Today’s Menu: Crab Cake Slider w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with a Scrambled Egg. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 61 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then it was house cleaning day, dusted and vacuumed. Then pulled the sweeper brushes out and cleaned them. I also repotted a plant for Mom. For dinner tonight it’s Crab Cake Slider w/ Baked Fries.

 

I haven’t had these in a while so I picked up a box of them on my last visit to Kroger. I’m using Kroger Private Selection Maryland Style Crab Cakes, my favorite! They come frozen and there’s 2 to a box. To prepare them just preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Nothing beats a fresh made Crab Cake, but these are too good to be frozen! They’re just the right size, about 3.5 ounces each, and full of flavor. Baked them for about 30 minutes and they were done. Served then on a Pepperidge Farm Wheat Slider Buns. Topped them with Louisiana Remoulade Dressing. This makes one delicious Slider! The taste of the Crab Meat and Remoulade Sauce is perfect together! If you want one flavorful Remoulade Sauce you have to try the LOUISIANA Remoulade Dressing. This sauce is incredible and is good on about anything you put it on!

 

Then I also Baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Chocolate Hot Fudge Topping.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 53 degrees and rain showers most of the day. I was down for a while today with a Sinus Headache. All due to this weather with the temps going up and down. I did do a load of laundry and wiped the Kitchen down with Lysol Wipes. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo from the other night. Below is the original post from the other night, left for description and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe all!

 

Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! Plus the leftovers are just as good if not better! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Snapple Diet Mango/Tea to drink.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe:

12 large-medium Oysters, shucked
1 tablespoon Flour
1 Eggs, beaten or 1/4 cup egg Beater’s

2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges, optional
Hot sauce, optional
Seafood Cocktail Sauce, optional

Preparation:

Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.

1 – Dip drained oysters in flour, then beaten eggs, shake off excess, and in panko crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: 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.

2 – Heat canola oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.

3 – Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters 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.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp Jambalaya

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 59 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I headed to Kroger and picked up a Prescription for Mom. Finished up some cleaning indoors. Got the cart out of the shed and rode around the yard and made a list of things I would need to fix up the yard. Then raked some leaves and limbs in the backyard. Then for Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp Jambalaya.

 

For the Shrimp I used a bag of Kroger Frozen Wild Caught Shrimp. I grabbed a skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Olive Oil Cooking Oil, and a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. I seasoned the Shrimp with a shake of Sea Salt and Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning. I heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet heated up I added the Shrimp. Cooked it a total of about 2 minutes and removed it from the heat. I put the semi cooked Shrimp into bowl and set aside until needed.

 

I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix (Mild) for my base for the Jambalaya.  I use Zatarain’s Products whenever I can, love the flavor and seasoning of all their products. To prepare it I just followed the easy instructions on the box. Mixed 2 1/2 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and brought it to a boil. Added the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix Returned it to a boil, and then reduced the heat to low. Covered and simmered for about 25 minutes, adding the Shrimp with 2 minutes of cooking time left. Continued cooking till most of the moisture had been absorbed, 2 minutes. Removed it from the heat and let it rest for about 5 minutes before I served it.

 

The Shrimp and Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix make a perfect pairing! I added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the mix also, nothing like a little heat to liven things up! This makes one delicious dish. For Dessert later a bowl Breyer’s Chocolate Carb Smart Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Sea Scallops w/ Pasta Roni – Butter and Garlic and Baked Italian Loaf Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. After Tea I went and picked up Breakfast at Wendy’s for Mom. Well Mom and her other friends from Church all went to Church today. First time she and her 3 friends have been since last November! They were so glad to go and to see each other again. That is the longest Mom and ever not been to Church in her life, and she really missed going. So I was very glad she’s going back finally. I spent most of the afternoon cleaning and trying to get my Covid Vaccine scheduled. Everything is booked solid right now. I’ll keep trying. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing Sea Scallops w/ Pasta Roni – Butter and Garlic and Baked Italian Loaf Bread.

