Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and we had a high of 62 degrees! Not bad for December 2nd! I took advantage of this weather and I got the cart out of the shed. Rode around the neighborhood for a bit. Then I got the yard tools out. I then swept and cleaned off the deck and driveway and raked the front yard. For dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Meijer Meat Counter. 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 I preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand for 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 for 5 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 the Pork!

 

I love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. My favorite is the Golden Hominy.

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

For Breakfast I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another nice day out there. 86 degrees and sunny, low humidity. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. I picked another 10 Roma Tomatoes and 5 Bell Peppers this morning. The plants have really produced this year! Later raked the yard and sprayed for weeds. I have to get that tree in our front yard cut down, all I do is rake leaves year around! Hopefully soon! For Dinner tonight I prepared Boneless Pork Ribeyes w/ Diced Potatoes, Mini Sweet Ears of Corn, and Baked French Bread.

 

I bought another of the AdapTable Pork Products at my last visit to Meijer. This on is the Chophouse Seasoned Boneless Pork Ribeye, Seasoned with the Chophouse – Garlic, Onion and Bell Pepper. I’m so happy that Meijer started carrying the AdapTable Products!

 

 

I’ll be preparing them on the stove in a Cast Ron Skillet. To prepare them I heated one tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium-high. Cooked the Chops in a covered skillet for 8-9 minutes per side until product reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer. Removed them from heat, and let them rest for 3 minutes. And serve!

 

 

These were as just as Delicious as the other ones we tried! Seasoned just right and the Chops came out moist and juicy! You have to give the AdapTable Products a try!

 

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Seasoned Diced Potatoes. Just love using all the Simply Potatoes Products, always easy to prepare, fresh and delicious Potato Dishes. These come seasoned with Seasoning, I added some Sea Salt.

 

For another side dish I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea and a 1/2 a Cake Donut for Breakfast. Mostly sunny and 87 degrees out today. I completed moving everything out of the spare room but a chair, computer and computer desk, and T.V. out of the room. Then did some yard work and I also cleaned the 3 portable fans of all dust on them and inside of them. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I had a pack of Pork Chops in a package in the freezer. Put the bag in the fridge to thaw overnight. To 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!

 

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Ross, Ohio it has the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Green Beans Health Benefits………….
You should learn to love green beans with all of your heart – their powerful combination of fiber, folate, and the minerals magnesium and potassium make green beans a super food for cardiovascular health.

Today’s Menu: Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Butternut Squash and Baked Roasted Garlic Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 83 degrees and cloudy out today, but no rain! I was off to Meijer after my Tea. I needed a couple of more boxes for moving some stuff out of the room that’s going to have new flooring in it. Amazing how much you gather after time! Then later I went around to gather donations to help out the family who lost family members in the fire here the other day. All the neighbors have really stepped up to help the other family members. For Dinner tonight it’s Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Butternut Squash and Baked Roasted Garlic Bread.

 

While at Meijer I picked up a new product, AdapTable Meals – Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Chops, Seasoned With: Garlic, Onion, Tomato and Olive Oil. First time that I seen these. They looked Delicious and I was looking for something for Dinner, and I found it! I’ll be preparing them by Skillet.

 

To prepare them I heat one tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil in a skillet on medium-high. I cooked the chops in a covered skillet for 2 1/2 minutes per side until product reaches 145°F on a my meat thermometer. Removed from the heat, let them rest for 3 minutes. These came out Delicious! Very well seasoned, tender and moist. I’ll purchase more of their products!

 

 

 

For 1 side I prepared a package of Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 total minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I could make a meal out of just Mashed Potatoes.

 

 

Then for a 2nd side I repaired some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious 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, Walnut Pieces, 1 tablespoon 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! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also made myself a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We have a hot and steamy one out there today! 96 degrees and humid, and the Cicadas are out in full force! Right after Breakfast I got what yard work needed done before the heat and humidity. My Tomato and Pepper Plants are just full, they love this weather. Later on I took my car and then Mom’s car through the Car Wash. That was about it, too hot and humid to do a lot outside. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

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.

From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 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 the Pork!

 

I love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Mixed Chili Beans

 

To start my morning off I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in our weather today! High of 52 degrees with a wind chill that kept it in the 40’s all day. Took it slow today my back was giving me problems today. Spent most of the day just lying down with a heating pad. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Mixed Chili Beans, and Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. Mom loves this trio for Dinner!

 

I had the Chops in the freezer and laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. 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 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 pork to the pan; cook for 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, an easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 2 small packages of Diced Butternut Squash at Meijer. 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, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 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! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these several times now and really like them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! I also baked a loaf of Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello Cup.
