Today’s Menu: Baked Parmesan Perch w/ Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes

 

Baked Parmesan Perch Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes 006
Our streak of beautiful days is still going, sunny and a high near 70. But rain on the way possibly by tomorrow. Had to have our ice maker in the fridge replaced today. Then did some house cleaning and on to the outside. I bought a miniature Blue Berry Bush and replanted it into a bigger pot, it’s been doing okay I’ve only had it a few days. I also bought a few Herb plants that I replanted in bigger pots. Had the cart out for a while enjoying the day. For dinner tonight I prepared Baked Parmesan Perch w/ Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes.

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday I had picked up some Ocean Perch fillets and wasted no time Baked Parmesan Perch Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes 001in using them. I’m trying a new recipe with them, Baked Parmesan Perch. I was looking for Perch recipes and came across this one on the Taste of Home website, a site I have found many a recipe on. it’s an easily prepared and delicious recipe! I’ll need the following to prepare it; 2 tablespoons dry Bread Crumbs (Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs), 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan Cheese (Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese), 1 tablespoon Paprika (Hungarian Paprika), 1 teaspoon dried Basil, 1 pound Perch or Fish fillets of your choice, and 1 tablespoon melted Butter (Blue Bonnet Light Butter). To prepare it; In a shallow bowl, combine the Bread Crumbs, Parmesan Cheese, Paprika and Basil. Brush Fish fillets with Butter, then dip into the Crumb Mixture. Place in a greased baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. The original recipe calls for a baking temperature of 500° but I opted for 400° instead and an extra 2 minutes of baking time. I just think Fish bakes up better at 400°. The Perch came out delicious! Fantastic flavor from all the ingredients and came out very moist. I have another “Keeper Recipe”.

 

 
Then for a side dish I prepared Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes. I had come across the Jalapeno Cheese Fried Baked Parmesan Perch Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes 003Potatoes some time back in an issue of Cuisine at Home Magazine. Made some changes from the original recipe. I used Simply Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Canola Oil instead of Peanut Oil, Scallions, 1 Jalapeno (sliced), Sea Salt and Ground Pepper, Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese, and I also added some diced Red Onion. To prepare it; Add the Canola Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and heat on medium. Prepare the Diced potatoes according to the package instructions. About midway through the cooking process add the Diced Red Onion and continue cooking. Then Scallions and Jalapeno; saute 2 more minutes, then season with Sea Salt & Pepper. Off the heat sprinkle with the Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese. And presto another keeper Potato Dish! This has turned out to be one of my favorite Potato Side Dishes. Everything just comes together to make this dish the perfect Potato Dish! Quite a meal tonight. For dessert later a Jello No sugar Added Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

Catfish Nuggets Jalapeno Cheddar Potatoes 001
Started my day off with some Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, Scrambled Egg, a slice of Toasted Whet Bread, and a hot cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea! Quite a day outside, started off with a heavy rain that turned to freezing rain. That turned back to rain, with a little thunder, and some sunshine on and off. Sort of like those March Winter Days! For Dinner tonight it’s Catfish Nuggets w/ Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

Catfish Nuggets Hash Browns 002
It was a Catfish Feast for Dinner! I Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Kroger yesterday, on sale. 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 Virgin 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. You can bake Catfish but for me you just can’t beat frying Catfish.

 
For a side dish for the Sliders I prepared Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes. I had come across thJalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoesis a while back in an issue of Cuisine at Home Magazine.

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Cornbread Ears

 

3 Bean Buffalo Chili 004

It’s been a rainy and cloudy morning, with a 100% chance of 3 Bean Buffalo Chili for the day! Started off with some Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, a Scrambled Egg, and Thomas Light English Muffins. Then an extended workout this morning, and it’s off to a good day! Did a light load of laundry and that was about it. Got my Chili in the Crock Pot and ready for some NFL Football. Tonight I prepared some Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Cornbread Ears.

 
I’ve been out of Chili for a while now, I usually have a couple of containers froze in the freezer. And I’ve been wanting some for a while now. It’s loaded with nothing but good things. I use Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round (99% Lean) which is the best tasting Ground Buffalo that I’ve found. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (15 oz.) Chili Beans, 1 Can (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Unseeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours.

