Pork Tenderloin

This is so delicious, I thought for today I would post it for you to try, I love pork, even though I know it is not good for me, anything pork is good to me. Hope you try this and let me know how you like it. I think perhaps Tuesday I will try it again, for company coming then, pray I get to feeling better, I have had this bad cold, started as a head cold now in my chest, I am coughing a lot too, I rubbed down with Vick last evening before bed, and used the wax paper we used to when I was young, felt so funny, I was a real crinkle with every move.
So here is the Pork Tenderloin Recipe for you.


1 (1 1/2 pound) fat-trimmed pork tenderloin
salt and pepper to taste
all-purpose flour for dusting
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (8 ounce) bottle Russian-style salad dressing
3/4 cup honey
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.Trim any excess fat from pork and pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Dust with flour, shaking off any excess.
3.In a large skillet, heat 1 to 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Sear the pork in the oil, rotating to brown evenly all sides. Transfer to a baking dish just large enough to fit the tenderloin.
4.In a bowl, stir together the Russian-style salad dressing, honey, and onion soup mix. Pour evenly over the tenderloin, rolling the meat to coat on all sides. Cover with aluminum foil.
5.Bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, basting with glaze every 10 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking another 30 minutes, or until pork is no longer pink in the center.

Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup water
3/4 cup Italian dressing
3 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce
freshly ground black pepper to taste

1.Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker with the contents of the soup packet. Pour water, wine, and soy sauce over the top, turning the pork to coat. Carefully spread garlic over the pork, leaving as much on top of the roast during cooking as possible. Sprinkle with pepper, cover, and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve with cooking liquid on the side as au jus.

From My House To Yours

Isn't it funny how our lives intertwine, most of us have
never met, yet we know each other, we look forward to seeing what each other have to say, in our every day life, even though we do not what all that life holds.
God has joined believers all over the world, that we reach out to each other, and even though never meet, we have a kinship, that was made possible though the blood of Christ, he made us family, and all that is in his family are our family. So sister to sister, and brother to brother, we unite as Christians, spreading the rich word of the Gospel to all around, we have so much in common most of us lead the same life, and some old, some young, some rich, some poor, we still unite as sisters coming together to read what we feel is important.
I ask that you pray for our son Jim, he is the same one that was so sick a year ago, and received Jesus Christ as his saviour then. He passed out at work the other day, and after some testing and X Rays, they have found a nodule on his lung, it is 17mm and has grown from 3mm 3 months ago, not sure why something was not done when they first fount it, but now it is about 1/2inch, and sure needs some tending to. So I ask that you pray with me over this, and that the lord will hear, and may his will be done. I really appreciate it.
It is warming here, in the 50's now, and cleared finally after two full days of rain, I am ready for some sunshine now. I hope you have a great evening at prayer meeting, and if you would add my son, Jim Harris to your list.
Thank each of you, and know you are in my prayers.

In His Love, Barbara♥

Today The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... I see it is foggy and drizzling.

I am thinking... That this is going to be a very quiet and peaceful day.

I am thankful for...For the nice comfortable home I have.

From the kitchen... The smell of coffee is making me feel very warm and cozy.

I am wearing... My jammies and robe and slippers
I am creating... gifts for valentines day

I am check for eggs in bit, when I finish here

I am reading...Phillip Kellers, The 23rd Psalm, it is a wonderful book, I recommend reading it if you get the chance. 

I am hoping... That my dear husband has a very good day with the ministry work.

I am hearing... Nothing but the hum of my computer.

Around the house... I will get lots of cleaning done today, being alone here gives me much ambition.

One of my favorite things... Is to hear good preaching.

A few plans for the rest of the week....Tomorrow will be an early dinner, and church for prayer meeting. Thursday will be another running day, and Friday back to Jacksonville, FL. 

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Thought for the Day...A Better and an Enduring Substance

"For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise."
(Hebrews 10:36)
As Christians, we have certain heavenly possessions, and this knowledge helps us put our earthly possessions and welfare in proper perspective.

True Contentment...Comes from knowing Jesus Christ as personal saviour, he will give you the only true contentment in your life, the world cannot give contentment, only some one without sin or baggage can give us contentment. Like the book of Philippians says, in 4:11  "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." 

I hope you enjoyed what I have shared here today, I have followed Simple Woman's Daybook from Jan Dante
