Today’s Menu: Baked Pacific Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. These are fresh Sausage Links, a new product. They fried up great and tasted just as good! Johnsonville has a full line of Turkey Sausage Products, love them all! I also made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good way to start a Sunday Morning. I went to Kroger up the road to their Seafood Dept. I wanted some Fish for Dinner. We have one of those late Summer Hot August Day out there today! 98 degrees, sunny and very humid. I’m still not 100%, allergies still bothering me. So not a lot going on again. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Pacific Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread.

 

At Kroger this morning I purchased a package of fresh California Garlic Medley Seasoned Pacific Cod Fillets. These really looked good so I purchased a package. To prepare it I’ll be baking it. First I preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Then I placed the fillets in a 13×9-in. baking dish coated with Pam Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I baked the Cod for 25 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

Removed the baking dish from the oven and served the Cod. It came out perfect, moist with excellent Seasoning. The Garlic Medley was a perfect Seasoning for it. I’ll have to purchase another package soon, makes a great Meal!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Cod 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! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cod
Cod is both a nutritious and flavorful fish loaded with lean protein, vitamins, and minerals. Although lower in omega-3s than fatty fish, cod can still be part of a healthy diet. Cod contains less mercury than some seafood, including popular fish like tuna, and can be prepared in multiple ways.

Today’s Menu: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Cheddar Potato Bake

 

 

 

To start my morning off I had a bowl of Cheerios’s and also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 82 degrees and sunny outside, and low humidity! A beautiful day out! After Breakfast I went and had Mom’s car washed and I vacuumed the inside out. Then to McDonald’s to pick her Breakfast. Got some work done inside and then it was outside. Got the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then raked the front yard again. So many leaves for this time of year. Then kept the cart out and enjoyed the beautiful day! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Ocean Perch w/ Cheddar Potato Bake.

 

 

 

 

 

I picked up the Ocean Perch at Kroger the other day, cleaned them and had them in the freezer. Really love the Kroger Seafood Department, good selections. I laid the bag in the fridge to thaw overnight. To prepare them I preheated a medium size skillet, that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added Extra Light 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 3 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!

 

 

 

 

For a side I prepared a Stouffer’s Cheddar Potato Bake. Another easy to prepare and delicious dish. To prepare this one I’m using the microwave. It comes in a microwavable tray. I just slit the film cover on the tray and microwaved it for 6 minutes, Done! I love this side by Stouffer’s! Delicious Potato Dish, really like the bread crumb topping. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero 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: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rough night, dealing with Phantom Pains all night. They finally let up about 10:00 this morning but it pretty much ruined my day today. Cleaned the house and then took it easy and caught up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. I had one last fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were 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 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 

 

 

 

To go with Fish Sandwich I prepared a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mano Tea Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Started my morning off with a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees, low humidity, mostly sunny and a nice light breeze blowing out today! After Breakfast I did a couple loads of laundry. Next I cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. Later on got the cart out and took a ride around the neighborhood. For dinner tonight I prepared a Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

 


For dinner tonight I prepared a Lemon Baked Cod.

To prepare the Cod I first preheated oven to 400°. In a shallow bowl, mixed lemon juice and butter. In a separate shallow bowl, mixed flour and seasonings. Dip fillets the in lemon juice mixture, then in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Placed the fillets in a 13×9-in. baking dish coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Drizzle with remaining lemon juice mixture. Baked 12 minutes and the fish just began to flake easily with a fork. Mix parsley and lemon peel; sprinkle over fish. The Cod came out so flavorful! The Lemon is perfect with Cod.

 

 

 

 

 

 


For one side dish 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! Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, buttered it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

Today’s Menu: Izzy’s Boneless Cod Sandwich

 

 

 

For Breakfast I had a fried Egg Sunny Side Up, Hash Browns, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Opened the door to go out and get the newspapers and it feels like you’re walking into a blast furnace! 97 degrees and humid outside today. We have an excessive heat warning out for the next few days. Highs in and around 100 degrees with the heat index up around 110 degrees and more! The over night low will be in the mid 80’s. Say hello to my air conditioner! Nothing going on outside at all today. It’s even so hot that I’m not even going to fire the Kitchen up for a second straight day. I shut the Kitchen down and went to Izzy’s!

