Drunken Kidneys

Meat guru, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, inspired this recipe. In his rendition, he states that, “If you don’t like kidney, or you’re not quite sure, this recipe will convert you.” I fell in the “not quite sure category”, but I also believe it’s important to consume the whole animal, so thought I would give it a try. I was quickly converted. It is a delicious dish, and would make a terrific hors d’oeuvre for your next party.
Ingredients:
1 – Wild Idea Buffalo Kidney
1 – cup milk
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – cup mushrooms, chopped
2 – tablespoons cider vinegar
¼ – cup red current or plum jelly
1 – cup dry sherry
1 – cup white wine
2 – teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
¼ – teaspoon cayenne, *I added more
1 – tablespoon, Dijon mustard
1 – tablespoon cream or sour cream
fresh parsley & chives, chopped

 

Preparation:
1) Rinse kidney, pat dry, and cut into pieces. Place kidney in a bowl and cover with the milk. Soak for 2 to 24 hours. Drain the milk from the kidney and pat dry.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add the kidney and season with the salt and pepper. Sauté until browned, tossing or stirring occasionally.

3) Stir in the mushrooms and sauté for a couple more minutes.

4) Add the cider vinegar and then the jelly. Stir to incorporate.

5) Add the sherry, wine, Worcestershire, cayenne, and Dijon. Stir to incorporate. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 30minutes.

6) Remove lid and stir in cream. Season to taste, garnish with fresh herbs, and serve with toast points

It’s Nuts I tell you………..ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

This week from the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) its ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Wheat Powder is just one of the items that you’ll find at the Nuts site (https://nuts.com/). You can choose from GIFTS, NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and more! Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. So now on to the ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

Organic wheatgrass powder is all natural whole leaf organic wheatgrass bound into a perfect powder. Considered one of the most potent leafy green vegetables, wheatgrass powder is packed with beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber, iron and vitamin K and is non-GMO.

Wheatgrass is the sprouted shoot of wheat. Our organic wheatgrass powder is made from dehydrated wheatgrass to preserve active enzymes and maintain a naturally-rich nutrient profile.

Health Benefits
Organic wheatgrass powder contains an abundance of chlorophyll, which helps detoxify and cleanse the body while eliminating harmful toxins. Chlorophyll is also the reason wheatgrass has an alkalizing effect on the body, balancing pH levels and correcting a build-up of acids, which can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. This alkalizing process also helps deliver oxygen to your cells, giving you a boost of energy. Wheatgrass enhances your body’s ability to ward off infections because it contains immune-boosting nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C. By weight, wheatgrass is approximately 85% pure plant protein and is made up of more than 20 amino acids. Wheatgrass is also a rich source of dietary fiber, iron, and folic acid, and has the capacity to absorb 92 minerals from the soil.

Preliminary research has been conducted to examine the potential health benefits of wheatgrass and the results have been promising:

1) A 2011 study from Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica revealed that wheatgrass helped lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in mice with abnormally high cholesterol levels.

2) Nutrition and Cancer released a 2007 study suggesting that wheatgrass may reduce negative side effects for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Tastes and Uses
Wheatgrass powder has a mild grassy flavor with a hint of sweetness that works well with juice, smoothies or water. Mix a teaspoon of organic wheatgrass powder into your drinks or sprinkle it on foods. The daily recommendation is 1-3 servings. The taste will blend right into a creamy salad dressing like this avocado wheat drizzle. For something a little sweeter try a wheatgrass smoothie, blended with soy milk and frozen fruits.

Ingredients
Organic Wheatgrass Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and French Bread

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and French Bread

 

 

 

Chilly morning out there today, about 44 degrees with a cold wind blowing. So to start this Chilly morning off I had a bowl of Kroger Brand Bran Flakes also had that morning cup of Bigelow decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast went to the local Kroger for a couple of items and stopped at McDonald’s to pick Breakfast for Mom. Did some laundry for Mom and cleaned up a bit inside and outside. Hard to anything outside because it’s so windy. I was bringing in the neighbors trash cans for them and had to chase one of them blowing down the street. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Golden Hominy, and French Bread.

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a large Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce.

 

 

 

 

So 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 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 


For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and its been a while since I’ve any. For those that has never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

 

 

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 baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with 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.
