Sweet and Smoky Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple and Peppers

Sweet and Smoky Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple and Peppers - Chew Nibble Nosh

Sorry, guys.  I know I’ve been a little lax lately in sharing new recipes with you.  Summer is TOUGH, though!  I’d love to say our summer schedule is nothing but laziness, pool days, and endless time, but anyone with kids knows that it just isn’t. We’re having a great summer so far, but it’s keeping me on my toes, and unfortunately, not in the kitchen (or at the computer) as often as the obsessive-compulsive blogger part of me would like. I know you’re busy too, so I’m sure you understand. Don’t give up on me.  I’m still here!  Just making my way through the season.

Pork and Mushroom Stew with Apple-Potato Mash

Pork and Mushroom Stew with Apple-Potato Mash - Chew Nibble Nosh

When my mom came to me about this recipe, and told me how good it was, I was a little bit skeptical.  I’m not a huge mushroom fan, but I’m learning to accept them and, even better, eat them without gagging.  So, when she told me about this amazing, and different, pork and mushroom stew, I was a little leery.

But, as usual…she was right.

Always listen to your Mama.

This dish is actually quite simple to throw together, and the result is pretty spectacular.  It’s not your everyday meat and potatoes dish, and is the perfect thing to warm you up when the Winter wind is (still…) howling.

Turkey Veronique with Thyme Butter Sauce

Don’t let that pretty plate fool you.

This dinner was delicious, and so simple to throw together that we had it on a weeknight!  From start to finish, it can be done in less than thirty minutes.

This also means that this would be a great Fall dish to entertain with, because you could spend most of your entertaining time with the people you’re entertaining!  Just make sure to have the turkey prepped and everything measured out beforehand, and it would make things super simple.  It would even make a great Thanksgiving dinner for a smaller crowd.  It’s turkey, right?  Throw some Thanksgiving-ish sides in with it, and you’re good to go!
