Today’s Menu: Chicken, Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Honey Mustard and Lettuce Hoagie w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Egg White Ham and Cheese Omelet. I used Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, Meijer Diced Ham,  and Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s one rainy day out there today. Rain and 59 degrees out today. House cleaned today, ran the vacuum and dusted. Then straightened up the pantry. For Dinner tonight a Chicken, Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Honey Mustard and Lettuce Hoagie w/ Baked Fries.

 

A Chicken, Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Honey Mustard and Lettuce Hoagie sure sounded goods for Dinner tonight! I have seen a few on cooking shows recently and just thought it was time to have one. I’ll need a package of Thin Cut Chicken Breasts, Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar, French’s Honey Mustard, Butter Lettuce, and a Meijer Perfection Wheat Mini Hoagie Bun.

 

 

 

 

I bought a package of Katie’s Best Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts at Meijer a day ago and I’ll be using those. To prepare them, this morning I removed a couple of them from the package and froze the remainder. I put the Chicken in a large Hefty Plastic Bag and added Buttermilk and Frank’s Hot sauce to bag. Squeezed the bag together making sure to fully cover both Chicken Breasts and sat the bag in the fridge to marinate until ready to use.

 

 

 

I turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Then to prepare the Chicken I first got a Cast Iron Skillet out. Added a 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil to it and heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating got the bag with Chicken marinating out of the fridge. Took the Chicken out of the bag and shook off the excess Buttermilk and Hot Sauce Marinade, I seasoned them with Salt and Pepper. I then put a couple of tablespoons of Flour, that I Seasoned with Paprika, a in pie pan and rolled the Chicken Breasts in the Flour, making sure both sides were covered with the Flour.

 

With the Cast Iron heated I added the Chicken Breasts. Cooked them 2 minutes a side and then finished them off in the oven. I flipped them over 1 more time and continued to cook them until I had a temperature reading of 165°F. As I removed them from the oven I added a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese to them. The Chicken came out Golden Brown!

 

 

 

 

To make my Hoagie I’ll need Bacon, Vermont Cheddar Cheese (already added), Honey Mustard, Lettuce, and the Wheat Hoagie Buns. I used Smithfield Hickory Smoked Bacon that I had fried earlier this afternoon. I only needed about about 2 slices per Hoagie but as always when frying Bacon you have to double the amount you prepare because you end up eating half of what you fix!

 

 

 

 

So I split the Hoagie Buns in 1/2. On the bottom Bun I added the Honey Mustard putting a nice slathering across the Bun. I love that word slathering, it just sounds like something good is coming! So then I added the Lettuce, the Cheese topped Chicken Breast, the Bacon, and the top Bun. The Hoagie was delicious!

 

 

 

To go with Hoagie I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Health Benefits of Chicken Breast
Chicken breast is an excellent source of low-fat protein. Protein helps your body to maintain muscle mass and also helps you to build muscle if you are participating in a strength program. Chicken breast is also a very good source of selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B6, and niacin.

“Not So Sloppy” Turkey Joes w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

Today’s Menu: “Not So Sloppy” Turkey Joes w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I made my Skillet Potatoes and Diced Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 44 degrees and partly sunny outside today. Took Mom’s car and then my car over to the car wash up the road, long line of cars getting washed today. Back home I grabbed the Windex, paper towel and the indoor car window squeegee and I cleaned the inside windows of both cars. That’s enough for today! For dinner tonight it was a Comfort Food Sandwich! I prepared some “Not So Sloppy” Turkey Joes w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

I used my favorite Sloppy Joe Mix, the Hormel Not-So-Sloppy-Joe Sloppy Joe Sauce. I love this Sauce and it’s ingredients! It’s a nice thick Sauce that’s seasoned just right. Which is why they call it Not So Sloppy, it’s thicker than other Sauces and doesn’t drip as much. The Sauce is seasoned with Spices, Onions, Green Peppers among other ingredients (70 calories and 15 carbs per serving). I’ll also be using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast (120 calories per serving) and Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Hamburger Buns, which I actually found a package at Meijer last week.

 

So to prepare it; I started by frying the Ground Turkey. I used a large skillet; sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Added the Ground Turkey and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. Stirred and cooked until no longer pink, added the jar of Not So Sloppy Joe sauce. Stirred until heated through. Served on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love these! The Sauce combined with the Jennie – O Turkey is a perfect match.

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Waffle Pretzels along with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hormel Not-So-Sloppy-Joe Sloppy Joe Sauce

Richer and Thicker and Far From Ordinary
Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce is as distinctive as its name. Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce has a hint of barbecue flavor and is richer and thicker than other sloppy joe sauces.

