Bison and Vegetable Kabobs with Couscous Salad
This recipe for bison and vegetable kabobs with couscous salad is a great way to bring big flavors to a healthy diet.

Recipe Ingredients:
1/2 cup and 1/4 cup, extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon basil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon thyme
1 (16-ounce) package baby bella mushrooms, washed and drained
1 red onion
1 red pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 yellow pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 green pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 bison steaks, cut into 1 inch pieces
Skewers
1 1/2 cups water, boiling (salted if desired)
1 1/2 cups instant couscous
1 green onion, sliced
Roasted squash and tomatoes
1 orange

Cooking Directions:
1 – To a measuring cup add a 1/2 cup of the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, granulated garlic, cracked black pepper, oregano, basil, sea salt, and thyme. Whisk to combine all the ingredients.
2 – Now pour half of this marinade into a bowl with the baby bello mushrooms, the red onion and the red, yellow and green peppers. Toss to coat. Save the tops and the bottoms of the peppers to add to the couscous salad later.
3 – To a medium bowl with the bison, add the other half of the marinade and toss.
4 – Now skewer the marinated vegetables and bison. Keep them separate because the bison will cook a lot faster than the vegetables.
5 – To a pot of 1 1/2 cups boiling water, add the couscous and cover, turning the heat off.
6 – Cook the vegetable skewers on the grill for 10 to 12 minutes, turning frequently, and then cook the bison skewers for about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
7 – Pour the cooked couscous into a large bowl and add the chopped reserved peppers, green onion, squash and tomatoes, 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil and juice from 1/2 of the orange. Toss to combine.
8 – Serve with the skewers placed on top of the couscous salad.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic & Herb Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic & Herb Potatoes

 

 

 

I had a cup pf Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. After my Tea I went to Kroger to finish up my grocery shopping. Stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I had to make another Doctor’s appointment for my Sinuses. They have been driving me crazy for the past 2 weeks. He wrote another prescription to see if it would work any better than the last one. Just rested the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight its a Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic & Herb Potatoes and Baked Multi Grain Bread Loaf.

 

While at Meijer yesterday I picked up some more of that delicious Rainbow Trout that I had yesterday, a Salmon Fillet, and a couple of Walleye Fillet that I’m preparing tonight! I really love the Meijer Seafood Department, good selection and decent prices. I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I 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 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!

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 2 small packages of Diced Butternut Squash at Meijer. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

 

For another side I picked up a package of Little Potato Company Garlic and Herb Potatoes at Meijer. They come in a tin, ready for the oven container. Preheated the oven to 450 and sat the container on a small baking sheet. It comes with a Seasoning Packet of Garlic and Herb. I first brushed the Potatoes with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoned them with Seasoning Packet. Baked the for 45 minutes. The Potatoes came out perfect. Really enjoyed the Seasoning on them. Served them with a side of Daisy Light Sour Cream. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

MAPLE DIJON CHICKEN WITH BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH
This is a great recipe for fall with two seasonal favorites, brussels sprouts and butternut squash. Butternut squash is sometimes known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma.

Ingredients

4 chicken thighs
4 chicken drumsticks
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP unsalted butter
16 Brussels sprouts (about 8 ounces), bottom trimmed, outer leaves removed, and halved
2 cups diced (1/2 inch) butternut squash
2 TBSP maple syrup
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1-1/2 cup chicken stock

Directions

1 – In a saute pan large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.
2 – Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
3 – Add chicken to pan, skin side down and saute for about 4-5 minutes per side or until chicken is browned.
4 – Remove chicken from pan and reserve.

6 – Remove from pan and hold separately from chicken.
7 – Turn heat to high and add stock, syrup and mustard. Stir and bring to a boil, stirring to scrape up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
8 – Add chicken back to the pan, cover, and reduce heat to medium low.
9 – Cook over medium low heat for 20-25 minutes or until chicken registers 170 degrees F with an instant read thermometer.
10 – Add vegetables back to pan, cover again, and cook for another 8-10 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
11 – Remove chicken and vegetables to a serving platter, placing vegetables around chicken.
12 – Turn heat to high and boil sauce until it is reduced and slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
13 – Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
