Beef is Not What's for Dinner!

WIDN? Listening to a mixture of my hospital play list which is largely composed of Twilight movie soundtracks from Collins and Collins screaming. The music is supposed to drown her out, but I don't have to fully hear her to know she is still screaming. What do I do? Take the headphones off. Am I trying to punish myself or something??! I mean really, Natalie, wth?! She is absolutely exhausted. Her eyes are red and swollen, but she will not go to sleep. Listening to her screaming makes me feel like a horrible mother. Then, in my "I overanalyze everything" brain, I quickly remind myself that "they" (whoEVER they are) say it is good for them to cry sometimes. Well, a lot of things that are "good for you" are painful. My nerves would be completely shot if not for my anti-anxiety medicine. Ha! But, as I have established previously, I don't take "happy" pills, I take "me" pills, so it is still making my skin crawl to hear her. So, since my Robert Pattinson music, including two songs sung by Mr. Pattinson himself (yeah, that's right...he sings, too), isn't cutting it, I've turned to you. This better work. So...I just finished prepping some new potatoes for dinner tonight. Yes, I like saying that since I have never prepped dinner at 1:00 p.m. before AND it makes me sound like Miss Donna Reed who I would love to be! Forget Martha Stewart! She's crafty, but she has no personality!! At least Donna is sweet and know, unlike me! I'm trying out a couple of new Pinterest recipes that I found. I'll post the links to them below in case you get a wild hair like I did and want to try them. We just always have the same thing: a meat and two vegetables. But since this new medicine makes me not hungry (absolutely not complaining), I am having trouble eating the plain jane meals. Chris and I (and therefore HA) are both really picky eaters, but of course, we are not picky in the same ways. So, it makes trying to be adventurous in the dinner department a little more difficult! So....what is for dinner tonight? Pork tenderloin, potatoes, and something green, but not salad. I hate lettuce. Here are the recipes for the pork tenderloin and potatoes. I'll let you know how they turned out.

Pork tenderloin: (but I'm doing in the oven since I don't yet have a Crock Pot. Don't hate!

  1. Those look yummy! Definitely going to have to try those recipes soon. I'm trying a new one in the crockpot right now. I love stuff I can do in the crockpot.

  2. I love the Twilight soundtrack especially the first one! Roberts song is actually my fave and I love Eyes on Fire. Got your button yesterday.
