It's been awhile...
I will admit, It's been awhile since my last post. With the change of the seasons and the holidays my plate has been very full lately. However, I have managed to complete a few new projects that I recently vowed to try.
The first thing I was determined to learn was a new stitch that I could try with my knitting projects. I am definitely a "rookie" in the world of knitting. Until recently the only thing I could knit was scarves with one stitch, the "knit". But that has now changed!! I just finished a scarf using two stitches; the
"knit/purl" stitch. And I even managed to give the scarf a bit of a pattern. While I am still in the infancy stage of this creative world, I am slowly learning to put new techniques into practice. I determined to teach myself a few more stitches and the next thing I would like to master is possibly creating something other than a scarf....a hat maybe??
Today I made my very first pork tenderloin from a recipe I found on Pinterest. I am not exactly known for my cooking abilities. And I was a little intimidated to give this a go. But I decided to step up and whether worked out or not, I could at least say that I put forth the effort to try. I kept a close eye on it the entire time it was in the crock pot, basically just waiting for something to go wrong. When the time expired and it was officially done, I took my first bite. And guess what!!?? Not only was it edible, it was delicious!! I am going to admit that I did a little happy dance and almost wept tears of joy when I discovered I had prepared my loin to perfection. What can I say, it doesn't take a whole lot to get me excited.
Like I said above, I found this recipe on Pinterest. It is a Brown Sugar and Balsamic glazed tenderloin. You can find the instructions here: http://www.candcmarriagefactory.com/2011/01/brown-sugar-and-balsamic-glazed-pork.html
