Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Red Potatoes/Asparagus and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a couple of Eggo Whole Grain Eggo’s and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not bad at all this morning at 33 degrees. For the day we had a high of 58 degrees and sunny! After Breakfast I went to Meijer and stopped and had the Car Washed. Back at home got a few things done in and around the house taken care of. For Dinner tonight, what i was planning to have last night. I prepared a Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Red Potatoes/Asparagus and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 

I purchased the fresh Atlantic Salmon from the Kroger Seafood Department. I had it in the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I’m going to prepare it using the Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon recipe. I haven’t had Salmon or used this recipe in a while. To make I’ll need; Salmon Fillets (4 ounces each), 4 teaspoons Dijon Mustard, 4 teaspoons Honey, 2 slices Whole Grain Bread (torn into pieces), 3 tablespoons finely chopped Walnuts, 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme. To prepare it; Start by preheating the oven to 400°. Place the Salmon on a baking sheet coated with Pam cooking spray. Mix the Mustard and Honey; brush over the Salmon. Next I placed the Bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in Walnuts, Olive Oil and Thyme; press it onto the Salmon Fillet.

 


Bake 12-15 minutes or topping is lightly browned and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. The Salmon came out perfect, moist and delicious. The Walnut Crust is perfect for the Salmon. The Walnuts, Honey, Dijon Mustard, Thyme, and fresh Bread Crumbs all combine perfectly. Love this recipe.

 

 

 

 

For a side I prepared a Red Potato and Cut Asparagus Skillet. I’ll need A bag of Petite Red Potatoes, a small bunch of Asparagus, Ground Garlic Salt, Dried Parsley, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

 

I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet and sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil. Preheated the Skillet on medium heat. Next I quartered the Red Potatoes, putting them in a large bowl. Seasoned them with the Garlic salt, Dried Parsley, Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil. Mixed them with the Seasoning until the Potatoes were Seasoned on all sides. I then added them to the preheated Cast Iron Skillet.

 

 

 

As the Potatoes were cooking I got the Asparagus ready. I kept the Asparagus bundled up and washed them off in cold water. Shook them dry and trimmed them. i cut the Spears into 3 pieces. Then lightly seasoned them with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then added them to the Skillet of Red Potatoes. Stirred until mixed with the Potatoes and continued cooking until done.

 

 

 

 

The Red Potato and Asparagus Skillet came out delicious. Good Seasoning and the two worked great with each other. I also baked a loaf of Multi Grain Bread. I tried a new kind that I picked up at the Meijer Bakery. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good way to start off a cold morning. How cold is it you ask, 18 degrees! Wasted no time going out to grab the morning papers! Partly cloudy and 33 degrees for a high. Cleaned the oven and did some cleaning and straightening up of all the shelves and drawers in the Kitchen. Wish I could afford new cabinets but it’s just not in the budget. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I purchased a package of North Atlantic Salmon, there was 2 small Fillets in the package. With the Fillets being small I prepared both of them for Dinner tonight. To make them I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on them and then seasoned them. Lined the 2 Fillets in the pan and baked them. They were small Fillets so I only had to bake them for 8 minutes and they were done. They may be small but that was some excellent Salmon! Nicely Seasoned and flakey.

 

 

For one side to go with the Salmon I prepared a packet of the Minute Rice – Multi-Grain Medley.First time I’ve prepared this in a while. It has Brown Rice, Thai red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! The box contains 4 – 2 Serving Packets and easy to prepare. Combine water and the contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with fork and serve! Easy to prepare and makes one excellent side dish.

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan , bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Atlantic Salmon
The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.

* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices.

Today’s Menu: Baked Creole Salmon w/ Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of Cheerios’ and the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, Outside another nice day, 83 degrees, mostly sunny, but a bit more humid. Right after Breakfast I headed to Meijer, needed quite a few items. Back at home I took Mom’s Car up and had it washed and then took my car up and had it washed. Next stopped by the post office and mailed some letters and on the ATM and stopped and got gas. Nice day out today. For Dinner tonight something new, Baked Creole Salmon w/ Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes.

