Today’s Menu: Blackened Grouper w/ Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Wheat Bread



Blackened Grouper Risotto Carrots 001

It’s been a chilly but a sunny and beautiful day out today! Started the day off by making an Egg, Canadian Bacon, and English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich with the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker I had purchased about a month ago. Love this thing, it makes a perfect sandwich every time! Since it was above freezing I took my car and Mom’s over to a local car wash and had them both cleaned, and both needed it! Went to the grocery and home for the day. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Grouper Fillet w/ Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Wheat Bread.




Last night before I went to bed I laid one of the Gulf Coast Grouper Fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. A friend of mine who goes down to the gulf Side of Florida quite often always brings me back some of his fresh caught Grouper. These are always some of the finest tasting Grouper I’ve ever had! i started by rinsing the fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it into smaller pieces. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. Then I got out my favorite skillet, The Cast Iron Skillet. Is there any better pan? You can’t stain it, you fry in it, bake in it, and all temperatures. Just make sure you clean it and keep it seasoned, it will last a life time and then some! Anyway added Canola Oil to the skillet and heated it on medium high. When the pan was fully heated I added my Grouper. Cooked it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! This fish is just soooo good, hard to describe! Moist and bursting with flavor. I hope my friend catches a lot of grouper while he’s down there after the first of the year, and keeps me in mind!




For one side dish I made some Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto. I used Lundberg Creamy Parmesan Risotto. Quick, easy, and delicious Risotto dish. Ready in about 25 – 30 minutes. I added some fresh sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms to it as it was cooking. Then when it was ready I sprinkled some fresh grated Parmesan Cheese on it. Then I also boiled some Mini Carrots and had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.






Lundberg Creamy Parmesan RisottoLundberg Risotto2
Enjoy the delectable flavor of rich, aged Parmesan cheese in this elegant Italian-style risotto. We created this delicious gourmet side dish by blending quality ingredients like Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, and spices with our creamy Arborio rice. You’ll love how the individual kernels plump, creating a rich, creamy sauce while the rice grains remain separate and al dente. Preparing this tasty risotto takes about 20 minutes and requires minimal stirring. It’s an easy, convenient way to add gourmet flair to any meal.

Cooking Instructions

In a heavy 2 qt. saucepan, sauté rice in ½ Tbsp. 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. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese is desired. Serve piping hot.

Buffalo Brats 002


I had ordered a Wild Idea Buffalo Holiday Package that included a 1 lb. package of Buffalo Brats. So today for lunch I prepared my first one. It was real easy to prepare; just put about a 1/2 ich of water in a medium skillet and heated on medium heat. As the water started to boil I added the Brat and put the lid on, Cooked for about 10 minutes and removed the lid and let it cook another 4 minutes. It’s one good Buffalo Brat! Seasoned just right and very tender. Just another one I’ll have to keep in stock in the freezer.

Today’s Menu: Lemon – Pepper Fried Haddock w/ Baked Bay Scallops and Mac and Cheese



Haddock  and Bay Shrimp 004
A cloudy and dreary day out today, a bit warmer but damp. It looks like it’s going to be a stormy Trick or Treat Night tomorrow also they say. Growing up in the neighborhood, in Hamilton, we always looked forward to Halloween Night and all the Candy! Back then we would fill up 2 huge Trick or Treat Bags easily during the course of the night, as all the houses were close together so it was easy to canvas a couple of neighborhoods. For dinner tonight, Lemon – Pepper Fried Haddock w/ Baked Bay Scallops and Mac and Cheese.


It was Seafood tonight with some Mac and Cheese thrown in. I had bought a Haddock Fillet at Kroger the day before along with the Bay Scallops. I still buy Seafood from Kroger it’s one item that’s reasonably priced, and very good quality. To prepare the Haddock I started by rinsing the Fillet off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I then sliced the Fillet into smaller pieces. To season I added a couple of shakes of Sea Salt and then rolled the Fillets in Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. I pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. I could live on Fish and Seafood!


