Today’s Menu: Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Green Beans

 

 

 


This morning for Breakfast I had a Poached egg, 2 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Links, toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit warmer out today and less windy, high of 57 degrees. Did a few things around the house then after Lunch went outside and got a few things out of storage from the shed. Pulled out some of the outdoor chairs and table and cleaned them up and also repaired a couple of the chairs. Back inside finished some laundry up for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mushroom Gravy, and Green Beans.

 

 

It’s very seldom that I have Beef but when I was at Walmart the other day this just looked good and I had not had this in quite some time, a package of Hormel Slow Simmered Beef Roast Au Jus. And made into a an Open Face Roast Beef sounded real good! It comes packaged in a sealed microwave container and easy to prepare. Start by removing it from the outer sleeve and place the tray in microwave, do not pierce or vent film. Heat on high for 4 minutes or until hot. the self-venting film expands as it heats, forming a bubble to lock in flavor and juiciness. Let it stand for 2 minutes. Peel back and serve. Can’t get much easier and it’s really delicious. Plenty of Beef with excellent flavor. All I added was a bit Sea Salt to it. I lightly toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and served the Beef on top of the Toast. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Mushroom Gravy that I topped it with.

 

 

 

For a side I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Topped them with some of the Mushroom Gravy.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I could have Beans every meal, love them! For Dessert later tonight I’ll be having a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

I seasoned the Steak with Sea Salt and Black Ground Pepper. Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich Shake and Bake 001Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika and rolled the Cube Pork in that and shook off the excess. Then I dipped it in the Egg Beater’s shaking off the excess and then pressed both sides in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides was well covered. I heated up a medium size skillet, that I drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, on medium high heat. Added my Cubed Pork and fried both sides about 4 minutes per side, till each side was golden brown. Topped it with some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. The Cubed Pork Steak came out delicious! Moist and very tender with a good flavor from the Paprika and all the other ingredients.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and French Bread

 

 
For Breakfast this morning i prepared a Poached Egg that I served on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English cumin-spiced-pork-chop-w-mashed-potatoes-golden-hominy-and-fre-008Muffin. Topped it off with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good light and healthy Breakfast! More rain overnight and into the morning before it stopped. The day it was cloudy and high around 49 degrees. It was laundry and house cleaning today, all day. With everyone recovered from the stomach virus we had, we washed all the bed sheets and quilts. Then I ran the vacuumed, dusted, and sprayed the house down good with Lysol. All looks great! So for Dinner tonight I prepared another one of those delicious Chops from Meijer! Tonight its a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and French Bread.

 

 

cumin-spiced-pork-chop-w-purple-passion-aspararagus-savory-herb-003

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a package of Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce.

 

 

 

 

 
So to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Harvest Apples 001Powder, 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 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 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.

 

Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast w Mashed Potatoes and Gold 014
For a 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 any. For those that has 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!

 

 

 

Mashed Potatoes
For another side 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 baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

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.

I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes crispy-chicken-strips-mashed-potatoesd-cut-italian-green-be-002Steakhouse 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 everything with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar and a fried Sunny Side Up Egg. Very good way to start this chilly Saturday morning. We broke a record high yesterday, 76 degrees, and overnight rain and cold front moves in. Some places actually seen snow flurries! Cold and windy today, even had a chill factor today. Oh this Ohio Weather! So today was a good day to get some laundry and house cleaning done followed by an afternoon of College Football!

Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious! Really enjoy these, had a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing to dip the Chicken.

It was Jennie -O Turkey Sausage Links, Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, and a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out, amazing how quickly leaves and twigs gather around our deck and driveway! So I cleaned off those areas.

Next preheated the oven to 450 degrees. Place the olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and sear on one side until nicely browned, about 4 minutes. Flip over, transfer to the oven and continue cooking until chicken is cooked through, about 9 minutes. And done! We have another one of those Winner, Winner Chicken Dinners! The Mustards and Honey combine to make one flavorful dish! Chicken came out very tender and moist. Easy to prepare and a 1 dish cleanup, makes a “Keeper Recipe”. And it’s Mom and Dad approved, both loved the Chicken! The original recipe is at the end of the post.

 

 

Mashed Potatoes
To go with the Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs I prepared Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. I used Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Then for another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Monday morning! Started the morning off by Scrambling 2 Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom. Then went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Later on ran a couple of errands and then headed up to the hospital to check on a friend of mine. Back home finished up a couple of things around the house. For Dinner tonight I reheated the leftovers from last night, Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 
Had plenty of Leftovers from last night’s Dinner of Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans. Everything was just too good to let it go to waste! Just love the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips. I used think Pilgrims had the best, and it’s still good Chicken, but Perdue has the best now. So an easy prepared Dinner tonight and just as good as the first time. Had a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar for Dessert later. I’ve left the original post from last night below for preparation and description, Enjoy!

 

 

Perdue Crispy Chicken Strips
I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips. To prepare it I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn the Strips halfway through heating time. They come out golden brown and delicious! Really enjoy these and so easy to prepare!

 

 

 

Mashed Potatoes
For one side dish I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Easy to fix and delicious. To prepare it just heat it up in the microwave for 6 minutes and it’s ready. Then for another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans.
