Today’s Menu: Velveeta/Kraft Dinners Chili Cheese Mac Velveeta Cheesy Skillets w/ Whole Grain BreadVelveeta Turkey Chili Mac 002

 

 
Come on warm Spring time weather! Beautiful sunny but cool day out today but as usual starting tomorrow and going through part of Monday SNOW! How much, I’ve heard anywhere from 3″ to 8″ inches. Come on Mother Nature show us a little love! Anyway for dinner I prepared Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinner Chili Cheese Mac, using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey and added 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans.

 

 

As in all the Chessy Skillet Dinners the kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 2 cups of water, the seasoning and pasta. Simmer for 10 – 12 minutes and add the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above. The Ultimate Cheeseburger Dinner is very good but i think this is my new favorite. I really like the Chili Seasoning! Another one pan quick, easy, and delicious Velveeta/Kraft Dinner! I also had a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn…. and to all a good night!

Well it warmed up a bit today after yesterday’s snow. Starting to melt already as it’s around 40 degrees today. Went to Jungle Jim’s Market this morning, which is always an experience in grocery shopping! You could spend hours in the Deli and Produce departments alone. Stocked up on Produce and some Seafood items. For dinner I prepared a new one from the Velveeta/Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinners, Chili Cheese Mac.

 

 

 

I’ve tried the Ultimate Cheeseburger numerous times so I thought I would give the Chili Cheese Mac a try. The dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories!

Today’s Menu: Baked Haddock w/ Green Beans, (Shells) Mac and Cheese, and Whole Grain BreadBaked Haddock 004
They nailed the weather again! Cold and windy and got about an 1″ of snow. Possible 40 degrees coming up though so it won’t last long. Tried a new halibut recipe for dinner tonight, it’s a Baked Halibut one. For dinner tonight I prepared Baked Haddock w/ Green Beans, (Shells) Mac and Cheese, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

To prepare the Haddock I preheated the oven to 350 degrees. For my seasoning I combined 1 cup Italian Breadcrumbs, 2 Tbsp melted Butter (Blue Bonett Light Stick Butter), 1 teaspoons Parsley or Parsley Flakes, 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder, and 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt. Placed the fillets in 11×7 in. baking pan and sprinkled the combined ingredients over the fish. Baked for 25 minutes, until the fish was fork flakey. I like this recipe! The Haddock comes out moist and well seasoned. Haddock is good any way you prepare it, it always taste fresh.

 

Then for sides I prepared a single serving of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I also microwaved a single serving of Velveeta/Kraft Shells & Cheese (made with 2% milk). For Bread I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Later tonight for dessert a 4 Slice Package of Dole Banana Dippers (Covered in Dark Chocolate).

Today’s Menu: Bread Crumb Crusted Tilapia w/ Shells and Cheese, Green Beans, and Whole Grain BreadBreaded Tilapia 002

 
I prepared a Bread Crumb Crusted Tilapia w/ Velveeta Shells and Cheese, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread for dinner tonight. The Tilapia are the ones I purchased from Costco a while back. They come pre seasoned and already breaded. I fried them on a flat top grill pan. I really like using the grill pans. No oil needed just spray it with Pam Spray and it’s ready. I fried them about 4 minutes per side, until golden brown.

Then for a sides I prepared a single serving of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I also microwaved a single serving of Velveeta/Kraft Shells & Cheese (made with 2% milk). For Bread i used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Later tonight for dessert a 4 Slice Package of Dole Banana Dippers (Covered in Dark Chocolate).

 
Tilapia

 

Tilapia (pron.: /tɨˈlɑːpiə/ ti-la-pee-ə) is the common name for nearly a hundred species of cichlid fish from the tilapiine cichlid tribe. Breaded Tilapia 001Tilapia are mainly freshwater fish, inhabiting shallow streams, ponds, rivers and lakes, and less commonly found living in brackish water. Historically, they have been of major importance in artisan fishing in Africa and the Levant, and are of increasing importance in aquaculture. Tilapia can become problematic invasive species in new warm-water habitats, whether deliberately or accidentally introduced, but generally not in temperate climates due to their inability to survive in cooler waters below about 21 °C (70 °F).

 
Whole tilapia fish can be processed into skinless, boneless (PBO) fillets: the yield is from 30 percent to 37 percent, depending on fillet size and final trim. The use of tilapia in the commercial food industry has led to the virtual extinction of genetically pure bloodlines. Most wild tilapia today are hybrids of several species.
Tilapia have very low levels of mercury, as they are fast-growing, lean and short-lived, with a primarily vegetarian diet, so do not accumulate mercury found in prey. Feral tilapia, however, may accumulate substantial quantities of mercury. Tilapia is low in saturated fat, calories, carbohydrates and sodium, and is a good protein source. It also contains the micronutrients phosphorus, niacin, selenium, vitamin B12 and potassium.

