Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

 

To start my day off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Kroger Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns. One of my favorite Breakfast Dishes. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 75 degrees and partly cloudy out today. Got the cart out and finished up some yard work. Then I washed and cleaned the remaining outdoor chairs. Stored 2 of the 4 in the shed. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Mushroom-Swiss Turkey Burgers
In this gluten-free turkey burger recipe, lean ground turkey stands in for ground beef, and portobello mushrooms produce a juicy, flavorful alternative to the traditional bun. Melted Swiss cheese, sliced tomato and arugula top off this delicious low-carb dinner!…………………………..

Lemon Shrimp and Orzo Salad

Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Gave Mom a hand doing some Fall Cleaning of the Living Room and Dining Room. Moved everything and vacuumed and dusted. Then cleaned the outside windows, we removed the screens also and sprayed them down. Finally found someone to trim a big tree we have in the front yard, a lot of dead limbs on it. For Dinner tonight Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet, that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. I’m glad I bought as much Rainbow Trout and Walleye as I could because it’s tough to find some now. So I laid the package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down and cooked it for 3 minutes. Flipped it over and cooked it another 3 minutes until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

Tried another new item tonight, Reser’s Main Street Bistro – Baked Macaroni and Cheese. I came across at Meijer the other day. We had the Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Macaroni and Cheese tonight. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other one was. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Mac and Cheese and loaded with Cheesy flavor! Another Fantastic item to have in the fridge. I also had a slice of the baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread I baked yesterday. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. Rainbow Trout is delicious and also a healthy meal choice. Rainbow trout is packed with protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as potassium – all of which can help to manage high blood pressure, improve muscle strength and boost metabolism.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees, humid, and rain showers outside today. After Breakfast I picked a friend of mine up and we went out to Ross, Ohio back out to the produce markets there. We got 1/2 Runner Green Beans, White Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, and Watermelons. Back home started to do some yard work but it started raining again. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

So it’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

As I said I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack tonight I’m having a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Breaded Catfish Strips w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 87 degrees, humid, with rain showers out today. After Breakfast I took Mom to Meijer, she wanted to buy some books. That’s Mom’s favorite thing to do at night, read books. Stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home did a load of laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Breaded Catfish Strips w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I’m having the remaining Louisiana Crawfish Company Breaded Catfish Strips that I ordered from the Louisiana Crawfish Company. These were a bit Spicy for Mom’s taste so I had the remainder for Dinner. Mom made herself a small Meatloaf for her Dinner.

 

The Catfish Strips come Seasoned and Breaded. All I do is prepare it!. I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added the Catfish Strips.

 

I fried the Catfish 9 minutes, flipping the strips over after 4 minutes. I cooked the Strips in 2 batches so not to overcrowd the skillet. When done I laid the Strips on a paper towel lined plate. The paper towel well absorb any extra Oil. The Catfish Strips are delicious! Seasoned just right with excellent Breading. The Breading does have a Cajun kick to it but nothing overpowering. We’ll purchase more of these after we run out from the Louisiana Crawfish Company.

 

To go with the Catfish Strips I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For Dessert/Snack a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Healthy Weeknight Dinner Recipes
Find healthy, delicious weeknight dinner recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Grilled Fish Tacos
Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed chile rub and grill it instead. Make sure the fillets are no more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick so they cook quickly. Sometimes flipping fish on the grill can be tricky since the fish can stick to the grill or fall apart. The solution is to invest in a grill basket that easily holds 4 to 6 fish fillets and secures the fish in the basket for easy flipping. If you don’t have a grilling basket, make sure the grill is hot and well oiled before adding the fish………………………………….

Sloppy Joe-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Take sloppy Joes to a new level with tender sweet potatoes standing in for the bun. Sweet potatoes pair perfectly with the tangy, flavorful filling of ground beef, black beans and spices. Chopped dill pickle sprinkled on top adds crunch to this quick weeknight dinner the whole family will love………………………………………

One-Pot Cheesy Tex-Mex Pasta
This comforting one-pot pasta dish has a Southwestern kick. Chili powder and pico de gallo flavor the dish, while melted Mexican cheese adds a creamy finish. Top it with your favorite fixings like scallions, cilantro and sour cream, and serve it alongside a crisp green salad for an easy weeknight meal the whole family will love……………………………..

Today’s Menu: Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 81 degrees and mostly sunny out today. After Tea I had to go back to Meijer for a few items for Mom and to grab a few items I forgot to get there the other day. Back home got the cart out and did a little yard work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese.

I had no clue on Dinner tonight! Then while at Meijer I came across of Salmon Bites or Pieces. It was a small package of just odd and end pieces of Salmon they had leftover and they packaged them up. They looked good so I grabbed a package.To make the Salmon I’ll need; the Salmon Pieces, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

To prepare it; I first preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I seasoned the Salmon Fillet with 1/2 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, Grinder Sea Salt and Creole Seasoning. I put the Fillet in the pan; skin side down. Baked it for 13 minutes; until done and fork flaky. The Salmon came out perfect! Done just right with excellent seasoning. I had also bought a jar of Desert Pepper Peach Mango Salsa to put on the Salmon. Excellent Salsa!

To go with my Salmon I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. And they finally have the Diet Dr. Pepper back in stock, small 12 oz. Plastic Bottles of it.

 

 

 

 

 


Atlantic Salmon
The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.

Desert Pepper – Peach Mango Salsa (Medium Hot)
Escape to the sun-dappled tropics and feast your eyes on a pairing of mangoes and peaches, peppers, and spices… bursting with juicy flavor and ripe for the dipping. Tuck a jar in your basket and sample the fruits of your desire. Peach Mango Salsa pairs well with chicken or pork for a tropical inspired dish.

Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A high of 79 degrees and rain in the morning and partly sunny for the afternoon. I had a rough night last night dealing with Phantom Pains all night into the morning. They were bad ones so I got little to no sleep. So I spent most of the day catching up on some sleep. Luckily I had an easy Dinner to prepare, Leftovers! I heated up the leftover Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. I left the original post from yesterday below for instructions and description. Stay Safe and Take Care All!

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp.
