What's for dinner?

10:00 pm – pull out a pork tenderloin from the freezer. allow to thaw overnight in the fridge. be thankful for another day. kiss hubby. fall into a deep sleep….. another long day ended!

6:00 am – grab a cup of coffee. jump in the shower. toss on something from the closet.  run a comb through the hair.  help teenage son wake up to a nice breakfast (well, cereal or a bagel…. juice on a good day…) . kiss the hubby.

6:30 am – mix 1/3 C real maple syrup, 1 t dry mustard, 1 t cloves, 1 t ginger, ½ t cinnamon , ½ t black pepper . pour over the pork tenderloin in a heavy duty plastic bag. throw in fridge.

6:45 am – walk the dog around the block.

7:00 am – kiss son, hubby and dog good-bye (do you mind that I kiss my dog???? he’s totally kissable)

7:30 am – 5:00 pm – teach classes, practice music, attend meetings, deal with the mountain of paperwork, pay bills, make phone calls, run errands and _____________ (you fill in the blank)

5:30 pm – start dreaming about your awesome dinner waiting for in the fridge. drive carefully home. create some type of side dishes.

6:00 pm – start up the grill. retrieve the pork from the fridge. grill to a golden perfection. slice thinly. serve with whatever seems yummy to you (baked cauliflower, baked potato, acorn squash. )
