Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Hash Brown and Diced Ham Skillet. I used Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns and then topped it all with the Sunny Side Egg. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Partly Cloudy and 65 drees out today. Gave the grill a good cleaning. Took it apart and cleaned the burners and cleaned the shell. Week 5 of our home isolation this week. For Dinner tonight Grilled BBQ Chicken Breasts w/ Sliced potatoes and Baked Beans.

I had picked up a package of Katie’s Best Skinless and Boneless Chicken Breasts at Meijer and had it in the freezer, laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. For the BBQ Sauce I’m using Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce. I’m seasoning it with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I went out and fired the grill up first. Next I sprayed the Chicken with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chicken Breast, then seasoned them with the Salt and Pepper and waited for the Grill to heat.

 

With the Grill ready I started. Added the Chicken and shut the lid on the grill. I let the chicken cook for 7 minutes, then used the tongs to flip the breasts over. Grilled for another 7 minutes longer. With about 1 minute of cooking time left I basted the Chicken with the Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce and finished cooking. Checked temperature of the Chicken with a thermometer reads it read just a tad over 165°. The Chicken came out fantastic! Moist and flavorful. First time using the Kraft Sauce and it was excellent!

 

As the Chicken was cooking I prepared the side dishes. For one side to go with the Chicken I prepared A can of Meijer Sliced Potatoes. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through and done!

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. And Dinner is served! The Chicken was spot on and the Potatoes and Beans work perfect with the BBQ Chicken. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take care and stay safe everyone!

Today’s Menu: Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

Mom and Dads T-Bone

Mom and Dads T-Bone

A Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and all the other Fathers out there! Another sunny day out again, bit warmer and more humid though. Went to Jungle Jim’s International Market this morning, they had T-Bones on sale and I wanted to prepare them for Mom and Dad for dinner. I’ve been wanting some BBQ so for my dinner I prepared Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ 001

For Mom and Dad I prepared grilled the T-Bone Steaks, Baked Potato, Three Bean Salad, and Baked up some Texas Toast. For my BBQ I used the Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork w/ Barbecue Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest food, love them Ribs, anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger. So when it’s Pulled Pork I almost always use the Montgomery Inn brand. Anyway you just heat it in a medium sauce pan until it’s warmed and you have BBQ. It’s the perfect combination of the Pork and the mouth watering Montgomery Inn Sauce that makes this so delicious! Plus it’s only 110 calories and 8 carbs per serving. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I also baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup and also had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Brats, Chips, and Deviled Eggs

 

 

Grilled Brats Deviled Eggs 001
Third day in a row of beautiful weather! Sunny and the 70’s again. Went to the store for Mom and back home for the day. Stopped by a neighbors for a while and got the cart out for the afternoon. For Breakfast I had Wheat Toast and Turkey Sausage, then for Lunch Tyson Smokey BBQ Chicken Wings, for Dinner I had no clue! One of those days where nothing sounded good. I settled on, Grilled Brats, Chips, and Deviled Eggs.

 

 

 

 

Mom and Dad wanted grilled Hot Dogs and Brats so I thought sounded good as anything. So I fired up the grill and put some Hot Dogs and Brats on. I used Ball Park Hot Dogs, Mom’s favorite, and Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. Delicious and they cook up great! Served them all on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Buns and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. Grilled a couple extra Brats for lunch tomorrow.

 

 

 
Then Mom had made some Baked Beans and Deviled Eggs. I passed on the Baked Beans, too many calories in the way she made them, but had the Deviled Eggs and Mom makes the best! Nothing had sounded good, but it all came together for a great dinner! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Pork Chops w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Potatoes

 

 

Grilled Chops, Red Potatoes 004

Wow what a gorgeous day to start off the early Memorial Day Weekend! Sunny, not a cloud in the sky, and a high of 70 degrees. A perfect day! Went to Kroger for a few items for myself and my Mom and back home. Did a little price comparison update between Kroger and Walmart, more on the results later. Took the cart out for a while and went down to the lake. For dinner tonight it was Grilled Pork Chops w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Potatoes.

 

 

 

Grilled Chops, Red Potatoes 001
Fired the grill up for part of the meal. I had bought a package of Kroger Center Cut Pork Chops while at Kroger earlier, beautiful looking Chops! I seasoned the Chops with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, after seasoning I sprayed a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chops. I always do this when grilling to help the Meat not to stick on the grill grate. I grilled the Chops till a thermometer read 150 degrees, grilled about 4 1/2 minutes per side. I flipped them one time and after flipping them I brushed on some JB’s Haug Waush BBQ Sauce on them. JB’s is my favorite BBQ Sauce, it’s a flavorful and a nice thick sauce with several different kinds. The Chops came out moist and full of flavor!

 

 

 

Roasted Red Potatoes
Then for sides it was 2 of my favorites, Fresh Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Red Potatoes. For the Red Potatoes, preheat oven to 400 degrees, I needed 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh or Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoon Dried Thyme, Rubbed Sage, and 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper. I start by heating up a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat and as that’s heating up quartered the Red Potatoes. Combined all ingredients in a large bowl and added the Potatoes. Toss to coat Potatoes and add them to the Skillet. Fry them about 4-5 minutes and transfer the Skillet to the preheated oven. That’s why I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven. I skillet and easy clean up! Bake them for 20 minutes or until their fork tender.

 

 

 
With your oven already at 400 degrees you can make the Roasted Asparagus also. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. Chops, Red Potatoes, and Asparagus, What is not to like! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
