I said I wasn’t really in the mood to go out to dinner, so Ryan took control in the kitchen and made us a delicious meal!
The star of the show was his amazing pork tenderloin.
Ryan made the pork using a delicious cut of meat sent to us to try from U.S. Wellness Meats, a company whose animals are 100 percent grass-fed, and raised with all the principles of holistic land management and sustainability.
He prepared the pork by coating it in a dry rub he made by following Ellie Krieger’s recipe.
The meat was absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t get enough! We both loved the dry rub and the pork itself was lean, yet moist and so flavorful.
Sides for the evening weren’t homemade, but they were great!
Ryan stopped by The Artisanal Dish, the restaurant/grocer we fell in love with last weekend and picked up zucchini boats stuffed with farro, carrots, onions, red onion, tomato and Parmesan cheese and a homemade crab cake for us to share.
I loved every last bite!
Ryan also brought home slices of chocolate cake from The Artisanal Dish for each of us for dessert.
We had no problem finishing off our respective portions.
The remainder of our Valentine’s Day was spent hanging out at home, reading the final book in The Maze Runner series and eating a second round of dessert (milkshakes!) before bed. Perfect!
This morning, we awoke a little after 7 a.m. and I had grand plans to make a delicious Sunday morning breakfast.
What are those?
Yesterday I stumbled upon a box mix for Archer Farms’ cinnamon pecan swirl pancakes and just had to buy it.
Oh goodness these pancakes were like little pockets of sugar.
Healthy? No. Delicious? You betcha.
With a sugar-filled breakfast in our bellies, we headed off to church before stopping by the grocery store on our way home.
And now it’s lunchtime!
This Sunday is flyin’ by and needs to s-l-o-w down!
