Use those Orange peels……

 

 

After you’ve peeled an orange, stick a small of the rind in a sealed container with brown sugar, fresh herbs, or anything else that easily dries out. The moisture in the orange is just enough to keep it fresh.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had another of the al fresco Apple Maple Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patties. I love this Sausage, so good! I found more of these at Meijer the other day and picked a few of the packages up. I love making these and making them into a Breakfast Sandwich, the patties are the perfect size for English Muffins. I fried the patty for 8 minutes and as that was cooking I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with my Breakfast Sandwich I had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Passing showers this morning and then mostly sunny and 75 degrees. I got my cart out of the shed and cleaned it today, a much needed cleaning!Then repotted a couple of plants for Mom. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Haddock w/ Oven Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn.

 
I had purchased 2 Haddock fillets from Kroger a while back. I had rinsed both fillets and cut into smaller pieces. I ended up with 3 bags, I had one the day I purchased them and having the last bag tonight. So I grabbed one of the plastic bag and laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. So to prepare them I seasoned them 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 all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Virgin 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.

 
Then for another side I prepared some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area. Still only 1 store around here locally that sells them, so thank you Jungle Jim’s!

 

 

 

I also boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. If you’ve never tried the Green Giant Corn you need to! It’s frozen Mini Ears of sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

Oven-Roasted Fingerling Potato Fries

Ingredients:

Fingerling Potatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Garlic Powder
Sea Salt
Pepper
Chili Powder
Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese
Directions:

1.) Thoroughly clean and scrub the potatoes.

2.) Cut the potatoes in half and add to a large mixing bowl.

3.) Add the olive oil. I used about 1 tablespoon, but this will vary by how many potatoes you use. Just use enough oil to give the potatoes a nice coat. Add your seasonings.

4.) Put on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the Parmesan Grated Cheese

5.) Roast in the oven for 25-35 minutes at 450 degrees. The potatoes should be tender in the middle when done.

 

 

 

Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri

The secret of authentic Southern style fried fish is the crispy combination of cornmeal, corn flour, spices and lemon juice captured in this special Zatarain’s Frying Mix.

It’s Nuts I tell you………..ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

May 18, 2017 at 5:28 AM | Posted in nuts, NUTS COM, Uncategorized | Leave a comment

This week from the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) its ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Wheat Powder is just one of the items that you’ll find at the Nuts site (https://nuts.com/). You can choose from GIFTS, NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and more! Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. So now on to the ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

Organic wheatgrass powder is all natural whole leaf organic wheatgrass bound into a perfect powder. Considered one of the most potent leafy green vegetables, wheatgrass powder is packed with beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber, iron and vitamin K and is non-GMO.

Wheatgrass is the sprouted shoot of wheat. Our organic wheatgrass powder is made from dehydrated wheatgrass to preserve active enzymes and maintain a naturally-rich nutrient profile.

Health Benefits
Organic wheatgrass powder contains an abundance of chlorophyll, which helps detoxify and cleanse the body while eliminating harmful toxins. Chlorophyll is also the reason wheatgrass has an alkalizing effect on the body, balancing pH levels and correcting a build-up of acids, which can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. This alkalizing process also helps deliver oxygen to your cells, giving you a boost of energy. Wheatgrass enhances your body’s ability to ward off infections because it contains immune-boosting nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C. By weight, wheatgrass is approximately 85% pure plant protein and is made up of more than 20 amino acids. Wheatgrass is also a rich source of dietary fiber, iron, and folic acid, and has the capacity to absorb 92 minerals from the soil.

Preliminary research has been conducted to examine the potential health benefits of wheatgrass and the results have been promising:

1) A 2011 study from Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica revealed that wheatgrass helped lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in mice with abnormally high cholesterol levels.

2) Nutrition and Cancer released a 2007 study suggesting that wheatgrass may reduce negative side effects for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Tastes and Uses
Wheatgrass powder has a mild grassy flavor with a hint of sweetness that works well with juice, smoothies or water. Mix a teaspoon of organic wheatgrass powder into your drinks or sprinkle it on foods. The daily recommendation is 1-3 servings. The taste will blend right into a creamy salad dressing like this avocado wheat drizzle. For something a little sweeter try a wheatgrass smoothie, blended with soy milk and frozen fruits.

Ingredients
Organic Wheatgrass Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

One of America’s Favorites – Cacciatore

May 1, 2017 at 5:14 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Chicken cacciatore

 

 

Cacciatore (pronounced [kattʃaˈtoːre]) means “hunter” in Italian. In cuisine, alla cacciatora refers to a meal prepared “hunter-style” with onions, herbs, usually tomatoes, often bell peppers, and sometimes wine.

Cacciatore is popularly made with braised chicken (pollo alla cacciatora) or rabbit (coniglio alla cacciatora). The salamino cacciatore is a small salami that is seasoned with only garlic and pepper.

 

 

 
A basic cacciatore recipe usually begins with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil heated in a large frying pan. Chicken

Rabbit cacciatore

parts, dusted with salt and pepper, are seared in the oil for three to four minutes on each side. The chicken is removed from the pan, and most of the fat poured off. The remaining fat is used to fry the onions, peppers or other vegetables for several minutes. A small can of peeled tomatoes (drained of liquid and chopped coarsely) is typically added to the pan along with rosemary and a half cup of dry red wine. Bay leaf may be used, along with chopped carrot to give extra sweetness. The seared chicken parts are returned to the pan which is then covered. The dish is done after about an hour at a very low simmer. Cacciatore is often served with a rustic bread or pasta on the side.

 
Chicken cacciatore typically, but not always, includes base ingredients of onion, garlic, and tomato.

 

 

U.S.-style chicken cacciatore

There are many different variations of this entree based upon ingredients available in specific regions. For example, in southern Italy, cacciatore often includes red wine, while northern Italian chefs might use white wine. Some versions of the dish may use mushrooms.
In the United States, cacciatore dishes may be prepared with marinara sauce, though in Italy the dish does not always include tomatoes.
