Today’s Menu: Baked Breaded Shrimp and Breaded Clams w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Skillet Diced Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees, humid, and partly sunny. Well our humid weather is back, glad I got all the yard work done yesterday! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight and all from the oven! I prepared Baked Breaded Shrimp and Breaded Clams w/ Baked Fries.

Been a while since I’ve had any SeaPak Shrimp or Clams. So for the Shrimp I prepared a box of SeaPak Jumbo Shrimp. I preheated the oven on 425°f. I then got a small baking sheet, covered with aluminum foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I arranged the frozen shrimp in single layer on the baking sheet. Then baked at 425 degrees for 13-14 minutes turning over once after 6 minutes. They came out Golden Brown and delicious. Hard to beat these always great tasting. I served them with a side of Heinz Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

Then for the Clams I used a box of SeaPak Clam Strips. Preheat the oven on 400 degrees. I then lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with a shot of Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the Clam Strips in a single layer on the sheet and baked them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 7 minutes. These come out so delicious. Love these, very meaty strips, well seasoned, and easy to prepare. Had a side of McCormick’s Tarter Sauce, for dipping. Great product to have in the freezer for those days where you want something easy to prepare. Wow such an easy Dinner to prepare, just bake and serve. Easy to prepare Dinners can also be a Delicious Dinner.

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 89 degrees and very humid out today, not too comfortable out there. Rain moving in toward the evening. After my Tea I headed out to Meijer. I had a spigot installed in the front. I got tired of lugging a hose from the far side to the front. So I had installed yesterday. So off to Meijer to buy a hose for it. Stopped and got the car washed on the way home. Not much else going on. So for Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

I bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer. I had them in the freezer so I grabbed one last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet sprayed it the Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 14 minutes flipping it several times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! First time I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise, nice and Creamy with nice flavor and kick to it! I’ll have to add this the pantry list!

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 83 degrees and mostly sunny out today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and as that was going I went and picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for Mom. Got the cart out and did some yard work, cut down some old bushes on the side and in the rear of the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

I picked up a loaf the Goldminer California Sourdough Bread at Kroger on my last visit. I love this Bread especially grilled! But don’t have too often because of the calories and carbs. To prepare the Sandwich I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 3 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

To start my morning off I prepared a Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and Meijer Diced Ham Skillet. I prepared the Hash Browns and made a bed of them in a bowl and topped them with some Sargento Off the Block Three State Cheddar Cheese. I prepared the Diced Ham as the Hash Browns were cooking. Then I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Then I fried an Egg Sunny Side Up and topped the Ham and Potatoes. Love this Breakfast Dish! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 86 degrees and very humid, also a couple of light showers. My Sinuses are running wild today! The high humidity and pollen count did me in today. Had a headache most of the day, just have to wait it out. Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu: Mozzarella and Mushroom Bison Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and partly sunny, had a light shower move through in late afternoon. I grabbed my Mask and I went to Kroger for Mom for a few items and then stopped by Wendy’s and picked up her Breakfast. A friend of mine came over after Lunch and I gave him a hand replacing the living room and dining room window blinds. The ones up were so old the slats were breaking in half, much needed new ones! That was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Mozzarella and Mushroom Bison Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

To make my Bison Steak Sandwich I used SayersBrook Bison Ranch Ground Bison Sirloin. I used a meat tenderizer to get it a bit finer and then formed them into patties. I had them in the freezer so I set them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Steak Sandwich I’ll using the Bison with seasonings of McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and McCormick Italian Seasoning. For toppings I’m going to Sautee some Mushrooms, Ragu Pizza Sauce, a slice of Kroger Mozzarella Cheese, and served on a Aunt Millie’s Deli Whole Grain Mini Sub Bun. I had 2 of the Steak Patties, I fried both of the them.

 

Then to prepare them I took a medium size skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heated it on medium heat. As it heated I added a tablespoon on Extra Light Olive Oil. Next I seasoned the Steaks. I started with a light rub of the Extra Light Olive Oil on both sides then I seasoned them with the Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley and the Italian Seasoning. With the skillet ready I added both Steaks I fried them a total of 6 minutes, 3 minutes per side. After flipping the Patties I added a slice of Mozzarella Cheese with a minute of cooking time left. As these were cooking I added some sliced Mushrooms to a small skillet that I heated it on medium heat. Seasoned them and Sauteed them, set aside when done till needed.

I took the finished Steaks and put them on the bottom half of the Mini Sub Bun. Topped them with the Pizza Sauce and with the Sauteed Mushrooms. ready to serve! These turned out really good, excellent flavor! I didn’t have a small sirloin to pound out but I’m going to purchase some just to make a Steak Sandwich with. Really enjoyed these!

 

To go with my Steak Sandwiches I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, my favorites. Served with some Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


SayersBrook Ground Bison
Most times a recipe using ground meat cautions you to drain it as part of the preparation instructions. This is because of the fat content of the meat. In addition to being unhealthy, what you are draining is uneconomical. You’re pouring money down the drain, literally. With Ground Bison Meat from SayersBrook Bison Ranch, you won’t have this problem. In fact, we recommend that you spray your fry pan or skillet with a non-stick spray. It’s the good old American custom of getting what you pay for. Conveniently packaged in 1 lb units, Ground Bison Meat can be used in any recipe calling for beef. Now, you can make chili, lasagna, or your favorite casserole with delicious bison ground meat. One serving (1/3 lb) of ground bison contains 11 g fat, 270 calories, 0 g carbs and 31 g of protein.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries

 

 

To start the day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees, humid and thunderstorms late afternoon. The humidity was bad out there today! After Lunch me and Mom went to the Cemetery and placed flowers on Dad’s, Brother, Grandparents, Uncle, and Aunt graves. Always a sad time. Really miss them all. It’s just too humid to be outside much. For Dinner tonight Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries.

