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.

 

 

 

 

I came across a new item while at Meijer, Latitude 45 Smoke Roasted Atlantic Salmon. So I’ll be using this for the first time along with a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Salmon comes in a sealed plastic container. I sampled it at Meijer and it was Love after one taste! I bought a couple of containers of it, with more to come! It’s all ready, just open and serve. Has such a delicious and fresh taste to it, huge fan already!

 

 

 

 

 

 


For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a micowavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one my favorites from the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with the Smoked Salmon.

 

 

 

 

To serve I made a bed of the Rice and topped it with the Smoked Salmon. I love this dish! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Coll Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

To start this Tuesday off I had one of favorites, French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, 1/2 cup of 2% Milk, 1 medium Egg, Ground Nut Meg, Ground Cinnamon, and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Mix the Milk, Egg and Spices together in a bowl and dip the Bread in mixture. Fry until each side is golden brown. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Just fry for 8 minutes and done. For the Syrup topping I used Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Oh how I love French Toast! It’s 50 degrees and partly sunny out today. Ran a couple of errands and stopped by Meijer for a few items. Back home I was all caught up on everything and just took it easy. For Dinner tonight its Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Tilapia while at Meijer earlier. I purchased 2 big and beautiful fillets of the Tilapia, having 1 for Dinner and froze the other one. I also bought a Red Snapper Fillet. So I had already rinsed the fillet in cold water and had it in plastic bag the fridge. To prepare it I’ll need; the Tilapia, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. To start I heated Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet was ready I cooked the Tilapia until Golden Brown, about 3 minutes per side. I had not had Tilapia in a while and it tasted great! Moist with that excellent Zatarain’s Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

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. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not as hot today, had a high of 83 degrees. Finished painting in the shed and moved a few things around. That was about it for the day. I’m dealing with my allergies and sinuses today. For Dinner tonight Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.
 

 

 

I’m trying another new item for Dinner tonight, Aqua Star Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Mango Salsa. I came across this one at the local Kroger Frozen Seafood. It looked great and the description sounded delicious so why not give it a try! It comes frozen and there is 2 Tilapia Fillets in the package. To prepare it you can Boil the package, Microwave, or Bake the fillets. I chose to Bake them.

 

 

 

 

So to prepare it; I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Then sprayed it with Pam w/Olive Oil Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I removed the Tilapia from the packaging and lined the 2 fillets up on the pan. With the oven heated I baked the fillets. I’ll be baking them for 17 minutes. As the Tilapia was baking I got the Mango Salsa package that came with the Fish. I just ran the package under cold water until it was thawed. I took the Tilapia out and they looked delicious!

 

 

 

I added the Mano Salsa across the tops of the Fillets. The Fillets were fork tender and flaked real easy. The Seasoning was spot on, nice mild heat, and the Mango Salsa worked perfect with the Tilapia. I’ll purchase this again, easy to prepare and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

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. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. Very good Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Mini Cone Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

Aqua Star Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Mango Salsa

Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Whole Baby Carrots, and Light Texas Toast

Today’s Menu: Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Whole Baby Carrots, and Light Texas Toast

 

 

 

For Breakfast this rainy morning I prepared some al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its raining again, big shocker! We have a high of 62 degrees and heavy rain at times. Not much to do so it was house cleaning today. Dusted and vacuumed then cleaned the refrigerator. For Dinner tonight I tried a fish I had never tried before, Rockfish. Tonight its Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Whole Baby Carrots, and Light Texas Toast.

 

 

 

I was at Meijer yesterday to pick up a few items and going by the Seafood Department and noticed they had Rockfish Fillets in the display case. I had heard of Rockfish but never I had tried it, until now. Growing up there was a creek that ran across the street and we would go fishing and catch a Fish we called Rockfish. But this (Ocean) Rockfish is totally different. I was told it has a taste similar to Snapper, which I love. The Fillets cost lass than 1/2 than what you pay for Snapper. So I picked up a couple of Fillets to try it out. I’ll be cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet and will need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley along with Zatarain’s Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

To prepare it; I first washed and cleaned the Fillets in cold water. Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel. Seasoned on both sides with the Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri Mix.

 

 

 

 

 

Next heated a Cast-Iron Skillet over high heat. When the Pan is hot, added the Extra Light Olive Oil. Place the fillets in the pan, skin side down. Press down gently on the fillets with a spatula for about 20 seconds to prevent curling. Lower heat to medium and let cook until the fish is golden and caramelized around edges, about 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully flip fillets and until golden all over and cooked through, 45 to 90 seconds more.

 

 

 

The Rockfish fried up to a perfect Golden Brown. It does have a taste similar to Snapper. Really a delicious meaty version of Snapper, and costs a lot less! Really enjoyed it and will purchase more of it. Mom, who isn’t a huge Fish Lover, really liked them.

 

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a packet of Microwavable Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Rice. 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. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready.