 

 

 

Seen these dishes being made on the new Gordon Ramsay show, the “F” Word. These looked so good I had to try them. My recipes aren’t exact as the originals but both turned out delicious! So here’s my version of Creole Salmon w/ Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

I had stopped by Meijer yesterday to pick up the ingredients for my Dinner tonight. I’m using a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet. I had purchased a 1/2 of a huge fillet that I cut into 4 smaller fillets. I froze 3 and kept one out for my Dinner tonight. To make the Salmon I’ll need; 1 Salmon Fillet, McCormick Griner Sea Salt, Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and Dried Thyme. 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. I seasoned the Salmon  Fillet with the Thyme, Sea Salt and Creole Seasoning. I put the Fillet in the pan; skin side down. Baked it for 13 minutes; until done and fork flakey. The Salmon came out perfect! Done just right with excellent seasoning.

 

 

 

 

Now for the Mustard Greens and Baby Red Potatoes. I’ll need the following;Baby Red Potatoes, Mustard Greens (1 bunch), 1 Clove Garlic (minced), Lemon Juice, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Parsley (chopped)

 

 

 

I’ll be using Baby Red Potatoes and 1 bunch of Mustard Greens. I filled a large pot 1/2 way with water, salted it, and brought it to a boil. Added the Potatoes, reduced the heat and until almost tender. Drained the water and laid the Potatoes on the cutting board. I then used the bottom of a coffee cup and lightly smashed the Potatoes. Next I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added the Potatoes. After 3 minutes I added a 1//2 Clove Garlic. In another 2 minutes I added a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, to brown the Potatoes, and seasoned with McCormick Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

As the Butter was melted I washed my Mustard Greens and patted dry with a paper towel. I then added the Mustard Greens to the skillet. I cooked until it was wilted and tender. Be careful not overcook the Greens. Removed everything to a bowl; seasoned it with a splash of Lemon and chopped Parsley. This makes one nice side dish! I love Potatoes anyway but this is really a great way to prepare the Potatoes and the Mustard Greens, This is the first time I’ve had Mustard Greens in a very long time. The Greens came out tender and worked perfectly with the Red Potatoes. Along with the Salmon this turned out to be one delicious Dinner! For Dessert later a Dole No Sugar Added Diced Peach Cup.

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

 

 

 

Started my morning off with a light Breakfast of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well the rain has finally passed but it’s real windy out, in the 50’s again. Finished up cleaning the house. After Lunch headed over to spend the afternoon with Dad. He looked better than he did the other day. Still up in the air weather he’ll make it home or not. Just hope for the best. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

Ready for the skillet!

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.

 

 

 

Golden Brown!

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 Virgin 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 also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 
For Breakfast this morning it was Hash Browns, Smoked Turkey Sausage, Toast, and Decaf Green Tea. I had went tobaked-salmon-w-wild-and-long-grain-rice-and-whole-baby-carrots-007 Meijer and they finally had the Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns back in stock! It had been a few weeks since any store had them in stock. So I prepared the Hash Browns and then I prepared a 1/2 Sausage link of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. Added a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, and that’s a Breakfast! Big change in the weather again! 50 degrees for a high with rain on and off all day, beats in the teens and snow! So with not a lot going on outside I did some cleaning on the inside. I cleaned and straightened the pantry and the the freezer and refrigerator. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 
I had purchased the Salmon Fillet last week from Meijer and had it in the freezer. Grabbed the fillet out of the freezerBaked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 001 and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. I just love all Fish and Seafood.

Potato and Ham Skillet
For Breakfast Mom and Dad wanted some of the Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped everything with a Sunny Side Egg and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. Just love starting off the day with a skillet meal!

 

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 010
After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger up the road. I need Bread and a few other things. Stopped for gas on the way back home. Did some light cleaning in and around the house. Then after Lunch I had to drive to Cincinnati to where Dad gets his home oxygen from. I had to pick up some new oxygen lines. They have to be changed every 60 days or so due to residue build up in the lines leading from the oxygen machine. There’s always so much traffic in the part of Cincinnati I had to go to. Very glad to get back home. It was cool morning, about 40 degrees. We had a high of 63 degrees and partly cloudy skies. For dinner tonight its Baked Salmon w/ Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots.

