Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Muti Grain Bread

 

 

 

To start my morning off I had Steak and Egg. I fried up a SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. I it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also, as usual, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Since I’ve been drinking Green Tea, 11 years ago, I’ve never had a bad check-up on my Sugar. Some say it helps and others say not enough evidence. All I know is my Diabetes 2 is under control!

 

Sunny and 66 degrees for our high today, beautiful Fall Day! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer, I need some some Jennie – O Turkey Products and Meijer is the only store that sells a wide variety of the Jennie – O products. Not much else going on today. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 

 

I picked the Chop up at Meijer earlier today. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce.

 

 

 

 

 

So 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 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 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.

 

For one side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans, love my beans! Then I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 

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: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

I had a Scrambled Egg and a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I topped the Egg with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheese. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’m not sure but I may be coming down with a cold, a Summer cold (blah). Hopefully I’ll be up and feeling better by tomorrow. I went to Walgreen’s and picked up something to take in case it is a cold. After that a day of bed rest! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger yesterday, a small one at just over 1 lb. 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 Cumin Spiced 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! The other “White Meat” sure is good!

 

Tried a new Potato Recipe, Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes. Got the idea from several similar recipes. I’ll need; 1 pound Baby Gold Potatoes (halved), 1⁄4 cup Water, 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried Basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried Dill, Sea Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste), 1/4 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Parsley leaves.

 

 

 

To prepare them; Line your Slow Cooker or Crock Pot with a disposable plastic liner. Lightly coat the plastic liner with nonstick spray. Add water. Place potatoes, olive oil, butter, oregano, basil and dill into the slow cooker; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours, you can also cook them on high heat for 2-3 hours. When they are fork tender serve them immediately, sprinkle with Parmesan and garnished with parsley. These came out incredible, another one of those Keeper Recipes! Plus easy clean up using the slow cooker liners.

 

 

 

I also cooked some more of the fresh Green Beans. I love beans, but they are even better when fresh. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a can of Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and French Bread

 

 

So to off my morning off I had a bowl of Kroger Brand Bran Flakes also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast went to the local Kroger for a couple of items for Mom and stopped at McDonald’s to pick Breakfast for Mom. Did some laundry for and cleaned up a bit inside and outside. After Lunch I went up to see Dad for the rest of the afternoon. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and French Bread.

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a large Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce.

 

 

 

 

 

So 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 oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes.

Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

For one side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I made a kettle of the fresh Green Beans we left. I love Beans, especially Fresh Green Beans! Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Potato Pancakes and Fresh Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple Eggo Waffles. Still love these after all these years! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its 83 degrees and humid, some places got a brief shower. After Lunch I took Mom over to the office of where Dad is at for rehab. They briefed us on how Dad was doing and when he might be released. Hope all goes well but Dad’s Dementia is getting worse, not much we can do about that though. Back home not a lot going on, did a few things in and around the house. For Dinner tonight one of my favorites, Catfish Nuggets w/ Potato Pancakes and Fresh Green Beans.

 

 

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Kroger earlier. 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 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. You can bake Catfish but for me you just can’t beat fried Catfish.

 

 

The whole family love’s Potato Pancakes! So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes).

 

 

 

 

Next I cooked some fresh Green Beans. Mom’s Cousin dropped some off to us that they had grown. Had to string them and break them up. Then boiled them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Love these fresh Green Beans! For Dessert/Snacks I had a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Ribeye Steak w/ Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Glier’s Turkey Goetta. I also prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, toasted 1 slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! After Breakfast I went with Mom to the Hospital to see how a family friend was doing. She had exploratory surgery to see if they could find what was giving her stomach pains. She’s one of Mom’s best friend and someone I’ve known for as long as I can remember. Hope that they find what’s wrong she’s a fine lady! A lot of heavy rain and thunderstorms on and off all day, also very muggy out. For Dinner tonight it’s a Buffalo Ribeye Steak w/ Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Used the Wild Idea Buffalo 10 oz. Ribeye Steak, and what a beautiful cut of meat these Ribeyes are! It’s about 1 1/2″ thick with just enough of marbling to make it perfect. To prepare it I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then rubbed the Ribeye with a light coat of Extra Light Olive Oil and then seasoned it with a sprinkle of Garlic Powder, a shake of Ground Roasted Cumin, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

To start I pan fried it, using a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat about 3 minutes per side. Then I put the Skillet in the oven and roasted it until it had internal temperature of 145 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect, love using Cast Iron Skillets; from the stove to the oven! After removing it from the oven I put the Ribeye on a plate and lest it rest for 5 minutes before serving. These Steaks are so moist and tender and have that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. The juices off the Steak was just incredible! Way to big for one meal, I’ll have the leftover for breakfast or lunch tomorrow. Love that Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

For one side I prepared some Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes. I love all the Idahoan products and this one no different. As the others its baked in a casserole dish. To make the dish I’ll need 1 box of the Idahoan Premium Steakhouse Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes, 2 Tbsp Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 3/4 cups boiling water, and 1/2 cup 2% Milk.

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven on 450°F . Then in a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, combine potatoes, contents of sauce pouch, 2 Tbsp butter, and 1 3/4 cups boiling water. Add the 1/2 cup milk and stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 450°F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle crunchy onion topping on top of potatoes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve. Well seasoned and Cheesy. Goes great with Buffalo Ribeye.

 

 

 

For a second side I had some Fresh Cut Green Beans. Mom had purchased some 1/2 Runner Green Beans from Jungle Jim’s the other day. There was a couple of servings left so I reheated those. I can never have enough Green Beans! I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi-Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Vanilla Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo Ribeye Steak 10 OZ.

Steak lovers are serious about their ribeyes. Our juicy, meaty ribeyes will not disappoint. These steaks are incredibly tender due to the area of the bison from which they are cut: the rib primal section. Our 100% grass-fed ribeye steaks will redefine what you think a great steak is. 10 oz.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Savory Herb Potatoes and Cut Green Bea 016

Wow what a beautiful full moon last night and a total lunar eclipse on top of it! We were able to watch the whole thing as the clouds cleared up about an hour before it started. Started my day off with a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with 2 servings of Egg Beater’s Egg Whites. Good little sandwich, also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to get me started. Didn’t get a chance to go see Dad at rehab today but he’s doing a lot better, hopefully back home before long. Stayed home and got caught up on some house cleaning and yard work. Had to get the 4 wheel mobility cart out and the leaf blower and do a little yard work. For dinner tonight, Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and (Fresh) Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 
On my last visit to Costco I picked up a huge package of Pork Chops and had them in the freezer. I got 2 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 Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and 005which 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 Chops 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. Hard to beat these Costco Pork Chops, always top quality.

Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

Then for another side I also picked up a beautiful mess of Green Beans while at Jungle Jim’s. This afternoon Mom and myself broke the Beans up and then I prepared them. Just use a large kettle or sauce pan. Fill it with water add the Beans, add Sea Salt and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (cover), and heat on high until a boil. Then turn the heat to medium and cook until tender. A really delicious mess of Green Beans! Canned Green Beans are great but nothing beats the fresh Green Beans! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
