Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Cheesy HashBrown Potatoe’s and Seasoned Pinto Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. One delicious Breakfast! Outside passing thunderstorms and only a high of 60 degrees! We are getting part of Hurricane Harvey today and tomorrow. Well we had hoped Dad might be coming home but that’s been put on hold as he has pneumonia! They caught it early though and they’ll go ahead and treat it at the rehab center. So he’ll be there longer than what we hoped. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye w/ Cheesy HashBrown Potatoe’s and Seasoned Pinto Beans.

 

While at Meijer yesterday I seen they had some beautiful looking Walleye Fillets they had just got in and just couldn’t pass them up. I rinsed it off in cold water, sliced into smaller pieces, and put them in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge until ready to use today. To prepare them I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

For one side I prepared some Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes. I love all the Idahoan products and this one no different. As the others its baked in a casserole dish. To make the dish I’ll need 1 box of the Idahoan Premium Steakhouse Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes, 2 Tbsp Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 3/4 cups boiling water, and 1/2 cup 2% Milk.

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven on 450°F . Then in a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, combine potatoes, contents of sauce pouch, 2 Tbsp butter, and 1 3/4 cups boiling water. Add the 1/2 cup milk and stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 450°F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle crunchy onion topping on top of potatoes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve. Well seasoned and Cheesy.

 

 

 

For another side an item I haven’t had in a while, Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a couple of cans of this at a nearby Walmart, they carry a good selection of a lot of the Margaret Holmes Products. To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. And I have delicious side dish! I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are delicious, love the Seasoning. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole and Vegetarian Baked Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off! One delicious Breakfast!

 

 

 

Not long after Breakfast I started to prepare our Dinner tonight – Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole and Vegetarian Baked Beans. I prepared the Ribs early so we could take a big plate of everything to Dad over at the rehab center. 92 degrees and humid outside today. Did some yard work after Breakfast before it got too hot out there. All caught up with work and cleaning so I took a mid day nap. I haven’t slept good the past few nights, real restless for some reason. So for Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole and Vegetarian Baked Beans.

 

Mom and Dad’s favorite meal is my Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs and they both have been wanting some Ribs. So Ribs it is for dinner tonight. picked up a package at Meijer yesterday, they always have top quality Pork. And these were some Pork Back Ribs, 4 1/2 lbs. worth! Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned them with JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered the Ribs 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 1/2 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating!

 

 

 

After 7 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their 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. I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

For 1 side I prepared Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole. I’ve made these a few times now and like the other Idahoan dishes there a breeze to prepare and a delicious Potato Dish. And like he others this turned out fantastic! Very well seasoned, and you can taste that Applewood bacon flavor. Full description and recipe directions are at the end of the post.

 

 

 

For another side I prepared some Bush’s Reduced Sodium Vegetarian Baked Beans. I had these sometime back and fell in love with the flavor and taste of the Vegetarian Beans! Only 130 calories, 0 fat, and 24 net carbs per serving. To prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Beans! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Ribeye Steak w/ Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Glier’s Turkey Goetta. I also prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, toasted 1 slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! After Breakfast I went with Mom to the Hospital to see how a family friend was doing. She had exploratory surgery to see if they could find what was giving her stomach pains. She’s one of Mom’s best friend and someone I’ve known for as long as I can remember. Hope that they find what’s wrong she’s a fine lady! A lot of heavy rain and thunderstorms on and off all day, also very muggy out. For Dinner tonight it’s a Buffalo Ribeye Steak w/ Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Used the Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. Ribeye Steak, and what a beautiful cut of meat these Ribeyes are! It’s about 1 1/2″ thick with just enough of marbling to make it perfect. To prepare it I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then rubbed the Ribeye with a light coat of Extra Light Olive Oil and then seasoned it with a sprinkle of Garlic Powder, a shake of Ground Roasted Cumin, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

To start I pan fried it, using a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat about 3 minutes per side. Then I put the Skillet in the oven and roasted it until it had internal temperature of 145 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect, love using Cast Iron Skillets; from the stove to the oven! After removing it from the oven I put the Ribeye on a plate and lest it rest for 5 minutes before serving. These Steaks are so moist and tender and have that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. The juices off the Steak was just incredible! Way to big for one meal, I’ll have the leftover for breakfast or lunch tomorrow. Love that Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

For one side I prepared some Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes. I love all the Idahoan products and this one no different. As the others its baked in a casserole dish. To make the dish I’ll need 1 box of the Idahoan Premium Steakhouse Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes, 2 Tbsp Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 3/4 cups boiling water, and 1/2 cup 2% Milk.

