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

 

 

 

Just a cup of Biglow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, beautiful Fall Day out there! I had to pick a Pick and Click order up at Kroger at 10:40. After Lunch I got the cart and rake out and raked some leaves in the backyard, and there were plenty of them! For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Baked 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 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 the Mac and Cheese I used Reser’s Main Street Bistro Signature Macaroni and Cheese. We have used several of their sides now and trying the Mac and Cheese tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be baking it, you can also microwave it. I prefer baking items in the oven. First preheat the oven to 350°F. Next I removed the tray from the package and removed the film. I placed the  container on baking tray and heated it in the oven for 22 minutes. Nice and bubbly around the edges. Let it cool a bit and it’s ready! The Mac and Cheese is delicious! Fantastic Elbow Macaroni with plenty of Cheese, seasoned just right! Excellent Salmon Patty and Baked Mac and Cheese Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fried Potatoes and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green. 72 degrees and rain out today. Much needed rain, everything is dry! We’ve been watering our lawn every other day to help out the front lawn and bushes. Couldn’t do much outside with the rain so I cleaned and straightened the Fridge and then the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fried Potatoes and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I had Stouffer’s Mac and Cheese with mine Mom had the Potatoes.

 

I had a few packages of Walleye Fillets that I had bought from Meijer in the freezer. So I laid a package in the Fridge to thaw overnight. I had already cut the fillets into smaller pieces before freezing them. So to prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I seasoned it 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 made a Cast Iron Skillet of Fried Potatoes. I love these! 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 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.

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Gave Mom a hand doing some Fall Cleaning of the Living Room and Dining Room. Moved everything and vacuumed and dusted. Then cleaned the outside windows, we removed the screens also and sprayed them down. Finally found someone to trim a big tree we have in the front yard, a lot of dead limbs on it. For Dinner tonight Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet, that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. I’m glad I bought as much Rainbow Trout and Walleye as I could because it’s tough to find some now. So I laid the package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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 preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down and cooked it for 3 minutes. Flipped it over and cooked it another 3 minutes 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!

 

Tried another new item tonight, Reser’s Main Street Bistro – Baked Macaroni and Cheese. I came across at Meijer the other day. We had the Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Macaroni and Cheese tonight. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other one was. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Mac and Cheese and loaded with Cheesy flavor! Another Fantastic item to have in the fridge. I also had a slice of the baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread I baked yesterday. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout

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

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Mostly cloudy and 86 degrees, rain moving in late day. Not a thing going on today but rest. I’ve been dealing with some severe Phantom Pains since about 10:00 this morning, not a good day! So 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.

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it 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. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Breaded Catfish Strips w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 87 degrees, humid, with rain showers out today. After Breakfast I took Mom to Meijer, she wanted to buy some books. That’s Mom’s favorite thing to do at night, read books. Stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home did a load of laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Breaded Catfish Strips w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I’m having the remaining Louisiana Crawfish Company Breaded Catfish Strips that I ordered from the Louisiana Crawfish Company. These were a bit Spicy for Mom’s taste so I had the remainder for Dinner. Mom made herself a small Meatloaf for her Dinner.

 

The Catfish Strips come Seasoned and Breaded. All I do is prepare it!. I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added the Catfish Strips.

 

I fried the Catfish 9 minutes, flipping the strips over after 4 minutes. I cooked the Strips in 2 batches so not to overcrowd the skillet. When done I laid the Strips on a paper towel lined plate. The paper towel well absorb any extra Oil. The Catfish Strips are delicious! Seasoned just right with excellent Breading. The Breading does have a Cajun kick to it but nothing overpowering. We’ll purchase more of these after we run out from the Louisiana Crawfish Company.

 

To go with the Catfish Strips I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain 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 a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 81 degrees and mostly sunny out today. After Tea I had to go back to Meijer for a few items for Mom and to grab a few items I forgot to get there the other day. Back home got the cart out and did a little yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese.

