Today’s Menu: Leftover Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Dinner Rolls


For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and a high of 34 degrees, one dreary day out there. Also not a good day if you have sinus problems like me. These shifting temperatures are not good for me. Had a headache all day. Did a few things around the house and laid down for a while. Easy Dinner tonight, Leftovers! I heated up the Leftovers from our Dinner last night. So it’s Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Dinner Rolls. I’ve left the post from last night for description and directions. Enjoy, Stay Safe Everyone!


For the Turkey I used the Jennie – O Oven Ready Skinless Boneless Turkey Breast. Such an easy way to have a moist and fantastic tasting Turkey, along with little to clean-up! Comes in a Jennie O Turkey Breast Oven Ready Bag, that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 165 degrees. The Turkey comes out moist, juicy and delicious, with an excellent flavor! So cooking usually for just myself and Mom, it’s just the right size (2-3 lbs.). Enough leftovers for Dinner tomorrow. I also prepared a Blackberry Glaze, which works great on Turkey or Pork! To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post.


For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.



For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good, it’s been a while since I’ve had any. Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. I also heated up some of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. These are great for those of us with Diabetes 2, or for anyone who loves good rolls. The Rolls are only 35 calories and 1 carb per roll! That’s right 1 net Carb per roll! So a big thank you to Aunt Millie’s for these! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink. .

Today’s Menu: Leftover Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Long Grain/Wild Rice and Tossed Salad


Toasted a Thomas light English Muffin, Scrambled an Egg, heated up a Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Link and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. Another cold morning out there, with a wind chill at 22 degrees! For the day it’s mostly sunny and we had a high of 43 degrees, but the wind chill kept it in the 20’s. After Lunch I went to Walmart and bought a couple of bags of Salt for the driveway in case we get snow Thursday. Right now they say about 2″ but we could get as high as 6″ depending on how the storm comes through. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Long Grain/Wild Rice and Tossed Salad. That Dinner last night was so good I just reheated all the Leftovers. It was just as good as the night before! I’ve left last night’s post below for instructions and description. Take Care and Stay Safe out there!


For the Chicken; I started at Noon today. I grabbed a large Hefty Bag and added a 1/2 Pint of Buttermilk to the bag. I then added several shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and shook the bag to blend it together. I then added my Chicken Breasts and let it Marinate in the fridge until it was time to use. I used my favorite, Katie’s Best Chicken.


To prepare the Thin Sliced Chicken Breast I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed with a coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then I started heating the skillet on medium heat. Next I added a tablespoon and a half of Olive Oil Cooking Oil. As the skillet heated I got the Chicken out of the fridge and removed it from the bag of Marinade, shaking off the excess. Then I grabbed a pie pan and added Flour to it and seasoned the Flour with Paprika. Took the Chicken Breast and rolled them in the Seasoned Flour until well covered.


Added the Chicken Breasts to the heated Skillet. I cooked the Chicken for 4 minutes and then flipped them over and cooked them for 4 more minutes, until golden brown and the meat thermometer read 165 degrees. The Chicken turned out delicious! Cooked up perfect, nice crust, and love the seasoning! Served it with Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce for dipping.


For one side I prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with many Dishes.


I also had a Tossed Salad. I had a bag of Dole Greener Selection Salad. For the Salad Dressing I used Kraft Fat Free Classic Catalina Dressing along with a sprinkle of Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Pieces. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Prime Rib Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes


Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Another cloudy and gloomy day out. But a lot cooler. We had a high of 32 degrees but the wind chill made it feel like the low twenties! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. That was it for me today! It’s Leftovers tonight. For Dinner tonight I reheated the Prime Rib and made Sandwiches with it. Also heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes.


I wrapped the Prime Rib in foil and reheated it at 250 degrees. After heating it I let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing. I served it on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Buns. The Prime Rib came out Delicious! Tender and flavorful.


For a side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. I’ve left the post description of the Prime Rib from yesterday below. Take Care and Stay Safe all!








For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at GFS (Gordon Food Service). It’s a 6 1/4 lb. Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a baking pan for 3 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. Removed it from the oven when done and let it rest for 15 minutes.


The Prime Rib turned out perfect! So very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from GFS again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.

Leftover Chicken and Dumplings

Today’s Menu: Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread


For Breakfast on I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 55 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. Got the cart and yard tools out of the shed and raked the yard and cleaned up around the yard and deck. Helped Mom put away our indoor Christmas Decorations. Back to normal! For Dinner tonight Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Sides. I just couldn’t let these Leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from yesterday below for directions and descriptions. Take Care All!


My Mom is made her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner yesterday! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes. Not the best Dinner for calories and carbs but having it a couple times a year isn’t too bad!


For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.


As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!



We also opened up a quart jar of the Canned Green Beans. I love these Green Beans! And also sas the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made Mom Cornbread, Mom loves Cornbread! I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello Cup.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo


For Breakfast this morning I had a 1/2 Cake Donut and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I took Mom over to the Gordon Food Service Store. They had some good buys going on. They had Prime Rib Roast on sale that we got. Mom wants to have it for New Years. Stopped and picked up Breakfast for her at Wendy’s. Back home I relaxed for a while, we had to be at a local Walgreens at 4:00. Me and Mom both got our Virus Booster Shot. Nothing else going on. For Dinner tonight I up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I never let the Leftovers of Gumbo go to waste! Love that Gumbo! I’ve left the post from last night up for description and instructions. Take care and stay safe all!


Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, the Rice, Spices, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage makes the perfect Gumbo! Plus the leftovers are just as good if not better! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.


It’s very easy to prepare, it takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered for another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Rice, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also, she always enjoys that. Then for Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.


Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix
Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix is a flavorful foundation of long grain rice in a rich, seasoned roux with red and green bell peppers. Just add one pound of cooked chicken, smoked sausage or seafood, cut into bite size pieces and dinner is ready in just 30 minutes.
Gumbo can be prepared with your choice of 1 lb. of cooked chicken, smoked sausage or seafood, cut into bite-size pieces.

1. MIX 6 cups water and Gumbo Mix in 4-quart saucepan until well blended.
2. For Chicken or Sausage Gumbo: Stir in chicken or sausage. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 minutes or until rice is tender.
For Seafood Gumbo: Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in seafood. Cover and simmer 10 minutes longer or until rice is tender.

Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries


For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What a wild weather night here in the Midwest last night! Many lives were lost and whole towns were destroyed. We were very luck as the severe weather missed us. Our temperature dropped here before the cold front came in so we avoided the tornados. This morning at 7:00 our temps rose back up to 62 degrees and by 3:00 this afternoon it had dropped to 38 degrees! I hope the bad weather is over for everyone! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries. I kept it simple tonight using the Leftover Turkey Meatballs to make the Sub.


I’ll waste no Turkey Meatballs! I used the Meijer Turkey Meatballs leftover from the Spaghetti I made the night before. The Meatballs are good size, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 150 calories and 5 net carbs for 6 Meatballs. Plus they’re a perfect size for Hoagie or Hot Dog Buns, I used Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. For my Pasta Sauce I had used the LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and mine also, it’s got a perfect combination of a robust sauce with a hint of sweetness to it. To prepare it I took the Leftover Meatballs and Sauce and added them to a medium size sauce pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I heated on medium heat until all was heated through.


I’m using Sargento Off the Block Shredded Mozzarella Cheese as a topping for the Sub. You can use Hoagie Buns but to save on calories and carbs I used Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Hot Dog Buns. To assemble; open the Bun up, put the Meatballs and Sauce in the Bun , top it with a few shakes of McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and top it with the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Love these Meatball Sandwiches! The LaRosa’s Sauce just seems to bring the Sandwich together! Sauce is incredible, Turkey Meatballs flavorful and meaty, and the Mozzarella is perfect with Pasta and Sauces.



I also prepared some Ore Ida Fries with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Steak Fries


For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 28 degrees this morning. For the day it was sunny, windy, and a high of 42 degrees. After Mom had Breakfast I took her over to pick her car up from the auto shop. Back home I had to get the cart out of the shed. I first raked the backyard then I had put some more of the Rid Mole down. They are building in a field behind us and it’s driving all the moles into everyone’s backyards. I’m beat, relaxed the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight I heated up the leftovers from last night. We had more than enough Pulled Pork leftover for more Sandwiches. So it’s a Pork Boston Butt! Tonight it’s Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ Baked Fries. I’ve last night’s post for description and ingredients. Enjoy and Stay Safe Everyone!


I purchased the Pork Boston Butt Roast on sale at Meijer the other day. Meijer had them on sale and had a huge selection of them. I used the Crock Pot to prepare it. I’ll need the following; Pork Boston Butt Roast, 1/4 cup of Water, JB’s Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub, and JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce.


I applied the Rub all over Pork Shoulder and rubbed it in. Next I lined my Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Plastic Bag Liner and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. Love these Crock Pot Liners, makes for an easy cleanup! The Roast was just over 16 pounds and I really didn’t have room for it in the Fridge so I just went ahead and heated the Crock Pot up on low heat. When heated, I added the Roast. Covered and cooked on High for 1 hour. Turned it to Low and cooked 7 to 9 hours longer, until fall apart tender.


Removed the Roast with the Bear Claws into a bowl. A word about these Bear Claws; I love these things to remove meat and roasts from whatever you’re cooking it in on to a plate. Word of caution though, these things are very sharp so be careful with them. I used the bear Claws to Shred the Pork. I normally re add to the Crock Pot with BBQ Sauce but Mom just wanted to add the BBQ Sauce to her Sandwich so we did it that way. I needed the Crock Pot anyway to cook the other 1/2 of the Boston Butt. It was too big to cook it all at once so I cooked the 1/2 and took it out later tonight. We are using JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce for our BBQ Sauce. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, with extra BBQ Sauce on the side. Nothing but a winning Pork Butt Dish! So tender and seasoned just right with Rub and BBQ Sauce. A lot of leftovers for some delicious Sandwiches and Meals the rest of the week! I was so delicious!



I also baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.






Crock Pot BBQ Pork Shoulder or Boston Butt

2 – Place the meat in the slow cooker with water.

3 – Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour. Turn to LOW and cook 7 to 9 hours longer, until very tender. Remove roast and discard fat and juices. Chop or shred the pork; return to slow cooker.
