Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Then I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns along with frying up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Lot of rain overnight, a couple of thunderstorms had the night lit up. Mostly cloudy today high in the 70’s. After Breakfast did a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch went up to see Dad for a while at rehab. He’s been doing a lot better of late. Back home not a lot going on so I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight its Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 


I had purchased a couple of small Walleye Fillets at Meijer yesterday and had them in the fridge. To prepare them I rinsed them off in cold water and patted them dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

To go with the Walleye I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Whole Grain Brown Rice. To prepare it just microwave. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat for 90 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy.

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life seasoned-haddock-w-creamy-parmesan-risotto-and-sliced-carrots-006Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After a night of heavy rain and thunder storms, the morning was quiet but a lot cooler. We had a record high of 76 degrees yesterday and a high of 41 degrees today! There goes my Sinuses again!Just as soon as they get adjusted to warm weather, here comes the cool weather back. Cloudy and breezy out. After Lunch I went up to see Dad for a while at the rehab center. Back home took a quick nap and watched some College Basketball. For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Haddock w/ Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Sliced Carrots.

 
I had purchased 2 Haddock fillets from Kroger the day before. I rinsed both fillets and cut into smaller pieces. I froze Seasoned Haddock w Green Beans and Fried Polenta 002one bag and kept the other one out for my Dinner tonight. So to prepare them I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is. These make a great Fish Sandwich also!

Today’s Menu: Pan-Roasted Chicken with Vegetables and Herbs

 

 

 
For Breakfast this morning i prepared a Poached Egg that I served on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English pan-roasted-chicken-with-vegetables-and-herbs-012Muffin. Topped it off with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was a long night and morning around the house today. Mom got sick late last night, with an upset stomach. From around 11:00 last night until around 9:00 this morning, she couldn’t keep anything down. As the morning went on she was able to rest a bit. So between her and Dad it was very busy day. As sick as Mom was my Dad is in worse shape and getting worse every day. Dad is 95 with breathing difficulties and dementia. We have to do most everything for him and he’s starting to be more difficult to deal with thanks to the dementia. I t would be easier to handle all this if I wasn’t in a wheelchair, but that’s not going to change! So you do what you have to do to take care of your parents. Hopefully Mom will be back on her feet in a day or so, she’s feeling somewhat better. For Dinner I wanted to prepare a good and delicious hot meal tonight. So tonight I prepared Pan-Roasted Chicken with Vegetables and Herbs.

 

 

I wanted a good hearty comfort food for dinner after a long day so I went with a dish I haven’t made in a while, the pan-roasted-chicken-with-vegetables-and-herbs-001Pan Sauteed Chicken With Vegetables And Herbs. I Just love these one pan wonder meals! Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts, Herbs, Potatoes, and Carrots you know it has to be good! To prepare it I’ll need; Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Hungarian Paprika, All Purpose Flour, Chicken Breasts, Extra Light Olive Oil, Baby Gold Potatoes (cut in halves), Whole Baby Carrots, Swanson Chicken Stock, Lemon Juice, Fresh Oregano, and Fresh Thyme. If you’ve been looking for one delicious Chicken Dish for the family, this is it!

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 
For Breakfast this morning it was Hash Browns, Smoked Turkey Sausage, Toast, and Decaf Green Tea. I had went tobaked-salmon-w-wild-and-long-grain-rice-and-whole-baby-carrots-007 Meijer and they finally had the Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns back in stock! It had been a few weeks since any store had them in stock. So I prepared the Hash Browns and then I prepared a 1/2 Sausage link of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. Added a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, and that’s a Breakfast! Big change in the weather again! 50 degrees for a high with rain on and off all day, beats in the teens and snow! So with not a lot going on outside I did some cleaning on the inside. I cleaned and straightened the pantry and the the freezer and refrigerator. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 
I had purchased the Salmon Fillet last week from Meijer and had it in the freezer. Grabbed the fillet out of the freezerBaked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 001 and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it, I rinsed it off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. I just love all Fish and Seafood.

