Today’s Menu: Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 85 degrees outside. After Lunch a High School friend of mine came over and he helped me do some work on my Hoveround. I had to replace the whole joy stick component. And you might know we had to dis assemble half the chair to change it! It took most of the afternoon but we finally got changed. I’m so lucky to have a good friend like him! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

I had picked up a box of Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce at Meijer and had it in the freezer. I purchased the Large Size, about 2 1/2 servings. I’m also baking a few slices of the New York Bakery Texas Toast – Lite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it s very easy. It comes frozen and to prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Leave the film on tray, but do not vent. Place the tray on a baking sheet on the center rack of the oven. Cook 56 Minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Let stand 1 Minute and Dinner is ready. I really enjoy this Lasagna! Plenty of Sauce and Meat and the Noodles are good size and tender. One easy way to have a Lasagna Dinner! The Lasagna is 260 calories and 25 net carbs per serving.

 

 

 

 


I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. For dinner tonight I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs w/ Light Texas Toast. Mostly sunny and 80 degrees out, low humidity again! I had to wear a surgical mask when outside today as the ragweed count was sky high! Got the cart, rake, and leaf blower out of the shed and got some yard work done. I raked a neighbors yard for them. They are an older couple and his wife has been in rehab and he’s been there with her most of the day. So I got that done for him. Everything done I took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

 

 

Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, we love Spaghetti and Meatballs! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. I bought a bag of these a few weeks ago for the first time. I’ve always used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs but I can no longer find them at any of the stores. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs).

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking them 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 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 about 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

 

 

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 my New York Bakery Light Texas Toast.

 

 

 

 

To serve I used a bowl and made a bed with Spaghetti. added a little Morton’s Lite Salt and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I then topped with Sauce and Meatballs. Wow these Turkey Meatballs are so good. I’ve found a new Turkey Meatball to use! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam Love that Smucker’s Jam! Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 85 degrees out there today. Spent most of the day at the car repair shop. One of my wipers had stripped out and I had to have it replaced. Then had the tires rotated and had my brakes checked. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Lite).

 

 

 

 

 

Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast, one of my favorite trios of Food! As usual I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained Oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

 

 

 

Next, heat the Extra Light Olive Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some McCormick’s Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally I baked a slice of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. Love having the trio of Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and a baked slice of Texas Toast (Lite)! Really enjoyed Dinner. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe:

2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil

Seafood Cocktail Sauce, optional

Preparation:

Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.

1 – Dip drained oysters in flour, then beaten eggs, shake off excess, and in panko crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: An easy way to coat the oysters with the panko crumbs is to place the crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

2 – Heat canola oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.

3 – Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately.

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees, partly cloudy, and more humid outside today. I took Mom’s car over to the shop and had the tires rotated, new wiper blades, and the oil changed. Back home did a load of laundry and that was it for the day. Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mom loves Ribs so I always try to have them from time to time for her. I purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday and couldn’t wait to have them! Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

 

 

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Half and Half Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

Today’s Menu: Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried a couple Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain, 90 degrees, humid, and a very high Pollen count out there today. I can’t take that high Pollen count so it was indoors with the A/C on all day. My head was pounding all day with my allergies. So not a lot going on today. For Dinner tonight its Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

 

 


We love these Chopped Bison Steaks from SayersBrook Bison Ranch! I had them in the freezer so I grabbed a package of 2 of it and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. 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. 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 8 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. Just 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 


I also 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 New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, One delicious meal tonight. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: 8 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside had a shower early this morning and one later on in the afternoon. Partly cloudy, humid, and 89 degrees. our yard is like a magnet for leaves and limbs. I had to get the rake out and rake the front and side yards. Way to early in the year to be raking! Pretty quiet Memorial Day Weekend around here. My neighbor across the street was out mowing his lawn and doing some raking also. We combined the piles of leaves and gave each other a hand in picking them up. I told you it was quiet out! For Dinner tonight I prepared a 8 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast Light.

 

 

 

 

I just got my order in from Wild Idea Buffalo. It came in a couple of days ago. I had a Buffalo Burger yesterday and having the Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 8 oz. for Dinner tonight. I purchased the Buffalo Burger Patties, Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 8 oz., a 8 oz. Flat Iron Buffalo Steak, (2) Fine Cut Sirloin Steak 6 oz., (2) Petite Top Sirloin Steak 5 oz., and a Teres Major Filet – Teres Major Filet 6 oz. There’s some good eating ahead!

 

 

 

 

 

I prepared one of the Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Top Sirloin Steak tonight. I had it in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. So easy to prepare these. I start by rubbing a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on it and then season it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I pan fried in a medium size skillet. I added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the pan and preheated the skillet on medium heat, added the Steak and fried it about 4 minutes per side. I topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms that I prepared. Love the combo of Steak and Mushrooms! Came out a perfect Medium Rare, nice char on the outside with a pink moist and juicy center. You just can’t beat the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks.The Steak was nice size so with the leftovers I’ll have Steak and Eggs in the morning for Breakfast. Topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

To go with the Steak I prepared a Baked Potato. Served the Potato Seasoned with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Love them Potatoes! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. I think a Buffalo Steak along with a Baked Potato and Texas Toast has to be my favorite Steak Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Dredge drained Oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

 

 

 

 

Next, heat the Extra Light Olive Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. They’re so delicious, golden brown, and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally I baked a slice of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Bison Chopped Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Slow Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg Beater’s Egg White folded Egg, lightly fried up 4 slices of thin cut Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, got a slice of Sargento Ultra thin Swiss Cheese, and toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. And I had my Breakfast Sandwich, Egg White, Ham, and Swiss Cheese on English Muffin! Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy with a passing shower, 82 degrees outside today. I had to go to Kroger for a couple of items then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home after Lunch I got the cart out and did a few things around the yard. Then took the cart around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bison Chopped Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Slow Roasted Potatoes and Carrots.

 

 

 

For Dinner tonight it’s one of my favorites, SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. I 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. Thank you SayersBrook Bison Ranch!

 

 

 

I topped the Chopped Steak with some A-1 Sauce Thick/Hardy. Also cooked up some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a side I prepared some Slow Roasted Potatoes and Carrots. I came across how delicious these are by way of another Dinner. A while back I helped Mom prepare a Crock Pot Beef Stew w/ Potatoes and Carrots. To prepare it I used a packet of McCormick Beef Stew Mix, which gave those Potatoes and Carrots incredible flavor. So I thought why not use the Stew Mix to Slow Roast the Potatoes and Carrots as a side dish. Glad I did!

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I peeled and quartered some medium size Red Potatoes. Next I had bought a bag of Whole Carrots. I washed them off and cut the Carrots into quarters. Got out my small Dutch Oven. Added a 3 cups of water and mixed the packet of Stew Mix in it and turned it on. Then its Put a Lid on it and Forget it! I put them on late this morning and let them cook until it was time to eat. They turned out so delicious! Just incredible flavor. I’ll be using this as a side dish again, very soon!

 

 

 

 

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
