Baked Cod Casserole
Dry white wine and Gruyère cheese give this fish casserole a rich flavor that hides its virtue. Before baking, we top the dish with seasoned whole-wheat breadcrumbs, which add a wholesome, nutty flavor and dietary fiber. For variety, you can substitute almost any mild white fish………..

Egg and Sausage Casserole
A dozen for brunch? No problem with our delicious makeover of a classic egg casserole. Assemble the casserole the evening before you plan to serve it………….

Chicken “Carne” Adovada
Here we braise chicken thighs in a brick-red chile sauce. This dish is even tastier the next day. Serve with flour tortillas and, though it’s not traditional, we like the contrast of creamy avocado with it………..

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fresh Green Beans and AppleWood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole

 

 

To start the morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. No appetite this morning. After my Tea and morning workout I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I headed back out and went to Menard’s. I’m looking for a battery operated weed trimmer. Stopped off at the Post Office and mailed a few letters for Mom. Partly sunny and humid out today, high of 84 degrees. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fresh Green Beans and AppleWood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole.

 

 

 

While at Meijer a while back I bought a few fillets of Walleye. I had used a couple of them and had the last one in the freezer. So I grabbed that bag and sit in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

For a side I cooked up the last bag of the fresh Green Beans for Dinner last night. Boiled them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Reheating the leftovers tonight. Love these fresh Green Beans!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also prepared a box of Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole. Like the other Idahoan dishes their a breeze to prepare and a delicious Potato Dish. And like the others this turned out fantastic! Very well seasoned, and you can taste that Applewood bacon flavor. I love my Potatoes! I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Oyster Stew
This oyster stew can be transformed from a comforting one-pot meal to an elegant dish for guests when you top it with Caviar Toasts: Dollop toasted slices of baguette with 1 teaspoon sour cream, ½ teaspoon caviar and a sprinkle of herbs. Place each toast atop a steaming bowl of stew. Serve with a salad of butter lettuce, orange segments and red onion tossed with vinaigrette………………..

Oysters Rockefeller
Invented at Antoine’s in New Orleans in 1889, oysters Rockefeller was named for John D. Rockefeller, one of the richest Americans at the time, for its rich sauce. Antoine’s has kept the original recipe secret, but basically it includes a cream sauce with spinach and other greens, flavored with Pernod or anisette. This version omits the cream sauce but is still full of flavor………….

Cioppino
Cioppino is a fish stew traditionally made by Italian fishermen who settled in the North Beach/Fisherman’s Wharf section of San Francisco. It was originally made on fishing boats with whatever fish were at hand. This cioppino comes to us from California chef and cooking teacher John Ash, who has been an advocate for sustainable-food issues for years and has served on the board of advisors of Seafood Watch—the advocacy arm of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Ash chose a variety of shellfish for this recipe, all of which are Seafood Watch Best Choices or Good Alternatives…………….

Seasoned Haddock w/ Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta

 

To start this morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and made the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Walgreen’s and picked up a Prescription and then to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. It really hasn’t rained a lot of late and the yards are starting to turn brown. Outside today it’s 87 degrees and sunny. After Lunch got the cart out and did some yard work. Later took a spin around the neighborhood. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Haddock w/ Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta.

 

 

I had purchased a Haddock fillet from Kroger a while back and had it in the freezer. I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I sliced it in half. So to prepare it I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until both pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.

 

To go with my Seasoned Haddock I prepared a new dish, Knorr Pasta Sides Cheesy Cheddar Rotini Pasta. I had heard of the Knorr Products but had never tried them until now. To prepare it; In medium saucepan, bring 1-1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup 2% milk and 1 Tbsp. of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Stir in contents of package and return to a boil. Reduce heat and continue boiling gently for 10 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally. Let stand at least 2 minutes. Stir and serve. Easy to prepare and delicious! Excellent Pasta with good Cheese flavor. I also baked a loaf of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Rainbow Trout w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and served. High of 88 degrees with passing showers outside. Not a lot going on today. Before it rained I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then went in the shed and swept it out. Trimmed the vines along the driveway, thing grows way too fast! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Rainbow Trout w/ Savory Herb Potatoes, Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

Kroger had a few their Fish on sale and one of the ones I purchased was a couple of Rainbow Trout Fillets. I rinsed them both off in cold water, froze one and kept the other one out for Dinner tonight. To prepare it; Melted a couple of tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillet down with the butter. Then seasoned it with a bit of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and then with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning, rubbing the Blackened Seasoning in till both sides of the Trout until covered. Heated up the Cast Iron Skillet and fried the fillet. Always have your overhead stove fan on when Blackening, it will create the smoke! I started by frying it skin side down about 3 minutes then flipping it over and frying it another 3 minutes, looks perfect! Not only looked good but was delicious. Came out so flavorful and fork tender. Just love Blackened Fish, always just an incredible taste and smokieness.

