Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’ve said it before but I’m almost back to 100%. Of all the Medications and feeling a lot better. Plus I’m back to my normal sleeping. I had been having trouble getting any sleep but all good now! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with the Fish I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good, it’s been a while since I’ve had any. Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. I also fixed Mom a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and a Skillet of Cornbread

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and a skillet of Cornbread

 

For Breakfast I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a slice of tasted Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. I also heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very humid outside, rain on and off, and a high of 85 degrees. Still recovering from my injuries, but feeling better. I have good days and bad, today not bad. So I thought I would finally get a Dinner Post in. Hope to be back to 100% soon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese and a skillet of Cornbread.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with my Catfish I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container, these are very hard to find anymore. 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!

 

I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. Mom loves Cornbread so I made it for her. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small Cast Iron Skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a Snapple Diet Lemonade/Tea. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

Today’s Menu: Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Golden Fries

 

Hello Everyone, it’s been a while I posted for Dinner. I’m finally starting to feel better after mf fall on July 16th. It’s been tough but there’s improvement everyday and I now have an appetite! So hopefully I’ll be posting a bit more. Thank you for all the emails and well wishes! So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Golden Fries.

 

I used Gorton’s Fish Sandwich Fillets, our favorite! Very easy to prepare. Removed the Fish from the bag. Heated the oven at 425 degrees. Placed the Frozen Fish Fillets in a single layer evenly on a baking sheet. Place the pan on the oven rack. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. I turned the Fish Fillets over halfway through the baking process.

 

These turned out perfect! Golden Brown and nice Flavor to them. I topped the Fish with a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun (2 carbs).

 

 

 

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Fries with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a Breyer’s 90 calorie Vanilla Ice Cream Cup. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 79 degrees and cloudy, humid as always. I had to have Mom at the Dermatologists at 8:30 this morning. Back home I went back to bed. I didn’t sleep well at all last night. I took a 1 hour nap. I’m still achy from my fall over the weekend. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it was well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

 

 

For a side I heated up a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I like using these because there’s one serving in each cup. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canned Salmon
Both canned and fresh fish are a good source of protein and other important nutrients, and one isn’t necessarily healthier than the other. … In fact, a USDA study found slightly higher levels of two omega-3s in canned pink and red salmon than it found in fresh. Canned salmon has other merits, too. Canned salmon is also rich in protein, vitamin D, calcium (from the bones) and healthy omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats are heart healthy fats. They also promote healthy brain development in babies.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another hot and humid day out there. We have a high of 88 degrees and the humidity almost as high. Rain showers by late afternoon. A heavy thunderstorm moved in late yesterday. Heavy rain and strong winds. As the storm passed us it got worse, a tornado and it caused a lot of damage to a County next to ours. So after my Tea I watered the Tomato and Pepper Plants. After Lunch I took a friend to a local Home Depot. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet that I had purchased from Meijer the other day. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheat the broiler. Pat the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Place skin side down on a broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Dish! I also heated up the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans from last night. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites for sure! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. – Wikipedia

Rainbow trout is packed with protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as potassium – all of which can help to manage high blood pressure, improve muscle strength and boost metabolism. Rainbow trout are loaded with phosphorus, and a good source of Vitamins B6, B12, pantothenic acid, and selenium.

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. Another scorcher out there, 95 degrees, humid, sunny with a heat index around 106 degrees. I got up early and watered all the plants and what’s left of my Garden. It’s going to cool down over the weekend but on Monday it’s going right back to the heat and humidity. Not much else to do today. I’m still waiting for the hospital to call for my testing, waiting is the worst part! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 

I purchased the Walleye at Meijer and put it in the freezer. I placed it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I 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 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!

 

For one side dish I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse and clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place the pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving.

 

For another side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread, Meijer finally had some back in stock. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper.

Today’s Menu: Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Golden Fries

 

I had to fast again for my Doctor Appointment at 8:00 this morning. I had to go to my family Doctor to test my Sugar, Cholesterol and such. From my Urologist Doctor visit yesterday they found that had blood in my urine. Not a lot but traces. So to be on the safe side I have to go to the Hospital for an Ultrasound to see if they can tell where the blood is coming from. It’s another miserable day out there. It’s 95 degrees with a heat index at 107 degrees, it’s so humid out there. It’s way too hot out there to do anything much. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Golden Fries.

 

I used Gorton’s Fish Sandwich Fillets, our favorite! Very easy to prepare. Removed the Fish from the bag. Heated the oven at 425 degrees. Placed the Frozen Fish Fillets in a single layer evenly on a baking sheet. Place the pan on the oven rack. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. I turned the Fish Fillets over halfway through the baking process.

 

These turned out perfect! Golden Brown and nice Flavor to them. I topped the Fish with a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun (2 carbs).

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 95 degrees, sunny, and extremely humid. The heat index has at 105 degrees. I had to be at the Doctor at 8:10 this morning, just a check up. Then it was back home for major cleanups. I’ve lived here since 2001 and last night was the worst and strongest storm to this area. We were lucky as a lot of people had damage to their home or car, we had none. Plus a lot of people have been without power since 9:00 last night. So with no air condition in this weather is bad! A lot of areas are still without power. The damage we did have was my garden. I have just 1 maybe 2 Tomato Plants left and 2 or 3 Pepper Plants left. But at least we have power and no other damage, very thankful for that. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it was well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

I like using these because there’s one serving in each cup. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked French Bread

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny, 90 degrees, and humid out today. It’s a hot one! After Breakfast I took Mom to Miracle Ear for adjustments on her hearing aid. On the way back Mom wanted to stop at the Dollar Store, although there’s nothing for a dollar anymore there. Back home I watered all the plants and Mom’s flowers. I did some touch-up painting on the wooden deck out front. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked French Bread.

 

I just love the combo of Salmon and Rice! I had purchased a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer and had it in the freezer. I sat the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

To prepare it; I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Laid the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

 

For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one of my favorites from 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. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with the Salmon. Then I also baked a mini loaf of French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf to start my day off. 70 degrees and cloudy out today. Happy Memorial Day Weekend to everyone! So after my Tea I took my Mom and Cousins to the Cemetery and we decorated my Aunt, Grand Parents and Dad’s graves with flowers. We swept and cleaned up around all the grave sites. Back home did a little yard work. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had bought the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. 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 for 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 and meaty.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes and Green Beans. I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 90 Calorie Cup Of Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia
