Today’s Menu: Seared Scallops and Fried Skate w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I had a another of the Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Cup – Turkey sausage Crumbles, Egg Whites, Shredded Cheddar Cheese. What a change in weather! The last 2 days it’s been a high of 68 degrees and rain, today it was 12 degrees this morning and a high of 27 degrees and sunny! 41 degree difference. After Breakfast I bundled up and headed to Meijer for a few items. On the way back home stopped by the ATM, got gas, and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home it was back to bed and rested, still lingering Sinus Infection but it’s getting better. For Dinner tonight a Seafood Special! I prepared Seared Scallops and Fried Skate w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I was planning on just having the Winter Skate Fillet but as I was getting that out of the freezer a small package of Sea Scallops fell out of the freezer so I took that as a sign that I should have the Scallops also! I purchased the Winter Skate from the Sea to Table website while the Sea Scallops are from Kroger.

 

 

 

 

 


To make the Dish I’ll need; 1/4 cup of 2% Milk, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs for dredging, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare them I put the skate fillet in a large dish. Poured the milk over them and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to turn the fillets in the milk so they are coated on both sides. Then I scattered the Bread Crumbs over a large dish. Lightly dredge the fillets in the Bread Crumbs on both sides.

 

 

 

 

With fillet breaded I heated the Olive Oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, I added one of the fillets. Saute on one side until it was golden brown, about 3 minutes. Then turn and cook on the other side until golden brown, about 3 minutes more. They came out beautiful! And I have a found a new Seafood to have! These are so good. They fried up very easy and have a very fresh taste, their taste is similar to scallops. I love this Skate!

 

 

 

 


I used Kroger Seafood Sea Scallops. I took a Cast Iron Skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, also added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and 1 table spoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. Heated it up on medium high. Then I washed the Scallops in cold water and patted them dry with a paper towel. I’ll be using Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. In a small microwavable bowl I melted a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then dipped the Scallops in the Butter one at a time, just buttering the tops and bottoms of the Scallop. Then I took about 2 tablespoons of the Blackened Seasoning and put it in a small bowl, and took the Scallops one at a time and pressed the top and bottom of each Scallop into the Seasoning. I had my skillet already heated up, added the Scallops and cooked each Scallop 3 minutes per side. As the Scallops were cooking I cut a Lemon in half and squirted a little Lemon Juice across the tops of them. They turned out delicious! The freshness of the Scallops, the butter, Lemon, and Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning gave them an incredible flavor.

 

 


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.

 

 

 

 

 


I warmed up the leftover Canned Green Beans from last night’s Dinner. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! For Dessert later A Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

Sea to Table – Atlantic Winter Skate

Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

Why We Love It: Loved by chefs and New England fishermen alike, Skate wings are sweet like scallops, delicate but firm like lobster, and often compared to flounder and sole. These skin-off fillets are hand trimmed and fan-shaped, so they make for a uniquely beautiful and delicious plate.
Cooking Tip: For a classic French-inspired meal, pan sauté in a butter and caper sauce, sprinkle with parsley and serve with asparagus and roasted potatoes. Get the recipe.
Where It’s From: This Winter Skate is caught off the shores of Chatham, Massachusetts — a fishing town at the elbow of Cape Cod. With an ever-growing stock level, Winter Skate is rated as a Good Alternative by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch.
Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our fishermen partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.

Sea Scallops
Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. “One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories,” says Bowden. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium. (Clams and oysters provide similar benefits.)

Today’s Menu: Bread Crumb Crusted Fried Atlantic Winter Skate w/ Roasted Asparagus and Sliced Potatoes

 

 

 

To start this Saturday morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried up 4 slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Fried an Egg, and made a Breakfast Sandwich. I topped the Ham and Egg with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 34 degrees with passing snow flurries. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Back home it was laundry day, did a couple of loads. Then cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bread Crumb Crusted Fried Atlantic Winter Skate w/ Roasted Asparagus and Sliced Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

I have been wanting to try Skate since I read about it a while back. It’s tough to find but I found some on the Sea to Table website (https://www.sea2table.com/). I’ve left some info on the Sea to Table website at the end of the post. So glad I came across this site they have a good selection of Seafood; Atlantic Sea Scallops, West Coast Dover Sole, Northwest Pacific Cod, and Atlantic Winter Skate. I ordered the West Coast Dover Sole and the Atlantic Winter Skate, and can not wait to try them both! I’m having the Skate for Dinner tonight. All products come frozen and delivered in excellent packaging. There is 2 Fillets per package, I’m having one for Dinner and froze the other one.

