Roasted Pork Tenderloin Drizzled in Maple-Orange Sauce

Happy New Year slash almost February!

I had a few brunch-related posts all ready to go before Christmas, in case anyone needed some inspiration for Christmas morning or New Year's Day brunch, but then I got lazy (even though it's scientifically impossible for the mother of a 10-month old to be lazy).  And now it's January 30.  So, maybe next year!

We had so much fun with the Little Man's first Christmas!  From the taste of the needles on our fake Christmas tree, to squealing at the snow from our living room window, to the endless amusement derived from an empty cardboard wrapping paper roll, he loved Christmas.  He even tolerated sitting on the lap of the mall Santa with horrible mothball breath.

We spent the evening of Christmas Eve with my side of the family at my parents house, and then Christmas Day we were at the Hubby's aunt's house, then on Boxing Day we were back with my family, and then on the day after Boxing Day we were back with The Hubby's family.  So there was a lot of eating and drinking.  For Christmas Eve dinner I brought a chocolate peppermint cake that no one wanted to eat after the gigantic dinner that my mom prepared (except my brother - yay for bottomless pit brothers!!!).  For Christmas Day dinner I brought a spicy cranberry cream cheese spread appetizer that seemed to disappear quickly.  For Boxing Day my dad basically bought every appetizer in Costco, so I came empty-handed (although I did birth a grandchild for them, just saying).  And then on the day after Boxing Day I brought my yummy Parsnip and Carrot Puree.

And now it's January diet time!  I feel like I write this same post every year.  Fun, fattening recipes in December, and clean, boring recipes in January.  Oh, traditions - ha!

I've been using my Looneyspoons cookbook a lot this month.  Every recipe is a winner, and they are all healthy or low calorie, but secretly delicious.  I've also been trying to use up some of the meat lurking in my freezer, so I thawed out a pork tenderloin and decided to give this roasted pork tenderloin in maple-orange sauce a try.  The Hubby said that this may be the best pork he has ever had.  I asked, "best pork tenderloin?"  He responded, "no, best pork of any pork."  So you know this is a keeper in our house.  I served it with a vegetable fried rice, another recipe from the Looneyspoons cookbook.  We will be making it again!

Happy new year everyone!
