Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Diced Potatoes and White Corn Kernels

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Breakfast Sandwiches. I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties and a small roll of Pillsbury Buttery Biscuits. These make a delicious Breakfast Sandwich. 40 degrees and mostly sunny out today. The snow we got has already melted away. With the snow melting I was finally able to get outside! I put away our garbage can along with 4 of my neighbors. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off our deck and driveway areas. Then I did the same for a couple of my elderly neighbors. Feels good to get outside! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Diced Potatoes and White Corn Kernels.

 

I purchased the Yellow Lake Perch from Meijer and had a couple of bags of them in the freezer. I Grabbed 1 of the bags and sat it in the fridge last night to thaw. I love this Yellow Lake Perch but it’s tough finding it! I love using Yellow Lake Perch, fries up a beautiful golden brown and like most fresh water fish has a fantastic taste. It’s not too often I find Yellow Lake Perch so I grabbed these when I came across them.

 

I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and rolled the fillets in my favorite Breading Mix, Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Pan fried them in Bertolli Cooking Olive Oil, on medium heat for 3 minutes per side. They came out with a golden brown crust and were delicious! I love Fish!

 

 

 

 

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Seasoned Diced Potatoes. Just love using all the Simply Potatoes Products, always easy to prepare, fresh and delicious Potato Dishes. But it is becoming very difficult to find. These come seasoned with Seasoning, I added some Sea Salt.

 

 

 

Then for a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Summer Crisp Whole Kernel White Sweet Corn. Just emptied the Corn into a small saucepan and heated to a boil, and served! Very good Sweet Corn. I also heated up some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Yellow Lake Perch
Yellow perch are only found in North America; they are native to the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, and the Great Lakes–St. Lawrence River and Mississippi River basins. … The yellow perch has also been widely introduced for sport and commercial fishing purposes.

Yellow perch is one of the easiest fish to catch, and can be taken in all seasons, and tastes great. Therefore, it is a desirable sport fish in some locations of the US and Canada. It even makes up around 85% of the sport fish caught in Lake Michigan. Despite being a popularly eaten and common species of fish, perch is incredibly rich in various beneficial nutrients. … An average serving of perch contains roughly thirty percent of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin B-12, Phosphorus, Vitamin D, Manganese and Selenium, along with many more

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

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. 42 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. But it was a tad warmer and less windy. Went to Meijer after my Tea, needed a few items and Mom needed some new Paperback Books to read. I stopped and picked up Breakfast for her at McDonald’s. Back home I had to unclog our Kitchen Sink, nothing major. I had it unclogged in no time. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Golden Fries.

 

I love Fish and Seafood, especially Grouper! Just can’t get enough of Fish and Seafood! I had some Grouper Fillets in the freezer so I grabbed a couple of the Fillets and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare them I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. I’ll be using Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning to Bread them with.

 

To prepare the fillets I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until it was well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillet, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. The fillet came out Golden Brown and Delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun. Mom had Tarter Sauce on hers.

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries. Served with some Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

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

 

To start this morning off I fried up some Cook’s Ham Steak, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had to crank that heat up this morning, 10 degrees out there. For the day 32 degrees and sunny. Went and got Mom’s Car Washed, stopped by the ATM, and stopped and filled her car up with gas. Back home I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, a lot of leaves. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had bought the Catfish Nuggets from Meijer 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 as usual.

 

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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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 Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

For Breakfast morning I fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta. We love Goetta it makes one perfect Breakfast treat! With the Goetta I made some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns and had a Sunny Side Up Egg. And as always I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Our coldest morning in a while out there this morning, 26 degrees. 42 degrees for a high, sunny and windy out today. I went to Kroger for Mom. She needed all the ingredients to make her Chex Cereal Mix. On the way back I stopped by the Bank for her and filled her car up with gas. Back home I was sort of slow. I had a bad Sinus Headache all day. This weather we have needs to stay cold or warm. Flop Flopping gets my Sinuses in bad shape! Did a load of laundry and did some light cleaning around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I had a couple of Walleye Fillets in the freezer that I had purchased from Meijer. I sat a Fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. Then I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet 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 it 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!

