For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links, toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A couple of showers this morning and throughout the day, had a high in the 40’s. After Breakfast and my morning workout I started a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. After I started the Laundry I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Back home cleaned the house today, ran the vacuum and dusted. Dinner tonight its a Fried Walleye Sandwich w/ Baked Potato.

 

I had purchased a couple of Walleye Fillets at Kroger and had prepared 1 of them and had the other in the freezer, I Fried Walleye w Risotto and Cut Green Beans 001laid the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love Walleye we had not so couldn’t wait to have some again. I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel and cut the fillet in half. Seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet 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 it in 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. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun.

Today’s Menu: Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato

 

 

 

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 013

Not quite as cold out this morning but still breezy. For Breakfast I had a bowl of Cheerios along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After I had Breakfast, Mom and Dad wanted McDonald’s so I went and picked up Breakfast for them. On the way back I noticed gas was at $1.80 a gallon, getting better! Not much going on today, the repairman showed up and he replaced a Kitchen drawer for us. After that just did some odds and ends jobs around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato.

 

 

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 002
For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto. First to make the Tomato Pesto I’ll need; 1 Pint Cherry Tomatoes (halved), Extra Virgin Olive Oil for seasoning + 1/4 cup, Salt and Pepper (to taste), 1 Cup fresh Basil Leaves, 2 Tablespoons toasted Pine Nuts, and 1 Clove Garlic (minced). The recipe is at the end of the post. I love this Pesto!

 

 

 

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 005
To prepare the Pesto; preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Toss the halved Tomatoes lightly with Olive Oil, and arrange on a rimmed foil lined baking sheet, and season with Salt. Roast the Tomatoes for about 2 hours, until shriveled. Let cool. Keep the oven and increase the heat to 400 degrees, for baking the Cod. Place the Tomatoes, Basil, Pine Nuts, and Garlic in a food processor; pulse to chop. Add 1/4 cup Olive Oil; pulse to combine well. Season with Salt and Pepper.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

 

Potato and Ham Skillet
For Breakfast Mom and Dad wanted some of the 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. I topped everything with a Sunny Side Egg and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. Just love starting off the day with a skillet meal!

 

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 010
After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger up the road. I need Bread and a few other things. Stopped for gas on the way back home. Did some light cleaning in and around the house. Then after Lunch I had to drive to Cincinnati to where Dad gets his home oxygen from. I had to pick up some new oxygen lines. They have to be changed every 60 days or so due to residue build up in the lines leading from the oxygen machine. There’s always so much traffic in the part of Cincinnati I had to go to. Very glad to get back home. It was cool morning, about 40 degrees. We had a high of 63 degrees and partly cloudy skies. For dinner tonight its Baked Salmon w/ Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

Baked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 001
I had the Salmon Fillet in the freezer. Grabbed a fillet out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it, I rinsed it off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. I just love all Fish and Seafood.

For one side I prepared a Baked Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. 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. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 
For Breakfast I toasted a couple Eggo Waffles w/ Nutrigrain, lightly buttered, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf 5-oz-petite-buffalo-top-sirloin-steak-w-baked-potato-and-cut-gr-002Green Tea. We finally got a little rain overnight, we really need it too it’s so dry out. The rain and wind blew a ton of leaves on our deck and driveway. So I got the leaf blower out and cleaned it all up. Mostly cloudy and a bit cooler out, a high in the 70’s. I went back up to the rehab center and spent most of the day with my friend’s family. Not sure how much longer he’s going to be with us. He’s son is taking it real hard. Wish I could do more for them. Got back home and finished up some laundry Mom had started. I have to fast starting at midnight, not that I’m eating that time of night anyway. I have my 4 month checkup on sugar, cholesterol, and such at 8:00 in the morning. For Dinner tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1/2 Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w Baked Steak Fries and Skil 005teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary, McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo I’ve ever had. As always when cooking Buffalo, keep an eye on it will get done quickly. They cook faster than marbled meat and when overcooked will be tough and dry. Buffalo is best cooked medium-rare or rare.

I had a baked Russet Potato for 1 side. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, love those Green Beans! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Cut Asparagus

 

 
Started my day off by Poaching an Egg and serving it on top of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Muffin. Also had buffalo-10-oz-new-york-strip-steak-w-baked-potato-and-cut-aspar-009the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did a couple of loads of laundry for myself and Mom. Then after Lunch I headed up to the hospital for the afternoon to see Dad. Not been a good day for him, still sick to his stomach. They are having trouble finding the cause of it, all tests have come back negative. Hope turns it around soon. Back in the 90’s and a bit more humid out there today. For Dinner tonight a Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Cut Asparagus.

