I was up around 6:00 this morning and went out to get the paper and what a beautiful morning! I sat outside for a while, enjoying the peace and quiet of the early morning and read part of the morning paper. I don’t know if it’s a sign of an early Fall approaching or not but there sure are signs of it. As I sat outside I watched 3 different flocks of Geese in their V – Formation flying South, and I’ve been seeing a lot them here the past few days. For dinner I prepared the Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinner Chili Cheese Mac, using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey and added 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. This is has become one of my favorite comfort foods. 1 pan so easy clean up, has, cheese, pasta, and for a meat it has ground turkey, and you can add a can of kidney beans to make it that much heartier!

 

 

The Chessy Skillet Dinners kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans, 2 cups of water, the seasoning and the pasta. Simmered for 10 – 12 minutes and added the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above.Another one pan quick, easy, and delicious dinner! I also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Well it warmed up a bit today after yesterday’s snow. Starting to melt already as it’s around 40 degrees today. Went to Jungle Jim’s Market this morning, which is always an experience in grocery shopping! You could spend hours in the Deli and Produce departments alone. Stocked up on Produce and some Seafood items. For dinner I prepared a new one from the Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinners, Chili Cheese Mac.

 

 

 

I’ve tried the Ultimate Cheeseburger numerous times so I thought I would give the Chili Cheese Mac a try. The dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey.

Want an easy, filling, comfort dinner tonight, I have one for you and it’s one those pot meals! Easy to make and easy to clean up. It’s the Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac, But mine is Turkey Mac. Using Ground turkey its a little healthier and less calories and carbs. So for dinner tonight I prepared Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Turkey and Cheese Mac with Harvest Grain Bread.

 

 

I used Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac. The dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 2 cups of water, the seasoning and pasta. Simmer for 11 – 13 minutes and add the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 350 calories and 27 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above. I also warmed up a small loaf of Kroger Bakery Harvest Grain Bread and topped the slices with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. This makes one hearty and tasty meal! They have different varieties of the Velveeta Skillets, I’ve tried 3 different ones and they are all delicious! For a dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time pop Corn.

Placed the fillets in 11×7 in. baking pan and sprinkled the combined ingredients over the fish. Baked for 25 minutes, until the fish was fork flakey. I like this recipe! The Haddock comes out moist and well seasoned. Haddock is good any way you prepare it, it always taste fresh.

 

Then for sides I prepared a single serving of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I also microwaved a single serving of Velveeta/Kraft Shells & Cheese (made with 2% milk). For Bread I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Later tonight for dessert a 4 Slice Package of Dole Banana Dippers (Covered in Dark Chocolate).

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Velveeta Shells and Cheese
It was Catfish Nuggets for dinner tonight. I used 2 pie pans to prepare the nuggets filling one with EggBeater’s seasoned with Paprika and in the other Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Catfish with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and then dipped each one in the Egg Beater’s, making sure each was well coated. Shaking off the excess Egg Beater I then rolled them in the Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I fried them in Canola Oil on medium heat about 4 – 5 minutes, turning once. They came up golden brown and delicious! Catfish fries up so good. Baking Fish is a lot healthier but Catfish is a Fish that tastes better fried. i als made a Remoulade Sauce. Made with Reduced Fat Mayo, Chili Sauce, and Horseradish Sauce along with some spices. I left the full recipe at the end of the post.
For sides I had Simply Potatoes Hash Browns and I also prepared an individual serving of Velveeta 2% Shells and Cheese. Easy to prepare, microwave 3 1/2 minutes, and just as good as fixing it from a box. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Frozen Ice cream Truffle Bar.

 

Remoulade Sauce

Ingredients

1 Cup Light Mayonnaise
2 tbsp Chili Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Salt
tsp Curry Powder, or to taste
1 Tbsp Hot Prepared Horseradish
1 tsp Dry Mustard

*Add all ingredients to jar or container
*Mix until well blended
*Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours before serving.

Red Snapper Fish Sandwich w/ Tofu Mac & Cheese

Today’s Menu: Red Snapper Fish Sandwich w/ Tofu Mac & Cheese

 
A comfort food classic, with a bit of a spin, for dinner tonight. It’s a Fish sandwich with Mac and Cheese! I love Mac & Cheese but I don’t like the calories and carbs that usually come with it. So to cut back on the calories and carbs I replaced the Pasta Macaroni with Tofu Shiratki (Yam Noodle with Tofu) Macaroni Shape Noodles.

 

I used a Red Snapper Fillet for my Fish. After rinsing the fillet off with water I patted the fillet dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned it with Sea Salt, Black Pepper, and Garlic Salt. Then rolled it in Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. Came out with a beautiful golden brown crust and moist and delicious! Served it on an Aunt Millie’s Deli Style Whole Wheat Mini Sub Bun and topped with a slice of Borden Smoked Cheddar.

 

Now for the Mac & Cheese, this is where it gets good! I used TOFU SHIRATAKI (Yam Noodle with Tofu) MACARONI SHAPE which is only 20 calories and 3 carbs! I added a half a serving of Velveeta 2% Cheese, and a Tablespoon Kraft Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Mix it all together and microwave on high for 1 minute and 40 seconds. After the first minute stop it to stir and continue with 40 seconds, the time can vary according to your microwave. I’m starting to use Tofu more and more as a noodle substitute. Huge difference in calories and carbs between the two. A thank you to Hungry Girl for the idea. I left the recipe and the link to the Housefoods Tofu at the end of the post. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Bob Evan’s Glazed Apples.

 

 

Cheesy Tofu Shirataki Mac

Ingredients:
1 Bag House Foods Tofu Shirataki Macaroni Shaped Noodle Substitute
1/2 Serving Velveeta 2% Cheese
1 Tablespoon Kraft Shredded Parmesan
Sea Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
Sprinkle of Oscar Mayer Real Turkey Bacon Bits (Optional)

Directions:
Use a strainer to rinse and drain noodles well. Pat dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave noodles for 1 minute.

*Drain excess liquid. Dry thoroughly with paper towels.

*Add Noodles back to bowl and add Velveeta and Cheese slice to Noodles breaking both into pieces as you add them. Microwave for 1 minute. Stop and stir, mixing well, and continue to microwave for an additional 40 seconds. Optional, sprinkle extra Shredded Parm Cheese and Turkey Bacon Bits on top before serving.

MAKES 1 SERVING

 
House Tofu Shirataki – TOFU SHIRATAKI (Yam Noodle with Tofu) MACARONI SHAPE 8oz.

 

Tofu Shirataki is a great pasta alternative made from blending the root of the Konnyaku – a member of the yam family and tofu.
It is a healthy, uniquely textured noodle – that pleases people of all ages!
