Today’s Menu: Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain and 40 degrees this morning. As the rain ended the temperatures dropped also in to the mid 30’s. I went and picked up Breakfast for at Wendy’s. Back home, nothing to do today. I was caught up on everything so I kicked back and caught up on some shows I had recorded and watched some Football. Nice relaxed day. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food and Mom’s favorite, Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

Myself or Mom were not that hungry tonight so it’s going to be an Appetizer for Dinner tonight as I prepared Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos. 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 later a couple of slices of Kraft 2% Super Sharp Cheddar on Triscuits Whole Wheat Crackers with a Coke Zero to drink..

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Southwestern Style Hash Browns along with 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Meijer, they had a sale on several items I needed. One item being Pork Butt. I picked up a 5.2 lb. one. Back home I put up the groceries and then got the Pork Butt in the Slow Cooker. I’ll let that simmer on low until later tonight. Next I had to get the Chicken Thighs ready for tonight’s Dinner. So for Dinner tonight I we’ll be having the 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 added my Chicken Breasts and let it Marinate in the fridge until it was time to use. I used my favorite, 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 delicious! 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 them 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 a 2nd side I prepared a quart jar of our canned Green Beans. So glad to have so many quarts of canned Green Beans. Just heat them up and they taste like they were just picked, delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

To start today off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 44 degrees, windy and mostly cloudy outside. So I couldn’t rake the yard, I tried but it was useless with the wind! Good thing I guess I’ve been fighting bad Phantom Pains since around 4:00 this morning. Those continued till about 6:00 this evening. So I rested most of the day as these Phantom Pains just drain me.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 65 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After my Tea I took my car up and had it washed. Then I stopped by the ATM and then picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for Mom. My car is on its last legs. I hope it makes it through the Winter. I really don’t use it much, I usually use Mom’s car. But it’s nice to have that 2nd car in case Mom’s has to have work done, which it does from time to time. Anyway, I did some work outside in the yard. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food and Mom’s favorite, Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

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!

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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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

 

Early morning so no Breakfast. I had to be at the Dermatologist this morning for my yearly check up. He said everything was good and nothing new anywhere. Which made me happy! Another cold one around here. It was 29 degrees this morning. We had a high of 49 degrees and it sunny out all day. Back home I caught up on some sleep. I’m always restless the night before I go to the doctor’s. Did a few small chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green Beans.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had some rain showers this morning. We had a high of 67 degrees and cloudy for the day. I had a very rough night last night because of Phantom Pains. They started about 11:00 last night and continued till about 10:00 this morning. I spent the afternoon resting and catching up on some sleep. Hopefully better tomorrow. For Dinner tonight I prepared some 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cheese and Tortilla Rounds.

 

I made some of my Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili last week and had a couple of containers in the freezer. I sat one of the containers in the fridge to thaw overnight. So it’s an easy dish to make tonight. I’ll need to heat up the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Mission Tortilla Rounds. When making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. To reheat; I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside until needed.

 

As I said I’m serving the Chili with some Frank’s Hot Sauce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. For the Tortilla Chips I’m using Mission Tortilla Rounds.

 

To make it I got a bowl and made a bed of the Tortilla Rounds. Topped with some of the Chili, Hot Sauce, and Cheese. I had the Sour Cream on the side of the Bowl. Fantastic Light Meal. The Mission Tortilla Rounds are excellent Chips! I love using the 3 Bean Chili as many ways as I can, its so delicious! So for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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

 

I skipped Breakfast this morning. I got up around 6:30 this morning and got a few things done around the house including a load of laundry. Then it was off to Kroger for Mom and our neighbor. Then I went to Meijer for everything else. I noticed that Kroger is back to mandatory face mask to enter, so far Meijer isn’t. There seems to be a lot of people in the hospital with it. Sure hope it gets better soon. 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.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread

 

 

To start this morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread and topped with them I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We have a high of 66 degrees with light rain showers on and off all day. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. What a better way than Chili to Celebrate the Autumn Season! For Dinner tonight it’s my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread.

 

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, 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.

 

I also prepared a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later some Reduced Fat Triscuits topped with Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Cream Style Skillet Corn and Shellie Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, and Toast. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made enough for Mom and myself. Mostly sunny and 72 degrees outside today! Another perfect day out there. Not a lot to do today. Did a few small jobs inside and then outside. Later I got the cart out of the shed and just rode around for a while, just enjoying the sunshine and seeing all the yard sales around today! For Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Cream Style Skillet Corn and Shellie 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 added 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.

 

 

I prepared a can of Glory – Seasoned Cream Style Skillet Corn. It had been awhile since I’ve had this. To prepare it just emptied the can into a sauce pan and heated to a boil. Reduced the heat, to a low simmer and continued heating until heated through. If you like Corn you’ll love this Glory Corn! Very good Corn side dish.

 

 

For a 2nd side 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 saucepan 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. For Dessert later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 84 degrees , with low humidity. Another beautiful day out there! Watered all my plants and lawn early. Then later I got the cart out of the shed along with the rake, leaf blower, weed killer and grass seed. Beautiful day to do some yard work. 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.
