Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 


I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. More rain and thunderstorms with a high of 78 degrees and humid. Mom needed a few things from Jungle Jim’s International Market so we went there about 8:00 this morning. It gets crowded there and being in a mobilty cart it pays to get there early to get a cart and parking spot! As always I’m like a small child in a candy store when I go! They have my favorite Deli, Produce, Meat and Seafood departments. There’s always something new at that store. We went at the right time, as we got home a monsoon hit! Timing is everything! For Dinner tonight it’s Leftovers, I’m heating up the Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread leftover from last night. No way I was going to let these leftovers go to waste! I’ll be having this again before long. I’ve left the post from last night for the description and cooking directions. Enjoy!

 

 

For the Dirty Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice. The Mix includes a Long Grain Rice Mix with Vegetables and Spices. I added the Sausage. Really looking forward to this meal!

 

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; I first prepared the Turkey Sausage. I used Johnsonville Turkey Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. First time using these, and they look delicious! Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in a 3-quart saucepan. Removed them from the skillet to plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces and returned them to the skillet. When done I drained the fat. Stirred in 2 1/2 cups of Water and the Rice Mix into the saucepan until it was well blended. Brought it to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and covered. Simmered for 25 minutes until the Rice was tender.

 

 

 


Removed the sauce pan from the heat. Let it stand for 5 minutes, fluffed the Rice up and served! Delicious, the Sausage is so good and Rice and Mix all made some fantastic Dirty Rice and Sausage! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I toasted a couple of Eggo’s – Nutri Grain Waffles. I also fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Had my morning cup of bigelow Decaf Green Tea, as always! More rain and thunderstorms also gusty winds, high of 83 degrees. They are saying we are in for a lot of rain the next 3 – 4 days, about 3-5 inches! They were saying due to all the rains we’ve had this Spring that none of the Farmers have been able to get their crops out and it’s too late now for some crops to be planted. What a shame! So for Dinner tonight I’m preparing Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

 

For the Dirty Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice. The Mix includes a Long Grain Rice Mix with Vegetables and Spices. I added the Sausage. Really looking forward to this meal!

Today’s Menu: Smoked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to be at my family Doctor to discuss the results of my test that showed I have severe Diabetic Neuropathy. I think I may have the test redone. I’m just not showing the signs that the tests says I should be showing, or at least not showing right now. Either way it’s just something new I have to deal with if I do have the damage. More to come. Anyway after I left the doctor’s I picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Then I went and got her car washed and filled up with gas. Next I went to Meijer for a few items. It’s a beautiful Spring Day out there today! 74 degrees and Sunny! For Dinner tonight I prepared Smoked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

 

 

 

I came across a new item while at Meijer, Latitude 45 Smoke Roasted Atlantic Salmon. So I’ll be using this for the first time along with a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Salmon comes in a sealed plastic container. I sampled it at Meijer and it was Love after one taste! I bought a couple of containers of it, with more to come! It’s all ready, just open and serve. Has such a delicious and fresh taste to it, huge fan already!

 

 

 

 

 

 


For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a micowavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one my favorites from the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with the Smoked Salmon.

 

 

 

 

To serve I made a bed of the Rice and topped it with the Smoked Salmon. I love this dish! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Coll Whip Free.

Turkey Enchilada Poblano Peppers
In this healthy take on a turkey enchilada recipe, we stuff everything into a roasted poblano pepper shell rather than tortillas to pack an extra serving of veggies into this meal. If you can’t find poblano peppers, you can substitute green bell peppers instead……………..

Squash-Stuffed Roasted Poblano Peppers
When fresh, poblanos have a wonderful, somewhat sweet heat that makes a terrific vessel for rich-tasting butternut squash stuffing. Accompanied by corn tortillas or rice and beans, this makes a special vegetarian entree. Most of the preparation can be done in advance and the recipe can easily be doubled. Look for dark green poblanos about 5 inches long, with broad shoulders at the stem, tapering to a pointy tip. Wash your hands thoroughly after removing the seeds or wear rubber gloves; most of the chile oils are found in the seeds and connective membranes………………..

Tuna-Stuffed Peppers
These tuna-stuffed peppers are ubiquitous in delis all over Susa, Italy………..

Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

Today’s Menu: Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

To start this Tuesday off I had one of favorites, French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, 1/2 cup of 2% Milk, 1 medium Egg, Ground Nut Meg, Ground Cinnamon, and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Mix the Milk, Egg and Spices together in a bowl and dip the Bread in mixture. Fry until each side is golden brown. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Just fry for 8 minutes and done. For the Syrup topping I used Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Oh how I love French Toast! It’s 50 degrees and partly sunny out today. Ran a couple of errands and stopped by Meijer for a few items. Back home I was all caught up on everything and just took it easy. For Dinner tonight its Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Tilapia while at Meijer earlier. I purchased 2 big and beautiful fillets of the Tilapia, having 1 for Dinner and froze the other one. I also bought a Red Snapper Fillet. So I had already rinsed the fillet in cold water and had it in plastic bag the fridge. To prepare it I’ll need; the Tilapia, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. To start I heated Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet was ready I cooked the Tilapia until Golden Brown, about 3 minutes per side. I had not had Tilapia in a while and it tasted great! Moist with that excellent Zatarain’s Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNCLE BEN’S® READY RICE® Long Grain and Wild

The rice that’s always ready to enjoy. Now, you can have our original delicious Long Grain & Wild Rice recipe with 23 herbs and seasonings in just 90 seconds. This microwaveable pouch also eliminates prep and cleanup. UNCLE BEN’S®. ‘Perfect Every Time’®.
