Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Savory Potatoes and Golden Hominy

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this March morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese.Love these Breakfast Sandwiches! I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Lunch went to see Dad at the rehab center. For Dinner tonight a couple of new items. I prepared a Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Golden Hominy.

 

 

 

Second time we’ve had these, and love them! I wasn’t a fan of Brisket of any kind but this one has changed my mind on Brisket! It comes already seasoned; Dry Rubbed Chili Lime. It comes packaged in 2 pieces. I used our large Cast Iron Skillet to cook it in. To prepare it; Preheated a lightly oiled, used Extra Light Olive Oil, Cast Iron skillet over medium-high heat. Removed meat from package and coated the Brisket lightly with Pam Cooking Spray and placed in skillet. Sauté approximately 10 to 12 minutes before turning. Turn the brisket and cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Sauté until the internal temperature reached 145˚F in the thickest part of the meat.

 

 

 

 

Removed from skillet and let it rest for 3 minutes. Sliced and served! It came out delicious! It had a nice char on the outside and was tender and moist, cooked perfectly. Another good item to have handy from Swift Premium.

 

 

 

Another favorite I always pick up at Meijer are the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

For a 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 any. For those that has 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. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower and Green Beans

 
For Breakfast on this snowy March morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried slicesdry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-012 of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese. And I had my Breakfast Sandwich! I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside another snow squall moved through the area, just like yesterday morning and about the same time of morning. Some areas had 2″ or more, we had a little over a 1/2″. Guess Old Man Winter wanted everyone to know it’s still Winter! Back into the 60’s by Monday though. After Lunch went to see Dad at the rehab center. He wasn’t looking too good today. I’m starting to really worry about him, hope he can turn it around. For Dinner tonight a couple of new items. I prepared a Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 
First time we have tried the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket. We’ve tried a few of the dry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-005others so we thought we would try the Brisket. I’m not normally a fan of Brisket of any kind but this one has changed my mind on Brisket! It comes already seasoned; Dry Rubbed Chili Lime. It comes packaged in 2 pieces. I used our large Cast Iron Skillet to cook it in. To prepare it; Preheated a lightly oiled, used Extra Light Olive Oil, Cast Iron skillet over medium-high heat. Removed meat from package and coated the Brisket lightly with Pam Cooking Spray and placed in skillet. Sauté approximately 10 to 12 minutes before turning. Turn the brisket and cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Sauté until the internal temperature reached 145˚F in the thickest part of the meat.

Removed from skillet and let it rest for 3 minutes. Sliced and served! It came out delicious! It had a nice char on the outside and was tender and moist, cooked perfectly. Another good item to have handy from Swift Premium.

 

 
For one side dish I tried another new item, the Green Giant Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower. I found it dry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-008Meijer the other day. I read the reviews on it and it seemed everyone enjoyed the taste but a common complaint was it too watery and thin. So I added a teaspoon of flour too it during the final 10 minutes of baking time and it seemed to cure that problem. It comes frozen in microwavable or baking tray, I baked mine. To prepare it; Preheated the oven to 425 degrees. i cut 2 slits near the center of the plastic to vent. Placed it on a baking sheet and placed it in the oven and baked it for 30 minutes. Removed it from the oven after the 30 minutes and peeled back the plastic and stirred. I also added a teaspoon of flour to it to thicken it up a bit. Replaced the film back on top and baked an additional 12 minutes. Removed it from the oven and let it stand 1 minute. Stirred it and served! Excellent taste and the flour thickened up just enough. Nice change of pace side dish.

Then I also heated up a can of my favorite, Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat to a light boil and heat until warmed. I also heated up the leftover French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Whole Grain Bread

 

 

 

Ham, Diced Potato, Egg, Hash 002

 

 

For Breakfast I had one of my favorites, Skillet 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 Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. Just love these skillet Meals!

Another Spring like morning to start the day, about 52 degrees this morning. Had rain overnight and very foggy in places this morning. Had a high around 62 degrees, not bad at all for February in Ohio! After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway. Had a lot of leaves and debris built up through the last couple of months. Then after Lunch I headed out to go see Dad for a bit, he’s been making good progress. Might be released soon to come home. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Whole Grain Bread.

