Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Sunday dinner

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The weather was absolutely gorgeous and not having to cook gave me more time to be outside and enjoy it.  Saturday I was set up at Dutch Country Farmer’s Market, and although there was a lot of foot traffic I didn’t do as well as expected.  I did manage to sell a lot of books, some household items and a few pieces of jewelry, but the clothing that did not sell was donated to Goodwill.  Hubby and the boys chose Chinese Takeout for dinner so it was Shrimp Fried Rice, Steamed Vegetables and Chicken Mei Fun.

Today we all worked outdoors, hubby and the sons on the lawn and cars, me with setting out the patio furniture and cushions before doing the weekly grocery shopping.  I knew I wasn’t going to cook a Sunday dinner so instead we went to Farmer’s Famous Fish for sandwiches and fries.

It was another busy weekend for them with customers lining up and waiting from the time they opened to several hours after the published closing time of 3:30 p.m.

My outfit of the day was a maxi dress and cardigan which was perfect for today’s weather.

Have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!

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.
