Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Cut Italian Beans, and Italian Round Bread

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Cut Italian Beans, and Italian Round Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a Poached Egg served on top of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not to warm out there today, a high of 35 degrees. Our flowers and trees that have had already came out are still surviving. Everything has blossomed so earl this year. Dad is doing okay, he’s ready to come home. He’s been the hospital and rehab now for about 1 1/2 months. Cleaned the house today and did some laundry for Mom. Had to replace the lint hose on back of the dryer. Everything done, took it easy the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight it’s Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Cut Italian Beans, and Italian Round Bread.

 

 

I picked up a package of Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department yesterday. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. 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. 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.

 

I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash. This has quickly become a family favorite. 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, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 1/2 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and 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!

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans of any kind every day and never get tired of having them. For Dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Savory Potatoes and Golden Hominy

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this March morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese.Love these Breakfast Sandwiches! I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Lunch went to see Dad at the rehab center. For Dinner tonight a couple of new items. I prepared a Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Golden Hominy.

 

 

 

Second time we’ve had these, and love them! I wasn’t a fan of Brisket of any kind but this one has changed my mind on Brisket! It comes already seasoned; Dry Rubbed Chili Lime. It comes packaged in 2 pieces. I used our large Cast Iron Skillet to cook it in. To prepare it; Preheated a lightly oiled, used Extra Light Olive Oil, Cast Iron skillet over medium-high heat. Removed meat from package and coated the Brisket lightly with Pam Cooking Spray and placed in skillet. Sauté approximately 10 to 12 minutes before turning. Turn the brisket and cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Sauté until the internal temperature reached 145˚F in the thickest part of the meat.

 

 

 

 

Removed from skillet and let it rest for 3 minutes. Sliced and served! It came out delicious! It had a nice char on the outside and was tender and moist, cooked perfectly. Another good item to have handy from Swift Premium.

 

 

 

Another favorite I always pick up at Meijer are the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. 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 side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and its been a while since I’ve any. For those that has 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. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower and Green Beans

 
For Breakfast on this snowy March morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried slicesdry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-012 of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese. And I had my Breakfast Sandwich! I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside another snow squall moved through the area, just like yesterday morning and about the same time of morning. Some areas had 2″ or more, we had a little over a 1/2″. Guess Old Man Winter wanted everyone to know it’s still Winter! Back into the 60’s by Monday though. After Lunch went to see Dad at the rehab center. He wasn’t looking too good today. I’m starting to really worry about him, hope he can turn it around. For Dinner tonight a couple of new items. I prepared a Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 
First time we have tried the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket. We’ve tried a few of the dry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-005others so we thought we would try the Brisket. I’m not normally a fan of Brisket of any kind but this one has changed my mind on Brisket! It comes already seasoned; Dry Rubbed Chili Lime. It comes packaged in 2 pieces. I used our large Cast Iron Skillet to cook it in. To prepare it; Preheated a lightly oiled, used Extra Light Olive Oil, Cast Iron skillet over medium-high heat. Removed meat from package and coated the Brisket lightly with Pam Cooking Spray and placed in skillet. Sauté approximately 10 to 12 minutes before turning. Turn the brisket and cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Sauté until the internal temperature reached 145˚F in the thickest part of the meat.

Removed from skillet and let it rest for 3 minutes. Sliced and served! It came out delicious! It had a nice char on the outside and was tender and moist, cooked perfectly. Another good item to have handy from Swift Premium.

 

 
For one side dish I tried another new item, the Green Giant Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower. I found it dry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-008Meijer the other day. I read the reviews on it and it seemed everyone enjoyed the taste but a common complaint was it too watery and thin. So I added a teaspoon of flour too it during the final 10 minutes of baking time and it seemed to cure that problem. It comes frozen in microwavable or baking tray, I baked mine. To prepare it; Preheated the oven to 425 degrees. i cut 2 slits near the center of the plastic to vent. Placed it on a baking sheet and placed it in the oven and baked it for 30 minutes. Removed it from the oven after the 30 minutes and peeled back the plastic and stirred. I also added a teaspoon of flour to it to thicken it up a bit. Replaced the film back on top and baked an additional 12 minutes. Removed it from the oven and let it stand 1 minute. Stirred it and served! Excellent taste and the flour thickened up just enough. Nice change of pace side dish.

Then I also heated up a can of my favorite, Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat to a light boil and heat until warmed. I also heated up the leftover French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Vegetarian Baked Beans

 

 

panko-crusted-cubed-pork-steak-w-gravy-mashed-potatoes-and-veg-006

I fasted overnight I had to got the Urologist for my yearly checkup at 8:00 this morning. After that I headed off to Meijer, I just needed a few items. Back home I did some house cleaning and finished up a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. After Lunch I went to spend the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center. He’s taking therapy twice a day still and getting stronger!. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Beans.

 

 

I bought a of packages of Cubed Pork Steak at Kroger the other day. To prepare them, I got the big three out to bread it with; Flour,Egg Beater’s, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Steak with Sea Salt and Black Ground Pepper. Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich Shake and Bake 001Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika and rolled the Cube Pork in that and shook off the excess. Then I dipped it in the Egg Beater’s shaking off the excess and then pressed both sides in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides was well covered. I heated up a medium size skillet, that I drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, on medium high heat. Added my Cubed Pork and fried both sides about 4 minutes per side, till each side was golden brown. Topped it with some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. The Cubed Pork Steak came out delicious! Moist and very tender with a good flavor from the Paprika and all the other ingredients. As you can tell in the picture, the Steaks are huge so I cut them half, I’ll have the other half for Breakfast in the morning.

 

panko-crusted-cubed-pork-steak-w-gravy-mashed-potatoes-and-gre-002

Today’s Menu: Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Whole Grain Bread

 

 

 

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 these skillet Meals!

Another Spring like morning to start the day, about 52 degrees this morning. Had rain overnight and very foggy in places this morning. Had a high around 62 degrees, not bad at all for February in Ohio! After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway. Had a lot of leaves and debris built up through the last couple of months. Then after Lunch I headed out to go see Dad for a bit, he’s been making good progress. Might be released soon to come home. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Boneless Pork Loin Fillet w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Baked Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

boneless-pork-loin-fillet-w-whole-baby-carrots-and-whole-white-p-001

Tried another one of the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Whiskey Black Pepper Boneless Pork Loin Fillets. I love using these Swift Premium Pork Products. So easy to prepare and all come out lean and moist with fantastic flavor! I purchased this one from Meijer.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the Pork Loin from package and place in an uncovered roasting boneless-pork-loin-fillet-w-mashed-potatoes-cut-green-beans-an-002pan 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.

 

 

Mashed Potatoes

 

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!

 

 

 

Fried Walleye w Risotto and Cut Green Beans 004

 

 

 

I heated up a can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. I could have Beans every meal, love them! Then I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