 

 

 

 

To make the Dish I’ll need; 1/4 cup of 2% Milk, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs for dredging, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare them I put the skate fillet in a large dish. Poured the milk over them and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to turn the fillets in the milk so they are coated on both sides. Then I scattered the Bread Crumbs over a large dish. Lightly dredge the fillets in the Bread Crumbs on both sides.

 

 

 

 

With fillet breaded I heated the Olive Oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, I added one of the fillets. Saute on one side until it was golden brown, about 3 minutes. Then turn and cook on the other side until golden brown, about 3 minutes more. They came out beautiful! And I have a found a new Seafood to have! These are so good. They fried up very easy and have a very fresh taste, their taste is similar to scallops. I’ll definitely be having this again!

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared some Roasted Asparagus.To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt, grated Black Peppercorn, Lemon Juice, and grated 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 Grated Reduced Fat Parm Cheese before serving.

 

 

 

 

For a 2nd 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. Excellent Meal tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn

 

 

To start morning off I made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 38 degrees out this morning and partly sunny. Had a high of 55 degrees and clouds in the afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Meijer, Mom needed a few things. Stopped by the ATM, got gas, and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I had to get the cart out of the shed along withe rake. The official Leaves Drop has began! Filled up a large Hefty Bag Yard Bag up. Just one of many upcoming leaf raking days ahead! For Dinner tonight its Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn.

 

 

 

 


I purchased a package of Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger the other day and having them tonight for Dinner. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

 

 


To start I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with 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. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 8 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes.

 

 

 

 


I got a plate and put paper towel on it and removed the Chicken Thighs from the skillet to the lined plate. Paper towel absorbs any of the excess oil. Just love the crust on the Chicken provided by the Flour Coating! The Flour and cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet. The Chicken Thighs were moist and flat out delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 


For another side dish I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Roasted Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Not quite as cold this morning! 40 degrees. Sunny and 52 degrees for the day. After Lunch I got the Cart out of the shed and went over and borrowed my neighbor’s Shrub Trimmer. Trimmed down 4 Shrubs around the house for the upcoming Winter. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner Tonight, Comfort Food! I prepared a Roasted Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast Tenderloin w/ Sliced New Potatoes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

I had purchased the Jennie – O Applewood Smoke Flavor Turkey Breast Tenderloin from Meijer and had it in the freezer. Sat it in fridge to thaw overnight. Meijer is the only store that carries this and most of the other Jennie – O Turkey Products. The Turkey Tenderloin comes pre-seasoned and is 100 calories, 4 carbs, and 99% fat-free. Besides this beautiful Tenderloin all I’ll need to prepare it is some McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Blackberry Glaze, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon.

 

 

 


First I mixed my Blackberry Glaze and set it aside until ready to use. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post. To prepare the Tenderloin I’ll be baking it. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Next sprayed a shallow baking pan with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and add a tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil to it. Then place the Tenderloins in the baking pan. With about 10 minutes of cooking time left I Glazed on of the Tenderloins. Bake until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of the meat reaches 165°F, approximately 62 minutes. Remove from the oven, cover and let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing.

 

 


Started slicing it and it’s so very tender and moist. It has a fantastic taste. The Applewood Smoke and combination of Spices it was marinated in was perfect! Good job Jennie- O. For the added Blackberry Glaze , it was perfect! It went with the Turkey perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 


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.

