Since I've revamped my blog, I have had a few things in mind that I wanted to incorporate not only into the blog, itself, but also my weekly menu planning. But, I have to remember to do one thing at a time and not get ahead of myself (which is easy for me to do when my mind is going a million miles a minute)! One of the new things I have added into my weekly menu planning and posting is Fake-Out Take-Out Friday, where I (on most Fridays) plan my own take on our favorite take-out foods! Another new feature I have started to incorporate starting this past week is Sunday Suppers at Home, highlighting a home cooked dinner that is reminiscent of my childhood, where we had sit-down dinners together as a family every Sunday!
This week, as I am pulling things out of the freezer to use up, I decided to make a Roasted Pork Loin and let it cook all day long in the crockpot! Dinners seem to taste the best when you can throw everything into a big pot and let it cook all day long! This recipe was one of those that, literally, had less than 5 minutes of prep time and just did it's thing in the crockpot while I ran errands and tackled some chores around the house! When it was time to pull the pork out and we were ready to eat, I barely had to use a knife to cut it - it was so juicy and tender; it literally just melted in our mouths!
