You may have noticed that blogging has taken a little bit of a backseat for me lately. It’s been a crazy couple of week. As you all know, I have a new job. I’m still adjusting to that, and we have had close family members in the hospital, which has also been stressful. I am happy to say that things seem to be looking up as far as medical concerns go. I think I am going to try and keep blogging 2-3 days a week. That’s about the average of what I had been doing prior to July. If you’re a longtime reader, thank you for being patient!
I have also noticed some new “likes” on my Facebook page and some new commenters on the blog! Welcome to my new readers!
I thought I would start by sharing an easy dinner from this weekend. I am ashamed to say that this is probably the first dinner I have cooked in 2-3 weeks. We’ve done a lot of take-out and/or restaurant nights lately. However, this week, we went to the grocery store and actually PLANNED out our meals again and I cooked!
Pork Tenderloin is always a go-to meal for us. I like to watch for when they go on sale (B1G1) at Harris Teeter. The other great thing about pork tenderloin is that there are 2 in a package. So if we cook both, we usually have enough for two meals.
I decided to grill it this time. We preheated the grill and turned it to low. I seasoned the pork with Emeril’s Original Essence and Lime Pepper (dried). Then I cooked it on the grill, turning it approximately every 8 minutes to cook all sides evenly, until it reached 160 degrees.
We paired the pork with my new favorite summer veggie: roasted okra.
So simple. Toss in EVOO, add salt, pepper, and Garlic Powder and roast for 15-20 minutes. Delicious!
Dinner was done in under 40 minutes and was delicious!
I was just going through my memory card and I thought I would include a few random shots of what has been happening lately. Hope you enjoy!
