I got a great buy on pork tenderloin last week and stocked the freezer with a few. My pal, Sara makes them all the time and has told me how her boys love it and how easy they are to cook. She simply puts it in foil with a few spices and cooks it according to the package directions. I did just that and it was a winner at my house too! We had yeast rolls, smashed potatoes and sweet and sour green beans. It was a do over dinner for sure, for sure!
This week I made potato salad for the very first time and it was stellar! I hate to brag on myself, but it was just that good...I was impressed. I am not a big mayo fan so making anything like tuna salad, ranch dressing, etc is a real chore for me. I like potato salad if the mayo taste is hidden. I attempted the basic recipe from the red & white check cookbook and it was a success. I used red potatoes and lots of spices. Randall is not a big tater salad fan but he liked mine quite a bit. We had it with bbq chicken and homemade baked beans (I rarely eat canned baked beans b/c making them is so easy and they taste so much better to me). This was also a do over dinner at our house!
The do over dinners of all do over dinners at my house is the "bird sauce". Mercy, I can't keep that feeder full! Those birds sure like my "sauce". I have it attached to my kitchen window and there is usually a bird there every time I look. It is a chore to keep replenishing it, but such a neat thing to watch. I love it!
