Resolutions & A Pork Roast

Pin It

It could be bronchitis. It could be whooping cough. It could be a sinus infection. This was the most ambiguous diagnosis I ever got! Or never got?? Whatever the case, I’m hoping this endless cough will disappear. Last night, the hubby and I kept each other up with the loving sounds of our hacking and coughing. It would be funny in a movie, but not when it happens to you three nights in a row.

Over New Year’s Eve dinner, the kids and I had a discussion on resolutions: what they were, why we make them, etc… I asked each one of them what their New Year’s Resolution was, bracing myself with their potential answers.

Professor: I resolve to finish the entire Harry Potter series before the end of the year. (That shouldn’t be hard since he is on book 4)

Middle-Child: I want to get big.

Mommy: You mean eat better foods and exercise more so your body can be big and strong?

Middle Child: Yeah, I want to get big.

Princess: (giggle! giggle!) I want to wake up and use the potty at night.

Mommy: You mean no more accidents in bed?

Princess: (giggle! giggle!)

Professor: Mommy, what is your resolution?

Mommy: I resolve to be a more patient mommy for you all.

Professor: (laugh & snort) Like THAT will happen!

Middle Child: What about Daddy?

Daddy: I don’t need to change anything about me.

Mommy: (buries head in her hands and wishes to go back to bed)

And with that, let me introduce you to this great pork tenderloin roast I made. I love making roasts for dinner because I can serve so many different side dishes with it. I butterflied the tenderloin and spread a layer of prosciutto and basil pesto in the center. Then, I rolled it it up and tied it with twine. It was ready in about 30 minutes and was amazing with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.

Good luck with your own resolutions, unless, of course, you are perfect like my husband thinks he is!

    Oh my this looks yummy! I will definitely give this a try. Hope the hacking stops soon. I feel your pain. I've had the crud for about two weeks but Nyquil has finally let me sleep a bit. Thanks again. Kelly
