Spicy Pork Tenderloin & Flavor Full Sides

My husband is a meat and potatoes man. Whenever I do meatless Mondays, he tries to be such a trooper. But when you’ve been married as long as I have, you can read your spouse’s mind without him saying a single word. My husband hated veggies when he was growing up and when we got […]
