Made brown rice risotto with broccoli and Mushroom stuffed pork tenderloin
DH says I was being overly ambitious, since I am ill. He's probably right. I have the dumb, I cannot brain.
The risotto was tasty, but far too much effort. Brown rice has plenty of flavour to start with. If I can't find an easier way to make it, I won't bother.
The stuffed tenderloin was series of misadventures. I defrosted a 600 gram package of tenderloin and found two weenie tenderloins instead of one larger one. I opened the jar of sundried tomatoes in oil and they were growing something, so I seeded a fresh tomato and chopped it and added that to the stuffing. By this time I was getting stressed and frustrated. It was getting late. I didn't sauté the 'shrooms and onion long enough, so they didn't shrivel as much as they should have. I ended up with way too much stuffing. I suspect it also had something to do with it being two small tenderloins instead of one larger one. So, I have a bunch of mushroom/onion stuffing left.
Then, again, because it was getting late, I guess I didn't have the patience to brown the tenderloins as much as I should have. The gravy is supposed to be definitely brown, not beige. I probably should have baked two small tenderloins for less time than one large one. They were a bit overcooked.
I was going to serve rødkål with supper, but by the time it was almost ready, I didn't even have the energy to nuke the, already made rødkål.
But, in spite of the misadventures, it tasted pretty good. I guess I should only cook simple stuff when I'm ill.
