Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

 

 

To start the day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea also. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After my Tea I went Kroger and then Meijer for a few items. On the way back home I stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom at Wendy’s. Later on took Mom’s car up and had it washed and stopped and got gas. Back home got the shop vac out and vacuumed her car. For Dinner tonight its a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

I had the 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin in the freezer and sat a couple of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious! I always try to have a supply of them in the freezer. To prepare it I turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Next I rubbed the Steak with a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and the Wild Idea Omnivore Salt. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet. When the Skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 2 minutes on 1 side and flipped it over and cooked it another 1 minute. Then I moved the Cast Iron to the oven to finish cooking. It came out to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender.

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. I just love the trio of the Wild Idea Buffalo Steak, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast! plus it’s Mom Approved! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

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. 90 degrees, partly cloudy, and very humid outdoors today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom and then stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home I got the cart out of the shed, time for some shed repair. My neighbor came over and helped me repair the skirting around the shed. We have a ground hog that keeps tearing up it up, he does the same to the neighbor’s also. We have trap cages set up now in our back yards, more on this later! 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. 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.

 

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: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

 

 

To start the day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea also. 78 degrees and sunny out today. It’s going to be a day of clean up outside! Our yard seems to be the stopping point for all tree limbs, leaves, and garbage. Seriously our yard is like a magnet for any and all debris. So I got the cart, rake, leaf blower, and garbage yard bags out and did some cleaning! Kept the cart out and took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful day. For Dinner tonight its a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

I had the 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious!

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. 81 degrees and partly cloudy outside today. After Breakfast I tried going to see my Uncle in the hospital but they are only letting direct family members in. They need to get back to the normal soon. Got the cart out and did a little yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

So 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 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 Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast on this Saturday Morning 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. 72 degrees and mostly sunny, and no rain! After Breakfast I grabbed my mask and gloves and went to the local Kroger for a few items. They seem to be better stocked, that’s a good thing. Did some yard work, just enjoying the beautiful day out there! For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I couldn’t let these Leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from yesterday for the recipe and Dinner description.

I love Gumbo and Cajun Cuisine, 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!

 

 

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread for Gumbo. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
For Seafood Gumbo: Cover. Microwave on HIGH 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in seafood. Cover. Microwave on HIGH 10 minutes longer or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Let stand in microwave 5 minutes.

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

 

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smaucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers and 75 degrees out today. Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Then took the vacuum brushes out and cleaned them. That was about it for my day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. 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 go with it.

 

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 Diet Peach Snapple.

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

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Kroger Diced Ham, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento 4 State Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain and thunderstorms out today, a high of 63 degrees. So it was mostly indoors today. Just as well I didn’t get any sleep last night I had to deal with Phantom Pains! Oh how I dread these. But not a lot to do but deal with it! They finally let up around 9:00 this morning. So I spent this rainy day catching up on some sleep. 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 meals! I just love these 3 items together. 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. The best tasting Russet Potatoes seem to be out right now, some of the best I’ve had!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Reddi Wip Reduced Fat Topping.
