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.

 

 

 

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 Sprite 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

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I headed out to Walmart after Breakfast. A salute to Walmart and the safety precautions that they are taking to keep customers safe. Great Job Walmart! Stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. I wasn’t too active today my Sinuses got the best of me today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer earlier in the week. To to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of 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 chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

I wanted Green Beans but Mom wanted Butternut Squash, so you know what I prepared! So I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 2 small packages of Diced Butternut Squash at Meijer. 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, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 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! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

I also prepared a small can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, one of Mom’s favorites. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.

 

 

 

 

Butternut squash…………
Butternut squash, sometimes known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma, is a type of winter squash that grows on a vine. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has tan-yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds in the blossom end. Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a 2 Egg Cheese Omelet and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees and sunny outside today. After Breakfast did a couple of loads of laundry. Then on outside to get some yard work done. Got my cart out of the shed and finished raking the back yard. Then sprayed for weeds around the house and deck. For Dinner tonight a real Comfort Food, Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

I didn’t have much of an appetite tonight and Mom didn’t want anything heavy. So Mom loves Chili and Cheese Nachos, as I do! So Nachos it is tonight! To make them I’ll need: Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack, they bake and hold their shape better than most chips. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, sliced up some Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. Put all that together and it’s nothing but good Nachos! I especially love the Jalapenos, nice mild heat!

To prepare I preheated the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I first opened up 2 cans of the Hormel Chili with Beans and heated them up in a sauce pan, as it was heating I added about 6 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and mixed. After the Chili was ready I added 4 tablespoons of Chili to the baking dish, then I added my Scoops (Chips). I then added the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. We love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! For Dessert later a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take care and Stay safe all!

Today’s Menu: Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 81 degrees and mostly sunny out today. After Tea I had to go back to Meijer for a few items for Mom and to grab a few items I forgot to get there the other day. Back home got the cart out and did a little yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese.

I had no clue on Dinner tonight! Then while at Meijer I came across of Salmon Bites or Pieces. It was a small package of just odd and end pieces of Salmon they had leftover and they packaged them up. They looked good so I grabbed a package.To make the Salmon I’ll need; the Salmon Pieces, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

To prepare it; I first preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I seasoned the Salmon Fillet with 1/2 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, Grinder Sea Salt and Creole Seasoning. I put the Fillet in the pan; skin side down. Baked it for 13 minutes; until done and fork flaky. The Salmon came out perfect! Done just right with excellent seasoning. I had also bought a jar of Desert Pepper Peach Mango Salsa to put on the Salmon. Excellent Salsa!

To go with my Salmon I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. And they finally have the Diet Dr. Pepper back in stock, small 12 oz. Plastic Bottles of it.

Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

 

 

To start the day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea also. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After my Tea I went Kroger and then Meijer for a few items. On the way back home I stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom at Wendy’s. Later on took Mom’s car up and had it washed and stopped and got gas. Back home got the shop vac out and vacuumed her car. For Dinner tonight its a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

I had the 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin in the freezer and sat a couple of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious! I always try to have a supply of them in the freezer. To prepare it I turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Next I rubbed the Steak with a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and the Wild Idea Omnivore Salt. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet. When the Skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 2 minutes on 1 side and flipped it over and cooked it another 1 minute. Then I moved the Cast Iron to the oven to finish cooking. It came out to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender.

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. I just love the trio of the Wild Idea Buffalo Steak, Baked Potato, and Texas Toast! plus it’s Mom Approved! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries

 

To start the day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and sunny out today. It was about 53 degrees this morning when I rolled out to grab the morning papers. Got some yard work done today, a beautiful day just to be outside! Later cleaned up the grill a bit to use for Dinner. For Dinner tonight Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries.

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! I had the Burger in the freezer so I laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. Used a Paper Towel and rubbed it in some Extra Light Olive Oil. Then rubbed the Grill Grate down with it. Then fired up the Grill! Seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. With the Grill heated I started grilling. I grilled the Buffalo Burger and Brat and Mett for Mom. I grilled the Burger about 3 minutes and flipped it over. After 2 minutes I added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar and cooked it another 1 minute and done! Served the Burger on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Products are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger! Plus that added flavor by grilling it.

To go with my Burger I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

 

 

For Breakfast 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. A high of 79 degrees and rain in the morning and partly sunny for the afternoon. I had a rough night last night dealing with Phantom Pains all night into the morning. They were bad ones so I got little to no sleep. So I spent most of the day catching up on some sleep. Luckily I had an easy Dinner to prepare, Leftovers! I heated up the leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. I left the original post from yesterday below for instructions and description. Stay Safe and Take Care All!

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

We love these Naan Bread Pizzas so much! These are so easy to fix and so delicious! I had a package of Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. For my toppings for the Pizza I’m using Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausage, Black Olives, Green Olives, Oscar Mayer Hickory Smoked Bacon Bits, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Traditional Pizza Sauce. I love this Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread, it tastes so fresh and bakes up perfect!

I first Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam No Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I opened up a roll of the Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausage. I cut off a slice of it and crumbled up. Added it to the heated skillet and fried Sausage Crumbles. When they were browned and heated through removed them from the skillet into a small bowl until ready to use.

With the oven preheated I lined the Naan Bread to the baking sheet and baked it for 2 minutes. When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the Ragu Pizza Sauce. Next slices of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni. Then the Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Crumbles, next the Black and Green Sliced Olives, Lite House Dried Oregano, Oscar Mayer Bacon Bits, and finally the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 8 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pulled the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. With the first bite you’ll know the Naan Bread is the perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust has excellent taste and bakes up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizzas. Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. I keep a couple of packs of the Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread and keep them in the freezer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink. Stay Safe and Take Care All!
