Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Mettwursts

 

 

To start the 28th day of June off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had to have dad at the Doctor’s office at 10:00 this morning for a checkup. The Doc said he was doing okay nothing new. But he did tell us that lungs are getting weaker every visit though. Not much anyone can do. Outside it’s a bit more humid, windier, and 83 degrees. I went to Kroger for Mom to pick up a prescription for Dad and stopped by the bank for her. A pretty simple Dinner tonight, I prepared a couple of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Mettwursts.

 

 

I had purchased a couple of packages of the Bluegrass Lean Mettwurst while at Jungle Jim’s Market. I had kept one package out that I had been having for Lunch and froze the remaining package. Which I had laid in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I used a medium size skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added the Metts. I then added water to the pan, just enough water to cover about a 1/4 of Mett. Turned the heat on medium and covered the pan. I turned the Metts frequently to get a nice even cook on them. When the water had boiled down I cooked them an extra 3 minutes to brown them. They turned out fantastic, nice and meaty! I served them on Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. A couple of Metts was plenty for Dinner tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

Woke up hungry this morning. So for Breakfast I prepared 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, 1 Egg (Sunnyside Up), 2 toasted slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (Lightly Buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Right after Breakfast I had to be at the Doctor’s office. I had my 2 year check up of my right hip replacement. I go every 2 years and they take x-rays to make sure everything is good, and it was! The x-rays came back looking good. After that I stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Back home I repaired an outdoor chair for Mom, replaced a couple of screws and cleaned it up. Then got the cart out and did some yard work, having trouble with weeds in the back yard. Everything done took the cart out for a ride and picked the mail up. For dinner tonight its Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Sliced Carrots and Whole Grain Bread.

 

To start; I cut up 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts into bite size pieces, seasoning them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Litehouse Poultry Seasoning . I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil in a large skillet until done.

 

 

 

 

As the Chicken finished I then added the can of Fixins’ to the skillet. The Fixins’ is a can of Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’. Margaret Holmes no longer makes it, lack of sales they say. I’ve been purchasing cans of it on various web sites but I can no longer can find it online and I’m down to my final 4 cans. But anyway, it comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, Cooked until it the Sauce was bubbling and heated throughout. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. The Sauce coats the Chicken and gives it incredible flavor.

 

I also had heated up a small can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then for dessert later tonight a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 

Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n’ Noodles

Chicken n’ Noodles will become a comfort-food favorite in any household. Add boneless, skinless chicken breast to a can of Simple Suppers Chicken n’ Noodles, which is filled with plump noodle dumplings and special seasonings.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled an Egg, reheated 3 leftover Potato Pancakes, Fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Our streak of beautiful days continues today, sunny and 74 degrees! Did a few things around the house and then after Lunch got the cart out and did some yard work. Had everything done so I too k the cart for a ride around the neighborhood and enjoyed this beautiful day! For Dinner tonight Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

I had some large Shrimp in a bag in the freezer. Sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I first washed them off in cold water and patted dry with paper towels. I then seasoned them with a sprinkle of Sea Salt and Old Bay Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

Next I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the pan on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Shrimp, fried the Shrimp in 2 batches so not to overcrowd the skillet. Fried the Shrimp 3 minutes a side. Ended up with a nice plate full of Shrimp! Love the flavor of the Old Bay Seasoning on Shrimp.

 

 

 

As I was frying the Shrimp I started my Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese Dinner. I picked a box of the Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar the other day at Kroger.

 

 

 

 

 

Start by boiling 8 cups of water in medium saucepan. Stir in Macaroni.Cook 12 min. or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain. Do not rinse. Return to pan. Squeeze the Cheese Sauce over hot Macaroni. Stir until blended and serve. Came out nice and cheesy with excellent flavor. I really like the Cracker Barrel Mac and Cheese varieties that they have. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread and had a slice of that also. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Peanut Butter Carmel Ice Cream Candy Bar.

 

 

 

 

 

Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese Dinner – Sharp Cheddar

Today, we offer that same distinctive flavor in our rich macaroni and cheese. Smooth, creamy and full of flavor—one bite will keep you coming back for more.

One of America’s Favorites – Cioppino

June 26, 2017 at 5:43 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment

Cioppino

Cioppino is a fish stew originating in San Francisco, California. It is considered an Italian-American dish, and is related to various regional fish soups and stews of Italian cuisine.

 

 

 

 

 

Cioppino with bread

Cioppino is traditionally made from the catch of the day, which in San Francisco is typically a combinati on of Dungeness crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels, and fish all sourced from salt-water ocean; in this case the Pacific. The seafood is then combined with fresh tomatoes in a wine sauce.

The dish can be served with toasted bread, either local sourdough or French bread. In the dish, the bread is as a starch, similar to a pasta. It is freely dipped into the ample quantity of sauce. The bread then absorbs, holds, and modulates the flavorful yet slender (watery) sauce; that is to be freely “sopped up” by the heavy, full bodied breads. The bread’s consumption, after dipping into the sauce, prolongs the flavors on the palate when eating the dish.

 

 

 

Cioppino was developed in the late 1800s primarily by Italian immigrants who settled in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, many from the port city of Genoa. When a fisherman came back empty handed, they would walk around with a pot to the other fishermen asking them to chip in whatever they could. What ever ended up in the pot became their Cioppino. The fishermen that chipped in expected the same treatment if they came back empty handed in the future. It later became a staple as Italian restaurants proliferated in San Francisco.

The name comes from ciuppin which is the name of a classic soup from the Italian region Liguria, similar in flavor to cioppino but with less tomato and using Mediterranean seafood cooked to the point that it falls apart.

The dish also shares its origin with other regional Italian variations of seafood stew similar to ciuppin, including cacciucco from Tuscany, brodetto di pesce from Abruzzo, and others. Similar dishes can be found in coastal regions throughout the Mediterranean, from Portugal to Greece. Examples of these include suquet de peix from Catalan-speaking regions and bouillabaisse from Provence.

 

Cioppino classique

Generally the seafood is cooked in broth and served in the shell, including the crab, which is often served halved or quartered. It therefore requires special utensils, typically a crab fork and cracker. Depending on the restaurant, it may be accompanied by a bib to prevent food stains on clothing, a damp napkin, and a second bowl for the shells. A variation, commonly called “lazy man’s cioppino,” is served with shells pre-cracked or removed.