To go worth the Salmon I microwaved a bag of Uncle Ben‘s Ready Rice – Long Grain and Wild. I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready.

Today’s Menu: White Lake Perch w/ 3 Cheese Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 
For Breakfast I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Mini white-lake-perch-w-3-cheese-potatoes-and-whole-baby-carrots-012Links. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Wow, it poured the rain last night and then rained some more. Last night it was even thundering and lightening. If this had come in as snow we have got around 10 inches! But by morning the rains had stopped and it started getting windy and colder, cloudy out all day. Our new Hoover Cordless Sweeper came in yesterday, so I put that together and got it charged. While that was charging I used the old sweeper and vacuumed and dusted. Had everything done by Lunch so I could kick back and watch an afternoon of NFL Football. Then for Dinner tonight I prepared White Lake Perch w/ 3 Cheese Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 

white-lake-perch-w-3-cheese-potatoes-and-whole-baby-carrots-001

I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had already cleaned it and had it in the freezer. I laid the bag of Perch in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I’ll be seasoning them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix.

 

 

 

white-lake-perch-w-3-cheese-potatoes-and-whole-baby-carrots-005
Using a tin pie pan, I filled it with 3 tablespoons of the Zatarain’s Mix. Next I seasoned the Perch with the Lite Salt. Then rolled the fillets in the Breading mix, completely covering them. Then added a few of them to the preheated skillet. I fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out a golden brown! The Perch was delicious, just love fresh water fish as I do all Fish. Meijeris about the only store that carries the White Perch and they also will have Yellow Lake Perch from time to time.

 

 
For one side I prepared a package of the Little Potato Company, 3 Cheese Potatoes. While at Meijer I picked up a Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Savory Herb Potatoes and Cut Green Bea 012package of the Little Potato Company 3 Cheese Potatoes. I had tried the Savory Herb a couple of times now and really enjoy them, being the Potato Freak I am! So tonight I gave the 3 Cheese a try and everyone enjoyed it. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have on hand! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

To start the morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my early morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and my morning workout I headed of to Meijer. Mom needed some items as I did also. Cold morning, in the 20’s with a cold breeze. For the day it was a high around 45 degrees and partly sunny. After Meijer I had to stop by the bank and stopped and got gas. Not a lot going on this afternoon so I relaxed and got caught up on shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Savory Herb Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots.

Next mixed the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic powder and green onion in small bowl. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Placed the salmon in large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerated for 30 minutes. Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Removed the salmon from marinade. Discarded the remaining marinade.

Baked the salmon for 11 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting the fillet 1/2 way through the baking time with the reserved marinade. The salmon came out perfect, and what flavor! The orange juice, soy sauce, and honey combine for a perfect marinade. Then you get the taste of the ginger and garlic powder, outstanding! A for sure Keeper Recipe! I baked my salmon where the original recipe calls for grilling it. The original recipe and web link are at the end of the post.

For one side dish I prepared some Sugar Snap Peas, I had picked these up at Kroger the day before.They come packaged fresh. To prepare them I heated 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Olive Oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Added the Sugar Snap Peas, tossing occasionally for 5 to 6 minutes, until the Sugar Snap Peas were crisp tender.

Then for a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Another canned Vegetable that’s as good as fresh. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer until heated through. I also baked a can of Pillsbury Breadsticks. Still searching for a replacement for the Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread in which Pillsbury no longer makes, why no clue it was their best! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookie and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w/ Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots

 
For Breakfast I made some French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For the French Toast I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Cinnamon. I topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 015and Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Then I also fried up some Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had that every morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast did some light house cleaning. On outside it’s a beautiful Morning and Day out there today! Sunny, 79 degrees for a high, and NO Humidity! Swept off the wooden deck and driveway and done with chores of the day. Got the cart out along with my fishing pole, doing some fishing today! Went on down to the neighborhood lake and parked the cart and did some fishing. So relaxing and beautiful out. Caught about 5 Blue Gills and 1 small Bass, returned all of the them back in the lake. Love days like this! For Dinner tonight I prepared Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w/ Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 005
I used the Wild Idea Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips. For the Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. Then in a small bowl I mixed the following Spices together; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Thyme, Dried Basil, Roasted Cumin, and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Oregano. Amounts are to taste. Next I got Cast Iron Skillet out. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated it on medium low heat on the stove.

