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

 

 

 
Started my morning off by preparing some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 1 Egg Sunny Side Up, 2 Jimmy crispy-chicken-strips-w-scalloped-potato-casserole-and-cut-itali-003Dean Turkey Breakfast Sausage links, toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One great Breakfast! From a high of 65 degrees 2 days ago to a high of 25 degrees with snow flurries! And yesterday evening we got about 1/2 inch of snow. Back to 60 degrees Sunday and Monday. After Lunch I went over to see Dad at rehab. They moved him to a private room finally. Which will be a lot quieter and a lot more privacy. Stopped by the bank and filled up with gas before coming home. For Dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Perdue Crispy Chicken Strips

I used the PERDUE® Crispy Chicken Strips, the families favorite Chicken. 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!

 

 

 

Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole

For one side I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. Another easy to prepare and delicious Potato dish from Idahoan. A breeze to make just mix the ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes and you have some delicious Scalloped Potatoes. Plus their only 140 calories and 19 net carbs.

 

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 002
For another side I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans, our family’s favorite Bean Side. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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), 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. Petite Top Sirloin Steak 008teaspoon of Extra Light 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. The Steak came out a beautiful medium rare, and juicy and tender! I also Sauteed some Baby Portobello Mushrooms to top the Steak.

For Breakfast on this Sunday Morning I toasted a Healthy Life English Muffin and topped it with a Poached Egg. Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Gr 006Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to get the morning papers and it wasn’t quite as cold, mid 20’s, It reached the low 40’s today but rain showers moved in also. I’m feeling better to day than I have the last few days. Mom and Dad went to Church so it gave me a chance to give the house a good cleaning. Had everything done by lunch so I could settle in and watch some NFL Football the rest of the afternoon! For Dinner tonight Mom’s Favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

 

ribs 002
Mom’s favorite meal is my Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs and she’s been wanting some Ribs. So “what Mom wants Mom gets”. So Ribs it is for dinner tonight. She I picked up a package at Kroger 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 Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 002Pam 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, Rib 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 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.

Today’s Menu: 8 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

 

8 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 007
I had a bowl of Kroger Brand Bran Flakes for Breakfast. Also my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did some housework, and got that out of the way. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned of the wooden deck and around the driveway. Not a bad day out today, sunny and 85 degrees. Plus lower humidity! All the cleaning done I got the cart out for a while this afternoon. It’s nice to be outside without that high humidity! For dinner tonight it’s an 8 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak 014

I prepared one of the Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Top Sirloin Steak tonight. I had it in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. So easy to prepare these. I start by rubbing a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on it and then season it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I pan fried in a medium size skillet. I added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the pan and preheated the skillet on medium heat, added the Steak and fried it about 4 minutes per side. I topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms that I prepared. Love the combo of Steak and Mushrooms! Came out a perfect Medium Rare, nice char on the outside with a pink moist and juicy center. You just can’t beat the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks.The Steak was nice size so with the leftovers I’ll have Steak and Eggs in the morning for Breakfast

 

Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole
For one side I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. Another easy to prepare and delicious Potato dish from Idahoan. A breeze to make just mix the ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes and you have some delicious Scalloped Potatoes. Plus their only 140 calories and 19 net carbs.

 

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003
For another side I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans, our family’s favorite Bean Side. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

It’s May 14th and we had to turn the heat on this morning! High in the low 50’s, windy, and rTuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w Cut Italian Beans and Loaded B 009ain most of the day. Come on warm weather, we are ready! Toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Cleaned the house today, vacuum and dusting. Then after lunch headed over to see a friend of mine who had surgery a couple of days ago and now is home. He’s sore but feeling a lot better! Then I headed over to spend the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center. He’s getting a little stronger but a ways away from coming home. Back at home took a short nap and back up to make dinner. Tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Cut Italian Beans and Loaded Baked Potato Casserole.

 

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions

While at Costco yesterday I bought another package of Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions. They cut it and seasoned it as I shopped. As the first time I purchased some the package had 24 slices. I kept 4 slices out and froze the remaining 20 pieces.

I then lightly Salted the Pork with Sea Salt and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Parsley. Added the Pork to the skillet and cooked it for 2 minutes a side, just started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillets! I then backed them to a medium rare, 145 degrees in the center of the medallions using a meat thermometer. Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorites and these rank way up the chart! The Pork was so tender and flavorful. Seasoned just right and very moist. We’ll be keeping these in stock!
