For golden brown chicken every time, put a few drops of yellow food coloring in the shortening before it has heated. Winner, Winner……

Sweet Potato Bread Pudding with Pecan Praline Sauce
The dessert menu at Brigtsen’s restaurant in New Orleans offers “Bread Pudding du Jour,” which changes with the seasons. This sweet potato version plays well during the holidays………..

Spiced Apple Bread Pudding
This silky apple dessert recipe–a spiced apple bread pudding made with apple cider in place of the usual custard–gets a double hit of apple flavor from both the cider and plenty of sliced tart apples. Mace, the lacy red spice that coats the nutmeg fruit, adds a particularly lovely floral note, but you can substitute nutmeg if you don’t have any mace on hand……………

Breakfast Fruit Bread Pudding
Studded with strawberries, this breakfast recipe is a cross between a baked French toast and a dessert bread pudding. Swap in almost any fruit depending on what’s in season. Although we typically advocate using whole-grain bread, we stuck with challah for this recipe, because the results are so luscious………….

5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny, 94 degrees and humid out today. Busy day today. We had the carpet cleaned in the Living Room and Master Bedroom. Then I had to go to Home Depot and buy paint for our deck. Then I took a friend of mine out to Ross, Ohio to the outdoor Produce Markets. I bought some 1/2 Runner Green Beans, a Cantaloupe for Mom, and some Sweet Corn. I also got Beans for 2 of my neighbors. A lot going on today! For Dinner I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Lite Toast.

 

I prepared one of my favorite Steaks, a Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Toast. I’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 5 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

 

I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak

Famous for their flavor, these juicy steaks are perfect for the grill. The steaks are cut from the middle and upper part of the primal sirloin and their smaller size makes a great meal for one. 5 oz.

Grilled Blackened Shrimp Tacos
Give juicy shrimp tacos a Cajun flavor spin with spices and a quick sear on a hot grill. An easy avocado mash adds creaminess to cool off the spicy kick……..

Hot Honey Grilled Shrimp
Shrimp are coated in sweet heat thanks to hot honey and Sriracha. If you want to take the heat down a notch, use regular honey instead…………

Grilled Shrimp Tostadas
Grilling gives these shrimp tostadas a boost of smoky flavor. Skewering the shrimp prevents them from falling through the grates while getting even char on each side. If you have a grill basket, you can throw them in that instead; just make sure to get them into a single layer so they don’t steam…………

Grilling shrimp with shell on or off?……..

Butterfly shrimp by slicing almost through lengthwise, but leave shell on shrimp, this will keep the shrimp tender while grilling over such high heat. Brush shrimps with oil, season with salt and pepper and grill 2 minutes on each side, until shells are hot pink and shrimp is opaque.

Cucumbers……….

When buying – Look for firm cucumbers, without blemishes or soft spots, which can indicate they have started to rot. They should be dark green without any yellow spots, which develop as the cucumber is getting overly ripe. At that point, it will often produce off-flavors and odors.

To Store them – Cucumbers can last about 2 weeks at maximum quality before they start to soften. Due to their high water content, the quicker you use a fresh cucumber, the better. Chilling cucumbers in the fridge can make them last, but only if you do so carefully.

Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start this rainy morning off I made a 1/2 package of Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Meijer Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then topped them off with Diced Ham. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 92 degrees, humid, and sunny outside today. I repainted the trim of our shed after Breakfast. Then later I sprayed for weeds and crabgrass. Then raked the backyard. I pulled up a couple of the Pepper plants also, done for the year. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had bought the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets 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 Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side for about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes and Green Beans. I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia
