Keep a lid on this one……….

No Peeking. Resist the urge to remove the lid and peek at your meal. Opening the slow cooker lets heat and moisture escape, and it slows the cooking process. Once you put the lid on, leave it there until your dish reaches the low end of the recipe’s cooking range.

Is it a Crock Pot or Slow Cooker………………………..

A Crock Pot is a type of slow cooker; however, not every Slow Cooker is a Crock-Pot. A Crock Pot has a stoneware pot that is surrounded by a heating element, whereas a Slow Cooker is typically a metal pot that sits on top of a heated surface.

Place hard vegetables, like potatoes, carrots, and other root vegetables at the bottom of the slow cooker where they will have more moisture and cook swiftly.

Today’s Menu: Leftovers; Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Chicken Sausage Patty Breakfast Sandwich. I toasted a Healthy Life Multi Grain English Muffin, heated up a al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Patty, and topped it with a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Love these Breakfast Sandwiches! Also I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a couple of items. Then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Did some things around the house, inside and outside. For Dinner tonight Leftovers; I reheated the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans.

That Pork Tenderloin was so delicious last night I wasn’t about to let it go to waste! So I reheated everything and I had Dinner! I’ve the original post from last night for description, instructions, ans pictures. Till tomorrow!

 

I purchased the Pork Tenderloin from Kroger yesterday, a small one at just over 1 lb. 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 Cumin Spiced 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!

 

I prepared a Potato Recipe that I had not had in a while, Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes. Got the idea from several similar recipes. I’ll need; 1 pound Baby Gold Potatoes (halved), 1⁄4 cup Water, 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried Basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried Dill, Sea Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste), 1/4 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Parsley leaves.

 

 

 

I also cooked some more fresh Green Beans. Mom went Jungle Jim’s International Market and bought them. I love beans, but they are even better when fresh. I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn. I had an Ice- Water to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 


I had a Poached Egg and a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 73 degrees out today, but no rain! Did a little yard work. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then swept the shed out and straightened it up. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans.

Slow Cookers………

Avoid overcrowding when using your slow cooker. For the best results, fill a slow cooker between one-half and two-thirds full. Go ahead and cook big roasts and whole chickens; just make sure you use a large crock and that the lid fits snugly on top. Set it and forget it!

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

I had a Scrambled Egg and a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I topped the Egg with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheese. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’m not sure but I may be coming down with a cold, a Summer cold (blah). Hopefully I’ll be up and feeling better by tomorrow. I went to Walgreen’s and picked up something to take in case it is a cold. After that a day of bed rest! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger yesterday, a small one at just over 1 lb. 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 Cumin Spiced 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! The other “White Meat” sure is good!

 

Tried a new Potato Recipe, Slow Cooker Parmesan Potatoes. Got the idea from several similar recipes. I’ll need; 1 pound Baby Gold Potatoes (halved), 1⁄4 cup Water, 2 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried Basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried Dill, Sea Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste), 1/4 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan, and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Parsley leaves.

 

 

 

To prepare them; Line your Slow Cooker or Crock Pot with a disposable plastic liner. Lightly coat the plastic liner with nonstick spray. Add water. Place potatoes, olive oil, butter, oregano, basil and dill into the slow cooker; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours, you can also cook them on high heat for 2-3 hours. When they are fork tender serve them immediately, sprinkle with Parmesan and garnished with parsley. These came out incredible, another one of those Keeper Recipes! Plus easy clean up using the slow cooker liners.

 

 

 

I also cooked some more of the fresh Green Beans. I love beans, but they are even better when fresh. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a can of Coke Zero to drink.
