I didn't do anything fun over the weekend, just the usual errands and chores around the house. I took my nephew to a youth group party on Saturday night. It was one of those murder-mystery parties where everyone dresses up like their character. Before the party he was trying to figure out if he wanted to be the murderer or not. Turns out he wasn't. Everyone really got in to it and I don't know where the girls all got such fancy saloon dresses but they looked so authentic.
So far, I have no plans for next Saturday. I might even go out to the mobile home to work on projects. So many projects. My nephew was asking me what the patches on the ceiling are covering and why none of the doors in the house fit the doorways. I was hoping he wouldn't notice. Ok, so maybe I should continue to make the house look a little more 'put together'. It does help my attitude when projects get finished and I would love for the kitchen to be functional. I hate to admit I fed him another Boston Market microwave meal tonight. I've been eyeing a pork tenderloin at the grocery store. I've never made one but it can't be that hard, right? It has direction right on it. As the weather gets cooler, I have plans to make cooking my hobby again.
Pork tenderloin sounds good. Pretty sure if you can do chicken then you can do pork. Cooking is fun and potential saves you loads of money, get in there!
I make pork tenderloin in the crock pot with root beer. Sounds weird, but works great. Cook, drain root beer, pull, add BBQ sauce.
He looks so authentic! Good job on the costume.
I've cooked pork loin in the crockpot too, but I sprinkled it with dry ranch dressing and put in potatoes and carrots. Yum!
I always throw my pork loin in the crock pot. The meat is so tender it just melts in your mouth. I like to put some garlic, potatoes, carrots, and black pepper in with it.
The costume is great!
Lizzie, I tried to cook today and found I was missing some ingredients. First shopping THEN cooking. I missed a step.
Kim, sounds great! We always have rootbeer around here. Now all I need is the pork.
Thanks, Michelle! So many good crockpot ideas! I'll have to put ranch dressing mix on my list.
Petunia, sounds great. I have one crock pot at the house but I think I will check the thrift store for another one for the mobile home. This sounds like the answer to my problem. I lack creativity when it comes to cooking meat.
