Meal Plan Monday...

Well...even though the no eating out month is over...I want to keep it going a little...we shall see, especially with Christmas so close and more to do then I have time for right now...Oh well...I can try.

What the plan is for food this week:

Sunday: cornbread stuffing stuffed bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin (Costco 2009 cookbook)
Monday: Mac & Cheese with apples and Kielbasa (from Boiled Hotdogs)--YUMMY!
Tuesday: Sausage and Egg strata (costco 2009 cookbook)
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: the boys are on their own, as I will be at a girl's dinner
Friday: Business Dinner
Saturday: Leftovers

Sunday's meal recipe:

3 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
4 additional slices uncooked
2 T butter
1/2 c. onion
1/3 c. diced apple (I used a gala)
1/4 c. chopped celery
1 garlic clove chopped
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp. each of salt and pepper
3/4 c cornbread stuffing
1/3 c. apple cider
1 pork tenderloin

Preheat oven to 375*. Cook bacon till crisp and remove from pan, crumble and set aside. Carefully dump out all but about 1 T of grease. Add butter and allow to melt. Add onion, apple, celery, garlic, poultry seasoning, salt & pepper. Saute till onion is soft. Add bacon back in along with cornbread stuffing and enough apple cider to moisten stuffing (I used all of the 1/3 c). Place 4 uncooked slices of bacon (I actually used 6) in a baking dish (width ways). Place tenderloin on top of bacon and slice tenderloin down middle (lengthwise) but not all the way through. Place stuffing mixture down middle of tenderloin then wrap bacon around the tenderloin. Don't try to close it all the way up...leave tenderloin open. Bake for 40-45 minutes and let set 10 minutes before cutting.

***This was really good...even Lil D ate a ton of the pork and stuffing.
