March 20th

I made the best pork tenderloin tonight.   Even my picky eater thought it was wonderful

Caramelized Pork Slices

1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1 inch slices

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tbsp. orange juice

1 tbsp. molasses

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

Lightly drizzle 1-2 tsp. olive oil in a non-stick skillet.  Over medium high heat cook pork 8-10 minutes.  Drain if necessary.  Whisk remaining ingredients together and pour over cooked pork.  Cook till mixture thickens and coats pork.  About 8-10 more minutes.  I served this over brown basmati rice.  

The boy did much better today, and said that he could handle tables by himself today.  He was much more comfortable with everything.  I knew that he would do wonderful today.  As my friend Melanie says, He is marvelous!

For all of my fabulous readers, a question….what do you do while you are surfing the net?  munch on chocolate? pick your nose?  file your nails?  What????  Let me know, I am curious!

Now for our last lesson on the tongue.

29.  The Indiscreet Tongue

Indiscretion can be costly.  Some subject matters should simply be off limits for discussion.  One who is discreet shows prudence and wise self-restraint in speech AND behavior.  It always reaps a positive consequence.

Proverbs 2:11~~Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.

30.  The Silent Tongue

Silence is not golden when one uses it as a pay-back to express ones anger or displeasure with a person or situation.  Silence is not golden when we refust to defend someone against the unwarranted criticism or vicious rumors.  We can not let our fear of alienation or rejection cause us to allow slander or character assassinations whe we are well aware of facts to the contrary.  Slience is not golden when it results in us making an undesirable decision by default.  After all, silence can indicate consent.  We must be willing to speak up for what is right and Godly.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1,7~~There is a time for everythign, and a season for every activity under heaven…a time to be silent and a time to speak.

  1. I’m not a bit surprised your son did better today.. he IS marvelous. 🙂 If I had a few hundred to spare, I’d visit you and we would go to this lovely establishment and sit at one of his tables. lol Just thinking about it makes me smile. 🙂

    So.. you want to know what I do when I surf the net. 😀 I listen to rock’n’roll music and drink water or coffee.

    I really like your tongue lessons. I think I have already told you, but telling you again is good too. 😀

  2. I am glad he did better today. The first day is always the hardest I think!! You recipe looks yumo!! My hubby has the book from which you are doing your tongue taming writings…. if only he had followed it all the way though…lol!!
    What do I do while surfing? I guess it depends on my mood…. I can always munch on chocolate!! In the morning I usually have my cup of tea. That is the only thing I do regular while online though!!

  3. Yes, he is Marvelous! With a capital M!

    What do I do when I surf the net? Well, if you must know, I ponder my navel. Not many people can combine surfing and navel gazing, but as you know, it’s all about me.

    Actually, I’m very much like Donna, only it’s rock ‘n roll and iced tea or vodka tonic. It depends on what time it is. 😛

  4. I am glad the boy did better today. He just needed to get familiar with everything.

    That recipe looks very good!

    While surfing the ‘net I am usually having my coffee and making sure the Dc have all their needed printouts for school.

  5. First while surfing I usually eat, trying to make it healthy, drink coffee or water, watch TV or crochet.

    As for your son – of course he did better today! He’s been homeschooled all his life so he knows to learn from his mistakes and he had a terrific teacher to whom is was dilligent about listening to. 🙄

    And not for the tongue lessons…..

    OUCH.

  6. I knew that he would do better today. He is going to wow them all. I just know it. The recipe looks very good. I am going to have to try that one. I think that my kids would eat it too. I usually have a pork tenderloin in the freezer.

    What do I do while I surf the net. I usually have something to drink. Occasionally, I will snack on something, but not very often. Most of the time I just surf. Man, I am boring. 🙂

  7. I often come up here to have lunch or supper or something. Right now I am eating decadent spoonfulls of dulce de leche from a can. Terrible, huh. 🙂

  8. I’m glad Dean is enjoying his job and catching on so quickly 🙂 As for what I do while surfing the net, well first of all I only pick my nose in the mornings while on the computer and waiting for my coffee to finish brewing; then I drink my coffee, maybe have an English muffin and snack on chocolate chips here and there 😉

  9. I don’t do anything while surfing the Net. I read what I am looking for. Or, I am telling the kids to leave me alone. 😀

    Glad to hear the boy did better today. We all knew he would. 🙂

  10. Glad the day was better for Dean

    As for surfing the net………….well with no speed service I am usually print of course work and ALWAYS have my knitting on my lap ( knit here ,purl there) and have my current scripture reading on the desk so I can TRY and keep up.

  11. I’m so glad that the boy is enjoying the new job. He’ll be great. The recipe looks really good will have to try it.
    While I sit and surf I am usually drinking coffee or sucking on lemon drops (those are mt fav).

  12. Tanya, I make a very simillar pork dish to you, only with mine I add a tablespoon of sour cream at the end.

    When surfing I am always drinking either tea or coffee. Maybe eating a banana or piece of fruit. Occasionally picking my nose because I hate having boogers in my nose. And usually fielding wierd questions from the kids.
