Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

Turkey and Black Bean Tacos 005
Beautiful Autumn Day out today! Went to Meijer this morning to pick up some Jennie – O Turkey Products; Ground Breakfast Sausage,Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, Italian Sweet Sausages, and Breakfast Links. While there I watched the most extreme Couponer I have ever seen, she was amazing! She had a good size binder, notebook type, and on front of the binder a printout of each store aisle and the major products in that aisle. Then pockets in the binder that contained coupons for items in that aisle. I talked to her for a bit and said the biggest savings she had been just over $200! She said it took a lot of time but had a nice pay off! Quite impressive. On to Dinner. Tonight one of my favorites, Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

 

 
I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I had this leftover from the other night when I made Stuffed Peppers. I fried it in Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes, and 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. As I added the Taco Seasoning Mix I also added 1 can of Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans, I drained and rinsed them before I added them. Black Beans with Ground Turkey is a perfect pairing for Tacos. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through.

 

 
For my other toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, 1 small diced Tomato, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and all in a Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Love these Tacos! For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak Pita Bread 009

 

Today’s Menu: Cilantro Lime Buffalo Skirt Steak Pita Bread Wrap w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 
Dreary and rainy day today, and turning cooler! A while back I had ordered a 16 oz. Cilantro Lime Skirt Steak from Wild Idea Buffalo and I’ve finally got around to prepare it. For dinner tonight a Cilantro Lime Buffalo Skirt Steak Pita Bread Wrap w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak Pita Bread 002
First time I’ve used the Wild Idea Buffalo Cilantro Lime Skirt Steak. It’s a 16 oz. Skirt Steak and it comes marinated in a Cilantro Lime Marinade that’s made up with Tomatillo, Lime Juice, Cilantro, Garlic, Olive Oil, Salt, Cumin, Cardamon, Cayenne Pepper, and Black Pepper. Which all combines into one fine Marinade. it was sliced thin into several pieces. I pan fried it in Extar Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with a couple of shakes of Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Being cut so thin it fried up really quick, about 2 or 3 minutes per side. It really browned up nice and the flavor was incredible! The Marinade is a perfect one from Wild Idea Buffalo. After it was done I then sliced it into thin strips for the Pita Bread.

 

 

Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak Pita Bread 008
I used Joseph’s Flax Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Pita Bread, my favorite by far with 60 calories and 4 net carbs. To assemble, besides my Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak, I used Shredded Lettuce, fresh grated Monterey Jack Cheese, Sliced Black Olives, and a Freestone Peach and Mango Salsa. The Salsa was a Kroger Brand Private Selection, 20 calories and 4 carbs. Layered everything on the Pita Bread, which I folded into a Wrap. To go with the Wrap I heated a bag of Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Ready Rice. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

“Two thumbs up on the Cilantro Lime Skirt Steaks! I am happy to report you have another winner on your hands,” Kim Eslinger, editor of Mill City Times. A real fiesta of flavors. The cilantro lime skirt steak is perfect for grilling up some buffalo fajitas, or equally delicious on its own. Ole! 1 lb.

Today’s Menu: Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

Bison Cheddar Burger 001
Overcast day out today and not much going on. Updated the computer and ran all the cleanups and installed a new program and that was the extent of my day. For dinner it was a Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 
I used Great Range Ground Bison. I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I pan fried it in Canola Oil, about 4 minutes per side. Came out just like I like them, medium rare with a nice char on the outside with a little pink and juicy in the middle! I made the switch to Buffalo, or Bison, quite a while back and have never missed Beef. I love the taste of Buffalo over Beef and the way it cooks up. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun and topped the Burger with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar. For a side I baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Jenn O Turkey Burger Fries 006

 

Well they were right when they said it would be cooler! Rolled out to get the Morning Paper and the old unofficial Outdoor thermometer said 38 degrees and with the cool breeze that was blowing it felt a bit cooler than that. But I love this weather! It was a beautiful Autumn Day out, sunny and cool. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cheddar Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

While at Mejier last week I had picked up some Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties (Lean). I had one for dinner last week and it was so good I decided to have it again for dinner tonight. Easy to prepare and only 180 calories and 9 g fat and already made into patties. Pan fried it in Canola Oil about 17 minutes, flipping three times. While the pattie was frying, in another skillet I fried up some Jennie -O Turkey Bacon, another low calorie and lean Jennie – O Turkey Product. The bacon is only 30 calories, 0 carbs and .05 g fat. I served the burger on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar and a slice of Turkey Bacon. Love these Burgers!

 

 

For a side with my burger I baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Diced New Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

Haddock Carrots Potatoes 005

Lets talk about Grapes, White Seedless Grapes! Beyond any shadow of a doubt this year’s supply of the White Seedless Grapes has been the best I’ve ever tasted, along with being the biggest and juiciest . All year the Grapes we’ve been buying at local stores has just been incredible. Really going to miss them when they run out this crop of them. For dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Diced New Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I prepared some more of the excellent Haddock I’ve been buying from our local Kroger Seafood Department. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Then sliced the fillet into four pieces. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. I pan fried them in Canola Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Delicious! Haddock and Zatarain’s is a good combo!

