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.

Baked Cheesy Pizza Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Baked Cheesy Pizza Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

To start this day off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Walmart, stopped by the ATM, and got my car washed. It’s partly cloudy, 92 degrees, and humid out today. Did a few things around the yard and not much else going on. Pretty quiet Labor Day Weekend. For Dinner tonight I had a Baked Cheesy Pizza Pasta w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

While at Walmart I bought a Michael Angelo’s Cheesy Pizza Pasta. They have several different kinds but I thought I would give this one a try! It comes frozen and you prepare it from frozen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Wow! This is the second Michael Angelo’s product I’ve tried, we tried the Chicken Parmigiana also. The Michael Angelo’s products are some of the best frozen foods that will find. The Michael Angelo’s Chessy Pizza Pasta was so good. Plenty of Home Style Meat (Pork and Pepperoni) along with Mozzarella Cheese. Plus the taste and Seasoning are perfect! They have several products and look forward to trying them all. Meijer used to carry them but now I think Walmart is the only store to have them.

 

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of South Carolina grown fresh sliced Peaches. These Peaches we have been buying from Jungle Jim’s Market are so good!

Today’s Menu: Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Chicken Breasts w/ Olive Oil and Italian Herb Linguine

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees and a bit more humid, passing rain showers around the area. Well spent the day breaking up Half Runner Green Beans and helping Mom can 14 quarts! Plenty of Green Beans for a while. I’m glad I’ve learned how to can. Not a lot of people can anymore. For Dinner tonight I prepared Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Chicken Breasts w/ Olive Oil and Italian Herb Linguine.

 

 

 

I picked the Chicken up at Meijer, Katie’s Best Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts, and had the package in the freezer. Sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I’m seasoning the Chicken with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat.

 

 

 

 

 

When the skillet was heated I added the Chicken Breasts. Cooked the Chicken for 7 minutes a side. With a couple of minutes of cooking time left I turned the heat down to medium low and added the jar of Prego Cooking Sauce. Flipped the Chicken one last time with a minute left. I cooked it an extra minute to let those flavors of the Tomato and Fresh Ricotta marinate the Chicken Breasts. Checked temperature of the Chicken with a thermometer and it read just a tad over 165°. Removed the skillet from the heat and let it sit a couple of minutes until the Pasta finished. I came across the Prego Cooking Sauce – Tomato and Fresh Ricotta Sauce at Meijer last week, looking forward to trying their other Sauces!

 

 

 

I’m serving the Chicken with Pasta Roni Rustic Recipes Olive Oil and Italian Herb. I’ve had this many times but usually with Shrimp. Easy to preapre and makes a delicious Pasta Dish, I’m preparing this as my Chicken is cooking. To prepare it In medium saucepan, bring Water and Olive Oil to a boil. Then slowly stir in Pasta and Special Seasonings. Return to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 10-12 min., stirring frequently. The Sauce will be thin so just let it stand for 3min. to thicken. Pasta Done! I love these Rice A Roni and Pasta Roni products! Added a sprinkle of Morton’s Light Salt to it.

 

 

 

 

To serve it I made a bed of the Pasta in a bowl and top it with a one of the Chicken Breasts and the Sauce. Topped it all with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I really like this Prego Cooking Sauce! Excellent flavor and Seasoning, perferct for the Chicken. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of South Carolina grown fresh sliced Peaches, love these Peaches!

Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta

Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy, 88 degrees, and a little humid out today. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Then later I went to Costco for a few items. Not much else going on today, did a few things around the house and outside. For Dinner tonight its Rotisserie Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta w/ French Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

I had this meal a while back and really enjoyed it, good Dinner when you want something light. I enjoy simple Meals so much! So for the Chicken I used the leftover Kirkland – Costco Rotisserie Chicken. I put the Chicken in a bowl and I seasoned it with a shake of Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Set aside until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

 

Next I prepared the Sauteed Mushrooms. I used a small package of Baby Bella Mushrooms that I had purchased at Meijer the other day. Cooked them in a small skillet. I added a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the skillet on medium heat. I sliced up the Mushrooms and added them to the heated skillet. Seasoned them with Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Roasted Cumin, Dried Thyme, and Dried Rosemary. Sauteed for about 5 minutes stirring them often. Removed the skillet from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 

 

As the Mushrooms were cooking I started cooking the Rotini Pasta. For the Pasta I used Ronzoni Smart taste Rotini. For some reason finding Rozini Pasta Products in this are is getting harder and harder to find. I found this at Walmart. To prepare it I got a sauce pan out and added about 1 1/2 quarts Water and Salt. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the pasta and stirred; returned it to a rapid boil. Cooked it for 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 9 minutes removed it from the heat, drained it. Added it to a bowl, seasoning it with a bit more Salt and a 1/2 a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then added the Chicken and Mushrooms. Stirred until well mixed. The trio of Chicken, Mushrooms, and Rotini Pasta combine together to make one delicious Dinner! Served it in a bowl and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. I also had a slice of Pillsbury French Bread leftover from last night. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After my Tea I stated a load of laundry and then headed out to Walmart. Didn’t need much, just something to do. After Lunch I got the cart out and grabbed a rake and leaf blower and raked the back yard. Sprayed for weeds along the back along the woods. I love the warm weather and getting out and doing things around the yard! It was mostly Sunny and 91 degrees out, a bit more humid out.

For Dinner tonight its leftovers! Had a container of the Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. Come Dinner time I heated up the leftover Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. I reheat in a small sauce pan. I’ve left the original post below for description. Enjoy!

 

 

 

The Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta has 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 had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a 2 Egg Scrambled Eggs that I topped with some Ortega Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce and some Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain in the morning and then turning partly cloudy and 85 degrees out. Got the cart out of shed and started some repair work on the shed. I’m replacing the bottom trim around the back and the 2 sides of the shed. Looks like at least a 2 day job. One of those jobs that takes longer when in a mobility cart. For dinner tonight I prepared 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread.

 

 

 

 

I came across a recipe for Chili Mac the other day and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So I made some my way! I had prepared some quite a while back using Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans. This time around I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ll also be making a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread! Can’t wait for Dinner!

 

 

 

 

 

I had a couple of containers of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the freezer. If I was making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. With toppings of Sargento Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Oyster Crackers. I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside as my Pasta was cooking. For the full recipe and cooking instructions of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili just click the link.

For my Elbow Pasta I used DereamFields Elbows. It’s tough finding Whole Grain Pastas, at least around here where I live. Used to be I could find it at most any Grocery Store. Maybe 1 or 2 stores or on line. The DreamFields is all I could find at Meijer yesterday. It’s 190 calories and 36 net carbs per serving, cooks up great, and good taste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Easy to prepare; Grab a large sauce pan and boil your water to a rapid boil, amount of water depends how much Pasta you are preparing. Add the amount of Pasta you’ll need and return it to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for a 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain, draining it well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add it back to the pot and add the 3 Bean Turkey Chili and mix with a large spoon, heat on low and mix well. And it’s ready to serve! Top with Cheese, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream, or Diced Onions. I just always use the Cheese and Hot Sauce for my toppings. To serve just grab a bowl and scoop out the amount that you want. Add your toppings, if any, and enjoy! The 3 Bean Turkey Chili works perfect with Elbow Pasta. Such a good Comfort Food Dish!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chili Mac I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
