Since our move, I have been trying to get back into the groove of planning and cooking healthy dinners for the family. Thankfully, we have had beautiful weather and have been able to eat most meals outside. It seems to put the kids in a better mood during meals which means they have a better attitude towards trying new things and end up eating more! Score!
One of the meals I made last week was a maple-dijon pork tenderloin. Nothing fancy, just some mustard and maple syrup, but boy was it good.
Maple-Dijon Pork Tenderloin
-1lb. pork tenderloin
-1/4 cup dijon mustard
-1/4 cup maple syrup
Rub the mustard and syrup onto the pork tenderloin and leave it to marinate…
Have some fun at the park…
Play in the sand…
Now the pork tenderloin is ready to bake. Preheat the oven to 350 and place the tenderloin on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 30 minutes or until the center has reached 160 degrees.
I served ours with a side of roasted asparagus. After washing and trimming the asparagus, I tossed it with 1 Tbsp. of olive oil and roasted it on a baking sheet. It roasted for the same amount of time as the pork and turned out perfect!
We also had quinoa cooked with chicken stock (quick and easy). Joe asked for seconds.
Leila and Joe both loved this meal…and eating outside.
What has your family been eating lately?
