Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 89 degrees, sunny, and humid outside. Still no word on my Scan results, waiting is the toughest part sometimes. I got my yard work and watering done early. I went around and took in a lot of my neighbor’s garbage cans for them after the garbage ran. I took Mom’s car and filled it with gas and then I had it washed. Later I picked a bag full of different Peppers and took them over to my Cousin’s. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer the other day. Then 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 you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot. Again just flat out delicious Fall off the Bone Ribs! And the JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Seasoning is so good on these Pork Ribs!

 

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 a snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a bottle of Diet Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

To start this Thursday morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We have a hot one out there today, but no way am I complaining! Sunny and not a cloud in the sky but low humidity. I had to get the Sunscreen on before going out the door. After my Tea I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home I helped another elderly neighbor up the street paint his shed. We’ll get his Shutters tomorrow. Nice to be out in this beautiful weather!  So for Dinner tonight it’s Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We haven’t had my favorite trio of food in a while, so it was time! For the Chicken I used Katie’s Best Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs. We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of 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 and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook for another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry them with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

With the skillet heated, add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

I had opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them already cooking. I love these Green Beans. They always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink.

Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Cooked Apples

Today’s Menu: Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Cooked Apples

 

Started the day off with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degree and mostly sunny out. I had just gone to Meijer but I didn’t know that we were out of Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns so it was back to Meijer. While there I picked up a couple of Hanging Flower Baskets. Back home another day of staying outside and doing things around the house. I had bought a Hanging Basket of Strawberry Plants and I already have a couple of Ripe Strawberries and several green ones. This thing really took off after I brought it home. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Cooked Apples.

 

For the Chops I used the Adaptable Chopped Seasoned Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop. I had not used these in a while and I picked up a package of 2 while at Meijer earlier. These are perhaps some of the best Chops I have found, Delicious.

 

I fired the grill up to cook my Chops. With the grill heated I added my Chops. I grilled them for 8 minutes per side, until the Chops reached 145°F on a meat thermometer. Removed them from heat, and let them rest for 3 minutes. And serve! So Good!

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I heated some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

For another side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and its been a while since I’ve had any. For those that have never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

 

Finally I also heated up some Bob Evan’s Glazed Apples, it comes in a microwavable container and is a quick and delicious way to have Glazed Apples. Apples are perfect for any Pork dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

AdapTable Chophouse Seasoned Boneless Pork Ribeye
Chophouse Blend Pork Ribeye Chops
Seasoned With: Garlic, Onion and Bell Pepper
Directions:
1 – Briefly heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium-high.
2 – Cook chops in a covered skillet for 8-9 minutes per side until product reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer.
3 – Remove from heat, rest for 3 minutes. Enjoy!

Keep refrigerated. Keep hot food hot. Refrigerate leftovers immediately or discard.

Baked Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Ham w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Eggs

Today’s Menu: Baked Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Ham w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Eggs

 

First, Happy Easter to all of you! Well Mom has the Flu that’s going around. So I took good care of her today. Early this morning I went to the local Kroger and bought a couple of Flu and Cough Medicines. She seemed to feel a little better since last night. I’ll get her back to full speed soon! Anyway for Easter Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Ham w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Eggs. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

Last week While at Meijer I bought another of the Kentucky Legend Hickory Smoked Ham. It was a small 2 3/4 lb. Ham, and it looked delicious as always! I’ve baked a few of these now and really enjoy them.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the Kentucky Legend ham from the packaging and place it in a baking dish that’s at least 2 inches deep. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Crimp the edges of the foil tightly over the pan edges to prevent steam from escaping. Place the baking dish into the oven and heat the Ham until a meat thermometer shows an internal temperature of at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The amount of time this takes depends on the size and shape of the ham. Mine took 80 minutes. When the Ham is heated through, remove the baking pan from the oven. Leave the foil on the pan for 15 minutes to rest the meat before removing it and carving.

 

And what a Ham! Moist and flavorful and so moist. We love these small Hams of Kentucky Legend Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Quarter Ham.

 

 

For one side I prepared a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. So I opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans in Sea Salt. Just emptied the can into a small saucepan and heated to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer, heat until heated through. Love those Green Beans!

 

For another side I heated some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

I also prepared some Deviled Eggs. I prepared them like Mom does and they turned out delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with a Scrambled Egg. I also heated up a couple Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. To go with my Muffin and Sausage I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 19 degrees this morning and we had a high of 38 degrees and partly cloudy out. I’m still dealing with a sinus headache, just not quite as bad though. Did a few things around the house and later watched some of the College Basketball games. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

When Mom wants Ribs, Mom gets Ribs!. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday.

