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: Seasoned Haddock w/ Cut Green Beans and Baby Carrots

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole Baby Carrots and Cut Green Beans 002
For Breakfast on the rainy and windy Thursday morning I prepared a couple of Bob Evan’s Turkey Sausage Patties. They pre-cooked so all you do is heat them up in a skillet for 8 minutes. Just the right size for the Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffins that I use. Good tasting sausage patties, made a good Breakfast Sandwich! Another rainy and windy night and most of today, had a high in the 40’s. So staying today it was house cleaning this afternoon, vacuumed and dusting. For dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Haddock w/ Cut Green Beans and Baby Carrots.

 

 

Seasoned Haddock w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoe 002

I had a few bags of Haddock Fillets in the freezer so I grabbed 1 bag and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. I had already cleaned and cut the fillet into smaller pieces. To prepare them I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is. The Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Fish-Fri is a perfect seasoning for the mild Haddock.

 

 

Whole Baby Carrots
For one side dish I reheated some leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also prepared 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. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

 

 

 
Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Fish-Fri

Big easy lemon squeezy. That’s the secret to an authentic Southern-style fish fry: a crispy combination of corn flour, spices and lemon juice. Just add your favorite fresh fish like trout, redfish, catfish or flounder.

Today’s Menu: Stir-Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles

 

 

stir-fry-shrimp-with-udon-noodles-009 (1)

Started my day with a light Breakfast of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After that I went to Kroger for Mom, just needed a fe items. Back home helped Mom with some laundry and got the leaf blower out to blow out a lot of leaves and small limbs. They are tearing down the woods behind us and it’s giving us a mess to clean up! Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared a Stir – Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles.

 

 

 

Stir-Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles 001

I had been wanting some Stir-Fry for a while now and today just felt like the day to have it! To make this dish I’ll need; 1 – 7oz. pouch Udon Noodles (KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles), 1 lb. bag of Large Shrimp, Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snap Peas, LaChoy Sliced Water Chestnuts, 1 tsp minced Garlic, 1 tbsp butter (Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter), 1 tsp sugar (Splenda Sugar), and Light Soy Sauce (Kikkoman Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce).

 

 

 

stir-fry-shrimp-with-udon-noodles-005
To prepare it, I started by preparing the Baby Carrots. I boiled them in a small sauce pan, boiling them until they were not quite fork tender. I parboiled them because Carrots take a bit to cook and by boiling them first they will get done in the wok with the other ingredients. As the Carrots were boiling I also prepared the Shrimp. In a bowl mix the shrimp with 1 tsp Splenda Sugar and a dash of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley . Marinate for 15 minutes. Next cooked them in a bit of butter just until pink. Remove Shrimp from the skillet and set aside along with Baby Carrots.

 

 

shrimp-with-udon-noodles-006

 

In a separate skillet I prepared the Udon Noodles. Using a medium size skillet, I added 1/2 Tbsp. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated on medium high. I added the Noodles and the Soy Sauce, stirred and cooked for 2 minutes. Removed from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 
Using the same skillet as the Shrimp was cooked I added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (cooking on medium high) along with the Butter, Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snap Peas, Water Chestnuts and 1 tsp minced Garlic. Stir-Fry Shrimp with Udon Noodles 005Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and the Peppercorn Medley. Cooked it 2 minutes and then added 2 tablespoons of water and the cooked Carrots, Shrimp, and Noodles. Continued to cook everything for an additional 1 1/2 minutes, stirring it often. Remove from heat and serve! Love this dish, everything spot on! The Noodles, Shrimp, Vegetables, along with the seasoning and Soy Sauce combine to make one delicious dish. Really like the KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles, they taste so fresh! For dessert/snack later some Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops and Newman’s Own Black Bean and Corn Salsa.

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots

Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carro 003
For Breakfast had a toasted healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Right after Breakfast I headed to Meijer, wanted to go early and get back. Back home I had to break out the leaf blower, the driveway and deck was littered with leaves and twigs from the wind of the last couple of days. Had lunch and after that headed to the hospital to see Dad. He might be released this weekend, he looks so much better! Back at home finished up some laundry for Mom and then on to some light house cleaning. Busy, busy day! Finally for dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots.

 

Fried Gulf Coast Grouper 001
I had been preparing the Red Snapper my friends had brought back from the Florida Gulf Coast, which I used all of it. So now I broke out the Grouper that they had for me. I got one of the fillets out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. It’s one 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.

 

 

Blackend Grouper Grain Carrots 001

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 along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood!

 

 

 

Minute Multi Grain Medley (2)

For one side dish I prepared some Minute Multi Grain Medley. I love the Minute Multi Grain, It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs per serving, which isn’t bad for a Grain Dish. Then I also prepared 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. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

 

 

 

 

Minute Multi-Grain Medley

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 Minute Multi Grain Medleyminutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.

Directions
1 -Do NOT use the bag for cooking. COMBINE water and contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water.
2 – BRING to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed.
3 – REMOVE from heat. Fluff with fork.

Beautiful morning out there today. Chilly but sunny, we had a high in the 50’s. had a light Breakfast and after my morning workout and a shower I had to get the Pot Roast started in the Slow Cooker.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Baby Carrots

 

Baked Chicken Breast Strips w Mashed Potatoes and and Baby Carro 003
Wow I had a long and sleepless night last night. I had to deal with those Phantom Pains all night and most of today. When they are this bad I know I’m in for some pain. It looks as though with as many Amputees there are and most having to deal with Phantom Pins that they could come up with something to ease them or stop them. Just have to deal with it.

