Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Peppered White Gravy, Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

Veal Cutlet White Gravy 005
Just a drop dead gorgeous Autumn Day out today! We’ve been lucky with the weather this year. Cooler weather coming in though with highs around 60 or mid 50’s. The trees around here are really starting to turn and a few have lost their leaves. For dinner tonight another comfort food classic; Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Pepper White Gravy, Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s Market last week I purchased some Veal Cutlets. I always have to pick up some Veal while at Jungle Jim’s, they have the best around! I got the big three out to bread these beautiful Veal Cutlets; Flour, Egg Beaters, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the flour with Sea Salt and Ground Pepper and added some Hungarian Paprika to the Egg Beater’s. These were thick cutlets so I had to fry them a little bit longer than you would normally fry Veal. I fried them in Canola Oil about 5 minutes per side. The coatings gave it a fantastic golden brown coating and the cutlet was tender and moist, and seasoned just right. You could cut by using a fork! Topped it with some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy that I whipped up.

 

 

For sides I warmed up some leftover Green Beans that my Mom had made the night before. Nice size and full Green Beans. I also heated up an individual serving of Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes and topped them with a bit of Peppered White Gravy also.. I had a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread also. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Bar.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Veal is the meat of young cattle (calves), as opposed to meat from older cattle. Though veal can be produced from a calf of either sex and any breed, most veal comes from male calves (bull calves) of dairy cattle breeds.

Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Wheat Bread

Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin 007

 
The weather, still on a roll here! Spent the morning taking my Mom to Jungle Jim’s Market, she wanted Watermelon, Green Beans and a few other items. Of course I wasn’t going to miss the chance to go, love going there always find something new and different. I was amazed at the Ostrich Eggs again! Their big enough to several families. While there I picked up a couple of Boar’s Head Meats to make lunch with and a new type of Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar they had, Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar Small Business Exempt. I’ll have to do some research on this one to find out about it. It’s possibly some of the best Sharp Cheddar I’ve ever had. For dinner tonight I prepared a Herb Crusted Pork Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Brown Gravy, Green Beans, and Wheat Bread.

 

 
This is my favorite Pork Loin Roast recipe, Herb Crusted Pork Roast. It seems the more you prepare one of your favorite dishes the better it gets. As you make more you add a pinch of this and that to the point where you have tuned a perfect dish! And this is how this recipe is now. Preheat your oven on 450 degrees, you’ll reduce the heat to 400 after 15 minutes. You combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper (to taste), 4 cloves garlic, minced, 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves, 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary, with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper for seasoning. You combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed. You then rub into your Pork Roast which will create the Herb Crust as it bakes. Roast the pork for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 400 degrees F and roast for an additional 30 minutes or heated till the correct temperature. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. The Pork comes out perfect! The Herb Crust gives that extra taste to make it one delicious Roast! Love this recipe. Both my Mom and Dad agreed, this one perhaps was the best yet (and I agree).

 

 

 

For sides to go with the Roast I prepared some Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, microwave a total of 6 minutes and their done and just as good as anyone’s homemade Mashed Potatoes. I heated up a small jar of Heinz Gravy/ Pork to top the Mashed Potatoes and sliced Pork with.Then my Mom fixed the Green Beans she had bought this morning. It was a stick to your ribs type of dinner tonight! I also had a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Slow-Cooked Sunday Chicken w/ Whole Grain Bread

 

Slow-Cooked Sunday Chicken 006

These beautiful Fall Days are spoiling us! Cool mornings followed by sunny crisp days, it’s hard to beat this weather! Unfortunately I did,t get a chance to go out and enjoy much of it as I suffered with a Sinus Headache through most of it. Thank goodness I had already planned for a Crock Pot Dinner tonight. I prepared Slow-Cooked Sunday Chicken w/ Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

This is a new recipe, I came across it on a Taste of Home email and thought I would give it a try, and glad I did!. It has Chicken, Carrots, Onion, Celery, Green Beans, Red Potatoes, Turkey Bacon, Milk, and Spices all in a Crock Pot! It was very easy to prepare, just layer in everything and then add your Milk and Water and Spices in your Crock Pot. Put the lid on it and heat on low for 6 – 8 hours, and then we have our complete meal. Chicken served with Green Beans, Carrots, and Red Potatoes. Excellent recipe, everything combines great and seasoned just right! The recipe called for Bone – in Skinless Chicken Breasts but I used Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, all I had in the freezer. Next time I prepare this I would maybe add some Hugarian Paprika, nothing major. Another one of those keeper recipes! Just right for two people or one with a dinner leftover. I also had a couple of slices of Klosterman Whole Grain Wheat Bread, first time I tried this also. They were out of my normal brand so I gave this a try and it works! it was very fresh, same calories and carbs, with a bit of nutty taste to it (and it comes in half loaves). For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunks Cup.