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. To go with my Muffin I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 50 degrees, windy and sunny outside. Not a bad day! They say dry weather and highs in the 50’s and 60’s for the next week or so, hope they are right. After my Tea I went to Walmart to see what they had in Grass Seed and a few other things. Back home It’s finally drying out and I’m able to get some yard work and repairs done. It’s been a rough Winter on the Yard and Deck. I would like to have everything I need when I can really start getting things done outside. But Winter is done yet! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday.

Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. High of 62 degrees, cloudy and very windy out today. It was one of those long and sleepless nights for me last night. The Phantom Pains started up about 2:00 this morning and continued till about 5:00 this evening! No fun! I had to have Mom at the Hospital for her first Radiation Treatment. It’s a very low dosage and they made a mask for her to wear for the Treatment. The Mask had a hole in it where they wanted the radiation to go. She was in and out in about 20 minutes. 19 Treatments to go! She did really good with it. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts w/ Fried Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

For the Chicken; I started at Noon today I grabbed a large Hefty Bag and added a 1/2 Pint of Buttermilk to the bag. I then added several shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and shook the bag to blend it together. I then add my Chicken Breasts and let it Marinate in the fridge until it was time to use. I used Katie’s Best Chicken.

 

To prepare the Thin Sliced Chicken Breast I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed with a coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then I started heating the skillet on medium heat. Next I added a tablespoon and a half of Olive Oil Cooking Oil. As the skillet heated I got the Chicken out of the fridge and removed it from the bag of Marinade, shaking off the excess. Then I grabbed a pie pan and added Flour to it and seasoned the Flour with Paprika. Took the Chicken Breast and rolled them in the Seasoned Flour until well covered.

 

Added the Chicken Breasts to the heated Skillet. I cooked the Chicken for 4 minutes and then flipped them over and cooked them for 4 more minutes, until golden brown and the meat thermometer read 165 degrees. The Chicken turned out so very good! Cooked up perfect, nice crust, and love the seasoning! Served it with Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce for dipping.

 

 

 

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

For another side I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Slow Cooker Whole Chicken w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Dinner Roll

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up some Cook’s Ham Steak, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, an Over Easy Egg, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 26 degrees this morning and had a high of 29 degrees, but the wind kept it in the teens. After Lunch I took Mom’s car up to the car wash and vacuumed it out. Then stopped and filled it with gas at our local UDF Store. Went around and put up garbage cans for 5 of my neighbors after the trash ran. Just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Slow Cooker Whole Chicken w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Dinner Roll.

 

We had a Katie’s Best Whole Chicken Roaster in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. It weighed about 3 3/4 lb. I decided to cook it in the Crockpot. I used a small Crockpot. I lined it with a Crockpot Liner and sprayed it with Pam and 2 tablespoons of Cooking Olive Oil. Added a 1/4 cup of water and heated it on high heat. As the Pot was heating I then seasoned it with a mixture of Salt, Pepper, Smoked Paprika, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder and Cumin. I mixed up all the Spices in a small bowl. Then seasoned all sides of the Roaster and on the inside. Then added it to the Crockpot.

 

Cooked for 4 hours and done! It turned out as good if not better than any Rotisserie Chicken you could buy! Tender and so moist with great flavor from the Spices. Katie’s Chicken does it again!

 

 

 

 

 

Then for sides I heat up the leftover Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans from a night ago. Also had an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Roll. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Prime Rib Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Another cloudy and gloomy day out. But a lot cooler. We had a high of 32 degrees but the wind chill made it feel like the low twenties! Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Then cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. That was it for me today! It’s Leftovers tonight. For Dinner tonight I reheated the Prime Rib and made Sandwiches with it. Also heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes.

 

I wrapped the Prime Rib in foil and reheated it at 250 degrees. After heating it I let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing. I served it on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Buns. The Prime Rib came out Delicious! Tender and flavorful.

 

For a 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 Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. I’ve left the post description of the Prime Rib from yesterday below. Take Care and Stay Safe all!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at GFS (Gordon Food Service). It’s a 6 1/4 lb. Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a baking pan for 3 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. Removed it from the oven when done and let it rest for 15 minutes.

 

The Prime Rib turned out perfect! So very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from GFS again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.
