Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast on this cold and snowy Thursday morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside a high of 87 degrees with rain and thunderstorms on and off all day. Well we finally can get out again without worry from the Chinese Covid Virus and can’t even enjoy it for the Cicadas and heat and humidity! No Breaks lately! So for Dinner tonight my Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! I guess if you can’t get out Chicken and Dumplings are the way to go! 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 1 time every 4 months or so doesn’t hurt.

 

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!

 

As 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its 26 degrees, cloudy, windy, with a wind chill in the low teens. We have another 3-4 inches that came down late yesterday and early morning. So I spent a big part of the day salting and shoveling the driveway again.

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of All Bran Wheat Flakes along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A lot of rain and high winds overnight into the morning hours before easing up. For the afternoon it started in the 50’s but dropped to the 40’s as the day went on. Did a load of laundry and then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. Not much else to do today. So its a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

Buffalo Bone-In Ribeye Steak w/ Baked Potato and Roasted Asparagus

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Bone-In Ribeye Steak w/ Baked Potato and Roasted Asparagus

 

 

For Breakfast I had a Poached Egg, a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather, is was down right Chilly out yesterday but today its sunny and 76 degrees out. After Breakfast went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. After Lunch I went with a High School friend of mine and we went to the Hospital to spend some time with another old classmate of ours. He had a heart transplant last week. He’s doing real good with all the tests coming back positive! So good news there. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Bone-In Ribeye Steak w/ Baked Potato and Roasted Asparagus.

 

 

 

I had purchased a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo – Bone – In Ribeye Steaks (Cowboy Steak) 16oz. while they were on sale a couple of weeks ago. I had them in the freezer and I took one out and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I’ll need; Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and a Grinder of Peppercorn Medley and Dried Rosemary.

 

 

 

 

 

I first turned the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got the large Cat Iron Skillet out and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to it. Heated the Skillet on medium. As that was heating up I Seasoned the Ribeye with a rub of the Extra Light Olive Oil, seasoned with the Sea Salt and peppercorn Medley Grinders, and the Dried Rosemary. Let it sit until the Skillet was fully heated. When ready I added the Ribeye. I cooked it 2 minutes per side and then into the oven. I cooked it for 4 minutes and then turned it over to the other side and continued to cook it for minutes. Checked it with the Meat thermometer and had it at 147 degrees, perfect temperature.

 

 

 

 

The Ribeye came out a perfect medium rare! This has to be Big Boss of Ribeyes! Love cooking Steak with Bone – In. The Steak is so tender and moist, it cuts so easy! Wild Idea Buffalo as always just incredible! The Steak was 16 oz. so plenty of leftovers for Breakfast or Lunch tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato for a side with the Oysters. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For another side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of CrumbledBacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

At the last minute I also made some Fried Cornbread Cakes (Johnny Cakes). To prepare them all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WILD IDEA BUFFALO – BONE-IN RIBEYE STEAK (COWBOY STEAK) 16 OZ.

The ribeye cap and bone add the extra richness to this classic cut. Our bone-in ribeyes make for a perfect presentation, and luckily they aren’t just for cowboys. Our bone-in ribeye was a featured winner of the 2012 Cooking Light Artisan Products Award. Cut to 16 oz. each.

Today’s Menu: Beef Stew w/ Potatoes, Carrots, and Corn Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning a Poached Egg, 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its beautiful! Sunny and 81 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Stopped by at the ATM and filled Mom’s Car up with gas. Then later took her car up to be washed. After Lunch did a couple of loads of laundry. Then got the cart out and did some yard work. Nice to be out in sunshine! For Dinner tonight its Beef Stew w/ Potatoes, Carrots, and Corn Bread.

 

 

 

I normally don’t have Beef but Mom wanted to make some Beef Stew. I had purchased a Chuck Roast for her at Meijer along with Carrots and Red Potatoes. I gave her hand and we cooked everything in the Crock Pot. She made some Cornbread later on to go with the meal. Everything was so delicious. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Mango Snapple to drink. Kept the post short today as Mom was the cook. And you know everything is better when Mom does it! Later!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

To start my morning off I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I really enjoy the Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, they Scramble up perfect and are only 25 calories per serving (1 serving is 1/4 cup which is equal to 1 Egg) Outside had a couple of showers with a high of 83 degrees, and humid. Before the showers moved in later in the day I raked the front and side yard. Lot of leaves already. Then got the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. That was about my day today. For Dinner tonight Leftovers!

No way could I let these Chicken and Dumpling leftovers go to waste! I know the carbs and calories are bit higher than I like but just had to have them one more time! I had a light Breakfast and just a 1/2 an Apple for Lunch to even up everything a bit. I’ve left the original post from last night below for recipe directions.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Amish 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.

 

 

 

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Skinles 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. I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is fine!

 

 

 

 

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made the 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!

Today’s Menu; Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy with rain later in the afternoon, high of 90 degrees. Did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning. Then spent most of the afternoon writing an appeal letter to my insurance over my policy increase and balance of over $7,000. My insurance has been one big screw up! All I can do is wait and see what happens with the Appeal. On top of that I had to go the Dentist, which I can’t stand doing. But had no choice I’ve got a cavity. More on that later. Anyway a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread

 

Crappie and Hash Browns 008
Very cool out this morning. After I had a light breakfast I went to McDonald’s for mOm and Dad and brought back their breakfast for them before they went to Church. It was in the 30’s here this morning. For the day plenty of sunshine and a high in the low 50’s. Not much going on today so it was the easy chair, remote, and NFL Football for the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread. * I had Hashbrowns instead of the Potato Pancakes.

 

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
It’s been too long between Crappie Dinners! So I got in the freezer and grabbed the last three bags of Okeechobee Crappie, or Specks as they call them in Florida, and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To start I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side. As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie, especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie. That is the last bags of Crappie in the freezer, hopefully my cousins will bring me some more in March!

 

 

Haddock Potato Pancakes 001

To go with the Crappie I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). I wanted Hashbrowns instead of the Potato Pancakes. I used Simply Potatoes Hashbrowns.  Then I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Green Beans go well with any meal as far as I’m concerned. Green Beans was my favorite Vegetable growing up even.

 

 

 

I also baked a small skillet of Martha White Cornbread. Cornbread is something I think I could eat every meal. chili and cornbread 003Nothing better than hot slice of Cornbread 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. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
