Not Really Much of a Recipe to Review: Pork Tenderloin

Hi Readers,

How's your evening going?  Mine's going really good, I'm in a good mood.  I cleaned the kitchen after dinner, including taking out recycling and washing bottles, and it only took a short amount of time.  Also, my house smells really good because I just got new Scentsy warmers and scents this evening that I've been planning on getting for quite some time, and smelly good stuff makes me the happiest.  Too be honest, this good mood has been caused by quite a lot.  My husband and I have been doing yoga in the evenings to help with his back from an injury, and for medical reasons, and I've been joining in because I enjoy it.  We have also been doing devotionals at night, and it's amazing how good it feels to be close to your husband in every aspect of your life.  We have also been working on our budget, which we actually ENJOY doing, because we are both good at not spending money and we don't make big decisions, including purchases without discussing it.  It has been really fun to set a goal and challenge ourselves to race toward financial freedom!  We have big plans for our future, and as long as we stick to our plan, we can really start freeing ourselves, and soon!  We are so blessed!
I also am feeling blessed that I have a slow cooker and know how to use it, because in the short amount of time it took for me to clean after dinner, included my putting away leftovers, and washing to dishes dinner generated.
Well this is what I used today:

1 Pork Tenderloin, which I had a coupon for $1 off
1 Can of Diced tomatoes, which I bought on super sale


Yes, that is it!!  I put the two of those in a slow cooker on low for 8 hours, (or longer), cut in half, shred and put on tortillas with lettuce, cheese, sour cream and salsa, or salsa verde.  That was our dinner!!  And we still have the other half for a quick meal later this week!  And remember, pork tenderloin is a healthier cut off the pig compared to most others, in fact, off the top of my head, I can't think of any healthier cuts!  But seriously, this was such a cheap and easy meal, that it gave me time to play with the twins, clean the kitchen, and watch the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting, (don't judge, that's the most "reality" television I get into, and it's wholesome compared to so many others).

I hope that someday, hopefully soon, you can try out this "recipe" if you want to call it that, I think most people would enjoy this.

Take care,

Meg
