Today’s Menu: Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread

 

 

I made a Ham and Cheese Omelet for Breakfast this morning. I used Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, Meijer Diced Ham, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain Showers and windy out today, high of 75 degrees. Not much going on today. I haven’t felt up to power the couple of days. Back in 2003 when my Cancer Trial ended I have days that I get chills and it almost feels like the flu. It lasts about 3 days, and this is the 3rd day so hopefully I’ll be better tomorrow. I don’t have these too often, thankfully! So it was a lot of rest today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread.

 

 

 

 

We Love this Pizza Pasta from Banquet! This is one of my favorite boxed foods, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. Nothing like a quick, easy and delicious comfort food. I can only find it at Walmart or online now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway it’s got two of my favorites in it, pasta and pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta. I also added a few slices of Turkey Pepperoni and sliced Portabello Mushrooms to the mix. For the preparation you can bake it or prepare it on the stove top, which is how I prepared it. Add 1 cup of water, stir and mix, and simmer and you have your dinner! This came out fantastic! Really had a good Pizza flavor to it and excellent Sauce! The Sauce with the Mushrooms, Sausage, and Pepperoni provides the great flavoring. Easily prepared and makes a hearty and delicious meal. I know it’s a boxed meal, I can’t help it. It’s always been a favorite of mine since the first time I tried it!

 

 

 

 

Along with the Pizza Pasta I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta

When only comfort food will do, Banquet Homestyle Bakes are the perfect choice. Each comes complete with everything you need to make a delicious and hearty straight-from-the-oven meal. So you’ll spend less time worrying about your meal—and more time enjoying it.

*Pepperoni and sausage included
*5 minute preparation oven or stove top

Stove Top:

1. Stir Together Can of Sauce and 1 Cup Hot Water In Medium Skillet.
2. Stir In Pasta Until Well Coated. Heat to Boiling.
3. Reduce Heat. Cover and Simmer About 15 Minutes, Or Until Pasta Is Tender, Stirring Occasionally.

Storing Apples……….

Apples like cold temperatures, but since they emit a lot of ethylene gas, keep them away from fruits and vegetables that are sensitive to ethylene gas and immediately remove apples that are starting to go bad. One bad Apple can spoil the whole group!

5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Lite Toast

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Lite Toast

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multigrain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its finally starting to fill like Spring around here! Cloudy but a high of 77 degrees! I finally found a handyman and someone to mow the lawn! He lives about 2 streets from me and he’s great references and lives close by. I went to Home depot after Breakfast. I needed some paint, paint brushes, and picked up a bag grass seed. I’ve got a couple places in the yard that need to be seeded. Then I’m the deck painted next week. Go the old homestead looking good! For dinner tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Lite Toast.

 

 

 

 

I’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 5 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

 

 

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

 

 

 

 

 

For another side I had a Salad. I used a bag of Dole Greener Selections Salad Mix. For the Dressing I used Kraft Classic Catalina Lite Dressing. I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak
