Today’s Menu: Baked Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

 

To start my morning off I toasted a Thomas Light 100 Calorie Multigrain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather again. It’s been in the 50’s and 60’s and it was 29 degrees this morning and a high of 37 degrees, mostly cloudy. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. On the way back home I stopped and got gas and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Later on grabbed a broom and the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Whole Seasoned Roaster Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf.

 

 

 

 

I had posted a while back that they opened a new Super Kroger store to repalce the smaller Kroger up the road from us. The other day when I was there I seen that they had the PERDUE® OVEN READY WHOLE SEASONED ROASTER. With the bigger store comes way more of selections of food! The prices are still high though which is why if I have time I go to Meijer or Walmart to do most of my shopping. Anyway it was great finding the Perdue Roaster again!

 

 

 

 

 

As I said it came frozen so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it is a breeze! It came frozen and its in a cooking bag, ready for the oven! To start I first preheat the oven to 400°F. I Cut open outer bag and removed Oven Ready Roaster, sealing in a cooking bag. Placed in a shallow roasting pan, breast side up. Cut a 1 inch slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. The instructions said that the Cooking bag will expand during cooking and to allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls. The instructions say the best way to prepare it is from fresh. Once oven had been pre-heated to 400°F, I lowered oven temperature to 350°F. Placed the pan with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roasted for approximately 2 hours 10 minutes until a meat thermometer registered an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

 

 

 

Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer Roaster to serving plate or cutting board. Removed the string from legs and carved. The Chicken came out perfect! Moist, juicy, and flat-out delicious! So glad I can find these again!

 

 

 

 

 


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

 

 

 

 

 


Then for another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. Just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I also had come across a loaf the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Loaf Bread buried in the freezer. So I baked that. Still haven’t found a place that carries it since Meijer no longer has it. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

PERDUE® OVEN READY WHOLE SEASONED ROASTER
Perfectly seasoned, juicy and convenient. Perdue’s Oven Ready Roaster cooking bag saves time on traditional roasting and makes cleanup a snap. Fresh, refrigerated.

COOKING and PREP

* OPEN: Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster, sealing in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan or baking dish, breast side up.

* SLIT: Cut a 1 inch slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. Note: Cooking bag will expand during cooking; allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls.

* COOK: From FRESH (Preferred Method): Once oven has been pre-heated to 400°F, lower oven temperature to 350°F. Place pan or baking dish with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 2 hours 10 minutes (130 minutes) until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

* COOK: From FROZEN: Once oven has been pre-heated to 400°F, lower oven temperature to 350°F. Place pan or baking dish with Oven Ready Roaster (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 4 hours until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the breast.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, my favorite. We are finally above freezing, a high of 40 degrees! Rain moving in overnight but still in the 40’s. I was going to go to Meijer after Breakfast but Mom was a little under the weather so I stayed home to keep an eye on her. So just did laundry and and cleaned the house later. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I love the Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips, it’s always a great go to when you want that easy to prepare meal! I had not had these in a about a month or so. I switched over to Perdue Chicken Strips for a while so I wanted to change it back to Pilgrim’s. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the Chicken Strip . And Chicken is served! It’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

 

 


For one side I heated up a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes from last night. Just microwave for 3 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes. I also made a package of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a side I cooked a Jar of the Canned Green Beans we had Canned over the Summer. Then boiled them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they so fresh! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a Couple of Eggs, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Patties, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 50 degrees outside! Not bad weather for January. After Breakfast went McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs for Dinner so I got those on early today. Then it house cleaning today. Dusted, Vacuumed, and did a load of laundry. Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

 

 

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Prime Rib, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans


For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A little later I had to take our vacuum to the repair shop. I cracked one of the wheels and it would have taken 5-6 weeks to order one on-line and receive it. So the repair shop said it should be repaired by Friday. Then stopped and got Mom Breakfast at McDonald’s and filled the car up with gas. Later I went to Kroger for a few items. For Dinner tonight its leftovers from Christmas Dinner! I reheat the leftover Prime Rib, Mashed Potatoes, Canned Green Beans, and Hawaiian Rolls. For Dessert a slice of Apple Pie. Mom had a baked an Apple Pie and a Pecan Pie the day before. Both were made using Splenda Sweetner.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared French Toast and Sausage. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Cinnamon. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain almost all day on and off, 46 degrees. Good day to stay in, which I needed. Up most of the night battling the Phantom Pains. They started about 9:00 last night and didn’t let up until about 11:00 this morning. It was one long night! So after the Phantom Pains stopped I caught up on some much needed sleep. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a Bone – In Pork Loin Chop and had it in the freezer. I grabbed the Chop from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. 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 1/4 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 pork to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 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!

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 


For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these several times now and really love them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach 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.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

I tried something new for Breakfast this morning, a Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Turkey Sausage. It’s an Egg White, Turkey Sausage, and Cheddar Cheese Scramble. Just microwave it in the container it came in for about 1 minute and 40 seconds and done! Heated up perfect and I enjoyed it. Plenty of Egg White and Turkey Sausage, I did add an extra sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a shake of Salt and Pepper. Plus it’s only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving! I’ll be buying more of these! Had some snow flurries overnight, nothing major. For the day it was 38 degrees and mostly cloudy. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the kitchen today. Cleaned out the fridge and freezer, cleaned the stove, and straightened up the pantry. For Dinner tonight its Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

 

 

I purchased a package of Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger the other day and having them tonight for Dinner. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

 

 


To start I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 8 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 


I got a plate and put paper towel on it and removed the Chicken Thighs from the skillet to the lined plate. Paper towel absorbs any of the excess oil. Just love the crust on the Chicken provided by the Flour Coating! The Flour and cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet. The Chicken Thighs were moist and flat out delicious!

 

 

 

 

 


For one side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

 


For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a few times now and really love them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chicken Thighs – One medium, baked chicken thigh with skin provides 140 calories, 14 grams of protein, 0 grams of carbohydrate, 9 grams of fat, 3 grams of saturated fat, 4 grams of monounsaturated fat, 2 gram of polyunsaturated fat, and 275 milligrams of sodium.

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 toasted Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 35 degrees and rain this morning. Rained most of the day and a high of 55 degrees. Having a rough day with allergies today and with weather being bad it’s a good day just to relax and take it easy. For Dinner tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 


I’m using the Costco the always delicious Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions. 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. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

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.
