Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chops w/ Maple and Cured Bacon Baked Beans, Sliced Potatoes, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Breakfast Tacos. I used these Mission Street Taco Flour Mini Tortillas the other day and loved them! So I decided to make some Breakfast Tacos with them. To make them; I Scrambled and Egg, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage links, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican, and Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. One delicious Breakfast! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom went to Breakfast with a neighbor. Cloudy and humid, 84 degrees. Had rain moving in later in the day. I had bought 3 Tomato Plants last week and had to get them out and planted on the side of our shed. I had to put up some wire mesh also, Rabbit problems! For Dinner tonight Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chops w/ Maple and Cured Bacon Baked Beans, Sliced Potatoes, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

I had bought a package of Center Cut Pork Loin Chops from Meijer earlier in the week. I had broke the package down and had the individual Chops in plastic bags, in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of the bags and laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare my Chop 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 pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 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 1 side I prepared a can of the Bush’s Maple and Cured Bacon Baked Beans. First time using these. You taste the hint of the Maple Syrup and nice portions of the Cured Bacon, nice combo! To prepare them just emptied the contents into a sauce pan. Heat to simmer and serve! As all the Bush’s Beans they were fantastic! Another Bush’s product to have in the pantry.


For another side to go with the Chops I prepared a can of Del Monte Sliced Potatoes. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through and done. Beans and Potatoes are great with the Pork Chops! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Sprite Zero to drink.


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.


A HINT OF SWEETNESS
BUSH’S MAPLE and CURED BACON BAKED BEANS

When you catch a craving for delicious, we’ve got your cure. BUSH’S® Maple & Cured Bacon Baked Beans are sweetened to perfection. We start with navy beans, then add a touch—and not a drop more!—of maple syrup. The result? A hint of sweetness that people have been loving for good reason since 2000.

Today’s Menu: Baked Pork Chop w/ Harvest Vegetables, Cinnamon Apples, and Whole Grain Bread

Had one of Meijer‘s large Center Cut Pork Loin Chop. I marinated it in J B’s Fat Boy’s Haugwaush Barbcue Sauce and refrigerated it for 3 hours. I removed the chop from the fridge and shook off any excess of the sauce and then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Black Peppercorn and then applied a light rub of McCormick Grillmate’s Applewood Rub. I then pan browned the Chop on both sides then baked the Chops at 350 degrees for 35 minutes and then flipping the Chops over and baking another 30 minutes until the temperature read 165 degrees. I love these Big Chops moist and tender and perfect for baking. And because they are so big it also makes some great leftovers for breakfast the next morning.

For sides I had  Pictsweet Steam’ables Lightly Sauced Harvest Vegetables w/ Roasted Potatoes and a Garlic Herb Sauce. It contains Sugar Snap Peas, Carrots and Roasted Red Potatoes.  Easy to fix and only 90 calories and 17 carbs per serving! I also had a 1/2 serving of Country Crock Cinnamon Apples and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert a Yoplait Delight 100 Calorie Chocolate Eclair Parfait.

Harvest Vegetables with Roasted Red Potatoes and Herb and Garlic Seasoning
The rustle of leaves, chilly evenings and a good walk in the woods. It’s harvest time, and we’ve brought together sugar snap peas, carrots and robust roasted red potatoes – great vegetables of early fall to steam up for a burst of real stick-to-the-ribs flavor.
