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

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart English Muffin. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a cool Fall morning out there, 44 degrees and windy. The rain stopped and the skies cleared. For the Afternoon it was sunny and 58 degrees. I took Mom to her Treatment Appointment then back home to a yard full of leaves. Tis the Fall Season! My Pepper Plants are still producing like crazy, everyone in the neighborhood has plenty of Green Bell Peppers. Cool Fall Day deserves Chili, 3 Bean Turkey Chili! That was my last container in the freezer. Which means I’ll be cooking up a new batch soon. Below I left the original post from last night for recipe directions and ingredients. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

I love making a batch of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili! To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey, 2 – 1lb. packages. 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, a tablespoon of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, 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),4 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 tsp Ground Anchio Chile Pepper, 2 tsp Ground Paprika, 1 Tbs. Ground Chile Seasoning, 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, 2Tbsps Jif Smooth Peanut Butter, 1 Tbsp of Cilantro Leaves 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 Ground Turkey and Bean Mix last night and had it in the fridge. 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 aside and mixed my Beans. I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed.

 

This morning I turned the Slow Cooker on Low, sprayed the cooker liner with Pam Non Stick Spray, and added a 1/2 cup of Water to it. Let heat for about 20 minutes and I added everything to the Crock Pot. I’ll be cooking my Chili for 6 – 7 hours. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, 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 meals , can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day! The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. For Dessert latera Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Save your scraps…..

Don’t throw out those vegetable peels or meat cuttings, they can be incredibly useful! You can freeze them in order to make stock for soups, chili and stews. If you’re not a fan of making your own stock, save those peelings for the compost heap. Every little bit of recycling helps the planet! SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!

Use those Leftover Vegetables…..

Use leftover vegetables to make into patties. Mash vegetables together, add parsley, butter and your favorite seasonings, then fry. With things so expensive this is a great way to get the most of your leftover vegetables.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees and 7unny out, high humidity. Well my morning didn’t start off very good. I went out at 7:10 this morning to get the paper. I wasn’t thinking and started to pick the paper up while facing downhill, bad choice. The chair lunged forward and I cam out of the chair and rolled down the hill a bit. My neighbor seen it and called 911 and the came out and helped me back up to the chair. I had a lot of blood from my arm, elbow and knee. My Knee was busted real good. But they patched me up and I was almost fine. I’m really sore right now though. Dumb mistake on my part, I know better than to do that! Anyway to sore to put out a lot of effort so it’s Leftovers tonight! For my Dinner tonight I reheat the Leftover Shrimp and Tukey Sausage Gumbo from the other night. I’ve left the original post from the other night for description. Take Care and Stay Safe, not like me!

 

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 also. I love this Gumbo! Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

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.

STOVE TOP DIRECTIONS
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.

Back home I trimmed some vines for an elderly neighbor of ours. They started growing all over her driveway. Then I sprayed for weeds at our house and a couple of neighbors.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another hot and humid day out there. We have a high of 88 degrees and the humidity almost as high. Rain showers by late afternoon. A heavy thunderstorm moved in late yesterday. Heavy rain and strong winds. As the storm passed us it got worse, a tornado and it caused a lot of damage to a County next to ours. So after my Tea I watered the Tomato and Pepper Plants. After Lunch I took a friend to a local Home Depot. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet that I had purchased from Meijer the other day. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheat the broiler. Pat the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Place skin side down on a broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Dish! I also heated up the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans from last night. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites for sure! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. – Wikipedia

Rainbow trout is packed with protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as potassium – all of which can help to manage high blood pressure, improve muscle strength and boost metabolism. Rainbow trout are loaded with phosphorus, and a good source of Vitamins B6, B12, pantothenic acid, and selenium.

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Today’s Menu: Hickory Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my morning off. 89 degrees, humid, and mostly sunny outside. Not a comfortable day out. But I was in all day. I had those Phantom Pains hit me about 1:00 last night and they didn’t stop till about 11:00 this morning. So I spent the day catching up with some sleep and relaxing. For Dinner tonight I had a Hickory Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich.

 

I had bought the Kentucky Legend Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Quarter Ham at Meijer. I’ve baked a few of these now and really enjoy them.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the Kentucky Legend Ham from the packaging and place it in a baking dish that’s at least 2 inches deep. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Crimp the edges of the foil tightly over the pan edges to prevent steam from escaping. Place the baking dish into the oven and heat the Ham until a meat thermometer shows an internal temperature of at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The amount of time this takes depends on the size and shape of the ham. Mine took 80 minutes. When the Ham is heated through, remove the baking pan from the oven. Leave the foil on the pan for 15 minutes to rest the meat before removing it and carving.

 

I’m using Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread and I’ll need Emeril’s New York Deli Style Mustard, Boar’s Head Imported Switzerland Swiss Cheese. I assembled my Sandwich, Ham, French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, served on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. What a Sandwich! The Ham is delicious and moist. Excellent Ham Sandwich! Love them leftovers! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Hickory Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my morning off. Heavy rain overnight with light rain in the morning. 77 degrees with passing rain showers for the day. After my Tea I went to Kroger. On my way there all the gas stations were at $5.09 a gallon for gas!! I go to Kroger to save gas because it’s only 3 miles from the house. Then you go to the store and you are being charged 25% or more higher prices for your groceries! I hope the Whitehouse is proud of what they are doing to our Country! I’ll stop at that. On the way back I stopped and topped off the gas. Just over 1/4 of tank, $25..00! I’m going home and staying at home. Take Care and Stay Safe All! For Dinner tonight I had a Leftover Hickory Smoked Ham and Swiss Sandwich.

 

I bought the Kentucky Legend Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Quarter Ham at Walmart the other day. I’ve baked a few of these now and  really enjoy them.

Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I heated up a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 82 degrees, humid with rain and thunderstorms from time to time. We had to have our cable worked on this morning. The picture kept freezing up and I would have to reset 3 boxes. Hopefully they fixed the problem! Got out between the storms and cleaned off the deck and driveway. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Good job Meijer!

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! Microwave for 6 minutes total, and done! Just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans!  I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a Dole Peach Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cube Steak
Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.
