When buying Walnuts……..

Quality and good walnuts are usually elongated with a thin shell. If the nut is in the peel, then it must be whole without mechanical damage. Buy whole unshredded nuts, since it is better to see what kind of quality it is. They should not be moldy, stained, the color should be smooth and golden.

To store those Walnuts; Store shelled or unshelled walnuts safely in an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place. The refrigerator is a great choice as walnuts will remain fresh for up to three months. Walnuts will absorb odors so it is best to place them at distance from foods with strong odors, such as onions.

Today’s Menu: Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. The day started off rainy but gradually stopped and we had of 75 degrees and partly cloudy out. After the rain stopped I went to Meijer, I needed a few items and one of my neighbors needed a few items. On the way back I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home I did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning. For Dinner tonight I prepared Sliced Pork Tenderloin Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

To make this Delicious Mini Sub I’ll be using a Meijer Boneless Pork Tenderloin, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, and Perfection Mini Sub White Roll.
 

 

I had not had a Pork Tenderloin in a while so I purchased Pork Tenderloin from Meijer 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 the oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook for 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 for 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!

 

 

This is the first time, and why I have no clue, that I sliced one for Sandwiches. Anyway I let the Pork rest for 5 minutes or so before slicing. I then sliced the Tenderloin into thin slices. After I finished slicing it I let it marinate in its own juices until ready to use. Wow, what a Pork Tenderloin! It was so tender and juicy with flavor that was incredible.

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries that I served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Breyer’s Vanilla Bean 90 Calorie Cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Tenderloin….

Pork tenderloin is one of the leanest, most tender cuts of meat on the market, so it can also be a little spendy. Pork loin, on the other hand, can often be a bargain choice if you’re looking for a tender cut of meat that cooks well for a crowd. Pork tenderloin and other loin cuts are excellent sources of protein, thiamine, vitamin B6, phosphorus and niacin and good sources of potassium, riboflavin and zinc.

Southwestern Vegetable and Chicken Soup
Who wouldn’t want to eat their vegetables when they’re tucked into a fragrant broth with bits of tasty chicken and spiked with a shot of fresh lime and cilantro? This healthy chicken vegetable soup seems even richer with the smoky flavor from roasted poblano peppers and garlic. Serve this healthy chicken soup recipe with tortilla chips…………..

Butternut Squash Soup with Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Layering apple slices into grilled cheese sandwiches adds a little crunch to a favorite soup dipper. And creamy butternut squash soup with ginger, cumin and turmeric is a nice change of pace from grilled cheese’s usual tomato soup partner. Serve the duo for a comforting and easy weeknight dinner for the family. The soup keeps well in the fridge, so save leftovers for lunch or dinner later in the week……………

Loaded Baked Potato Soup
This healthy loaded baked potato soup recipe is inspired by the comforting flavor of fully loaded baked potatoes with bacon, Cheddar, sour cream and chives. To make a vegetarian version of this potato soup, omit the bacon and use “no-chicken” broth. Serve it with a green salad and crusty bread to clean up the bowl………..

When all a dish needs is a squeeze of lemon or lime to take it to the perfect taste level; get the most juice out of your citrus by rolling it on a cutting board before slicing in.

Buying Butternut Squash…………

Look for a squash that feels heavy for its size; one with a fat neck and small bulb will have the smallest seed cavity, yielding the most meat. Butternut squash should have a hard skin without bruises or mold. (A darker-colored spot indicating where the squash has been resting is fine).

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili
Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night. We love the smoky heat from the ground chipotle, but omit it if you prefer a mild chili. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread and coleslaw………..

Classic Lasagna
Here’s an old-fashioned meat-and-cheese lasagna made lighter. Whole-wheat lasagna noodles taste great in this recipe, plus they help boost the fiber to 9 grams, which is more than a third of the recommended daily intake and especially good news for a healthy heart………..

New England Clam Chowder
Chopped clams, aromatic vegetables and creamy potatoes blended with low-fat milk and just a half cup of cream gives this chunky New England-style clam chowder plenty of rich body. Serve with oyster crackers and a tossed salad to make it a meal………..

Keep pots from boiling over……..

Prevent overboiling by placing a wooden spoon across the top of it. Because wood is not a good material for conducting heat, the hot water strays away from the handle.