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! I had the Burger in the freezer so I laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. Used a Paper Towel and rubbed it in some Extra Light Olive Oil. Then rubbed the Grill Grate down with it. Then fired up the Grill! Seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. With the Grill heated I started grilling. I grilled the Buffalo Burger and Brat and Mett for Mom. I grilled the Burger about 3 minutes and flipped it over. After 2 minutes I added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar and cooked it another 1 minute and done! Served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger! Plus that added flavor by grilling it. Mom’s Grilled Brats turned out great also!


To go with my Burger I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French 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. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry. Cloudy, passing rain showers, and a high of 74 degrees out today. Well the Beauty Salons opened back up today and Mom made sure she had an appointment this morning at 10:00! After Lunch and in between thunderstorms I moved 3 bags of extra Dark Mulch over to my neighbor’s house. He’s older and not in great health so I was able to take them over using my Hoveround. Don’t know what I would do without my Hoveround. Being an amputee it is my legs! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

I had this Burger a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t wait to have another! I had purchased a package of Smart Ground Chicken from Meijer a while back and had it in the freezer. I already had divided the package into 4 equal parts to make 4 Chicken Burgers. So I set a package in the the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Litehouse Poultry Herb Seasoning, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun.

First thing I did was fry the Bacon. I’m using John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon. I rarely use John Morrell but you have to use what you can find in stock right now at the stores. John Morrell Bacon is great tasting Bacon, just don’t use it. So I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam cooking Spray. Then heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Bacon. Mom loves Bacon so I just fried the whole package. Fried up great and was delicious! I set it aside until I needed it.

Next I made my Chicken Burger patties. To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly.

 

In a Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with Cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and the Bacon. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French 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 Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Waffle Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smart Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 53 degrees and mostly cloudy outside today. Did a load of laundry after my Tea. Later on I took my car up and had it washed and vacuumed it out. Then stopped by the ATM and then stopped at the gas station and filled the car up with gas. Not a lot going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

I picked up a loaf the Goldminer California Sourdough Bread at Kroger the other day. I love this Bread especially grilled! But don’t have too often because of the calories and carbs. To prepare the Sandwich I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 3 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Tenders and Baked Fries

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Wow, what a beautiful day out there today! Sunny and 71 degrees but a possible record cold morning with snow flurries by in the morning! Yes indeed, that Ohio Weather! It’s no wonder everyone has Sinus and Allergy problems in Southwest Ohio! Hopefully they’ll miss that forecast. After Lunch I got the cart out and did a little yard work. Then later took the cart for a spin around the neighborhood, enjoying that sunshine! For Dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Tenders and Baked Fries.

 

I had no clue on what to prepare for Dinner tonight so I hit the freezer. I came across a package of Simple Truth Chicken Tenderloins (Tenders). So I sat them out to thaw this morning. To prepare them I’ll need McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Poultry Herb Blend, Garlic Salt, Flour, Pam Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

I seasoned and Floured the Tenders and set then aside. I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Spray and heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet heated I added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. When the skillet was heated I added the Tenders, I cooked them in 2 batches so not to over crowd the skillet. I cooked them for about 5 minutes and flipped them over to continue cooking them another 4 minutes. I checked the Tenders with a meat thermometer and I had the correct reading of 165 degrees F. Removed the first batch on to a paper towel lined plate and cooked the next batch.

They came out excellent! Good Seasoning and the Flour gave it a good crust. Served these with sides of LiteHouse Lite Blue Cheese and Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken Tenders I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Served those with some Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Dark Cherry Sugar Free Jello. Take care everyone!

Today’s Menu: Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a rainy day! Cloudy, rain, and a high of 50 degrees. One day its a high near 80 degrees and 2 days later 49-50 degrees, good ole Ohio weather! Not much to do today. Just did a few things around the house and caught up on some reading. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ground Chicken Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had purchased a package of Smart Ground Chicken from Meijer a while back and had it in the freezer. I set the package in the the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Burger I’ll need; the Ground Chicken (1 lb. package), Litehouse Poultry Herb Seasoning, McCormick’s Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Meijer Italian Style Bread Crumbs. For toppings I’m using Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/Olive Oil, Heinz 57 Sauce, John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun.

 

First thing I did was fry the Bacon. I’m using John Morrell Applewood Smoked Bacon. I rarely use John Morrell but you have to use what you can find in stock right now at the stores. John Morrell Bacon is great tasting Bacon, just don’t use it. So I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam cooking Spray. Then heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Bacon. Mom loves Bacon so I just fried the whole package. Fried up great and was delicious! I set it aside until I needed it.

 

Next I made my Chicken Burger patties. To prepare them, in a large bowl, combine Chicken, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Italian Style Bread Crumbs. The Seasonings amount are to taste and 2 tablespoons of the Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Make a little depression with your thumb in the center of each burger so they cook evenly. Divide the mixture into 4 patties.

 

 

In a Cast Iron Skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add burger patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with Cheddar and cook until just started melting, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer patties to a plate. Serve on the Buns and top with Mayo, Heinz 57 Sauce, and the Bacon. The Ground Chicken Burger is juicy, moist, and flavorful! I’ll have to start having a lot more often!

 

 

To go with the Chicken Burger I prepared Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French 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 Heinz 57 Sauce. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smart Ground Chicken
Ground chicken is a healthy start for any meal since one serving (100 grams, or about 3 ounces) meets one’s protein needs for a nutritious meal – plus it’s lower in calories and fat than many meat sources. Lean ground chicken is high in protein and offers less saturated fat than ground beef.
