My husband is pretty darn sneaky.
He often claims that he “can’t cook,” yet every once in a while, he comes out of nowhere and blows me away with an awesome dinner. This year’s Birthday Dinner comes to mind, featuring his signature garlic green beans. Oh, and then there was last year’s incredible Birthday Dinner, which I really need to have again ASAP. Plus, his status as Grill Master still holds true up in here, and his ability to make magazine-worthy grill marks never ceases to amaze me.
Well last night, he came out of nowhere again, and I was greeted with a fabulously prepared dinner right upon walking through the door from work. How fantabulous is that?!?
On the menu: Italian-marinated pork tenderloin (pre-marinated from the store) which was so incredibly tender and flavorful that I think I need to go back and buy a couple more this week to store in the freezer (they’re on sale at Price Chopper, FYI!).
On the side, he oven roasted some garlic-rubbed mini sweet potatoes and made another batch of his signature garlic green beans.
Can you tell we like garlic in this house?
Everything tasted absolutely perfect, and it was SO nice to just be able to come home to a home cooked meal. Thanks again, Chef Horan. Keep this up and I’m going to pass on my chef hat to you.
I woke up with a grumbling tummy so I decided to go for breakfast first, workout second.
Today’s breakfast was SO much better than yesterday’s mish-mash of stuff. So voluminous, fresh, and flavorful. YUM!
It totally hit the spot.
Time to get goin’ on that whole productive thing. But before I go…
