A cloudy and dreary day out today, a bit warmer but damp. It looks like it’s going to be a stormy Trick or Treat Night tomorrow also they say. Growing up in the neighborhood, in Hamilton, we always looked forward to Halloween Night and all the Candy! Back then we would fill up 2 huge Trick or Treat Bags easily during the course of the night, as all the houses were close together so it was easy to canvas a couple of neighborhoods. For dinner tonight, Lemon – Pepper Fried Haddock w/ Baked Bay Scallops and Mac and Cheese.
It was Seafood tonight with some Mac and Cheese thrown in. I had bought a Haddock Fillet at Kroger the day before along with the Bay Scallops. I still buy Seafood from Kroger it’s one item that’s reasonably priced, and very good quality. To prepare the Haddock I started by rinsing the Fillet off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I then sliced the Fillet into smaller pieces. To season I added a couple of shakes of Sea Salt and then rolled the Fillets in Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. I pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. I could live on Fish and Seafood!
Then for my Bay Scallops. Rinsed them off and patted them dry and then I combined the following; ½ cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 1 Tsp. Onion Powder, 1 Tsp. Garlic Powder, ½ Tsp. Paprika, 1/2 Tsp. Parsley (dried), ¼ Tsp. Cayenne Pepper, ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated, and Dash Sea Salt. Then I melted 2 Tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. Preheated the oven to 400 degrees F and poured the melted butter into a 2-quart casserole dish. Make sure the scallops and butter are evenly placed in the bottom of the dish. Mix all the remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over the scallops. Bake until the scallops are firm, which will take about 20 minutes, careful not overcook the Scallops. These are nothing but delicious! The seasoning along with the Bread Crumbs gives them excellent flavor and a nice brown crust. I also heated up some Bob Evan’s Macaroni and Cheese. Just microwave and their ready. A mini Seafood Fest tonight for dinner! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.
Baked Bay Scallops:
2 Tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter, melted
1 ½ pounds Bay Scallops, rinsed and drained
½ cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs
1 Tsp. Onion Powder
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
½ Tsp. Paprika
1/2 Tsp. Parsley, dried
¼ Tsp. Cayenne Pepper
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
Dash Sea Salt
Total prep and cook time: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C. Pour the melted butter into a 2-quart casserole dish. Make sure the scallops and butter are evenly placed in the bottom of the dish. Mix all the remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over the scallops. Bake until the scallops are firm, which will take about 20 minutes.

Today’s Menu: Cilantro Lime Buffalo Skirt Steak Pita Bread Wrap w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice
Dreary and rainy day today, and turning cooler! A while back I had ordered a 16 oz. Cilantro Lime Skirt Steak from Wild Idea Buffalo and I’ve finally got around to prepare it. For dinner tonight a Cilantro Lime Buffalo Skirt Steak Pita Bread Wrap w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.
First time I’ve used the Wild Idea Buffalo Cilantro Lime Skirt Steak. It’s a 16 oz. Skirt Steak and it comes marinated in a Cilantro Lime Marinade that’s made up with Tomatillo, Lime Juice, Cilantro, Garlic, Olive Oil, Salt, Cumin, Cardamon, Cayenne Pepper, and Black Pepper. Which all combines into one fine Marinade. it was sliced thin into several pieces. I pan fried it in Extar Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with a couple of shakes of Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Being cut so thin it fried up really quick, about 2 or 3 minutes per side. It really browned up nice and the flavor was incredible! The Marinade is a perfect one from Wild Idea Buffalo. After it was done I then sliced it into thin strips for the Pita Bread.
I used Joseph’s Flax Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Pita Bread, my favorite by far with 60 calories and 4 net carbs. To assemble, besides my Cilantro and Lime Skirt Steak, I used Shredded Lettuce, fresh grated Monterey Jack Cheese, Sliced Black Olives, and a Freestone Peach and Mango Salsa. The Salsa was a Kroger Brand Private Selection, 20 calories and 4 carbs. Layered everything on the Pita Bread, which I folded into a Wrap. To go with the Wrap I heated a bag of Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Ready Rice. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Blackened Mahi Mahi w/ Brown Rice, Steam Crisp Corn, and Whole Grain Bread.
