Clean-Out-the-Fridge Vegetable Stew
Full of flavor and plenty of veggies, this easy vegetable soup is a great way to clear out some space in your produce drawer. This recipe is flexible enough that you can make ingredient changes based on what you have on hand. You could also very easily make this a vegan stew by swapping out the butter for oil. Be sure to defrost the frozen items and drain off any liquid that accumulates during defrosting time you don’t water down the stew. Because this recipe makes a large amount of stew, consider freezing half for later…………………………………..

Slow-Cooker Pork Posole
Mexican pork posole is the perfect dish to serve to a crowd. It’s hearty, comforting and full of well-loved ingredients. Mashing some of the beans and hominy thickens the slow-cooker posole and releases more of their earthy flavor. For a twist, substitute thinly sliced jalapeño chiles, finely shredded green cabbage and fresh thyme or cilantro leaves for the radishes, scallions, and oregano……………………………………

Slow-Cooker Mediterranean Stew
This Mediterranean stew is a healthy dinner chock-full of vegetables and hearty chickpeas. A drizzle of olive oil to finish carries the flavors of this easy vegan crock-pot stew. Swap out the chickpeas for white beans for a different twist, or try collards or spinach in place of the kale. Any way you vary it, this stew is sure to go into heavy rotation when you are looking for healthy crock-pot recipes…………………………………..

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.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

To start this morning off I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. , 89 degrees, humid outside, and passing showers out today. Cincinnati Bell came today and replaced and buried our new lines for the phone and cable TV. Heavy rain came in just after Noon so that stopped my yard work for the day. Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes.

I finally found a Pork Tenderloin at Kroger! They’ve been hard to come by the last couple of months, no local grocery stores have had any. So I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger the other day, just over 1 1/2 lbs. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 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 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe by far!

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

For another side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.