 

cornbread ears

Then the serious eats begin, comfort food with Chili! With the sweetness of the Buffalo combined with all those spices and beans, it’s just hard to beat! You can serve it many ways; in a bowl or mug and top it with your favorite Cheese or Chopped Green Onions with a side of Oyster Crackers. Another way to have it is served on top of a Johnny Cake (Cornbread) or have a side of Cornbread with it. I made the Cornbread Ears. It’s normal baked Cornbread but in a cast iron baking mold in the shape of Ears of Corn. I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Roasted Cumin Spiced Turkey Tenderloins w/ Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

 

Cumin Spiced Turkey Tenderloin 004

It wasn’t too bad out this morning, 25 degrees and no wind. That quickly changed as the temperature started dropping and the wind started blowing by this afternoon it was 10 degrees with a wind chill of -5. Went to Kroger around 8 am this morning and stopped by the bank and back home. Just as I got back the repair shop called and they had my car ready, nothing serious thankfully! We went and picked that up and back home for the day. Tonight for Dinner I prepared a Roasted Cumin Spiced Turkey Tenderloins w/ Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes.

 

 

 

For the Turkey Tenderloins I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Boneless Turkey Breast Tenderloins. So to prep the Turkey Tenderloins I’ll need; 2 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1/2 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, andCumin Spiced Turkey Tenderloins 003 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. I love using the Cumin Spiced Rub on Pork and Chicken Dishes. To prepare it preheat my oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the Turkey Tenderloins. Let stand 10 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Turkey to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on both sides. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165°, turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Turkey Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Turkey with the inside being tender and moist! I’ve used the Cumin Spice Rub on different meats now and it works well with all of them, gives it a nice crust and great flavor.

 
For a side dish for the Sliders I prepared Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes. I had come across this a while back in an issue of Cuisine at Home Magazine. Made some changes from the original recipe. I used SimplyJalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Canola Oil instead of Peanut Oil, Scallions, 1 Jalapeno (sliced), Sea Salt and Ground Pepper, Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese, and I also added some diced Red Onion. To prepare it; Add the Canola Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and heat on medium. Prepare the Diced potatoes according to the package instructions. About midway through the cooking process add the Diced Red Onion and continue cooking. Then Scallions and Jalapeno; saute 2 more minutes, then season with Sea Salt & Pepper. Off the heat sprinkle with the Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese. And another keeper Potato Dish! This has turned out to be one of my favorite Potato Side Dishes. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage 008

First week of the New Year and it was 51 degrees this morning when I ventured out to get the morning papers! But that’s going to ending real quick, as they’re saying by Wednesday it will be zero or below to start the day with a high of 10 degrees, got to love this Ohio Weather! Forgot a couple of items when at Kroger yesterday so this morning I went back to pick them up. Back home for the day watching the Football Playoffs. For dinner tonight a favorite Comfort Food of mine, Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies).

 

 

 

While growing up who didn’t like the old-fashioned Campbell’s Beans and Weenies! So it’s Beans and Weenies but I kicked it up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, 1 can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 can of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Black Beans (drained and rinsed), 1/4 of a medium-sized White Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 tablespoon Ground Mustard, 1/2 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and a 1 cup of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 

 

 

Another one of those delicious one pot meals. I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon. I fried it up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. You could make this in a crock pot on low and let it go all day or by using a medium size sauce pan and get done even quicker. I love dishes that you can Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage 001set low and let them simmer. After a couple of hours I sliced up one of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages and added it to the Beans. I then increased the heat to medium for about another 1/2 hour and then reduced it back down to medium low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokieness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite of mine! I also had a slice of Buttered Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage 008

 
Brrr, it was downright cold this morning! About 3:00 this morning I had to get up and turn the heat up. It was in the 30’s. it looks as though it’s going to be another Chilly and Rainy Night for all the Trick or Treaters around here. The last 3 Halloween have been this way. Possible snow flurries coming Saturday morning, our first sign of snow of this season. Spent the day cleaning the spare room back where my computer is at, much needed cleaning! Well to counter the cool day I made a pot of Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Just looked out the window and it’s beginning to flurry every now and then.

 

 

 
Growing up who didn’t like the old-fashioned Campbell’s Beans and Weenies! I hadn’t made it in a while and sounded perfect for dinner tonight. So it’s Beans and Weenies but I jazzed it up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, 1 can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 can of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Black Beans (drained and rinsed), 1/4 of a medium-sized White Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 tablespoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and a 1 cup of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos

 

 

 

Turkey Tacos 002
Mostly cloudy today and about 41 degrees this morning. This weekend only highs around 60 degrees and very cool mornings, love this weather! Well my Dad got to come home from the hospital today! Good to have him back home. He’s still real weak, we’ll have to keep a close eye on him. For dinner tonight always one of my favorites, Turkey Tacos!

 

 
And when making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Canola Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

 

 

 

For toppings I’ll be using; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Wholly Guacamole, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, Red Onions, Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Greek Yogurt.
