Today’s Menu: Buffalo Steak Strip Street Tacos

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Hot and Humid out there today! It was 91 degrees, sunny, and humid. The Cicadas in a tree across the street are deafening, you can’t hear anything out there but the Cicadas. Not a thing to do today. I watered all the flowers and shrubs early and again after the sunset this evening. Besides that I just laid around. For Dinner tonight I prepared Buffalo Steak Strip Street Tacos.

 

For the Buffalo I used Wild Idea Premium Steak Strips. To prepare them; I first Rinsed the Wild Idea Bison Steak Strips and pat them dry. I then added a light amount of Extra Light Olive Oil to them, making sure the Strips were completely covered on all sides. Then I seasoned them with Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt. The Omnivore Salt is a blend of Natural Sea Salt and Organic Spices. Then I left the Strips rest. Next I got a Cast Iron Skillet and added 1 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, heated the Skillet on Medium High Heat.

 

Over Medium High heat, I cooked the Bison Strips for about 4 minutes, tossing to turn occasionally. I removed the Strips from the skillet into a bowl. These Steak Strips are so tender and delicious! I’ve prepared these a few times now and they just keep getting better! Easily prepared also.

 

Along with the Steak Strips I added La Preferdia Mild Jalapeno Slices, Olives (Black and Green), Shredded Lettuce, Ortega Chipotle Taco Sauce, Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix (Less Sodium) and all served in a Mission Street Tacos Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortillas. Add all this together and you have some mighty tasty Street Tacos. I love using the Mission Street Tacos Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortillas. Always so fresh and soft. Plus they are only 70 calories and 3 net carbs per serving – 2 Tortillas.

 

Next just build your Taco! An Easy and Delicious Meal to prepare. For Dessert later a Breyer’s Cookies and Cream 90 Calorie Ice Cream Cup.

Take care of your Cast Iron Skillets……………..

Use Salt to Clean Your Cast-Iron Pans. Cleaning a cast-iron pan with salt. It’s a fast and easy way to soak up the oils that could go rancid in the pan without using soap that will break down your seasoning and make your pan rusty. It will also help dry out any stuck-on bits for easier removal.

Removing rust from Cast Iron Skillet…………….

The simplest way to remove a lot of rust from cast iron is to make a slurry of Bar Keepers Friend and a couple of tablespoons of water in the pan and scrub the rust off using a stainless steel scrubber. We recommend wearing rubber gloves. Again, wash, dry, and re-season your pan afterward.

Preheat that Cast Iron Skillet…….

Preheat your cast iron skillet for the best cooking results. To ensure the quality of cooking and durability of the pan, always preheat. Despite its many benefits, these skillets heat slow. However, once it starts heating, it keeps heating. Heat it slowly, going from low to medium levels, letting the cast iron do its thing. And since the pan is excellent at emitting heat, you can cook the food over low-medium heat.

Dry Cast Iron Skillets on the stovetop………..

Don’t worry about drying a wet skillet with a towel, just place the skillet back on a burner on low heat. Allow it to sit until all moisture evaporates from the inside, the outside, and even on handles. Allow the skillet to cool before handling again.

There’s a lot you can do with that cast-iron skillet……………….

No pan gets a sear on your steak or adds flavor to fried chicken quite like a cast-iron skillet. Plus, as your skillet absorbs oil, the seasoning adds flavor to your pan, creates a natural non-sticking surface and also provides protection against rust. You can also make one delicious skillet pizza!

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese

 

To start this Sunday Morning off I made Biscuits and Gravy with Turkey Sausage. I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, Pillsbury Grands Jr. Biscuits, Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A Delicious Sunday Morning Breakfast! A high of 44 degrees and cloudy outside today. Did a load of laundry and then cleaned the house, dusted and ran the vacuum. For Dinner tonight Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet, that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. So I laid a package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

For the Mac and Cheese I used Reser’s Main Street Bistro Signature Macaroni and Cheese. We have used several of their sides now and having the Mac and Cheese tonight.

 

 

I’ll be baking it, you can also microwave it. I prefer baking items in the oven. First preheat the oven to 350°F. Next I removed the tray from the package and removed the film. I placed the container on baking tray and heated it in the oven for 22 minutes. Nice and bubbly around the edges. Let it cool a bit and it’s ready! The Mac and Cheese is delicious! Fantastic Elbow Macaroni with plenty of Cheese, seasoned just right! I also had a slice of the baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread I baked the day before. For a Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Use Salt to Clean Your Cast-Iron Pans……………..

It’s a fast and easy way to soak up the oils that could go rancid in the pan without using soap that will break down your seasoning and make your pan rusty. It will also help dry out any stuck-on bits for easier removal. Pour coarse kosher salt, or any salt you have available, into the still-warm skillet. Use a soft cloth or brush to scour the skillet. Dry immediately. Heat the skillet over a medium-low flame to evaporate the moisture.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start this morning. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Tea I took Mom out to Ross, Ohio to pick up fresh Corn, Green Beans, and Tomatoes. On the way home she wanted to stop by Jungle Jim’s Market also. Back home I took my car up and had it washed and then I vacuumed the inside out. Back home just did a few small chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s earlier. 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!

 

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

 

 

 

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Ross, Ohio ihas the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Beans Health Benefits………….
You should learn to love green beans with all of your heart – their powerful combination of fiber, folate, and the minerals magnesium and potassium make green beans a super food for cardiovascular health. Green beans are a healthy addition to almost any eating plan because they are a low-calorie, low-fat source of energy.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Gave Mom a hand doing some Fall Cleaning of the Living Room and Dining Room. Moved everything and vacuumed and dusted. Then cleaned the outside windows, we removed the screens also and sprayed them down. Finally found someone to trim a big tree we have in the front yard, a lot of dead limbs on it. For Dinner tonight Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Baked Macaroni and Cheese.

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet, that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. I’m glad I bought as much Rainbow Trout and Walleye as I could because it’s tough to find some now. So I laid the package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down and cooked it for 3 minutes. Flipped it over and cooked it another 3 minutes until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

Tried another new item tonight, Reser’s Main Street Bistro – Baked Macaroni and Cheese. I came across at Meijer the other day. We had the Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Macaroni and Cheese tonight. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other one was. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Mac and Cheese and loaded with Cheesy flavor! Another Fantastic item to have in the fridge. I also had a slice of the baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread I baked yesterday. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.
