Okay, I’m a little behind on my dinner menu posting (I had the flu, did not want to even think about food for a while). Here’s what we had two weeks ago.
Entree: Fennel-Crusted Pork Tenderloin
We weren’t really watching the pork and it became more blackened than fennel-crusted but it was still pretty good. It was our fault and next time we try this dish, we will be much more careful.
Side Dish: Green Beans with Crushed Walnuts
Nothing spectacular. Just green beans. With crushed walnuts. Boring.
Dessert: Nutty Apple Muffins
1 ½ cups flour
1 cup & 2 tbsp sugar
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1/3 cup vegetable oil
¾ tsp salt
2 cups diced peeled apples
½ tsp nutmeg
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts
¾ cup coconut (flaked)
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, & nutmeg. Beat eggs, sugar & oil. Stir in apples, nuts and coconut. Stir in dry ingredients until just moistened. Fill muffin cups ¾ full. Bake at 350F for 25-30 min. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to wire rack.
Very good muffins. Would be awesome for a brunch as well. Vanilla ice cream complemented the dessert.