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Baked Pork Chop w/ Fried Apples, German Potato Salad, and Green Beans

 

Baked Chop German Pot salad 007

It started out a rainy morning and the a sunny and a bit humid afternoon and then some heavy late afternoon and evening showers. just a lazy day of being a Couch Potato watching some College Football! For dinner a comfort food Heaven; Cast Iron Skillet Baked Pork Chop w/ Fried Apples, German Potato Salad, and Green Beans.

 

 

I had picked up some beautiful, good size, Pork Loin Center Cut Chops. I marinated the Chop in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce for 4 hours in the fridge. To prepare it i broke out the Cast Iron Skillet, just something about the Cast Iron Skillets that I love using them. Added about 1/2 tablespoon of Canola Oil to the Skillet and browned both sides I then moved to the oven, which I had preheated on 400 degrees. I then baked it for about 22 minutes. I pulled it out when it hit 150 degrees (internal temperature) and let it set for 5 minutes to let it finish cooking. I love Chops and this one was delicious! The JB’s BBQ Sauce is the perfect marinade for any Pork.

 

 

One side dish was some Fried Apples. My Mom taught me how to make these a long time ago and I still fry them that way except now I use Splenda instead of Sugar. To prepare them I used Macintosh Apples that I peeled and sliced into smaller slices. I used a Cast Iron Skillet for these also. To fry them I used a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, heated the Skillet up on High and added the Apples. I fried them, while stirring, for about 5 minutes and as they started to soften up I added about 3 tablespoons of Splenda Sugar Blend, maybe a tad less. Then stirred until well mixed and the Apples were soft. My Grandmother made Fried Apples this way, my Mom learned from her, and now I continue making them. Good Fried Apples!

 

 

Another side dish was Read German Potato Salad. First time I had tried canned German Potato Salad, I had tried the Read 3 Bean Salad and it was very good so I thought I would give this a try. I heated it up about 10 minutes in a small sauce pan and it was ready. It had a real good taste with plenty of Potatoes and nice Bacon size pieces. It does have a little strong Vinegar taste but I liked it, plus it’s only 120 calories and 20 net carbs per serving. I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. One nice Comfort Food Dinner! For dessert/snack later a 110 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Diced New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

 

Great Range Bison Sirloin 005

Sort of a long day today, I was dealing with those dreaded Phantom Pains again today! When these start up till the time they end I’m pretty much in shutdown mode. It’s always amazing how painful these are without the aching part, in my case left leg, being these. They have finally started to ease up towards the early evening. For dinner tonight I prepared a Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Diced New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

I was out of the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks so I went with Great Range Bison Sirloin. Great range is a very good Bison Meat supplier and the only one that sold here locally, Kroger sells the Sirloins and Ground Bison Products. Their not quite the sweet and wild flavor as Wild Idea Buffalo but still a very good one. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I pan fried it in Canola Oil, about 4 1/2 minutes per side. I cooked it a tad longer than normal Bison, these were a bit thicker cut. It came out just as I like them, nice sear on the outside and a nice pink center on the inside. Served it with Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

The sides were complements of Del Monte again! I had Del Monte Diced New Potatoes along with Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. I love Baked Potatoes but for the past month or so the Baking Potatoes around here haven’t been very good. Bad year for Potatoes maybe? For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Hot Fudge Topping, good stuff!

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Rainbow Trout w/ Sliced new Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

Blackened Rainbow Trout 010

Beautiful sunny day out, we’re having a beautiful stretch of Fall sunny days. Helped spruce up the yard and went to a local Kroger. I went to get some Ground Turkey, which I did, but came across some beautiful Rainbow Trout I couldn’t pass by! I also found some of the largest White Seedless Grapes I have ever seen, you can see them by the picture I took of them. As big as they were, they were just as sweet just bursting with flavor! I had haddock last night for dinner and just had to have the Rainbow Trout tonight. For dinner I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Rainbow Trout w/ Sliced new Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

The Rainbow Trout came from the Kroger Seafood Department. I rinsed the fillet off with water and patted dry with a paper towel. Melted a couple of 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 in till both sides of the Trout were covered. Heated up the Cast Iron Skillet and fried the fillets. Always have your overhead stove fan on when Blackening, it will create the smoke! I started by frying it skin side down about 3 minutes then flipping it over and frying it another 3 minutes, looks perfect! Not only looked good but was delicious. Just love Blackened Fish, always just an incredible taste and smokieness.