 

 

 

 

 


For another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans of any kind every day and never get tired of having them.Finally I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Love this Bread! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

Jennie – O Applewood Smoke Flavor Turkey Breast Tenderloin

Today’s Menu: Bison New York Strip and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom then. I had to be at our Family Lawyers Office at 10:00 to finalize my Living Will. Stopped by Kroger afterward to pick up a couple of items for Mom. For Dinner tonight a Bison New York Strip and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans

 

 


I prepared the Buffalo Gal Bison New York Strip and Sauteed Mushrooms with Sliced New Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans back in August and the 3 worked and tasted so good together I’m having it again for Dinner tonight. To prepare the Steak I’ll need; McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Extra Light Olive Oil, and 1 Cast Iron Skillet! I’ll be preparing the Steak by frying it in a Cast Iron Skillet.

 

 

 

To prepare it I start by adding a 1/2 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil and preheating the Cast Iron Skillet on high heat. Next I Salted and Peppered the Steak, brushed with a little of the Butter, then placed in the heated Skillet. I let it sear on the high heat for about 4 minutes. Then turned it once using tongs. Continued cooking on the high heat for about another 2 minutes for a perfect medium rare steak. They say key is to get the sear on one side first and do not flip back and forth, just one time. Then I let Steak rest 15 minutes before slicing.

 

 


And once again what a flavorful and juicy Bison New York Strip Steak, I’ll have to order some more of these soon! Served it with Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

 

 


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.

 

 

 

 


Then for a second side I prepared a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. It doesn’t get much better for a canned Beans than these! To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are at the top of the list, love the Seasoning. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

 

To start this Monday off I toasted a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Chilly morning out there this morning with fog. Only a high of 66 degrees and cloudy with a shower or two. After I had Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Afterward I went to Meijer and by Kroger grocery shopping. Back home I took care of Mom most of the day. She wasn’t feeling good at all today.For Dinner tonight its a Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

I prepared one of my favorite cuts of Steak, the always tender Wild Idea Buffalo Terris Major Steak. I started by brushing it lightly with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley. I had the Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans a while back and loved the combinations so I’m having them again.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it I’m using a Cast iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat and also turned the oven on to 400 degrees. With the Steak Seasoned and Skillet heated i added the Steak to the Cast Iron. Cooked it about 1 1/2 minutes a side and then put into the oven to finish. That’s a reason I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven! I want to get it to 145 degree internal temperature. Then I pulled it out of the oven and let it set for 5 minutes, to finish cooking and let that delicious juice return to the Steak. Came out a perfect medium rare, moist and delicious!

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer until heated. Easy and delicious Potato Side Dish.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans. Just heat the Beans in a small sauce pan to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cooked until heated. Then I also baked a loaf of Bakehouse Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Terres Major Fillet

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.

Then for a second side I prepared a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. It doesn’t get much better for a canned Beans than these! To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are at the top of the list, love the Seasoning. For Dessert/Snack later some slices of Boar’s Head Longhorn Colby Cheese along with Whole Wheat Saltine Crackers, good ole Cheese and Crackers!

 

 

 

 

Buffalo Gal – Bison New York Strips
A customer favorite. Cut thick and ideal for grilling. Receive 2 (7-9 oz.) steaks. (2 steaks per package, package is over 1 lb.)

Nutrition (8 oz.):
Fat: 4.8g, Calories: 260, Protein: 54g, Sodium: 180mg

Suggested Cooking Method:
Preheat your pan on high. Cast iron or non-stick. Salt and Pepper the meat, brush with a little butter, then place in the pan. Let it sear on the high heat for about 4 minutes. You will see the meat color change on the sides. Then turn once using tongs or turner to flip. Continue cooking on the high heat for about another 3 minutes for a perfect medium steak. 2 minutes for rare or 5 minutes for well done. The key is to get the sear on one side first and do not flip back and forth, just one time. Let meat rest 15 minutes before slicing.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Chicken Breast w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans, Sliced New Potatoes, and Baked Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Scrambled Eggs, 3 slices of al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it’s mostly cloudy and a high of 50 degrees. After Breakfast I went to Costco. First time here in a while. Bought a few items I needed and bought a couple of cases of canned Fruit and Vegetables. On the way home I dropped the cases off at Reach Out Lakota, food and shelter center here in West Chester. Then mailed a couple of letters and stopped by the ATM. Not a lot going on today, did a few things around the house then some work on my computer. For Dinner tonight its a Blackened Chicken Breast w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans, Sliced New Potatoes, and Baked Texas Toast.

