Today’s Menu: Braised Buffalo Chuck Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread

Another Perfect Summer Day out, about 70 or 72 degrees and sunny with a slight breeze! Drove my Dad to a Ford Retiree Union Meeting and spent some time at local park catching some of that beautiful sunshine! Well the Buffalo Burger was so delicious yesterday I’m preparing another Buffalo Dish for Dinner tonight. I prepared a Braised Buffalo Chuck Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread. Sounds pretty good and tasted even better!


Buffalo Chuck Roast 004My Braised Buffalo Chuck Roast weighed 1.4 lbs. It comes packaged and has already been braised. It was Braised in Organic Apple Cider, olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Black Pepper, and Sea Salt and the package includes some great juices also. To prepare it I used a 2.75 Quart Dutch Oven. I just sprayed the Dutch Oven with Pam Non Stick Spray and 1 Tbs. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Added the Chuck Roast put the lid on it and warmed it up on medium heat, turning the Roast over once, for about 15 minutes. As was the first one I had of these it’s the most tender, moist, and flavorful Chuck Roast I’ve ever had! The Braise with the Apple Juice and Spices provided the flavor throughout the Roast! The only thing I added to it was a bit more Sea Salt and Black Pepper. The Buffalo is so lean, rich and hearty. Plenty leftover to make some delicious Pulled Buffalo BBQ Sandwiches with for lunch or dinner tomorrow!
For sides it was leftovers. I reheated the Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas from the other night. I also heated up a jar of Heinz Savory Mushroom Brown Gravy and also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

Sort of a long day, I had some routine blood work done a couple of days ago while at a checkup with my new family doctor and I was Boneless Pork Roast 003told today that the blood work came back showing an elevated Liver count. Which is more than likely being caused by the Cholesterol Meds I’m taking. But when I hear of something off or not normal it always brings back some real bad memories. Staying positive, go back to the Doc on Wednesday. Then on top of that I got a letter stating that my Anthem Medicare Supplement insurance was going up $12.02 a month. Plus because I’m not 65 no other options are available so I’m at their mercy, pay it or don’t have any. I’ve had better days! on a more positive note, for dinner I prepared a Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

I purchased the Roast from Kroger yesterday, a Pork Loin Boneless Roast with a JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub already on it. To prepare it I laid the Roast out for about 20 minutes to get it to room temperature. 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 gave it a great 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, Mashed Potatoes, Brown Mushroom Gravy, and Cut Green Beans. The Mashed Potatoes were my favorite, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. The Gravy was Heinz Brown Mushroom Gravy and the Beans were Del Monte Less Sodium Cut Green Beans. A hearty and delicious dinner to end sort of a bad day. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Fudge Bar.
