Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

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. We ended up with about 1 1/2 inches of snow, our first of the year. Gloomy day out there today. A few snow flurries with a high of 36 degrees. Cleaned the house today and did a few things around the house, not a lot to do today. For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

We’re having Shrimp tonight, I could eat Shrimp and Seafood every day! While at Meijer the other day I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, first time I’ve seen Meijer have these! I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. I love these, they are so meaty. They don’t have that Ocean taste like Ocean Shrimp but they’re awfully good! To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

Poured about 1/2 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning.

 

To go with the Shrimp I prepared some Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I also baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

McCormick Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix
Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix adds extra crunchiness to fried and baked foods. All ingredients have been specially selected to provide a superior coating that seals in natural juices for fish, seafood, poultry, meats and vegetables.
Ingredients
Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, And Folic Acid), Whey (Milk), Dextrose, And Soybean Oil.

Serving size
1/4 cup Mix (32g)
All You Need
1/2 cup Cracker Meal
1 lb. Fish or Seafood*
Water or Milk
Vegetable Oil
Directions
1. POUR Cracker Meal into shallow dish or large plastic bag. Moisten fish, cut into serving-size pieces, or seafood with water or milk. Shake off excess.
2. COAT fish, several pieces at a time, evenly with Cracker Meal. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard any remaining Cracker Meal. Fry as directed below. Serve with McCormick® Cocktail Sauce or Tartar Sauce. Use the entire package to coat 4 lbs. fish or seafood.

*Best with tilapia, trout, catfish, shrimp, or scallops. Also try with shucked oysters and clams, or soft-shell crabs (pierce several times before coating).

Pan Fry: Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a large skillet; heat to 350°F on medium heat. Fry fish, in batches, 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels.

Oven Fry: Cover bottom of shallow baking pan with melted butter. Arrange fish or seafood in a single layer in pan; turn to coat with butter. Bake in preheated 425ºF oven 10 to 20 minutes until golden brown around edges and fish flakes easily with a fork.

Flavorful Tips:
• For a thicker coating, dip fish in a mixture of 3 tbsp. milk and 2 beaten eggs before coating with Cracker Meal.
• Coat boneless skinless chicken breast halves or chicken parts as directed. Bake in 400ºF oven 20 to 30 minutes for chicken breast halves or 45 to 50 minutes for chicken parts.
• Use Cracker Meal instead of bread crumbs when making meat loaf or meat balls.

Making a creamy macaroni and cheese…………….

Cook your noodles in milk instead of water. Cooking your noodles in milk instead of water makes your resulting mac and cheese creamier. Cooking your noodles in milk instead of water makes the sauce creamy before you even add the cheese sauce.

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

Just a cup of Biglow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, beautiful Fall Day out there! I had to pick a Pick and Click order up at Kroger at 10:40. After Lunch I got the cart and rake out and raked some leaves in the backyard, and there were plenty of them! For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese.

 

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

For the Mac and Cheese I used Reser’s Main Street Bistro Signature Macaroni and Cheese. We have used several of their sides now and trying the Mac and Cheese tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be baking it, you can also microwave it. I prefer baking items in the oven. First preheat the oven to 350°F. Next I removed the tray from the package and removed the film. I placed the  container on baking tray and heated it in the oven for 22 minutes. Nice and bubbly around the edges. Let it cool a bit and it’s ready! The Mac and Cheese is delicious! Fantastic Elbow Macaroni with plenty of Cheese, seasoned just right! Excellent Salmon Patty and Baked Mac and Cheese Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Canned Salmon

Both canned and fresh fish are a good source of protein and other important nutrients, and one isn’t necessarily healthier than the other. … In fact, a USDA study found slightly higher levels of two omega-3s in canned pink and red salmon than it found in fresh. Canned salmon has other merits, too. Canned salmon is also rich in protein, vitamin D, calcium (from the bones) and healthy omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats are heart healthy fats. They also promote healthy brain development in babies.

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. Went out to get the paper and the wind was blowing and it was 26 degrees! One chilly morning. For the day windy, mostly sunny and 45 degrees. The yard is full of leaves and branches from the strong winds we’ve had. It wouldn’t do much good to rake and clean the yard until this wind dies down. Did a few chores around the hose and that was it for the day. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight, one of my favorites! 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 Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – PASTA ALLA CARRETTIERA WITH ITALIAN BUFFALO MEATBALLS WEDNESDAY

October 21, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is a PASTA ALLA CARRETTIERA WITH ITALIAN BUFFALO MEATBALLS. Pasta with Buffalo Meatballs which are made using the Wild Idea Buffalo – Italian Buffalo Sausage. For the Pasta you could use Casarecce Pasta, Porcini Pasta, or thick Spaghetti. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wide Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

