Today’s Menu: Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast and a 1/2 of a Cake Donut. We have suffered through some Hot and Very Humid weeks of weather here. Today it was perfect! A high of 78 degrees, Sunny and no Humidity! It was perfect! I’ve felt real good today, best day in a while. I went with a friend of mine out today. First we hit the produce Markets out in Ross, Ohio. Then she wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s Market. It felt so good to be out! For Dinner tonight I had Pork Cubed Steak w/ Baked Potato and Cut Green Beans.

 

I picked up the Pork Cubed Steak from Walmart. To prepare them I just seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them both in some Flour. I prepared them in a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. As the skillet heated I added a tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the Cubed Steak and cooked them 2 minutes a side. As I said they were small and not very thick so they were done quickly. Pork Cubed Steak is so much better than Beef Cubed Steak! Cooks easier and it’s not as stringy as Beef can be, and it has less calories.

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Russet Potato. Seasoned and topped with Salt, Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. For Dessert later 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.

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

 

To start this day I prepared some French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. I was starving this morning! 88 degrees, humid and partly cloudy out today. Still real sore from the fall. After Breakfast I headed to Kroger for a few items. On the way back I stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. I love the Wendy’s Breakfast Sandwiches but just to many carbs and calories to start the day. Back home I took my car up and it washed and then vacuumed the inside. Back home I took an elderly neighbor’s car and had the oil changed for her. I don’t know why she keeps her car, she’s unable to drive anymore. I guess it would be hard to give up after 60 or more years of driving. 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 Breyer’s 90 Calorie Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Cup.

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 Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 89 degrees, sunny, and humid outside. Still no word on my Scan results, waiting is the toughest part sometimes. I got my yard work and watering done early. I went around and took in a lot of my neighbor’s garbage cans for them after the garbage ran. I took Mom’s car and filled it with gas and then I had it washed. Later I picked a bag full of different Peppers and took them over to my Cousin’s. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer the other day. 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 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. 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 a snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a bottle of Diet Lemonade/Tea Snapple to drink.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees, not as humid, and windy. About 10:00 this morning I went to Ross, Ohio with a friend to pick up some some fresh Produce. I got some Sweet Corn, 3 lbs. Half Runner Green Beans, Tomatoes for Mom and a neighbor, and South Carolina Peaches. I could eat a bushel of these Peaches! Back home, no need to water the garden the rain took care of that this morning. I cleaned the house this afternoon, ran the vacuum and dusted. Then I gave the house a good For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Canned Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I bought a 2 Chop Package from my Meijer the other day. 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 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 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! It’s so good having fresh Beans in the Winter!

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of the Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. I had ordered a couple of ears from Meijer yesterday on my delivery order. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another beautiful day outside. 78 degrees and sunny out today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Then I got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work. Later I rode around the neighborhood enjoying the day. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Mixed Chili Beans, and Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Mom loves this trio for Dinner!

 

I had the Chops in the freezer and laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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 pork to the pan; cook for 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!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, an 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 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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.
