Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Scrambled 1 Egg, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I still struggled a bit with the Phantom Pains but nothing like the night before. I’ll sure be glad when these stop! Had a lot of rain overnight but the bad weather went around us. Some places had tornado touchdowns. Cooler out today, high of 54 degrees and partly cloudy. After Breakfast me and Mom went to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love going to this store, anything and more you want they have it! Back home not a lot going on. I’m still resting up from the Phantom Pains, it really took it out of me this time. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. Thanks again to my friends that keep bringing me the Grouper. I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were 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 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 


To go with Fish Sandwich I prepared a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup, one of my favorites. Just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to grab the morning papers this morning and its 41 degrees. Another beautiful Fall Day out again, 70 degrees and sunny! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer and while there went to their Lawn and Garden and picked up a couple Fall Flowers they had in stock. Back home home after Lunch I got the cart out and did a few things around the yard. Took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed this beautiful weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. It’s good to have friends that also own a house off the Florida Gulf Coast.

Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

To start this Sunday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg, an al fresco Chicken Sausage, and served it all on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Started a couple of loads of laundry for Mom after Breakfast. Cloudy with rain moving in later in the afternoon, high of 72 degrees. Went to Kroger for a couple of items after Breakfast and then by McDonald’s to pickup Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Not feeling up to par today, had a sinus headache all day. So I didn’t a whole lot today but relax. Hopefully better tomorrow! For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

While at Kroger earlier I picked up some more of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

 

 

Poured about 1 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning!

 

 

To go with the Shrimp, Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I baked a loaf of La Brea Bakery Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

McCormick Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix

Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix adds extra crunchiness to fried and baked foods. All ingredients have been specially selected to provide a superior coating that seals in natural juices for fish, seafood, poultry, meats and vegetables.

Ingredients
Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, And Folic Acid), Whey (Milk), Dextrose, And Soybean Oil.

Serving size
1/4 cup Mix (32g)mccormick-cracker-meal-seafood-fry-mix

All You Need
1/2 cup Cracker Meal
1 lb. Fish or Seafood*
Water or Milk
Vegetable Oil
Directions
1. POUR Cracker Meal into shallow dish or large plastic bag. Moisten fish, cut into serving-size pieces, or seafood with water or milk. Shake off excess.
2. COAT fish, several pieces at a time, evenly with Cracker Meal. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard any remaining Cracker Meal. Fry as directed below. Serve with McCormick® Cocktail Sauce or Tartar Sauce. Use the entire package to coat 4 lbs. fish or seafood.

*Best with tilapia, trout, catfish, shrimp, or scallops. Also try with shucked oysters and clams, or soft-shell crabs (pierce several times before coating).

Pan Fry: Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a large skillet; heat to 350°F on medium heat. Fry fish, in batches, 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels.

Oven Fry: Cover bottom of shallow baking pan with melted butter. Arrange fish or seafood in a single layer in pan; turn to coat with butter. Bake in preheated 425ºF oven 10 to 20 minutes until golden brown around edges and fish flakes easily with a fork.

Flavorful Tips:
• For a thicker coating, dip fish in a mixture of 3 tbsp. milk and 2 beaten eggs before coating with Cracker Meal.
• Coat boneless skinless chicken breast halves or chicken parts as directed. Bake in 400ºF oven 20 to 30 minutes for chicken breast halves or 45 to 50 minutes for chicken parts.
• Use Cracker Meal instead of bread crumbs when making meat loaf or meat balls.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Love this Breakfast! Outside a bit warmer, 83 degrees and mostly sunny. Did some light house work after Breakfast and then finished up some laundry for Mom.

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.

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

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Whole New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans and Harvest Apples

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Whole New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans and Harvest Apples

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausages and 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. After Breakfast went to Meijer, needed Bread and Buns. After Lunch went to see Dad for a bit. Back home all caught up on everything so it was an afternoon of NFL Football! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Whole New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans and Harvest Apples.

 

 

I picked up a couple of large Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department and had them in the freezer. I laid one of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. Just love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. I like using these large Chops, plenty leftover for Breakfast or Lunch the next day!

