Today’s Menu: Baked Pork Chops w/Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green BeansBBQ Baked Chops 004

 

 

 
Plenty of sunshine all day today, but had a light cool breeze and in the 40’s. They say it will hit close to 70 degrees tomorrow and sunny! Hope they’re right for tomorrow is Holiday here in the Cincinnati area, it’s Opening Day! The Red’s first game of the year and a positive sign Spring is here. Pulled my 4 wheel mobility cart out of the shed and charged it up and cleaned it up a bit. Went to Kroger for Mom and picked up a few things for her and home. For dinner tonight it’s a Baked Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

 

 

 

BBQ Baked Chops 001

Had this Chop froze so I laid it out overnight in the fridge to thaw. It’s one of Pork Chops I had bought at Costco a while back. Costco has some of the finest meats around and the Pork Chops are right there with some of the best! I started by marinating them in J B’s Fat Boy’s Haugwash Barbcue Sauce. Just the name Fat Boy’s Haugwash makes my mouth water! If you’ve never tried any of their Rubs or Sauces you got to give them a try! The best I’ve ever had, bar none. Wish it was a little lower in calories and carbs but it’s worth cutting back on other things to fit this in the dinner. Anyway I marinated the Chops in the Sauce and refrigerated it for 4 hours. I removed the chops from the fridge and shook off any excess of the sauce and then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried the Chops in a Cast Iron Skillet, browning both sides then baked the Chops at 400 degrees for 20 minutes flipping the Chops over after 10 minutes, internal temperature was at 150 degrees. They came out moist, tender, and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

 
For one side dish 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 heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread and an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato

 

 

 

 

 

Panko Cod Baked Potato 006

 

Not a bad day out today. Sunny and in the 50’s, plus a streak of sunny and warmer days coming up! It’s about time, it seems it’s been an awful long and cold winter. I’m feeling better today than I have and my Dad is getting a little stronger in rehab. They started him with therapy twice a day. It was Fish tonight for dinner. I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Potato.

 

 

 

 
To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillets off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with Sea Salt and Pepper. Combined the flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dip the floured fillet into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Place fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heat canola oil in a skillet and place the fillets in and saute 3 minutes each side, or until fillets are heated through and Panko Crust has browned. Served the fillet on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

 

Panko Cod Baked Potato 001
To go with my Cod Sandwich I baked a Baked Potato. Seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea salt and Black Peppercorn and topped with I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo T-Bone Steak w/ Baked Potato and Kicked Up Chili Beans

 

 

 

Buffalo T Bone Steak 008

 

 Well our warm-up has started, about time! It was sunny with a high of around 45, that’s plus 45 not minus 45! It put a dent in all the snow and ice we have built up around here. They say 60 by Thursday but a chance for severe weather with it, heavy rains and high winds with a chance of tornadoes. Hopefully nothing too bad. For dinner tonight I prepared a Wild Idea Buffalo – Buffalo T-Bone Steak w/ Baked Potato and Kicked Up Chili Beans.

 

 
This is the last of the two Wild Idea Buffalo T – Bone Steaks I had in the freezer. They came in the Wild Idea Buffalo Holiday Package I had purchased back in December. I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it, in a Cast Iron Grill Pan, in Canola Oil about 9 minutes or so, 5 minutes on one side and 4 1/2 on the other. Had to cook it a bit longer than normal, a very thick Steak. It came out a perfect medium rare and just bursting with incredible flavor! As any Wild Idea Buffalo cut, just a perfect piece of meat with incredible flavor! Topped it with a side of Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms and a spoonful of Daisy Reduced Sour Cream.

Buffalo T Bone Steak 003

 

For one side I had a Baked Potato that I topped with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For my other side I prepared a Bean favorite of mine, Kicked Up Chili Beans. For the Beans I used Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans and added Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce, Crumbled Turkey Bacon Bits, Splenda Brown Sugar, and a few dashes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I left the recipe at the end of the post. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Bone in Ribeye Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Green Beans w/ Potatoes

 

Bone In Buffalo Rib Eye 003

 
Another below zero morning to start the day, minus 7. The day didn’t warm up any at all, it may have hit the teens but the wind chill kept it around zero. Went to the store early this morning since I probably won’t be able to do it over the weekend due to more snow coming. After that I came home and I wanted to get this last snowfall off the driveway and salted before the next one comes in later tonight. Even in a wheelchair shoveling snow is a workout, and a pain the butt! Done for the day until dinner. For dinner I prepared a Wild Idea Buffalo Bone in Ribeye Steak w/ Sauteed Mushrooms and Green Beans w/ Potatoes.

 

 

Bone In Buffalo Rib Eye 004
This was my last Bone in Buffalo Ribeye Steak (Cowboy Steak). I had ordered a Wild Idea Holiday Package of Buffalo, which included 2 – T-Bone Buffalo Steaks, 2 – 16 oz. Bone-In Ribeye Steaks, 2 Packs of 1/4 lb. Buffalo Burger Patties, and a 1 lb. Package of Buffalo Brats. What a beautiful cut of meat the Ribeye are! It’s about 1 1/2″ thick with just enough of marbling to make it perfect. To prepare it I rubbed it with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I pan fried it using a Cast Iron Skillet that I preheated on medium heat. When it was ready I placed the Ribeye in the pan and on the first side fried it about 4 1/2 minutes then flipping it to the other side for another 4 1/2 minutes. I then removed it from the pan and let it set covered with foil for 7 minutes. I had it an internal temperature of 140 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect. So moist and tender and with that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. Way to big for one meal as the other one was, I’ll have the leftover for breakfast or lunch tomorrow. Thank you Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

