Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Buffalo Breakfast Sausage Patties, a slice of Aunt Millie’s 1 Calorie Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Tea. I used the Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage. It comes in a 1 lb. package and I form the Patties. These came out delicious, another great Buffalo Product from Wild Idea Buffalo! Outside it’s 43 degrees and cloudy out, the wind made it feel a lot colder at times. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s, her favorite! Then at 1:00 I had to take her for a hearing test. She needs new hearing aids. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Roasted Cauliflower, Green Beans and Dinner Rolls.

 

I bought a Pork Tenderloin while at Kroger along with some Chicken Thighs. I’m having the Pork Tenderloin for Dinner tonight. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 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. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

 

For one side I prepared some Roasted Cauliflower. I love Cauliflower but it’s been tough to find up until the last week or so. I can find them now at Meijer or Kroger, this bag came from Meijer. 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 some Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. You can’t beat these Rolls. 35 calories and 2 net carbs per roll! For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Cauliflower…..

Cauliflower is one of several vegetables in the species Brassica oleracea in the genus Brassica, which is in the Brassicaceae family. It is an annual plant that reproduces by seed. Typically, only the head is eaten – the edible white flesh sometimes called “curd”. – Wikipedia

Nutrition facts
A serving is 1 cup, or about 100 grams, of chopped cauliflower. One serving of raw or cooked cauliflower has:
* 25 calories
* 0 grams of fat
* 5 grams of carbohydrates
* 2 grams of dietary fiber
* 2 grams of sugar
* 2 grams of protein
* 30 milligrams of sodium

Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees and mostly sunny outside today! What a beautiful day. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then headed outside for the afternoon. I washed down the shed and then the outdoor deck. I got the cart out of the shed and then gave it a good cleaning. Pitched a few things and gave away a few items. It feels so good to be outside and in 70 degree weather! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Chicken Strips sounded good for Dinner, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven. I baked them for 18-20 minutes or until heated through: Turn halfway through heating. The Strips came out excellent. Nice Breading and the Chicken was moist and tender. I served these with some Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

For a side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Bread. For Dessert later a Dole Sliced Peaches Cup.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start this morning off I fried up some Cook’s Ham Steak, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love those Hash Browns and Ham. 64 degrees and mostly sunny outside. Took Mom to her Radiation Treatment. 9 more to go! Back home I got the cart out of the shed along with the rake, hedge trimmer, and leaf blower. I have a lot of work to get this yard back in shape. The Winter was so rough on everything. Plus Winter isn’t quite over yet! For Dinner tonight it’s Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

I had bought the Catfish Nuggets from Meijer yesterday. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side for about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty as usual.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes and Green Beans. I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. Mom loves Cornbread! Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

To start this morning off I fried up some Cook’s Ham Steak, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had to crank that heat up this morning, 10 degrees out there. For the day 32 degrees and sunny. Went and got Mom’s Car Washed, stopped by the ATM, and stopped and filled her car up with gas. Back home I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, a lot of leaves. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

Today’s Menu: Prime Rib w/ Au Gratin Potato Casserole and Cut Green Beans

 

To start this 1st day of 2022 off I Fried up some slices of a Cook’s Ham Steak, Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns, i Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Great way to start the New Year! Another day of rain, clouds, and gloomy weather, high of 60 degrees. The rain was steady and heavy at times all day. I was all caught up on everything so I watched some Football Bowl Games and got the Prime Rib Roast in the oven! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Prime Rib w/ Au Gratin Potato Casserole and Cut Green Beans.

 

For the Prime Rib, I purchased it at GFS (Gordon Food Service). It’s a 6 1/4 lb. Prime Rib. It’s already cooked so all I do is reheat it. I had it in the freezer and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare it I heated the oven to 425 degrees. Took it out of the package and heated it in a baking pan for 3 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. Removed it from the oven when done and let it rest for 15 minutes.

 

The Prime Rib turned out perfect! So very tender and moist with excellent flavor. Came out a nice Medium Rare. We’ll purchase one from GFS again next time we have one! I sliced off an extra slice. I prepared a plate for a elderly woman who lives up the street. I usually make her a plate of our Holiday Meals and take them to her.

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I love using these, Delicious and easy to prepare. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post.

