Favorite. Find. Ever.

IMG_2061 Found this for $1 at an estate sale with my girlfriends a couple weeks ago. It was just lying in an empty garage with a dozen or so other books. I almost jumped for joy when I found it. After watching Julie and Julia, who wouldn't want a copy? It's a 1966 printing, and it a little worn, which makes it just about perfect. Nothing I love more than finding a treasure like this! We may or may not have been fearing for our lives as four young (we're still young right?), pretty girls in a house alone with an apparently drunk man and his dog, but I wasn't leaving without this book! Haha! {P.S. We did some major thrifting as well; separate post forthcoming on that...and how much I love Goodwill!} IMG_2064 IMG_2069 IMG_2068 IMG_2067

Firehouse Recipes: Pork Medallions over Crusty Bread

My sister is a firefighter and most often cooks the meal for her shift.  She sent this one to me recently and it's too good and easy not to share!  Got some marinating in the fridge as we speak...

Happy weekend!


2 yellow onions
1 stick of butter
1 1/2 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons dry ground mustard
3 teaspoons garlic powder
pork tenderloin (she uses 2 1/2 lbs at the station - you can buy a 2-pack at Costco)
Crusty bread....or buns.

Coarsely chop onions and saute in butter.  While onions and butter are in skillet turn heat off and add soy sauce, water, brown sugar, mustard, garlic powder. Place tenderloin(s) in a 9x13 glass dish and pour the warm marinade over the meat. let sit in fridge for 2 hours. When ready, place in oven at 375. bake for 35 min and then take dish out to cut pork into 1/2 in medallions. Place back into the oven for 10 minutes. Serve over crusty bread...... ENJOY!!!..
