No sticky Rice………

 

If your rice tends to stick together when you cook it, add a teaspoon of lemon juice to the water when boiling. Your stick problem will be gone.

An oldie but still goldie hint………

 

When your salt gets sticky in high humidity, keep it flowing freely by adding some raw rice to the shaker to absorb moisture. Rice absorbs moisture very slowly under these conditions and lasts for a long time.

Rice…….

 

 

Rice can be stored in the fridge for a longer amount of time if you store a slice of toast on top of it. The toast will absorb excess moisture and keep the rice fluffy and fresh.

Instead of starchy white rice, opt for a whole grain rice such as brown rice, which is rich in vitamin B and antioxidants. Our diabetes-friendly rice recipes can help you maintain a healthy eating plan that tastes great, too.

Love that Brown Rice………

 
Brown rice is considered a whole grain since it hasn’t lost its “wholeness” through the refinement process. Whole grains are proven to reduce the buildup of arterial plaque and reduce the risk of heart disease and high cholesterol.

Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Then I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns along with frying up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Lot of rain overnight, a couple of thunderstorms had the night lit up. Mostly cloudy today high in the 70’s. After Breakfast did a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch went up to see Dad for a while at rehab. He’s been doing a lot better of late. Back home not a lot going on so I caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight its Fried Walleye w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 

 


I had purchased a couple of small Walleye Fillets at Meijer yesterday and had them in the fridge. To prepare them I rinsed them off in cold water and patted them dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

To go with the Walleye I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Whole Grain Brown Rice. To prepare it just microwave. It comes in a microwavable Pouch. Just heat for 90 seconds and serve! Rice comes out perfect, steaming hot and fluffy.

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Moo Shu Vegetables
This vegetarian version of the classic Chinese stir-fry, Moo Shu, uses already-shredded vegetables to cut down on the prep time. Serve with warm whole-wheat tortillas, Asian hot sauce and extra hoisin if desired…….

 
Vietnamese-Style Beef and Noodle Broth
Inspired by pho—a traditional Vietnamese soup—this one-pot meal is garnished with crunchy mung bean sprouts and chopped fresh basil. You could also serve it with lime wedges and a bottle of Asian chile sauce, such as sriracha, on the side…..

 
Sichuan-Style Chicken with Peanuts
The piquant Sichuan Sauce (which doubles easily) works well with almost any stir-fry but particularly enhances dishes with meat, fish and poultry. When stir-frying chicken, always spread the pieces in the wok and let them cook undisturbed for 1 minute before stirring. This allows the chicken to sear and prevents sticking. To smash the ginger, use the side of a cleaver or chef’s knife……..