 

 
I had ordered a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steaks and had them in the freezer. So I grabbed one out of the freezer last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. What beautiful cuts of Buffalo these Steaks buffalo-10-oz-new-york-strip-steak-w-baked-potato-and-cut-aspar-005are, so lean and delicious. To prepare it all I’ll need is McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Rosemary, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I started by preheating a Cast Iron Skillet on medium high. Then rubbed a very light coat of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil on both sides of the Steak then seasoned both sides with the Rosemary, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Once the skillet is hot I added the Steak let it sear on the medium heat for about 6 minutes. Then turned it once and cooked for 7 more minutes. The Steak is a thick cut so I had to cook it longer than normal. Served it with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

These Steaks are every bit as delicious as they look! The taste is so fresh and has that slight sweet Grass Fed Buffalo taste to it. Moist and tender and so delicious! You just can’t beat these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, Bison or Beef. The Steak was plenty big so I saved some it for my Breakfast in the morning, Steak and Eggs!

For a side dish I baked a Russet Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 
Then I also prepared some Cut Asparagus with Bacon Bits. I had purchased the Asparagus at the local Kroger just the other day. I washed the Asparagus and trimmed off the stalk ends. I then cut the Asparagus into 3 pieces. Heated upbuffalo-10-oz-new-york-strip-steak-w-baked-potato-and-cut-aspar-008 a medium size skillet that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. I had placed the Asparagus pieces in a bowl and seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Garlic Salt, Smoked Real Bacon Bits, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Mixed well. Then added the Asparagus to the preheated skillet. Cooked them for about 8 minutes. Removed from the heat and served. Sprinkled Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and done. Excellent Dinner Tonight! For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Rough day yesterday with the funeral of my Aunt. But I know she would want everyone to go on with their lives and that’s what I’ll do. But I’m a much better person for having had her in my life! I hit the grocery stores early this 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w Baked Potato and Cut Gr 004morning after Breakfast. Thankfully all the stores are close to each other so I just hit stop by stop. I first stopped by Walmart to stock up on my Bigelow Green Tea,Walmart has the best price by far on the Tea. Then on to Meijer where I bought the majority of everything we needed. Last stop Kroger for Mom, she’s a die-hard Kroger shopper! Everything done and headed for home. Still hot and humid, no change in our weather. Did a few chores around the house to end the afternoon. For Dinner tonight it’s my favorite Steak, Wild Idea Buffalo. I prepared a 5 oz.

Today’s Menu: Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato

 

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 013
Wow, one humid morning out there today. I went out to get the morning paper and walking out felt like opening an oven door! For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not much to do outside, too humid and rain on and of today. So inside repaired some base board molding around the house, I’m banging into it all the time in my Hoveround Chair. Then on to the Kitchen and cleaned the Fridge, Stove, and Microwave. For dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato.

 
I actually got tonight’s Dinner recipe, Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto, from a Kroger Coupon and Ad we got in the mail. They used Halibut where I’m using Cod. Halibut is okay but not my favorite. Plus Cod is fewer calories and, at least to me, cooks up better.

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 002

First to make the Tomato Pesto I’ll need; 1 Pint Cherry Tomatoes (halved), Extra Virgin Olive Oil for seasoning + 1/4 cup, Salt and Pepper (to taste), 1 Cup fresh Basil Leaves, 2 Tablespoons toasted Pine Nuts, and 1 Clove Garlic (minced).

 

 

 

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 005

 

To prepare the Pesto; preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Toss the halved Tomatoes lightly with Olive Oil, and arrange on a rimmed foil lined baking sheet, and season with Salt. Roast the Tomatoes for about 2 hours, until shriveled. Let cool. Keep the oven and increase the heat to 400 degrees, for baking the Cod. Place the Tomatoes, Basil, Pine Nuts, and Garlic in a food processor; pulse to chop. Add 1/4 cup Olive Oil; pulse to combine well. Season with Salt and Pepper.

 

 

 

Baked Cod with Tomato Pesto and Baked Potato 008
To prepare the Cod I’ll need; 2-4 Cod Pieces (I used 2), Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper (to taste). Use a rimmed foil lined baking sheet. Brush the Cod Fillets with the Olive Oil, season well with salt and Pepper (to taste) and place the sheet in the oven. Bake until the Cod flakes with a fork, about 11 minutes. To serve spoon the Pesto over each Fillet. I Love this Pesto Sauce! Works perfect with Fish, the Tomatoes and Pine Nuts work great together.

 

 

Baked Potato
For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w/ Baked Potato

 

Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w Baked Potato 010
I 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 for Breakfast. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer and stopped at Kroger to pick up a few items for Mom. I wanted to get things done early before the heat and humidity set in for the day. I don’t mind the high temperatures but can’t stand the high humidity. Back home did some cleaning, vacuum and dusting. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w/ Baked Potato.

 

 

Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w Baked Potato 001

Some good friends of mine called yesterday and said to come over and pick up some fish they had caught at the Florida Gulf. They gave me some beautiful fillets of Grouper and Mahi Mahi. So I couldn’t wait to try one, and went with the Mahi Mahi. 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 Mahi Mahi Sandwich w Baked Potato 003
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 the Mahi Mahi. 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 Mahi Mahi fillet! The fresh taste of the Mahi Mahi, so meaty, along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I topped it with some Louisiana Remoulade Sauce and Lettuce.