PASTA ALLA CARRETTIERA WITH ITALIAN BUFFALO MEATBALLS
This dish is named after the people who drove food and wine carts in Italy. It is a slightly spicy red sauce, with garlic and basil, and is typically served over a thicker style of pasta. My favorite rendition of this dish also had hints of parsley and mint, which made for lingering, memorable flavors. After a little research, and substituting a few of the more difficult to find ingredients with like alternatives, I thought I might be able to come close to duplicating it. The only thing missing was Wild Idea’s artisan, Italian Buffalo Sausage, and I knew just where to go for that. This simple dish is packed with flavor and very easy to prepare. The perfect solution, for a stress free, delicious dinner! (Serves 4)

Ingredients:
1 – 1 lb. Italian Buffalo Sausage
3 – tablespoons olive oil
3 – cloves garlic, about 1 tablespoon
½ – teaspoon chili flake, or pepperoncino (dried Italian chili pepper)
½ – cup basil, finely chopped
2 – tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
1 – tablespoon mint, finely chopped
1 – 28 ounce can whole *San Marzano Tomatoes, flash processed, *they’re the best
1 – teaspoon salt
2 – teaspoons sugar
1 – lemon, juiced, about ¼ cup
1 – cup freshly grated, Parmigiano Reggiano, or Porcini cheese
1 – 12 ounce box of Casarecce pasta, Pici pasta, or thick Spaghetti, cooked el dente, reserve 1 cup pasta water

Preparation:
1) Divide Wild Idea Italian Buffalo sausage into 24 pieces and roll into meatballs. Pour one of the tablespoons of olive oil on a baking sheet and roll the meatballs in the oil. Cover and set-aside until you are ready to broil.
2) In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the remaining tablespoons of olive oil. Add the garlic, and toss or stir regularly, until tender, about 3 minutes.
3) Add the basil, parsley, and half of the mint to the pan. Sauté and stir for 1 minute.
4) Add the tomatoes, salt, sugar and lemon juice and stir to incorporate. Bring to a gentle boil, cook for 5 minutes and then add the remaining mint. *Sauce can be made ahead and reheated.
5) During step 4, or right before serving, place the prepped bison meatballs on the second rack from the top of a preheated broiler, and broil the meat balls for about 5 minutes or until nicely browned.
6) Simultaneously bring the reserved pasta water to a boil. Add the prepared pasta, and toss to reheat.
7) Drain pasta, transfer to a bowl and add ½ cup of the grated cheese. Toss to incorporate.
8) Place desired amounts of pasta on to plates and cover with ¾ cup or desired amount of sauce. Serve with the hot Italian Bison meatballs and garnish with remaining grated cheese and additional fresh herbs. Delizioso!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still raining early this morning and stopped about 10:00 this morning. Cloudy and a high of 60 degrees out. After Lunch I spent most of the day helping Mom clean out her walk in closet. We pitched a lot of stuff. Later I took some clothes she no longer wanted to the Good Will Store. So for Dinner tonight I reheat the Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo leftover from last night’s Dinner. I never let these leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from last night for the recipe description and recipe. Enjoy and Stay Safe!

 

Always one of my favorite meals tonight, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

The Zatarain’s Gumbo Pasta Dinner Mix uses Pasta instead of Rice. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Pasta, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too! Then for Dessert later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

When making Pasta………………..

Heavily salt the pasta water. A tablespoon of salt per four quarts of water is a good ratio. This allows the pasta to absorb some of the salt, making it more flavorful.

Today’s Menu: Leftover – Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.80 degrees and sunny out today! A perfect day out there today and our warmest in a while. Got the cart out early to get some yard work done, mainly raking leaves! My neighbor across the street from us has a huge tree in his front yard and it provides enough leaves to keep 6 houses busy raking leaves! After I was done, I took the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. So I’m having the leftovers from the other night’s Dinner, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread. I never let these leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from the other night for recipe description and directions. Take care all!

 

 

I Love this Pizza Pasta from Banquet and haven’t had it in a while! This is one of my favorite boxed foods, Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta. Nothing like a quick, easy and delicious comfort food. I can only find it at Walmart or online now.

 

Anyway it’s got two of my favorites in it, Pasta and Pizza! The box contains 1 can of Pizza Sauce w/ Pepperoni and Sausage and 1 Pouch of Rotini Pasta. I also added a few slices of Turkey Pepperoni and sliced Portabello Mushrooms to the mix. For the preparation you can bake it or prepare it on the stove top, which is how I prepared it. Add 1 cup of water, stir and mix, and simmer and you have your dinner! This came out fantastic! Really had a good Pizza flavor to it and excellent Sauce! The Sauce with the Mushrooms, Sausage, and Pepperoni provides the great flavoring. Easily prepared and makes a hearty and delicious meal. I know it’s a boxed meal, I can’t help it. It’s always been a favorite of mine since the first time I tried it!

 

Along with the Pizza Pasta I also prepared some Baked Cheesy Bread. I’ll be using Healthy Life Sour Dough Bread, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Just Butter the Bread and add your Cheese on top. Then bake on 400 degrees until the Bread is toasted and Cheese is melted. For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

Got the cart and leaf blower out of the shed and cleaned off the deck and driveway. Then took it around the house and cleaned out the flower beds. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Banquet Homestyle Bakes Pizza Pasta w/ Cheesy Bread.
