Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread

 

 

To start this rainy morning off I made some 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. The day started off with rain but had cleared up by noon, still windy and a high of 43 degrees. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread.

 

I bought the Catfish Nuggets from Meijer a while back 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 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. Then made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread, for Mom, using Martha White White Corn Meal. What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Dr. Pepper 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

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Prime Rib Sandwich and Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 38 degrees and cloudy out all day. Did laundry, cleaned the house and did a few things outdoors. Just not a lot going on again. For Dinner tonight I prepared the Leftovers, Prime Rib Sandwich and Green Beans. I sliced the remaining Prime Rib into nice size slices and made Sandwiches out of them. Served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun and topped with some Woeber’s Horseradish Mustard. I left the original post from last night for ingredients and cooking instructions. Take Care and Stay Safe All!

 

 

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at Costco. It’s a 3 1/2 lb. Heartland Farm Foods Sous Vide Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a foil lined baking pan for 40 minutes. Internal temperature of 100 degrees. Removed it from the pan to a serving dish.

 

 

The Prime Rib turned out perfect! Very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Rare to Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from Costco again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.

 

 

For a  side I heated up the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just reheat them in a small sauce pan and heat until heated through on medium heat. Ready to eat!

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at Costco. It’s a 3 1/2 lb. Heartland Farm Foods Sous Vide Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is more less is reheat it.

So to go with the Prime Rib I prepared some RESER’S MAIN STREET BISTRO – BAKED SHREDDED POTATO CASSEROLE. It comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven. As usual I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

 

 

Very easy to prepare. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Potatoes and loaded with flavor! Fantastic Potato item to have in the fridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Easy to prepare, just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat until heated through on medium heat. Ready to eat! Then I also baked a small can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Chocolate Topping. Stay Safe and Take Care, Happy New Year!

Today’s Menu: Fried Gulf of Maine Redfish w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. If you haven’t tried any of the Smucker’s Sugar Free Jams you need to give them a try. Fantastic taste, no difference in flavor than the ones with sugar. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 37 degrees and mostly cloudy outdoors today. Gave Mom a hand in taking down the Christmas Decorations and storing them. Later in the afternoon I took some late Christmas Gifts to a couple of friends and my cousins. Tonight for Dinner its Fried Gulf of Maine Redfish w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Being a Fish and Seafood Lover like I am, I’m sure glad I came across the Sea to Table website a while back. They have some fantastic selections of Fish and Seafood, be sure to check them out (https://www.sea2table.com/) Tonight I’m having the Gulf of Maine Redfish. Gulf of Maine Redfish is – This deep water New England classic — also known as the Snapper of the Northeast — has bright red skin and flaky meat that is slightly sweet. I haven’t had this in a while and they had it on sale so I purchased some along with some Dover Sole.

 

The Redfish came frozen, 4 – 3 oz. Fillets. I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare my Redfish I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I first seasoned them with the Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Bread Crumbs and let sit for 5 minutes. Next I got a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating up I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the 2 fillets. As they started cooking I drizzled a bit of Lemon Juice across both fillets along with Dried Parsley. I cooked them for 3 minutes then flipped them over and continued cooking them for another 3 minutes, until both sides were a beautiful golden brown.

 

The Redfish fried up perfect, with a nice crust. The Fish was as described; flaky with and light sweet taste to it. It fried up like Ocean Perch, it curled as you cooked it. The Fish is a real meaty fish, which I love. Excellent Fish, look forward to having the Dover Sole soon!

 

So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family loves these Potato Pancakes! I served them with a side of Daisy Light Sour Cream. They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers, perfect for Breakfast.

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sea to Table – Gulf of Maine Redfish
Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

Why We Love It: Restaurants and home cooks all over New England embrace Gulf of Maine Redfish for its mild, slightly sweet taste and flaky meat. This fish makes a great alternative to other white-meat fish like Snapper, and is perfect for a long list of recipes. Each fillet is hand-cut and boneless, and retains its tender, bright red skin that helps lock in moisture no matter how you cook it.