Then for my Bay Scallops. Rinsed them off and patted them dry and then I combined the following; ½ cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 1 Tsp. Onion Powder, 1 Tsp. Garlic Powder, ½ Tsp. Paprika, 1/2 Tsp. Parsley (dried), ¼ Tsp. Cayenne Pepper, ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated, and Dash Sea Salt. Then I melted 2 Tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. Preheated the oven to 400 degrees F and poured the melted butter into a 2-quart casserole dish. Make sure the scallops and butter are evenly placed in the bottom of the dish. Mix all the remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over the scallops. Bake until the scallops are firm, which will take about 20 minutes, careful not overcook the Scallops. These are nothing but delicious! The seasoning along with the Bread Crumbs gives them excellent flavor and a nice brown crust. I also heated up some Bob Evan’s Macaroni and Cheese. Just microwave and their ready. A mini Seafood Fest tonight for dinner! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.


Baked Bay Scallops:


2 Tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter, melted
1 ½ pounds Bay Scallops, rinsed and drained
½ cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs
1 Tsp. Onion Powder
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
½ Tsp. Paprika
1/2 Tsp. Parsley, dried
¼ Tsp. Cayenne Pepper
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
Dash Sea Salt


Total prep and cook time: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C. Pour the melted butter into a 2-quart casserole dish. Make sure the scallops and butter are evenly placed in the bottom of the dish. Mix all the remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over the scallops. Bake until the scallops are firm, which will take about 20 minutes.

A delicious and healthy Chicken Ferocious Dinner. Diabetic friendly and for those watching their calories and carbs as it comes in at 250 calories and 20 carbs.


Chicken Ferocious


2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 skinless, boneless Chicken Breast halves – cut into 1 inch pieces
1 1/2 cups Distilled White Vinegar
1 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1/2 cup Light Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes, or to taste
2 tablespoons Garlic Powder, or to taste
1 tablespoon Onion Powder, or to taste
1 tablespoon Ground Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 (8 ounce) package Button Mushrooms, sliced
3 Green Onions, chopped
3 teaspoons Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Cold Water



Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Add chicken pieces, and fry, stirring, until browned. Pour in the vinegar, soy sauce, and Splenda Granulated Sweetener; stirring until sweetener is dissolved. Season with red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and ginger. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Taste the sauce at this point and adjust seasoning to taste. The sauce should be very sweet. If it is too tart, add more Splenda Granulated Sweetener; if it is too sweet, add more vinegar.
Once the sauce is to your liking, add the mushrooms and green onions. Simmer gently over low heat for another 5 minutes, until the mushrooms shrink a bit. Stir together the cornstarch and water, and stir it into the sauce. Continue to simmer until it reaches the desired thickness.
Makes 4 servings.

Today’s Menu: Braised Buffalo Chuck Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread

Another Perfect Summer Day out, about 70 or 72 degrees and sunny with a slight breeze! Drove my Dad to a Ford Retiree Union Meeting and spent some time at local park catching some of that beautiful sunshine! Well the Buffalo Burger was so delicious yesterday I’m preparing another Buffalo Dish for Dinner tonight. I prepared a Braised Buffalo Chuck Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread. Sounds pretty good and tasted even better!


Buffalo Chuck Roast 004My Braised Buffalo Chuck Roast weighed 1.4 lbs. It comes packaged and has already been braised. It was Braised in Organic Apple Cider, olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Black Pepper, and Sea Salt and the package includes some great juices also. To prepare it I used a 2.75 Quart Dutch Oven. I just sprayed the Dutch Oven with Pam Non Stick Spray and 1 Tbs. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Added the Chuck Roast put the lid on it and warmed it up on medium heat, turning the Roast over once, for about 15 minutes. As was the first one I had of these it’s the most tender, moist, and flavorful Chuck Roast I’ve ever had! The Braise with the Apple Juice and Spices provided the flavor throughout the Roast! The only thing I added to it was a bit more Sea Salt and Black Pepper. The Buffalo is so lean, rich and hearty. Plenty leftover to make some delicious Pulled Buffalo BBQ Sandwiches with for lunch or dinner tomorrow!
For sides it was leftovers. I reheated the Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas from the other night. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Savory Mushroom Brown Gravy and also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.
