Adobo Chicken and Kale Enchiladas
Put out your favorite toppings for these quick and healthy layered enchiladas. We like cilantro, sour cream, guacamole and jalapeños……..

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
We gave classic barbecue chicken pizza a healthy twist with hidden shredded zucchini in the sauce. It’s a great way to sneak extra veggies into both you and your children’s diet!…….

Soy-Lime Baked Buffalo Wings
Make this baked Buffalo chicken wing recipe at home to save 138 calories and a whopping 598 milligrams of sodium compared to the same number of deep-fried wings. If your market sells its chicken wings whole, you’ll want to separate each into a wingette and a drumette so they cook evenly. They’re easy to split apart with a sharp knife. Serve with carrot sticks, celery and ranch (or blue cheese) dressing………..

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

To start my morning off I made my favorite Breakfast. I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. I’m ready to start my day! Our beautiful streak of weather continues. A bit warmer out today, 75 degrees and sunny! I got my cart out and continued with some yard work this afternoon. I borrowed the neighbors power sprayer and power washed the deck and driveway. Then swept out the shed and straightened it up. Later on just rode around the neighborhood on my cart. I purchased a couple of packages of 1/2 Rack of Pork Loin Back Ribs from Meijer Wednesday and having them for Dinner tonight. Mom and Dad love Ribs, as do I! Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite).

 

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 you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating!

 

 

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 thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

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 Lite Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Baby back ribs served with fries and cornbread….

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

Grilling Ribs………….

 

When cooking Ribs apply the barbecue sauce — especially a sweet sauce — during the final minutes of cooking. (Otherwise, the sugar will burn before the meat is cooked.) Move the sauced ribs directly over the fire. Watch carefully, and don’t let the sugars burn. Also remember – every time you open a grill, you lose heat and smoke—two of the most important elements for making a great meal. Get that grill fired up!
