Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy

Today’s Menu: Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy

 

To start this day I prepared some French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. I was starving this morning! 88 degrees, humid and partly cloudy out today. Still real sore from the fall. After Breakfast I headed to Kroger for a few items. On the way back I stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. I love the Wendy’s Breakfast Sandwiches but just to many carbs and calories to start the day. Back home I took my car up and it washed and then vacuumed the inside. Back home I took an elderly neighbor’s car and had the oil changed for her. I don’t know why she keeps her car, she’s unable to drive anymore. I guess it would be hard to give up after 60 or more years of driving. For Dinner tonight it’s a Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy.

 

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. 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!

 

To go with the Chops I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

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 it’s 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! Served with Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/ Snack later Breyer’s 90 Calorie Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Cup.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy

 

To start this day I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich using al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty and served on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. These Sausage are so good and only 80 calories for the patty. To go with the Sandwich I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy, 82 degrees and humid out there today. Safelight came today and replaced Mom’s passenger side rear window. Great service! Swept and cleaned outside. I also planted Mom’s new flowers for her. For Dinner tonight it’s a Grilled Boneless Pork Ribeye Chop w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Golden Hominy.

 

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. 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!

 

 

 

To go with the Chops I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

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 it’s 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! Served with Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. For Dessert/ Snack later a bowl of Skinny  Pop Popcorn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I Poached an Egg which I served on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees with rain in the morning and sunny for the afternoon. After it cleared off I got out the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. I finished adding Potting Soil to the Planter Boxes. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with the Fish I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish 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 fixed Mom a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

Fried Branzino w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Cut Green Beans, and Italian Olives

Today’s Menu: Fried Branzino w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Cut Green Beans, and Italian Olives

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. 77 degrees, mostly cloudy and very windy out today. After my Tea I picked up a friend of mine and we went to Jungle Jim’s International Market, the store with everything and more! She loves going there as much as I do. I picked up some Sea Scallops, Orange Roughy Fillets, and Branzino Fillets. Back home did a few chores outside. So for Dinner tonight I’m having Fried Branzino w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Cut Green Beans, and Italian Olives.

 

To prepare my Branzino I’ll need Salt, Pepper, Zatarains Seafood Breading, and Bertolli Cooking Olive Oil. First time Ive had Branzino in quite some time. I heated up a skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added 2 tablespoons of the Olive Oil. Heated it on Medium Heat. As that was heating I got the Fish ready. Washed them off in Cold Water and patted them dry with a paper towel. Then seasoned them with the Salt and Pepper and then rolled them in the Zatarain’s Breading.

 

With the skillet heated I added the Fillets. Cooked them for 1 1/2 minutes per side. They fried up to Golden Brown and were Delicious! I’ll have to start buying these way more often.

 

 

 

 

To go with the Fish I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish 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. I also had a few Italian Mixed Olives, which goes great with Branzino. For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Branzino – “European Bass”
Branzino is a mild white fish popular in Italian cuisine and usually roasted whole and served with lemon. Also called European bass, the fish has been showing up on menus around the country and world as chefs and diners enjoy branzino’s sweet, flaky meat.
The European bass is a primarily ocean-going fish native to the waters off Europe’s western and southern and Africa’s northern coasts, though it can also be found in shallow coastal waters and river mouths during the summer months.
