Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes

 

To start this rainy morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Meijer Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then topped them off with Diced Ham. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 58 degrees, partly cloudy and light rain on and off all day. A whole lot of rain is coming up for tomorrow. Did a couple of loads of laundry after Lunch. Later I straightened up the pantry and our junk closet. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge that I had purchased yesterday. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef.

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Savory Beef Gravy that I added a can of Kroger Pieces and Stems Mushrooms, to top the Cubed Steak with.

 

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

So for another side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beaters (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). We love these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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 Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 34 degrees and partly sunny out today, the wind chill kept in around 22 degrees. After I ate I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and got gas for her car. About 1:00 a home repairman that lives here in the neighborhood started repairing our entrance into the Kitchen and laundry room area. My Hoveround Chair had it really nicked and dented. He replaced the trim and put up plexiglass so my Chair wouldn’t tear it up anymore. He did a great job! 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! I had not had these in a while and they sounded good!. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 350° F. Arranged the 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 very easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For one side I prepared a package of 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 made a package of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes with.

 

 

For a 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 a Dessert/Snack later a Mini Bag of Reduced Fat Cheez-Its with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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

 

 

To start this Saturday Morning off I baked a small container of Pillsbury Flakey Biscuits and made a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 39 degrees, windy and cloudy outside today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and it was Kitchen Cleaning day. Wiped everything down with Lysol Disinfecting Wipes. Next I cleaned and straightened the stand up freezer. I also got the Ribs ready for the Crock Pot, it’s Crock Pot Ribs tonight! 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 last week and had them in the freezer. I sat them in the fridge to thaw yesterday afternoon. 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 another 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper 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.

Today’s Menu: Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees, sunny and windy out today. My neighbor has food from a local Food Bank delivered to his house. He has to leave for Florida today to be with his sister who is fighting Cancer. So he called me and asked if I would take some of the food that was delivered to him yesterday, and use what I want and give it to a family that needs it. So after Lunch I took some to another neighbor and took some over to my Cousin’s house. So the Food went to where it was needed! Back home did a few light chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy.

 

Just the words of “Breaded Pork Tenderloin” makes my mouth water! My order from Omaha Steaks was delivered earlier and 1 of the items I ordered was Breaded Pork Tenderloin. 1st time ordering it and it will not be the last! They come Frozen and 4 Breaded Pork Tenderloins per box.

 

 

To prepare it you can Microwave it or Bake it. I always prefer the baking option over microwave option. So to prepare it I preheat oven to 425°F. Then lined a sheet pan with foil and 1 T. of Extra Light Olive Oil per piece of pork on sheet tray. Placed 2 of the Pork pieces on sheet tray. Placed it on the center rack of oven. Cooked for 10 minutes, flipped it and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until the Pork was golden brown and reached 145°F. Drain on paper towel and ready serve.

 

 

As all Omaha Steak Products, these are so easy to prepare! And as all the Omaha Steak Products they were so delicious! Well seasoned and perfect Breading, not over Breaded but with enough to make a nice crust. They are big patties and are only 220 calories and 4 net carbs per serving! Another great item to have ready in the freezer from Omaha Steaks!

 

 

To go with Breaded Tenderloins I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

 

Then I also prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Breaded Pork Tenderloin with. What a Delicious Dinner! For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg, and served it on a toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 52 degrees out today, not too bad!  After Breakfast I went to Walmart for a couple of elderly neighbors. I go for them a couple of times a month. Both couples are in their late 80’s and 90’s. So I help them out when I can. I went early to avoid the crowds. It really started getting crowded as I was leaving. Back home just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the freezer that I had purchased a while back. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Good job Meijer!

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have 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. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Cube Steak with.

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 16 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Cube Steak

Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Potato Cakes

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love that Goetta! Windy, cloudy, light rain and 45 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom, again. She found out she needed some more items for Thanksgiving. I got to Kroger around 7:00 and it was already getting crowded. Back home I did a load of laundry. I always take what clothes I go to the store or Doctor’s Appointment in and wash them right away.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spice Pork Chops w/ Loaded Baked Potato Casserole and Glazed Apples

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 64 degrees on this 1st day of October. Another day of dealing with Phantom Pains. They started around 5:00 this morning and didn’t stop until around 6:00 this evening. I would give anything for a way or cure to stop these! For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spice Pork Chops w/ Loaded Baked Potato Casserole and Glazed Apples.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s and them in the freeze. Laid 2 of the Chops in the fridge overnight to thaw. To to prepare my Chops 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 the 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 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

For a side dish I prepared a box of Idahoan Loaded Potato Homestyle Casserole. I love all the Idahoan Potato Products. A very quick and easy way to prepare some delicious piping hot Potato Dishes. A very quick and easy way to prepare some delicious piping hot Potato Dishes.

 

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. And Apples are perfect for any Pork dish! Quite a dinner tonight! 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Idahoan Loaded Baked Homestyle Casserole

There’s no better way to start a savory Loaded Baked® homestyle casserole than with world-famous Idaho® potatoes, which is why you’ll taste only 100% grown-in-Idaho potatoes in this rich, cheesy, bacony side. For family meals or for special occasions, this cheesy, delicious dish is sure to please.
Prep Instructions
Oven Preparation

Best for Golden Browning

1 -Preheat oven* to 450°F. Combine potatoes and sauce mix in 1½-quart baking dish.
2 – Stir in 1½ cups boiling water, ¾ cup milk, and 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine with whisk.
3 – Bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until top is golden brown and potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and let stand a few minutes before serving (sauce will thicken slightly when cooling).

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Diced Potatoes and Ham Skillet for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees and mostly sunny out today. Well the leaves are falling around here! So I got the cart, rake, and leak blower out and raked some leaves. Gave my neighbor a hand with his also. Took the cart for a spin afterward. 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! I had not had these in a while and they sounded good!. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 350° F. Arranged the 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 very easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing, love this Dressing!

 

For one side I prepared a package of 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 made a package of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes with.

 

 

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 later a Jello – Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips

Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips evoke memories of growing up in a sleepy southern town. The crickets chirping, the moss hanging from the trees, the air humid and everything moving slow in the heat. And your grandmother’s delicious home cooking brought the entire family around the table on the weekends.

Our Southern Style Breast Strips feature a juicy piece of chicken with a breading just right to deliver that southern flair. Our special blend of spices and seasonings with the whole muscle goodness of white breast meat will please kids and old-timers alike.

Ideal as:
* Appetizers
* Snacks
* Lunch or Dinner Entrées
* Crowd Pleasers

Cooking Instructions:
Oven: Preheat oven to 350° F. Arrange frozen chicken breast fritters in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes until no pink remains or an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the chicken breast fritter.

Fryer: Heat oil to 350° F. Fry frozen chicken breast fritters for 6 minutes or an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the chicken breast fritter.
