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 some Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside cloudy, windy and 38 degrees. Very windy and made it feel like 30 degrees! I spent this last day of 2019 cleaning closets. Cleaned my bedroom and the pantry. I just want to wish you each and everyone a Happy and Healthy 2020! So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a package of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops, 3 Chops, and had them in the freezer. I grabbed 1 of the Chops from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Then to prepare my Chop 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 pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150°, 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 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 yesterday and I’m having a slice of that topped with Butter. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream. See everyone next year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, Fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy, humid, and 77 degrees out today. Had the 2nd coat of Stain and Sealent go on the outside ramp leading to the Kitchen. Everything is now done outside except for the back yard flower bed. So with ramp drying most of the afternoon I had to stay inside until the evening. Which was fine since the Pollen and Mold count was high. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

 

I had bought a package of 3 Pork Tenderloin Center Cut Pork Chops at Meijer yesterday. I kept 2 of them out for Dinner tonight and froze the other one for later. So 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. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have 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 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 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. Because of the size of them there is some leftover for Breakfast!

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a few times now and really love 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! Being fairly new they are sort of hard to find. The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Sprite Zero to drink.

TWO BEANS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

MIXED CHILI BEANS
For the first time ever, we’ve combined two chili favorites—kidney beans and pinto beans—to create BUSH’S® Mixed Chili Beans. They’re slow-simmered to perfection in a mild sauce flavored with garlic, onion, and spices. They’re a great addition that’ll bring a little variety and a lot of flavor to your next batch of chili.
There’s a lot to love about BUSH’S® Mixed Chili Beans—like the 7g of protein and fiber in every serving. And with no cholesterol or trans fat, there’s goodness in every bite!

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chops w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Golden Hominy

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. I heated an al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty. Then toasted a Thomas 100 Calorie Multi Grain English Muffin and used a 1/2 of slice Boar’s Head Vermont Yellow Cheese. Excellent Breakfast Sandwich! I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The heavy rains have returned! Rain and Thunderstorms most of the day, a high of 57 degrees. All this rain is going to cause more flooding. I took Mom to get her hair done and after dropping her off I went over to see a friend of mine. He’s been home bound with a broken leg. He’s doing good, but has a bad case of the Cabin Fever! Back home not a lot going on, just did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Cumin Spiced Pork Loin Chops w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Golden Hominy.

 

 

 

 

I had bought a package of Center Cut Pork Loin Chops from Meijer a week or so ago and had broke the package down and had the individual Chops in plastic bags, in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of the bags and laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. So 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. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes.

From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 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.

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared the Little Potato Co. Savory Herb Potatoes. We love these! 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.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second 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! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared French Toast and Sausage. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Cinnamon. For the Sausage I used Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain almost all day on and off, 46 degrees. Good day to stay in, which I needed. Up most of the night battling the Phantom Pains. They started about 9:00 last night and didn’t let up until about 11:00 this morning. It was one long night! So after the Phantom Pains stopped I caught up on some much needed sleep. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a Bone – In Pork Loin Chop and had it in the freezer. I grabbed the Chop from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

 

 

 

To go with the Chop I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I love the combination of Mashed Potatoes and Beans!

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. I had to have Mom at the Doctor’s Office at 9:15 this morning. The Doctor’s Office was packed, the flu is going around! I waited outside in the car, I didn’t want to pick anything up while in the office. They have Mom on a new subscription. All her vitals were great and said the prescription should do the trick!
