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: Italian Style Chicken Breast Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas English Muffin, prepared 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Poached an Egg, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to cold morning. It was 12 degrees this morning. We had a high of 40 degrees and sunny out, so at least it’s warmer! After Breakfast  I did a load of laundry and cleaned the Kitchen today. Wiped down all the countertops, microwave, fridge, and stove with Lysol Wipes. Did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Italian Style Chicken Breast Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

For the Chicken I used the Perdue Perfect Portions Italian Style Chicken Breasts again. I really like using these Chicken Breasts, they come frozen or fresh and individually wrapped. You can grill them, bake them, or fry them which is what I did this time. I pan fried the Breast in Extra Light Olive Oil for about a total of 12 minutes all together, turning them once. Fried up perfectly and well seasoned with the hint of Italian Seasoning.

 

For the Cheese Cheese I’m using Dietz and Watson Swiss Cheese that I purchased from Meijer. For other toppings I used Kraft Light Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Kraft Fat Free Zesty Italian Dressing. For the Sub Buns I’ll be using Perfection Mini Sub Buns.

 

 

 

To make my Sandwich I heated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got one of the Mini Sub Buns and added the Mayo to the bottom half. Then added one of the Chicken Breasts and topped it with a slice of Swiss Cheese. Added the top half of the Sub Bun and put a light coating of the Italian Dressing on top of the Bun. Put the Sub onto a small baking sheet and baked it until the Swiss Cheese started to melt.

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries. The Chicken Mini Subs turned out perfect! For Dessert later a few slices of a Honeycrisp Apple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® BONELESS SKINLESS CHICKEN BREASTS, ITALIAN STYLE (1.5 LBS.)
Raised right in America – PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts are a popular kitchen staple you can feel great about feeding your family. Chicken Breasts are individually-wrapped to cook what you need and refrigerate or freeze the rest for later, marinated in a zesty Italian seasoning and perfectly sized to cook quickly and evenly in 10 minutes. These chicken breasts work great for a quick, weeknight chicken parmesan or Caesar salad!

COOKING and PREP
SKILLET: Lightly coat skillet with oil or cooking spray. Heat pan over medium-high heat, add breasts and brown 1 minute per side. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 6-9 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature, turning frequently.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. December 27th and it’s 70 degrees and cloudy outside! Another record high today. I did a couple of loads of laundry today. Then I finished putting away some Christmas Decorations. Then it was clean the fridge day. We had a few expired things in the fridge and freezer. So for Dinner tonight it’s a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I first fried the Bacon. I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fry as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise (my favorite Mayo) and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo. The Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is nice and creamy with excellent flavor, with a little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I baked them for 20 minutes and done. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

For Breakfast today I prepared a Breakfast Soft Tortilla. I used La Banderita Carb Counter Street Soft Tacos, 20 calories and 0 net carbs per Tortilla! For Ingredients I Scrambled an Egg, Crumbled 2 slices of Bacon, used Kraft 3 State Cheddar Off the Block Cheese and used Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. 42 degrees, mostly sunny, and windy out today.

Cast Iron Skillet Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Golden Fries

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Golden Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Sunny Side Up Egg, 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Baked Toast, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love Baked Toast but another one of those “I just don’t prepare it” items. You bake it instead of toasting it. Using a baking sheet, just butter your Bread and put it on the baking sheet and bake until it’s baked how you like. 50 degrees and partly cloudy out. After Breakfast I mad a Meijer Delivery order which was delivered at about 1:00. I got the cart out of the shed along with the rake and leaf blower. Cleaned up around the yard. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Baked Golden Fries.

 

I had the Steaks in the freezer so I sat them in the fridge to thaw all night. To prepare the Steak I preheated the oven to 400°. Then I took a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to, I heated it over medium high heat. When ready I added my Steaks to it. I cooked the Steaks 2 minutes on each side. I just wanted a light sear on both sides. Then I moved the Skillet on to the preheated Oven and Roasted it for about 4 minutes. Removed the Skillet from the Oven and placed the Steaks on a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting. The Tri -Tip Steak was super tender and juicy. I cooked it to medium rare and it came perfect! In the same skillet I also Sauteed some Mushrooms. Seasoned them with Ground Cumin, Dried Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Pepper.

