Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chop w Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Gr 004

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of medium-sized Eggs, made some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, fried a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. A full size Breakfast for a huge appetite this morning! This way more than I usually have for Breakfast. So after Breakfast I did a load of laundry. As that was going I swept and cleaned outside. I wanted to get that done before it was too humid to do anything! Heat index of about 100 degrees today and the humidity was real bad. Finished up laundry and did some house cleaning. Dusted and vacuumed then straightened up the pantry. Full day today! For Dinner tonight i prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Bak 001

 

I grabbed a Pork Chop from the freezer, that I had purchased from Meijer, and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

 

 

Cumin Spiced Monster Pork Chop w Mashed Potatoes 002
Then to prepare my Chop I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

Mashed Potatoes
For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready.

It’s Zucchini…..

 

 

Zucchini helps to Lose Weight: You might be surprised to know that consuming zucchini will help you to lose weight considerably. Zucchini is extremely low in calories, but it gives you the feeling of being full. Therefore, zucchini is a great way to satisfy your appetite without grabbing calories and starting a crash diet plan. Apart from the low calorie count, zucchini has a high water content and is rich in fiber. Hence, when you eat zucchini, your stomach is not empty, thereby making zucchini recipes perfect if you are on diet.

 

 

It also contains vitamin A, magnesium, folate, potassium, copper, and phosphorus . This summer squash also has a high content of omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, niacin, and protein. Moreover, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, and calcium in zucchini assure optimal health.

Today’s Menu: Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced Carrots

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 017
For breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did the morning workout and showered. Then off to Meijer, they had a few items that went on a 2 day sale starting today. Pork Tenderloin Roasts, Buy 1 get one free. Along with some other items, good sale! Hot and very, very humid out. Man I can’t stand this high humidity! Back home did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I tried a new recipe, Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon. I prepared a Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced Carrots.

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 001
I came across this recipe, Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon, on an McCormick Recipe email and couldn’t wait to give it a try! I’ll need the following to make the dish; 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon McCormick® Ground Ginger, 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder, 1 green onion (chopped), and 1 pound salmon fillets.

 

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 006
I purchased the Salmon at Meijer Seafood Department earlier today. To prepare the salmon I first rinsed it off under cold water and patted dry with paper towel and set aside. Next mixed the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic powder and green onion in small bowl. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Placed the salmon in large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerated for 30 minutes. Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Removed the salmon from marinade. Discarded the remaining marinade.

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 010
Baked the salmon for 11 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting the fillet 1/2 way through the baking time with the reserved marinade. The salmon came out perfect, and what flavor! The orange juice, soy sauce, and honey combine for a perfect marinade. Then you get the taste of the ginger and garlic powder, outstanding! A for sure Keeper Recipe! I baked my salmon where the original recipe calls for grilling it. The original recipe and web link are at the end of the post.

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 007
For one side dish I prepared some Sugar Snap Peas, I had picked these up at Kroger the day before.They come packaged fresh. To prepare them I heated 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Olive Oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Added the Sugar Snap Peas, tossing occasionally for 5 to 6 minutes, until the Sugar Snap Peas were crisp tender.

 

 

 

Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon  w Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced C 009
Then for a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Another canned Vegetable that’s as good as fresh. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer until heated through. I also baked a can of Pillsbury Breadsticks. Still searching for a replacement for the Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread in which Pillsbury no longer makes, why no clue it was their best! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookie and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
