Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Potato Pancakes and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I tried something new. I was at Meijer yesterday with Mom and I cam across some Ham, Artisan Crafted Kentucky Legend Hickory Smoked Ham. It was a small 2 1/2 lb. Ham, and it looked delicious! So I sliced off a few slices and heated it up in a skillet. Served it with a Sunnyside Up fried Egg and 2 slices of toasted Aunt Millie’s Bread (lightly buttered). Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The Ham was moist and absolutely delicious! I’ll be having this a lot more often, glad I came across it at Meijer!

 

 

 

 

 

Outside it was our warmest day in quite some time, 88 degrees and partly cloudy. We still have a lot of stuff to go through out in the shed so I spent most of the day doing that, and still things to go through! Dad has so many tools and things out there that’s never used anymore. For Dinner tonight its a Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Potato Pancakes and Green Beans.

 

 

While at Meijer yesterday I bought a couple of fillets of Walleye. 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!

 

 

So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family love’s these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers.

 

 

 

 

For a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also reheated a couple of slices of leftover Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Golden Hominy

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was a beautiful Sunrise this morning the east horizon was just lit up with color. Finished up a few things around the yard before rain moved back in around 11::00 this morning. For the day it was 58 degrees with rain. The yard is looking a lot better! I was able to finally get caught up with a lot of yard work. Later in the day Hoveround came over to make some repairs on my Hoveround Mobility Chair. Being an amputee I don’t know what I would without my Hoveround! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Golden Hominy.

 


Last time I was at Costco yesterday I bought a package of fresh Canadian Walleye Fillets! There was 7 Fillets in the package, I gave Mom a couple of them that she froze and I had one that day and had froze the rest. So I laid a bag of 2 Fillets out in the fridge to thaw overnight.

 

 

 

So I’m preparing 2 Fillets. 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! Costco has an excellent Fish and Seafood selections!

 

 

As the Fillets were cooking I prepared my side dishes. I prepared a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. It doesn’t get much better for a canned Beans than these! To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are at the top of the list, love the Seasoning.

 

 

 

For another side I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. 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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Purple Asparagus and Roasted Butternut Squash

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Purple Asparagus and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

 

 

For Breakfast I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I need some printer ink and paper, and had to go to Walmart. I’ve learned through the years to go to Walmart early if you have to use the electric mobility carts. They have very few and very few that work. So I hit the store early. Outside it was 20 degrees and we had a high of 40 degrees and partly sunny! That is a heat wave from where we’ve been temperature wise. It melted some of the snow we have on the ground, finally. I stopped by the Bank and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Back home all caught up on everything so I grabbed a long nap, very restless last night. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/Roasted Purple Asparagus and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

While at Meijer yesterday I seen they had Walleye Fillets on sale, and just couldn’t pass them up, I bought 3 Fillets. I rinsed them off in cold water, sliced into smaller pieces, and put them in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge until ready to use today.

 

 

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

I picked up more of the Purple Asparagus at Mejier the Tuesday. It tastes like Green Asparagus but it’s less fibrous and sweeter due to a higher sugar content. I prepared it the same way as the Roasted Asparagus I’ve made before. I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the bacon, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and olive oil and toss to coat. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and that slight sweet taste to it. Really like the Purple Asparagus over the Green Asparagus.

 

Then for one another side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. 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, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 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! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Cut Italian Beans and Italian Pasta Salad

 

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday Morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and Poached an Egg. Served the Poached Egg on top of 1/2 of the Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Beautiful morning out today, about 65 degrees and sunny. The day was sunny and a high of 90 degrees. Mom went to Church and I stayed home to watch Dad. We have to do almost everything for him now and his Dementia seems to be getting worse. Not complaining though at least he’s home with us. Did some laundry and cleaned the house. I still have no hearing in my right ear, starting to get worried. I go back to the doctor Monday afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/ Cut Italian Beans and Italian Pasta Salad, also heated up a bag of Cauliflower and opened up a can of Del Monte Peach Slices.

 

While at Meijer yesterday I seen they had some more of those beautiful looking Walleye Fillets they had just got in and just couldn’t pass them up, I bought 3 Fillets. I rinsed them off in cold water, sliced into smaller pieces, and put them in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge until ready to use today.

 

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

For one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! Love all Beans! Also added a Bag of Cauliflower. Comes in a Steam – Microwave Bag.

 

 

 

 

Also to go with my Walleye I prepared a box of Hidden Valley Pasta Salad – Homestyle Italian. It comes packaged with the Pasta and the Seasoning Packets. I added Sliced Black and Green Olives, Vinegar, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it; I will need: 2 tbsp. vinegar. 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Pour the pasta into 5-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil uncovered for 11 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix the vinegar with contents of seasoning packet. Stir well. Next add the oil and stir well again. Drain the pasta. Rinse with cold water; drain well. Stir pasta into the seasoning mixture. I then added the sliced Black Olives and sliced Green Olives. And it’s ready to serve!Excellent Seasoning, a perfect Pasta Salad.

I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off.

For Breakfast I reheated a piece of the Chopped Bison Steak I had leftover from last night’s Dinner. I also had 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not a bad way to start the day! Well the rain finally stopped and it was mostly sunny and a high of 79 degrees. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out and did some cleaning. Lot of leaves and limbs from the rain and wind of the last day and half. After Lunch I pulled the cart out of the shed and straightened that up and swept it out. Everything done I took the cart out for a ride around the neighborhood, not bad out! For Dinner tonight its a Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Potato Pancakes and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Boiled Yukon Gold Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Beans

 

 

 

I t was one of those restless nights dealing with Phantom Pains all night into the morning before they finally eased up! So there won’t be a whole lot done today except for catching up on some sleep. Went out to get the Sunday Papers this morning and there was 2 Wild Turkeys out in the side yard, first I’ve seen in quite a while! For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast went outside and got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Back inside I did a load of laundry and done for the day. After Lunch I laid down for the afternoon and caught up on sleep! For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Walleye w/ Boiled Yukon Gold Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Beans.

 

 

While at Meijer yesterday I seen they had some beautiful looking Walleye Fillets and just couldn’t pass them up. I rinsed it off in cold water, sliced into smaller pieces, and put them in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge until ready to use today. 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 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!

 

 

For 1 side I boiled some Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes. Picked these up at Meijer also yesterday. To prepare them I took a large pot and filled it half way with water and heated it on high. As the water started to boil I added Salt to the water. I then added the Potatoes and boiled them until fork tender. To serve, I put a few them on the plate and smashed them up a bit. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley along with some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

Then for another side I prepared some Bush’s Reduced Sodium Vegetarian Baked Beans. I had these sometime back and fell in love with the flavor and taste of the Vegetarian Beans! Only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving. To prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Beans! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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.
