Today’s Menu: Fried Haddock w/ Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

It was a very sad day today as my Aunt was taken to the local Hospice Center 2 days ago and I went today to visit her. Her health is rapidly failing and it’s just so sad to see her like that. She was like a second Mother to me. If she can’t recover I just pray she goes peacefully.

My parents were going to spend the day with my Aunt so I was cooking for 1 tonight. So tonight I prepared Fried Haddock w/ Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread. I had the Haddock frozen from a while back. I had purchased several fillets at Kroger while they were on sale. I love Haddock you can prepare it so many different ways and it comes out delicious any way you choose to prepare it. I seasoned my fillets with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I rolled the fillets in Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs and pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. It came out golden brown, moist and delicious!

For side dishes I had Velveeta Whole grain Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Asparagus, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Rotini & Cheese is higher in calories and carbs than I normally like but it’s been a while since I’ve had any and the Haddock, Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread are all lower in calories and carbs so I can work the Rotini in without it raising either too bad. I left the product description at the end of the post. As I said I also has Steamed Asparagus. I’ve been buying this from Kroger for a while now. It’s the best packaged Asparagus that I’ve had. It comes in it’s own steamable bag so you just puncture the bag in 3 places and microwave it for 2 minutes. I also had 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Chipotle London Broil Wrap

I used the leftover London Broil from the other day and I had the begining of some fantastic Wraps! I sliced the remaining London Broil into thin slices and wrapped them in paper towels and warmed them up in the microwave. For the Wrap I used Flatout Light Italian Flat bread. Love these they are 100% Whole Wheat , High Fiber, and only 90 calories and 16 carbs, I left the info and web link at the end of the post. I topped the Steak with JB’s Fat Boy Chipotle Sauce, sliced Deli Jalapenos, sliced Black Olives, Lettuce, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, fresh Grated Havarti Cheese and fresh grated Smoked Dutch Gouda. After assembling the wrap and folding it I put it in the microwave for 35 seconds. The lean and delicious Steak along with heat of the Jalapenos, Chipotle Sauce, and the fresh and creaminess of the Smoked Gouda Cheese and Havarti Cheese just makes an unbelievable Wrap! For dessert later a Mango-Cheesecake Parfait that I had made yesterday. You can find the recipe for this on an earlier post from today.

Lunch: Chicken Wrap

Had a healthy and delicious lunch this afternoon. I had a Chicken Breast leftover from the other night so I warmed it up for my wrap. I then sliced it into thin pieces and placed them in the wrap. The wrap I used was a new one and one I’ll be using quite often from now on, the Flatout Light Flatbread. It’s 100% Whole Wheat and it’s only 90 calories and 16 carbs! These would make a great Thin Crust Pizza, looking forward to making that. I left the link and info for the Flatbread at the end of the post. I added Fat Boy J B’s Sticky Stuff Sauce to the Chicken to give that delicious BBQ taste and added Shredded Lettuce and sliced Black Olives also. This made one delicious lunch!
