Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 


For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy morning out and 52 degrees. Had a high of 84 degrees with rain moving in the late afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Meijer to pick up some Herb and Pepper Plants. I’ve got Sweet Basil and Sweet Peppers growing so far. I love planting stuff and watching it grow. I guess I learned to love that from Grandparents. I was always out on their farm during the Summer. Really miss them and those fun days! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. The Panko gives the Sandwich a great crunch. The Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish which makes for one excellent Fish Sandwich.

 


For my Fries I’m using my favorite, Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s my 4th day of Fish and Seafood – Shrimp, Walleye, Fried Oysters, and Cod today. For Dessert later something new, a Skinny Cow Frozen Greek Yogurt Fudgetastic Swirl Bar.

Today’s Menu; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I reheated the leftover Skillet Potatoes and Ham from yesterday. To prepare it I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, Humid and 81 degrees today. After Breakfast I headed off to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. Stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Really too humid for me to do a lot outside today, that and my allergies! We have had bad pollen count all this Spring and my allergies are proof! Did a few things around the house then laid down for a while, bad sinus headache today. For Dinner tonight its a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 


To prepare the Sandwiches I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

 


While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

 


I had already preheated the oven, so as the Sandwich was finishing cooking I baked my Fries, I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Green Tea Snapple to drink, love that Snapple!

Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Outside Humid and sunny, 88 degrees. We have rain moving in later today. Well last night I dropped my Camera so late yesterday I went to Best Buy and purchased another one with a bit of an upgrade. But it won’t work with my computer so I had to take it back and search for another one! Finally found one that worked with my computer. Same as the old one with a slight upgrade and got it on sale! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet, on medium heat, that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I added a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar with about 1 minute of cook time left. Topped with the Chicken Bacon and served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger!

 

For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I tried a sample of it at Kroger a while back and really loved the taste. It melts perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. Our Cheese of choice lately!

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Burger I baked some of my favorite Fries – Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Started a load of laundry for Mom and did some quick house cleaning. I had to have Mom up to the center where Dad is to sign some insurance papers. As she signed those I went and spent some time with Dad. Back home later i did some cleaning of the outdoor chairs and table and then cleaned up the shed. For Dinner tonight its a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

Nothing to eat or drink but water after 11:00 tonight, I have to fast. I have to be at the Doctor’s Office at 8:00, testing cholesterol, sugar, and such.

Today’s Menu: Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was in the low 30’s this morning when I went out to fetch the morning papers. It was cloudy and mid 40’s out for the day then. Mostly cloudy and a high of 50 degrees today. We need some bright sunny days around here, these cloudy and gray days are getting old! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items. Then picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. After Lunch we headed up to see Dad for a while. He’s not doing good at all, the Dementia is advancing quickly now. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

I used the healthy and delicious Jennie O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausages. I had a package of two in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I pan fried them, using Pam w/ Olive Oil Cooking Spray and no oil needed. Heated the pan on medium and cooked a total of about 17 minutes, turning the Sausages occasionally. They fry up plump and brown, as always Jennie – O Products always have that fresh taste to them. The Sausages have 160 calories and 0 carbs per Sausage. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Love these, thank you Jennie – O!

 


Then for a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. The more I have these the more I’m liking them! Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Baked Battered Cod Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, lightly fried some of the leftover Baked Ham, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain, Thunderstorms, and a high of 70 degrees. Real Spring time weather! After Lunch we went over to spend some time with Dad. He seems to going down hill quickly now, talks out of his head a lot. Sure hate to him suffer and go through this. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Battered Cod Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

 

 

I used Trident PubHouse Battered Cod. I always buy a couple of boxes of this when I’m at Jungle Jim’s International Market and now Kroger carries them also. They have all different types and breading of Fish fillets. I like the Battered Cod because it’s a little lower in calories and carbs than the others. I baked the Cod at 425 degrees for 16 minutes, turning once. This is the best tasting frozen fish I’ve found, nice size Fillets with an excellent Beer Batter Breading! Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun.

 

 

To go with our Sandwiches I baked some of my favorite Fries – Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Started my morning off by toasting 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared a Sunnyside Up Egg, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 53 degrees and cloudy out today. Well Dad is in a rehab center here in West Chester until Friday. We love dad but we really needed the break, we are totally exhausted. We went up for a couple hours this afternoon to be with him. He’s doing real good but his health is quickly getting worse. After Breakfast I went Walmart for printing ink and copy paper. I stopped by the ATM, got gas, and picked up Breakfast for Mom before coming home. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu; Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start the morning of I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. After Breakfast I had to go to Kroger to pick for a couple of items for Mom. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad.For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries. We ended up with about 2 or 3 inches of snow. But most of it already melted, 44 degrees for a high today! Hospice is going to help us with Dad from here on out. So we’ll be looking for an assisted living center with their help. Sure hate that we have to do it but it’s for his safety also as has fallen 5 times the last month. So it’s for the best. For Dinner tonight its a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.

 

To prepare the Sandwiches I’ll need; Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, French’s Yellow Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I used the flat top Griddle to grill it with. I sprayed the griddle with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and spread about 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter on it. Heated it on medium heat. I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

 

 


While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Sour Dough Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo, the Boar’s Head Ham, the Sargento Swiss, French’s Mustard, and added the top slice of the Sour Dough Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! I love Grilled Sandwiches!

 

 

 


I had already preheated the oven, so as the Sandwich was finishing cooking I baked my Fries, I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this rainy Saturday morning I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, fried up some slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, melted a slice of Sargento Swiss Cheese on to the Ham, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Really enjoyed this!

 

 

 

 

Had a passing thunder shower later this morning. Had a high of 44 degrees and mostly cloudy. Started a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later did some house cleaning, vacuum and dusted. Then spent the rest of the afternoon watching the NCAA Basketball Tournament. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I had purchased the Tilapia at Costco and had them in the freezer. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillets down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning.

 

 

 

I added Extra Light Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the Smokey and Blackened flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. The Tilapia is such a meaty Fish, I love it! Served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 

 


To go with my Fish Sandwich I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I had a Cheese Omelet. Made it with 2 medium size eggs, a splash of 2% milk, and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Also had a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold morning and day out there today. 22 degrees in the morning with one cold wind blowing. Had a high of 39 degrees, keep thinking Spring is Coming! Did some house cleaning today; ran the vacuum, dusted, and cleaned the kitchen. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. If you’ve never tried this Bacon you need to give it a try. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. After flipping the Burger I added a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar with about 1 minute of cook time left. Topped with the Chicken Bacon and served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. I love Buffalo or Bison if you prefer.

 


For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I tried a sample of it at Kroger a while back and really loved the taste. It melts perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. My Cheese of choice lately!

 

 

 

 

 


To go with my Buffalo Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes.

For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.