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Only a high of 49 degrees, partly sunny, and a cold wind blowing. Fall has arrived and the way it feels Winter is knocking on the door! It was clean the Kitchen day. I pulled out all the canned goods and other items and checked for expiration dates. Found only a few expired items. While I had everything out of the cabinets I cleaned the inside of them. Did the same to the fridge. It took a while but I got a lot done.

Today’s Menu: Buttermilk Marinated Chicken Thighs w/ Cut Green Beans, Diced Potatoes, and Glazed Apples

 

 

For Breakfast This morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in our Weather, Fall is really here! We had a high of 59 degrees, mostly sunny and very windy. The winds kept the temperatures feeling like 50 degrees. The low overnight will be in the 30’s, times are a changin! Anyway after Breakfast I did a load of laundry for Mom. Mom slept most of the day, upset stomach and just not feeling real good. So I took good care of her today. For Dinner tonight I prepared Buttermilk Marinated Chicken Thighs w/ Cut Green Beans, Diced Potatoes, and Glazed Apples.

 

For the Chicken; I started at Noon today. I grabbed a large Hefty Bag and added a 1/2 Pint of Buttermilk to the bag. I then added several shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and shook the bag to blend it together. I then added my Chicken Breasts and let it Marinate in the fridge until it was time to use. I used my favorite, Katie’s Best Chicken Thighs.

 

I usually prepare the Thin Sliced Chicken Breast with Buttermilk Marinade. But what is good for the Breasts is good for the Thighs! So Chicken Thighs it is.  To prepare the Chicken Thighs I grabbed a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed with a coat of Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Then I started heating the skillet on medium heat. Next I added a tablespoon and a half of Olive Oil Cooking Oil. As the skillet heated I got the Chicken out of the fridge and removed it from the bag of Marinade, shaking off the excess. Then I grabbed a pie pan and added Flour to it and seasoned the Flour with Paprika. Took the Chicken Thighs and rolled them in the Seasoned Flour until well covered.

 

Added the Chicken to the heated Skillet. I cooked the Chicken for 4 minutes and then flipped them over and cooked them for 4 more minutes, until golden brown and the meat thermometer read 165 degrees. The Chicken turned out so very good! Cooked up perfect, nice crust, and love the seasoning! Served it with Kraft Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce for dipping.

 

For a side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans!

 

 

For another side it was Del Monte Diced New Potatoes. I’ve had these many times and as always, delicious! To prepare these; empty the Potatoes into a small sauce pan and heat on medium heat until heated through.

 

 

 

I also heated up some Bob Evan’s Glazed Apples, it comes in a microwavable container and is a quick and delicious way to have Glazed Apples. Apples are perfect for any Pork dish! Quite a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 85 degrees and sunny out today, a bit warmer and more humid. After my Tea I headed off to Meijer to pick up some of their sale items they had today. On the way back home I stopped and got the car washed and then I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. As usual the yard was full of leaves. So I got my cart out along with the rake and leaf blower and raked the yard. I also got my neighbor’s yard for them. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Some Chicken Strips sounded good tonight, I used Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips. They come frozen. To prepare them I preheat the oven to 400° degrees. I then grabbed a baking sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I lined the Strips on the sheet and slid the Pan into the oven.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast it was a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 89 degrees, humid, and mostly sunny out today. A Friend of mine broke her leg yesterday. She needed a few items from the store and prescription filled so I went to Walgreens and then on to Meijer for her. Back home I gave a couple of neighbors a hand getting their yard sale tables ready for tomorrow. Tomorrow is our community yard sale. They do this once a year and usually get a huge turnout. Ready to relax tonight! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

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 preheat the broiler. Pat the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Place skin side down on a 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!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Dish! I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites for sure! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzel Sticks with a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout
The rainbow trout is a trout and species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. – Wikipedia

Rainbow trout is packed with protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as potassium – all of which can help to manage high blood pressure, improve muscle strength and boost metabolism. Rainbow trout are loaded with phosphorus, and a good source of Vitamins B6, B12, pantothenic acid, and selenium.

 

 

 

Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning

There’s nothing quite like Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning. A blend of spices that could only come from New Orleans offers a deliciously different flavor than your standard salt and pepper. Shake it on pretty much anything from meats and seafood to soups, salads and eggs.
Ingredients
Salt, Dextrose, Spices (Including Red Pepper, Paprika), Garlic, Sugar, Onion, Disodium Inosinate And Guanylate (Flavor Enhancers), Extractives Of Paprika, And Natural Flavors.
