Sunday Dinner at the Thompsons

Mr. Thompson LOVES pork tenderloin...I mean LOVES.  So I try to buy it whenever it is on sale and stock it up in the freezer.  The only problem, with my little family of 3...2 loins in one pack is too much. Soooo...this past week I decided to just cook up the one and save the other for tonight's Sunday dinner...good choice because dinner tonight was delicious.

Pork tenderloin sandwiches
(with pasta salad on the side)

I finally went to the grocery store last night and got some produce. Hurray for spinach!  The tomatoes are from the garden and boy am I going to be sad in another month when we are eating store bought again.  Also picked up some crusty rolls and swiss cheese.

Marinade:
1/2 C. soy sauce
1/4 C brown sugar
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
2 cloves garlic
1 lb. tenderloin

You can marinate it for 24 hours, or if you forget (oops), throw it together in the morning while pouring cereal for lil D.  Mr. Thompson grilled ours, to perfection I might add, then I sliced 'em up and put it on the bread with swiss cheese. (I also threw mine under the broiler to melt the swiss).  Add tomatoes and spinach leaves and enjoy. You can really use any marinade on the pork.  I found one that uses pineapple juice I may try the next time...then I'll top it with pineapple instead of tomatoes.  I didn't put any sauce on mine and I didn't feel like it was dry.  Mr. Thompson put some A1 on and said it was good...but plain was also delicious. I am fully aware that Mr. Thompson enjoys my cooking...but he let me know again tonight with praise and accolades.  Funny how much men love good food!
