Insanely Delicious...

We made the yummiest dinner last night. So made lemon and garlic pork tenderloin. Marinated overnight in olive oil, lemon juice and zest, lots of garlic, fresh thyme and rosemary, salt and pepper. She browned them until they were nice and brown all around. The smell was delicious!
Ready to deglaze the pan with some stock and white wine:
Ready to go into a 325 oven for about an hour. I kept going out to the garage just to have the pleasure of coming back in and smelling how delicious this was!

She made whipped potatoes and thickened the stock and pan juices :
I made a salad of baby spinach, toasted pecans, Danish blue cheese and pears, drizzled with good balsamic vinegar:
It was insanely, immoderately good!

For dessert, gluten free apple crisp, with apples, raisins, butter, cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom and brown sugar brought for us all the way from Fiji by Kyla! Topped with toasted pecans, walnuts and almonds tossed with butter and more brown sugar. The sugar has a slightly more delicate flavour than the brown sugar we're used to, and is more crystalline. If I do say so myself this was delicious too.
When we were done we were couch potatoes! Happy, full couch potatoes. And tonight....the wonderful lazy world of leftovers!