 

 

For side dishes, as it is a lot of times, it was all Del Monte. I heated up a small can of Sliced Carrots and also some Del Monte Diced New Potatoes. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert tonight a Mini Banana along with a couple of slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

Today’s Menu: Black Bean and Turkey Flatbread Wraps

 

 

Pita Bread Tacos 006

It’s been one rough 24 hour period for me as the Phantom Pains kicked in last night around 8:00 and have continued through out today. I had a bout with these earlier in the week, so it’s unusual for them to start again so close together. Just hoping they ease up before I go to bed, if not it makes for one long and uneasy night! On to dinner, I had Tacos the other night with a lot of the ingredients leftover. So tonight I gathered up all the leftovers and prepared Black Bean and Turkey Flatbread Wraps.

 

 

I used the remainder Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I had this leftover from the other night. I fried it in Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes, and 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. As I added the Taco Seasoning Mix I also added a 1/2 can of the Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans that were leftover, I drained and rinsed them before I added them. As usual Black Beans with Ground Turkey make the perfect pairing. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through.

 

 

For my other toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and a teaspoon of Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream to top everything off. Served everything on a Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread. This my favorite Pita Bread, this stuff is great! It stays fresh, you can freeze it, and it’s only 50 calories and 4 net carbs for one kind and only 60 calories and 4 net carbs for a bit bigger size. After adding all my toppings I just folded them half, like a soft taco. Really enjoyed these! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Cut Green Beans and Whole Grain Bread

 

chicken-n-noodles-002
Another very cool morning and beautiful Fall Day out again. Stopped by Jungle Jim’s Market with my parents, picked up some produce and Ocean Perch. Love that store, there’s always something going on in the store and today they cooking breakfast dishes with Ostrich Eggs! Amazing how huge those Eggs are, big enough to feed 5 people on 1 Egg (if not more). For dinner tonight I prepared Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Cut Green Beans and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

I used Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’. Another of my favorite Comfort Foods! It comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Fixings, I added the Chicken. I cut up 2 Chicken Breasts seasoning them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Ground Smoked Cumin, and Parsley. I then fried them in a large skillet until done, removed and sliced into small pieces. Then added the Chicken back to the pan along with the can of Noodles and Fixins’. Cooked until it the Sauce was bubbling and heated throughout. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. I left the info and web site link to Margaret Holmes at the end of the post.

Today’s Menu: Progresso Kitchen Favorites Classic Lasagna w/ Whole Grain Bread

 

 

Progresso Las 2

 

We got some much needed rain all last night into the early morning. The most rain we’ve had in a while, it was getting kind of dry around here. As the rain moved it out it took all the humidity with it. The day was a beautiful sunny and fall like day. Tomorrow they said it would struggle to reach 70 degrees, smells like Fall! For dinner tonight, Progresso Kitchen Favorites Classic Lasagna w/ Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

 

This is my favorite Lasagna recipe, the Progresso Kitchen Favorites Classic Lasagna! It’s very easy to make as the dinner kit contains the Lasagna Pasta, Tomato Herb sauce, Ricotta Sauce Mix, and Grated Parmesan Cheese. I added 1 lb. Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 1 Cup water, Sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms, 2/3 Cup 2% Milk, 1 (8 oz.), Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (2 Cups), 1/2 cup Shredded Dutch Gouda, and I also added a bit more seasoning (McCormick Grinder Italian Herb). I combined the Mozzarella and Goda Cheese. Gouda is such a great tasting Cheese and is a perfect melting Cheese. Basically you just layer your ingredients in a 8″ square baking dish and cover and bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes and bake an additional 10 minutes uncovered. The product description along with full instructions are at the bottom of the post.

 

 

 

Prepared by the instructions it was 390 calories but I cut that and the carb count down by using Jennie O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast instead of Beef and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese. The Lasagna comes out delicious every time! Everyone really loves this. The flavor as always is excellent. The Sauce was thick and well seasoned and the same for the pasta, perfect, plus plenty leftovers to freeze for later. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a new one, Jello Chocolate Mousse. Easy to prepare, very tasty, and 160 calories per serving. I served it topped with Coll Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries

 

 

Tilapia Sand Fries 008

It was cleaning day, computer cleaning day. Amazing how much dust can gather in and around a computer. Took the panel off and cleaned inside it, then cleaned the outside of it. Cleaned the computer desk, which is always a dumping site for everything! Then did some back up of files, deleted a lot of things and ran a day long computer scan. All is okay and back up running! For dinner I had laid some frozen Tilapia Fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then for dinner it was Seasoned Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries.

 

 

Still using the bag of Tilapia I had purchased from Walmart. Good thing to have in the freezer, their easily thawed, easy to prepare , and delicious! I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked FriesSharp Cheddar Buffalo Burger Fries 004

 

 

 

The last couple of days I’ve been a little nervous as I found a small knot, or lump, on my right arm in the armpit. And with my history of Melanoma it’s always a bit unnerving when something like this pops up. So my Oncologist got me right in this afternoon to check everything out. The news was good! The knot I was feeling is a result of the Cancer Clinical Trial I took a few years back. The knot was near where and injection site was when I received treatment for the trial. As they say better safe than sorry.

 

 

For dinner I prepared a Sharp Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries. I used the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/4 Lb. Buffalo Burger, my favorite which Wil;d Idea Buffalo was featured on the Food Network last night! The Burgers come frozen in a package 4 and pre-made. So just thaw and fry it! I seasoned it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. i served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped the Burger with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar.

 

 

To go with my Buffalo Burger I baked some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. I had a side of Hidden Valley Smoked Bacon Ranch Spread/Dip for my Fries. I really like these new dips that Hidden Vally has out. Then for dessert later a Del Monte Diced Mano in Light Syrup.
