Today’s Menu: Muenster Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Baked Potato

 

Muenster Cheese Turkey Burger w Baked Potato 006

Cloudy and cool out today, a high in the low 60’s. Had a Poached Egg, and 2 Eckrich Smoked Turkey Sausage Links, on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Muffin. Love those Poached Eggs! Had the morning work out and cleaned up around the house a bit. Then later ran a couple of errands for Mom and back home. For dinner tonight I prepared a Muenster Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Baked Potato.

 

 

Muenster Cheese Turkey Burger w Baked Potato 002
I’m using the Jennie – O Turkey Burger Patties. Picked up a package at Meijer a while back and have them in the freezer. I sat one pattie in the fridge overnight to thaw. They’re already pre-made Patties and come fresh or frozen so all I did was season it with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and fry! I fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 7 minutes per side. Always cook to 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. As always the Burger came out moist, flavorful, and delicious! Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Bun and topped with a slice of Simple Truth Muenster Cheese.

 

For a side with my Burger I had a Baked Potato seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Healthy Life Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

After an early morning rain, the sun came out and it was one beautiful Spring Day! Sunshine and low 70’s. Had a Hoveround repairman stop today to do some maintenance on my Hoveround chair in the late morning.

For dinner tonight, Muenster Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Baked Potato.

A beautiful sunny morning out this morning! Went out and grabbed the morning papers and came back in and prepared a Hearty and Turkey Potato Hash Egg 004Healthy Breakfast, Turkey and Potato Hash w/ Sunny Side Up Egg and a fresh brewed cup of Green Tea!

 
For the Hash I used some of the leftover Turkey Breast from dinner the other night. Reseasoned it a bit and fork shredded it. Using a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Canola Oil and heated it on medium heat. When the Oil had heated up I added some Simply potatoes Hash Browns, seasoned them with Sea salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. As the Potatoes were frying in another skillet I fried one Egg Sunny Side Up. Then as the potatoes were almost done I added the shredded Turkey Breast. As the Hash finished I topped it my Sunny Side Up Egg. Breakfast was served! I also had 2 slices of Toast, a fresh brewed cup of Bigelow Green Tea. One great way to start the day!

Today’s Menu:Seasoned Breaded Yellow Lake Perch w/ Cut Green Beans, Hash Browns, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

After a few perfect days out the rain has set in. It’s rained most of the day, heavy at times, and continue through most of tomorrow. We need the rain though and the weekend is supposed to be beautiful. I had laid a 3 small Yellow Lake Perch fillets out in the fridge overnight to thaw. So for dinner tonight I prepared Season Breaded Yellow Lake Perch w/ Cut Green Beans, Hash Browns, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

Yellow Lake Perch 001
I rinsed the fillets off and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and then rolled it in Zatarain’s Garlic Seasoning Breading Mix. Sprayed a medium size skillet with Pam Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Canola Oil, then preheated on medium heat. I added the fillets to the pan, skin side down, and fried it a total of about 2 1/2 minutes per side. The fillets came out just like I like them, Golden Brown and with an incredible taste! I love using the Zatarain’s Breading mix on Fish, it’s perfect!

 
For sides I heated a 1 serving can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also fried some Simply Potatoes Has Browns, seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley. And had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert tonight a Jello Sugarless Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Yellow lake perch

The yellow perch (Perca flavescens), commonly referred to as perch, is a freshwater perciform fish native to much of North America. The yellow perch was described in 1814 by Samuel Latham Mitchill from New York. Yellow perch are closely related, and morphologically similar to the European perch (Perca fluviatilis); however, the two are recognized as independent species based on anatomical and genetic differences. Other common names for yellow perch include American perch, coontail, lake perch, raccoon perch, ring-tail perch, ringed perch, and striped perch.
Latitudinal variability in age, growth rates, and size have been observed among populations of yellow perch, likely resulting from differences in day-length and annual water temperatures. Typically, northern populations of yellow perch live longer and grow to larger sizes. However, southern populations of yellow perch generally grow much faster. In many populations, yellow perch often live from 9-10 years, with adults generally ranging from 4-10 inches in length.
The world record yellow perch (18 in., 4 lb. 3 oz.)was caught in 1865 from New Jersey, and is the longest standing record for freshwater fish in North America. Anglers often refer to large yellow perch as “jumbo perch” or “jack perch”.
