Today’s Menu: Fried Shrimp with Rotini and Cheese
fried-shrimp-with-rotini-and-cheese-010
For Breakfast I Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs, Prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hashbrowns, and toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter). Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a lot rain, and even thunder, overnight. It broke a record high temperature yesterday, 70 degrees! And today wasn’t bad, mostly sunny and 43 degrees. Drove over to a friend of mine house. He had a heart bypass and is finally back home. Says he feels better now than he’s felt in the last 2 years. He looked and sounded great! On the way back home stopped the ATM and then got gas before heading back home. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Shrimp with Rotini and Cheese.

While at Kroger yesterday I purchased some more of the huge Freshwater Shrimp.I rinsed them off in cold water and removed the shells, they were already deveined, and put them in a Hefty Zip Bag in the fridge. To prepare these I’m using Zatarain’s Shrimp Fri – Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix.
fried-shrimp-with-rotini-and-cheese-006
Poured about 1 inch of olive oil into large skillet. Heat oil to 350°F on medium heat. Take the peeled shrimp, mix 1/2 6cup Zatarain’s Seasoned Shrimp Fri with 1/2 cup water in medium bowl. Pour additional 1/2 cup Shrimp Fri onto plate or into plastic bag. Dip shrimp in the batter. Shake off excess. Roll or shake shrimp in remaining 1/2 cup Shrimp Fri until evenly coated. Discard any remaining batter in bowl or Shrimp Fri on plate or in plastic bag. Fry the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in hot oil until light golden brown. Drain on paper towels and served. The Zatarain’s Shrimp Fri is an excellent breading for Shrimp! Nice light coating with great flavor.
Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese (2)
To go with the Shrimp I prepared a box of Kraft – Velveeta Rotini and Cheese, Whole Grain. I don’t use a lot of Mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. To prepare it; Boil  6 cups water. Stir in shell pasta. Cook 8-10 min., Stirring occasionally. Drain pasta, don’t rinse. Return it to pan. Add cheese sauce; stir. And you have some creamy and cheesy Mac and Cheese! It’s just a flat out Pasta and Cheese Comfort Food Heaven! Excellent tasting Rotini Pasta and with the Cheese, perfect. Shrimp and Pasta is a perfect pairing! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

For Breakfast on this chilly Saturday Morning I Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it’s our coldest morning in quite a while, 28 degrees! After Breakfast, Mom and Dad wanted McDonald’s for Breakfast so I went up and got it for them. Noticed that gas now has dropped to $1.71 a gallon. Not a lot to do today. Did some cleaning around the house. Had everything done so I kicked back and caught up on some programs I had recorded and watching some College Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Shrimp with Rotini and Cheese.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Salmon Patties w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese

 
It was a full day of leftovers for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner! For Breakfast I reheated some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, reheated 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Mom and Dad went on to Church this morning so I gave the house a good cleaning today. Ran the vacuum, dusted, and did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Outside, what a beautiful day! Sunny and in the 60’s! But they say cooler weather and possible light snow moving back in by mid-week. Went outside and cleaned and swept the deck and driveway. Even got the 4 wheel cart out for a spin this afternoon. Beautiful day out. For Lunch I reheated a Ball Park Turkey Frank and served on a Flax Seed Pita Bread. Then for dinner it was leftover Salmon Patties w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese.

 

Salmon Patties w Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese 005
I reheated the leftover Salmon Patties w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese that I had prepared the day before. Reheated both items in the microwave. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink with dinner. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar. The original post for the Salmon and Pasta is below.

 

 

 

 

Golden Brown

Golden Brown

I’m using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Egg Beater’s (1/4 cup), a couple of shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce, Dried Parsley, and Kroger Low Fat Saltine Crackers. To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved a total of 20 calories and 2 full grams of fat. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. I’m starting to have to have these more often, they came out golden brown and delicious!

