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: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I heated up a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty and served it on a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 82 degrees, humid with rain and thunderstorms from time to time. We had to have our cable worked on this morning. The picture kept freezing up and I would have to reset 3 boxes. Hopefully they fixed the problem! Got out between the storms and cleaned off the deck and driveway. For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Good job Meijer!

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! Microwave for 6 minutes total, and done! Just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans!  I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a Dole Peach Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cube Steak
Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

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

 

To start this morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a Thomas English Light Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees and humid out with thunderstorms and heavy winds coming in later. The part to repair Mom’s window in the car came in so I went and picked it up. Back home I watered the plants and cleaned up around outside. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

When Mom wants Ribs, Mom gets Ribs!. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer the other day.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy with rain showers, a high of 74 degrees. I had a bout with Phantom Pains last night and this morning until around 10:00. Not much sleep last night so that’s what I did most of the day, I’m just drained! For Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steaks w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the fridge. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef. Good job Meijer!

Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! We had Mashed Potatoes leftover from last night so I heated those up. Just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 13 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Cooked Apples

Today’s Menu: Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Cooked Apples

 

Started the day off with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degree and mostly sunny out. I had just gone to Meijer but I didn’t know that we were out of Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns so it was back to Meijer. While there I picked up a couple of Hanging Flower Baskets. Back home another day of staying outside and doing things around the house. I had bought a Hanging Basket of Strawberry Plants and I already have a couple of Ripe Strawberries and several green ones. This thing really took off after I brought it home. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and Cooked Apples.

 

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 earlier. 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!

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I heated some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

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 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!

 

 

Finally I also heated up some Bob Evan’s Glazed Apples, it comes in a microwavable container and is a quick and delicious way to have Glazed Apples. Apples are perfect for any Pork dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

AdapTable Chophouse Seasoned Boneless Pork Ribeye
Chophouse Blend Pork Ribeye Chops
Seasoned With: Garlic, Onion and Bell Pepper
Directions:
1 – Briefly heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium-high.
2 – Cook chops in a covered skillet for 8-9 minutes per side until product reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer.
3 – Remove from heat, rest for 3 minutes. Enjoy!

Keep refrigerated. Keep hot food hot. Refrigerate leftovers immediately or discard.

Baked Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Ham w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Eggs

Today’s Menu: Baked Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Ham w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Eggs

 

First, Happy Easter to all of you! Well Mom has the Flu that’s going around. So I took good care of her today. Early this morning I went to the local Kroger and bought a couple of Flu and Cough Medicines. She seemed to feel a little better since last night. I’ll get her back to full speed soon! Anyway for Easter Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Ham w/ Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Eggs. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

Last week While at Meijer I bought another of the Kentucky Legend Hickory Smoked Ham. It was a small 2 3/4 lb. Ham, and it looked delicious as always! I’ve baked a few of these now and really enjoy them.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove the Kentucky Legend ham from the packaging and place it in a baking dish that’s at least 2 inches deep. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Crimp the edges of the foil tightly over the pan edges to prevent steam from escaping. Place the baking dish into the oven and heat the Ham until a meat thermometer shows an internal temperature of at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The amount of time this takes depends on the size and shape of the ham. Mine took 80 minutes. When the Ham is heated through, remove the baking pan from the oven. Leave the foil on the pan for 15 minutes to rest the meat before removing it and carving.

 

And what a Ham! Moist and flavorful and so moist. We love these small Hams of Kentucky Legend Brown Sugar Hickory Smoked Quarter Ham.

 

 

For one side I prepared a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. So 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. Love those Green Beans!

 

For another side I heated some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

I also prepared some Deviled Eggs. I prepared them like Mom does and they turned out delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Dinner Rolls

 

For Breakfast I prepared a bag of Simply Potatoes Seasoned Diced Potatoes, we love these! I also fried a package of Private Selection Double Smoked Bacon along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A delicious start of the day! I covered all my Tomato and Pepper Plants in case it went to freezing, and it did. I haven’t planted them yet. They are still in the Plant Cups and I have them on a wooden cart. I’ll have to move the cart into the shed as temperatures are going below freezing for the next 2 mornings. In fact it’s going to be snowing overnight and Saturday Morning! Come on Springtime! Hopeful Tuesday I can plant them with the temperatures moving to the 60’s and 70’s. We had another of the Thanksgiving style Dinner tonight! I prepared a Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Dinner Rolls.

 

For the Turkey I used the Jennie – O Oven Ready Skinless Boneless Turkey Breast. Such an easy way to have a moist and fantastic tasting Turkey, along with little to clean-up! Comes in a Jennie O Turkey Breast Oven Ready Bag, that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 165 degrees. The Turkey comes out moist, juicy and delicious, with an excellent flavor! So cooking usually for just myself and Mom, it’s just the right size (2-3 lbs.). Enough leftovers for Dinner tomorrow. I also prepared a Blackberry Glaze, which works great on Turkey or Pork! To make the Blackberry Glaze I’ll need Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, Red Wine Vinegar, Splenda Sugar, and Ground Cinnamon. I left the recipe for this at the end of the post.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good, it’s been a while since I’ve had any. Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. I also heated up some of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. These are great for those of us with Diabetes 2, or for anyone who loves good rolls. The Rolls are only 35 calories and 1 carb per roll! That’s right 1 net Carb per roll! So a big thank you to Aunt Millie’s for these! 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.

Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees and mostly sunny outside today! What a beautiful day. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then headed outside for the afternoon. I washed down the shed and then the outdoor deck. I got the cart out of the shed and then gave it a good cleaning. Pitched a few things and gave away a few items. It feels so good to be outside and in 70 degree weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Chicken Strips sounded good for Dinner, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Bread. For Dessert later a Dole Sliced Peaches Cup.

To start this morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. To go with my Muffin I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 50 degrees, windy and sunny outside. Not a bad day! They say dry weather and highs in the 50’s and 60’s for the next week or so, hope they are right. After my Tea I went to Walmart to see what they had in Grass Seed and a few other things. Back home It’s finally drying out and I’m able to get some yard work and repairs done. It’s been a rough Winter on the Yard and Deck. I would like to have everything I need when I can really start getting things done outside. But Winter is done yet! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday.

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/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