 

 

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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my morning. Windy, 62 degrees, and rainy out today. After my Tea Mom sent me to Kroger to finish off her list of stuff for Thanksgiving. Hopefully she’s done! As usual it took 3 different electric carts to get everything! This Kroger doesn’t have 1 cart that stays charged. I think it’s a disgrace and disrespectful that a store as big as Kroger is can not provide carts for those of us that handicaps. I’ve called corporate as has the Manager of the Kroger to complain but I guess it falls on deaf ears. I wish there was more options! All we can do is make the best of it! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

I haven’t had a Fish Sandwich and Tater Tots in a while and it sounded good for tonight’s Dinner! 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 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 a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun (2 carbs).

 

 

 

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Tater Tots as I was baking the Fish. Just baked at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Mac and Cheese and Baked French Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Cloudy, a high of 58 degrees and cool breeze blowing out there today. After Tea I went to Meijer for a few items. Back home nothing to do today, which is good because my Sinuses are killing me today. Big change in the weather and temperature. It should clear up in a day or so, hopefully. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Mac and Cheese and Baked French Bread.

 

I purchased more of the Yellow Lake Perch from Meijer earlier today. I love this Yellow Lake Perch! I rinsed the Fillets in cold water then patted them dry and put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and on into the fridge until ready to use. I love using Yellow Lake Perch, fries up a beautiful golden brown and like most fresh water fish has a fantastic taste. It’s not too often I find Yellow Lake Perch so I grabbed these when I saw them.

 

I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and rolled the fillets in my favorite Breading Mix, Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Pan fried them in Bertolli Cooking Olive Oil, on medium heat for 3 minutes per side. They came out with a golden brown crust and were delicious! I love Fish!

 

 

 

 

To go with my Perch I prepared a cup of Kraft Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. 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! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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

 

No Breakfast this morning I had to fast since last night. I had to be at the Family Doctor at 8:00 this morning. They checked all the vitals, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Sugar and such. I’ll get the results Friday or early next week. It’s another perfect Fall Day out. Sunny and and a high of 71 degrees. After my Doctor Appointment I took Mom over to 1/2 Books, She loves reading! Then We stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast, I even had a Breakfast Sandwich! Back home got outside and did a little yardwork. For Dinner tonight it’s a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had picked up a couple of Orange Roughy Fillets at Jungle Jim’s International Market a while back and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet to thaw in the fridge overnight. I had already rinsed them and had them cut into bun size pieces. To make it I’ll need; the Orange Roughy Fillet, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Flour, Egg Beaters (1/2 cup), Hungarian Paprika, and Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. I’ll serve it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. I first Seasoned the Fillet with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I seasoned the Flour with the added Hungarian Paprika. Then rolled the Fillet in the Flour, next to the Egg Beaters, and finally in the Panko Bread Crumbs.

 

I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added my Fillet. I fried it for 3 minutes per side. It fried up perfectly! Golden Brown on the outside and a moist center. I served it on the Healthy Life Bun. Orange Roughy has such a good taste to it, it’s a very mild Fish. Makes the perfect Fish Sandwich and I love Fish Sandwiches!

 

As my Orange Roughy was cooking I turned the oven on to 425 degrees and baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 78 degrees and rain on and off all day. A good day to stay in and that’s what I did. After my Tea I did a load of laundry. Then off to lay down for a while. My Sinuses are running wild with this change in the weather and I’ve had a bad headache since late last night. Nothing I can do except wait it out, it will pass. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 

I purchased the Walleye at Meijer and 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 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 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. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Mac and Cheese and Baked French Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 77 degrees, very windy and partly cloudy out today. I had to return a rake I bought from Meijer, it came apart after using it 1 time. While at Meijer I picked up a couple of other items also. On the way back I picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Too windy to do a lot outside today. Did a few things in the house and then cleaned out the shed. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Mac and Cheese and Baked French Bread.

 

I purchased the Yellow Lake Perch from Meijer this morning. I rinsed the Fillets in cold water then patted them dry and put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and on into the fridge until ready to use.
