Simple and Tasty Meal

Surprised with a Monday off, strolled through Trader Joe’s and grabbed a few ingredients and enjoyed a leisurely prepared meal at home.  Typically Monday’s are a rushed meal after work or leftovers from weekend cooking and sometimes a quick meal on the way home at one of our favorite local spots.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin w/Mustard & Orange Marmalade Pan Sauce

Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Red Bell Pepper

Iceberg Lettuce Wedges with Cherry Tomatoes and Crumbled Blue Cheese



Seasoned the pork with Penzey’s  33rd and Galena spice blend, browned stove top then finished in the oven.  Pan sauce: Sauteed shallots in the pan drippings, deglazed with Vermouth, stirred in Chicken Broth, Coarse Mustard, Orange Marmalade, simmered until reduced and finished with a dollop of Sour Cream.

Vegetables roasted with Penzey’s Mural of Flavor, Kosher Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, Olive Oil and Chopped Garlic.

Lettuce wedges napped with Blue Cheese Dressing garnished with crumbled blue cheese and halved cherry tomatoes.

Simply Satisfying Meal!



Eat Well…Be Well!