Another really nice day out. Ran some errands and then did some fishing for most of the afternoon. I went to our community lake, caught a few Blue Gill, three small Bass, and a Catfish. I did see one guy reel in about a 3 lb. Bass though. None I caught were very big, I released them all but had one peaceful relaxing afternoon. One man had his son and daughter with him and they were fishing for the first time. They were all using one rod so I went back home and got an old rod reel and small tackle box that I no longer use and took it back and gave it to the kids. You would have thought I gave them a car! The man was very thankful. It was all worth while watching when the kids each caught their first fish! Speaking of fish that’s what I had for dinner. I prepared a Grilled Blackened Mahi Mahi w/ Brown Rice, Steam Crisp Corn, and Whole Grain Bread.
I had bought a wire fish grill basket a while back, which I love using, but it’s for three fillets and if you’re not grilling three fillets it’s sort of bulky to use. So while at Kroger the other day I seen they had single fish fillet grill baskets so I purchased one and put it to use for dinner tonight. To prepare the Mahi Mahi I’ll need a tablespoon or so of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter and Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. Preheated the grill up on high I rinsed the Grouper off and patted dry. Melted the 1 T butter in a microwave about 15 seconds and brushed both sides of the Mahi Mahi with the melted butter. I then coated both sides with a generous amount of the rub. Then I got the Fish Basket out and sprayed it with Pam Spray and I had 4 slices of a Lime and I laid those down in the basket. Loaded the Fish, skin side down on the Lime slices, in the grill basket. The Citrus keeps the skin side of Fish from sticking to the grill grate and the grate of the Fish Basket and gives your Fish more flavor at the same time. Placed my Mahi Mahi on the preheated grill and closed the lid. Grilled for only 3 minutes and then flipped it and grilled another 3 minutes. Use a watch and keep a very close eye on it, do not over cook! The result some beautifully delicious Blackened Mahi Mahi! That’s the first time I’ve had the Mahi Mahi Blackened and really like it!
For side dishes I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Brown Rice. I used the single serve micro wave Rice, just heat for 45 seconds and it’s done! I also heated up a can of Green Giant Steam Crisp Sweet Yellow and White Corn. Been on a Corn kick here lately, still love those Green Beans but Corns a close second now. I also had a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning
This spicy seasoning blend is rubbed on the outside of fish (or chicken, steak or other meats) for blackening. Also great as a seasoning rub for the grill or broiler.

Rainy day out all day. Couldn’t get outside to do much today so I banged around the kitchen looking for something I haven’t tried before for dinner tonight. I had been wanting to try Quinoa for a while so today was the perfect day to try it. Scanned the internet looking for Quinoa recipes a came across a few that sounded good, I went with the Quinoa and Black Beans. So for dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Buffalo Terres Major Filet w/ Quinoa and Black Beans and Diced Potatoes.
The Terres Major Filet is a Buffalo Steak I first tried a couple of weeks ago. I heard that it was tender but that doesn’t begin to describe how tender and delicious this cut of Buffalo is! As usual it’s from Wild Idea Buffalo, which I’m going to have to place another order with soon. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and I then fired up the grill and grilled it. It’s a very lean cut as are most cuts of Buffalo so you have to keep a close eye on it so not to over cook it. I grilled it about 3 1/2 minutes per side and then let it sit for 5 minutes before slicing it. It came out a perfect juicy medium rare with that delicious sweet flavor.
