ROAST PORK TENDERLOIN &/OR TROPICAL GLAZED PORK TENDERLOIN

This is my favorite method of cooking pork tenderloin. Bring the tenderloin to room temperature 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Lightly coat your ovenproof skillet with oil and sear the tenderloin over a medium-high heat and brown all sides. Salt and pepper to taste while searing.

If you’re using a glaze, apply it now.  The glaze I like is in the recipe below.

Place skillet in the oven and roast 15 to 20 minutes per pound, until internal temperature is 145 degrees. Remove from the oven, tent the pork with foil and let it rest about 5 minutes before serving. If you don’t use a glaze, make a quick pan sauce by deglazing the skillet with chicken broth, wine, fruit juice or another flavorful liquid.

Take its temperature ~ The tenderloin’s small size and leanness make it extremely susceptible to overcooking. The National Pork Board suggests cooking to a final internal temperature of 160 degrees, which can be achieved by cooking to 155 degrees and removing the tenderloin from the oven to rest 10 minutes (the temperature will rise several degrees). But, gourmet chef’s prefer removing the pork at 145 or 150 degrees (it is perfectly safe at this temperature) and letting it rest for 5 minutes.

For a glazed version try this recipe:
TROPICAL GLAZED PORK TENDERLOIN
2-3 pound pork tenderloin
1 cup apricot pineapple preserves
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Whisk together brown sugar and pineapple juice.
  • Blend in preserves.
  • generously salt and pepper the pork loin.
  • Spread a small layer of the glaze on the bottom of the roasting pan.
  • Lay the pork loin on top and spread the remaining glaze on top and along the sides.
  • Baste as necessary
  • Bake 45 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 150 degrees.

HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 6 of 2019

Happy Monday and Happy February!  I’ve been having trouble sleeping or should I say staying asleep.  I get to sleep just fine, but then I’m WIDE awake just a few short hours later and can’t seem to get back to sleep which is leaving me sleepy and lethargic! So I’m up early today and hoping to get a bunch of things done before I’m out of energy again.

 OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING I’m certainly glad we’re not in Chicago or even in our old community in the Upper Peninsula this past week, but we are cold for here.  A little snow is predicted for today and tomorrow – nothing that will be really bad, but cold none-the-less and they just aren’t prepared for it here.  The last time they predicted it like this we had a bunch of snow that turned to ice and made traveling a PAIN in the butt.  Fortunately I do not have to go anywhere and am able to stay warm and toasty.  I have on comfy yoga pants, warm fuzzy socks and my favorite well worn sweatshirt.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE  Honey Nut Cheerios, banana and green tea

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE/WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS/CRAFT BASKET/APPOINTMENTS

  • LAUNDRY… ALL caught up except for the towel folding
  • LIVING AREAS… need to dust and vacuum
  • KITCHEN… need to tidy up A LOT I made a mess making snack food for the Super Bowl and was too tired since I didn’t sleep the night before and had been up since 5AM on a Sunday
  • YARD… nothing
  • BLOG… I want/need to get back into some form of daily posting
  • CRAFTS/PROJECTS… working on some ideas to start an ETSY store with… not ready to show anything yet – will wait to see if what’s in my mind comes to fruition in reality
  • APPOINTMENTS… nothing much
  • TO DO… paperwork, VA follow up, makes some appointments…

ON MY MIND / THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY  In addition to the Blessings Gratitude jar this year I’m also doing the 52 week deposit challenge in the same jar.  It really is amazing how fast it adds up!  I do it on Mondays so it coincides with this post that always has the week number in it and I don’t really have to even think about it that way.

SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED I’d like to say the SuperBowl, but honestly it was boring and not even the commercials were up to par as in years past.  My favorite commercials were:

  • Christinia Applegate and M&Ms
  • Budweiser Dalmation Blowin’ In The Wind
  • Toyota Supra Pinball
  • Bud Light Corn Syrup deliveries
  • CBS “eyes”
  • Harrison Ford in Amazon’s Alexa “FAILS”
  • Charlie Sheen and Mr Peanut
  • Hobbs and Shaw movie trailer
  • The football awards just before half time

FEATURED PARTY LINKS FOR THIS WEEK I’ve now eliminated 14 sites from my ‘WHERE I LIKE TO PARTY” list since the first of the year. I find it refreshing to be downsizing and eliminating those blogs from the list that are too multi-layered and problematic in their effort to be a money making platform instead of the fun blogging experience.  I find a lot of inspiring projects and recipes at these blog hops and I still do this for the fun of it – I really want to keep it that way 😀

HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 13 of 2019

Be sure to join us and link up with
Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday

and with Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

GOOD MORNING I hope everyone had a wonderful week and is ready to jump into this last week of March wit both feet.  I had a good week, but am still a bit under the weather with a couple new issues (low blood pressure coupled with low blood sugar) that make too much activity an issue so have not accomplished as much as I had hoped to.  Here’s hoping this week will be better.  So let’s get right to it.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING  Well it seems that the false spring that sprung last week for a couple days is over.  It started raining again on Friday and the temperature dropped back down so we are cold, damp and dreary again for the most part. I have on Levis, a long sleeve purple t-shirt and gray pops.  I will be adding at least one sweatshirt when I venture out as it is currently in the 40’s with a breeze.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE Blueberry bagel and cream cheese with hot water

