Dinner Tonight: Potato Crusted Cod Bites w/ Mac and Cheese
For Breakfast this morning I fried 2 Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Scrambled 2 medium size Eggs, toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green. Life is good! After Breakfast I started Mom's laundry for her and then did some light cleaning around the house. Today is use it or lose it day! Our garbage runs tomorrow so any leftovers have to be used today or its in the garbage. Not that many today. Outside its another beautiful Fall Day out, sunny and 67 degrees. It was 40 degrees this morning, a bit cooler. Anyway it was on outside to do some cleaning. Lot of leaves already this year. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. Then I installed a new outdoor thermometer on the shed, looks good. Had everything done by Lunch so after Lunch I got the cart out for a while this afternoon., really beautiful out today. For Dinner tonight I tried a new Item I came across Gorton's Potato Crusted Cod Bites. Tonight its Potato Crusted Cod Bites w/ Mac and Cheese.
While at Kroger I came across a new item, Gorton's Seafood Appetizer Potato Crusted Cod Bites. These must be a fairly new item because they are not listed on the Gorton's website. So, they come frozen in a box of 28 pieces. The box description reads; Bite-sized pieces of white flaky cod fillets in a potato coating. Sounds good to me!There's 8 pieces per serving and their 180 calories and 16 net carbs per serving.
To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Arrange the Cod on a foil lined baking sheet. Then bake 17-19 minutes, flip after 12 minutes. The internal temperature of the Bites should be at 145 degrees. Mine took a full 19 minutes. They come out golden brown and delicious! They were seasoned perfectly, I'll keep a box of these in the freezer. Great for Snacks, Lunch, and Dinner as I'm having tonight.
To go with the Cod Bites what better than Mac and Cheese! I used Kraft Macaroni and Cheese – Triple Cheese. It comes in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. For dessert tonight a bowl of Breyer's Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with Smucker's Sugarless Chocolate Fudge Topping.
