I pulled a pork tenderloin out of the freezer this morning with a bit of a vague idea of what I was going to do for dinner.  A while later, I was in the office doing a bit of work whn Victor came in and asked if I wanted a stuffed pork tenderloin for dinner.  I immediately said “YES!”

One thing about meals is I’m always willing to cook – but I’m also willing to sit back and be cooked for!  Especially since Victor is such a good cook.

I love to eat and I love good food, but I’m also not a fussy eater.  You’re cooking, I’m eating.  But it definitely is a plus when it’s something pretty spectacular.

As was dinner, tonight.

Victor cooked off a filling of shallots, spinach, speck, sun-dried tomatoes, bread crumbs, mozzarella cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper.  He split the tenderloin, pounded it a bit to get an even thickness, and then stuffed it and tied it.  It went into a 350° oven for about 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, he cut up a couple of potatoes, cut a head of cauliflower into florettes, drizzled it all with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic, and placed it itto the same oven.

The flavors blended perfectly!  Every bite put a smile on my face.

I really don’t understand people who don’t like to cook.  You just can’t get a meal like this in a restaurant – or out of a box.

My stomach is smiling…
