Today’s Menu: Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

To start this Tuesday off I had one of favorites, French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, 1/2 cup of 2% Milk, 1 medium Egg, Ground Nut Meg, Ground Cinnamon, and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Mix the Milk, Egg and Spices together in a bowl and dip the Bread in mixture. Fry until each side is golden brown. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Just fry for 8 minutes and done. For the Syrup topping I used Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Oh how I love French Toast! It’s 50 degrees and partly sunny out today. Ran a couple of errands and stopped by Meijer for a few items. Back home I was all caught up on everything and just took it easy. For Dinner tonight its Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Tilapia while at Meijer earlier. I purchased 2 big and beautiful fillets of the Tilapia, having 1 for Dinner and froze the other one. I also bought a Red Snapper Fillet. So I had already rinsed the fillet in cold water and had it in plastic bag the fridge. To prepare it I’ll need; the Tilapia, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. To start I heated Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet was ready I cooked the Tilapia until Golden Brown, about 3 minutes per side. I had not had Tilapia in a while and it tasted great! Moist with that excellent Zatarain’s Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

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. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

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

 

 

No Breakfast this morning . I had to be at my Family Doctor for my 4 month checks of Sugar, Cholesterol, and such. I’ll get the results next week, hopefully all good! Afterward I needed a few things from the West Chester Meijer and then I took Mom to Kroger to let her shop. Back home did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Panko-Crusted Fish Sandwich and Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had a Cod Fillet in the freezer that I had purchased from Kroger. I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I had washed them off in cold water and sliced them into Sandwich size Fillets before I froze them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed 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 Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain 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 which makes for one excellent Fish Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

For my Fries I’m using my favorite, Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Trout Amandine
Trout Amandine is a classic French dish with a crunchy almond crust that’s fried in a brown butter sauce. Our makeover version is baked instead of fried, and because the fillets are coated in buttermilk and breadcrumbs, you’ll still enjoy a crispy and golden crust………

Eggplant Tortilla Casserole
This layered casserole is inspired by classic cheese enchiladas, minus the fuss of rolling and stuffing individual tortillas. You’d never guess that within this comforting Tex-Mex casserole hides a layer of thinly sliced eggplant. The thin slices become tender when roasted and add a subtle savory note………

Lemon Chicken and Rice
This easy Persian-inspired chicken and rice dish has a beautiful golden color and a wonderful fragrance. If you have saffron in the cupboard, do add that optional pinch; just a little will enhance the flavor and aroma of the dish……..

Today’s Menu: Tuna Helper Tuna Cheesy Pasta and Rustic Sesame Loaf Bread

 

 

 

To start this Saturday morning off I opened up a can of Turkey Spam. I sliced off 3 slices and fried it up in a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Next using the same skillet I Scrambled up a couple of Eggs, when done topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento 4 Month Aged Off the Block Gouda Cheese and some Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce. Then I toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Excellent Breakfast! 46 degrees and cloudy out today, with snow coming in tomorrow along with a Artic Freeze!. Afterward I did a load of laundry. Then after Lunch I got the cart, leaf blower, and rake out of the shed. I cleaned up around the house, flowerbeds, deck, and driveway areas. Feels good to get outside! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Tuna Helper Tuna Cheesy Pasta and Rustic Sesame Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

 

I came across a box of Betty Crocker Tuna Helper Tuna Cheesy Pasta at Jungle Jim’s the other day and it just sounded good. I’ve fixed many of the Helper styles before, first time for the Tuna. To make the Dish I’ll need; 1 Box of Tuna Helper, Water, 2% Milk, Butter, and 2 cans of Chicken of the Sea Tuna.

This came out an excellent dish! The Pasta was great, very good Cheese, and the Tuna worked perfect with Pasta. Plenty of Leftovers for a few Lunches! I also baked the other half of the Rustic Sesame Loaf Bread from the other night. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Hot Fudge Topping.