 

Blackened Rainbow Trout 001

For sides it was all thanks to Del Monte tonight! I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes and a can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. Just open, heat, and serve! For dessert later some of those huge White Seedless Grapes and a couple of slices of a Honeycrisp Apple.

Today’s Menu: Roasted Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Breast w/ Boiled Rosemary New Potatoes and Green BeansJen O Turk Breast New Pot 007

 

 

 

It’s been another Fall like day around here today, about 39 degrees early this morning and 70 during the day. I went to Kroger early this morning, because it’s a lot closer than other stores, and noticed quite a few increases on prices! Just watch what you buy there. For dinner a new Jennie – O Turkey product, Sun-Dried Tomato Premium Portion Turkey Breast. For dinner tonight I prepared Roasted Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Breast w/ Boiled Rosemary New Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 
I had purchased the Jennie – O Turkey Sun-Dried Tomato Premium Portion Turkey Breast a couple of weeks ago at Walmart and had it in the freezer. I let it set in the fridge overnight to thaw. It comes already preseasoned in Sun-Dried Tomato, Chili Pepper, Garlic, and Onion. I added some Sea Salt and Ground White Pepper. To prepare I preheated the oven on 350 degrees and roasted it in a small roasting pan on a wire rack. It’s already precooked so I just more less reheated it for about 12 minutes, till it was heated through. Came out perfect! Nicely seasoned and very moist, nice to have these in the freezer for last minute dinner ideas.

 

 

For sides I boiled some New Potatoes. I boiled them in water that I seasoned with a Bay Leaf and Sea Salt, until they were fork tender. I also reheated some fresh Green Beans that my Mom had prepared the night before. For dessert later fresh sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Fried Seasoned Haddock w/ Parmesan Risotto and Cut Green BeansHaddock rissoto 006

 

 

Spent the afternoon watching College Football along with some of my Ohio State and Univ. of Cincinnati Friends. I’m glad Football is back, and the NFL starts Thursday Night! For dinner i prepared what’s becoming my favorite Fish, Haddock. I prepared a Fried Seasoned Haddock w/ Parmesan Risotto and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

The Haddock just frys up so good with a great taste. To prepare it I had a big fillet that I rinsed in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. I pan fried them in Canola Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Delicious! Anymore I use some type of Zatarain’s product on about 1/2 my meals I prepare throughout the week.

 

Haddock rissoto 001

 

One side dish I prepared was a box of Lundberg Creamy Parmesan Risotto. Quick, easy, and delicious Risotto dish. Ready in about 25 – 30 mionutes. I sprinkled some fresh grated Parmesan Cheese on it when it was finished. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.

It was spruce the car up day! Ran it through the Car Wash, cleaned the inside and windows, and had the oil changed and tires rotated. The old 1999 Ford Taurus is still running good, and has 142,00 miles on it. Been real lucky with this car. For dinner tonight, Baked Pork Chop w/ Baked Hasselback Potato, Teriyaki Marinated Mushrooms, and Green Beans.

 

 

For the Pork Chop I marinated it in J B’s Fat Boy’s Haug Waush Barbecue Sauce and refrigerated it for 6 hours. I removed the Chop from the fridge and shook off any excess of the sauce and then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried the Chop, in a Cast Iron Skillet, browning both sides then baked the Chops at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes and then flipping the Chops over and baking another 25 minutes or until temperature reads 165 degrees. The Chop came just dripping with flavor! Love those JB’s Sauces!

 

 

For one of the side dishes I prepared something I had been wanting to try for quite some time, a Baked Hasselback Potato. I used the recipe from myrecipes.com Which is full of great recipes of all kinds. I cut back on the amount of Butter it said to use and I also used Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. It was very easy to prepare, I Preheated oven to 425°. Slice the potato crosswise at 1/8-inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom. I baked it in a buttered 10-inch pie dish. Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon melted butter evenly over it, and sprinkled with Sea Salt. Then baked it at 425° on middle oven rack for 30 minutes. Sprinkled with breadcrumbs over the potato, drizzled with remaining melted butter (1/2 Tbs), and baked 20 more minutes. Excellent recipe! Should have tried these a long time ago. Would make a perfect side dish for any meal! I left the original recipe along with the web link at the end of the post. I also had some Kroger Deli Teriyaki Marinated Mushrooms and Green Beans leftover from last nights dinner. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.
