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

 

 

To start this Monday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom had the same for a change, no McDonald’s! Mostly sunny and 49 degrees out today. So after Breakfast I went to Kroger for a few items and back home. Then later, after Lunch, I took my car and had it washed and then to bank. Back home got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. 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 Kroger’s earlier and having it tonight. 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 Sprite to drink.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
30 grams Parmigiano-Reggiano

Directions
1 – Bring the water and salt to a boil and then add the spaghetti. Boil the spaghetti until it is just shy of al dente (about 7 minutes).
2 – While the pasta is boiling, add the olive oil and porcini mushrooms to a frying pan and saute over medium-high heat until browned around the edges and cooked through. Transfer the porcinis to a clean bowl and set aside.
3 – When the pasta is done, pour 1/4 cup of the boiling liquid into the pan that you sauteed the mushrooms in and then drain the pasta.

Garlic-Herb Linguine w/ Argentinean Red Shrimp

Today’s Menu: Garlic-Herb Linguine w/ Argentinean Red Shrimp

 

 

To start my Sunday Morning off I had Glier’s Turkey Goetta and Hash Browns. It had been a while since I’ve had Turkey Goetta. I picked up a roll of it at Kroger the other day. I sat it in the freezer after I got up for 30 minutes. Reason being is that it slices a lot better and stays together when sliced as a patty. I fried a couple of slices up in a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Spray, fried until both sides were golden brown. Then I also prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. When done I sprinkled it with Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar. The Goetta goes great with Hash Browns! Cloudy, windy, and 48 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. She loves those Golden Arches Breakfasts! Mom went on to Church afterward. I did a couple of loads of laundry and cleaned the house today. For Dinner tonight I tried Argentinean Red Shrimp for the first time. I prepared Garlic-Herb Linguine w/ Argentinean Red Shrimp.

 

 

 

I purchased a frozen bag of Private Selection Antarctic Wild Caught Argentinean Red Shrimp at Kroger last week and couldn’t wait to try it! They come peeled and deveined. The description for Red Shrimp reads; Private Selection Antarctic Wild Caught Argentinean Red Shrimp are native to the antarctic waters off the coast of Argentinian and are prized for their succulent and buttery lobster-like taste and texture. There’s 90 calories in a serving of 6 Shrimp.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Shrimp I got a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 1 table spoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Heated the skillet on medium heat. I seasoned the Shrimp with Old Bay Seasoning. Old Bay is perfect for all Seafood and Chicken. When the Skillet was heated and ready I added the Shrimp. Cooked them for 4 minutes, turning them over after 2 minutes. And done! They fried up easy and they have an excellent flavor to them. And they are a lot like Lobster! I’ll be using these again.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Shrimp was cooking I prepared the Barilla Whole Grain Linguine. I brought a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cooked the Linguine at a boil until tender, about 11 minutes; drain and transferred pasta to a large bowl.Then I mixed melted Butter, minced Garlic, and Parsley in a small bowl; and drizzled over the Linguine and toss to coat. Season Pasta with seasoned Sea Salt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Dish I made a bed of the Linguine in a bowl. Topped it with the Red Shrimp with a sprinkle of Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese. The Red Shrimp is so good and works perfect with Linguine! I had also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread that I got from Meijer. I love Shrimp and Pasta! For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Eggplant Tortilla Casserole

You’d never guess that within this comforting Tex-Mex casserole hides a layer of thinly sliced eggplant. The thin slices become tender when roasted and add a subtle savory note………

Lemon Chicken and Rice
This easy Persian-inspired chicken and rice dish has a beautiful golden color and a wonderful fragrance. If you have saffron in the cupboard, do add that optional pinch; just a little will enhance the flavor and aroma of the dish……..

Today’s Menu: Tuna Helper Tuna Cheesy Pasta and Rustic Sesame Loaf Bread

 

 

 

To start this Saturday morning off I opened up a can of Turkey Spam. I sliced off 3 slices and fried it up in a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Next using the same skillet I Scrambled up a couple of Eggs, when done topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento 4 Month Aged Off the Block Gouda Cheese and some Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce. Then I toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Excellent Breakfast! 46 degrees and cloudy out today, with snow coming in tomorrow along with a Artic Freeze!. Afterward I did a load of laundry. Then after Lunch I got the cart, leaf blower, and rake out of the shed. I cleaned up around the house, flowerbeds, deck, and driveway areas. Feels good to get outside! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Tuna Helper Tuna Cheesy Pasta and Rustic Sesame Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

 

I came across a box of Betty Crocker Tuna Helper Tuna Cheesy Pasta at Jungle Jim’s the other day and it just sounded good. I’ve fixed many of the Helper styles before, first time for the Tuna. To make the Dish I’ll need; 1 Box of Tuna Helper, Water, 2% Milk, Butter, and 2 cans of Chicken of the Sea Tuna.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I started by heating oven to 425 degrees. Stir Pasta, Sauce Mix, 11/2 cups boiling Water, 2 cups 25 Milk, 3 Tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Butter and the Tuna in ungreased 2-quart casserole. Cover it with some aluminum foil and bake about 35 minutes or until pasta is tender. Uncover carefully; stir. (Sauce will thicken as it cools.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This came out an excellent dish! The Pasta was great, very good Cheese, and the Tuna worked perfect with Pasta. Plenty of Leftovers for a few Lunches! I also baked the other half of the Rustic Sesame Loaf Bread from the other night. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Hot Fudge Topping.

Fish and Seafood Recipes for Picky Eaters

From the EatingWell website and Magazine its Fish and Seafood Recipes for Picky Eaters. Delicious and Healthy Fish and Seafood Recipes for Picky Eaters. Get those Picky Eaters to enjoy Fish and Seafood with recipes like; Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole, Baked Popcorn Shrimp with Sweet Chili Sauce, and New England Clam Chowder. Find these recipes and more all at the EatingWell website. Plus don’t forget to subscribe to the EatingWell Magazine, one of my favorites! So Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One! http://www.eatingwell.com/

Fish and Seafood Recipes for Picky Eaters
If you want to eat more fish, but don’t really love it, or if you have a fish hater or your hands, give these healthy fish recipes a try. For non-fish eaters, cook up some white fish, that’s milder in flavor than salmon. Or make your own fish sticks for a healthy dippable option kids will love.

Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole
Known as Tuna-Pea Wiggle to some, this family-friendly tuna noodle casserole tends to be made with canned soup and whole milk, which means high fat and sodium. We remedy this by making our own creamy mushroom sauce with nonfat milk thickened with a bit of flour. Look for whole-wheat egg noodles–they have more fiber than regular egg noodles (but this dish will work well and taste great with either)…………

Baked Popcorn Shrimp with Sweet Chili Sauce
This healthy popcorn shrimp recipe uses tiny shrimp to make crunchy bites perfect for popping in your mouth. We also swap out mayo-based tartar sauce for a healthier Greek yogurt dip flavored with Thai chili sauce………

New England Clam Chowder
Chopped clams, aromatic vegetables and creamy potatoes blended with low-fat milk and just a half cup of cream gives this chunky New England-style clam chowder plenty of rich body. Serve with oyster crackers and a tossed salad to make it a meal……..