 

 

I then put a light coat of Extra Virgin Oil on all sides of the Medallion. Then Seasoned the Buffalo with the Spice Mixture, making sure to season all sides. Added the Medallions to the skillet and cooked it for 1 minutes a side, just Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 012started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillet Cooking! I then baked them for 6 minutes to a medium rare, to an internal temperature of 130 – 135° F when taken out of oven. Trust your meat thermometer and your eyes! Always remember that Buffalo cooks a lot quicker than Beef, so its low and slow when cooking. After removing the Buffalo from the oven I let it rest 5 minutes before serving. As far as I’m concerned Beef can’t compare to the taste of Buffalo, or Bison! The Spices worked great with natural sweet taste of the Wild Idea Buffalo, and medium-rare is the perfect temperature. The Medallions are so flavorful and tender. I’ll have to make sure to order more here in the near future.

 

Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 010
To go with the Tips I prepared some Ronzoni Smart Taste Extra Wide Noodles. First time I’ve used these. They are 180 calories, 0.5 g total fat, 39 carbs, and 5g of fiber per serving. Nice source of Fiber. To prepare it; Bring 2 qts. water to a rapid boil. To add flavor and reduce stickiness, add salt. Add the pasta and stir; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally. Drain well. i boiled it for 7 minutes, till tender. Ronzoni has a winner here, cooks up great and very tender.

Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. Also had a slice of buttered Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Cut Green Beans and Potatoes, Sliced Carrots, and French Bread

 
Starting off another post by sending prayers to all those that lost their lives and the many injured over in Nice, France. Another senseless attack on the Human Race. It’s time this Country rallies the World against these terrorist! Again my thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.

 
For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, topped with just a dab of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I heated some Boar’s Head Branded Deluxe Ham in a large skillet. As the Ham was heating up I Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Beans Potatoes Carrots 001Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg White. Topped the Ham and Egg off with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Calorie Shredded Sharp Cheddar. Fantastic, and healthy, way to start the day! It’s somewhat cooler out, 84 degrees, but still humid with passing showers. Did a load of laundry for Mom and we had to have Dad at his Family Doctor for a check-up. Everything seemed to be good so it was back home. For Dinner tonight Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Cut Green Beans and Potatoes, Sliced Carrots, and French Bread.

 

 
I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger yesterday, a small one at just over 1 lb. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast Mashed Potatoes Cut Ita 011Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! The other “White Meat” sure is good!

 
For one side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I really like using the Del Monte Cut Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and 012Green Beans and New Potatoes, contains 2 of my favorite vegetables (Green Beans and Potatoes). I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Another canned Vegetable that’s as good as fresh. Growing up I wouldn’t look at a Carrot, now I could have them every day! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Diced Potatoes, Ham, and Egg 003

For Breakfast I made everyone Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. 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 everything with a Sunny Side Egg and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. Just love starting off the day with a skillet meal!

 

 

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 010

We are having a rough go with dad back home from rehab. He should have been kept longer with more therapy. He’s still real weak and I believe his dementia is getting worse. I hope it will work out. Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom and picked up around the house. For dinner tonight its Baked Salmon w/ Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 001

I had the Salmon Fillet in the freezer. Grabbed a fillet out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it, I rinsed it off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. I just love all Fish and Seafood.

 

 

Whole Baby Carrots
For one side I prepared a Baked Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.
