Today’s Menu: BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast on this Saturday Morning I prepared a Cheese Omlet. I made it using Egg Beaters and a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausae Links and toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. And as always I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! Partly Cloudy and 87 degrees, and a higher humidity.

 

 

 

 

After Breakfast I took my car up and washed, much needed! Then to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Did some laundry and house cleaning. Later on went out and trimmed some of vines along the driveway. For Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

 

So for Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries. Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, this is so tender and incredibly flavorful. It comes already cooked and seasoned, so just heat and serve! Seasoned with, Organic Apple Cider, Organic Lime Juice, Onion Powder, Cumin, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Chili Powder, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Oregano, Cayenne Pepper.

 

 

 

 


Delicious Pulled Buffalo that you just heat and serve. I used a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Added the Buffalo and heated it on medium low until heated through. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. What a sandwich, just incredible flavor! The Wild Idea Buffalo Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast is so flavorful and tender. It just has such a deep and rich flavor to it.

 

 

 


For my Fries I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pork Shoulder Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 


Really tired and stressed today. Dad is at a local assisted living center for 5 days and he’s taken a turn for the worse and now we are scrambling to find a permanent place for him to stay. There’s just no way we can handle him here at the house. I’m in a wheelchair and Mom is 90 and we are not able to properly care for all his needs now. We are heart-broken and just nothing we can do. I had a Roast in the fridge that I’ll be fixing for me and Mom tonight.

 

 

 

Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast and i thought I should get one. I figured the Roast would come in handy for a quick Sandwich when you’re on the run. I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger the day before. The Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as like I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender. And as always a special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier! Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

 


Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce.I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches the next few days.

 

 

 

To go with our Sandwiches I baked some of my favorite Fries – Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather out there. 24 degrees, snow flurries, and windy, which makes it feel a lot colder out there! Had a high of 40 degrees but it sure felt colder. Had a good nights sleep last night, no Phantom Pains! Did some house cleaning and that was about it. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Comfort Food tonight, Good Ole Beans and Weenies!

 

 

Been a while since I’ve prepared Sausage and Beans. So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 

I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

 

 

Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Applegate No Sugar Added Uncured Bacon, actually I fried 5 slices. Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. First time I’ve tried the Applegate Bacon. I normaly use Turkey or Chicken Bacon but this looked like an excellent Bacon. It fried up perfect and very good flavor to it. Plus it’s only 60 calories for 2 slices. As I said it fried up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

 


I love dishes that you can set and let them simmer, to me it seems to give food a much richer and deeper flavor. After a couple of hours I added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven and 1 skillet to clean. Also reheated the leftover Bakehouse Multigrain Bread. For Dessert later a So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice Cream Sandwich.

Crock Pot – Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Cut Italian Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot – Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I wanted to go to Walmart, so when going there the earlier the better. If you don’t go early and you rely on the mobility electric carts you won’t get one or it will not be charged up. They have very few. Our Church is helping some low-income families and I purchased some plate settings, cutlery trays with the cutlery, dish towels, pot holders, and 3 piece skillet sets. I love helping others if I’m able to! Another reason I went early was I wanted to beat the rains moving in for the afternoon. For Dinner tonight Crock Pot – Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Cut Italian Green Beans

 


I purchased the Pork Loin Roast from Kroger yesterday and had it in the fridge. This morning got it out of the fridge and Seasoned it with Morton’s Lite Salt and Fat Boy All Natural BBQ Steak Rub. Rubbed the Seasoning on all sides of the Roast and let it sit for 10 minutes.

 

 

 

 


As the Roast sat I got the Crock Pot ready. I lined the Crock Pot with a Crock Pot Liner. Then sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and then added a 1/3 of a cup of Water. I then turned the Crock Pot on low to heat up. After 10 minutes I added the Roast to the Crock Pot. That’s when I added the Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. I added about a 1/2 bottle of it across the top of the Roast. Cover and cooked on low for 7 hours. Always check the temperature of the roast before removing. An instant-read thermometer should register at least 145 F. If overcooked, the pork can become dry and could be difficult to slice or shred.

