Peach Salad with Tomatoes and Raspberry Vinaigrette
Here’s a salad to toss together during the dog days of summer, when peaches and tomatoes are both at their best. Use a combination of lettuces that have different textures and flavors–a tender, more buttery variety with something more substantial and peppery, for instance…………………

Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken
Chicken turns this Greek-inspired salad into a substantial main course. Feel free to substitute other chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli or bell peppers, for the tomatoes or cucumber. Use leftover chicken, store-roasted chicken or quickly poach a couple boneless, skinless chicken breasts while you prepare the rest of the salad. Serve with pita bread and hummus…………………………..

Chopped Salad with Cornbread Croutons
At Handsome Hog, his restaurant in St. Paul, Minnesota, Justin Sutherland offers this chopped salad topped with any barbecued meat on the menu. The chef recommends brisket–it takes this already Southern-inspired salad a step further……………………..

Picking the right Peach and Storing Peaches…………………………..

You can tell if a peach is ripe or not by a gentle, yet firm squeeze (not hard enough to bruise it) with your fingers. If there’s a little bit of a give there, then it means that the fruit is almost ripe but not quite.

Look for firm peaches with a pleasant aroma. Avoid peaches with excessive shriveled skin as that is a sign of dehydration and may lead to an unpleasant texture. You can also give your peach a little sniff at the store to make sure it has a pleasant, peach-like aroma.
To store ripe peaches, first rinse and dry them completely. Then, put them in the refrigerator, where they’ll keep for 2-3 days. Alternatively, you can slice your peaches and coat them with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown before you refrigerate them.

Peach-Mango Salsa
Scoop this easy and healthy peach-mango salsa up with tortilla chips, serve it with grilled chicken, salmon or pork chops, or use it as a taco topper. It’s a versatile and vibrant addition to all sorts of meals………………………………

Green Tomato, Tomatillo and Lime Salsa Verde
Packed with tomatillo and tart lime flavor, this salsa is a great way to try out (or use up) any green tomatoes you have lying around. A versatile salsa, it’s perfect for dipping with tortillas or adding to a grilled fish taco. You might even want to try stirring it into sour cream for an enchilada sauce. For less of a spicy kick, omit the jalapeños……………………..

Roasted Three-Chile Salsa
This hot salsa recipe is typically made in a large molcajete (lava-rock mortar and pestle), but this recipe calls for a food processor or blender to make it easier. If you have a molcajete, feel free to use it instead. If you can’t find the bright orange manzano chiles, sold at Mexican grocery stores, double the amount of jalapeño (or for a hotter salsa, double the habanero)………………………..

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Skillet Diced 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 sprinkle of Sargento Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and humid outside. After Breakfast I went to Meijer, we needed a new garden hose. Back home and inside for most of the day, way too humid for me. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Peaches.

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then 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 the 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 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

For one side I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. An easy to prepare and delicious Potato dish from Idahoan. A breeze to make just mix the ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes and you have some delicious Scalloped Potatoes. Plus their only 140 calories and 19 net carbs.

 

For a side I prepared a bag of Mann’s Stringless Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I used a medium size skillet. I added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I emptied the bag of Snap Peas into the skillet. Stirred a few times and cooked them for 5 minutes. Ready to serve. Very good Snap Peas, nice and full!

 

I also had some Sliced Peaches to top everything off. They were Meijer Frozen Sliced Peaches, always delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Some Peachy hints………………………..

Peaches get sweeter and juicier as they ripen. Squeezing them will tell you what stage they’re at. Gently press or squeeze the shoulder and tip (where the stem was) – if it just starts to give, it’s ripe and ready to eat.

Then to ripen peaches quickly, store them in a brown paper bag, which will trap the ethylene gas that causes the fruit to ripen. To ripen the peaches even faster, put a banana or apple in the bag with them so there’s more ethylene gas being emitted.

Storing Peaches………………………..

Store peaches at room temperature shoulder (stem) side down, preferably in a single layer to avoid bruising. Line them up in the order of ripeness so you know which one to eat next. If the peaches ripen before you get to them, they can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple more days, but eat them before they start to get wrinkly, which is a sign that they’re starting to dry out. Some Peachy hints!