 
However, typical farm-raised tilapia (the least expensive and most popular source) have low levels of omega-3 fatty acids (the essential nutrient that is an important reason that dieticians recommend eating fish), and a relatively high proportion of omega-6. “Ratios of long-chain omega-6 to long-chain omega-3, AA to EPA, respectively, in tilapia averaged about 11:1, compared to much less than 1:1 (indicating more EPA than AA) in both salmon and trout,” reported a study published in July 2008. The report suggests the nutritional value of farm-raised tilapia may be compromised by the amount of corn included in the feed. The corn contains short-chain omega-6 fatty acids that contribute to the buildup of these materials in the fish.
The lower amounts of omega-3 and the higher ratios of omega-6 fats in US-farmed tilapia raised questions about the health benefits of consuming farmed tilapia fish. Some media reports even controversially suggested that farm-raised tilapia may be worse for the heart than eating bacon or a hamburger. This prompted the release of an open letter, signed by 16 science and health experts from around the world, that stated that both oily (i.e. high in omega-3 fatty acids) fish and lean fish like tilapia are an important part of the diet and concluded that “replacing tilapia or catfish with ‘bacon, hamburgers or doughnuts’ is absolutely not recommended.”

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Nuggets w/ Hash Browns and Velveeta Shells and Cheese
It was Catfish Nuggets for dinner tonight. I used 2 pie pans to prepare the nuggets filling one with EggBeater’s seasoned with Paprika and in the other Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Catfish with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and then dipped each one in the Egg Beater’s, making sure each was well coated. Shaking off the excess Egg Beater I then rolled them in the Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I fried them in Canola Oil on medium heat about 4 – 5 minutes, turning once. They came up golden brown and delicious! Catfish fries up so good. Baking Fish is a lot healthier but Catfish is a Fish that tastes better fried. i als made a Remoulade Sauce. Made with Reduced Fat Mayo, Chili Sauce, and Horseradish Sauce along with some spices. I left the full recipe at the end of the post.
For sides I had Simply Potatoes Hash Browns and I also prepared an individual serving of Velveeta 2% Shells and Cheese. Easy to prepare, microwave 3 1/2 minutes, and just as good as fixing it from a box. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Frozen Ice cream Truffle Bar.

 

Remoulade Sauce

Ingredients

1 Cup Light Mayonnaise
2 tbsp Chili Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Salt
tsp Curry Powder, or to taste
1 Tbsp Hot Prepared Horseradish
1 tsp Dry Mustard

*Add all ingredients to jar or container

Today’s Menu: Fried Haddock w/ Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

It was a very sad day today as my Aunt was taken to the local Hospice Center 2 days ago and I went today to visit her. Her health is rapidly failing and it’s just so sad to see her like that. She was like a second Mother to me. If she can’t recover I just pray she goes peacefully.

My parents were going to spend the day with my Aunt so I was cooking for 1 tonight. So tonight I prepared Fried Haddock w/ Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread. I had the Haddock frozen from a while back. I had purchased several fillets at Kroger while they were on sale. I love Haddock you can prepare it so many different ways and it comes out delicious any way you choose to prepare it. I seasoned my fillets with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I rolled the fillets in Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs and pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. It came out golden brown, moist and delicious!

For side dishes I had Velveeta Whole grain Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Asparagus, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Rotini & Cheese is higher in calories and carbs than I normally like but it’s been a while since I’ve had any and the Haddock, Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread are all lower in calories and carbs so I can work the Rotini in without it raising either too bad. I left the product description at the end of the post. As I said I also has Steamed Asparagus. I’ve been buying this from Kroger for a while now. It’s the best packaged Asparagus that I’ve had. It comes in it’s own steamable bag so you just puncture the bag in 3 places and microwave it for 2 minutes. I also had 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Mac & Cheese, Green Beans and Cornbread

I’m using the last of my Yellow Lake Perch I had frozen. It’s time to make another trip to Meijer to stock up on the Yellow Lake Perch. I love Fish and all Sea Food. I washed the Perch and patted them dry then seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. The filets are small and I cut them in half. I then took a Ziplock Bag and put a 1/2 cup of Progresso Italian Style Breadcrumbs in it and added my filets and shook the bag until the filets were coated. I pan fried the fillets in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, about 2 1/2 minutes per side. As I said earlier the fillets were small and not very thick so they fried up real quick. They came out golden and delicious!

For side dishes I had Mac & Cheese, Green Beans and Cornbread.I microwaved a single serving of Velveeta/Kraft Shells & Cheese (made with 2% milk). I also heated a single serving of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and made a small cast iron skillet of Cornbread! Cornbread is the perfect bread with fish. I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. It’s easy to fix, the instructions are on the bag. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. For dessert later a bowl of Blue Bunny Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Velveeta Cheesy Turkey Mac w/ Whole Grain Bread
The one pot meals, you have to love them! I used Kraft/Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit/Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac. The dinner kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Turkey. I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey. Using the Extra Lean Ground Turkey instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 60 – 80 calories! As I browned the Turkey I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 10 minutes. I then add 2 cups of water, the seasoning and pasta. Simmer for 11 – 13 minutes and add the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 350 calories and 27 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Turkey as stated above. I also had a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert/snack later some Tostito‘s Whole Grain Scoops with Newman’s Own Medium Chunky Black Bean & Corn Salsa.
