Toady’s Menu: Dirty Rice and Ground Turkey w/ Baked French Bread

 

For Breakfast I prepared 3 slices of Bacon, a Sunny Side Up Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’m ready to face the day, I think! Started a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then it was outside. I watered my Pepper Plants and my Tomato Plants. Now that the weather has stayed hot my Plants are getting loaded with Peppers and Tomatoes. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the driveway area. Well hopefully the Cicadas are dying out, not nearly as many so far today! Before heading in, the garbage trucks ran this morning and went around and got 8 of them and moved them up to their house for them. Inside finished up the laundry. Then I dug out some large Plastic Tubs out of the shed. Cleaned them up and used them to pack stuff out of the spare room. I’m getting it straightened up for when they install the new flooring later in July. For Dinner tonight I prepared Dirty Rice and Ground Turkey w/ Baked French 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 Ground Turkey Sausage and 1 can of Bush’s Chili Black Beans. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread Loaf.

 

I first got a skillet and cooked the the Jennie – O Lean Ground Turkey. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. Seasoned the Turkey with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Cumin and Dried Cilantro. About half way through I added a can of Drained Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans. Stirred until well mixed and continued cooking until the Turkey was almost done. I didn’t want to over cook the Turkey or Beans because I was going to add them to the Dirty Rice as it was cooking.

 

As the Ground Turkey was cooking I grabbed another skillet and prepared the Dirty Rice. 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. With about 5 minutes of cooking time left I added the Turkey and Black Bean Mix. I stirred that in until it was well mixed and finished out the cooking time.

 

 

I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Loaf Bread. Very Good Meal tonight! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey and Black Beans worked perfect with the Zatarain’s Dirty Rice! Excellent Meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Sweet and Sour Chicken
This 20-minute meal delivers a faster, lighter and more flavorful takeout alternative. It’s chock-full of fresh, crispy veggies and juicy chicken pieces, and it reheats well for meal-prep lunches. If you like heat, sub Sriracha for some of the ketchup……….

Beef Pad Thai
We’ve bulked up the serving size of beef pad thai by adding in lots of healthy veggies like matchstick carrots, snap peas and scallions. Look for whole-grain brown-rice pad thai noodles to add an additional 3 grams fiber to each serving…………

Air-Fryer Turkey Stuffed Peppers
Stuffed peppers are a classic family meal–and they’re fun to eat, too. Instead of roasting the sweet peppers in the oven, use an air fryer to get them crisp-tender but not soggy…………

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

May 25, 2021 at 6:00 AM | Posted in Kitchen Hints | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Is your Rice turning out too sticky………….

Essentially when the rice cools, the starch crystalises, causing grains of rice to cling together via a sticky starchy glue. The butter doesn’t stop the starch from becoming sticky, but it does cause a barrier that stops this starch “glue” from connecting between grains.

Next time – Rinse. Give your rice a quick rinse to remove extra starches, this will help keep it from becoming sticky. Ratio: Use a ratio of 1 cup white rice to 2 cups water. Do Not Stir: When you first add the rice, give it one or two quick stirs and then avoid stirring it. Stirring rice can release starches and make it sticky.

Today’s Menu: Red Beans and Rice w/ Cajun Shrimp and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, it’s beautiful! After my Tea I headed off to Kroger with Mom, she needed for few items and wanted to go in. Then I took her to Meijer, she wanted some books to read and to their Garden Center. Finally, we stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home I got the cart out and the yard tools and did some yard work out in this beautiful weather. For Dinner tonight Red Beans and Rice w/ Cajun Shrimp and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Shrimp I used the Meijer Frozen Jumbo Shrimp and for the Garlic Loaf I used a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread. This had the makings of a delicious Meal from the start! I got the bag of Shrimp out of the freezer last night and let it thaw overnight.

 

To prepare it I’ll need; the box of the Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Mix, 3 cups Water, Extra Light Olive Oil, and the Shrimp. Mixed 3 cups of water, Rice Mix and 2 tbsp. of Light Olive Oil in 2-quart saucepan until it was well blended. Brought to a boil. Then reduced the heat to low and covered. I got the Shrimp out of the fridge and seasoned them with Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

 

Simmered for 25 minutes, until the rice was tender. Stirred occasionally to prevent the Rice and Beans from sticking. With 4 minutes of cooking time left I added the Shrimp. When done I removed the skillet from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. And done ready to serve! Like the Sausage and Dirty Rice I had last week, this is one fantastic Meal! The Red Beans and Rice is Seasoned perfect. It made plenty of both the Red Beans and the Rice. And the Shrimp worked perfect with it. Plenty of great leftovers!

 

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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees, rain and thunderstorms out today. Not a thing to day today, Nothing! So that’s what I did, Nothing. Caught up on some programs I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice.

