Today’s Menu: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a slice of toasted Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Morning showers then cloudy the rest of the day, high of 71 degrees. At 9:30 I had to be back at the Family Lawyer Office to sign the final papers on my Will. Afterward stopped by a house that a friend of mine remodeling and putting it back up for sale. He’s been flipping houses for 5 years now. Good catching up with him. Then stopped by Kroger on the way home to pick up a few items. For Dinner tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut 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 like last time. The package had 20 slices in it and have them in the Freezer. So Last night I grabbed a couple of 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 Medallions 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 baked 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.

 


To go with the Medallions I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
