Back in the Saddle with Fresh Orange Pork Tenderloin
Well, renovating the house is proceeding. I had hoped that rebuilding the kitchen would move as quickly as demolishing it, but not so. We have moved down stairs into the old first floor apartment. I am using the new kitchen, but it needs to be painted and some more trim work. I have decided to start posting again, although I cannot find the cable that easily connect my camera to my computer. Moving and putting half of our things in storage has been challenging.
Last night I served the fresh orange pork tenderloin for French Fridays with Dorie. I almost didn't make it. I am quite happily married to a man who will eat no fruit combined with meat. While pork and apples make me gleeful, he doesn't understand it. I was pretty sure that he wouldn't enjoy this. It was easy meal. Pork tenderloin was browned and simmered in a sauce of onions, oranges and cardamon. I served it with rice and green beans. Everyone enjoyed it. Even my husband. It isn't a meal that I will make again but it was fun to be back in the saddle. I'm going to do some catching up.