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

 

 
I had a light Breakfast of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Salmon Patties Mac and Cheese 006It’s a beautiful morning out there today, sunny and 55 degrees! Another gorgeous day out there, plenty of sunshine and a high around 81 degrees with no humidity. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom. Then headed outdoors to do some work. I got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. Then got the cart out and pulled some weeds out of the flower beds. Then got the trusty hammer, nails, and saw out and did some repairs to the side of the shed. Things sure would be a lot easier to do if I wasn’t in a wheel chair, or cart, but thankful I can get around in either to get things done. Nice day to be out! For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 017
For breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did the morning workout and showered. Then off to Meijer, they had a few items that went on a 2 day sale starting today. Pork Tenderloin Roasts, Buy 1 get one free. Along with some other items, good sale! Hot and very, very humid out. Man I can’t stand this high humidity! Back home did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I tried a new recipe, Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon. I prepared a Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced Carrots.

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 001
I came across this recipe, Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon, on an McCormick Recipe email and couldn’t wait to give it a try! I’ll need the following to make the dish; 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon McCormick® Ground Ginger, 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder, 1 green onion (chopped), and 1 pound salmon fillets.

 

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 006
I purchased the Salmon at Meijer Seafood Department earlier today. To prepare the salmon I first rinsed it off under cold water and patted dry with paper towel and set aside. Next mixed the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic powder and green onion in small bowl. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Placed the salmon in large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerated for 30 minutes. Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Removed the salmon from marinade. Discarded the remaining marinade.

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 010
Baked the salmon for 11 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting the fillet 1/2 way through the baking time with the reserved marinade. The salmon came out perfect, and what flavor! The orange juice, soy sauce, and honey combine for a perfect marinade. Then you get the taste of the ginger and garlic powder, outstanding! A for sure Keeper Recipe! I baked my salmon where the original recipe calls for grilling it. The original recipe and web link are at the end of the post.

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 007
For one side dish I prepared some Sugar Snap Peas, I had picked these up at Kroger the day before.They come packaged fresh. To prepare them I heated 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Olive Oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Added the Sugar Snap Peas, tossing occasionally for 5 to 6 minutes, until the Sugar Snap Peas were crisp tender.

 

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 009
Then for a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Another canned Vegetable that’s as good as fresh. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer until heated through. I also baked a can of Pillsbury Breadsticks. Still searching for a replacement for the Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread in which Pillsbury no longer makes, why no clue it was their best! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookie and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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

 

Salmon Patties Mac and Cheese 006

Skipped Breakfast this morning, just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’ve had a headache on and off since yesterday. My sinuses having been driving me crazy! Really did,’t do a lot today but try to get some sleep. I had a Dinner planned out but just wasn’t in the mood to cook or a big meal. Mom had made some Salmon Patties so I took the leftovers and made my own. For dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac & Cheese.

 

 

 

Ready for the skillet!

Ready for the skillet!

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. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up!

 

 

 

 

 

Salmon Patties Golden Brown

I’m using a Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Egg Beater’s, Old Bay Seasoning, Dried Parsley, and Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat 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 Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. They came out golden brown and delicious, Love Salmon Patties!

 

 

 

Fried Ocean Perch w Mac & Cheese 002

For one side I heated up a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Finally a great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. No dessert tonight.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

Diced Potatoes, Ham, and Egg 003

For Breakfast I made everyone Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped everything with a Sunny Side Egg and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. Just love starting off the day with a skillet meal!

 

 

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 010

We are having a rough go with dad back home from rehab. He should have been kept longer with more therapy. He’s still real weak and I believe his dementia is getting worse. I hope it will work out. Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom and picked up around the house. For dinner tonight its Baked Salmon w/ Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 001

I had the Salmon Fillet in the freezer. Grabbed a fillet out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it, I rinsed it off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. I just love all Fish and Seafood.

 

 

Whole Baby Carrots
For one side I prepared a Baked Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.