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven on 450°F . Then in a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, combine potatoes, contents of sauce pouch, 2 Tbsp butter, and 1 3/4 cups boiling water. Add the 1/2 cup milk and stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 450°F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle crunchy onion topping on top of potatoes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve. Well seasoned and Cheesy. Goes great with Buffalo Ribeye.

 

 

 

For a second side I had some Fresh Cut Green Beans. Mom had purchased some 1/2 Runner Green Beans from Jungle Jim’s the other day. There was a couple of servings left so I reheated those. I can never have enough Green Beans! I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi-Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Vanilla Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo Ribeye Steak 10 OZ.

Steak lovers are serious about their ribeyes. Our juicy, meaty ribeyes will not disappoint. These steaks are incredibly tender due to the area of the bison from which they are cut: the rib primal section. Our 100% grass-fed ribeye steaks will redefine what you think a great steak is. 10 oz.

For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered), heated up 3 slices of Boar’s petite-buffalo-top-sirloin-steak-cheesey-hash-brown-casserole-013Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and made my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Delicious and light Breakfast sandwich! Cold day here today, had a low this morning around 11 degrees and a high of only 20. We ended up with about 2″ or more of snow, so not bad at all. So not a lot going on outside today. I didn’t have a lot to do today so I shredded some bills and statements for Mom, and she had a ton of them! Good thing I had nothing else to do because this took a while. So for my Dinner tonight it’s my favorite Steak, the Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak. Tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Cheesy Hash Browns and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 
I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz.

The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo I’ve ever had. As always when cooking Buffalo, keep an eye on it will get done quickly. They cook faster than marbled meat and when overcooked will be tough and dry. Buffalo is best cooked medium-rare or rare. The Steak came out a beautiful medium rare, and juicy and tender! I also Sauteed some Baby Portobello Mushrooms to top the Steak.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Cheesy Hash Browns and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

 
For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin (lightly buttered) and my morning cup of Bigelowpetite-buffalo-top-sirloin-steak-cheesey-hash-brown-casserole-013 Decaf Green Tea. I had to be at my Dermatologist at 8:30 for my 6 month checkup and everything looked great. And my Scans for any Cancer came back and I’m still Cancer Free! 12 years Cancer Free! I stopped my Meijer while out and picked up a couple of items. Another beautiful Spring like Fall Day out there again today, sunny and 74 degrees! But falling temperatures through the night and only a high in the 40’s with a chance of snow flurries later in the day. Just love this Ohio weather! Anyway got the cart out again and rode around the neighborhood. Stopped by a few of the older neighbors, checking on them and seeing if they needed anything. I wanted to get out and enjoy this warm weather, not many of these left this year. So for Dinner tonight it’s my favorite Steak, the Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak. Tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Cheesy Hash Browns and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w Baked Steak Fries and Skil 005
I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1/2 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo I’ve ever had. As always when cooking Buffalo, keep an eye on it will get done quickly. They cook faster than marbled meat and when overcooked will be tough and dry. Buffalo is best cooked medium-rare or rare. I also Sauteed some Baby Portobello Mushrooms to top the Steak.

For one side I prepared something new I came across while at Walmart, Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes. I love all the Idahoan products and this one no different. As the others its baked in a casserole dish. Just follow the box instructions and it comes out perfect! Excellent Hash Brown Dish! Well seasoned and Cheesy. Goes great with Buffalo Sirloin. I left the description and cooking instructions at the end of the post.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Green Beans

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Gr 006
Started my Sunday morning off with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Belive It’s Not Butter. Also so had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After I had Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked Mom and Dad’s Breakfast up for them, they love McD’s Breakfasts. Mom went on to Church and I stayed home with Dad. We can’t leave him home by himself for very long anymore. So I did some heavy-duty house cleaning. Everything done I got the cart out for an afternoon ride. Nice day out, mostly sunny and 72 degrees. Later on it was NFL Football for the day! For Dinner tonight it’s Moms favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs. I prepared Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Green Beans.

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs Seasoning
I was planning to have a Bison Chopped Steak but Mom came in from going to the local Kroger and had a slab of Pork Back Ribs. So the menu changed from Chopped Steak to Ribs! Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and then seasoned them with JB Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub. Put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag and then covered the Ribs 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. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low, for about 8 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, intoxicating! After 8 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For all of 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.

 

Idahoan Au Graten Potatoes 002
For side dishes I prepared some Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post. Then I heated up a can Del Monte Cut Green Beans and baked some Pillsbury Reduced Calorie Crescent Rolls. For dessert a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

Today we got dumped on though. It poured on and off all day. We do need the rain though. Still very humid out again. I did manage to go to Kroger in between showers and pick up a few items for tomorrows Dinner. Not much else going on today but sitting back and watching the storms pass by!
