Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 71 degrees and mostly sunny out there today, another beautiful day! I had to be back at my Family Doctor at 1:15 this afternoon. My sugar came back a bit out of whack. He wants increase my Metformin to a higher dosage but I told him I wanted to retake the in 2 months to see if it’s better or the same. I think something was wrong with reading. We’ll see by the next testing. Back home,  got the cart out of the shed and did a few things around the yard. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast, always one of my favorite meals! As usual I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained Oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

Next, heat the Extra Light Olive Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some McCormick’s Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

I had a baked Russet Potato for a side with the Oysters. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

Finally I baked a slice of New York Bakery Texas Toast. Love having the trio of Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and a baked slice of Texas Toast! I always enjoy this Dinner. For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Breaded Clams w/ Cheddar Potato Bake

 

For Breakfast on this sunny morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 54 degrees and sunny out, another beautiful day! Got the 4 wheel cart out of the shed along with the leaf blower and rake. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then cleaned out the flower bed in the back of the house. Good to be out and active! For Dinner tonight it was Baked Breaded Clams w/ Cheddar Potato Bake.

 

To make tonight’s Dinner I’ll need the Microwave, the oven, and 1 small baking sheet. It doesn’t get much easier than that! So for the Clams I used a box of SeaPak Clam Strips. Preheat the oven on 425 degrees. I then lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with a shot of Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the Clam Strips in a single layer on the sheet and baked them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 7 minutes. These come out so delicious. Love these, very meaty strips, well seasoned, and easy to prepare. Had a side of McCormick’s Tarter Sauce, for dipping. Great product to have in the freezer for those days where you want something easy to prepare. Wow, such an easy Dinner to prepare, just bake and serve. Easy to prepare Dinners can also be a Delicious Dinner.

 

Then 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 Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

To start this Thursday morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Light rain, light snow and a high of 33 degrees. After I had my Tea I went to the Bank ATM, got gas, and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Well be getting a new neighbor. A lady that lived across the street moved out and another lady is moving in Saturday. For some reason that home sales every few years. We live in a good neighborhood here, everyone is really good people. So lucky! So for Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and 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 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 had opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them already cooking. I love these Green Beans. They always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread

 

 

To start this rainy morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Meijer Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then topped them off with Diced Ham. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The day started off with rain but had cleared up by noon, still windy and a high of 43 degrees. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread.

 

I bought the Catfish Nuggets from Meijer a while back 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 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. Then made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread, for Mom, using Martha White White Corn Meal. What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Dr. Pepper 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

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 45 degrees and Sunny out today. Right afterward I headed out to Kroger, about 6:30 this morning. I wanted to get there and get what I needed and get out before it gets crowded. But by 7:00 it was getting crowded, guess everyone had the same idea. Besides our groceries I got our neighbor a few items also. They were all cleaning items as both the husband and wife have the virus and are to stay at home for 2 weeks until the next test. Sure feel bad for them. Back home did some cleaning and then got outside for a bit and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

To start this Thursday morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another perfect Fall Day out today, 80 degrees and sunny. I had forgot some of Mom’s grocery list so I had to go back to Meijer. On the way back home I stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home did a few chores around the house and then got the cart out of the shed and took a ride around the neighborhood. It is so nice outside! For Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

Next, heat the Extra Light Olive Oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot. Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with some McCormick’s Tarter Sauce with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

I had a baked Russet Potato for a side with the Oysters. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally I baked a slice of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. Love having the trio of Fried Oysters, Baked Potato, and a baked slice of Texas Toast (Lite)! Really enjoyed Dinner. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Pot Roast, Carrots, Red Potatoes, and Cornbread

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Cloudy, light rain, and 49 degrees outside again. Our 3rd day in a row of this weather. The only good thing is with all the rain and wind of late the large tree across the street has finally lost all its leaves. Nothing going on outside so I did a few chores around the house. I measured one of the cabinets and I’m thinking about installing a Lazy Susan. I had to have Mom at her Family Doctor for a checkup and then I had to to Kroger and pick up a prescription for her. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Pot Roast along with Carrots, Red Potatoes, and Cornbread.

 

I purchased the Pot roast from Omaha Steaks and had it in the freezer. So I sat it in the fridge and let it thaw overnight. It’s fully cooked so you are just warming it up. To prepare it I preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Remove the roast and juice from package and placed in covered pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Wow, what a beautiful looking Roast!

 

 

It sliced up so tender with plenty of juices and seasoned perfectly! And the taste is spot on, just an excellent Roast, thank you Omaha Steaks!

 

To go with the Roast chopped up some Carrots that I had purchased from Meijer. I first washed the Carrots off in cold water. I then grabbed a large size sauce pan and filled it with water. Added Salt to the water and heated it on high. When the water came to a boil I added the sliced Carrots. I cooked them until fork tender. Drained the water and put the cooked Carrots in a bowl. Seasoned with a bit more Salt and they were ready.

 

I also prepared some Red Potatoes. I quartered and seasoned the Red Potatoes with Dill, Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder. I used a Cast Iron Skillet that I heated up on medium and added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I added the Red Potatoes and fried them for about 7 minutes and then put them in the oven, that was already at 400 degrees, and roasted them for about another 20 minutes until they were fork tender. Excellent way to prepare Red Potatoes!

 

Finally I also prepared a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For the Corn Bread I’m using Martha White White Corn Meal. The Cornbread goes perfect with anything! Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
