Dinner Tonight: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Shells and Cheese
For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Golden Puffs Cereal along with my morning cup of
I picked up the Ocean Perch at Kroger earlier today. Really love the Kroger Seafood Department.
Then for a side I prepared a box of Annie's Shells and Real Aged Cheddar. I've used Annie's products in the past and always enjoyed them. The reason I choose Annie's is on Friday's Kroger runs an online special of a free product. You just log in to the Kroger site and click on it and it goes on your Kroger Card, very good deal every Friday!
To prepare it is preparation like most boxed Mac and Cheese. Boil 6 cups of water in a medium sauce pan. Stir in the Pasta and cook 8-10 minutes.When done drain the Pasta. Next add 3 tbsp of low fat Milk to a warm sauce pan. Sprinkle the Cheese packet over the Milk and stir to combine. Finally add the Pasta back to that saucepan and stir until well mixed. And done! Excellent Mac and Cheese! Tender and nice flavor, goes great with the Perch! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
Ocean perch is mild tasting yet a bit sweet, with a moderately firm texture. The meat is lean, moist and flaky. Large ocean perch develop a coarse texture. Deep-skinned ocean perch with the fat line removed has the most delicate flavor. The flesh is white, though not as light as cod, and it turns opaque white when cooked.Whole fish may have bulging eyes and distended air bladders, which is a result of being brought up from great depths, not an indication of poor quality.

Annie's Shells and Real Aged Cheddar
Annie’s Cheddar Mac (as we call it!) is our answer to all those chemically orange colored cheeses out there. We’ve taken our original Shells & White Cheddar and added a little color to it, naturally! Our totally natural cheese is colored with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to color foods such as butter, cheese and mustard. The annatto tree grows 20 to 30 feet in height and when its seeds are stirred in water, they produce orange annatto dye, also called achiote, to color foods. Annie’s Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that “orange” cheese on their macaroni.