To go with my Steak I prepared Quinoa and Black Beans, for the first time. Besides the Quinoa (3/4 cup) I’ll need 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped, 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth, 1 teaspoon roasted ground cumin, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1 cup corn kernels, 1 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained, and 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro. Nothing but good and healthy things in this recipe! Easy to prepare I just heated the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stirred in the garlic, and sautéed until lightly browned. Mixed the quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in the corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro and continue to stir until all ingredients are heated through. One delicious and healthy dish! The Quinoa had sort of nutty taste to it and combined with all the other ingredients made a very filling and hearty dish. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Diced New Potatoes. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Sirloin and Buffalo Shrimp w/ Baked Potato
Heavy, heavy rains since early last night, they even have posted a flood alert for the area. This weather is amazing through the Ohio Valley here! Cold and snowy to 60 degrees and sunny to rain and flooding in a matter of days. I wasn’t real sure on what to have for dinner so I dug into the freezer and found a Great Range Buffalo Sirloin Steak. So I had that and some unprepared Shrimp I had leftover from the other nights dinner to go with the Buffalo Sirloin.
So for my dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Sirloin along with Buffalo Shrimp and a Baked Potato. To prepare the Buffalo Sirloin I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Steakhouse Seasoning. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 4 minutes per side, to medium rare.
To prepare the Shrimp In a resealable plastic bag, I combined flour, Creole-style seasoning, garlic powder, ground cayenne pepper, onion powder, and ground black pepper. Seal the bag and shake a few times to combine the ingredients well. Rinse the Shrimp under cold water and place them in the plastic bag with the flour mixture. Seal the bag and shake to coat all of the shrimp well with the flour mixture. Then just fry the Shrimp on medium heat about 2 minutes per side. When done I put them in a large bowl that I had added Kroger Medium Wing Sauce to and shook until well covered with the Sauce. I love Shrimp any and all ways you can fix them! Love the heat on these. Served them with a side of Litehouse Bleu Cheese Dressing to dip them in. I also had a Baked Potato that I topped with Sea Salt and Ground Pepper along with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

An extra tasty dinner tonight, Baked and Glazed Pork Chop in Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce w/ Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas. I was at Jungle Jim’s Market last week and came across the JB’s Fatboy Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce. First time I’ve ever seen this Sauce from JB’s Fat Boy and it looked too good to pass up. Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce, it just sounds like it was meant for Pork!
First I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I then rolled my Chops in flour that was seasoned with Sea Salt and Black Pepper. I placed the Chops in a small broiler pan with a wire rack and baked until the temperature of the Chops reached 165 degrees. I turned the Chops over after 15 minutes of baking and with a small basting brush basted on the Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce. Continued baking until done. The Chops came out moist and full of great flavor. The Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce is a perfect Glaze or Dipping Sauce for Pork! Love this Sauce like the rest of the JB’s Fat Boy sauces. The Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce is a great combo, you can taste the Mustard and the Apple Cider and then there’s a sneaky hint of heat to it. Great Sauce! I think it would go well for Chicken also, I’ll find out soon.
For sides to go with my pork Chops i prepared Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. First time making the Cayenne and White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes. The recipe came from the Simply Potatoes web site but I’m not really a fan of their Mashed Potatoes, love their other Potato products, so I used Bob Evans “Down on the Farm” Mashed Potatoes. I microwaved the Mashed Potatoes for a total of 5 minutes and when done added a 1/ teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper and 1/2 cup of freshly shredded Murray’s Light White Cheddar. Stirred until well mixed and served. I love Potatoes and this Potato recipe is fantastic!! The Cayenne and white Cheddar really lights the Mashed Potatoes up! You have to give this one a try. I left the original recipe and web link at the end of the post. I also had Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas and Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later some Breyers Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Hot Fudge Topping.
JB’s Fat Boy uses the finest quality, all natural ingredients to create products that will enhance the taste of each prepared meat product, so that each meal will be a pleasured, memorable experience.
Give the crowd something to buzz about when you add Apple Cider Honey Mustard Sauce to all your meat products. Serve directly as a condiment or coat on grilled meats during the last few minutes of cooking time. Also works great as a ‘Dip’ for any meat or chicken strips. 12 oz.