Cooking Tip: Cut the fillets into bite-sized pieces and combine with veggies, tomatoes and broth for a delicious bouillabaisse.
Where It’s From: Redfish made a triumphant return from being overfished in the Atlantic Ocean, and now thrive in the deep waters off the coasts of Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our supply partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread

 

 

To start this Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 38 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After my Tea me and Mom went to Jungle Jim’s International Market. Love going there, they have everything! The best Deli and Cheese Shop anywhere. And the Produce, Meat, and Seafood Departments you can find anywhere! It’s one amazing store. Back home I went and had my car washed and got gas. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread.

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on 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.

Today’s Menu: Fried White Lake Perch w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this beautiful morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I got the cart out of the shed and repaired the skirting around the back of the shed. Then I went around the yard and flower beds and sprayed for weeds. The raked the backyard, the leaves are falling! Took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed this beautiful Early Fall Day! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried White Lake Perch w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had a bag in the freezer. Sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw. A couple of weeks ago had this same combination of the White Perch and Potato Puffs. It was so good I’m having it again! To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I’ll be seasoning them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix. First Salted them and then put the Fillets in a plastic bag and added the Breading. Shook the bag until the Fillets were covered.

 

Then added a few of them to the preheated skillet. I fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out a golden brown! The Perch was delicious, just love fresh water fish as I do all Fish. Meijer is about the only store that carries the White Perch and they also will have Yellow Lake Perch from time to time.

 

For one 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.

 

 

Next I heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Also baked up a couple of slices New York Bakery Texas Toast – Light. For Dessert I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Bison Chopped Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Cut Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Bison Chopped Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 83 degrees, mostly cloudy, and a passing shower. Slow day today, just not a lot to do or going on. Just did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bison Chopped Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Cut Green Beans.

 

For Dinner tonight it’s one of our favorites, SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. But sadly the place that I order these from will no longer have these in stock. Sad, Sad, Sad! We love these Chopped Steaks. To start I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. To prepare it I’ll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, McCormick Crushed Rosemary, and McCormick Thyme Leaves (all seasoning to taste). I got the Cast Iron Skillet out to prepare it. I first sprayed it with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the pan was heated I added the Chopped Steak. I cooked each side 2 minutes.Then finished it in the oven, at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. It cooked up beautifully, perfect medium rare! Had a nice little char on the outside and moist and juicy inside. These are so tender you could slice them with a spoon and have an excellent taste to them.

 

I topped the Chopped Steak with some A-1 Sauce Thick/Hardy. Also prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! And this too has quickly become a favorite. I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. 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, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 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!

 

Next I heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Also baked up a couple of slices New York Bakery Texas Toast – Light. For Dessert I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chopped Bison Sirloin

SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak
If you like the flavor of the sirloin, love the Bison Burger but want to take it up a notch, then the Chopped Sirloin Steak is for you! 4 lbs (4 packages each with 2-8oz chopped sirloin steaks).
Great flavor of the sirloin but also extremely tender and juicy.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 93 degrees, humid and partly sunny out there today. After Tea I had to follow Mom and she dropped her car off to get the oil changed and to check out a noise it’s been making. Hopefully nothing major! We stopped by Kroger afterward. Not a lot going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet, that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. I’m glad I bought as much Rainbow Trout and Walleye as I could because it’s tough to find some now. So I laid the package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Dish! I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites for sure! For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread

 

 

To start this Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees, rain showers, and humid. outdoors today. My allergies and sinuses were a lot better today, thankfully! I was starting to get a little worried. Cleaned and straightened up the shed today. Then later Mom wanted to go to Walgreen’s so I took her up there and back home.

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 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’ve loved these all my life! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on high.

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

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread

 

 

 

To start this Morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees and mostly sunny outside. After my Tea I did a load of laundry for Mom. Then got the cart out and took a spin around the neighborhood before it got too hot out. Also did a little yard work while I had the cart out. After Lunch I took Mom out to Ross to where we bought the fresh Vegetables. She wanted some tomatoes, corn, peaches, and a cantaloupe. That was my day. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread.

 

We had this meal a few weeks back and Mom wanted to have it again, who am I to say no! I had purchased the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger yesterday. 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 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’ve loved these all my life! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on 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. Then made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread, for Mom, using Martha White White Corn Meal. Made this for Mom, she could have Cornbread with every meal What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks with a Coke Zero to drink.
