Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

To start my morning off I made my favorite Breakfast. I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl 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. I’m ready to start my day! Our beautiful streak of weather continues. A bit warmer out today, 75 degrees and sunny! I got my cart out and continued with some yard work this afternoon. I borrowed the neighbors power sprayer and power washed the deck and driveway. Then swept out the shed and straightened it up. Later on just rode around the neighborhood on my cart. I purchased a couple of packages of 1/2 Rack of Pork Loin Back Ribs from Meijer Wednesday and having them for Dinner tonight. Mom and Dad love Ribs, as do I! Tonight its Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Texas Toast (Lite).

 

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 you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating!

 

 

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 thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

For a 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 Lite 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 Dr. Pepper 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.

Baby back ribs served with fries and cornbread….

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Baked Beans

 

 


For Breakfast on this Saturday Morning I toasted a Healthy Life English Muffin and topped it with a Poached Egg. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 78 degrees outside, had some more rain late in the day. I had bought a couple of Tomato Plants at Meijer, and they were in sad shape. But I bought them anyway, so I repotted them today. All caught up on cleaning so I had the cart out most of the day. For Dinner tonight Mom’s Favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Baked Beans.

 


Mom’s favorite meal is my Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs and she’s been wanting some Ribs. So “What Mom wants Mom gets”. So Ribs it is for dinner tonight. She I picked up a package at Kroger yesterday, they always have top quality Pork. And these were some Pork Back Ribs, 4 1/2 lbs. worth! Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned them with JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered the Ribs 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.

I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

For one side I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better and easier to make!

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared a can of Bush’s Grillin’ Beans – Bourbon and Brown Sugar. Love these Beans, fantastic smokey flavor. Just simmer in a saucepan and serve. I had these sometime back and fell in love with the flavor and taste prepare the; just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 


BUSH’S® BOURBON AND BROWN SUGAR GRILLIN’ BEANS®
When you’re grilling your favorite meats, you want a side that can hold its own—like the bold taste of BUSH’S® Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans®. We slow-cook plump navy beans in a robust sauce generously seasoned with brown sugar, molasses, a bold blend of spices and a touch of natural bourbon flavor for a side dish that’s decidedly different.

Today’s Menu: Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Whole Baby Carrots and Whole White Potatoes

 

 

 

Ham, Diced Potato, Egg, Hash 002
For Breakfast I had one of my favorites, Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. Just love this skillet meal!

Another cool morning to start the day, about 42 degrees this morning. Beautiful day out, sunny and a high in the mid 60’s, love these beautiful Autumn Days! Did a few things in the house and did a load of laundry. Outside got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway. Had everything done by Lunch. Then after Lunch got the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood. Noticed that there’s quite a few trees around the neighborhood that are already turning colors. Afterwords a day of NFL Football. For Dinner tonight it’s a Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Whole Baby Carrots and Whole White Potatoes.

Tried another one of the Swift Premium Products, Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Whiskey Black Pepper Boneless Pork Loin Fillet. i love using these Swift Premium Pork Products. So easy to prepare and all come out lean and moist with fantastic flavor! I’ve only found this at Kroger so far.

 

 

 

boneless-pork-loin-fillet-w-whole-baby-carrots-and-whole-white-p-004
To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the Pork Loin from package and place in an uncovered roasting pan that is sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. I then took some JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush and rubbed some over top of the Roast, for added flavor. Cook approximately 35 minutes or until internal temperature on a meat thermometer reached 145°F in the thickest part of the Roast. Remove it from oven and let rest 3 minutes before slicing and serving. And as the other Swift Premium Products, one delicious Roast! The Roast was very moist and tender. The JB’s BBQ Sauce was just right for the added flavor.

 

Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 011

 

For 1 side I heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good.

 

 

 

 

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 002
Then for another side dish I heated up a can of Kroger Whole New Potatoes. Just heat and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a slice of Baked Pillsbury French Bread that was leftover from last nights Dinner.Excellent Sunday Dinner! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

Crispy Chicken Strips w Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green 002
I started my day off by making a Breakfast sandwich using; Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, 2 slices of fried Boar’s Head Black Forest Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. And a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, nice start to the day! Beautiful Spring day out there today! Started off cold, in the 30’s, but it was sunny and warmed up to around 60 degrees. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned up around the house outside. After that got the cart out for a while, not long as the wind was bit cool still. Nice day out though. For dinner tonight its Crispy Chicken Strips w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

Perdue Crispy Chicken Strips
To prepare Chicken Strips I preheated the oven to 425°F . Sprayed a baking sheet with cooking spray. Placed frozen strips in single layer on the baking sheet. Baked for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F – 160°F. Turn Strips halfway through heating time.They come out golden brown and delicious! I really enjoy these.

Then for my sides it was leftovers, from earlier in the week. I reheated the Idahoan Au Gratin Potatoes Homestyle Casserole. Idahoan Potato Products has many Potato products and all very easy to prepared and reheated and all are delicious Potato dishes. Then I also reheated some Allens Cut Italian Beans, again leftover from a previous dinner. I’ll take Chicken, Potatoes, and Beans anytime for dinner! For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Gr 006
Had a light Breakfast to start the day. I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I ran Mom to Kroger and on the way home had to stop by the bank and update our credit cards and change the passwords. Back home gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then did some cleaning of the house. This morning I put our dinner in the Crock Pot. Tonight it’s Mom’s favorite Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs Seasoning

 

Mom’s favorite meal is my Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs and she’s been wanting some Ribs. So what Mom wants Mom gets! So Ribs it is for dinner tonight. So I picked up a package at Kroger yesterday, they always have top quality Pork. And these were some Pork Back Ribs, 4 1/2 lbs. worth! Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned them with Sea Salt and Black Pepper and then covered the Ribs 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. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low, for about 8 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, intoxicating! After 8 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For all of 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. I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

Idahoan Au Graten Potatoes 002
For side dishes I prepared some Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post. Then I heated up a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. For dessert a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Country Style Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

 

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 007
After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. As I was leaving McDonald’s I was coming to a red light and started slowing down and my brake line busted. I wasn’t going very fast so it was easy to stop, and I was close to home. Called a tow truck when I got home and had it towed to the mechanic I always use. My car has 148,000 miles on it and I’m replacing a few things on now and then but still cheaper than a car payment. Just hope my run of car problems don’t continue! Anyway for dinner tonight it’s all comfort food! I prepared BBQ Country Style Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread.

 

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 001
While in Kroger yesterday I noticed they had Country Style Pork Ribs on sale so I picked a package up. So tonight I’m preparing BBQ Country Style Ribs. A simple and easy recipe to prepare. I’ll need: 1 package Country Style Pork Ribs, Minced Garlic, Sea Salt, JB”s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce, and JB’s Fat Boy Premium All Purpose Rub.

Then to prepare them I preheated the oven to 250 degrees F. In a shallow baking pan I placed the ribs in a single layer; salted and applied the Rub. Spread the garlic on the ribs. Bake in a preheated oven for 2 hours – the ribs should be tender. Drained the grease and liquid. Poured the BBQ sauce over the ribs. Returned to oven and bake one more hour at 200 to 250 degrees F. And let’s eat! Fantastic BBQ flavor and the ribs were so moist and tender! We have a good “Keeper Recipe” for Country Style Ribs!

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

Then I opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned in the Summer of 2013. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread, Mom’s favorite. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Frozen Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
