Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a favorite of mine French Toast. I made using Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beaters, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Nutmeg, and Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. I saved calories and carbs by using the Light Butter, Egg Beaters, and the Log Cabin Sugar Free Syrup. The Syrup is only 25 calories and 8 carbs per serving and tastes as good regular Maple Syrup.I also had a 8 oz. glass of 2% Milk and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

 

We had a high of 62 degrees and cloudy out, the winds made it feel a bit cooler though. Did some yard work. Got my cart, rake, and leaf blower out of the shed. Then raked the front yard and took the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Later I gave my neighbor a hand raking his yard. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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 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 160°, 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 the Pork!

 

We love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple of Slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 54 degrees outside today. After Lunch I went to the Cincinnati Airport and picked up a friend of mine that was flying into town for a week or so. Good catching up with him, I’ve been friends with him and his family since 9th grade. Back home did a few things around the house outside and inside. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Mixed Chili Beans, and Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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 the pan; cook for 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 160°, 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!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 2 small packages of Diced Butternut Squash at Meijer. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these several times now and really like them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! I also baked a loaf of Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start this morning. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Tea I took Mom out to Ross, Ohio to pick up fresh Corn, Green Beans, and Tomatoes. On the way home she wanted to stop by Jungle Jim’s Market also. Back home I took my car up and had it washed and then I vacuumed the inside out. Back home just did a few small chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

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

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start this hot and muggy morning. After Tea I took Mom to Jungle Jim’s. We bought some Green Beans, Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Pork Chops and a few other things. Really surprised they had a ton of 1/2 Runner Green Beans. Back home I got the cart out of the shed and repaired a couple of places of the skirting around the deck. We had a Ground Hog problem, but no more my neighbor set a trap out and we got him! He was huge one and had been tearing stuff around a few of the houses. We took him to a local park and released him. The Green Beans we purchased earlier were big and full 1/2 Runner Green Beans. So Mom decided to go back to Jungle Jim’s and buy more of the Green Beans. We wanted enough to can 7 quarts. I dropped off at the front door and she and another woman bought what was left of the Green Beans. Just this morning they had 2 bins full of Green Beans. I guess when word leaked out how nice they were for $2.49 a lb. a lot of people came and bought them. Glad we were able to get more to can, we can tomorrow! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s earlier. 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.

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! Plus we have 7 more quarts of Beans coming tomorrow!

For another side I boiled an Ear of Sweet Corn, thanks again to Jungle Jim’s! It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Skillet Diced Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse 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 it with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and humid outside. After Breakfast I went to Meijer, we needed a new garden hose. Back home and inside for most of the day, way too humid for me. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches.

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge.

From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 160°, 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!

For one side I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. An 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.

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

I also had some Sliced Peaches to top everything off. They were Meijer Frozen Sliced Peaches, always delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. To make it I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, lightly fried 4 slices of Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna, Scrambled a medium size Egg, and added a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Nothing like a delicious Breakfast Sandwich to start the morning! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well like most of you still in house isolation. Outside its mostly sunny and 61 degrees. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

On my last visit to Meijer a few weeks ago I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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 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 20 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!

We love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Chocolate Ice Cream.

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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. To make it I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, lightly fried 4 slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, Scrambled a medium size Egg, and added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar. Nothing like a delicious Breakfast Sandwich to start the morning! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we had rain showers in the morning turning to snow showers later in the afternoon. Winter is back! Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

On my last visit to Meijer last week I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed 1 of the Chops from the freezer last night and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Then to prepare my Chop 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 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 pork to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 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 love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread yesterday and I’m having a slice of that topped with Butter. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside cloudy, windy and 38 degrees. Very windy and made it feel like 30 degrees! I spent this last day of 2019 cleaning closets. Cleaned my bedroom and the pantry. I just want to wish you each and everyone a Happy and Healthy 2020! So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.
