Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Storing Mushrooms……………………

Store mushrooms in original packaging or in a porous paper bag for prolonged shelf life. Some mushrooms may keep for up to one week in the refrigerator. Fresh mushrooms should never be frozen, but frozen sautéed mushrooms will keep for up to one month.

Cooking concentrates their woodsy flavor and aroma, making them a natural for a variety of recipes. Baked, sauteed, stuffed, in stews and sauces, atop pizza, or slathered on a steak, their rich taste is distinctive and comforting. Love those Mushrooms!

Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Baked Potato

Today’s Menu: Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Baked Potato

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Fried Egg Sunny Side Up, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 46 degrees and partly cloudy out today. Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. With everything done I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Baked Potato.

 

 

For Dinner tonight it’s Mom’s favorite Meal, SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. We love this Chopped Steak! To start I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare it I’ll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, McCormick Crushed Rosemary, and McCormick Thyme Leaves (all seasoning to taste). I got the Cast Iron Skillet out to prepare it. I first sprayed it with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the pan was heated I added the Chopped Steak. I cooked each side 2 minutes.Then finished it in the oven, at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. It cooked up beautifully, perfect medium rare! Had a nice little char on the outside and moist and juicy inside. These are so tender you could slice them with a spoon and have an excellent taste to them. Another very good item from SayersBrook Ranch! I topped the Chopped Steak with some A-1 Sauce Thick/Hardy. Also cooked up some Sauteed Mushrooms.

For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Garlic Texas Toast Light. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

If you like the flavor of the sirloin, love the Bison Burger but want to take it up a notch, then the Chopped Sirloin Steak is for you! 4 lbs (4 packages each with 2-8oz chopped sirloin steaks).
Great flavor of the sirloin but also extremely tender and juicy.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside today the morning started out a cold 12 degrees. We had a high of 40 degrees and sunny for the afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by the ATM, got gas, and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight I’m having the Leftover Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread.

Having the leftovers from last night’s Dinner, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread. I never let these leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post fro last night for recipe description and directions. Take care all!

I Love this Pizza Pasta from Banquet and haven’t had it in a while! This is one of my favorite boxed foods, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. Nothing like a quick, easy and delicious comfort food. I can only find it at Walmart or online now.

 

 

 

Anyway it’s got two of my favorites in it, Pasta and Pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta. I also added a few slices of Turkey Pepperoni and sliced Portabello Mushrooms to the mix. For the preparation you can bake it or prepare it on the stove top, which is how I prepared it. Add 1 cup of water, stir and mix, and simmer and you have your dinner! This came out fantastic! Really had a good Pizza flavor to it and excellent Sauce! The Sauce with the Mushrooms, Sausage, and Pepperoni provides the great flavoring. Easily prepared and makes a hearty and delicious meal. I know it’s a boxed meal, I can’t help it. It’s always been a favorite of mine since the first time I tried it!

Along with the Pizza Pasta I also prepared some Baked Cheesy Bread. I’ll be using Healthy Life Sour Dough Bread, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Just Butter the Bread and add your Cheese on top. Then bake on 400 degrees until the Bread is toasted and Cheese is melted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta

When only comfort food will do, Banquet Homestyle Bakes are the perfect choice. Each comes complete with everything you need to make a delicious and hearty straight-from-the-oven meal. So you’ll spend less time worrying about your meal—and more time enjoying it.

*Pepperoni and sausage included

1. Stir Together Can of Sauce and 1 Cup Hot Water In Medium Skillet.
