On the hunt for something new and different to perk up your weeknight dinner repertoire? Look no further.
It can be hard to keep your mojo risin’ over a long and stressful week. Right around Wednesday (sometimes even earlier) the take out menus start looking reeeeally goooood. But a pork tenderloin recipe like the one I’m sharing at A Dish of Daily Life today can really help you out in this situation.
My daughter has dance class on Thursdays until 4:45. Traffic, which is something to reckon with in Brooklyn at any time of day, is particularly heavy at that time. Combine that with looking for a parking spot and we are usually walking in the door at 6pm. And did I mention it’s a Thursday?
We almost always order Mexican. Which is a little bit of a strain on the purse strings but it’s just. So. Easy.
But when I really sit down and think about it. Is it really so quick? So easy? Delivery has never taken less than an hour. Sometimes it’s more. And going to pick it up? Gah! That seriously decreases the “easy” factor of ordering in, doesn’t it?
If I marinate the pork ahead of time, I can actually have this dinner on the table in less time than it takes my guy to bring me my carnitas. And, in addition to being cheaper, it’s also much healthier.
And, since it’s all made in one skillet, clean up is negligible.
My son calls anything you have to get through to get to the good part “a Thursday.” I certainly know what he’s talking about. But we can inject a little extra oomph into this coming Thursday with this pork tenderloin recipe. Head over to A Dish of Daily Life to get it now. Thursday will never know what hit it!