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries, I haven’t had these in quite a while, I usually have the Crinkle Cut Fries. Served with sides of Heinz 57 Sauce and Daisy Light Sour Cream. I also had a couple of the Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


WILD IDEA BUFFALO – JILL’S SEA SALT RUBBED TRI-TIP STEAKS (2-4 OZ. STEAKS)

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 52 degrees and sunny out today. After my Tea I did a load of laundry. Then after Lunch I got the cart and rake out of the shed and raked the side and back yards. I love getting outside and doing yard work. I worked for a couple of different yard services during the Summertime. I really enjoyed the work, and still do! For Dinner tonight it’s a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Steak Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 28 degrees this morning. For the day it was sunny, windy, and a high of 42 degrees. After Mom had Breakfast I took her over to pick her car up from the auto shop. Back home I had to get the cart out of the shed. I first raked the backyard then I had put some more of the Rid Mole down. They are building in a field behind us and it’s driving all the moles into everyone’s backyards. I’m beat, relaxed the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight I heated up the leftovers from last night. We had more than enough Pulled Pork leftover for more Sandwiches. So it’s a Pork Boston Butt! Tonight it’s Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ Baked Fries. I’ve last night’s post for description and ingredients. Enjoy and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

I purchased the Pork Boston Butt Roast on sale at Meijer the other day. Meijer had them on sale and had a huge selection of them. I used the Crock Pot to prepare it. I’ll need the following; Pork Boston Butt Roast, 1/4 cup of Water, JB’s Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub, and JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce.

 

I applied the Rub all over Pork Shoulder and rubbed it in. Next I lined my Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Plastic Bag Liner and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. Love these Crock Pot Liners, makes for an easy cleanup! The Roast was just over 16 pounds and I really didn’t have room for it in the Fridge so I just went ahead and heated the Crock Pot up on low heat. When heated, I added the Roast. Covered and cooked on High for 1 hour. Turned it to Low and cooked 7 to 9 hours longer, until fall apart tender.

 

Removed the Roast with the Bear Claws into a bowl. A word about these Bear Claws; I love these things to remove meat and roasts from whatever you’re cooking it in on to a plate. Word of caution though, these things are very sharp so be careful with them. I used the bear Claws to Shred the Pork. I normally re add to the Crock Pot with BBQ Sauce but Mom just wanted to add the BBQ Sauce to her Sandwich so we did it that way. I needed the Crock Pot anyway to cook the other 1/2 of the Boston Butt. It was too big to cook it all at once so I cooked the 1/2 and took it out later tonight. We are using JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce for our BBQ Sauce. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, with extra BBQ Sauce on the side. Nothing but a winning Pork Butt Dish! So tender and seasoned just right with Rub and BBQ Sauce. A lot of leftovers for some delicious Sandwiches and Meals the rest of the week! I was so delicious!

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Steak Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 21 degrees this morning! For the day it was sunny and a high of 42 degrees. It was good to get Monday over with! I had to take Mom to the Dermatologist yesterday at 2:30. They found a couple of places on her face that took samples of to be Biopsied. He told her it was a type of Skin Cancer and she broke down. When he said Skin Cancer she thought of me and everything I went through. But he calmed her down and told her this type was not deadly but needed to be taken care of. She’s a lot better today, thank goodness. I got online and showed the type she had and how it would be dealt with. Stressful day yesterday. For Dinner tonight it’s a Pork Boston Butt! Tonight it’s Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 5 degrees and sunny out today, beautiful outside! After my Tea I headed off to Meijer for a friend of mine. She had knee surgery and she’s having trouble getting around. She wanted me to get a frozen Turkey for her and a small Boneless Ham for Thanksgiving. So I Picked those up for her and dropped them off and then on to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Back home I got some yard work done. The trees around the house and neighbors have finally lost all their leaves! Nice day to be out. For Dinner tonight I prepared a 4oz. Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries.

 

As always when it’s a Buffalo Burger I’m using the Wild Idea Buffalo Burger Patties. I’m having the 4 oz. Possible Burger. Same great taste and quality but these are 4 oz. Just love all the Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, seasoned my Burger with the Wild Idea Omnivore Salt. I then pan fried it about 3 minutes per side, and done. After I flipped the Burger I added a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Bun.

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served these 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 to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees and sunny out today. Beautiful out! We have had a problem with someone walking their dog in the mornings and letting the crap and not cleaning it up. Which is against the community rules, all owners must clean up after their pets. We finally caught who was doing it on my neighbor’s webcam. Great job Ben! Case solved. Spent most of the day outside, enjoying that sunshine. I helped a neighbor paint his shed. Being in my mobility cart, I did the lower half painting. It looked good after we were done. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fry as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise (my favorite Mayo) and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo. The Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is nice and creamy with excellent flavor, with a little kick to it!

 

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I baked them for 20 minutes and done. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
