Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up a Sunny Side Egg, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very hungry this morning. Cloudy and 69 degrees out today. After Breakfast went McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs for Dinner so I got those on early today. Then it house cleaning today. Dusted, Vacuum, and did 2 loads of laundry. Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Light).

 

 

 

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

 

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

Today’s Menu: Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, and Cheddar Cheese. I really love these. So easy to prepare and very good! Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving, which is excellent. Mostly cloudy and 54 degrees out this afternoon. After Breakfast I went up to the local Kroger I needed a few items and Mom did also. Then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Later on I went to Walmart, I needed some potting soil to repot some indoor plants. For Dinner tonight its a Pork Boston Butt! Tonight its Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

The other day when we went to Jungle Jim’s they had Pork Boston Butt Roasts on sale so I grabbed one. I used a real easily prepared recipe for it. Using one of my favorite cooking vessels, the Crock Pot. To make this I’ll need the following; Pork Boston Butt Roast, 1/4 cup of Water, JB’s Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub, and JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I applied the Rub all over Pork Shoulder and sealed it in a plastic bag. Let it Refrigerate until ready to use the next day. Pulled the Pork Shoulder from the fridge, shaking off any excess Rub. Then to prepare it I lined my Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Plastic Bag Liner and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. Love these Crock Pot Liners, makes for an easy cleanup! Turned the Crock Pot on High. Placed the Meat in the slow cooker with Water. Covered and cooked on High for 1 hour. Turned it to Low and cooked 7 to 9 hours longer, until fall apart tender.

 

 

 

 

 

Removed the Roast with the Bear Claws into a bowl. A word about these Bear Claws; I love these things to remove meat and roasts from whatever you’re cooking it in on to a plate. Word of caution though, these things are very sharp so be careful with them. I used the bear Claws to Shred the Pork. I normally re add to the Crock Pot with BBQ Sauce but Mom just wanted to add the BBQ Sauce to her Sandwich so we did it that way. I needed the Crock Pot anyway to cook the other 1/2 of the Boston Butt. It was too big to cook it all at once so I cooked the 1/2 and took it out later tonight. We are using JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce for our BBQ Sauce. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun, with extra BBQ Sauce on the side. Nothing but a winning Pork Butt Dish! So tender and seasoned just right with Rub and BBQ Sauce. A lot of leftovers for some delicious Sandwiches and Meals the rest of the week!

 

 

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Golden Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

To start my morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light 100% Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy, humid, and a high of 97 degrees outside today.
Long day on the phone with my Supplement insurance, Anthem Blue Cross. I’ve had my policy since around 2004, I became disabled in 2001. I had always made my payments but for the last 2 years I have to call my payment in because for some reason they couldn’t take it out automatically. Well now I get a letter that I owe them $7,600 dollars because they said they increased my rates in 2017 because I’m disabled! I was never informed of this increase or I would have canceled my policy. Now they want $854 a month for a Supplement Policy!! And I owe them back pay to cover the new rate since early 2017! I’m not happy right now. And it’s still unresolved! NOT HAPPY! I’ll let you know how it turns out. So for Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

 

I had the 3 Bean Chili in the freezer. So I sat a container of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. The Chili freezes and reheats so easy. I’ll have to make some more, it’s my last container! To reheat the Chili; I’ll use a small sauce pan, spray it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, add the Chili to the pan, and heat slowly on medium low heat until heated through. The Chili is just as good as it was when it was made! To go with the Chili I made some Johnny Cakes. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread! I’ve left the original post which gives the ingredients and directions on making the Chili. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

When I prepare my Chili I prepare the Ground Turkey and mix the Beans the night before. So the morning I’m making it everything is ready! I had the Crock Pot set up also. To make the Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in a 1/2 a Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it and it turns out delicious.

 

The first thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

 

 

The Beans and Ground Turkey were prepared last night. I started by opening all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Then in the morning, I added the Beans to Crock Pot. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours.

 

Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread!

To start my morning off I made my favorite Breakfast. I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. It was 37 degrees this morning, above freezing to start the day! We had a high of 45 and it was partly cloudy. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry and then went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Cleaned the house,dusted and vacuumed. Later on went up and had the car washed. The Car Wash was making a fortune, cars were lined up all over. Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Savory Potatoes and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

I purchased the Ribs at Meijer Tuesday afternoon. Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge.

For one side dish I prepared the Little Potato Co. Savory Herb Potatoes. We love these! The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! Love all Beans! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding..

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this Monday morning I Poached an Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s quite a weather day out there today. When I got up this morning it was snowing. After Breakfast it was sleeting. Then by 11:00 it was freezing rain! So we’ve had it all today. We had a high of 38 degrees, which is the highest we’ve had in 3 weeks. They say 40’s tomorrow and 50’s by Wednesday, hope they have it right! It’s a good day to have some Slow Cooker 3 Bean Turkey Chili! So for Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

I had the 3 Bean Chili in the freezer. So I sat a container of it in the fridge overnight to thaw. The Chili freezes and reheats so easy. I’ll have to make some more, it’s my last container!

The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

 

 

 


To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. I love the combination of Chili and Cornbread!

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

For Breakfast on this Chilly Monday morning I fried up some Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also fried a Sunnyside Up Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. As I mentioned it’s Chilli out there. Went out to get the morning paper and it was 30 degrees with a cold breeze, 53 degrees and cloudy out for the day. Did some house cleaning after Lunch and finished up some laundry for Mom. Pretty quiet Monday today. A good day to make a Slow Cooker 3 Bean Turkey Chili! Dinner tonight its 3 Bean Turkey Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

 

When I prepare my Chili I prepare the Ground Turkey and mix the Beans the night before. So the morning I’m making it everything is ready! I had the Crock Pot set up also. To make the Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in a 1/2 a Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it and it turns out delicious.

 

The first thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

 

 

The Beans and Ground Turkey were prepared last night. I started by opening all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Then in the morning, I added the Beans to Crock Pot. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours.

 

Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Also a side of Johnny Cakes, recipe below.

You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. I love the combimation of Chili and Cornbread! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

To start my morning off I made my favorite Breakfast. I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. I’m ready to start my day! Our beautiful streak of weather continues. A bit warmer out today, 75 degrees and sunny! I got my cart out and continued with some yard work this afternoon. I borrowed the neighbors power sprayer and power washed the deck and driveway. Then swept out the shed and straightened it up. Later on just rode around the neighborhood on my cart. I purchased a couple of packages of 1/2 Rack of Pork Loin Back Ribs from Meijer Wednesday and having them for Dinner tonight. Mom and Dad love Ribs, as do I! Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite).

 

Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB ’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating!

 

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Baby back ribs served with fries and cornbread….

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.
