Today’s Menu: Stuffed Clams w/ Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese and Baked Whole Grain Bread
To start my day off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a temperature record-setting day here today! 76 degrees but windy and cloudy. So that’s 2 days in a row we’ve 70 degrees or better. But that ends by Saturday morning, only a high of 39 degrees but back in the 60’s by Monday. After Lunch went up and spent most of the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center. On the way back home stopped by Kroger for a couple of items for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared Stuffed Clams w/ Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese and Baked Whole Grain Bread.
For the Stuffed Clams; I purchased these at Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they have in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often now,we love them! For my Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right and the Louisiana Remoulade Sauce is perfect to dip it in. Plus they are only $1 per Clam.
For side to go with the Clams I prepared some Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. I normally have the regular Mac and Cheese but I seen the 50% Whole Grain at Meijer and picked up a 4 pack of them. It comes in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! Seafood and Mac and Cheese are just a natural pairing. I also baked the other half of the LaBrea Whole Grain Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
Made with 50% whole grain. 19 g of whole grain per serving (nutritionists recommend eating at least three one-ounce equivalents of whole grain products per day [about 16 g whole grain per serving or at least 48 g per day]. One serving of this product contains 19 g whole grain, approximately 39% of the minimum daily amount). Ready in 3.5 minutes. Just add water.

Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams
Set Sail for Something Different for Dinner Tonight!
It’s the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Instead of reaching for another steak, pork chop, or that old standby, chicken nuggets for the kids, set sail for something different:
a bounty of delicious options from under the sea.
With families today looking for healthier and more flavorful meal options than ever before, seafood lovers young and old will enjoy discovering new items in the frozen seafood section that are convenient, affordable and tasty. That’s why, Matlaw’s, creator of America’s #1 Seafood Appetizer, has introduced a full line of products that the whole family will love.
From classic New England Style, Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo or Chili Lime Stuffed Clams served in a natural clam shell; to Crispy Original, Barbecue, or Coconut Popcorn Shrimp; and Southwest Tortilla Breaded Cod, Jalapeño Breaded Cod, or Pubstyle Battered Cod, these exciting new flavor combinations are sure to have family members asking for more every night of the week.
For many families the Stuffed Clams have become a favorite. Each natural clamshell is filled with a delectable breadcrumb stuffing with clams, green and red peppers, and delicate spices, and individually frozen to insure freshness and flavor. They’re great on the grill and so easy to prepare. Instead of turning on the oven and heating up the kitchen, simply wrap in a foil “boat” and place right on the grill on medium heat for 25 minutes. Pair with a crunchy green salad and top with butter and lemon, (or a dash of hot sauce for the truly adventurous), is all it takes to satisfy the family.
