eggs, historians conclude that it was typically baked during the winter, when chickens laid no eggs but when molasses would store well in the cold weather. The use of baking powder places its invention firmly after the Civil War and in the 1870s, when Pennsylvania Dutch bakers began using baking powder.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and then topped them with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and some Ortega Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. For most of the day I was taking it easy. My allergies were running wild and I had a heck of a bad headache. The weeds are about all dead in the woods behind us so hopefully my allergies will die with them. For Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Buitoni Fettuccine; I filled a large Sauce Pan with 4 quarts Water and a couple of shakes of Morton’s Light Salt. Turned it on high heat. When it was a full boil I added the Fettuccine. Reduced the heat for a gentle boil of the Pasta for 2 minutes, stirred frequently. Removed from the heat and drained the water. Seasoned the Pasta with Extra Light Olive Oil, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Morton’s Light Salt, and Dried Oregano.

 

 

 

 

 

To serve, in a bowl, I made a bed of the Fettuccine and topped it with the Shrimp. I love Shrimp and Pasta! The Fettuccine was tender and so delicious. Then with the added Shrimp it just made that much better! I topped it with some Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.
