|Mia studying Portuguese|
Tonight we are expecting family driving down from Prince George which is about a nine hour drive to Vancouver. I thought it would be nice to make a Pork Tenderloin with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and carrots and as a side dish I made Tzatziki dip and a raw veggie platter. Both the meat and the dip recipes I found on the internet. My husband was a bit leary of me trying a new recipe for company. I had faith! I had also read about 20 of the reviews so I was very convinced it would be good.
- 1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
- 1/2 package envelope dry onion soup mix
- 1/2 onion cut in circle slices
- 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup beef broth
- 3/4 cup red wine
- 3 tbsp. minced garlic + 3 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- fresh ground pepper
- pinch rosemary and pinch thyme
- 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- fresh parsley
We enjoyed this with plenty of cornbread, some rye bread and of course a bit of red wine.

As with all good family dinners it is a good time to have a few laughs and enjoy each others company as we did. We did however, have to keep checking to see if Mia was trying to sneak back into the kitchen to steal another morsel of food. I have never known a cat to have quite a personality such as hers. She is a sweetheart though. If you liked this blog you could see my more recent blog at : http://www.jaxjule.wordpress.com
