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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 44 degrees and partly cloudy out there today. After my Tea I went to Walmart. Needed some Printing Ink and a few other things. On the way back I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Got the rake and leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck, driveway, and raked the front yard. Did a few other things around the house outside. For Dinner tonight one of my favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans!

 

I had a bought package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger and had them in the freezer. Laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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.

 

 

 

As the Potatoes were cooking I had also opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them on already cooking. I love these, 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 tonight I had a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Mini Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu – Leftovers: Turkey and Swiss Melt w/ Green Beans and Deviled Eggs

 

 

For Breakfast this Morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, heated 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another warm Winter Day out today. Partly Sunny and 63 degrees! Not too bad for this time of year. Spent most of the day helping Mom take down and store the Christmas Decorations. Later grabbed a broom and the leaf blower and swept the driveway off and the deck. For Dinner tonight its Leftovers: Turkey and Swiss Melt w/ Green Beans and Deviled Eggs.

 

 

I used the leftovers from Christmas Dinner for Dinner tonight. For the Turkey and Cheddar I had already sliced the Leftover Turkey and for the Cheese I used a slice of Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese. To prepare it I used a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium. Added my sliced Turkey, flipping it over several times. Then as it was finishing I added a slice of the Swiss and continued cooking for about 2 minutes. Served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. I’ve switched back to using Healthy Life Buns. We can no longer purchase or find Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Buns anywhere. The Healthy Life Buns are only 80 calories and 15 carbs per bun. Anyway, I love these leftovers it made one delicious Sandwich!

 

 


I also heated up the Leftover Green Beans. Mom had opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans. Just as delicious as the first time around! Then I had a couple of Deviled Eggs. Leftovers make one delicious Dinner! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of Cool Whip Light.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Roast Turkey………..

Its protein content makes turkey a healthy meat choice. A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention. Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system.

Turkey meat is loaded with vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Turkey is a source of iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. It’s a good source of B vitamins, including B12 which helps prevent the buildup of homocysteine, an amino acid that could potentially decrease cognitive function.

Happy Thanksgiving!

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 60 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items and stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I went to see a neighbor of ours that’s in the hospital. He had to Vein Surgery on his left leg. He seems to be doing good, he’ll be home Wednesday. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. 68 degrees and partly cloudy out today. The wind finally calmed a bit and I was able to get out and get some yard work done. Filled 2 yard bags full of leaves. And that was my afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and Green Beans

 

 

To start this Monday Morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam and my Morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers this morning, much needed, had some sun later in the day, high of 79 degrees. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Cleaned out the Microwave, the new one will be here tomorrow. We purchased it from Best Buy and they are delivering it, installing it, and taking the old one with them. We’ve really missed the Microwave the last few days. I didn’t think we used it as much as we do. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and Green Beans.

 

 

I ‘m not a huge fan of Whole Catfish Fillets, I prefer the Catfish Nuggets. But It’s really all the same, Catfish is Catfish. Mom prefers the Fillets, over the Nuggets, so that’s what we had! I purchased the Fillets from Meijer.

 

 

 

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron  Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor, I might have the Catfish Fillets more often! I love using Cast Iron Skillets!

 

 

 

So as the Fish was frying I prepared a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Mom loves this. But it’s too high in calories and carbs for me so I heated up some leftover Green Beans. I saved a lot calories and carbs by going with the Green Beans over the Mac and Cheese, plus I enjoy the Green Beans more than the Mac and Cheese. I also made Mom a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Grilled BBQ Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this Sunday Morning I prepared Turkey Sausage, Egg White Scrambled Eggs, Toast, and Tea. I picked up a package of the Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links while at Meijer. Meijer finally has started to have them in stock all the time now! Love these, so fresh and fry up perfect. Plus they are only 70 calories for 2 links! I also Scrambled some Egg Beaters Egg Whites, topped them with a sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. That’s a great Breakfast to start any day of the week! 85 degrees, humid, and rain and thunderstorms out today. I went and got Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s and afterward she went on to Church. For me I did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today. Watched TV then the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled BBQ Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

 

I purchased the Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops from Meijer yesterday. I wasn’t sure what I wanted and the Meat and Seafood manager asked me what I was looking for and I told him “Not sure but looking for something to grill”. He said stay right here and I’ll cut you something fresh. Then he brought out the Boneless Pork Top Loin Chops. They looked fantastic and I had what I was going to grill. Thank you Meijer Meat Department! I love Meijer, everything so fresh and the prices are some of the best!

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I seasoned them with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I went out and fired the the grill up next. I’ll be using Kraft Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce on the Chops. With the Chops Seasoned and the Grill fired up I started grilling the Chops. I grilled them for 3 minutes and then rotated them a 1/4 turn to get those beautiful grill marks and continued to cook them another 2 minutes. Turn the Chops over cooked them 2 minutes and rotated a 1/4 turn again. Continued to cook them for 2 minutes. With a minute of cooking time left I basted the Chops with the BBQ Sauce. Removed them from the grill and shut the grill down. The Chops were fantastic! Moist and tasted great!

 

 

 

 

As the Chops were being grilled I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Mashed Potatoes are perfect to go with any meal!

 

 

 

 

 

 

When having Mashed Potatoes you have to have Green Beans! I had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and got them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! For Dessert later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Cup of Oreo Vanilla ice Cream, love these little cups!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Chicken Sausage Patty Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin, heated up a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Patty, and topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Love these Breakfast Sandwiches! Also I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a couple of items. Then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Did some things around the house, inside and outside. For Dinner tonight Leftovers; I reheated the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans.

That Pork Tenderloin was so delicious last night I wasn’t about to let it go to waste! So I reheated everything and I had Dinner! I’ve the original post from last night for description, instructions, ans pictures. Till tomorrow!

 

I purchased the 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!

 

I prepared a Potato Recipe that I had not had in a while, Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes. Got the idea from several similar recipes.

I also cooked some more fresh Green Beans. Mom went Jungle Jim’s International Market and bought them. I love beans, but they are even better when fresh. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn. I had an Ice- Water to drink.
