Yes...I got it done!!

Today I planted 213 Bulbs. I am babysitting my grandbaby and accomplished this feat in between his two naps. I know in the Spring I will be so happy. I love the first burst of color particularly when they emerge when snow covers the ground.

We are having a good dinner tonight. I am going to use an herbal rub on a pork tenderloin for dinner. It is a recipe I have used many times and is always a hit. My husband and I are on a diet, so lean pork is good. I am also going to roast some fresh asparagus and then grate some Parmesan cheese on top. I love my grandbaby but I am tired so I am hitting the hay early!

Recipe for Pork Tenderloin
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
In separate bowl mix dry ingredients such as garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, thyme and salt. Stir mixture with a fork until all the ingredients are well combined and they form a seasoning. This will be used as a rub to ensure the pork is well seasoned throughout. Sprinkle the rub over the tenderloin with a dry hand, then rub the pork with the seasoning over both sides of the meat, pressing gently so the seasoning adheres well to the tenderloin.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and heat. Add the minced garlic and saute, stirring, for 1 minute. Put tenderloin in the pan and cook for about 10 minutes, searing each side using tongs to turn the meat. Transfer meat to a roasting pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.

It was delicious! Best of all no added salt.