 

At the end of 7 hours the Roast was ready. Just by opening the lid I could tell right away this was going to be a good one! Removed it from the Crock Pot and it was already falling apart, very good sign. I started shredding it and it was just falling apart. The Roast was so tender and flavorful! This turned out to be the best Roast I think I have ever prepared. Mom agreed, she loved it! I served it on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Buns. We topped it with a bit more BBQ Sauce. One DELICIOUS Sandwich!

 

 


I made a couple of sides Roasted Butternut Squash and Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. For the Butternut Squash; I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 


To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash.

 

 

 


Next I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans of any kind every day and never get tired of having them. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jack Daniel’s® Honey Smokehouse™

Known for its attention to detail and unrelenting quality, Jack Daniel’s® slow cooks its Honey Smokehouse™ Barbecue Sauce using a blend of real honey and spices to ensure the perfect balance of sweet smokey flavor for all your grilling and baking occasions.

Today’s Menu: Bacon Double Cheddar Chicken Sandwich w/ Tater Tots

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of Cherrio’s along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed to the local Kroger up the road. Needed a few things for tonight’s Dinner. Usually when I go early to Kroger there’s hardly anyone there. But not today, I forgot it was Valentine’s Day! I was luck to find a handicap parking space, someone happened to be pulling out and they left their electric cart ou also. Kroger made a fortune on Cars, Flowers, and Candy sales! I got what I needed and headed back home. I’m glad I did go early though as it started pouring the rain as I got back home. Not much else going on today. I did put a Pork Loin Roast in the Crock Pot and let it cook on low for 7 hours for tomorrow’s Dinner. For my Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon Double Cheddar Chicken Sandwich w/ Tater Tots.

 

I purchased a package of Tyson Thin Cut Boneless Chicken Breasts at Kroger. I’ll also need the following to make the Dish; al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, Boar’s Head Deli Sliced Yellow Cheddar and White Cheddar Cheese, Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, Lettuce, and Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns.

 

 

 

 

I first fried the al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. This Bacon fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

 

Next I fried the Thin Cut Chicken Breasts. I’m using the Tyson Thin Cut Boneless Chicken Breasts. I got a large skillet that I sprayed with pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I then heated the skillet on medium heat. I seasoned the Chicken with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Pepper. Then rolled the Chicken in seasoned Flour. I had seasoned the Flour with Ground Smoked Paprika. With the skillet heated I added the Chicken. I fried it 2 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes and flipped it back again. Cooked it until the Chicken had an internal temperature of 165°. Cooked it a total of 15 minutes. With about 1 minute or so of cooking time left I topped the Chicken Breasts with a slice of Yellow and slice of White Cheddar Cheese. The Chicken came out perfect. Nice browning on the outside moist and juicy inside, and the Cheese melted beautifully!

 

As my Chicken was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Tater Tots.I used Ore Ida Golden Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup.

 

 

 

 

 


As the Tater Tots were finishing up I made my Sandwich. I got the Mini Sub Buns and took the bottom half and put Lettuce down, added the Chicken Breast, topped that with the Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce, the Bacon, and the top half of the Sub Bun. Quite a sandwich! I’ll have to start having this more often! With the Tater Tots it came out one delicious Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

 

 

 

Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese

Crafted in the Green Mountain state with whole milk sourced from regional family dairy farms, this classic cheese has a mild flavor and creamy texture. Vermont Cheddar skewered with seedless grapes and Boar’s Head Ovengold Turkey makes an elegant kabob-style appetizer.

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a another of the delicious SayersBrook Bison Ranch Filet Mignon! I love these they’re so tender and fry up so easy. So I had Steak and Egg. I had Bison Filet Mignon in the freezer, I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I fried it like last time. 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. And like last time it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast Combo! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 


We had snow showers on and off all night, none of it stuck to the ground though. Another cool day out, a high of 33 degrees and sunny out. After I had Breakfast I prepared Breakfast for Mom and Dad. I prepared Scrambled Eggs, sausage Patties, Buttery Grits, Toast, and made a pot of Coffee. Gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then cleaned the house, dusted and vacuumed. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Comfort Food tonight!

