Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin

When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name), I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action. I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing ‘Mr. Lonely.’ I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce’s.

A girlfriend of mine was just saying how her favorite part of my blog are the temper tantrum's. LOL

It got me thinking. It's not just the girls that have temper tantrum oh no, mommy, yep me... I can be a freak sometimes too LOL. I could blame this on hormones, I actually think that might be true. Sometimes when I'm about to get my period, Aunt Flow, the Crimson Wave the whatever you want to call it, sometimes when I'm about to get it I can actually feel the hormones in my body rushing through every fiber of my being. They are like playing tennis in my body.

So when I was pregnant with HBear I remember this one time...

We were in Winnipeg and it was like 32° in our house. It was so hot! We lived in tree hugger land and didn't have air conditioning LOL.  I remember laying there watching a movie with Ninja, we are watching 10,000 BC.  

At this point anyone that knows this story is laughing their asses off... at ME!

It was so hot out that I wasn't wearing anything I had ice cream and chocolate streaked down my chest and all over my very large belly.  Now, I have to tell you, Ninja is the worst person to watch TV or movies with. He is a nonbeliever of everything that he sees. He says guffs at anything isn't "real", or he has a factoid that tells you that what you watching isn't real. Hello?!?!?!?! I know it's not real it's TV! That's why I'm watching it to escape from reality duh!!! 

So here we were watching 10,000 BC and then Ninja says "Well that's not true there were no mammoths in 10,000 BC."

I lost it.

I was screaming and yelling and I jumped up on the middle of the bed and my hair was all over the place and I was naked. LOL I look like a caveman jumping on the bed over top of him telling him to get the hell out!

He was just trying to calm me down enough to get off the bed in case I fell, you know being seven months pregnant and all lol

But I could only see red I could feel rage throughout my body as I stood there and let everything out, all my fears and insecurities about being an unwed mother came to a head. I told him I was going to take the baby and give her my last name and she would never see him again because he obviously doesn't respect her mother for not understanding that there were mammoths in 10 000 BC! I screamed at him while sweating profusely for at least 30 minutes while flecks of spittle smacked him in the face.

It was literally ugly.  I behaved like a Neanderthal. 

When I was done I was exhausted. I slumped to the floor and he cleaned me up, got me back into bed and turned the movie back on.

To this day whenever I am acting CRAY-CRAY all he says is "1000 BC" and I stop. LOL

So yeah sometimes mommy has absolutely humiliating temper tantrum's too :)

This past weekend we were at McDonald's and I was running out to the van to get the coupons... yes I bring coupons to McDonald's, anyways an older gentleman was walking in front of me. I put my head down to make sure that I had the keys on me and I walked directly into him. 


Because the button stuck. That's right instead of just actually opening the door he sat and pressed the handicap button and waited for it to slowly open up! What is up with that? The other day when I couldn't find the remote control for the TV I went up to the TV to turn it on. 'Cause that's the way I roll, I will in fact get up! LOL Guess what, there's no button on the TV to turn it on or at least none that I could find! That is crazy. Are we so lazy that we just stopped putting buttons on TV's? Pretty soon there will be no handles on doors. Just PAINFULLY slow handicap buttons!


I have been craving fall dishes :) so the other day I bought pork tenderloins. Our pig doesn't give us any pork tenderloins because we get them all cut up into amazing steaks but sometimes you just need to buy the whole tenderloin :)

This was so good that we had no leftovers! I served it with mashed potatoes and some teriyaki stirfry vegetables and it was to die for Yum!

Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin
Adapted from Make Ahead Meals For Busy Moms

2 pork tenderloins (about 2-2.5 lbs.)
3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon rosemary, 
finely chopped 
3 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix together all the ingredients... except for the pork of course :)

Take tenderloins out of package and pat dry. Place in a Pyrex sprayed with Pam.

Take a knife and poke holes in the tenderloins (on the top side only) about an inch deep. Peel garlic cloves and cut them about the size of slivered almonds. Place the garlic slivers in each pocket.

Pour the mixture over the tenderloins and put into oven. Bake, uncovered, for 45-60 minutes, basting once halfway through the baking process.  

When the pork is at 170 degrees take it out and allow the tenderloins to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Spoon the pan sauce over the tenderloin medallions and enjoy!

You know when you hit your funny bone and it hurts like hell and you realize that it's just not that funny? That's kinda how I feel about losing two of my favorite comedians within a month of each other. 

I am a person that's really not into fashion but I am into comedy and every week I PVR Fashion Police. Just the other day I was watching and laughing uproariously as Joan Rivers said "come back next week we will be live at New York fashion week"... Well I guess it's like the funny bone and the joke is on us :( very sad. You'll be missed Joan Rivers. My mom always said that it comes in threes, I feel like emailing Chris Rock and Adam Sandler and letting them know that they may be on the list of the next to go because it seems like my favorites are dropping like flies LOL Well at least Mom is in good company... I think the 2 of them will get along GREAT! :)

I usually buy a pork loin prepared - but I think I will try your recipe and make this one. My family will be so surprised.
