Today’s Menu: Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I have to be at the Dermatologist at 8:30 for my yearly check up. The Doc said everything looked good! Afterward Mom wanted to stop by Meijer, which is right down the road from my Dermatologist. Then we went to McDonald’s to pick up her Breakfast for her. Another nice day out, 81 degrees and partly sunny. In the upcoming days our highs will be in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s, Fall is coming! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes.

 

 

We just had Ribs last week but Mom loves Ribs, so I have to keep Mom happy! I bought a package of the Curly’s Baby Back Ribs from Meijer earlier today. The thing I like about these Ribs is they are a lot easier and quicker to prepare. And they are good tasting Ribs!

 

 

To prepare them, it couldn’t be easier; The package instructions – Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove ribs from package and place on baking sheet; cover with foil. Bake 20-25 minutes. For extra Sauce we used Jack Daniel’s Honey BBQ Sauce.

 

 

The Ribs came out incredible! Tender, flavorful, and bursting with that BBQ flavor! Curly’s Baby Back Ribs is a very delicious and time saving way to have some good Ribs! I had bought 2 packages of them, I have the other one in the freezer, to be used soon! Good job on the Ribs there Curly!

 

For a side I tried another Reser’s Main Street Bistro side dish, Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I came across these Meijer. And we are hooked on them!. We had the Sliced Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Scalloped Potatoes. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other’s were. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another delicious Potato Dish! Seasoned just right and you can hints of taste from the Butter and Sour Cream. I’m a proud member of the Main Street Bistro Nation! For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

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 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.

 

 

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. 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 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 Pork!

 

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! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

 

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Ross, Ohio ihas the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Beans Health Benefits………….
You should learn to love green beans with all of your heart – their powerful combination of fiber, folate, and the minerals magnesium and potassium make green beans a super food for cardiovascular health. Green beans are a healthy addition to almost any eating plan because they are a low-calorie, low-fat source of energy.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Shredded Potato Casserole

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for my Breakfast. 93 degrees, humid and mostly sunny out. After Breakfast we had to go pick Mom’s car up at the mechanic’s. She had the starter replaced in her car and it was faulty. So it was replaced for free. Afterward I took Mom’s car up and had it washed, filled it with gas, and stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the cart out of the shed and did a few things around the yard. I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs today! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Baked Shredded Potato Casserole.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs, her favorite, so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday and had them in the freezer. Then Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it 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 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender and when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. These Ribs were huge, some of the biggest I’ve prepared. The Ribs are so 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. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot. Again just flat out delicious Fall off the Bone Ribs! And the JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Seasoning is so good on these Pork Ribs!

 

For a side dish we tried something new I came across at Meijer yesterday, RESER’S MAIN STREET BISTRO – BAKED SHREDDED POTATO CASSEROLE. I had seen this before at Meijer and decided to give it a try, and glad I did. It comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven. As usual I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

 

Very easy to prepare. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Potatoes and loaded with flavor! Fantastic Potato item to have in the fridge. I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread for Gumbo. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels along with a Diet Dr. Pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I headed out to Walmart after Breakfast. A salute to Walmart and the safety precautions that they are taking to keep customers safe. Great Job Walmart! Stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. I wasn’t too active today my Sinuses got the best of me today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer earlier in the week. 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.

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

 

I wanted Green Beans but Mom wanted Butternut Squash, so you know what I prepared! So 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.

I also prepared a small can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, one of Mom’s favorites. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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

 

 

To start this day off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 95 degrees and sunny out today, and the humidity was terrible! Not a good day to be outside working so, I cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the sweeper. For Dinner tonight I prepared Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I love Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest BBQ food 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 a Healthy Life Wheat Bun.

 

I also baked up some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

To start this morning off I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. , 89 degrees, humid outside, and passing showers out today. Cincinnati Bell came today and replaced and buried our new lines for the phone and cable TV. Heavy rain came in just after Noon so that stopped my yard work for the day. Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes.

I finally found a Pork Tenderloin at Kroger! They’ve been hard to come by the last couple of months, no local grocery stores have had any. So I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger the other day, just over 1 1/2 lbs. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 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 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of 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 the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

For another side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert 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 had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well as usual we had a nice day yesterday followed by rain the next couple of days. Rain and only a high of 47 degrees out today. And of course the shift of weather my sinuses go crazy! Near 70 degrees yesterday and now a high of 47 degrees. It’s no wonder I have sinuses with this crazy Ohio weather! I did a couple of loads of laundry and cleaned around the house. Well in our area Meat is getting harder to find. Aldais, Jungle Jim’s, and Meijer are real low in Chicken, Pork, and Beef cuts. Plus Kroger is going to start limiting amounts of all Meat you can purchase per visit. Thankfully we are pretty well stocked. I’ve been putting away packages of all from time to time, good thing! 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 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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite 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.
