Today’s Menu: Leftover – Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 53 degrees with rain all day. Did a few things around the house and that was about it. My sinuses are killing me today so I rested and caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I’ve left the original post from last night for description and recipe. Enjoy, later!

 

 

 

Well nothing better than Red Beans and Rice w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage for this 2nd Day of 2020! For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey and for the Garlic Loaf I used a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread. I love these types of meals! I’m preparing 3 Bean Turkey Chili tomorrow! To prepare it I’ll need; the box of the Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Mix, 3 cups Water, Extra Light Olive Oil, and the Sausage. Mixed 3 cups of water, Rice Mix and 2 tbsp. of Light Olive Oil in 2-quart saucepan until it was well blended. Brought to a boil. Then reduced the heat to low and covered.

 

I got another skillet out as the Rice was cooking, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Sliced the Sausage into bite size slices and added them to the heated skillet until heated through. Removed them from the heat and set aside until needed.

 

 

 

 

 

Simmered the Rice for 25 minutes, until the tender. Stirred occasionally to prevent the Rice and Beans from sticking. With 4 minutes of cooking time left I added the Smoked Turkey Sausage. When done I removed the skillet from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. And done ready to serve! This makes one fantastic Meal! The Red Beans and Rice is Seasoned perfect. It made plenty of both the Red Beans and the Rice. And the Sausage works perfect with it. Plenty of great leftovers!

 

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for a couple of lunches! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 55 degrees with rain in the afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom and then stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the rake and leaf blower out. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then raked the front yard. Not a lot of leaves, just looking for stuff to do. For Dinner tonight I prepared Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Kroger Diced Ham, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We ended up getting about 3 inches of snow overnight. It caused some bad roads overnight but most of it was melted by late afternoon off the roads. Cloudy and rain later in the day, high of 37 degrees. More bad weather due overnight. Not much going on today. Did a few jobs around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice.

 

I purchased a a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer yesterday. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

To prepare it; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Lined the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 8 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

 

 

For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a micowavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one my favorites from the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with the Salmon.Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Another cold morning out, 28 degrees and another heavy frost out this morning. Sunny and 55 degrees out today. After Lunch got the leaf blower, rake, and cart out of the shed and a little yard work. Not a lot of leaves today, just staying ahead of it. Helped a neighbor up the street do a few things around her yard. It feels so good to be outside in the sun doing things. Before long it will be so cold or snowy you can’t get out so I get out as much as I can. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I’ve left the original post from yesterday for the dish recipe and description. Take Care all!

 

Well nothing better than Red Beans and Rice w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage to warm up a cold and windy day here in Ohio! For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey and for the Garlic Loaf I used a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread. I love these types of meals!

Another cold morning out, 29 degrees and a heavy frost out this morning. Cloudy and 50 degrees for the day. A little later it was raking leaves day! My neighbor across the street has a huge tree and when the leaves fall it covers at least 6 houses yards with leaves. I got my 4 wheel cart out with rake and leaf blower and my neighbor came over and we raked my yard, and then we got his yard, and we finished by getting our other neighbor’s yard. 14 Hefty Bags full of leaves! Called it day after that! For Dinner tonight I prepared Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start my morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and a high of 58 degrees. We had a cold front move in with a low of 36 degrees this morning! Did a little home maintenance today. Changed the furnace filters and did some repair work on the flooring trim. Went to Home Depot a little later and and bought 5 new floor vents and replaced the old vents with them. For Dinner tonight Something New, Hamburger Helper Southwest Pasta. Tonight its Turkey Southwest Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

I came across the Hamburger Helper Southwest Pasta while at Meijer the day before. It’s New from Hamburger Helper. The box contains the Pasta, Sauce Mix, Black Beans, Corn, and Spices. I’m substituting Ground Turkey for the Hamburger the directions call for. I’ll be adding 1 lb. Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast, Water, 2% Milk, Sargento Off the Block Mexican 4 Cheese Blend, and I’ll be adding a 1/2 can of Cooked Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn. You can always add your choice of extras to it like Beans, Green Chilies or Onions.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Brown the Turkey in a skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 7 minutes, breaking up and stirring; drain. Return cooked Turkey to skillet. Stir in 2 cups of Hot Water, Milk, Sauce Mix, Corn, and Pasta. Heat to boiling. Reduce the heat. Cover and simmer about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat and get ready to eat! I sprinkled the Sharp Cheddar Cheese across the top when done.

 

 

 

 

Hamburger Helper has another winner! Fantastic Seasoning and plenty of Black Beans and Corn. The Turkey works perfect with it in place of the Ground Beef. Plus I saved calories, fat, and carbs by using the Jennie – O Extra Lean Turkey Breast! Another good one to have in the pantry! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For a Snack later a bottle of Diet Peach Snapple and a bag of Snyder’s 100 Calorie Pretzels.

Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

Today’s Menu: Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Cheddar Cheese. I really love these. So easy to prepare and very good! Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving, which is excellent. The rains have finally let up, but still a lot of flooding and more heavy rain on the Saturday. After Lunch got the push broom and leaf blower out, a lot leaves and limbs around the deck and driveway. Later on I had to go to the bank and got gas. Our gas here in Ohio will be going up, They are putting a Road Tax of 18 cents on gas. They say it’s going to road repair. Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken w/ Cheesy Rotini Pasta.

 

 

 

 

I haven’t had this in a while and it sounded good! To make the dish I’ll need; 1 Box Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper and 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the Betty Crocker Crispy Cheddar Bacon Chicken – Chicken Helper. I’ve tried a few of them now but this is my favorite by far. This really turns out delicious and an easy meal to prepare! The Rotini and Cheese Sauce is excellent and the Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor for the Chicken is one of the better Crumb Coatings I’ve had for Chicken. To prepare it first go ahead and make the Pasta, by the box directions. Just boil, stir, and season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the Pasta was cooking I prepared the Chicken, I used Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts. I cut each Breast into 3 pieces. Coated each piece with the provided Seasoned Crumbs and fried until done. The full instructions are at the end of the post. The Chicken Helper box contains Rotini Pasta with Naturally Flavored Cheesy Sauce Mix and Seasoned Crumb Coating with Natural Bacon Flavor. I added the Chicken, Water, 2% Milk, Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Pepper. I cut each chicken breast into 3 to 5 slices. Coated the Chicken in the Milk and Seasonings. Then fried the Chicken until Golden Brown and done. Delicious!

I also baked a loaf of La Bagquetterie Garlic Oval Bread. I buy this Bread at Meijer Bakery. Good replacement for the RiverRoad bakery Bread that we no longer can find. It bakes up in 8 minutes and has nice pieces of Garlic through out the loaf. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Sprite to drink. Finally found the Diet Sprite at Jungle Jim’s International Market.
