Instead of throwing away apple peels, saute them in butter, then spice them with sugar and cinnamon.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Golden Hominy
For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg Sunnyside Up, heated up 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Now that’s a Breakfast, I was starving this morning! Lot of rain today, started overnight. Bad timing for all the rain, today is Opening Day in Cincinnati! The Reds first game of the season is like a Holiday in this area. It all starts off with the Findlay Market Parade. The Parade first started in 1920 and has become a tradition. But the rain is putting a damper on everything. I stayed in today and the house a major cleaning and did a load of laundry for Mom. Dad is starting therapy today so we’ll see how that goes. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Golden Hominy.
I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Florida. They just dropped off 4 bags of Grouper they caught just 4 days ago! I had a couple of the fillets in a bag in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish and Love this Grouper!
Then for another side I prepared some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area, only 1 store around here locally that sells them (Thank you Jungle Jim’s).
For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and its been a while since I’ve any. For those that has never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
Oven-Roasted Fingerling Potato Fries
1.) Thoroughly clean and scrub the potatoes.
2.) Cut the potatoes in half and add to a large mixing bowl.
3.) Add the olive oil. I used about 1 tablespoon, but this will vary by how many potatoes you use. Just use enough oil to give the potatoes a nice coat. Add your seasonings.
4.) Put on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the Parmesan Grated Cheese
5.) Roast in the oven for 25-35 minutes at 450 degrees. The potatoes should be tender in the middle when done.
Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri
The secret of authentic Southern style fried fish is the crispy combination of cornmeal, corn flour, spices and lemon juice captured in this special Zatarain’s Frying Mix.
