Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Baked Pork Chop w/ Fried Apples, German Potato Salad, and Green Beans

 

Baked Chop German Pot salad 007

It started out a rainy morning and the a sunny and a bit humid afternoon and then some heavy late afternoon and evening showers. just a lazy day of being a Couch Potato watching some College Football! For dinner a comfort food Heaven; Cast Iron Skillet Baked Pork Chop w/ Fried Apples, German Potato Salad, and Green Beans.

 

 

I had picked up some beautiful, good size, Pork Loin Center Cut Chops. I marinated the Chop in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce for 4 hours in the fridge. To prepare it i broke out the Cast Iron Skillet, just something about the Cast Iron Skillets that I love using them. Added about 1/2 tablespoon of Canola Oil to the Skillet and browned both sides I then moved to the oven, which I had preheated on 400 degrees. I then baked it for about 22 minutes. I pulled it out when it hit 150 degrees (internal temperature) and let it set for 5 minutes to let it finish cooking. I love Chops and this one was delicious! The JB’s BBQ Sauce is the perfect marinade for any Pork.

 

 

One side dish was some Fried Apples. My Mom taught me how to make these a long time ago and I still fry them that way except now I use Splenda instead of Sugar. To prepare them I used Macintosh Apples that I peeled and sliced into smaller slices. I used a Cast Iron Skillet for these also. To fry them I used a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, heated the Skillet up on High and added the Apples. I fried them, while stirring, for about 5 minutes and as they started to soften up I added about 3 tablespoons of Splenda Sugar Blend, maybe a tad less. Then stirred until well mixed and the Apples were soft. My Grandmother made Fried Apples this way, my Mom learned from her, and now I continue making them. Good Fried Apples!

 

 

Another side dish was Read German Potato Salad. First time I had tried canned German Potato Salad, I had tried the Read 3 Bean Salad and it was very good so I thought I would give this a try. I heated it up about 10 minutes in a small sauce pan and it was ready. It had a real good taste with plenty of Potatoes and nice Bacon size pieces. It does have a little strong Vinegar taste but I liked it, plus it’s only 120 calories and 20 net carbs per serving. I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Reduced Sodium Cut Green Beans. One nice Comfort Food Dinner! For dessert/snack later a 110 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Pita Bread Chili DogsPita Bread Chili Dogs 007

 

 
Spent the day on a project I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. I refinshed a small book-case I have. The top of it had watermarks on it that had ruined the finish. For dinner I prepared Pita Bread Chili Dogs.

 

 

I’ve using Pita Bread instead of Buns lately, lower in calories, fat, and carbs. So I thought why not try a Chili and Cheese Dog. I used Ball Park Smoked White Turkey Franks, which I use whenever I eat Hot Dogs, best tasting Turkey Frank there is. You can grill them or boil them, I boiled these. Then for my Chili I used Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar along with some French’s Yellow Mustard. While warming the Chili up I added a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, everythings better with Frank’s! Then for my Pita Bread I used Joseph’s Flax Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Pita Bread. I’ve been dropping a few pounds and Joseph’s helps by cutting the calories, fat, and carbs from sandwiches or anything else I would normally use a Bun for. Turned out delicious! I’ll have these again soon.

 

 

For a dessert/snack later a new product, Keebler Town House Oven Baked Pita Crackers w/ Sea Salt. I had those and dipped them in some Helluva Good Bacon and Horse Radish Sour Cream Dip. Made a nice combo, the Crackers are 70 calories and 11 carbs for 6 Crackers.