Today’s Menu: Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage

 
Rolled out to grab the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out, about 26 degrees with a breeze. The day turned out sunny and in the 40’s. Started the morning off with Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, Eckrich Turkey Breakfast SausageSkillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w Hardwood Smoked 003 Links, 1 slice Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Bad day with Dad today, did Mom’s laundry for her she had her hands full today. Dad’s health is getting worse every day. For lunch I made everybody Pot Roast Sandwiches for lunch, used the delicious leftovers from last night’s dinner. That’s one fine recipe to keep! Did some light cleaning around the house and cleaned both our cutting boards. Used a combo of Course Sea Salt and a Lemon, works great as a cleaner on cutting boards. For dinner tonight I prepared Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked French Bread.

 

Wanted a good Comfort Food Dinner tonight and what better combination than a Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w/ Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage Dinner. I love Mac and Cheese but don’t have it a lot due to the carbs and calories, I have Diabetes 2. But every now and then I give in to the craving and fix a bowl. I do always try to use Whole Grain or Whole Wheat Pastas.

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 003
Then for the Turkey Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I took one of the Sausages and cut it in to bite size pieces. I took a medium size skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. Added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. When the skillet was heated up I added the Turkey Sausage pieces. I cooked them about 12 minutes, stirring them frequently until browned and heated through. When the Sausage was ready I then added it to my pan of Pasta, gently stirring till mixed.

 

 

Skillet Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese w Hardwood Smoked 006

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fillet w/ Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese

 

 

Panko Crusted orange Roughy and mac 003
It’s been a cool, cloudy, and rainy day out today. Did some laundry early this morning and then had a doctor’s appointment late afternoon. The paper work for my new Hovaround was filled out incorrectly, so now I have to go again so they can verify I’m still an amputee! I’ll be quiet, I don’t want to get started on this. For dinner tonight, Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fillet w/ Kraft Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese.

 

 
I used the other half of the Orange Roughy from last nights dinner for my dinner tonight. To prepare the Fillet, I rinsed the fillet and pat dry and then seasoned it with Sea Salt and Pepper. Combine flour and Hungarian Sweet Paprika mix well, then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dip floured fillets into Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Then roll the fillets in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko. Meanwhile, heated a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in skillet and place the fillet in the oil and fry 4 minutes each side. It comes out a beautiful golden brown on the outside and a moist flavorful fillet on the inside! Fantastic recipe for Fish.

 

 

 
Then to go with my fillet I made some Kraft/Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. Love Mac and Cheese but just don’t eat too often anymore due to a higher calorie and carb count than most sides I eat anymore. But every now and then is ok. So I used a box of the Kraft/Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese, first time I’ve used this one in quite a while. To prepare it; Boil 6 cups water. Stir in shell pasta. Cook 8-10 min., Stirring occasionally. Note: don’t overcook pasta. Drain pasta, don’t rinse. Return it to pan. Add cheese sauce; stir. This makes some of the best Pasta and Cheese you’ll have. The sauce is thick and cheesy, just add Sea Salt and Pepper to taste. Fish with Mac and Cheese is just a natural combo! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Ham and Cheese Panini w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese

 

 

Ham Panini mac and cheese 007
Breezy but at least it’s sunny out today, a high in the low 50’s. Went to bank and on to Walmart and Kroger. I picked up a few items at walmart for myself and then Mom had a small list of items she wanted from Kroger that I picked up for her. Then a lot of computer updates and virus scans. In case you haven’t heard there was a big security breach that could affect a lot of on-line users. Everyone should check their on-line accounts. For dinner tonight I prepared a Ham and Cheese Panini w/ Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Ham Panini mac and cheese 004
For my Panini I used Kroger Brand Private Selection Off- the Bone Smoked Ham. One of my favorite packaged sliced Hams. It has a really great taste to it. I also used Sargento Ultra Thin Pepper-Jack Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo, and a Flatout Foldit 100% Whole Wheat with Flax Flatbread. Used my Panini Sandwich Press. I love using this, I make a lot of Panini for Lunch. Made the Sandwich and put it in the Press for about 4 minutes and it was ready! The Ham, Pepper-Jack, and Mayo are a great combination for a Panini.

 

 

 
I had been wanting some Mac and Cheese for a while now so tonight my side with the Panini was Mac and Cheese. I used Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese. I don’t use a lot of mac and Cheese due to the calories and carbs but the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese isn’t too bad, plus every now and then doesn’t hurt. I left all the product info on the Velveeta Whole Grain Rotini and Cheese at the end of the post. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.
