Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Nutri Grain Eggo’s and I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 61 degrees and mostly sunny out today, 2 days in a row with no rain! After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Dropped that off and headed back out to Menard’s. They had some Whiskey Barrel Plant Buckets and Mom had been wanting one so I purchased 1 for her. I also picked up another plant bucket along with a couple of bags of Peat Moss, 2 bags of Dirt, Weed Spray and a few Vegetable and Spice Plants. I replanted a few of plants and then finished up working on the backyard flower bed. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I had used the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs leftover from yesterday meal. The Meatballs are good size, always fresh, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. Plus they’re a perfect size for Hoagie or Hot Dog Buns, I used Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns.

 

 

 

 

 

For my Pasta Sauce I had used the LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and mine also, it’s got a perfect combination of a robust sauce with a hint of sweetness to it. To prepare it I took a medium size sauce pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Emptied the can of Sauce in the pan and turned the heat on medium. Then I added my Turkey Meatballs and covered the pan and let it simmer until both the Sauce and Meatballs were heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

I’m using Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese as a topping for the Sub. You can use Hoagie Buns but to save on calories and carbs I usually just use Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns. To assemble; open the Bun up, put the Meatballs and Sauce in the Bun , top it with a few shakes of McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning, and top it with the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Love these Meatball Sandwiches! The Larosa’s Sauce just seems to bring the Sandwich together! Sauce is incredible, Turkey Meatballs flavorful and meaty, and the Mozzarella is perfect with Pasta and Sauces.

 

 

 

 

For my Fries I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

To start this rainy Thursday morning off I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and lightly fried a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty. I topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did I say it was raining? Pouring the rain, second straight day. They say by Friday we’ll have 4-5 inches of rain! It’s 51 degrees out. So not a lot going on outside so I did a load of laundry and cleaned the house. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I used the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs leftover from yesterday meal. I always make extra Sauce and Meatballs when I make Spaghetti and Meatballs so I can make a Meatball Hoagie the following day. I’ve been using the Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs for quite a few years now. So thank goodness Kroger finally started carrying them again! The Meatballs are good size, always fresh, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and they’re 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. Plus they’re a perfect size for Hoagie or Hot Dog Buns, I used Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

 

To start the Sunday morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Next I prepared some Ekrich Smoked Turkey Sausage Links. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger and picked up a few items then went to Burger King and picked up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. They normally have McDonald’s but I switched it up a bit and picked up the Burger King Breakfast items. And they really enjoyed them! Cloudy out all day and a high of 42 degrees. Rain Showers moved in the afternoon. Cleaned the house and kept an eye on Dad while Mom was at Church. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Meatball Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu: Cheesy Skillet Classic Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

 

For Breakfast on this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The hot weather has kicked in again, 88 degrees and humid along with some heavy rain on and off through the day. Mom wanted a McMuffin for Breakfast so I went to McDonald’s and picked it up for her. Back home did a load of laundry for Mom. After Lunch went over to see Dad. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cheesy Skillet Classic Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 

Second time using the Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Classic Lasagna. The box contains the Pasta, Seasoning, and Velveeta Cheese Sauce. I added the Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, Water, and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. The instructions call for Ground Beef but as usual I substitute the Ground Beef with the Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. Much healthier option with fewer calories, fat, and carbs.

 

 

 

To make the dish; You will need the 1 lb. Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast and 2 cups water. Cook the 1 lb. Ground Turkey in large skillet, until no longer pink. Add 2 cups water, Pasta and Seasoning; stir. Bring it to a boil. Reduce heat. Cover; simmer 11 min. or until most of the water is gone, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in the Velveeta Cheese Sauce. Top it off with a cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese before serving.

 

 

 

The Lasagna came out fantastic, hot and cheesy! The Seasoning and Cheese was perfect and the Pasta was excellent. Made a very good and hearty Dinner Dish! I also baked a Pillsbury French Bread Loaf. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Cheesy Skillet Classic Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread

 

 

I had another sort of rough night dealing with Phantom Pains. These didn’t hurt too much but hurt enough to where I didn’t get a lot of sleep. For Breakfast it was just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. So I didn’t do a whole today but rest. After Lunch I did go see Dad for awhile. He’s really been doing good in therapy, getting stronger! Back home caught up on a little sleep. For Dinner tonight it’s leftover Cheesy Skillet Classic Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

I really enjoyed the Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Classic Lasagna so I wasn’t going to let the leftovers go to waste. It reheated perfectly! Just sprinkled a little of the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese across the top and served. For Dessert tonight a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. I left yesterday’s original post below. Later!

First time using the Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Classic Lasagna. The box contains the Pasta, Seasoning, and Velveeta Cheese Sauce.

