Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Kroger Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I heated up the Ham and put it over top the Hash Browns. One of my favorite Breakfast Dishes. Sunny and 53 degrees, very windy out. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Got the cart out of the shed after Lunch. We had some very strong winds yesterday and had leaves, tree branches, and blown trash all the yard. Everyone’s yard was a mess. So clean up took most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

I purchased the fresh Atlantic Salmon from the Kroger Seafood Department. I had it in the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I’m going to prepare it using the Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon recipe. I haven’t had Salmon or used this recipe in a while. To make I’ll need; Salmon Fillets (4 ounces each), 4 teaspoons Dijon Mustard, 4 teaspoons Honey, 2 slices Whole Grain Bread (torn into pieces), 3 tablespoons finely chopped Walnuts, 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme. To prepare it; Start by preheating the oven to 400°. Place the Salmon on a baking sheet coated with Pam cooking spray. Mix the Mustard and Honey; brush over the Salmon. Next I placed the Bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in Walnuts, Olive Oil and Thyme; press it onto the Salmon Fillet.

 

Bake 12-15 minutes or topping is lightly browned and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. The Salmon came out perfect, moist and delicious. The Walnut Crust is perfect for the Salmon. The Walnuts, Honey, Dijon Mustard, Thyme, and fresh Bread Crumbs all combine perfectly. Love this recipe.

 

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. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

Just a cup of Biglow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, beautiful Fall Day out there! I had to pick a Pick and Click order up at Kroger at 10:40. After Lunch I got the cart and rake out and raked some leaves in the backyard, and there were plenty of them! For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese.

 

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

For the Mac and Cheese I used Reser’s Main Street Bistro Signature Macaroni and Cheese. We have used several of their sides now and trying the Mac and Cheese tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be baking it, you can also microwave it. I prefer baking items in the oven. First preheat the oven to 350°F. Next I removed the tray from the package and removed the film. I placed the  container on baking tray and heated it in the oven for 22 minutes. Nice and bubbly around the edges. Let it cool a bit and it’s ready! The Mac and Cheese is delicious! Fantastic Elbow Macaroni with plenty of Cheese, seasoned just right! Excellent Salmon Patty and Baked Mac and Cheese Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Canned Salmon

Both canned and fresh fish are a good source of protein and other important nutrients, and one isn’t necessarily healthier than the other. … In fact, a USDA study found slightly higher levels of two omega-3s in canned pink and red salmon than it found in fresh. Canned salmon has other merits, too. Canned salmon is also rich in protein, vitamin D, calcium (from the bones) and healthy omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats are heart healthy fats. They also promote healthy brain development in babies.

Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

For Breakfast this morning I Fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, heated up 3 slices of al fresco Chicken Bacon, and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It started raining last night around 9:00 and continued to rain all day. Had a high of 49 degrees. Mom’s blood work came back showing no major problems. They did change one of her medications though. So I went to Kroger to pick up the prescription. We have a lot of creeks and ditches that are overflowing from all the rain. Back home did some clean up work on the computer. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 

I purchased the Walleye at Meijer and it in the freezer. I placed it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets 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 them 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 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. 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 shredded Parm Cheese before serving.

 

For another side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees and partly cloudy today. More like a Spring Day instead of a Fall Day out there. Did a few light chores around the house and then headed outside to enjoy the beautiful Fall day. Got the cart out for most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its White Lake Perch w/ Tater Tots.

 

I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had a bag in the freezer. Sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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.

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Tater Tots as I was cooking the Fish. Just baked at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 75 degrees and sunny out today. Not a lot going on today but rest. I’ve a bad sinus headache all day. Hopefully better later tonight! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes.

 

 

So to prepare it I first rinsed the fillets 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 tried another Reser’s Main Street Bistro side dish, Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I came across these Meijer. And we are hooked on them!. We had the Sliced Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Scalloped Potatoes. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the others were. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve! Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another delicious Potato Dish! Seasoned just right and you can hints of taste from the Butter and Sour Cream. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 69 degrees and partly cloudy out today. A bit cooler out there today and they say a high in the 50’s by Friday. Maybe Fall has arrived! I’m glad I’m caught up with everything. I had one of those sleepless and rough nights dealing with Phantom Pains! Little to no sleep overnight. They started about 10:00 last night and finally let up about 11:00 this morning so I spent the day resting and catching up on sleep. I’m totally exhausted. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread.

 

I had purchased a a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer and had it in the freezer. I sat the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

To prepare it; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Layed the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a micowavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one my favorites from 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 perfectly with the Salmon.

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fried Potatoes and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green. 72 degrees and rain out today. Much needed rain, everything is dry! We’ve been watering our lawn every other day to help out the front lawn and bushes. Couldn’t do much outside with the rain so I cleaned and straightened the Fridge and then the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fried Potatoes and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread. I had Stouffer’s Mac and Cheese with mine Mom had the Potatoes.

 

I had a few packages of Walleye Fillets that I had bought from Meijer in the freezer. So I laid a package in the Fridge to thaw overnight. I had already cut the fillets into smaller pieces before freezing them. So to prepare it I first rinsed the fillets 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!

 

Then for a side I made a Cast Iron Skillet of Fried Potatoes. I love these! 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 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.

 

 

Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 82 degrees and mostly sunny. This is our warmest day in a while. Went to Home Depot after Breakfast. Then on the way back stopped at the ATM, got gas, and got the car washed. Back home did a little yard work. Boy we really need a good rain, everything is turning brown. For Dinner tonight its a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

I had picked up a couple of Orange Roughy Fillet at Jungle Jim’s International Market a while back and had it in the freezer. I sat a bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need; the Orange Roughy Fillet, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Flour, Egg Beater’s (1/2 cup), Hungarian Paprika, and Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. I’ll serve it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I first Seasoned the Fillet with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I seasoned the Flour with the added Hungarian Paprika. Then rolled the Fillet in the Flour, next to the Egg Beater’s, and finally in the Panko Bread Crumbs.

 

I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added my Fillet. I fried it for 3 minutes per side. It fried up perfect! Golden Brown on the outside and a moist center. I served it on the Aunt Millie’s Bun. Orange Roughy has such a good taste to it, it’s a very mild Fish. Makes the perfect Fish Sandwich!

 

As my Orange Roughy was cooking I turned the oven on to 425 degrees and baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut 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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange Roughy Fillet

Orange Roughy
The orange roughy, also known as the red roughy, slimehead and deep sea perch, is a relatively large deep-sea fish belonging to the slimehead family. The UK Marine Conservation Society has categorized orange roughy as “vulnerable to exploitation”. Wikipedia

Protein. Orange roughy and tilapia serve as a rich source of protein, although tilapia provides slightly more; tilapia has 45.5 grams per serving and orange roughy has 38.9 grams per serving. The protein in these varieties of fish is considered complete, meaning that they contain all nine essential amino acids.

Pass the Cornflakes please…………………..

Cornflake Your Fish – For added crunch with fewer calories, use cornflakes instead of breadcrumbs to coat fish fillets. Not only do cornflakes contain fewer calories than breadcrumbs, they are less absorbent and give a lighter covering, so the fish will soak up less oil.
