Lent is here again...What to give up? I've never practiced Lent, but I was asked today what I was going to give up. I'd love to give up sweets they are my weakness to the fullest! I cannot go to bed most nights without a dessert.
Then again during the day I eat chips and salsa for a snack, totally addicted to Tostitos chips!
Things I should consider:




yet again I don't want to be miserable :) What is everyone else giving up?? I'd love your comments!

Delicious Pork tenderloin

I always have leftovers and I hate eating leftovers! Until now...I enjoy pork tenderloin but not plain. I get a hoison sauce and marinade the pork or use a peanut butter sauce.
Below is some pictures of the peanut butter sauce, we cooked the tenderloin topped it off with peanuts and green onions. The boys even ate them!

Now that you enjoyed the tenderloin and have leftovers, we make mooshoo wraps! They are better than chinese take out! We cut tenderloin into strips, saute cabbage, carrotts and green onion. Once everything is to your liking put into flour tortillas. YUMMY! If you need the recipes just ask!
