White Lake Perch w/ 3 Cheese Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots

Dinner Tonight: White Lake Perch w/ 3 Cheese Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots

For Breakfast I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and fried 2 Jennie - O Turkey
Sausage Mini Links. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Wow, it poured the rain last night and then rained some more. Last night it was even thundering and lightening. If this had come in as snow we have got around 10 inches! But by morning the rains had stopped and it started getting windy and colder, cloudy out all day. Our new Hoover Cordless Sweeper came in yesterday, so I put that together and got it charged. While that was charging I used the old sweeper and vacuumed and dusted. Had everything done by Lunch so I could kick back and watch an afternoon of NFL Football. Then for Dinner tonight I prepared White Lake Perch w/ 3 Cheese Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots.


I had purchased the White Lake Perch at Meijer and had already cleaned it and had it in the freezer. I laid the bag of Perch in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets; I first took a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to the pan and heated it medium heat. With the pan heating I got the fillets ready. I'll be seasoning them with Morton's Lite Salt and Zatarain's Seasoned Fish-Fri Seafood Breading Mix.

Using a tin pie pan, I filled it with 3 tablespoons of the Zatarain's Mix. Next I seasoned the Perch
with the Lite Salt. Then rolled the fillets in the Breading mix, completely covering them. Then added a few of them to the preheated skillet. I fried them 3 minutes per side. They came out a golden brown! The Perch was delicious, just love fresh water fish as I do all Fish. Meijeris about the only store that carries the White Perch and they also will have Yellow Lake Perch from time to time.

For one side I prepared a package of the Little Potato Company, 3 Cheese Potatoes. While at Meijer I
picked up a package of the Little Potato Company 3 Cheese Potatoes. I had tried the Savory Herb a couple of times now and really enjoy them, being the Potato Freak I am! So tonight I gave the 3 Cheese a try and everyone enjoyed it. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have on hand! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

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.
