Today’s Menu: Almandine Crusted Cod, Citrus Herb Marinated w/ Brown and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 78 degrees with rain on and off all day. Wow, these Phantom Pains just will not stop! It’s been going on for 2 days now. They aren’t quite as powerful as they were or frequent but they are still going! Just pray they stop soon. I spent the afternoon packing stuff away and moving it out of the extra room that we are putting new flooring down. I’ll be glad to get it done. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Almandine Crusted Cod, Citrus Herb Marinated w/ Brown and Wild Rice.

 

I tried a new product tonight Signature Almandine Crusted Cod, Citrus Herb Marinated (by Robert Irvine). I purchased it at Meijer along with a box of the Crab Cakes. Something new for Dinner. There’s 2 Cod Fillets per box. They come frozen and individually packaged. Each Fillet comes Almandine Crusted and  Citrus Herb Marinated.

 

To prepare it I Baked it.  I preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Removed the Glazed Fillet from it’s packaging. Next I lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray. Placed Fillet on the foil lined baking sheet skin side down. Then baked it for 24 minutes. The Fillet came out perfect! Baked up great and the Almandine Crust and Seasoning was perfect. Good item to have in the freezer and for a good cause. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Robert Irvine Foundation. Honoring our heroes. A portion of the proceeds support our military and their families.

 

For a side I prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Whole Grain Medley. It’s a Brown and Wild Rice with Herbs and Spices. It comes in a microwavable pouch. I just tore the top of the pouch to vent and microwaved it for 90 seconds. Done and Ready to serve! Always Delicious. I also had a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Roll. We love these rolls, they are always so fresh! Plus they are only 35 calories and 1 carb per roll! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Red Snapper w/ Cut Green Beans, Brown and Wild Rice, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast on this Sunday Morning. After my Tea I went to Kroger up the road from us. Wanted to get in and out before the crowd moved in. To Kroger’s credit they had everything fully stocked, which is unusual on a Holiday weekend. Back home got the cart and the yard tools out and did yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Red Snapper w/ Cut Green Beans, Brown and Wild Rice, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

I purchased a couple of Red Snapper Fillets from Meijer a while back and had them in the freezer. I laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. The Red Snapper Fillets were nice size and look beautiful. I decided to Blacken it, I love all Blackened Fish and Seafood. I’ll need Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning, Blue Bonnet Butter, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt. Cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet in Butter and Extra Light Olive Oil.

To prepare it I started by rinsing the Fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it in half. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning and Sea Salt. Then I got out the Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated I added my Snapper. Cooked it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! The taste of the Red Snapper with the added Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning makes it one delicious Fish Dish!

 

To go with my Blackened Snapper I opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I heated them up in a small saucepan on medium heat. Stirred often until heated, then served.

 

For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable package. I guess one of my favorites from the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, although I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone, Stay Safe!

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Red Beans and Rice
To start this day off I Poached an Egg, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had more rain overnight. Then for the day  it was 60 degrees and mostly sunny outside, still windy also. Did a load of laundry and then took my car and had it washed and stopped and got gas. Then stopped by the ATM and then dropped some letters off at the Post Office. Stopped by Walmart on my way back home. Back home I got my cart out and did some yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Red Beans and Rice, I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. I laid the package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed it skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

For my Rice I used a new one for me, Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Red Beans and Rice. It prepares as all the microwavable Ready Rice. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with any dish. This has plenty of Red Beans along with Rice, I’ll be buying more of this. As I said I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Dark Cherry Jello.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Kroger Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I heated up the Ham and put it over top the Hash Browns. One of my favorite Breakfast Dishes. Sunny and 53 degrees, very windy out. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Got the cart out of the shed after Lunch. We had some very strong winds yesterday and had leaves, tree branches, and blown trash all the yard. Everyone’s yard was a mess. So clean up took most of the afternoon. 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 69 degrees and partly cloudy out today. A bit cooler out there today and they say a high in the 50’s by Friday. Maybe Fall has arrived! I’m glad I’m caught up with everything. I had one of those sleepless and rough nights dealing with Phantom Pains! Little to no sleep overnight. They started about 10:00 last night and finally let up about 11:00 this morning so I spent the day resting and catching up on sleep. I’m totally exhausted. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread.

 

I had purchased a a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer and had it in the freezer. I sat the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Layed the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

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!

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 95 degrees, humid and had a brief passing rain shower. After I had my Tea I got the cart out and finished some yard work. Back inside before the heat and humidity kicked in for the day! Caught up on a couple of Movies I had recorded. Not much else happening. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread.

 

I purchased a a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer yesterday on my food delivery. 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!

 

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 Salmon.Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Salmon w/ Long Grain & Wild Rice and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg. Then I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and served the Poached Egg on 1/2 of it. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees and a passing Thunderstorm with some strong winds. Rain on and off throughout the day. After Breakfast I washed Mom’s bed linens and pillow cases. Later on cleaned and straightened the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Salmon w/ Long Grain & Wild Rice and Cut Green Beans.

 

I picked up a Wild Caught North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Kroger and had it in the Freezer, sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’ll be seasoning it with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Dried Dill, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it I’ll be grilling it in a Fish Fillet Grill Basket.

 

I had forgot I had a Fish Grill Basket. I had it stored in the shed and came across it the other day when I was moving things around. Cleaned it up and it was ready to go. To start I seasoned my Salmon. Then went out and started the grill. Back inside I put some Extra Light Olive Oil on the Basket. Next I got my Salmon loaded into the Grill Basket. With the Grill heated I set the Grill Basket into the Grill and shut the lid. After 3 minutes I flipped the Grill Basket to the other side of the Salmon. That’s why I like these Grill Baskets, just flip them over to grill the other side of your Fish. I cooked that side for about 3 minutes and shut the Grill off and removed the Grill Basket from inside the Grill.

The Salmon came out Grilled perfectly! Heated just right to where the Salmon was just starting to flake. Delicious! Grilling Salmon is the way to go!

 

 

 

To go with the Salmon I 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.

 

 

I also opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I heated them up in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Stirred often until heated, then served.I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
