Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Footlong Wieners w/ Baked Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries

 

Queen City Footlong fries 008
I had went to Kroger early this morning to pick up a couple of items when I ran into a huge display of Footlongs and Footlong Buns! I couldn’t resist it I had to buy a package of each! Having these always reminds me of when I was growing up we would always go to A and W’s Root Beer Stand every Summer Weekend. They were only open during the Summer but packed day and night. Nothing was better than an A and W Footlong w/ Chili, Cheese, and Mustard with a frozen mug of A&W Root Beer, it got no better than that on those hot Summer Days! So for dinner tonight I prepared Chili and Cheese Footlong Wieners w/ Baked Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries.

They had a couple of brands of Footlongs and I went with the Queen City Sausage Footlong Wieners. Queen City is hard to beat foe quality and their Footlongs were 160 calories where the other brand was at 240 calories, saved 80 calories! To prepare them I boiled them using a long roaster skillet. I put enough water in it to cover the Footlongs about 2″ over them. Brought the water to a boil added the Wieners and boiled about 5 minutes. They came out just right!

To serve them I placed them on a Heiner’s Footlong Bun, first time I ever used them. I wanted to use a thick Turkey Chili with Beans but it was just too many calories so I went with Skyline Chili, just 40 calories. Skyline is a popular Coney and Spaghetti Restaurant here locally and sell a lot of their products in stores. To plate it I topped the Footlong with French’s Yellow Mustard, Diced Onions (I passed on the Onions Mom and Dad love them), Chili, and Sargento Reduced fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. This all makes one heck – of a Chili Cheese Footlong! I also baked up a new type of Ore Ida Fries. Found them at Meijer the other day, Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. These are some killer Fries! The Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt are perfect. They have these in Potato Wedges also, I’m sure their just as good! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Grilled A&W Root Beer BBQ Sauce and Crushed Pineapple Marinated Chicken Breasts w/ Smothered Hash Browns, Grilled Asparagus, and Crescent Rolls

Sunny and 60 degrees out! Cleaned up the grill and fired it up to grill some A&W Root Beer BBQ Sauce and Crushed Pineapple Marinated Chicken Breasts! Love grilling and Chicken tastes even better when you grill it. I used Miller Amish Boneless Chicken Breasts and Marinated them in A&W Root Beer BBQ Sauce and Dole Crushed Pineapple and refrigerated them for about 3 hours. It was the first time I had ever used the A&W Sauce. It was a sweet sauce with a hint of Root Beer, a very good and tasty sauce! I left info on the sauce at the end of the post. I grilled them about 22 minutes flipping them twice. They came out moist and delicious. The sauce really provides a great flavor and with the added Crushed Pineapple they were too good.

For sides I had grilled Asparagus, Smothered Hash Browns and Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. The asparagus was Meijer Brand frozen Grilled Asparagus which I always keep a supply of on hand. I used Simply Potatoes Hash Browns that I seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and topped them with fresh grated Dutch Smoked Gouda Cheese, one of my favorite cheese! Plus I baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. I actually forgot I had them and found them buried in the back of the fridge and they I about a week before expiration so I wanted to use them before that. For dessert later a Slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread. I made this earlier to day adding extra Almond Pieces, Pecan Pieces and Walnut Pieces. Topped it with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