First time using Sea Scallops with the Pasta Roni, I’ve always used Shrimp. So for the Scallops part of the dish I used Meijer Sea Scallops. I had purchased these last week. I already had washed them and had them in the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love Scallops and all Seafood. For the Scallops; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 1 pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned the Scallops with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Scallops to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Scallops once. And as the Scallops was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I’m having the Pasta Roni – Butter and Garlic. As all the Pasta Roni’s, it’s Delicious! It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Trop A Rocka Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Scallops………
Scallops are a great source of magnesium and potassium, which are both important for heart and brain health. They also promote blood vessel relaxation, help control blood pressure and enable better blood circulation.

Scallops are a naturally low carbohydrate food. A 100-gram serving of scallops provides just 137 calories and 6.3 grams of carbohydrates. Keep in mind, however, that serving size can vary. If scallops are added to a hearty rice dish with several different ingredients, for example, you’re likely to consume fewer of them.

The scallop size can also vary. According to government sources, an average serving size of scallops is about 3.5 ounces (100 grams), which can include 4 to 5 large scallops, 9 to 12 medium scallops or 15 to 20 small scallops.

 

 

 


PASTA RONI BUTTER and GARLIC FLAVOR
Angel hair pasta in a creamy butter and garlic sauce with other natural flavors
Everything’s better with buttery flavor. And garlic, did we mention garlic?

What You’ll Do
1 – In a medium saucepan bring water, milk and butter or margarine to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil.
2 – Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently.
3 – Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken.

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: Long John Silver’s – Battered Cod and Shrimp

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Get the sunglasses out for today, sunny and 60 degrees! Not a bad day out there, but still very windy. After my Tea it was off to Meijer and then on to Kroger. Here lately Meijer hasn’t been stocked real good. So I had to go to Kroger for quite a few items today. Stopped and got my car washed also. I may have to buy a car here shortly. My 95 Ford Taurus is on it’s final miles. Last time I had the oil changed I was told that the rust was about to take under side over. Time for a change. I didn’t feel like cooking, very tired. So the Kitchen was closed today Mom wanted Long John Silver’s tonight!

 

Mom wanted Long John Silver’s tonight so that’s what we are having. We each had a 2 Piece Battered Cod and split a side of 3 Shrimp. Mom also had a side of Cole Slaw and Hush Puppies. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Of course it is. Not only is it more delicious than any other meat, it’s also better for the environment. We sustainably-source our seafood so we can serve it proudly and so you can enjoy eating it proudly too. Wild-caught Alaska Pollock. From Alaska waters!

Cod and Salmon from the icy waters of the North Pacific! Clams from coastal Atlantic waters! And it all goes from the boats to our restaurants to your sea-loving smile. Do we do it all sustainably while supporting the fishermen and their families? Fish Yeah we do!

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, heated up a few slices of Boar’s Head Thick Cut Bacon, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 44 degrees and partly cloudy out. Not quite as nice as our 68 degrees yesterday! They delivered a new Hoveround Mobility Chair for me today. I still have my last one and it’s an excellent chair but under Medicare law they will not pay for repairs for a chair that’s 5 years old. Instead they buy a new one. It makes no sense to me, but who am I! I do appreciate it though but I would think it would save Medicare money to make repairs than buy a new one. The chair I had before that I got 10 years ago is still running! Oh well! For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I left the original post from a night ago for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

It’s Gumbo time! And Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continue to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also. Then for Dessert/Snack later I had a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 30 degrees and partly sunny for the first start of the day. Clouds moved in and waiting to see how the next snow is coming in. We could get 3-4 inches or as less as a 1/2 inch. Hopefully the 1/2 route. We have 8-10 inches still on the ground. i finally was able to get out a bit this afternoon! Went to Kroger this afternoon and stopped by the Bank. Been a rough couple of days. The fridge was leaking so we had to shut the water off, no ice cubes now. The water backed up to a corner of the living room carpet, little to no damage hopefully. And then the phone rang about 7:30 this morning and friend of mine called and told me a very good and longtime friend of ours passed away this morning. He had been fighting Cancer for about 5 months. So it’s been a rough one. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. Take Care and Stay Safe everyone!

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.