Today’s Menu: Izzy’s Boneless Cod Sandwich

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. I’ve had another rough morning dealing with Phantom Pains. 2 days in a row is very unusual. They started about 5:00 this morning and continued until about 3:00 this afternoon. So another day of not doing much besides sleeping and resting. Hopefully pain free tomorrow. For Dinner tonight an Izzy’s Boneless Cod Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

 

Really didn’t feel like cooking after the day I’ve had so I’m having the Izzy’s Boneless Cod Sandwich. I love these always so good and you can’t get mush easier for clean up! The Sandwich was huge! Nice size Battered Cod Fillet, seasoned just right. It comes on Rye Bread with Tarter Sauce. One delicious Sandwich. I could only eat 1/2 of it, I’ll have the other half for Lunch tomorrow. It came with a Potato Pancake which I gave to Mom. Mom had the Izzy’s Reuben. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Pan-Fried Dover Sole w/ Rice/Wild Rice and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Pan-Fried Dover Sole w/ Rice/Wild Rice and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. I topped it off with a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Colby Longhorn Cheese as it was getting done. Then I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 37 degrees and not nearly as windy as yesterday. The wind was terrible yesterday, so strong it brought down part of my neighbors carport awning. After Breakfast we went to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I needed some Rozoni Healthy Harvest Pasta and Jungle Jim’s is the only store that carries it anymore, so sad! Needed a few other items also. What a store! After Lunch I got the leaf blower and push broom out of the shed and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas from all the leaves, limbs, and trash that was blown all over by the high winds. For Dinner tonight Pan-Fried Dover Sole w/ Rice/Wild Rice and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I’m having the sea to Table West Coast Dover Sole again! I had this same Dinner back in January and it was so good I’m having it again tonight! Sole is a flaky and mild flavored fish with a sweet flavor. As the other Sea to Table Products it comes frozen with 4 fillets per package. I’m preparing all 4 of the fillets. To make tonight’s dish I’ll need; McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, and Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I washed the Fillets off in cold water. Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Bread Crumbs and let sit for 5 minutes. Next I got a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating up I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the 2 fillets. As they started cooking I drizzled a bit of Lemon Juice across both fillets along with Dried Parsley. I cooked them for 3 minutes then flipped them over and continued cooking them for another 3 minutes, until both sides were a beautiful golden brown.

 

 

 

As last time, the Dover Sole came out delicious! Fried up perfect, nice crust. The Sole was as described; flaky with and light sweet taste to it. Excellent Fish, look forward to having it again soon!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So as the Fish was cooking I prepared a box of Lundberg ORGANIC WHOLE GRAIN and WILD RICE – ORIGINAL. I bought a couple of boxes of it on my last visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market and I had this box left. I first sliced up some Baby Portabella Mushrooms. I’ll also be adding some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese to it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; In a medium saucepan I combined 1 ¾ cups of water, sliced mushrooms, rice, beans and seasoning packet, and 1 Tbsp. extra light olive oil. Stirred well and brought to a boil. Cover and reduced the heat to low. Instructions said do not lift lid while cooking. Simmer for 32 minutes. Remove it from the heat. Let stand covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and sprinkle with the Grated Parmesan Cheese and serve. Very, very, good Rice Dish as all the Lundberg’s Products are.

 

 

 

 

 

 


I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Love having these Fish Dinners! For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sea to Table
West Coast Dover Sole
Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

* Why We Love It: Similar to other flatfish such as fluke, Dover Sole has a sweet flavor with a flaky and delicate texture – perfect for a simple yet eye-catching plate. Unlike the European Dover Sole, West Coast Dover Sole is a member of the flounder family.

* 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: Dover Sole, rated as a Best Choice by Seafood Watch, is from Astoria, Oregon, a small fishing town of about 10,000 people located at the mouth of the Columbia River just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean.

* Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our supply partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Scrambled Eggs, heated up some Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Everything is caught up around the house so I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Meijer last week and had them in the freezer. Laid the bag of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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.

 

 

 

 

To go with the Catfish, Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later some slices of Boar’s Head Colby Longhorn Cheese and Kroger Wheat Saltine Crackers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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
