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

 

 


I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Mostly Sunny and 95 degrees outside today. Still suffering through these allergies! And from what the local news said, everyone is fighting them. I did go out for a bit and got the leaf blower out of the shed. I cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then trimmed up the vines along the driveway. After that time to get back inside! Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops and had them in the freezer. I grabbed 1 of the Chops from the freezer 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° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 


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. As everything was cooking I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero 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: Breakfast for Dinner – Thin Cut Pork Chops, Hash Browns, Scrambled Eggs, and Toast

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multigrain English Muffin and topped the halves with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I had to go to the local Kroger up the road for a couple of items and then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Afterward she went to Church. Had a an afternoon shower with a high of 91 degrees out today. Did a couple loads of laundry. Then got the cart out and did some yard work; weeds, cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, and trimmed the vines along the driveway. For Dinner tonight Breakfast! I prepared Thin Cut Pork Chops, Hash Browns, Scrambled Eggs and Toast.

 

While at Meijer earlier this week I picked up a beautiful package of Thin Cut Pork Loin Chops. Along with the Chops I’ll be using; 2 Eggs (Scrambled), Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns, and 2 slices Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Chops; I seasoned with McCormick’s Smokehouse Maple Seasoning. First time trying this Seasoning. Some of the ingredients are Brown Sugar, Molasses, Garlic, Onions, and Paprika. Perfect for Pork, Chicken, or Salmon. Next i grabbed a skillet and gave a spray of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated on medium heat. When the skillet was ready added the Chops. I just cooked them about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Being thin cut, it didn’t take them long to cook. It was a good size package so we froze the ones left. The Chops turned out delicious! Moist and the McCormick Smokehouse Maple Seasoning was perfect for the Pork.

 

Then for a side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and served them sprinkled with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar.

 

 

 

 

 

As both the Chops and Hash Browns were finishing I then made the Scrambled Eggs. As soon as the Hash Browns were done I removed them from the skillet and used this skillet for my Eggs. I used 2 Medium Size Eggs; also Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. To prepare them In a small bowl, whisked the Eggs and add just a splash of water. Added the Eggs, to the all ready heated skillet and cooked. Flipped the Eggs a couple of times and turned the heat off and finished the Eggs. When done I sprinkled the Scramble with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese. Finally I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Wow, nothing like a good Breakfast for Dinner! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns

Simply Potatoes Garlic and Herb Hash Browns have just the right amount of delicate seasoning and they fry up perfectly to a crisp, golden brown because they’re made from fresh potatoes. They’re always fresh, never frozen so you don’t have to worry about freezer burn. No need to peel, shred and season, we’ve done it all just for you.

* Fresh, never frozen, potatoes.
* Prepared for you to save time and energy.
* Seasoned with garlic and herbs

 

 

MCCORMICK GRILL MATES SMOKEHOUSE MAPLE SEASONING
Flavor You Can See! Shake on this smoky sweet blend of coarsely ground spices to liven up the flavor of chicken, pork, and salmon.
USAGE TIPS

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a Thin Cut Breakfast Pork Chop. I also prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love those Chops. After Breakfast I went to Kroger to pick up a few items for a Church Service later today at our Church. I then stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Mom’s Cataract Surgery went good, she has the the left eye done in a week. I dropped off the food at the Church and then did a couple of errands. It cooled down a bit and rain moved in, a high of 82 degrees and still humid. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

I had picked a Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chop at Kroger earlier. So 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. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

For one side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a few times now and really love 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! Being fairly new they are sort of hard to find. The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not feeling up to par today. I’ve been having continuing problems with Phantom Pains. It’s real unusual to have them on consecutive days, now 3 days in a row. I’ve really been uncomfortable the last few days. Hope it passes. Didn’t do a lot today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.
 

 

 

I had picked a Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chop at Meijer and had it in the freezer. I laid the Chop in the fridge overnight to thaw. They have some of the finest Pork Products you can buy at Meijer.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Harvest Apples and Roasted Asparagus

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Dealing with Phantom Pains again overnight and into the morning. This has been happening way too often lately! Sure wish the Medical World would find a cure or something to ease the pain. 50 degrees out this morning but rain showers. Had a high of 70 degrees! But not a lot going on for me except catching up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Harvest Apples and Roasted Asparagus.

 

 

 


I had picked a Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chop at Meijer and had it in the freezer. I laid the Chop in the fridge overnight to thaw. They have some of the finest Pork Chops you can find at Meijer.

Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

For a side dish. I prepared a package of Stouffer’s Harvest Apples, haven’t had this in a while. Easy to prepare; It comes in a microwavable tray. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, let cool and serve! Apples and Pork Chops are always go great together. This is a good one to have in the freezer!

 

 

 

 

I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus 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 tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast on this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped it with a Poached Egg and I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. About 12 degrees out this morning, not quite as cold as it’s been. Mostly cloudy and 24 degrees. Warmer temps on the way starting tomorrow, none too soon for me! Well the house is clean, the pantry is straight, oven clean, so not a thing to do today! Did a few things on the computer and then caught up on shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Purple Asparagus and Diced New Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this Monday morning I prepared a Potato and Ham Skillet. I prepared a bag of the Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes. Midway through the cooking time I added a 1/2 bag of Kroger Brand Diced Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit cooler out there this morning, 26 degrees and cloudy. But as the day went on we finally got some sunshine and 44 degrees for a high. After Lunch I made a few Christmas Candy drop offs to some friends. That was about it for my day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Purple Asparagus and Diced New Potatoes.

 

 

I picked a Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chops at Meijer yesterday. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. They have some of the finest Pork Chops you can find.

 

 

 

 

 

So to prepare my Chop I’ll need my favorite Pork Rub; 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 always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist!

 

I picked up more of the Purple Asparagus at Mejier, of course. It tastes like Green Asparagus but it’s less fibrous and sweeter due to a higher sugar content. I prepared it the same way as the Roasted Asparagus I’ve made before. I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the bacon, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and olive oil and toss to coat. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and that slight sweet taste to it. Really like the Purple Asparagus over the Green Asparagus!

 

For another side it was Del Monte Diced New Potatoes. I’ve had these many times and as always, delicious! To prepare these; empty the Potatoes into a small sauce pan and heat on medium heat until heated through. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

To start this Saturday morning off I had Steak and Egg. I fried up a SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Fillet Mignon. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. I it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also, as usual, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 


Cold morning out there this morning, 28 degrees. For the day mostly cloudy and a high of 54 degrees. I did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later on I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway ares of leaves. Back inside I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuum. Then settled in to watch some College Basketball and Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

 

For one side I heated up a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a few 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 a second side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also baked a loaf of LaBrea Multi-Grain 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 Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

I had a light Breakfast this morning. Toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English and lightly Buttered it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit nippy out there this morning, 38 degrees. We had a high of 57 degrees and it was sunny. I just love the Fall Season, my favorite time of the year! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by the bank and dropped off some letters at the Post Office before heading back home. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 

I picked the Chop up at Meijer earlier today. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. They have some of the finest Pork Chops you can find.

 

 

 

 

 

So 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 always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Muti Grain Bread

 

 

 

To start my morning off I had Steak and Egg. I fried up a SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. I it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also, as usual, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Since I’ve been drinking Green Tea, 11 years ago, I’ve never had a bad check-up on my Sugar. Some say it helps and others say not enough evidence. All I know is my Diabetes 2 is under control!

 

Sunny and 66 degrees for our high today, beautiful Fall Day! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer, I need some some Jennie – O Turkey Products and Meijer is the only store that sells a wide variety of the Jennie – O products. Not much else going on today. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.
