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

 

 

To start my morning off toasted a couple Nutri Grain Eggos and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 60 degrees and cloudy out today. Did some light cleaning around the house and then a load of laundry. Later on got the Hand-Vac out vacuumed my car insides and the got Mom’s car for her and cleaned the windows inside and out on both cars. That was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I had no clue what to have for Dinner so I did some digging into the freezer. I came across a Meijer Pork Tenderloin Fillet and I had my Dinner, Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin. I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight.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 oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 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 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 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! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple 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.

Today’s Menu: Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Breakfast sandwich. I heated up a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty. As that was heating I toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. I took the Patty put it between the Muffin halves and topped the Patty with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. These are so good! After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom, she wanted some Lunch Meat. I stopped by McDonald’s to pick up her usual Breakfast of a Sausage, Egg, and Cheese on Bagel along with a medium Decaf Coffee. Got the cart out of the shed after Lunch along with a rake and the leaf blower. I went around the house and cleaned the flower beds and around the house. Not bad out today, mostly sunny and 50 degrees. For Dinner tonight its a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip.

 

 

 

 

I had fully intended to prepare a Pork Roast for Dinner tonight, until I went to Kroger. I had went to the Deli to purchase some Kahn’s Bologna and Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, which I did. But I seen them slicing some Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef and it looked way to good to pass up! It was a beautiful Rare and it was on sale. So the menu changed tonight to a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich! So for my Sandwich I’ll be using the Boar’s Head Roast Beef, a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and served on Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Now this is a Sandwich! I Can’t even describe how delicious the Boar’s Head Rare Roast Beef and Cheese is. It’s just so tender and flavorful. And of course Cheese, which makes anything better, with the Mayo and Mustard makes this the perfect Sandwich! To go with the Sandwich I’m having some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips with some Helluva French Onion Dip. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef

Hand-trimmed and carefully seasoned with pepper, garlic, onion and a hint of lemon for tartness, this cut is then slow-roasted to tender perfection. Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roasted Beef packs classic meaty flavor in each rich and savory slice.

Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

 

 

To start the day off I prepared Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Served it with a sprinkle of Sargeto Off the Block Aged Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Mostly sunny and 46 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I went to Walmart for a few items. Walmart finally has a large amount of new electric carts to use! Now I don’t have to get there at 6:00 in the morning to grab a charged cart or find the one cart that works. Anyway I stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom on the way home. Later in the day I went out to the shed and gathered up some things that we no longer need and sat them out for the garbage in the morning. Almost got the shed in shape. For Dinner tonight its a 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

 

 

I had a Wild Idea Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steak in the freezer and I set it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious! To prepare the it I rubbed the Steak with a teaspoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated a Skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender.

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – FINE CUT SIRLOIN STEAK 6 OZ.

We cherry-pick only the finest cuts of the sirloin. These sirloin steaks are a great choice for steak sandwiches, or steak and eggs. Cut from the primal sirloin, these steaks are versatile and delicious. 6 oz.

Today’s Menu: Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese and Ortega Smoked Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 47 degrees out on this St. Patrick’s Day Morning. After Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s and stopped and got gas for her car. Mom didn’t go to Church. She’s feeling a lot better today but still not up to par. I did a load of laundry and it was house cleaning today. Had everything done and watched College Basketball for the afternoon. Dinner tonight another one of those Comfort Foods Dinner, Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

I heated up a can of Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup. My favorite Tomato Soup by far. I’ve been using for quite some time now. So creamy with a fantastic flavor and it’s 110 calories and 19 carbs. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan and heat on medium, stirring often, until heated. And it’s ready to go!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then for my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans

 

 

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. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One delicious Breakfast! No Dinner Post last night. I was at the hospital with Mom. She had been having abdomen pains and sick to her stomach the last few days. So I took her to the ER of a local hospital, and as usual we were there all day! From around noon until after 7:00 last night. She’s better today just real tired from the medication. She had a touch of the flu going around and they found a bit of an infection around one of her bowels. But with the Meds and Rest she’ll be fine! So I just grabbed a bite on the run yesterday. But for Dinner tonight I’m preparing a Beef Cubed Steak w/ Mashed Potatoes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

 

 

I had a package of Meijer Beef Cubed Steak in the freezer that I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. These are the best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out of 1 patty. They come 2 to a package. This is one of the few times I use Beef.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare the Cubed Steak I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy.

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Cubed Steak you always have to have Mashed Potatoes! I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also made a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy to top the Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I opened up another jar of the Canned Green Beans. Just heated them up in a large sauce pan and done! Then I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cube Steak


Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

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.

I added Hellman’s Light Mayo and French’s Yellow Mustard to the Sandwich when I got home. I also had a side of Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and a Diet Caffeine Free Diet Coke to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

To start this Tuesday off I had one of favorites, French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, 1/2 cup of 2% Milk, 1 medium Egg, Ground Nut Meg, Ground Cinnamon, and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Mix the Milk, Egg and Spices together in a bowl and dip the Bread in mixture. Fry until each side is golden brown. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Just fry for 8 minutes and done. For the Syrup topping I used Log Cabin Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Oh how I love French Toast! It’s 50 degrees and partly sunny out today. Ran a couple of errands and stopped by Meijer for a few items. Back home I was all caught up on everything and just took it easy. For Dinner tonight its Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Tilapia while at Meijer earlier. I purchased 2 big and beautiful fillets of the Tilapia, having 1 for Dinner and froze the other one. I also bought a Red Snapper Fillet. So I had already rinsed the fillet in cold water and had it in plastic bag the fridge. To prepare it I’ll need; the Tilapia, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. To start I heated Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet was ready I cooked the Tilapia until Golden Brown, about 3 minutes per side. I had not had Tilapia in a while and it tasted great! Moist with that excellent Zatarain’s Seasoning.

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Lasagna with Meat and Sauce w/ Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

To start this Monday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a Thomas Light Multi Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

Then later, after Lunch, I took my car and had it washed and then to bank. Back home got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas.

Today’s Menu: Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans

 

 

To start the day off I toasted a couple of Eggos – Nutrigrain Waffles and heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and rain most of the day, high of 52 degrees. This sure beats in the teens and snow! After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom for a few items then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her. I cleaned the carpets today in my bedroom and in the spare bedroom. Thought I would clean them one last time before we replace them later this year. For Dinner tonight Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans.

 

 

 

 

For the Sausages I used a package of Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts. There’s 6 Sausages that come in the package, 3 Brats and 3 Mettwursts. To prepare them; Just add the Brats and Metts to a large skillet and add water, until they are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately turn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Cover and Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Light Olive Oil to get a nice crispy finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! I had 1 Brat and 1 Mett. Served them on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

 

 


Then for a side I prepared some Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar. I had these before when having Brats or Metts, they go perfect! I just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated them until they started to simmer, and serve. Love these Bush’s Beans. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

When you’re grilling your favorite meats, you want a side that can hold its own—like the bold taste of BUSH’S® Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans®. We slow-cook plump navy beans in a robust sauce generously seasoned with brown sugar, molasses, a bold blend of spices and a touch of natural bourbon flavor for a side dish that’s decidedly different.
