Here, Piggy Piggy

Home for the holidays. I know that I usually post a little story about something or other related to recent TTENG life events, but I really do not know what to say. I am grateful to be surrounded by my family and close friends; it has been a rough year, that’s for sure. I feel broken and tired; I am fearful for the year to come. But I also very much live in a world where I cannot say more than that.

So, here’s a stuffed pork tenderloin. Enjoy!

  3. Butterfly the tenderloin and season the “outside” with salt and pepper. When the pear/scallion mix has softened, smear the mix along the “inside”.
