Dinner Magnifique!

Dinner Magnifique!


Some nights we just eat.
But tonight I had all this cooking energetic bliss!

I butterflied and stuffed 2 pork tenderloins, one with cream cheese and spinach,
and the other with spinach and bacon.  The later I also wrapped in bacon.

Then after tying them up I browned them in a skillet and then baked them
in the oven in a pre-warmed dish of melted butter.

They were just Lovely to look at an heavenly to eat.
I made whipped Celery, Spinach, Potatoes to serve on the side,
garnished with bacon pieces.

YUMMY!
