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

 

 

To start this Morning off I made a Breakfast Sandwich using an al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty, 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and served on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. And that’s a great way to start the day! It rained all last night, just a light steady rain. For the day we had a high of 52 degrees and cloudy. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry. Then cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. About 2:30 we had a guy come over and measure Mom’s bathroom and he also measured the spare bedroom. Mom has tile in her bathroom and she wants carpet. She picked out the carpet last week. I’ll put new carpet in the bedroom after I get the bathroom paid off. 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. 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/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Peach Snapple 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.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 66 degrees and sunny outside today! Still windy but it’s 66 degrees! Got the cart out of the shed and cleaned it up and charged the batteries in it. Then got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Good to be outside and not be bundled up. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We love the Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips! I had not had these in a while and they sounded good!. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 350° F. Arranged the frozen chicken breast strips in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165° F as measured by use of a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the Chicken Strip . And Chicken is served! It’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and very easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing, love this Dressing!

 

For one 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. I also prepared a package of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes with.

 

For another side I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 34 degrees and partly sunny out today, the wind chill kept in around 22 degrees. After I ate I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and got gas for her car. About 1:00 a home repairman that lives here in the neighborhood started repairing our entrance into the Kitchen and laundry room area. My Hoveround Chair had it really nicked and dented. He replaced the trim and put up plexiglass so my Chair wouldn’t tear it up anymore. He did a great job! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

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

 

 

To start this Saturday Morning off I baked a small container of Pillsbury Flakey Biscuits and made a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 39 degrees, windy and cloudy outside today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and it was Kitchen Cleaning day. Wiped everything down with Lysol Disinfecting Wipes. Next I cleaned and straightened the stand up freezer. I also got the Ribs ready for the Crock Pot, it’s Crock Pot Ribs tonight! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy

Today’s Menu: Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees, sunny and windy out today. My neighbor has food from a local Food Bank delivered to his house. He has to leave for Florida today to be with his sister who is fighting Cancer. So he called me and asked if I would take some of the food that was delivered to him yesterday, and use what I want and give it to a family that needs it. So after Lunch I took some to another neighbor and took some over to my Cousin’s house. So the Food went to where it was needed! Back home did a few light chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Breaded Pork Tenderloin w/ Sugar Snap Peas, Mashed Potatoes, and Peppered White Gravy.

 

Just the words of “Breaded Pork Tenderloin” makes my mouth water! My order from Omaha Steaks was delivered earlier and 1 of the items I ordered was Breaded Pork Tenderloin. 1st time ordering it and it will not be the last! They come Frozen and 4 Breaded Pork Tenderloins per box.

 

 

To prepare it you can Microwave it or Bake it. I always prefer the baking option over microwave option. So to prepare it I preheat oven to 425°F. Then lined a sheet pan with foil and 1 T. of Extra Light Olive Oil per piece of pork on sheet tray. Placed 2 of the Pork pieces on sheet tray. Placed it on the center rack of oven. Cooked for 10 minutes, flipped it and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until the Pork was golden brown and reached 145°F. Drain on paper towel and ready serve.

 

 

As all Omaha Steak Products, these are so easy to prepare! And as all the Omaha Steak Products they were so delicious! Well seasoned and perfect Breading, not over Breaded but with enough to make a nice crust. They are big patties and are only 220 calories and 4 net carbs per serving! Another great item to have ready in the freezer from Omaha Steaks!

 

 

To go with Breaded Tenderloins I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

 

Then I also prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Breaded Pork Tenderloin with. What a Delicious Dinner! For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 36 degrees out today. Not a thing going on today. Did some small chores around the house, changed the furnace filters and such. Then caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner it’s Christmas Dinner Leftovers. I made a Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Deviled Egg. Stay safe everyone!

 

Plenty of leftovers from the Christmas Dinner Feast! And thank goodness for leftovers because I really didn’t feel like cooking. We almost always use Cook’s Ham when we bake a Ham. So with the Ham we baked yesterday, we made some into some delicious Ham Sandwiches. Just took a few slices and serving it on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is so delicious and moist. And as always with Cook’s Ham, perfect seasoning! We’ll have quite a few Breakfasts and Lunches out of this. To make the Sandwich I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Topped it with a bit of Kraft Light Mayo with Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and a slice of Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese. Love this Sandwich!

 

For a side I heated up the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and I had a leftover Deviled Eggs. Just love these leftovers! It’s sometimes better the second time around! For Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cook’s Hams

Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are now fully cooked! This means they may be eaten cold or heated. The ham only needs to be heated through if serving warm.
With fewer bones and less fat, Cook’s Semi-Boneless Hams are a great value. With two of the three bones removed, carving and serving are much easier. With only the center bone remaining, your family can still can enjoy the great taste and flavor that only a Cook’s bone-in ham can offer, plus the added value of more lean meat and the convenience of less bone.

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg, and served it on a toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 52 degrees out today, not too bad!  After Breakfast I went to Walmart for a couple of elderly neighbors. I go for them a couple of times a month. Both couples are in their late 80’s and 90’s. So I help them out when I can. I went early to avoid the crowds. It really started getting crowded as I was leaving. Back home just did a few things around the house. 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 freezer that I had purchased a while back. Sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes and Cube Steak with.

 

For a second side I cooked up some Canned Green Beans. We have about 16 or so Quarts left we had canned. Nothing better than fresh Green Beans on a Winter’s Day! I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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: Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Diced Potatoes and Ham Skillet 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 sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees and mostly sunny out today. Well the leaves are falling around here! So I got the cart, rake, and leak blower out and raked some leaves. Gave my neighbor a hand with his also. Took the cart for a spin afterward. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Chicken Breast Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

I love the Pilgrim’s Southern Style Breast Strips! I had not had these in a while and they sounded good!. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 350° F.

It’s some of the best frozen Chicken you can find! Excellent seasoned breading and very meaty, and very easy to prepare. Served it with a side of Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing, love this Dressing!

 

For one 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. I also made a package of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes with.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I headed out to Walmart after Breakfast. A salute to Walmart and the safety precautions that they are taking to keep customers safe. Great Job Walmart! Stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. I wasn’t too active today my Sinuses got the best of me today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer earlier in the week. 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 160°, 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!

 

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.

 

I wanted Green Beans but Mom wanted Butternut Squash, so you know what I prepared! So I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, 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.

I also prepared a small can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, one of Mom’s favorites. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

Butternut squash…………
Butternut squash, sometimes known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma, is a type of winter squash that grows on a vine. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has tan-yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds in the blossom end. Wikipedia

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

 

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for my Breakfast. 91 degrees and mostly sunny out. After Breakfast I took Mom’s car up and had it washed, filled it with gas, and stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the cart out of the shed to get some yard work done. As always I sprayed sunscreen on nice and thick, need it in this sun! I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs today! 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 a couple of weeks ago and had them in the freezer. I sat them in the fridge to thaw yesterday afternoon. 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!

 

I prepared a small kettle of some more of those fresh Green Beans that we picked up in Ross, Ohio last week or so. These Beans are so good! Each Pod is loaded with big Beans. I could have these every day and never tire of them.

 

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 bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
