Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, heated up a few slices of Boar’s Head Thick Cut Bacon, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 44 degrees and partly cloudy out. Not quite as nice as our 68 degrees yesterday! They delivered a new Hoveround Mobility Chair for me today. I still have my last one and it’s an excellent chair but under Medicare law they will not pay for repairs for a chair that’s 5 years old. Instead they buy a new one. It makes no sense to me, but who am I! I do appreciate it though but I would think it would save Medicare money to make repairs than buy a new one. The chair I had before that I got 10 years ago is still running! Oh well! For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I left the original post from a night ago for ingredients and directions. Take Care and Stay Safe!

 

It’s Gumbo time! And Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, 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 continue 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, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also. Then for Dessert/Snack later I had a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a high of 41 degrees today and partly cloudy. Above freezing, about time! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast fir Mom. A bit later I took her car to the Car Wash. I had to get all the salt and grime off of it and vacuumed the inside. For Dinner tonight Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Kroger the other day and had them in the freezer. I sat them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

 

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 later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

 

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 30 degrees and partly sunny for the first start of the day. Clouds moved in and waiting to see how the next snow is coming in. We could get 3-4 inches or as less as a 1/2 inch. Hopefully the 1/2 route. We have 8-10 inches still on the ground. i finally was able to get out a bit this afternoon! Went to Kroger this afternoon and stopped by the Bank. Been a rough couple of days. The fridge was leaking so we had to shut the water off, no ice cubes now. The water backed up to a corner of the living room carpet, little to no damage hopefully. And then the phone rang about 7:30 this morning and friend of mine called and told me a very good and longtime friend of ours passed away this morning. He had been fighting Cancer for about 5 months. So it’s been a rough one. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni. Take Care and Stay Safe everyone!

 

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.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 41degrres, cloudy, with rain moving in this evening. I went to Meeijer for a few items Mom wanted that Kroger was out of from our order yesterday. On the way back home I got her car washed. It needed it bad with all the salt build up on it. Then I stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Did laundry when I got home. I always wash the clothes that I had on while at the grocery. Then later scrubbed the kitchen down with the Lysol Wipes. For Dinner tonight Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Kroger yesterday. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

 

To go with the Catfish, 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. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 19 degrees out there this morning. We had a high of 36 degrees and sunny. I had to be at Kroger at 10:30 to pick up my order. I just order on line and they pull the order. Then I pick it up, they bring it to the car. I still prefer going myself but when I need something from Kroger I’m going to try this for a while. Well Mom had no side effects from her 1st Covid Shot. She had the Pfizer Vaccine which seems to be the better one. Did a load of laundry and did some cleaning in the shed and driveway. 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 Coke Zero to drink.

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

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a high of 38 degrees and cloudy out today. Not a thing to do today which is a good thing, I had the Phantom Pains all night again. They started last night around 11:00 and didn’t ease up until almost noon today! So as usual when these last this long, it’s a day of rest. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I had a small package of Salmon Bites or Pieces in the freezer that I had purchased from Meijer. It was a small package of just odd and end pieces of Salmon they had leftover and they packaged them up. I laid the package of Salmon in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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.

 

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 Peach Snapple to drink.
