For my Breakfast I toasted a couple of Eggo Waffles and had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Shortly after Breakfast I headed out to Walmart. You have to go as early as possible when shopping at Walmart if you are dependent on using the electric shopping carts. Walmart has very few of them and if you go later in the day the batteries are usually dead because no one plugs them up to recharge. Anyway I went there to pick up some blankets and sleeping bags. Our Church runs a Meal and Aid center for the homeless and the Church has requested a need for those items with Winter approaching. It breaks my heart to think that people are in need of these basic items just to survive! After Walmart I stopped at Costco and picked up a few cases of canned goods for the Church and a local Homeless Center (Reach Out Lakota). Showers and only a high of 59 degrees out today, Winter is coming! So for dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans/Potatoes.
I grabbed a couple of Pork Chops from the freezer, that I had purchased from Meijer, and let them thaw overnight in the fridge.
Then to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted
For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. 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!
Then for another side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I really like using the Del Monte Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes, contains 2 of my favorite vegetables (Green Beans and Potatoes). I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Weight Watcher's Divine Chocolate Delight Ice Cream Bar.
