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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 83 degrees, rain and thunderstorms and humid outside. We had heavy rains on and off all day. So today was house cleaning day, dusted and ran the vacuum. Later I cleaned our ceiling fans off. Did a few more things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast, always one of my favorite meals! 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 the frying pan. Remove from the 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 Tartar 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 Texas Toast. Love having the trio of Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and a baked slice of Texas Toast! I always enjoy this Dinner. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees, hazy sunshine and humid out today. I had no clue on what to have for Dinner so I headed to Kroger up the road from us to see if I could find something. Back home I did some front and side yard clean up. Raked up some paint shavings and wood shavings from the deck construction. For Dinner tonight its Baked Chicken Wings w/ Baked Fries and Light Texas Toast.

 

When I went to Kroger I couldn’t find anything that looked good. So I was leaving I went by the frozen foods and it happened, The Chicken Wings called out to me! And who am I not to answer the call of the Chicken Wing! So Kroger Oven Roasted Chicken Wings, it is for Dinner. I started by heating the oven on 425 degrees F., the same temperature I’ll need for my Fries and Texas Toast. I took a small Baking Sheet and lined it with foil. Then sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Spread the Wings out across the sheet and baked them for 33 minutes, turning them once after 17 minutes. I love Wings, and these are excellent Wings! Served them with Dipping Sauces of Hidden Valley Buffalo/Ranch Dressing and Litehouse Light Blue Cheese Dressing.

 

With the oven already heated I baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup.

 

 

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

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

 

To start this morning off I prepared a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees and partly cloudy out today, also a bit humid out. I hate the humidity! Did a couple of loads of laundry . Then took out the old furnace filter and put in a new one. Later I got the cart out of the shed and went to the back yard in it. We are still having Mole problems so I had to use some Mole Bait to try to stop them. They’ve ruined a few back yards around here. Anyway for Dinner tonight I prepared a Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light).

 

We had not had this for quite some time. So I bought a box of it in my pick-up order from Kroger yesterday. 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. I thought we were out of the Texas Toast Light but Mom found a box of it in the floor freezer! This will be the final box, they no longer make the Light version anymore. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Lasagna w/ Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg, Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Buffalo Breakfast Sausage Patties, 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s 1 Calorie Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Tea. I usually don’t have a Big Breakfast but I was starved this morning! First time I prepared the Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage. It comes in a 1 lb. package and I form the Patties. These cam out delicious, another great Buffalo Product from Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

 

Cloudy, rain and 52 degrees out today. Just did a few chores around the house today. I got everything done and just kicked back and got caught up on some shows I had recorded. Had no clue on what to have for Dinner. Wanted a hot Meal but something not real heavy and easy to prepare. Bring on the Chef! For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Lasagna and Texas Toast (Light).

 

I’ve always been a huge fan of Chef Boyardee products and love their Chef Boyardee Lasagna, Ravioli, and Spaghetti and Meatballs. To prepare it; the easy part! Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan, put the lid on, and heat on medium until heated through. Just stir it occasionally and your done. The Pasta Lasagna is excellent and the Tomato and Beef Sauce it comes in is very good. I know there’s better stuff out there but from time to time I love having Chef Boyardee.

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, one of my slices of this. I hear they no longer make it. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 71 degrees and mostly sunny out there today, another beautiful day! I had to be back at my Family Doctor at 1:15 this afternoon. My sugar came back a bit out of whack. He wants increase my Metformin to a higher dosage but I told him I wanted to retake the in 2 months to see if it’s better or the same. I think something was wrong with reading. We’ll see by the next testing. Back home,  got the cart out of the shed and did a few things around the yard.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A high of 29 degrees, cloudy and windy outdoors today. We have a huge snow storm moving in Sunday night through Tuesday, anywhere 8-12 inches predicted, we’ll wait and see! Cleaned the house today then caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight its one of our favorites, Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light).

 

For Dinner tonight it’s one of our favorites, SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. SayersBrook no longer produces the Chopped Bison Sirloin. So I thought that was the end of them until I came across a package of 2 of them in the freezer! That made our day, me and Mom both love these! I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. So 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. This might be all the SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak that we have left. They no longer make the Chopped Steak, very sad! But every week I send SayerBrook a couple of emails a week asking them to bring it back!

 

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. The Chopped Steak, Potato, and Texas Toast just seem to work the best! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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.

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 45 degrees and Sunny out today. Right afterward I headed out to Kroger, about 6:30 this morning. I wanted to get there and get what I needed and get out before it gets crowded. But by 7:00 it was getting crowded, guess everyone had the same idea. Besides our groceries I got our neighbor a few items also. They were all cleaning items as both the husband and wife have the virus and are to stay at home for 2 weeks until the next test. Sure feel bad for them. Back home did some cleaning and then got outside for a bit and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!

I went to Meijer for me and Mom and for an elderly neighbor. As I said before I like going early, get what I need, and get out before it starts getting crowded. Picked up Breakfast for Mom and our neighbor at McDonald’s. Back home dropped off our neighbor’s groceries and her McDonald’s. Not a lot going on. Just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Parmigiana and Texas Toast (Light).

 

While at Meijer I picked up a Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmigiana. I was looking for something for Dinner tonight and I came across the Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmigiana. The picture on the box along with the description of the dish had me sold the first time I purchased it. The dish turned out delicious, so I have found tonight’s Dinner!

 

To prepare it you either bake it or microwave it, as most times I’m baking it. To start I preheat the oven to 400°F. Removed the tray from the carton. Placed the tray on a cookie sheet. Cooked with the film on for 50 minutes. Removed it from the oven and removed the film, let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

 

This is so delicious! The Breaded Chicken is fantastic, the Breading of the Chicken was excellent, the Seasoning is spot on, and Spaghetti came out tender. Put all that together and you have one delicious Chicken Parmigiana! They have 13 different Family Dinners and we’ve tried 3 of them, all delicious!

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Parmigiana and baked us some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I another bowl of All-Bran Wheat Flakes, used 2% White Milk. Had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea afterward. 73 degrees and sunny out today. Got the cart, rake, and leaf blower out and helped 3 of my elderly neighbors out with their yard work. I washed off their decks and driveway for them. I’m ready for some rest! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Lite).

 

Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast, always one of my favorite meals! 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
