Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

To start my morning off 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. After Breakfast I had to go to the local Kroger up the road for just a couple of items. I stopped by McDonald’s then to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Finished up some house cleaning and then did some work on the computer. I took the back off the processor and cleaned the inside of the computer, a lot of dust. Deleted some old files and ran all the scans. For Dinner tonight Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

 

I had been wanting Tacos for some time, and tonight is the night! When making Turkey Tacos I love using Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

 

 

For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Love the Taco Shells that stand! Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom and Dad. For dessert later a Blue Bunny No Sugar Added Vanilla Mini Cone.

Healthy 4th of July Dinner Recipes

Find healthy, delicious 4th of July dinner recipes including hamburgers, BBQ chicken, fajitas and kabobs. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

 

Barbecue Pulled Chicken
This BBQ pulled chicken recipe is a fanciful reinterpretation of pulled pork that slow-cooks chicken in lots of tangy tomato sauce. Have sliced jalapenos, sliced red onions and some sour cream on hand to top this barbecue pulled chicken, which makes a hearty main course. You can turn it into an unbelievable sandwich or serve it on mashed potatoes or even whole-grain spaghetti. Serve with shredded napa cabbage tossed with low-fat mayonnaise, cider vinegar, celery seed and honey to taste……

 

Crab Cake Burgers
These burgers have a true crab flavor that isn’t masked by fillers or strong seasoning. Serve on a bun with tartar sauce or with a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crabmeat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crabmeat, cut it into small, uniform pieces…….

 

Grilled Fish Tacos
Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed chile rub and grill it instead. Make sure the fillets are no more than ½ to ¾ inch thick so they cook quickly. Sometimes flipping fish on the grill can be tricky since the fish can stick to the grill or fall apart. The solution is to invest in a grill basket that easily holds 4 to 6 fish fillets and secures the fish in the basket for easy flipping. If you don’t have a grilling basket, make sure the grill is hot and well oiled before adding the fish……..

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy along with 2 slices of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I love Gravy!! Also fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and topped it off with that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I also baked up a pan of Pillsbury Biscuits for Mom and Dad to have with the gravy. I love Biscuits but 2 slices of toast has way less carbs and calories than one Biscuit. Not a lot going on today, caught up on everything. I took a ride later over to Home Depot to look at some plants and trees. Not sure what I’m going to do yet for some new shrubbery. It’s our warmest day of the year so far, high near 90 degrees and mostly sunny. For Dinner tonight its Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans for Taco Tuesday!

 

I had been wanting Tacos for some time, and tonight is the night! When making Turkey Tacos I love using Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

 

For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom and Dad. For dessert/Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn.
