Tonight we are running around, getting the dogs set to go to dog camp and getting Hedwig ready for the aviary- our normal pre-vacation routine. I had defrosted two pork tenderloins and stopped for a few seconds to throw stuff on them and put them in the oven. I didn't follow a recipe, I just wanted something different but didn't have time to put much thought into it. I sliced zucchini and onion and sprinkled garlic powder, salt and pepper on them, and put those in the bottom of a baking dish with a little olive oil. I placed the tenderloins over the top, and covered each with two strips of bacon. I decided to fill the space in between them with a drained can of peaches. Into the oven at 425 for an hour until they reached an internal temperature of 155 degrees. I also baked a few yukon gold potatoes while the pork was cooking.
I don't know if these photos do it justice. This was a really good dish, very different. All the different flavors fused together. That was the best part about it- each part alone was tasty, but everything together was the perfect combination of flavors and they all complimented each other. I am not sure I could make this again if I tried, it was one of those unscripted, spur of the moment combinations, but it was fantastic. The success of this meal has inspired me to be more creative in the kitchen- I might hit on a few good ideas that I can build on. I'll be back next week- in the meantime, why don't you try mixing it up a bit in the kitchen? You might discover a new taste or a new family favorite...and the eggs.
