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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Nuti Grain Eggos and heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links. I also made a cup of the Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its showers and thunderstorms with a high of 68 degrees. Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. That was about it for the day. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops and had them in the freezer. I grabbed 1 of the Chops from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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° (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!

 

 

 

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. As everything was cooking I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

For Breakfast on this Wintery Sunday Morning I toasted a couple of Nuti Grain Eggos and heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links. I also made a cup of the Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we’ve had a rain, sleet, snow, back to rain and had a high of 33 degrees. Good day to stay in. Cleaned the house then in the kitchen I cleaned the fridge and then the oven. Watched some shows I had recorded later. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bow 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. Wow what a change in the weather! A high of 62 degrees and mostly sunny yesterday and a high of 28 degrees with a wind chill around 22 degrees! Welcome to Ohio Weather! Did some cleaning around the house and then cleaned and straightened 2 closets, much needed. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Roasted Asparagus.

 

 

 

 

I had picked up a package of Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chop at Meijer afew days ago and had them in the freezer. I laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. So 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. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have 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 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 150° (slightly pink), 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. Because of the size of them there is some leftover for Breakfast!

 

 

 

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

 

 


For another side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Butternut Squash Health Benefits………
Low in fat, butternut squash delivers an ample dose of dietary fiber, making it an exceptionally heart-friendly choice. It provides significant amounts of potassium, important for bone health, and vitamin B6, essential for the proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems.

 

 

 

 

Asparagus Health Benefits……..
It’s low in calories and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamins A, C and K. Additionally, eating asparagus has a number of potential health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion, healthy pregnancy outcomes and lower blood pressure.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared French Toast and Sausage. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Cinnamon. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain almost all day on and off, 46 degrees. Good day to stay in, which I needed. Up most of the night battling the Phantom Pains. They started about 9:00 last night and didn’t let up until about 11:00 this morning. It was one long night! So after the Phantom Pains stopped I caught up on some much needed sleep. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a Bone – In Pork Loin Chop and had it in the freezer. I grabbed the Chop from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150, 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!

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chop I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I love the combination of Mashed Potatoes and Beans!

 

 

 

 

 

 


For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these several times now and really love them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Mostly Sunny and 95 degrees outside today. Still suffering through these allergies! And from what the local news said, everyone is fighting them. I did go out for a bit and got the leaf blower out of the shed. I cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then trimmed up the vines along the driveway. After that time to get back inside! Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

We went from a high near 60 degrees yesterday, to a high of 30 with a snow flurries and high winds today. Ohio weather is never boring!

I had never tried this before cumin-spiced-pork-chop-w-purple-passion-aspararagus-savory-herb-002so I was looking forward to giving it try! They said it like Green Asparagus but it’s less fibrous and sweeter due to a higher sugar content. I prepared it the same way as the Roasted Asparagus I’ve made before.

Purple Passion Asparaguscumin-spiced-pork-chop-w-purple-passion-aspararagus-savory-herb-002

Purple asparagus is a similar in appearance and flavor to both white and green varieties as its original cultivar came from green asparagus. Its differentiated by its violet hued stems and conical crowned tips, however its feathery foliage is still green. It is inherently less fibrous thus more tender than other asparagus types. Also, its preferred sweetness is due to its twenty percent higher sugar content than other asparagus varieties.
Purple asparagus’ color comes from the high levels of anthocyanins in the spears. Anthocyanins are potent antioxidant flavonoids that have protective and preventative health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

For my Breakfast I toasted a couple of Eggo Waffles and had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Shortly Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and P 007after Breakfast I headed out to Walmart. You have to go as early as possible when shopping at Walmart if you are dependent on using the electric shopping carts. Walmart has very few of them and if you go later in the day the batteries are usually dead because no one plugs them up to recharge. Anyway I went there to pick up some blankets and sleeping bags. Our Church runs a Meal and Aid center for the homeless and the Church has requested a need for those items with Winter approaching. It breaks my heart to think that people are in need of these basic items just to survive! After Walmart I stopped at Costco and picked up a few cases of canned goods for the Church and a local Homeless Center (Reach Out Lakota). Showers and only a high of 59 degrees out today, Winter is coming! So for dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans/Potatoes.

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and P 002
I grabbed a couple of Pork Chops from the freezer, that I had purchased from Meijer, 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 Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and 005Powder, 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 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 150° (slightly pink), 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 a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that has 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. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

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 Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and P 0031/4 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 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 150° (slightly pink), 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 a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that has 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. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

I really like using the Del Monte Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes, contains 2 of my favorite vegetables (Green Beans and Potatoes). I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and 007
Started my morning with a light Breakfast, a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with a I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Dad is still in the hospital they’ve been running some tests on his heart and lungs. He’s feeling a lot better now and anxious to get home. After getting back from my visit to the hospital to see him I did a load of laundry for Mom and cleaned the house. After that I ran a couple of errands for her and back home. Another beautiful late Summer Day out, sunny and a high around 83 degrees. For dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Harvest Apples 010
Stayed busy most of the day today. I wasn’t that hungry this morning so for Breakfast I had a couple of slices of toasted wheat bread that I topped with I Can’t Belive It’s Not Butter along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After my morning workout I went to Kroger for a few items and then to McDonald’s to pick up breakfast for Mom and Dad. Back home did a few chores in and around the house. Then I had to change all the tubing to Dad’s oxygen machine, which needs replaced monthly. For dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Harvest Apples.
