Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Canned Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 87 degrees, not as humid, and windy. About 10:00 this morning I went to Ross, Ohio with a friend to pick up some some fresh Produce. I got some Sweet Corn, 3 lbs. Half Runner Green Beans, Tomatoes for Mom and a neighbor, and South Carolina Peaches. I could eat a bushel of these Peaches! Back home, no need to water the garden the rain took care of that this morning. I cleaned the house this afternoon, ran the vacuum and dusted. Then I gave the house a good For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Canned Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I bought a 2 Chop Package from my Meijer the other day. To 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 150°, 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!

 

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them! It’s so good having fresh Beans in the Winter!

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of the Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. I had ordered a couple of ears from Meijer yesterday on my delivery order. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Boneless Pork Ribeye w/ Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

For Breakfast this morning I prepared 2 Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage Patties, some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, i Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Delicious way to start a very cold morning! Overnight we got 1 1/2 inches of snow. But we are lucky that the roads were warm enough to where the snow didn’t stick. Then the high winds dried the streets before the temperature dropped, so no ice or snow on any of the roads. We had a high of 21 but the wind chill kept it to around 11 degrees! After Breakfast I had to go pick up a prescription of mine. Back home, I did a load of laundry. Then cleaned the Microwave and Kitchen. For Dinner tonight it’s a Boneless Pork Ribeye w/ Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I bought another of the AdapTable Pork Products at my last visit to Meijer. The Chophouse Seasoned Boneless Pork Ribeye, Seasoned with the Chophouse – Garlic, Onion and Bell Pepper. I’m so happy that Meijer started carrying the AdapTable Products!

 

I’ll be preparing them on the stove in a Cast Iron Skillet. To prepare them I heated one tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium-high. Cooked the Chops in a covered skillet for 8-9 minutes per side until the product reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer. Remove them from heat, and let them rest for 3 minutes. And serve!

 

 

 

I prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Salt Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

I also boiled a few Ears of Green Giant Mini Sweet Corn. To prepare them I boiled the Ears until done. Then when ready to eat I sliced the Kernels of Corn off and served it like that. I also had a couple Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Rolls. We love this Dinner and Sides! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Grouper w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Corn on the Cob Sweet Corn

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. 94 degrees, humid, and sunny out there. Watered everything down after my Tea. Then I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at Wendy’s. Back home they finally finished our outside wooden deck up! Took a while but worth it. I now have a ramp so I can roll right up in my Hoveround, so nice! Should have had it done years ago. It’s getting too hot and humid to do much else outside, called it a day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Grouper w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Corn on the Cob Sweet Corn.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. When we went to Jungle Jim’s this morning I picked up Grouper Fillets they had on sale, couldn’t pass that up! I first washed the fillets off in cold water and then cut the huge fillets into 4 smaller fillets, keeping 2 out for Dinner and froze the other 2.

 

To prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added McCormick Golden Dipt Seafood Fry Mix. Shook until the fillets was well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. And these turned out Delicious!

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Vegetable Products, always delicious and store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through.

 

For another side I boiled an Ear of Sweet Corn, thanks again to Jungle Jim’s! It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Quite a Meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea and a 1/2 a Cake Donut for Breakfast. Mostly sunny and 87 degrees out today. I completed moving everything out of the spare room but a chair, computer and computer desk, and T.V. out of the room. Then did some yard work and I also cleaned the 3 portable fans of all dust on them and inside of them. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

I had a pack of Pork Chops in a package in the freezer. Put the bag in the fridge to thaw overnight. To 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!

 

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Ross, Ohio it has the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. High of 76 degrees, mostly sunny and windy out today. A beautiful day to start this 4th of July Weekend! I went to Kroger for Mom after my Tea. Then I stopped by the bank for her and picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for her. Back home I did a little yard work and then just enjoyed this beautiful day! Rode the cart around the neighborhood. Later gave a neighbor a hand painting his deck. I’m starting a new tradition, Meatless Friday. At least for this Friday! I prepared Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Potatoes and Cornbread.

 

When we went to Jungle Jim’s last week we loaded up on Vegetables and Fruits. So Mom had prepared some of the 1/2 Runner Green Beans yesterday. So I’m heating up the leftovers for my Dinner tonight.

 

 

For the Corn, we purchased a dozen Ears of Yellow and White Sweetcorn. For that I boiled an Ear of it until done. Then when ready to eat I sliced the Kernels of Corn off and served it like that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the Potatoes, they were Russet Potatoes that we purchased at Jungle Jim’s also. Mom had already prepared those by peeling them, slicing, and boiling. I just reheat them and serve. Seasoned with Salt, Pepper, and Butter.

 

 

Finally for the Cornbread, Mom had prepared that yesterday. So I just heated that up and cut a slice of it, added Butter and ready to eat. So I got off pretty easy, I just heated everything up and served! I like going Meatless on a Friday, at least this Friday1 For Dessert later a 90 Calorie Cup of Breyer’s Chocolate Ice Cream. Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Fresh green beans – For the best source of nutrients and lowest sodium, choose fresh or frozen greens beans for cooking. Green beans also contain folate, thiamin, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, and potassium.

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet corn – Sweet corn is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Wikipedia
