Happy First Day of Autumn Everybody! And what a perfect Fall Day it’s been! About 42 and sunny this morning and a high of 68 and sunshine all day. Went to my Aunt’s 82nd Birthday Party this afternoon. She’s in assisted living but she’s doing pretty good. Good to see a lot of the family, and all their kids who are getting big. Then for dinner tonight I prepared Chicken Fried Cubed Pork Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes, White Gravy, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Biscuits. Nothing like a good old Country Dinner on a Sunday!
I had a package of Walmart Cubed Pork Steak in the freezer that I had laid out in the fridge overnight to thaw. Had the big three to bread them with; Flour, EggBeater’s, and Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Flour with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then seasoned the Egg Beater‘s with Hungarian Sweet Paprika and used Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I first rolled the Cubed Steaks in the seasoned Flour, shaking off the excess. Next I dipped them in the seasoned Egg Beater’s again shaking off the excess. The final step was to roll them in the Italian Style Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides were well covered. When that’s complete I pan fried them in a medium size skillet, in Canola Oil. Fried them until both sides were Golden Brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. They came out the perfect Golden Brown on the outside and moist and flavorful on the inside! I like using the Pork Cubed Steaks over the Beef, their more tender, less stringy, and healthier.
For side dishes I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare them just heat them up in the microwave for 6 minutes or so and their ready. To top my Mashed Potatoes and Cubed Pork Steak I made some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. Another quick and easy prep and comes out piping hot and delicious. I topped both my Mashed Potatoes and Cubed Steak with it. I also boiled some Mini carrots and baked a small container of Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Layer Biscuits. Whole Grain Bread would have been fewer calories but Biscuits with this Dinner is perfect! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Sort of a long day, I had some routine blood work done a couple of days ago while at a checkup with my new family doctor and I was told today that the blood work came back showing an elevated Liver count. Which is more than likely being caused by the Cholesterol Meds I’m taking. But when I hear of something off or not normal it always brings back some real bad memories. Staying positive, go back to the Doc on Wednesday. Then on top of that I got a letter stating that my Anthem Medicare Supplement insurance was going up $12.02 a month. Plus because I’m not 65 no other options are available so I’m at their mercy, pay it or don’t have any. I’ve had better days! on a more positive note, for dinner I prepared a Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.
I purchased the Roast from Kroger yesterday, a Pork Loin Boneless Roast with a JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub already on it. To prepare it I laid the Roast out for about 20 minutes to get it to room temperature. I placed the roast in a shallow pan and roast in a 350 degrees F. oven for 1 hour (about 20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Removed it from oven; let rest about 10 minutes before slicing to served. It will serve about 6-7, with leftovers! The Roast came out moist and delicious, the JB’s Fat Boy Rub gave it a great flavor. The juice and drippings from the Roast were incredible! I also had a side of the JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Sauce on the side for dipping but used very little because I kept readding the juices and drippings to the Roast and it needed no other flavor or seasoning.
I made a couple of sides to go with the Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Brown Mushroom Gravy, and Cut Green Beans. The Mashed Potatoes were my favorite, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. The Gravy was Heinz Brown Mushroom Gravy and the Beans were Del Monte Less Sodium Cut Green Beans. A hearty and delicious dinner to end sort of a bad day. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Fudge Bar.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Fried Steak w/ White Peppered Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Biscuits
I wanted a tasty down home meal for dinner and this is what I prepared, Chicken Fried Steak w/ White Peppered Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Biscuits. I used a Kroger’s Private Selection Cubed Veal Steak. To prepare it I used the 3 bowl method. I first seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then rolled it in flour (1), shaking off the excess, and then rolled the Veal in Egg Beater’s with added Paprika (2) and finally rolling it in a Italian Style Bread Crumb and Parmesan Cheese mix (3). I then pan fried it in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, turning once making sure both sides were a golden brown. Golden brown is what it was and with the combination of all the seasonings and coatings it turned out delicious! Veal at times can be a bit tough but this was fork tender. I topped it with White Gravy. I used Pioneer Brand White Peppered Gravy. I love this Gravy! It’s easily prepared and is a thick and well seasoned Gravy.
For side dishes I had Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes topped with the White Peppered Gravy. Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes are as good home made Mashed Potatoes and a lot easier and quicker to make. I also warmed up the Sugar Snap Peas that were leftover from the other night along with a small can of Pillsbury Grand JR’s Biscuits.The leftover Veal, Gravy and Biscuits will make a great Breakfast in the morning! For dessert a slice of the Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Pork Chops w/ Seasoned Corn, Mashed Potatoes, and French Bread
It looks as though our hot and humid weather has returned to the Ohio Valley, and it’s going to last through out the week. For dinner I had a Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Corn, Mashed Potatoes, and fresh baked French Bread. I seasoned the Chop with McCormick Grinder Sea salt and Black Peppercorn along with a light coat of flour. I then pan fried it in Extra virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side on medium heat. As a rule they always say to get your Pork at thermometer reading of 165 degrees. After frying the Chop I topped it with J B’s Fat Boy Haug Waush Bar b cue Sauce. Love Pork Chops!
For sides I heated up a can of Margaret Holme’s Seasoned Corn, I’ve been using Margaret Holmes products for a while now. I also had Idahoan 4 Cheese Mashed Potatoes. Another very easy side to fix. Just add water and microwave and you have some tasty Mashed Potatoes. Then I baked some more of the delicious French Bread I had purchased from Walmart yesterday. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Happy Easter everyone! I hope yours was relaxing and delicious as ours was. We had a Prime Rib Roast that was slowed roasted at 250 degrees until the roast read 120 degrees. It came out tender and delicious! The ends were about medium rare while the middle was rare. We used the used the juices and tidbits at the bottom of the roasting pan to pour back over meat after we sliced it making just that more juicy. Plenty of leftovers too which will make some primo prime rib sandwiches!
For sides we had Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes that we topped with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. We also had Green Beans and baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free. Happy Easter all!

Chops, Taters, and Beans Oh My! Makes a mighty tasty dinner. I had a Pork Loin Chop that I marinated in J B‘s Fat Boy HaugWaush Barbque Sauce for about 3 hours in the fridge. I then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Grillmates Applewood Rub and baked at 350 degrees for 35 minutes and then flipping it over and baked another 20 minutes, or until it’s at 165 degrees. The baking time will vary according to how thick your chop is. Comes out moist and tender bursting with great flavor! J B’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs are the best on the market as far as I’m concerned.
For sides I had Mashed Potatoes topped with Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy, Green Beans, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free Whip Cream.

Back by popular demand, by my parents, for dinner the Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs! I used Kroger Pork Baby Back Ribs. While I had the crock pot warming up I cut the rack of Ribs in half, to fit in the crock pot, and seasoned the Ribs with JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub and I then brushed on a half a bottle of JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce. I cooked the ribs for 8 hours on low in the crock pot. After 5 hours I applied the other half of Haugwaush to the Ribs. The ribs came out tender fall off the bone delicious. No knife needed as the bones could be removed by just pulling on them. My rub and sauce are both J B’s Fat Boy products. So far Kroger and on-line are the only places I’ve seen that you can purchase J B’s products.