 

 

 

 

 

Well they say if you can’t take the heat, get out of the Kitchen! And that is what I’m doing tonight! So I’m having the Izzy’s Boneless Cod Sandwich. I love these always so good and you can’t get mush easier for clean up! Plus we are only 3 miles from the Izzy’s Deli. The Sandwich is huge! Nice size Battered Cod Fillet, seasoned just right. It comes on Rye Bread with Tarter Sauce. One delicious Sandwich. I could only eat 1/2 of it, I’ll have the other half for Lunch tomorrow. It came with a Potato Pancake which I gave to Mom. Mom had the Izzy’s Reuben, her favorite. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Corn Bread

 


Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had one of those long nights last night dealing with those Phantom Pains! Oh how I wish that they would find a cure for Phantom Pains! But for now nothing I can do except to wait them out. They continued until the early afternoon before stopping. So just tried to rest up today when I could. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Corn Bread.

 

 

 

 


I had purchased the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger yesterday. 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 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’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on 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.

 

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 


I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread, for Mom, using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal Fried Catfish, Fried Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and 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: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly Sunny, Humid, and 92 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for mom and then stopped by the ATM and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Did some yard work early, before it got too hot and humid out. Later on went to the hospital to see a our neighbor who was in there recovering from shoulder surgery. For Dinner Tonight a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I purchased a few Pacific Cod Loins from Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of the Cods and sat them in the fridge to thaw overnight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I seasoned the fillets with McCormick Grinders of 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 the Extra Virgin 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. 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 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! They are 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled 2 Eggs, topped them with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Ortega Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread topping the toast with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. And as always a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Passing Showers and 74 degrees out today. My allergies seem to be a little better today! Went to home Depot and picked up some grass seed and fertilizer. Well my small garden is in full bloom. I have 2 Strawberry plants, 3 Tomato plants, 2 Bell Pepper plants, 2 Jalapeno plants, and a Thai Pepper plant. Not a lot going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese.

Today’s Menu: Lemon Pepper and Cumin Crusted Walleye Fillet w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 

To start this Friday morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble – Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Love these, so easy to prepare and make a good Breakfast. Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per cup! The same weather outside again. Passing rain and thunderstorms, humid, and 79 degrees. Had to go to the local Kroger to pick up a couple of items and a prescription for Mom. Cleaned the Kitchen and then took it easy for the afternoon. I’m still dealing with my allergies, everyone around here is suffering! For Dinner tonight Cumin Crusted Walleye Fillet w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

I came across the recipe on the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine website, CUMIN-CRUSTED FISH FILLET WITH LEMON. I’ll be using Walleye as my Fish of Choice. Then for Seasoning I’ll need; Ground Cumin, Thyme, Paprika, Lemon Pepper, and Parsley. I left the original recipe and it’s web link at the end of the post. But after thinking about it I’m going to use Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. I did add a bit of Ground Cumin to the Breading Mix. I’m all for making Cooking easier while keeping the flavors and taste. I had the Walleye in the freezer in a plastic Hefty Bag. Laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it, in a pie pan I added the Zatarain Mix. Rubbed the mix on both sides of fillets.

 

 

 

Then in a large skillet, set over medium heat, heat Extra Light Olive Oil. Add the Walleye and cook until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Sprinkled with parsley and done! Love all the Zatarain’s Mixes on Fish and Seafood!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Walleye, as it was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 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 bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CUMIN-CRUSTED FISH FILLET WITH LEMON

Today’s Menu: Lemon Pepper Seasoned Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese and French Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning, not hungry this morning. Dealing with allergies again! Everyone seems to be dealing with it this year. Nothing seems to work to get it to ease up but rest and quiet. So that was my day today. Mostly sunny, humid and a high of 90 out today. For Dinner tonight its Lemon Pepper Seasoned Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese and French Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted something light and easy to prepare for Dinner tonight. So I had bought a small package of Lemon Pepper Seasoned Ocean Perch from Kroger yesterday and I’m having it tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Its Wild Caught Ocean Perch and it comes seasoned with a Lemon Pepper Blend Seasoning. There’s a little over 1/2 a pound of the Fillets and they came packaged in a ready bake tin pan. I decided to pan fry them instead. I used a medium size skillet. Heated the skillet on medium heat and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Added the Perch and fried them for 2 minutes. Flipped them over and continued to cook them for 2 minutes and they were done. The fillets were not that big but big enough for a light Dinner. The seasoning was perfect and they cooked up perfect.

 

 

 

 

For a side I prepared 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 later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with 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.
