Today’s Menu: Mushroom and Chicken Risotto
For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Cheerios’s Cereal and also a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside today about 86 degrees, humid, with showers later in the day. Right after Breakfast I headed up to the local Kroger to pick up a few items for tonight’s Dinner. Back home did some house cleaning. Then after Lunch headed out to go see Dad at the rehab unit. It’s been a rough day for him, having a lot of trouble breathing today. His breathing isn’t going to get any better, his lungs have about given up on him. I guess we can always hope! Back at home finished up a few things  around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Mushroom and Chicken Risotto with Baked French Bread.

 

 
I purchased a Simple Truth Rotisserie Whole Roaster Chicken while at Kroger this morning. I went ahead and pulled all the meat, one big roaster I ended up with 2 containers of Pulled Chicken. Set the Chicken aside until needed.
 
Next, I had picked up a small container of fresh Mushrooms at Kroger also. Wiped them off with a paper towel and sliced them up. Setting them aside also.
For the Risotto I used a box of Lundberg Creamy Risotto. Love using the Lundberg Risotto Products, always turns out great. To prepare it is quick and easy. In a 2 qt. saucepan, sauté the Rice in ½ Tbsp. Extra Light Olive Oil over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add 2½ cups water and contents of Seasoning Pouch. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cook uncovered for 20 minutes stirring occasionally until rice is tender. With about 8 minutes of cooking time left I added the Chicken and Mushrooms. Stirred until both were well mixed in the Risotto.
 
Topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese, and done! The Mushroom and Chicken blended with Risotto perfectly and Parmesan Cheese on anything makes it better! I baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread to go with everything. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a small can of Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Sliced Carrots

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life seasoned-haddock-w-creamy-parmesan-risotto-and-sliced-carrots-006Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After a night of heavy rain and thunder storms, the morning was quiet but a lot cooler. We had a record high of 76 degrees yesterday and a high of 41 degrees today! There goes my Sinuses again!Just as soon as they get adjusted to warm weather, here comes the cool weather back. Cloudy and breezy out. After Lunch I went up to see Dad for a while at the rehab center. Back home took a quick nap and watched some College Basketball. For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Haddock w/ Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Sliced Carrots.

 
I had purchased 2 Haddock fillets from Kroger the day before. I rinsed both fillets and cut into smaller pieces. I froze Seasoned Haddock w Green Beans and Fried Polenta 002one bag and kept the other one out for my Dinner tonight. 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. These make a great Fish Sandwich also!

Baked Salmon W Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Whole Baby Carrots 008
For Breakfast I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. We had to be at the hospital by 8:30 this morning. Dad had to go through a procedure to inflate the collapsed lung. Everything went great, so now he just has to build his strength back up before returning home. For dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon W/ Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 

 

Baked Salmon w Cut Green Beans & Potatoes and Sliced Carrots 002
So from the freezer I grabbed a Salmon Fillet last night and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it, I rinsed it off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. i just love all Fish and Seafood.

Fried Walleye w Risotto and Cut Green Beans 005
Started my morning off by preparing a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Has Browns, and a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread. Add in my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, I was set to start the day! Just another perfect Fall day outthere again, sunny and a high around 68 degrees. Got some housework done and headed outside for the day. Got the cart out and did some leaf racking and then took a ride around the neighborhod and lake, just beautiful out!

While at Mejier yesterday they had Walleye on sale so I picked up a couple of fillets. So I’m preparing them for for dinner tonight. I rinsed them off in cold water and patted dry with paper towel. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put them in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till all fillets were well coated. I then fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 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. Along with Crappie their my favorite Fresh Water Fish to eat.
