Triple Threat: Quick, Low-Calorie, Cheap MealsDelish

 
When it’s time to eat, all your family cares about is great taste, but you have numbers on your mind: cost, time, and calories. Thankfully, these delicious meals have the kind of numbers you’ll love — each dish is under $3 per serving, ready in 30 minutes or less, and under 365 calories. What could be better than that?

 

 

 

Turkey and Balsamic Onion Quesadillas

All you need to make these easy tortilla sandwiches are five ingredients, many of which you probably already have in your kitchen. Make them a meal by serving with simple sautéed vegetables or a tossed green salad….

 

 

 

Greek Lemon Rice Soup

Smooth silken tofu replaces the eggs in this version of the classic Greek soup. Add an extra drizzle of olive oil on top of each portion to give it an extra-luxurious taste….

Even if you want to prepare low-fat meals, you don’t always have to buy the leanest (and most expensive) ground beef. If you’re preparing hamburgers on a grill or in a broiler rack, most of the fat will be lost during the cooking process, so stick with the less-lean (and more affordable) varieties.

If your rushing around getting things done for Christmas here’s some time saving ideas from the Eating Well web site. The link to all of them is at the bottom of the post, Enjoy!

 

 

Healthy Christmas brunch recipes you can make ahead.Eating Well
Spend more time with friends and family and less time in the kitchen with these make-ahead Christmas brunch recipes. Healthy brunch recipes like Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole and Baked Apple-Cinnamon French Toast can be made the night before and just popped in the oven before your guests arrive. And don’t forget healthy baked goods like Cranberry Bundt Cake, Lemon-Raspberry Muffins and Greek Walnut Spice Cake, many of which can be made several days in advance.

 

 

 

Cranberry Bundt Cake
In this healthy cranberry-walnut Bundt cake recipe, Greek yogurt and shredded apple or pear keep the cake moist and are a healthy substitute for extra butter. If you want to use something other than allspice, try pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon in the filling. For a nut-free variation, omit the walnuts in the cake or use chopped dried cranberries in their place….

 

 

 

Cranberry-Pecan Cinnamon Rolls
This cranberry-pecan cinnamon roll recipe is a cinch to put together—there’s no kneading and no rolling of any dough. These rolls are baked in a muffin tin and are already perfectly portioned, making them great for a morning treat or as part of a brunch menu….

Feast of the Seven Fishes

The Feast of the Seven Fishes (Italian: Festa dei sette pesci), also known as The Vigil (Italian: La Vigilia), is a celebration of Christmas Eve with meals of fish and other seafood.

The Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American Christmas celebration. Today, it is a feast that typically consists of seven different seafood dishes. However, some Italian-American families have been known to celebrate with nine, eleven or thirteen different seafood dishes. This celebration commemorates the wait, the Vigilia di Natale, for the midnight birth of the baby Jesus. It is unclear when the term “Feast of the Seven Fishes” was popularized.

 

 

 

The long tradition of eating seafood on Christmas Eve dates from the Roman Catholic tradition of abstinence – in this case, refraining from the consumption of meat or milk products – on Wednesdays, Fridays and (in the Latin Church) Saturdays, as well as during Lent and on the eve of specific holy days. As no meat or butter could be used on such days, observant Catholics would instead eat fish, typically fried in oil.
The meal may include seven, eight, or even nine specific fishes that are considered traditional. The most famous dish Southern Italians are known for is baccalà (salted cod fish). The custom of celebrating with a simple fish such as baccalà is attributed to the greatly impoverished regions of Southern Italy. Fried smelts, calamari and other types of seafood have been incorporated into the Christmas Eve dinner over the years.

 

 

 

The meal’s components may include some combination of anchovies, whiting, lobster, sardines, dried salt cod, smelts, eels, squid, octopus, shrimp, mussels and clams.[2] The menu may also include pastas, vegetables, baked or fried kale patties, baked goods and homemade wine. This tradition remains very popular to this day.

You may not think of CVS, Walgreens, and other drugstores as good places to buy food, but many of them carry weekly specials on staples and snacks such as soup, spaghetti sauce, and soda. It’s worth it to take a walk down the food aisle while you’re in the store, and always check the circular to see if anything you use is on special.

Today’s Menu: Outback Steakhouse Victoria’s Filet 6 oz w/ Baked Potato

 

 

 

Outback Victoria 6 oz

Outback Victoria 6 oz

What’s up everyone! Things are getting back to normal around here finally. Brought my Mom home from the Hospital and Dad’s over the flu and I’m back on-line again! Mom was lucky she could have easily broke a leg or hip when she slipped on the ice here at home. I heard about 4 people slipped on ice here in the neighborhood, one has a broken leg and one a fractured hip. She was at Mercy South Hospital in Fairfield, Ohio. Many, many thanks to Mercy, nothing but first class treatment and help! For dinner tonight the kitchen is closed and it was Outback Steakhouse to the rescue!

 

 

 

A Steak,Baked Potato, and House Salad sounded just right! I picked up by the Outback’s Curb Service. What a help and plus this service is, especially for those that disabled or handicapped. I ordered the Outback Victoria’s Filet 6 oz w/ Baked Potato and Side Salad. Ordered the Potatoes plain so I could use I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and no dressing and used Kraft Fat Free French Dressing. Had a Diet Half and Half Snapple to drink and I was set! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.
