Today’s Menu: Fried Shrimp w/ Roasted Asparagus and Sliced New Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very windy out all day but the humidity is gone and we had a high of 79 degrees. Finally some relief from the heat and humidity! Later after Lunch I got the 4 wheel cart out and got some yard work done. Beautiful day to be outside doing something. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Shrimp w/ Roasted Asparagus and Sliced New Potatoes.

 

While at Meijer last week I picked up some more of the Black Tiger Shrimp. A couple of weeks ago we had some and they were delicious! This batch looks just as good, there is some huge Shrimp in this batch! For the Breading I’m using Zatarain’s Fish Fri Crispy Southern Mix.

 

To prepare the Shrimp I rinsed them off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Cooking Olive Oil. Fried each side for about 2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for Seafood!

 

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus, that I also picked up at Meijer earlier today. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

 

For another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Vegetable Products, always delicious and store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shrimp Health Benefits……….
Shrimp may have a variety of health benefits. It is high in several vitamins and minerals, and is a rich source of protein. Eating shrimp may also promote heart and brain health due to its content of omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant astaxanthin ( 6 , 11 , 12 , 13 ).

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus

 

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees, humid and mostly sunny outside. I had my Tea and went to Meijer for a few items for Dinner and I picked a few things up for an elderly neighbor of ours. Back home I watered the front and side lawn where I put the grass seed down. I bought Mom a new chair and a small table for outside on the deck. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus.

 

I purchased a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer earlier today. To prepare 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 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus, that I also picked up at Meijer earlier today. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees with rain and thunderstorms. There’s flooding everywhere here in the area. We’ve had 5 inches since last night! Some places have over 5 inches. It started late afternoon yesterday and ended this evening. So not a lot going on today. I did pack a few more things here in the spare room, getting it ready for the new flooring. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Roasted Asparagus.

 

I purchased a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer and had it in the freezer. I laid the Salmon in the fridge to thaw overnight. To prepare 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 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very windy and 59 degrees out today, felt cooler with wind blowing out all day. We didn’t get any damage in our area but tree limbs down from the storm that moved through last night. Some areas had flooding and heavy wind damage, we were lucky! I got the cart, rake and leaf blower out of the shed and cleaned up around the yard, limbs and garbage. Then I went over and gave a couple of neighbors a hand. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus. Love this trio of food together but haven’t had it in a while.

 

Walleye tonight! I bought the Walleye, Butternut Squash, and Asparagus all from Meijer. To prepare the Walleye I first rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. Next I cut the Fillet in half. Then to prepare it I seasoned it 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 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!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 2 small packages of Diced Butternut Squash at Meijer. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

Then for another side dish I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle it with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place the pan in the oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Raspberry Tea Snapple to drink.