 

 

 

 


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. I also baked a loaf of Bake House RiverRoad Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Rockfish – Sebastes

Sebastes is a genus of fish in the family Sebastidae (though some include this in Scorpaenidae), most of which have the common name of rockfish. A few are called ocean perch, sea perch or redfish instead. Most of the Sebastes species live in the north Pacific, although two (Sebastes capensis and Sebastes oculatus) live in the south Pacific/Atlantic and four (Sebastes fasciatus, Sebastes mentella, Sebastes norvegicus and Sebastes viviparus) live in the north Atlantic. The coast off South California is the area of highest rockfish diversity, with 56 species living in the Southern California Bight.

Rockfish are an important sport and commercial fish, and many species have been overfished. As a result, seasons are tightly controlled in many areas. Sebastes are sometimes fraudulently substituted for the more expensive northern red snapper.

Rockfish has a sweet, mild flavor, with a flaky, medium-firm texture. It is best baked, sautéed, broiled or poached. Since the flesh tends to flake easily, it is not the best fish for grilling. Try it with a little lemon to bring out the sweet flavor without overpowering.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Then I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns along with frying up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Lot of rain overnight, a couple of thunderstorms had the night lit up. Mostly cloudy today high in the 70’s. After Breakfast did a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch went up to see Dad for a while at rehab. He’s been doing a lot better of late. Back home not a lot going on so I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight its Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 


I had purchased a couple of small Walleye Fillets at Meijer yesterday and had them in the fridge. To prepare them I rinsed them off in cold water and patted them dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

To go with the Walleye I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Whole Grain Brown Rice. To prepare it just microwave. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat for 90 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy.

 

 

 

 

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. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

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. 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.

Today’s Menu: Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice

 
Went outside last night about 10:00 and was able to watch several Fireworks Shows around the area. A lot of the Firework Shows were moved up because of heavy rain prediction for the 4th of July (Monday). Mom went to ChurchSweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 013 this morning and I stayed home to keep an eye on Dad and it was house cleaning day today. I made some Pancakes for Breakfast this morning. Made them with Bisquick Heart Smart. Also fried up 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon. After Lunch went over to see a friend of mine, he had bought a new car and he wanted me to stop by and check it out. Amazing what the new cars are equipped with now! For dinner tonight staying with the Chicken. So last night it Chicken and Fries and tonight It’s Chicken in a different way, tonight it’s Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice.

 

 

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 002

Came across a new item at Meijer yesterday and couldn’t wait to give it a try! Tonight I’m trying the new Johnsonville Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs. Meijer had 3 different kinds but I wanted to give the Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs first. You can grill them or bake them, so I’m baking mine. Our grill died and I haven’t replaced it. So the Kabobs come fresh and in a sealed package of 4 seasoned and skewered Kabobs.

 

 

 

 

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 004
To prepare them I preheated the oven to 425°F. Placed the Kabobs on foil-lined backing pan coated with Pam Cooking Spray. Baked for 15 minutes, turning once. And done! How easy is this, a one pan cleanup. Johnsonville has it’s self another winning dish! The Chicken is moist and so tender with nice seasoning. The easiest Kabob I’ve ever prepared! These would be great for parties or grilling out for the family. Looking forward to trying the other types.

 

 

 

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 007
To go with the Kabobs I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Whole Grain Brown Rice. To prepare it just microwave. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat for 90 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy.

 

 

 

 

I wanted something else to go with everything, something light and fresh. So I went with a Fruit Medley. So out of the pantry I grabbed a can of Del Monte Diced Mango and a can of Dole Pineapple Chunks. I then I chopped up someSweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs w Whole Grain Brown Rice 001 Cilantro. I opened the cans of Mango and Pineapples up and drained the Juice from each one in separate bowl. I’m going to use juices to flavor the dish. Place the Mango, Pineapple, and Cilantro in a mixing bowl. Stir in the Juice of 1 of the fruits or combinations of all the Juices, no certain amount just adjust it to your own tastes. Stir, and cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. Turned out great, it hit the spot! Fresh and Fruity, nice side. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

After Breakfast I took Mom up to a battery store not far from here. She needed a new watch battery. From there stopped by the bank for her and back home. This afternoon Mom went over to see Dad and I had to stay home and wait for the delivery of Dad’s new lift chair we bought him. It arrived later in the afternoon, it’s really a nice chair and will help him to get up from the sitting position. Now we just have to get him strong enough to come back home! For Dinner tonight something new – Kahiki General Tso’s Chicken. I prepared General Tso’s Chicken w/ Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

General Tso’s Chicken w Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots 002
While at Meijer last week I came across some Kahiki General Tso’s Chicken in the frozen food section. It looked and sounded good plus there was 340 calories and 32 net carbs in it, which isn’t bad at all for General Tso’s Chicken. So I bought a bag of it and had it in the freezer.