The hot weather has kicked in again, 85 degrees and somewhat humid. Mom wanted a McMuffin for Breakfast so I went to McDonald’s and picked it up for her. Back home did a load of laundry for Mom. About 2:00 I went to the Cincinnati Airport and picked up a friend of mine that was coming to town for a week or so. I took him on to Fairfield and dropped him off at his brother’s place. Good catching up with him. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cheesy Skillet Classic Lasagna w/ Baked French Bread.

(Crock Pot Ribs) – Barbecue Rib Nachos

Today’s Menu: (Crock Pot Ribs) – Barbecue Rib Nachos

 

 

Had a toasted Healthy Life English Muffin, lightly buttered, and a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Right after Breakfast Me and Mom headed to Jungle Jim’s Market in Fairfield. The most amazing grocery store you could ever be in! It’s tough going in and leaving with what you wanted, you always end up with more! We didn’t stay long though, we can’t leave Dad alone too long. Outside it is miserable! It’s sunny and 92 degrees with the humidity at 88%! So no outdoor activities today. Did a few things around the house and watched a couple of shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight a new recipe, and one I was looking forward to try. Tonight its Barbecue Rib Nachos.

 

 

I came across this recipe on Facebook and could not wait to try it, Barbecue Rib Nachos! This has no choice but to be good, Ribs and Nachos, no choice! I purchased the Pork Back Ribs at Meijer yesterday. I’m using Meijer Pork Back Ribs. The Meijer Pork products always turn out great, very moist and tender. I’m preparing them the same way I always do Ribs, in the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

 

 

I started by Marinating the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce. My favorite BBQ Sauce, I purchase this at Kroger. I Ribs came packaged as 1/2 Racks. First time I’ve seen 1/2 Racks like that, good idea though if you are just cooking for one. Plus it saves me time by not having to cut the Ribs, which I have to do to fit in the Crock Pot. So I put the Ribs into a gallon Hefty Bag, added the BBQ Sauce to them, sealed the bag, and let them Marinate overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

Next day to prepare them I first got out the Crock Pot and put the plastic liner in. I love these liners, they make clean up a breeze. I then sprayed the liner with Pam Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 cup of Water, and turned the Crock Pot on to low and put the lid on. Got the Ribs out of the fridge and let them sit for about 20 minutes before adding them to the Crock Pot. I shook off the excess Sauce before putting them in the Crock Pot. The Ribs are in and I put the lid on and let them cook for 7 hours. In about the 4th hour the you can start to smell the aroma of the Ribs!

 

 

Ready to bake!

 

As the Ribs were cooking I gathered my Ingredients to make the Nachos. I’ll need Ribs (which were already coking), JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce (Some for the Ribs and extra for the Nacho Dish), Sargento Shredded Mozzarella, Tostito’s Whole Grain Scoops , Litehouse Spring Onions, Lettuce, and Jalapeno Slices.
 

 

 

 

After 7 hours of Slow Cooking the Ribs are fall off the bone Ribtastic! I removed the Rib Meat from the bones, which was very easy as the bones just pulled out, and set aside. I got out the large Cast Iron Skillet and gave it a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray. Set the oven to Broil. Layer 1/3 of the Scoops with 1/3 of the cheese and BBQ Sauce into the Skillet. Repeat 2 more times until the nachos are built. Broil for 90 seconds or until the Cheese is melted and bubbly. I garnished with some Litehouse Spring Onions, Lettuce, and some Jalapeno Slices.

 

 

 

…and ready to eat!

All I can say is INCREDIBLE! Hats off to the Seasoned Sprinkle website, nothing less than excellent recipe! The Ribs, BBQ Sauce, Cheese, and Scoop Chips all blend together to make this one delicious dish. Ribs and Nachos, go figure! The original recipe and web link is at the end of the post. The original recipe has a recipe for the BBQ Sauce, where i used the JB’S Fat Boy Sauce. Also they used Spare Ribs and I used Pork Back Ribs. It all turned out to be a winning recipe! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce w/ Baked French Bread

Today’s Menu: Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce w/ Baked French Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a packet of Quaker Oats Butter Instant Grits along with a al fresco Apple Maple Chicken Sausage Breakfast Pattie and toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter). Also, as always, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside another nice day, 86 degrees, mostly sunny, but a bit more humid. A high school friend that I’m still in contact with came over and helped me change the batteries in my Hoveround. Afterwards we went over to a new Wings and Rings that opened up for a late lunch. First time I had a Chicken Wing from Wings and Rings in 10 years or more, they were good! Back home did some cleaning outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight tried a new dish, I prepared a Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce w/ Baked French Bread.

