Today’s Menu: Baked Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Thomas Light 100 Calorie Multigrain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather again. It’s been in the 50’s and 60’s and it was 29 degrees this morning and a high of 37 degrees, mostly cloudy. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. On the way back home I stopped and got gas and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Later on grabbed a broom and the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

 

 

 

I had posted a while back that they opened a new Super Kroger store to repalce the smaller Kroger up the road from us. The other day when I was there I seen that they had the PERDUE® OVEN READY WHOLE SEASONED ROASTER. With the bigger store comes way more of selections of food! The prices are still high though which is why if I have time I go to Meijer or Walmart to do most of my shopping. Anyway it was great finding the Perdue Roaster again!

 

 

 

 

 

As I said it came frozen so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it is a breeze! It came frozen and its in a cooking bag, ready for the oven! To start I first preheat the oven to 400°F. I Cut open outer bag and removed Oven Ready Roaster, sealing in a cooking bag. Placed in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Cut a 1 inch slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. The instructions said that the Cooking bag will expand during cooking and to allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls. The instructions say the best way to prepare it is from fresh. Once oven had been pre-heated to 400°F, I lowered oven temperature to 350°F. Placed the pan with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roasted for approximately 2 hours 10 minutes until a meat thermometer registered an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

 

 

 

Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer Roaster to serving plate or cutting board. Removed the string from legs and carved. The Chicken came out perfect! Moist, juicy, and flat-out delicious! So glad I can find these again!

 

 

 

 

 


To go with the Chicken you can’t go wrong with Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 


Then for another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. Just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I also had come across a loaf the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Loaf Bread buried in the freezer. So I baked that. Still haven’t found a place that carries it since Meijer no longer has it. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

PERDUE® OVEN READY WHOLE SEASONED ROASTER
Perfectly seasoned, juicy and convenient. Perdue’s Oven Ready Roaster cooking bag saves time on traditional roasting and makes cleanup a snap. Fresh, refrigerated.

COOKING and PREP

* OPEN: Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster, sealing in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan or baking dish, breast side up.

* SLIT: Cut a 1 inch slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. Note: Cooking bag will expand during cooking; allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls.

* COOK: From FRESH (Preferred Method): Once oven has been pre-heated to 400°F, lower oven temperature to 350°F. Place pan or baking dish with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 2 hours 10 minutes (130 minutes) until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

* COOK: From FROZEN: Once oven has been pre-heated to 400°F, lower oven temperature to 350°F. Place pan or baking dish with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 4 hours until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

* SERVE: Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer Roaster to serving plate or cutting board. Remove string from legs before carving. Remaining juices in bag can be used for delicious gravy.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, rainy, and 52 degrees out today. Well today was clean and straighten the Kitchen day. Cleaned the counters, fridge, freezer, and stove. Then hit the canned good shelves and straightened those out, had to toss a few cans that were buried in the back that had expired. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine,Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

 

 

 

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

 

 


I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas 100 Calorie Light Multi Grain English Muffin and made a Breakfast Sandwich. I also lightly fried an al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We actually have had a few peeks of the sun today! But still rain on and off and very humid, 87 degrees. Ran the sweeper and dusted. Then did a load of laundry. After Lunch I made some Turkey and Black Bean Burritos and froze them. I used the leftover Turkey and Black Bean Taco Mixture to make the Burritos. Wrapped each one in foil and froze them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag. They’ll be great to grab one out of freezer and have it for Lunch. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers. I had the Shrimp w/ Fettuccine and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread leftover from last night. I’ve left the post from last night for directions and details. Have a good one!

 

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

To prepare the Buitoni Fettuccine; I filled a large Sauce Pan with 4 quarts Water and a couple of shakes of Morton’s Light Salt. Turned it on high heat. When it was a full boil I added the Fettuccine. Reduced the heat for a gentle boil of the Pasta for 2 minutes, stirred frequently. Removed from the heat and drained the water. Seasoned the Pasta with Extra Light Olive Oil, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Morton’s Light Salt, and Dried Oregano.

 

 

 

To serve, in a bowl, I made a bed of the Fettuccine and topped it with the Shrimp. I love Shrimp and Pasta! The Fettuccine was tender and so delicious. Then with the added Shrimp it just made that much better! I topped it with some Kraft Grated Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crunchy Pop Corn Shrimp and Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Another long night dealing with the painful Phantom Pains. Very little sleep last night. These having been occurring too often lately to me! I keep a journal of habits and everything I eat, and activities to see if there is something that triggers the Phantom Pains. But there is just nothing there. They come and go as they please. Not much I can do except to go on. Anyway just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Most of the day I just rested and caught up on sleep after the Phantom Pains quit around 11:00 this morning. Not much of an appetite tonight, I wanted a light Dinner. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Crunchy Pop Corn Shrimp and Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

Being very tired I wanted a hot meal but something easy to prepare. I had a box of Kroger Wild Caught Crunchy Pop Corn Shrimp in the freezer. Shrimp sounded good so that’s what I’m having tonight. Very easy to prepare and a hot meal.

 

 

 

 

 

I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Next I got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. I gave it a light spray of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and lined the Shrimp up on the sheet. I gave the top of the Shrimp a light spray of Pam also. I’m baking them 11 minutes, flipping them over after 5 minutes to finish baking. Very tasty Shrimp, I’ve these for Lunch a few times, really enjoy them. Makes a good meal when you don’t have a big appetite. Served it with a side of Heinz Cocktail Sauce.