 

 

For one side dish I prepared the Little Potato Co. Savory Herb Potatoes. We love these! The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

 

For another side I heated up a can of Green Giant Steam Crisp Extra Sweet Niblets Whole Kernel Corn. One of my favorite canned corn, delicious Sweet Corn.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 Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not as hot today, had a high of 83 degrees. Finished painting in the shed and moved a few things around. That was about it for the day. I’m dealing with my allergies and sinuses today. For Dinner tonight Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.
 

 

 

I’m trying another new item for Dinner tonight, Aqua Star Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Mango Salsa. I came across this one at the local Kroger Frozen Seafood. It looked great and the description sounded delicious so why not give it a try! It comes frozen and there is 2 Tilapia Fillets in the package. To prepare it you can Boil the package, Microwave, or Bake the fillets. I chose to Bake them.

 

 

 

 

So to prepare it; I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Then sprayed it with Pam w/Olive Oil Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I removed the Tilapia from the packaging and lined the 2 fillets up on the pan. With the oven heated I baked the fillets. I’ll be baking them for 17 minutes. As the Tilapia was baking I got the Mango Salsa package that came with the Fish. I just ran the package under cold water until it was thawed. I took the Tilapia out and they looked delicious!

 

 

 

I added the Mano Salsa across the tops of the Fillets. The Fillets were fork tender and flaked real easy. The Seasoning was spot on, nice mild heat, and the Mango Salsa worked perfect with the Tilapia. I’ll purchase this again, easy to prepare and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

I also 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. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. Very good Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Mini Cone Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

Aqua Star Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Mango Salsa

Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia

Aqua Star “Flame-Seared” Tilapia is actually pre-seared on the surface to grilled perfection, allowing you to finish the final cook step with boil-in-bag, microsteam or the oven prep of your choice. These all natural fillets are glazed in a tangy chili lime marinade and paired with a delightful mango salsa included.

Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Roasted Asparagus and Smashed Red Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Roasted Asparagus, Smashed Red Potatoes, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

I made a Big Breakfast for me and Mom this morning. I fried up some Thin Cut Breakfast Chops, prepared some Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Potatoes, Scrambled Eggs, and toasted slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Needless to say I skipped Lunch after this Breakfast! Outside it’s mostly cloudy and 83 degrees. After Breakfast I went to Walmart and had to get a new water hose for outside. The old one was leaking where the connector threads weer worn out. Back home got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck, driveway, and shed. I think I’m going to buy some wood and make some shelves for the shed. Since we cleaned and straightened it up we have all kinds of space now. For Dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Roasted Asparagus, Smashed Red Potatoes, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. My good friend just got back from his Florida Home and brought several fresh fillets of Grouper! These were just caught a couple of days ago and briefly frozen. So I laid a couple of the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. And these fillets tasted so fresh, thank you Jim for bringing these to me!

 

For one side dish I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded 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. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) 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 Parmesan Cheese before serving.

 

 

For another side I made some Smashed Red Potatoes. I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet and sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil. Preheated the Skillet on medium heat. Next I quartered the Red Potatoes, putting them in a large bowl. Seasoned them with the Garlic salt, Dried Parsley, Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Bacon Pieces, and 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil. Mixed them with the Seasoning until the Potatoes were Seasoned on all sides. I then added them to the preheated Cast Iron Skillet. Then added some sprigs of Thyme and Rosemary, that I grew.

 

 

When the Red potatoes were ready, fork tender, I removed them from the skillet and put them into a large bowl. Added 2 pats of Blue Bonnet Light Butter and got out the hand Potato Masher. I stirred the Potatoes , mixing them with the Butter. I then Smashed them a couple of times withe Masher. I just Smashed them enough to break them up but leaving chunks of the Potatoes in it. Served by Seasoning it with some McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley along with some of the Blue Bonnet Light Butter. These turned out great! I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.
