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.

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. 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. 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.

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

To start this Morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam, also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One HOT day out there today, it was 98 degrees at 5:00 this afternoon. Anyway I went to Kroger after Breakfast, at least around here the stores are having less and less items on the shelves. The Meat department had a good selection as the Dairy Department but canned goods and frozen foods were really low! Too hot to be out there today for me. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread.

I had purchased the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger earlier today. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Salmon w/ Long Grain & Wild Rice and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg. Then I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and served the Poached Egg on 1/2 of it. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees and a passing Thunderstorm with some strong winds. Rain on and off throughout the day. After Breakfast I washed Mom’s bed linens and pillow cases. Later on cleaned and straightened the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Salmon w/ Long Grain & Wild Rice and Cut Green Beans.

 

I picked up a Wild Caught North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Kroger and had it in the Freezer, sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’ll be seasoning it with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Dried Dill, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it I’ll be grilling it in a Fish Fillet Grill Basket.

 

I had forgot I had a Fish Grill Basket. I had it stored in the shed and came across it the other day when I was moving things around. Cleaned it up and it was ready to go. To start I seasoned my Salmon. Then went out and started the grill. Back inside I put some Extra Light Olive Oil on the Basket. Next I got my Salmon loaded into the Grill Basket. With the Grill heated I set the Grill Basket into the Grill and shut the lid. After 3 minutes I flipped the Grill Basket to the other side of the Salmon. That’s why I like these Grill Baskets, just flip them over to grill the other side of your Fish. I cooked that side for about 3 minutes and shut the Grill off and removed the Grill Basket from inside the Grill.

The Salmon came out Grilled perfectly! Heated just right to where the Salmon was just starting to flake. Delicious! Grilling Salmon is the way to go!

 

 

 

To go with the Salmon I prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect.

 

 

I also opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I heated them up in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Stirred often until heated, then served.I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Atlantic Salmon
The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast it was Skillet Diced 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 it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees and partly sunny out there today. After Breakfast I went to Walmart. I bought some Throw rugs for in front of the couch and chairs. Also for the bathrooms. I also bought 3 Tomato plants and a couple of Herb plants. Got the cart out and planted all of them on the side of the shed. 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 Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

I had purchased the Catfish Nuggets from Meijer the other day. 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.

 

 

We had some Green Beans leftover from the other night and heated those up. I also 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast it was Skillet Diced 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 it with a an Egg Sunny Side Up and sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good Breakfast! Mostly cloudy with a passing light shower, 57 degrees out today. After Lunch I went to the Dollar Tree for a gift card and Birthday Card for my cousin, turning 13. She loves the Dollar Tree so we got a gift card for there for her. Nothing else going on today, boring day! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

I had purchased a few Rainbow Trout Fillets at Meijer and them in the freezer. I laid a package of 1 fillet of them 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 Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning

Ingredients

Salt, Dextrose, Spices (Including Red Pepper, Paprika), Garlic, Sugar, Onion, Disodium Inosinate And Guanylate (Flavor Enhancers), Extractives Of Paprika, And Natural Flavors.
