Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links

 

To start this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nothing new here weather wise, another 2 more inches of snow fell. My neighbor across the street came over and shoveled it off then I spread salt on it to clear the driveway again! I have to have Mom out to Ross tomorrow morning for 2nd virus shot. Hopefully the weather won’t be bad. Not a lot more going on today. For Dinner tonight, Breakfast! I’m having Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links. I love Biscuits and Gravy!

 

It just felt like a Biscuit, Gravy, and Sausage type of day! I love Gravy, I take that after my Dad! He loved Gravy on anything. To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! To prepare it I get a small sauce pan and give it a light spray of Pam non Stick Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. I add a 1 1/2 cups of Cold Water to the pan and heat it on high to a rolling boil. As that is heating up I preheated the oven for the Pillsbury Biscuits and I mixed the Gravy. In a measuring cup I added a 1/2 cup of Cold Water and then added the Gravy Mix to the Water and stirred until it smooth. When the Water was boiling I added the Gravy Mix. Turned down the heat a notch or two and started stirring the Mix and Water. Continued stirring until it started to thicken. Removed it from the heat and continued to stir it for about 30 seconds. I put the lid on the sauce pan and set it aside until I was ready to use it.

Time to bake the Pillsbury Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits! Took a small baking pan and sprayed a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray on it. Added the Biscuits and popped the pan in the oven. I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

 

Finally as the Biscuits were baking I also prepared the Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Another delicious and easily prepared item. I buy these all the time, my favorite. I took a small skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Cooking Spray. Heated it on medium heat. Cooked them for 9 minutes, turning them several times. I love these Sausage Links! I prepared the whole package, Mom is having the Breakfast Dinner with me.

 

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good. Breakfast for Dinner is fantastic! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg, and served it on a toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 52 degrees out today, not too bad!  After Breakfast I went to Walmart for a couple of elderly neighbors. I go for them a couple of times a month. Both couples are in their late 80’s and 90’s. So I help them out when I can. I went early to avoid the crowds. It really started getting crowded as I was leaving. Back home just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the freezer that I had purchased a while back. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Good job Meijer!

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Cube Steak with.

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 16 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Cube Steak

Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links

 

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Dark and gloomy day out there today. 47 degrees, cloudy and rain all day! After my Tea I headed to Meijer before the heavier rains came in around 10:00 this morning. I got to Meijer about 7:10 this morning and by the time I left it was crowded. Mom needed some things for Thanksgiving so I got everything she wanted and a few items for me. A couple of people that work at Meijer told me It’s a good thing I came in now because they are having trouble getting items in. They had no Paper Towel, Toilet Paper, or cleaning products. Here we go again! So Breakfast sure sounded good this rainy day, so Breakfast it is! For Dinner tonight, Breakfast! I’m having Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links. I love Biscuits and Gravy!

I love Gravy! To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious!

Turned down the heat a notch or two and started stirring the Mix and Water. Continued stirring until it started to thicken. Removed it from the heat and continued to stir it for about 30 seconds. I put the lid on the sauce pan and set it aside until I was ready to use it.

I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

So as the Biscuits were baking I fried my Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Original Breakfast Sausage. I came across a package of these in the freezer. I laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Breakfast Links that Johnsonville has come out with! To prepare them I coated a skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heat the skillet to medium-low. Added the Sausage and cooked for 11 minutes, turning often, until the Sausage was browned. They cook up perfect and are delicious.

 

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good. Breakfast for Dinner is fantastic! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Mini Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Cloudy, humid and 82 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Home Depot with gloves and a mask on. I guess we’ll have to get used to it for a while, as they say the masks are the new norm!

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a 2 Egg Scrambled Eggs and toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin which I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain and Thunderstorms with a high of 77 degrees outside today. Spent most of the replacing some of the floor trim through the house. I have to replace from time to time from scraping it with my Hoveround Chair. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased the other day. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far.

For a second side I cooked up some fresh Green Beans that Mom had found at Jungle Jim’s. Half Runner Green Beans are expensive this year, if you can find any around here! With all the heavy rains in the Spring a lot of crops didn’t get planted this year. So there is a shortage and all the prices have went up. So any way I prepared those. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of South Carolina grown fresh sliced Peaches.

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. 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 Hash Browns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One delicious Breakfast! No Dinner Post last night. I was at the hospital with Mom. She had been having abdomen pains and sick to her stomach the last few days. So I took her to the ER of a local hospital, and as usual we were there all day! From around noon until after 7:00 last night. She’s better today just real tired from the medication. She had a touch of the flu going around and they found a bit of an infection around one of her bowels. But with the Meds and Rest she’ll be fine! So I just grabbed a bite on the run yesterday. But for Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I opened up another jar of the Canned Green Beans. Just heated them up in a large sauce pan and done! Then I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cube Steak


Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 


To start the day off I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. I then fried 3 slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham. As the Ham was almost done I piled it up in the skillet and topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Put the ham on 1/2 the Muffin and I had my Breakfast Sandwich! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had a shower early this morning and then partly cloudy and 56 degrees out. Not much going on today. Did a load of laundry and then cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight its a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Rotisserie Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin, Scrambled an Egg, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. And that’s how I started my Sunday Morning off! After Breakfast I had to go to Kroger for a few items and I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Mom went on to Church afterward. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house. Then I headed out to Costco. Picked up some of the Tuscan Pork Medallions, Shrimp, Walleye, Rotisserie Chicken, and a few other items. For Dinner tonight Rotisserie Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

We had Chicken Wings last night for Dinner but I just couldn’t pass up those beautiful Rotisserie Chickens at Costco! Huge Chickens, and the good thing is just pop it in the oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and it’s ready. Like I said it’s one big Roaster and it turned out moist, delicious, and well seasoned. Lot of leftovers for several Lunches!

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chicken had the leftover Mashed Potatoes from the night before. Just microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Cube Steak. I love Gravy on about anything!

 

 

 

 

For a 2nd side I reheated the Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce that were leftover along with the Mashed Potatoes. The Beans are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a few times now and really love them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! Being fairly new they are sort of hard to find. The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

Bush’s Best Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce

TWO BEANS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

MIXED CHILI BEANS
For the first time ever, we’ve combined two chili favorites—kidney beans and pinto beans—to create BUSH’S® Mixed Chili Beans. They’re slow-simmered to perfection in a mild sauce flavored with garlic, onion, and spices. They’re a great addition that’ll bring a little variety and a lot of flavor to your next batch of chili.
There’s a lot to love about BUSH’S® Mixed Chili Beans—like the 7g of protein and fiber in every serving. And with no cholesterol or trans fat, there’s goodness in every bite!

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
