Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 78 degrees and rain on and off all day. A good day to stay in and that’s what I did. After my Tea I did a load of laundry. Then off to lay down for a while. My Sinuses are running wild with this change in the weather and I’ve had a bad headache since late last night. Nothing I can do except wait it out, it will pass. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 

I purchased the Walleye at Meijer and it in the freezer. I placed it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I 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 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!

 

For one 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. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in 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 another side I prepared a Baked Potato. 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 baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and a Skillet of Cornbread

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and a skillet of Cornbread

 

For Breakfast I prepared a AdapTable Thin Cut Pork Chop, love these Pork Chops, and some Simply Potato SouthWest Style Shredded Hash Browns. I haven’t tried the SouthWest Style and they were really good! They are Seasoned with Onion, Green and Red Peppers, Jalapeños, and Spices. Try them, you’ll love them! It’s Garbage Day in the morning so I did a purge of the shed. I’m throwing out quite a bit, neighbors took a few items. Good thing is we have more storage. Long day and my back is killing me. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese and a skillet of Cornbread.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with my Catfish I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese!

 

I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. Mom loves Cornbread so I made it for her. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small Cast Iron Skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Coke 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

Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread (Oh My)

Today’s Menu: Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. High of 76 degrees, mostly sunny and windy out today. A beautiful day to start this 4th of July Weekend! I went to Kroger for Mom after my Tea. Then I stopped by the bank for her and picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for her. Back home I did a little yard work and then just enjoyed this beautiful day! Rode the cart around the neighborhood. Later gave a neighbor a hand painting his deck. I’m starting a new tradition, Meatless Friday. At least for this Friday! I prepared Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread.

 

When we went to Jungle Jim’s last week we loaded up on Vegetables and Fruits. So Mom had prepared some of the 1/2 Runner Green Beans yesterday. So I’m heating up the leftovers for my Dinner tonight.

 

 

For the Corn, we purchased a dozen Ears of Yellow and White Sweetcorn. For that I boiled an Ear of it until done. Then when ready to eat I sliced the Kernels of Corn off and served it like that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Potatoes, they were Russet Potatoes that we purchased at Jungle Jim’s also. Mom had already prepared those by peeling them, slicing, and boiling. I just reheat them and serve. Seasoned with Salt, Pepper, and Butter.

 

 

Finally for the Cornbread, Mom had prepared that yesterday. So I just heated that up and cut a slice of it, added Butter and ready to eat. So I got off pretty easy, I just heated everything up and served! I like going Meatless on a Friday, at least this Friday1 For Dessert later a 90 Calorie Cup of Breyer’s Chocolate Ice Cream. Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Fresh green beans – For the best source of nutrients and lowest sodium, choose fresh or frozen greens beans for cooking. Green beans also contain folate, thiamin, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, and potassium.

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet corn – Sweet corn is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast on this cold and snowy Thursday morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside a high of 87 degrees with rain and thunderstorms on and off all day. Well we finally can get out again without worry from the Chinese Covid Virus and can’t even enjoy it for the Cicadas and heat and humidity! No Breaks lately! So for Dinner tonight my Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! I guess if you can’t get out Chicken and Dumplings are the way to go! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes. Not the best Dinner for calories and carbs but having 1 time every 4 months or so doesn’t hurt.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made Mom Cornbread, Mom loves Cornbread! I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight!

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of All Bran Wheat Flakes along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A lot of rain and high winds overnight into the morning hours before easing up. For the afternoon it started in the 50’s but dropped to the 40’s as the day went on. Did a load of laundry and then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. Not much else to do today. So its a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken.

Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

For Breakfast this morning I Fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, heated up 3 slices of al fresco Chicken Bacon, and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It started raining last night around 9:00 and continued to rain all day. Had a high of 49 degrees. Mom’s blood work came back showing no major problems. They did change one of her medications though. So I went to Kroger to pick up the prescription. We have a lot of creeks and ditches that are overflowing from all the rain. Back home did some clean up work on the computer. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 

I purchased the Walleye at Meijer and it in the freezer. I placed it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I 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 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!

 

For one 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. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in 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 another side I prepared a Baked Potato. 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 baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
