Remixed

Is this thing still on?

Tonight’s dinner was a remixed version of a couple recent meals: pork tenderloin, leftover mac and cheese, steamed broccoli.

This weekend, we’re having some friends over for dinner, and I still get nervous cooking for other people. Hopefully things will go off without a hitch, and I’ll have a bunch of pictures to share. Work has been incredibly insane lately, and I haven’t had much time to sit down and plan everything I need to buy, prepare, and do. Oh well, I guess that’s what Fridays are for!

Pork overload!

We ate pork on 3 out of 4 days this week! Next week will be a pork-free zone to compensate. The chops turned out well, and Roo was a big ol’ fan of the sauce. I think mushrooms would have made it even better (I tend to say this about most things though)! This time, I must give Roo proper plating credit – he did such a good job!

Left over

So I had a few slices of the pork tenderloin from last night, and a handful of pasta left from the chicken marsala night. I tossed the noodles in a pan with some butter and garlic, threw in the pork (cubed), diced up a tomato, and added a splash of balsamic vinegar and some salt and pepper. A little sprinkle of parsley later and dinner was ready – seriously took me less than 15 minutes! Roo loved it and asked if I could make this for his friends when they come over for dinner…who knew leftovers could be such a hit?

March menu

Sometimes the hardest part about cooking dinner is figuring out what to make. It’s so much easier (especially after a long, annoying day at work) when everything is already laid out for you, which is why I think it’s nice when Roo asks for a specific dish…OR when one of your friends has the idea of posting a monthly menu for others to try!
