Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy, 88 degrees, and a little humid out today. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Then later I went to Costco for a few items. Not much else going on today, did a few things around the house and outside. For Dinner tonight its Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta w/ French Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

I had this meal a while back and really enjoyed it, good Dinner when you want something light. I enjoy simple Meals so much! So for the Chicken I used the leftover Kirkland – Costco Rotisserie Chicken. I put the Chicken in a bowl and I seasoned it with a shake of Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Set aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

 

Next I prepared the Sauteed Mushrooms. I used a small package of Baby Bella Mushrooms that I had purchased at Meijer the other day. Cooked them in a small skillet. I added a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the skillet on medium heat. I sliced up the Mushrooms and added them to the heated skillet. Seasoned them with Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Roasted Cumin, Dried Thyme, and Dried Rosemary. Sauteed for about 5 minutes stirring them often. Removed the skillet from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 

 

As the Mushrooms were cooking I started cooking the Rotini Pasta. For the Pasta I used Ronzoni Smart taste Rotini. For some reason finding Rozini Pasta Products in this are is getting harder and harder to find. I found this at Walmart. To prepare it I got a sauce pan out and added about 1 1/2 quarts Water and Salt. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the pasta and stirred; returned it to a rapid boil. Cooked it for 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 9 minutes removed it from the heat, drained it. Added it to a bowl, seasoning it with a bit more Salt and a 1/2 a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then added the Chicken and Mushrooms. Stirred until well mixed. The trio of Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta combine together to make one delicious Dinner! Served it in a bowl and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I also had a slice of Pillsbury French Bread leftover from last night. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken w/ Cut Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Baked French Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Egg Whites, Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Cheddar Cheese. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Plenty of Sun, 99 degrees, and very humid outside today! It’s really almost too hot to do anything outside. They said the heat index was over 100 degrees! After Breakfast I went to Costco as they opened up at 10:00 this morning. I need some Vitamins, picked up a couple of cases of Canned Goods for the Reach Out Lakota Center, Shrimp, and a Rotisserie Chicken. Back home and stayed in the AC all day! For Dinner tonight its a Rotisserie Chicken w/ Cut Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

 

I had no clue on tonight’s Dinner until going to Costco this morning. I came across some beautiful and large Kirkland Rotisserie Chickens. I mean these Chickens were really big!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So the Chicken was already cooked and all I had to do was reheat it. I grabbed a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Heated the oven on 350 degrees. When ready I put the Chicken in and cooked until it heated through, about 25 minutes. It came out perfect and looked delicious! When I sliced it the juices in it came flowing out. It was seasoned just perfect with an incredible flavor. Very glad I went to Costco!

 

 

 

 

 


For one side I prepared a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. Just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated on high to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and simmered until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then it was leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes for another side. Heated the leftovers in the microwave and served. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Loaf Bread. Very Good Meal considering I had no clue on what to have earlier! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
