Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, fried some slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham and topped that with a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese. I love Breakfast Sandwiches! Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 42 degrees out. Not much going on, did a few things around the house just to try to stay busy. Still in house isolation. For Dinner tonight, Turkey and Black Bean Street Tacos and Refried Beans. We are having the leftover Turkey and Black Bean Tacos from Thursday night, that we served on the Old El Paso Stand n’Stuff Taco Shell. Well tonight I’m having Turkey Tacos but served in the Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. Anymore I prefer these over the Hard Shells. So I just reheated everything for my Dinner tonight. Below I’ve left the recipe and instructions from having these previously. Enjoy and Stay Healthy!

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use my favorite, Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have an okay selection of it. So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O, Bush’s Beans, and Mission Tacos together make one fine Taco!

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, and Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. These Tortilla are so good and taste so fresh. Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well Isolation continues. Both me and Mom are fine but Mom being 92 its not a good idea for her to be out, but most everything is shutdown around here anyway but a few Grocery Stores. Then its hard for me to go out and possibly pick up something and then she gets it. Just best to in for a couple of weeks. We’ll sure be glad when this virus finally passes! Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the sweeper. For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

We love our Turkey Tacos, great Comfort food for us! When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area.

3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins

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

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. We had showers in the morning and cloudy later on, high of 51 degrees but dropping during the afternoon. Cleaned House, did some laundry, and made some Chili for the day! For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread Muffins.

 

 

 

 

To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. 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, Then I mix in 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), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), 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 Beans and Ground Turkey last night. 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 in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour 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 just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, 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 the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

I also prepared a small batch of Cornbread Muffins. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with Chili! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

“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.

Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start my day off I Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its cloudy and rain showers. Later it was mostly cloudy and 50 degrees out. Not feeling too good today, my sinuses are driving me crazy! The weather needs to get cold and stay cold so my sinuses can adjust. As long as our temperatures keep going up and down I suffer. So not a lot going on for me today. For Dinner a Loaded Chili Baked Potato w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve had a Loaded Baked Potato, and long over due! To make my Loaded Potato I’ll need a large Russet Potato, my 3 Bean Turkey Chili, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Daisy Light Sour Cream.

 

 

 

 

To start I got a small Sauce Pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray. Then added my Chili that I had prepared yesterday and heated it on medium low until heated through. Set aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

 

I first turned the stove on at 400 degrees for my Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Garlic Salt, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Rinse cleaned the Asparagus and cut the tough ends off of the Asparagus before Seasoning. Laid the Asparagus Spears out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. First put some Extra Light Olive Oil across the Asparagus and then my Seasonings. Placed the pan in oven and cook for approximately 8 minutes. Topped it with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese before serving.

 

 

Finally I prepared the Potato. I first washed the Potato off and dried it with a paper towel. I grabbed a paring knife and I made small slits on all sides of the Potato. Next I got a bowl for the Potato. I then microwaved it for 6:00 minutes. Pulled it out of the microwave and gave it the fork test. I used the same paring knife and checked to make sure the Potato was done all the way through. Just jabbed the knife in the Potato and if it goes all the way through its done. Times will vary depending on the size of the Potato. I didn’t split the Potato open until I was ready to top it.

 

 

To serve it I split the Potato open, seasoned it with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I added my 3 Bean Turkey Chili, then the Sargento Cheese, and finally a dab of the Daisy Light Sour Cream. Wow, now this a Stuffed Potato! The Turkey Chili and Beans combined with the Cheese and a Sour Cream makes one delicious Potato! Served the Potato with the Roasted Asparagus and a slice of Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. I had baked a loaf earlier today. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Russet Potatoes……

Russet potatoes offer a higher fiber content than white potatoes, which helps improve gut health, Friedman continues. Russets are also a good source of iron, which supports healthy blood, and magnesium, which is needed for heart, nerve and immune system function.

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

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to drop my car off over to the Auto Shop for an Oil Change, Tire Rotation and to repair a leak in Wind Shield Wiper Fluid Reserve. Had Mom’s Winterized last week and had mine done today. After I got back I loaded the Crock Pot up with all the ingredients for my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! Chili just seems to taste better this time of the year! Did a load of laundry and cleaned the Kitchen today, Fridge, Microwave, and Floor. For Dinner tonight its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Cornbread.

 

 

To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. 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, Then I mix in 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), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), 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 Beans and Ground Turkey last night. 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 in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour 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 just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after an hour 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 the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

 

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 a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
