Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and we had a high of 62 degrees! Not bad for December 2nd! I took advantage of this weather and I got the cart out of the shed. Rode around the neighborhood for a bit. Then I got the yard tools out. I then swept and cleaned off the deck and driveway and raked the front yard. For dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer Meat Counter. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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 I preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand for 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 for 5 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 the Pork!

 

I love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy.

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Today’s Menu: Boneless Pork Ribeye w/ Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rained out all day. We had a high of 45 degrees. I did a load of laundry after Breakfast and after that nothing! I was caught up on everything so it was relaxing all day. Caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s a Boneless Pork Ribeye w/ Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I had a package of 2 AdapTable Chophouse Seasoned Boneless Pork Ribeye, Seasoned with the Chophouse – Garlic, Onion and Bell Pepper in the freezer . I’m so happy that Meijer started carrying the AdapTable Products! Anyway I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

I’ll be preparing them on the stove in a Cast Iron Skillet. To prepare them I heated one tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium-high. Cooked the Chops in a covered skillet for 8-9 minutes per side until the product reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer. Remove them from heat, and let them rest for 3 minutes. And serve!

 

 

 

 

I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Salt Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

 

 

 

I also boiled a few Ears of Green Giant Mini Sweet Corn. To prepare them I boiled the Ears until done. Then when ready to eat I sliced the Kernels of Corn off and served it like that. I also had a couple Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. The day started off rainy but gradually stopped and we had of 75 degrees and partly cloudy out. After the rain stopped I went to Meijer, I needed a few items and one of my neighbors needed a few items. On the way back I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home I did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

To make this Delicious Mini Sub I’ll be using a Meijer Boneless Pork Tenderloin, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, and Perfection Mini Sub White Roll.
 

 

I had not had a Pork Tenderloin in a while so I purchased Pork Tenderloin from Meijer the other day, just over 1 1/2 lbs. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 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 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

 

This is the first time, and why I have no clue, that I sliced one for Sandwiches. Anyway I let the Pork rest for 5 minutes or so before slicing. I then sliced the Tenderloin into thin slices. After I finished slicing it I let it marinate in its own juices until ready to use. Wow, what a Pork Tenderloin! It was so tender and juicy with flavor that was incredible.

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries that I served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Breyer’s Vanilla Bean 90 Calorie Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Tenderloin….

Pork tenderloin is one of the leanest, most tender cuts of meat on the market, so it can also be a little spendy. Pork loin, on the other hand, can often be a bargain choice if you’re looking for a tender cut of meat that cooks well for a crowd. Pork tenderloin and other loin cuts are excellent sources of protein, thiamine, vitamin B6, phosphorus and niacin and good sources of potassium, riboflavin and zinc.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also made myself a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We have a hot and steamy one out there today! 96 degrees and humid, and the Cicadas are out in full force! Right after Breakfast I got what yard work needed done before the heat and humidity. My Tomato and Pepper Plants are just full, they love this weather. Later on I took my car and then Mom’s car through the Car Wash. That was about it, too hot and humid to do a lot outside. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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 I preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand for 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 for 5 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 the Pork!

 

I love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

To start this Thursday morning off I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich using al fresca Chicken Sausage Patty, Egg White Patty, 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, all served on a Thomas Light English Muffin. The Egg White Patty is something new I tried from Good Food Made Simple. If you come across these, give them a try! They are very good and only 35 calories and 2 carbs per patty! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 61 degrees with rain showers moving in later. Lot of rain here lately. After Breakfast I took Mom to a local Plant and Tree Nursery. She bought a couple of Hanging Baskets of Flowers. Back home did a few things around the house. So for Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

I had opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them already cooking. I love these Green Beans. They always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Baked Potato and Glazed Apples

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Another windy day but sunny and 62 degrees out. Did a load of laundry after Breakfast. Later made a Pick Up order from Kroger. They were out of a lot of items, picked the order up at 2:00. Did some yard work also. For Dinner tonight it’s a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Baked Potato and Glazed Apples.

 

While at Meijer I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops 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 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 pork to the pan; cook for 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

For a side I baked a Russet Potato for a side with Steak. Seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Daisy Light Sour Cream.

 

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. And Apples are perfect for any Pork dish!

Today’s Menu: Panko Crispy Turkey Tenderloins w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice way to start the day! 66 degrees and mostly sunny out, still windy. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a few things for Mom and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Did a little yard work and then later a friend of mine stopped by for a while to catch up a bit. For Dinner tonight I prepared Panko Crispy Turkey Tenderloins w/ Baked Fries.

 

I purchased another package of the JENNIE-O® Extra Lean Boneless Turkey Breast Tenderloins at Meijer. There’s only 120 calories, 1 gram of fat and 0 carbs per serving! I’m preparing them the same way as last time we had them. I had looked around at different recipes and I combined a couple of ideas from a few of them to prepare the Tenderloins. I’m making Panko Crispy Turkey Tenderloins. To make these I’ll be needing 1/3 of a cup Low Fat Buttermilk, 3/4 teaspoon (or more) of Frank’s Hot Sauce, 1/4 teaspoon of Garlic Powder, 1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder, Sea Salt, 1 package of JENNIE-O® Extra Lean Boneless Turkey Breast Tenderloins (sliced into smaller strips), Extra Light Olive Oil for frying, 1 cup All-Purpose Flour, 2 teaspoons Hungarian Paprika, Grinder Black Peppercorn, 2 cups Progresso Panko Breadcrumbs, 1 1/2 tablespoons Chile Powder, and 2 Large Eggs or Egg Beater’s which is what I used.

 

Then to prepare them; You’ll be needing 3 bowls. Whisk the Buttermilk, Hot Sauce, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Sea salt in a small bowl. Place the sliced Turkey in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the Buttermilk Marinade. I refrigerated them for 3 hours.

 

When ready I got a large cast-iron skillet and added3 tablespoons of the Olive Oil to it and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I put the Flour in a bowl and seasoned it with the Paprika and Sea Salt and Pepper. I then put the Panko in another bowl and season it with the Chile powder and Salt and Pepper. And finally I poured the Egg Beater’s in the last bowl.

 

I removed the Turkey from the Marinade, allowing the excess to drip off. I dredged the Turkey first in the Flour, then in the Egg Beater’s and finally coat them with the Panko. With the cast iron skillet heated I fried the turkey in batches, always being careful not to overcrowd the skillet, until golden brown and an instant read thermometer inserted into the center read 160 degrees. I fried them 3 minutes per side.

 

These came out so delicious! They came out Golden Brown, Tender and so Flavorful. The Spices worked perfect and the Panko Breadcrumbs gave it a fantastic crunch. I served these with some Blue Cheese Dressing for dipping. We have found a new Keeper Recipe! I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Then for Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