Tried another one of the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Whiskey Black Pepper Boneless Pork Loin Fillets. I love using these Swift Premium Pork Products. So easy to prepare and all come out lean and moist with fantastic flavor! I purchased this one from Meijer.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the Pork Loin from package and place in an uncovered roasting boneless-pork-loin-fillet-w-mashed-potatoes-cut-green-beans-an-002pan that is sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. I then took some JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush and rubbed some over top of the Roast, for added flavor. Cook approximately 35 minutes or until internal temperature on a meat thermometer reached 145°F in the thickest part of the Roast. Remove it from oven and let rest 3 minutes before slicing and serving. And as the other Swift Premium Products, one delicious Roast! The Roast was very moist and tender. The JB’s BBQ Sauce was just right for the added flavor.

 

 

Mashed Potatoes

 

I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better and easier to make!

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Risotto and Cut Green Beans 004

 

 

 

I heated up a can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. I could have Beans every meal, love them! Then I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam for Breakfast. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went Meijer for some items I needed. I’ve been noticing the price of Tea just keeps going up and up! I was at Walmart last week and it’s now $2.36 a box up from $2.18 a box about a year ago and at Meijer its up to $2.68 a box. Of course Kroger has the highest price at $3.12 a box! And it’s not just Tea that’s rising in cost its everything practically. Having to really watch for sales and coupons. Outside today we were near a record high out today, 81 degrees! Highs back in the 60’s by the weekend though. Raked what leaves I could with the help of my neighbor. Still a lot of leaves left in some of the bigger trees herein the neighborhood but the smaller ones are almost bare now. For Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

bbq-pork-shoulder-roast-sandwich-w-baked-fries-001
A while back I tried the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast , which turned out so good! I had purchased 2 of them a while back and still had one left in the freezer. So I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw for use for tonight’s Dinner, BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
For the BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwiches I’ll be using the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite bbq-pork-shoulder-roast-sandwich-w-baked-fries-005Pork Shoulder Roast again! And preparing it one of my favorite ways, the Slow Cooker. It’s a super easy recipe to make. Start by lining my Slow Cooker with a Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner. Using the liner makes for little or no clean up. Next, removing meat from package. Place the Roast in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Then across the top I added a thin coat of Jack Daniel’s Honey SmokeHouse BBQ Sauce. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or until fork tender. Then remove from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Next shred the meat with two forks, or a pair of Bear Claws which is what I used, in a large bowl and add the BBQ Sauce. You can add the BBQ Sauce now or you can add the Sauce on to your Sandwich instead. I used Jack Daniel’s Honey SmokeHouse BBQ Sauce, you can always use your favorite. I served the sandwich on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Sandwich Bun The Pork comes out incredible! As the other Swift Premium product it came out moist, juicy, and delicious! These products are so easy to prepare and top quality. Another great product to have handy in the frig or freezer.

 

Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries 003
To go with the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Another cool morning to start the day, about 42 degrees this morning. Beautiful day out, sunny and a high in the mid 60’s, love these beautiful Autumn Days! Did a few things in the house and did a load of laundry. Outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway. Had everything done by Lunch. Then after Lunch got the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. Noticed that there’s quite a few trees around the neighborhood that are already turning colors. Afterwords a day of NFL Football. For Dinner tonight it’s a Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Whole Baby Carrots and Whole White Potatoes.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 
For Breakfast I had a bowl of Kroger Brand Bran Flakes and the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After bbq-pork-shoulder-roast-sandwich-w-baked-fries-010Breakfast I did some light house cleaning and then cleaned around the house outside. Everything done I had to go to the bank and back home. At noon I met some friends at the local B – W 3’s for lunch. I met up with my good friend who had the brain surgery earlier this year. He’s still struggling to get the everyday functions going but he’s alive and still trying! Once a week his daughters take him out to eat and they called me up and wanted me to join them. Had a great time with all, so good seeing my buddy out! Back at home settled in for an afternoon of College Football. For dinner I wanted a hot meal that was easy to prepare so I went with BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

A couple of days ago I tried the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast , which was so good! Yesterday while at Kroger I picked up a couple more of these Roasts. I put one of them in the freezer and kept one out for tonight’s dinner, with plenty leftover for sandwiches for Lunch.
