    Adventure for me today - first time cooking a beef tenderloin. Googled lots of recipes, made an combo of them.

    Oh my gosh, absolutely succulent, tender, and yummers!

    Sure wish we could afford something like that more often (we got it in a big lot of meat my husband bought, so don't know what it would cost separately).
    Served with a horseradish sauce I made, along with roasted potatoes and carrots.

    My husband looked at what was left because he had helped me get stuff ready for the oven - and couldn't believe the little bit that was left. Well, I sure ate more meat than I usually would at one meal, that's for sure - and I think he and my son did as well.

    Don't think anyone will have room for dessert, but there are sick brownie bites - think those will be a take-home item for our son, and to have on another day for us.

    Thanks lecale, I really have no clue how much this one weighed, it was big - filled a medium sized roaster for length.
    We all had eaten lots, and there was still a fair bit to cut up to give to our son, and enough for us for a small meal as well.

    My son couldn't stop talking about how good a cook I was! Well, he always tells me that, but he thought this was extra yummy!

    from The Pioneer Woman site I'm making chow mein, orange chicken and just having plain white rice

    8 oz thin lo mein noodles
    1 Tbsp peanut oil
    1 carrot, julienned
    ½ head napa cabbage, sliced thin
    ½ onion, sliced
    ¼ cup chicken broth
    ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
    1 tsp sesame oil
    Sliced green onions, for topping

    1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
    2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the peanut oil. Add the carrots, cabbage and onions and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, soy sauce and sesame oil, then toss in the noodles. Top with sliced green onions.

    Chicken

    2 Tbsp cornstarch
    4 egg whites
    4 boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
    Sauce
    ½ cup orange juice, (I used Simply Orange)
    1 Tbsp soy sauce
    1 Tbsp packed brown sugar
    1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
    ¼ tsp sesame oil
    Dash salt
    Dash crushed red pepper
    1 clove garlic, pressed
    A little grated or minced ginger
    1 tsp cornstarch
    Vegetable or peanut oil, for frying

    Chicken

    1. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and egg whites with a fork until almost frothy, about 1 minute. Add the chicken to the mixture and allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
    Sauce
    1. Meanwhile, put the orange juice, soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, salt, crushed red pepper, garlic and ginger in a small nonstick skillet and whisk. Heat until bubbling and starting to thicken, about 5 minutes.
    2. Whisk together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in a small bowl and add 1 to 2 tbsp of the cornstarch slurry to the sauce. Mix in and thicken for 1 minute.
    3. Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed Dutch oven until a deep-fry thermometer inserted in the oil registers 350°F. Carefully drop the chicken into the oil and move it around, ing gently, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Let the pieces drain on a plate lined with paper towels for 2 to 3 minutes. Then drop them back into the oil for 1 minute to really solidify the coating.
    4. Toss the chicken in the sauce and serve.

    Friday night ended up being pork stir-fry over rice (close to mac& cheese right?)

    Saturday I used up half a red pepper, a few mushrooms, half a chicken breast, a partial bag of pasta and 3 jars of canned brushetta mix, topped with cheese and baked until melted.

    Sunday I made perogie casserole, some how the perogies ended up in the wrong freezer and we freezer burnt, but once baked in the sauce you could not tell.

    Tonight we have to go out so dinner on the go, now to decide what I am craving.

    Mmmm....how did you cook it? Roasted?

    I am just about to place a meat order and planning on 3 or so tenderloins. We age them and cut them into steaks...about $17/kg though but it's a treat.

    mmmmm perogie casserole? That sounds great! I will have to google the recipe. I usually fry my perogies with onion and garlic and eat with sour cream, green onion, bacon bits, cheese etc. Haven't had that in awhile, time to put it back in rotation.

    But tonight, I am stealing Padyo's idea. Tuna fish sammies sounds good - it's been years!

    @KelJo - are the pioneer woman's recipes any good? I've been watching her shows on TV lately and her recipes seem easy which I like.

    ^ Yes, they are great recipes, I've also made a couple of the pasta recipes and steak fingers. I've been watching her shows as well and looked her up online as her recipes are straightforward. I will definitely be trying more

    WOW, $17/Kg is a great price, we get a cheap Sirloin for that price. Send a few our way.

    Is it? Great!! I thought it was a bit expensive, but haven't done much price comparing. We get it right from the butcher/meat packer as a wholesale order a few times a year. They also have garlic bacon