 

 

 

 

To prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the Chop. Let stand 20 minutes. I’ll be using a Cast Iron Skillet for the Chop. I love using Cast Iron Skillets, not only do the heat up evenly and retain that heat but you can also go from using it on the stove and right into the oven. So I start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in the Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Chop to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which gives a fantastic flavor and perfect browning to the Chop. The inside being so tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

For 1 side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. Just heat and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

Then I reheated the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans from last night’s Dinner, I love Beans!

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side dish. I prepared a package of Stouffer’s Harvest Apples, first time I’ve tried this one. An easily prepared way to get a delicious and savory Apple Dish. Easy to prepare; It comes in a microwavable tray. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, let cool and serve! Apples and Pork Chops are always go great together. This is a good one to have in the freezer! For Dessrt later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.

Today’s Menu: Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast, no appetite this morning. Did my morning workout, took a quick shower, and off to Walmart. I needed some Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, Copy Paper, and a few other things. Back home after Lunch, I went to see Dad. Still having good days and bad days, hope he can come home soon. Another pretty nice day out again. After getting back home I got the cart out for a ride around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight it’s a Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Florida! It’s good to have friends that also own a house off the Florida Gulf side, thank you Jim and Linda! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning.

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: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac & Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast on this cold March morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Fried Ocean Perch w Mac & Cheese 009Bread, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well they say if March comes in like a Lion it will go out like Lamb. So we got the Lion part covered so now we”l wait and see if it goes out like a Lamb! Mid 20’s this morning with very light snow flurries and still windy out. But they say by Sunday it will be 60 degrees again, hope they have it right! Did some house cleaning today and cleaned up around the outside a bit. I didn’t go see Dad today, he had some testing and 2 therapy sessions today. For my dinner tonight I prepared Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac & Cheese.

 

 

I picked up the Ocean Perch at Meijer yesterday. Really love the Meijer Seafood Department. Good selection, always Fried Ocean Perch w Mac & Cheese 001fresh and some good items on sale. To prepare them I preheated a medium size skillet, that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added Extra Virgin Olive, on medium heat. Rinsed the Perch with cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Lightly seasoned them with the McCormick Sea Salt. I then put them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag and added Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri, shaking the bag then until the Perch Fillets were coated. Added the Fillets to the heated skillet and fried them for 6 minutes. 3 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 
Ocean Perch
Ocean perch is mild tasting yet a bit sweet, with a moderately firm texture. The meat is lean, moist and flaky. Large ocean perch develop a coarse texture. Deep-skinned ocean perch with the fat line removed has the most delicate flavor. The flesh is white, though not as light as cod, and it turns opaque white when cooked.Whole fish may have bulging eyes and distended air bladders, which is a result of being brought up from great depths, not an indication of poor quality.

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I sprinkled with Sargento Shredded Sharp Cheddar crispy-battered-fish-fillets-w-cheddar-potato-bake-011Cheese. Then I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Finished up some laundry for Mom. After Lunch I went and spent the afternoon with Dad. He’s doing somewhat better but still a long ways off for coming back home. Back home I took a nap, just still not feeling up to par. Really didn’t feel like cooking but I still wanted a hot meal. So I took the easy way out, I prepared Crispy Battered Fish Fillets w/ Cheddar Potato Bake and Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread.

Couldn’t get more easy to prepare my Dinner tonight, used the microwave and the oven! I prepared Crispy Battered Fish Fillets w/ Cheddar Potato Bake and Baked Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For my Fish I used Gorton’s Crispy Battered Fish Fillets. Good Fish, already seasoned and battered. To prepare it I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. i used a small baking pan, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I baked the fillets for 25 minutes, flipping them over after 12 minutes. The fillets came out perfect! Nice size fillets and lave the seasoning and batter.

Then to go with my Fish 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. I also baked a quarter loaf of the La Brea Multi Grain Loaf Bread. Fish, Potatoes, and Baked Bread! I’ll take this easy prepared meal anytime. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookie and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
