Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 19 degrees out there this morning. We had a high of 36 degrees and sunny. I had to be at Kroger at 10:30 to pick up my order. I just order on line and they pull the order. Then I pick it up, they bring it to the car. I still prefer going myself but when I need something from Kroger I’m going to try this for a while. Well Mom had no side effects from her 1st Covid Shot. She had the Pfizer Vaccine which seems to be the better one. Did a load of laundry and did some cleaning in the shed and driveway. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, one of my favorites! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

As I said I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack tonight I’m having a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to get the paper and the wind was blowing and it was 26 degrees! One chilly morning. For the day windy, mostly sunny and 45 degrees. The yard is full of leaves and branches from the strong winds we’ve had. It wouldn’t do much good to rake and clean the yard until this wind dies down. Did a few chores around the hose and that was it for the day. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, one of my favorites! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start the morning off I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I used Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Patties, a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar, and served it all on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very good Breakfast to start the day! Mostly sunny and 52 degrees out today, still a bit windy. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later I got my face cover on and got the cart out of the shed and took a quick ride around the neighborhood. I only saw 2 people out, like the other day. They delivered our bags of Wood Chips for the flower beds today. It just has to dry out so we can get them spread in the flower beds. I just hope this virus finally runs its course or they come up with a vaccine. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

Really looking forward to this meal tonight! So for Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo. Using the Zatrain’s Gumbo Mix, Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, and a bag of Meijer Frozen Shrimp (Large Size). Add all together and I’ve one Delicious Meal coming!

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I got a large saucepan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then added 6 cups of Water, bite sized sliced 1 1/2 Sausages of the Butterball Smoked Turkey Sausage, and the Gumbo Mix. Mixed until well blended together. I brought it to a boil; covered and simmered for 25 minutes.

 

 

 

 

Next as the Gumbo was cooking I got the Shrimp out of the fridge washed then and let then drain in a colander. Then with 15 minutes of cooking time left I added the Shrimp to the Gumbo, stirring again until well mixed. Continued for 15 minutes. Removed the pot from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

 

 

 

 

This made one excellent Gumbo Dish! The Mix itself was flavored perfect, spicy but not over powering. Then with the added Sausage and Shrimp, it just capped everything off! I added a few shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to the Dish also. Lots of delicious leftovers for tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! For Dessert later a Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZATARAIN’S® GUMBO MIX WITH RICE
In New Orleans, there are as many different varieties of gumbo as there are people who make it. Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice is a flavorful foundation, making it easy to create classics like shrimp and okra or chicken and sausage gumbo – or to invent a new signature gumbo of your own!

Gumbo is the quintessential dish of New Orleans, a city of diverse influences that formed a new culture greater than the sum of its parts. Those same influences are reflected in every bowl of gumbo. The dish is a rich and flavorful melting pot, just like its hometown.

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.

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS
1. MIX 6 cups water and Gumbo Mix in 4-quart microwavable bowl until well blended.
2. For Chicken or Sausage Gumbo: Stir in chicken or sausage. Cover. Microwave on HIGH 30 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally.

I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a freeze warning for this morning, 29 degrees out. 52 degrees and cloudy with showers moving in late. My Sinuses have let up a little so I was able to function better! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later on I got the vacuum out and attached the long hose to it. Then I went around to all the heating vents and removed them from the floor. I then got the sweeper and used the long hose to vacuum the dust out of them. I was amazed at all the dust that came out of the vents. I’ll have to start doing this more often. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 37 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. After I had my Tea I headed out to the Grocery Store. I first went to Kroger for Mom and then on to Meijer for a few items. Back home cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Spent the rest of the day watching NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I didn’t want the leftovers to go to waste from Thursday night’s Dinner so I reheat the Meatball Pasta Bake. Just as good the 2nd time! I left the original post from the other night for directions and description. Enjoy!

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 425 degrees. To prepare it was easy! I used the Leftover Meijer Turkey Meatballs in the LaRosa’s Sauce. I put those in a sauce pan and reheated them on medium low, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Meatballs and Sauce was heating I made my Pasta. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it 3/4 full of water, added the Salt to the water. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and stirred; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. I removed the Pasta just before it was done. It will finish in the oven without getting over cooked. Drain well.

 

 

 

I added the Pasta to casserole glass dish. Reseason with the Salt and added the Oregano and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Stirred until well mixed. Next I added Meatballs and Sauce and stirred until the Pasta was well coated with the Sauce and the Meatballs mixed in.

 

 

 

Topped everything with the Mozzarella Cheese and Oregano. Popped it in the preheated oven. and baked for about 20 minutes. I really wanted all those flavors to marry together. Before removing from the oven I switched it on to the broiler and left it in the oven another 3 minutes to get the Cheese a little brown on top. Done and ready to serve!

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl, I topped it with a sprinkle of the Grated Parmesan Cheese. One delicious dish! By making extra Meatballs in Sauce I got 2 delicious meals out of it. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish, especially Pasta Dishes!

Today’s Menu: Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 3 slices of Glier’s Turkey Goetta, fried 1 medium Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Finally found the Glier’s Turkey Goetta on my last visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love Goetta! Cloudy with rain showers late in the afternoon, high of 44 degrees. Went to Kroger for Mom after Breakfast. When I got to Kroger it was busy but the time I left it was packed. I’ll be glad when the Holidays are over and stores get back to normal. Gave Mom a hand in making Chocolate Fudge, Buckeyes, and Chex Mix. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 425 degrees. To prepare it was easy! I used the Leftover Meijer Turkey Meatballs in the LaRosa’s Sauce. I put those in a sauce pan and reheated them on medium low, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Meatballs and Sauce was heating I made my Pasta. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it 3/4 full of water, added the Salt to the water. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and stirred; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. I removed the Pasta just before it was done. It will finish in the oven without getting over cooked. Drain well.

 

 

 

 

I added the Pasta to casserole glass dish. Season again with the Salt and added the Oregano and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Stirred until well mixed. Next I added Meatballs and Sauce and stirred until the Pasta was well coated with the Sauce and the Meatballs mixed in.

 

 

 

 

 

Topped everything with the Mozzarella Cheese and Oregano. Popped it in the preheated oven. and baked for about 20 minutes. I really wanted all those flavors to marry together. Before removing from the oven I switched it on to the broiler and left it in the oven another 3 minutes to get the Cheese a little brown on top. Done and ready to serve!

 

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl, I topped it with a sprinkle of the Grated Parmesan Cheese. One delicious dish! By making extra Meatballs in Sauce I got 2 delicious meals out of it. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish, especially Pasta Dishes! This made one excellent Dish. The Penne Rigate Pasta along with Turkey Meatballs, Sauce, and the Mozzarella Cheese all come together to make this dish so delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 42 degrees outside today. I had to go to Meijer to pick up a few things for Mom and myself and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home got the cart out of the shed and raked the back yard. We have a Mole problem in the backyards of most of the homes on our side of street. I ordered some Mole Stop off Amazon, see if that works! For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

 

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

 

As I said I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert tonight a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
