It is pouring down raining here and we were expecting some ice last night but we managed to dodge the bullet yet again. It is looking pretty dreary outside however a warm comfort recipe always makes dark dank days better. I absolutely love comfort food recipes! They are one of my favorite parts about fall, winter and early spring. Of course you can make comfort food recipes anytime of the year but as the summer heats up you are more likely to indulge in salads and grilled recipes. This Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Vegetables is so delicious and easy. I made this a couple of weeks ago but I was just kind of winging it so yesterday I made it again and got it tuned down to one fine lip smacking dinner recipe.
