Diving into freezer this morning for dinner options... Guess what I found?  A Five pound Pork Tenderloin... First off I imedialtely wonder... Why in the heck do we have such a large piece of meat in our freeze? It's just the two of us here... and if we are expecting a family function we purchase those larger cuts prior to.  

Jim is working out of the house now, much to his shegrin.. and my delight, I now have access to him when the opportunity presents itself... instead of me forgetting these " Oh so important issues", until he gets home!  After waiting for him to get off the phone... I present him with this large hunk o' pork... and ask... why and when did you buy this?  

For those of you who don't know my Obsessive Compulsive food deal Hunter (OCFDH dissorder ) seriously I'm sure it is a real disease!  My love... Looks at me and states... 20.00 pork loin for 8 bucks ... need I say more? .... UMMMM well no!

What the hey... let's see how many meals we can get outta this freezer find.

Logged onto AR... and what is the recipe of the day?  Bacon Wrapped Pork Medalions! ( Ah... The cooking Gods are smiling down on this girl!  ) Now what to do with the rest?......... The Man of the house is a huge fan of barbecue sandwiches and I of rice and hash. Alrighty then... there's my meal planning... Bam .... Done!

Not so quick Bucko.... I have started an adventure, going back to school with Mrs Yeast... Thanks to my friend Lela and her recent blog... Add this to the menu... I'm gonna make , or try to make, the buns for the sammiches!  Using Chef Johns Hamburger Bun recipe ! 

Here are some pics of the starting Pork Palooza...

Great little story Terry. I don't think I would have passed up that tenderloin for 8 bucks. Great find Jim.

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
