Cast Iron Pork Tenderloin with Vegetables and Bacon

It's Friday night and we are in Massachusetts for December therefore it's all about comfort food in my house. I wanted to use my favorite cast iron pan and make a one pot meal perfect for the 2 of us.  It does take a few steps but I actually served from this pan and the flavors were amazing especially the bacon!

This is a perfect dinner for 2 with maybe some left over for lunch the next day for 1 of you..   Enjoy :)

Chefs Note:  You will find below that I want you to remove the pork at 140 degrees.  You don't want it over cooked and when you continue cooking after adding in the vegetables then let rest a few minutes and slice.  The pork will continue cooking.

Creamy Salmon Piccata and Pasta

We have been on the go for all of December and tonight I felt like a comfort salmon dish.  I am starting HEWfit in a few weeks and decided salmon and pasta was a perfect dinner for us.  As an Italian pasta was always a frequent visitor but over the past several years it makes a rare appearance.  When we do eat pasta it's a small amount.  Tonight the salmon will be the star but it will be yummy for us to enjoy!  

Go ahead and give this recipe a try!  I bet it would also be great with spaghetti squash too.

Italian Chicken Loaf stuffed Acorn Squash

In the fall comfort foods seems to make everyone happy!  I love to serve this in an individual bowl for everyone to sit and enjoy each bite!   The ground chicken goes so well with the acorn squash.  You can use ground turkey, beef or pork and still make this meal amazing!