 

 

 

 
To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Removed the Sauce Pouch and saGeneral Tso’s Chicken w Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots 003t in a bowl of hot water to thaw. Next I took a baking sheet and lined it with foil and sprayed Pam on it. I placed the Chicken evenly on the sheet and baked them for 20 minutes turning them after 10 minutes. Internal temperature of Chicken was 165 degrees, used an instant read thermometer. Removed it from the oven and let it stand 1 minute before serving. I drizzled the thawed sauce across the pieces and served. I found a winner here! Nice size pieces of Chicken, nice seasoning, and excellent sauce! The Sauce had some nice heat to it, not overpowering. I’ll have to keep a bag in the freezer for sure.

 

 

Whole Baby Carrots
For one side dish I microwaved some Uncle Ben’s Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice. It comes in a single serving microwavable container. Just heat for 45 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy. I also heated up a can of Kroger Whole Baby Carrots. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod 009
Started my morning off with a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we ended up with 4 new inches of snow. Just as the snow we had was starting to melt we got hit again. The main roads are all clear but the side roads are still slick. I needed to go to the bank but all are closed today for President’s Day today. So I just did a few things around the house and on the computer. For dinner tonight I prepared a Lemon-Parsley Baked Cod w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice, Sliced Carrots, and Whole Grain Bread.

Today’s Menu: Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice

 

 

After a light breakfast I took Mom up to Kroger so she could pick up a few items and while there they had Coffee Makers on sale so I picked one up for Mom and Dad for Christmas. They’ve needed a new for a long time. I’ve never Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 010been a Coffee drinker, Green Tea is about it. I also stopped by McDonald’s so she could pick their Breakfast up. Outside it was in the 50’s and cloudy early, as day went on rain moved in. We have cooler weather moving in for the weekend they say, high in the 30’s Saturday. The hospital called and I going Tuesday morning for my finger surgery. Shouldn’t been in there but about 20 minutes. I’m having the cyst removed and they have to do it at the Hospital due to possible infection. Anyway not much else going on today. For dinner tonight something new, I prepared Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice.

 

 
Wanted something different tonight so it’s Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Water Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 002Chestnuts, and White Rice. I had seen the Sweet and Sour Meatballs on an episode of Pioneer Woman so I thought I would do a version of that for dinner. Wasn’t sure what to have with it so I raided the pantry and came out with the Pineapple, Water Chestnuts, and White Rice. I had the Sugar Snap Peas in a container in the fridge. I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs, La Choy Sweet Sour Sauce, Kroger fresh Sugar Snap Peas, 1 can of Dole Pineapple Tidbits, 1 can of Sliced water Chestnuts, and Uncle Ben’s White Rice.

 

 

Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 003
To prepare the Meatballs; I heated up a medium size skillet on medium heat (sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray). Added the Turkey Meatballs. The meatballs are precooked so all you have to do is reheat them. So I added then to the skillet and topped them with La Choy Sweet Sour Sauce. I let them simmer, turning them several times, for 15 minutes; until they were heated through. Se the skillet aside, putting the lid on the skillet.

 

 

Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 005
I then took another medium size skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Heated this on medium heat also. As the skillet was heating I opened up the Sliced Water Chestnuts, draining the can of all the liquid. I then opened up the can of Dole Pineapple Tidbits, I drained the juice from the can and reserving it in a small bowl. The Sugar Snap Peas come in a sealed plastic container, just cut it open and gave the Peas a quick wash with water.

 

 
So the skillet is heated and I first add the Water Chestnuts, they take the longest to get done. Cooked them for aboutSweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 006 10 minutes, stirring often. I then added Sugar Snap Peas, these don’t take long at all. Stirring the Peas and Chestnuts together. I turned the heat down to low and added the Pineapple Tidbits and the reserved Pineapple Juice. The amount of juice you add is up to your preference. I added about 1/4 of the juice. Continued cooking for another 5 minutes; turned the heat off and put the lid on the skillet. To prepare the Uncle Ben’s White Rice is the easy part. It comes in a microwavable package; just heat for 90 seconds and serve! I love Uncle Ben’s Rice, I don’t care if you boil it or microwave it always turns out perfect.

 

 
So to serve this, in a bowl, I made a bed of the White Rice. Topped it with Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, and Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs w Sugar Snap Peas, Pineapple, Wa 011Pineapple Tidbits. The topped that with the Turkey Meatballs, and chow down! This made one delicious dish! The Turkey Meatballs were incredible. The Meatballs absorbed all that Sweet and Sour Sauce and just made the Meatballs pop with flavor. Then you have a mixture of Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, and Pineapple Tidbits. All just had such a fantastic flavor, the Pineapple Juice just tied all 3 ingredients together. With the bed of White Rice it made everything perfect, Rice is good with any dish! I’ll have to add this to the “Keeper Recipes” I had a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
