Low calorie, easy and delicious!

Low calorie, easy and delicious!

Another day at home with little water.  I am clean though.  Just took a bath in about 2 inches of water.  Brought me back to the  days of  staying  at my grandmother’s farm with no running water.  It was fun when I was 5 years old , but now you could say I am spoiled!  The news is that it could be into next week before our water is back to normal.  It could be worse.

I usually grill pork tenderloin , but with all the rain I pulled out an old recipe from  pork The Other White Meat.   Pork is so versatile.  I serve this with Hashbrown Casserole ( I will share the recipe later ) or a baked potato and something  green like asparagus, broccoli, or green salad.  All of this is quick and easy to do.  Here is the recipe.
