Today’s Menu: Crunchy Breaded Fish Sticks w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese

 

 
For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Eggo Waffles, lightly topped with butter, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Already 49 degrees this morning, warmest in a while. For the day it was mostly cloudy and a high of 70 degrees, about time! After Breakfast I went to Kroger to pick up some groceries for Mom. She was out of a lot things and dad will be home tomorrow after being gone 2 months in the hospital and rehab. Be great to have him back home. After Lunch I pulled out my mobility cart from the shed and cleaned it up. Then swept shed out. I also grabbed the leaf blower and cleaned of the deck and around the driveway. Kept it simple for Dinner tonight. I made some Crunchy Breaded Fish Sticks w/ Whole Grain Mac and Cheese.

 

So it’s Fish Sticks tonight! I’m using Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Breaded Fish Sticks. Growing up I lived on Fish Sticks. When I was at Meijer the other day I seen these in the frozen foods and bought a package of them and the Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Fillets. These are coated with Panko Bread Crumbs and to prepare them I’ll be baking them. I first preheated the oven at 375 degrees. I then took a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Sprayed the foil with Pam Cooking Spray and lined the Fish Sticks up on the sheet. Then baked them for 22 minutes, flipping them over after 11 minutes.

 

 

 

 

They came out piping hot, nice crunch from the Panko Bread Crumb Coating and nicely Seasoned. I’ve got another great item for the freezer, a good one to have on hand. Served them with a side of McCormick Tarter Sauce.

 

 

 

 

For side to go with the Fish Sticks 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. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