 

 

I love these Banquet Homestyle Bakes and for Dinner tonight I’m trying the Banquet Homestyle Bakes – Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce. I’ve tried a couple of the Banquet Homestyle Bakes and both are family favorites, and now we have a third favorite, Pasta and Meatballs in Marinara Sauce. As it says, it’s a Complete Meal Kit. I added 1 1/4 cups of Water, a little Sea Salt for taste, 1 small can of Pennsylvania Dutchman Mushrooms Stems and Pieces (drained), Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella. To prepare it is very easy.

 

Ready for the oven…

To prepare it you can bake it in the oven or cook it in a skillet on the stove top. I’m baking mine. Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F. Stir together both cans of sauce, Mushrooms, and 1 1/4 cups water in 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Stir in the pasta until well coated. Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes, until pasta is tender. Before you cover it with foil I always lightly spray the underside of the foil with Pam Cooking Spray, that way the Sauce won’t stick to it. When done carefully uncover. Let stand 5 minutes; sauce will thicken. When ready top it with the Grated Parm and Shredded Mozzarella and serve!

 

 

….and done!

Came out hot and delicious. Again nothing fancy, just a good and hearty Dinner. The Pasta and Meatballs are delicious and the added Mushrooms and Mozzarella top it off just right. As always the sauce is so good, I think the Banquet sauces that come in their Dinners is some of the best. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Dole No sugar Added Diced Peaches Cup.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage Pita Bread Pizza

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Glier’s Turkey Goetta and prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. I just love the combination of Turkey Goetta and Hash Browns. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What a beautiful day today! No Rain finally, mostly sunny and 72 degrees. Well Dad will be coming home tomorrow, finally! He’s been in the hospital and rehab center for most of this year so far. I just hope he’s able to stay healthy enough to remain here. It will be good to have him home. After Breakfast I went to Walmart and then on to Kroger to pick some items up for Mom. Back home I repaired one of our outdoor chairs. Then got the cart out for the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage Pita Bread Pizzas.

 

I used Joseph’s Flax/Oat Bran and Stone Ground Whole Wheat Pita Bread for my Pizza Pie instead of regular Dough Pizza Pie. I love using Joseph’s Pita Breads, always fresh and they’re only 60 calories, 1.5 grams fat, and 5 net carbs! But I can only find them online so I have to order them now. A huge saving of calories and carbs over using normal Pizza Crust, without sacrificing taste. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To bake the Pita Pizzas I used a large Cookie Sheet. To prepare them I brushed them with a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the coating of Oil browns it up just right. I then baked it for 5 minutes, just to brown it up a bit. Removed them from the oven and made my Pizzas.

 

For my toppings I used Ragu Homestyle Pizza Sauce, Jennie – O Lean Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Sliced Black and Green Olives, sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms, 2 Anchovies Fillets, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

 

 

 

 

It took less than 10 minutes in the oven until everything heated up and the Cheese melted.Pizza is served! Everything combined makes one delicious Pizza! And the good thing is you can load these Pita Bread Pizzas up with toppings and still not have a lot of calories and carbs, my type of Pizza! Bakes up ans tastes like a Thin-Crust Pizza For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast on this 1st day of April I had a Poached Egg that I served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. They moved Dad from the hospital back over to the Rehab Center he was just at last week. They are going to try more therapy and if that doesn’t work he will have to stay in an assisted living center, hope it doesn’t come to that. So after Breakfast I went to Kroger and picked up a few snacks that Dad likes. Then after Lunch I went on over to see Dad. Back home took it easy and watched a few shows that I had recorded. For my dinner tonight I’m preparing a Mini Flatbread Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza.

 

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s Market the other day I picked up a package of Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread. I had used these once before and really liked the way they came out. It’s pregrilled so it’s ready to eat or reheat. What I liked about it was they were the perfect size to make mini Pizzas with, plus they’re only 140 calories and 24 net carbs for a whole one (one serving)!

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Pizzas I’ll need; the Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, Sliced Black and Green Olives, Ragu Pizza Sauce, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

 

 

 


To prepare it I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. The Johnsonville Turkey Sausage is precooked so all I had to do was heat up in a small skillet for 5 minutes on medium heat. Removed from the heat and sliced the Links up into small bite pieces. I then got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I then took one of the Flatbreads and brushed a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the top of them.

 

 

 

 

Next I made my Pizza! I started by spreading 2 tablespoons of the Ragu Pizza Sauce across the top of the Flatbread. Then added the sliced Olives, Turkey sausage, Mozzarella Cheese, and topped it all with Turkey Pepperoni. Then I made a second one the same way. Laid the Flatbreads on the baking sheet and put it in the oven. I baked them for about 8 minutes, until the Cheese was melted and all items heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

The Flatbread provides a perfect Crust (Pizza Pie). It browned up great and had a fantastic flavor with a nice crunch! I’ll have to try different toppings, like Ham or Chicken, using the Kontos Pre­Grilled Mini Oval Flatbread. I’ve found a good Pizza Pie Crust and it’s only 140 calories per serving! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