I had no clue on Dinner tonight! Then while at Meijer I came across of Salmon Bites or Pieces. It was a small package of just odd and end pieces of Salmon they had leftover and they packaged them up. They looked good so I grabbed a package.To make the Salmon I’ll need; the Salmon Pieces, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

To prepare it; I first preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I seasoned the Salmon Fillet with 1/2 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, Grinder Sea Salt and Creole Seasoning. I put the Fillet in the pan; skin side down. Baked it for 13 minutes; until done and fork flaky. The Salmon came out perfect! Done just right with excellent seasoning. I had also bought a jar of Desert Pepper Peach Mango Salsa to put on the Salmon. Excellent Salsa!

To go with my Salmon I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain 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.

Seasoned Striped Bass w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Striped Bass w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 89 degrees and sunny out, low humidity. I spent some of the afternoon canning Green Beans that we had purchased at Jungle Jim’s yesterday. I love canning and stuff like this! It’s so interesting to learn a food preserving method that’s been around for so long. Later I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight Seasoned Striped Bass w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

While at Jungle Jim’s I came across fresh Striped Bass Fillets! I haven’t had this in many of a year. I’m not sure if any other place besides Jungle Jim’s huge and incredible Seafood Department would carry this or if ever have it available! To prepare the Bass I’ll need Salt, Ground Pepper, Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri, Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil. Before I seasoned I rinsed off the Bass and then cut the Bass in half.

 

To prepare it I seasoned the Bass. Next I lightly coat a frying pan with olive oil then placed the pan over a medium-high heat. Once the pan was hot placed the Fillets in the pan skin-side down. Cooked them for 3–4 minutes until the skin is nicely golden and crisp then carefully turn the fillets over to cook for 1 minute. And done!

 

This is so incredibly good! So fresh and flavorful. The Zatarain’s Breading is the best there is for all Fish and Seafood! Plus I have another Striped Bass Fillet in the freezer!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Bass I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain 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 a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Half and Half Diet Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Striped Bass
The striped bass, also called Atlantic striped bass, striper, linesider, rock or rockfish, is an anadromous perciform fish of the family Moronidae found primarily along the Atlantic coast of North America. It has also been widely introduced into inland recreational fisheries across the United States.
Sstriped bass tastes absolutely delicious. The flesh is white and flaky with enough fat to make it seem almost buttery (even when no butter has been added) but not so much as to make it seem oily. Moreover, the primary flavor is sweet and briny, without a hint of fishiness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZATARAIN’S SEASONED FISH FRI
A light, corn-based coating for seafood or vegetables. Simply roll in mix and fry to a light golden brown. Bring the authentic flavor of New Orleans to your kitchen.
* Seafood breading made with cornmeal, spices, garlic, onion and real lemon

Today’s Menu: Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

Had a light Breakfast to start my day, not much of an appetite in this hot weather. I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s 99 degrees and sunny out, thankfully low humidity. Got the cart out after Breakfast and got some yard work done before the extreme heat kicked in. Later did a load of laundry and cleaned all the counters in the kitchen with disinfectant wipes. Trying to stay ahead of the virus! So for dinner tonight I prepared some Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

Had no clue on what to have for Dinner tonight. I did know I wanted a lighter Dinner and one easy to prepare. I explored the depths of the stand up freezer and found a bag of Frozen Kroger Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp, so it’s Shrimp tonight. Easy to prepare, I just preheated the oven to 450 degrees. Grabbed a large baking sheet, lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I baked the Shrimp for 12 minutes, turning them over after 6 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve. These were fantastic, really nice size Shrimp and lightly breaded to give a nice crunch but not too much to make it mushy as some breading. Great product to have in the freezer. Served them with Heinz Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Louisiana Remoulade Sauce for dipping.

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac & Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Nice size, excellent Cheesy Mac. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Couldn’t get much easier of a Meal to prepare. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 66 Degrees outside today. Got out and got the last of lawn furniture out and cleaned. Then got the cart out of the shed and went around my yard and my neighbor’s yards and sprayed for weeds. A lot of people outside now are wearing the surgical masks. I’ll sure be glad when this virus passes! I hope all of you are staying healthy! So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I had the Catfish Fillets in the frezer. I laid the bag 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. 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 tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks and a Sprite Zero 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
