Today’s Menu: Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese and a Side of Oyster Crackers w/ Hot Dog with Cheese and Mustard

 

 

Skyline Chili Spaghetti  Hot dog 003
Merry Christmas Eve everyone! It’s been an almost bitter cold day around here most of the day. This morning the wind chill had it around 9 degrees, far cry from our mid 50’s just a or so ago. Ran some errands for Mom, who is almost at full strength again. Then spent most of the afternoon baking some Pumpkin Walnut and Banana Walnut Bread. Baked 12 mini loaves and delivered them to several neighbors. Love Christmas time! For dinner tonight it was a Skyline Chili inspired dinner. I prepared a Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Hot Dog with Cheese and Mustard.

 

 

 

I used Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti. They sell it packaged for the microwave, a bit smaller size than what you get at a Skyline but just right for those still watching calories and carbs. It comes with Spaghetti topped with Skyline Chili. I added a few dashes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and Cheese to make it a 3 Way and used Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheese. The Chili Spaghetti is 270 calories and 20 carbs.

Then I also prepared an Oscar Mayer Extra Lean Turkey Franks, my new choice of Hot Dogs. Just boiled them for 5 minutes and they were ready. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Yellow Mustard and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. For a dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo w/ Cornbread

Shrimp Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo 005

 
Another chilly morning, 30 degrees, that led to a sunny but chilly Autumn Day. It was computer clean up day today. Deleted some old stuff that I had saved and ran all the scans and clean ups. For dinner, the comfort food keeps coming, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo w/ Cornbread.

 

 

 

I had a bag of Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp and a package of Butterball Hardwood Smoked Sausage in the freezer so I laid both out in the fridge to thaw overnight. For the Gumbo stock I used my favorite, the Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit. So easy to prepare and just flat out delicious! The Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit contains a packet that contains the Rice, Vegetables, Seasoning, and Roux Mix. I add the Butterball Hardwood Smoke Turkey Sausage (14 oz. Package), Jumbo Shrimp (1 lb. Package), Water, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and a bit of added Sea Salt.

 

Cornbread
T o prepare it; take a 4-5 Quart pot, add 6 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and bring it to a boil. Add the Luzianne Gumbo, while stirring. Empty half of the Red Pepper Packet into the Gumbo. Put remainder aside. Caution with this stuff it is HOT! Reduce the Heat , Cover and simmer for 18 minutes. Meanwhile rinse the Shrimp off and in a medium skillet Brown the Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and slice into smaller pieces. Taste, and if desired, add remaining Red Pepper from packet and Sea Salt. Add the Shrimp and Sausage Cover and continue to simmer for 7 more minutes. The aroma is incredible and the taste is as well! Comfort Food to the Max! I also made a small cast iron skillet of Cornbread. A perfect choice to absorb that Roux! I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, as usual. Serve in a bowl, add Frank’s Red Hot Sauce if you desire, with a slice of Cornbread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Red Beans and Rice

Smoked Turkey and Beans Rice 005

 

It was partly sunny out and a little higher temperature at 82 degrees. Spent part the afternoon at the doctor’s office, trying to get Dad healthy with the breathing being no better. At 92 years old though it’s tough. in the kitchen front, still wishing you could find more single serve of grocery items. I freeze what I can of the extra but you can only freeze so much and the rest is in the garbage, such a waste. Maybe one day they’ll have more options. For dinner tonight a Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Red Beans and Rice along with a slice of Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

i used my favorite Smoked Turkey Sausage, Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. For me this is a perfect Smoked Turkey Sausage; fantastic flavor, great seasoning, and cooks up just right. To prepare it I pan fried it in a medium size skillet. Just sprayed the skillet with Pam and fried them on medium heat about 12 minutes, turning the sausages frequently until done. When done I sliced 1 1/2 of the two sausages up into quarter size pieces and set aside. Saved 1/2 of one of the sausages and I’m going to have it for lunch tomorrow.

 

Smoked Turkey and Beans Rice 002

Then for the Red Beans and Rice I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice. Esay way to have some excellent Red Beans and Rice, plus it’s Reduced Sodium. If you love Red Beans and Rice you’ll love this! To prepare; In a 2 quart saucepan, combine 2 3/4 cups water, 2 tablespoons olive oil or margarine and Zatarain’s Black Beans and Rice. Stir well and bring to boil. Stir, reduce heat, cover and simmer over Low heat for 25 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Stir and serve. Black Beans and Rice will be saucy. Before serving this I added the sliced Smoked Turkey Sausage and a few shakes of the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, too good! I also had a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. One delicious meal! For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Chili Turkey Dogs3Bean Chili Turkey Franks 004

 

 

 

This morning was our first day in the 30’s, 38 degrees, in quite sometime. It was 38 but it felt good out this morning, I love the Fall! Back into the 80’s next week though. What better to have a crisp sunny day while watching a day of College Football than Cheese Coneys, Buffalo Chili Turkey Dogs.

 

 

I used the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili I had leftover from the other night for the Chili, I had a lot leftover so most of it went to the freezer. I then used Oscar Mayer Extra Lean Turkey Franks, my new choice of Hot Dogs. I warmed the Chili up and boiled my Turkey Franks, about 5 minutes in boiling water. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun, topped with French’s Yellow Mustard, the Buffalo Chili, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. Now that’s a Chili Dog!! Great taste in every bite as the 5 ingredients all come together! To add a little crunch I had a half serving of Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later I had a bowl of sliced up some fresh Peaches I had bought earlier in the week.
