When canning leave the peel on………………

Canning tomatoes, pears, and plums without peeling them preserves the nutrients, prevents waste, and saves time. If you don’t prefer the texture of the peel, then by all means, remove it. But if you don’t mind it, there’s no reason not to keep it on. That being said, some fruits and vegetables should definitely be peeled:

* Peaches – canning peaches with a fuzzy peel is generally not as appetizing

* Citrus fruits – the peel on oranges, limes, lemons, and so on is bitter

* Beets – the peel is just too tough

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees and partly cloudy outside today. After I had the Tea I headed to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by the Bank ATM and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Back home did laundry and cleaned and straightened the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I picked up a loaf the Goldminer California Sourdough Bread at Meijer. I love this Bread especially grilled! But don’t have too often because of the calories and carbs. To prepare the Sandwich I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 3 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Eat the skin………………

All fruits and veggies have nutrient and fiber dense skin, so if you have tender product don’t bother peeling them. Just make sure it is washed well. Carrots, sweet potatoes and beets all roast up great skin on.

Meat Grades…………………..

Meat grading is a voluntary system used as a guideline to identify the tenderness, marbling and overall palatability of the meat. Lower grades of meat are not less nutritious and often tend to be leaner and better for you. In order of best first, here are the common consumer grades:

* U.S. Prime – best grade of beef which comes from steers, heifers or young bulls. This is a small percentage of the meat that is produced in the U.S. Most of this goes to restaurants.
* U.S. Choice – Less marbling than prime, choice cuts can come from steers, heifers, cows or young bulls. Used in restaurants as well as consumer retail.
* U.S. Select – The least expensive of the common grades, usually leaner, less marbled meats. Select cuts come from the same animals as choice cuts.

Cooking Chicken……………….

Covered chicken takes longer to cook in the oven than uncovered chicken. When frying, grilling, broiling, or sautéing chicken, remove pieces as they get done to avoid overcooking while finishing other pieces. White meat and smaller pieces, such as breasts and wings, will get done faster than dark meat pieces, such as legs and thighs.

Got Milk…………………

Milk DOES do a body good – especially for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. But milk is a health plus only IF you can digest it readily. … Milk is also especially rich in vitamin B12 and potassium. All milk is fortified (it’s added separately) with vitamin D and helps boosts calcium absorption.