 

I love the combo of Salmon and Rice! I had purchased a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer and had it in the freezer. I sat the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

To prepare it; I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Laid the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one of my favorites from Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, although 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 Salmon. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

One of America’s Favorites – Chimichanga

April 26, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Chimichanga

A chimichanga is a deep-fried burrito that is common in Tex-Mex and other Southwestern U.S. cuisine. The dish is typically prepared by filling a flour tortilla with various ingredients, most commonly rice, cheese, beans, and a meat such as machaca (dried meat), carne adobada (marinated meat), carne seca (dried beef), or shredded chicken, and folding it into a rectangular package. It is then deep-fried, and can be accompanied by salsa, guacamole, sour cream, or carne asada.

The origin of the chimichanga is uncertain. By some accounts, it originated in Mexico, in others, by accident in Arizona, United States. Given the variant chivichanga, specifically employed in Mexico, one derivation indicated that immigrants to the United States brought the dish with them, mainly through Sonora into Arizona. The words chimi and changa come from two Mexican Spanish terms: chamuscado (past participle of the verb chamuscar), which means seared or singed, and changa, related to chinga (third-person present tense form of the vulgar verb chingar, a rude expression for the unexpected or a small insult.

Chimichanga from Amigos in Melbourne, Australia.

The origin of the chimichanga is uncertain. By some accounts, it originated in Mexico, in others, by accident in Arizona, United States. Given the variant chivichanga, specifically employed in Mexico, one derivation indicated that immigrants to the United States brought the dish with them, mainly through Sonora into Arizona.

According to one source, Monica Flin, the founder of the Tucson, Arizona, restaurant El Charro, accidentally dropped a burrito into the deep-fat fryer in 1922. She immediately began to utter a Spanish profanity beginning “chi…” (chingada), but quickly stopped herself and instead exclaimed chimichanga, a Spanish equivalent of “thingamajig”. Knowledge and appreciation of the dish spread slowly outward from the Tucson area, with popularity elsewhere accelerating in recent decades. Though the chimichanga is now found as part of the Tex-Mex cuisine, its roots within the U.S. are mainly in Tucson, Arizona.

Woody Johnson, founder of Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen, claimed he had invented the chimichanga in 1946 when he put some burritos into a deep fryer as an experiment at his original restaurant Woody’s El Nido, in Phoenix, Arizona. These “fried burritos” became so popular that by 1952, when Woody’s El Nido became Macayo’s, the chimichanga was one of the restaurant’s main menu items. Johnson opened Macayo’s in 1952. Although no official records indicate when the dish first appeared, retired University of Arizona folklorist Jim Griffith recalls seeing chimichangas at the Yaqui Old Pascua Village in Tucson in the mid-1950s.

According to data presented by the United States Department of Agriculture, a typical 183-gram (6.5-ounce) serving of a beef and cheese chimichanga contains 443 calories, 20 grams protein, 39 grams carbohydrates, 23 grams total fat, 11 grams saturated fat, 51 milligrams cholesterol, and 957 milligrams of sodium.

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 56 degrees, windy and partly cloudy out today. I had to be at Meijer at 12:20 this afternoon for my 2nd Covid Shot. I’m glad I’m getting the Pfizer Shot instead of the Johnson and Johnson, considering the trouble they are having with J and J shot. For Dinner tonight it’s a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice.

One of America’s Favorites – Loco Moco MONDAY

March 29, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

A loco moco plate lunch, with soba noodles (left) and macaroni salad (right)

Loco moco is a dish featured in contemporary Hawaiian cuisine. There are many variations, but the traditional loco moco consists of white rice, topped with a hamburger, a fried egg, and brown gravy. Variations may include bacon, ham, Spam, tofu, kalua pork, Portuguese sausage, teriyaki beef, teriyaki chicken, mahi-mahi, shrimp, oysters, and other meats.

 

The dish was reportedly created at the Lincoln Grill restaurants in Hilo, Hawaii, in 1949 by its proprietors, Richard Inouye and his wife, Nancy, at the request of teenagers from the Lincoln Wreckers Sports club seeking something that differed from a sandwich, was inexpensive, and yet could be quickly prepared and served. They asked Nancy to put some rice in a bowl, a hamburger patty over the rice, and then top it with brown gravy. The egg came later. The teenagers named the dish Loco Moco after one of their members, George Okimoto, whose nickname was “Crazy”. George Takahashi, who was studying Spanish at Hilo High School, suggested using Loco, which is Spanish for crazy. They tacked on “moco” which “rhymed with loco and sounded good”. To Spanish-speakers, however, the name can sound very odd, given that they hear it as “crazy snot” (moco is Spanish for “mucus”).

Fish loco moco

This dish was featured on the “Taste of Hawai’i” episode of Girl Meets Hawai’i, a Travel Channel show hosted by Samantha Brown. The episode features the dish being served at the popular restaurant, Hawaiian Style Cafe, in Waimea together with the plate lunch, another Hawaiian specialty dish.

The loco moco was also featured on a Honolulu-based episode of the Travel Channel show Man v. Food (this episode aired in the show’s second season). The host, Adam Richman, tried the dish at the Hukilau Café, located in nearby Laie. Richman also tried an off-the-menu loco moco at a San Francisco eatery called Namu Gaji on his 2014 show, Man Finds Food. In 2018, on a different episode of the revived Man v. Food, host Casey Webb tried a loaded version of the loco moco at Da Kitchen in Maui.
