Before Rachel and I even started Thriving Home (here’s the story if you’re curious), I have been baking this amazing pork tenderloin recipe. I’ve tried out a few others but always come back to this seasoned rub. I love it. My family loves it and it makes a great make-ahead freezer meal.
I didn’t think it could get much better, that was, until we grilled the pork tenderloin instead of baking it.
OH MY GOODNESS. I don’t know what an open flame does to this hunk of meat but good things happen. When you grill a pork tenderloin instead of bake it, you still get the flavor and moistness but the bonus is the extra char-crispiness that coats the outside of the tenderloin.
We won’t go back to baking. We just won’t.
Especially after I learned about the 7-6-5 method of grilling a pork tenderloin.
Once upon a time I had time to sew and made cute things like this.
This easy to sew monster pillow makes for a great gift to almost any age of kid. Fill it with goodies and share the monster love with a kiddo that you want to make smile.
This little guy could also be really cute to use as a tooth-fairy pillow. If I get the time (yeah right) I want to make a girly one for my three year old gal.
Since I actually made this pillow a few years ago I’m a little rusty on how exactly it all came together. Here is a hint of how it all comes together though.
If you want to make your own, check out this monster tooth pillow tutorial put together by The Long Thread. Their tutorial is much better than mine would ever be!
Just in case you wanted to see another cute little monster, here ya go.
I have a new addition to my favorite fall recipes. These pumpkin muffins are soooo good. I wish I would have doubled the recipe to have some to freeze and eat later. They are going fast around these parts. The muffins are hearty, flavorful, packed with nutrition and fall tastes. Simply wonderful.
To be honest, I wasn’t even planning on blogging about these. Since we already have a few pumpkin muffin recipes (Banana Pumpkin Muffins & Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins), I wasn’t looking for another one to add to the blog. However, after I tried it I told Rachel that it was too good not to share.
