Dinner Tonight: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Cut Italian Beans and Loaded Baked Potato Casserole
It's May 14th and we had to turn the heat on this morning! Come on warm weather, we are ready!
Toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker's Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Cleaned the house today, vacuum and dusting. Then after lunch headed over to see a friend of mine who had surgery a couple of days ago and now is home. He's sore but feeling a lot better! Then I headed over to spend the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center. He's getting a little stronger but a ways away from coming home. Back at home took a short nap and back up to make dinner. Tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w/ Cut Italian Beans and Loaded Baked Potato Casserole.
While at Costco yesterday I bought another package of Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions. They
cut it and seasoned it as I shopped. As the first time I purchased some the package had 24 slices. I kept 4 slices out and froze the remaining 20 pieces.
I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare them I used a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it
Then for one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready!
Then I also prepared a box of Idahoan Loaded Potato Homestyle Casserole. I love all the Idahoan
Potato Products. A very quick and easy way to prepare some delicious piping hot Potato Dishes. A very quick and easy way to prepare some delicious piping hot Potato Dishes. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.
The pork tenderloin, in some countries called pork fillet, is a cut of pork. It is often sold as prepackaged products by large grocery stores. They are available plain and flavored with a marinade.
