Today’s Menu: Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes


Well this is the coolest Memorial day weekend that I can remember in quite sometime. It was in the low 40’s this morning with high of in the low 60’s but with a real cool breeze, but mostly sunny! Started the Holiday off with a delicious dinner, a Seasoned Rubbed Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes.



I purchased another of the Pork Loin Boneless Roast with a JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub already on it from Kroger yesterday. The last Boneless Pork Roast 003one was incredible!! To prepare it I laid the Roast out for about 20 minutes to get it to room temperature. I then opened the Roast up and applied about 3/4 cup of JB’s fat Boy BBQ Sauce to it, rubbed it in real good, and rolled it back up. I placed the roast in a shallow pan and roast in a 350 degrees F. oven for 1 hour (about 20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Removed it from oven; let rest about 10 minutes before slicing to served. It will serve about 6-7, with leftovers! The Roast came out moist and delicious, the JB’s Fat Boy Rub along with the Sauce gave it a fantastic flavor. The juice and drippings from the Roast were incredible! I also had a side of the JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Sauce on the side for dipping but used very little because I kept readding the juices and drippings to the Roast and it needed no other flavor or seasoning.



I made a couple of sides to go with the Pork Roast, Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes and Cut Green Beans. I prepared the new one from Idahoan; Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes. I really love using these Idahoan Products, they’re all delicious and so easy to prepare and this new one is no different. Great seasoning and taste and love the added Bacon and Ranch to it. Another great option from Idahoan. the Green Beans were Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Artisan Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For dessert my favorite treat, Jif Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter! I had Peanut Butter on Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.





Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Pulled Buffalo Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans


With my Mom spending almost most of her time at the rehab center I spent the day catching up on all the housework and laundry Pulled Buffalo 002today. Outside another cloudy and rainy day! For dinner a Pulled Buffalo Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.



The Pulled Buffalo was from Wild Idea Buffalo, of course. It was from my last order that I had ordered from them. First time I tried it and it was incredible! So delicious in fact that I as soon I update my Blog here I’m going to order 2 more 1 lb. packages. Originally I was going to make BBQ Sandwiches out of it but as I was heating it up I sampled it and I knew right away this didn’t need anything else added to it, it was perfect! It comes in 1 lb. packages already braised and seasoned. According to the package ingredients list it was braised and seasoned with Organic Apple Cider, Organic Lime Juice, Organic Onion Powder, Organic Cumin, Sea Salt, Organic Black Pepper, Organic Chili Powder, Organic Oregano, and Organic Cayenne Pepper. It all comes together to make one delicious meal! As I said earlier I was going to add BBQ Sauce but none is needed here, maybe some other time as it would make a fantastic BBQ. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun.



To go with the Sandwich I made sides of Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans. The Mashed Potatoes were Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes and were leftover from last night’s meal. The Green Beans were Del Monte Cut Green Beans in a single serve can, just heat and serve. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Fudge Ice Cream Bar.




Wild Idea Pulled Buffalo MeatPulled Buffalo 001





Pulled Buffalo Meat – Our pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast is rubbed with our own blend of Mexican seasonings and then slowly braised to fall apart tender. We’ve done the work for you, so all you need to do is heat and eat! Use in all of your favorite Mexican dishes, like tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas. Or use for B.B.Q. sandwiches!

Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

Well my Dad was moved this afternoon from the hospital to a rehab center, at least 2 weeks or more till he regains his strength. The weather, it’s a sunny but cool day again. Where is our warm Spring weather? I found time this afternoon to work on the gas grill. Cleaned the burner and gas line, and got it going again! I think it’s about worn out, hopefully I’ll get another Summer out of it. For dinner tonight; a Grilled BBQ Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread. My first grilled Chop of the Spring!


I used a Costco Center Cut Pork Loin Chop. I love Costco’s Meats. If you’ve never tried them you should. After warming up the grill I Grilled Pork Chop 008_cropseasoned my Chop with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. It was a fairly thick cut Chop so I had to keep it on the grill a little longer than normal. When the Chop was done I immediately brushed both sides with my favorite BBQ Sauce, JB ‘s Fatboy Haugwaush Sauce. I just love all the JB ‘s Fatboy BBQ Sauces and Rubs but the Haugwaush Sauce is my favorite! It’s a flavorful thick Sauce with a perfect blend of spices and ingredients. Another must try if you haven’t. The Chop was juicy and full of flavor! Love that Grill!


For sides I warmed up some Idahoan Homestyle Mashed Potatoes. I used the single serve microwavable one. I also warmed a single serve can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread topped with a bit of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Healthy Life Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.


JB ‘s Fatboy Haugwaush Sauce

Today’s Menu: Baked Country Style Pork Loin Boneless Ribs w/ White Sweet Corn, Baked Potato, and Whole Grain Bread

One last warm day before it’s predicted to turn a lot cooler! Started the day off by going to Costco and loaded up on some great meat and fish Items. We’ll be having Top Sirloin Steak, Pork Chops, Country – Style Boneless Pork Loin Ribs, and Tilapia for a while, found some really great buys today. Also found out they’ll be getting their Prime Rib in for the Holiday’s on Nov. 21. on to dinner.



I prepared Baked Country Style Pork Loin Boneless Ribs w/ White Sweet Corn, Baked Potato, along with Whole Grain Bread. I believe it’s the first time I prepared the Country – Style Ribs.Their really a nice lean cut of Pork. I preheated the oven on 325 degrees. I started off by making a rub for them consisting of 1/2 teaspoon of Roasted Ground Cumin, 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Parsley Flakes, and a healthy couple of shakes of Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Made sure the Rub covered all sides of the Ribs and then basted them with JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush BBQ Sauce. I baked them for 1 hr and 30 minutes. I basted them every 30 minutes with the Haugwaush. The Ribs came out fantastic! Moist and tender and full of flavor. I’ll be having these again soon.



For my side dishes I had Green Giant White Sweet Corn, a Baked Potato, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The White Sweet Corn was leftover from last night’s meal so I just warmed that up in the microwave. For my Baked Potato I topped that with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later I’m sticking with just some fruit, a Mini Banana and some Honey Crisp Apple slices.

What Are Country Style Ribs?

*Country-style ribs – Country-style ribs are cut from the blade end of the loin close to the pork shoulder. They are meatier than other rib cuts. They contain no rib bones.

Today’s Menu: Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Cheese Sticks and Potato Grillers



Everyone was busy most of the day with various errands, and snacked along the way. So come dinner nobody was really too hungry so I prepared a light dinner tonight, Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork Sandwich, Mozzarella Stix, and Ore Ida Griller Seasoned Potatoes. I used Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork w/ Barbecue Sauce. Those of you not familiar with Montgomery Inn it’s one of the original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest food, love them Ribs, anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger’s. So when I’m in the mood for the 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 Whole Grain Bun.

Along with the Pulled Pork Sandwich I prepared Alexia Mozzarella Stix Italian Herbs & Olive Oil and Ore Ida Seasoned Griller Potatoes. It had been quite a while since I had Cheese Sticks and came across the Alexia Mozzarella Stix and they looked good plus they were only 120 calories and 10 carbs per serving (2 sticks). The Ore Ida Grillers are some of Ore Ida’s best potatoes! They are a nice thick cut of potato and bake or grill up perfectly. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Topping.
Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork with Barbecue Sauce/Hardwood Smoked

We slow – smoke our choice cuts of pork for hours over hardwood coals; blend the lean, juicy meat with our world – famous Montgomery Inn Barbecue Sauce to give it that special flavor. Enjoy!