 
Wasn’t really hungry this morning so I just had a cup of Bigelow Green Decaf Green Tea. I didn’t do much of anything today the Phantom Pains continued to around mid afternoon. Tried to rest and catch up on some sleep. I had planned something new for dinner but it on hold until tomorrow, just didn’t feel like putting a lot of effort into cooking. So it was an easy prepared dinner tonight! I had Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Baby Carrots.

 

 

Baked Chicken Breast Strips w Mashed Potatoes and Baby Carrots 003

For days like this, this is why I keep foods like this always in the freezer or pantry. Nothing easier and more delicious Pilgrim Chicken Strips than Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips, it’s always a great go to when you want that easy to prepare meal! It’s the best Frozen Chicken that I’ve found by far. Very easy to prepare; Preheat oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the chicken breast fritter. And Chicken is served! As I said it’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and easy to prepare. Served it with a side of JB’s Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce.

 

 

 

Mashed Potatoes
For one side I made some of my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I also prepared 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. Delicious meal and easy to prepare. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Baby Carrots

 

 

noodles-and-chicken 6
Had a light Breakfast and then we had to get Mom’s car to the mechanic’s. Last week my brakes went out , busted brake lines, and this week her’s went out. What are the odds the same thing happening to both cars! Expensive, but has to be repaired. . Beautiful day out, sunny and 70. Got the cart out around noon enjoyed the beautiful day. For dinner tonight I prepared Chicken ‘n’ Noodles w/ Baby Carrots.

 

 
I used Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Chicken n Noodles Fixins’.One of my favorite Comfort Foods! I used to buy noodles-and-chicken-222this at Walmart all the time but Margaret Holmes no longer makes it, lack of sales they say. So now I purchase it on-line from different sites, last of their stock. Anyway it comes in a 5 serving can and contains the Noodles and Seasoning, I added the Chicken. I cut up 2 Perdue Perfect Portions Chicken Breasts seasoning them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Ground Smoked Cumin, and Parsley. I then fried them in a large skillet, on medium high, until done. When ready, removed them from the pan on to my cutting board. Shredded and cut the Breasts into small pieces. Added the can of Fixins’ to the skillet along with the Chicken. Cooked until it the Sauce was bubbling reduced the heat to low simmered until it was heated throughout. The broth that’s with Noodles is incredible! Rich and thick and seasoned just right. The best Chicken and Noodles, bar none! I’ve got 6 cans of this left and that will be the end of it, I checked on-line and all the sites are now sold out.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carro 008
Had a light Breakfast of a Toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Not a whole lot going on today. Did some house cleaning and helped Mom with some laundry. Did some cleaning and straightening up in the pantry and freezer. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots.

 

 
Some good friends of mine always bring me Gulf Coast Grouper and Snapper when they return from their Florida Vacations. I had one last bag left in the freezer so I laid it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ve got some beautiful fillets of Grouper to fry for dinner tonight! I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillets in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillets.

I prepared them 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, 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 batch of Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish!

For one side dish I prepared some Minute Multi Grain Medley. I love the Minute Multi Grain, It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs per serving, which isn’t bad for a Grain Dish. Then I also prepared 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. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder w/ Boiled Baby Carrots and Roasted Yukon Potatoes with Rosemary

 

Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 010
It’s a typical Ohio Summer Day outside today! Hot and Humid, but not overly bad. Had a light Breakfast and then my morning workout. I got my Pork Shoulder going in the Crock Pot and then gave the Kitchen and Fridge a good cleaning. Ran the vacuum and dusted, and cleaning was done for the day! Not much else going on so it was the sofa and remote for me. For dinner tonight I prepared a Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder w/ Boiled Baby Carrots and Roasted Yukon Potatoes with Rosemary.

 

 

Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 004
I had been wanting some Pork Shoulder for a while. So while I was at Kroger yesterday I picked one up. I used a real easily prepared recipe for it. Using one of my favorite cooking vessels, the Crock Pot. To make this I’ll need the following; Pork Shoulder or Boston Butt (about 4 to 7 pounds, bone-in or boneless), 1/4 cup of Water, JB’s Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub, and JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce.

 

 
The night before I applied the Rub all over Pork Shoulder and sealed it in a plastic bag. Refrigerate until ready to use the next day. Pulled the Pork Shoulder from the fridge, shaking off any excess Rub. Then to prepare it I lined my Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 005Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Plastic Bag Liner and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. Turned the Crock Pot on High. Placed the Meat in the slow cooker with Water. Covered and cooked on High for 1 hour. Turned it to Low and cooked 7 to 9 hours longer, until very tender. Removed the Roast and discarded the fat and juices. Shredded the Pork; returned it to slow cooker. Mixing a little BBQ Sauce into the Meat for more flavor. Cover and cooked on Low for about 1 hour longer, until hot. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Sandwich Bun. With Coleslaw (Optional) and extra BBQ Sauce on the side. Nothing but a winning Pork Shoulder Dish! So tender and seasoned just right with Rub and BBQ Sauce. A lot of leftovers for some delicious Sandwiches!

 

Noodles n Chicken Baby Carrots 004
For one side dish I prepared Boiled Baby Carrots. I used a can of Kroger Baby Carrots, just heat in a sauce pan in its own juices and serve. I use these all the time, just as good as fresh and easier to prepare.

 

 

 
Then for the other side I prepared Roasted Yukon Potatoes with Rosemary. I’ll need; YukonCrockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 007 Gold Potatoes (cut in wedges), 1 tablespoon Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. To prepare I preheated the oven to 425 degrees F. Tossed the Potatoes, Dried Rosemary, Olive Oil, and Sea Salt and Pepper. Then on a foil lined baking sheet arrange the Potatoes cut side down and roast until fork tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Potatoes and Carrots and Pork, a perfect trio combo for dinner. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
