Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 66 Degrees outside today. Got out and got the last of lawn furniture out and cleaned. Then got the cart out of the shed and went around my yard and my neighbor’s yards and sprayed for weeds. A lot of people outside now are wearing the surgical masks. I’ll sure be glad when this virus passes! I hope all of you are staying healthy! So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I had the Catfish Fillets in the frezer. I laid the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with my Catfish 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 later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks and a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

That Healthy Pasta…………………..

When eaten in moderation, pasta can be part of a healthy diet. Whole-grain pasta may be a better choice for many, as it is lower in calories and carbs but higher in fiber and nutrients. … Calories can stack up fast when adding high-fat, high-calorie toppings like cream-based sauces and cheeses.

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

 

 

For Breakfast I made a Ham and Cheese Egg White Omelet. I used Bob Evan’s Egg Whites, Meijer Cubed Ham, and Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of my favorite Tea, Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. More rain today and every day until next Monday. So rain today and a high of 54 degrees. Well its week 2 of isolation. The Governor of Ohio has shutdown everything but Hospitals, Doctor’s Offices, Grocery Stores, essential Repair shops, and Drive Thru or Curb Side Restaurants. My cousin has been bringing us food and such when she ventures out. Also I’ve been ordering what food and needs on line but its tough finding it anymore. Most Stores are out of a lot of items but its starting to better. So wait is what we’ll do until the virus passes or a cure comes along. I hope all of you stay healthy! For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

Thank goodness for our 2 freezers! We have a good supply of items in the freezer. 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! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Smart Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly Cloudy and 48 Degrees outside today. We live in a fairly quiet neighborhood and our street is perhaps the quietest. Even more so of late. I went outside on my Hoveround Chair and just sat outside for about 30 minutes. It was a spooky quiet. No cars went by, there was no sounds of traffic or sirens. Just a flat out dead calm, I can’t quite describe it. Times have really changed all over due to the virus. I hope all of you are staying healthy! So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I guess we’ll be using a lot of things from the freezer since we cut our visits to the stores. I had purchased the Catfish from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the bag of Catfish in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with my Catfish 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 later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made an Egg White ham and cheese Omelet. I used Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, Meijer Cubed Ham, and Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese. I also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy, windy ,and 56 degrees out today. After Lunch I got the cart out of the shed and got a few things done outside. I had enough wood skirting to replace part of the trim around the shed. Then I got a long handled brush and I cleaned part of the deck. Hopefully some day I can afford to have a new deck built, hopefully soon! For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

We love Spaghetti and Meatballs! 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 Original Pasta 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 tonight a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Individual Oven Baked Spaghetti Recipe for Diabetics

Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 15 minutes

Cooking spray
1 cup cooked spaghetti
1 cup spaghetti meat sauce
2 dashes black pepper
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/8 cup finely diced onion
1/8 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup finely shredded, reduced-fat, mild Cheddar cheese

Directions
Yield: 1 serving
Serving size: Whole recipe

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an individual casserole dish or pie pan with cooking spray and set aside. If using leftover spaghetti or sauce, warm them, separately, in a saucepan or microwave. In a small bowl, combine spaghetti, pepper, and Parmesan cheese; toss to coat spaghetti. Spoon into baking dish. Top evenly with sauce. Sprinkle with mushrooms, onion, and green pepper, and then with Cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through.

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ 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, windy, and 38 degrees out today. Moving sort of slow today. I usually don’t lay on my side when I sleep but I ended up that way over night and my back is killing me. Took a couple of Motrin and took it easy most of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

I had purchased the Catfish from Kroger and had them in the freezer. i laid the bag of Catfish in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

To go with my Catfish 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 later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.
