Almond/Cashew Crusted Dijon Mahi Mahi

So I’ve been eating a lot healthier….but I needed to add some crunch to my life lol so I put a twist on my favorite fish, Mahi Mahi.

Grind some of your favorite nuts (pecans, almonds, or cashews) in a blender or food processor. Don’t over do it though…you aren’t trying to make peanut butter.

image

Get some pretty planks of mahi mahi

image

Season them to taste. I prefer garlic herb or lemon pepper seasoning.

image

Slather the fish in dijon mustard. Or for a healthier choice (which I chose) use Bolthouse Farms Honey Mustard yogurt dressing.

image

Coat the fish in the nuts.

image

Put a little olive oil in a pan (just enough to coat the bottom of the pan.) Cook fish until a crust forms. It should be brown but not burnt.

Bon appetit!! Yummy!!

Halloween Party Foods

Hey ya’ll

I was going to throw a Halloween party but instead I threw a surprise party for my boyfriend this week (Happy Birthday Ray!)

Since I won’t be using them, I’ve decided to share these Halloween party foods with you!

https://i1.wp.com/media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/originals/3f/ee/47/3fee47c01ef434b79c7a8c94e61b9c43.jpg

Vomit Dip

Use avocado or spinach dip and pair it with chips or crackers.

Trail the dip out of the pumpkin to add the gross effect

Blood Jello Shots
This is one of my faves!

Make 1 pkg of strawberry or strawberry kiwi jello according to the box instructions. Then mix in 1/2 cup vodka,

1/4 cup Midori/melon liqueur and 1/4 cup peach schnapps. Draw the liquid up in the syringes and refrigerate overnight!

Blood Clot Brain Cupcakes

Blood Clot Cupcakes

For the more skilled (which I claim to be LOL)

Click here for instructions on how to make these!

Cannibal Feast

Gross looking…I know LOL

Get a skull from any arts and crafts store (Hobby Lobby or dollar store) and cover with lunch meat

Use spare ribs as the chest cavity. A bell pepper is the heart, 2 chicken thighs for the lungs, and link sausage for the intestines.

And of course it all has to be slathered in BBQ sauce!

Finger Food

Cut knuckles into mini wieners and also cut the front of the top off. Boil. Add blood (ketchup) to the top and bottom of the wiener.

Add a nail (onion) for the finished look!

Dirty Q-Tips

Large toothpicks with peanut butter (or caramel) dipped marshmallows on both ends

Kitty Litter Cake

 Bake 2 cakes (chocolate and yellow) and crumble. Make 1 box of instant vanilla pudding and chill. Grind 1 package of golden Oreo cookies in a food processor until a sandy consistency. Separate 1/4 cup of the ground cookies in another bowl and mix in five drops of green food coloring. Mix crumbled cake, large portion of ground cookies, and pudding and put in a pan or NEW kitty litter box. Put several unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in the microwave for 12 seconds or until soft; then shape them into poop. Place them in and on top of the cake, randomly, covering some with “litter.” Add the green-specked cookies as scent crystals. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I hope I grossed you out LOL.

If you make any of these let me know how it goes!

   Happy Halloween

Spicy Andouille Sausage
Chicken Breasts
Okra
Corn
Onions
Louisiana Cajun Gumbo Mix
Bisquik biscuit mix
Boil In Bag Rice

While the meat and rice is cooking, prepare your bisquik mix as the bag instructs.

image

Combine gumbo mix and 2 qts water or chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Make sure there are no lumps!

image

Cut up the meat.

image

Once mixture comes to a boil add meat and veggies. Boil until veggies are done.

Put rice in the bottom of a pan, then spoon mixture on top of it(do not over fill) and cover with bisquik mix. Put in the oven on 450° for 10-15 minutes. Leave a little on the side to add on your plate later.

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cups sugar

Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the wide end. Pinch to seal and cover apple and place in the baking dish. {This is easier if you first pat the apple wedge dry, then wrap dough around it.}

Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Heat, whisking to combine. The mixture will slowly combine and thicken. When it’s thickened, remove from heat and add vanilla.

Pour cinnamon mixture over the apple dumplings. Pour soda over the dumplings.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
They’re best when served immediately, with a scoop of Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.
However if you want to save them for later, be sure to separate the dumpling from the excess liquid that remains after baking.

Enjoy!
