Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread

 

Crappie and Hash Browns 008
Very cool out this morning. After I had a light breakfast I went to McDonald’s for mOm and Dad and brought back their breakfast for them before they went to Church. It was in the 30’s here this morning. For the day plenty of sunshine and a high in the low 50’s. Not much going on today so it was the easy chair, remote, and NFL Football for the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Potato Pancakes, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread. * I had Hashbrowns instead of the Potato Pancakes.

 

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
It’s been too long between Crappie Dinners! So I got in the freezer and grabbed the last three bags of Okeechobee Crappie, or Specks as they call them in Florida, and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To start I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side. As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie, especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie. That is the last bags of Crappie in the freezer, hopefully my cousins will bring me some more in March!

 

 

Haddock Potato Pancakes 001

To go with the Crappie 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! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). I wanted Hashbrowns instead of the Potato Pancakes. I used Simply Potatoes Hashbrowns.  Then I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Green Beans go well with any meal as far as I’m concerned. Green Beans was my favorite Vegetable growing up even.

 

 

 

I also baked a small skillet of Martha White Cornbread. Cornbread is something I think I could eat every meal. chili and cornbread 003Nothing better than hot slice of Cornbread with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Was up early, went out and got the Sunday Papers and it’s a beautiful morning out! Had a light Breakfast, a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Did my morning workout and went to Kroger for a few Produce items, Potatoes, Asparagus, Herbs, and such. Back home and got the Cordless and Light Leaf Blower out and gave everything a quick sweep. I love this thing, beats using broom outside! For dinner tonight Crappie!! I’m preparing Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.
