Dinner Tonight!

My parents went to an event tonight so I made dinner for my brothers and well, myself. It was really good. My mom had been marinating some pork tenderloin but I added some extra spices to it. I have a bunch of really cool spices that our friends got us from a place called Savory Spice Shop. They are really cool, different spices and I use them a lot in my cooking. They are just organic and fresh and not cheap. I would post them on my recipes but not many people have them and they are pretty crazy so I group them with what their type of spice is. But I used garlic salt, and 2 of the spices; one was a spicy one and the other was an herby one to crust it. I seared it for 2 minutes on each side Put it in a 375ยบ oven and cooked for 30 minutes; let it rest and cut it. It was delicious but to make it better I cooked some orzo and some homemade applesauce. I love applesauce with pork. It was my first time trying it but I thought it was great. I will do a post about the SAVORY SPICE SHOP.

Apple Sauce:
3 granny smith apples- medium sized
2 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbs. granulated sugar
1/4 cup water

HOW: Cube the apples and add everything in a medium sized sauce-pan. Cook for 10 minutes with lid on, on about medium heat. Take and blend together. There you go!! Easy and quick. ENJOY!!!

3 cups tap-water
1 1/2 cup orzo
1 pat butter
pinch salt
pinch pepper
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. garlic salt

HOW: Boil salty water and rice together in a pot. Turn on simmer, put a lid on it, and cook for 20 minutes. Take lid off and add butter, thyme, garlic salt, and salt & pepper. Stir and fluff orzo! ENJOY!!
This is the orzo!
