For quick and easy garlic bread sticks, split a hot dog bun down the middle and cut each half lengthwise. Butter each strip; sprinkle with garlic salt or garlic powder. Place on a cookie sheet and bake or broil until toasted. If you want to kick it up a little more add some Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese to the top of each bread stick.

When seasoning a dish in your Crock Pot, use chili powders and garlic powder sparingly as these can sometimes intensify over longer cook times.

Use those Spices and Herbs…..

 

If you feel your food is too bland, avoid using salt to spice it up; opt for garlic powder or onion powder instead.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin 006

 

 

 

It’s been a bit more humid today, cloudy with showers later in the day. Had to have the fridge worked on today, ice maker on the blink. After that I ran an errand for Mom and stopped by the bank. Not a whole lot going on today. For dinner tonight, Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

 

 

cumin-spiced-pork-roast-2
I had come across the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin recipe a while back on-line, there’s several variations of it on various sites. To prepare it I’ll need; 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. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! By far my favorite Pork recipe anymore.

 

 

 

 

For one side I had the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes from last night, just reheated and served. Then I also heated up a can of Walmart Brand Sliced Carrots. Also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Chocolate Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Cumin Spiced pork Tenderloin Potato Salad 004
It’s been one hot and humid day around here today, about 93 degrees and as I said very humid. Went to the bank, post office, and Kroger early and got back home. If you have any breathing problems today is not the day to be out. For dinner tonight a couple of new ones, I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Sliced Carrots and Cheddar and Bacon Potato Salad.

Look at that Beautiful Crust!

I found the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin recipe a while back on-line, several variations of it. To prepare it I’ll need; 1/2 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. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious and moist Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Pork.

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared another new one, Cheddar and Bacon Potato Salad. This one comes from the Simply Potatoes website (http://www.simplypotatoes.com/) To make this one I’ll need; 1 package Simply Potatoes® Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, 1/2 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Chipotle Mayonnaise, 1/2 cup Daisy Light Sour Cream, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Chives, 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt, Ground Pepper to taste, 1/3 cup Sargento Reduced-Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, 1/4 cup Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon Bits, and 1/4 cup finely chopped Red Onion. To prepare it Place 1 package Simply Potatoes® Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes in a medium saucepan with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook about 10 minutes or until potatoes are just tender. Let cool. As the Potatoes are cooling mix mayonnaise, sour cream, chives, garlic salt, and pepper in a large serving bowl until well blended. Then gently stir the Potatoes into dressing until well coated. Sprinkle with Cheese, Bacon, and Red Onion; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir toppings in just before serving. Another keeper recipe, not a huge Potato Salad fan until now! I also heated up a can of Walmart Brand Sliced Carrots along with a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Grouper w/ Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Wheat Bread

 

 

Blackened Grouper Risotto Carrots 001

It’s been a chilly but a sunny and beautiful day out today! Started the day off by making an Egg, Canadian Bacon, and English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich with the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker I had purchased about a month ago. Love this thing, it makes a perfect sandwich every time! Since it was above freezing I took my car and Mom’s over to a local car wash and had them both cleaned, and both needed it! Went to the grocery and home for the day. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Grouper Fillet w/ Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Wheat Bread.

 

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I laid one of the Gulf Coast Grouper Fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. A friend of mine who goes down to the gulf Side of Florida quite often always brings me back some of his fresh caught Grouper. These are always some of the finest tasting Grouper I’ve ever had! i started by rinsing the fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it into smaller pieces. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. Then I got out my favorite skillet, The Cast Iron Skillet. Is there any better pan? You can’t stain it, you fry in it, bake in it, and all temperatures. Just make sure you clean it and keep it seasoned, it will last a life time and then some! Anyway added Canola Oil to the skillet and heated it on medium high. When the pan was fully heated I added my Grouper. Cooked it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! This fish is just soooo good, hard to describe! Moist and bursting with flavor. I hope my friend catches a lot of grouper while he’s down there after the first of the year, and keeps me in mind!

 

 

 

For one side dish I made some Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto. I used Lundberg Creamy Parmesan Risotto. Quick, easy, and delicious Risotto dish. Ready in about 25 – 30 minutes. I added some fresh sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms to it as it was cooking. Then when it was ready I sprinkled some fresh grated Parmesan Cheese on it. Then I also boiled some Mini Carrots and had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.

Buffalo Brats 002

 

I had ordered a Wild Idea Buffalo Holiday Package that included a 1 lb. package of Buffalo Brats. So today for lunch I prepared my first one. It was real easy to prepare; just put about a 1/2 ich of water in a medium skillet and heated on medium heat. As the water started to boil I added the Brat and put the lid on, Cooked for about 10 minutes and removed the lid and let it cook another 4 minutes. It’s one good Buffalo Brat! Seasoned just right and very tender. Just another one I’ll have to keep in stock in the freezer.

Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Grouper w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Grouper w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

 

Grouper Roasted Red Pot Asparagus 004
A couple of friends of mine had been in their Florida home for a week or so and they came home yesterday and brought me some Fresh Gulf Coast Grouper! Now this beats any old T- Shirt! How fresh is it you ask? It was caught Sunday Afternoon and dropped off to me Monday about 6:00 pm, that’s fresh. I froze 5 fillets and kept one out for dinner tonight. Went to the local Kroger and picked up some Gourmet Red Potatoes and fresh Asparagus to go with the Grouper. For dinner tonight, Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Grouper w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus.

 

 
I started by rinsing the fillet off with water and patted dry with a paper towel. Melted a tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillet down with the butter. Then seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt and then with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning, rubbing the Blackened Seasoning on both sides of the fillet until it was well covered. Heated up a Cast Iron Skillet and fried the fillet. Always have your overhead stove fan on when Blackening, it will create the smoke! I fried it about 4 minutes per side. After the smoke cleared the Grouper came out perfect! Gulf Coast Grouper by itself is delicious but Blackening it just brings that much more flavor. I’ve said it before, “I could live on Fish”.

 

 
For one side dish I prepared Roasted Red Potatoes. I quartered and seasoned the Red Potatoes with Dill, Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder. I used a Cast Iron Skillet that I heated up on medium and added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I added the Red Potatoes and fried them for about 7 minutes and then put them in the oven, that was already at 400 degrees, and roasted them for about another 20 minutes until they were fork tender. Excellent way to prepare Red Potatoes! I also made some Quick Skillet Asparagus. Just heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add Canola Oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add the Asparagus to pan; cooked about 3 minutes until the Asparagus was crisp-tender and browned, stirring frequently. To season the Asparagus I added Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Garlic Salt, and Crumbled Turkey Bacon. Delicious meal all centering around the Florida Gulf Coast Grouper, a big thank you to Jim and Linda for the Grouper, and paired with the Red Potatoes and fresh Asparagus. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
