Today’s Menu: White Lake Perch w/ Potato Puffs

 

 

To start my day off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to grab the morning papers and it was about 47 degrees and a beautiful Fall dawn morning. A huge flock of Geese was flying southward overhead, the Season’s are a changing! Overnight I took a pretty bad fall. I guess I was sleep walking, or attempting to. I didn’t get to far without my walker. My entire right side is sore and cut my knee up. Not a good way to start the day off! Did a few light chores around the house and then headed outside to enjoy the beautiful Fall day. Got the cart out for most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its White Lake Perch w/ Potato Puffs.

 

I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had a bag in the freezer. Sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw. A couple of weeks ago had this same combination of the White Perch and Potato Puffs. It was so good I’m having it again! To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I’ll be seasoning them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix. First Salted them and then put the Fillets in a plastic bag and added the Breading. Shook the bag until the Fillets were covered.

 

Then added a few of them to the preheated skillet. I fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out a golden brown! The Perch was delicious, just love fresh water fish as I do all Fish. Meijer is about the only store that carries the White Perch and they also will have Yellow Lake Perch from time to time.

 

 

 

 

Then for a side dish I prepared I had some Alexia Potato Puffs, that I had leftover in the freezer. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Excellent Potato Product, browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For Dessert later a Sugar Free Cherry Jello Cup.

Today’s Menu: White Lake Perch w/ Potato Puffs

 

 

 

To start my day off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Only a high of 72 today with rain showers. Did some laundry, cleaned and straightened up both freezers, and cleaned the kitchen for my day. For Dinner tonight its White Lake Perch w/ Potato Puffs.

 

 

 

I had purchased the White Lake Perch yesterday at Meijer and had already cleaned it and had them in 2 bags. I kept 1 out for my Dinner tonight and froze the other bag. To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I’ll be seasoning them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this beautiful Sunday Morning I reheated 3 of the Potato Pancakes leftover from last night’s Dinner, love these things! I also toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another gorgeous day out there again. Sunny and 75 degrees, and no humidity. It’s unusual for this area to have weather like this at the end of June. Usually the high humidity has set in for the Summer and high temps. After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad at McDonald’s for them. Did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning, not a lot going on after that. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish.

 

Then for a side dish I prepared I had some Alexia Potato Puffs, that I had leftover in the freezer. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Excellent Potato Product, browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream Cup that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

 

For Breakfast I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 82 degrees. More rain moving back in tonight. Along with that the pollen and spore count is high today, and I can tell it with my allergies! We had to have Dad at the optometrist at 9:00 this morning, he needs new glasses. Back home did a few things around the yard and shed and then took the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley.

Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love having Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish.

 

I had some of the Alexia Potato Puffs leftover so I decided to have them as a side. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. They bake up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Grouper Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

 

 

Another night of heavy rains that finally ended. Lot of rain of late. It was very long afternoon yesterday trying to take care of Dad. He has panic attacks along with his dementia, it can very trying. Yesterday was a rough day for all of us! blackened-grouper-sandwich-w-baked-potato-puffs-011We started back with in-home nurse visits, he seems to respond better knowing a nurse checks him out. We are also going to get in home care. They come in 3 times a week to help with care for him. If this doesn’t work I’m afraid we may have to put him into assisted living. Hopefully things will work out soon. For Breakfast I made us all a Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. You can serve this topped with a fried Egg, diced Onions, or Shredded Cheese. I topped mine this morning with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Colby – Jack Cheese and a Fried Egg Sunnyside Up. Just cleaned the house and straightened everything up before the nurse got here. Then helped Mom with a couple of loads of laundry. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Grouper Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

 

blackened-grouper-sandwich-w-baked-potato-puffs-002

 

Using a Grouper fillet from the Florida Gulf Coast my friends brought me last week, thank you Jim and Linda! I had them in the freezer so I got one of the fillets out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

 

 

 
Next I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan was fully heated, on Blackened Grouper Sandwich w Baked Crinkle Fries 004medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and I topped the fillet with some McCormick Tarter Sauce.

I also baked some Alexia Potato Puffs. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil.

Today’s Menu: Swiss and Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

Swiss and Chicken Sandwich w Baked Potato Puffs 007
I toasted a couple of Eggo’s and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Then outside did the daily sweeping of the wooden deck and driveway. This morning it was 54 degrees, a little taste of Fall there! Another nice day out. A little warmer but still low humidity but the warmer temps and high humidity are on the way back. Had everything done for the day so I got the cart out and rode around the neighborhood for a while. For Dinner tonight it’s a Swiss and Chicken Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Perdue Crispy Chicken Strips
It just felt like a Swiss/Chicken kind of day. I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips, which I just had the night before. To prepare it I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious!

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Potato Puffs

Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Baked Potato Puffs 001
To start my day I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, not real hungry this morning. It’s another hot and humid day out there with showers on and off. Today was clean and straighten the freezer, fridge, and pantry day. So this took up my day for the most part. It took dad all of 24 hours to break the new lift chair we had bought him. So now its going to cost a little over $200 to repair it. The damage he caused is not covered under warranty. He kept moving the chair back as far as he could and it burnt the motor out. Nothing we can do but pay it! Anyway for Dinner tonight I prepared Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 003

Just can’t get enough of Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back! I had it in the freezer so I grabbed a fillet and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. It’s another one of those beautiful Grouper fillet! To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

 

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 004

I prepared it in a preheated Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper, so meaty, along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! Plus as you can tell as big as this filet was I only had half of it for dinner. The other half for lunch tomorrow!

 

Alexia Potato Puffs
Then for a side dish I prepared some Alexia Potato Puffs. Second time I’ve had these and really like them! To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. And we have another Keeper Potato Product! Browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w Baked Potato Puffs 008
For Breakfast I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Then about 11:00 Dad finally made it back home! It’s been a struggle for him since the collapsed lung, he was in rehab over 2 months. But at almost 95 years old it’s tough to come back. Good to have him home. Not as hot and a lot less humid out today. Sunny and 84 degrees out. Did some cleaning on the outside of the house and got the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

 

I had the Cod in the freezer. So I laid a package of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare thePanko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w Baked Crinkle Fries 001 Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined the flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish.

 

Alexia Potato Puffs
Then for a side dish I prepared some Alexia Potato Puffs. Second time I’ve had these and really like them! To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. And we have another Keeper Potato Product! Browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

For Breakfast it was a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage links and a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, I was set to start my day. After Breakfast I Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 008headed up to the local Kroger, I needed a few items and Mom needed a couple of things. Back home got everything put away and did some light cleaning. I spent the afternoon yesterday over seeing Dad at the rehab center. He’s finally getting stronger and walking with a walker on his own. He’ll be home Tuesday! So anyway I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep last night, Phantom Pains started a little after midnight. Hate dealing with those, so painful and aggravating! For dinner tonight I prepared a Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

 

 

Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 001

While digging in the freezer I found a couple of packages of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Bratwurst. These are so hard to find in this area, I had to write Blue Grass Meats last year because no local stores had any of them in stock. Finally Kroger started to carry them for a while so I had bought a couple of packages of them and forgot I had them, until yesterday!

 

 

 

 
Love the Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. To prepare them; Just add the Brats to a large skillet and add water, until the Brats are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 007_cropturn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get a nice crispy char and finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 
Then for a side dish I prepared something new, Alexia Potato Puffs. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 002degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. And Bam got another Keeper Potato Product! Browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
