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).

 

 

 

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Fries with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

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. 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!

 

 

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 Coke Zero to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cups are just the right size of delicious Stouffer’s Mac and Cheese.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Atlantic Salmon
The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.

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

Today’s Menu: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a toasted Thomas English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had heavy rain and thunderstorms overnight again. For the day it’s 68 degrees and cloudy, cooler and no humidity today. After my Tea I went outside and cleaned the yard and deck from the storm last night. Later did a few things inside. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I picked up the Ocean Perch at Meijer the other day, cleaned them and had them in the fridge. Really love the Meijer Seafood Department, very good selections. To prepare them I preheated a medium size skillet that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added Cooking Olive Oil, on medium heat. Lightly seasoned them with the McCormick Sea Salt. I then put them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag and added Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri, shaking the bag then until the Perch Fillets were coated. Added the Fillets to the heated skillet and fried them 2 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack I had a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ocean Perch
Ocean perch is mild tasting yet a bit sweet, with a moderately firm texture. The meat is lean, moist and flaky. Large ocean perch develop a coarse texture. Deep-skinned ocean perch with the fat line removed has the most delicate flavor. The flesh is white, though not as light as cod, and it turns opaque white when cooked. Whole fish may have bulging eyes and distended air bladders, which is a result of being brought up from great depths, not an indication of poor quality.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg which I served on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees with rain in the morning and sunny for the afternoon. After it cleared off I got out the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. I finished adding Potting Soil to the Planter Boxes. 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 Chocolate Pudding. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Grilled Seasoned Cod w/ Roasted Corn and Whole New Potatoes

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. I needed a few things so I headed to Meijer around 10:30. It was crowded already. I noticed that more and more people are wearing their face masks again, I always wear mine. Back home I had my Garden to take care of. My Pepper and Tomato Plants have really come around since the rough weather start. Got to go running short on time. For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Seasoned Cod w/ Roasted Corn and Whole New Potatoes.

 

I purchased the Cod from Meijer earlier. I seasoned it with Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, and different Dried Herbs. Next I got the Grill ready. I lined the grate with foil and sprayed it with Pam Grilling Non Stick Spray. With Grill heated up I added my Cod Fillets. They only need about 2 minutes a side and done.

 

 

 

For one side I opened a can of Del Monte Whole Kernel Fire Roasted Corn Blend. Meijer finally had this in stock again today! I love Corn Blend. To prepare it I heat it up as the other Del Monte Product, small sauce pan and heat.

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. Just heat and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Good last minute Dinner! The Cod was delicious and along with the 2 side dishes it was a very good Meal! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cod is a popular fish known for its mild flavor and dense, flaky flesh. It’s one of the most common fish used for making fish and chips.

Cod is the common name for the demersal fish genus Gadus, belonging to the family Gadidae. Cod is also used as part of the common name for a number of other fish species, and one species that belongs to genus Gadus is commonly not called cod. Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Blackened Orange Roughy and Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges

 

 

To start this Sunday Morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It started off cloudy with a real light shower but turned sunny later. A high of 77 degrees! Finally warm weather. Spent most of the afternoon doing work in the yard and for a elderly neighbor. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Orange Roughy and Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges.

 

I purchased an Orange Roughy Fillet from Meijer a while back and had it in the freezer. I laid the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. The Orange Roughy Fillet was nice size and looked beautiful. I decided to Blacken it, I love all Blackened Fish and Seafood. I’ll need Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning, Blue Bonnet Butter, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt. Cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet in Butter and Cooking Olive Oil.

 

To prepare it I started by rinsing the Fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it in half. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning and Sea Salt. Then I got out the Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated I added my Snapper. Cooked it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! The taste of the Red Snapper with the added Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning makes it one delicious Fish Dish!

 

As my Orange Roughy was cooking I baked my Fingerling Potato Wedges. I had preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Then for a side I prepared some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. I purchased these at Jungle Jim’s. To start I first washed the Potatoes off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 425 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. I love Fingerling Potatoes, probably my favorite Potato. Just love how easy they cook up and taste. Excellent Meal with the Sandwich and Baked Potato Wedges! For Dessert tonight I’m having a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Chocolate Ice Cream Cup.

 

 

 

 

Orange Roughy Fillet

The orange roughy, also known as the red roughy, slimehead and deep sea perch, is a relatively large deep-sea fish belonging to the slimehead family. The UK Marine Conservation Society has categorized orange roughy as “vulnerable to exploitation”. Wikipedia

Protein. Orange roughy and tilapia serve as a rich source of protein, although tilapia provides slightly more; tilapia has 45.5 grams per serving and orange roughy has 38.9 grams per serving. The protein in these varieties of fish is considered complete, meaning that they contain all nine essential amino acids.

 

 

 

Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning

This spicy seasoning blend is rubbed on the outside of fish (or chicken, steak or other meats) for blackening. Also great as a seasoning rub for the grill or broiler.
Ingredients:
SALT, PAPRIKA, CAYENNE PEPPER, BLACK PEPPER, WHITE PEPPER, CHILI POWDER, MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE, ONION, GARLIC, SPICES.

Today’s Menu: Salt and Pepper Salmon Bites w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a 2 Egg Bacon and Cheese Omelet. I was hungry and the Omelet hit the spot! I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside a cool breeze most of the day. A high of 58 degrees and mostly cloudy. I’m beginning to wonder if Spring or Summer will ever get here! Finally got the yard done! We raked the flower beds of leaves and the older wood chips. Then put down the new Black Wood Chips, it looks great. For the lawn, the Winter was rough on everyone’s lawn. I’ve been putting lawn seed and grass fertilizer down since early March and it’s paid off. The lawn looks great also! I have everything ready for when or if it gets warm out. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salt and Pepper Salmon Bites w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

I bought a package of Salmon Bites at Meijer the other day. It seems all stores have Salmon Bites now, which must be the new trend! To prepare them I’ll be needing Cooking Olive Oil,  McCormick Dried Cilantro, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Black Pepper. I’ll be cooking it in a skillet that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of the Cooking Olive Oil on medium heat. I washed the Salmon off in cold water and dried them with a paper towel. I put the Salmon Bites in a bowl and added some Olive Oil to it. I then made sure I covered all the Salmon in the Oil. I then seasoned them with Sea Salt, Black Pepper and Cilantro.

 

With the skillet heated and ready I added the Salmon to it. I cooked it 2 minutes a side, and done. The Salmon Bites were small so it took just 2 minutes a side to get done. They turned out delicious, the Seasoning was perfect. I’ll have to have the Bites more often.

 

 

 

To go with the Salmon I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Long Grain and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat the pouch in the microwave and serve. Love Rice! I also had a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Roll.  For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.
