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: Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

To start my day off I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees and sunny out today. I went and had Mom’s car washed and then stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Beautiful day out there today, good day to do some yard work. So I got the cart out along with the leaf blower, rake and hedge clippers. Raked some leaves, and yes some of the trees the leaves are falling, and cut down some bushes that are done for the year. When done I took the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

I haven’t had a Fish Sandwich and Tater Tots in a while and it sounded good for tonight’s Dinner! I used Van De Kamps – Fish Sandwich Fillets for my Fish, which I haven’t had in quite some time. Very easy to prepare. Removed the Fish from the plastic pouch. Heated the oven at 425 degrees. Placed the Frozen Fish Fillets in a single layer evenly on a baking sheet. Place the pan on the oven rack. Bake uncovered 21 minutes. I turned the Fish Fillets over halfway through baking.

 

These turned out perfect! Golden Brown and nice Flavor to them. I topped the Fish with a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Tater Tots as I was baking 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 Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Gave Mom a hand doing some Fall Cleaning of the Living Room and Dining Room. Moved everything and vacuumed and dusted. Then cleaned the outside windows, we removed the screens also and sprayed them down. Finally found someone to trim a big tree we have in the front yard, a lot of dead limbs on it. For Dinner tonight Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese.

 

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 a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down and cooked it for 3 minutes. Flipped it over and cooked it another 3 minutes 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!

 

Tried another new item tonight, Reser’s Main Street Bistro – Baked Macaroni and Cheese. I came across at Meijer the other day. We had the Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Macaroni and Cheese tonight. 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 other one was. 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 along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Mac and Cheese and loaded with Cheesy flavor! Another Fantastic item to have in the fridge. I also had a slice of the baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread I baked yesterday. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. Rainbow Trout is delicious and also a healthy meal choice.

Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 95 degrees and mostly sunny , had a passing shower in late afternoon. I had to be at Kroger between 10 – 11 to pick up a grocery order. I’m going to start grocery pick up again. Our area has the biggest increase for the virus in the County. I sure hope and pray this passes soon. I’m still not sure what to believe about it, real or political. Anyway did a little yard work and got the cart out of the shed and cleaned it up. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus.

 

I’m having Fish again, Walleye tonight. I bought the Walleye from Meijer. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. Next I cut the Fillet in half. Then to prepare it I seasoned it 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!

 

Then for one side 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.

 

 

Then for another 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 shredded Parm Cheese before serving. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Breaded Catfish Strips w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 87 degrees, humid, with rain showers out today. After Breakfast I took Mom to Meijer, she wanted to buy some books. That’s Mom’s favorite thing to do at night, read books. Stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home did a load of laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Breaded Catfish Strips w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I’m having the remaining Louisiana Crawfish Company Breaded Catfish Strips that I ordered from the Louisiana Crawfish Company. These were a bit Spicy for Mom’s taste so I had the remainder for Dinner. Mom made herself a small Meatloaf for her Dinner.

 

The Catfish Strips come Seasoned and Breaded. All I do is prepare it!. I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added the Catfish Strips.

 

I fried the Catfish 9 minutes, flipping the strips over after 4 minutes. I cooked the Strips in 2 batches so not to overcrowd the skillet. When done I laid the Strips on a paper towel lined plate. The paper towel well absorb any extra Oil. The Catfish Strips are delicious! Seasoned just right with excellent Breading. The Breading does have a Cajun kick to it but nothing overpowering. We’ll purchase more of these after we run out from the Louisiana Crawfish Company.

 

To go with the Catfish Strips 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 bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Sunny and 84 degrees, rain moving in later tonight. Beautiful day outside today. Still a little slow after yesterday’s Phantom Pains. They were very painful and draining. Anyway I got the cart out and did a little yard work and then took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed the day. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

I had purchased the Cod from Kroger yesterday. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. I then cut the fillet in half. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined the flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Healthy Life Wheat Burger Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish.

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
