Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start this morning. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Tea I took Mom out to Ross, Ohio to pick up fresh Corn, Green Beans, and Tomatoes. On the way home she wanted to stop by Jungle Jim’s Market also. Back home I took my car up and had it washed and then I vacuumed the inside out. Back home just did a few small chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s earlier. To 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. To prepare it, preheat the 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 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

 

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Ross, Ohio ihas the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Beans Health Benefits………….
You should learn to love green beans with all of your heart – their powerful combination of fiber, folate, and the minerals magnesium and potassium make green beans a super food for cardiovascular health. Green beans are a healthy addition to almost any eating plan because they are a low-calorie, low-fat source of energy.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

To start this Thursday morning off I prepared a Egg Beater’s Egg White Ham and Cheese Omelet. Used Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, Meijer Diced Ham, and Sargento Off the Block Shredded Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87, humid, with a couple of passing showers out there today. Not much going on today. Did a few things around the house and then caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight.To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. 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 had opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them already cooking. I love these, Green Beans they always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Take Care and Stay Safe all!

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

Woke up with a big appetite! I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich. I used 4 slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, 1/2 slice of Swiss Cheese, a Fried Egg, and served on a Thomas Light English Muffin. With that first bite the Egg Yolk busted and spread all over the Sandwich. It was one gooey and delicious mess, it was a 2 napkin Breakfast! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 94 and partly sunny out, rain moving in later in the day. Not much going on today. Did a few things around the house.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for my Breakfast. 91 degrees and mostly sunny out. After Breakfast I took Mom’s car up and had it washed, filled it with gas, and stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the cart out of the shed to get some yard work done. As always I sprayed sunscreen on nice and thick, need it in this sun! I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs today! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer a couple of weeks ago and had them in the freezer. I sat them in the fridge to thaw yesterday afternoon. Then Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot. Again just flat out delicious Fall off the Bone Ribs! And the JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Seasoning is so good on these Pork Ribs!

 

I prepared a small kettle of some more of those fresh Green Beans that we picked up in Ross, Ohio last week or so. These Beans are so good! Each Pod is loaded with big Beans. I could have these every day and never tire of them.

 

For another side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start this hot and muggy morning. After Tea I took Mom to Jungle Jim’s. We bought some Green Beans, Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Pork Chops and a few other things. Really surprised they had a ton of 1/2 Runner Green Beans. Back home I got the cart out of the shed and repaired a couple of places of the skirting around the deck. We had a Ground Hog problem, but no more my neighbor set a trap out and we got him! He was huge one and had been tearing stuff around a few of the houses. We took him to a local park and released him. The Green Beans we purchased earlier were big and full 1/2 Runner Green Beans. So Mom decided to go back to Jungle Jim’s and buy more of the Green Beans. We wanted enough to can 7 quarts. I dropped off at the front door and she and another woman bought what was left of the Green Beans. Just this morning they had 2 bins full of Green Beans. I guess when word leaked out how nice they were for $2.49 a lb. a lot of people came and bought them. Glad we were able to get more to can, we can tomorrow! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s earlier. To 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. To prepare it, preheat the 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 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! Plus we have 7 more quarts of Beans coming tomorrow!

For another side I boiled an Ear of Sweet Corn, thanks again to Jungle Jim’s! It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

Another day of 95 degrees, mostly sunny and very humid out with a heat index around 101 degrees. Once again after Breakfast I got some yard work done before the heat and humidity kicked in. There must be a high pollen or mold count outside today. When I came in my head was killing me and sneezing. I’m done for the day! For Dinner tonight its Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

I had to hit the freezer to search for Dinner. I came across a package of Simple Truth Chicken Tenderloins (Tenders) last night. So I sat them in the fridge to thaw overnight. To prepare them I’ll need McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Poultry Herb Blend, Garlic Salt, Flour, Pam Cooking Spray, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

I seasoned and Floured the Tenders and set then aside. I grabbed a large skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Spray and heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet heated I added 2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. When the skillet was heated I added the Tenders, I cooked them in 2 batches so not to over crowd the skillet. I cooked them for about 5 minutes and flipped them over to continue cooking them another 4 minutes. I checked the Tenders with a meat thermometer and I had the correct reading of 165 degrees F. Removed the first batch on to a paper towel lined plate and cooked the next batch.

 

They came out excellent! Good Seasoning and the Flour gave it a good crust. Served these with sides of LiteHouse Lite Blue Cheese and Hidden Valley Ranch Buffalo Dressing.

 

 

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 prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Buying fresh Green Beans……………………….

Look for crisp, brightly colored beans. Hold one and bend it in half—a fresh bean will snap cleanly. If you spot haricots verts, grab ’em—these thinner French green beans are more tender than the regular ones. Love those Green Beans!
