Today’s Menu: Leftover Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made French Toast and Turkey Sausage. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Cinnamon, and Ground Nutmeg. For toppings I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. For my Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 49 degrees outside today. Cleaned out the fridge, cleaned the stove and oven, and cleaned the microwave today. Later got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas and then raked the front yard. For dinner tonight I reheat Leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Ileft the original post from the other day for description and instructions below. Enjoy!

 

I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the freezer. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. If I was making my Chili I use a Crock Pot and let it simmer all day! To make it I use; 2 – 1 lb. packages of Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breast, many Spices, 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. With toppings of Sargento Off the Block Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Oyster Crackers. I just added the Chili to a sauce pan and heated it on low, stirring often until heated through. Set aside as my Pasta was cooking. For the full recipe and cooking instructions of the 3 Bean Turkey Chili just click the link. (https://beatcancer2010.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/3-bean-turkey-chili-12/) I emptied the container into a small sauce pan and heated it on medium low, stirring often until heated through.

 

For my Elbow Pasta I used DereamFields Elbows. It’s tough finding Whole Grain Pastas, at least around here where I live. Used to be I could find it at most any Grocery Store. The DreamFields is all I could find at Meijer yesterday. It’s 190 calories and 36 net carbs per serving, cooks up great, and good taste. Filled a large pot up 1/2 way with water and added salt. Heated the water on high until boiling and addded the Pasta. Cooked it for 7 minutes.

 

 

 

 

When done removed it from the pot and drained. Add it back to the pot and add the heated 3 Bean Turkey Chili and mix with a large spoon, heat on low and mix well. And it’s ready to serve! You can top it with Cheese, Hot Sauce, Sour Cream, or Diced Onions. I just always use the Cheese and Hot Sauce for my toppings. To serve just grab a bowl and scoop out the amount that you want. Add your toppings, if any, and enjoy! The 3 Bean Turkey Chili works perfect with Elbow Pasta. Such a good Comfort Food Dish!

 

 

 

To go with the Chili Mac I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

No Tea or food this morning. I had to fast overnight and until after my doctor’s appointment at 8:00 this morning. I went to my Family Doctor for blood and sugar tests. Hopefully all is good, waiting on the results to come in next week. 39 degrees and sunny out today. After the Doctor I took Mom to Kroger, she needed a few things and then stopped and picked up Breakfast for her at McDonald’s. Back home I had to make Lunch, I was starved! Afterward I took the car up and had it washed, it was covered with salt. Later got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For dinner tonight I prepared 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a 2 Egg Scrambled Eggs that I topped with some Ortega Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce and some Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain in the morning and then turning partly cloudy and 85 degrees out. Got the cart out of shed and started some repair work on the shed. I’m replacing the bottom trim around the back and the 2 sides of the shed. Looks like at least a 2 day job. One of those jobs that takes longer when in a mobility cart. For dinner tonight I prepared 3 Bean Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Corn Bread.

 

 

 

 

I came across a recipe for Chili Mac the other day and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So I made some my way! I had prepared some quite a while back using Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans. This time around I had a container of my 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ll also be making a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread! Can’t wait for Dinner!

Leftovers: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Oyster Crackers

Today’s Menu: Leftovers: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Oyster Crackers

 

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 004
Had our first light snow this morning. Nothing major, just a dusting on the roofs and wooden decks. But they are calling for anywhere from 2-3 inches tonight and early in the morning, possibly more in some areas. It is that time of year! For dinner tonight I prepared Leftover: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Oyster Crackers.

 

 

 
Made some Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese the other day and had the leftovers out in our outdoor shed. The shed acts as our extra freezer in the Winter Months, and does come in handy especially with the leftover Holiday Dinners. I brought in the leftovers to thaw and just reheated them in a medium sauce when it was time to eat. I’ve left the original post below with the full recipe and directions below.

 

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 001
I used 2 Cans of Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, Barilla Whole Grain Elbow Pasta (4 servings), Dried Cilantro, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and fresh grated Dutch Gouda Cheese. For some reason, not sure why, it’s getting harder to find Whole Grain Pasta Products around this area. You can find Spaghetti, most of the time, but all other varieties are hard to find anymore.

 

 

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 010
I prepared the Elbow Pasta in a large sauce pan, according to the package directions. When the Pasta was done I drained the water and put the Pasta in a small Dutch Oven. I then added the Turkey Chili to the Pasta and mixed well. Added a 1/2 cup of the Sargento Cheese and Cilantro, mixed and put the lid on the Dutch Oven. Heated it on medium low until I was ready to serve it. Another tasty comfort food dish! The Pasta came out just right and as always the Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans was delicious. Served it in a bowl and topped it with a sprinkle of The Sargento Cheese and the fresh grated Dutch Gouda. Love using Dutch Gouda, it melts good and gives a dish a creamy taste. I also had a side of Skyline Oyster Crackers. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Barilla Whole Grain ElbowsBarilla Whole Grain Elbow Pasta

Try Barilla’s Whole Grain Elbow pasta. Made with 51% whole wheat, Barilla Whole Grain had 3 times the fiber of regular pasta while still tasting great!
Elbows is named for its twisted tubular shape that can vary in size, and be either smooth or ridged. Pasta elbows originated from Northern and Central Italy, where they are traditionally used in soups. The Barilla version is ridged with an extra twist, giving it a more sophisticated shape that also helps to hold the sauce. With Barilla twisted Elbows, you can take this fun shape beyond the expected in any number of traditional Italian meals, in soups, baked pasta dishes, or tossed with vegetable or cheese sauces.

1. Bring 4-6 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add salt to taste, if desired.
2. Add contents of package to boiling water. Stir gently.
3. Return to a boil. For authentic “al dente” pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for 7 minutes. For more tender pasta, boil an additional minute.
4. Remove from heat. Drain well and serve as desired.

Whole grain pasta is best paired with tomato or cream sauces. Pesto sauces also go well with whole grain pasta. Meat and game sauces pair well too. Green vegetables in general taste very good with whole grain pasta. Pine nuts, walnuts, chestnuts, pistachios, and dried fruit such as raisins and apples pair very well with this whole grain pasta. Cheese sauces made with Parmigiano, Grana, Asiago, Pecorino, Ricotta, Provolone, or Fontina cheese work well with whole grain pasta in terms of flavor profiles.
