Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 83 degrees out today. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer for a few items and on the way back stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I got the cart out and did some yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus.

 

 

 

I purchased a package of North Atlantic Salmon from Meijer earlier in the day. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Put the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

 

 

 

 

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus, 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve. Comes out tender and delicious. I like the combo of Baked Salmon and Roasted Asparagus! For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam, love that stuff! Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 80 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom and then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Very high Pollen count out so I was inside most of the day. Got the leaf blower out early evening and cleaned off the deck and drive way areas. Spent the the afternoon watching College Football. 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 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some 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 it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. Just love this skillet meal! 83 degrees and partly cloudy out, no humidity! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast and then ran the vacuum. After Lunch I got the cart out and raked the front yard again. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus.

Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A beautiful day out today, 79 degrees and sunny! I had to buy new batteries for my cart I keep in the shed. So today I installed the new batteries and it was job! Had to remove the seat to get to everything. Finally got them changed but it was tough. Took a ride around the neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful weather. For Dinner tonight its a Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to be at my family Doctor to discuss the results of my test that showed I have severe Diabetic Neuropathy. I think I may have the test redone. I’m just not showing the signs that the tests says I should be showing, or at least not showing right now. Either way it’s just something new I have to deal with if I do have the damage. More to come. Anyway after I left the doctor’s I picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Then I went and got her car washed and filled up with gas. Next I went to Meijer for a few items. It’s a beautiful Spring Day out there today! 74 degrees and Sunny! For Dinner tonight I prepared Smoked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It may be Spring but it feels like Winter out there! It was 24 degrees and a wind chill in the teens! Had a high of 48 degrees and mostly sunny. Went to Lowe’s and checked out some new outdoor chairs for Mom. She’s been wanting some new ones so Lowe’s had some on sale. They were okay but I’m going to look around some more. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and drive way areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning it was Ham and Eggs. I had purchased a small Kentucky Artisan Smoked Ham at Meijer the other day. So I sliced several pieces up and fried them in a small skillet until heated through. Then in another skillet I fried a Sunny Side Up Egg. Then I toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good Breakfast to start to a cold morning. Around 12 degrees this morning then into low 30’s with freezing rain and snow moving in later in the day. I got the snow shovel and a bag of Salt out of the shed to use for later. Not much else going on today. Did a few chores around the house then got caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

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

 

 

 

I had a Scrambled Egg and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to be at the Dentist at 8:45 yesterday morning. I dread going to a Dentist more than anything but I’ve got a bad tooth and later I need more work done. I also had to go back to the family Doctor the day before and he increased my Metformin from 1 to 2 pills daily. So much stress lately he wanted me to increase for 3 months. After that we’ll do the checks again. He thinks that it’s all the stress I’ve been having for my elevated blood work. Another wait and see. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots.

 


I purchased a package of North Atlantic Salmon from Meijer and had it in the freezer. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Lined the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 8 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

 

 

I really enjoy the combo of Rice or Grain and Carrots with Salmon 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 Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Minute Multi-Grain Medley

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 Minute Multi Grain Medley minutes. The four grains include:

* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* 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. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.