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE, WEEKLY TO DO LIST, HOUSE & CRAFT PROJECTS,  APPOINTMENTS

  • LAUNDRY… just a couple loads of t-shirts and jeans
  • LIVING AREAS… a little dusting and vacuuming
  • KITCHEN… clean 😀
  • YARD… fence repairs continue as rain allows
  • BLOG… a couple recipe updates
  • CRAFTS/PROJECTS… ???
  • APPOINTMENTS… a couple doctor follow ups
  • TO DO… make appointment with primary to discuss new health issues, a little organizing, a couple appointments…

ON MY MIND When I was young my grandmother, who was extremely set in her ways, taught me that a load of laundry should never be more than 8 pounds.  Honestly I never really paid attention to her and have done just fine.  I know the concept of weighing laundry sounds really odd and recently I decided to actually look this up and see WHY???  I found this article that will make you tired just reading about all the work our ancestors went through to do a load of laundry!  Evidently the “OLDER” machines manuals would call for weighing the load so you didn’t put a strain on the motor.

And why oh why do grocery checkers and baggers NOT know how to bag groceries??  Twice last week at 2 DIFFERENT stores items they tried to put on the bottom of the bag belonged on the top!  You have to watch with an eagle eye these days to avoid smashed bread, eggs and delicate herbs!  The first time the checker put my Italian parsley and bananas on the bottom of the bag and was going to put the bags of potatoes, onions and oranges on top of those.  I don’t know about you, but I do NOT like bruised bananas or herbs.  Another time the bagger put the eggs and bread in a bag together which was great and then she was going to put a couple gatorades and BAI water bottles on top!

I’M READING I’m trying to get into the current book, but have been trouble reading at night – hopefully this week goes better.

WHAT IS ON THE DVR, I LIKE OR ON THE LIST TO WATCH Just a few shows as basketball is playing havoc with the current shows being new.  There is Seal Team from last week and a couple cooking shows.  I did see a couple more “CLASSIC” movies that I’d never seen before.  The most interesting was Lost Horizon about Shahgr-La by Frank Capra (It’s A Wonderful Life) starring Ronald Coleman.

FAVORITE PHOTO Remember that trip I told you we took to get away from the snow a few weeks ago?  We went to the beach for hubby’s birthday and guess what?  It snowed there too 😀 The house faces the ocean.

HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY week 39 of 2017

I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend. It took me all week, but I finally got caught up from being gone and even though I wasn’t able to get everyone visited from last HHM, I PROMISE to be back on track this week! I also finally caught up on all my laundry from the broken washer and with hubby’s help moved one of the recliners into the bedroom so I can sleep better until after surgery and recovery. I CANNOT lay flat and sleeping is difficult at best.  The recliner isn’t comfortable either, but at least I’m not choking.

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE

We just can’t seem to catch a break weather wise.  We’re still supposed to be in the 90’s this week, but at least it has been a little better humidity wise, especially in the mornings.

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE

I’m at the point where I’m drinking more and more of my meals waiting on my surgery so breakfast is a PROTEIN DRINK and COFFEE so I can eat dinner later.

AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE / WEEKLY TO DO LIST & HOUSE PROJECTS

  • LAUNDRY… WHEW after last week I’ll settle for today’s 2 loads.
  • LIVING AREAS… I did a serious deep clean last week and everything still looks pretty good.
  • KITCHEN… LOL my kitchen is always in various states of food prep, but all in all is pretty clean this week.
  • STUDIO… is a complete wreck as I have made it my staging area for ebaying and packing up the house.
  • YARD… the post hurricane/ flood grass re-seed is growing fairly well and hubby will mow and edge later this week.
  • BLOG… I’m still working on combining into this blog the recipes from my old blogs.

CURRENTLY READING & TELEVISION / DVR

Most of the new shows begin this week so we’ll do a lot of DVRing and try them one at a time until we narrow the list to our new favorites.

I’m reading You Say It First by Susan Mallery.

I’m working on a mixed media canvas that I hope to have finished soon so I can show you.

ON MY MIND & THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY

We’ve been doing A LOT of research this past week and have narrowed our search to 2 different regions.  One we are fairly familiar with from a search a few years back, the other is close enough to check out for a few days before my surgery.  I’m still pretty worked up about how things have worked out with helping family here with this house and TOTALLY PISSED OFF that it caused us so much grief and pain, not to mention how much money it has cost us. We would have to stay here for at least 10 years to get our money back.

On another note, but along the same topic it appears our fears regarding my uncle being pursued by a gold digger are true.  We were recently notified (by her) in an almost threatening way that she has his power of attorney and that we should deal directly with her from now on.  As far as I’m concerned she still doesn’t exist as she was the one notifying us without any legal proof – so she can go jump in a lake. The uncle I’ve known all my life would NEVER forsake the little family he has left without being under undue influence or duress.

FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA

Gunny gets a few more treats now that he’s older.  He’s made it clear that he wants them served on a plate from here on out.

The post hurricane Harvey thunderstorms have been amazing and left us with some interesting skies. There are still debris everywhere and traffic beyond belief, but it looks like most things are getting back to normal.
