Today’s Menu:Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread
 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I’m having another of the Buffalo Fillet Mignon. I love these SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon! To prepare it I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. It came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also as usual, had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

Rain, Thunderstorms, and a high of 56 degrees for a high. We have a lot of flooding across the area. So its a another indoor day. Did some cleaning; Turned the oven on and let clean, straightened up the freezer, and straightened up the pantry. After that just kicked back and watched some College Basketball. For Dinner tonight its Baked Turkey Meatballs and Rotini Pasta w/ Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 

 

You can make any Meal healthier by using healthier ingredients. That includes Meatballs and Pasta! I’ll be using Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large Meatballs. For the Sauce I’m using LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce. Then for the Rotini Pasta I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. For the added Cheese topping I’m using Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese. The Bread is River Road Bakehouse Multi Grain Bread. I’ve been buying this from Meijer the last few months and it’s our favorite Baked Bread.

 

I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. As I said, for the Meatballs I’m using my favorite, Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Kroger finally started having these back in stock! The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are some of the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 large 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 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.

 

 

 

For the Rotini Pasta I’m using my favorite, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. Easy to prepare; I used a large sauce pan and added 1 1/2 quarts of water and Salt and brought it to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and brought it back to a boil. Cooked uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring often. Drained the Pasta and put it into the Baking Dish. Then Seasoned the Rotini with 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, some McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Next I topped the Rotini with the LaRosa’s Sauce and Turkey Meatballs. Sprinkled more of the Grated Parm Cheese followed by a layer of Sargento Mozzarella Cheese. The oven was preheated at 400 degrees so it was ready to bake. As the Past Dish was baking I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

The Meatballs and Rotini came out incredible! The Turkey Meatballs, Rotini Pasta, Cheese, and Sauce combined to make one delicious Dish! Plus Mom and Dad both enjoyed it. Neither is big on Pasta but had 2 servings of it!. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped 1/2 the Muffin with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and the other 1/2 with Nutella. If your not sure what Nutella is, Nutella is a brand of sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread. I’ll buy a small jar of this from time to time. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside more rain! There’s heavy flooding in a lot of places, especially in Cincinnati along the Ohio River. A lot of roads and businesses are under water. Plus heavy rain up until Sunday so it will get worse. Not feeling real good again today. So I took it easy still fighting with my Sinuses. For Dinner tonight its Leftover – Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese. And thank goodness for Leftovers, sure didn’t feel like cooking today. I left the post from yesterday below for the Dish description and directions.

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat I cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese. It comes with the Pasta Parm Sauce and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! Love these Semi-Homemade Meals! I’ll be having the leftovers for my Dinner tomorrow night! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese

 

 

Almost done….

For Breakfast this morning I got the Waffle Grill out but instead of normal Waffles I made Hash Brown Waffles. I seen these made in Cooking Magazines and on TV but never tried them until this morning. Just spray the Griddle with Cooking Spray, add your Simply Potatoes Shredded Hashbrowns, season with Salt and Pepper, shut the lid of the Waffle Griddle, and cook. Quite easy to make and something different for Breakfast! I love Hash Browns, I could have them twice a day, and preparing them this was turned out great! I topped the Hash Brown Waffles with an Egg I fried Sunnyside Up and I toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also, as always, I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

Yesterday a record high of 80 degrees and Sunny. Today our high was 62 degrees at Midnight and fell through the day to about 42 degrees and Rain! Welcome to Ohio Weather! It’s like Forest Gump’s box of Chocolate, you never know what you’ll get! Not a lot going today so I took it easy still fighting with my Sinuses. For Dinner tonight its Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese.

Rustic Parsley and Orzo Soup with Walnuts
This soup recipe is based on a traditional pasta dish that consists of lots of parsley, garlic, chopped walnuts, hot chile and olive oil, all fried up and tossed with pasta. We amped up the greens, made the pasta a nutritious supporting player and turned the recipe into a soup. It’s best served immediately, because the orzo will absorb liquid as the soup is held. Thin any leftover soup with more vegetable broth, if desired. Recipe by Anna Thomas for EatingWell……

Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini

Today’s Menu: Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Today is my Mom’s 90th Birthday! So, So lucky to have my Mom around all this time! After Breakfast I went to Kroger to pick up a Birthday Cake and Flowers for her and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her and Dad. Not a bad day out, sunny and a high of 40 degrees. Swept of the driveway and wooden deck outside. After Lunch did some house cleaning and a load of laundry. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Whole Grain Rotini.

 


For the Sausage I’m using a favorite of mine, Jennie – O Turkey Sweet Italian Sausages. I love these about anyway I can prepare them. And tonight I’ll be slicing them up and using them with Pasta.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Sausage I took a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and preheated the skillet on medium heat. I kept the Sausage Links whole to keep all the juices in, I’ll slice them after they have been cooked. With the skillet heated I added 3 of the Sausages and covered the pan with the lid. I cooked them for 16 minutes, turning them frequently. After 16 minutes I checked one of the Sausages with a meat thermometer and it was at 164 degrees. Always be sure Turkey is at 165 degrees before eating. I let the Sausages cool for 3 minutes and sliced them into bite size pieces and set them aside until I was ready to add them to the Pasta, which I had already started to boil.

 


For the Rotini Pasta I’m using my favorite, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini. Easy to prepare; I used a large sauce pan and added 1 1/2 quarts of water and Salt and brought it to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and brought it back to a boil. Cooked uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring often. Drained the Pasta and added it to a large bowl.

 

 

 

 

Seasoned it with 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, some McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese, and topped it with LaRosa Sauce. Added the sliced Jennie – O Sweet Italian Sausages and stirred until well mixed. Served it in a bowl and topped it with a sprinkle of the Parm Cheese and some Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 


To start my morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. It snowed overnight and into the morning here. We ended up with over 3 inches. So not much going on outside today. And not going on inside. I was caught up on everything so it a was layed back day today. For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. I love these, they are so meaty. They don’t have that Ocean taste like Ocean Shrimp but they’re not bad. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

 

Poured about 1 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning.

 

 


To go with the Shrimp I prepared some Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I baked a loaf of La Brea Bakery Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later some sliced Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Whole Grain Saltine Crackers.
