Mashed Potatoes……………..

Add cream cheese to your mashed potatoes so they are extra creamy. Add boursin cheese for potatoes that rich, creamy, and lighter in calories. Add a teaspoon of Wasabi powder for spicy Japanese style potatoes. Mash your potatoes with Greek yogurt to make a healthier version that is still creamy and tangy. You can also add minced garlic or garlic powder which enhances potatoes, especially when followed by a healthy sprinkling of shredded cheese. Bottled ranch dressing or dry ranch dressing mix offers a zesty kick. Other favorites are dill, chives and crumbled bacon. Enjoy those Mashed Taters!

Slow-Cooker Turkey Breast
Making turkey breast in the slow cooker guarantees moist, juicy meat every time. And it creates intensely flavorful drippings for homemade gravy. This slow-cooker turkey breast is perfect for Thanksgiving but it’s easy enough that you can pull it together anytime you’re in the mood for a turkey dinner (or a sandwich stuffed with leftover turkey)………………………….

Fall Chopped Salad with Spinach, Butternut Squash, Apples and Cheddar
Who says spinach salads are only for spring? Use autumn’s tender crop of fresh spinach and other seasonal vegetables to make this fall salad with roasted butternut squash, apples, cheddar and pecans. This colorful and healthy salad would be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving menu, but there’s no reason to save it for holidays–serve it along with chicken or pork for a healthy weeknight dinner, or turn it into a main course by adding some chickpeas or chopped chicken or turkey…………………………….

Roasted Green Beans with Applewood Bacon
Cooking bacon and green beans on a sheet pan together simplifies holiday meal prep. Red-wine vinegar and lemon juice provide a balanced, bright flavor……………………..

Buying and Storing Sweet Potatoes………………

Select sweet potatoes with tight, unwrinkled skins that show no signs of blemishes or bruises. Look for small- to medium-sized ones as the larger they get, the starchier they become. Sweet potatoes range from cream-colored varieties to the deep orange ones sometimes mistakenly referred to as yams.

They are best stored in a cool, dry place with suitable ventilation. You can put them in woven baskets or wooden boxes to minimize damage. They should also be kept off the ground to prevent rodents and other pests from getting to them. Make sure the area where you store the sweet potato is well-ventilated.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 75 degrees and sunny out today. Not a lot going on today but rest. I’ve a bad sinus headache all day. Hopefully better later tonight! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes.

 

 

So to prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

For a side I tried another Reser’s Main Street Bistro side dish, Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I came across these Meijer. And we are hooked on them!. We had the Sliced Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Scalloped Potatoes. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the others were. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve! Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another delicious Potato Dish! Seasoned just right and you can hints of taste from the Butter and Sour Cream. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Loaded Potato Hearty Soup

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 60 degrees and partly cloudy out there today. 68 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After my Tea I went to Kroger and then over to Meijer. Stopped and got the car washed and got gas on the way home. Back home it was raking leaves time again. So many leaves out there and we are not even in prime time leaf falling yet! For Dinner tonight I prepared Loaded Potato Hearty Soup.

 

I wanted something light for Dinner so Soup seemed perfect! I’m trying the Idahoan Loaded Potato Hearty Soup. It comes in a packet and easy to prepare. I’ll be preparing the Soup on the stovetop. Start by heating 4 cups of water to a boil in a 2 quart pot. Whisk in the contents of one pouch of soup all at once. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 min, stirring occasionally. Remove the pot from heat and let stand 5 min to cool slightly before serving.

 

Really a very good Potato Soup! I topped it off with Sargento Off the Block 4 State Cheddar Cheese. Plenty of Potatoes and the Soup had excellent Seasoning. I’ll be adding this to the Pantry! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I have to be at the Dermatologist at 8:30 for my yearly check up. The Doc said everything looked good! Afterward Mom wanted to stop by Meijer, which is right down the road from my Dermatologist. Then we went to McDonald’s to pick up her Breakfast for her. Another nice day out, 81 degrees and partly sunny. In the upcoming days our highs will be in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s, Fall is coming! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes.

 

 

We just had Ribs last week but Mom loves Ribs, so I have to keep Mom happy! I bought a package of the Curly’s Baby Back Ribs from Meijer earlier today. The thing I like about these Ribs is they are a lot easier and quicker to prepare. And they are good tasting Ribs!

 

 

To prepare them, it couldn’t be easier; The package instructions – Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove ribs from package and place on baking sheet; cover with foil. Bake 20-25 minutes. For extra Sauce we used Jack Daniel’s Honey BBQ Sauce.

 

 

The Ribs came out incredible! Tender, flavorful, and bursting with that BBQ flavor! Curly’s Baby Back Ribs is a very delicious and time saving way to have some good Ribs! I had bought 2 packages of them, I have the other one in the freezer, to be used soon! Good job on the Ribs there Curly!

 

For a side I tried another Reser’s Main Street Bistro side dish, Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I came across these Meijer. And we are hooked on them!. We had the Sliced Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Scalloped Potatoes. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other’s were. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another delicious Potato Dish! Seasoned just right and you can hints of taste from the Butter and Sour Cream. I’m a proud member of the Main Street Bistro Nation! For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

Slow-Cooker Chuck Roast with Potatoes and Carrots, Perfect Prime Rib,

This slow-cooker chuck roast is winter comfort food at its finest. A bright, slightly sweet sauce balances the rich and tender braised beef. You can substitute multi-colored baby potatoes (halved) for the Yukon variety and fresh fennel fronds for the parsley, if desired…………………………

Perfect Prime Rib
Cooking prime rib can be intimidating–it’s such a big piece of meat and you’re usually making it for a special occasion, like Christmas or a formal dinner, so you want to get it just right. But it needn’t be stressful: This easy prime rib recipe calls for just a handful of ingredients and lays out how to cook prime rib so it’s juicy, tender and full of flavor, without a lot of fuss. Cooking the prime rib low and slow safeguards the meat from cooking unevenly. See the Tips section below for more advice on making the perfect prime rib. And if you have leftovers, they make a killer sandwich!……………………………….

Beef Rib Roast with Mushrooms and Fennel
The edible wild mushrooms you can find depend on where you live. They add woodsy and earthy flavors, but cultivated cremini and white buttons are delicious here too. Well-stocked supermarkets often have cultivated “wild” varieties like hen of the woods, matsutake, yellowfoot and hedgehog–all great in this recipe………………………………
