Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and mostly sunny outside. Feeling a bit better today. Each day it seems to heal a little better. Just over 4 weeks since I fell. I pulled up the last of the Tomato Plants. They produced all kinds of Tomatoes for us and the neighbors! Later I washed down the deck. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Dinner Rolls.

 

Chicken Strips always sound good for Dinner, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a 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.

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! I also had some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips
This fully cooked meal makes for a great ready-to-cook entrée that tastes as good as it is easy to make! Serve Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips with your favorite sauce or marinade to bring out their incredibly savory flavor.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another hot and humid day out there. We have a high of 88 degrees and the humidity almost as high. Rain showers by late afternoon. A heavy thunderstorm moved in late yesterday. Heavy rain and strong winds. As the storm passed us it got worse, a tornado and it caused a lot of damage to a County next to ours. So after my Tea I watered the Tomato and Pepper Plants. After Lunch I took a friend to a local Home Depot. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet that I had purchased from Meijer the other day. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheat the broiler. Pat the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Place skin side down on a broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Dish! I also heated up the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans from last night. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites for sure! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Canned Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees, not as humid, and windy. About 10:00 this morning I went to Ross, Ohio with a friend to pick up some some fresh Produce. I got some Sweet Corn, 3 lbs. Half Runner Green Beans, Tomatoes for Mom and a neighbor, and South Carolina Peaches. I could eat a bushel of these Peaches! Back home, no need to water the garden the rain took care of that this morning. I cleaned the house this afternoon, ran the vacuum and dusted. Then I gave the house a good For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Canned Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I bought a 2 Chop Package from my Meijer the other day. 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 150°, 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!

 

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them! It’s so good having fresh Beans in the Winter!

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of the Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. I had ordered a couple of ears from Meijer yesterday on my delivery order. 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.

 

 

 

 


Green Beans Health Benefits………….
You should learn to love green beans with all of your heart – their powerful combination of fiber, folate, and the minerals magnesium and potassium make green beans a super food for cardiovascular health. Green beans are a healthy addition to almost any eating plan because they are a low-calorie, low-fat source of energy.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 88 degrees, sunny, but not as humid. I had to be at the hospital at 7:45 this morning for my scans. They took them of my liver, lungs, and bladder. I showed a little blood in my urine when I went to the Urologist a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it’s nothing serious! Then I had to have Mom over to the treatment center to check and see if they cleared up all the skin cancer. He was really pleased with it! All of it’s gone but 1 small spot. We go to the Dermatologist in July and he’ll decide to whether to remove it by radiation or just to remove it surgically. Sort of a stressful day. For dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steaks left in the freezer so I grabbed them out of the freezer last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. What beautiful cuts of Buffalo these Steaks are, so lean and delicious. I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. To prepare it all I’ll need is McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Rosemary, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I started by preheating a Cast Iron Skillet on medium high. Then rubbed a very light coat of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil on both sides of the Steak then seasoned both sides with the Rosemary, Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Once the skillet is hot I added the Steak let it sear on the medium heat for about 2 minutes. Then turned it once and cooked for 2 more minutes. Then I put the skillet in the oven and finished the Steak in the oven. I had to keep it in the oven a bit longer than normal because it’s a thick Steak.

 

The Steak came out a beautiful Medium Rare! Served it with some Sauteed Mushrooms. These Steaks are every bit as delicious as they look! The taste is so fresh and has that slight sweet Grass Fed Buffalo taste to it. Moist and tender and so delicious! You just can’t beat these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, Bison or Beef. The Steak was plenty big so I saved some it for my Breakfast in the morning, Steak and Eggs!

 

 

 

For a side dish I baked a Russet Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also heated up a Quart of our Canned Green Beans. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a with Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 10 OZ. NEW YORK STRIP STEAK
A classic American favorite, lean and luscious. This steak is cut from the short loin and is extremely tender and flavorful. The New York Strip Steak will always take center stage on any grill. 10 oz.

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

 

For Breakfast I fried up some Bacon, Scrambled a couple of Eggs, baked a small tube of Pillsbury Buttery Biscuits, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny, Humid, with a heat index at 109 degrees. Rain moved in around 5:00 today. Not a good day out there. I got all the watering and cleaning done outside early this morning. I picked a half bag of Shishito Peppers and took them over to my cousin’s house, they love Peppers! Stopped and filled Mom’s car up with gas and back home out of the heat. Did a few things around the house. 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: Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 81 degrees, humid with rain showers out today. After Breakfast got my morning workout in, showered, and did a load of laundry. Later I watered the plants and garden. My Strawberries are coming in now, picked quite a few early this morning. The Tomatoes are getting big, but none ripe yet. The Peppers are the same way. Gave the kitchen a good cleaning. Then kicked back and caught up on some shows I recorded. For Dinner tonight I had Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I picked up the Pork Cubed Steak from Walmart. I prepared a couple of these for Breakfast a while back, they were delicious. So I ‘m preparing a couple more for Dinner.

 

To prepare them I just seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them both in some Flour. I prepared them in a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. As the skillet heated I added a tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the Cubed Steak and cooked them 2 minutes a side. As I said they were small and not very thick so they were done quickly. Pork Cubed Steak is so much better than Beef Cubed Steak! Cooks easier and, it’s not as stringy as Beef can be, and it has less calories.

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Russet Potato. Seasoned and topped with with Salt, Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

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.

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. 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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Buffalo Breakfast Sausage Patties, a slice of Aunt Millie’s 1 Calorie Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Tea. I used the Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage. It comes in a 1 lb. package and I form the Patties. These came out delicious, another great Buffalo Product from Wild Idea Buffalo! Outside it’s 43 degrees and cloudy out, the wind made it feel a lot colder at times. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s, her favorite! Then at 1:00 I had to take her for a hearing test. She needs new hearing aids. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Green Beans and Dinner Rolls.

 

I bought a Pork Tenderloin while at Kroger along with some Chicken Thighs. I’m having the Pork Tenderloin for Dinner tonight. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 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. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

For one side I prepared some Roasted Cauliflower. I love Cauliflower but it’s been tough to find up until the last week or so. I can find them now at Meijer or Kroger, this bag came from Meijer. To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish 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. I also had some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. You can’t beat these Rolls. 35 calories and 2 net carbs per roll! For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

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. 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.