Since its beginning in 1985, there’s been one very graphic way to show the thick and rich texture of Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce: the “drip test.” When you hold up a sloppy joe made with Not-So-Sloppy-Joe® sloppy joe sauce, there are no drips. It’s that rich and thick.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this Monday Morning off I toasted a Thomas English Muffin, Scrambled 1 Egg, fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 56 degrees and sunny out there today. Wow this some end of the year weather we are having. They are saying it will be in the low 60’s for Christmas day and the day after! I have a feeling we’ll pay dearly for this nice weather later on! Anyway I went to Menard’s after Breakfast. Stopped by Kroger to pick up a couple of items for Mom and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her. Just did a few things around the house and later got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I love these Smoked Sausages.

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Diced Ham, Hash Browns, and Off the Block Cheddar Cheese Omelet. I used Kroger Diced Ham, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smokey Chipotle taco Sauce, and 2 Eggs to make this very delicious Omelet! I topped the Omelet with some more of the Cheddar and the Taco Sauce. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Great start to rainy day!

 

 

 

 

Rain, windy, and 63 degrees out today. They say we could end up with an inch or more of rain. And they way it’s been coming down we’ll get that if not more. So nothing going on outside in this weather. I did give the outdoor grill a good cleaning. Scrubbed the grates and cleaned down into the base of grill. Then just kicked back and watched College Football for the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Mettwursts w/ Baked Fries

 

To start this morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 64 degrees out today. The wind is blowing around 20 miles per hour and there’s a bit of nip in air! Got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work and I planted 4 Tomato Plants that I had bought Mom yesterday. We have a nice little mini garden going. Tomato Plants, a Rosemary plant, a couple of Parsley plants, 2 Bell Pepper plants, a Thai Pepper Plant, a Jalapeno Plant, and 4 Strawberry plants. For Dinner tonight I fired the Grill back up. Tonight its Grilled Lean Mettwursts w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

I had a package of the Blue Grass Lean Mettwursts that I bought from Jungle Jim’s in the freezer. Sat the package in the fridge over night to thaw. There’s 6 Sausages that come in the package. I greased the grill grates and fired the grill up! I prepared all 6 of the of the Metts, we’ll have the leftovers for a couple of Lunches. We served the Sausages on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns and topped them with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Nothing like Grilling! These are 70 less calories than the normal Mett, bought 4 packages of those and have them in the freezer.

 

 

 

 

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done!

Today’s Menu: Grilled Turkey Bratwursts and Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees, humid, and a chance of a shower. Same weather for the next week or so. Got the cart and leaf blower out of the shed to do some yard work. Sprayed for weeds then cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. The sun is too hot and too humid to stay out any long periods. Took a spin around the neighborhood and went down by the lake for a bit. For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Turkey Bratwursts and Baked Fries.

 

 

 

Tried a new Brat I came across at Meijer the other day, Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Premium Original Bratwurst. They looked delicious so I thought I would give them a try. They are natural meat color instead of the usual white colored Brats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I went out and started the grill. Back inside I got the Bratwursts out of the fridge and sprayed them with Pam Non Stick Spray. With the grill ready I added the Brats and shut the lid of the grill. Grilled them for about 21 minutes, turning links often.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Brats came out incredible! These are excellent Brats. Grilled up great, great tasting, and stayed firm after cooking. All good traits of Bratwursts. I’ll purchase more of these soon! Served them on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Bun and topped them with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Brats I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries for us. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Bratwursts and Mettwursts w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this Wednesday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 84 degrees out today. I had to have Mom back at the Dermatologist at 10:00. Her face is slowly healing up from the cream to take of the precancer places on her cheeks. Afterward we stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Afterward I went back out and stopped by the ATM then went to Home Depot. I needed a couple of bags of Black Wood Chips and a bag of Potted Soil. For Dinner tonight I fired the Grill back up. Tonight its Grilled Bratwursts and Mettwursts w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I bought another package of the Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts. There’s 6 Sausages that come in the package, 3 Brats and 3 Mettwursts. I greased the grill grates and fired the grill up! So glad we finally got another grill! I prepared all 6 of the Brats and Metts, we’ll have the leftovers for a couple of Lunches. We served the Sausages on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns and topped them with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Nothing like Grilling!

 

 

 

 

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its cloudy and a high of 81 degrees. After Breakfast I went to the Walmart Garden Center, looking for a grill. Then to Kroger and picked up a couple of items and then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch got the cart out of the shed and finished up some yard work. Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 


I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I love these Smoked Sausages.

 

 


To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.