 
For one side I had some Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms. Sateed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned with Sea Salt, Dried Rosemary, Dried Thyme, Roasted Ground Cumin, and a 1/2 Pat of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I also heated a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans with Potatoes. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. Great sides to go with one mouth-watering Bone in Buffalo Ribeye Steak. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato, Green Beans and Whole Grain BreadBison sirloin great range 001

 

 

As I went to the bank and running a couple of errands I noticed how good the Corn crops are looking this year. This time last year they looked terrible from lack of any rain. This year we’ve had plenty of rain and the Corn has really flourished, good news for our farmers. For dinner I prepared a Buffalo Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato, Green Beans and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

I had a Great Range Bison Sirloin Steak froze that I wanted to use. The grill is still on the outs so I pan fried the Bison. I fried it in Canola Oil on medium heat about 4 minutes per side, seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I used Great Range Bison Sirloin, my second favorite Bison next to Wild Idea Buffalo. It came out medium rare and delicious! A little char on the outside and moist and pink in the center, Love that Bison! Topped it with Sauteed Baby Bella Mushrooms.

 
Along with Buffalo Sirloin and Mushrooms I prepared a Baked Potato that I seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had a side of some leftover Green Beans my Mom I prepared yesterday along with a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Terres Major Filet w/ Teriyaki Marinated Mushrooms, Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Baked Garlic Knot Rolls

 

 

Spent the afternoon at the rehab center visiting my Dad. He goes in for a minor surgery Tuesday morning and then hopefully about TerresMajor Filet 009another week in rehab and he’ll be home again. For dinner today I had a Grilled Buffalo Terres Major Filet w/ Teriyaki Marinated Mushrooms, Mashed Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Baked Garlic Knot Rolls.

 

 

I had ordered some Wild Idea Ground Buffalo, Buffalo top Sirloin Steaks, and a couple Buffalo 8 oz. Terres Major Filets. I had never tried the Terres Major cut but was told it was one of the most tender cuts of meat. I had wanting to try it but it was always sold out on Wild Idea Buffalo web site up until last week when I placed my order, and I see now it’s sold out again! That’s got to be a good sign for some good Buffalo Steak. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and I then fired up the outdoor grill and grilled it. It wasn’t a real thick cut so I had to a close eye on it, so not to let it burn. Buffalo or Bison cooks very quickly because it’s so lean. I grilled it about 3 1/2 minutes per side and then let it sit for 5 minutes before slicing it. It came out a perfect juicy medium rare. I now know why it’s always sold out! As all the Wild Idea Buffalo cuts it had an incredible flavor, a wild and almost sweet flavor. Tender, so tender that it almost shredded when I sliced it! Sorry Beef you’re not a close second to Buffalo!

 

 

To go with that juicy steak I had purchased some Teriyaki Marinated Mushrooms from Kroger Deli yesterday. Also I made a side of the Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, heated up some Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas, and baked a couple of rolls of Walmart Bakery Savory Garlic Knot Rolls. For dessert/snack later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Smoked Cheddar Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

It was only 32 degrees this morning when I first got up but it warmed up real quick. Turned out to be a beautiful sunny Spring Day,003 (Earth Day), and it warmed up to about 68 degrees! I was going to grill out but it looks as though I’m going to have to make some repairs on the grill or perhaps buy a new one as it wouldn’t light. So dinner was prepared indoors and I prepared; Smoked Cheddar Bison Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used my favorite Buffalo Meat, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/4 lb. Bison Pattie. The last time I placed an order I ordered 3 packages of them, plenty in stock for the early grilling season! I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I skillet fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bun topped with a slice of Bordens Smoked Cheddar. The taste of Buffalo is so much better than Beef, especially Wild Idea Buffalo. It’s all on how their raised which makes them taste better than most Buffalo meat. I left a link at the bottom of the post to give you some background on Wild Idea Buffalo.

 

For a side I got the Potato Fry Cutter out and cut some fresh Golden Potato Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Garlic Powder, and just a touch of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Baked them on 425 degrees until done. Served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Also had an ice-cold Peach Diet Snapple. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo

 

100% Grass Fed & Free Roaming
Wild Idea bison graze much like their ancestors, eating nothing but the grass beneath their feet. The nutrient dense native grasses they eat, produce a delicious, healthy red meat, rich in omega 3s. Unlike most buffalo, ours are NEVER feedlot confined or corn finished. Our bison are 100% Grass-Fed and Free Roaming, 100% Antibiotic and Hormone Free, 100% Humanely Harvested. Always!

 

Restore & Reduce
Our food system turns native prairies into grain fields for feedlot animals—not people. It turns a naturally bio-diverse landscape into a monoculture, destroying thousands of species in the process. Our buffalo help restore the land they graze to greater biodiversity. There are no fossil fuels used to plant and fertilize crops, and no trucks moving feed and animals to feedlots.

 

Decadently Delicious
The incredible flavor of Wild Idea Buffalo’s meat is the result of lives more naturally lived. Its clean, rich, slightly sweet taste has subtle notes of grass, sage and we swear—sunshine. Our animals are given respect, dignity and love. They lived and died free so you can enjoy with guiltless pleasure.

 

 
Wild Idea Buffalo meat is:

*Lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than chicken or fish.
*40% more protein than beef.
*Nutrient-dense, flavor rich, outrageously lean, and high in antioxidant Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E.
*100% native grass fed – delivering 3.5x more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed bison.
*Red Meat That’s Good for You!
