Today’s Menu: Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I have to be at the Dermatologist at 8:30 for my yearly check up. The Doc said everything looked good! Afterward Mom wanted to stop by Meijer, which is right down the road from my Dermatologist. Then we went to McDonald’s to pick up her Breakfast for her. Another nice day out, 81 degrees and partly sunny. In the upcoming days our highs will be in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s, Fall is coming! For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Baby Back Ribs w/ Baked Scalloped Potatoes.

 

 

We just had Ribs last week but Mom loves Ribs, so I have to keep Mom happy! I bought a package of the Curly’s Baby Back Ribs from Meijer earlier today. The thing I like about these Ribs is they are a lot easier and quicker to prepare. And they are good tasting Ribs!

 

 

To prepare them, it couldn’t be easier; The package instructions – Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove ribs from package and place on baking sheet; cover with foil. Bake 20-25 minutes. For extra Sauce we used Jack Daniel’s Honey BBQ Sauce.

 

 

The Ribs came out incredible! Tender, flavorful, and bursting with that BBQ flavor! Curly’s Baby Back Ribs is a very delicious and time saving way to have some good Ribs! I had bought 2 packages of them, I have the other one in the freezer, to be used soon! Good job on the Ribs there Curly!

 

For a side I tried another Reser’s Main Street Bistro side dish, Baked Scalloped Potatoes. I came across these Meijer. And we are hooked on them!. We had the Sliced Potato Casserole last night and having the Baked Scalloped Potatoes. This one also comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven, I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare , as the other’s were. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper and a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another delicious Potato Dish! Seasoned just right and you can hints of taste from the Butter and Sour Cream. I’m a proud member of the Main Street Bistro Nation! For Dessert later a Dole Diced Peach Cup.

Breakfast Beans with Microwave-Poached Egg

Mushroom-Swiss Turkey Burgers
In this gluten-free turkey burger recipe, lean ground turkey stands in for ground beef, and portobello mushrooms produce a juicy, flavorful alternative to the traditional bun. Melted Swiss cheese, sliced tomato and arugula top off this delicious low-carb dinner!…………………………..

Lemon Shrimp and Orzo Salad
Consider making a double batch of this easy pasta salad–it’s delicious the next day. The orzo will absorb the dressing as it sits, so add a little more olive oil and lemon juice if you’d like…………………….

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

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 to start this morning. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Tea I took Mom out to Ross, Ohio to pick up fresh Corn, Green Beans, and Tomatoes. On the way home she wanted to stop by Jungle Jim’s Market also. Back home I took my car up and had it washed and then I vacuumed the inside out. Back home just did a few small chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s earlier. 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 ihas the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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. Green beans are a healthy addition to almost any eating plan because they are a low-calorie, low-fat source of energy.

Crock Pot Ribs w/ Shredded Potato Casserole

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Shredded Potato Casserole

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for my Breakfast. 93 degrees, humid and mostly sunny out. After Breakfast we had to go pick Mom’s car up at the mechanic’s. She had the starter replaced in her car and it was faulty. So it was replaced for free. Afterward I took Mom’s car up and had it washed, filled it with gas, and stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the cart out of the shed and did a few things around the yard. I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs today! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Baked Shredded Potato Casserole.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs, her favorite, so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday and had them in the freezer. Then Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender and when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. These Ribs were huge, some of the biggest I’ve prepared. The Ribs are so tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot. Again just flat out delicious Fall off the Bone Ribs! And the JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Seasoning is so good on these Pork Ribs!

 

For a side dish we tried something new I came across at Meijer yesterday, RESER’S MAIN STREET BISTRO – BAKED SHREDDED POTATO CASSEROLE. I had seen this before at Meijer and decided to give it a try, and glad I did. It comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven. As usual I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

 

Very easy to prepare. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Potatoes and loaded with flavor! Fantastic Potato item to have in the fridge. I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread for Gumbo. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels along with a Diet Dr. Pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Back Ribs – Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.

Preparing Pork Shoulder………………….

A simple seasoning of salt and pepper is all it really takes to bring the flavor of pork shoulder out. If you want it to be a little spicy, you can throw some red pepper flakes in too or some brown sugar if you prefer a sweeter taste. Enjoy that Pork!

Healthy Weeknight Dinner Recipes
Find healthy, delicious weeknight dinner recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Grilled Fish Tacos
Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed chile rub and grill it instead. Make sure the fillets are no more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick so they cook quickly. Sometimes flipping fish on the grill can be tricky since the fish can stick to the grill or fall apart. The solution is to invest in a grill basket that easily holds 4 to 6 fish fillets and secures the fish in the basket for easy flipping. If you don’t have a grilling basket, make sure the grill is hot and well oiled before adding the fish………………………………….

Sloppy Joe-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Take sloppy Joes to a new level with tender sweet potatoes standing in for the bun. Sweet potatoes pair perfectly with the tangy, flavorful filling of ground beef, black beans and spices. Chopped dill pickle sprinkled on top adds crunch to this quick weeknight dinner the whole family will love………………………………………

One-Pot Cheesy Tex-Mex Pasta
This comforting one-pot pasta dish has a Southwestern kick. Chili powder and pico de gallo flavor the dish, while melted Mexican cheese adds a creamy finish. Top it with your favorite fixings like scallions, cilantro and sour cream, and serve it alongside a crisp green salad for an easy weeknight meal the whole family will love……………………………..

Its time to flip that burger……………………..

You’ll know to flip the patties when you see liquid pooling on the uncooked surface. Be careful not to char the meat or press down on the patties with a spatula while cooking, you’ll squeeze out all those flavorful juices.

Low to medium heat for sausages………………..

Most people cook brats and sausages way too hot. Those casings are really thin and rupture at anything over medium heat. Ruptured casings means a lot of flavor lost. Indirect grilling is a safe way to cook raw meat sausages. You don’t want your grill too hot. When you grill sausages, be sure to turn them regularly for even heating and to avoid bursting on the side.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for my Breakfast. 91 degrees and mostly sunny out. After Breakfast I took Mom’s car up and had it washed, filled it with gas, and stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the cart out of the shed to get some yard work done. As always I sprayed sunscreen on nice and thick, need it in this sun! I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs today! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Fresh Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer a couple of weeks ago and had them in the freezer. I sat them in the fridge to thaw yesterday afternoon. Then Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray and added a 1/4 cup of water.

And the JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Seasoning is so good on these Pork Ribs!

 

I prepared a small kettle of some more of those fresh Green Beans that we picked up in Ross, Ohio last week or so. These Beans are so good! Each Pod is loaded with big Beans. I could have these every day and never tire of them.

 

For another side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Next I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then I also baked some slices of New York Bakery Light Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
