Today’s Menu: Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Pringle’s Fat Free Chips

It’s been one of those long days today. Dad fell again, in the house and he wasn’t hurt thankfully. Then I got a flat on my Hoveround Chair, luckily I had the new chair that I hadn’t used much yet. The new chair can’t even compare to the my old chair. My neighbors came over and changed the tire on my old one for me. So I got my old hoveround back up and running! I had baked several Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread Loaves yesterday and took a couple of them over to my neighbors who are always there to give me a hand. I really get frustrated not to be able to do the little things, because I’m in a wheelchair. For 40 plus years I had both legs and used to do everything for myself, now I need help with a lot of things which is where the frustration sits in. But I guess you have to do what have to do to get things done. Sorry about the ranting! For dinner tonight I prepared a Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Pringle’s Fat Free Chips.


Jennie O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage 002


I used Jennie O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage. I pan fried it, using Pam Spray and no oil, a total of about 17 minutes. It fried up excellent, as all Jennie – O Products they have real good and fresh taste to them. They have 160 calories and 0 carbs per Sausage. Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Hot Dog Bun topped it with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. To go with my Sausage I had some Pringle’s Fat Free Chips.



*Note: Camera went on the blink as I was using it, picture shown one of my stock pictures with different chips other than the Pringle’s.

For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread. I had baked a few mini loaves of it yesterday. It comes with a small packet of Walnuts, but I still added some extra Chopped Walnuts to it. I added a small 1 cup serving Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding to it, the pudding gives all cakes an extra kick of moistness. I also used Egg Beater’s and Extra Virgin Olive Oil, replacing the Eggs and Corn Oil. Cut the calories where you can!

Today’s Menu: Baked Copper River Salmon w/ Edamame, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread

I had a beautiful Copper River Salmon Fillet for dinner tonight! I thought I was out of the Copper River Fillets but found this in freezer the other day. I rubbed the fillet with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I baked it at 400 degrees for 11 minutes. Perfect, love that Salmon!

For sides I had sliced Carrots, that I boiled, Pictsweet Edamame w/ Sea Salt, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread . That’s the first time I had tried the Edamame and it might be the last. It was bland and just not to tasty . For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Fried Tilapia w/ Green Beans, Cheesy Hash Brown, and Whole Grain Bread

I had fried Tilapia with sides for dinner tonight. I first seasoned the Tilapia with Sea Salt and Black Pepper and then I combined Whole Wheat Flour, Italian Bread Crumbs, and Old Bay Seasoning in a Zip Lock plastic bag and added my fillet until it was well coated. I fried the fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side. It came out golden brown and flakey.

For my sides I had Green Beans, Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Idaohan Cheesy Hash Brown was a new item I tried. I figured that this had to be as good as the rest of their products and I was right. You could prepare them on the stove or by baking which is what I did. They came out delicious as all Idahoan products do. I left the product description along with the directions at the end of the post. For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Ice Cream.
