Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Creamy Cheddar Rotini Pasta

 

 

 
To start this 18th day of April I toasted a couple Eggo Waffles. Still love these after all these years! I also made my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What a beautiful day out there today, 77 degrees and sunny! After Breakfast I went to Walmart to pick up a few bottles of gas for the new grill. Also put a new outdoor table and chair in layaway, I’ll get it out after the deck is painted. Back home I had hired a neighborhood repair man to spray and wash the house, deck, and driveway down. Hope he gets time here soon to repaint our wooden deck. Had to change a tire on my 4 wheel mobility chair, picked up a nail. So for Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Creamy Cheddar Rotini Pasta.

 

 

 

I had purchased the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger last week. I rinsed and cleaned the nuggets and froze them. Last night I laid a bag in the fridge to thaw overnight. To prepare them I first seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size as always.I love using all the Zatarain’s Products, perfect for Fish and Seafood!

 

 

To go with my Catfish Nuggets I prepared some Bear Creek Creamy Cheddar Pasta Mix. I had tried this a while back and loved it! I’ve also had the Bear Creek Potato Soup Mix, Navy Bean Soup Mix, Minestrone, and Creamy Chicken Pasta, which all were excellent! To prepare it; Grabbed a 2 quart sauce pan, added 4 cups of water. Heated to a rolling boil. Whisked in the Pasta and Sauce Mix. Brought the mixture back to a rolling boil. Reduced the heat to a medium boil and cooked for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

 

 

 

Removed from the heat and let it sit for 8 minutes. The Sauce thickened up beautifully as it cooled. Another excellent product from Bear Creek. Really enjoy these all these Products! I seasoned the Pasta with just a little sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. The Pasta and Catfish make a great pairing! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.
