Today’s Menu: Fried Gulf of Maine Redfish w/ Potato Pancakes and Sugar Snap Peas

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Afterward I went to Kroger for a couple of items and back home. Mom didn’t go to Church today, she’s not been feeling up to par the last few days so she stayed home this morning. Made Mom some Chicken Noodle Soup for Lunch, she’s feeling a lot better! Did a few chores here in the house. Tonight for Dinner it’s Fried Gulf of Maine Redfish w/ Potato Pancakes and Sugar Snap Peas.

 

 

Being a Fish and Seafood Lover like I am, I’m sure glad I came across the Sea to Table website a while back. They have some fantastic selections of Fish and Seafood, be sure to check them out (https://www.sea2table.com/) Tonight I’m having the Gulf of Maine Redfish. Gulf of Maine Redfish is – This deep water New England classic — also known as the Snapper of the Northeast — has bright red skin and flaky meat that is slightly sweet. I haven’t had this in a while and they had it on sale so I purchased some along with some Dover Sole.

 

 

The Redfish comes frozen, 4 – 3 oz. Fillets. I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare my Redfish I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I first 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.

 

 

The Redfish fried up perfect, with a nice crust. The Fish was as described; flaky with and light sweet taste to it. It fried up like Ocean Perch, it curled as you cooked it. The Fish is a real meaty fish, which I love. Excellent Fish, look forward to having the Dover Sole soon!

 

 

So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beaters (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family loves these Potato Pancakes! I served them with a side of Daisy Light Sour Cream. They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers, perfect for Breakfast.

 

 

Then I also prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Sea to Table – Gulf of Maine Redfish
Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

Why We Love It: Restaurants and home cooks all over New England embrace Gulf of Maine Redfish for its mild, slightly sweet taste and flaky meat. This fish makes a great alternative to other white-meat fish like Snapper, and is perfect for a long list of recipes. Each fillet is hand-cut and boneless, and retains its tender, bright red skin that helps lock in moisture no matter how you cook it.

Cooking Tip: Cut the fillets into bite-sized pieces and combine with veggies, tomatoes and broth for a delicious bouillabaisse.
Where It’s From: Redfish made a triumphant return from being overfished in the Atlantic Ocean, and now thrive in the deep waters off the coasts of Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

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: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes

 

To start this rainy morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Meijer Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then topped them off with Diced Ham. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 58 degrees, partly cloudy and light rain on and off all day. A whole lot of rain is coming up for tomorrow. Did a couple of loads of laundry after Lunch. Later I straightened up the pantry and our junk closet. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased yesterday. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef.

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Savory Beef Gravy that I added a can of Kroger Pieces and Stems Mushrooms, to top the Cubed Steak with.

 

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy

Today’s Menu: Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees, sunny and windy out today. My neighbor has food from a local Food Bank delivered to his house. He has to leave for Florida today to be with his sister who is fighting Cancer. So he called me and asked if I would take some of the food that was delivered to him yesterday, and use what I want and give it to a family that needs it. So after Lunch I took some to another neighbor and took some over to my Cousin’s house. So the Food went to where it was needed! Back home did a few light chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy.

 

Just the words of “Breaded Pork Tenderloin” makes my mouth water! My order from Omaha Steaks was delivered earlier and 1 of the items I ordered was Breaded Pork Tenderloin. 1st time ordering it and it will not be the last! They come Frozen and 4 Breaded Pork Tenderloins per box.

 

 

To prepare it you can Microwave it or Bake it. I always prefer the baking option over microwave option. So to prepare it I preheat oven to 425°F. Then lined a sheet pan with foil and 1 T. of Extra Light Olive Oil per piece of pork on sheet tray. Placed 2 of the Pork pieces on sheet tray. Placed it on the center rack of oven. Cooked for 10 minutes, flipped it and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until the Pork was golden brown and reached 145°F. Drain on paper towel and ready serve.

 

 

As all Omaha Steak Products, these are so easy to prepare! And as all the Omaha Steak Products they were so delicious! Well seasoned and perfect Breading, not over Breaded but with enough to make a nice crust. They are big patties and are only 220 calories and 4 net carbs per serving! Another great item to have ready in the freezer from Omaha Steaks!

 

 

To go with Breaded Tenderloins I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

 

Then I also prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Breaded Pork Tenderloin with. What a Delicious Dinner! For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love that Goetta! Windy, cloudy, light rain and 45 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom, again. She found out she needed some more items for Thanksgiving. I got to Kroger around 7:00 and it was already getting crowded. Back home I did a load of laundry. I always take what clothes I go to the store or Doctor’s Appointment in and wash them right away. Can’t be too careful! I go for my yearly check and tests at my Oncologist, hopefully still Cancer Free! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased the other day. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Strips w/ Mushrooms, Potato Pancakes and Sugar Snap Peas

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Only 49 degrees and cloudy out today, a good day to stay in. And I did after I picked up a grocery order from Kroger. With the increase of the China Flu I thought I would start to pick my groceries up. I just order online and schedule a time to pick them up. Did a load of laundry and a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Strips w/ Sauteed Mushrooms, Potato Pancakes and Sugar Snap Peas.

 

To prepare them; I first Rinsed the Wild Idea Bison Steak Strips and pat them dry. I then added a light amount of Extra Light Olive Oil to them, making sure the Strips were completely covered on all sides. Then I seasoned them with Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt. The Omnivore Salt is a blend of Natural Sea Salt and Organic Spices. Then I left the Strips rest. Next I got a Cast Iron Skillet and added 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on Medium High Heat.

 

Over Medium High heat, I cooked the Bison Strips for about 4 minutes, tossing to turn occasionally. I removed the Strips from the skillet into a bowl. I turned the Heat to Medium and then using the same Skillet I Sauteed some Mushrooms. I seasoned those with Ground Roast Cumin, Dried Parsley, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Turning and tossing the Mushrooms often and for about 4 minutes. I removed them from the Skillet into a bowl. I used the same Skillet and Sauteed the Mushrooms.

 

For one side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry!

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Skillet Diced Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and humid outside. After Breakfast I went to Meijer, we needed a new garden hose. Back home and inside for most of the day, way too humid for me. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches.

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it, preheat the oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

For one side I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. An easy to prepare and delicious Potato dish from Idahoan. A breeze to make just mix the ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes and you have some delicious Scalloped Potatoes. Plus their only 140 calories and 19 net carbs.

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

I also had some Sliced Peaches to top everything off. They were Meijer Frozen Sliced Peaches, always delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up some Meijer Diced Ham,and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and topped them with some Sargento Off the Block Three State Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. Then I fried an Egg Sunny Side Up and topped the Ham and Potatoes. Love this Breakfast Dish! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we finally hit the 80’s, 83 degrees and mostly cloudy. We have a tree in the front yard and it’s either shedding leaves or flower buds. So I got the rake out and raked the front and side yard. Then got the cart out and took a spin around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes.

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased the other day. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef.

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Savory Beef Gravy that I added a can of Kroger Pieces and Stems Mushrooms, to top the Cubed Steak with.

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!
