Today’s Menu: Abe Froman Pizza (Sausage Pizza)

 

 

 

To start this Monday morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also fried up 3 slices of al fresco Chicken Bacon and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. 73 degrees with rain and thunderstorms out to today. I spent most of the day resting. I’ve had a bad Sinus Headache for the last day or so. So some rest and doing nothing felt real good. Feeling a lot better as the day went on! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Abe Froman Pizza (Sausage Pizza).

For those not familiar with who Abe Froman is – Abe Froman Sausage King of Chicago is a mentioned character in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off movie, who reserved a dining spot at the Chez Quis restaurant but was a no show. His identity was stolen by Ferris Bueller in the movie. So another name for a Sausage Pizza is an Abe Froman.

 

 

 

I’m having a Abe Froman PizzaTonight (Sausage Pizza). I’ll need; Stonefire Wholegrain Naan Bread, Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Italian Dinner Sausage, LaRosa’s Pizza Sauce, sliced Mini Portabella Mushrooms, sliced Italian Marinated Green Olives, and Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese. I love this Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread, it tastes so fresh and bakes up perfect!

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I first Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam No Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. I’m using Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Dinner Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. I used these for the first time a couple of weeks ago and love them! Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in the skillet. When done I removed them from the skillet to a plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Sausage was cooking I sliced up the Green Olives. Then I got a baking sheet and lined it with foil. With the oven preheated, I put the 2 Naan Breads on the tray and sprayed the tops with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. Slid the tray into the oven and baked for 2 minutes. Removed it from the oven and let them cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the LaRosa’s Pizza Sauce. Next I added the Mozzarella Cheese, sprinkled the Mushrooms and Olives, then I loaded it up with the Turkey Sausage, and topped it with some more of the Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 9 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pulled the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. The Naan Bread makes a perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust had excellent taste and baked up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizza. The new Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Dinner Sausages were flat out delicious on the Pizza! Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. There were 2 of Naan Breads in the package. Mom wanted some Pepperoni Slices so one one of the Naan Breads I added Hormel Turkey Pepperoni to it. I always have couple of packs of the Stonefire Naan Bread in the freezer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

Chili and Cheese Nachos 005
Another night and another round of not a lot of sleep, fighting with Phantom Pains for a second night in a row. I sure wish the medical world would come up with a treatment or drug that could control these. Well the weather finally broke, we actually have some sunshine! Beautiful sunny but cold Winter’s Day. Breakfast, a quick workout, and a load of laundry and my day was done. The afternoon will be the remote and my easy chair watching Football! Not a lot of sleep again last night so I wanted to prepare something that didn’t require a lot of effort, but still a hot meal. So tonight it’s one of my favorites, Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

 

 

Add the cheese and bake!

Add the cheese and bake!

I used Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their selves, they bake and hold their shape real good. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives. Before I go any further a bit about these Olives, anyone that uses small cans of Sliced Black Olives know what a pain they can be opening sometimes. Not these, they come in a can with a pull tab! About time. For my other toppings I used some Sliced Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella.

 

 

 

Chili and cheese nachos
To prepare I preheat 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 sauce pan, as it was heating I added a 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 add the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or so until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. Nothing better on a cold Winter’s Day than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! Also had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

Chili and Cheese Nachos 005

 
Today was our Community Annual Yard Sale, Fred Stanford would have a field day today around here! Taking a tour of the Park it looks as though neighbors bought their neighbor’s junk from last year and now are reselling it this year. Only in the eye of the beholder! It was little hotter out and bit more humid out today, nothing too bad though. Really didn’t want a big meal tonight so I went with a family favorite, Chili and Cheese Nachos!
