Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

I’ve decided to add something new to the blog – drumroll please…..

You know that I love to cook and in some circles am considered a Crock Pot Queen (sike), no really I just like sharing food finds on Instagram so decided to bring it to my blog.

Today’s 1st Friday Foodie Feature is

Mama Mae’s Lean Mean Collard Greens

On Sundays when I was growing up my grandmother would always cook a big pot of fresh collardskale, or mustard greens, a tradition that I have continued with my own family.  Collards were always the chosen green but I have since discovered kale which is healthier has a sweeter taste and is good when used in a breakfast smoothie.  The tradition of having vegetables with dinner also hasn’t changed but when I don’t feel like cooking fresh I’ll use canned or frozen.

I like trying new products especially if they are within my budget which was the case with the Mama Mae’s items at Shoprite.  The good thing about Mama Mae’s Lean Mean Collard Greens is that they can be cooked in the microwave, on top of the stove or in the oven but the best thing about Mama Mae’s greens are the ingredients.

  • collards
  • water
  • onions
  • garlic
  • sugar
  • dried turkey stock
  • roasted turkey juices/fat
  • yeast extract
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • liquid smoke

They tasted homemade because they basically use the same ingredients as I and contain no hard-to-pronounce artificial flavors or seasoning.  The box states there are approximately 2 1/2 servings per package which was accurate, they are also low in fat and 50 calories per serving.

Mama Mae’s products are manufactured locally in Englewood Cliffs, NJ and if you like greens, I highly recommend trying them.  I look forward to trying some of the other Mama Mae’s items.

God blessed us with another gorgeous summer weekend and today I am plowing through Monday like a turtle on steroids!   This morning I had to add extra spinach and kale to my green smoothie because I over did it with the sodium and suds.   Yesterday afternoon good friends of ours stopped by the house after leaving Maryland en-route home to New York.   Anytime someone visits us from Maryland I always have just one request – BRING SOME CRABS!!!!   In our house summer isn’t complete without sitting at the table covered in newspaper with a bowl of melted butter and hot sauce cracking open steamed crabs covered in Old Bay Seasoning.   Of course I must wash it down with a cold beer!   Add some boiled corn (which I forgot), potato salad and shrimp and everything is right with the world.

 

 

This outfit was laid out last week, and it’s perfect for today because it’s covering the results of too much sodium and suds but oh it was so well worth it!

I love smoothies and this week I decided to have one each day as a breakfast meal substitute.  I don’t use measurements, I just put in a few handfuls of greens, fruits, enough liquid for smooth blending and a dash or two of agave.

Monday – Blueberries, Vanilla Rice Milk, Kale, Agave

Tuesday – Banana, Vanilla Rice Milk, Spinach, Agave

Wednesday – Spinach, Kale, BlueBerries, Vanilla Rice Milk, Agave

Thursday – Spinach, BlueBerries, Banana, Vanilla Rice Milk, Truvia, Instant Coffee

Friday – Banana, Spinach, NonFat Vanilla Yogurt, Fresh Mint Leaves, Agave

On Friday, my son and I went to Save A Lot, a grocery store that I pass everyday on the way home but have never stopped. They had some good bargains especially in the produce department. Tayair thought it was weird that we had to pay a quarter to get a shopping cart, but understood the concept when we returned the cart and got the quarter back. This is not a fancy store nor is it “ghetto” as some people posted on Foursquare but the price is right for certain items as shown below:

These turkey links were awesome on the grill!

Bouillon cubes – 2/$1.00

Ground turkey – $2.99

Bar-B-Que Sauce – $.77 cents

My FAVORITE veggie!

Bagging your own groceries is another way the store saves you money.

I will definitely be back!