 

I was at Kroger yesterday and picked up a package of Kroger Blackened Chicken Breast. It contained 1 Chicken Breast that was Seasoned with Blackened Spices. The only thing I added to prepare it was some McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I’ll be preparing it in a Cast Iron Skillet.

 

 

 

 

I started by heating the oven on 400 degrees. I sprayed the Cast Iron Skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Bertoli Extra Light Olive Oil. I heated the Skillet on medium heat. When the Skillet was heated I added the Chicken Breast. I seared it for 2 minutes per side. I then moved it to the oven. I love using Cast Iron Skillets. Not only do they hold heat and cook evenly but you can go from the stove on to the oven like I did with the Chicken. I continued cooking the Chicken for 10 minutes, flipping it over one time. Checked the Chicken with an internal meat thermometer, and it read 166 degrees. Took the Skillet out of the oven and let the Chicken rest for 3 minutes before serving. Excellent Blackened Seasoning and the Chicken came out moist and delicious. I’ll have to get another package of this sometime, enjoyed it.

 

 

As my Chicken was cooking I prepared my side dishes. I prepared a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. It doesn’t get much better for a canned Beans than these! To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are at the top of the list, love the Seasoning.

 

 

 


For another side dish 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. Finally I baked a slice of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Filet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy out all day and a high of 36 degrees. After Breakfast I went to the Kroger up the road for a few things and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. We are starting to have a lot of trouble with Dad. We would like to keep him here at home but as his dementia gets worse the harder it is to take care of him. Just hoping and praying for the best. Later on did some house cleaning and straightened up the Pantry. For Dinner tonight its a Buffalo Terres Major Filet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

I prepared one of my favorite cuts of Steak, the Wild Idea Buffalo Terris Major Steak. I started by brushing it lightly with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it I’m using a Cast iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat and also turned the oven on to 400 degrees. With the Steak Seasoned and Skillet heated i added the Steak to the Cast Iron. Cooked it about 1 1/2 minutes a side and then put into the oven to finish. That’s a reason I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven! I want to get it to 145 degree internal temperature. Then I pulled it out of the oven and let it set for 5 minutes, to finish cooking and let that delicious juice return to the Steak. Came out a perfect medium rare, moist and delicious!

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer until heated. Easy and delicious Potato Side Dish.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans. Just heat the Beans in a small sauce pan to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cooked until heated. Then I also baked a loaf of Bakehouse Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Terres Major Filet

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.

Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Diced New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some more of the Turkey Spam. I lightly fried a couple of slices along with some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outside a lot colder, 19 degrees this morning and 36 degrees for a high with snow flurries and a mix of snow and rain later in the day. I drove to the Dayton, Ohio Airport to pick a friend of mine that was flying in a couple of days to see his parents. His Mom is in the Hospital with the flu and his Dad isn’t much better. The Flu has really hit this are hard. My family has been real lucky so far, none of us has had it. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Diced New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

I purchased the Yellow Lake Perch from Meijer. I rinsed the Fillets in cold water then patted them dry and put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and on into the freezer. Last night I laid the bag in the fridge to thaw overnight. I love using Lake Perch, fries up a beautiful golden brown and like most fresh water fish has a fantastic taste.

 

 

 

 

I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and rolled the fillets in my favorite Breading Mix, Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, 3 minutes per side. They came out with a golden brown crust and delicious! My Mom has always said that I get my love of Fish from my Great Grandfather. Mom said they always knew he was coming to visit because my Grandmother would always fry up a big batch of Fish and a cast iron skillet of Cornbread, and doesn’t get any better than that!

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I boiled them until heated and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Finally I baked a loaf of River Road BakeHouse Artisan Multigrain Bread. It’s a new Multigrain Loaf Bread that I’ve had a couple of times now and really like having. I purchase it at Meijer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