 

 

 

I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Diet Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Shrimp – They provide key nutrients. Aside from protein, shrimp provide a pretty impressive array of nutrients. Four ounces steamed contains over 100% of the Daily Value for selenium, over 75% for vitamin B12, over 50% for phosphorous, and over 30% for choline, copper, and iodine.

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Had another bout with Phantom Pains. It made for a sleepless and very long night! The Phantom Pains finally let up around 11:00 this morning. Oh how I wish there was a cure for these. Here’s a little on Phantom Pains – Phantom pain is pain that feels like it’s coming from a body part that’s no longer there. Doctors once believed this post-amputation phenomenon was a psychological problem, but experts now recognize that these real sensations originate in the spinal cord and brain. And I can tell you the pain is as if my left leg was really there, very painful. So anyway I didn’t do much of anything today. Outside its showers and thunderstorms on and off through out the day and 88 degrees. Good day to catch up on some rest and sleep, and that was my day. For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread.

 

I wanted a hot meal but one that was easy to prepare. The Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli doesn’t get much easier and at the same time a very tasty meal. It comes in a can and to prepare it; just empty contents into medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot. And it’s done! Doesn’t get much easier than that. Delicious, easy to prepare, and 1 sauce pan to clean. Nice size Ravioli, good tasting Tomato and Cheese Sauce, and love the Cheese that’s in the Ravioli. Makes a good hot meal. And it’s only 180 calories and 28 net carbs per serving. I topped it with a sprinkle of Basil and Shaved Parmesan Cheese. It’s 210 calories and 36 net carbs per serving.

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast morning I toasted a Healthy Life Multi-Grain English Muffin that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Home Depot to check out the Grills. They had a few on sale I wanted to check out. Didn’t purchase a Grill but picked up Mom a couple of Hanging Baskets of Flowers for outside. Not much else going on today! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans.

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo had their 16 oz. Hanging Tender Steaks on sale a weeks ago and I ordered a couple of them. I had prepared 1 of them a few weeks ago and I’m having the other one for Dinner tonight. I had it in the freezer so I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To season it I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Dried Rosemary, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

For the Steak; I rinsed the Hanger Steak and pat it dry. Then I grabbed a sharp fillet knife and ran the knife along one side of the sinew that runs down the center, creating two fillets. Remove the sinew from fillet that it remains attached to half of the fillet with knife. When I first found this recipe I didn’t know what the word “sinew” meant. I looked it up and the definition is; sinew – a piece of tough fibrous tissue uniting muscle to bone or bone to bone; a tendon or ligament. Learned something new! Which is why I enjoy cooking so much, you’re always learning something! To continue, next I rubbed the steaks with the Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Pepper, and Rosemary . Cover and allow it to rest at room temperature for 2 hours. I cut the other half of the Steak in half again and I’ll be having them for a couple of Steak and Eggs Breakfasts with them.

 

To start I got out a Cast Iron Skillet out. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the Skillet on medium heat. Next I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Then to start I pan fried it, on medium heat about 2 minutes per side. Starting out cooking it on the stove gave it a nice sear to start. Then I put the Skillet in the oven and roasted it until it had internal temperature of 145 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect, love using Cast Iron Skillets; from the stove to the oven! After removing it from the oven I put the Steak on a plate and lest it rest for 5 minutes before serving. These Steaks are so moist and tender and have that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. The juices off the Steak was just incredible! I also prepared some sauteed Mushrooms to go with Steak.

 


For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared some fresh, just picked Green Beans. Mom’s Cousin, who used to bring me the Lake Okeechobee Crappie, called and said their Green Beans were in and come out and pick some up. We love fresh Green Beans! She gave us 2 large gallon plastic bags full. So we cooked them up for Dinner tonight. Nothing like fresh Green Beans! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo – 16 OZ. HANGING TENDER STEAK

Also known as the hanger steak, this is a coveted favorite of butchers. There is only one hanging tender steak per bison and it is cut from the primal plate. The deep rich flavor and delicate tenderness requires less cooking time. Roast whole or cut for medallions or kebabs. 1 lb.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs and Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and served. Love this Breakfast to start my day! We have an excessive heat warning out for the 2nd straight day. 94 degrees out but the heat index is at 108 degrees. After Breakfast I went grocery shopping at Meijer. On the way back I picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for Mom. Back home I painted a couple of shelves out in the shed. I’ve got 3 more to paint but it got too hot in the shed to finish, I’ll finish tomorrow. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine,Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

 

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Love this Bread! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Green Tea Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Skillet Ultimate Cheeseburger (Turkey) Mac One Pan Dinner w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

For Breakfast on this very hot and humid Sunday Morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham , especially for Breakfast! 98 degrees, HUMID, and a heat index of 105 out today. Even worse than yesterday. Went to Kroger for Mom after I ate and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Mom went on to Church after she ate. I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then got out the hedge clippers and trimmed some vines and a couple of bushes. Started getting way too hot I headed in for the day. Did some laundry and cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight its a Skillet Ultimate Cheeseburger (Turkey) Mac One Pan Dinner w/ Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

I used Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac. The dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 2 cups of water, the Seasoning Packet and Pasta. Simmer for 11 – 13 minutes and add the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 370 calories and 26 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as I did!

 

This always comes out so good, a real Comfort Food! The Velveeta Cheese along with the Pasta and Jennie- O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast are perfect together! And it’s Parent Approved, my Mom loved it! I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Trop -A – Rocka Diet Snapple.
