Today’s Menu: Captain D’s – Battered Cod and Shrimp

 

No Breakfast this morning. I slept in, which I rarely do. My Sinuses and Allergies really have me down. So I was a slug today. 85 degrees, humid and nothing but rain all day! For Dinner tonight Mom wanted Captain D’s tonight and that was fine by me.

 

 

We each had a 2 Piece Battered Cod and a side of 3 Shrimp. Mom also had a side of Hush Puppies and Mac and Cheese. Kitchen reopens tomorrow, Stay Safe and Take Care All!

Today’s Menu: Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

Had a light Breakfast to start my day, not much of an appetite in this hot weather. I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s 99 degrees and sunny out, thankfully low humidity. Got the cart out after Breakfast and got some yard work done before the extreme heat kicked in. Later did a load of laundry and cleaned all the counters in the kitchen with disinfectant wipes. Trying to stay ahead of the virus! So for dinner tonight I prepared some Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

Had no clue on what to have for Dinner tonight. I did know I wanted a lighter Dinner and one easy to prepare. I explored the depths of the stand up freezer and found a bag of Frozen Kroger Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp, so it’s Shrimp tonight. Easy to prepare, I just preheated the oven to 450 degrees. Grabbed a large baking sheet, lined it with foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I baked the Shrimp for 12 minutes, turning them over after 6 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes and serve. These were fantastic, really nice size Shrimp and lightly breaded to give a nice crunch but not too much to make it mushy as some breading. Great product to have in the freezer. Served them with Heinz Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Louisiana Remoulade Sauce for dipping.

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac & Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Nice size, excellent Cheesy Mac. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Couldn’t get much easier of a Meal to prepare. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Spicing up that Mac and Cheese……………………….

Throwing in spices to your macaroni and cheese might be the easiest and most affordable way to add in additional flavor. Basic spices that you may already have in your pantry that would work well include red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning, chili, onion, and garlic powder.

Today’s Menu: Baked Fish Sticks / Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg White Ham and Cheese Omelet. I used Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, Meijer Diced Ham, Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. Love these Omelets! I also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy but had a high of 59 degrees, a litle light rain. I got my test results back from last week. My Diabetes 2 was well under control and all blood work including my liver were all normal. Not much to do today so I got the cart out of the shed and did a little yard work and took off for a ride around the neighborhood. I won’t have many more days where I can get the cart so I wanted to get it out and enjoy the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Fish Sticks / Mac and Cheese.

 

I wanted something light and easy to prepare and nothing easier than Baked Fish Sticks / Mac and Cheese. For the Fish Sticks I bought a box of Kroger Crunchy Fish Sticks. First time using these but Mom had bought a box a while back and I tried them then. So i heated the oven on 400° degrees. Grabbed a small baking pan and sprayed with Pam Non Stick Spray. Lined my Fish Sticks up in the pan and baked. I baked them for 15 minutes and done!

 

 

 

 

They baked up to a golden brown and were excellent! They make a perfect light Dinner. Nice crispness and the breading was well seasoned. They were 180 calories and 20 carbs per serving (5 Fish Sticks). Good one to have in the freezer. Served with a side of Tarter Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Mac Cheese I’m using Kraft Whole Grain Macaroni and Cheese. It comes in a 1 serving microwavable cup. To prepare it I removed lid and removed the Cheese Sauce packet from the cup. Added water to the cups fill line and stirred. Microwaved uncovered, on high for 3 1/2 minutes. Do not drain the excess water. Stir in the Cheese Sauce Mix and it was ready. I love the Kraft Mac and Cheese they always comes out perfect. Well Fish Sticks and the Mac and Cheese couldn’t have been any easier to prepare. One by oven and the other microwaved! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Mini Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

To start my morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High Pollen and Mold count out today so I’m dealing with allergies again! Cloudy and 65 degrees outside. Went to Meijer, the Post Office, and then to the ATM, and stopped and got gas. Not much else going on today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Ocean Perch w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

I picked up the Ocean Perch at Kroger the day before, cleaned them and had them in the fridge. Really love the Kroger Seafood Department, good selections. To prepare them I preheated a medium size skillet, that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added Extra Light Olive Oil, on medium heat. Lightly seasoned them with the McCormick Sea Salt. I then put them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag and added Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri, shaking the bag then until the Perch Fillets were coated. Added the Fillets to the heated skillet and fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!

 

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ocean Perch
Ocean perch is mild tasting yet a bit sweet, with a moderately firm texture. The meat is lean, moist and flaky. Large ocean perch develop a coarse texture. Deep-skinned ocean perch with the fat line removed has the most delicate flavor. The flesh is white, though not as light as cod, and it turns opaque white when cooked.Whole fish may have bulging eyes and distended air bladders, which is a result of being brought up from great depths, not an indication of poor quality.

Skillet Chili Mac
Poblanos add a kick of heat to this chili mac recipe. If that’s not your thing, swap in green bell peppers to tone down the heat in this easy pasta dish, which mashes up mac and cheese and chili into a seriously satisfying skillet dinner…………..

Jalapeño Popper Mac and Cheese Bites
When you’re craving jalapeño poppers and mac and cheese and you want to eat with your hands, these easy cheesy bites—which are baked in a mini muffin tin—are just the ticket. Serve them as part of a family-friendly dinner or put out a platter for a casual party. A crispy breadcrumb topping provides a wonderful contrast to the creamy mac & cheese, while the optional fresh parsley and pickled jalapeño garnishes add a nice color contrast and bright flavor………..

Four-Cheese Macaroni and Cheese
The more cheese the merrier in this baked macaroni recipe, which also features butternut squash and whole-grain pasta……………….

Cheesy Beef Enchilada Casserole
This veggie-packed beef enchilada casserole is mild, so put out hot sauce and chopped jalapeños if you’re feeding heat-seekers. The quick and easy dinner recipe makes extra cheese sauce—save it to make One-Pot Mac & Cheese with Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts later in the week (see Associated Recipes) or serve it with steamed vegetables, such as broccoli, for an easy side dish………………..

Zucchini Lasagna Rolls with Smoked Mozzarella
This healthy riff on lasagna rolls uses strips of zucchini instead of lasagna noodles for a vegetable-packed dinner that’s fun for the whole family. This is a great recipe for kids to help make—let them get their hands dirty rolling the zucchini ribbons with the cheesy filling. Use a vegetable peeler or mandoline to quickly slice the zucchini into uniform thin strips—this will ensure easy rolling and even cooking…………………..

Pan-Seared Halibut with Creamed Corn and Tomatoes
For this healthy fish recipe, you steep corncobs in milk; the resulting “stock” boosts the intensity of made-from-scratch creamed corn, plus extra starch from the corn contributes to its thick texture. This recipe calls for halibut—line-caught from the Pacific Ocean is the most sustainable option. Can’t find it? Swap in Pacific cod or U.S. farmed tilapia instead. Serve this summery combination of seared fish, corn, tomatoes and basil for weeknight family dinners or to company on the weekends…………………
