Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and mostly sunny outside. Feeling a bit better today. Each day it seems to heal a little better. Just over 4 weeks since I fell. I pulled up the last of the Tomato Plants. They produced all kinds of Tomatoes for us and the neighbors! Later I washed down the deck. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Dinner Rolls.

 

Chicken Strips always sound good for Dinner, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

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! I also had some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips
This fully cooked meal makes for a great ready-to-cook entrée that tastes as good as it is easy to make! Serve Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips with your favorite sauce or marinade to bring out their incredibly savory flavor.

Today’s Menu: Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast and a 1/2 of a Cake Donut. We have suffered through some Hot and Very Humid weeks of weather here. Today it was perfect! A high of 78 degrees, Sunny and no Humidity! It was perfect! I’ve felt real good today, best day in a while. I went with a friend of mine out today. First we hit the produce Markets out in Ross, Ohio. Then she wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s Market. It felt so good to be out! For Dinner tonight I had Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I picked up the Pork Cubed Steak from Walmart. To prepare them I just seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them both in some Flour. I prepared them in a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. As the skillet heated I added a tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the Cubed Steak and cooked them 2 minutes a side. As I said they were small and not very thick so they were done quickly. Pork Cubed Steak is so much better than Beef Cubed Steak! Cooks easier and it’s not as stringy as Beef can be, and it has less calories.

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Russet Potato. Seasoned and topped with Salt, Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

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

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another hot and humid day out there. We have a high of 88 degrees and the humidity almost as high. Rain showers by late afternoon. A heavy thunderstorm moved in late yesterday. Heavy rain and strong winds. As the storm passed us it got worse, a tornado and it caused a lot of damage to a County next to ours. So after my Tea I watered the Tomato and Pepper Plants. After Lunch I took a friend to a local Home Depot. 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 the other day. 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 preheat the broiler. Pat the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Place skin side down on a 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 the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans from last night. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites for sure! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. – Wikipedia

Rainbow trout is packed with protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as potassium – all of which can help to manage high blood pressure, improve muscle strength and boost metabolism. Rainbow trout are loaded with phosphorus, and a good source of Vitamins B6, B12, pantothenic acid, and selenium.

 

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from quality potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you’ll never have to worry about freezer burn. Fresh, delicious potatoes mean you never have to sacrifice great homemade taste.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 88 degrees, sunny, but not as humid. I had to be at the hospital at 7:45 this morning for my scans. They took them of my liver, lungs, and bladder. I showed a little blood in my urine when I went to the Urologist a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it’s nothing serious! Then I had to have Mom over to the treatment center to check and see if they cleared up all the skin cancer. He was really pleased with it! All of it’s gone but 1 small spot. We go to the Dermatologist in July and he’ll decide to whether to remove it by radiation or just to remove it surgically. Sort of a stressful day. For dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steaks left in the freezer so I grabbed them out of the freezer last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. What beautiful cuts of Buffalo these Steaks are, so lean and delicious. I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. 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 2 minutes. Then turned it once and cooked for 2 more minutes. Then I put the skillet in the oven and finished the Steak in the oven. I had to keep it in the oven a bit longer than normal because it’s a thick Steak.

 

The Steak came out a beautiful Medium Rare! 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 heated up a Quart of our Canned Green Beans. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a with Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 10 OZ. NEW YORK STRIP STEAK
A classic American favorite, lean and luscious. This steak is cut from the short loin and is extremely tender and flavorful. The New York Strip Steak will always take center stage on any grill. 10 oz.

Today’s Menu: Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 81 degrees, humid with rain showers out today. After Breakfast got my morning workout in, showered, and did a load of laundry. Later I watered the plants and garden. My Strawberries are coming in now, picked quite a few early this morning. The Tomatoes are getting big, but none ripe yet. The Peppers are the same way. Gave the kitchen a good cleaning. Then kicked back and caught up on some shows I recorded. For Dinner tonight I had Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I picked up the Pork Cubed Steak from Walmart. I prepared a couple of these for Breakfast a while back, they were delicious. So I ‘m preparing a couple more for Dinner.

 

To prepare them I just seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them both in some Flour. I prepared them in a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my morning. Heavy rain overnight into the morning until about Noon. 73 degrees and cloudy after the rain moved out. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then I cleaned the house, dusted , mopped and ran the sweeper. Later I got the cart out of the shed and took a spin around the neighborhood. My cart is getting old, I’ve had it for 14 years now. I may need a new one before long. For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

For the Chicken I used Katie’s Best Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs. We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook for another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry them with a paper towel. 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 had opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and had them already heating up. I love these Green Beans. They always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For me the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes and Green Beans can’t be beat! For a Dessert/Snack I had a Sugar Free Jello Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

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

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf to start my day off. 70 degrees and cloudy out today. Happy Memorial Day Weekend to everyone! So after my Tea I took my Mom and Cousins to the Cemetery and we decorated my Aunt, Grand Parents and Dad’s graves with flowers. We swept and cleaned up around all the grave sites. Back home did a little yard work. 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 90 Calorie Cup Of Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Buffalo Breakfast Sausage Patties, a slice of Aunt Millie’s 1 Calorie Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Tea. I used the Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage. It comes in a 1 lb. package and I form the Patties. These came out delicious, another great Buffalo Product from Wild Idea Buffalo! Outside it’s 43 degrees and cloudy out, the wind made it feel a lot colder at times. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s, her favorite! Then at 1:00 I had to take her for a hearing test. She needs new hearing aids. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Green Beans and Dinner Rolls.

 

I bought a Pork Tenderloin while at Kroger along with some Chicken Thighs. I’m having the Pork Tenderloin for Dinner tonight. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it, preheat the oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

For one side I prepared some Roasted Cauliflower. I love Cauliflower but it’s been tough to find up until the last week or so. I can find them now at Meijer or Kroger, this bag came from Meijer. To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish I opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans in Sea Salt. Just emptied the can into a small saucepan and heated to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer, heat until heated through. I also had some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. You can’t beat these Rolls. 35 calories and 2 net carbs per roll! For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees and mostly sunny outside today! What a beautiful day. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then headed outside for the afternoon. I washed down the shed and then the outdoor deck. I got the cart out of the shed and then gave it a good cleaning. Pitched a few things and gave away a few items. It feels so good to be outside and in 70 degree weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Chicken Strips sounded good for Dinner, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

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! I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Bread. For Dessert later a Dole Sliced Peaches Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips
This fully cooked meal makes for a great ready-to-cook entrée that tastes as good as it is easy to make! Serve Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips with your favorite sauce or marinade to bring out their incredibly savory flavor.
