Today’s Menu: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Bourbon and Fresh Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another day of scattered rain and high of 80 degrees. Plenty of rain, and we needed it. Cleaned the Kitchen and Pantry then after Lunch I did some work on my computer. Took the processor apart and cleaned out all the dust. Then ran scans and deleted a lot of old files and pictures. For Dinner tonight its – Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Bourbon and Fresh Green Beans.

 

 

On my last visit to Costco I had bought another package of the always delicious Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions. They cut it fresh for me and seasoned it as I shopped. The package had 20 slices in it and have them in the Freezer. So Last night I grabbed the last packages out of the freezer and let them thaw overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

 

To start I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare them I used a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. I then lightly Salted the Pork with Sea Salt and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Parsley. Added the Pork to the skillet and cooked it for 2 minutes a side, as it just started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillets! I then backed them to a medium rare, 145 degrees in the center of the medallions using a meat thermometer. Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorites. The Pork is so tender and flavorful. Seasoned just right and so moist. I’ll have to get to Costco to pick up another package of these soon!

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, 1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

 

For another side I cooked up the last bag of the fresh Green Beans. Mom’s Cousin dropped some more of them off to us that they had grown. Had to string them and break them up. Then boiled them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these fresh Green Beans! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet 1/2 and 1/2 Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.
