Gettin' all domestic and shit

Today has been pretty uneventful, so you know what that means—more pictures of food. No broccoli this time, I promise. When I lost my job, I made a vow to cook dinner a few times a week. Umm, well that has happened...a few times. Tonight I decided to get back in the kitchen, and I'm glad I did—I always feel better after I make a home cooked meal.  Here's what I made:

 I started with a tomato, feta cheese salad with olive oil and pepper. Up until about just six months ago, I swore up and down that I would never like tomatoes. (Whenever I turned my nose up at a tomato, my dad would always say, "How can we be related?!") I wouldn't say that I LOVE them now, but I do enjoy them from time to time.

My main meal was peppercorn pork tenderloin and asparagus with pine nuts. The meat was really juicy and tender, but I overcooked the asparagus and it was a bit wilted. 

This picture looks like something that might be found on a soft porn website. That was not my intention; I just thought a photo of my face might be more exciting than a lone shot of a Weight Watchers ice cream sandwich. (Hmm, not sure if I succeeded.)

Tell me: Has anyone made any tasty meals lately? If so, I want recipes! 


  1. The diner was delicious, definitely looking forward to the next one. Best pork tenderloin ever!

    and in allrecipes.com you can say what ingredients you have or what you dont want and it will give you a ton of recipes. My mo mtold me about it last year and we use it all the time.

  3. Luke, you just loved the meal because I rarely cook! I'll have to work on that.

    Sarah, thanks SO much for that site!! I always think it's too hard to cook when my groceries start running low, but I know it's just me being lazy.
