Today’s Menu: Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy

 

To start this day I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich using al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty and served on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. These Sausage are so good and only 80 calories for the patty. To go with the Sandwich I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, 82 degrees and humid out there today. Safelight came today and replaced Mom’s passenger side rear window. Great service! Swept and cleaned outside. I also planted Mom’s new flowers for her. For Dinner tonight it’s a Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy.

 

For the Chops I used the Adaptable Chopped Seasoned Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop. I had not used these in a while and I picked up a package of 2 while at Meijer. These are perhaps some of the best Chops I have found, Delicious.

 

I fired the grill up to cook my Chops. With the grill heated I added my Chops. I grilled them for 8 minutes per side, until the Chops reached 145°F on a meat thermometer. Removed them from heat, and let them rest for 3 minutes. And serve! So Good!

 

 

 

To go with the Chops I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For another side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and its been a while since I’ve had any. For those that have 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 it’s normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish! Served with Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/ Snack later a bowl of Skinny  Pop Popcorn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Then I went to Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Later I took Mom over to 1/2 Price Books, she needed a few to read. Mom loves reading! Then we stopped by Walmart, to the Garden Center. She bought a plat of Flowers. So I’ll be planting Flowers tomorrow. Cleaned off the Deck and Driveway areas. Then Watered the Flowers and Garden Boxes. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

To make this Delicious Mini Sub I’ll be using a Meijer Boneless Pork Tenderloin, Pennsylvania Dutchman Sliced Mushrooms, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, and Perfection Mini Sub White Roll.

 

 

I love Pork Tenderloin! I purchased Pork Tenderloin from Meijer the yesterday. 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 the oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 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 for 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!

 

I let the Pork rest for 5 minutes or so before slicing. I then sliced the Tenderloin into thin slices. After I finished slicing it I let it marinate in its own juices until ready to use. Wow, what a Pork Tenderloin! It was so tender and juicy with flavor that was incredible.

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries that I served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Tenderloin….
Pork tenderloin is one of the leanest, most tender cuts of meat on the market, so it can also be a little spendy. Pork loin, on the other hand, can often be a bargain choice if you’re looking for a tender cut of meat that cooks well for a crowd. Pork tenderloin and other loin cuts are excellent sources of protein, thiamine, vitamin B6, phosphorus and niacin and good sources of potassium, riboflavin and zinc.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. After my Tea I had to head back to Meijer to return a couple of items. On the way back home I stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home I helped Mom get her potted flowers planted. She had like 4 pots of them. I bought her those and 3 hanging baskets of flowers for Mother’s Day. Anything for Mom! For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

Ground Pork Burger and Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Ground Pork Burger and Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 72 degrees and sunny out today. I had to have Mom to her hearing aid doctor appointment at 12:00. She had to find a new hearing aid place. Her old one was no longer in business. These will be so much better for her. Back home watered all the plants and swept the deck off. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Pork Burger and Baked Fries.

 

I had bought a package of Ground Pork at Meijer. I opened the package up and made it into 4 Patties. I froze 3 of them and kept one out for my Dinner Tonight. I love Ground Pork, it has such good flavor and fries up perfectly!

 

After 3 minutes flip the burgers. Continued cooking for 4 minutes more. Flip one more time and cook for another 2 minutes or until cooked through. If you’re adding on Cheese go ahead and do so with about a minute before removing them from the pan. I’m using Boar’s Head Asiago Cheese. When cooking Pork Burgers, you want to make sure that they are cooked all the way through. Which means taking them to 160 degrees internally. I served the Burgers on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Buns. The Burgers were topped with a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Pepper Jack Cheese and Hellman’s Organic Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise. Then served on a Pepperidge Onion with Poppy Seeds Hamburger Bun. The Pepperidge Buns I’m using are a bit more calories or carbs than what I normally use but well worth it! These are so soft and fresh! The Burger came out mouth watering delicious! Excellent Pepper Jack Cheese also!

 

To go with the Burger I I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later I had a few slices of Cracker Barrel Super Sharp Cheese and some Ritz Whole Wheat Crackers. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ground Pork…….
Vitamins B6 and B12, are found abundantly in pork, are essential for blood cell formation and brain function. Pork is also an excellent source of iron — the heme-iron found in red meats is absorbed very easily by the human digestive system.

Pork. Lean pork is every bit as good for your body as lean beef and chicken. In one study, substituting lean pork for beef and chicken led to less body fat and better heart health. For a spicy take, try ancho-rubbed pork tenderloin.

Today’s Menu: Ground Pork Burger and Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I had Scrambled Eggs (2 Eggs), toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain on and off and 58 degrees. Above average chance of rain all week they say. It sure beats Snow and Ice! After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Then after Lunch I got the plant boxes out and started filling them with dirt and then a layer of peat moss with some fertilizer. My Pepper and Tomato Plants came in and I had to get them watered and planted. Mom loves Tomatoes so I’ve got more Tomato Plants this year. I also have some Bell Pepper plants, Jalapeno, Banana Pepper, and Ghost Pepper Plants. So I planted as many as I could today. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Ground Pork Burger and Baked Fries.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread and topped it some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 51 degrees, cloudy, with a cold wind blowing most of the day. Mom is doing real good. Her face is starting to heal and she’s so happy with it, as I am! Did some yard work in backyard along with a few other outdoor chores. 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 the other day. 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. I had to make up a new container of my rub. To prepare it I preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand for 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 for 5 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!

 

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. 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 a few slices of Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar Cheese and some Socialable Crackers. I had a Coke Zero to drink. Take Care All!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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: Pulled Pork Rib Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 43 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I took my neighbor to pick his car up at the shop. Back home I got the leaf blower and rake out of the shed. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then I raked the front yard. There’s so much dead grass right now. For Dinner tonight it’s a Pulled Pork Rib Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the leftover Pork Back Ribs from last night’s Dinner. I pulled the Meat off the bones and put it in a microwave plate. I reheated it for 80 seconds and it was done! Added some Fat Boys HaugWaush BBQ Sauce to it. I love the Fat Boy Rubs and Sauces! Next I got an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun and made my Sandwich. The Rib Meat was delicious! It had marinated all night in the fridge and was mouth-watering!

 

To go with my Sandwich I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. Served with some Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with a Scrambled Egg. I also heated up a couple Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. To go with my Muffin and Sausage I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 19 degrees this morning and we had a high of 38 degrees and partly cloudy out. I’m still dealing with a sinus headache, just not quite as bad though. Did a few things around the house and later watched some of the College Basketball games. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

When Mom wants Ribs, Mom gets Ribs!. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday. 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, 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. 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 another 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. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Buffalo Breakfast Sausage Patties, a slice of Aunt Millie’s 1 Calorie Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Tea. I used the Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage. It comes in a 1 lb. package and I form the Patties. These came out delicious, another great Buffalo Product from Wild Idea Buffalo! Outside it’s 43 degrees and cloudy out, the wind made it feel a lot colder at times. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s, her favorite! Then at 1:00 I had to take her for a hearing test. She needs new hearing aids. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Green Beans and Dinner Rolls.

 

I bought a Pork Tenderloin while at Kroger along with some Chicken Thighs. I’m having the Pork Tenderloin for Dinner tonight. 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 the oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 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 one side I prepared some Roasted Cauliflower. I love Cauliflower but it’s been tough to find up until the last week or so. I can find them now at Meijer or Kroger, this bag came from Meijer. To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish I opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans in Sea Salt. Just emptied the can into a small saucepan and heated to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer, heat until heated through. I also had some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. You can’t beat these Rolls. 35 calories and 2 net carbs per roll! For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
