Day 331: Of pork and presents

November 27, 2007

This evening we made Rosemary Lemon-Pepper Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Lemon-Parmigiano Dressed Greens and Garlic Croutons. When I say we made it, what I really mean is that L did a bit, I did a bit, but predominantly my mother made it while I read the instructions. Which was nice. The pork tenderloin was coated in a garlic, rosemary, black pepper, olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice mixture, then roasted in a hot oven for 20-25 minutes. The salad was dressed in a mayonnaise, lemon juice, olive oil, Parmigiano, salt and pepper concoction and tossed with delicious garlic croutons. They were made by frying cubes of bread in olive oil with garlic and salt and pepper. Yummy.

The meat was succulent with a good flavour from the rosemary and lemon. The salad was tasty, particularly the home made croutons. All in all, a very good meal. This post is very short as we have a visitor who hasn’t been here for about a year. The Grannie visitation is going well, Little A is much less shy than we anticipated, and she will be so tremendously excited when she sees the enormous pile of presents that she is in for. She’s a lucky wee girl. Anyway, Baby N is fussy, L is off to bed and we have to get some sleep so we have shopping energy for tomorrow. The heating was off last night, the repairman came this afternoon and for 4 whole hours the temperature in the house was pleasant. Now, the temperature is swiftly plummeting once more. A jinx in this house? Who’d suggest such a thing. Tomorrow we will be having some good old fashioned comfort food with Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf Patties with Pan Gravy and Sour Cream-Tomato Smashed Potatoes.