 

 

I’ve been wanting some more of the Sausage and Beans for a while now. So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

Today’s Menu: Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Love this Breakfast! It’s bitter cold this morning! It’s 4 degrees and the wind makes it feel like minus 8 degrees.Plus the high was only 18 degrees. Bitter Cold! It looks as though this weather is going to stick around for at least a week so we might as well adjust to it. Around noon I ventured out and went to the local Kroger up the road from us. Mom needed a few things so I went for her. That was it for being outside today! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

While at Kroger earlier today I purchased a Simple Truth Rotisserie Chicken at the Deli. I love these Birds, there is so much meat on them and seasoned just right. So anyway I pulled all the Chicken Meat from it and cut off the Chicken Legs and Wings for Mom and Dad.

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Sandwich I took some of the Pulled Chicken and heated it up in a skillet on medium high heat. Next I grabbed a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and the bottle of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. Piled my Chicken on the Bun and topped it with the BBQ Sauce. Easily made and delicious! The Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce is perfect with Chicken. Just gives it an incredible flavor!

 

 

 

To go with my Sandwich I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rotisserie Chicken
Rotisserie chicken is a chicken dish that is cooked on a rotisserie, using direct heat in which the chicken is placed next to the heat source. Electric- or gas-powered heating elements may be used, which use adjustable infrared heat. These types of rotisseries have proven quite functional for cooking rotisserie-style chicken.
Leftover rotisserie chicken may be used in a variety of dishes, such as soup, chicken salad and sandwiches. (Wiki)

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

 

 

To start the morning off I fried up some Queen City Sausage Goetta Patties. They come fresh packaged and 12 Patties to the package. I had never had these before so I thought I would give them a try. Goetta is tough to keep in a patty form if you’re making them from fresh. But these come already cut into Patties, much easier to fry up. They fried up perfect and seasoned just right. I froze up the unused Patties. To go with the Goetta Patties I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to grab the morning paper and it was 47 degrees. It was mostly sunny and a high of 67 degrees, clouds moved in late. Cool weather for this time of year around here. Got the cart out of the shed and caught up on some yard work most of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger the other day and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as like I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender. And as always a special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier! Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

 

Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. This is a Sandwich! I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch the next few days.

 

 

 

A favorite I always pick up at Meijer are the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. 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 item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Carrots, and they taste just as fresh. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Slow Cooked Yukon Gold Potatoes and Carrots

 

 

For Breakfast I had the Smithfield Anytime Favorites Sliced Ham again. This made such a delicious Breakfast Sandwich yesterday I couldn’t wait to have it again! To prepare it just heat up the Ham for 1 minute in a skillet and it’s ready! I then toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped the Ham with a slice of Sargento Reduced Calorie Swiss Cheese and served it on the Muffin. Made a delicious Breakfast sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Hot and muggy with a passing shower outside today, as it was yesterday. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items I needed and back home. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out of the shed and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then got the clippers out and trimmed back the vines along the driveway. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Slow Cooked Yukon Gold Potatoes and Carrots.

 

I got the Crock Pot out and lined it with a Plastic Liner and then sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray. Added 3/4 cup of Water to the Pot and turned it on high to warm up. I began by slicing up my Yukon Gold Gourmet Potatoes and Whole Carrots. Put them into a large bowl and seasoned them with Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Italian Herb Seasoning, and McCormick Grinder. Tossed them in the bowl making sure they were well seasoned on all sides. I then added them to a large Pot of boiling Water and cooked them for about 12 minutes. I then added them to the Crock Pot and closed the lid. Potatoes and Carrots both take a while to get tender so that’s why I first boiled them for 12 minutes.

 

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger the other day and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as I am today. I removed the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker on top of the Potatoes and Carrots. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until everything was fork tender. A special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier!

 

Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. Love this Sandwich! I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch the next few days. The added Potatoes and Carrots worked great, giving it added flavor. Both came out fork tender and delicious! Later tonight I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my day off I had a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another rainy day outside again. We have several areas that had flooding from yesterday’s rains. So more on top of that, 85 degrees and muggy. So I stayed in and cleaned the house today. Started by getting a couple of loads of laundry started. Then dusted and vacuumed. Next into the kitchen and laundry room. Cleaned the oven, self-cleaning oven. Then dusted and cleaned around the washer and dryer. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Baked Fries.

To go with the Pulled Pork Sandwiches I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
