One of my favorite "go to" meals GG. I cut the included sauce with more OJ, and add green onions and bell pepper if I have it. Deeeeelish..

Tonight's meal was memorable. I followed Katie's idea of pork with Herbs de Provence, with a twist.

I trimmed and pounded out a salt and peppered pork tenderloin and smeared it "heavy handed" on both sides with Dijon mustard and a heavy crust of Herbs de Provence without lavender on both sides. Then I broiled it without turning on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes. I honestly think it's the best pork I've ever cooked.

We also had corn on the cob, slightly blanched, then cut off the cob and fried in butter with fresh basil ribbons, and glorified green salad.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Pulled lasagna out of the freezer and had that, along with fresh baked bread. I haven't made bread in over two months, but I've been missing it. It was so good, and I'm ashamed to admit we devoured half a loaf between the two of us.
