It’s the holiday squeeze now. That’s what I call it anyway. I’m being squeezed by commitments left and right. It’s not a bad thing, mind you, I’m blessed with many wonderful people in my life. Still I’m feeling a bit squeezed.

Even though it’s a busy time, we still have to eat, right? I love the pre-seasoned pork tenderloins you can buy at the store. It’s true that they have more salt added than I would normally use, but they make a quick meal, and that’s what I need right now.

It was a breeze to throw the tenderloin and the veggies in the oven at the same time. I was able to get some treadmill time in while my meal roasted happily in the oven
